Conclusion on IMPR IPO

IMPR has a large market share and should be profitable by now.  Only half of revenue is from sales of new perpetual licenses, the other half is recurring maintenance revenue.

Q1 '14's loss increased to -$7 million from -$1.5 million, in large part to increased sales and marketing expenses.

IMPR should have managed its income statement better in the quarter prior to its IPO.

The rating on IMPR is neutral.

IMPR's Business

IMPR is a leading provider of authentication and access management technology solutions for the healthcare industry.

IMPR’s flagship solution, Imprivata OneSign, is an integrated enterprise single sign-on, authentication and access management and workflow automation platform that addresses multiple security and productivity challenges faced by hospitals and other healthcare organizations.

Healthcare information access

By enabling fast, secure access to healthcare information technology systems, IMPR believes its solutions save clinicians significant time to focus on patient care, increase their productivity and satisfaction, and help healthcare organizations comply with complex privacy and security regulations.

Imprivata OneSign can be installed on every workstation and other application access point throughout a healthcare organization and once deployed becomes a critical part of the customer’s security and access infrastructure.

Widely used

As a result, IMPR believes that Imprivata OneSign is one of the most widely-used technology solutions by its customers’ physicians, nurses and other clinicians.

As of March 31, 2014, its Imprivata OneSign solution had over 2.8 million licensed users in over 950 healthcare organizations in 20 countries, including large integrated healthcare systems, academic medical centers and small- and medium-sized independent healthcare facilities.

Many other industries face security and productivity challenges similar to those in healthcare.

Although healthcare is its primary focus, as of March 31, 2014 Imprivata OneSign had over 770,000 licensed users in over 400 non-healthcare organizations, including financial services, public sector and other industries.
