(NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, today reported continued improvement in its quarterly results with the announcement of its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009.
Total revenues for the third quarter of 2009 reached $10.8 million, a 10% increase from the $9.8 million of revenues reported in the third quarter of 2008 and an 8% increase from the $10.0 million of revenues reported in the second quarter of 2009. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the third quarter of 2009 was $2.3 million, or $0.10 per share (basic and diluted). This compares with a net loss of $9.0 million, or $0.41 per share (basic and diluted), in the third quarter of 2008, and a net loss of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share (basic and diluted), in the second quarter of 2009.
On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation, auction-rate securities (ARS) devaluation, certain legal expenses and amortization of acquired core technology, net loss for the third quarter of
2009 totaled $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share (basic and diluted), as compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter of 2008 and a non-GAAP net loss of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), for the second quarter of 2009. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. A full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP net loss is provided in the accompanying Table 2. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating
