Along with an index tracking Cloud Adoption, Devoncroft is also publishing the first installment of an index tracking IP-Based Infrastructure Adoption in the global broadcast and media industry.   You may download a complimentary copy by clicking the below link.

The index is intended as a public reference on the media industry’s historical, current, and forecasted adoption of IP-based technology infrastructure for media operations.

Using a similar methodology as Devoncroft’s Cloud Adoption Index, the IP Adoption Index combines a decade of Devoncroft research on technology adoption in the media sector with annual Big Broadcast Survey data to arrive a simple, single value representing both current and anticipated adoption of IP-based technology infrastructure.

We will publish updates to this index at regular intervals based on the ongoing research activities of Devoncroft.

How to Interpret the Index
We have chosen an index to keep the presentation simple and well-understood.  Please note the calculated index values do not have standalone meaning.  Rather, given the construction of the index, the percentage change in the index is a proxy for the percentage change and anticipated percentage change in the adoption profile of IP-based technology infrastructure.

Feedback, Comments 
This index was only possible after consultation with many industry stakeholders on how best to combine and visualize the underlying data.  Thank you to all our supporters who made this index possible.

We plan to continue to improve this regular index based on feedback from the global media technology community.

If you would like to share any comments or suggestions for the index or if you would like to become a direct supporter of the index, please contact us.

Upcoming Index Expansion
A more detailed version of the index will publish later this month providing greater detail on the individual research components constituting the IP Adoption Index.

Harmonic Q2 2017 Revenue Declines 25% as Industry-Wide Structural Shift to Cloud, Software, and SaaS Accelerates

Analysis, broadcast industry technology trends, broadcast technology market research, Broadcast technology vendor financials, OTT Video, Quarterly Results | Posted by Joe Zaller
Aug 02 2017

Harmonic announced that its revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $82.9 million, down 24.9% compared to the previous year, and down 0.8% versus the previous quarter.

Bookings for the second quarter of 2017 were $91.1 million, down 22.3% compared to last year, and up 11.0% compared to the previous quarter.

The company attributed its revenue decline to a slowdown in spending, resulting from a strategic shift in spending at broadcasters and media companies, who the company says are increasingly prioritizing OTT and direct-to-consumer offerings over traditional linear platform deployments.

“Over-the-top software, cloud solutions and related subscription business models are becoming more significant drivers of our Video business,” Harmonic CEO Patrick Harshman told investors during the company’s Q2 2017 earnings call. “While subscription video-on-demand over-the-top platform growth is not news, the drive of traditional media companies and service providers to new unified live over-the-top services targeted at both mobile devices and the big screen in the living room is accelerating faster than we anticipated.”

On a GAAP basis, the Harmonic’s net loss for Q2 2017 was $31.5 million, or $(0.39) per diluted share in Q2 2017. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $20.7 million, or $(0.27) per diluted share last year, and a GAAP net loss of $24 million, or $(0.30) per diluted share last quarter.

In light of Harmonic’s declining revenues and ongoing losses, the company indicated it planned to reign-in costs during the second half of 2017.  Newly-appointed CFO Sanjay Kalra told analysts: “recognizing these accelerating marketplace changes, we have initiated a realignment of our investments, spending and infrastructure to optimally align with customer demand and opportunity… Our combined second half [2017] operating expenses will be $11 million to $15 million below first half operating expenses.”

GAAP gross margins were 41.1% for the quarter, compared to 43.1% last year, and 48.8% last quarter. The company attributed the decline to lower than expected revenue in the quarter.

Non-GAAP gross margins were 47.9%, compared to 53% last year, and 52.1% last quarter. Non-GAAP video product gross margin was 51.4%, compared to 56.1% last year, and 54.9% last quarter. Non-GAAP cable edge gross margin was 19% during Q2 2017, compared to 38.3% last year, and 29.1% last quarter.

Research and development expense was $27 million for the quarter, compared to $26.5 million last year, and $26.5 million last quarter. Expressed as a percentage of total revenue, R&D expense represented 32.9% of sales in the quarter, compared to 24.3% last year.

SG&A expense was $32.6 million for the quarter, compared to $36.5 million last year, and $36.5 million last quarter. Expressed as a percentage of total revenue, SG&A expense represented 39.6% of sales in the quarter, compared to 33.5% last year.

 

Geographic Revenues

Revenue in the Americas region was $40.6 million during Q2 2017, a decrease of 29.6% versus the prior year, and an increase of 7.1% versus the previous quarter. The Americas accounted for 49.3% of total Q2 2017 revenue, down from 53.1% last year, and up from 45.7% last quarter.

Discussing the company’s sharp revenue decline in the Americas, Harshman indicated the industry has reached an inflection point in ongoing structural shift from linear platforms to OTT and direct-to-consumer offerings: “Particularly in the U.S. the strategic emphasis on high-quality over-the-top services is impacting the pace of investment in more traditional broadcast and pay -TV systems… What we’re seeing now is a pullback on investments in those traditional platforms and a real strategic mandate to an all-hands-on-deck on the over-the-top, the streaming strategy. It’s not just down to a delayed decision around specific technology, but it’s more, I think, a derivative of a broader strategic shift that we’re seeing playing out…. There’s a lot happening in the media and pay -TV landscape in the U.S., so there’s a lot of thinking going on, there’s a lot of planning, not the least of which is related to the underlying technology platforms. But there’s a lot that our customers are grappling with and trying to figure out.”

EMEA revenue in Q2 2017 was $24.95 million, down 25.3% versus the prior year, and down 1.9% versus the previous quarter. The EMEA region accounted for 30.3% of total Q2 2017 revenue, compared to 30.7% last year and 30.7% last quarter.

APAC revenue in Q2 2017 was $16.75 million, down 14.5% versus the prior year, and down 4.8% versus the previous quarter. The APAC region accounted for 20.3% of total Q2 2017 revenue, compared to 16.2% last year and 23.6% last quarter.

 

Product Revenues

Video products revenue for the quarter was $44.8 million, down 27.9% versus the previous year, and down 1.5% versus the previous quarter. As a percent of total sales, video products represented 54.5% of revenue in Q2 2017, compared to 56.8% in year-earlier period, and 54.9% in the previous quarter.

Similar to other firms that have embarked on the shift from hardware/CapEx revenues to software/SaaS revenues, company CFO Karla explained: “when a traditional CapEx booking comes in, we typically recognize the vast majority of that booking as revenue immediately or within a quarter or two. But if that booking comes in as a SaaS order, revenue is instead recognized ratably over time, resulting in much less current period revenue, but an expanded backlog. So to be clear, as our Video segment mix shift to SaaS, we expect a near-term revenue and operating profit headwind, offset by a growing backlog that over time will provide greater revenue visibility.”

Harshman took an optimistic tone when asked about the company’s shift to software and SaaS.  “While software-as-a-service is still a relatively small component of this overall over-the-top business, the adoption of our SaaS solutions in the second quarter was greater than expected,” he said. “Cloud and SaaS total contract value grew 90% sequentially to a little over $7.5 million, while our annual recurring revenue grew 87% to nearly $6 million. Had these subscription bookings been traditional CapEx orders recognizes revenue immediately, second quarter Video revenue would have grown year-over-year. I will be surprised if [SaaS isn’t 20% of our video revenue] within a year…. I mean I hesitate a little bit, but only because just a quarter ago, we were sitting here relatively pleased candidly that we were at 5% and to see it surge to 8% in the second quarter was certainly a surprise to us.”

Cable Edge revenue was $5.36 million during the quarter, a decline of 66% versus the previous year, and an increase of 9.8% versus the previous quarter. Cable Edge represented 6.5% of revenue in Q2 2017, a decrease versus the 14.4% contribution in the previous year, and an increase versus the 5.9% in the previous quarter.

Harmonic’s Cable Edge business has been in decline for more than a year due to the transition by cable TV operators from legacy EdgeQAM products, to a new generation of products based on C-CAP (Converged Cable Access Platform) technology.

Once again, Harshman was optimistic when describing the outlook for Cable Edge products.  “The real news here is that we continue to make material progress advancing our CableOS technology leadership and new business pipeline,” he said. “Our confidence is further bolstered by recent advanced purchase orders. Since our May conference call and through July, we received over $15 million of new CableOS orders, bringing our CableOS backlog to approximately $20 million. Relative to our initial expectations, we are seeing a higher percentage of this demand being associated with new distributed access architectures, which make sense given the growing industry focus.”

Services and support revenue were $32.1 million in Q2 2017, an increase of 4.0% versus the previous year, and a decline of 9.8% versus the previous quarter.  As a percentage of overall revenue, service and support accounted for 39.0% in Q2 2017, versus 28.8% last year, and 39.2% last quarter.

 

Segment Revenues

Broadcast and Media sales were $35.85 million, down 18.1% versus last year, and up 2.8% versus the previous quarter. In aggregate, Broadcast and Media accounted for 43.6% of total revenue, compared to 40.3% last year, and 42.1% last quarter.

Service Provider revenues were $46.42 million, down 29.4% versus last year, and down 3.3% versus the previous quarter. In aggregate, Service Providers accounted for 56.4% of total revenue, compared to 60.5% last year, and 57.9% last quarter.

 

Business Outlook

The company provided the following guidance for Q3 and Q4 2017.

For the third-quarter of 2017, the company expects revenue to be within the range of $80 – $90 million, comprised of Video revenue in the range of $72 ­- $81 million; and Cable Edge revenue in the range of $8 – $9 million. Q3 non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be in the range of 51% to 52%, with Video gross margin of 55% to 56% and Cable Edge gross margins of 20% to 21%.

For the fourth-quarter of 2017, the company expects non-GAAP revenue to be within the range of $90 – $100 million, which includes Video revenue of $80 – $86 million and Cable Edge revenue of $10 – $14 million.  Q4 2017 non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be 52% to 53.5% with Video gross margins of 55% to 57% and Cable Edge gross margins of 27% to 29%.

Employee count at the end of Q2 2017 was 1,338 compared to 1,403 last year, and 1,358 at the end of Q1 2017.
