Dialogic Inc. (NASDAQ: DLGC), a leading provider of products and technologies that enable operators to provide an enhanced mobile experience, today announced third quarter financial results for the period ending September 30, 2012.

On a GAAP basis, Dialogic achieved the following financial results for the third quarter of 2012 as compared to the third quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2012.

  • Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $42.4 million, compared to $47.4 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $38.6 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Gross margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 61.8%, compared to 59.8% in the third quarter of 2011 and 45.9% in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Operating expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $26.4 million, compared to $37.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $35.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was ($0.3) million, or ($0.03) per share, compared to losses of ($13.1) million, or ($2.09) per share, in the third quarter of 2011 and ($18.0) million, or ($2.85) per share, in the second quarter of 2012. Earnings per share results were calculated on a post-split basis, taking into effect the company’s 5 for 1 reverse stock split, effected on September 14, 2012, retroactively applied for compared periods.

As reflected below in the Reconciliation of Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations to Adjusted EBITDA Results, on a non-GAAP basis, Dialogic achieved the following financial results for the third quarter of 2012, as compared to the third quarter of 2011 and to the second quarter of 2012.

  • Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $42.5 million, compared to $48.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $39.3 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Gross margin for the third quarter of 2012 was 65.3%, compared to 65.3% in the third quarter of 2011 and 65.1% in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Operating expense for the third quarter of 2012 was $23.9 million, compared to $30.3 million in the third quarter of 2011 and $27.5 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 was $3.8 million, compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 and ($2.0) million in the second quarter of 2012.

“Dialogic is pleased to report that the organizational, operational and financial initiatives that have been implemented over the past four quarters are starting to yield better results across key dimensions of our business,” said Kevin Cook, President and CEO. “We are encouraged that our Next-Gen portfolio achieved double digit sequential revenue growth. In addition, we recorded the lowest quarterly non-GAAP operating expenses and the highest adjusted EBITDA for 2012.”

“Our customers continue to reinforce that we are uniquely enabling the integration and delivery of complex video, voice and data services across legacy and Next-Gen IMS/LTE networks,” added Cook. “Throughout the quarter, we demonstrated success in turning up new Next-Gen networks with our ControlSwitch system, enhancing existing networks with our BorderNet session border controllers and expanding the capacity of severely constrained networks with our Session Bandwidth Optimization portfolio. The company’s ability to address the breadth of customer opportunities served us well.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the measures in this press release are non-GAAP financial measures within the meaning of the SEC Regulation G. Dialogic believes that presenting non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors, because it reflects the operating performance of Dialogic. Dialogic management uses these non-GAAP measures as important indicators of the company's past performance and in planning and forecasting performance in future periods. Dialogic considers EBITDA, as adjusted, an important measure of its ability to generate cash flows to fund operating activities, service debt, fund capital expenditures and fund other corporate investing and financing activities. EBITDA, as adjusted, eliminates the non-cash effect of tangible asset depreciation and amortization of intangible assets and stock-based compensation, as well as certain nonrecurring expenses. EBITDA should be considered in addition to, rather than as a substitute for, pre-tax income, net income and cash flows from operating activities. The non-GAAP financial information Dialogic presents may not be comparable to similarly-titled financial measures used by other companies, and investors should not consider non-GAAP financial measures in isolation from, or in substitution for, financial information presented in compliance with GAAP. You are encouraged to review the reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP financial measures included elsewhere in this press release.

In respect of the foregoing, Dialogic provides the following supplemental information to provide additional context for the use and consideration of the non-GAAP financial measures used elsewhere in this press release:

"EBITDA" is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. "Adjusted EBITDA" is defined as EBITDA, plus adjustments for nonrecurring items or other adjustments. Adjusted EBITDA includes EBITDA and also restructuring and integration costs, product rationalization, non-cash stock compensation expense, purchase accounting adjustments, SEC inquiry expenses and other income (expense) items, which includes the change in the fair value of warrants and foreign exchange gain (loss). Dialogic considers Adjusted EBITDA as a key metric in evaluating its financial performance.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small?

17th Cloud Expo, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS – software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, shared some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, a...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo – to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY – is now accepting Hackathon proposals.
