RADVISION Revises Outlook for 2011 First Quarter
- Revenue Forecast Reduced Mainly Due to Lower than Expected Cisco Sales -
TEL AVIV, Israel (April 04, 2011) – RADVISION® (Nasdaq: RVSN) announced today that based on preliminary results, the Company now expects to report revenues for the first quarter of 2011 of approximately $20.5 to $21.0 million. As a result, the net loss for the first quarter of 2011 is expected to range from $0.15 to $0.19 per diluted share on a GAAP basis and from $0.10 to $0.14 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis. This compares with its forecast on February 10, 2011 that revenues for the 2011 first quarter would approximate $24 million, that the net loss would be $0.04 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, and that net income would be $0.01 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis. The non-GAAP amounts exclude stock-based compensation expense of $0.6 million in accordance with ASC 718 and amortization of purchased intangible assets of $0.5 million.
The first quarter outlook is primarily the result of lower than anticipated Video Business Unit (VBU) revenues from Cisco, which are now expected to total approximately $2 million, compared to about $5 million originally forecasted. While the Company had expected Cisco revenues to decline progressively each quarter following Cisco’s acquisition of Tandberg in 2010 as previously reported, the decline in the first quarter of 2011 was much steeper than expected. For the balance of 2011, the Company expects its revenues from Cisco to continue near the baseline level of approximately $2 million on average per quarter. The Company noted that its VBU revenues increased more than 55% over the first quarter of 2010 when revenues from Cisco are excluded from both periods. The Company also noted the strong performance of its Technology Business Unit (TBU) in the first quarter.
Boaz Raviv, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “While the slippage in Cisco revenues was unfortunate, we have been successfully building our future beyond Cisco for the past several quarters and continued to make important progress through further technology development, our successful entry into the room conferencing market and channel expansion. We are confident we have the right strategy to drive future growth.”
The Company will provide full details for the first quarter of 2011 when it reports final results on May 5, 2011.
