(RADCOM) (NASDAQ: RDCM), a leading service assurance provider, today reported its results for the third quarter of 2013, recording a 57% year-over-year increase in revenues, a 37% year-over-year decrease in net loss and strong bookings for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Results for the 3rd Quarter of 2013
Q3 revenues totaled $4.8 million, up 57% compared with $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2012, but down 13% compared with the second quarter of 2013. The sequential decline reflects the timing of recognition of approximately $800,000 in revenues that was delayed from the third to the fourth quarter. These revenues add to the Company’s visibility, and form a solid basis for a strong fourth quarter.
Gross margin for the period was 50%, reflecting the impact of a large, old and low-margin project that was recognized from the backlog. Gross margin is expected to return to normal levels in future quarters.
With year-over-year revenue growth and steady operating expenses, the Company was able to slash its net loss by 37% on a year-over-year basis despite the low gross margin. Net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $(1,148,000), or $(0.15) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), compared with $(1,810,000), or $(0.28) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter of 2012. On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the quarter totaled $(1,017,000), or $(0.13) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), compared with $(1,684,000), or $(0.26) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the parallel quarter of 2012. Despite the net loss, the Company achieved positive cash flow during the period, reflecting successful cash management and reduced expenses.
Comments of Management
Commenting on the results, David Ripstein, RADCOM’s CEO, said, “The third quarter was a period of continued strategic progress and momentum that was masked by certain events that affected our financial results, as detailed above. Although we are pleased to report another quarter of strong year-over-year growth, the period’s revenue recognition fluctuations prevented us from achieving the sequential growth we had expected. The shifted revenues, combined with the bookings we have achieved during the past few weeks, are a solid basis for a strong fourth quarter in line with the trend that has been building through 2013.
“In fact, a number of factors make us excited about our future prospects: especially the growing size and quality of opportunities in the market, the growth of our sales pipeline and high win rate, the increase in our partner activities and the strength of our bookings and backlog. Equally important, we continue to develop exciting new products that bring even more value to our customers, and whose higher software component will enable us to achieve better gross margins and profitability over the long term. As such, we remain optimistic and continue to see strong growth ahead – in both the top and bottom line – for 2013.”
Results for the 1st Nine Months of 2013
For the first nine months of 2013, revenues increased by 39% to $14.8 million from $10.6 million in the parallel period of 2012. Net loss for the period was reduced by nearly 73% to $(1.5) million, or $(o.22) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), from $(5.7) million, or $(o.88) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), in the first nine months of 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the period was $(1.1) million, or $(0.16) per share (basic and diluted), compared with $(5.3) million, or $(0.82) per share (basic and diluted) for the first nine months of 2012.
