MCLEAN, Va., June 14, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT) ("IronNet"), a leading provider of solutions Transforming Cybersecurity Through Collective Defense℠, announced today its financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended April 30, 2022.

"In the past several months, President Biden and his cyber leaders have urged the market to embrace the concept of Collective Defense — that ‘you have to beat all of us to beat one of us.’ We firmly believe this is the future of cybersecurity," said General (Ret.) Keith Alexander, Chairman and co-CEO of IronNet. "IronNet Collective Defense is the only anonymized threat detection collaboration solution available, giving our customers the advantage of higher efficiency in their cyber defense as they leverage the significant talent of organizations across the community."

William Welch, co-CEO of IronNet, commented: "I am proud of our team which delivered new transactional Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) of $5.5 million in the quarter. Our topline results were consistent with our expectation that certain customers in our transactional business would be delayed in signing or renewing their contracts, resulting in reduced ARR and revenue from the prior quarter. We would like to reiterate that we see these opportunities as pending rather than lost. In addition to our transactional business, we believe that our strategic business pipeline of deals larger than $5 million in ARR remains strong, and our conviction is high that a number of these opportunities will materialize to support our growth for the year."

Fiscal First Quarter 2023 Financial & Operating Highlights

  • Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR): $30.1 million at April 30, 2022, compared to $25.6 million at the end of the same quarter last year.

  • Revenue: Revenue for the first quarter was $6.7 million compared to $6.4 million in the same quarter last year. Cloud subscription revenue was $5.2 million, or 81% of product revenue, compared to 65% in the same quarter last year.

  • Gross Margin: Gross margin for the first quarter was 62.7% compared to 69.6% in the same quarter last year, with 3.1% of the gross margin in the first quarter related to sensor inventory charges to support anticipated deployments this year.

  • Net loss: Net loss for the first quarter was $33.2 million compared to $15.5 million in the same quarter last year. Excluding stock-based compensation expense and transaction costs and fees, net loss for the first quarter would be $21.4 million compared to $14.9 million in the same quarter last year.

  • Dollar-based average contract length: 3.2 years for the first quarter, compared to 2.8 years in the same quarter last year.

  • Cash and cash equivalents: $31.4 million at end of the first quarter. IronNet has not yet drawn on its equity line facility.

  • Customer Count: 91 compared to 44 at the end of the same quarter last year.

Business Highlights

  • Honored with the 2022 Global Infosec Award in the category of Advanced Persistent Threat Detection and Response from Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

  • Announced as a flagship partner in the Mandiant® Cyber Alliance Program, an intelligence-led, multi-vendor approach to nation-grade intelligence, innovative integrated solutions and expert managed services.

  • Detected a threat hijacking attack carrying Emotet malware against an organization located in the Asia Pacific region this May, likely part of a new campaign by the MUMMY SPIDER threat group, designed to test a new bypass for Microsoft disabling macros by default for use in future large-scale campaigns. These and other important findings by IronNet Threat Research can be found on our blog and included in our monthly Threat Intelligence Briefs.

Outlook

James Gerber, CFO of IronNet, stated: "We reaffirm our revenue and ARR guidance for the fiscal year based on the visibility we have today into the transactional side of the business as well as the continued health of our strategic pipeline of opportunities. With execution and a balanced approach to expense management, we expect to maintain the operational and strategic flexibility needed to continue to advance our market strategy."

For the fiscal year 2023, IronNet still expects:

  • Revenue of approximately $34 million, representing nearly 25% growth year over year

  • ARR of approximately $48 million at the end of the fiscal year, representing 50% growth year over year

Certain Definitions

Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) -- Calculated at a particular measurement date as the annualized value of our then existing customer subscription contracts and the portions of other software and product contracts that are to be recognized over the course of the contracts and that are designed to renew, assuming any contract that expires during the 12 months following the measurement date is renewed on its existing terms.

Dollar-based average contract length: Calculated by multiplying the average total length of our customer contracts, measured in years or fractions thereof, by the respective revenue recognized for the last three months of each reporting period, and then dividing by the revenue attributable to software and product customers for the same three-month period used in the numerator. Because many of our customers have similar buying patterns and the average term of our contracts is more than 12 months, this metric provides a means of assessing the degree of built-in revenue repetition that exists across our customer base. Declines in average contract length are not reflective of the average lifetime of a customer.
