Cyren Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2021 Financial Results


McLean, VA, 03/24/2022 / 16:03, EST/EDT - EQS Newswire - Cyren Ltd


Enterprise Anti-Phishing ARR Grows 87% Year-over-Year

MCLEAN, VA / ACCESSWIRE / March 24, 2022 / Cyren (NASDAQ:CYRN) today announced its fourth quarter and full year 2021 financial results for the period ending December 31, 2021.

During the fourth quarter of 2021, Cyren reported quarterly revenues of $7.4 million, compared to $8.4 million during the fourth quarter of 2020. For the full year ended 2021, revenues were $31.2 million compared to $36.4 million in the prior year.

"While overall revenues declined year-over-year, this was within our legacy business and previously reported. The key highlight of 2021 was the strong growth from our anti-phishing product, Cyren Inbox Security", said Brett Jackson, CEO of Cyren. "2021 was our first full year in-market and ARR from this product grew 87% year-over-year, driven by our differentiated and compelling value proposition, providing both automated detection and response with simple deployment and integration with security awareness training solutions. Phishing, business email compromise and ransomware threats continue to be serious problems for organizations of all sizes across multiple industries and customers are looking for a more effective solution than traditional defenses. We will continue to invest and pursue this large market opportunity and develop this high-growth revenue stream that we believe will ultimately provide material contribution to our results."

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.
