SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced financial results for its 2011 fiscal third quarter ended March 27, 2011. For the quarter, total net revenue was $75.7 million, as compared to $78.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2010. Previously updated guidance to investors was for net revenue of $75.5-76.5 million.
“We’ve made good progress as we continue to reposition the company to address high-growth verticals within the broader Enterprise, Service Provider, and Data Center markets,” said Oscar Rodriguez, President & CEO of Extreme Networks. “We have focused our product portfolio and investments to target those key market verticals to accelerate future growth and investor returns. Our strategy is on track and already showing results in the targeted vertical markets.”
In the third quarter the Company reported a non-GAAP net loss of $4.6 million or a loss of $0.05 per diluted share.

Net loss on a GAAP basis for the quarter was $6.8 million or $0.07 per diluted share, including the impact of a $5.4 million charge to discontinue a product. That compares to GAAP net income of $3.7 million or $0.04 per diluted share a year ago, and GAAP net income of $8.9 million or $0.10 per diluted share in the fiscal 2011 second quarter.
For the quarter, total net revenue in North America was $26.1 million, revenue in EMEA was $32.7 million, and revenue in APAC was $16.9 million. That compares to revenue in North America of $32.6 million, revenue in EMEA of $31.1 million, and revenue in APAC of $14.6 million a year-ago.
Total cash and investments increased $5.0 million from the fiscal 2011 second quarter to $146.7 million and 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), non-GAAP operating income/(loss) and non-GAAP earnings/(loss) per diluted share. 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.
