  • Revenue of $10.2 million
  • GAAP net loss of $(12.0) million, or $(0.77) per share
  • Ending cash and cash equivalents of $13.0 million

Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the connected home, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2015, ended March 29, 2015.

"First quarter revenue was $10.2 million, with a GAAP gross profit of 49%, which due to a favorable product mix exceeded our gross-profit guidance," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "During the first quarter, we worked to manage our business and cash position, with operating expenses of $16.8 million, and the completion of a common stock rights offering in which the Company raised approximately $12.4 million, before expenses, resulting in a cash and short-term investments of $13.0 million at the end of the first quarter." Bencala continued, "We also signed the definitive collaboration agreement with Alcatel-Lucent after the quarter closed, allowing us to draw down on the previously agreed-to $10 million loan."

"I'm pleased to report significant progress in executing our gigabit strategy. We are on track for second-generation G.fast product sample availability to alpha customers in the third quarter," said Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos. "In addition, we achieved a significant milestone in Japan and Korea, establishing Ikanos as the only company that has demonstrated over 1 gigabit performance on copper at a distance of 100 meters in OEM lab testing."

Tahernia continued, "While the majority of our R&D investment is focused on successful execution of our gigabit strategy, we are also putting significant effort into driving revenue ramp with key customers rolling out new products this year, based on our Vx500 gateway processors, Velocity-3 in China, and inSIGHT software. In the last two years, we have gained significant design win momentum, increasing the life-time value of our design win pipeline by a factor of 10 from 2013 to 2014. We continued this momentum last quarter by securing two additional gateway opportunities. In addition, as already announced, we have extended the capabilities of our inSIGHT analytics beyond copper networks, thereby significantly expanding inSIGHT's market opportunity to cover all broadband access. This includes cable and mobile operators, as well as residential fiber deployments." Tahernia concluded, "While our short-term revenue outlook remains stable, we are optimistic about our future revenue trends, based on new customers' progress towards production ramp later this year, our established leadership and eco-system partnerships in ultra-broadband, and the significant market interest in our gigabit products and strategy."

Financial Details
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 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.
