Aviat Networks Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Revenue Above Guidance; Improvement Plans on Track

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: AVNW), a leading expert in wireless transmission solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter fiscal year 2011, which ended December 31, 2010.

Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $124.2 million, compared with $122.6 million in the year ago period.  Net loss was $12.5 million, or $(0.21) per share, compared with a net loss of $7.9 million, or $(0.13) per share, in the year ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents were $102.4 million as of December 31, 2010, compared with $107.8 million as of the end of the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was breakeven or $0.00 per share, compared with a non-GAAP net income of $0.8 million, or $0.01 per share, in the year ago quarter.  

Non-GAAP results for the quarter exclude $7.2 million of pre-tax charges primarily composed of the following:

  • $4.0 million of restructuring charges and rebranding costs
  • $0.5 million for the loss on the sale of the NetBoss assets
  • $1.3 million for share-based compensation expense
  • $0.8 million for the amortization of purchased intangibles

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures for the quarter and year-to-date comparison with the year ago periods is provided on Table 4 and Table 5 along with the accompanying notes.

Second Quarter Revenue by Segment

Revenue in the North America segment was $40.4 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with $49.4 million in the year ago period.  International revenue was $83.8 million, compared with $73.2 million in the year ago period.

Business Highlights

The Company is progressing through its restructuring and strategic plans previously announced in Q1.  During the quarter, the Company:

  • Reduced headcount consistent with its restructuring plan
  • Announced release of new high capacity Ethernet switching and aggregation for the Eclipse radio platform
  • Announced release of a new ultra-high capacity IP product, the WTM 6000, a 4GB/s trunking system
  • Provided end-of-life notifications for legacy products
  • Significantly resolved supply chain issues from prior quarters

"Aviat Networks made significant progress in its restructuring efforts during the second quarter FY11.  Shipments increased substantially, resulting in revenue growth for the first time in several quarters.  In addition, as the transition of our internal operations accelerated, cash usage was significantly less than projected.  The rate at which we are implementing changes gives us confidence we can complete our previously announced restructuring on schedule by the end of the third quarter of FY11," said Chuck Kissner, chairman and CEO, Aviat Networks. "We are enthusiastic about the release of several new products, both those announced in Q2 and those which we anticipate announcing soon.  These new products, together with a reduced cost base, will position Aviat Networks for long-term growth and a more effective financial model."

Third Fiscal Quarter 2011 Outlook

Based on current backlog, business trends and operational changes, we believe revenue will be in the range of $115 million to $125 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

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 revenues, cost of product sales and services, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating income or loss, tax expense or benefit, net income or loss, and net income or loss per share 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 and gains as shown on the attached GAAP reconciliation 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.

Quarter and Two Quarters Ended December 31, 2010 Summaries
RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES AND REGULATION G DISCLOSURE


To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), we provide additional measures of revenue, cost of product sales and services, gross margin, research and development expenses, selling and administrative expenses, operating loss, loss before income taxes, income taxes, net loss, and net loss per basic and diluted share adjusted to exclude certain costs, charges, gains and losses. Aviat Networks, Inc. ("we" or "our") believes 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. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures with the most directly comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP follows.
