Polycom Announces Revenues Of $336 Million For Third Quarter 2013

Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communication and collaboration (UC&C), today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. Polycom reported third quarter 2013 net revenues of $336 million, non-GAAP net income of $19 million and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of 11 cents. GAAP net income for the third quarter was a loss of $24 million, or 14 cents per share. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is provided in the tables at the end of this press release.

“Polycom’s financial performance in Q3 was on target with our expectations, driven by our U.S. Enterprise and voice related businesses, partially offset by a more challenging quarter in Asia Pacific,” stated Kevin Parker, Polycom’s Chairman and interim Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to prioritize those areas of the business that maximize growth, while also pursuing opportunities to reduce expenses and drive expanded profitability.”

“Our third quarter results demonstrate the diversity of our revenue base, including growth from voice and services,” continued Eric Brown, Polycom Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “We announced a new $400 million return of capital program, including a Term Loan A financing and a tender offer for our shares, and closed the quarter with trailing 12 month operating cash flow of $183 million.”
