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.
Additional financial information regarding iSIGN’s operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2016, will be available in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-Q that will be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and available at www.sec.gov.
