Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and software products for the digital home, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year of 2012, ended December 30, 2012.

"For the fourth quarter, we met the high-end of our revenue guidance with revenue of $31.8 million while recording GAAP operating expenses of $19.3 million, within our guidance range of $19 to 20 million," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "We continued to effectively manage our business and our cash position with cash totaling approximately $31.2 million at year end."

Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, said, "Fiscal 2012 was a pivotal year for Ikanos in which we established a solid baseline of business while reducing portfolio complexity and managing operating expenses and gross margins. We completed the development of our Velocity-3 chipset and launched this industry-first NodeScale vectoring chipset at the October Broadband World Forum. We are pleased with the positive carrier reception we received as well as a number of service providers who have announced their intent to invest Capex on vectored VDSL2."

"We also began the ramp of our Fusiv® family of CPE products early in the year which by Q4 2012 represented 37% of the company's revenue. This family of CPE products brings to market a number of leadership features such as NodeScale vectoring and VDSL2 bonding. Additionally we announced the newest member of this family, our Vx185-HP, at the 2013 CES show."

Financial Details
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), where applicable, excludes the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, the amortization of intangible assets and gains on the sale of impaired assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos' recurring operating results. Ikanos' management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.
