(NASDAQ: ALLT), a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile broadband service providers worldwide, today announced that sales and profitability continued to increase during the fourth quarter of 2010, and that the Company was profitable for the year 2010 on a non-GAAP basis.
Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2010 reached $16.2 million, a 41% increase from the $11.5 million of revenues reported for the fourth quarter of 2009, and a 10% increase from the $14.7 million of revenues reported for the third quarter of 2010. On a GAAP basis, net profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.3 million, or $0.06 per basic share and $0.05 per diluted share. This compares with a net loss of $1.5 million, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), in the fourth quarter of 2009, and net income of $0.8 million, or $0.03 per share (basic and diluted), in the third quarter of 2010. For the full year 2010, revenues reached $57 million, representing a 36% increase over the $41.8 million of revenues in 2009. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the year 2010 was $5.8 million, or $0.25 per share (basic and diluted), as compared with a net loss of $7.7 million, or $0.35 per share (basic and diluted), in 2009.
On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation and amortization of certain intangibles, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 totaled $1.8 million, or $0.08 per basic share and $0.07 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $19,000, or $0.00 per share (basic and diluted), for the fourth quarter of 2009, and non-GAAP income $1.3 million or $0.06 per basic share and $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2010.
These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results are provided in the accompanying Tables 2 and 3. 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.
“2010 was a significant year for Allot, during which we combined solid revenue growth with steadily increasing profitability," commented Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. “During the year we firmly established our Company as the leader in the fast-growing mobile data market, which now constitutes approximately 40% of our total sales. Along with continued success in the fixed-line market, the large, successful Tier-1 deployments we have undertaken are a testimony to the robustness of our solutions to meet the rapidly increasing demand for bandwidth-intensive data applications.”
Recently, the Company achieved the following significant goals:
- Received an initial order from a Tier 1 operator in EMEA with over 15 million subscribers, which operates both fixed and wireless networks;
- Received an expansion order from a Tier 1 cable operator in EMEA;
