Mitel Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Financial Results Record Gross Margin of 56.2% in the Second Quarter OTTAWA, Nov. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitel® (Nasdaq:MITL) (TSX:MNW), a leading provider of cloud and premises-based unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended October 31, 2012. All financial results are in U.S. dollars. "In the second quarter we exceeded our guidance across all metrics and achieved record overall gross margin of 56.2%, despite a challenging macroeconomic environment," said Richard McBee, Chief Executive Officer, Mitel. "We saw solid revenue growth of 5% sequentially in our business which was attributable to our disciplined execution across the entire company, continued improvements on our channel-focused sales model and product leadership in virtualization and cloud offerings." Fiscal Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights oAdjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $24.1 million or 16.6%, up from $21.4 million or 13.8% from the prior year quarter. oNon-GAAP net income from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $14.2 million, or $0.25 per share, up from $12.6 million, or $0.23 per share, in the same period last year. oNet loss from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $1.6 million, or $0.03 per share, diluted, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $1.7 million, or $0.03 per share, diluted, in the same period last year. oRevenue from continuing operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $145.5 million, compared to $154.6 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. oGross margins from continuing operations were 56.2%, up from 53.0% in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. oCash and cash equivalents as of October 31, 2012 were $87.4 million. oOperating cash flows for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $16.7 million. oIn August 2012, in response to macroeconomic concerns, we implemented a restructuring plan that included the termination of approximately 200 employees as well as the closure of excess facilities. We recorded a charge of $9.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 relating to these actions. "We are pleased with our operating results this quarter, which was driven by solid execution of our business model and our ability to expand our gross margins and proactively manage our cost structure despite the challenging macroeconomic environment," said Steve Spooner, Chief Financial Officer, Mitel. "While we continue to remain cautious in our forecast, our results this quarter reinforce our confidence in our business model." Given that the company has previously announced the proposed sale of DataNet/CommSource, the results of the business unit are presented as discontinued operations, and prior period amounts have been adjusted accordingly. Please refer to the GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation tables in this release and a discussion of the use of non-GAAP measures under the heading, "Non-GAAP Financial Measurements" below. Business Unit Results oMitel Communications Solutions revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $122.0 million, compared to $129.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
