Financial Outlook

The company also expects adjusted EBITDA of $0.8 million to $0.9 million. The company’s financial outlook is based on current expectations.

Management Commentary

“2019 concluded with a strong performance in the fourth quarter in large part due to the successful execution of our sales strategy and our ability to effectively scale along with the growing needs of our customers while maintaining an efficient and effectively operated organization,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “From a financial perspective, the quarter was highlighted by a 13% increase in revenues to $28.1 million and positive adjusted EBITDA of $1.0 million, which marks our tenth consecutive quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA. Operationally, we continued to ramp up our work on the U.S. Census project, strengthened our relationships with our system integrator partners, and received an intent to award notice for a sole source interim contract from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

“For the full year, we either met or exceeded our financial expectations as we recognized record revenues of $101.7 million, while driving record adjusted EBITDA of $3.6 million, and GAAP net income profitability. These results, coupled with the fact that we generated $5.9 million in cash from operations, indicate that we continue to successfully achieve our primary goal of simultaneously improving the top and bottom lines as we help large enterprises navigate the complexities of the mobile landscape. 

“Overall, 2019 was another successful year for WidePoint that gave us solid momentum going into 2020, in large part, due to the census and NASA NEST projects, which are now running at full speed. We’re fortunate to have a stable and profitable business, as well as a resilient customer base that should be able to weather the current dynamic market conditions relatively well. While no industry is immune to the effects of COVID-19, we serve predominantly large federal and commercial enterprises, for whom our solutions are a critical component to manage their mobile workforces. These characteristics coupled with our ongoing projects give us good visibility in the near-term and confidence in our ability to drive profitable growth over the long term.”
