Company and Background
ForgeRock, Inc. (“ForgeRock” or “the Company”) is a modern digital identity platform transforming the way enterprises secure, manage, and govern the identities of customers, employees and partners, APIs, microservices, devices, and Internet of Things (IoT). Organizations adopt the ForgeRock Identity Platform as their digital identity system of record to enhance data security and sovereignty as well as improve performance. ForgeRock’s identity platform provides a full suite of identity management, access management, identity governance, and artificial intelligence (AI)-powered autonomous identity solutions. The Company is headquartered in San Francisco, California and has operations in Canada and the United States of America (collectively referred to as Americas), France, Germany, Norway and the United Kingdom (collectively referred to as EMEA), Australia, New Zealand and Singapore (collectively referred to as APAC). The Company was formed in Norway in 2009 and incorporated in Delaware in February 2012.
Initial Public Offering

On September 20, 2021, the Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”), in which the Company issued and sold 12,650,000 shares of Class A common stock at a price per share of $25.00, including 1,650,000 shares resulting from the exercise in full of the underwriters’ option to purchase additional shares. The Company received net proceeds of $295.7 million from the IPO, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions of $21.3 million and before deducting estimated offering costs of $6.2 million.
Immediately prior to the completion of the IPO, all shares of the Company’s outstanding redeemable convertible preferred stock converted into 42,778,408 shares of common stock on a one-to-one basis and immediately thereafter but still prior to the completion of the Company’s IPO, all outstanding shares of common stock were reclassified into 25,421,137 shares of Class B common stock on a one-to-one basis.

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements, which include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries, have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

Use of Estimates
The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP as set forth in the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”). These accounting principles require us to make certain estimates and assumptions. The significant estimates and assumptions include but are not limited to (i) standalone selling price (“SSP”) in revenue recognition, (ii) valuation allowance of deferred income taxes, (iii) valuation of stock-based compensation, (iv) valuation of the Company’s common stock prior to the Company’s IPO in September 2021, (v) valuation of the preferred stock tranche option liability prior to the Company’s IPO, and (vi) valuation of preferred stock warrant liability. Management evaluates these estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis and makes estimates based on historical experience and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable. However, because future events and their effects cannot be determined with certainty, actual results may differ from these assumptions and estimates, and such differences could be material.
In 2019, the World Health Organization categorized the Coronavirus disease (“COVID-19”) as a pandemic. The rapid worldwide spread of COVID-19 has resulted in economic and societal disruptions and uncertainties, which have negatively impacted business with a corresponding decrease in demand for certain goods and services, including possibly from the Company’s customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted and may continue to disrupt the operations of the Company’s customers and partners, particularly the Company’s customers in industries, including travel and entertainment, that have been especially impacted by the pandemic. Other disruptions or potential disruptions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic include restrictions on the Company’s personnel and the personnel of the Company’s partners to travel and access customers for training, delays in product development efforts, and additional government requirements or other incremental mitigation efforts that may further impact the Company’s business, financial condition, and results of operations.
If the pandemic or its impact changes, the Company’s judgments or estimates will also change, and those changes could materially impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
