Supporting Healthcare with Essential Cybersecurity and Privacy Services
Austin, Texas – (August 13, 2020) – CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK), a leader in cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance, today announced financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020.
Recent Operational Focus due to COVID-19 Includes:
- Won two large Fortune 1,000 and Global 500 contract renewals.
- Managed Services revenue levels consistent with prior year.
- Achieved additional permanent annualized expense reductions of over $3.3 million.
- New partnership with Awake Security to offer AI-powered Compromise Assessments, identifying issues with hastily deployed telemedicine, remote work and surge facilities.
“Our revenue and operating results were negatively impacted for the current quarter as our hospital customers appropriately diverted their attention and resources to crisis management in the face of COVID-19,” said Caleb Barlow, President and CEO of CynergisTek. “We took decisive actions to reduce our operating expenses and to preserve liquidity, and are pleased that our recurring managed services revenues continue to hold up well through the pandemic. We are actively engaging with our customers and expanding our capabilities to help address healthcare’s changing cybersecurity needs surrounding telemedicine and remote work.”
For the Three Months Ended June 30, 2020, Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2019
Revenue decreased $0.5 million to $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, as compared to the same period in 2019. Managed Services revenue increased slightly to $2.9 million. Consulting and professional services revenue decreased $1.3 million due to lower revenue from two customers who had large non-recurring remediation contracts that we completed in the first half of last year. This was offset by $0.8 million in new consulting and professional services revenues from the acquisition of Backbone, which was also impacted by COVID-19.
Gross margin was 27% of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2020, and 41% for the same period in 2019. This decrease was a result of continued lower revenue in legacy CynergisTek consulting and professional services revenue along with lower margins this quarter from Backbone due in part to COVID-19, additional costs from obtaining talented cyber security employees and costs associated with new managed services. We are continuing to take actions to reduce expenses to better position the Company for the current environment.
Sales and marketing expenses increased $0.4 million to $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020 due to an increase in headcount to grow revenue and additional systems cost to support automation. General and administrative expenses increased $0.3 million to $1.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020. The increase is due to a one-time $0.4 million charge in severance related costs to improve operating margins, $0.1 million in additional stock-based compensation, $0.2 million in costs for Backbone, offset by approximately $0.4 million in spend reductions associated with the reductions in force we started in December of 2019.
GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2020 was $2.5 million, or $0.23 per basic and diluted share compared to a net loss of $0.9 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share for the same period of 2019.
Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss from continuing operations, after adding back stock-based compensation and restructuring costs, was $1.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2020, compared to a loss of $0.4 million after adding back stock-based compensation for the same period in 2019.
The reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP information can be found in the table at the end of this release and provides the detail of the Company’s non-GAAP disclosures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP information.
