  • Revenue of $70.4 million
  • GAAP Gross Margin of 29.4% up 2.8 percentage points year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP Gross Margin of 32.1% up 1.4 percentage points year-over-year
  • Operating Cash Flow of $2.3 million

HILLSBORO, Ore.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 27, 2009-- RadiSys® Corporation (NASDAQ:RSYS), a leading global provider of advanced embedded solutions, announced revenues of $70.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009, down 29.7% versus the same quarter last year. The Company’s GAAP net loss was $0.8 million or $0.04 per share in the third quarter, versus a net loss of $0.5 million or $0.02 per share in the same quarter last year. Third quarter non-GAAP net income was $3.5 million or $0.13 per diluted share, versus net income of $5.5 million or $0.21 per diluted share in the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP results in the third quarter exclude the impact of restructuring charges, amortization of acquired intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the tables below.

Commenting on the third quarter results, Scott Grout, RadiSys President and CEO stated, “Revenues were in line with our projections, and we delivered better than expected gross margins, earnings, and cash flow in the third quarter as a result of continued cost improvements in our operations. In addition, we had another strong design win quarter with several notable awards including a win with a new North American Tier 1 customer that plans to use our ATCA platform for their Wireless Messaging application, and a win with a China based Tier 1 customer that plans to use our media server in a new Video Gateway application. Within our operations and engineering organizations, we are making very good progress on the previously announced initiatives to increase our operational efficiency and global capabilities that will expand our operating margins over time.”

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Revenue was $70.4 million, down 29.7% from the same quarter in the prior year, which was the Company’s record revenue quarter. As anticipated, the Company’s traditional wireless and commercial businesses were down from the prior year due to general market softness.
  • GAAP gross margin was 29.4%, up 2.8 percentage points year-over-year. Non-GAAP gross margin was 32.1%, up 1.4 percentage points year-over-year, mainly due to favorable product mix as well as improved manufacturing and operational costs.
  • Total GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses were $21.0 million, down $3.7 million or 14.9% from the same quarter last year and $0.8 million from the prior quarter. Non-GAAP R&D and SG&A expenses were $19.3 million, down $3.3 million or 14.4% from the same quarter last year and down $0.8 million from the prior quarter.
  • GAAP operating loss was $1.1 million. Non-GAAP operating income was $3.4 million or 4.8% of revenue.
  • Cash flow from operating activities was $2.3 million and cash and cash equivalents were $92.1 million at the end of the third quarter.

Third Quarter New Product Highlights

The Company had another strong design win quarter with continued growth in higher margin, next-generation product wins:

  • Media Server Product Highlights:
                   

-

  In the third quarter, the Company was awarded a key new design win with an existing Tier 1 customer in China. This award was for an integrated media processing platform that will be used by Mobile Service Providers to deliver advanced 3G Video Services.
 

-

In September, the Company announced the addition of new 3G features for its Media Server product family enabling two-way interactive mobile video. RadiSys Media Servers offer a broad range of IP video processing features for Video Telephony applications including Mobile Video Conferencing, Video Ringback Tones, Video Mail and Interactive Voice and Video Response (IVVR). With the addition of new media processing capabilities, the RadiSys Media Servers now support a service provider’s 3G video processing needs with one common VoIP infrastructure.
  • ATCA Product Highlights:
                    -   The Company announced a new ATCA 4.0 initiative in October. ATCA 4.0 is the Company’s fourth generation of AdvancedTCA (ATCA) products that are designed to support emerging high bandwidth communications applications. A first in the marketplace, this fully integrated platform features the latest technology in the industry, incorporating a 10/40G backplane and switching capability. As Telecom Equipment Manufacturers (TEMs) focus on building products for high bandwidth mobile networks, including 4G and Broadband, the RadiSys ATCA 4.0 platform will provide customers with the latest advances in switching, power and cooling required for these demanding new applications.
 
- The Company also announced that it is partnering with Aricent and 6WIND to deliver application-ready platforms for the Long Term Evolution (LTE) Evolved Packet Core (EPC). Through this collaboration, the Company can deliver its market-proven ATCA platform, a comprehensive LTE signaling stack and efficient data path software in one integrated solution that lowers development risk for TEMs and reduces time-to-market by as much as 18 months.
 
- The Company was awarded new ATCA business in Messaging, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) Security Gateways, VoIP Probe, Session Border Controller (SBC) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). Specifically, the Messaging win was of notable size with a new Tier 1 TEM for RadiSys in North America. The UAV win is for a new customer’s Universal Ground Control Station used for Unmanned Aerial Reconnaissance drones.
 
- The Company’s ATCA 4500 10 Gigabit compute processing module was production released in the second quarter and deployed in customer trial networks in the third quarter. This product is ideal for control plane and server functions for LTE wireless infrastructure, DPI, IPTV, IP Multimedia Subsystems and defense applications.
  • Commercial Product Highlights:
                    -   The Company was awarded a sizable new COM Express win by a leading enterprise server provider in North America for a network switching application. The Company also won new COM Express business in the third quarter in a wide variety of applications including Military, Session Border Controller and Touch Panel Home Automation systems. Further, the Company also won new rack mount server Medical Imaging business with an existing Tier 1 Medical customer.

Fourth Quarter 2009 Outlook

The following statements are based on current expectations as of the date of this press release. These statements are forward-looking and actual results may differ materially. The Company assumes no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

  • Q4 revenue is projected to be between $72 and $78 million and is expected to increase sequentially from the third quarter due to increased demand for the Company’s next-generation communications products.
  • Q4 GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin percentages are expected to be around the same level as the third quarter’s gross margin rate at the midpoint of the guidance range.
  • Q4 GAAP and non-GAAP total R&D and SG&A expenses are expected to be up by approximately $0.9 million sequentially at the midpoint of the guidance due to compensation related costs and the timing of project spending.
  • Q4 GAAP results are expected to be between a net loss of $0.07 per share and net income $0.01 per diluted share. Q4 non-GAAP EPS is expected to be between $0.10 and $0.16. Both GAAP and non-GAAP expectations assume an effective tax rate of 10%.

In closing, Scott Grout stated, “I continue to be pleased with the level of new awards and deployments we are seeing for our next-generation products. This year we gained entry into several new strategic Tier 1 accounts, grew our revenues and design wins in Asia and are continuing to gain market share on our next-generation communications products. I am also excited about our new product announcements in our ATCA and Media Server businesses. At the same time we continue to make substantial enhancements to our operational and financial models, and I believe we are in a great position to leverage these enhancements with our market leadership position and new product developments.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements, including statements about the Company’s business strategy, outlook and guidance for the fourth quarter of 2009. Actual results could differ materially from the outlook, guidance and expectations in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of risk factors, including, among others, (a) the Company’s dependence on certain customers and high degree of customer concentration, (b) the anticipated amount and timing of revenues from design wins due to the Company’s customers’ product development time, cancellations or delays, (c) the current economic uncertainty and turmoil within the global financial markets, and (d) other factors listed in RadiSys’ reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), including those listed under “Risk Factors” in RadiSys’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, and other filings with the SEC, copies of which may be obtained by contacting the Company at 503-615-1100 or from the Company’s investor relations web site at http://investor.radisys.com/. Although forward-looking statements help provide additional information about RadiSys, investors should keep in mind that forward-looking statements are inherently less reliable than historical information. All information in this press release is as of October 27, 2009. The Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statement to conform the statement to actual results or changes in the Company’s expectations.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses, gains and losses, such as the effects of (a) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation expense recognized as a result of the Company’s adoption of FAS 123R, (c) restructuring charges (reversals), (d) a deferred tax asset valuation charge, and (e) a Canadian deferred tax foreign exchange benefit. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company's performance, and the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. These non-GAAP measures are considered to be reflective of the Company’s core operating results as they more closely reflect the essential revenue-generating activities of the Company and direct operating expenses (resulting in cash expenditures) needed to perform these revenue-generating activities. The Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its earnings calls' Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community, that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides are necessary to allow the investment community to construct their valuation models to better align its results and projections with its competitors and market sector, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to certain expenses, gains and losses.

The non-GAAP financial information is presented using consistent methodology from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP information to GAAP information is included in the tables below. The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release should be carefully evaluated. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The Company excludes the following expenses, reversals, gains and losses from its non-GAAP financial measures, when applicable:

 

(a) Amortization of acquired intangible assets: Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets primarily relate to core and existing technologies, patents, trade name and customer relationships that were acquired with the acquisition of Convedia and MCPD. The Company excludes the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because it does not reflect the Company's ongoing business and it does not have a direct correlation to the operation of the Company's business. In addition, in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally recognizes expenses for internally-developed intangible assets as they are incurred, notwithstanding the potential future benefit such assets may provide. Unlike internally-developed intangible assets, however, and also in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally capitalizes the cost of acquired intangible assets and recognizes that cost as an expense over the useful lives of the assets acquired (other acquired in-process technology, which is expensed immediately, as required under GAAP). As a result of their GAAP treatment, there is an inherent lack of comparability between the financial performance of internally-developed intangible assets and acquired intangible assets. Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful to provide, as a supplement to its GAAP operating results, non-GAAP financial measures that exclude the amortization of acquired intangibles in order to enhance the period-over-period comparison of its operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense.

 

(b) Stock-based compensation: Stock-based compensation consists of expenses recorded under the relevant GAAP, in connection with stock awards such as stock options, restricted stock awards and restricted stock units granted under the Company's equity incentive plans and shares issued pursuant to the Company's employee stock purchase plan. The Company excludes stock-based compensation from non-GAAP financial measures because it is a non-cash measurement that does not reflect the Company's ongoing business and because the Company believes that investors want to understand the impact on the Company of the adoption the applicable GAAP surrounding share based payments; the Company believes that the provision of non-GAAP information that excludes stock-based compensation improves the ability of investors to compare its period-over-period operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense.

 
(c) Restructuring charges (reversals): Restructuring and other charges primarily relate to activities engaged in by the Company’s management to simplify its infrastructure. Restructuring and other charges are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered core operating activities and the occurrence of such costs are infrequent. Although the Company has engaged in various restructuring activities over the past several years, each has been a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. The Company does not engage in restructuring activities on a regular basis or in the ordinary course of business. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges from its non-GAAP financial measures, as it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.
 
(d) Deferred tax asset valuation allowance: A full valuation allowance for the Company's U.S. deferred tax assets was triggered by a three year cumulative jurisdictional pre-tax book loss projected for years 2007, 2008, and 2009 based on a “more likely than not” standard under the applicable GAAP. In the future, if the Company determines that it is more likely than not to realize the net U.S. deferred tax assets, the Company would reverse the applicable portion of the previously recorded valuation allowance. The Company believes it is appropriate to exclude this charge from its non-GAAP financial measures, as it is a non-cash charge and its exclusion enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.
 
(e) Canadian deferred tax foreign exchange benefit: During the first quarter of 2009, the Company recorded a favorable tax benefit related to locking in a foreign exchange with Canadian tax authorities. This exchange rate will be used to value the Company’s historical Canadian dollar denominated deferred tax assets going forward. The Company believes it is appropriate to exclude this charge in its non-GAAP financial measures, as it is a non-cash benefit and its exclusion enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.
 
(f) Income taxes: Income tax provision/ (benefit) associated with non-GAAP adjustments.

(I) The effects of the 2013 convertible senior notes were excluded in the computation of diluted earnings per share as the effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

(II) The non-GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding includes the effects of the shares underlying the 2013 convertible senior notes, and as a result the diluted earnings per share calculation excludes the interest expense for the converts, net of tax. Total net interest expense added back to net income amounts to $291 thousand.
