Financial Outlook

For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, the company is reiterating its revenue guidance of $90.0 million to $93.0 million, representing growth of 8% to 12%. The company is also reiterating its adjusted EBITDA guidance of $2.75 million to $3.5 million, which represents an improvement compared to fiscal 2018. The increase in adjusted EBITDA reflects the company’s strategic investments in sales and marketing and product development to accelerate growth, as well as a $400,000 increase due to new Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidance regarding the treatment of capital lease. The company’s financial outlook is based on current expectations. 

Management Commentary

“In the third quarter of 2019, we continued building on the momentum we generated in the first half of the year by growing the topline to drive towards consistent bottom-line profitability,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “From a financial perspective, the quarter was highlighted by a 39% increase in revenues, positive net income, and our ninth consecutive quarter of positive Adjusted EBITDA.

“Operationally, we secured $14.7 million in recent awards during the third quarter, which include contract expansions and renewals with current customers as well as new contract wins. The expansions indicate that our cross-selling and upselling initiatives continue to be effective; the new wins demonstrate our ability to expand our solutions into new markets with new partners; and the renewals prove that we continue to benefit from high-retention rates with our satisfied customers. We also successfully completed an address canvassing project with CDW-G for the 2020 U.S. Census, and we stand well positioned to effectively execute this program when it fully ramps up at the start of the new year.

“Overall, due to our ability to successfully execute on our strategic initiatives and the financial success we have reaped as a result, we believe that we are well positioned to finish the year in a position of strength and to continue accelerating growth and driving towards sustainable profitability over the long-run.”
