Identive Group Announces Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2010 Results

SANTA ANA, Calif. and ISMANING, Germany, March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Identive Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:INVE) (Frankfurt:INV), a provider of products, services and solutions for the security, identification and RFID industries, today announced results for the fiscal fourth quarter (Q4) and full year 2010, ended December 31, 2010.

Ayman S. Ashour, chairman and chief executive officer, commented, "2010 was a year of transformation for Identive. We completed the combination with Bluehill ID and the acquisitions of RockWest and Smartag and put in place a management team with significant experience in the secure identification and identity management market. We more than doubled sales and achieved significant wins for security-related projects with the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Justice in the U.S., the German electronic ID program, the Critical National Infrastructure Authority in Abu Dhabi and China Unicom. And we exceeded our goal of cutting out $4.5 million in overheads. In our first year as Identive Group, we have established the Company as an innovative leader in secure identification technologies, with a demonstrated focus on growth and profitability."

Identive's Q4 and fiscal year 2010 results include the operating results of acquired companies since the dates of their respective acquisitions. These include Hirsch Electronics Corporation, acquired April 30, 2009; Bluehill ID AG, acquired January 4, 2010; Multicard U.S., acquired April 14, 2010; and Smartag, acquired November 19, 2010. All results are reported in U.S. GAAP, except as noted. A discussion of non-GAAP measures and reconciliation to the applicable GAAP measures is included below.

Full Year 2010 Results

Revenue for the full year 2010 was $84.8 million, up 105% from $41.3 million in 2009 and reflecting organic growth as well as growth from strategic acquisitions. In contrast, total base operating expenses in 2010, including $16.2 million of additional costs from acquired businesses, grew only 44% from 2009 levels as a result of cost reduction measures implemented at the beginning of 2010 .

Net loss decreased to $(9.5) million, or $(0.22) per share in 2010, compared with net loss of $(14.2) million, or $(0.64) per share in 2009. On a non-GAAP basis, adjusted EBITDA (EBITDA before equity-based compensation, acquisition, transition and integration costs) was $1.1 million in 2010, compared with negative adjusted EBITDA of ($7.5) million in 2009.
