  • Total revenue was $13.7 million in the first quarter of 2019, a 9% decrease from $15.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2018, and a 3% decrease from $14.1 million in the first quarter of 2018.

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, ”Our total revenue in the first quarter of 2019 exceeded the high end of our guidance by $0.1 million. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue was 3% in the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of 7 percentage points from 10% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA is primarily attributable to the Digital Data Solutions (DDS) segment where Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue decreased 8 percentage points to 6% of revenue in the first quarter from 14% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 due to lower revenue in the DDS segment in the first quarter. Revenue in our DDS segment was $10.2 million in the first quarter of 2019, an 11% decrease from revenue of $11.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. This decrease primarily results from lower volumes of work during the first quarter from several existing customers as compared to volumes received from these customers in the fourth quarter of 2018.

”Revenue in our Synodex segment was $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2019, a 3% decrease from revenue of $1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. The decline in revenue is attributable to lower than expected volume of work from one customer during the quarter. We added two new customers in the first quarter and also expanded our business with an existing customer. Adjusted EBITDA for the Synodex segment as a percentage of revenue was 16% in the first quarter, a decrease of 2 percentage points from 18% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018.

”Revenue in our Agility segment was $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2019, a 2% increase from revenue of $2.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. In the first quarter the dollar value of bookings increased by 18% from the fourth quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the Agility segment as a percentage of revenue was (10)% in the first quarter of 2019, an improvement of 5 percentage points from (15)% in the fourth quarter of 2018.”

Abuhoff continued, ”The special committee of the board, the formation of which we announced in December 2017, has concluded its assessment of our business segments. In May 2019 the board reformulated the special committee as the strategy committee which will liaise with management on certain strategic initiatives of the business.”

Abuhoff concluded, ”We anticipate second quarter revenue to be in the range of $13.1 – $13.9 million, consisting of DDS revenue in the range of $9.6 – $10.0 million, Synodex revenue in the range of $0.8 – $1.1 million, and Agility revenue in the range of $2.7 – $2.8 million.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include references to Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Innodata Inc. and its subsidiaries in accordance with GAAP before income taxes, depreciation, amortization of intangible assets, impairment charges, 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, Adjusted EBITDA 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.
