(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120501/529254 ) Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results:
- Revenues totaled $5.6 million compared to $5.7 million for the sequential second quarter of 2012 and $5.9 million in the third quarter of 2011. The decline in revenue was primarily related to the low level of new bookings in the previous fiscal year and a modest decline in the level of activity among select customers who experienced a slowdown in their own underlying businesses.
- Net income in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (US GAAP) was $19,000, compared to net income of $804,000 for the sequential second quarter of 2012 and $887,000 in the third quarter of 2011. The decline in net income was primarily attributable to the impact of acquisition related costs as well as the planned higher level of investment in sales, marketing and engineering expenses associated with the ongoing support of Commtouch's "Software-as-a-Service" strategy rollout and upcoming launch, among other factors.
- GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.00, compared to $0.03 for the sequential second quarter of 2012 and $0.04 in the third quarter of 2011.
- Non-GAAP net income was $744,000, compared to $1.3 million for the sequential second quarter of 2012 and $1.8 million in the third quarter of 2011.
- Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.03, compared to $0.05 for the sequential second quarter of 2012 and $0.07 in the third quarter of 2011.
- Commtouch announced the acquisition of FRISK Software International's Antivirus business, accelerating the company's launch of an expanded range of antivirus solutions for the OEM and service provider market. The acquisition closed on October 1, 2012 and will begin to be integrated into Commtouch's full quarterly results beginning in the fourth quarter of 2012.
- Cash used for operating cash activities during the quarter was $1.4 million which included $1.0 million as part of a pre-payment plan to secure a long-term technological supplier agreement which is projected to yield cost effective results in terms of reducing the company's cost of revenue and increasing gross margin.
- Cash as of September 30, 2012 was $17.3 million, compared to $19.8 million as of June 30, 2012. Cash usage during the quarter included the aforementioned $1.0 million pre-paid supplier agreement, $828,000 related to the company's share repurchase program activity during the quarter, as well as increased capital expenditures related to the execution of the company's new SaaS strategy and higher acquisition related expenses, among other factors.
