Innodata Reports Third Quarter 2017 Results

NEW YORK – November 7, 2017 – INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ:INOD) today reported results for the third quarter and the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

  • Total revenue was $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2017, a decline of 2% from $15.3 million in the second quarter of 2017. Total revenue was $16.1 million in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Net loss was $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2017 or $(0.01) per diluted share. Net loss in the third quarter of 2016 was $2.8 million (which included $1.6 million of one-time costs and charges) or $(0.11) per diluted share.
  • For the first nine months of 2017, total revenue was $45.3 million, a decline of 4% from $47.4 million in the first nine months of 2016. Net loss was $3.0 million, or $(0.11) per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2017, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million (which included $3.0 million of one-time costs and charges), or $(0.18) per diluted share, for the same period in 2016.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) was $0.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared to $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $(0.4) million in the third quarter of 2016.
  • Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $12.5 million at September 30, 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, “Consolidated revenue this quarter was at the mid-point of our previously provided guidance. Revenue in our Digital Data Solutions (DDS) segment was $11.6 million in the third quarter of this year, compared to revenue of $10.7 million in the second quarter of the year after excluding $1.1 million of previously deferred revenue that was recognized in the second quarter. This increase primarily reflects higher volumes from an existing customer. We continue to reposition our service capabilities and to reduce our fixed costs. We expect that our 2018 fixed costs will be approximately $2.0 million lower than our annualized fixed costs as of January 2017.

“Revenue in our Innodata Advanced Data Solutions (IADS) segment was flat on a sequential basis in the second and third quarters of this year, although revenue in our Synodex business increased by $100,000. We improved our Synodex production efficiency significantly during the first three quarters of 2017 and anticipate further efficiency improvements and cost alignments.”
Abuhoff continued, “Revenue in our Media Intelligence Solutions (MIS) segment declined 4% sequentially from the second quarter this year to the third quarter.  Revenue of the portion of the business we acquired from PR Newswire in the third quarter of 2016 declined 22% from approximately $1.6 million (net of a one-time acquisition-related adjustment) to $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2017. MIS used approximately $900,000 of cash in the third quarter of 2017. Transition issues should be largely behind us in 2018 and we will target customer renewals in excess of 75%.”

Abuhoff concluded, “We anticipate fourth quarter revenue to be in the range of $14.4 – $15.3 million, consisting of DDS revenue in the range of $11.0 – $11.6 million, IADS revenue in the range of $1.2 – $1.4 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.
