What’s attracting investors to FireEye?

FireEye is aiming to improve several metrics and target non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) operating profitability over the next fiscal year. Its product revenue has been decreasing for a while, but it has seen an increase in subscription revenue to offset the decline. In 2Q17, the increase in subscription revenue beat the decline in product revenue by $400,000. However, subscription revenue rose only 13.0% YoY (year-over-year) in 2Q17 compared to a 38.0% rise in 2016.

Revenue growth in 2Q17 was 6.0% YoY compared to 3.0% YoY in 1Q17. Investors seem to like higher revenue growth for a company that has always reported losses. FireEye’s management is confident that the company can achieve non-GAAP operating profitability by the end of 2017.

FireEye’s gross margin in 2Q17 rose marginally to 74.0%. Its operating expenses that quarter fell 24.0% YoY to $178.0 million from $235.0 million in 2Q16. It reduced its operating expenses by $100.0 million in the first six months of 2017.
