Ikanos Communications Announces Results for the Third Quarter 2014

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2014) -   Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN)

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Revenue of $11.1 million
  • GAAP net loss of $(10.3) million, or $(0.10) per share
  • Ending cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments of $6.7 million

Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the connected home, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2014, ended September 28, 2014.

"We achieved third quarter revenue of $11.1 million, within our guidance, with a GAAP gross profit of 44%, below our guidance, which resulted from a product mix shift at the end of the quarter," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "During the third quarter, we continued to carefully manage our business and cash position, recording operating expenses of $14.8 million, below the mid-point of our guidance, with cash and short-term investments totaling $6.7 million at quarter end, which excludes the gross proceeds of our announced private placement funding of $16.3 million that occurred on September 29, 2014."

"The third quarter marked a significant milestone in Ikanos' recent history," said Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos. "The agreement with Alcatel-Lucent and the associated investment that were announced on September 29, 2014 were testaments to Ikanos' technology leadership and strongly validate the strategy and the vision we have been executing on for the past two years. We believe our partnership with this market leader will significantly strengthen our position within the access product segment, and also broaden our reach among global carriers, which in turn will positively impact our gateway and inSIGHT business opportunities. I'm very excited about this engagement and its potential impact on Ikanos' future growth. In addition, we now have access to China, the world's largest telecom market, through the adoption of our Velocity-3 chipset by FiberHome."

Financial Details
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP gross profits and non-GAAP operating expenses, where applicable, exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and the amortization of intangible assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis, as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995
 Some of the statements included in this press release constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You should not place undue reliance on these statements. These forward-looking statements include statements that reflect the current views of our senior management with respect to future events with respect to our business and our industry in general. Statements that include the words "expect," "intend," "plan," "believe," "anticipate," "estimate," and similar statements of a future or forward-looking nature identify forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include, but are not limited to, the following: our ability to achieve the anticipated benefits of our partnership with Alcatel-Lucent, including the strengthening of our position within the access product segment, broadening our reach among global carriers, and the potential impact on our gateway and inSIGHT businesses; our ability to capitalize on our access to China's telecom market through the adoption of our Velocity-3 chipset by FiberHome; new product revenue momentum may not materialize at the rate anticipated, or at all; the transition to new products will take longer than anticipated; our ability to manage operating expenses will be less successful than anticipated and not result in the cost reductions expected; the revenue generated by our mature products will decline at a rate greater than anticipated; that new designs and design wins will result in sales of our products at the levels anticipated, or at all; that our carrier trials will be successful and, if successful, will eventually result in field trials or market deployments; that the delays in new customer product ramps will continue longer than anticipated; that the return to sequential revenue growth will not occur by the end of the year and may take longer than anticipated; that the rate of acceptance of our new and future products, including our G.fast products, by our customers and telecommunications service providers, may be lower than anticipated; our ability to complete future products, including our G.fast products, when anticipated or at all; that the unfavorable trends in certain maturing markets, such as Japan and Korea, will continue longer than anticipated; that our design win pipeline will continue to expand as anticipated; macroeconomic or other conditions which may cause our customers to defer purchasing plans or cancel any purchasing plans altogether despite successful design wins or successful field trials; the continued demand by telecommunications service providers for our specific xDSL semiconductor products; our ability to continue to effectively manage our business, operating expenses, and cash position; the failure of telecommunications service providers to implement deployment plans on schedule, or at all, despite increased performance results; our ability to generate demand and close transactions for the sale of our products; competition in the markets in which we operate; and the fact that the products we sell may not satisfy shifting customer demand or compete successfully with our competitors' products. For a more detailed discussion of how these and other risks and uncertainties could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in our forward-looking statements, see our reports filed with SEC (available at www.sec.gov), including our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 29, 2014 filed on August 8, 2014.
