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.

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.
