First quarter revenue of $21.2 million, a decrease of 5% year-over-year
GAAP operating loss of $17.3 million and non-GAAP operating loss of $13.3 million

Boston, MA and Tel Aviv, Israel – May 12, 2020 - Tufin (NYSE: TUFN), a company pioneering a policy-centric approach to security and IT operations, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

“We are operating in challenging times and our business was impacted late in the first quarter by disruptions related to COVID-19.” said Ruvi Kitov, CEO and co-founder of Tufin. “Given our perpetual license business model and the normal back-end loaded nature of our business, we typically close a large percentage of deals in the last two weeks of the quarter which coincided with an unprecedented wave of “stay at home” orders and inevitably some deals were delayed.”

“However, the vast majority of delayed deals remain in our pipeline which continues to show healthy growth year over year. Since the end of the first quarter, we have seen most customers re-engaging as they have adjusted to remote work. Customer spending plans are being re-prioritized and we’re seeing that, in many cases, Tufin’s products and services remain a priority as they help customers improve network security and do more with less through automation, both of which are vitally important today.”

“Despite those positive signs, a great deal of uncertainty remains in our market and we have lower visibility on the timing of pipeline conversion to closing business. As a result, we have taken necessary measures to adjust our business for the current environment through operational changes and cost reductions.”

“The global business disruption from COVID-19 remains significant, but the increased efficiency and security that our products deliver by automating manual, error-prone network change processes have only become more important. For that reason, I remain confident in the long-term opportunity ahead of us.”

Business Outlook

“As previously announced, we have withdrawn our prior financial guidance for the full year 2020 due to the uncertainty and reduced visibility around timing of closing transactions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Ruvi Kitov. “For that reason, we will not be providing second quarter or full year 2020 guidance at this time.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions that can impact a company’s non-cash expense, as well as certain non-recurring costs that are not representative or indicative of our ongoing operations, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash share-based compensation expense, one-time expenses associated with the reorganization of one of our subsidiaries and the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments, allows for more meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. These non-GAAP financial measures are an important tool for financial and operational decision-making and for evaluating our operating results over different periods: 

  • We define non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit excluding share-based compensation expense.
  • We define non-GAAP operating loss as operating loss excluding share-based compensation expense and one-time expenses associated with the reorganization of one of our subsidiaries.
  • We define non-GAAP net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation expense, one-time expenses associated with the reorganization of one of our subsidiaries and the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments.

Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness these non-GAAP financial measures for comparison. You should consider these non-GAAP financial measures along with other financial performance measures, including gross profit, operating loss and net loss, and our financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Tufin urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate its business.
