The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under the “Safe Harbor Statement” below.
For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, the company is reiterating its revenue guidance of $90.0 million to $93.0 million, representing growth of 8% to 12%. The company is also reiterating its adjusted EBITDA guidance of $2.75 million to $3.5 million, which represents an improvement compared to fiscal 2018. The increase in adjusted EBITDA reflects the company’s strategic investments in sales and marketing and product development to accelerate growth, as well as a $400,000 increase due to new Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidance regarding the treatment of capital lease. The company’s financial outlook is based on current expectations.
“The second quarter was a continuation of the strong performance we established at the start of the year as we delivered another solid period of financial results, expanded several contracts with current customers, and continued to improve upon our already industry-leading credentials,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “From a financial perspective, the quarter was highlighted by a 26% increase in revenues, a 14% increase in gross profit, and our eighth consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA.
“Operationally, we successfully re-secured and expanded several contracts with current customers in both the government and commercial sectors. These contract expansions and the positive effects they have on our financial results show that our cross-selling and upselling strategies continue to be an effective means of increasing our topline as we simultaneously remain conscientious of their effects on our bottom-line. Additionally, we received an ATO from a major customer to implement ITMS™, which is a major step toward ultimately receiving a FedRAMP certification.
“Overall, we remain confident that we will be able to continue to execute on our primary strategic initiatives throughout the course of the year to accelerate growth, improve margins, and drive higher profitability in the long-run.”
