FREMONT, Calif. -- Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2014, ended June 29, 2014.

"We achieved second quarter revenue of $11.3 million, within our guidance, while exceeding our margin expectations with a GAAP gross profit of 49%," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "During the quarter, we continued to effectively manage our business and cash position, recording operating expenses of $17.5 million, at the low-end of the guidance, with cash and short-term investments totaling $20.6 million at quarter end."

Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos, said, "As anticipated, the rapid drop in demand for our legacy products in certain maturing markets, most notably Korea, resulted in a decline in revenue for the second quarter. While we navigate through our revenue transition, we have taken meaningful steps to manage operating expenses which we expect to result in up to a 20% reduction in costs for the second half of 2014, as compared to the first half of 2014. In the meantime, our new products continue to show positive momentum, with Velocity-3 and inSIGHT making great progress at carrier trials and Vx500 receiving tremendous market interest following its official roll-out at Computex in June."

Financial Details

Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP gross profits and non-GAAP operating expenses, where applicable, exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and the amortization of intangible assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2014 was $11.3 million, compared to revenue of $19.1 million for the second quarter of 2013 and revenue of $14.5 million for the first quarter of 2014. GAAP gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 was 49%, compared to a GAAP gross profit of 49% for the second quarter of 2013 and GAAP gross profit of 49% for the first quarter of 2014.

Outlook

Revenue is expected to be between $11.0 million and $13.0 million for the third quarter of 2014.

"While we anticipate returning to revenue growth by year end, the third quarter is expected to remain sequentially flat," said Tahernia. "This is due to a combination of two factors; our reduced but now stable legacy revenue, and delay in customer ramps of certain new multi-mode gateway designs."

GAAP gross profit for the third quarter of 2014 is expected to be between 48% and 50%. Non-GAAP gross profit is expected to be between 49% and 51% for third quarter of 2014. GAAP operating expenses for third quarter of 2014 are expected to be in the range of $14.5 million to $15.5 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be in the range of $13.5 million to $14.5 million for third quarter of 2014. GAAP net loss for third quarter of 2014 is expected to be in the range of approximately $(8.3) million to $(10.5) million, or a GAAP loss per share of $(0.08) to $(0.11). Non-GAAP net loss is expected to be in the range of approximately $(7.2) million to $(9.4) million, or a non-GAAP loss per share of $(0.07) to $(0.09).
