Radisys Announces Preliminary Second Quarter 2017 Revenue

HILLSBORO, Ore.--()--Radisys Corporation (NASDAQ: RSYS), the services acceleration company, today announced preliminary revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2017 of approximately $35 million, compared to the Company’s previously stated guidance range of $41 million to $47 million.

“Delayed buying decisions at two of our largest customers resulted in second quarter revenue below our previously expected range,” stated Brian Bronson, Radisys President and Chief Executive Officer. “Despite these near-term challenges, I remain encouraged by the incremental progress we are continuing to make in proof-of-concepts and trials with tier-one customers across our strategic product lines, including initial engagements for our now commercially available FlowEngine TDE-2000 product. Our highly disruptive products and solutions are actively receiving increased attention from leading service providers, which reinforces my belief that we remain on track to secure new commercial wins in the second half of 2017.

“Additionally, we recently completed an amendment to our existing line of credit with Silicon Valley Bank and Square 1 Bank. The amended agreement provides us with greater financial flexibility by revising our quarterly EBITDA covenants. Importantly, this amendment supports our ability to continue executing toward our long-term strategic objectives.”

The Company will provide full quarterly results and additional commentary on recent progress as part of its second quarter earnings conference call scheduled for August 1, 2017.

These preliminary, unaudited revenue estimates are based on management's initial review of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 and remain subject to completion of the Company's customary quarterly closing and review procedures. There will not be a conference call in conjunction with this press release.

Line of Credit Amendment

On June 30, 2017, the Company amended its existing line of credit, specifically revising quarterly EBITDA covenants for the balance of 2017 as well as allowing for an add-back of restructuring costs tied to employee severance and potential non-cash inventory charges largely related to the Company’s legacy embedded product lines. Full details of the amendment are disclosed in the Company’s SEC filing on Form 8-K.
