Cash and cash equivalents were $5.5 million at March 31, 2013 compared with $7.4 million at December 31, 2012. Net decrease in cash was $1.9 million reflecting a small amount of cash provided by operations, $1.1 million used for capital expenditures and $1.0 million used for payment of financial liabilities. In anticipation of a stronger Q2, inventory built of $1.8 million was a significant part of the cash used in operations.
David Wear, chief financial officer of Identive stated, "Our recent addition of an equity line brings growth capital into the Company and allows us to control the timing and amount of new stock we issue while meeting our goal of minimizing dilution for our shareholders. The equity line enables us to optimize our production capacity and provides additional working capital to address growing demand for our ID Products. Furthermore this new capital will allow us to maintain necessary levels of time-sensitive investment in our products and solutions in emergent areas such as NFC and Identity as a Service, where market demand is building."
Outlook for Q2 2013
Based on its current expectations and the continued uncertainty associated with the U.S. Government business, management expects revenues of $22.0 million to $26.0 million for the second quarter of 2013, and further expects adjusted EBITDA of $(0.5) million to $0.5 million. For full year 2013, management expects revenues of $105.0 million to $110.0 million and adjusted EBITDA of $2.0 million to $6.0 million.Conference Call and Webcast Information Identive Group will host a conference call and webcast today at 9:00 AM Eastern Time, which can be accessed by dialing 888.771.4371 (toll free within the U.S.) or +1 847.585.4405 (for international callers) and using pass code 34764421.
