Identiv Reports Second Quarter 2015 Results

Second Quarter Revenue of $15.6 Million and Adjusted EBITDA of $(4.2) Million

FREMONT, Calif., August 13, 2015 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE) today announced financial results for the second quarter (Q2) of 2015. For the second quarter, total revenues were $15.6 million, GAAP gross profit margin was 43% and adjusted EBITDA was $(4.2) million.

“While we are disappointed in the slower than anticipated start to 2015, we are confident in Identiv’s overall strategy with the recent addition of new global customers and strategic partners. We are continuing to focus on the growth areas and have begun implementing cost-reduction activities focused on strengthening our core business of providing identities, as well as ensuring our resources are focused on customer roll-outs and revenue-generating products,” said Jason Hart, Identiv CEO.

“As we look forward, we expect to see roll-outs becoming more predictable with large government and multinational customers during the second half of 2015. For example, we are on schedule to release our new premises products as part of our partnership with Cisco this quarter. Additionally, our uTrust TS Reader line was recently certified and approved by the U.S. government, which will help improve the roll-out timeframes with U.S. government customers.”

Second Quarter Financial Highlights Review
In reviewing the results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2015, all figures are compared to the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, unless stated otherwise:

  • Total revenues were $15.6 million compared with $22.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 and $14.9 million in the first quarter of 2015. The Company saw stable sales in its premises products but deferred more than $3.2 million in credential sales, which is expected to be recognized in the third quarter of 2015. The decline in the identity reader segment in international regions compared to 2014 continued.

  • The Company has experienced an increase in large customer wins including a major international airline, multiple government agencies and large technology companies, but has seen delays in deployment of these projects resulting in delayed revenue for the quarter.

  • GAAP gross profit margin increased to 43%, compared to 40%, primarily due to product mix and an increase in premises margin, partially offset by a decrease in identity reader margins.

  • Base operating expenses, which include research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative costs were $12.9 million, compared to $10.3 million, up 25%. This is primarily the result of an increase in general and administrative (G&A) related expenditures due to a significant increase in legal and accounting professional fees associated with non-core business activities.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $(4.2) million, compared to $(0.4) million, predominantly reflecting the decrease in revenues and the increase in legal and accounting professional fees.

  • GAAP net loss from continuing operations was $(7.4) million in the second quarter of 2015, or $(0.67) per share, compared to a GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $(2.7) million, or $(0.34) per share. The second quarter of 2015 included restructuring costs of $0.02 million and impairment charges related to goodwill of $1.0 million, compared to restructuring costs of $0.6 million and no impairment charges in the second quarter of 2014.

  • The Company was awarded two additional patents since the start of the second quarter.

  • Cash was $30.8 million at June 30, 2015, compared with $36.5 million at December 31, 2014.

    Note: Financial results contained in this release reflect the continuing operations of Identiv only and exclude discontinued operations of non-core businesses sold in December 2013, February 2014, and June 2014.

As previously stated in a press release on August 4, 2015, the Company is providing guidance for fiscal year 2015 of revenue between $65 million and $70 million and expects adjusted EBITDA to be positive on a run rate basis in the fourth quarter of 2015.
