Identive Group Reports Results for its 2013 Second Quarter

Identive Group, Inc. a provider of products, services and solutions for the identification, security and RFID industries, reported its financial results for the second quarter (Q2) ended June 30, 2013.

“In the second quarter 2013, we delivered growth in target markets and gained traction with key offerings, demonstrating Identive’s strategy is coming to fruition,” said Ayman S. Ashour, CEO of Identive Group. “Focused on becoming the leader in Secure ID, we have been investing in emergent markets with hyper-growth potential, including NFC and mobility solutions, cashless payment, and Identity-as-a-Service. Our Q2 results included successes that we believe are the early stages of important positive trends.

“For example, our increased transponder capacity drove 50% growth in RFID tag and inlay shipments. On the cutting edge of cashless payments, we have established a strong business model and sealed it with additional stadium contracts. In addition, we created a foothold with early adopters of identity on-demand and have begun to build a stable recurring SaaS revenue stream.

“While our revenue growth momentum was offset by delays in project implementation and sales in our normally stable Access Control & Security business, we view the effects of the U.S. Government federal budget sequester as a temporary setback. We are confident this business will improve and augment the growth in our target emergent markets.

“Revenues excluding our U.S. Government business grew 13% year-over-year. During Q2, more than one-quarter of transponders shipped were NFC, and more intelligent products sales continued to improve transponder margins. These factors, combined with good cost management, resulted in improvements to the bottom line,” added Ashour.

David Wear, chief financial officer of Identive stated, “We believe our August financing demonstrates our investors agree there is great promise in NFC and mobility solutions, cashless payment, and cloud-based identity management. With the capital raise we announced today and our strongest backlog to date, we are better positioned to drive ahead with our strategy for investment in products, solutions and capacity. While our near-term guidance is modest, we have sown the seeds for long-term growth.”
