Overview of IDAI’s financial performance:

  • IDAI’s customer network continued to diversify as it added three significant revenue-producing clients in the first half of 2021 while maintaining and growing its service agreements with its two largest clients.
  • The addition of two new contracts for specialized contracts won by IDAI with a long-standing client will likely result in continued volume-based revenue growth from long-standing client relationships in H2 of 2021 and beyond, as well as substantial revenue growth from new clients.
  • For H1 2021, IDAI will have a 29% increase in Gross Sales (non-GAAP) as compared to H1 2020 as well as a heavy tail-end loading in Q4.
  • As a result of the added revenues from three new revenue-generating clients, the company expects to recoup revenue through pay-per-use and other usage-based engagements in the long run.
  • Due to IDAI’s responsibilities in building the new technology platform, the entire cost of building it was expensed for H1 2021 as compared to H1 2020.
  • In addition, IDAI increased its investment in business development in order to grow and nurture a pipeline of sales prospects for future revenue generating contracts in key markets.
  • IDAI will also expand sales capabilities in order to meet growing demand across multiple verticals.

A contract of considerable importance:

Trust Stamp (IDAI) has entered into a substantial biometric services contract for a fixed price of $3,920,764 with the United States Federal Government, requiring significant investments in productization, business development, and due diligence in previous quarters of this year. Although there is a performance period of six months starting on 27 September 2021, the performance is expected to be completed substantially in the financial year 2021.
