TOKYO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, today announced earnings results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022, ending June 30, 2022.

Trend Micro builds upon an exceptional Q1 2022 by reporting 17% year-over-year growth in Q2 2022 at actual currency.

Growth across all regions and product segments, particularly enterprise, was driven by success in extended detection and response and cloud security. Enterprise subscription-based ARR increased by 32% year-over-year along with a 13% increase in subscription-based customers, now totaling more than 404,000. The company continues to diversify its customer portfolio and market offerings, increasing profitability and industry leadership.

Eva Chen, co-founder and chief executive officer for Trend Micro, shared: "Businesses need visibility, ease-of-use, and a strong SaaS-based platform from their security partner. Our unified platform sets us apart by allowing businesses to understand and mitigate their cybersecurity risk no matter where they are – physically and digitally. We distinguish ourselves with holistic detection and response, managed services, and a focus on leveraging the power of the cloud. I'm proud that Trend Micro continues to be an innovative security leader that meets the most rigorous and constantly evolving cybersecurity requirements of our customers."

For this quarter, Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 54,874 million Yen (or US $423 million, 129.67 JPY = 1USD). The company posted operating income of 7,542 million Yen (or US $58 million) and net income attributable to owners of the parent of 6,430 million Yen (or US $49 million) for the quarter.

As of now, the company will revise its consolidated results forecast for the full fiscal year ending December 31, 2022 (released on February 17, 2022) taking into consideration the great volatility in the foreign currency exchange rates. This revision is made only in association with the foreign currency exchange rates, and there is no substantive change in the presupposedness from the forecast previously published.

Based on information currently available to the company, consolidated net sales for the year ending December 31, 2022 is expected to be 225,900 million Yen (or US $1,685 million, based on an exchange rate of 134 JPY = 1 USD). Operating income and net income are expected to be 42,000 million Yen (or US $313 million) and 30,300 million Yen (or US $226 million), respectively.
