Harmonic Inc. logo

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harmonic Inc. (Nasdaq:HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, announced today its preliminary and unaudited results for the first quarter of 2014.

Net revenue for the first quarter of 2014 was $108.0 million, compared with $120.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 and $101.7 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Bookings for the first quarter of 2014 were $126.3 million, compared with $113.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2013 and $110.1 million for the first quarter of 2013.

Total backlog and deferred revenue was $126.4 million as of March 28, 2014, compared to $114.0 million as of December 31, 2013.

GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 was $5.4 million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the fourth quarter of 2013 of $2.2 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, and a GAAP net loss of $9.5 million from continuing operations, or $(0.08) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 was $2.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $8.3 million from continuing operations, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2013, and a non-GAAP net loss of $2.7 million from continuing operations, or $(0.02) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2013. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

GAAP gross margin was 48.4% and GAAP operating margin was (6.7)% for the first quarter of 2014, compared with 49.6% and (0.8)%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2013, and 45.4% and (14.6)%, respectively, for the same period in 2013.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 53.3% and non-GAAP operating margin was 3.2% for the first quarter of 2014, compared with 54.3% and 8.9%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2013, and 51.0% and (3.3)%, respectively, for the same period in 2013. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $147.7 million at the end of the first quarter of 2014, down $22.9 million from $170.6 million as of the end of the prior quarter. In the first quarter of 2014, the Company generated approximately $11.2 million of cash from operations, and used approximately $29.1 million to repurchase approximately 4.4 million shares of common stock under its share repurchase program.

"Our first quarter results reflect increased demand in the US, offset by softer performance in Europe," said Patrick Harshman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Bookings grew 15% year-on-year, and an improved margin trend across all products drove blended gross margin above our expected range. We also made significant progress on our buyback program, purchasing 4.4 million shares, or approximately 4.5%, of Harmonic's stock."

"Looking ahead, our book-to-bill is indicative of the early momentum we're seeing in our next generation cable edge and video processing platforms. Converged Cable Access (CCAP), Ultra HD, HEVC and multiscreen remain promising initiatives for the company, and we believe our recent introduction of the VOS virtualized media processing software platform further extends our leadership position as the industry prepares itself to commence deployments of these exciting new technologies."

Today, Harmonic also announced it will hold its Investor and Analyst Conference at NASDAQ MarketSite, 4 Times Square in New York City on Thursday, May 15, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. ET. The meeting is open to all interested investors and analysts.

These risks include the possibility, in no particular order, that: the trends toward more high-definition, on-demand and anytime, anywhere video will not continue to develop at its current pace or will expire; the possibility that our products will not generate sales that are commensurate with our expectations or that our cost of revenue or operating expenses may exceed our expectations; the mix of products and services sold in various geographies and the effect it has on gross margins; delays or decreases in capital spending in the cable, satellite and telco and broadcast and media industries; customer concentration and consolidation; the impact of general economic conditions on our sales and operations; our ability to develop new and enhanced products in a timely manner and market acceptance of our new or existing products; losses of one or more key customers; risks associated with our international operations, including in Ukraine; risks associated with our CCAP product initiative, dependence on market acceptance of several broadband services, on the adoption of new broadband technologies and on broadband industry trends; inventory management; the lack of timely availability of parts or raw materials necessary to produce our products; the impact of increases in the prices of raw materials and oil; the effect of competition, on both revenue and gross margins; difficulties associated with rapid technological changes in our markets; risks associated with unpredictable sales cycles; our dependence on contract manufacturers and sole or limited source suppliers; the effect on our business of natural disasters; and the risk that our share repurchase program will not continue to result in material purchases of our common stock.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In establishing operating budgets, managing its business performance, and setting internal measurement targets, we exclude a number of items required by GAAP. Management believes that these accounting charges and credits, most of which are non-cash or non-recurring in nature, are not useful in managing its operations and business. Historically, the Company has also publicly presented these supplemental non-GAAP measures in order to assist the investment community to see the Company "through the eyes of management," and thereby enhance understanding of its operating performance. The non-GAAP measures presented here are gross margin, operating expenses, income (loss) from operations and net income (loss) (including those amounts as a percentage of revenue), and net income (loss) per diluted share. The presentation of non-GAAP information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP results published by other companies. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable historical GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements provided with this press release. The non-GAAP adjustments described below have historically been excluded from our GAAP financial measures. These adjustments are restructuring and related charges and non-cash items, such as stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, and adjustments that normalize the tax rate. With respect to our expectations under "Business Outlook" above, reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges which are excluded from these non-GAAP measures. The effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to common stock options are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results.
