New Leadership, New Identity, New Company, New Partners
DENVER, Aug. 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — authID.AI (www.authid.ai) [OTCQB:AUID] today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021. The Company, previously known as Ipsidy, made strategic changes in its branding, leadership and board of directors, and continued to expand its channel partner network.
The authID platform eliminates the need for passwords by delivering secure biometric identity proofing and authentication solutions to a broad array of verticals including finance, healthcare, sharing economy, online gaming and other large data-sensitive industries. The strengthened firm is poised to capture greater share of the growing market for password alternatives and cyber threat solutions.
Financial Results for the Three Months and Six Months Ended June 30, 2021
- Total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2021 increased to $0.6 million from $0.3 million for the same period ended June 30, 2020. Total revenue for the six months in 2021 increased to $1.2 million from $1.1 million for the same period in 2020.
- Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2021 decreased by 12% to $3.1 million as compared to $3.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. Net loss for the six-month period in 2021 decreased by 24% to $5.5 million from $7.3 million for the same period in 2020.
- Basic and diluted net loss per share for the three months ended June 30, 2021 improved by 25% to $0.15 cents from $0.20 cents for the three months ended June 30, 2020. Basic and diluted net loss per share for the six months ended June 30, 2021 improved by 33% to $0.28 cents from $0.42 cents for the same period ended June 30, 2020.
- Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three-month periods ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020 was unchanged at $1.4 million. Adjusted EBITDA loss for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021 was $2.6 million as compared to $2.7 million for the same period in 2020.
- Effective June 14, 2021, the Company completed a 1-for-30 reverse stock split of common stock in order to make it easier for investors to trade in our stock and as a necessary step before the Company’s common stock can be admitted to listing on a national exchange.
- During the six months ended June 30, 2021, the Company received voluntary conversion notices to exchange approximately $6.2 million of convertible notes and a majority of the accrued interest into approximately 1.2 million (post-split) shares of common stock. This conversion was the primary reason for the reduction in Total liabilities outstanding from $9.3 million as of December 31, 2020 to $3.7 million as of June 30, 2021.Refer to Table 1 for reconciliation of net income to Adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure).
The Company continued to execute upon its strategy of expanding the authID Channel Partner Network. Various agreements were executed with integration efforts underway or nearing completion with fintech companies, technology solutions providers, and payment processors who will deploy authID’s trusted identity verification and seamless FIDO2 passwordless login services with their customer portfolios in order to mitigate identity fraud, account takeover and phishing. The highlights for the six-month period ending June 30, 2021 include:
- Rebranded as authID.ai with a new ticker symbol of AUID to best capture our vision for the future of biometric authentication and our mission to replace passwords.
- Appointed a new management team with deep industry experience and success spearheading significant growth at market-leading technology companies. Tom Thimot joined authID as Chief Executive Officer and Board Director, and Tripp Smith joined as President and Chief Technology Officer in order to propel the Company’s next phase of growth.
- Completed integration to Temenos core banking platform making the full complement of authID’s identity verification and authentication solutions easily available to the Temenos global portfolio. The services will be launched in the third quarter with a North American bank committed to providing a secure frictionless onboarding and passwordless banking experience for their international clientele.
- Selected by CU NextGen, a leading provider of next generation technology solutions and platforms to US-based credit unions. CU NextGen is leveraging authID’s biometric identity authentication solution to transform the way its credit union clients recognize their members—both digitally and in person.

- Expanded our partner network in the Americas, signing an extension to our agreement with Inetum (a division of the global IT services company formerly known as Gfi), covering the North and Central American regions. The Agreement also provides access to Mexico’s national identity registry, through Inetum, which when integrated to authID will enhance our identity verification services.
- Signed an agreement with BPSmart, an innovative technology provider servicing North America and Latin America, to integrate the authID identity services into their chat-based AI-Powered, Digital Assistant Platform.
- Added through a US channel partner various sharing-economy and ecommerce providers, including auto-rentals and property management companies, who are leveraging our biometric identity proofing services to help reduce identity fraud in digital customer onboarding.
“In the last month, we began the process of launching our exciting new authID brand with a vision to help every organization ‘Recognise their Customers” without friction or loss of privacy,” said Tom Thimot, CEO of authID.ai. “To realize our mission to eliminate passwords and become the preferred platform for biometric authentication, our new leadership team will drive success by leveraging channel partnerships as a force multiplier. The authID team will also launch our campaign to service the US market with new self-service capabilities aimed at quickly onboarding thousands of small and medium-sized businesses, who can benefit from our low-friction identity proofing and authentication services. We are confident that our product and go to market strategies will increase the demand for authID’s software as the market realizes that matching a customer biometric to access an account is more secure with less friction than traditional passwords and one-time passwords via SMS.”

Non-GAAP Financial Information.
The Company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures in this statement. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, when viewed with our results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information about our period-over-period results. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides additional information with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities and is also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of comparable companies. We also rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a primary measure to review and assess the operating performance of our company and our management team in connection with our executive compensation. These non-GAAP key business indicators, which include Adjusted EBITDA, should not be considered replacements for and should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) provision for income taxes, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) stock-based compensation expense (stock options and restricted stock) and (6) certain other items management believes affect the comparability of operating results. Please see Table 1 below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
