NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 14, 2019 / INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ: INOD) today reported results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2018.

  • Total revenue was $15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a 7% increase from $14.0 million in the third quarter of 2018. Total revenue was $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.
  • Net income was $50,000 in the fourth quarter of 2018, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.7 million in the third quarter of 2018, or $0.03 per diluted share. Net loss in the fourth quarter of 2017 was $2.1 million, or $(0.08) per diluted share.
  • Total revenue for the 12 months ended December 31, 2018 was $57.4 million, a decline of 6% from $60.9 million in the 12 months ended December 31, 2017.
  • Net income was $4,000 (which includes a $675,000 non-cash goodwill impairment charge for the DDS segment), or $0.00 per diluted share, in the 12 months ended December 31, 2018, compared to a net loss of $5.1 million (which includes $2.4 million in one-time costs and charges), or $(0.20) per diluted share, in the 12 months ended December 31, 2017.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) was $1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2018 and $(1.7) million in the fourth quarter of 2017, which includes $1.1 million in restructuring charges and a $1.2 million loss contingency reserve. Adjusted EBITDA for the 12 months ended December 31, 2018 was $6.7 million compared to $(0.7) million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2017.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $10.9 million at December 31, 2018, compared to $11.4 million at December 31, 2017.

Some amounts in this press release may not add due to rounding. All percentages have been calculated using unrounded amounts.

The tables that accompany this release set out results by segment.

Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and CEO, said, ”In 2018 we achieved Adjusted EBITDA of $6.7 million, an increase of $7.4 million from an Adjusted EBITDA loss of $700,000 in 2017. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue was 12% in 2018, an increase of 13 percentage points from (1)% of revenue in 2017. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA reflects the successful execution in 2018 of the turn-around operating plan we initiated in late 2017. In 2018 we continued the development and implementation of our AI-based solutions, enabling us to drive operating and cost efficiencies.

”Revenue in our Digital Data Solutions (DDS) segment was $11.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a 7% increase from revenue of $10.8 million in the third quarter of 2018. Revenue in the fourth quarter exceeded the high end of our guidance by $0.7 million primarily as a result of higher than anticipated volume of work from one customer during the quarter. In 2018, Adjusted EBITDA for the DDS segment as a percentage of revenue was 16%, an increase of 13 percentage points from 3% of revenue in 2017.

”Revenue in our Synodex segment was $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a 4% increase from revenue of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2018. Synodex remained profitable throughout 2018, with Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue of 11%, an increase of 35 percentage points from (24)% of revenue in 2017.”

Abuhoff continued, ”Revenue in our Agility segment was $2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, a 7% increase from revenue of $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2018. In the fourth quarter of 2018 we began to see the benefits from the increased sales capacity added in the third quarter, with a 54% increase in the dollar value of bookings in the fourth quarter over the third quarter. In 2018, Adjusted EBITDA for the Agility segment as a percentage of revenue was (7)%, an improvement of 7 percentage points from (14)% of revenue in 2017.”

Abuhoff concluded, ”We anticipate first quarter revenue to be in the range of $13.0 – $13.6 million, consisting of DDS revenue in the range of $9.6 – $10.0 million, Synodex revenue in the range of $1.0 – $1.1 million, and Agility revenue in the range of $2.4 – $2.5 million.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include references to Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Innodata Inc. and subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP before income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, goodwill impairment, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, stock-based compensation, loss attributable to non-controlling interests and interest income (expense). We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our management and investors in evaluating our operating performance and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. In particular, it facilitates comparisons of the core operating performance of our company from period to period on a consistent basis and helps us identify underlying trends in our business. We believe it provides useful information about our operating results, enhances the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in our financial and operational decision making. We use this measure to establish operational goals for managing our business and evaluating our performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax payments, and such payments reflect a reduction in cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs or for our cash expenditures or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the potential dilutive impact of stock-based compensation expense related to our workforce, interest income (expense) and net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, and these items may represent a reduction or increase in cash available to us;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our own industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered alongside other financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net income (loss) and our other GAAP results.

A reconciliation from net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA is attached to this release.
