Symmetricom Updates Guidance for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2013

SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ: SYMM) updated revenue and earnings per share guidance today for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, ending December 30, 2012.

Second quarter revenue is expected to range from $46.0 to $49.0 million, a revision from previous revenue guidance of $55.0 to $62.0 million. This decrease is due primarily to lower than expected revenue in two areas: U.S. government and domestic communications service provider spending.  Purchases of Symmetricom products by U.S. government customers declined further in the second quarter.  In addition, wireline-related purchases by communications service providers have been soft, most notably in the United States.  Partially offsetting this weakness in the quarter is continued strength in shipments of the company's QuantumTM SA.45s Chip Scale Atomic Clock (CSAC), a key growth initiative for the company.       

"Despite the unexpected financial results this quarter, we continue to see strong long-term demand in our key growth areas such as QuantumTM CSAC, PackeTime® and Government Programs," said Dave Cote, president and chief executive officer of Symmetricom.  "We have focused, and will continue to focus, on controlling our expenses to effectively manage our business through this period of uncertainty."   

As a result of this updated revenue information, the company expects a GAAP loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 in the range of $(0.11) to $(0.05) per share and non-GAAP loss in the range of $(0.05) to $(0.01) per share.  A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP guidance is provided at the end of this press release.

The company expects to report second quarter financial results during the week of January 21, 2013, at which time it will provide more detailed commentary on the company's performance and outlook.

Non-GAAP Information
Certain non-GAAP financial information is included in this press release.  In the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results, Symmetricom excludes certain items related to non-cash equity-based compensation, acquisition related costs, amortization of intangible assets, restructuring charges, and off-shore development transition costs that the company does not consider indicative of its ongoing performance.  The income tax effect after these non-GAAP adjustments is determined based upon Symmetricom's estimate of its annual non-GAAP effective tax rate excluding these non-GAAP adjustments.  Symmetricom believes that excluding such items provides investors, analysts and management with a representation of the Company's core operating performance and with information useful in assessing, in conjunction with GAAP results, underlying trends in operating performance.  Management uses such non-GAAP information to evaluate financial results and to establish operational goals.  Non-GAAP information should not be considered superior to or as a substitute for data prepared in accordance with GAAP.  A reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the GAAP results is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.
