Cyan (NYSE: CYNI), a leading provider of SDN, NFV, and packet-optical solutions for network operators, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 exceeded prior guidance of $21 million to $23 million and reached $24.4 million. This compares to $19.0 million for the first quarter of 2014 and $31.7 million in the second quarter of 2013. GAAP net loss for the second quarter was $14.7 million, or $0.31 per share, compared to a net loss of $17.8 million, or $0.38 per share, in the first quarter of 2014 and $9.1 million, or $0.33 per share, in the same period last year.
On a non-GAAP basis, Cyan's net loss for the second quarter was $11.9 million, or $0.25 per share. This compares to a non-GAAP net loss of $15.3 million, or $0.33 per share, in the first quarter of 2014 and a non-GAAP net loss of $6.6 million, or $0.24 per share, in the same period last year. Both GAAP and non-GAAP net loss per share figures for the second quarter of 2014 are based on 46.9 million basic weighted average shares outstanding. Please refer to the attached financial statements for additional non-GAAP information and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results as well as information regarding weighted average shares outstanding in each period.
“In the second quarter we remained focused on our key initiatives, announced several new customer and partner collaborations and launched Planet Orchestrate, a significant new addition to our Blue Planet SDN and NFV platform,” said Mark Floyd, Cyan’s chairman and chief executive officer. “We are pleased with our execution this quarter and with the momentum we see in the market.
“Service providers continue to advance their initiatives to transform their networks with SDN and NFV technologies. With the Blue Planet Platform, we believe Cyan is well positioned in the market and has a unique, first mover advantage in helping customers orchestrate both network and virtualized resources across multi-domain, multi-vendor networks," continued Floyd.
Second Quarter Highlights
- Launched Planet Orchestrate – The industry’s first orchestration application that integrates Cloud Services, NFV, and WAN in multi-vendor and multi-domain networks. Unlike other siloed solutions on the market, Planet Orchestrate, an application for Cyan’s Blue Planet SDN Platform, combines the power of WAN service creation and automation with the orchestration of virtual resources – creating a software-defined engine for revenue generation in carrier networks.
- Certes, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, and Fortinet, a global leader in high-performance network security, joined Blue Orbit, an ecosystem of partners focused on delivering real-world, multi-vendor SDN and network functions virtualization (NFV) applications.
- With Blue Orbit partners Certes, Fortinet and RAD, Cyan demonstrated how Blue Planet can orchestrate multi-vendor distributed NFV in an official ETSI proof of concept (PoC) sponsored by Tier 1 service provider -- CenturyLink.
- Collaborated with Telefónica and Red Hat to develop a deterministic NFV architecture to support the intelligent placement of virtualized network functions (VNFs). Cyan is delivering the NFV orchestrator that will make use of OpenStack enhancements developed by Red Hat in close collaboration with Telefónica.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information
To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share. We use this information in managing our business and believe the non-GAAP data are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section of the accompanying tables titled, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation." Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. As noted in the accompanying reconciliation, non-GAAP results exclude the effects of stock-based compensation. We use stock-based compensation to attract and retain employees and executives with the goals of aligning their interests with those of our stockholders and long-term employee retention. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from our non-GAAP metrics because it varies for reasons that are generally unrelated to operational decisions and performance in any particular period. In addition, non-GAAP results exclude the effects of preferred stock warrants that were converted in connection with our initial public offering. Upon completion of our initial public offering, our preferred stock warrants were converted to common stock and common stock warrants, and we no longer incur expenses associated with the preferred stock warrants. We have excluded these expenses from our non-GAAP metrics given that they fluctuated based on our valuation as a private company prior to going public and were discontinued upon completion of our IPO.
