IronNet Reports Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Announces Management Changes

Initiates Restructuring of the Company to Include Approximately 35% Further Headcount Reduction

Secures Convertible Debt Initial Commitment of $10 Million

McLean, VA (September 14, 2022) – IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT) (“IronNet”), a leading provider of solutions Transforming Cybersecurity Through Collective DefenseSM, announced today its financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended July 31, 2022.

“We encountered unexpected headwinds in our transactional business this quarter. To contain costs, we are undertaking a further restructuring of the company with the support of our new CFO Cameron Pforr,” said General (Ret.) Keith Alexander, Chairman and co-CEO of IronNet. “We have decided to forego a call with management this quarter, until we are better able to communicate on our progress.”

Fiscal Second Quarter 2023 Financial & Operating Results



Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR): $26.5 million at July 31, 2022, compared to $24.1 million at the end of the same quarter last year.



Revenue: $6.6 million compared to $6.1 million in the same quarter last year. Cloud subscription revenue was $5.0 million, or 81% of product revenue, compared to 55% in the same quarter last year.



Gross Margin: 62.3% compared to 70.1% in the same quarter last year.



Net loss: $28.4 million compared to $17.2 million in the same quarter last year. Excluding stock-based compensation expense and transaction costs and fees, net loss for the second quarter would be $20.6 million compared to $17.0 million in the same quarter last year.



Dollar-based average contract length: 3.2 years for the second quarter, compared to 2.8 years in the same quarter last year.



Cash and cash equivalents: $9.7 million at end of the second quarter. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company entered into an unsecured convertible debt facility with an institutional investor pursuant to which it will borrow an initial $10 million under a promissory note with an 18-month term and a 5% annual interest rate. Upon the satisfaction of certain conditions set forth in the convertible debt facility, including conditions related to the outstanding principal balance and the prevailing share price and trading volume of the company’s common stock, the company may have the ability to borrow an additional $15 million under the facility at a future date.


Customer Count: 78 compared to 51 at the end of the same quarter last year.

Management Update



Co-CEO William Welch will resign as co-CEO and from the Board of Directors in light of the restructuring of the business, and indicated he will continue to support the company in the short term. Chris Murphy, Head of Sales Operations, will lead the sales team in the interim, reporting to GEN (Ret.) Keith Alexander.



Experienced software and cybersecurity executive Cameron Pforr has been appointed as IronNet’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), replacing current CFO James Gerber who will be departing the company to join a private cybersecurity company.

Mr. Welch commented regarding his resignation: “With costs in focus, we determined that it made sense to eliminate the co-CEO position. I am a true believer in Collective Defense, and I remain firmly committed to the IronNet mission. I will continue to support the company in any way I can be of service.”

Fiscal 2023 Outlook



In light of the management transitions, further restructuring of the company, and the underperformance of the transactional business this quarter, the company is withdrawing its previously issued revenue and ARR guidance for fiscal 2023.

Certain Definitions

Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) — Calculated at a particular measurement date as the annualized value of our then existing customer subscription contracts and the portions of other software and product contracts that are to be recognized over the course of the contracts and that are designed to renew, assuming any contract that expires during the 12 months following the measurement date is renewed on its existing terms.

Dollar-based average contract length: Calculated by multiplying the average total length of our customer contracts, measured in years or fractions thereof, by the respective revenue recognized for the last three months of each reporting period, and then dividing by the revenue attributable to software and product customers for the same three-month period used in the numerator. Because many of our customers have similar buying patterns and the average term of our contracts is more than 12 months, this metric provides a means of assessing the degree of built-in revenue repetition that exists across our customer base. Declines in average contract length are not reflective of the average lifetime of a customer.
