Highlights and Accomplishments for the First Quarter of 2022 and Subsequently:
- Signed agreements with a US medical certifying board, a FinTech provider of tax information to more than 50 lenders, and a lending platform for medical professionals to integrate authID’s Verified™ products, including automated identity verification and facial biometric authentication.
- Through US channel partners, added several FinTech customers who offer consumer, auto and medical lending to reduce identity fraud in digital customer onboarding.
- In February, joined the Microsoft Partner Network by integrating authID’s Verified CloudConnect™ with Microsoft Office 365 and Azure via Active Directory Federation Services. Verified CloudConnect™ will now enable Microsoft Office 365 and Azure users to access strong multi-factor authentication.
- In February, received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a patent that will be issued May 10 to protect the multi-party, multi-factor authentication, transaction authorization method that is critical to Verified’s step-up authentication process. The process combines an account holder’s explicit consent for a transaction with identity verification, and secures it with a unique digital signature, thereby creating an unchallengeable audit trail for all parties.
- In March, was named the 2022 winner of the “Best ID Management Platform” by FinTech Breakthrough Awards, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global FinTech market today.
- In April, named Joe Trelin, former CLEAR executive, to authID’s Board of Directors. Trelin brings to authID deep industry experience in technology product management as well as systems, platform, and application, and business development.
- On April 26, announced the planned retirement of CFO Stuart Stoller, who will remain on as a consultant, and the appointment of his successor, Annie Pham as CFO, in June. Pham brings deep experience across all aspects of finance, and has particular expertise in the software, subscription and SaaS industries, where she has scaled teams and best practices in finance to support billions of dollars in rapid revenue growth at major corporations.
- In May, achieved ISO 30107-3 Level 2 standard for Presentation Attack Detection for the company’s Verified™ platform, which successfully recognized and prevented more than 700 presentation attacks for a 0% failure rate. This successful independent testing demonstrates the additional fraud protection and security authID can provide to its customers.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
The Company provides certain non-GAAP financial measures in this statement. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA, when viewed with our results under GAAP and the accompanying reconciliations, provides useful information about our period-over-period results. Adjusted EBITDA is presented because management believes it provides additional information with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities and is also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of comparable companies. We also rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a primary measure to review and assess the operating performance of our company and our management. These non-GAAP key business indicators, which include Adjusted EBITDA, should not be considered replacements for and should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures.
We define Adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net loss adjusted to exclude: (1) interest expense, (2) interest income, (3) provision for income taxes, (4) depreciation and amortization, (5) stock-based compensation expense (stock options and restricted stock) and (6) certain other items management believes affect the comparability of operating results. Please see Table 1 below for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.
