Third Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights
- Net revenue increased 17% to $17.0 million from $14.5 million in the third quarter of 2014, driven principally by increases in our DHS BPA expansion, partially offset by decreases in software reselling activities within our managed services offerings.
- Gross profit was $3.1 million compared to $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2014, which, as in the prior quarter, supports extra capacity for expanded next-generation identity management services and managed mobility services.
- Adjusted EBITDA loss was approximately $1.1 million compared to $404,000 in the third quarter of 2014, driven by continued technology, sales and marketing, and infrastructure investments in support of our next-generation identity management services and managed mobility services.
- Net loss was approximately $1.8 million compared to net loss of approximately $5.9 million in the third quarter of 2014 or basic and diluted loss per share of 0.02 per share compared to $0.08 in the third quarter of 2014.
James McCubbin, WidePoint’s chief financial officer, stated, “Our financial results in the third quarter of 2015 were weaker than we expected as a result of delays in anticipated contract awards. While we did receive awards late in the third quarter and early in the fourth quarter of 2015, including new initial task orders from one of the last three agencies remaining to be won under our DHS BPA contract, the timing put us behind schedule. We still remain confident, timing issues aside, that we will continue to win additional work under our DHS BPA. We believe that our revenues, gross margins, and overall financial metrics and results, should improve, as our new next-generation identity management services come on line.”
Steve L. Komar, WidePoint’s chief executive officer, stated, “We continue to make great strides in our development efforts of our next generation identity management services and channel marketing efforts with our strategic partners. While contract delays caused some timing issues that negatively effected our financial performance in the third quarter of 2015, we remain confident in our products and services, and in the increasing demand we see for them in the market today and in the future, in both the government and commercial sectors.”
