iSignthis Ltd (ISX), a payment identity provider, has released its financial results for the second quarter of 2020 this Friday, with the company revealing how its suspension from the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) has impacted the company.
Although ISX has felt the impact of ASX’s suspension, the company has managed to report its fifth consecutive quarter of positive operating cash flows, with iSignthis noting $1.6 million for the three month period, slightly down from $1.78 million in the previous quarter.
Receipts from customers in the second quarter dropped by around 20 percent from the first quarter of 2020 to $8.4 million, the statement filed through the ASX shows. This was due to impacts from the ASX suspension and the coronavirus pandemic.
Reduction in confidence leads to a drop in client funds
Client funds held by the payments company decreased during the quarter to sit around $82 million. This was because of a reduction in customer confidence as a result of ISX’s suspension from ASX, the company said in its statement.
