Correction of Errors

During the preparation of the 2019 consolidated financial statements, management became aware of an error in the Company’s accounting for foreign currency remeasurement of refundable taxes in one of its foreign subsidiaries under ASC 830, Foreign Currency Matters spanning from 2008 to 2018 and an overstatement of two accruals. Certain financial information for 2018 has been restated due to the correction of these errors. The tables that accompany this release set out financial information for the year ended 2018, both as previously reported and as restated. For further information relating to these errors, please refer to the explanatory note above the tables.

 

Jack Abuhoff, Chairman and CEO, said, “We are pleased to report sequentially improved revenue, gross margin and Adjusted EBITDA performance in the quarter. We emerged from 2019 with a redesigned solutions and product portfolio to address the data needs of enterprises across verticals for data annotation and data transformation. These solutions and products leverage the data services we have provided historically for large information companies and the significant investments we have made in AI technology over the past three years. We are confident that we will see growth in 2020 as a result.”

In addition, we are pleased to report that we have spent approximately $1.84 million of the $2.0 million stock buyback authorization we announced in July, having purchased 1,503,095 shares of our stock at an average price of $1.23. We continue to see our stock as an exceptional value, and we expect to continue the buyback initiative as appropriate.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include references to Adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-U.S. GAAP financial measure. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to Innodata Inc. and its subsidiaries in accordance with U.S. GAAP before income taxes, depreciation and amortization of intangible assets, impairment charges, stock-based compensation, and loss attributable to non-controlling interests and interest income (expense). We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to our management and investors in evaluating our operating performance and for operational decision-making purposes. In particular, Adjusted EBITDA facilitates period-to-period comparisons of our operating results on a consistent basis by excluding items that are not reflective of our core operations or are not within our control and helps us identify underlying trends in our business. In this regard, we believe it provides useful information about our operating results, enhances the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects and allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by the management in our operational decision-making. We also use this measure to establish operational goals for managing our business and evaluating our performance.

Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results reported under U.S. GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect tax provisions, and such provisions may reflect a reduction in cash available to us;
  • Adjusted EBITDA excludes the potential dilutive impact of stock-based compensation expense related to our workforce;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect interest income (expense) and net loss attributable to non-controlling interests, and these items may represent a reduction or increase in cash available to us;
  • Although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our own industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently from our calculation, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, U.S. GAAP net income (loss).

A reconciliation from net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA (loss) is attached to this release.

Explanatory Note:

During the quarter ended December 31, 2019, the Company determined that the refundable taxes recorded in one of its subsidiaries were not being properly remeasured in accordance with ASC 830, Foreign Currency Matters. Under ASC 830, entities whose functional currency is the U.S. dollar are required to use the remeasurement method and classify accounts into monetary and non-monetary items. Under this method only monetary accounts are subject to foreign currency remeasurement. Monetary accounts are those items whose amounts are fixed in terms of unit of currency by contract or otherwise. The refundable taxes in the Company’s foreign subsidiary should have been classified as monetary assets and remeasured, but were excluded from remeasurement. This exclusion resulted in the understatement of the foreign exchange gains and losses for the years 2008 through 2018. Additionally, the Company identified and corrected errors relating to an overstatement of two long-standing accruals that the Company deemed to be no longer necessary. The Company evaluated the materiality of these errors on both a quantitative and qualitative basis under the guidance of ASC 250, Accounting Changes and Errors Corrections, and determined that it did not have a material impact on previously issued financial statements. The impact of the errors for the improper remeasurement of the refundable taxes and the long-standing accruals relating to periods prior to the year ended December 31, 2019 are reflected as an adjustment to the 2018 direct operating costs in the Consolidated Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Loss while the remainder of the errors were adjusted in the 2018 beginning retained earnings.
