Accumulated revenues from the beginning of 2023, Increased to $19.3 million, Exceeding Revenues for the Entire Year of 2022
Tel Aviv, Israel, Oct. 10, 2023 — Alarum Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq, TASE: ALAR) (“Alarum” or the “Company”), a global provider of internet access and web data collection solutions, today provided preliminary key financial metrics guidance for the nine months ended September 30, 2023.
Based on a preliminary, unaudited review, Alarum anticipates reporting strong performance for the third quarter of 2023, highlighting continued operating and business growth:
- Accumulated revenues from the beginning of 2023 until the end of the third quarter, estimated at $19.3 million, exceeding the entire revenues of 2022, and representing an increase of 45% compared to the same period of 2022. Revenues for the third quarter of 2023 totaled to approximately $6.6 million, compared to $4.8 million for the same period in 2022, representing growth of 37%.
- In the third quarter of 2023, the Company achieved over $1.5 million in positive cashflow from operating activities, compared to negative cashflow of $1.4 million for the same period in 2022.
- Cash and cash equivalents balance as of September 30, 2023, amounted to approximately $7.7 million.
“At the beginning of the third quarter, we decided to direct efforts to improve our profitability. As part of our strategy, we implemented a scale down of investments into the consumer segment and focused on our enterprise business. Our decision immediately bears fruit – NetNut continues to accelerate its growth, resulting in consolidated revenues for the third quarter of 2023 of approximately $6.6 million, alongside a significant improvement in our bottom line. Accumulated revenues from the beginning of 2023, already surpass the total revenues of 2022 and we expect substantial improvement in our positive cashflow of more than $1.5 million, alongside improvements in additional financial parameters,” commented Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Alarum.
Alarum expects to release the fully reviewed financial statements on or before November 30, 2023.
