The reconciliation of adjusted financial measures with IFRS is presented in Appendix 2 hereof.
Foreword: Pursuant to Inside Secure’s decision to exit from the semiconductor business and in accordance with IFRS 5, income and expense items for the discontinued operation are recognized directly in “net income from discontinued operations” and thus excluded from revenue, adjusted operating income, and EBITDA. Accordingly, results from continuing operations reflect the performance of the software and silicon IP business, the NFC patent licensing program, and corporate costs not transferred or discontinued with the sale of the semiconductor business (mostly general and administrative expenses and, to a lesser extent, selling & marketing expenses, and research & development expenses). Figures for 2015 have been restated in a similar manner to allow comparisons with the corresponding 2016 figures.

Fourth-quarter 2016 revenue
Consolidated revenue in 4Q 2016 was $10.3 million, up 70% from the fourth quarter of 2015, due in particular to growth in royalties, and to a lesser extent to growth in new licenses.
Core software and silicon IP business revenue (excluding semiconductors and NFC patent licensing) was $10.0 million in Q4 2016, up 65% year-on-year. As in Q3 2016, the company again recorded exceptionally high level of revenue from royalties in Q4 2016 due largely to an historical customer of silicon intellectual property products in the U.S. and, consequently, these strong royalty revenues may not be repeated in Q1 2017 and potentially Q2 2017.
New license revenue grew significantly in Q4 2016 to $2.9 million, 4.2 times greater than Q3 2016. This was due to sales performance, and as anticipated, the result of some contracts having shifted from September to October. Q4 2016 license revenue was up 30% compared with Q4 2015.
Maintenance and development agreements revenue in Q4 2016 was $1.1 million, in line with expectations, and $5.0 million for the full year 2016, up 15% from the previous year.
Inside Secure also recorded revenue during Q4 2016 related to the license signed by France Brevets with HTC under the NFC patent licensing program managed by France Brevets.
Full-year 2016 revenue
Consolidated revenue for FY2016 was $49.9 million, up 86% vs. 2015, explained by the combination of strong software revenue, in particular, royalties and strong, however non-recurring, revenue from the NFC patent portfolio monetization program managed by France Brevets (Sony, Samsung, and HTC).
Revenue from core business (excluding semiconductors and NFC patent licensing) was $35.8 million for FY2016, up 35% vs. 2015, driven in particular by strong royalty revenue which almost doubled compared to last year (see above), and robust performance of the content protection business line. Around 70% of these revenues relate to contracts signed prior to 2016 demonstrating the Company’s ability to generate strong recurring revenue.
For the Silicon IP business, on top of its traditional networking for data-centers market, the Company sees traction in the Internet of Things market and scored 8 design wins globally on its VaultIP product and in particular signed in Q4 2016 a comprehensive license with a large semiconductor company for its home automation division.
In the content protection market, traction remains strong with high quality digital contents requiring always more protection, together with an increasing number of devices and file formats to support. In 2016, on top of direct sales, the Company added new reseller agreements and extended existing ones, enabling to generate additional revenue in 2016 and beyond through recurring revenue.
In the application protection market, the Company focuses on providing vertical solutions to secure and enable applications for mobile banking and mobile payments. The Company sees strong traction on these markets in North America, Europe and more recently in Latin America, but sales cycle remain long.
In 2016, Inside Secure’s NFC patent revenue totaled $14.2 million, driven largely by the license with Samsung in Q2 2016 under the NFC patent licensing program managed by France Brevets.
Strong growth of the adjusted gross profit
In 2016, adjusted gross profit increased by $20 million to $ 44.5 million, as a result of strong growth in core software and silicon IP business and high non-recurring NFC patent licensing revenue.
In particular, the core software and silicon IP business generated a gross profit of $34.7 million in 2016, i.e. a gross margin of 97.1% of the revenue, compared with a gross profit of $24.6 million in 2015 (92.4% gross margin).
NFC patent licensing business agreements entered into by France Brevets and three handset makers, contributed to the adjusted gross profit for $9.8 million in 2016 compared to $0 in 2015.
Tight management of operating expense
The 6.6% increase in operating expenses from continuing operations in 2016 was primarily driven by:
- The reallocation of certain company’s resources from the semiconductor business to the continuing core software and technology license business, mainly research and development personnel (in particular for the silicon IP product line), and
- An increase in sales and marketing expense, including sales commissions, while the company managed to reduce general and administrative expenses.
Inside Secure’s second-half 2016 showed the expected benefits of the cost reduction under its restructuring plan, with operating expense going from 18.4 million in first-half 2016 down to $15.3 million in the second-half (please also refer to table in Appendix 3 hereto).
For 2017, the Company anticipates net increase of its operating expense of 11% compared to H2 2016, primarily due to investments in sales and marketing.
Strong improvement of adjusted operating income
In 2016, the Company saw a substantial improvement in it its operating profitability, due to the combination of increased revenue and tight management of operating expenses.
Adjusted operating income from continuing operations was $10.9 million in 2016: $1.6 million coming from the core software and silicon IP business and the balance coming from the contribution of the non-recurring NFC patent license business, compared with a loss of $7.4 million in 2015, due to lower software revenue and no NFC patent license revenue.

EBITDA from continuing operations
In 2016, EBITDA showed a profit of $12.3 million, compared with a loss of $6.1 million in 2015, as a result of the adjusted operating profitability, while the depreciation expense remained flat overall.
Strong improvement of the operating income from continuing operations (IFRS)
Operating income from continuing operations was $2.1 million in 2016, compared with a loss of $18.5 million in 2015.
Operating income for 2016 was impacted mainly by:
- The recognition of a $4.3 million net non-recurring charge arising from the company’s restructuring;
- Amortization expense (non-cash item) related to assets arising upon the company’s acquisitions in recent years (ESS in 2012 and Metaforic in 2014) for $3.8 million, showing a strong drop compared to $9.7 million in 2015 though the ESS acquired intangible assets which are now almost completely amortized. The Company did not recognize any impairment expense of the goodwill in relation with these two acquired businesses.
Financial income (net) from continuing operations
Net financial loss was $ 0.7 million in 2016 vs. a loss of 0.8 million dollars in 2015, primarily due to the impact of the evolution of the EUR / USD exchange rates.
Income tax expense
Income tax expense of $1.7 million in 2016 consisted primarily of withholding taxes paid when licenses are signed with customers in certain Asian countries.
Consolidated net income
In 2016, Company generated consolidated net income (IFRS) of $12.3 million as a result of:
- Net loss from continuing operations of $0.3 million; and
- Net income from discontinued operations of $12.6 million including $17.0 million of net profit from the sale of the semiconductor business in September 2016 (including assumption of intercompany debts by acquirer).
As a reminder, consolidated net loss (IFRS) in 2015 was $44.6 million explained by:
- The adjusted operating loss from the continuing business of $19.7 million, including a non-cash amortization expense related to intangible assets arising from the Company’s recent acquisitions of $9.7 million; and
- The net loss from discontinued operations of $24.9 million, which included, on top of the operating loss, a non-recurring, non-cash net charge of $2.7 million for the impairment of long-term assets related to the semiconductor business; and the recognition of a $7.0 million charge in connection with the implementation of a partnership agreement for the outsourcing of the company’s engineering and semiconductor supply chain activities to a partner on June 30, 2015.
Strong increase in cash position

|Foreign exchange impact||(290)|
|Cash and cash equivalents at end of the period||27 081|
|(*) including the financing of the 2015 research tax credit|
At December 31, 2016, the Company’s consolidated available cash stood at $27.1 million, up from $16.4 million at December 31, 2015 and $20.4 million at June 30, 2016.
Net cash6 stood at $27.0 million at December 31, 2016, compared with $12.5 million at December 31, 2015 and $16.6 million at June 30, 2016.
The increase in net cash position in 2016 notably reflects:
- The improved operating performance ($7.8 million net generated by continuing operations),
- The divestiture from the semiconductor business (upon completion of the sale of its semiconductor business to WISeKey in September 2016, Inside Secure received CHF2 million ($2.1 million) in cash), and
- The $5.5 million capital increase completed in April 2016.
- Operating activities of continuing operations, excluding the change in working capital requirement, generated $7.6 million in cash, while working capital requirement of the continuing business (including financing for the research tax credit for 2015), decreased by $0.5 million.
- Discontinued business absorbed $3.6 million; and
- The restructuring plan triggered a cash outflow of $5.7 million in 2016 (including $2.9 million in relation with the continuing operations).
In the fourth quarter of 2016, Inside Secure did not convert or sell any part of the bonds redeemable in shares received at the closing of the sale of the semiconductor business to WISeKey on September 20, 2016, fair value of which was $11.6 million as at December 31, 2016. Consequently, cash should further increase in 2017 as a consequence to the monetisation of the bonds which the company started in mid-January 2017.
Strong balance-sheet and increased financial flexibility
At December 31, 2016, consolidated shareholders' equity amounted to $63.7 million, compared with $48.8 million at December 31, 2016.
As part of the sale of its semiconductor business, the Company transferred to buyer intangible and tangible assets and liabilities, working capital items (inventories, trade receivables and payables) and other liabilities. As a result, the Company managed to significantly simplify and lighten its balance-sheet and is now operating with a lighter working capital.
In July 2016, Inside Secure terminated its factoring agreement, as this type of financing had become marginal and was no longer relevant to the Company’s software and technology licensing business. The corresponding financing amounted to $3.0 million as at December 31, 2015.
In Q4 2016, Inside Secure renegotiated the terms and conditions of the three on-going financing agreements in relation with research tax credit for the years 2013, 2014, and 2015. As a result, these agreements have been deconsolidated from the balance-sheet, together with the corresponding tax receivables; the transaction having no cash impact though. Consequently, the Company does not show any material indebtedness at year-end 2016.
Outlook for 2017
The Company achieved profitability7 in 2016 through a strategic transformation, the refocusing of its activities and the rightsizing of its operating cost base. In 2017, the Company intends to keep on growing the new license revenue, maintain a strong discipline on operating expenses and sustain profitability7 of its core software and silicon IP business on a full year basis, while investing in sustainable long-term growth.

Appendix 2 - Non-GAAP measures - Reconciliation of IFRS results with adjusted results
The performance indicators presented in this press release that are not strictly accounting measures are defined below. These indicators are not defined under IFRS, and do not constitute accounting elements used to measure the Company’s financial performance. They should be considered as additional information, which cannot replace any other strictly accounting-based operating or financial performance measure, as presented in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and their related notes. The Company uses these indicators because it believes they are useful measures of its recurring operating performance and its operating cash flows. Although they are widely used by companies operating in the same industry around the world, these indicators are not necessarily directly comparable to those of other companies, which may have defined or calculated their indicators differently than the Company, even though they use similar terms.
Adjusted gross profit is defined as gross profit before (i) the amortization of intangible assets related to business combinations, (ii) any potential goodwill impairment, (iii) share-based payment expense and (iv) non-recurring costs associated with restructuring and business combinations and divestiture carried out by the Company.
Adjusted operating income/(loss) is defined as operating income/(loss) before (i) the amortization of intangible assets and masks related to business combinations, (ii) any potential goodwill impairment, (iii) share-based payment expense and (iv) non-recurring costs associated with restructuring and business combinations and divestiture carried out by the Company.
EBITDA is defined as adjusted operating income before depreciation, amortization and impairment losses not related to business combinations.
The following tables show the reconciliation between the consolidated income statements and the adjusted financial indicators, as defined above, for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 respectively:

1 The consolidated financial statements were prepared by the
management board and reviewed by the supervisory board on February 17,
2017; the audit procedure has been completed by the statutory auditors.
2 Prepared in accordance with IFRS, thus excluding the discontinued semiconductor business
3 Excluding the semiconductor business and the NFC patent licensing program
4 Some financial measures and performance indicators are presented on an adjusted basis as defined in Appendix 2 hereof. They should be considered additional information, which cannot replace any other strictly accounting-based operating or financial performance measure as presented in the consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with IFRS in Appendix 1. The reconciliation of adjusted financial measures with IFRS is presented in Appendix 2.
5 Pursuant to Inside Secure’s decision to exit from the semiconductor business and in accordance with IFRS 5, income and expense items for this discontinued operation are recognized directly in “net income from discontinued operations” and thus excluded from revenue, adjusted operating income, and EBITDA. Figures for 2015 have been restated in a similar manner to allow comparisons with the corresponding 2016 figures.
6 Net cash consists of cash on hand, cash equivalents and short-term investments, the net amount of derivatives, less obligations under finance leases, bank overdrafts, bank loans, cash received in return for the assignment of trade receivables under factoring agreements, and any deferred payments due in connection with business combinations. Debt related to the financing of research tax credit claims in relation with non-deconsolidatiing agreements is not taken into account because it will be extinguished when the research tax credit claims are repaid by the French government.
