Lod, Israel – October 29, 2019 - AudioCodes (NASDAQ: AUDC) Press Release
AudioCodes, a leading vendor of advanced voice networking and media processing solutions for the digital workplace, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.
Revenues for the third quarter of 2019 were $51.4 million compared to $49.5 million for the second quarter of 2019 and $44.5 million for the third quarter of 2018.
Net income was $4.4 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2019 compared to $4.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018.
On a Non-GAAP basis, net income was $7.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2019 compared to $5.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2018.
Non-GAAP net income excludes: (i) share-based compensation expenses; (ii) amortization expenses related to intangible assets; (iii) expenses or income related to revaluation of an earn-out liability in connection with the acquisition of Active Communications Europe; (iv) financial income or expenses related to exchange rate differences in connection with revaluation of assets and liabilities in non-dollar denominated currencies and (v) non-cash deferred tax expenses. A reconciliation of net income on a GAAP basis to a non-GAAP basis is provided in the tables that accompany the condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this press release.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $4.0 million for the third quarter of 2019. Cash and cash equivalents, long- and short-term bank deposits and short-term marketable securities were $69.5 million as of September 30, 2019 compared to $65.4 million as of December 31, 2018. The increase in cash and cash equivalents, long- and short-term bank deposits and short-term marketable securities was the result of cash from operating activities offset, in part, by the use of cash for the continued repurchasing of the Company’s ordinary shares pursuant to its share repurchase program and the payment of cash dividends during 2019.
"We are pleased to report record financial results for the third quarter of 2019,” said Shabtai Adlersberg, President and Chief Executive Officer of AudioCodes. “We continue to enjoy growth trends in the UC and UCaaS markets and an increased pace of migration of service providers to All-IP. Our strong execution across our business lines, aided by these growth trends, enabled us to expand our business. We improved our financial performance on both revenues and profits. Our improved operational efficiency and the growth in our operating margin percentage to 14.5% underscored our financial success.”
“With greater industry focus on the meeting space, we have increased our investments in this area since the beginning of 2019. Earlier in October we announced our entry into the market in collaboration with Dolby. Our Room Experience (RX) solution suite is designed to address a wide range of customer room environments from huddle rooms to large rooms and the boardroom. Our solutions include a comprehensive portfolio of devices built around Dolby hardware and audio technology in order to deliver an exceptional audio experience in rooms of all sizes. The initiative also includes Meeting Insights, an enterprise software solution designed to easily capture, organize, share and distribute the content of enterprise meetings using AudioCodes’ state-of-the-art Voice.ai technology.”
“A continued theme in our investments is the emerging voice.ai area where we are making progress with encouraging results. We continue to prudently invest in our future offerings and remain focused on maximizing the return on these investments for our shareholders,” concluded Mr. Adlersberg.
On August 6, 2019, the Company declared a cash dividend of $0.12 per share. The dividend, in the aggregate amount of $3.5 million, was paid on September 3, 2019 to all of the Company’s shareholders of record on August 19, 2019.
