RALEIGH, N.C., November 14, 2019 – Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc. (OTCPK: LDSRD), a leading data security and privacy software company, today reported operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, including net revenue of $628,000 for the quarter, and strong billings growth quarter over quarter. Net billings represent actual sales which include revenues to be deferred over the term of the contract periods.
Jason Remillard, CEO of Data443, commented, “We delivered strong third quarter and nine-month results and continue to make solid progress towards achieving our long-term goals in delivering a complete data privacy, security and governance ecosystem that is unique and unrivaled in the marketplace. I’m very pleased with the seamless integration of DataExpressTM into the Company, along with achieving a significant customer renewal, and more to come! There’s no question that the last several months have been challenging in terms of our recent corporate actions, but I’m very proud of our team for keeping focused on the tasks at hand.”
“As we look towards the end of 2019, we expect to end the year at a very active pace, both commercially, as well as at the corporate level. As of today, we are less than two months away from the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) taking effect, the first significant data consent and privacy legislation in the United States, perhaps the most comprehensive regulations since GDPR. Many companies don’t understand that preparations need to be made now, before the regulation (and enforcement) goes into effect on January 1, 2020. This poses an incredible opportunity to drive home the importance of mitigating these compliance risks, positioning our sales staff to deliver more education and demos, with the goal of increasing our already growing customer base.
“Similarly, we will soon announce the effectiveness of our new trading symbol, “ATDS,” which stands for what we do and what we are; ’All Things Data Security’. That dovetails nicely with our formal corporate name change to ’Data443 Risk Mitigation, Inc.’ As previously communicated, we also intend to submit our application to OTC Markets to list our stock to the OTCQB, or the ’Over the Counter Quality Board’. This elevated market tier will provide a more appropriate venue for the trading of our stock and reflects our continued commitment to be a fully SEC-reporting company within improved capital markets, that only helps advance our growing operating business. Additional updates that we anticipate will be meaningful to shareholders that will be announced before the end of the year as we continue to execute our aggressive business plan”
“In conclusion, I want to thank our loyal employees, customers and shareholders for their continued support. As we continue to build an unmatched portfolio of products and services, capturing additional spend from existing clients and growing our new prospect base for our services, we will continue to proceed in closing acquisitions that are accretive and fit within our unique framework and match our financial goals,” concluded Mr. Remillard.
