St. Bernard Software Announces Its Financial Results for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2010

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - November 16, 2010) - St. Bernard Software, Inc. (OTCBB: SBSW), a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced unaudited financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Third Quarter 2010 Financial and Operational Highlights

--  Company gained approximately 2,000 customers as a result of the recent
    purchase of substantially all of the assets of Red Condor, Inc., an
    award-winning provider of email security.

--  Net billings* for the 2010 third quarter totaled $5.6 million, an
    increase of approximately 29% compared to the same period in 2009.

--  Net billings* for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were $15.4
    million, an increase of approximately 16% over the same period last

--  Cash and cash equivalents increased to $2.8 million as of September 30,
    2010 from $2.5 million as of December 31, 2009 and $1.4 million as of
    September 30, 2009.

--  Generated positive cash flow of $335,000 for YTD 2010 compared to
    $630,000 negative cash flow for the same period in 2009, an increase
    of 153%.  Cash flow for the period includes $3.2 million of convertible
    notes issued by the company in connection with a Security Purchase
    Agreement.  The notes can be converted into shares of Company stock at
    $1.10 per share.

--  Q3 operating expenses increased approximately 36 % from $3.3 million in
    2009 to $4.4 million in 2010 as a result of additional operating
    expenses and transaction costs associated with the Red Condor

--  Year to date net loss increased to $1.9 million through September 30,
    2010 from $600,000 for the same period of 2009 mainly a result of
    additional operating expenses and transaction costs associated with the
    Red Condor Transaction.

--  In August 2010, the company entered into a lease agreement for new
    corporate offices effective January 1, 2011. The Company's lease
    payment is expected to decrease approximately $1 million per year
    starting in 2011.

"Our third quarter met operational expectations and we are optimistic about the substantial growth in billings that we saw compared to 2009," said Lou Ryan, CEO of St. Bernard Software. "Additionally, we were fully prepared for the integration of Red Condor Inc. and are pleased with the results. Our expense line continues to be within expectations."

Third Quarter and Year-to-Date 2010 Net Billings*

Net billings* increased for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 by approximately 29% from $4.4 million in 2009 to $5.6 million in 2010. Year to date, for the nine months ending September 30, 2010, net billings totaled $15.4 million, a 16% increase compared to $13.3 million for the same period ending September 30, 2009.

* Net billings represent the amount of subscription contracts billed to customers net of discounts and are not numerical measurements that can be calculated in accordance with GAAP. The Company provides this measurement in its financial performance because this measurement provides a consistent basis for understanding the company's sales activities for the current period. The Company believes the billing measurement is useful to investors because the GAAP measurements of revenue and deferred revenue in the current period include subscription contracts commenced in the prior periods. The rollforward of deferred revenue (which includes net billings and revenue) for the third quarter of 2010 is set forth at the end of this press release.

Asset Purchase Agreement

On July 28, 2010, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement ("APA") with Red Condor, Inc., an award-winning provider of fully managed email security solutions, pursuant to which St. Bernard purchased substantially all of the assets and assumed certain liabilities of Red Condor in return for restricted shares of Common Stock of St. Bernard. The acquisition builds upon the success of St. Bernard's existing hybrid platform as Red Condor's managed security solutions is a natural extension of St. Bernard's product portfolio and business strategy. As a result of the acquisition, the Company gained approximately 2,000 new customers, a highly scalable on-demand platform, a sophisticated Threat Analysis Center, and a world class provisioning engine.

During the third quarter, we focused on and completed a significant portion of the transition of the Red Condor product on to our current hybrid platform. We have integrated Red Condor's 24x7x365 messaging Threat Analysis Center into our Unified Threat Intelligence Center.

Financing/Credit Facilities

On August 2, 2010, the Company issued convertible notes (the "Notes") in the amount of $3.2 million pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement ("SPA") with certain Noteholders (the "Investors"). Pursuant to the terms of the SPA, St. Bernard issued to the Investors Notes and Warrants ("Warrants") to purchase up to 210,111 shares of Common Stock in the aggregate. Under the terms of the Notes, the Notes mature on August 2, 2014. Interest on the outstanding principal balance accrues at a rate of three percent (3.0%) per annum and accrued interest is added to the balance of the Notes. All unpaid principal and interest on the Notes is due and payable at maturity. The Investors may convert the Notes at any time into shares of Common Stock of St. Bernard at a fixed conversion price of $1.10. At any time after the issuance date of the Notes and prior to the Maturity Date, following the occurrence of any period of 60 consecutive trading days where the average closing price of the Common Stock of St. Bernard for such period is equal to or greater than $1.25 per share, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes together with any unpaid interest shall be converted into Common Stock of St. Bernard at a conversion price of $1.10. The Warrants have an exercise price equal to $1.10 per share, are immediately exercisable and expire on August 2, 2014. The Company expects to use the additional funding to improve the Company's market leadership position through accelerated hybrid platform development and the delivery of new and innovative offerings to its global customers.

The Company has an existing credit facility with Silicon Valley Bank under which there was a borrowing availability of $1.9 million with no balance outstanding as of September 30, 2010.

Corporate Facilities Lease Agreement

On August 2, 2010, the Company entered into a lease agreement (the "New Lease") for approximately 28,633 square feet. The premises will serve as the Company's new headquarters when its current lease expires on December 31, 2010. The New Lease has a term of sixty-five (65) months. Beginning January 1, 2011, the Company will only be required to pay a monthly Base Rent in the amount of $46,000. The Company currently leases approximately 56,000 square feet for its corporate office space. The current facility lease calls for monthly rent of approximately $142,000 per month.

Business Outlook

Mr. Ryan added, "In addition to strong current quarterly billings and operational execution, we anticipate significant expense savings as we move to our new Company Headquarters in Q1 2011. The move enables us to significantly improve our space creating long term operational benefits while reducing annual cost by approximately $1 million. We expect that this savings will be reinvested in our overall growth strategy.

"We are also excited about this quarter's new product offering; iPrism RF. iPrism RF, our Remote Filtering Client, has been well received and sales are meeting expectations. We have an ambitious new product schedule and that we will continue to invest in our engineering and product development efforts to differentiate our offerings.

"Year to date we have executed well against our growth plan. We began this year with an aggressive strategy which outlined new products, new experienced executives and the acquisition of additional working capital. We have met all of our goals to and are poised to exit 2010 from a position of strength."
