OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - DragonWave Inc. (DWI.TO)(DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, today reported financial results for its second quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended August 31, 2012. All figures are reported in U.S. dollars and were prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
Revenue for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was $44.2 million, compared with $13.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 and $13.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. DragonWave had one customer, Nokia Siemens Networks, who generated more than 10% of revenue in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012. Revenue through the Nokia Siemens Networks channel totaled $32.3 million in the quarter.
Gross margin for the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was 15%, compared with 42% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012 and 32% in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The gross margin in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 reflects the inclusion of an inventory impairment provision of $2.6 million. Without the inventory provision, the gross margin in the second quarter was 21%.
Comprehensive loss applicable to shareholders in the second quarter of fiscal year 2013 was ($1.1) million or ($0.03) per basic and diluted share, compared to a loss of ($2.2) million or ($0.06) per basic and diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal year 2012. These results include a one-time gain of $19.4 million related to the accounting treatment for the acquisition of the Nokia Siemens Networks microwave transport business.
"We continue to advance our strategic priorities," said DragonWave President and CEO Peter Allen. "Our partnership with Nokia Siemens Networks is still in the integration phase and involves a wide range of activities, including access to a wide range of major global operators. Following the June 1, 2012 closing of the acquisition of Nokia Siemens Networks'' microwave transport business, we rationalized our operations and reduced costs; we will continue to manage our cost profile to achieve profitability as we gain greater visibility into revenue opportunities."
Cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $44 million, compared to $42.6 million at the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.
Revenue for the first six months of fiscal year 2013 was $57.1 million, compared with $24.7 million for the first six months of 2012. Net loss for the first six months of fiscal 2013 was ($13.7) million or ($0.37) per basic and diluted share, compared with ($12.1) million or ($0.34) per basic and diluted share for the first six months of fiscal 2012.
DragonWave also announced today that Gerry Spencer, Chairman of the Board, is stepping down as a director for family reasons. "Gerry has made a significant contribution to DragonWave," said Mr. Allen. "We thank him for his service and wish him well in his future endeavours. Company director Claude Haw will become the new board chair. Claude has more than 30 years of experience in the technology and telecommunications industry. He first joined the DragonWave Board in 2003. I look forward to working with Claude in his new capacity."
