Allot Communications Announces First Quarter 2007 Results

HOD HASHARON, Israel, May 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Allot Communications Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALLT), a leader in IP service optimization solutions based on deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2007.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2007 totaled $8.3 million, a 9% increase from the $7.6 million of revenues reported in the first quarter of 2006. On a GAAP basis, net loss for the first quarter of 2007 was $434 thousand, or $0.02 per share, as compared with net income of $5 thousand, or $0.00 per share, in the first quarter of 2006.

Included in the GAAP net income is the impact of share-based compensation expense. On a pro-forma, non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation expense in both periods, non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2007 totaled $112 thousand, or $0.00 per share, as compared with a non-GAAP net profit of $87 thousand, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2006.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. A full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided in the accompanying Table 3.

"As we previously reported, revenues for the first quarter were below our expectation," stated Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. "This weakness was due primarily to a slowdown in sales through some of our distribution channels, principally in the Americas, which are focused on sales to enterprise, education and smaller ISPs. However, we were pleased with the success Allot had during the quarter in terms of securing larger scale DPI projects within a variety of customer verticals and geographic regions. We are encouraged by our continued progress in the Tier 1 and Tier 2 service provider accounts worldwide, which is our strategic objective. Our larger customers this quarter included 5 large service providers in Asia, EMEA and Latin America, two mobile operators and one incumbent telecom operator in Asia, and several government accounts in EMEA and Latin America.

"Our high-end carrier class NetEnforcer products continue to address the needs of service providers looking to introduce intelligent IP service optimization solutions to improve their network efficiency, minimize operating costs and increase levels of customer satisfaction. In addition, our next generation 20 GB/s platform, which is tailored to meet the scalability and multi-Gigabit throughput needs of the Tier 1 carrier market, remains on track," concluded Mr. Hadar.

As of March 31, 2007, Allot's cash and cash equivalents, including short and long-term deposits and investments in marketable securities, totaled $80.5 million.

Financial Guidance

The Company reaffirms its previous guidance for the year 2007, and anticipates that net revenues will total approximately $40 million.
