Aug 04, 2011 (05:08 PM EDT)


"Second Quarter is Profitable on a Non-GAAP Basis"

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PT (NASDAQ: PTIX), a leading global provider of advanced network communications solutions, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter 2011.

Revenue in the second quarter 2011 amounted to $8.5 million, compared to $7.4 million in the second quarter 2010.  Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 amounted to $18.1 million, compared to $14.8 million during the corresponding period in 2010.

On the basis of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the net loss in the second quarter 2011 amounted to ($.5 million), or ($.04) per basic share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding, including restructuring charges of $.01 per share and stock compensation expense of $.01 per share.  The GAAP net loss in the second quarter 2010 amounted to ($2.0 million), or ($.18) per basic share, including restructuring charges of $.01 per share and stock compensation expense of $.01 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.

The GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2011 amounted to ($1.6 million), or ($.14) per basic share, including a restructuring charge of $.02 per share and stock-based compensation of $.02 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.  The GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2010 amounted to ($3.9 million), or ($.35) per basic share, including a restructuring charge of $.01 per share; stock-based compensation of $.03 per share; and a discrete tax provision of $.01 per share, based on 11.1 million shares outstanding.  

On a non-GAAP basis, the Company had net income in the second quarter 2011 amounting to $.03 million, or $.00 per basic share, compared to a net loss of ($1.6 million), or ($.15) per basic share in the second quarter 2010.  The non-GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2011 amounted to ($.3 million), or ($.02) per basic share, compared to a net loss of ($3.1 million), or ($.28) per basic share in the six months ended June 30, 2010.  Please refer to the reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures contained in this release.

On June 30, 2011, the Company's working capital position was $18.7 million including cash and investments amounting to $13.7 million, and the Company had no long-term debt.

"While the uneven economy continues to result in variability in our quarterly revenue, our first half 2011 revenues grew 22% over our prior year," said John Slusser, president and chief executive officer.  "We are gratified to see that our expense reduction efforts are paying off as our quarterly net loss was greatly reduced.  Our new product offerings are gaining market traction and I am especially pleased to see the early interest in our new Monterey platform.  The signaling alliance we established in the first quarter with GENBAND also continues to further progress.  We believe that our first half year-over-year revenue trend will continue in the second half and we are hopeful that the Company's operations will soon return to profitability."  

Recent Highlights:

  • In early May 2011, PT and Tekelec agreed to voluntarily dismiss all claims and defenses against each other, effectively ending the litigation between the two companies.  

  • In late May 2011, PT was pleased to publicly reveal that its previously announced major international wireless carrier order amounting to nearly $3 million was with Globacom, one of Africa's fastest growing mobile telecommunications companies.  Under this order, PT's SEGway™ Signaling solutions will be deployed in Nigeria and Ghana and will include both Mobile Number Portability (MNP) and Short Message Service Defense (SMS-D) functions.  Revenues from this order are anticipated to be recognized during the second half of 2011 as the solutions are installed.

  • In June 2011, PT announced a revolutionary new open-standards solution set, code named Monterey.  First of its kind in the industry, Monterey is an enhanced application-ready system that combines compatibility with the latest MicroTCA.4 standard with superset extensions including increased backplane performance and higher available power budget.  The Monterey architecture leverages the latest trends in high-density computing and high speed 10/40GbE fabrics in a compelling cost-performance, space-efficient model that is ideally suited as the foundation for a wide range of next-generation network communications and services applications.

Business Overview:

The Company globally targets two primary vertical markets for its network communications products, namely telecommunications, and military, aerospace and government systems.  The telecommunications market, historically our largest vertical market, is fundamentally driven by investments in network infrastructure by carriers and service providers.  Telecommunications market revenues derived from our IPnexus® Application-Ready Systems products, which are sold to OEMs, depend primarily on broad, multi-year deployments of next-generation telecommunications infrastructure.  Telecommunications market revenues generated from service providers purchasing our SEGway and Xpress™ product lines result from investments necessary to support existing and evolving service demands such as text messaging and the transition to Internet-based communications networks.  Sales into the military, aerospace and government systems market are typically to prime contractors and system integrators that reflect investment levels by various government agencies and military branches in specific programs and projects requiring enhanced communications capabilities.  The timing of military, aerospace and government systems shipments for the most part is highly unpredictable.

More in-depth discussions of the Company's strategy and financial performance can be found in the Company's periodic reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Forward-Looking Statements

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides a "safe harbor" for certain forward-looking statements.  This press release contains forward-looking statements which reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and financial performance, within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is subject to the safe harbor provisions of those Sections.  The Company's future operating results are subject to various risks and uncertainties and could differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements and may be affected by various trends and factors which are beyond the Company's control.  These risks and uncertainties include, among other factors, business and economic conditions, rapid technological changes accompanied by frequent new product introductions, competitive pressures, dependence on key customers, inability to gauge order flows from customers, fluctuations in quarterly and annual results, the reliance on a limited number of third party suppliers, limitations of PT's manufacturing capacity and arrangements, the protection of PT's proprietary technology, errors or defects in our products, the effects of pending or threatened litigation, the dependence on key personnel, changes in critical accounting estimates, potential impairments related to investments, foreign regulations, and potential material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting.  In addition, during weak or uncertain economic periods, customers' visibility deteriorates causing delays in the placement of their orders.  These factors often result in a substantial portion of PT's revenue being derived from orders placed within a quarter and shipped in the final month of the same quarter.  Forward-looking statements should be read in conjunction with the most recent audited Consolidated Financial Statements, the Notes thereto, Risk Factors, and Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations of the Company, as contained in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K, and other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As a supplement to the GAAP-based consolidated financial statements contained in this press release, the Company is providing a presentation of non-GAAP financial measures which can be useful to investors to gain an overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance.  Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors by excluding certain expenses the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.  The non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain expenses such as the effects of (a) amortization of purchased intangible assets, (b) stock-based compensation, (c) restructuring costs, and (d) other legal costs.  

Management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions and forecasting and planning for future periods.  We also consider the use of the non-GAAP financial measures to be helpful in assessing various aspects of our business operations.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered a substitute for the corresponding GAAP financial information and should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial information.  

A reconciliation of non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is included herein.  

A conference call will be held on Friday, August 5, at 10:00 a.m., New York time, to discuss the results. All institutional investors can participate in the conference by dialing (866) 250-5144 or (416) 849-6163. The call will be available simultaneously for all other investors at (866) 494-3387 or (416) 915-1198. A digital recording of this conference call may be accessed immediately after its completion from August 5 through August 9, 2011. To access the recording, participants should dial (866) 245-6755 or (416) 915-1035 using passcode 847904.

(a)  Amortization of purchased intangible assets - a non-cash expense arising from the acquisition of intangible assets that the Company is required to amortize over their expected useful life. The value of purchased intangible assets increased significantly as a result of the acquisition of the USP and SP2000 signaling technologies acquired from GENBAND.


(b)  Stock-based compensation costs - a non-cash expense incurred in accordance with share-based compensation accounting guidance.


(c) Restructuring costs - costs incurred as a result of restructuring activities taken to bring operating expenses more in line with expected revenues.  


(d) Other legal costs - expenses not indicative of core operating activities.


(e) Basic and diluted net income per common share are identical for the three months ended June 30, 2011
