|In $ thousands||Q3 2014||Q3 2013||Q1-Q3 2014||Q1-Q3 2013|
|Net profit (loss) (GAAP)||$776||$(1,148)||$1,093||$(1,537)|

Third Quarter: RADCOM’s revenues for the third quarter totaled $6.0 million, up 26% compared with Q3 2013 and 21% compared with Q2 2014. Gross margin for the quarter increased to 66.0% from 50.4% in Q3 2013. The significant rise in gross margin reflected the Company’s continued transition to a software-driven business model together with the sales of MaveriQ, its NFV-ready software-based solution, countered partially by the lower margins of some older projects not yet completed.
Net income for the quarter totaled $776,000, or $0.10 per basic ordinary share ($0.09 per diluted ordinary share) compared with a net loss of $(1,148,000), or $(0.15) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter of 2013. This is more than triple the $207,000 net profit reported in Q2 2014, representing a record net margin of 12.9%.
On a non-GAAP basis, net income totaled $872,000, or $0.11 (basic) and $.010 (diluted) per ordinary share, compared with a net loss of $(1,017,000), or $(0.13) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter of 2013. This represented a record non-GAAP net margin of 14.5%.
Collections during the period totaled $4.8 million, raising the Company’s cash balance to $4.5 million at the end of the quarter, up 17% compared with the second quarter and 280% compared with the end of 2013.
First Nine Months of 2014: For the first nine months of 2014, RADCOM’s revenues increased by 11% to $16.4 million from $14.8 million in the first nine months of 2013. Gross margin for the period increased to 69.2% from 61.6% in the prior-year period, reflecting the Company’s ongoing transition to a software company, as mentioned above.
Net income for the first nine months totaled $1.1 million, or $0.14 (basic) and $0.13 (diluted) per ordinary share, compared with the net loss of $(1.5) million, or $(0.22) per ordinary share (basic and diluted), recorded in the first nine months of 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the period totaled $1.5 million, or $0.18 (basic) and $0.17 (diluted) per ordinary share, compared with the non-GAAP net loss of $(1,100,000), or $(0.16) per ordinary share (basic and diluted) reported in the first nine months of 2013.
Comments of Management
“We are very pleased to report another strong quarter that is moving RADCOM to new levels of revenues, profits and margins,” commented Mr. David Ripstein, RADCOM’s President and CEO. “With revenues above $6 million and growing sales of software-based products, our gross margin continues to climb towards our long-term target of above 75%. This has enabled us to deliver our fourth straight profitable quarter and third straight quarter of positive cash flow, achieving an all-time record for our operating and net profit with a 14.5% net margin (non-GAAP). And we believe the best is still ahead.”
Mr. Ripstein continued, “These outstanding results derive from the market’s exceedingly strong reception of MaverIQ, our unique software-based CEM solution, whose superior ‘anti-churn’ capabilities are being recognized by Tier I & Tier II 4G/LTE/Data service providers throughout the world. This capability has given us entry into more and larger tenders than ever before, and we are enjoying a strong win rate. We feel well positioned to grow in step with the LTE build-out, a trend we believe has the power to continue driving our results throughout 2015.”
