Cyren Inbox Security continues to gain momentum supporting company's growth strategy

MCLEAN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / November 16, 2020 / Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN), a provider of email security and threat intelligence solutions, today announced its third quarter 2020 financial results for the period ending September 30, 2020.

"The third quarter was our first full quarter in the market with our next generation email security product, Cyren Inbox Security, and we are very pleased with product-market fit and customer wins within the quarter," said Brett Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of Cyren. "With most employees working from home, there has been an uptick in compromised email and phishing attempts, and increased demand for innovative solutions to combat these attacks. During the third quarter, we closed a number of new enterprise customers in the US and Europe, ranging from 3,000 to 20,000 users. It is clear to us that the phishing problem is widespread, the addressable market is large and Cyren Inbox Security has the potential to be a significant new enterprise revenue stream for our company."

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the third quarter of 2020 were $9.1 million, compared to $9.5 million during the third quarter of 2019. Revenue declined year-over-year as a result of the wind-down of retired legacy products, while recognition from new enterprise offerings introduced during Q2 have not yet had a material impact on quarterly results.
  • GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $4.9 million, compared to a net loss of $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2019. GAAP net loss includes lower R&D capitalization from prior quarters and a one-time adjustment for previously capitalized technology development totaling $0.7 million.
  • GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.08, compared to a loss of $0.06 per basic and diluted share for the third quarter of 2019.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $2.9 million, compared to a Non-GAAP net loss of $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2019.
  • Non-GAAP loss per basic and diluted share was $0.05 for the third quarter, compared to a Non-GAAP loss of $0.06 per share in Q3 2019.
  • Cash and cash equivalents balance as of September 30, 2020, was $12.9 million, compared to $11.6 million as of December 31, 2019.
  • Operating cash usage during the third quarter of 2020 was $3.6 million, compared to operating cash flow of usage $1.7 million during the third quarter of 2019.
  • Net cash flow for the third quarter of 2020 was negative $3.2 million, compared to negative $2.9 million during the third quarter of 2019.

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:

  • During the third quarter, Cyren continued to experience strong market reaction to its next generation email security product focused on the phishing problem for enterprise users of Microsoft 365. At the end of the third quarter, Cyren Inbox Security was protecting over 60,000 mailboxes and analyzing over 15 million suspicious emails on a weekly basis.
  • Also in the quarter, Cyren launched its incident response service which provides 24x7 expert support for phishing investigation and remediation. Cyren Incident Response Service is a complementary add-on service to Cyren Inbox Security that relieves the burden on IT and security teams from complicated and time consuming threat investigation and response.
  • Cyren's CIS and email security offerings attracted the attention of industry analysts and were highlighted as innovative cloud-based phishing solutions in Gartner's 2020 Market Guide for Email Security as well as Forrester's 'Now Tech' Report on enterprise email security providers.

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.
