NETGEAR® Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

- Fourth quarter 2012 net revenue of $310.4 million, as compared to $309.2 million in the comparable prior year quarter

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NETGEAR, Inc. (NASDAQGM: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative products to consumers, businesses and service providers, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $310.4 million, as compared to $309.2 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011, and $315.2 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.  Net income, computed in accordance with GAAP, for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $16.1 million, or $0.41 per diluted share.  This compared to GAAP net income of $22.8 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011, and GAAP net income of $23.8 million, or 0.61 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2012. 

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 30.0%, as compared to 31.1% in the year ago comparable quarter, and 31.6% in the third quarter of 2012.  Non-GAAP operating margin was 11.4% in the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to 12.4% in the fourth quarter of 2011, and 11.5% in the third quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net income was $0.55 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2012, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.69 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2011, and non-GAAP net income of $0.65 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.

Our non-GAAP tax rate was 39.4% in the fourth quarter 2012, as compared to 30.5% in the fourth quarter of 2011, and 30.3% in the third quarter of 2012. The higher fourth quarter 2012 tax rate reflects a shift in revenues and profits, to the Americas where tax rates are higher. The fourth quarter 2012 non-GAAP tax rate also did not include any one-time tax rate benefit which was included in the tax rate for the third quarter of 2012, and which accounted for an incremental $0.05 per diluted share of earnings for the third quarter of 2012.

Net revenue for the full year 2012 was $1.27 billion, a 7.7% increase as compared to $1.18 billion for 2011. Non-GAAP income from operations for the full year 2012 was $147.7 million, as compared to non-GAAP income from operations of $145.8 million for the full year 2011. Net income, computed in accordance with GAAP, for 2012 was $86.5 million, or $2.23 per diluted share.  This net income was a 5.4% decrease compared to net income of $91.4 million, for 2011. Earnings per share, computed in accordance with GAAP, was $2.41 per diluted share for the full year 2011.

The differences between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments, net of any tax effect, for amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation, restructuring and other charges, acquisition related compensation and expense, impact to cost of sales from acquisition accounting adjustments to inventory, litigation reserves, and gain on sale of cost method investment. The accompanying schedules provide a reconciliation of financial measures computed on a GAAP basis to financial measures computed on a non-GAAP basis.

Patrick Lo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NETGEAR commented, "The worldwide macroeconomic environment proved challenging for us during the second half of 2012. In the fourth quarter, we witnessed reduced spending among our service provider customers and Commercial Business Unit customers. Despite this, our Retail Business Unit experienced the best fourth quarter sequential growth in the last three years. We are very pleased with the share gain against our retail competitors worldwide. We introduced 32 new products in the fourth quarter of 2012 and once again, we were a double honoree this year in the CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards competition."

"Our fourth quarter 2012 Retail Business Unit net revenue was up 12% sequentially, and up 5% for the full year. The fourth quarter was a record quarter in terms of net revenue for our Retail Business Unit driven by strong share gain in the U.S. and other international markets. Our fourth quarter 2012 Service Provider Business Unit net revenue was down 12% sequentially, but up an impressive 25% year-over-year for the full year of 2012.  Upon closing, we expect our recently announced acquisition of the Sierra Wireless, Inc. AirCard business to drive global growth for our Service Provider Business Unit by combining a world-class LTE engineering team with our world-class Wi-Fi engineering team. We believe that fixed mobile broadband gateways will be the internet access device of choice for the estimated four and a half billion people currently not connected to high speed broadband internet because of poor wireline telecommunications infrastructure. The AirCard acquisition is a significant step forward in addressing this nascent market. Our fourth quarter 2012 Commercial Business Unit net revenue was down 7% sequentially and down 7% for the full year due to cautious spending for information technology in the uncertain business climate, especially in Europe."

Christine Gorjanc, Chief Financial Officer of NETGEAR, said, "While the slowdown faced in the second half of 2012 has been challenging, we remain committed to pursuing the growth opportunities we see in Smart Homes, Next Generation Service Providers and 21st Century SMBs. We are maintaining financial discipline while continuing to drive innovation with historically higher expenditures in research and development. Our research and development expenditure allows us to execute our first-to-market strategy and consistently meet the demand for next generation wireless connectivity products within the markets that we serve. We maintain a strong balance sheet and continue to closely manage our expenses, inventory and cash."

Mr. Lo added, "Looking forward, our plan for 2013 calls for organic growth in revenue and profits with further incremental growth once the AirCard acquisition is complete.  We expect the first half of 2013 to be tempered by reduced spending from our service provider customers and macroeconomic uncertainty with growth in the second half of the year.  Specifically, we expect first quarter 2013 net revenue to be in the range of $290 to $305 million and non-GAAP operating margin between 11% and 12%, which does not include revenues or costs associated with the AirCard acquisition. For the full year 2013, we expect our annualized non-GAAP tax rate to be approximately 33%."

"In 2013, we expect to continue to drive growth via aggressive new product introductions. We currently expect our 802.11ac WiFi equipment, 4G LTE fixed mobile gateways, Home Automation and Monitoring systems, 10Gigabit Ethernet switches, and Unified Storage to be key new revenue drivers. From a long-term perspective, we are confident in the growth prospects we see in providing Internet connectivity devices for homes, and small and medium businesses. As the number of connected devices worldwide grows at an increasing rate, we expect to expand our business to meet the demands of our customers in each of the markets that we serve."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information:
To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, NETGEAR uses non-GAAP financial measures, which are adjusted to exclude certain expenses and tax benefits, where applicable.  We believe non-GAAP financial measures are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of NETGEAR's underlying operational results and trends and our marketplace performance. For example, the non-GAAP results are an indication of our baseline performance before charges that are considered by management to be outside of our core operating results. In addition, these adjusted non-GAAP results are among the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
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 Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share 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, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...

With the iCloud scandal seemingly in its past, Apple announced new iPhones, updates to iPad and MacBook as well as news on OSX Yosemite. Although consumers will have to wait to get their hands on some of that new stuff, what they can get is the latest release of iOS 8 that Apple made available for most in-market iPhones and iPads. Originally announced at WWDC (Apple’s annual developers conference) in June, iOS 8 seems to spearhead Apple’s newfound focus upon greater integration of their products into everyday tasks, cross-platform mobility and self-monitoring. Before you update your device, here is a look at some of the new features and things you may want to consider from a mobile security perspective.
