PRESS RELEASE

 

Cyren Announces Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

 

- - -

 

Ransomware outbreaks drive demand for Cyren’s internet security services and fast time-to-protection

 

McLean, Va. – August 16, 2017 – Cyren (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced its second quarter 2017 financial results for the period ending June 30, 2017.

 

The second quarter was highlighted by continued expansion of Cyren’s enterprise SaaS platform strategy. During the quarter, Cyren increased the number of new enterprise customers using the Cyren Cloud Security (CCS) platform for email, web, or DNS security. In the first half of 2017, the company added approximately 125 new enterprise SaaS customers, with over 500% growth in North America compared to the same period a year ago. In addition, Cyren’s EMEA partner program is expanding rapidly and the company has certified over 10 channel partners to sell Cyren’s internet security services.

 

Cyren also won significant new and renewal contracts in the Threat Intelligence Services business which will have a positive impact on revenues beginning in the third and fourth quarter. Due to timing of expiring contracts and ramp-up of revenue recognition for new customer contracts, the second quarter shows a small decline in revenue compared to the first quarter.

 

“Over the past quarter we saw unprecedented ransomware attacks, most notably with the WannaCry and Petya outbreaks that affected hundreds of thousands of computers globally. Fortunately Cyren’s customers were unaffected by these outbreaks, as our systems detected and blocked all of the variants of these viruses without a single customer infection reported,” said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at Cyren. “This is significant because it shows the ability of our cloud platform to detect and block attacks before they impact the endpoint. I believe that this fast time-to-protection provides us with a significant advantage over our competitors and will lead to increasing revenues in future quarters.”

 

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Highlights:

 

  Revenues for the second quarter of 2017 were $7.8 million, up from $7.6 million for the second quarter of 2016. Revenues for the first half of 2017 were $15.7 million compared to $15.0 million for the same period in 2016, an increase of 5%.
     
  GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $2.7 million, compared to a net loss of $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $2.5 million last quarter.

  

    GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2017 was $0.07, compared to a loss of $0.02 per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2016 and $0.06 per share last quarter.
     

 

  

 

 

 

    Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $2.5 million, compared to a Non-GAAP net loss of $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2016 and $2.4 million last quarter.
     
    Non-GAAP loss per basic and diluted share was $0.07 for the second quarter of 2017, compared to a Non-GAAP loss of $0.00 per share in second quarter of 2016.
     
    Operating cash usage during the second quarter was $1.8 million, compared to operating cash usage of $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2016.
     
  Net cash usage during the second quarter was $2.0 million, compared to net cash usage of $1.1 million during the second quarter of 2016.
     
  Cash balance as of June 30, 2017 was $11.6 million, compared to $13.5 million as of March 31, 2017. The company carries convertible notes with a principal balance of $6.3 million which were issued at the end of Q1 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:

 

  Cyren signed a number of new customers who deployed multiple services using Cyren’s newly released CCS 4.0 platform, which delivers email security, web security, DNS security and cloud sandboxing all from the same integrated multi-tenant cloud platform. Cyren’s install base of over 1,000 enterprise accounts represents a large upsell opportunity for Cyren customers to deploy multiple cloud security services over the coming quarters.

 

  During the quarter, Cyren renewed and expanded several customers using its Threat Intelligence Services, including more than doubling the contract value of one of its largest customers to total more than $6 million over the next three years. The well-known marquee customer recently added Cyren’s Phishing Intelligence solution to protect millions of enterprise users from advanced malware and phishing attacks.

 

  In June, Cyren was awarded a cybersecurity grant from the Israeli Innovation Authority (IIA) at Israel's Ministry of Economy and Industry. The grant follows similar awards in 2015 and 2016, and will offset R&D expenses by approximately $930 thousand during 2017. The grant reduced R&D expenses by approximately $487 thousand during the quarter, though there was no cash impact during the quarter.

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, executive termination costs, deferred taxes and deferred revenues 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.
