Cyren Announces Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

·14 min read
Cyren Ltd

Enterprise Anti-Phishing ARR Grows 87% Year-over-Year and Core Threat Detection Business Exceeds Expectations

MCLEAN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / August 15, 2022 / Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN) today announced its second quarter 2022 financial results for the period ending June 30, 2022.

Cyren reported quarterly revenues of $5.8 million for the second quarter of 2022, a slight increase compared to $5.7 million for the second quarter of 2021. Net loss from continuing operations was $5.8 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a net loss of $5.9 million in 2021.

During the second quarter, Cyren agreed to sell its legacy secure email gateway business for €10.0 million in cash, subject to customary post-closing adjustments, and the transaction closed on August 1, 2022. As a result, and in accordance with GAAP, Cyren's second quarter continuing financial results are presented net of the divested business.

"Cyren's second quarter included several key highlights," said Brett Jackson, CEO of Cyren. "First, we announced the divestment of a legacy product line which enables us to focus on products with the best potential for growth and the proceeds from the sale strengthen our balance sheet. Second, our enterprise anti-phishing product continues to perform in the market with 87% year-over-year annual recurring revenue (ARR) growth. Finally, our threat detection business exceeded expectations in the quarter, driven by multiple replacements of competitive malware detection products."

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were $5.8 million, compared to $5.7 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Operating expenses increased to $8.5 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $8.0 million for the second quarter of 2021, driven by overall compensation increases compared to the prior year as well as higher general and administrative expenses largely due to legal costs related to the legacy secure email gateway business sale.

  • Cyren reported financial income of $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to a financial expense of $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. This $0.5 million change was driven by foreign exchange rates, as the significant decline in the Euro against the U.S. dollar during the second quarter caused a reduction in certain Euro-denominated liabilities.

  • Net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2022 was $5.8 million, compared to a net loss of $5.9 million for the second quarter of 2021.

  • As a result of the divestment of Cyren's legacy secure email gateway business, Cyren reported a loss from discontinued operations of $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2022. This one-time event contributed to Cyren's $12.4 million GAAP net loss for the quarter, compared to the $5.6 million net loss reported for the second quarter of 2021

  • GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2022 was $0.75, compared to a loss of $1.55 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $4.7 million, compared to a net loss of $4.8 million in the second quarter of 2021.

  • Non-GAAP net loss per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2022 was $0.61, compared to a loss of $1.28 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2021.

  • Cash used in operating activities for the for the second quarter of 2022 was $8.1 million compared to operating cash usage of $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2021, This increase was largely the result of timing differences related to changes in accounts receivable, deferred revenue and other accrued balances. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, cash used in operating activities was $5.7 million compared to $7.6 million in the first half of 2021.

  • Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of June 30, 2022, was $10.0 million, compared to $18.3 million as of March 31, 2022.

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:

  • On August 1, 2022, Cyren completed the sale of is legacy secure email gateway business for €10 million, subject to customary post-closing adjustments.

  • On June 22, 2022, Cyren announced that John B. Sanfilippo and Son (JBSS) adopted Cyren Inbox Security to proactively combat a dramatic rise in ransomware threats and meet evolving cybersecurity insurance requirements.

  • On May 4, 2022, Cyren announced that Fisher Jones Greenwood adopted Cyren Inbox Security to detect, contain and remediate evasive email threats such as business email compromise (BEC), Office 365 account takeover, and executive fraud campaigns that sought to target employees and intercept transactions.

  • On April 12, 2022, Cyren announced that Quintessential Brands has adopted Cyren Inbox Security to reduce the cybersecurity risks associated with the most common attack vector - email.

  • On April 5, 2022, Cyren announced a competitive replacement program for organizations that are in need of a different provider of malware detection capabilities.

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, including statements regarding expectations that Cyren Inbox Security will be the key driver of future growth, expectations regarding developing a high-growth enterprise revenue stream that will materially contribute to Cyren's results and expectations regarding our products, including Cyren Inbox Security. 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 our ability to continue as a going concern, our ability to execute our business strategy, including our sales and business development plans, our ability to timely and successfully enhance and improve our existing solutions and introduce new solutions, the commercial success of such enhancements and new solutions, including Cyren Inbox Security, lack of demand for our solutions, including as a result of actual or perceived decreases in levels of advanced cyber attacks, our ability to manage our cost structure, avoid unanticipated liabilities and achieve profitability, our ability to grow our revenues, including the ability of existing solutions to drive sufficient revenue, our ability to attract new customers and increase revenue from existing customers, market acceptance of our existing and new product offerings, our continued listing on NASDAQ, 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.
