FalconStor Software, Inc. (OTCQB: FALC), a trusted data protection leader modernizing disaster recovery and backup for the hybrid cloud world, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and full year 2021, which ended on December 31, 2021, delivering a 40% year-over-year increase in subscription revenue for the full year of 2021, fueled by the growth in managed service provider business and market adoption of hybrid cloud data protection solutions.

“We are making good progress against our strategic plans to reinvent FalconStor and enable secure hybrid cloud backup and data protection,” said Todd Brooks, FalconStor CEO. “Driven by encouraging adoption of the FalconStor StorSafe and StorGuard solutions, we continue to focus on building recurring revenue and expanding new and existing and commercial channels to market. As part of this focus, we signed additional managed service providers, and continued migrating our installed based to a subscription revenue model. As a result, total subscription revenue increased 20% compared to Q4 of 2020, and 40% for the full year of 2021 compared to 2020.”

“While we are encouraged by our subscription revenue growth and expanding partnerships, we are continuing to work toward our goal of consistent total revenue growth. Despite total revenue increasing by 4% year-over-year during the quarter, total revenue for the year of 2021 decreased by 4% compared to 2020. Consistent with our commitment to deliver profitable operating results, we delivered positive GAAP Net Income for the full year of 2021, but are focused on increasing our level of profitability in 2022. Migration to the cloud, data center rationalization, and increased leverage of outsourced managed services are top priorities for enterprise CIOs and are fundamental macro shifts to which FalconStor technology and market experience are well aligned,” added Brooks. “We are excited by our hybrid cloud focus, strategic progress, and trust our shareholders have placed in our team to deliver customer and shareholder value.”
