Third Quarter Revenue of $17.2 Million and Adjusted EBITDA of $(3.3) Million

FREMONT, Calif., November 12, 2015 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE) today announced financial results for its fiscal 2015 third quarter ended September 30, 2015. For the third quarter, total revenues were $17.2 million, GAAP gross profit margin was 44%, and adjusted EBITDA was $(3.3) million.

“We are pleased with the growth in our premises business with new demand from our government and commercial customers, as well as launching our ICPAM solution in support of our new partnership with Cisco,” said Steven Humphreys, Identiv CEO. “Throughout the quarter, we have implemented activities to strengthen the focus of resources on these key areas.   As an organization, we will exit the year streamlined to support our focus in existing markets and partnerships, which we believe will allow us to grow the business with a path to profitability in 2016.”

Third Quarter Financial Highlights Review

  • Total revenues were $17.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 compared to $15.6 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $22.7 million in the third quarter of 2014, reflecting a sequential growth of 10% and a decline of 24% from the third quarter of 2014. The sequential growth was mainly driven by stronger sales of physical access products in our premises segment, which grew over 20%. The decline from the third quarter of 2014 is primarily a result of 39% lower revenues in our credential segment.
  • GAAP gross profit margin increased to 44% in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, compared to 43% in the second quarter of 2015 and 43% in the third quarter of 2014. This was primarily driven by our product mix, reflecting a higher portion of revenues in our premises segment and a lower portion of sales in our credentials segment.
  • GAAP operating expenses, including research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative costs, but excluding restructuring charges and goodwill impairment, were $13.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2015, compared to $12.9 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2014. This reflects a sequential increase of 1% and a year over year increase of 23%, both primarily the result of the continued expenditures related to legal and accounting professional fees associated with non-core business activities.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015 was $(3.3) million, compared to $(4.2) million in the second quarter of 2015 and $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2014, predominantly reflecting the continuing legal and accounting professional fees since the second quarter of 2015.
  • GAAP net loss was $(6.2) million in the third quarter of 2015, or $(0.57) per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $(7.4) million, or $(0.67) per share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2015 and GAAP net loss of $(3.8) million, or $(0.46) per share in the third quarter of 2014. The third quarter of 2015 included restructuring costs of $0.2 million compared to restructuring costs of $0.02 million in the second quarter of 2015 and restructuring costs of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2014.
