ST. BERNARD SOFTWARE ANNOUNCES ITS FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE SECOND QUARTER ENDED JUNE 30, 2010
SAN DIEGO, CA, August 10, 2010 -- St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTC BB: SBSW.OB - News ), a leader in Web security appliances, today announced unaudited financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2010.
Second Quarter 2010 Financial Highlights:
Cash and cash equivalents increased to $2.6 million as of June 30, 2010 from $2.5 million as of December 31, 2009 and $1.1 million as of June 30, 2009
Generated positive cash flow of $167,000 for YTD 2010 compared to $1.0 million negative cash flow for the same period in 2009, an increase of 117%
Cash flow used by operating activities decreased $533,000 to $82,000, an improvement of 86.7%
Q2 2010 operating expenses remained relatively unchanged from Q2 2009
Net loss of $581,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared to a net loss of $685,000 for the same period in 2009
“Our second quarter met operational expectations and we are optimistic about the growth in new customer business that we saw compared to 2009”, said Lou Ryan, CEO of St. Bernard Software. “Additionally, we were able to prepare operationally for the integration of Red Condor that we announced last week. The integration along with the additional investment we received will help support our drive for greater growth in our core security markets.”
St. Bernard reported revenues of $4.3 million and $8.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared to revenues of $4.8 million and $9.2 million for the same periods in 2009; operating expenses of $3.6 million and $7.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively, compared to operating expenses of $3.6 million and $7.6 million for the same periods in 2009; and a net loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 of $432,000 and $581,000, respectively, compared to a net loss of $52,000 and $685,000 for the same periods in 2009.
The Company ended the second quarter of 2010 with cash and cash equivalents of $2.6 million compared to $2.5 million at December 31, 2009 and $1.1 million at June 30, 2009. Cash used by operations decreased $533,000 to $82,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010 compared to cash used by operations of $615,000 for the same period in 2009.
Sales and marketing expense consists primarily of salaries, related benefits, commissions, consultant fees, advertising, lead generation and other costs associated with our sales and marketing efforts. For the three months ended June 30, 2010 sales and marketing expense increased 6.8%, or approximately $108,000, over the same period in 2009.
Research and development expense consists primarily of salaries, related benefits, third-party consultant fees and other engineering related costs. Research and development expenses were $927,000 in Q2 2010, which is down from $979,000 in Q2 2009 resulting in a 5.3% decrease quarter over prior year quarter. The decrease was primarily the result of a net decrease in consulting costs. During 2009, after making the decision to move research and development in-house, the Company modified its consulting agreement with Softworks Group Pty Ltd. The transition from outside consulting to in-house occurred during the latter half of 2009 and into 2010, resulting in a significant decrease in consulting expenses. Management believes that significant investments in research and development is required to remain competitive, and as such, expects research and development expenses to increase in order to extend the core functionality and features within our products.
General and administrative expenses were $1.0 million and $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009, respectively, a $33,000 or 3.1%, decrease year over prior year. The decrease was primarily a result of the reduction in stock-based compensation expenses, offset by an increase to lease and rents expense. During 2009, we subleased approximately 30,000 square feet of our unused office space to a company. The proceeds from the sublease were used to offset our monthly facilities rent expense. The company’s current corporate facility lease expires at the end of 2010. On August 2, 2010, the Company entered into a lease agreement with Kilroy Realty, L.P. The lease commences January 1, 2011 with a term of sixty-five (65) months from the commencement date.
The Company has existing credit facilities with Silicon Valley Bank and Partners for Growth, LP (“PFG”), under which there was borrowing availability of $440,000 and $750,000, respectively, as of June 30, 2010. On July 20, 2010, the PFG note was paid off, and on August 3, 2010 the Company received proceeds of $3.0 million in connection with the issuance of subordinated convertible notes.
Mr. Ryan added, “In addition to strong current quarter sales and operational execution, we anticipate significant expense savings as we move into 2011 with our announced move to a new headquarters building in Q4, 2010. The move enables us to significantly improve our space which will create long term operational benefits. Moreover, the move also represents an annual cost savings of about $1 million which we will be able to reinvest in our growth strategy.”
