Harmonic Announces Third Quarter 2014 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harmonic Inc. (Nasdaq:HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, announced today its preliminary and unaudited results for the third quarter of 2014.

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was $108.1 million, compared with $109.6 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $122.9 million for the third quarter of 2013.

Bookings for the third quarter of 2014 were $97.8 million, compared with $113.4 million for the second quarter of 2014 and $115.9 million for the third quarter of 2013.

Total backlog and deferred revenue was $116.6 million as of September 26, 2014, compared to $132.1 million as of June 27, 2014.

GAAP net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 was $1.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 of $37.1 million, or $(0.39) per diluted share, and a GAAP net income of $36.7 million from continuing operations, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013. The net tax (benefit) provision recorded in the third and second quarter of 2014 and the third quarter of 2013 was ($4.8) million, $28.4 million and ($39.0) million, respectively. In the third and second quarter of 2014, the Company recorded additional valuation allowances of $4.2 million and $24.5 million, respectively, as a result of a history of operating losses in recent years that has led to uncertainty with respect to the Company's ability to utilize certain of its net deferred tax assets. The Company also recorded in the third quarter of 2014 and 2013 net tax benefits of $8.5 million and $38.4 million, respectively, associated with the release of tax reserves for uncertain tax positions as a result of the expiration of statutes of limitations.

Non-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2014 was $5.1 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $1.8 million from continuing operations, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014, and a non-GAAP net income of $7.1 million from continuing operations, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2013. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

GAAP gross margin was 49.4% and GAAP operating margin was (3.3)% for the third quarter of 2014, compared with 45.5% and (7.9)%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2014, and 46.2% and (2.1)%, respectively, for the same period in 2013.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 53.6% and non-GAAP operating margin was 6.2% for the third quarter of 2014, compared with 50.1% and 2.2%, respectively, for the second quarter of 2014, and 50.8% and 7.1%, 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 $97.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2014, down $37.2 million from $134.4 million at the end of the prior quarter. In the third quarter of 2014, the Company generated approximately $0.7 million of cash from operations, and used approximately $31.7 million to repurchase approximately 4.9 million shares of common stock under its share repurchase program.

"The third quarter played out as expected. Despite difficult market conditions, we executed well and our video business improved modestly led by our Broadcast and Media vertical, while our cable edge products continue to demonstrate strong year-over-year growth," said Patrick Harshman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Nevertheless, the softening macro-economic and heightened geopolitical climates within several EMEA geographies, paired with customer consolidation activities delaying certain projects, have led to a more cautious near-term outlook. Looking beyond these turbulent market conditions, we're encouraged by our competitive position in our new product categories, evidenced by our gross margin expansion and the growing sales pipeline of our new virtualized video processing and CCAP platforms. This strategic progress, coupled with our Q3 purchase of over 5% of Harmonic's stock and our continued careful management of expenses, positions us to deliver strong earnings growth in the quarters ahead."

Business Outlook

For the fourth quarter of 2014, Harmonic anticipates:

  • Net revenue in the range of $96 million to $106 million
  • GAAP gross margins in the range of 49.0% to 50.0%
  • GAAP operating expenses in the range of $56 million to $57 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margins in the range of 52.5% to 53.5%
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses in the range of $50 million to $51 million

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.
