Feb 08, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Allot Communications, a supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers, announced its fourth quarter and year end 2012 results, with a significant increase in annual revenues.
In a release on February 5, the Company noted that on a non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation, settlement of repayment of grants to the OCS, revenue adjustment due to acquisitions, expenses related to M&A activity, deferred tax assets and amortization of certain intangibles, revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 reached $28.5 million, and non-GAAP net profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 totaled $4.6 million, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net profit of $4.2 million, or $0.15 per basic share and $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, and non-GAAP net profit of $5.1 million or $0.16 per basic share and $0.15 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012. For the full year 2012, excluding the impact of the factors mentioned above, non-GAAP revenue reached $107.1 million, compared with $77.8 million for the full year 2011, and net profit for the year reached $19.8 million, or $0.62 per basic share and $0.59 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net profit of $12.5 million, or $0.50 per basic share and $0.46 per diluted share, for the full year 2011.
The discrepancy between GAAP and non-GAAP revenues is related to the acquisitions made by the Company during the year, and represents revenues adjusted for impact of the fair value adjustment to acquired deferred revenue related to purchase accounting.
These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures.
Total GAAP revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 reached $26.4 million, a 20 percent increase from the $22.0 million of revenues reported for the fourth quarter of 2011, and a decline from the $27.8 million of revenues reported for the third quarter of 2012. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $15.1 million, or $0.46 per basic and diluted share. This compares with net profit of $3.5 million, or $0.13 per basic share and $0.12 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011, and net profit of $2.4 million, or $0.07 per basic share and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. For the full year 2012, GAAP revenues reached $104.8 million, representing a 35 percent increase over the $77.8 million of revenues in 2011. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the year 2012 was $6.7 million, or $0.21 per basic and diluted share, as compared with net profit of $8.8 million, or $0.35 per basic share and $0.33 per diluted share, in 2011.
During December 2012, the Company recorded a liability for the early payment of $15.9 million due to settlement with the Israeli Office of Chief Scientist (OCS), representing the full balance of the contingent liability related to grants received, which will be paid during the first quarter of 2013. Upon making this payment, the Company will eliminate all future royalty obligations related to its anticipated revenues and save the associated future interest payments related to such obligations, as well as entitle it to apply to a grant program with the OCS with no repayment obligations. These expenses are included in the cost of goods sold reported for the quarter.
"Allot demonstrated significant revenue growth in 2012 despite a challenging macroeconomic environment, particularly in Europe," commented Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. "With the completion of two acquisitions during the year, we now offer a comprehensive video solution to empower our customers to optimize and monetize on Over the Top ("OTT") delivery of video based content and applications. We also delivered on our promise to complete initial commercial deployments with two nationwide mobile operators in the US, in addition to our significant and growing customer base throughout the world. As we enter 2013, we believe that we have a significant funnel of worldwide opportunities and that growth in broadband traffic, applications and devices will drive the need for our products."
As of December 31, cash, cash equivalents, short term deposits and marketable securities totaled $143.1 million, with no debt.
