Stocks in this article: SSNI

Silver Spring Networks, Inc. (NYSE: SSNI) today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP gross profit margin was 30.1%, up sequentially from 29.2% in Q1 and down as expected when compared to 33.6% a year ago due to changes in non-GAAP revenue mix. GAAP gross profit margin was 46.6% as compared to 12.9% a year ago.

Non-GAAP net loss was $4.5 million as compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $1.1 million a year ago. GAAP net income was $9.5 million as compared with a GAAP net loss of $23.4 million a year ago.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Silver Spring believes that its results of operations under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, when considered in isolation, may only provide limited insight into the performance of its business in any given period. As a result, Silver Spring manages its business, makes planning decisions, evaluates its performance and allocates resources by assessing non-GAAP measures such as non-GAAP revenue (billings), cost of non-GAAP revenue (billings), non-GAAP gross profit (loss), non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share, and adjusted EBITDA, in addition to other financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. Silver Spring believes that these non-GAAP measures offer valuable supplemental information regarding the performance of its business, and will help investors better understand the sales volumes, and gross margin and profitability trends, as well as the cash flow characteristics, of its business. These non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from, are not a substitute for, and do not purport to be an alternative to, revenue, cost of revenue, gross profit (loss), operating loss, net loss, loss per share or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP. Silver Spring may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded in calculating the non-GAAP financial measures it uses.
