Ikanos Communications, Inc. (
"We achieved fourth quarter revenue and gross profits near the mid-range of our guidance, with revenue of $17.6 million and a GAAP gross profit of 50%, while recording operating expenses of $17.1 million, near the low end of our guidance," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "During the quarter, we completed a successful secondary offering that raised net proceeds of $24.0 million and continued to effectively manage our business and cash position, with cash totaling approximately $39.5 million at year end."
Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, said, "Fiscal 2013 was a transition year for Ikanos. As our revenue mix shifted towards new products, delays in several new customer product ramps, compounded by the unfavorable dynamics in certain maturing markets, resulted in lower overall revenues. While we navigate through these transitions, we continue to expand our design win pipeline and remain committed to investing in next-generation technology and products. We launched Velocity-Uni, expanded our product portfolio with the rollout of our industry-leading inSIGHT Broadband eXperience Manager, and further demonstrated our technology leadership through the introduction of Neos, our next-generation G.fast architecture."
"We successfully completed several carrier and OEM lab trials for both Velocity-3 and inSIGHT in 2013, paving the way for field trials and market deployments later this year. In addition, with the recent introduction of our latest home gateway processor line, the Fusiv® Vx500 family, at CES, we are well positioned to expand our footprint inside the home, not only for DSL gateways, but also for multi-mode gateways supporting any broadband access technology," concluded Mr. Tahernia.
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP gross profits and non-GAAP operating expenses, where applicable, exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges and the amortization of intangible assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.
