Ixia Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: XXIA

Ixia (Nasdaq:XXIA) today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Total revenue for the 2012 third quarter was $109.6 million, compared with $77.3 million reported for the 2011 third quarter and $92.3 million reported for the 2012 second quarter. The 2012 third quarter includes $17.3 million for a full quarter of revenue from the recent acquisition of Anue Systems, Inc. (“Anue”), which closed in June 2012, and approximately $3.5 million of revenue attributable to the recently acquired BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. (“BreakingPoint”) for the period following the August 24, 2012 closing date.

On a GAAP basis, the company recorded net income for the 2012 third quarter of $11.4 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared with net income of $6.4 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the 2011 third quarter. GAAP results for the third quarter of 2012 include a tax benefit of approximately $12.7 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the reversal of valuation allowances related to deferred tax assets.

Non-GAAP net income for the 2012 third quarter was a record $15.8 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $12.0 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the 2011 third quarter. Our non-GAAP results include the exclusion of the above mentioned valuation allowance reversal related to deferred tax assets.

Additional non-GAAP information and a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 may be found in the attached financial tables.

“We delivered another record quarter driven by high-speed Ethernet and our Network Visibility Solutions,” commented Vic Alston, Ixia's president and chief executive officer. “Our geographic and customer mix in the third quarter reflected our two recent acquisitions that resulted in a higher percentage of domestic revenue as well as a stronger performance among service provider, enterprise and government accounts.”

Alston continued, “Market trends are shifting to mobility, security, cloud and massive data centers, all areas where Ixia has invested heavily over the past several years. With the transformative acquisitions of Anue and BreakingPoint, we are building a broad service validation platform that enables customers to design, deploy and assess their networks. Going forward, we believe these investments will help Ixia address larger, higher growth markets, as well as diversify our customer base.”
