FREMONT, Calif., April 25, 2013 — Ikanos Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: IKAN), a leading provider of advanced broadband semiconductor and integrated firmware products for the digital home, today announced its financial results for the fiscal first quarter of 2013 ended March 31, 2013.

“Ikanos achieved first quarter results within guidance with revenue of $26.2 million and GAAP gross profit of 53%.  Additionally we effectively reduced operating expenses to $18.3 million and improved our cash and short–term investments position to $31.6 million,” said Dennis Bencala, chief financial officer and vice president finance of Ikanos.

Omid Tahernia, president and CEO, said, “We are very encouraged by some of the recent announcements in Australia and Germany regarding plans for deployments of vectored VDSL in those markets.   We believe these and other similar announcements earlier by large global carriers such as AT&T and Deutsche Telecom are indicative of the increasing momentum behind the adoption of vectoring technology as a key enabler for carriers to bring 100 Mbps DSL services to their subscribers.”  Mr. Tahernia added, “Following the successful launch of our NodeScale™ Vectoring Velocity-3 chipset at BBWF last October, we have completed several lab trials at top tier carriers and OEMs with very positive results, putting the Velocity-3 in an excellent position as the industry transition to VDSL2 and vectoring continues to gain momentum.”

“We are also excited about the adoption of our Fusiv® family of CPE products by leading global carriers, as indicated by the recent launch of Orange Livebox Play service based on our Vx185 integrated broadband and gateway processor,” said Mr. Tahernia. “While the major revenue ramp for the Fusiv® family has been delayed to second half of the year due in large part to our customers’ inventory issues, we are encouraged by the design-win traction the product line is seeing in the market.”

Financial Highlights
Ikanos reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and additionally on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP gross profits, non-GAAP operating expenses and non-GAAP earnings per share, where applicable, exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring charges and amortization of intangible assets. Ikanos has provided these measures because its management believes these additional non-GAAP measures are useful to investors for performing financial analysis as these additional measures highlight Ikanos’ recurring operating results. Ikanos’ management uses these non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate its operating performance and to plan for its future. However, non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP reporting. For a reconciliation of GAAP versus non-GAAP financial information, please see the attached schedules.
