Tel Aviv, Israel, Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alarum Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq, TASE: ALAR) (“Alarum” or the “Company” – formerly known as Safe-T Group Ltd.), a global provider of cybersecurity and privacy solutions to consumers and enterprises, today provided preliminary revenue and cash balance guidance for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022.
Based upon a preliminary, unaudited review, Alarum expects to report revenues for the full year ended December 31, 2022, of more than $18.5 million, compared to revenues of $10.3 million reported in the full year ended December 31, 2021, representing growth of approximately 80%. Revenue growth continues to be driven by the Company’s ongoing investment in its leading privacy products. Revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2022, were approximately $5 million, an increase of approximately 35% compared to $3.7 million reported for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2021.
The Company’s preliminary cash and cash equivalents balance as of December 31, 2022, aggregated to approximately $3.4 million. This balance does not reflect a potential of up to additional $2.7 million in funds that may be made available pursuant to the secured credit facility and investment financing entered into by the Company during 2022.
Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Alarum, stated, "We are pleased to have made these achievements during 2022 with growth of 80% year-over-year, and the eighth consecutive quarter of record revenues."
"An additional milestone we accomplished this year was turning our subsidiary, NetNut Ltd., to a profitable company, while accelerating its revenue growth. The Company’s overall burn rate was significantly reduced in the third and fourth quarters of 2022, and we expect this trend to continue in 2023," Mr. Daniel added.
Alarum expects to release the fully reviewed and audited financial statements on or before March 31, 2023.
