Aviat Networks Announces Fiscal First Quarter 2013 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), a leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of  fiscal year 2013, which ended September 28, 2012.
 

Financial Highlights for Q1FY13

  • Book to Bill at 1
  • Revenue for the quarter was near the top of guidance range at $115.0M
  • GAAP Gross Margin of 29.3%; Non-GAAP Gross Margin was above the mid-point of guidance range at 29.6% 
  • GAAP Net Loss including discontinued operations was $(2.2)M or $(0.04) per share; Non-GAAP Net Income from continuing operations of $2.8M or $0.05 per share

GAAP Financial Results

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, revenue was $115.0 million, compared with $111.4 million in the year-ago quarter. Revenue and results of operations from our WiMAX business are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented. The Company reported a net loss, including discontinued operations, of $(2.2) million or $(0.04) per share, compared with a net loss of $(6.8) million or $(0.12) per share in the year-ago quarter. Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(0.8) million or $(0.01) per share, compared with the loss from continuing operations of $(3.7) million or $(0.06) per share in the year-ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents were $85.1 million as of September 28, 2012 compared with $96.0 million as of the end of the prior quarter. The decrease in cash was due to a delay in the timing of a number of large collections that were recovered during the month of October 2012.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Non-GAAP income from continuing operations for the quarter was $2.8 million or $0.05 per share, compared with a non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $0.1 million, or $0.00 per share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $4.7 million compared with $1.3 million in the year ago period.

The first quarter of fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP results excluded $2.7 million of pre-tax charges composed primarily of the following:

  • $1.5 million for share-based compensation expense
  • $0.3 million for amortization of purchased intangibles
  • $0.6 million for transactional tax assessments
  • $0.3 million of restructuring charges

The first quarter of fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP results also excluded an income tax provision of $0.9 million. Loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes was $(1.4) million for the quarter.  A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the quarter comparison with the year-ago period is provided on Table 4 along with the accompanying notes.

First Quarter Revenue by Region

Revenue in the North America region was $38.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with $37.1 million in the year-ago quarter and $40.7 million in the prior quarter. International revenue was $76.3 million, compared with $74.3 million in the year ago quarter and $75.3 million in the prior quarter.

"We are very pleased with our first quarter results and now are beginning to get traction with our new products and the resulting total cost of ownership benefits to our customers," said Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "I am increasingly confident that we are on the right track to profitably expand our business and create shareholder value."

Outlook

Based on current trends, the second quarter of fiscal 2013 revenue outlook range is $115M-$120M. Non-GAAP gross margins in the quarter are expected to be in the range of 29.5%-30.5% and non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be in the $31.0-$32.0M range. Our expectation is that we will restore our cash and equivalents balances in the coming quarters to levels observed at the end of the previous fiscal year.

Non-GAAP Measures and Comparative Financial Information

Aviat Networks, Inc. reports information in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"). Management of Aviat Networks monitors gross margin, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating income or loss, income tax provision or benefit, income or loss from continuing operations, basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations, adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") on a non-GAAP basis for planning and forecasting results in future periods, and may use these measures for some management compensation purposes. These measures exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses as shown on the attached Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures table. As a result, management is presenting these non-GAAP measures in addition to results reported in accordance with GAAP to better communicate underlying operational and financial performance in each period. Management believes these non-GAAP measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any given period. Management also believes that these non-GAAP measures enhance the ability of an investor to analyze trends in Aviat Networks' business and to better understand our performance.

Aviat Networks' management does not, nor does it suggest that investors should, consider such non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Aviat Networks presents such non-GAAP financial measures in reporting its financial results to provide investors with an additional tool to evaluate the Company's financial performance. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP are included in the tables below.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND REGULATION G DISCLOSURE


 

To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we provide additional measures of gross margin, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating income or loss, other income or loss, income tax provision or benefit, income or loss from continuing operations, basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations, and adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"), adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, gains and losses. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when considered together with the GAAP financial measures provide information that is useful to investors in understanding period-over-period operating results separate and apart from items that may, or could, have a disproportionate positive or negative impact on results in any particular period. We also believe these non-GAAP measures enhance the ability of investors to analyze trends in our business and to understand our performance. In addition, we may utilize non-GAAP financial measures as a guide in our forecasting, budgeting and long-term planning process and to measure operating performance for some management compensation purposes. Any analysis of non-GAAP financial measures should be used only in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP.  Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP follow.

(1) The adjustments above reconcile our GAAP financial results to the non-GAAP financial measures used by us. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation, write-off of excess and obsolete inventory, amortization of purchased technology, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, transactional tax assessments, adjustment to reflect pro forma tax rate, depreciation and amortization of property, plant and equipment and interest expense. We believe that the presentation of these non-GAAP items provides meaningful supplemental information to investors, when viewed in conjunction with, and not in lieu of, our GAAP results. However, the non-GAAP financial measures have not been prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Non-GAAP information should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Moreover, there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures.
