Third Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Revenue growth of 10% YoY to $38.2 million

  • Operating profit on a non-GAAP basis of $0.3 million compared to a loss of $1 million in Q3 2020

  • Net loss on a non-GAAP basis reduced by 86% YoY to $0.2 million

  • Signed Security as a Service deal with DISH in the US to deliver cybersecurity to their 5G customers

Financial Outlook

Management expects 2021 revenues to be between $145- 146 million and continues to expect to sign recurring security deals to be closed in 2021 with an MAR* of at least $180 million.

Management expectations of Security as a Service (SECaaS) revenues have been delayed due to delays in service launches.  Formerly forecasted SECaaS revenues levels are expected to be reached with a delay of approximately two quarters. Considering the above, management is providing the following updates to the SECaaS revenue guidance:

  • For 2021, SECaaS revenues are expected to be between $4.1-4.3 million.

  • SECaaS revenues in 2022 are expected to be between $10-15 million.

  • SECaaS revenues for the 12 months between July 2022 and June 2023 are expected to be between $20 - $30 million.

  • ARR* in December of 2021 is expected to be between $5–6 million and in December 2022 between $20–30 million. ARR measures the current annual run rate of the SECaaS revenues, which is calculated based on these expected revenues in the current month of December and multiplied by 12.

Management Comment

Erez Antebi, President & CEO of Allot, commented : "In the third quarter of 2021, we continued to execute on our plan and grow. This is our 15 [th] straight quarter of year over year growth, and I am very pleased with the results we achieved. Our DPI business is showing solid results as we continue to sign up new customers and grow our market share. In our cybersecurity business, we are executing on our strategy to revolutionize consumer cybersecurity, by enabling CSPs to offer consumer cybersecurity as a network service. To date, we have signed Security as a Service (SECaaS) deals with 18 different operators globally. This is a testimony that our service is proving to be highly in demand by both mobile and fixed operators throughout the world."

Continued Mr. Antebi, "In North America we are seeing very strong traction. As announced earlier this year, DISH Network Corporation /zigman2/quotes/207505872/composite DISH -1.16% selected Allot to provide end-to-end User Plane Protection (UPP) and Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) services for the company's cloud-native 5G network, and has since expanded the partnership to include cybersecurity services for DISH customers.  This deal is in addition to previously announced Security as a Service wins with mobile and fixed line operators in EMEA and APAC."

"Looking at the Security as a Service network-based cybersecurity market, I am very encouraged by what we see: our pipeline is growing and we are seeing more operator interest than ever; adoption rates of operators that launched the service with the right go-to-market are high; and the North American market is very interested in delivering consumers network-based security.  By our count, Allot is winning most of the "network-based Security as a Service" deals.  Our high win ratio is, in our opinion, because of our high value product, commercial model, marketing support and track record.  I firmly believe our strategic and financial goals with this significant growth engine are very tangible and I am confident that despite the lengthened launch process, we will meet them."

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

Non-GAAP net income is defined as GAAP net income after excluding stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, deferred tax asset adjustment, exchange rate differences related to revaluation of assets and liabilities denominated in non-dollar currencies and other acquisition-related expenses.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the accompanying Table 2. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating performance.
