For the year ended December 31, 2019, our revenue increased 5% to approximately $19.4 million as compared to revenues of $18.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2018. Printed products sales, which include sales of packaging, printing and plastic products, increased 1% in 2019 as compared to 2019, driven by an increase in the sales of printing and packaging products of 4% offset by a decrease in sales of plastic card products of 8%. The Company’s technology sales, services and licensing revenues increased 36% in 2019, as compared to 2018, due primarily to increases in sales of our AuthentiGuard product, which increased approximately $642,000 year-over-year.

 

Total costs and expenses increased to approximately $22.3 million in 2019 compared to approximately $20.2 million in 2018, an increase of 10%. Net other income and expense was an approximate expense of $134,000 in 2019 compared to an approximate gain of $3.2 million in 2018. During 2019, the Company had net loss of approximately $2.9 million as compared to a net income of approximately $1.5 million in 2018, representing a 468% decrease. The primary driver for the year-over-year change in net income/loss was the impact of the net gain from extinguishment of liabilities of approximately $3.5 million which occurred during the 2nd quarter of 2018.
