CYREN Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2015 Results

Feb 17, 2016, 06:10 ET from CYREN

MCLEAN, Va., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced its fourth quarter and full year 2015 financial results for the period ending December 31, 2015.

"During the fourth quarter we continued to make very strong progress toward becoming the industry's leading cloud-based Internet security company. We recently announced CYREN WebSecurity™ 3.0, which adds zero-day cyberthreat protection leveraging unique multi-sandbox array technology and big data analytics to correlate threats across 17 billion daily Internet transactions. Customer acquisition for CYREN WebSecurity continues at an impressive pace, and we have stabilized and added to our embedded business by expanding our relationship with our largest customers," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN.

"We are investing in sales, marketing, and R&D in order to scale the business to support the growing demand for CYREN WebSecurity and our cloud platform.  As prospective customers become more aware of the dangers of zero-day threats, we believe CYREN WebSecurity will become the go-to tool for protecting all of their users, anywhere, on any device."

Fourth Quarter & Full Year 2015 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the fourth quarter were $7.1 million, compared to $6.9 million for the third quarter and $7.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Revenues for the full year were $27.8 million, compared to $31.9 million in 2014.   A shift in foreign exchange rates year-over-year negatively impacted revenues reported for the full year 2015 by approximately $2.2 million.
  • Non-GAAP revenues totaled $7.2 million for the fourth quarter, compared to $7.0 million for the third quarter and $7.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP revenues for the full year were $27.9 million, compared to $32.1 million in 2014. The difference between non-GAAP and GAAP revenues 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 fourth quarter was $1.2 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.3 million for the third quarter and a loss of $2.2 million, or $0.07 per basic and diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014. GAAP net loss for the full year was $4.8 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share compared to a loss of $7.0 million, or $0.25 in 2014.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.3 million for the third quarter and a loss of $1.4 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP net loss for the full year was $4.9 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share compared to a loss of $4.5 million, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share in 2014.
  • Cash used in operating activities during the fourth quarter was $0.6 million, compared to cash generated by operating activities of $0.6 million during the third quarter and operating cash usage of $1.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2014. Cash used in operating activities for the full year was $1.8 million, compared to $3.7 million in 2014.
  • Cash as of December 31, 2015 was $16.4 million, compared to $18.7 million as of September 30, 2015 and $11.1 million at the end of 2014.

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:

  • Signed several CWS contracts in the fourth quarter including Sea-Mar, a manager of community health centers in Washington state, and Sun Communities, a real estate investment trust that owns, operates and manages manufactured housing communities in the United States.
  • Renewed and expanded several significant contracts in the embedded OEM business, including CheckPoint and Google, which are both long-term customers.
  • Added several new customers to use CYREN's cyber intelligence suite, including malware attack detection and phishing feed services. During the second half of 2015, the Company has experienced a resurgence of interest from customers who need increased protection from email-borne malware and zero day attacks.
  • Hired 10 new employees to the sales and marketing organization, and increased the number of salespeople focused on CWS. Key new hires include seasoned executives from security companies such as Radware and Zscaler.
  • Recently introduced CWS 3.0, which integrates CYREN's enhanced cyber threat capabilities that have been under development for over two years. Key feature enhancements include a new Advanced Threat Protection module to stop zero-day threats, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and evasive malware.

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 settlement agreements, reorganization expenses, 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.

Forward-Looking Statements

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 and reports on Form 6-K, which are available through www.sec.gov.
