Polycom Announces Revenues Of $353 Million For Fourth Quarter 2012

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communication and collaboration (UC&C), today reported financial results for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth quarter 2012 consolidated net revenues were $353 million, up 5 percent sequentially, growing in all product categories, compared to $335 million for the third quarter of 2012 and down 9 percent year-over-year compared to $386 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $31 million, or 17 cents per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $17 million or 10 cents per diluted share for the third quarter of 2012, and non-GAAP net income of $68 million, or 38 cents per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2011. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $2 million, or 1 cent per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $50 million, or 28 cents per diluted share, for the same period last year. All periods presented in this release have been adjusted to reflect the classification of Polycom’s Enterprise Wireless Solutions business as discontinued operations. The reconciliation between GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income is provided in the tables at the end of this release.

“Polycom has executed very well, demonstrating clear product leadership during the UC&C market transition in 2012,” stated Andrew M. Miller, Polycom President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are excited to begin 2013 with what we believe is the most comprehensive product portfolio in the industry and improved sales and go-to-market capabilities that enable new business models for collaboration, including software, cloud-delivered video, and virtualization.”

“We are pleased to report sequential revenue growth in all product categories, including UC Platform, which is above a quarter billion dollar per year run rate,” continued Eric Brown, Polycom Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “Services revenue also increased both sequentially and year-over-year in line with our increased focus on this area of the business.”
