Revenue and results of operations from our WiMAX business are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Loss from continuing operations for the quarter was $(1.0) million or $(0.02) per share, compared with the loss from continuing operations of $(6.3) million or $(0.11) per share in the year-ago quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents were $96.0 million as of June 29, 2012 compared with $90.5 million as of the end of the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

Non-GAAP income from continuing operations for the quarter was $1.2 million or $0.02 per share, compared with a non-GAAP income from continuing operations of $2.8 million, or $0.05 per share, in the year-ago quarter.

The fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 non-GAAP results excluded $2.6 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
  • $0.9 million of restructuring charges

The fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 non-GAAP results also excluded an income tax benefit of $0.4 million. Loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes was $0.3 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.

Fourth Quarter Revenue by Region

Revenue in the North America region was $40.7 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, compared with $42.2 million in the year-ago quarter and $42.6 million in the prior quarter. International revenue was $75.3 million, compared with $78.7 million in the year ago quarter and $69.0 million in the prior quarter.

"We are now at the inflection point of our business strategy.  We have an improved financial model and with restructuring largely behind us, we are seeing the potential to more consistently generate cash and non-GAAP profitability," said Michael Pangia, president and CEO, Aviat Networks. "As we move into our new fiscal year, we will enhance our value proposition with the continued rollout of additional new products and remain focused on increasing shareholder value."

Outlook

Based on current trends, the first quarter of fiscal 2013 revenue outlook range is $111M-$116M. Gross margins in the quarter are expected to be in the range of 29.0%-30.0% and non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be in the $31.0-$32.0M range.   Cash balances are estimated to increase modestly in the quarter.

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.

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, rebranding and transitional services, NetBoss bad debt expenses, amortization of intangible assets, goodwill impairment charges, restructuring charges, loss on sale of NetBoss assets, transactional tax assessments, adjustment to reflect zero percent pro forma tax rate, depreciation and amortization of property, plant and equipment and capitalized software 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.
