Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $31.8 million, compared to $25.8 million

Gigamon® Inc. (NYSE: GIMO), has released financial results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2014.

Financial Highlights:

  • Revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $31.8 million, compared to $25.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2013, representing growth of 23% year-over-year.
  • GAAP gross margins were 73% in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 79% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Non-GAAP gross margins were 75% in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, compared to 79% in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $8.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  • Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.2 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.

"Our revenue shortfall in the first quarter was impacted by one expected large transaction from an existing customer in EMEA that did not materialize and certain other transactions that were expected to close late in the quarter that slipped into the second quarter," said Paul Hooper, CEO of Gigamon. "We remain confident in our business strategy and in our continued market leadership driven by the versatility and intelligence of our GigaVUE technology and GigaSMART applications platform."

Recent Business Highlights:

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. 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.  Gigamon 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. In addition, investors often use similar measures to evaluate the operating performance of a company. Non-GAAP financial measures are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the company's operating results. The non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Please see the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measure attached to this release.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.

Recently, WebRTC has a lot of eyes from market. The use cases of WebRTC are expanding - video chat, online education, online health care etc. Not only for human-to-human communication, but also IoT use cases such as machine to human use cases can be seen recently. One of the typical use-case is remote camera monitoring. With WebRTC, people can have interoperability and flexibility for deploying monitoring service. However, the benefit of WebRTC for IoT is not only its convenience and interopera...
Vulnerability management is vital for large companies that need to secure containers across thousands of hosts, but many struggle to understand how exposed they are when they discover a new high security vulnerability. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, John Morello, CTO of Twistlock, will address this pressing concern by introducing the concept of the “Vulnerability Risk Tree API,” which brings all the data together in a simple REST endpoint, allowing companies to easily grasp the severity of t...
