Intrusion Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results

PLANO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 26, 2024 / Intrusion Inc. (NASDAQ:INTZ), a leader in cyberattack prevention solutions, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023.

Recent Financial & Business Highlights:

  • Improved full year EPS to $(0.57) per share from $(0.82) per share in 2022.
  • Announced the expansion of Intrusion Shield SaaS services in the Philippines.
  • Made additional progress toward regaining compliance with the Nasdaq minimum bid price and equity standard requirements.
  • Continuing resolution negatively impacts consulting revenues.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $1.4 million, a decrease of 7% sequentially and 5% compared to the previous year. The decline in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2024 was driven by a decrease in consulting revenue that was mainly associated with the federal government's continuing resolution and the absence of an approved federal budget.

The gross profit margin was 79% for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared to 63% in the fourth quarter of 2022.

Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2023 were $3.5 million, a decrease from $5.4 million in the comparable quarter of last year.

The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $(2.8) million, or $(0.09) per share, compared to a loss of $(5.2) million, or $(0.25) per share for the fourth quarter of 2022.

Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2023, was $5.6 million, a decrease of $1.9 million compared to 2022.

The gross profit margin was 78% for the full year ended December 31, 2023, compared to 55% in 2022.

Operating expenses for the full year ended December 31, 2023, were $16.4 million, a decrease from $20.5 million in 2022.

The net loss for the full year ended December 31, 2023, was $13.9 million, or $(0.57) per share, compared to a loss of $16.2 million, or $(0.82) per share in 2022.

As of December 31, 2023, cash and cash equivalents were $0.1 million, down from $3.0 million on December 31, 2022. Subsequent to year end, the Company announced that it entered into an exchange agreement with Streeterville Capital, LLC to exchange an aggregate $9,275,000 in senior debt pursuant to notes issued in March and June of 2022 for a newly designated Series A Preferred Stock.

"We continue to see strong momentum for our suite of Shield products, with the fourth quarter being our best quarter to date with the addition of seven new logos, including the $5 million multi-year award we announced in October," said Tony Scott, CEO of Intrusion. "While initial revenue contributions from these new contracts will bring modest gains, as deployments are occurring in the first and second quarter of this year, two of these customers have already indicated their intent to further increase their use of Shield throughout 2024. We believe that the addition of these new customers and our growing sales pipeline will help drive Intrusion Shield revenue growth in 2024."

Mr. Scott continued, "Last week, we implemented two key steps in our plan to regain compliance with the minimum bid price and equity standard requirement for continued listing on the Nasdaq Capital Markets with the announcement of a 1-for-20 reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding shares and an exchange agreement with Streeterville Capital to exchange an aggregate of $9,275,000 in senior debt for newly designated Series A Preferred Stock.While there can be no assurance that Intrusion will be able to regain, and thereafter sustain, compliance with Nasdaq's listing requirements, we believe that the Reverse Stock Split and our ability to reduce our overall debt will provide Intrusion with the best option to successfully regain compliance with Nasdaq's listing requirements. Our focus remains on our vision for the future, and we believe that our compelling products and innovative strategies position us well to capitalize on the robust opportunities in our evolving marketplace."
