HOD HASHARON, Israel, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Key highlights:

First quarter revenues reached $24.2 million, a 41% increase over the first quarter of 2011 and 10% increase over previous quarter

First quarter non-GAAP net profit of $5.0 million; non-GAAP EPS increases to $0.15 from $0.14 in the fourth quarter of 2011, despite dilution effect due to public offering

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities totaled $165.4 million; generated approximately $4.4 million in cash from operations during the quarter

Allot Communications Ltd. ALLT +8.64% , a leading supplier of service optimization and revenue generation solutions for fixed and mobile data worldwide, today announced continued growth in sales and profitability during the first quarter of 2012.

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2012 reached $24.2 million, a 41% increase from the $17.2 million of revenues reported for the first quarter of 2011, and a 10% increase from the $22.0 million of revenues reported for the fourth quarter of 2011. On a GAAP basis, net profit for the first quarter of 2012 was $3.2 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share. This compares with net profit of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per basic share and $0.06 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2011, and net profit of $3.5 million, or $0.13 per basic share and $0.12 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.

The weighted average number of diluted shares increased in the first quarter of 2012 mainly reflecting the issuance of new shares as part of the Company's public offering which closed on November 15, 2011. The share count now fully reflects all shares issued in the public offering.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the impact of share-based compensation, amortization of certain intangibles and certain one-time charges incurred related to M&A activities and compliance with regulatory matters, non-GAAP net profit for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $5.0 million, or $0.16 per basic share and $0.15 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net profit of $2.2 million, or $0.09 per basic share and $0.08 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2011, and non-GAAP net profit $4.2 million or $0.15 per basic share and $0.14 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results are provided in the accompanying Tables 2 and 3. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes that they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes that they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating performance.

"Revenues continued to grow during the quarter as we continue to see a healthy inflow of both new and expansion orders," commented Rami Hadar, Allot Communications' President and Chief Executive Officer. "As we predicted, over-the-top (OTT) applications are not only overwhelming networks, but are now actually impacting service providers' revenues by offering free and low-cost alternatives to their offerings. Our solutions not only provide a way to manage bandwidth consumption for these services, but offer our customers the ability to monetize their networks by introducing creative data plans and to actually share revenues with OTT content providers."

Recently, the Company achieved the following significant goals:

During the quarter, received orders from 17 large service providers, 5 of which represented new customers;

Announced it had received a follow-on order from an Asian Tier 1 mobile operator to support an LTE network rollout;

Announced it had received an initial order worth approximately US$4 million from a Tier 1 Latin American fixed/mobile operator; and

Announced signing a definitive agreement to purchase Ortiva Wireless, which provides Allot with a best-of-breed video optimization solution.

As of March 31, 2012, cash, cash equivalents, short term deposits and marketable securities totaled $165.4 million, with no debt.
