Hod Hasharon, ISRAEL – August 12, 2009 – Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, today reported a continued improvement in its quarterly results with the announcement of its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2009.
Total revenues for the second quarter of 2009 reached $10.0 million, a 6% increase from the $9.5 million of revenues reported in the second quarter of 2008 and a 7% increase from the $9.4 million of revenues reported for the first quarter of 2009. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the second quarter of 2009 was $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share (basic and diluted). This compares with a net loss of $3.8 million, or $0.17 per share (basic and diluted), in the second quarter of 2008, and a net loss of $2.9 million, or $0.13 per share (basic and diluted), in the first 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 second quarter of 2009 totaled $0.4 million, or $0.02 per share (basic and diluted), as compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.04 per share (basic and diluted), for the first quarter of 2009 and a non-GAAP net loss of $1.9 million, or $0.09 per share (basic and diluted), for the second quarter of 2008. 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 performance.
"While we continue to grow in the traditional service provider market, the primary growth engine we are currently seeing is in the mobile market, which was highlighted by our signing a frame agreement towards the end of the quarter with a global Tier 1 mobile operator group, which led to initial orders of approximately $5 million to date," commented Allot President and CEO Rami Hadar. "A study we published recently demonstrates the significant
growth in mobile data traffic, and the need for Allot's solution to enable service providers to manage their networks in the short term, while providing them with the means to drive additional revenues from their networks going forward.
"We are pleased with our continued sales growth in the quarter, highlighted by the record sales we achieved. Coupled with our strong cash position, we believe that we are well positioned to meet the growing opportunities in our target markets," concluded Hadar.
Recently, the Company achieved the following significant goals:
- More than 20 service providers worldwide using the Service Gateway platform;
- During the quarter, concluded 15 large deals with service providers, of which 6 represented new customers and 9 represented expansion deals;
- Release of the MediaSwift as part of the Company's value added services offering.
As of June 30, 2009, cash, cash equivalents, deposits and investments in marketable securities totaled $54.8 million. Recent external valuations showed an increase in value of certain ARS in the Company's portfolio as of the end of the second quarter. As a result, the Company recorded an unrealized net gain of $1.2 million to the other comprehensive income in its shareholders' equity, leaving the Company with a total of $15.4 million in ARS at the end of the quarter. To date, our ARS have paid all their interest payments.
