Recurring SaaS revenue increased 8% during the second quarter at $610,327 compared to $562,809 in the second quarter of 2017.

Non-recurring revenue declined to $25,615 in Q2 2018 from $121,457 in Q2 2017 due to a one-time project in 2017.
Loss from operating activities in Q2 2018 was $669,264 compared to net income of $82,953 in Q2 2017. Net loss and comprehensive loss for the second quarter was $669,605 compared to net income of $82,319 in the same quarter of 2017. Gross Margin decreased to 51% in the second quarter compared to 55% for the same quarter in 2017.
Because of the increased investments in sales, marketing and product development, the Company-defined adjusted EBITDA was negative $453,000 for the second quarter, compared to a positive EBITDA of $300,000 for the same quarter in 2017.
“The losses in Q2 were due to planned expenses for product development, sales and marketing for the launch of LiaCXTM, which was officially launched on May 1, 2018. We continue to focus resources on LiaCX to ensure its success and we are excited to be fully immersed in this new software marketplace. We are pleased with our initial market traction and we remain optimistic about the potential of our newest software product. Due to anticipated sales cycles we do not expect significant revenue from the new product line to occur until 2019,” said Cameron Watt, President & Chief Executive Officer.
“Our legacy business is strong and growing. Based on current sales information we continue to forecast 10% year over year sales growth with revenues exceeding $15.0M for FY 2018. We remain committed to establishing Intouch as the leading provider of Artificial Intelligence (AI) software within the customer experience management space,” said Watt.
