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 first quarter of 2014, ended March 30, 2014.

"We achieved first-quarter revenue and gross profits within our guidance, with revenue of $14.5 million and a GAAP gross profit of 49%, while recording operating expenses of $17.5 million, near the mid-point of our guidance," said Dennis Bencala, CFO of Ikanos. "During the quarter, we continued to effectively manage our business and cash position, with cash totaling $33.7 million and inventory of $1.3 million at quarter end."

Omid Tahernia, president and CEO of Ikanos, said, "Our design win pipeline and new product revenue continued with positive momentum into 2014. We ended the first quarter with several new design wins for both access and gateway processors. For the first time, we have a Velocity™-3 based OEM system in a large carrier lab being qualified for deployment. We are also seeing very positive progress with our diversification strategy, winning new tenders in South America for 2014 revenue. The demand for our Vx500 gateway processor family is also on the rise. We announced our first LTE gateway design win with this new family at Mobile World Congress in February, and anticipate more OEM and ODM design activities in the second quarter."

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), non-GAAP gross profits and non-GAAP operating expenses, where applicable, exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and the amortization of intangible 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.

For a more complete review of our 2014 results and year-over-year comparisons please see the attached financial schedules.

Outlook

Revenue is expected to be between $11 million and $13 million for the second quarter of 2014.

"The key factor contributing to the short-term decline in overall revenue was the lower demand in certain maturing markets, namely Japan and Korea, which have had a significant impact on our legacy product revenue," said Tahernia. "Revenue in Korea in particular dropped to historic lows. This is a trend we expect to continue to see in those regions. However, we anticipate great demand for G.fast in both regions, which should present the next cycle of growth for Ikanos."

GAAP gross profit for the second quarter of 2014 is expected to be between 46% and 48%. Non-GAAP gross profit is expected to be between 47% and 49% for second quarter of 2014. GAAP operating expenses for second quarter of 2014 are expected to be in the range of $17.5 million to $18.5 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be in the range of $16.5 million to $17.5 million for second quarter of 2014. GAAP net loss for second quarter of 2014 is expected to be in the range of approximately $(11.6) million to $(13.7) million, or a GAAP loss per share of $(0.12) to $(0.14). Non-GAAP net loss is expected to be in the range of approximately $(10.4) million to $(12.6) million, or a non-GAAP loss per share of $(0.11) to $(0.13).

Statements that include the words "expect," "intend," "plan," "believe," "anticipate," "estimate," and similar statements of a future or forward-looking nature identify forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include, but are not limited to, the following: design win pipeline and new product revenue momentum may not continue as anticipated or at all; that new designs and design wins will result in sales of our products at the levels anticipated, or at all; that our lab trials will be successful and, if successful, will eventually result in field trials or market deployments; that the delays in new customer product ramps will continue longer than anticipated; that the rate of acceptance of our new and future products, including our G.fast products, by our customers and telecommunications service providers may be lower than anticipated; our ability to complete future products, including our G.fast products, when anticipated or at all; that the unfavorable trends in certain maturing markets, such as Japan and Korea, will continue longer than anticipated; that our design win pipeline will continue to expand as anticipated; macroeconomic or other conditions which may cause our customers to defer purchasing plans or cancel any purchasing plans altogether despite successful design wins or successful field trials; the continued demand by telecommunications service providers for our specific xDSL semiconductor products; our ability to continue to effectively manage our business and cash position; the failure of telecommunications service providers to implement deployment plans on schedule, or at all, despite increased performance results; our ability to generate demand and close transactions for the sale of our products; competition in the markets in which we operate; and the fact that the products we sell may not satisfy shifting customer demand or compete successfully with our competitors' products. For a more detailed discussion of how these and other risks and uncertainties could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in our forward-looking statements, see our reports filed with SEC (available at www.sec.gov), including our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on February 28, 2014.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution. EdgeX Foundry is unifying the community around a common IoT edge framework and an ecosystem of interoperable components.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
"Akvelon is a software development company and we also provide consultancy services to folks who are looking to scale or accelerate their engineering roadmaps," explained Jeremiah Mothersell, Marketing Manager at Akvelon, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
