CYREN Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

May 26, 2015 at 6:10 AM EDT

MCLEAN, Va., May 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced its first quarter 2015 financial results for the period ending March 31, 2015.

CYREN Logo.

During the quarter, CYREN passed significant milestones for CYREN WebSecurity (CWS), its flagship cloud-based security platform. This momentum is being generated by an expanded sales and marketing strategy for CWS, and the launch of several key product enhancements, such as carrier-grade solutions to secure public Wi-Fi hotspots.  The expanded sales strategy leverages the assets from CYREN's entire internal sales force in concert with external business development partners to more rapidly tap into the positive market feedback for this advanced cybersecurity solution.

"During the first quarter, we signed a 5,000-user enterprise customer, which is our largest CWS contract to date, building a positive foundation for the rest of the year," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN. "As our multichannel sales approach evolves, we are actively increasing our direct-to-enterprise approach as well as the productivity of our growing network of OEM and service provider partners, distributors and resellers to continue to grow our bookings and sign larger customer agreements. We have also seen interest in our new carrier security offering, which positions us for future subscriber growth."

First Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) totaled $7.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2014.  As in the second half of 2014, first quarter revenues were partially impacted by the continued decline of the Euro; CYREN generates approximately 40% of its revenues in Euros.
  • Non-GAAP revenues totaled $7.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2014. The difference between non-GAAP and GAAP revenue is derived from the fact that deferred revenues consolidated from acquired companies are recorded based on fair value rather than book value for GAAP purposes.
  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $1.7 million, compared to a loss of $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2014 and a loss of $2.2 million in the previous sequential quarter.
  • GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.05, compared to a loss of $0.08 for the first quarter of 2014.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $1.0 million, compared to a loss of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2014, and a loss of $1.4 million in the previous sequential quarter.
  • Non-GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the first quarter of 2015 was $0.03, compared to a loss of $0.05 for the first quarter of 2014.
  • Cash used by operating activities during the quarter was $2.0 million.
  • Cash as of March 31, 2015 was $8.5 million, compared to $11.1 million as of December 31, 2014. As of March 31, the company had drawn $4.4 million under its credit facility, compared to $4.8 million as of December 31, 2014. During the quarter, the company renewed its credit facility for another year at a reduced limit of $6.0 million.

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

Business Highlights:

  • Launched a new direct-to-enterprise CWS sales model, part of a company-wide focus on increasing market share in the rapidly-growing cloud-based Internet security sector. The new sales model has already generated a robust pipeline numbering in the tens of thousands of enterprise seats.
  • Signed the largest CWS contract to date through our two tier distribution channel with an enterprise customer that has 5,000 users, validating the growing demand for this powerful cloud-based security solution.
  • Signed new CWS reseller agreements with Blue Tie and ExchangeMyMail, two leading email oriended managed service providers in the United States.
  • Expanded CYREN's international CWS reseller network by signing new agreements with Technidata in Mexico, Nobel Security in Argentina, InstaSafe in India and Infosight Solutions in the Philippines. 
  • Released DNS-based policy and security enforcement, a major feature enhancement for CYREN WebSecurity.  DNS-based enforcement enables CYREN to compete in additional service provider markets offering web security protection for public networks and consumer networks.  DNS-based enforcement also provides CWS enterprise customers with a fast, but reliable, security policy enforcement option that can streamline the deployment process and enable protection for new locations in a matter of minutes.
  • Signed a multi-year agreement with Dell to integrate CYREN's antimalware technology into Dell SonicWALL Email Security appliances, software, virtual appliances and hosted services. The agreement with Dell reflects CYREN's continued support for its OEM base and rapidly expanding partner network.
  • Primetals Technologies, a joint venture between Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. and Siemens AG, selected CYREN's EmailSecurity solution as its main defense against cyberattacks, malware and email threats.
  • CYREN participated as an exhibitor at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, the world's largest info security show with over 30,000 industry professionals in attendance. This year's event proved to be CYREN's most successful RSA conference to date, with hundreds of potential leads and dozens of key meetings with strategic partners.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures 

Non-GAAP financial measures consist of GAAP financial measures adjusted to exclude: stock-based compensation expenses, amortization and impairment of acquired intangible assets, executive termination costs, deferred taxes and deferred revenues related to acquisitions, acquisition related costs, one-time settlement agreements, reorganization expenses and adjustments to earn-out obligations. 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, reports on Form 6-K and prospectus supplement dated May 15, 2015 and prospectus dated July 3, 2014 filed pursuant to Rule 424(b)(2), which are available through www.sec.gov
