Polycom Reports Third Quarter 2009 Earnings

Consolidated Revenues Grow Over 5 Percent Quarter-to-Quarter; All Product Lines and Geographic Theatres Generate Sequential Revenue Growth

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2009) - Polycom, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLCM), the global leader in telepresence, video and voice communications solutions, today reported its earnings for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2009.

Third quarter 2009 consolidated net revenues were $243 million, compared to $231 million for the second quarter of 2009 and to $276 million for the third quarter of 2008. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2009 was $27 million, or 31 cents per diluted share. This compares to Non-GAAP net income of $24 million, or 29 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009 and to Non-GAAP net income of $32 million, or 37 cents per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2008. GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2009 was $14 million, or 16 cents per diluted share, compared to $15 million, or 18 cents per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2009, and to $18 million, or 21 cents per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2008.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2009, net revenues were $699 million, compared to $806 million for the first nine months of 2008. Non-GAAP net income for the period was $74 million, or 86 cents per diluted share, compared to $95 million, or $1.08 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2008. GAAP net income for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2009 was $37 million, or 44 cents per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $50 million, or 57 cents per diluted share, for the same period last year.

The reconciliation between GAAP net income and Non-GAAP net income is provided in the tables at the end of this release.

On a product line basis, including applicable service revenues, consolidated net revenues for the third quarter of 2009 were comprised of:

--  68 percent video solutions, or $165 million (53 percent video
    communications, or $130 million, and 15 percent network systems, or $35
    million); and
--  32 percent voice communications, or $78 million.
    

This compares to the third quarter of 2008, in which consolidated net revenues were comprised of:

--  65 percent video solutions, or $178 million (52 percent video
    communications, or $144 million, and 12 percent network systems, or $34
    million); and
--  35 percent voice communications, or $98 million.
    

"We are particularly pleased with our results for the third quarter as recent initiatives to improve our go-to-market strategy, coupled with our steadfast commitment to delivering superior innovation, contributed to strong sequential revenue growth," said Robert Hagerty, Polycom chairman and CEO. "Under the leadership of Andy Miller, our new executive vice president of Global Field Operations, we swiftly executed several actions to improve and intensify customer ownership and support across the enterprise, government, and service provider sectors. Specifically, we made sales management changes, drove new enhancements to our sales analytics, and developed specific programs with our various partners to improve both channel and Polycom margins through deeper customer engagement. These efforts have already yielded a higher level of visibility with our customers and partners alike and, for instance, contributed to the fast turnaround in voice revenue growth."

"Polycom continues to lead the industry in product innovation, most recently with improvements to our higher margin network infrastructure solution, which contributed to our significant growth and key customer wins during the third quarter. High customer adoption is being driven by our platform's unique advantages, namely superior HD video quality, flexible port configuration, scalability and redundancy. With this new platform, customers can easily manage large HD video networks across their telepresence, room-based, and desktop video installations. As a result of the early success of our new solution and driven by increased customer demand for even larger video networks, we announced the expansion of this product line with our new Polycom RMX and RSS™ 4000 products, which will begin shipping this quarter."

"With an improving go-to-market execution, continued success in product innovation, broad strategic and service provider partnerships, and the industry's most open solution, we believe Polycom is best suited to capture the rapid adoption of business-to-business (B2B) unified collaboration (UC) over the coming quarters and years," Hagerty concluded.

"Broad customer demand drove sequential revenue growth, increased deferred revenues, and a sharp sequential increase in order backlog in the third quarter," said Michael Kourey, Polycom senior vice president, finance and administration, and CFO. "As a result of this top-line performance and our proactive inventory reductions, we generated positive operating cash flow of over $39 million, representing Polycom's 47th consecutive quarter of positive operating cash flow. Our sound balance sheet continues to underpin solid fundamentals and, net of $20 million in share repurchases in Q3, we exited the quarter with $408 million in cash and investments and no debt."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP
basis, Polycom uses non-GAAP measures of operating results, net income and
income per share, which are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses,
gains and losses we believe appropriate to enhance an overall understanding
of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future.
These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the
intent of providing both management and investors a more complete
understanding of Polycom's underlying operational results and trends and
our marketplace performance. For example, the non-GAAP results are an
indication of our baseline performance before gains, losses or other
charges that are considered by management to be outside of our core
operating results. In addition, these adjusted non-GAAP results are among
the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and
forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional
information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute
for net income or diluted net income per share prepared in accordance with
generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.
