First Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $1.8 million, in-line with the first quarter of 2021. The increase in INTRUSION Shield revenue was offset by lower revenue from our legacy consulting business.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2022 were $5.2 million, also in-line with the first quarter of 2021. Decreases in sales and marketing expenses were offset by higher than normal general and administrative expenses from legal and professional services.
The net loss for the first quarter 2022 was $4.1 million, or ($0.21) per share, compared to a loss of $3.9 million, or ($0.22) per share for the first quarter of 2021.
