  • Operating expense reduction efforts resulted in a 33% decrease in net loss in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter of 2022 (25% on a non-IFRS basis). Ongoing expense reduction efforts are expected to drive improved operational results in the third quarter of 2022.
  • The company’s privacy enterprises business reached break-even operating results (excluding recently eliminated legal expenses).

“The financial results of the first half of 2022 reflect how effectively we continued to execute our strategy with diversified businesses into the large cybersecurity and privacy markets. We continue to drive significant and sustainable revenue growth while efficiently executing ongoing cost reduction efforts. During May and August, we secured a $2 million non-dilutive credit line facility from a leading Israeli bank and strategic financing of up to $4 million, which may lead to potential future funding at premium valuations for the company. Supporting our current level of growth requires investment in our consumer products and acquiring new customers. We are extremely proud to have secured additional funding through creative financing initiatives that support the company’s growth well into 2023 without impacting our shareholders at current market valuations. We believe these achievements are a strong validation of our business model and the long-term potential of Safe-T,” said Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Safe-T.

Second Quarter 2022 Highlights and Recent Business Developments:

  • Strong Continued Growth: Safe-T delivered year-over-year solid financial performance, primarily driven by growth in the company’s consumer and enterprise privacy businesses.
  • Cost Reduction: Ongoing cost reductions implemented across the business last quarter and the final settlement of patent litigation related to the company’s enterprise privacy business will contribute significantly to reduced general and administration costs throughout the remainder of 2022.
  • Financing Initiatives: In the second quarter, the company secured a $2 million non-dilutive credit line facility from United Mizrahi-Tefahot Bank Ltd. to support the growth of its consumer privacy solution. In August, Safe-T secured a strategic investment of up to $4 million which will also be utilized to bolster its operations and growth. Led by a former CEO of the company’s enterprise privacy business subsidiary, this investment features a unique structure to protect shareholders from near-term dilution. It is based on a revenue share model for newly acquired customers. The investor is also incentivized to provide additional funding through warrants exercisable at premiums ranging from 135% to 300% of the closing share price at the date of the agreement. The cash available under these financing initiatives, aggregating up to more than $5 million, is in addition to the $4.04 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2022.
  • Product Development and Offering: In July, the company introduced two new products as it further penetrates the global consumer market. Safe-T launched its privacy solution for Windows, allowing it to enter the large desktop computer market with its first product, and introduced its privacy solution for Android mobile devices. With these launches, Safe-T can now serve customers across all major hardware platforms, including mobile devices running Apple iOS, Android, and personal computers.

“Our strong first half results reinforce our confidence in the prospects and outlook for our business, as our growth strategy continues to build momentum. In the second half of 2022, our team’s focus will be on further building upon the strength of our cybersecurity and privacy business by leveraging the recent funding and our new products to drive additional growth. Over the past four quarters, our Apple iOS offerings have driven continuous record growth. Through the strategic expansion of our consumer portfolio with new solutions for the large, untapped desktop computer and Android markets, Safe-T is now positioned to capitalize on exciting new revenue opportunities. We remain firmly focused on our cost reduction plan, improving the efficiency of the business, and together with our new products and investments into our customer acquisition program, we expect to not only drive significant additional revenue growth but deliver improved financial performance in the months ahead,” concluded Mr. Daniel.
