HILLSBORO, OR - July 31, 2018 - Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), a global leader of open telecom solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.

Second Quarter Summary 

  • Consolidated revenue of $24.4 million, with Software-Systems representing over 50% of total revenue including growth of nearly 20% over prior year;
  • GAAP gross margin of 37.5% and non-GAAP gross margin of 45.3%;
  • GAAP loss of ($0.12) per share and non-GAAP earnings of $0.06 per diluted share; and
  • Entered into a definitive agreement on June 29 to be acquired by Reliance Industries Limited (“Reliance”) for $1.72 per share.

“Second quarter revenue and EPS exceeded the high-end of our expectations, including the achievement of non-GAAP profitability for the quarter,” said Brian Bronson, Radisys President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our second quarter results benefited from strength in our Software-Systems segment driven by early 5G licensing opportunities as well as upside residual demand from our legacy hardware business.

“Additionally, at the end of the second quarter we announced a definitive agreement for Radisys to be acquired by Reliance. While we will continue to work independently on driving our future growth and innovation, this transaction will help to accelerate our strategy and provide the scale required by our current and prospective customers to more fully embrace Radisys’ suite of products and services. Moreover, we expect the addition of Reliance’s visionary leadership and strong market position to further enhance our ability to develop and integrate large-scale, disruptive, open-centric end-to-end solutions.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company's earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses, gains and losses, such as the effects of (a) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation expense, (c) restructuring and other charges (reversals), net, (d) non-cash income tax expense, (e) restructuring inventory adjustment, (f) amortization of financing activities expenses, and (g) change in fair value of warrants. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company's performance, and the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. These non-GAAP measures are considered to be reflective of the Company's core operating results as they more closely reflect the essential revenue-generating activities of the Company and direct operating expenses (resulting in cash expenditures) needed to perform these revenue-generating activities. The Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its earnings calls' Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community, that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides are necessary to allow the investment community to construct their valuation models to better align its results and projections with its competitors and market sector, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to certain expenses, gains and losses.

The non-GAAP financial information is presented using a consistent methodology from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP information to GAAP information is included in the tables below.  The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this earnings release should be carefully evaluated.  The non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
