Fiscal Q3 2013 Operational Highlights

  • The integration of the acquisition is proceeding in-line with the target to complete major activities by April 2014
  • Grupo Éxito launched Colombia's first retail-based MVNO leveraging Redknee's cloud offering
  • Demonstrated combined integrated product portfolio, as well as roadmap investment, to support our customers' evolving needs
  • Multi-million dollar customer contracts announced throughout the quarter across all regions

Fiscal Q3 2013 Financial Results
Revenue was $58.6 million compared to $14.8 million in same year-ago quarter. The improvement was primarily due to increased revenue related to the most recent acquisition, as well as license expansions, license upgrades, and third-party hardware and software sales.

Recurring revenue was 54% of total revenue compared to 48% for the same year-ago quarter. The increase was due to a higher level of sales and renewals of customer support services, software subscriptions, and term licenses. Recurring revenue consists of support and maintenance, long-term service contracts, and revenue from term-based licenses.

Gross margin was 55% compared to 71% in the same year-ago. The decrease relates to the change in revenue mix of the acquired business.

Adjusted EBITDA was $7.3 million compared to $2.5 million in the same year-ago quarter (see discussion about the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA, a non-IFRS measure, below).

Net income totaled $80,000 or $0.00 per diluted share compared to $1.7 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the same year-ago quarter. Q3 2013 net income included $3.0 million of costs related to the BSS acquisition.

Contracted order backlog totaled $163.1 million at quarter-end, which included the impact of the acquisition of the BSS business unit.

At June 30, 2013, cash and investments totaled $77.7 million, with net cash of $56.8 million.

The company has drawn $20.9 million of its $50.0 million credit facility with Wells Fargo.

Management Commentary
"During the third quarter, which includes the full contribution from the most recent acquisition, we continued to demonstrate our ability to execute by expanding business with our customers, growing our backlog and focusing on the inherent operating leverage in our software product business," said Lucas Skoczkowski, CEO of Redknee.

"I believe that we have made excellent progress and we are on track with the integration process. Our customers and partners have been very supportive of Redknee's new position in the marketplace, and this has translated into both order and pipeline momentum.

"Today, we have a customer base that spans 200 communications service providers, across 90 countries, including many long-standing relationships with key Tier-1 service providers. Our combined solution portfolio presents new cross-selling and upselling opportunities, and we are committed to providing the highest level of service to our customers. We remain focused on successfully integrating the acquisition and look to expand sales both with new customers, as well as increasing the share of wallet with our existing customers."

About the Presentation of Adjusted EBITDA
Beginning in this first fiscal quarter of 2013, the company has begun to report adjusted EBITDA, which is not a financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income or any other financial measures so calculated and presented, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) from continuing operations excluding amounts for depreciation and amortization, finance costs, finance income, income taxes, foreign exchange (gain) loss, share-based compensation, and expenses related to the acquisition of Business Support System (BSS) assets from Nokia Siemens Networks. EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under IFRS, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for consolidated net income (loss) as a measure of performance.

Other companies (including competitors) may define adjusted EBITDA differently. The company presents adjusted EBITDA because management believes it to be an important supplemental measure of performance that is commonly used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies in Redknee's industry. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting. It may not be indicative of the historical operating results of Redknee or is it intended to be predictive of potential future results. Investors should not consider adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the company's results as reported under IFRS. See "Reconciliation of Net Income (Loss) to adjusted EBITDA" below for further information on this non-IFRS measure.
