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.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
Keeping pace with advancements in software delivery processes and tooling is taxing even for the most proficient organizations. Point tools, platforms, open source and the increasing adoption of private and public cloud services requires strong engineering rigor - all in the face of developer demands to use the tools of choice. As Agile has settled in as a mainstream practice, now DevOps has emerged as the next wave to improve software delivery speed and output. To make DevOps work, organization...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, represent...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
