iSIGN Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

REDWOOD SHORES, CA, May 16, 2016 – iSign Solutions Inc. (“iSIGN”) (OTCQB: ISGN), a leading supplier of electronic signature and other software solutions enabling secure, cost-effective and paperless  management  of  contracts  and  other  document-based  transactions,  today  reported revenue of $276,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016, a decrease of $170,000, or 38%, compared to revenue of $446,000 for the prior year.

“These results reflect our ongoing efforts to transition from our historic revenue model of selling one-time,  up-front,  perpetual  licenses to the current focus  on transaction-based,  recurring revenue,”  said  Philip  Sassower,  co-chairman  and  chief  executive  officer  for  iSIGN.  “We  are committed to a software partner integration strategy and our aim to become the leading white label provider of electronic signature and digital transaction management solutions. We believe that  this  ‘wholesale’ approach  to  the  market  is  timely, as  acceptance  of  e-signature  is accelerating. It also leverages the strength of our enterprise solutions and our comparatively low selling and cloud infrastructure costs. We expect this transition to continue during the balance of 2016 as several key partners under contract with iSIGN move into production and customer roll out.”

For  the  quarter ended  March 31,  2016,  operating  expenses  were  $1,420,000,  a decrease  of $44,000, or 3%, compared to operating expenses of $1,464,000 in the prior year. This decrease primarily was  due to  lower  headcount  in  both  engineering  and  sales  and marketing,  offset  by certain charges related to our attempted public offering in February.

For  the quarter ended March 31, 2016,  the net loss attributable  to common  stockholders was $2,431,000,  an increase  of  $171,000,  or  8%,  compared  to  a  net  loss  attributable  to  common stockholders  of  $2,260,000  in  the  prior  year.  This  increase  primarily  was  due  to  a  $126,000 increase in loss from operations, resulting from the above mentioned decrease in revenue offset by a decrease in operating expenses, a $217,000 increase in interest expense and amortization of  debt  discount,  and a  $124,000  increase  in preferred  stock  dividend  expense,  offset  by  a $282,000 decrease in accretion of beneficial conversion feature.
