We plan to build on our strong customer base and partner networks and at the same time invest in direct go to market capabilities. We have refocused our strategy around a core group of customers in the Human Services Provider space where we have a unique and differentiated product value proposition, including auditing, compliance and reporting. We have reallocated resources in all areas of the company to support the new strategy, including Professional Services, Development, and Sales while at the same time investing in ‘go to market’ tools to assist us in demand and lead generation, which will allow us to better control our own destiny.”

“We are disappointed that the Company just fell short of extending its streak of six consecutive quarters of top-line growth. However, we are encouraged by the continued growth in our SaaS revenues. As we continue to focus on increasing our SaaS-based revenues we recognize that short term revenue recognition on subscription services is generally lower than upfront premise license sales. We believe this investment and focus will bear greater revenue consistency in the future, higher growth and will deliver long-term value to shareholders,” DeSocio concluded.

  • Hired lead generation expert to assist in creating and driving new outbound mailing campaigns.
  • Built new content, white papers, case studies, fact sheets.
  • Generated first two outbound email campaign series to our primary target industries.
  • Educated partner channel with new strategy, and supported “through partner” marketing efforts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

Intellinetics uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).

A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of our liquidity. Intellinetics urges investors to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable GAAP Net Loss, which is included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Intellinetics’ financial performance.

We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure and is used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as earnings before interest expense, any income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, and other non-cash expenses such as share-based compensation, note conversion warrant expense and other financing related transaction costs.
