3Com Q2 Loss Narrows

(RTTNews) - Communications network equipment maker 3Com Corp. (COMS) said Wednesday that second quarter net loss narrowed from last year as revenue jumped 81%due to the inclusion of the revenue of its joint venture H3C or Huawei-3Com in the current period.

The Marlborough, Massachusetts-based company reported a GAAP net loss for the second quarter of $3.5 million or $0.01 per share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $10.7 million or $0.03 per share for the year-ago quarter.

The current year second quarter results include restructuring, amortization and stock-based compensation expense of $20 million, or $0.05 per share, while the year-ago quarter results included restructuring, amortization and stock-based compensation expense of $12 million or $0.03 per share and a benefit of $24 million or $0.06 per share, resulting from a foreign tax settlement.

On average, 8 analysts polled by First Call / Thomson Financial expected the company to report breakeven per share for the second quarter.

GAAP gross margin for the second quarter improved 5 percentage points from last year to 45%, driven mainly by the inclusion of H3C results in the current period results.

GAAP operating loss for the second quarter reduced to $9 million from $42 million in the prior year period due to reduced operating loss in the Secure, Converged Networking or SCN segment and $21 million of operating income from H3C's results.

Second quarter non-GAAP operating income was $10 million, a $40 million improvement compared to the prior-year quarter's non-GAAP operating loss of $30 million.

GAAP revenue for the second quarter surged 81% to $332.98 million from $184.33 million in the same quarter last year as a result of the inclusion of H3C revenue in the current period. Six analysts had consensus revenue estimate of $314.60 million for the company's second quarter.

Compared to non-GAAP revenue for the prior-year period, which includes the results of H3C as if it had been consolidated from the beginning of the prior-year period, 3Com's revenue grew 18%.

Networking revenue for the second quarter increased to $272.9 million from $131.7 million a year ago, while security revenue rose to $31.6 million from $20.9 million last year. Voice revenue increased to $16.5 million from $14.2 million last year. Services revenue and connectivity products revenues for the second quarter showed declines as compared to the prior year period.

SCN segment revenue increased 7% to 166.5 million from $155.8 million in the year-ago quarter, while H3C revenue surged 12% to $190.3 million from $170.0 million last year.

In November, 3Com announced that it has agreed to buy Huawei Technologies' 49% stake in H3C that it does not already own for $882 million. The acquisition is subject to customary approval in the People's Republic of China.

To fund the purchase price, 3Com said today, it has secured committed financing from its international banking partner for up to $500 million in Hong Kong-based senior secured bank debt. The rest will come from the company's cash and short-term investments.

The companies set up the joint venture in 2003 to pool research and development costs. H3C gave 3Com access to Asian markets, where Huawei, China's largest communications equipment maker, has a strong presence. Huawei got an entry into U.S. and European markets through 3Com.

3Com shares, which are trading in the range of $3.55 to $5.70 in the last one year, closed Wednesday's regular trading session at $4.13, up 6 cents or 1.47% but lost 6 cents or 1.45% in after hours trading.

3Com Narrows Loss on Strong H3C Integration
Friday March 23, 6:48 am ET

Computer-networking equipment maker 3Com Corp. reported Thursday afternoon a FQ3 loss that was narrower than previous losses. The company reported a $5 million loss ($0.01/share), versus a year-ago loss of $33 million ($0.05/share). Revenue surged 82% to $323 million against $178 million in Q3 2006. Analyst estimates were expecting a $0.01 gain (Reuters) or a $0.03 loss (Bloomberg) on revenue of $329 million. Last November 3Com agreed to buy Huawei Technologies' 49% stake in their joint H3C for $882 million, with an implied value of $1.8 billion. Analysts were mixed on the deal; many 3Com 23 03 2007 Chartsaw it as a risk. 3Com said Thursday its robust sales increase came primarily from its consolidation of H3C; 3Com is now the #2 network equipment maker in Asia, behind Cisco. CEO Edgar Masri said he feels very good about the H3C integration. The company has now lost money in 28 consecutive quarters. The company forecast Q4 H3C sales of $180 million and 'sequential' growth in the rest of its business, suggesting that revenue for Q4 will come in higher than $337 million, exceeding analyst forecasts of $331 million. In after-hours trading following the report, shares were up 3.7% to $3.79.

Citadel takes 8.4% stake in 3Com

(Crain’s) — Chicago-based hedge fund company Citadel Investment Group LLC bought an 8.4% stake in 3Com Corp. and has asked management for a meeting to discuss Citadel’s ideas for improving performance at the computer networking technology company.

3Com’s share price has underperformed for “many years,” and has slipped further since 3Com bought out its Chinese venture, according to a letter to 3Com’s board including in a Citadel filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“We believe that many options exist today for the creation of substantial value for 3Com’s shareholders,” Citadel wrote.

It’s not the first time Chicago-based Citadel, with $12 billion under management, has built a stake in a company and then lobbied management to make specific strategic moves. Last year Citadel took a 9% stake in Mentor Graphics and sent a letter urging management to do more than just cost-cutting to build shareholder value.

Shares of Mentor Graphics have gained more than 50% since then.

A Citadel spokesman declined to comment on Citadel’s goals beyond what was stated in the letter. Citadel’s 33.5 million shares in Malborough, Mass.-based 3Com, built since March, are valued at about $141 million.
