Polycom Announces Preliminary Financial Results for Q1 2012

PLEASANTON, Calif. - Apr 05, 2012 : Polycom, Inc. (NASDAQ: PLCM), the global leader in open standards-based unified communications (UC), today announced preliminary financial results for the first quarter of 2012.

The Company expects to report net revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, in the range of $364 million to $370 million, compared with net revenues of $344 million in the first quarter of 2011.
 
“We estimate that we grew quarterly revenues approximately 7 percent year-over-year, with each region recording increases. However, the growth rate was below our overall expectations, driven primarily by shortfalls in Asia Pacific and North America,” said Andrew Miller, President and CEO. “Polycom’s current operating model assumes a higher level of revenue growth, and we will analyze our assumptions between now and our regularly scheduled call on April 18th.”
 
The Company expects to report earnings per diluted share for the first quarter of 2012 in the range of $0.07 to $0.09 on a GAAP basis, compared with $0.19 per diluted share on a GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2011, and between $0.21 to $0.23 on a non-GAAP basis, compared with $0.24 on a non-GAAP basis per diluted share for the comparable period last year. The reconciliation of the preliminary range of GAAP net income per diluted share to the preliminary range of non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2012, and the reconciliation of GAAP net income per diluted share to non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2011, is provided at the end of this press release.
 
By region, the Company’s preliminary quarterly revenue results are:
  • Americas growth of 1 to 3 percent year-over-year
  • Europe, Middle East, and Africa growth of 15 to 17 percent year-over-year
  • Asia Pacific growth of 5 to 8 percent year-over-year
By product line, the Company’s preliminary quarterly revenue results are:
  • UC Group Systems up 4 to 6 percent year-over-year
  • UC Personal Devices up 7 to 9 percent year-over-year
  • Network Infrastructure up 11 to 14 percent year-over-year
These preliminary results are based on management’s initial analysis of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. Polycom will announce the final results for the first quarter on April 18, 2012.
