Restructuring Program

Today, the Company is announcing a restructuring program to align its operations with its evolving business needs. This is also due, in part, to the recent unexpected churn of a large customer. Under this program, the Company intends to reduce operating expenses by 10 to 15 percent. The actions associated with this program are expected to be largely completed by September 30, 2018. The Company expects to take a restructuring charge in the third quarter of 2018, which will be excluded from its full year 2018 non-GAAP operating loss and non-GAAP net loss per share calculation.

Business Outlook

The Company is reiterating its previously-issued 2018 outlook. For the full year 2018, the Company expects:

  • GAAP revenue in the range of $150 million to $155 million
  • Non-GAAP operating loss in the range of $15 million to $20 million
  • Non-GAAP net loss per share of approximately $0.11 to $0.15 based on approximately 137 million to 138 million shares
