2012 Third Quarter, Fourth Quarter and Full Year Outlook

The Company's outlook is based on current indications for its business, which may change during the current quarter. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP to GAAP outlook and a statement on the use of non-GAAP financial measures are included at the end of this press release. All figures exclude the impact of the proposed acquisition of NET, which was announced on June 19, 2012, unless otherwise noted.

For the third quarter of 2012, management provides the following outlook on a non-GAAP basis:

  • Total revenue of $51 million to $53 million
  • SBC total revenue, including maintenance and services, of $17 million to $19 million, up 23% to 37% from the third quarter of 2011
    • SBC product revenue of $14 million to $16 million, up 35% to 54% from the third quarter of 2011
  • Gross margins between 58% and 59%

  • Loss per share of $0.03
  • Basic shares of 280 million
  • Cash and investments of approximately $300 million, assuming the NET acquisition closes in the third quarter

For the fourth quarter of 2012, management provides the following outlook on a non-GAAP basis:

  • Total revenue of $84 million to $86 million
  • SBC total revenue, including maintenance and services, of $22 million to $25 million
    • SBC product revenue of $19 million to $22 million
  • Gross margins between 58% and 59%
  • Operating expenses of $38 million to $39 million
  • Diluted earnings per share of $0.04
  • Diluted shares of 282 million

Management reiterates the following outlook on a non-GAAP basis for the year ending December 31, 2012:

  • Total SBC revenue, including maintenance and services, between $75 million and $80 million, up 44% to 54% year over year
    • SBC product revenue between $60 million and $65 million, up 58% to 72% year over year

Management provides the following updated outlook on a non-GAAP basis for the year ending December 31, 2012:

  • Total revenue of approximately $257 million to $261 million
  • Gross margins of approximately 60%
  • Operating expenses reduced to between $165 million and $166 million
  • Loss per share of $0.04

Restructuring

In August 2012, the Company initiated a plan to streamline operations and reduce operating costs, including a corporate-wide restructuring plan. In the third quarter of fiscal 2012 the Company expects to record restructuring expense of approximately $2.3 million for severance and related expenses. These initiatives are expected to reduce third quarter and fourth quarter 2012 non-GAAP operating expenses by approximately $2 million and $3 million, respectively, compared to second quarter 2012 non-GAAP operating expenses of $41.7 million.

"Our team is effectively transforming Sonus, as evidenced by our strong SBC results this quarter, which exceeded our expectations," said Ray Dolan, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Demand for our SBC solutions continues to grow, allowing us to reaffirm our SBC outlook for the year. Given the current environment, we are taking proactive cost reduction measures to ensure that Sonus has a business model which should accelerate our path to profitability while enabling us to continue to grow our SBC business," Dolan continued. "We will continue to invest in SBC as we remain optimistic about our growth prospects, which are driven by a highly competitive portfolio of SBC products."

NET Proposed Acquisition

The Company's proposed acquisition of NET, which was announced on June 19, 2012, is projected to result in incremental revenue of approximately $5 million in the third quarter and $10 million to $12 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012, assuming the transaction closes by the end of August as currently anticipated. The Company expects the acquisition to have a $0.01 dilutive to break-even impact on non-GAAP EPS for the balance of the year. As noted above, the previous Sonus outlook provided by management for the third and fourth quarters of 2012 and the full year ending December 31, 2012 excludes the impact of the proposed acquisition of NET except where specifically indicated.

The information in this release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this report are forward-looking statements. Without limiting the foregoing, the words "anticipates", "believes", "could", "estimates", "expects", "intends", "may", "plans", "seeks", "projects" and other similar language, whether in the negative or affirmative, are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.

Examples of forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the following: plans, objectives, outlook, goals, strategies, future events or performance, trends, investments, customer growth, operational performance and costs, liquidity and financial positions, competition, estimated expenditures and investments, impacts of laws, rules and regulations, revenues and earnings, performance and other statements that are other than statements of historical facts. Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. They are neither statements of historical fact nor guarantees or assurances of future performance. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to, the timing of our recognition of revenues; our ability to recruit and retain key personnel; difficulties supporting our new strategic focus on channel sales; difficulties retaining and expanding our customer base; difficulties leveraging market opportunities; restructuring activities; our ability to realize benefits from acquisitions (including with respect to the proposed acquisition of Network Equipment Technologies, Inc.); litigation; actions taken by significant stockholders; difficulties providing solutions that meet the needs of customers; market acceptance of our products and services; rapid technological and market change; our ability to protect our intellectual property rights; our ability to maintain partner, reseller, distribution and vendor support and supply relationships; higher risks in international operations and markets; the impact of increased competition; currency fluctuations; changes in the market price of our common stock; and/or failure or circumvention of our controls and procedures. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in these forward-looking statements are discussed in Part I, Item 2 "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations", Part I, Item 3 "Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk" and Part II, Item 1A "Risk Factors" in the Company's most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Sonus management uses a number of 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 consistent 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 costs, including, but not limited to: stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related costs and restructuring. We also consider the use of non-GAAP earnings per share helpful in assessing the organic performance of the continuing operations of our business. By organic performance we mean performance as if we had owned an acquired business in the same period a year ago. While our management uses these 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 ability of readers of our financial statements to compare our operating results to our historical results and to other companies in our industry.

We exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets from non-GAAP expense and income measures. These amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency 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, and provides meaningful information regarding our liquidity.

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 organic continuing operations of the acquired businesses and accordingly, they are generally not relevant in assessing or estimating the long-term performance of the acquired assets. 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. By excluding acquisition-related costs from our non-GAAP measures, management is better able to evaluate our ability to utilize our existing assets and estimate the long-term value that acquired assets will generate for the Company.

We expect to record approximately $2.3 million of restructuring expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 for severance and related costs. We believe that excluding restructuring expenses facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry and provides meaningful information regarding our liquidity.

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 allows 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.

Statement on the Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures and
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures
(unaudited)
 
 
To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"), the Company discloses certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Gross margin - product, Gross margin - service, Total gross profit, Total gross margin, Research and development expense, Sales and marketing expense, General and administrative expense, Operating expenses, Loss (income) from operations, Net (loss) income, and (Loss) per share/diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP financial measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they intended to be a substitute for, GAAP. 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.
 
We use a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, making operating decisions, planning and forecasting future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs. We consider the use of these non-GAAP financial measures helpful in assessing the core performance of our continuing operations and liquidity, and when planning and forecasting future periods. We define continuing operations as the ongoing revenues and expenses of the business, excluding certain items. These excluded items for the periods presented are stock-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets. We do not include any income tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments as we were unable to recognize a tax benefit on domestic losses incurred in any of the periods presented; accordingly, no adjustment to income taxes for non-GAAP items is required.
 
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 the Company's GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in the Company's financial results for the foreseeable future.
 
Stock-Based Compensation
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 ability of readers of our financial statements to compare our operating results to our historical results and to other companies in our industry.
 
Amortization of Intangible Assets
On January 15, 2010, we entered into an intellectual property asset purchase and license agreement with Winphoria, Inc. ("Winphoria") and Motorola, Inc. ("Motorola") to purchase certain of Winphoria's software code and related patents and to license certain other intellectual property from Winphoria and Motorola. The purchase price included an initial payment of $2.0 million and future potential royalty payments dependent upon future sales of certain of our products that include the Winphoria technology that was purchased or licensed. In connection with this transaction we recorded identifiable intangible assets which we have classified as developed technology and that are being amortized on a straight-line basis over five years, the expected useful life of the technology. The amortization expense for these identifiable intangible assets is charged to Research and development expense. 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, and provides meaningful information regarding our liquidity.

On June 18, 2012, we and Network Equipment Technologies, Inc. ("NET") entered into a definitive agreement for Sonus to acquire NET in a cash merger. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2012, subject to NET stockholder approval, the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and any applicable regulatory reviews. We exclude certain expense items resulting from both pending and completed acquisitions, including legal, accounting and advisory fees associated with acquisitions; costs related to integrating the acquired businesses; and restructuring costs. We believe that excluding these acquisition-related expenses from our operating results, which we would not otherwise have incurred in the normal course of our business operations, facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.
 
Restructuring

We expect to record approximately $2.3 million of restructuring expense in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 for severance and related costs. We believe that excluding restructuring expenses facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry and provides meaningful information regarding our liquidity.
