AUSTIN, Texas, May 16, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK) (the "Company" or "CynergisTek"), a leader in cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter Summary of Financial Results for Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021:

  • Revenue increases 12% to $4.7 million compared to $4.2 million.

  • Gross margin improves to 40% compared to 38%, after adjusting Q1 2021 for the employee retention credits.

  • Net loss was unchanged at $0.9 million.

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was unchanged at $0.6 million.

First Quarter 2022 Operational Highlights

  • 22% increase in sequential revenue growth since Q3 2021 through Q1 2022.

  • 32% increase in professional services and consulting revenue from Q1 2022 compared to Q1 2021.

  • Strong renewal activity in Q1 2022.

  • 15 new customers added year to date.

"We continue to execute on our plan to drive growth and margin improvement in our business," said Mac McMillan, President and CEO of CynergisTek. "We saw our second quarter of sequential growth since Q3 2021 driven by our sales team’s efforts with 15 new clients added year to date and strong renewals in the quarter. We are expecting that our technology enabled managed services and strategic partnerships will continue to drive us forward and differentiate us from our competition."

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2022, compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2021

Revenue increased $0.5 million, or 12%, to $4.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to the same period in 2021. Managed Services revenue decreased slightly by $0.1 million. Consulting and professional services increased $0.6 million due to customers increasing spend as they start to get back to normal buying patterns after a period of reduced spending in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Gross margin was up 2% to 40% of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2022. After adjusting for the prior year benefit from the employee retention tax credit, gross margin was 38% for the same period in 2021. Margins improved as a result of higher revenue allowing us to better leverage our operational overhead support.

SG&A expenses decreased $0.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, to $2.7 million, as compared to the same period in 2021. The decrease is due to $0.1 million less in professional fees due to 2021 being higher and lower stock-based compensation.

GAAP net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022, was $0.9 million, or $(0.07) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or $(0.08) per basic and diluted share, for the same period of 2021.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss was $0.6 million, or $(0.05) per basic and diluted share, for both the three months ended March 31, 2022 and March 31, 2021. The reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP information can be found in the table at the end of this release, which provides the details of CynergisTek’s non-GAAP disclosures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP information.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

CynergisTek, Inc. ("CynergisTek" or the "Company") prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA ("Adjusted EBITDA"), which differs from the commonly-used "EBITDA." In addition to adjusting net income (loss) to exclude income taxes, interest, depreciation, and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes share-based compensation, impairment charges, fair value adjustments, severance, and other cash and non-cash charges and gains.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance as defined in accordance with GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company’s operating performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers, and other stakeholders an additional view of the Company’s operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company’s financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to loss-from-continuing-operations or net-cash-used-in-operating-activities as measures of operating results or liquidity. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and the measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company’s performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are (i) it does not reflect the Company’s cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments, (ii) it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company’s working capital needs, (iii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company’s debt, (iv) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements, (v) it does not adjust for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in the Company’s statements of cash flows, (vi) it does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of its ongoing operations, and (vii) other companies in the same industry may calculate this measure differently than the Company does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. These potential differences may be caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense). Management also presents Adjusted EBITDA because (i) management believes this measure is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the same industry, (ii) management believes investors will find this measure useful in assessing the Company’s ability to service or incur indebtedness, and (iii) management uses Adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark to evaluate the Company’s operating performance or compare the Company’s performance to that of its competitors.
