DALLAS, TX / ACCESSWIRE / August 9, 2019 / nDivision Inc. (OTCQB:NDVN), the experts in increasing IT's value and reducing IT costs up to 50% by replacing human labor with "digital labor," today announced its financial and business results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019.
- Grew Revenue 29% over prior year
- Generated Cash from Operating Activities of $4,293
- Achieved Adjusted EBITDA* of ($36,887)
- Adjusted Run Rate EBITDA* decreased by ($55,572)
- Won additional Managed Services Contract by Fortune 500 customer valued at $720,000 annually
- Added to the Board, Keith Morrow, Technology Executive and CIO Hall of Fame member
- Grew business development pipelines to highest level since becoming a public company
'Year over year, nDivision grew its customer base and financial metrics because the technology world - particularly enterprise IT departments - are at a transition point. Leading CIOs are identifying and deploying game-changing technologies to advance the business objectives of their enterprises. Technology departments failing to make the transition can find their companies losing market share to more technology proficient competitors," said Alan Hixon, CEO of nDivision, Inc. "nDivision offerings help them reallocate their most valuable resources - particularly capital and critical expertise - from their expensive and time-consuming 'keeping-the-lights-on' (KTLO) activities to strategic initiatives with demonstrable ROIs. Our digital engineers keep their systems up and running, cut costs by as much as 50%, and better enable them to deploy technologies that can disrupt their competition - if not their entire industry.
"The momentum that propelled our growth during 2018 continued throughout the first half of 2019, and in the second quarter, resulted in nDivision being awarded an additional $720,000 per year contract by an existing Fortune 500 client. Additionally, our organic business development pipeline of qualified Managed Services prospects expanded during the period by the largest single-quarter jump we have experienced since our founding," continued Hixon. "Business development efforts with one of our two Fortune 50 Global Technology Partners also advanced significantly during the quarter, and we are now being engaged even more strategically in one of their 10 national regions/verticals to introduce nDivision offerings to their enterprise customers. This alliance slashes weeks or months off the typical nDivision Managed Services sales process and should dramatically improve our close rate with these prospective customers."

The company uses the above-mentioned non-GAAP financial measure, Adjusted Run Rate EBITDA, as its primary indicator of financial performance and intrinsic financial health. Adjusted Run Rate EBITDA is calculated using contracted recurring revenues less Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) and known customer attrition. The metric excludes professional services, other income, and sales and marketing costs, other than long-term customer acquisition referral fees. The metric does not include sales forecasts or anticipated new business wins. The reconciliations of non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Run Rate EBITDA to GAAP net income (net loss) are provided in schedules that are a part of this press release in the section titled Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.
Financial Highlights and Outlook
Growth of nDivision's revenue during the second quarter of 2019 compared to the same period in 2018 was primarily due to revenue from new customer contracts won by the company's direct sales team, new customers acquired through its relationships with the company's Global Technology Provider partners, and revenue from a portfolio of 58 Managed Services Contracts acquired by the company in January 2018, which began contributing revenue during the 2018 second quarter.
Year-over-year Contracted Recurring Revenue growth also includes new customer wins through the company's strategic relationships with two Fortune 50 Global Technology Providers and revenue from the acquisition of 58 Managed Services Contracts completed during the first quarter of the prior year.
The company expects that the Fortune 500 customer contracts will begin billing at their agreed upon levels, during the fourth quarter of 2019, at which time it is expected that the company will be able to cover all monthly operating costs solely with recurring revenue, and become cash flow positive.
Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Run Rate EBITDA were lower sequentially due to receipt during the 2019 first quarter of a substantial onboarding charge related to the Managed Services Contract for the Fortune 500 customer. This charge was not realized again in the second quarter of 2019.
The company's actual results for the second quarter did not achieve the benchmark projected in the first quarter 2019 quarterly financial announcement due to delays in fully transferring the systems of the company's Fortune 500 customer onto the nDivision's platform. It was anticipated that the balance of the onboarding fees and a portion of the monthly recurring revenue for the associated Managed Services Contract would be realized during the second quarter of 2019. It is now anticipated that the balance of the onboarding fees will be realized during the 2019 third and the fourth quarters. nDivision also expects to receive a portion of the contracted monthly Managed Services revenue during the fourth quarter and that the contract will begin billing fully at contracted levels during the fourth quarter of 2019.
The business development teams continued to grow the company's two primary sales channels during the quarter.
- nDivision Direct Sales - During the quarter, nDivision's business development team grew its qualified prospect pipeline by approximately 750%. The additional potential enterprise customers typically include companies with more than 500 employees. The company expects to recruit additional, experienced business development team members to help capitalize on these growth opportunities.
- Global Technology Provider Channel - During the second quarter, nDivision expanded its collaborative relationship with one of its Fortune 50 Global Technology Provider partners. Under the new agreement, nDivision has agreed to market its Managed Services to the more than 300 existing, large enterprise customers (typically with more than $1 billion in annual revenue) in one of the organization's 10 national regions/verticals. In the first half of 2019, this resulted in nDivision being engaged in more than 25 enterprise accounts. The lead time from initial engagement to contract signing is typically between 12 and 18 months.
Addition of Keith Morrow to Board of Directors
nDivision added to the Board of Directors Keith Morrow who is the EVP, Technology Advisor for Epsilon, a global marketing innovator acquired by Publicis Groupe for $4.4 billion during the first half of 2019.
