MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CYREN Ltd. (NASDAQ: CYRN), a global provider of cloud-based security solutions, today announced its second quarter 2014 financial results for the period ending June 30, 2014.

CYREN Logo

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) totaled $8.3 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $8.1 million for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP revenues totaled $8.3 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $8.1 million for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and $8.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. The difference between non-GAAP and GAAP revenue is derived from the fact that deferred revenues consolidated from acquired companies are accounted under GAAP based on fair value.
  • GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $2.0 million compared to net loss of $2.1 million for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and a net loss of $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2014 was $0.08, compared to a loss of $0.08 for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and a loss of $0.03 in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter 2014 was $1.1 million compared to non-GAAP net loss of $1.4 million for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and non-GAAP net income of $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2013. 
  • Non-GAAP loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter 2014 was $0.04, compared to non-GAAP loss of $0.05 for the sequential first quarter of 2014 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.00 in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Cash provided by operating activities during the quarter was $0.3 million.
  • Cash as of June 30, 2014 was $3.1 million, compared to $2.3 million as of March 31, 2014. In addition, the company had drawn $5.3 million under its $7.5 million credit facility.  
  • Subsequent to quarter end, CYREN completed a registered direct offering of ordinary shares and warrants. The offering resulted in gross proceeds of $11.5 million, excluding placement agent fees and offering fees and excluding any proceeds to be received upon exercise of the warrants.

"We are very pleased with our continued progress in ramping our recently introduced cloud-based CYREN WebSecurity offering. During the second quarter we expanded our global distribution partners, signed our first end users and began to recognize initial revenue," said Lior Samuelson, CEO and Chairman of the Board at CYREN.

"More recently, we strengthened our balance sheet with the successful completion of our registered direct offering," Samuelson added. "Proceeds from the offering combined with healthy demand trends in our profitable core detection business provide a solid foundation to support our growth strategy."

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."

    • Komtera, a value added IT distributor based in Istanbul, Turkey, signed a distribution agreement in June 2014. Serving more than 300 resellers with more than 7,000 end-user organizations countrywide, Komtera is an exciting partner for CYREN WebSecurity and its entry into Turkey. Komtera is also set to offer the cloud-based CYREN EmailSecurity solution later this year.
    • NexTek, an IT services and solutions company based in Mumbai, India announced a multi-year national distribution agreement in May. More than 30 NexTek reseller partners are expected to offer CYREN solutions to their end users. To assist in servicing the NexTek partnership and CYREN's continuing embedded business in the region, CYREN opened its first data center in India in June 2014.

Business Outlook        

Based on current expectations, the company is reiterating its financial outlook for the full year 2014.  CYREN anticipates that its core embedded business will be maintained, with flat to low single digit revenue growth during 2014 and that its recently launched CYREN WebSecurity offering will be incremental to this growth. The company plans to continue to invest the cash flow from its core business to accelerate the development and rollout of its cloud strategy.

The above outlook is as of the date of this release, and the company undertakes no obligation to update its estimates in the future.

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, onetime 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.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Companies can harness IoT and predictive analytics to sustain business continuity; predict and manage site performance during emergencies; minimize expensive reactive maintenance; and forecast equipment and maintenance budgets and expenditures.
