Aviat Networks Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aviat Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNW), a leading expert in wireless transmission solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, which ended December 30, 2011.

Financial Highlights for Q2FY12

For the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, revenue was $105.0 million, compared with $115.3 million 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 $84.3 million as of December 30, 2011 compared with $87.6 million as of the end of the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP income from continuing operations for the quarter was $0.3 million or $0.00 per share, compared with a non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $2.4 million, or $0.04 per share, in the year ago quarter.  

The second quarter of fiscal year 2012 non-GAAP results exclude $9.5 million of pre-tax charges composed primarily of the following:

  • $5.6 million of goodwill impairment charges
  • $0.9 million write-off of deferred inventory costs associated with a legacy product line
  • $1.3 million for share-based compensation expense
  • $0.8 million for the amortization of purchased intangibles

The second quarter of fiscal year 2012 non-GAAP results also exclude an income tax provision of $0.8 million. Loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes was $2.8 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.

Second Quarter Revenue by Segment (excluding discontinued operations)

Revenue in the North America segment was $44.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012, compared with $40.3 million in the year ago quarter and $37.1 million in the prior quarter.  International revenue was $60.8 million, compared with $75.0 million in the year ago quarter and $74.3 million in the prior quarter.

"We are pleased with another solid quarter across the board," said Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks.

Given the progress and momentum we have made in meeting our commitments in the first half of our fiscal year 2012, we are confident that we are on track to meet our key objectives during the remainder of this year."

Outlook

Based on current trends, the third fiscal quarter revenue outlook range is $100 to $110 million.  Gross margins in the quarter are expected to be in the range of 29.5% — 30.5%. Operating expenses should run in the $31.5M - $32.5M range and cash flow should be in the range of -$2M to +$2M.

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 and basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations 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 our 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, and basic and diluted income or loss per share from continuing operations, 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.

Notes to Table 4:


(1)

In the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the WiMAX business met the criteria to be considered held for sale. Beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, the results of the WiMAX business are presented as a discontinued operation in our consolidated financial statements. Prior year period results have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.


(2)

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 deferred inventory and excess and obsolete inventory, amortization of purchased technology, amortization of intangible assets, goodwill impairment charges, restructuring charges, loss on sale of NetBoss assets, transactional tax assessments and adjustment to reflect zero percent pro forma tax rate. 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.
