Avid Announces Results for Third Quarter 2011

BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Avid® (NASDAQ: AVID) today reported revenues of $165.0 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2011, compared to $165.1 million for the same period in 2010. The GAAP net loss for the third quarter was $8.0 million, or $0.21 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $10.0 million, or $0.26 per share, in the third quarter of 2010. The revenue reported for the second quarter of 2011 was $161.3 million and the GAAP net loss was $11.9 million.

The GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2011 and 2010 included amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, gain on asset sales, legal settlements and acquisition-related costs, restructuring charges, and related tax adjustments collectively totaling $8.4 million and $11.6 million, respectively. Excluding these items, the non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $385 thousand, or $0.01 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $1.6 million, or $0.04 per share, for the third quarter of 2010.

"The third quarter results showed sequential improvement in revenue and profit," said Gary Greenfield, chairman and CEO of Avid. "We continue our sharp focus on providing our customers with the products and solutions that help them succeed. In addition, we have taken actions which should accelerate improvement in our financial performance."

Revenues for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011 were $492.6 million, compared to revenues of $483.2 million for the same period in 2010. The GAAP net loss for the first nine months of 2011 was $25.0 million, or $0.65 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $36.4 million, or $0.96 per share, for the same period in 2010. The GAAP net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2011 included $20.6 million of amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, loss on asset sales, legal settlements and acquisition-related costs and related tax adjustments. Excluding these items, the non-GAAP net loss was $4.4 million, or $0.11 per share, for the first nine months of 2011. The GAAP net loss for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2010 included $31.4 million of amortization of intangible assets, gain on asset sales, stock-based compensation, restructuring charges, legal settlements and acquisition-related costs and related tax adjustments. Excluding these items, the non-GAAP net loss was $5.0 million, or $0.13 per share, for the first nine months of 2010.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the tables attached to this release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains "non-GAAP financial measures" under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This non-GAAP information supplements, and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with, disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures that we provide is in the tables attached to this press release.

Management considers both GAAP and non-GAAP financial results in managing our business. Non-GAAP financial measures are used internally, for example, in establishing annual operating budgets, in assessing operating performance and for measuring performance under incentive compensation plans. Non-GAAP financial measures are also used in operating and financial decision-making because we believe these measures reflect our ongoing business and allow meaningful period-to-period comparisons. We believe it is useful for investors and others to also review both GAAP and non-GAAP measures in order to understand and evaluate our current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management and to compare in a consistent manner the company's current financial results with past financial performance. The primary limitations associated with our use of non-GAAP financial measures are that they may not include all items of income and expense that affect our operations and that the non-GAAP financial measures we use may not be directly comparable to those reported by other companies. For example, the terms used in this press release, such as non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net income, do not have standardized meanings. Other companies may use the same or similarly named measures, but exclude different items, which may not provide investors with a comparable view of our performance in relation to other companies. We seek to compensate for this limitation by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release.
