Management Commentary

“Total non-GAAP revenue increased twenty-eight percent year-over-year, with growth across all major product lines, geographies, and verticals,” said Jerry M. Kennelly, chairman and CEO. “Riverbed's core revenue, excluding OPNET, grew 7% sequentially to $215 million in the second quarter. Non-GAAP revenue from the acquired OPNET products was $40 million, as we still have work to do integrating the two companies,” continued Kennelly.

“Our market expanding products outside of WAN optimization and OPNET grew almost 50% compared to last year, and we believe our multi-product strategy to deliver unmatched application performance will allow us to accelerate the company's revenue growth.”

Q2 Financial Results

The company reported a net loss of $16.5 million or $0.10 per share, compared to net income of $18.1 million or $0.11 per share, in last year's second-quarter.

On an adjusted basis, which is comparable to analysts' consensus, Riverbed reported net income of $36.6 million or $0.22 per share. This was in-line with analysts' consensus EPS estimates.

Total revenue in the period was $250 million versus $198 million a year ago. Non-GAAP revenue was $255 million compared to $199 million last year. This missed analysts' consensus revenue estimates of $257.71 million.
