PT Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- PT (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter 2012.

Revenue in the third quarter 2012 amounted to $4.7 million, compared to $9.0 million in the third quarter 2011.  Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 amounted to $18.0 million, compared to $27.1 million during the corresponding period in 2011.

On the basis of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss in the third quarter 2012 amounted to ($1.7 million), or ($.15) per basic share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding, including amortization of purchased intangible assets of $.03 per share and stock-based compensation expense of $.01 per share.  The GAAP net loss in the third quarter 2011 amounted to ($.1 million), or ($.01) per basic share, including a restructuring charge of $.01 per share, an impairment charge of $.04 per share, amortization of purchased intangible assets of $.03 per share and stock-based compensation expense of $.01 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.

The GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 amounted to ($3.1 million), or ($.28) per basic share, including amortization of purchased intangible assets of $.08 per share and stock-based compensation expense of $.02 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.  The GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 amounted to ($1.6 million), or ($.15) per basic share, including a restructuring charge of $.02 per share, an impairment charge of $.04 per share, amortization of purchased intangible assets of $.07 per share, litigation expenses of $.04 per share, and stock-based compensation expense of $.02 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.

The non-GAAP net loss in the third quarter 2012 amounted to ($1.3 million), or ($.12) per basic share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $.7 million, or $.07 per share in the third quarter 2011.  The non-GAAP net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 amounted to ($2.1 million), or ($.19) per basic share, compared to net income of $.5 million, or $.04 per share for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.  Please refer to the reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures contained in this release.

On September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and investments amounting to $14.7 million, working capital of $17.1 million and no long-term debt.

"We are extremely dissatisfied with our third quarter results," said John Slusser, president and chief executive officer.   "After experiencing a dramatic slowdown in telecommunications equipment revenue during the second quarter 2012, we surveyed our customer base to get an updated view of their going forward product requirements and had mixed results.  Our service provider customers generally expect to make additional investments in their network infrastructure while our OEM customers were more reluctant to project requirements because of little or no visibility of demand from their end customers.  Based upon the feedback received and ongoing global economic climate uncertainty, we have concluded that our quarterly revenue run rates will likely not return to the first quarter 2012 level in the near term.  Given this circumstance, we implemented a program to bring our operations more in line with anticipated business opportunities."

On October 31, 2012, PT announced a program to restructure its operations, reduce its workforce, rationalize its product lines, and refocus its resources on initiatives that are more closely aligned with the Company's near-term objectives and market potential.  Specifically, the Company is reducing its personnel by fourteen employees or 10% of its workforce and is recording a non-cash impairment charge against certain of PT's software development costs and purchased intangible assets.  As a result of this action, the Company expects to incur fourth quarter 2012 pre-tax restructuring charges of approximately $.5 million, representing employee-related costs which will result in cash expenditures, and approximately $.8 million, which will be recorded as a non-cash impairment charge.  The Company currently estimates that the full annualized cost savings resulting from this restructuring program will be in the range of $1.3 million to $1.5 million in 2013.

Forward-Looking Statements

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe harbor" for certain forward-looking statements.  This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and financial performance, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is subject to the safe harbor provisions of those Sections.  The Company's future operating results are subject to various risks and uncertainties and could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements and may be affected by various trends and factors which are beyond the Company's control.  These risks and uncertainties include, among other factors, business and economic conditions, rapid technological changes accompanied by frequent new product introductions, competitive pressures, dependence on key customers and the potential loss of key customers, inability to gauge order flows from customers, fluctuations in quarterly and annual results, the reliance on a limited number of third party suppliers, limitations of PT's manufacturing capacity and arrangements, the protection of PT's proprietary technology, errors or defects in our products, the effects of pending or threatened litigation, the dependence on key personnel, changes in critical accounting estimates, potential impairments related to investments, foreign regulations, possible loss or significant curtailment of significant government contracts or subcontracts, and potential material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting.  In addition, during weak or uncertain economic periods, customers' visibility deteriorates causing delays in the placement of their orders.  These factors often result in a substantial portion of PT's revenue being derived from orders placed within a quarter and shipped in the final month of the same quarter.  Forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with the most recent audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Notes thereto, Risk Factors, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of the Company, as contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As a supplement to the GAAP-based consolidated financial statements contained in this press release, the Company is providing a presentation of non-GAAP financial measures which can be useful to investors to gain an overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance.  Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by excluding certain expenses the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.  The non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses such as the effects of (a) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation, (c) restructuring costs, (d) litigation expenses and (e) impairment charges – vendor software. 

Management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions and forecasting and planning for future periods.  We also consider the use of the non-GAAP financial measures to be helpful in assessing various aspects of our business operations.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered a substitute for the corresponding GAAP financial information and should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial information. 

A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is included herein. 

A conference call will be held on Monday, November 12, at 10:00 a.m., New York time, to discuss the results. All institutional investors can participate in the conference by dialing (866) 494-3746 or (416) 915-1196. The call will be available simultaneously for all other investors at (866) 494-3387 or (416) 915-1198. A digital recording of this conference call may be accessed immediately after its completion from November 12 through November 16, 2012. To access the recording, participants should dial (866) 245-6755 or (416) 915-1035 using passcode 510179.

The value of purchased intangible assets increased significantly as a result of the acquisition of the USP and SP2000 signaling technologies from GENBAND in January 2011.

(b)    Stock-based compensation costs: a non-cash expense incurred in accordance with share-based compensation accounting guidance.

(c)   Restructuring costs: costs incurred as a result of restructuring activities taken to bring operating expenses more in line with expected revenues. 

(d)  Litigation expenses: legal expenses not indicative of core operating activities.

(e)  Impairment charge - vendor software - One-time impairment charge recorded in connection with the termination of a marketing reseller agreement with a vendor, not indicative of core operating activities.

(f)  Basic and diluted net income per common share are identical for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011.
