CynergisTek Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results


CynergisTek, Inc. (NYSE AMERICAN: CTEK) (the "Company" or "CynergisTek"), a leader in cybersecurity, privacy, and compliance, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Q3 2021 Operational Highlights

"It has been a busy few months since my return with the roll out of our Resilience Partner Program that added six new multiyear clients, including two outside of the healthcare industry. Our consulting service has seen recent growth in our technical testing, certification, and privacy services with 200% growth in the number of contracts year-over-year and our best quarter this year in adding new customers with a total of 17," said Mac McMillan, President and CEO of CynergisTek.

"The need for our core products and services is bigger now than it has ever been. The Healthcare Task Force has said that healthcare cybersecurity is in critical condition. Nearly 90% of hospitals are reporting major breaches and the average cost of a breach has risen to over $9 million. On top of that, cyber insurers are making it harder to get covered, making building resilience in these organizations more important than ever."

For the Three Months Ended September 30, 2021, as Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2020

Revenue was $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $4.5 million for the same period in 2020. Managed Services revenue decreased for the three months ended September 30, 2021, by $0.5 million to $2.2 million, due to the impact of the pandemic and some short-term delays in beginning work at a couple recently signed contracts. Consulting and professional services revenue was $1.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, as compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2020, due to underperformance in our Backbone business unit, which we expect to recover in Q4 2021 and in to 2022.

Gross margin was 48% of revenue due in part to the positive impact of the Employee Retention Tax Credit. Excluding the Employee Retention Tax Credit, gross margin was 35% for the three months ended September 30, 2021, comparable to the same period in 2020.

SG&A expenses increased for the three months ended September 30, 2021, by $0.9 million to $3.7 million, as compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to severance costs associated with the departure of our former CEO.

GAAP net income for the three months ended September 30, 2021, was $1.2 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, for the same period of 2020. This includes income of $2.9 million from the forgiveness of the full principal balance and related interest of the PPP Loan.

Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss was $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to a loss of $0.8 million for the same period in 2020.

The reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP information can be found in the table at the end of this release, which provides the details of CynergisTek's non-GAAP disclosures and the reconciliation of non-GAAP information.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

CynergisTek, Inc. ("CynergisTek" or the "Company") prepares its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In addition to disclosing financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, the Company discloses information regarding Adjusted EBITDA ("Adjusted EBITDA"), which differs from the commonly-used "EBITDA." In addition to adjusting net income (loss) to exclude income taxes, interest, depreciation, and amortization, Adjusted EBITDA also excludes share-based compensation, impairment charges, fair value adjustments, severance, and other cash and non-cash charges and gains.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance as defined in accordance with GAAP. However, Adjusted EBITDA is used internally in planning and evaluating the Company's operating performance. Accordingly, management believes that disclosure of this metric offers investors, bankers, and other stakeholders an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's financial results.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to loss-from-continuing-operations or net-cash-used-in-operating-activities as measures of operating results or liquidity. The Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, and the measures exclude financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are (i) it does not reflect the Company's cash expenditures, or future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments, (ii) it does not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, the Company's working capital needs, (iii) Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments, on the Company's debt, (iv) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements, (v) it does not adjust for all non-cash income or expense items that are reflected in the Company's statements of cash flows, (vi) it does not reflect the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters the Company considers not to be indicative of its ongoing operations, and (vii) other companies in the same industry may calculate this measure differently than the Company does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Management believes Adjusted EBITDA facilitates operating performance comparisons from period to period by isolating the effects of some items that vary from period to period without any correlation to core operating performance or that vary widely among similar companies. These potential differences may be caused by variations in capital structures (affecting interest expense), tax positions (such as the impact on periods or companies of changes in effective tax rates or net operating losses) and the age and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (affecting relative depreciation expense). Management also presents Adjusted EBITDA because (i) management believes this measure is frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies in the same industry, (ii) management believes investors will find this measure useful in assessing the Company's ability to service or incur indebtedness, and (iii) management uses Adjusted EBITDA internally as a benchmark to evaluate the Company's operating performance or compare the Company's performance to that of its competitors.
