Innodata Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Results

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / March 8, 2018 / INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ: INOD) today reported results for the fourth quarter and the twelve months ended December 31, 2017.

  • Total revenue was $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, a 5% increase from $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. Total revenue was $15.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • Net loss was $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2017, or $(0.08) per diluted share, compared to a $1.1 million net loss in the third quarter of 2017, or $(0.04) per diluted share, and a $1.0 million net loss in the fourth quarter of 2016, or $(0.04) per diluted share. The loss in the fourth quarter of 2017 reflects $1.1 million in restructuring charges and a $1.2 million loss contingency reserve for the legal proceeding the Company reported in its Form 8-K filed on February 16, 2018.
  • Total revenue for the 12 months ended December 31, 2017 was $60.9 million, a decline of 3% from $63.1 million in 2016. Net loss was $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, compared to a net loss of $5.5 million (which includes $3.2 million in one-time costs and charges), or $(0.22) per diluted share, in 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) was $(1.7) million in the fourth quarter of 2017, taking into account the restructuring charge and loss contingency reserve referred to above, compared to $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2017 and $0.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the 12 months ended December 31, 2017 was $(0.7) million compared to $0.7 million for the 12 months ended December 31, 2016.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $11.4 million at December 31, 2017 compared to $14.2 million at December 31, 2016.

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

Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and CEO, said, "Our consolidated revenue in the fourth quarter exceeded the higher end of our guidance. On a segment basis, revenue in our Digital Data Solutions (DDS) segment was $12 million in the fourth quarter, compared to revenue of $11.6 million in the third quarter. We expect that our overall costs, primarily for DDS, will be reduced by $3.5 million in 2018 as a result of personnel reductions and facility consolidations. Our $1.2 million restructuring charge in 2017 is on account of severance costs related to the cost reduction.

"Revenue in our Innodata Advanced Data Solutions (IADS) segment in the fourth quarter exceeded third quarter revenue by $150,000, and the segment was profitable in the fourth quarter. Revenue in our Media Intelligence Solutions (MIS) segment was $2.3 million in the fourth quarter, a 6% increase over the third quarter. We are seeing improvements in MIS existing customer retention and new customer acquisition."

Abuhoff continued, "We're deeply engaged in board-level activity to improve our operating performance. The special board committee that we formed in December is making an in-depth assessment of our segments. Two of our directors will not stand for reelection, and our nominating committee is charged to see to it that our board as a whole has skills and experience directly pertinent to our Company. And once we work out terms and details, we intend to use restricted stock or the equivalent to pay the base fees of our existing directors other than the audit committee chair, 20% of my salary and 20% of the salary of our chief operating officer."

Abuhoff concluded, "We anticipate our first quarter revenue to be in the range of $13.0 - $14.1 million, consisting of DDS revenue in the range of $9.8 - $10.6 million, IADS revenue in the range of $1.0 - $1.2 million and MIS revenue in the range of $2.2 - $2.3 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, 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 loss to Adjusted EBITDA is attached to this release.
