“Our third quarter’s financial results were satisfyingly strong. We grew our top line by 30% year over year and we were operationally profitable on an Adjusted EBITDA basis,” stated Steve L. Komar, WidePoint’s chief executive officer. “We remain confident that we will continue to make progress with our financial model, and we are particularly excited by the opportunities we see for our identity management solutions and our telecom lifecycle management solutions in both the Federal and Commercial market spaces. We continue to be optimistically excited about the direction that our partnership with AT&T is leading us, especially given their focused thrust into the Internet of Things (IoT). Coupling this opportunity with the continued positive progress we are making with the United States Coast Guard (USCG), leads us to believe that 2017 should continue to demonstrate even more positive financial improvements, and leveraging and scaling within our business model.”
James McCubbin, WidePoint’s chief financial officer, added, “The third quarter showed the leverage in our business model. We saw improvements in revenues, gross profits, and bottom line performance. Our third quarter performance put us on track to meet many of our goals that we set out at the beginning of the year, while we still had to deal with timing challenges in awards, regulatory delays, as well as the negative financial impact that we realized from the United Kingdom’s vote to exit the European Union. Given these challenges we were pleased with our ability to achieve the positive results in the third quarter of 2016. We believe that 2017 will be an exciting year for all of our stakeholders given the new awards we are still expecting from the USCG and our new Identity Management solutions.”
