Forescout Technologies Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2020 Revenue

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 8, 2020 – Forescout Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSCT), the leader in device visibility and control, today announced preliminary unaudited results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020, based upon preliminary unaudited financial information.

Total revenue for the second quarter is expected to be in the range of $78 million – $82 million, up 40% quarter-over-quarter at the midpoint of the range. Within this, the company anticipates license revenue from sales of one-year term-based licenses to be in excess of 35% of all license revenue.

During the second quarter, Forescout closed strategic deals with both new and existing customers and demonstrated strong traction on its plan of building a more predictable revenue stream through sales of term-based licenses and other subscription offerings. 

Michael DeCesare, CEO and President of Forescout Technologies said:

“I am extremely proud of our team’s performance. We remained focused and executed well, despite macroeconomic challenges and the impact of ongoing litigation with Advent International. The strength of our quarterly results shows the compelling value proposition for Forescout’s solutions and that we can execute and deliver despite obstacles. We believe Advent’s claims are without merit, and we are continuing to pursue our rights under the existing merger agreement.”

The above information reflects preliminary estimates with respect to Forescout’s second quarter 2020 results based on currently available information. Forescout is providing ranges, rather than specific amounts, for the preliminary estimates primarily because the financial close process and review are not yet complete and, as a result, Forescout’s final results may vary from these preliminary estimates.

There will not be a conference call in conjunction with this press release. Forescout intends to release final information regarding its second quarter 2020 financial results at a future date.
