NEW YORK, March 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pareteum Corporation (OTC Pink Open Market: TEUM), a global cloud platform-as-a-service (CPaaS) company, achieved another significant milestone today with the announcement of its full-year 2019 financial results and restated first and second quarter financial results for 2019. The Company expects to release its 2019 annual report on Form 10-K and interim periods included therein later today. The Company expects to complete the process and file full-year 2020 financial information soon by becoming fully current with respect to the filing of its quarterly and annual financial results. Pareteum’s Board of Directors and executive management have instituted significant changes to reconstitute the company to position for future growth and value creation.

“With our 2019 results completed, we are now fully focused on filing 2020 full-year and quarterly results followed by the cadence of regular quarterly reporting for 2021,” said Bart Weijermars, Pareteum’s interim CEO. “Our management team and the Board have worked diligently to bring the Company back into compliance while improving internal controls, upgrading talent within the organization and positioning the business for future growth. Pareteum’s technology and broad group of network connectivity partners position us well to take advantage of industry growth trends going forward. Entering 2021, we see tremendous opportunity ahead as our platform is uniquely able to support digital transformation and the large and growing sectors in need of mobile platforms, device management and connectivity.”

Full-Year 2019 Financial Results:

  • Revenue was $62.0 million for the fiscal year 2019 compared to $20.3 million in the prior year, with most of the increase driven by a full-year of results from the Artilium acquisition and the addition of iPass revenues following the acquisition in the first quarter of 2019, with the balance of growth from the ongoing usage from new and existing partners and subscribers.
  • Net loss was $226.8 million in the fiscal year 2019, compared to a net loss of $18.0 million in the prior year, driven in large measure by a non-cash impairment charge for goodwill and intangible assets of $161.0 million related to the Artilium and iPass acquisitions, as well as the integration costs resulting from those same acquisitions.

We are encouraged by the ongoing level of activity from our partners and customers and will continue to launch new service offerings to support their efforts. We expect 2020 revenue will continue to grow despite the challenging COVID-19 economic environment.”
