Full Year 2013 Highlights:

Revenue from our employee benefits and tech support channels, increased by 39.4% and contributed $417,576 to the total increase in revenues, while revenues of the ISekurity customers and our anti-virus customers contributed $276,396 and $100,173, respectively, to the total increase in revenues.  These increases were partially offset by a $244,395 decrease in revenues from our consumer marketing channel.
  • Gross Profit: Gross profit increased by $985,302, or 143.1%, from $688,663 in 2012 to $1,673,965 in 2013.  The gross margin rates for the 2013 and 2012 were 71.0% and 38.1%, respectively.
  • EBITDA:  For 2013, EBITDA improved by $1,015,814 to $(313,689) as compared with $(1,329,503) in 2012.  The improvement in EBITDA is due primarily to a $985,302 improvement in gross margin as described above.

ID Watchdog CEO, Michael Greene, stated, "We ended 2013 on a very strong note, both financially and operationally, as we continue to expand our customer base through our employee benefits and our tech support channels, which are our core focus for future growth.  Gross margin improved substantially from the prior year and we continue to work to enhance our portfolio of identity theft protection services, while at the same time working to maintain our gross profit margin.  Our success in building our employee benefits and our tech support channels position us well for accelerating growth in 2014 and beyond.  We achieved a number of significant milestones in 2013, including generating positive EBITDA in the fourth quarter of the year, which is a first for the Company."

Mr. Jay Lewis, ID Watchdog's CFO, commented, "We enter 2014 with strong momentum and as we look at the quarter ended March 31, 2014, we expect core distribution revenue growth and total revenue growth of approximately 65% and 40%, respectively, with increasing EBITDA for the quarter and with our cash balances growing significantly to nearly $800,000, an increase of approximately $250,000 over the year end 2013 balances."

About Non-IFRS Financial Measure

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), the Company reports EBITDA (operating income before depreciation and amortization and stock-based compensation) and uses this metric to measure the performance of our business.  EBITDA is not a performance measure defined under IFRS and is not considered an alternative to income (loss) from operations or net earnings (loss) in the context of measuring the Company's performance.  EBITDA does not have a standardized meaning and is therefore not likely to be comparable with similar measures used by other publically traded companies.  EBITDA should not be used as an exclusive measure of cash flow since it does not account for the impact of working capital changes, taxes, interest payments, capital expenditures, debt principal reductions and other sources and uses of cash, and is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Financial information contained in this press release should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in our most recent quarterly reports and our annual report. These documents are available online at www.sedar.com and in the "Company Overview" section of our website at www.IDWatchdog.com.
