“We achieved robust growth in Unified Communications (“UC”) net revenues as global adoption of the technology continues,” said Ken Kannappan, President & CEO. “Solid revenue in Office and Contact Center (“OCC”) combined with market share gains in mono Bluetooth in the U.S. furthered our revenue growth in the quarter.”

“We continued to strategically invest in our UC product portfolio to strengthen our position as a leader in UC, while maintaining profitability within our long-term target range,” said Pam Strayer, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “We are focused on driving efficiency throughout the company to maximize our long-term investment in UC.”

OCC net revenues increased 5% to $139.4 million compared with $133.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 driven by the strength of our UC revenues. Net revenues from UC products, a subset of OCC, grew by 43% to $36.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 compared with $25.2 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.

Mobile net revenues were $44.1 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, an increase of $8.1 million, or 23%, from $36.0 million in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012 primarily as a result of strong product launches and good product placement in our retail channels.

Dividend Announcement

We also announced that our Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share. The dividend will be payable on March 11, 2013 to stockholders of record at the close of business on February 20, 2013.

Business Outlook

The following statements are based on our current expectations and many of these statements are forward-looking. Actual results are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties and may differ materially from our expectations.

We have a “book and ship” business model whereby we ship most orders to customers within 48 hours of receipt of those orders, and, therefore, the level of backlog does not provide reliable visibility into potential future revenues. In addition, our incoming orders have historically been low during the last two weeks of December and the first half of January, and have then increased significantly into February and March.

Our business is inherently difficult to forecast, particularly with continuing uncertainty in global economic conditions, and there can be no assurance that expectations of incoming orders over the balance of the current quarter will materialize.

Subject to the foregoing, we currently expect the following range of financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013:

  • Net revenues of $190 million to $195 million;
  • GAAP operating income of $33 million to $35 million;
  • Non-GAAP operating income of $39 million to $41 million, excluding the impact of $6 million from stock-based compensation, accelerated depreciation, and restructuring costs from GAAP operating income;
  • Assuming approximately 42.7 million diluted average weighted shares outstanding:
    • GAAP diluted EPS of $0.63 to $0.67;
    • Non-GAAP diluted EPS of $0.68 to $0.72; and
    • Cost of stock-based compensation, accelerated depreciation and restructuring costs to be approximately $0.09 per diluted share, with an expected partial offset of approximately $0.04 related to the retroactive reinstatement of the research and development (“R&D”) tax credit in the U.S.

Please see our new Investor Relations Presentation available on our corporate website at www.plantronics.com/ir.

Conference Call Scheduled to Discuss Financial Results

We have scheduled a conference call to discuss third quarter fiscal year 2013 results. The conference call will take place today, January 29, 2013, at 2:00 PM (Pacific Time). All interested investors and potential investors in our stock are invited to participate. To listen to the call, please dial in five to ten minutes prior to the scheduled starting time and refer to the “Plantronics Conference Call.” Participants from North America should call (888) 301-8736 and other participants should call (706) 634-7260.

A replay of the call with the conference ID # 70844491 will be available until February 28, 2013 at (855) 859-2056 or (800) 585-8367 for callers from North America and at (404) 537-3406 for all other callers. The conference call will also be simultaneously webcast in the Investor Relations section of our corporate website at www.plantronics.com/ir, and the webcast of the conference call will remain available on our website for 30 days.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

For the periods presented, we have excluded certain non-cash expenses and charges, net of tax, including stock-based compensation related to stock options, restricted stock and employee stock purchases, purchase accounting amortization, accelerated depreciation, restructuring and other related charges, and an expected retroactive reinstatement of the R&D tax credit, along with the tax benefits from the expiration of certain statutes of limitations from non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin and non-GAAP diluted EPS. We exclude these expenses from our non-GAAP measures primarily because management does not consider them as part of our target operating model. We believe that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance and liquidity and helps investors compare actual results to our long-term target operating model goals. We believe that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods; however, non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, gross margin, operating income, operating margin, the effective tax rate, net income, or EPS prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Safe Harbor

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements relating to (i) our expenses and our long-term operating margin target, (ii) our estimates of GAAP and non-GAAP financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, including net revenues, operating income and diluted EPS; (iii) our estimates of stock-based compensation, accelerated depreciation, restructuring and other related charges, and tax benefits from the expiration of certain statutes of limitation, and the retroactive reinstatement of the R&D tax credit for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, as well as the impact of these non-cash expenses on Non-GAAP operating income and diluted EPS; and (iv) our estimate of weighted average shares outstanding for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, in addition to other matters discussed in this press release that are not purely historical data. We do not assume any obligation to update or revise any such forward-looking statements, whether as the result of new developments or otherwise.

Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by such statements. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated are:

  • Micro and macro economic conditions in our domestic and international markets;
  • our ability to realize our UC plans and to achieve the financial results projected to arise from UC adoption could be adversely affected by a variety of factors including the following: (i) as UC becomes more widely adopted, the risk that competitors will offer solutions that will effectively commoditize our headsets which, in turn, will reduce the sales prices for our headsets; (ii) our plans are dependent upon adoption of our UC solution by major platform providers such as Microsoft Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., Avaya, Inc., Alcatel-Lucent, and IBM, and we have a limited ability to influence such providers with respect to the functionality of their platforms, their rate of deployment, and their willingness to integrate their platforms with our solutions, and our support expenditures may substantially increase over time due to the complex nature of the platforms developed by the major UC providers as these platforms continue to evolve and become more commonly adopted; (iii) the development of UC solutions is technically complex and this may delay or limit our ability to introduce solutions to the market on a timely basis and that are cost effective, feature rich, stable and attractive to our customers on a timely basis; (iv) our development of UC solutions is dependent on our ability to implement and execute new and different processes in connection with the design, development and manufacturing of complex electronic systems comprised of hardware, firmware and software that must work in a wide variety of environments and multiple variations, which may in some instances increase the risk of development delays or errors and require the hiring of new personnel and/or third party contractors which increases our costs; (v) because UC offerings involve complex integration of hardware and software with UC infrastructure, our sales model and expertise will need to continue to evolve; (vi) as UC becomes more widely adopted we anticipate that competition for market share will increase, and some competitors may have superior technical and economic resources; (vii) UC solutions may not be adopted with the breadth and speed in the marketplace that we currently anticipate; and, (viii) UC may evolve rapidly and unpredictably and our inability to timely and cost-effectively adapt to those changes and future requirements may impact our profitability in this market and our overall margins;
  • failure to match production to demand given long lead times and the difficulty of forecasting unit volumes and acquiring the component parts and materials to meet demand without having excess inventory or incurring cancellation charges;
  • volatility in prices from our suppliers, including our manufacturers located in China, have in the past and could in the future negatively affect our profitability and/or market share;
  • fluctuations in foreign exchange rates;
  • with respect to our stock repurchase program, prevailing stock market conditions generally, and the price of our stock specifically;
  • the bankruptcy or financial weakness of distributors or key customers, or the bankruptcy of or reduction in capacity of our key suppliers;
  • additional risk factors including: interruption in the supply of sole-sourced critical components, continuity of component supply at costs consistent with our plans, the inherent risks of our substantial foreign operations, and problems that might affect our manufacturing facilities in Mexico; and
  • seasonality in one or more of our business segments.

For more information concerning these and other possible risks, please refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 25, 2012 and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as well as recent press releases.

WebRTC sits at the intersection between VoIP and the Web. As such, it poses some interesting challenges for those developing services on top of it, but also for those who need to test and monitor these services. In his session at WebRTC Summit, Tsahi Levent-Levi, co-founder of testRTC, reviewed the various challenges posed by WebRTC when it comes to testing and monitoring and on ways to overcome them.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

In his keynote at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Director of IoT Engineering at Citrix and co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, focused on building an IoT platform and company. He provided a behind-the-scenes look at Octoblu’s platform, business, and pivots along the way (including the Citrix acquisition of Octoblu).
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
