Management Commentary

“The third quarter marked a period of productivity, as we successfully completed the acquisition of ITA, made progress across our sales and marketing initiatives, engaged in new strategic customer wins, upgraded our already robust portfolio of solutions, and continued to successfully execute our strategy for profitable growth,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “Although we were faced with macro-economic headwinds, our team was able to weather the storm and focus on controlling the factors within our grasp, by remaining prudent with our expenditures and concentrating on tackling high ROI opportunities. Additionally, we are working to immediately reap the benefits of ITA’s capabilities and resources from the get-go. Our team is ramping up joint synergy opportunities by upselling and cross-selling our portfolio of solutions to their base of customers which have already resulted in executed deals. As we near the end of the calendar year, I am confident in our team’s ability to capitalize on all the near-term opportunities across the board, as we look to continue executing our strategy for profitable growth through organic and inorganic means.”

Financial Outlook

The company has updated guidance for the full year 2021. Excluding revenue from ITA, the company expects revenues to be in a range from $80 million to $84 million and adjusted EBITDA to be in a range from $3.1 million to $3.3 million. Additionally, ITA forecasts its fourth quarter 2021 revenues to be approximately $2 million with adjusted EBITDA of $100,000. The company’s financial outlook is based on current expectations and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under the “Safe Harbor Statement” below.

Increase to Reinstated Share Repurchase Program

As previously announced, the Company has reinstated its prior share repurchase program which was suspended on March 9, 2020 as a precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Following such reinstatement, the Board of Directors increased the size of the repurchase program to $5.0 million, increasing the amount currently available for repurchases to $4.6 million.  Under the share repurchase program, repurchases of the issued and outstanding shares may be made from time-to-time in open market and privately negotiated transactions. WidePoint currently has 9.1 million shares outstanding.  

Any share repurchases will be made in compliance with the SEC’s Rule 10b-18, subject to market conditions, available liquidity, cash flow, applicable legal requirements, and other factors. This program does not obligate WidePoint to acquire any particular amount of common stock and the program may be suspended or discontinued at any time. WidePoint intends to finance the purchases with existing cash balances.

CFO Transition

Kellie Kim, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, notified the Company on November 11, 2021, of her plans to retire to devote more time to her family and other personal interests. Ms. Kim will remain in her current role until the completion of 10-K filing in 2022 and remain fully engaged as CFO and actively participate in the process to evaluate a full slate of candidates. She will continue to assist the Company as a consultant following her departure as CFO.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

WidePoint uses a variety of operational and financial metrics, including non-GAAP financial measures such as EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA, to enable it to analyze its performance and financial condition. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of GAAP Net income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is provided below:

[Click to Expand]

WidePoint uses adjusted EBITDA as supplemental non-GAAP measure of performance. WidePoint defines EBITDA as net income excluding (i) interest expense, (ii) provision for or benefit from income taxes and (iii) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain amounts included in EBITDA. WidePoint is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA in reliance on the “unreasonable efforts” exception for forward-looking non-GAAP measures set forth in SEC rules because certain financial information, the probable significance of which cannot be determined, is not available and cannot be reasonably estimated without unreasonable effort and expense. In this regard, WidePoint does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) to GAAP net income, due to the inherent difficulty in forecasting and quantifying certain amounts that are necessary for such reconciliation. Because certain deductions for non-GAAP exclusions used to calculate projected net income may vary significantly based on actual events, WidePoint is not able to forecast on a GAAP basis with reasonable certainty all deductions needed in order to provide a GAAP calculation of projected net income at this time. The amounts of these deductions may be material and, therefore, could result in projected GAAP net income being materially less than is indicated by estimated adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP).
