Mission Viejo, CA – March 30, 2015 – CynergisTek, Inc. (OTCQB: AUXO), a leading provider of Managed Print Services (MPS) and Cyber Security Services for the healthcare industry, today reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2015.

2015 Highlights:

 Management Commentary

“We concluded 2015 with a strong financial performance driven by our team’s exceptional operational execution with our new MPS contracts during 2015 now totaling more than $80 million in five-year recurring service revenue,” said Joseph J. Flynn, President and CEO of CynergisTek.  “With a significant presence in the Midwest, our contracts now cover a majority of the United States positioning us with a national presence to carry us into 2016 and beyond. The fact that we were able to implement such a large number of locations last year, and to do so efficiently for our clients, has translated into invitations to bid on MPS work at new and even larger health systems,” continued Flynn.

“We have utilized our position as a valued provider to healthcare systems to further advance our risk and information security offerings, and have also expanded our sales staff in order to pursue middle market opportunities, which will enable us to bundle MPS and security services. We are nearing completion of the integration process of the security businesses we acquired in early 2014 and 2015. We believe this area of our business can grow significantly due to the HIPAA compliance requirement to maintain, safe keep, transfer and secure all aspects of data, and this belief is further bolstered by a seemingly endless supply of high profile breaches and resulting large fines,” said Mr. Flynn.

Financial Results for the Full Year ended December 31, 2015

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2015, the Company reported revenues of $61.3 million, an increase of 39% when compared to $44.0 million in 2014. Of this increase, approximately $8.2 million is a result of the addition of new recurring service revenue contracts in 2015.  CynergisTek added approximately $4.4 million in consulting revenues and software subscriptions from its newly acquired security companies.  Equipment sales were $7.8 million in 2015, compared to $3.6 million in 2014, a 116% increase, with fluctuations occurring periodically due to customer equipment fleet refresh cycles that occur, on average, every five years.

Gross profit for fiscal 2015 was $10.6 million, or 17.3% of sales, compared to $8.2 million, or 18.7% of sales, for fiscal 2014. Operating expenses for fiscal 2015 were $9.6 million, compared to $6.6 million in the prior year period. Income from operations was $1.0 million for fiscal 2015, compared to income from operations of $1.7 million in fiscal 2014.

Net income for fiscal 2015 was $1.3 million, or $0.05 per share basic and diluted, compared to $1.3 million or $0.06 per share basic and diluted, in the same period in 2014.

After excluding charges of $0.4 million related to stock-based compensation and $0.5 million for amortization of intangibles, non-GAAP measure of adjusted income from operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 was $1.8 million compared to $2.1 million after excluding charges of $0.3 million related to stock-based compensation and $0.1 million in amortization of intangibles in the same period of 2014.

At December 31, 2015, the Company had $6.4 million of cash and cash equivalents. Cash provided by operating activities for the twelve months ended December 31, 2015 was $2.4 million compared to $1.5 million during the same period in 2014. The Company maintains a $2.0 million accounts receivable line of credit with a commercial bank.

2016 Outlook and Events

“Momentum in our MPS business has been robust and our pipeline for new contracts is still very active. The rapid pace of implementations early last year, in addition to the recently acquired security businesses, drove revenue gains in 2015 approaching 40%.  While we still expect healthy double digit revenue growth this year, top line gains will not be on pace with what we achieved in 2015.  Our business will always be prone to short term spikes and periods of transition as the client life cycle runs its course.  While we expect the top line growth to moderate short term in 2016, we maintain a large pipeline that remains at historic highs,” said Mr. Flynn.

“As is normal in the evolution of a company, we have made the decision to reorganize our Board makeup in order to attract individuals with skill sets required at this stage of our growth and to help us deal with the opportunities and challenges we are now faced with. We are blessed to have had key individuals with healthcare services backgrounds like Bill Leonard and Brian Mulvaney and appreciated their service.  As we look forward, we agreed as a Board to seek out individuals such as J.D. Abouchar who have a deep understanding of our investment space of the rapidly changing Healthcare IT industry,” said Mr. Flynn.
