Aviat Networks Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), the leading expert in microwave networking solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended December 28, 2012.

Financial Highlights for Q2FY13

  • Revenue for the quarter exceeded the top-end of the Company's guidance range at $129.0 million
  • Orders greater than revenue
  • GAAP Gross Margin of 30.0%; Non-GAAP Gross Margin was within the guidance range at 30.2%
  • GAAP Operating Expense of $33.8 million; Non-GAAP Operating Expense was within the guidance range at $31.8 million
  • GAAP Net Loss including discontinued operations was $(5.3) million or $(0.09) per share; Non-GAAP Net Income from continuing operations of $6.5 million or $0.11 per diluted share

GAAP Financial Results

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2013, revenue was $129.0 million, compared with $105.0 million in the year-ago quarter. The Company reported net loss, including discontinued operations, of $(5.3) million or $(0.09) per share, compared with a net loss of $(12.8) million or $(0.22) per share in the year-ago quarter. Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(5.0) million or $(0.08) per diluted share, compared with the loss from continuing operations of $(10.0) million or $(0.17) per share in the year-ago quarter. Revenue and results of operations from our WiMAX business are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Cash and cash equivalents were $94.8 million as of December 28, 2012 compared with $85.1 million as of the end of the prior quarter. The increase in cash was primarily due to strong collections of customer receivables.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Non-GAAP income from continuing operations for the quarter was $6.5 million or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $0.3 million, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted EBITDA was $8.7 million compared with $1.5 million in the year ago period.

The second quarter of fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluded $2.3 million of pre-tax charges composed primarily of the following:

  • $1.8 million for share-based compensation expense
  • $0.3 million for amortization of purchased intangibles
  • $0.2 million of restructuring charges

The second quarter of fiscal year 2013 non-GAAP income from continuing operations excluded an income tax provision of $9.2 million, which was primarily attributable to a $9.9 million income tax reserve for uncertain tax positions. Loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes was $(0.3) million for the quarter.  Adjusted EBITDA excluded $1.3 million for depreciation and amortization on property, plant and equipment, $0.2 million for interest expense, $9.9 million for income taxes provision, and non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments as set forth above from GAAP income from continuing operations. 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.

Second Quarter Revenue by Region

Revenue in the North America region was $41.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with $44.2 million in the year-ago quarter and $38.7 million in the prior quarter. International revenue was $87.6 million, compared with $60.8 million in the year ago quarter and $76.3 million in the prior quarter.

"We had a seasonally great fiscal second quarter across our key operating metrics driven by strength in Africa and continued solid performance in North America," said Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "I am confident we are making the right moves to profitably expand our business and enhance shareholder value."

Outlook

Based on current trends, the third quarter of fiscal 2013 revenue outlook range is $115 million - $121 million. Non-GAAP income from continuing operations is expected to be in the range of $0.02 - $0.06 per diluted share.

The Company anticipates good cash collections in the third fiscal quarter of 2013.  However, in view of the very strong collection performance in the fiscal second quarter, the Company anticipates a possible decline in cash and cash equivalents in the fiscal third quarter of 2013.

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 ("adjusted 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 ("Adjusted EBITDA"), adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, gains and losses, as set forth below. 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 income or loss from continuing operations excluded share-based compensation, write-off of excess and obsolete inventory, amortization of purchased technology, amortization of intangible assets, goodwill impairment charges, restructuring charges, transactional tax assessments, and adjustment to reflect pro forma tax rate. Adjusted EBITDA was determined by excluding depreciation and amortization on property, plant and equipment, interest expense, provision for income taxes, and non-GAAP pre-tax adjustments, as set forth above, from the GAAP income from continuing operations. 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.
