Harmonic Announces Second Quarter 2012 Results

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- July 24, 2012 -- Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT), a global leader in video infrastructure solutions, announced today its preliminary and unaudited results for the quarter ended June 29, 2012.

Net revenue for the second quarter of 2012 was $132.6 million, compared to $127.7 million for the first quarter of 2012 and $134.0 million for the second quarter of 2011.

Total bookings in the second quarter of 2012 were approximately $139.5 million, up 6% from approximately $131.7 million for the second quarter of 2011.  Total backlog and deferred revenue was $146.0 million as of June 29, 2012, compared with $122.0 million as of July 1, 2011.

The company reported a GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 of $17,000, or $0.00 per share, compared to a GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2011 of $0.4 million or $0.00 per share.  Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $7.2 million, or $0.06 per share, compared to $10.5 million, or $0.09 per share for the second quarter of 2011.  See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "GAAP to Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) Reconciliation" below.

Harmonic reported GAAP gross margins of 43% and GAAP operating margins of (2%) for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 46% and 1%, respectively, for the same period of 2011. Non-GAAP gross margins were 48% and non-GAAP operating margins were 7% for the second quarter of 2012, compared to 51% and 11%, respectively, for the same period of 2011.

As of June 29, 2012, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $177.8 million, an increase from $168.5 million as of March 30, 2012.  The company generated approximately $20.3 million of cash from operations in the second quarter of 2012 and repurchased 1.6 million shares of common stock for approximately $7.0 million, under its previously announced stock repurchase program.

"The second quarter was in-line with expectations and reflective of increased demand from US and most international geographies offset by continuing weakness in Europe," said Patrick Harshman, president and chief executive officer. "Our book-to-bill ratio is indicative of our strong competitive position and increasing system project wins that typically take several periods to fully recognize as revenue. The quarter was also characterized by greater than 25 new multiscreen wins and positive customer feedback on our in-development CCAP program. Looking ahead, our new product initiatives, our broad and growing customer base, and our continuing focus on operational excellence position Harmonic well for the future."

Business Outlook

Harmonic anticipates net revenue in the range of $130 million to $140 million for the third quarter of 2012.  GAAP gross margins and operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012 are expected to be in the range of 43% to 45% and $61 million to $62 million, respectively.  Non-GAAP gross margins and operating expenses for the third quarter of 2012, which will exclude stock-based compensation and the amortization of intangibles, are anticipated to be in the range of 47.5% to 49.5% and $55 million to $56 million, respectively.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In establishing operating budgets, managing its business performance, and setting internal measurement targets, the Company excludes 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, net income and net income per 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 contained in this presentation. The non-GAAP adjustments described below have historically been excluded from our GAAP financial measures. These adjustments are excess facilities and severance charges and non-cash items, such as stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, and discrete tax items and adjustments.
