Harmonic Announces First Quarter 2015 Results

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/15 -- Harmonic Inc.(NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, announced today its preliminary and unaudited results for the first quarter of 2015.

Net revenue for the first quarter of 2015 was $104.0 million, compared with $107.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $108.0 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Bookings for the first quarter of 2015 were $97.3 million, compared with $121.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014 and $126.3 million for the first quarter of 2014.

Total backlog and deferred revenue was $122.2 million as of April 3, 2015, compared to $128.7 million as of December 31, 2014.

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2015 was $(2.7) million, or $(0.03) per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2014 of $(4.9) million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, and a GAAP net loss of $(5.4) million, or $(0.06) per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $4.5 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2014 of $5.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, and a non-GAAP net income of $2.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

GAAP gross margin was 52.9% and GAAP operating margin was 0.01% for the first quarter of 2015, compared with 52.6% and (2.0)%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2014, and 48.4% and (6.7)%, respectively, for the same period in 2014.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 53.9% and non-GAAP operating margin was 5.9% for the first quarter of 2015, compared with 54.1% and 6.2%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2014, and 53.3% and 3.2%, respectively, for the same period in 2014. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" below.

Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $101.9 million at the end of the first quarter of 2015, down $3.0 million from $104.9 million at the end of the prior quarter. In the first quarter of 2015, the Company generated approximately $2.0 million of cash from operations, and used approximately $5.2 million to repurchase approximately 0.7 million shares of common stock under its share repurchase program.

"Highlights of the quarter included record Cable Edge business revenue, 54% gross margin and $0.05 non-GAAP earnings per share, up 67% from a year ago," said Patrick Harshman, President and CEO of Harmonic. "Video business revenue was soft, as video service provider customers continued to pause spending in advance of major technology and business model transitions. The good news is that Harmonic is out in front on these transitions, and secured several tier one service provider wins with our latest virtualized video technology. Looking ahead, we see good opportunities to capture more Video market share during this period of industry change while also continuing to drive growth in our Cable Edge business, and we remain focused on both earnings growth and enhanced shareholder value."

Business Outlook

For the second quarter of 2015, Harmonic anticipates:

  • Net revenue in the range of $97 million to $107 million
  • GAAP gross margins in the range of 51.0% to 52.0%
  • GAAP operating expenses in the range of $55 million to $56 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margins in the range of 52.0% to 53.0%
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses in the range of $49.5 million to $50.5 million

Legal Notice Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including statements related to our expectations regarding: our final results for the first quarter ended April 3, 2015 and our expectations concerning quarter-on-quarter growth; and net revenue, GAAP gross margins, GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP gross margins and non-GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter of 2015. Our expectations regarding these matters may not materialize, and actual results in future periods are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. These risks include, in no particular order, the following: the trends toward more high-definition, on-demand and anytime, anywhere video will not continue to develop at its current pace or will expire; a strong U.S. dollar may have a negative impact on our business in certain international markets; the possibility that our products will not generate sales that are commensurate with our expectations or that our cost of revenue or operating expenses may exceed our expectations; the mix of products and services sold in various geographies and the effect it has on gross margins; delays or decreases in capital spending in the cable, satellite and telco and broadcast and media industries; customer concentration and consolidation; the impact of general economic conditions on our sales and operations; our ability to develop new and enhanced products in a timely manner and market acceptance of our new or existing products; losses of one or more key customers; risks associated with our international operations, including in Ukraine; risks associated with our CCAP and VOS™ product initiatives, dependence on market acceptance of various types of broadband services, on the adoption of new broadband technologies and on broadband industry trends; inventory management; the lack of timely availability of parts or raw materials necessary to produce our products; the impact of increases in the prices of raw materials and oil; the effect of competition, on both revenue and gross margins; difficulties associated with rapid technological changes in our markets; risks associated with unpredictable sales cycles; our dependence on contract manufacturers and sole or limited source suppliers; the effect on our business of natural disasters; and the risk that our share repurchase program will not continue to result in material purchases of our common stock. The forward-looking statements contained in this press release are also subject to other risks and uncertainties, including those more fully described in Harmonic's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and our Current Reports on Form 8-K. The forward-looking statements in this press release are based on information available to the Company as of the date hereof, and Harmonic disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In establishing operating budgets, managing its business performance, and setting internal measurement targets, we exclude a number of items required by GAAP. Management believes that these accounting charges and credits, most of which are non-cash or non-recurring in nature, are not useful in managing its operations and business. Historically, the Company has also publicly presented these supplemental non-GAAP measures in order to assist the investment community to see the Company "through the eyes of management," and thereby enhance understanding of its operating performance. The non-GAAP measures presented here are: gross profit, operating expenses, income (loss) from operations and net income (loss) (including those amounts as a percentage of revenue), and net income (loss) per diluted share. The presentation of non-GAAP information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP results published by other companies. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable historical GAAP financial measures is included with the financial statements provided with this press release. The non-GAAP adjustments described below have historically been excluded from our GAAP financial measures. These adjustments are restructuring and related charges, impairment of long-term investment and non-cash items, such as stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, and adjustments that normalize the tax rate. With respect to our expectations under "Business Outlook" above, reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges which are excluded from these non-GAAP measures. The effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to common stock options are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results.
