Share:

MCLEAN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / February 22, 2021 / Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN) today announced its fourth quarter and full year 2020 financial results for the period ending December 31, 2020.

During the fourth quarter, Cyren reported quarterly revenues of $8.4 million, compared to $9.5 million during the fourth quarter of 2019. For the full year ended 2020, revenues were $36.4 million compared to $38.4 million in the prior year. Revenues for the fourth quarter included a one-time reduction of $0.7 million as a result of a multi-year customer contract that was restructured.

The Company's next generation email security product, Cyren Inbox Security, continued to gain traction among enterprises using Microsoft 365, with Q4 revenues increasing 140% over Q3 2020.

"2020 was a year of transition for Cyren as we focused on the execution of a new strategy," said Brett Jackson, CEO of Cyren. "Our teams accomplished our key objectives enhancing our core products, improving customer satisfaction and bringing new product to market. The highlight was the development and launch of our next generation, cloud-based email security product, Cyren Inbox Security. This new product provides Cyren with a significant growth engine into the enterprise market. We plan to continue investing in this opportunity to build market share and grow revenues. We believe that fourth quarter revenue growth is indicative of the potential opportunity we see."

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, adjustments to earn-out obligations, and capitalization of technology. 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 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 publicly filed reports, which are available through www.sec.gov.
