Strong Near-Term Earnings Improvements Anticipated

NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 10, 2022 / INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ:INOD) today reported results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022.

  • Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 was $18.4 million, up 6% year-over-year.

  • Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2022 was $3.3 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, in the same period last year.

  • Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $59.6 million, up 18% year-over-year.

  • Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was $10.0 million, or $0.37 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, in the same period last year.

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2022, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $0.7 million in the same period last year.**

  • Adjusted EBITDA loss was $3.5 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2022, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $2.7 million in the same period last year.**

  • Cash and cash equivalents were $10.7 million at September 30, 2022 and $18.9 million at December 31, 2021.

** Adjusted EBITDA is defined below.

Amounts in this press release have been rounded. All percentages have been calculated using unrounded amounts.

Jack Abuhoff, CEO, said, "Our Q3 revenue was $18.4 million, exceeding the guidance we provided in our last earnings announcement. We expect that Q4 revenue will show sequential improvement from Q3. Due to our rigorous focus on costs, we expect to be Adjusted EBITDA positive in Q4, and our business plan calls for us to achieve greater than $10 million in Adjusted EBITDA next year.

"Many of the large tech companies have launched major layoffs and cost-cutting measures. Our large social media customer recently significantly reduced its workforce, and as a consequence, we are seeing interruptions in the work we do for them. We believe our work is critical to their ongoing operational goals and anticipate that our work will likely pick up again as responsibilities of the laid-off workers are assigned to other employees. That said, our business plan conservatively is not dependent on this occurring."

Abuhoff continued, "Despite these relatively significant disruptions, we managed to show 6% year-over-year growth, which, while not reflective of our ambitions, supports our belief that our business growth engines remain intact. Although the general economic outlook has resulted in longer sales cycles and more levels of customer-side sign-off, we believe that our products and services are critical to helping our clients stay competitive and achieve their cost and efficiency goals and that increased spending on such initiatives is a secular trend.

"Outside of these transitory issues, we believe our business continues to build momentum. We now have 10 large customers for our AI/ML lifecycle services which we believe will increase their spend with us in 2023, some significantly, based on our current line-of-sight. Many of these companies have revenues in multiple billions of dollars. In the third quarter, we brought on four of these customers. The use cases we're landing include facial recognition, retail anomaly detection, automation, chatbots, security monitoring, and voice-to-text. Indeed, we're hoping to be in a position to announce several additional important wins and expansions with these and other customers by year-end.

"Our Synodex business - which enjoys a net retention over 150% - is also rapidly onboarding new customers. Just yesterday, we announced two new customer wins for our Synodex platform that we believe will together yield approximately $1.1 million of annualized revenue. We also expanded the value of a Synodex engagement from an estimated $1.8 to $2.3 million of anticipated annual recurring revenue as we began ramping up the engagement this month.

"On the Agility front, we've seen a 107% year-over-year increase in our year-to-date bookings, and we expect this trend to continue through the remainder of the year as a result of a strong pipeline. We've also increased our midmarket average selling price (ASP) from a year ago by 49% with large increases in the number of deals significantly exceeding the average. And now that we've launched our new social media listening product, which we announced in September, we're seeing that midmarket deals incorporating this new product are increasing ASP by 200%. To date, we have 20 customers using our new social listening product, and we have 65 prospective customers in our pipeline. Another significant accomplishment is that this year we've continued to expand a new Agility customer that is now our largest-ever Agility customer. We now value them at $628,000 of annual recurring subscription revenue. Moreover, we are expecting this annual recurring revenue value to increase further based on additional expansions. For this customer, we developed a new critical awareness capability that we believe could have broad application in the market."

Abuhoff concluded, "Consequently, we believe that the secular growth trends underlying our business remain robust. Over the past year, we believe that we have proven that we are well-positioned to serve the growing AI market - helping companies that are already deep into AI with large-scale data collection and annotation; helping companies that are now getting into AI with model development and deployment; and building AI-enabled applications and platforms that are blueprints for how to strike the right balance between humans and machines. We believe that in the world ahead of us AI will co-pilot even the most domain-specific tasks."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial information prepared in conformity with U.S. GAAP ("GAAP"), we provide certain non-GAAP financial information. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results. In some respects, management believes non-GAAP financial measures are more indicative of our ongoing core operating performance than their GAAP equivalents by making adjustments that management believes are reflective of the ongoing performance of the business.

We believe that the presentation of this non-GAAP financial information provides investors with greater transparency by providing investors a more complete understanding of our financial performance, competitive position, and prospects for the future, particularly by providing the same information that management and our Board of Directors uses to evaluate our performance and manage the business. However, the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of our business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures that we present may differ from similar non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Innodata Inc. and its subsidiaries in accordance with U.S. GAAP before interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization of intangible assets (which derives EBITDA), plus additional adjustments for loss on impairment of intangible assets and goodwill, stock-based compensation, income (loss) attributable to non-controlling interests and other one-time costs. We use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate core results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believe that these measures are important components of our internal performance measurement process.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most directly comparable GAAP measure is included in the tables that accompany this release.
