Launched Hybrid Cloud Data Protection Sales with IBM and Continued Managed Service Provider (“MSP”) Adoption

  • Secured first group of customers for new joint IBM/FalconStor solutions, enabling hybrid cloud data migration, backup, and restoration services for IBM Power Virtual Server Cloud (“IBM Power VS Cloud”)
  • Added three new MSP partners for the StorSafe secure backup-as-a-service solution while existing MSP partners expanded their business to protect new customers and systems, aligning with the FalconStor hybrid cloud focus
  • Continued shift to subscription- and monthly-consumption based annual recurring revenue (“ARR”) model

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#IBM--FalconStor Software, Inc. (OTCQB: FALC), a trusted data protection leader modernizing disaster recovery and backup for the hybrid cloud world, today announced financial results for its second quarter 2022, which ended on June 30, 2022.

“Our shift to recurring revenue-based hybrid cloud data protection solutions continued to progress in the quarter as we secured our first several hybrid cloud customers under the IBM reseller relationship we announced on May 11, 2022,” said Todd Brooks, FalconStor CEO. “IBM’s hybrid cloud push has been a centerpiece of its corporate strategy, as highlighted in its first and second quarter 2022 results. Through our expanding relationship with IBM, enterprises can now leverage new joint hybrid cloud solutions from FalconStor and IBM. These solutions are especially important to the tens of thousands of companies around the globe that leverage IBM i and AIX environments, as they now have the ability to securely backup and restore to the cloud, as well as migrate their IBM i and AIX workloads to IBM Power VS Cloud with secure backup and recovery on an on-going basis.”

“Our aggressive focus on advancing critical hybrid cloud relationships and our efforts to realign to a subscription- and monthly consumption-based recurring revenue model continue to challenge our year-over-year revenue growth as second quarter revenue was $2.4 million, compared to $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2021. However, from a sequential quarter perspective, total revenue increased to $2.4 million, compared to $2.0 million in the first quarter of 2022,” stated Brooks. “To more closely align with our current quarterly revenue level, we decreased operating expenses quarter-over-quarter by 8.8% in second quarter, and are making additional expense adjustments this quarter. Our sales pipeline for the second half of 2022 is growing, especially as it relates to our hybrid cloud initiatives. As a result, we expect sequential quarter-over-quarter revenue to continue growing over the next two quarters.”

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

  • Annual Recurring Revenue: 4% year-over-year growth
  • Ending Cash: $1.8 million, compared to $3.4 million in the previous quarter, and $3.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021
  • Total Revenue: $2.4 million, compared to $2.0 million in the previous quarter, and $3.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021
  • Total Cost of Revenue: $0.4 million, compared to $0.4 million in the previous quarter, and $0.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021
  • Total Operating Expenses: $2.5 million, compared to $2.7 million in the previous quarter, and $3.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021
  • GAAP Net Income (Loss): $(0.9) million, compared to $(1.1) million in the previous quarter, and $(0.4) million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2021


Given Q1 and Q2 2022 results, we are reducing full-year 2022 guidance as follows. Revised guidance reflects continued sequential quarterly GAAP total revenue growth, and GAAP Net Income positive results in Q3 and Q4 2022:
