Results of Operations
Revenues: Total revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $186.1 million, a 1% increase when compared to revenues of $183.9 million for the second quarter of 2012, and a 3% increase when compared to $180.6 million for the first quarter of 2013. Revenues for the second quarter of 2013 reflect the first full quarter impact of the pricing adjustments associated with both the Comcast and Time Warner contract extensions. This was offset by increased software and services revenues, which contributed to the increases in overall total revenues.
Non-GAAP Results: Non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2013 was $30.4 million, or 16.3%of total revenues, compared to $33.1 million, or 18.0%, for the second quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2013 was $27.6 million, or 15.3% of total revenues. The year-over-year decrease in operating income and operating income margin reflects the impact of the Comcast and Time Warner pricing adjustments. The sequential quarterly increase can be attributed to the increased software and services revenues generated during the second quarter of 2013 when compared to the first quarter of 2013, as mentioned above.
Non-GAAP EPS for the second quarter of 2013 was $0.57, relatively consistent when compared to non-GAAP EPS of $0.56 for the second quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP EPS for the first quarter of 2013 was $0.48, with the sequential improvement a result of higher software and services revenues in the second quarter of 2013.
GAAP Results: GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2013 was $21.7 million, or 11.6%of total revenues, compared to $23.7 million, or 12.9%, for the same period in 2012.
GAAP EPS for the second quarter of 2013 was $0.37, consistent with that of the second quarter of 2012.
