Management Commentary

“We continue to make progress securing our position as a leading solutions provider in the IoT sector, with RFID revenue up 41% year-over-year,” said Identiv CEO Steven Humphreys. “We’re designing and delivering next-generation solutions that are enabling the future of the IoT. As shown by our increasing growth rate in RFID revenue and record number of NRE projects for a broadening range of use cases, our pipeline of RFID projects is very strong. Moreover, our transformational projects in medical devices, cannabis, prescriptions, and mobile devices are all on track, and in some cases expanding to potential new customers and use cases. We’re expanding our Singapore capacity to meet this fast growing demand and are working on a second location in Southeast Asia to position our business for significantly higher volumes next year.” “We’re well-positioned to continue growing strongly regardless of the macroeconomic environment. We expect demand in our core end markets – medical devices in RFID and security in Premises – to be recession-resistant. Furthermore, we are laser focused on expanding our margins, building upon the progress we have made as we work towards achieving scale. Our above-plan non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA reflects strong execution of our RFID and Premises growth strategy, which remains our top priority in 2022. Combined with the sustained outperformance of our Premises business and proactive supply chain management, we expect to maintain our strategic growth trajectory through the second half of 2022 and into 2023.” Identiv CFO Justin Scarpulla added, “Our second quarter financial performance reflects our continued progress towards reaching our longterm operating model, with the delivery of sequential and year-over-year growth in revenue, sequential increase in gross profit margin and positive non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA. Our total backlog of orders grew 23% year-over-year, reflecting the accelerating market demand for our specialty RFID solutions. We have maintained a strong, debt-free balance sheet and healthy cash position to secure our ability to meet our working capital needs. With our team’s strong execution and our current visibility into the second half of 2022, we expect to be able to sustain our positive operating momentum.”
