November 10, 2021 GMT

MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 10, 2021--

Appgate, Inc. (OTC: APGT) (“Appgate” or the “Company”), the secure access company, today announced financial and operational results for the third quarter 2021. Appgate’s full financial results will be filed on Form 8-K/A with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) after market close as an amendment to Appgate’s previously filed Form 8-K in connection with the closing of the merger with Newtown Lane Marketing, Incorporated (“Newtown”) filed on October 15, 2021. Appgate intends to seek to uplist to Nasdaq or the New York Stock Exchange as soon as possible following satisfaction of applicable listing requirements, which is expected to occur during the first half of 2022.

“We are thrilled to be joining the public markets during an exciting time for Appgate as customers continue to modernize their security stack with Appgate’s portfolio of solutions,” said Barry Field, CEO of Appgate. “Appgate continues to deliver impressive growth and is well positioned to sustain this trajectory as organizations invest aggressively to embrace the new paradigm of security principles based on Zero Trust.”

Key Business Metrics

Annual recurring revenue (“ARR”) is defined as the annualized value of active software-as-a-service (“SaaS”), subscription, and term-based license and maintenance contracts from Appgate’s recurring software products in effect at the end of a given period.

Appgate calculates dollar-based net retention rate by dividing the numerator by the denominator as set forth below:

  • Denominator: As of the end of a reporting period, ARR from all active subscriptions as of the last day of the same reporting period in the prior year.
  • Numerator: ARR for that same cohort of customers as of the end of the reporting period in the current year, including any expansion and net of contraction and customer attrition over the trailing 12 months, excluding ARR from new subscription customers in the current period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to Appgate’s results determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), Appgate believes the following non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating Appgate’s operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A reconciliation is provided below for each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable financial measure determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin are supplemental measures of operating performance that are not determined in accordance with GAAP and do not represent, and should not be considered as, an alternative to gross profit and gross margin, the most directly comparable financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Appgate defines non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit, adjusted to add back non-cash equity-based compensation expense and developed technology amortization expense and defines non-GAAP gross margin as non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of revenue.

Appgate uses non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin to understand and evaluate its core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve its annual budget, and to develop short-term and long-term operating plans. Appgate believes that non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin are useful measures to its management and to its investors because they provide consistency and comparability with past financial performance and between periods, as the metrics generally eliminate the effects of the variability of amortization expense of intangibles and non-cash equity-based compensation expense from period to period, which may fluctuate for reasons unrelated to overall operating performance. Appgate believes that the use of these measures enables its management to more effectively evaluate Appgate’s performance period-over-period and relative to its competitors, some of which use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for analysis of Appgate’s results as reported under GAAP. Because of these limitations, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin should not be considered as a replacement for gross profit and gross margin, as determined in accordance with GAAP, or as a measure of Appgate’s profitability.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin to gross profit and gross margin, the most directly comparable financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, for the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 and for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, is as follows (in thousands):

Non-GAAP Loss from Operations and Non-GAAP Operating Margin

Appgate defines non-GAAP loss from operations as GAAP loss from continuing operations excluding non-cash equity-based compensation expense and amortization expense of acquired intangible assets. Appgate defines non-GAAP operating margin as non-GAAP loss from continuing operations as a percentage of revenue.

Free Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow Margin

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that Appgate defines as net cash (used in) operating activities of continuing operations less cash used for purchases of property and equipment and repayment of finance leases. Appgate believes that free cash flow is a useful indicator of liquidity that provides information to management and investors, even if negative, as it provides useful information about the amount of cash generated (or consumed) by its operating activities that is available (or not available) to be used for other strategic initiatives. For example, if free cash flow is negative, we may need to access cash reserves or other sources of capital to invest in strategic initiatives. While Appgate believes that free cash flow is useful in evaluating its business, free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that has limitations as an analytical tool, and free cash flow should not be considered as an alternative to, or substitute for, net cash provided by (used in) operating activities in accordance with GAAP. The utility of free cash flow as a measure of its liquidity is limited as it does not represent the total increase or decrease in its cash balance for any given period and does not reflect its future contractual commitments. In addition, other companies, including companies in Appgate’s industry, may calculate free cash flow differently or not at all, which reduces the usefulness of free cash flow as a tool for comparing Appgate’s results to those of other companies.
