Ixia Announces Record Revenue for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2012

Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA) today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Total revenue for the 2012 fourth quarter was a record $124.1 million, compared with $83.7 million reported for the 2011 fourth quarter and $109.6 million reported for the 2012 third quarter. The 2012 fourth quarter includes $30.3 million in revenue from the recent acquisitions of Anue Systems, Inc. (“Anue”) and BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. (“BreakingPoint”), which closed in June and August 2012, respectively. Excluding Anue and BreakingPoint, fourth quarter revenue grew 12 percent to $93.8 million in 2012 from $83.7 million a year ago.

Total revenue for the fiscal year 2012 was a record $411.7 million, an increase of 34 percent compared with $308.4 million reported for fiscal year 2011. Fiscal year 2012 includes $54.9 million in revenue attributable to Anue and BreakingPoint. For the full year, excluding Anue and BreakingPoint revenue in calendar 2012, revenue grew 16 percent to $356.8 million.

“Our strong fourth quarter capped off a transformational year that included completing two significant acquisitions and achieving record revenue and profit,” commented Vic Alston, Ixia's president and chief executive officer. “In the quarter, demand was strong across our entire solution offering with revenue from our Anue and BreakingPoint solutions exceeding our expectations. We made solid progress expanding our customer base with service provider and enterprise accounts hitting 50 percent of revenue in the quarter.”

Alston continued, “Looking forward into 2013, we intend to continue building on our momentum and growing our presence among service providers and enterprises as we help them optimize their networks and datacenters worldwide to accelerate, secure and scale application delivery.”

On a GAAP basis, the company recorded net income for the 2012 fourth quarter of $4.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with net income of $9.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the 2011 fourth quarter. The company recorded GAAP net income for fiscal year 2012 of $47.2 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared with $23.8 million or $0.33 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2011. GAAP results for the fiscal year 2012 include a tax benefit of approximately $37.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, for the reversal of valuation allowances related to deferred tax assets.

Non-GAAP net income for the 2012 fourth quarter was a record $19.5 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $13.7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the 2011 fourth quarter. The company recorded non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2012 of $60.7 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared with $43.8 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2011.

Additional non-GAAP information and a reconciliation of our non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures for the 2012 and 2011 fourth quarters and fiscal years may be found in the attached financial tables.

Ixia ended the fourth quarter with approximately $177 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments, compared with $154 million at September 30, 2012.

Non-GAAP Information

To supplement our consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), we have included certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release and in the attachments hereto. Specifically, we have provided non-GAAP financial measures (i.e., non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share) that exclude certain non-cash and/or non-recurring income and expense items such as proceeds and expenses from certain legal and contractual settlements, stock-based compensation expenses, acquisition and other related costs, restructuring expenses, the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and the related income tax effects of these items, as well as certain other non-cash income tax impacts such as changes in the valuation allowance recorded against certain deferred tax assets. The aforementioned items represent income and expense items that may be difficult to estimate from period to period and/or that we believe are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of our business operations. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance the user's overall understanding of our financial performance. We believe that by excluding these items, our non-GAAP measures provide supplemental information to both management and investors that is useful in assessing our core operating performance, in evaluating our ongoing business operations and in comparing our results of operations on a consistent basis from period to period. These non-GAAP financial measures are also used by management to plan and forecast future periods and to assist in making operating and strategic decisions. The presentation of this additional information is not prepared in accordance with GAAP. The information therefore may not necessarily be comparable to that of other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures which are included below in the attached financial tables.

(a) This reconciling item represents stock-based compensation expenses. As stock-based compensation represents a non-cash charge that is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of our business operations, we believe that by excluding stock-based compensation, investors are provided with supplemental information that is useful in comparing our operating results from period to period and in evaluating our core operations and performance. While we expect to continue to recognize stock-based compensation expense in the future, management also excludes this expense when evaluating current performance, forecasting future results, measuring core operating results, and making operating and strategic decisions.
 
(b) This reconciling item represents the amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisitions of various businesses and technologies such as the acquisitions of Catapult Communications Corporation, Agilent Technologies’ N2X Data Network Testing Product line, VeriWave, Inc., Anue Systems, Inc. and BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. As the amortization expense represents a non-cash charge that is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of our business operations, we believe that by excluding the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, we provide investors with supplemental information that is useful in evaluating our ongoing operations and performance. While the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets is expected to continue in the future, management also excludes this expense when evaluating current performance, forecasting future results, measuring core operating results, and making operating and strategic decisions.
 
(c) This reconciling item represents costs associated with acquisition-related activities. Acquisition and other related costs consist primarily of transaction and integration related costs such as success-based banking fees, professional fees for legal, accounting and tax services, integration related consulting fees, amortization of deferred consideration payable to certain pre-acquisition employees of BreakingPoint Systems, Inc., certain employee, facility and infrastructure costs, and other related expenses. We believe that by excluding acquisition and other related costs, we provide investors with supplemental information that is useful in comparing our ongoing operating results from period to period and in evaluating our core operations and performance.
 
(d) This reconciling item represents costs associated with our restructuring/reorganization plans in light of our acquisition of BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. These costs primarily relate to one-time employee termination benefits consisting of severance and other related costs, and costs related to the closure of our office in Melbourne, Australia. We believe that by excluding restructuring costs, we provide investors with supplemental information that is useful in comparing our operating results from period to period and in evaluating our core operations and performance.
 
(e) This reconciling item represents a one-time charge of $900,000 incurred in the first quarter of 2011 to terminate and settle a development contract, a one-time reversal of $900,000 incurred in the fourth quarter of 2011 related to certain legal and contractual matters, a one-time transition charge of $1.7 million incurred in the first quarter of 2012 in connection with the departure of our former CEO and a one-time charge of $401,000 incurred in the second quarter of 2012 to settle a legal matter. We believe that by excluding these charges, we provide our investors with supplemental information that is useful in comparing our operating results from period to period and in evaluating our core operations and performance.
 
(f) This reconciling item relates to the purchase price accounting adjustment associated with the fair value of inventory as a result of the acquisition of BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. recorded in the third and fourth quarters of 2012. While we may have similar charges in the future resulting from purchase price accounting adjustments, management excludes these expenses when evaluating current performance, forecasting future results, measuring core operating results, and making operating and strategic decisions. We believe that by excluding these charges, we provide investors with supplemental information that is useful in comparing our operating results from period to period and in evaluating our core operations and performance.
 
(g) This adjustment represents the income tax effects of the reconciling items noted in footnotes (a), (b), (c), (d), (e) and (f) as well as certain other non-cash income tax impacts such as changes in the valuation allowance relating to the company’s deferred tax assets. We recorded partial release of our valuation allowance of $22.6 million, $12.7 million and $2.1 million, in the second, third and fourth quarters of 2012, respectively.
 
(h) This reconciling item for the non-GAAP diluted earnings per share calculation for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011 and for the three months ended December 31, 2012 includes the impact of the convertible senior notes as these were anti-dilutive for the equivalent GAAP earnings per share calculations.
 
(i) This adjustment represents the effects of stock-based compensation on diluted common equivalent shares outstanding as well as any adjustments required due to a change from a net loss to a net income position.
