HOD HASHARON, Israel, Aug. 8 /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 second quarter ended June 30, 2007.
Revenues for the second quarter of 2007 totaled $8.6 million, representing a 4% increase over the $8.3 million in revenues reported for the first quarter of 2007 and a 6% increase from the $8.2 million of revenues reported in the second quarter of 2006. On a GAAP basis, the net loss for the second quarter of 2007 was $592 thousand, or $0.03 per share, as compared with a net loss of $434 thousand, or $0.02 per share, for the first quarter of 2007 and net income of $53 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2006. For the first six months of 2007, revenues reached $16.9 million, representing a 7% increase over $15.7 million in revenues for the first half of 2006. On a GAAP basis, the net loss for the first six months of 2007 totaled $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, as compared with net income of $58 thousand, or $0.00 per diluted share, for the first half of 2006.
On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation expense in both periods, and the impact of expenses related to a law suit in the second quarter of 2007, the non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of 2007 totaled $299 thousand, or $0.01 per share, as compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $112 thousand, or $0.00 per share, for the first quarter of 2007 and non-GAAP net income of $324 thousand, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2006. For the first six months of 2007, the non-GAAP net loss, excluding the impact of the share-based compensation and the impact of the legal expenses, totaled $411 thousand, or $0.02 per share, as compared with net income of $411 thousand, or $0.03 per diluted share for the first half of 2006.
These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. Reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided in the accompanying Table 2 of this press release. Allot provides these non-GAAP financial measures because they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of Allot's operating performance.
"We were pleased to see that channel sales are beginning to improve, particularly in the Americas, during the second quarter," commented Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. "We believe that this initial improvement, along with our focus on the carrier market presents significant growth opportunities for Allot over the middle to long term.
"The announcement of our new Service Gateway has generated significant interest within our current customer base as well as in the carrier markets worldwide. This new carrier class platform, which remains on track for trials in the current quarter and is presently scheduled to be generally available in the fourth quarter of 2007, will offer Allot customers what we believe is the fastest product available in the market, delivering true 10 GB/s full duplex capability, or over 20 GB/s total throughput. The service gateway is based on an open architecture platform which enables carriers to easily expand and deploy additional value added services while leveraging their current infrastructure investments. By utilizing Allot's best-of-breed DPI technology, carriers can offer flexible, personalized subscriber services to generate significant new revenue streams. While the migration from 1GB/s to 10 GB/s interface products may delay purchasing decisions among several of our customers, we believe that the initial demand we are seeing for the new platform will contribute to revenue growth as early as the fourth quarter of this year," concluded Mr. Hadar.
During the second quarter, key highlights included the following achievements:
-- Allot unveiled the industry's first DPI-based Service Gateway supporting more than 20 Gigabits per second (GB/s) of traffic; -- Continued demand among Tier 2 service providers; recently announced customers include Vodafone Iceland, Telefonica del Sur in Chile, and Cablemas in Mexico; -- Sales in North and South America reached $2.8 million, a 17% increase over the first quarter; and -- Allot commenced a second commercial DPI deployment with a major wireless operator.
As of June 30, 2007, Allot's cash and cash equivalents, including short and long-term deposits and investments in marketable securities, totaled $78.5 million.
With the anticipated general availability and market acceptance of the Service Gateway during the fourth quarter of 2007, the Company maintains its previous guidance for the year 2007, and anticipates that net revenues will total approximately $40 million.
