“We achieved robust growth in Unified Communications (“UC”) net revenues as global adoption of the technology continues,” said Ken Kannappan, President & CEO. “Solid revenue in Office and Contact Center (“OCC”) combined with market share gains in mono Bluetooth in the U.S. furthered our revenue growth in the quarter.”
“We continued to strategically invest in our UC product portfolio to strengthen our position as a leader in UC, while maintaining profitability within our long-term target range,” said Pam Strayer, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “We are focused on driving efficiency throughout the company to maximize our long-term investment in UC.”
OCC net revenues increased 5% to $139.4 million compared with $133.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 driven by the strength of our UC revenues. Net revenues from UC products, a subset of OCC, grew by 43% to $36.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared with $25.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.
Mobile net revenues were $44.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, an increase of $8.1 million, or 23%, from $36.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 primarily as a result of strong product launches and good product placement in our retail channels.Dividend Announcement We also announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share. The dividend will be payable on March 11, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 20, 2013. Business Outlook The following statements are based on our current expectations and many of these statements are forward-looking. Actual results are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and may differ materially from our expectations. We have a “book and ship” business model whereby we ship most orders to customers within 48 hours of receipt of those orders, and, therefore, the level of backlog does not provide reliable visibility into potential future revenues. In addition, our incoming orders have historically been low during the last two weeks of December and the first half of January, and have then increased significantly into February and March.
