MELBOURNE, Florida - April 2, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD), a provider of payment, credential management, and authentication platform services, announces its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2017.
2017 Year Highlights:
*Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization adjusted to exclude non-cash equity compensation, and other special non-recurring charges. Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used by management and investors as an indicator of operating performance and liquidity. Adjusted EBITDA is not considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP and it should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss), or other financial statement data presented in accordance with GAAP in our consolidated financial statements.
Gino Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of NXT-ID said, "Our annual results for 2017 show strong continued growth following the significant progress we reported in 2016. Revenue in 2017 was more than 3 times the level of 2016."
"LogicMark continues to perform strongly. It has posted record revenues annually since we acquired the company in mid-2016. Our deliveries of the flye card to WorldVentures slowed significantly in the second half of 2017, as they had sufficient inventory on hand. We do not expect significant deliveries to them until the second half of 2018. We are at a stage of development where the performance of a single customer can cause choppiness in our revenues, but we expect that to decrease as we onboard more customers in 2018. For the first time in 2017 we recorded positive EBITDA of almost $2 million after adjusting for non-cash charges."
"As pleased as I am with the progress we made in 2017, I am even more excited about the coming year as our technology platforms continue to be commercialized. Our new addition, Fit Pay, now has two smartwatches in market made by Garmin featuring our NFC payment technology, with several more to come in 2018. As a credential management and authentication company, we are embracing blockchain technology as part of our product offerings and looking at applications in payments as well as healthcare. Our first product offering 'Flip' will be available in the first half of 2018.
"I expect 2018 to build on the growth of 2017 as our company continues to mature and bring cutting edge technologies to market."
In conjunction with the release, the Company has scheduled a conference call, which will be broadcast over the Internet, on Monday, April 2, 2018 at 9:00 AM EDT. Following management's discussion, there will be a Q&A session with several Wall Street analysts.
