"We posted a solid second quarter of operating results and finished the first half of 2017 with momentum in several critical areas.  We saw greater contribution from software-based revenue in the second quarter, which led to higher gross margins and stronger financial performance than we expected," said Raymond Dolan, Sonus president and chief executive officer.  "We had solid bookings and good linearity in the second quarter, and we are off to a strong start in the third quarter.  The large project to cutover a Tier 1 VoLTE network in North America is now carrying live traffic, and we expect it will convert to revenue in the third quarter.  This is another pure software deployment and should contribute to even stronger margins in the second half of the year."

Management Comments and Outlook
"We've been investing in virtualization for many years, and those investments are now starting to pay off in several strategic engagements.  Our large competitive displacement of the incumbent in a North American Tier 1 has already led to a recent win in Mexico to replace an incumbent SBC supplier with our SBC 7000, which we expect to generate revenue in the fourth quarter.  We are increasingly viewed as a trusted partner as global service providers continue their move to the cloud," said Dolan.  "On the security front, we announced Fortinet as a second technology partner as we build an ecosystem to define a common network perimeter for securing all flows for the enterprise.  This will contribute to a managed service offering that can be provided by these service providers going forward, with the first one expected to launch commercially in the third quarter.  This progress has been a significant driver in our selection by multiple customers to provide our software-based SBC as a core element of their cloud-based edge architectures.  Additionally, in July we received JITC certification for our software-based SBC (SWe), making Sonus the only SW-based vendor-agnostic SBC on the approved list for government purchasing that provides carrier grade resiliency, scale and functionality.  Taken together these are significant proof points that our R&D investments are driving opportunities to lead in the new software-based architectures in the years ahead."

Susan Villare, Sonus interim chief financial officer, commented, "Our third quarter outlook is solid.  We anticipate revenue will be between $70 million and $72 million, with GAAP diluted earnings per share between $0.05 and $0.08 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share between $0.171 and $0.201.  For the full year, our visibility is less certain as a result of the ongoing trend in customer consolidation.  For example, we now anticipate that the consummation of the merger of two large Tier 1 service providers could result in a reduction in revenue on a year-over-year basis.  Accordingly, our full year revenue outlook no longer supports year-over-year growth and we are now revising our outlook for full year revenue to be flat to a low single-digit percentage decline compared to 2016.  We expect our GAAP loss per share will approximate $0.462 and our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share will be $0.261,2."

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Sonus management uses several different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, making operating decisions, planning and forecasting future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs.  Our annual financial plan is prepared both on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, and the non-GAAP annual financial plan is approved by our board of directors.  Continuous budgeting and forecasting for revenue and expenses are conducted on a non-GAAP basis (in addition to GAAP) and actual results on a non-GAAP basis are assessed against the annual financial plan.  We consider the use of non-GAAP financial measures helpful in assessing the core performance of our continuing operations and liquidity, and when planning and forecasting future periods.  By continuing operations, we mean the ongoing results of the business excluding certain expenses and credits, including, but not limited to: stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, patent litigation settlement expense, acquisition-related expense, restructuring, certain gains and losses included in other income (expense) and deferred income tax adjustments.  We consider the use of non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share helpful in assessing the performance of the continuing operations of our business.  While our management uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance their understanding of certain aspects of our financial performance, our management does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP measures.  In addition, our presentations of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.  These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered alternatives for, or in isolation from, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool.  In particular, many of the adjustments to Sonus' financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future.

Stock-based compensation is different from other forms of compensation, as it is a non-cash expense.  For example, a cash salary generally has a fixed and unvarying cash cost.  In contrast, the expense associated with an equity-based award is generally unrelated to the amount of cash ultimately received by the employee, and the cost to us is based on a stock-based compensation valuation methodology and underlying assumptions that may vary over time.  We believe that excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense from our operating results facilitates the comparison of our financial statements to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

We exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets from non-GAAP expense and income measures.  These amortization amounts are inconsistent in frequency and amount and are significantly impacted by the timing and size of acquisitions.  Although we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets from our non-GAAP expenses, we believe that it is important for investors to understand that intangible assets contribute to revenue generation.  We believe that excluding the non-cash amortization of intangible assets facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry as if the acquired intangible assets had been developed internally rather than acquired.

In June 2016, we recorded $0.6 million of patent litigation settlement costs.  This amount is included as a component of General and administrative expense; however, we believe that such patent litigation settlement costs are not part of our core business or ongoing operations.  Accordingly, we believe that excluding this patent litigation settlement expense facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

We consider certain transition, integration and other acquisition-related costs to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that may be outside of our control.  We do not consider these acquisition-related costs to be related to the continuing operations of the acquired business or the Company.  In addition, the size, complexity and/or volume of an acquisition, which often drives the magnitude of acquisition-related costs, may not be indicative of such future costs.  We believe that excluding acquisition-related costs facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

We have recorded restructuring expense to streamline operations and reduce operating costs by closing and consolidating certain facilities and reducing our worldwide workforce.  We review our restructuring accruals regularly and record adjustments (both expense and credits) to these estimates as required.  We believe that excluding restructuring expense and credits facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry, as there are no future revenue streams or other benefits associated with these costs.

In May 2017, we sold a block of IP addresses that we had acquired in connection with our acquisition of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. and recognized a gain, net of commission and fees, of $0.6 million.  This amount is included as a component of Other income, net, in the three and six months ended June 30, 2017.  We believe that such gains are not part of our core business or ongoing operations.  Accordingly, we believe that excluding the other income arising from this sale facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical results and to other companies in our industry.

We anticipate that we will reverse $0.7 million of deferred tax assets related to net operating loss carryforwards for our subsidiary in Canada based on positive earnings evidence in the subsidiary over a consecutive three-year period.  This adjustment will result in an income tax credit and reduce our provision in the reversal period.  We believe that such adjustments are not part of our core business or ongoing operations.  Accordingly, we believe that excluding the income tax credit arising from the reversal of the deferred tax assets facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical results and to other companies in our industry.

We believe that providing non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, will allow investors to view the financial results in the way management views the operating results.  We further believe that providing this information helps investors to better understand our financial performance and evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by our management to evaluate and measure such performance.
