Radware Revises Guidance for First Quarter Results
Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR) a leading provider of intelligent integrated solutions for ensuring the fast, reliable and secure delivery of networked and Web-enabled applications over IP, today announced that its projected revenues for first quarter of 2006 will be approximately 20 million dollars, compared to previously projected revenues of 22.2 to 22.6 million dollars. On the other hand, deferred revenues at the end of this quarter are expected to have increased by over $1 million compared to December 31, 2005.
Based on the above revised guidance, earnings per share are anticipated to be approximately 7 cents, compared to previously projected earnings per share of approximately 13 cents (both excluding stock based compensation).
"The change in guidance is a result of lower than expected sales in the U.S. during the first quarter," said Roy Zisapel, President and CEO of Radware. "As we announced in January 2006, we replaced our top management in the U.S. this quarter, and started implementing a new sales plan to grow U.S sales beyond the current rate. In our quarterly conference call we will discuss in detail our final first quarter results as well as our plan for the U.S.," said Mr. Zisapel.
Radware management will host a Conference Call on April 28, 2006 at 8:30 AM EDT, to discuss its first quarter results. Dial-in and webcast information will be provided prior to the call.
