Symmetricom Reports Preliminary Revenue and EPS Information for the Second Quarter of Fiscal 2011

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Symmetricom®, Inc. (NASDAQ:SYMM) today provided preliminary revenue and preliminary earnings per share information for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 ended December 26, 2010.

Second quarter revenue is expected to range from approximately $40.0 to $42.5 million, a revision from previous revenue guidance of $52 to $57 million. The decreased revenue is due to product supply and fulfillment delays associated with the company’s transition to an outsourced manufacturing and logistics model. Symmetricom ceased manufacturing all products in Puerto Rico in December 2010 and expects to complete the transition in the third quarter, as previously disclosed.

The company’s order volume was at expected levels for the quarter and ending backlog is expected to be $63 to $65 million, higher than originally anticipated. The company expects to ship delayed backlog and return to normal shipment patterns in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.

As a result of this updated revenue information, the company expects a GAAP loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 in the range of $(0.08) to $(0.11) per share and non-GAAP earnings in the range of $0.00 to $0.03 per share. A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP guidance is provided at the end of this press release.

The company expects to report second quarter financial results during the week of January 31, 2011. The revenue and earnings per share information stated above is preliminary and subject to adjustment, and this release does not present all information necessary for an understanding of the company’s financial position and results of operations as of and for its second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Non-GAAP Information

Certain non-GAAP financial information is included in this press release. In the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results, Symmetricom excludes certain items related to non-cash equity-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, restructuring charges, and costs related to its Puerto Rico manufacturing transition that the company does not consider indicative of its ongoing performance. The income tax effect after these non-GAAP adjustments was determined based upon Symmetricom’s estimate of its annual non-GAAP effective tax rate excluding these non-GAAP adjustments. Symmetricom believes that excluding such items provides investors, analysts and management with a representation of the company’s core operating performance and with information useful in assessing, in conjunction with GAAP results, underlying trends in operating performance. Management uses such non-GAAP information to evaluate financial results and to establish operational goals. Non-GAAP information should not be considered superior to or as a substitute for data prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the GAAP results is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.
