“The first quarter represented a strong start to the year on multiple fronts,” said Ray Dolan, president and chief executive officer. “We delivered excellent financial results which exceeded expectations, and we continued to demonstrate strong commercial execution and product innovation with the expansion of our SBC portfolio and entry into the fast-growing Diameter Signaling market. We returned a substantial amount of capital to shareholders in the form of share repurchases, while also simultaneously reducing the ownership concentration of our largest shareholder.” Dolan continued, “We believe that our operations, competitive position and foundation for profitable growth are stronger today than ever before.”

“Our strong financial execution and pristine balance sheet have enabled us to invest organically in our business, pursue strategic acquisition opportunities and return excess capital to stockholders,” said Mark Greenquist, chief financial officer. Greenquist continued, “During the first quarter we closed the $34 million acquisition of PT and repurchased approximately $75 million of our shares, while still ending the quarter with over $159 million in cash and investments. This strong cash position, coupled with continued generation of cash from our operations (which was approximately $21 million in the first quarter), gives us financial flexibility for the future.”

Performance Technologies, Incorporated

On February 19, 2014, the Company announced the successful completion of its acquisition of PT. PT adds Diameter Signaling capabilities required in all-IP, IMS 4G/LTE (Long-Term Evolution) networks, and is expected to fortify the Company’s mobility and virtualization strategies.

SBC 7000

On February 25, 2014, the Company announced the SBC 7000. The SBC 7000 sets new performance standards, delivering nearly two times greater scale than competitive solutions for secure, reliable delivery of multimedia services in the world's largest networks. The SBC 7000 is designed to address scalability requirements for real-time, multimedia communications with the capability to license up to 150,000 sessions, the highest in the industry, with fully enabled security, media and transcoding features. It is purpose-built to support emerging services such as high definition (HD) voice and video, Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) and Rich Communications Services (RCS), and effectively addresses the unprecedented traffic demands these services will place on networks at access and interconnect borders.

Reduction in Ownership Concentration of Largest Shareholder and Stock Buyback Program

On March 25, 2014, the Company successfully concluded the previously announced underwritten public offering of 41.5 million shares of its common stock on behalf of Galahad Securities, Ltd. (Legatum Group) at $3.53 per share. The offering reduced the Legatum Group’s ownership in Sonus to approximately 7.5%, or 18.5 million shares. As part of the underwritten offering, the Company repurchased from the Legatum Group approximately 21.5 million shares (of the 41.5 million shares sold) at the underwriter’s price of approximately $3.49 per share.

The shares purchased from the Legatum Group, taken together with all past repurchases under the Company’s existing stock buyback program announced in July 2013, has resulted in an aggregate repurchase of approximately 40 million shares at an average price per share of $3.36. As of March 28, 2014, the Company had 247.7 million shares outstanding, reflecting a 14% reduction in the total number of shares outstanding as compared to June 28, 2013, before the stock buyback program began. Approximately $40.6 million remains available to the Company for potential share repurchases under the stock buyback program.

Cash & Investments

The Company ended the first quarter of 2014 with $159.2 million in cash and investments, including the impact of the PT acquisition and the share repurchases described above.

The information in this release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical facts contained in this release, including statements in the section “2014 Second Quarter and Full Year Outlook,” statements regarding our future results of operations and financial position, business strategy, plans and objectives of management for future operations and plans for future product development and manufacturing, and statements regarding the impact of the PT transaction on Sonus’ financial results, business performance and product offerings, are forward-looking statements.

Forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations and assumptions regarding our business, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including, but not limited to, the timing of our recognition of revenues; economic conditions; our ability to recruit and retain key personnel; difficulties supporting our strategic focus on channel sales; difficulties retaining and expanding our customer base; difficulties leveraging market opportunities; the impact of restructuring activities; our ability to realize benefits from the NET and PT acquisitions; the effects of disruption from the PT transaction, making it more difficult to maintain relationships with employees, customers, business partners or government entities; the success implementing the integration strategies of NET and PT; litigation; actions taken by significant stockholders; difficulties providing solutions that meet the needs of customers; market acceptance of our products and services; rapid technological and market change; our ability to protect our intellectual property rights; our ability to maintain partner, reseller, distribution and vendor support and supply relationships; higher risks in international operations and markets; the impact of increased competition; currency fluctuations; changes in the market price of our common stock; and/or failure or circumvention of our controls and procedures. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. We therefore caution you against relying on any of these forward-looking statements.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Sonus management uses a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, making operating decisions, planning and forecasting future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs. Our annual financial plan is prepared both on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, and the non-GAAP annual financial plan is approved by our board of directors. Continuous budgeting and forecasting for revenue and expenses are conducted on a non-GAAP basis (in addition to GAAP) and actual results on a non-GAAP basis are assessed against the annual financial plan. We consider the use of non-GAAP financial measures helpful in assessing the core performance of our continuing operations and liquidity, and when planning and forecasting future periods. By continuing operations we mean the ongoing results of the business excluding certain costs, including, but not limited to: cost of product revenue related to the fair value write-up of acquired inventory, stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other income arising from the settlement of litigation related to prepaid royalties for software licenses. We also consider the use of non-GAAP earnings per share helpful in assessing the performance of the continuing operations of our business. While our management uses these non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance their understanding of certain aspects of our financial performance, our management does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP measures. In addition, our presentations of these measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered alternatives for, or in isolation from, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, many of the adjustments to Sonus’ financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future.

As part of the assessment of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in connection with the PT acquisition, we were required to increase the aggregate fair value of acquired inventory by $1.8 million. The acquired inventory is being recorded as cost of product revenue through June 27, 2014. We believe that excluding the incremental cost of product revenue resulting from the fair value write-up of this acquired inventory facilitates the comparison of our operating results to our historical results and to other companies in our industry.

Stock-based compensation is different from other forms of compensation, as it is a non-cash expense. For example, a cash salary generally has a fixed and unvarying cash cost. In contrast, the expense associated with an equity-based award is generally unrelated to the amount of cash ultimately received by the employee, and the cost to us is based on a stock-based compensation valuation methodology and underlying assumptions that may vary over time. We believe that excluding non-cash stock-based compensation expense from our operating results facilitates the ability of readers of our financial statements to compare our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

We exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets from non-GAAP expense and income measures. These amortization amounts are inconsistent in frequency and amount and are significantly impacted by the timing and size of acquisitions. Although we exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets from our non-GAAP expenses, we believe that it is important for investors to understand that intangible assets contribute to revenue generation. We believe that excluding the non-cash amortization of intangible assets facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry as if the acquired intangible assets had been developed internally rather than acquired.

We consider certain transition, integration and other acquisition-related costs to be unpredictable and dependent on a significant number of factors that may be outside of our control. We do not consider these acquisition-related costs to be related to the continuing operations of the acquired business or the Company. In addition, the size, complexity and/or volume of an acquisition, which often drives the magnitude of acquisition-related costs, may not be indicative of such future costs. We believe that excluding acquisition-related costs facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

We have recorded restructuring expense to streamline operations and reduce operating costs by closing and consolidating certain facilities and reducing our worldwide workforce. We believe that excluding restructuring expense facilitates the comparison of our financial results to our historical operating results and to other companies in our industry.

In the first quarter of 2014, we recorded $2.25 million of other income related to the settlement of a litigation matter in which we recovered a portion of our losses related to the impairment of certain prepaid royalties for software licenses which we had written off in fiscal 2012. We believe that excluding the other income arising from this settlement facilitates the comparison of our results to our historical results and other companies in our industry.

We believe that providing non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, will allow investors to view the financial results in the way management views the operating results. We further believe that providing this information helps investors to better understand our financial performance and evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by our management to evaluate and measure such performance.
