“I am very proud of the OneSpan team’s performance in the first quarter, which resulted in a strong topline, enhanced profitability and positive cash flow generation,” stated OneSpan interim CEO, Victor Limongelli. “Since I’ve taken the helm in January, we have continued to find opportunities for additional cost reductions, as well as operational efficiencies later in the year, totaling incremental savings of approximately $10 million on an annualized basis. These savings, combined with our strong Q1 performance, gives us confidence that we will exceed our previously communicated Adjusted EBITDA guidance. Looking ahead, we will continue to focus on driving efficient revenue growth, profitability and cash flow as we work to improve our long-term operating profile.”

  • ARR is calculated as the approximate annualized value of our customer recurring contracts as of the measurement date. These include subscription, term-based license, and maintenance and support contracts and exclude one-time fees. To the extent that we are negotiating a renewal with a customer within 90 days after the expiration of a recurring contract, we continue to include that revenue in ARR if we are actively in discussion with the customer for a new recurring contract or renewal and the customer has not notified us of an intention to not renew. See our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2024 for additional information describing how we define ARR, including how ARR differs from GAAP revenue.
  • NRR is defined as the approximate year-over-year growth in ARR from the same set of customers at the end of the prior year period.
  • An explanation of the use of Non-GAAP financial measures is included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” A reconciliation of each Non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure has also been provided in the tables below. We are not providing a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA guidance to GAAP net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because we are unable to predict certain items included in GAAP net income without unreasonable efforts.
