Extreme Networks Reports Fiscal Q3 Results
Fourth Consecutive Quarter of Positive Non-GAAP Earnings Per Share

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced financial results for its 2012 fiscal third quarter ended April 1, 2012. For the quarter, total net revenue was $73.4 million.  Non-GAAP net income was $3.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, and net income on a GAAP basis was $2.4 million or $0.03 per diluted share.  

In the third quarter of fiscal 2012, total net revenue was $73.4 million, compared to $75.7 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Total net revenue for the third quarter was $29.7 million in the Americas, $31.5 million in EMEA, and $12.1 million in APAC. That compares to revenue in the Americas of $29.4 million, in EMEA of $29.4 million, and in APAC of $16.9 million for the same period last year. For the quarter, total revenue decreased 11%, and product revenue was down 15% sequentially from the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

"The Americas continues to be our highest performing region and we are aggressively taking steps to improve sales execution in APAC and EMEA in order to improve year over year performance," said Oscar Rodriguez, President and CEO of Extreme Networks. "Our new and enhanced product portfolio continues to garner increased customer and reseller interest, and we are taking the actions we believe are necessary to convert that interest into revenue growth for the Company."

Improvements in operational efficiency and cost reductions completed as part of the Company's strategic transformation have resulted in positive non-GAAP earnings per share for the fourth consecutive quarter. 

In the third quarter, non-GAAP operating income was $4.1 million or 6% of net revenue, representing a 195% improvement when compared to non-GAAP operating loss of $4.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011, which included a charge of $5.4 million related to inventory write-off. Non-GAAP operating income in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 was $5.8 million or 7% of net revenue, representing a 29% decrease sequentially.

In the third quarter, the Company reported non-GAAP net income of $3.8 million or $0.04 per diluted share. That compares to non-GAAP net loss of $4.6 million or $0.05 per diluted share in the third quarter of last year, and to non-GAAP net income of $5.8 million or $0.06 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Non-GAAP financial results exclude the impact of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, and litigation settlements. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is included in the accompanying financial tables.

Operating income on a GAAP basis was $2.7 million for the quarter, compared to operating loss of $6.6 million for the third quarter of last year. Operating income was $4.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Net income on a GAAP basis for the quarter was $2.4 million or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net loss of $6.8 million or $0.07 per diluted share in the third quarter of last year. In the second quarter of fiscal 2012, GAAP net income was $4.1 million or $0.04 per diluted share.

Total cash and investments totaled $147.2 million as of April 1, 2012. The Company has no long-term debt.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Extreme Networks provides all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we are also providing with this press release non-GAAP net income/(loss) and non-GAAP operating income/(loss). In preparing our non-GAAP information, we have excluded, where applicable, the impact of restructuring charges, share-based compensation and litigation settlements. We believe that excluding these items provides both management and investors with additional insight into our current operations, the trends affecting the Company and the Company's marketplace performance. In particular, management finds it useful to exclude these items in order to more readily correlate the Company's operating activities with the Company's ability to generate cash from operations. Accordingly, management uses these non-GAAP measures, along with the comparable GAAP information, in evaluating our historical performance and in planning our future business activities. Please note that our non-GAAP measures may be different than those used by other companies. The additional non-GAAP financial information we present should be considered in conjunction with, and not as a substitute for, our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. We have provided a non-GAAP reconciliation of the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the periods presented in this release, which are adjusted to exclude restructuring charges, share-based compensation expense and litigation settlements for these periods. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures for comparable financial information and understanding of the Company's ongoing performance as a business. Extreme Networks uses both GAAP and non-GAAP measures to evaluate and manage its operations.
