The information in Item 2.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K, shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section or Sections 11 and 12(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Item 2.05. Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities.

On January 31, 2018, the Company approved and on February 2, 2018 began executing a plan to re-align the Company’s resources to take advantage of new growth opportunities as a result of the Company’s recent purchase of the Avaya Campus Fabric Business and the Brocade Data Center Business (the “Plan”). The Plan is expected to reduce the overall costs of the Company and to accelerate the achievement of the Company’s operating margin target objectives. The Company expects to incur charges of approximately $4.0 million in connection with the Plan. Upon completion of the Plan, the potential savings expected to be achieved as a result of reduced employee related expenses and lower operating costs will yield annualized savings in the range of $7.0 - $9.0 million. The costs associated with this Plan primarily include employee severance and benefits expenses.  The amount and timing of the actual charges may vary due to required consultation activities with certain employees as well as compliance with statutory severance requirements in local jurisdictions.

Extreme Networks Reports Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

 

SAN JOSE, Calif., February 6, 2018 -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (“Extreme”) (Nasdaq: EXTR) today released financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended December 31, 2017.

 

Second Quarter Results:  

 

 

Second quarter revenue was $231.1 million, an increase of 48% year-over-year.

 

 

GAAP gross margin for the second fiscal quarter was 55.8%, an increase of 490 basis points year-over-year, and non-GAAP gross margin was 59.4% year-over-year, an increase of 220 basis points year-over-year.  

 

 

GAAP operating margin for the second fiscal quarter was (13.5)% and non-GAAP operating margin was 8.8%, compared to (1.9)% and 11.7 %, respectively, year-over-year.

 

 

GAAP net loss for the second fiscal quarter was $31.9 million, or $0.28 per basic share. Non-GAAP net income was $16.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, a decrease of $0.7 million and $0.02, respectively, year-over-year.

 

“We delivered solid performance in the second fiscal quarter highlighted by revenue growth, gross margin expansion and solid execution of our integration initiatives associated with our newly acquired assets,” stated Ed Meyercord, President and CEO of Extreme Networks.

 

“I am especially pleased with our non-GAAP gross margin performance in the quarter, which is close to exceeding our near-term goal of 60%,” continued Meyercord.  “We turned away a significant volume of low margin business this quarter in favor of higher quality, solutions-driven sales that drove our non-GAAP gross margin improvement for the twelfth consecutive quarter. We expect to see continued improvement in gross margins in the second half of our fiscal year in addition to significant sequential quarterly growth.”

 

“Our recent acquisitions have meaningfully strengthened our brand, our competitive position and our technology differentiation in the market. We are seeing significant growth in our pipeline which includes many cross-selling opportunities. Our March quarter will be the first quarter of fully consolidated operations and we expect to deliver year-over-year organic growth in our core Extreme business and meeting or exceeding our annual target of $430 million of newly acquired revenue which is evident in our guidance.” Meyercord added.  

 


Finally, Meyercord added, "We successfully completed the migration of the data and IT systems of the acquired assets from Brocade into Extreme as planned on January 15th and we are on track to migrate the data and systems of the Avaya assets in early April. Our teams have done an outstanding job driving our business while managing these large and complex integration initiatives."

 

Recent Key Events:

 

St John's Hotel is a luxury hotel with 1,091 guest rooms located in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the host city for the 2018 Winter Olympics. The newly-opened hotel will accommodate International Olympic Committee members during the upcoming Games. Extreme solved their need for secure and reliable, easy-to-manage wired and wireless unified access for guest rooms and indoor/outdoor venues highlighted by our feature-rich Extreme Management Center software that provides complete visibility, control and analytics of the entire networking infrastructure environment.

 

SK Telecom is the largest mobile service provider in South Korea with 50+ million subscribers. They originally preferred our largest competitor, but ultimately decided on Extreme's switches for their core and top-of-rack at their Boramae Data Center. Their confidence that Extreme delivers the best products, support, and long-term ROI led to their decision.

 

Ultravision is a service provider in Mexico that offers TV, TV on Demand, Internet, and Voice over LTE. Ultravision chose Extreme for the automation, traffic flow visibility, and competitive pricing. The IP/MPLS transport and core network consists of integrated technologies with the Summit Series from Extreme and newly acquired datacenter assets including the SLX, MLX and VDX switching and routing families along with Flow Optimizer for threat mitigation, Workflow Composer for high automation capabilities, and Extreme Management Center for their next phase network management.

 

Extreme Networks was named the Official Wi-Fi Analytics Provider of Super Bowl LII by the NFL for the 5th consecutive year. To maximize network visibility and the fan experience, Extreme deployed its cloud-based ExtremeAnalytics™   solution during this year's Super Bowl at Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium. Our analytics solution delivers actionable, real-time insight into how fans use apps, video, social media and images throughout the game. Extreme has, this past season, delivered high-density Wi-Fi solutions to 10 NFL teams and insightful Wi-Fi analytics to an additional 12 NFL teams.

With the adoption of new revenue recognition accounting guidance (“ASC 606”) in FY’18, we have adjusted prior periods.  The impact of these adjustments to the balance sheet and income statement, are noted with “as adjusted”.

 

Cash and investments ended the quarter at $128.2 million, a decrease of $25.9 million from Q1 and an increase of $24.4 million from Q2 last year.

 

Accounts receivable balance ending Q2 was $154.9 million, with days sales outstanding (“DSO”) of 62.

 

Q2 ending inventory was $83.4 million, an increase of $25.3 million from the prior quarter and an increase of $34.0 million from Q2 last year.

 

Q2 ending debt was $183.1 million, an increase of $15.5 million from Q1, driven primarily by borrowings to fund Extreme's acquisition of Brocade's Data Center business and an increase of $86.0 million from Q2 last year, driven primarily by borrowings to fund Extreme's acquisitions of Avaya’s Campus Fabric business and Brocade's Data Center business.

 

Business Outlook:

 

Extreme’s Business Outlook is based on current expectations.  The following statements are forward-looking, and actual results could differ materially based on market conditions and the factors set forth under “Forward-Looking Statements” below.

 

For its third quarter of fiscal 2018, ending March 31, 2018, the Company is targeting revenue in a range of $262.0 million to $272.0 million.  GAAP gross margin is targeted between 56.1% and 58.4% and non-GAAP gross margin is targeted between 58.9% and 61.1%. Operating expenses are targeted to be between $153.5 million and $156.5 million on a GAAP basis and $130.0 million to $133.0 million on a non-GAAP basis. GAAP earnings are targeted to be between a net loss of $1.6 million to $10.4 million or a loss of $(0.01) to $(0.09) per basic share.  Non-GAAP earnings are targeted in a range of net income of $20.4


million to $29.2 million, or $0.17 to $0.24 per diluted share. The GAAP net loss targets are based on 114.8 million average outstanding shares and non-GAAP net income targets are based on an estimated 120.3 million average outstanding shares.

These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this release. Actual results or events could differ materially from those anticipated in those forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including: our ability to realize the anticipated benefits of the acquisition of the WLAN business from Zebra Technologies Corporation, the networking business from Avaya and the data center switching, routing and analytics business assets from Brocade; our ability to successfully integrate the acquired technologies and operations from the Zebra, Avaya and Brocade assets into our business and operations;  failure to achieve targeted revenues and forecasted demand from end customers; a highly competitive business environment for network switching equipment; our effectiveness in controlling expenses; the possibility that we might experience delays in the development or introduction of new technology and products; customer response to our new technology and products; risks related to pending or future litigation; and a dependency on third parties for certain components and for the manufacturing of our products.

Extreme Networks, Inc.

Non-GAAP Measures of Financial Performance

 

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, ("GAAP"), Extreme Networks uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance.  These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses and free cash flow.

 

Reconciliation to the nearest GAAP measure of all historical non-GAAP measures included in this press release can be found in the tables included with this press release.  In this press release, Extreme Networks also presents its target for non-GAAP expenses, which is expenses less share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, acquired inventory adjustments, restructuring charges, executive transition costs, litigation, amortization of acquired intangibles, restructuring expenses, executive transition expenses, litigation expenses, other income and income tax.

 

Non-GAAP measures presented in this press release are not in accordance with or alternative measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.  In addition, these non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.  Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Extreme Networks' results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  These non-GAAP measures should only be used to evaluate Extreme Networks' results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

 

Extreme believes these non-GAAP measures when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures to enhance investors' and management's overall understanding of the Company's current financial performance and the Company's prospects for the future, including cash flows available to pursue opportunities to enhance shareholder value.  In addition, because Extreme Networks has historically reported certain non-GAAP results to investors, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP measures provides consistency in the Company's financial reporting.

 

For its internal planning process, and as discussed further below, Extreme's management uses financial statements that do not include share-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, purchase accounting adjustments, acquired inventory adjustment, amortization of intangibles, restructuring charges, executive transition costs, litigation, other income and income tax.  Extreme’s management also uses non-GAAP measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in reviewing the Company's financial results.

 

As described above, Extreme excludes the following items from one or more of its non-GAAP measures when applicable.

 

Share-based compensation. This expense consists of expenses for stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases through its ESPP.  Extreme Networks excludes share-based compensation expenses from its non-GAAP measures primarily because they are non-cash expenses that the Company does not believe are reflective of ongoing cash requirement related to operating results. Extreme Networks expects to incur share-based compensation expenses in future periods.

 

Acquisition and integration costs. Acquisition and integration costs consist of legal and professional fees related to the acquisition of a) Zebra Technologies Corporation’s wireless LAN business b) Avaya,


Inc.’s, Campus Fabric business and c) Brocade’s Data Center assets; Extreme Networks excludes these expenses since they result from an event that is outside the ordinary course of continuing operations.

 

Purchase accounting adjustments.  Purchase accounting adjustments relating to deferred revenue consists of adjustments to the carrying value of deferred revenue.  We have recorded adjustments to the assumed deferred revenue to reflect only a fulfillment margin and thereby excluding the profit margin and revenue which would have been incurred had Extreme Networks entered into the service contract post-acquisition.

 

Acquired inventory adjustments.   Purchase accounting adjustments relating to the mark up of acquired inventory to fair value less disposal costs.

 

Amortization of acquired intangibles.  Amortization of acquired intangibles includes the monthly amortization expense of acquired intangible assets such as developed technology, customer relationships, trademarks and order backlog.  The amortization of the developed technology intangible is recorded in product cost of goods sold, while the amortization for the other intangibles are recorded in operating expenses.  Extreme Networks excludes these non-cash expenses since they result from an intangible asset and for which the period expense does not impact the operations of the business and are non-cash in nature.

 

Restructuring expenses. Restructuring expenses primarily consist of accrued lease costs pertaining to the estimated future obligations for non-cancelable lease payments and accelerated depreciation of leasehold improvements related to excess facilities. Extreme Networks excludes restructuring expenses since they result from events that often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations.

 

Executive transition expenses.  Executive transition expenses consists of severance and termination benefits and legal transition cash transactions.  The expenses are incurred through execution of pre-established employment contracts with senior executives. 

 

Litigation expenses. Litigation expenses consist of legal and professional fees and expenses related to our on-going ligation matters.

 

Other income. Other income consists of the gain on the sale of our equity investment in a private company.

 

Income tax.   Income tax adjustments relate to the tax impact of reducing the US tax rate applied to deferred tax items pursuant to the recently enacted US tax legislation as well as the tax benefit resulting from the impairment of a lease acquired from Avaya in Canada.

 

In addition to the non-GAAP measures discussed above, Extreme uses free cash flow as a measure of operating performance.  Free cash flow represents operating cash flows less net purchase of property and equipment on a GAAP basis.  Extreme considers free cash flows to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after the purchases of property and equipment, which can then be used to, among other things, invest in Extreme’s business, make strategic acquisitions, and strengthen the balance sheet.  A limitation of the utility of free cash flows as a measure of financial performance is that it does not represent the total increase or decrease in the Company's cash balance for the period.
