RADCOM Returns to Positive Momentum in Q4: Revenues of $5.2M Returns Company to Operating Profit (Non-GAAP); Strong Bookings Build Backlog to $20M Near-Record Backlog, Reduced Operating Expenses & High-Potential New Products Set Stage for Top-Line & Bottom-Line Growth in 2013
TEL-AVIV, Israel, January 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
RADCOM Ltd. (RADCOM) (NASDAQ: RDCM) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.
In $ thousands Q4 2012 Q3 2012 Revenues $5,152 $3,030 Gross margin 64.2% 57% Operating loss $(201) $(1,803) Operating income (loss) (non-GAAP) $73 $(1,677) Net loss $(332) $(1,810) Net loss (non-GAAP) $(58) $(1,684)
Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2012: Revenues for the quarter totaled $5.2 million, a 70% increase compared with $3.0 million in the third quarter. Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2011 were $7.0 million.
The strong bookings received during the quarter (with an above-1 book-to-bill ratio) enabled the Company to increase its backlog to a near-record $19.7 million. The majority of the new bookings are fast-path expansion orders initiated by existing customers with shorter time frames and more expedited sign-off terms, on average, than initial orders. This, coupled with the fact that most of the projects in the Company's backlog have now reached an advanced execution stage, improves the Company's visibility regarding its ability to deliver significant revenue growth in 2013.
The Company's net loss for the quarter was ($332,000), or ($0.05) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), reflecting the higher revenues and lower expenses, countered by financial expenses and an inventory write-off of approximately $200,000. This was a significant improvement from the Company's net loss of $(1.8 million), or $(0.28) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), recorded in the third quarter of 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $64,000, or $0.01 per share.
During the fourth quarter, the Company completed its cost reduction program. As a result, the Company was able to return to profitability on a non-GAAP operating basis, delivering non-GAAP operating income of $73,000 for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with a non-GAAP operating loss of $(1.7 million) in the third quarter of 2012. This operating income included the impact of the inventory write-off, without which the Company would have recorded non-GAAP operating income of more than $250,000.
On a non-GAAP basis, the Company achieved near-break-even with a net loss of $(58,000), or ($0.01) per ordinary share (basic and diluted) for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared with $(1.7 million), or $(0.26) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter of 2012, and a net income of $268,000, or $0.o4 per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2011.
Comments of Management
Commenting on the results, David Ripstein, RADCOM's CEO, said, "We are pleased to report that we have returned to significant forward momentum, with our results benefitting from the market's strong need for Customer Experience solutions in an era of unprecedented network congestion."
"The quarter was another period of exceedingly strong bookings, especially from existing Tier-One customers, who have already received significant value from our Customer Experience solutions. In fact, we now have an active customer base of over 60 customers, many of whom continue to build new capabilities into their RADCOM deployments as they roll out new LTE networks and next-generation services. We are particularly excited by their initial reaction to our new QiSolve offering, a powerful SON (Self Organizing Network)-type solution that automatically identifies cell congestion in real time and intelligently helps to optimize network efficiency. This emerging market area has recently received confirmation through a major acquisition carried out by one of the industry's largest networks players, and we believe it can become a future growth driver to RADCOM as well."
Mr. Ripstein continued, "Equally important, our business continues to migrate to quality. With a higher proportion of sales from top-tier and repeat customers, we have been able to achieve better payment terms on average, and to accelerate the revenue recognition process in many cases. This, together with the cost reductions that we have achieved over the past three quarters, enables us to project accelerated growth in the year to come."
"As such, we are very optimistic as we move into 2013. With a near-record backlog, high-potential new products, stronger-than-ever interest in our solutions, a smooth-working global organization and a lean operating model, we are positioned to generate significant top-line and bottom-line growth in 2013 and beyond."
Results for the Full Year 2012: For the full year 2012, the Company's revenues totaled $15.8 million compared with $22.0 million for 2011. The decline reflected the effect of the market slowdown on the Company's performance throughout 2012, countered partially by its return to growth during the fourth quarter.
The Company reported a net loss for 2012 of $(6.0 million), or $(o.93) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), compared with $(1.9 million), or $(o.30) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for 2011. Non-GAAP net loss for 2012 was $(5.3 million), or $(0.83) per diluted share, compared with $(1.1 million), or ($(0.17) diluted per share for 2011.
The Company revised its operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, reducing the revenues related primarily to a sale to a distributor which was subsequently put on hold by the distributor's end-customer for reasons unrelated to RADCOM. The effect of the adjustment was to reduce the revenue for the first quarter of the year by $1.4 million to $4.2 million and to increase the period's net loss by $1.2 million to $2.0 million. All comparative information in this release is on a revised basis.
