2020-07-28 16:05 ET - News Release

Second Quarter Revenue of $52.5 Million; GAAP Net Income of $3.8 Million, GAAP EPS of $0.05, non-GAAP Net Income of $7.1 Million, non-GAAP EPS of $0.09 and Cash Flow from Operations of $10.5 Million


SAN JOSE, Calif. -- (Business Wire)

A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a leading provider of secure application services and solutions, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Summary

  • Revenue of $52.5 million, up 7% year-over-year.
  • GAAP gross margin of 78.2%; non-GAAP gross margin of 78.8%.
  • GAAP operating expenses of $37.2 million, declined sequentially from $41.8 million in the first quarter of 2020; non-GAAP operating expenses of $34.1 million.
  • GAAP net income of $3.8 million, or $0.05 per share, compared with GAAP net loss of $(5.8) million, or $(0.08) per share in the second quarter of 2019; non-GAAP net income of $7.1 million, or $0.09 per basic and diluted share.
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $9.8 million, an improvement of more than $8.4 million compared with $1.3 million in Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter last year.
  • Ended the quarter with $143.4 million in cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities, compared to $129.9 million dollars as of December 31, 2019.

A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP information is contained in the financial statements below.

“A10 continues to make progress on our business model transformation, resulting in improved earnings power, amidst an uncertain environment,” said Dhrupad Trivedi, President and Chief Executive Officer of A10 Networks. “To date, we have successfully navigated the challenges related to the pandemic and associated economic disruptions. Demand remains strong, though sales cycles, particularly in Asia, have been elongated. Increasingly, our global footprint and customer mix serve as important and durable competitive advantages. We were able to offset revenue declines from Japan and Asia Pacific regions with improvements from North America and EMEA. We maintain a strong market position with service providers and their investment cycles which can last multiple years and result in variable demand levels within a 90-day period.”

“We continue to focus on execution and efficiency to maximize profitability while investing in innovation for our customers,” continued Mr. Trivedi. “On a non-GAAP basis, during the quarter we achieved an $8.2 million improvement in operating income, a $7.4 million improvement in net income, and an $8.4 million improvement in Adjusted EBITDA, on a $3.3 million improvement in revenue compared with the same period last year. We have already achieved our stated goal of eliminating $10 million in operating expenses, with a reduction of over $11 million in the first six months of 2020 compared with the same period in 2019, and we now expect to reduce opex by at least $14 million for the full year. This enhanced operating leverage and global customer mix coupled with our strong balance sheet, with $143.4 million in cash and marketable securities and no debt, positions us well to weather these storms while investing in innovation for our customers. I am truly excited about our growth opportunities with a refreshed portfolio and go-to-market model, including the recently announced partnership with Dell.”

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains “forward-looking statements,” including statements regarding an increasingly efficient organization, an increase in demand for our products, the impact of Covid-19 on our business and near-term visibility, our position to weather the current environment, our continued efforts to improve our profitability, growth opportunities, customer trends, and our ability to achieve our stated goal of eliminating $14 million in operating expenses on an annual basis. Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on assumptions that may prove to be incorrect, which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ include public health requirements in response to the outbreak of Covid-19 and the impact on our business and operations, which is evolving and beyond our control, and the timing of customer orders and product shipments; members of our management team or a significant number of our global employee base becoming ill with Covid-19; changes in government regulations and mandates to address Covid-19 that may adversely impact our ability to continue to operate without disruption; a significant decline in global macroeconomic conditions that have an adverse impact on our business and financial results; challenges to our infrastructure because of the number of employees working from remote locations; business interruptions related to our supply chain; our ability to manage our business and expenses if customers cancel or delay orders; execution risks related to closing key deals and improving our execution; the continued market adoption of our products; our ability to successfully anticipate market needs and opportunities; our timely development of new products and features; our ability to achieve or maintain profitability; any loss or delay of expected purchases by our largest end-customers; our ability to maintain or improve our competitive position; competitive and execution risks related to cloud-based computing trends; our ability to attract and retain new end-customers and our largest end-consumers; our ability to maintain and enhance our brand and reputation, changes demanded by our customers in the deployment and payment model for our products; continued growth in markets relating to network security; the success of any future acquisitions or investments in complementary companies, products, services or technologies; the ability of our sales team to execute well; our ability to shorten our close cycles; the ability of our channel partners to sell our products; variations in product mix or geographic locations of our sales; risks associated with our presence in international markets; weaknesses or deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting; our ability to timely file periodic reports required to be filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934; and other risks that are described in “Risk Factors” in our periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 10, 2020. We do not intend to update or alter our forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by applicable law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP net income (loss) per basic and diluted share, non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and operating margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, and Adjusted EBITDA. Non-GAAP financial measures do not have any standardized meaning and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

A10 Networks considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important because they provide useful measures of the operating performance of the company, exclusive of unusual events or factors that do not directly affect what we consider to be our core operating performance, and are used by the company's management for that purpose.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.

We define non-GAAP net income as our GAAP net income (loss) excluding: (i) stock-based compensation and related payroll tax, (ii) amortization expense related to acquisition and (iii) non-recurring expenses associated with the litigation settlement expense and internal investigation, (iv) restructuring expense, and related tax, and (v) non-recurring facilities expense. We define non-GAAP net income per basic and diluted share as our non-GAAP net income (loss) divided by our basic and diluted weighted-average shares outstanding. We define non-GAAP gross profit as our GAAP gross profit excluding stock-based compensation and related payroll tax. We define non-GAAP gross margin as our non-GAAP gross profit divided by our GAAP revenue. We define non-GAAP operating income (loss) as our GAAP income (loss) from operations excluding (i) stock-based compensation, and related tax, (ii) amortization expense related to acquisition and (iii) non-recurring expenses associated with the litigation settlement expense and internal investigation, (iv) restructuring expense, and related tax, and (v) non-recurring facilities expense. We define non-GAAP operating margin as our non-GAAP operating income (loss) divided by our GAAP revenue. We define non-GAAP operating expenses as our GAAP operating expenses excluding (i) stock-based compensation, and related tax, (ii) amortization expense related to acquisition, (iii) non-recurring expenses associated with the litigation settlement expense and internal investigation, (iv) restructuring expense, and related tax, and (v) non-recurring facilities expense. We define Adjusted EBITDA as our GAAP net income (loss) excluding (i) interest expense, (ii) interest income and other (income) expense, net, (iii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iv) provision for income taxes, (v) stock-based compensation and related payroll tax, (vi) litigation settlement and internal investigation expense (vii) restructuring expense, and related tax, and (viii) non-recurring facilities expense.

We have included our non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss) and operating margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and Adjusted EBITDA in this press release. Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the company's operating results.
