Total Revenues of $17.5 Million, Up 39% Year-Over-Year; License Revenues of $8.1 million, Up 37% Year-Over-Year

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Varonis Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNS), the leading provider of software solutions for unstructured, human-generated enterprise data, today announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

Yaki Faitelson, Varonis CEO, said, "I am very pleased with the Company's strong first quarter financial performance. We continue to achieve meaningful growth across both new and existing customers, driven by the investments we have made to expand our sales teams as well as broaden our product offerings to address an ever-growing set of use cases. Organizations of all sizes are seeing rapid growth in the volume of human-generated data, which are typically the most valuable and sensitive files a company has. The growth of this data carries big opportunities as well as serious threats, and our solutions enable companies to realize value from their human-generated data, manage it efficiently and protect it effectively."

Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2014
Revenues:

  • Total revenues were $17.5 million, up 39% compared with the first quarter of 2013.
  • License revenues were $8.1 million, up 37% compared with the first quarter of 2013.
  • Maintenance and services revenues were $9.4 million, up 40% compared with the year-ago period.

Operating Loss

  • GAAP operating loss was ($7.9) million for the quarter, compared to ($4.0) million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • Non-GAAP operating loss was ($7.3) million for the quarter, compared to ($3.8) million in the first quarter of 2013.

Net Loss

  • GAAP net loss was ($8.1) million, compared to a net loss of ($4.8) million in the first quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP loss per share was ($0.73), compared to a loss per share of ($1.24) in the first quarter of 2013, based on 11.1 million and 3.9 million basic shares outstanding, respectively.
  • Non-GAAP net loss was ($7.4) million, compared to a net loss of ($4.2) million in the first quarter of 2013.

In our non-GAAP Q1 2014 earnings per share, the Company calculated shares of common stock outstanding after accounting for the automatic conversion of Varonis' then outstanding shares of convertible preferred stock into 15.1 million shares of common stock and the issuance of 5.3 million shares of common stock in our initial public offering as though such events had occurred at the beginning of the period. In the same calculation for Q1 2013, the Company accounted for the automatic conversion of Varonis' then outstanding shares of convertible preferred stock into 14.9 million shares of common stock at the beginning of the period.

The tables at the end of this press release include a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP loss from operations and net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

  • During the three months ended March 31, 2014, the Company generated $4.3 million in cash flow from operations compared to $3.3 million generated during the first three months of 2013.

Financial Outlook

For the second quarter of 2014, Varonis expects revenues in the range of $22.9 million to $23.4 million.

Expectations of non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP loss per basic share exclude stock-based compensation expense.

For the full-year 2014, Varonis expects revenues in the range of $96.5 to $98.0 million. The Company anticipates full year 2014 non-GAAP operating loss of ($14.3) million to ($13.3) million, and non-GAAP loss per basic share in the range of ($0.63) to ($0.57), based on a tax provision of $0.7 million to $1.0 million dollars and 24.4 million basic shares outstanding. Expectations of non-GAAP loss from operations and non-GAAP loss per basic share exclude stock-based compensation expense.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Varonis believes that the use of non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss is helpful to our investors. These measures, which the Company refers to as our non-GAAP financial measures, are not prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP operating loss is calculated as operating loss excluding stock-based compensation expense.

For the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP net loss is calculated as net loss excluding (i) stock-based compensation expense and (ii) financial expenses resulting from the revaluation of warrants to purchase convertible preferred stock.

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company's non-cash expense, the Company believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expense allow for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. In addition, the Company believes that excluding financial expenses with respect to revaluation of warrants to purchase convertible preferred stock allows for more meaningful comparison between our net loss from period to period, especially since upon the closing of the IPO, the warrants automatically converted into warrants to purchase our common stock, and as a result, are no longer evaluated at each balance sheet date. Each of our non-GAAP financial measures is an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating our own operating results over different periods of time. The non-GAAP financial data are not measures of our financial performance under U.S. GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to operating loss or net loss or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently, particularly related to non-recurring, unusual items. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. Further, stock-based compensation expense has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in our business and an important part of the compensation provided to our employees. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Varonis urges investors to review the reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measures to evaluate our business.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Ar...
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from ha...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
