Ixia Announces Second Quarter Financial Results

Ixia Announces Second Quarter Financial Results

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) today reported its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Total revenue for the 2013 second quarter grew 28% to $115.9 million, compared with $90.7 million reported for the 2012 second quarter. The 2013 second quarter includes $33.2 million in revenue from the recent acquisitions of Anue Systems, Inc. ("Anue") and BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. ("BreakingPoint"), which closed in June and August 2012, respectively.

On a GAAP basis, the company recorded net income for the 2013 second quarter of $3.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with net income of $25.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, for the 2012 second quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the 2013 second quarter was $14.5 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $12.9 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the 2012 second quarter.

Additional non-GAAP information and a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the 2013 and 2012 second quarters and year-to-date periods may be found in the attached financial tables.

"Although revenue for our core products was lower than anticipated due to order delays from our Service Provider and network equipment manufacturer customers, we made solid progress on our key growth initiatives," commented Vic Alston, Ixia's president and chief executive officer. "Anue and BreakingPoint revenue surpassed expectations and grew to $33.2 million, our revenue from enterprise customers increased by nearly 50 percent compared to last year and we added several new channel and technology partners."

Alston continued, "Our customers are rapidly moving to mobile networks, virtual data centers and hybrid cloud environments to deliver next generation applications and provide their customers with the always-on user experience. While we have seen recent softness in the market, our visibility, mobility, and security solutions uniquely position Ixia to benefit from some of today's strongest trends in networking and deliver long-term growth."

Ixia ended the 2013 second quarter with approximately $234 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments, compared with $208 million at March 31, 2013.

We are in the process of reviewing and finalizing our GAAP tax provision for the 2013 second quarter, and as a result, our GAAP net income is subject to change and may potentially be reduced by up to $3.3 million. We do not anticipate any changes in our non-GAAP results.

Non-GAAP Information

To supplement our consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), we have included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release and in the attachments hereto. Specifically, we have provided non-GAAP financial measures (i.e., non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share) that exclude certain non-cash and/or non-recurring income and expense items such as proceeds and expenses from certain legal and contractual settlements, realized gains for the sale of certain of our auction rate securities, expenses incurred in connection with our restatement of certain previously filed financial statements, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition and other related costs, restructuring expenses, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and the related income tax effects of these items, as well as certain other non-cash income tax impacts such as changes in the valuation allowance recorded against certain deferred tax assets. The aforementioned items represent income and expense items that may be difficult to estimate from period to period and/or that we believe are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of our business operations. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our financial performance. We believe that by excluding these items, our non-GAAP measures provide supplemental information to both management and investors that is useful in assessing our core operating performance, in evaluating our ongoing business operations and in comparing our results of operations on a consistent basis from period to period. These non-GAAP financial measures are also used by management to plan and forecast future periods and to assist in making operating and strategic decisions. The presentation of this additional information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP. The information therefore may not necessarily be comparable to that of other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures which are included below in the attached financial tables.
