The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially depending on market conditions and the factors set forth under the “Safe Harbor Statement” below.
For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019, the company is reiterating its revenues guidance of $90.0 million to $93.0 million, representing growth of 8% to 12%. The company is also raising its adjusted EBITDA guidance to $2.75 million to $3.5 million, which represents an improvement compared to fiscal 2018. The increase 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 FASB guidance regarding the treatment of capital lease. The company’s financial outlook is based on current expectations.
“The first quarter was a strong start to what we anticipate will be a solid year for WidePoint as we delivered continued solid financial results, expanded on new and current customer relationships, and improved our industry leading suite of credentials,” said WidePoint’s CEO, Jin Kang. “Our financial performance in the first quarter was highlighted by our first quarter of GAAP profitability in nearly six years, a 20% increase in gross profit and positive adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.0 million, all of which demonstrate improved leverage in our financial model.
“Operationally, the recent contracts we secured in the first quarter with CBP, CNA, and others, highlight that our internal sales team, our strategic partnerships with systems integrators, as well as our cross-selling and up-selling initiatives continue to be an effective means of landing new business. We also made substantial progress this quarter in bolstering our credentials by successfully implementing ITMSTM Instance with GovCloud, which is a first for our industry and a crucial step towards achieving a FedRAMP certification.
“We remain optimistic about the remainder of 2019 and beyond, and we look forward to continuing with our strategy to more aggressively grow the topline while improving our margins, improving profitability and returning greater value to our supportive shareholders.”
