Ixia Research Report

On July 8, 2013, Ixia (Ixia) announced certain preliminary financial results for Q2 2013. The Company expects total revenue to be in the range of $114 million to $116 million, which is below the previous guidance of $119 million to $122 million. Revenues from the Company's 2012 acquisitions of Anue Systems, Inc. (Anue) and BreakingPoint Systems, Inc. (BreakingPoint) are expected to be at the higher end of the guidance of $28 million to $32 million. Vic Alston, President and CEO of Ixia, stated, "We are disappointed with our topline performance this quarter, which was impacted by several factors, including lower than expected revenue from network equipment manufacturers and certain service providers as customers extended review cycles and certain large deals that were pushed into future quarters." Alston continued, "We did, however, see several positive trends in the quarter. Sales to our two largest customers, AT&T and Cisco, were strong and in line with expectations, and our overall book-to-bill ratio was in excess of one. Additionally, the performance of our 2012 acquisitions, Anue and BreakingPoint, was very encouraging and revenue is expected to register at the high end of our expectations for the second quarter. These indicators give us confidence that our competitive position remains strong although we remain cautious about the near-term spending environment."
