We caution you that the foregoing list may not contain all of the forward-looking statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

The outcome of the events described in these forward-looking statements is subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, but not limited to, those described in the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our filings with the SEC and, in particular, those risks discussed in Part I, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K, as amended, for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019 and in Part II, Item 1A of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Moreover, we operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks and uncertainties emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risks and uncertainties that could have an impact on the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We cannot assure you that the results, events and circumstances reflected in the forward-looking statements will be achieved or occur, and actual results, events or circumstances could differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.

We may not actually achieve the plans, intentions, or expectations disclosed in our forward-looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. Our forward-looking statements do not reflect the potential impact of any future acquisitions, mergers, dispositions, joint ventures, or investments we may make.

FORESCOUT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1. Description of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Company and Background
Forescout Technologies, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware and commenced operations in April 2000. The Company designs, develops, and markets device visibility, control, and orchestration software that helps organizations gain complete situational awareness of all devices in their interconnected environment and orchestrate actions to mitigate both their cyber and operational risk.
The Company offers its solution across two product groups: (i) products for visibility and control capabilities, and (ii) products for orchestration capabilities. The Company’s products for visibility and control capabilities consist of eyeSight, eyeSegment, eyeControl, and SilentDefense; eyeSight, eyeSegment, and eyeControl provide for visibility and control capabilities across the extended enterprise, from campus to data center to hybrid cloud to operational technology (“OT”) devices, while SilentDefense provides for visibility and control capabilities deeper within the OT portion of the network. The Company’s products for orchestration capabilities are comprised of its portfolio of eyeExtend family of products.
The Company offers its solution across two product types: (i) software products and (ii) hardware products. The Company’s software products include eyeSight, eyeSegment, eyeControl, eyeExtend, SilentDefense, and SilentDefense Command Center (“Software Products”). The Company’s hardware products include hardware that is sold separately for use with the Company’s Software Products and appliances that are embedded with the Company’s software (“Hardware Products”).
The Company sells its Software Products, Hardware Products, support and maintenance contracts, and professional services to end-customers through distributors and resellers, who are supported by the Company’s sales and marketing organization, and to a lesser extent directly to end-customers.
Proposed Merger
On February 6, 2020, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Original Merger Agreement”) with Ferrari Group Holdings, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Parent”), and Ferrari Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”). Parent and Merger Sub are affiliates of Advent International Corporation (“Advent”).
On July 15, 2020, the Company, Parent and Merger Sub entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Amended and Restated Merger Agreement”) in order to amend and restate the Original Merger Agreement.
The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will commence a tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase each issued and outstanding share of the Company’s common stock for $29.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding taxes (the “Offer Price”). The closing of the Offer is subject to certain limited customary conditions, including the tender by Company shareholders of at least one share more than 50% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. If the Offer is successful, then following consummation of the Offer, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement contemplates that the Merger will be effected pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law (the “DGCL”), which would not require a vote of the Company’s stockholders in order to consummate the Merger. At the effective time of the Merger each issued and outstanding share of the Company’s common stock (except for certain shares specified in the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement), whether or not tendered in accordance with the Offer, will be canceled and converted into the right to receive the Offer Price.

11


On July 20, 2020, Merger Sub commenced the Offer. The Offer is scheduled to expire at the end of the day, one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on August 14, 2020, unless the Offer is extended or earlier terminated.
Concurrently with the execution of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Forescout, Parent and Merger Sub entered into a settlement agreement to resolve pending litigation between them. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the parties have agreed to release their respective claims made in connection with the litigation.
COVID-19
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been uncertainty and disruption in the global economy and financial markets, which has decreased, and may further decrease, demand for a broad variety of goods and services, while also disrupting sales channels and marketing activities for an unknown period of time until the pandemic is contained. At this point, the extent to which COVID-19 may impact our financial condition or results of operations is uncertain.

Basis of Presentation
The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) using accounting policies that are consistent with those used in the preparation of the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2019. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted as permitted by the SEC's rules and regulations. The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements include the results of Forescout Technologies, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The condensed consolidated financial statements are unaudited and, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the fair presentation of the Company’s quarterly results. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2019 was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all the disclosures required by GAAP for the annual financial statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.
The preparation of interim condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes, including but not limited to the potential impacts arising from the recent COVID-19 and public and private policies and initiatives aimed at reducing its transmission. These estimates form the basis of judgments made about carrying values of assets and liabilities, which are not readily apparent from other sources. The areas where management has made estimates requiring judgment include, but are not limited to, the best estimate of standalone selling prices for license and related support, the period over which deferred sales commissions are amortized to expense, accruals, stock-based compensation, provision for income taxes including related reserves, identified intangibles and goodwill, purchase price allocation of an acquired business, and incremental borrowing rate for operating leases. As the extent and duration of the impact from COVID-19 continue to evolve and additional information becomes available, the Company’s estimates and assumptions may change materially in future periods. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies 
Restructuring cost
The Company records restructuring activities including costs for one-time termination benefits in accordance with ASC Topic 420 (“ASC 420”), Exit or Disposal Cost Obligations. A liability is recognized when management has committed to a restructuring plan and has communicated those actions to employees. Restructuring cost for employee workforce reductions are recorded upon employee notification for employees whose required continuing service period is 60 days or less and ratably over the employee’s continuing service period for employees whose required continuing service period is greater than 60 days. Employee termination benefits covered by existing benefit arrangements are

12


recorded in accordance with ASC Topic 712, Non-retirement Post-employment Benefits. These costs are recognized as restructuring charges in the condensed consolidated statement of operations when management has committed to a restructuring plan and the severance costs are probable and estimable. Refer to Note 5 for further details.

Credit losses
Effective January 1, 2020, the Company adopted the requirements of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments, which requires the measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for financial assets held at amortized cost. ASU 2016-13 replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with an expected loss model which requires the use of forward-looking information to calculate credit loss estimates. It also eliminates the concept of other-than-temporary impairment and requires credit losses related to available-for-sale debt securities to be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a reduction in the amortized cost basis of the securities. These changes will result in earlier recognition of credit losses. The Company adopted ASU 2016-13 effective January 1, 2020 with the cumulative effect of adoption recorded as an adjustment to retained earnings. The effect on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures is not material.
Except for the impact of the adoption of Topic 326, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies described in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 that have had a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes.
Recently Issued and Not Yet Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes that eliminates certain exceptions related to the approach for intraperiod tax allocation, the methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period and the recognition of deferred tax liabilities for outside basis differences. It also clarifies and simplifies other aspects of the accounting for income taxes. The standard is effective for annual and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2020. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the timing and impact of the adoption of this standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Disaggregation of Revenue
The Company derives revenue from sale of Software Products, Hardware Products, term contracts, and professional services. All revenue recognized in the condensed consolidated statements of operations is considered to be revenue from contracts with customers.

License Revenue
License revenue consists of sales of Software Products and Hardware Products. Software Products are sold with either a perpetual license or a term license. License revenue includes the value allocated to license within Software Products subscription contracts. License revenue is recognized at the time of transfer of control, which is generally upon delivery of access to software downloads or shipment, provided that all other revenue recognition criteria have been met.
Subscription Revenue
Subscription revenue is derived from support and maintenance contracts, the value allocated to support and maintenance within Software Products subscription contracts, and software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) offering contracts. SaaS customers do not have the right to take possession of the cloud-based software. Subscription contracts have terms that are generally either one or three years, but can be up to five years. Subscription revenue is recognized ratably over the term of the contract and any unearned subscription revenue is included in deferred revenue.
Professional Services Revenue
Professional services revenue is derived primarily from customer fees for optional installation of the Company’s products or training. Generally, the Company recognizes revenue for professional services as the services are rendered.
Revenue from Contracts with Customers
Contract Assets and Contract Liabilities
A contract asset is a right to consideration in exchange for products or services that the Company has transferred to a customer when that right is conditional and is not just subject to the passage of time. The Company’s payment terms typically range between 30 to 90 days. The Company has no material contract assets. A contract liability is an obligation to transfer products or services for which the Company has received consideration, or for which an amount of consideration is due from the customer. Contract liabilities include customer deposits under non-cancelable contracts included in accrued expenses, and current and non-current deferred revenue balances. The Company’s contract balances are reported in a net contract asset or liability position on a contract-by-contract basis at the end of each reporting period.
Significant changes in contract liabilities during the periods presented are as follows (in thousands):

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, a vast majority of subscription revenue and a minority of license revenue and professional services revenue were included in the contract liabilities balance at the beginning of each period.
Performance Obligations
Contracted not recognized revenue was $172.1 million as of June 30, 2020, of which the Company expects to recognize approximately 61% of the revenue over the next 12 months and the remainder thereafter.
Note 3. Fair Value Measurements
Financial assets are recorded at fair value on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with inputs used to measure their fair value.
The accounting guidance establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the independence of the source and objective evidence of the inputs used. There are three fair value hierarchies based upon the level of inputs that are significant to fair value measurement:
Level 1—Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2—Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices for identical assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the assets or liabilities, or inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means.
Level 3—Inputs that are generally unobservable and are supported by little or no market activity, and typically reflect management’s estimate of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

There have been no transfers between fair value measurement levels during the periods presented. The following table presents the fair value of the Company’s financial assets according to the fair value hierarchy as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 (in thousands):

Note 5. Restructuring
Q2 2020 Restructuring Plan
In the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, the Company initiated a restructuring plan (the “Q2 2020 Restructuring Plan”) as the Company continues to make adjustments to its overall expense plan and workforce to further align with

16


its strategy and partially in response to the impact of COVID-19 on business operations. The Q2 2020 Restructuring Plan includes reductions in force of approximately 60 employees across various functions, of which a majority were notified by June 30, 2020 and is expected to be substantially completed by September 30, 2020.
Q1 2020 Restructuring Plan
In the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, the Company initiated a restructuring plan (the “Q1 2020 Restructuring Plan”) as part of the Company’s effort to realign its cost structure in both its go-to-market and engineering organizations. The Q1 2020 Restructuring Plan included reductions in force of approximately 90 employees within the sales, marketing, and engineering functions and was largely completed by March 31, 2020 with no material future costs expected to be incurred.
The following table summarizes the activity related to the accrual for restructuring charges (in thousands):

The Company has issued PSUs to select executives under the 2017 Plan. The majority of the PSUs vest over a period of four years from the date of grant subject to both the continued employment of the participant with the Company and the achievement of one or more pre-established financial performance goals. Stock-based compensation expense for PSUs is recognized using the accelerated attribution method over the requisite service periods when it is probable that the performance condition will be achieved.
As of June 30, 2020, the total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested RSUs and PSUs was $118.8 million, which is expected to be amortized over a weighted-average period of approximately 2.4 years.

Note 7. Income Taxes
The Company estimates its annual effective tax rate each quarter and specific events are discretely recognized as they occur under the provisions of ASC 740-270, Income Taxes: Interim Reporting. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company recorded a tax provision of $1.3 million and $1.7 million, respectively, representing an effective tax rate of (5.8)% and (2.1)%, respectively. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company recorded a tax provision of $0.5 million and $1.2 million, respectively, representing an effective tax rate of (1.6)% and (1.9)%, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rates for these periods were negative as it has maintained a valuation allowance on the U.S. losses. The key components of the income tax provision primarily consist of foreign income taxes, unrecognized tax benefits, and U.S. state minimum taxes. The effective tax rate decreased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 primarily due to a decrease in worldwide loss before income taxes. The loss was primarily generated in the United States and does not impact the provision for income taxes as it was offset by a full valuation allowance.
In response to COVID-19, President Donald Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act provides numerous tax provisions and other stimulus measures, including temporary changes regarding the prior and future utilization of net operating losses, temporary changes to the prior and future limitations on interest deductions, temporary suspension of certain payment requirements for the employer portion of Social Security taxes, technical corrections from prior tax legislation for tax depreciation of certain qualified improvement property, and the creation of certain refundable employee retention credits. The impact of the CARES Act does not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
Note 8. Net Loss Per Share
Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by basic weighted-average shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding, including potentially dilutive securities, unless anti-dilutive.

Note 9. Subsequent Events
On February 6, 2020, the Company entered into the Original Merger Agreement with Parent and Merger Sub. Parent and Merger Sub are affiliates of Advent.
On July 15, 2020, the Company, Parent and Merger Sub entered into the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement in order to amend and restate the Original Merger Agreement. The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will commence the Offer to purchase each issued and outstanding share of the Company’s common stock for the Offer Price. The closing of the Offer is subject to

19


certain limited customary conditions, including the tender by Company shareholders of at least one share more than 50% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. If the Offer is successful, then following consummation of the Offer, Merger Sub will be merged with and into the Company, with the Company surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent. The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement contemplates that the Merger will be effected pursuant to Section 251(h) of the DGCL, which would not require a vote of the Company’s stockholders in order to consummate the Merger. At the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of the Company’s common stock (except for certain shares specified in the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement), whether or not tendered in accordance with the Offer, will be canceled and converted into the right to receive the Offer Price.
On July 20, 2020, Merger Sub commenced the Offer. The Offer is scheduled to expire at the end of the day, one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on August 14, 2020, unless the Offer is extended or earlier terminated.
Concurrently with the execution of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Forescout, Parent and Merger Sub entered into a settlement agreement to resolve pending litigation between them. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the parties have agreed to release their respective claims made in connection with the litigation.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our (1) unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and (2) audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” for the year ended December 31, 2019 included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. This discussion contains forward-looking statements based upon current plans, expectations and beliefs that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under the section titled “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. See the section titled “Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”
Unless expressly indicated or the context requires otherwise, the terms “Forescout,” “we,” “us,” and “our” in this document refer to Forescout Technologies, Inc., a Delaware corporation, and, where appropriate, its wholly owned subsidiaries.
Overview
We offer our solution across two product groups: (i) products for visibility and control capabilities, and (ii) products for orchestration capabilities. Our products for visibility and control capabilities consist of eyeSight, eyeSegment, eyeControl, and SilentDefense. Our eyeSight, eyeSegment, and eyeControl products provide for visibility and control capabilities across the extended enterprise, from campus to data center to hybrid cloud to OT devices, while our SilentDefense product provides for visibility and control capabilities deeper within the OT portion of the network. Our products for orchestration capabilities are comprised of our portfolio of our eyeExtend family of products.
We offer our solution across two product types: (i) software products and (ii) hardware products. Our software products include eyeSight, eyeSegment, eyeControl, eyeExtend, SilentDefense, and SilentDefense Command Center (“Software Products”). Our hardware products include hardware that is sold separately for use with our Software Products and appliances that are embedded with our software (“Hardware Products”).
We also offer our solution across license types and increments. Our Software Products are sold with a perpetual license or a subscription license. Customers can purchase in license increments of 100 devices, with hardware sold separately based on customer deployment requirements. Customers can manage their own deployments of our products in varying options capable of scaling and managing deployments of up to 2,000,000 devices under a single console. Customers can purchase our SilentDefense products in license increments that are on a per sensor basis.
Proposed Merger
On February 6, 2020, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Original Merger Agreement”) with Ferrari Group Holdings, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership (“Parent”), and Ferrari Merger Sub, Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”). Parent and Merger Sub are affiliates of Advent International Corporation (“Advent”).
On July 15, 2020, Forescout, Parent and Merger Sub entered into an Amended and Restated Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Amended and Restated Merger Agreement”) in order to amend and restate the Original Merger Agreement. The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement provides that, subject to the terms of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Merger Sub will commence a tender offer (the “Offer”) to purchase each issued and outstanding share of our common stock for $29.00 per share, net to the seller in cash, without interest and subject to any withholding taxes (the “Offer Price”). The closing of the Offer is subject to certain limited customary conditions, including the tender by Company shareholders of at least one share more than 50% of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares. If the Offer is successful, then following consummation of the Offer, Merger Sub will be merged with and into Forescout, with Forescout surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”). The Amended and Restated Merger Agreement contemplates that the Merger will be effected pursuant to Section 251(h) of the Delaware General Corporation Law, which would not require a vote of our stockholders in order to consummate the Merger. At

21


the effective time of the Merger, each issued and outstanding share of our common stock (except for certain shares specified in the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement), whether or not tendered in accordance with the Offer, will be canceled and converted into the right to receive the Offer Price.
On July 20, 2020, Merger Sub commenced the Offer. The Offer is scheduled to expire at the end of the day, one minute after 11:59 p.m., Eastern time, on August 14, 2020, unless the Offer is extended or earlier terminated.
Concurrently with the execution of the Amended and Restated Merger Agreement, Forescout, Parent and Merger Sub entered into a settlement agreement to resolve pending litigation between them. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, the parties have agreed to release their respective claims made in connection with the litigation.
Impact of COVID-19 on our Results of Operations
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of COVID-19 a pandemic, which continues to spread throughout the U.S. and the world and has resulted in authorities implementing numerous measures to contain the virus, including travel restrictions, quarantines, shelter-in-place orders, and business limitations and shutdowns.
The broader impact of COVID-19 on our results of operations and overall financial performance remains uncertain because the extent and duration of the impact from COVID-19 continue to evolve. Our operations have been impacted by office closures globally and restrictions on employee travel and in-person meetings; however, we have generally been able to deliver our products and services remotely. To support the health and well-being of our employees, customers, partners and communities, a vast majority of our employees continue to work remotely as of June 30, 2020. Despite the extent of the COVID-19 pandemic, we exited the second quarter of 2020 with a stronger growth in revenue and improved profitability as compared to the first quarter of 2020, driven by our continuous effort in closing strategic deals with both new and existing customers as well as continuous adjustments to our overall expense plan and workforce to further align with our strategy. We will continue to evaluate the nature and extent of the impact of COVID-19 on our business. See section titled “Risk Factors” for further discussion of the possible impact of COVID-19 on our business.
Second Quarter 2020 Financial Highlights
Since our inception through June 30, 2020, we have sold to more than 3,800 end-customers in nearly 100 countries, including 27% of the Global 2000. For the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, we sold to 8% and 8% of the Global 2000, respectively. Our end-customers represent a broad range of industries, including government, financial, technology, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, services, retail, education, and entertainment.

Continued Retention and Sales to Existing End-Customers
We believe the net-recurring revenue retention rate over the trailing 12 month period on our subscription revenue and on the annualized value of our subscription license revenue is an important metric to measure our ability to retain and increase sales to our existing end-customers. We calculate the net-recurring revenue retention rate using the following formula:
X = (A + B + C)/(B + D)
where:
X = net-recurring revenue retention rate
A = annualized value of term contracts renewed over the trailing 12 month period
B = trailing 12 month annualized value of term contracts not subject to renewal because the scheduled expiration date of the multi-year contract falls outside of the 12 month period under measurement
C = trailing 12 month annualized value of new term contracts from end-customers that have been end customers for more than one year
D = 12 months annualized value of term contracts scheduled to terminate or renew during the 12 month period under measurement
We believe this metric is an indication of the continuing value we provide to our end-customers because it shows the renewal rate of their support and maintenance contracts and Software Products subscription contracts. Our net-recurring revenue retention rate as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were 110% and 122%, respectively. The 1,200 basis point decrease was primarily driven by the lack of new term contract from end-customers that have been end-customers for more than one year in the trailing 12 month period ending June 30, 2020 relative to the trailing 12 month period ending December 31, 2019. A net retention rate over 100% indicates that our products are expanding within our end-customer base, whereas a rate less than 100% indicates that our products are constricting within our end-customer base. Additionally, this calculation includes all changes to the annualized value of the recurring revenue from term contracts used in the calculation, which includes scheduled expiration periods, stub periods, changes in pricing, additional products purchased, lost end-customers, early renewals, and decreases in the number of devices licensed to be managed by our license under contract. This metric does not take into account perpetual license revenue or professional services revenue. The annualized value of our contracts is a legal and contractual determination made by assessing the contractual terms with our end-customers. The annualized value of our term contracts is not determined by reference to historical revenue, deferred revenue, or any other GAAP financial measure over any period.
Recurring Revenue Rate
We are focused on providing our customers with more licensing and delivery options from which to purchase our products.
Included in our license revenue is the value allocated to license within our Software Products subscription contracts, which is recognized at the time of transfer of control, which is generally upon delivery of access to software downloads or shipment, provided that all other revenue recognition criteria have been met or upon commencement of a renewed term contract.
Included in our subscription revenue is the value allocated to support and maintenance within our Software Products subscription contracts and revenue derived from support and maintenance contracts. Subscription revenue is recognized ratably over the term of the contract.
We believe this metric is an important metric in understanding the impact of customer buying preferences for the varying Software Products options upon our reported revenue. We calculate the recurring revenue rate as a subscription revenue plus the portion of license revenue that is derived from the value allocated to license within our Software

Products subscription contracts (“term license”), collectively, as a percent of total revenue, as measured over the trailing 12 month period. We calculate the recurring revenue rate using the following formula:
X = (A + B)/C
where:
X = recurring revenue rate
A = subscription revenue over the trailing 12 month period
B = term license revenue over the trailing 12 month period
C = total revenue
Our recurring revenue rate as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019 were 57% and 49%, respectively. The 800 basis point increase primarily reflects the increased adoption of new subscription contracts in the six months ended June 30, 2020. The numerator does not take into account perpetual license revenue or professional services revenue. The numerator does include the value allocated to license within our Software Products subscription contracts for all contract durations. Those contract durations that are greater than 12 months will raise the recurring revenue rate for the first 12 months of the contract duration and will lower the recurring revenue rate for the balance of the contract duration after the first 12 months relative to the annualized value of such Software Products subscription contracts. As disclosed in Note 2. Revenue, Deferred Revenue and Deferred Commissions of our Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements included in Part I, Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, within the Disaggregation of Revenue, term license revenue was $19.2 million and $19.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020, respectively, and $11.2 million and $11.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, respectively.
