Concurrent Reports 2012 First Quarter Financial Results
Nov 01, 2011 (04:11 PM EDT)
ATLANTA, Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Concurrent (NASDAQ: CCUR), a global leader in video and media data solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2011.
Revenue for the fiscal 2012 first quarter was $12.9 million compared with $15.5 million in the comparable period in fiscal 2011.
Gross margin for the fiscal 2012 first quarter was 56% compared with 55% for the same period last year. Operating expenses amounted to $9.8 million, compared with $9.5 million in the prior-year period.
The company reported a net loss of $2.6 million, or $0.31 per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, compared with a net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.14 per share, in the same quarter of the prior fiscal year. At September 30, 2011, the company had cash and short-term investments of $29.7 million. Concurrent has no debt.
“These results are clearly disappointing, especially given the positive video market dynamics and our recent customer wins. The impact was principally due to significantly reduced spending levels from two of our core North American MSO customers, and a delay in product acceptance with a major new customer. While the revenue shortfall in the quarter is not necessarily unique to Concurrent, it illustrates the importance we place on diversifying our overall base of customers,” commented Dan Mondor, the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Looking forward, our line of sight has improved on specific projects with our top customers and we expect to recognize revenue from recent customer wins. As such, we are cautiously optimistic about the coming quarters while we believe customers will continue to closely manage their spending.”
