Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


IronNet, Inc. (hereinafter “IronNet”, “we”, “us”, “our”, or “the Company”), through IronNet Cybersecurity, Inc. (“Legacy IronNet”) and its subsidiaries (collectively “Combined Company”), provides a suite of technologies that provide real-time threat assessment and updates, behavioral modeling, big data analytics, and proactive threat detection and response capabilities as well as consulting services and training programs to protect against current and emerging cyber-threats.


The Company, whose securities are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), serves as the holding company for the businesses of Legacy IronNet and its subsidiaries. Its headquarters are located in McLean, VA. Legacy IronNet was incorporated in the state of Delaware on April 30, 2019.


Merger Agreement

On August 26, 2021, LGL Systems Acquisition Corp. ("Legacy LGL”), through its subsidiary LGL Systems Merger Sub Inc. (“Merger Sub”) and Legacy IronNet, all of them Delaware corporations, consummated the closing of the transactions contemplated by the Merger Agreement, dated March 15, 2021 and as amended August 6, 2021, by and among Legacy IronNet, Legacy LGL, and Merger Sub, following their approval at a special meeting of the stockholders of Legacy LGL held on August 26, 2021 (the “Merger”).

Pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, a merger of Legacy IronNet and Legacy LGL was effected by the merger of Merger Sub with and into Legacy IronNet, with Legacy IronNet surviving the Merger as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Legacy LGL. Following the consummation of the Merger, Legacy LGL changed its name from LGL Systems Acquisition Corp. to IronNet, Inc. on the closing date.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the Merger, (i) each outstanding share of Legacy IronNet common stock and preferred stock (with each share of Legacy IronNet preferred stock being treated as if it were converted into ten (10) shares of Legacy IronNet common stock on the effective date of the Merger) was converted into the right to receive (a) a number of shares of Company common stock equal to the Exchange Ratio (as defined below) and (b) a cash amount payable in respect of fractional shares of Legacy IronNet common stock that would otherwise be issued in connection with the foregoing conversion, if applicable, and (ii) each Legacy IronNet option, restricted stock unit, restricted stock award that was outstanding immediately prior to the closing of the Merger (and by its terms did not terminate upon the closing of the Merger) remains outstanding and (x) in the case of options, represents the right to purchase a number of shares of Company common stock equal to the number of shares of Legacy IronNet common stock subject to such option multiplied by the Exchange Ratio used for Legacy IronNet common stock (rounded down to the nearest whole share) at an exercise price per share equal to the current exercise price per share for such option divided by the Exchange Ratio (rounded up to the nearest whole cent) and (y) in the case of restricted stock units and restricted stock awards, represent a number of shares of Company common stock equal to the number of shares of Legacy IronNet common stock subject to such restricted stock unit or restricted stock award multiplied by the Exchange Ratio (rounded down to the nearest whole share). In addition, Legacy IronNet stockholders and eligible holders of options, restricted stock unit awards and restricted stock awards (as applicable, only to the extent time vested as of the closing of the Merger) were also eligible to receive additional merger consideration in the form of a pro rata portion of 1,078 shares of Company common stock if the volume weighted average closing share price for the Company’s common stock equaled or exceeded $13.00 for ten (10) consecutive days during the two-year period following the closing of the Merger. This condition was satisfied and the additional shares of Company common stock were issued in September 2021.

The Exchange Ratio was 0.8141070 of a share of Company common stock per fully-diluted share of Legacy IronNet common stock.

On August 26, 2021, the Company received $13,251 held in Legacy LGL’s trust account net of redemptions. Transaction costs related to the issuance of the trust shares were $9,038.

In connection with the execution of the Merger Agreement, a number of purchasers (each, a “Subscriber”) purchased from the Company an aggregate of 12,500,000 shares of Company common stock (the “PIPE Shares”), for a purchase price of $10.00 per share and an aggregate purchase price of $125,000, pursuant to separate subscription agreements entered into effective as of March 15, 2021. Transaction costs related with the issuance were $21,180.


Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial reporting. The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated upon consolidation.

The Merger was accounted for as a reverse recapitalization in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 805, Business Combination.

As a result of Legacy IronNet being the accounting acquirer in the Merger, the financial reports filed with the SEC by the Company subsequent to the Merger are prepared as if Legacy IronNet is the accounting predecessor of the Company. The historical operations of Legacy IronNet are deemed to be those of the Company. Thus, the financial statements included in this Amendment No 1. reflect (i) the historical operating results of Legacy IronNet prior to the Merger; (ii) the consolidated results of the Company, following the Merger on August 26, 2021; (iii) the assets and liabilities of Legacy IronNet at their historical cost; and (iv) the Company’s equity structure for all periods presented. The recapitalization of the number of shares of common stock is reflected retroactively to the earliest period presented and will be utilized for calculating loss per share in all prior periods presented.

These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated financial statements of Legacy IronNet, Inc. and accompanying notes thereto for the year ended January 31, 2021. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements.

The Company’s fiscal year ends on January 31. References to fiscal 2022, for example, refer to the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022.


The results of operations for the nine and three months ended October 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results that may be expected for the full fiscal year ending January 31, 2022 or any future period.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, except for the adjustments described as part of the Merger discussed in Note 3, necessary for a fair statement of the Company’s financial position as of October 31, 2021, its results of operations for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020, and cash flows for the nine months ended October 31, 2021 and 2020.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements. Such estimates also affect the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from estimates under different assumptions or conditions.


The Company recognized Public Warrants in equity at fair value as of the effective date of the Merger and recognized $15,740 in additional paid in capital.


The Company accounts for the 8,606,473 warrants (comprised of 8,596,273 Public Warrants and 10,200 Private Warrants) in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 815-40-15-7D.

The Private Warrants do not meet the criteria for equity classification and they are recorded as liabilities. Accordingly, the Company classifies the warrant instruments as liabilities at their fair value and adjusts the instrument to fair value at each reporting period. These liabilities are subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until exercised, and any change in fair value is recognized in the Company’s condensed consolidated statement of operations. The fair value of the Private Warrants has been determined based on a Monte Carlo model.

In connection with the Merger, the Public Warrants were recorded within equity at a fair value of $15,740. The Public Warrants meet the criteria for equity classification and are recorded within Stockholders’ Equity. Accordingly, Public Warrants are initially measured at fair value and are not subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date unless, in subsequent periods the Public Warrants no longer qualify for equity classification. The fair value of the Public Warrants issued by the Company has been determined using the quoted price.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements not Yet Adopted

The FASB issued ASU No.2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), which supersedes the current lease requirements in ASC 840, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize a right-of-use asset and related lease liability for all leases, with a limited exception for short-term leases. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with the classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of operations. Currently, leases are classified as either capital or operating, with any capital leases recognized on the consolidated balance sheets. The reporting of lease-related expenses in the consolidated statements of operations and cash flows will be generally consistent with the current guidance. The new lease guidance will be effective the earlier of the year ending January 31, 2023 or the time at which we no longer qualify as an EGC (“Emerging Growth Company”) and will be applied using a modified retrospective transition method to either the beginning of the earliest period presented or the beginning of the year of adoption. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting the new standard. The adoption of this standard will require the recognition of a right of use asset and liability on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU2016-13, Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments (Topic 326). This standard requires a new method for recognizing credit losses that is referred to as the current expected credit loss (“CECL”) method. The CECL method requires the recognition of all losses expected over the life of a financial instrument upon origination or purchase of the instrument, unless the Company elects to recognize such instruments at fair value with changes in profit and loss (the fair value option). This standard is effective for the Company for the earlier of the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022 or the time at which we no longer qualify as an EGC. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of this guidance on its financial statements.

New Accounting Pronouncement Adopted in Fiscal 2022

In December 2019, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2019-12, Income Taxes (Topic740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which modifies and eliminates certain exceptions to the general principles of ASC 740, Income Taxes. ASU 2019-12 was adopted in the first quarter of fiscal 2022. The prospective adoption of ASU 2019-12 was not material.

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-15, Intangibles—Goodwill and of Other—Internal-Use Software (Subtopic 350-40): Customer’s Accounting for Implementation Costs Incurred in a Cloud Computing Arrangement That Is a Service Contract. ASU 2018-15 was adopted in the third quarter of fiscal 2022. The prospective adoption of ASU 2018-15 was not material.


Segment and Geographic Information

Segments are defined as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker (“CODM”), in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance. The CODM reviews financial information presented on a consolidated basis for the purposes of allocating resources and evaluating financial performance. Accordingly, management has determined that the Company operates as one operating segment.
