The Company ended the first quarter of 2012 with approximately $89.5 million in cash and liquid investments, equivalent to $4.82 per basic share, a decrease of $1.1 million from December 31, 2011. The decrease reflects $2.3 million used in operating activities and $0.3 million for capital expenditures offset by $1.5 million received from the exercise of options.
Boaz Raviv, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Our Video Business Unit exceeded our expectations in the first quarter due to higher than expected sales of both our infrastructure and endpoint products. This strong performance more than offset lower Technology Business Unit revenues.
“Over the past two years we have been successfully transforming RADVISION into an end-to-end videoconferencing solution provider with leading technology. That transformation has continued in 2012. In March, we debuted the first and the flagship product of our next generation video system, the SCOPIA XT5000. Designed for the high end market, the SCOPIA XT5000 is the most powerful HD video conferencing system in its class available on the market. In April, we expanded our next generation HD video conferencing room system portfolio with the SCOPIA XT4200, which offers outstanding value and cost-effective HD video communications, especially suited for the smaller and mid-sized conference room. We are gratified by the market response to our new portfolio.
“Since our founding in 1992, RADVISION has been a leading innovator in video communications technology. We are excited to continue that tradition as part of Avaya, a leading global provider of business collaboration and communications solutions. By joining forces, we plan to create a very powerful force in the unified communications marketplace.”
The Company noted that RADVISION and Avaya expect their merger to be completed in the second quarter of 2012.
GAAP versus NON-GAAP Presentation
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), the Company uses non-GAAP measures of operating results, net income and earnings per share, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude other than temporary impairment of available for sale marketable securities, the expenses recorded for stock compensation in accordance with ASC 718, amortization of purchased intangibles, prior year’s tax adjustments and merger-related costs. These non-GAAP financial measures are provided to enhance overall understanding of the current financial performance and prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management, and investors as these non-GAAP results exclude other than temporary impairment of available for sale marketable securities, the expenses recorded for stock compensation in accordance with ASC 718, amortization of purchased intangibles, prior year’s tax adjustments and merger-related costs that the Company believes are not indicative of the core operating results. Further, these non-GAAP results are one of the primary indicators management uses for assessing the Company's performance, allocating resources and planning and forecasting future periods. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures may be different from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
