Intellinetics, Inc. is a Columbus, Ohio-based ECM software company. Its flagship IntelliCloud™ platform is ideal for embedded work teams in businesses of any size stuck in document-centric processes that are not optimized.
IntelliCloud offers a painless way to merge those documents into digital workflows, increasing service levels, compliance and customer satisfaction while decreasing costs and risk. Intellinetics collaborated with Intel® to create its IntelliCloud Channel Program that enables resellers to easily embed IntelliCloud into to the copiers, productivity software and services they already provide. IntelliCloud provides dealers a “deploy once, use many” innovation where one IntelliCloud customer sale/activation creates endless possibilities to add other software applications that deliver more value and increase revenue.

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017 were $710,394, as compared with $603,391 for the same period in 2016, an increase of $107,003, or 18%. Sales of Software as a Service (SaaS) growth was 20%, with new customers partially offset by a price reduction for a key channel partner. Overall, gross margins were 71% for each of the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016.
Net loss was $(448,709) and $(535,765) for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, or $(0.03) and $(0.03) per share, respectively, representing a decrease of $87,056, or 16%. Total decrease in net loss was attributable to the increase in gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2017. Adjusted EBITDA loss for the three months was $(173,566), compared with a loss of $(112,875) for last year, a 54% increase.
Matthew L. Chretien, President and CEO of Intellinetics, stated, “In Q1 we took another step forward in revenue growth while taking major steps to advance relationships with several strategic partners across multiple sales channels. We expect that these relationships will soon reflect the successful execution of our business plan as these new channels generate revenue beginning in Q2 and beyond.”
Q1 Key Metrics
- Software as a Service Revenue increased 20%
- Total Revenue increased 18%
- Slight Net Loss improvement and Adjusted EBITDA erosion – a result of sales and marketing investments to support and execute our channel expansion
First Quarter Highlights
- In January, our convertible debt financing round of $1.25M to support our expected rapid growth was fully subscribed.
- Continued to grow total revenues quarter-over-quarter sequentially from Q1 2016.
- Accelerated our relationship with technology-based partner Field2Base, announced earlier this month, and integrated our technology with their mobile solution. The partnership is expected to begin generating revenue in Q2 2017.
- We focused on growing new revenue streams through additional technology-based partners that have leading cloud-based platforms with large and growing installation bases.
- This new OEM / Embedded channel segment embeds the sale of IntelliCloud into an existing product vs. as a separate / standalone process. In some cases, this created new offerings that we are also selling through our imaging channel.
- Further developed our strategic partnerships with document solutions distribution, setting the stage for revenue generation beginning in Q2.

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
Intellinetics uses non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP).
A non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s financial performance that excludes or includes amounts so as to be different from the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP in the statement of income, balance sheet or statement of cash flows of a company. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of our liquidity. Intellinetics urges investors to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable GAAP Net Loss, which is included in this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Intellinetics’ financial performance.
We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful performance measure and is used by us to facilitate a comparison of our operating performance on a consistent basis from period-to-period and to provide for a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting our business than measures under GAAP can provide alone. We define “Adjusted EBITDA” as earnings before interest expense, any income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, and other non-cash expenses such as share-based compensation, note conversion warrant expense and other financing related transaction costs.
