SAN JOSE, Calif.-January 28, 2014-Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT), the worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, announced today its preliminary and unaudited results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.

On March 5, 2013, Harmonic completed the sale of its Cable Access HFC business and, accordingly, the following pertains only to its continuing operations.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $120.2 million, compared with $122.9 million for the third quarter of 2013 and $118.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2012. For the full year 2013, net revenue was $461.9 million, compared with $476.9 million for 2012.

Bookings for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $113.3 million, compared with $115.9 million for the third quarter of 2013 and $110.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Total backlog and deferred revenue was $114.0 million as of December 31, 2013, compared to $123.6 million as of September 27, 2013.  

The GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $2.2 million, or $(0.02) per diluted share, compared with GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2013 of $36.7 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, which included a discrete net tax benefit of $38.4 million related to the release of tax reserves for uncertain tax positions of prior years, and GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 of  $0.9 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. For the full year 2013, GAAP net income was $21.6 million, or $0.20 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $16.2 million, or $(0.14) per diluted share, for 2012.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $8.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2013 of $7.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, and non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $8.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share. For the full year 2013, non-GAAP net income was $18.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with $22.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for 2012. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" provided below.

GAAP gross margin was 49.6% and GAAP operating margin was (0.8)% for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with 46.2% and (2.1)%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2013, and 50.9% and (0.6)%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP gross margin was 54.3% and non-GAAP operating margin was 8.9% for the fourth quarter of 2013, compared with 50.8% and 7.1%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2013, and 55.8% and 9.5%, respectively, for the fourth quarter of 2012. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations" provided below.

Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments were $170.6 million at the end of the fourth quarter of 2013, up $1.3 million from $169.3 million as of the end of the prior quarter. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company generated approximately $18.6 million of cash from operations, and used approximately $13.0 million to repurchase approximately 1.8 million shares of common stock under its share repurchase program.

"Our revenue was again driven by our growing Broadcast and Media business, and we continued to see a solid rebound in our Cable Edge business," said Patrick Harshman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Business fundamentals were led by robust gross margin expansion and cash generation from operations. Strategic execution was highlighted by progress on our NSG Pro converged cable access platform, where we recognized our first revenue, next generation video compression, where we had our first tier one customer order, ultra high definition television and over-the-top multiscreen."

Business Outlook

For the first quarter of 2014, Harmonic anticipates:

  • Net revenue in the range of $105 million to $115 million 

  • GAAP gross margins in the range of 49% to 50% 

  • GAAP operating expenses in the range of $60 million to $61 million 

  • Non-GAAP gross margins in the range of 51% to 52% 

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses in the range of $54 million to $55 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 fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2013; our expectations concerning quarter-on-quarter and year-on-year growth; and net revenue, GAAP gross margins, GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP gross margins and non-GAAP operating expenses for the first quarter of 2014. 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 the possibility, in no particular order, that: the trends toward more high-definition, on-demand and anytime, anywhere video will not continue to develop at its current pace or will expire; 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, including as a result of recent turmoil in the global financial markets 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; dependence on market acceptance of several 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; the risks that our international sales and support center will not provide the operational or tax benefits that we anticipate or that its expenses exceed our plans; 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, 2012, our recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, 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 margin, operating expenses, operating margin, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) 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 costs related to consulting fees associated with a potential proxy contest, restructuring and related charges 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.
