SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBNT), a next-generation communications technology company, today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013, ended September 30, 2012.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, Ubiquiti reported revenues of $61.5 million, a decrease of 22% compared to revenues of $79.2 million for the same period the prior year.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, GAAP net income was $13.2 million, a decrease of 39% compared to GAAP net income of $21.5 million for the same period the prior year. Non-GAAP net income was $13.6 million, a decrease of 37% compared to $21.7 million for the same period last year.

The following table reconciles GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income and weighted-average shares used in computing net income per share of common stock-diluted to weighted-average shares used in computing non-GAAP Diluted EPS:

  Three Months Ended September 30,
  2012 2011
  (in thousands, except per share data)
  (unaudited)
Net income  $ 13,179  $ 21,493
Stock-based compensation, net of taxes 393 211
Non-GAAP net income  $ 13,572  $ 21,704
Weighted-average shares used in computing net income per share of common stock- diluted 92,925 62,717

Weighted-average shares of Series A preferred shares outstanding 26,873
Weighted-average shares used in computing non-GAAP diluted EPS (1) 92,925 93,467
Non-GAAP diluted EPS (1)  $ 0.15  $ 0.23
     
(1) Non-GAAP Diluted EPS is calculated using non-GAAP net income excluding stock-based compensation, net of taxes and weighted-average shares outstanding as if Series A preferred stock is treated as common stock for the periods presented.    

"Profitability, although down, has still remained strong with a 27% operating margin, $0.15 earnings per share, and approximately $14 million of non-GAAP net-income, reflecting the robust fundamentals of our strong business model. We have made significant legal and operational infrastructure improvements that have resulted in a series of anti-counterfeit successes, decreased lead times, and a return of stronger order flow," said Robert J. Pera, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ubiquiti Networks. "Ubiquiti is not just about our AirMax wireless Internet distribution system. With our new product categories now accounting for 25% of our business, and up approximately 500% year over year, we are a fully diversified Internet Protocol technology platforms company with exciting solutions for Wireless LAN (UniFi), Video Surveillance (AirVision), AirFiber (microwave backhaul), mFi (machine to machine communications), and EdgeMax (advanced routing). This company has a history of demonstrating an extraordinary ability to dynamically evolve and conquer challenges. And to this end, we have made fundamental changes to our infrastructure to ensure our long-term success."

The Company also announced that its Chief Financial Officer, John Ritchie, plans to leave the Company to pursue other opportunities. The Company has initiated a search for a new CFO. Mr. Ritchie plans to remain with the Company through December 31, 2012 to ensure a seamless transition. 

"I would like to extend my sincere thanks to John for his contributions to Ubiquiti and we wish him all the best in the future," said Pera.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are adjusted to exclude certain recurring costs, expenses and gains such as stock based compensation expense and the tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments. In addition, our non-GAAP adjustments present shares of Series A preferred stock as if these shares had been converted to common stock throughout the periods presented. Reconciliations of the adjustments to GAAP results for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 are provided below. In addition, an explanation of the ways in which management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management's decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, the material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under "About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments" after the tables below. 

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain recurring costs, expenses and gains. 

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses, significant recurring items that we believe are important to understanding our financial, and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures used by Ubiquiti Networks

We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of recurring stock-based compensation expense and the tax effect of these adjustments. In addition, our non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is calculated using weighted-average shares outstanding as if Series A preferred stock outstanding had been converted to common stock throughout the periods presented. Examples of items excluded from net income are:

  • Stock-based compensation expense is recognized in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification, Topic 718, Stock Compensation.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income" and "Reconciliation of Weighted-Average Shares Used in Computing Net Income (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock-Diluted to Weighted-Average Shares Used In Computing Non-GAAP Diluted EPS" included in this press release.
