Revenue totaled $3.5 million in the first quarter of 2019, as compared to $3.3 million in the same year ago quarter. Managed and professional services revenue increased by $0.2 million and product sales (hardware and software) increased by $0.1 million.
Cost of sales were $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2019 as compared to $2.3 million in the same year ago quarter. The increase in cost of sales was due primarily to an increase in managed and professional services cost of sales ($113,000) with the balance attributable to product cost of sales.
Net and comprehensive loss was $403,000 or $(0.01) per share in the first quarter of 2019, as compared to a loss of $127,000 or $(0.00) per share in the same year-ago quarter.
Adjusted EBITDA was a negative $233,000 in the first quarter of 2019, changed from a positive $15,000 in same period in 2018 (see definition of adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP term, below). Net of a one-time extraordinary event, the recent quarter’s Adjusted EBITDA would be a positive $24,000.
Cash totaled $60,000 at March 31, 2019, compared to $114,000 as of December 31, 2018. The decrease was primarily due to the expense of the Investor Awareness Campaign partially offset by financing activities.
“Our first quarter top line and Gross Profit results are in line with expectations while the bottom line and adjusted EBITDA, net of a notable extraordinary expense, compare favorably with recent results,” remarked Michael Panec, VirtualArmour’s CFO. “As always, we are managing a careful balance between cash flow and taking advantage of the tremendous growth opportunities available in the current market.”
Panec added: “Looking ahead in 2019, with the ongoing growth in customer acquisition and the addition of customers on a monthly recurring revenue model, coupled with its high customer retention, VirtualArmour expects to maintain appreciable growth into 2019.”
“In Q1 2019, our top-line growth was driven by an expanding revenue stream from global managed services and professional services,” said Russ Armbrust, CEO of VirtualArmour. “This was achieved by signing four new recurring revenue contracts for managed and professional services.
During this quarter, VirtualArmour started to deliver strategy-driven engagements that drive action, value, and accountability by providing consistent, positive customer experiences, communications, and service transparency to each client. Altogether, this progress has enhanced our ability to secure new clients and gain additional business from current clients, as well as helped us maintain an industry-leading customer retention rate.”

Supplemental Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to GAAP financial measures, management uses non-GAAP financial measures to assess the company’s operational performance. It is likely that the non-GAAP financial measures used by the company will not be comparable to similar measures reported by other issuers or those used by financial analysts as their measures may have different definitions.
Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of an entity’s historical or future financial performance, financial position or cash flows that is neither calculated nor recognized under IFRS. Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures can be important as they provide users of the financial statements with a better understanding of the results of the company’s recurring operations and their related trends, while increasing transparency and clarity into its operating results. Management also believes these measures can be useful in assessing the company’s capacity to discharge its financial obligations.
In Q1 2018, management began assessing its operational performance using supplemental non-GAAP statement of income, adjusted GAAP, which is defined as loss for the period as reported excluding depreciation and amortization, change in fair value of warrant derivative liabilities, share-based compensation and interest expense.
Adjusted EBITDA is not a term recognized under GAAP and non-GAAP measures do not have standardized meaning. Accordingly, non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
As disclosed in its press release of January 24, 2019, VirtualArmour engaged in an Investor Awareness Campaign In the first quarter 2019. The purpose of the campaign was to raise awareness of the company, its services and the growth potential of its industry. The cost of this campaign totaled $257,000. There is no expectation that this type of activity will be undertaken again in the foreseeable future.
