Cyren Announces Record Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Achieves 20% sequential revenue growth; highest quarterly revenue in company history

PR Newswire

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN) today announced its second quarter 2018 financial results for the period ending June 30, 2018.

During the second quarter, Cyren reported its highest ever quarterly revenues of $9.2 million – an increase of 20% over the first quarter 2018, and 18% over the second quarter 2017.

The growth was driven primarily by a large contract expansion with Microsoft, and double digit growth in the enterprise business.  As previously announced, Microsoft has partnered with Cyren to integrate its anti-phishing technology into Office 365 in order to protect millions of enterprise users in real-time from the latest phishing attacks.  Bookings from enterprise accounts, excluding Microsoft, were up 277% over the second quarter of 2017, while enterprise revenue recognition during the second quarter grew by 43% year-over-year.

"We are extremely pleased with our financial results during the second quarter," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Cyren. "It's rewarding to see that our hard work and product innovation translated to record revenue growth during the quarter.  We look forward to a strong second half of 2018."

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the second quarter of 2018 were $9.2 million, compared to $7.8 million during the second quarter of 2017, and $7.6 million last quarter.  This translates to an increase of 18% year-over-year and 20% quarter-over-quarter.
  • GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $4.3 million, compared to a net loss of $2.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, and $5.3 million last quarter.
  • GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2018 was $0.08, compared to a loss of $0.06 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2017, and $0.10 last quarter.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $3.7 million, compared to a Non-GAAP net loss of $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2017, and $4.9 million last quarter.
  • Non-GAAP loss per basic and diluted share was $0.07 for the second quarter of 2018, compared to a Non-GAAP loss of $0.06 per share in second quarter of 2017, and $0.09 last quarter.
  • Operating cash flow during the second quarter of 2018 was $0.9 million, compared to operating cash usage of $1.8 million during the second quarter of 2017.
  • Net cash flow for the second quarter of 2018 was negative $1.3 million, compared to negative $2.0 million during the second quarter of 2017.
  • Cash balance as of June 30, 2018 was $16.6 million, compared to $11.6 million as of June 30, 2017.

For information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this release, please see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of Selected GAAP Measures to Non-GAAP Measures."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • In April, the company announced a major contract expansion with Microsoft to integrate Cyren anti-phishing services directly into Office 365 and Exchange Online platforms. This was a material contract expansion, which is valued at over $20 million to Cyren over three years.
  • Since the beginning of the second quarter, Cyren has added approximately 60 new enterprise customers onto its CCS email and web security platform. This includes a large multi-national software company where Cyren was selected to protect tens of thousands of email users on over 170 enterprise domains.
  • At the beginning of Q2, Cyren announced several major product enhancements to its award winning CCS platform. The latest release includes Cyren's innovative cryptocurrency mining detection capability, advanced email security imposter detection, and cloud access security shadow IT visibility and control.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude: stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and deferred taxes related to acquisitions, one-time gain from sale of investment in affiliate, adjustments to earn-out obligations, capitalization of technology, accretion of discount on convertible note and change in fair value of the embedded conversion feature. The purpose of such adjustments is to give an indication of the company's performance exclusive of non-cash charges and other items that are considered by management to be outside of the company's core operating results. The company's non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with the company's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Company management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate the business and make operating decisions.

These non-GAAP measures are among the primary factors management uses in planning for and forecasting future periods. The company believes this adjustment is useful to investors as a measure of the ongoing performance of the business. The company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide consistent and comparable measures to help investors understand the company's current and future operating cash flow performance. These non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Reconciliation between results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis is provided in a table immediately following the Consolidated Statements of Income. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Management uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures when evaluating the business internally and therefore felt it important to make these non-GAAP adjustments available to investors.

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including projections about the company's business, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. For example, statements in the future tense, and statements including words such as "expect," "plan," "estimate," "anticipate," or "believe" are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on information available at the time of the press release and the company assumes no obligation to update any of them. The statements in this press release are not guarantees of future performance and actual results could differ materially from current expectations as a result of numerous factors, including business conditions and growth or deterioration in the internet security market, technological developments, products offered by competitors, availability of qualified staff, and technological difficulties and resource constraints encountered in developing new products, as well as those risks described in the company's Annual Reports on Form 20-F and reports on Form 6-K, which are available through www.sec.gov.
