cyan AG announces preliminary financial figures for the first half of 2021

Munich, August 24, 2021 – Preliminary revenues of cyan AG amounted to EUR 3.5 million in the first half of 2021 (H1 2020: EUR 16.9 million). In addition, EUR 1.0 million (H1 2020 EUR 2.3 million) of other operating income and changes in inventories were recognized – resulting in total earnings of EUR 4.6 million (H1 2020: EUR 19.2 million). Revenues increased slightly to EUR 1.9 million compared to the previous quarter (Q1 2021: EUR 1.7 million). In contrast, the sum of other operating income and changes in inventories decreased; this was mainly due to the fact that the contract costs incurred transitioned from capitalization to scheduled amortization with the launch at Orange. EBITDA for the first half of the year stood at EUR -7.4 million (H1 2020: EUR 2.2 million). Net debt increased from EUR 7.3 million as of 31.12.2020 to EUR 10.8 million.

cyan is in a transformation year in 2021 in which the focus is on generating recurring revenues – this process has not yet fully taken place in the first half of the year. Further, no major license agreements have been concluded so far in 2021, which generated very high non-recurring revenues especially in the previous year.

Due to the development of sales, the Executive Board has decided to work on a comprehensive restructuring concept that will enable the company to reach operational break-even as quickly as possible, even in a conservative scenario. This includes a cost reduction program, a cash capital increase of up to EUR 8 million and a repositioning of the BSS/OSS (i-new) business unit. The goal is to focus cyan on the high-growth area of cybersecurity for telecom companies and to enter other targeted markets at a later stage.
