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.

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
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) i...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
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, discussed 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 t...
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 @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Windstream, a leading provider of advanced network and cloud communications, has been named “Silver Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 16th International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on June 9–11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York, NY.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect. Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, has more than nineteen years' experience managing global security operations and assessments, including a decade of leading incident response and digital forensics.
