  • Cash and investments ended the quarter at $153.5 million, as compared to $147.2 million from Q3 of fiscal 2012.

  • Accounts receivable balance at Q4 was $41.2 million, a (net) decrease $4.6 million from Q3 of fiscal 2012, with days sales outstanding (DSO) of 42, a decrease of 15 days from Q3 of fiscal 2012.

  • Inventory at Q4 was $26.6 million, a (net) increase of $3.3 million from Q3 of fiscal 2012 and represents 72 days of inventory (DOI), a decrease of 6 days from Q3 of fiscal 2012.

Fiscal Year 2012 Business Highlights:

  • We experienced growth in the number of 10G Ethernet ports shipped of 146% in fiscal 2012, while the total market for 10G Ethernet ports is estimated by the Dell'Oro Group to grow at 66% in calendar year 2012, and we believe we will continue to grow significantly faster than the overall market for 10G ports shipped in calendar year 2012.

  • Extreme Networks was ranked #1 and #2 in two key categories of 40 Gigabit Ethernet Switch Market Share for the last six months of calendar 2011, and earned a #1 rating for its BlackDiamond X8 and Summit X670 product by Infotech Research in its November 2011 report for data center and cloud switching.

  • Ahead of the Summer Olympics, the London Internet Exchange (LINX), one of the world's leading exchange points for Internet traffic, has become one of the first organizations to purchase the BlackDiamond® X8 switch to help meet growing network data traffic requirements.

  • Developed and piloted New Software Supporting Open Flow and Software-Defined Networks (SDN) capabilities.

  • Completed a transformation of the business and we believe we are now well positioned to achieve our goals to grow revenue and increase profitability.

Business Outlook:
While we believe our new products, such as the high performance BlackDiamond X8, can drive higher demand over the next few quarters, our targets for the near-term reflect the uncertainty in the global economy. Our targeted revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ending September 30, 2012, is in a range of $75 million to $82 million with GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin targeted to be in a similar range as Q4 at 56%. GAAP net income is targeted at break-even to $3.0 million, or $0.00 to $0.03 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income is targeted in a range of $1 million to $4 million, or $0.01 to $0.05 per diluted share. (Non-GAAP targets for the first fiscal quarter exclude stock based compensation expense.) The GAAP and non-GAAP net income targets are based on an estimated 95.7 million diluted weighted average shares. 

The schedules attached to this release are an integral part of the release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
This press release highlights the company's financial results on both a GAAP and a non-GAAP basis. The GAAP results include certain costs, charges and expenses which are excluded from non-GAAP results. By publishing the non-GAAP measures, management intends to provide investors with additional information to further analyze the company's performance, core results and underlying trends. Extreme's management evaluates results and makes operating decisions using both GAAP and non-GAAP measures included in this press release. Non-GAAP results are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and non-GAAP information should be considered a supplement to, and not a substitute for, financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures attached to this press release.

Forward Looking Statements:
Actual results, including with respect to our targets and prospects, could differ materially due to a number of factors, including the risk that we may not obtain sufficient orders to achieve our targeted revenues for the company's products and services given that increasing price competition in key network switching equipment markets; our effectiveness in controlling expenses, the risk that we or our distributors and other channel partners are not able to develop and expand customer bases and accurately anticipate demand from end customers, which can result in increased inventory and reduced orders as we experience wide fluctuations in supply and demand; the risk that our results will suffer if we are unable to balance fluctuations in customer demand and capacity; risks associated with the ramp-up of production of our new products and our entry into new business channels different from those in which we have historically operated; the risk that we may experience production delays that preclude us from shipping sufficient quantities to meet customer orders or that result in higher production costs and lower margins; ongoing uncertainty in global economic conditions, infrastructure development or customer demand that could negatively affect product demand, collectability of receivables and other related matters as consumers and businesses may defer purchases or payments, or default on payments; our ability to complete development and commercialization of products under development, such as our pipeline of new network switches and related software; our ability to lower costs; risks resulting from the concentration of our business among few customers, including the risk that customers may reduce or cancel orders or fail to honor purchase commitments; the rapid development of new technology and competing products that may impair demand or render our products obsolete; the potential lack of customer acceptance for our new products; and risks associated with ongoing litigation; a dependency on third parties for certain components and for the manufacturing of the Company's products. More information about potential factors that could affect the Company's business and financial results is included in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including, without limitation, under the captions: "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations," and "Risk Factors," which are on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Except as required under the U.S. federal securities laws and the rules and regulations of the SEC, Extreme Networks disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements after the date of this release, whether as a result of new information, future events, developments, changes in assumptions or otherwise.
