  • Cash Balances: Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2014, totaled $868,412, an increase of $315,718 from our cash balances at December 31, 2013.

ID Watchdog CEO, Michael Greene, stated, "We are pleased to report another quarter of solid revenue growth in our Employee Benefit and Tech Support Channels, our core distribution channels, which increased 85.0%  in the second quarter of 2014.  Also, during the first half of 2014, we added a number of product enhancements including $1 million in expense reimbursement insurance, Instant Identity Monitoring, which detects potentially fraudulent new accounts at the instant of application, enhanced non-credit loan monitoring, solicitation reduction features as well as a number of other product enhancements.  We believe these enhancements add significant value for our customers and will serve to advance our competitive position in the marketplace."

Mr. Jay Lewis, ID Watchdog's CFO, commented, "As we look forward to the quarter ending September 30, 2014, we expect core distribution revenue growth and total revenue growth of approximately 80% and 45%, respectively, with continued sequential growth in EBITDA.

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 (net income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, gain (loss) on warrant liability and net interest expense) 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.
