Click here to download tables

Tel Aviv, August 1, 2012 — Alvarion Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR) a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced its financial results for the second quarter of 2012.

Second Quarter Highlights
• Revenues of $33.8 million, a 1.5% sequential increase
• GAAP net loss of ($0.17) per share; non-GAAP net loss of ($0.09) per share

Management Comments
“Our second quarter results are in line with our guidance, with products from Carrier unlicensed solutions and Carrier licensed solutions performing as projected. We are particularly pleased with our book-to-bill which was above one as of the end of June,” said Hezi Lapid, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alvarion.

“We believe that we are on track with the turnaround plan we put in place during the second quarter. In addition to the restructuring measures to reduce operating expenses already announced, we have taken additional steps, primarily the establishment of an independent division dedicated to our Carrier licensed solutions. We believe that this new structure will improve our focus across the board in all our different target markets and will help us reach profitability.”

“We are moving in the right direction and believe that we will report improved results in the third quarter. We expect the full impact of our restructuring initiatives to appear in our fourth quarter results, and we continue to aim for at least breakeven operating cash flow and modest profitability by yearend,” concluded Mr. Lapid.

Second Quarter 2012 Results
In the second quarter of 2012, revenues were $33.8 million, an increase of 1.5% from $33.3 million in the first quarter of 2012, and a decrease of 39% from $55.4 million in the second quarter of 2011.

GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2012 was ($10.7) million, or ($0.17) per share, including restructuring and other charges of approximately $3.2 million related mainly to employee termination expenses and vacating office space. This compares to a GAAP net loss of ($6.9) million, or ($0.11) per share in the first quarter of 2012. GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2011 was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per share.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation and other charges, the company reported a net loss of ($5.8) million, or ($0.09) per share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of ($5.4) million, or ($0.09) per share, in the first quarter of 2012, and a non-GAAP net income of $1.5 million, or $0.02 per share, in the second quarter of 2011. Please refer to the accompanying financial table for reconciliation of GAAP financial information to non-GAAP for the second quarter of 2012 and the comparative periods.

Cash used in operations in the second quarter of 2012 was $9 million. As of June 30, 2012, cash, cash equivalents and investments totaled $32 million, after a $7 million repayment of principal on a 3-year loan and a payment of $3 million as a result of the earn-out provision of the Wavion acquisition agreement (which represents the final payment for the Wavion acquisition). Total debt as of June 30, 2012 was $22 million, of which $7 million is classified as short term debt.

Guidance
Management believes revenues in the third quarter of 2012 will be in the range of $31 million to $39 million. Depending on shipment volume and mix, third quarter non-GAAP per share results are expected to range between a loss of ($0.06) and a profit of $0.02. The GAAP per share results are expected to range between a loss of ($0.08) and breakeven, before any one-time charges.

Alvarion® Launches Advanced BreezeMAX® PRO 6000 CPE to Enable a Cost-Effective Solution for Deployments in Fixed and Mobile Environments and Applications

Deployment already completed at Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada's leading rural broadband provider

Tel Aviv, Israel, July 25, 2012 – Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced the new BreezeMAX PRO 6000 CPE with technological breakthroughs for enhanced performance and simplicity. The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 CPE works together with Alvarion’s multi-technology portfolio of products creating a complete ecosystem for best cost-performance from end-to-end.

The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is designed with extended coverage and high data throughput. Operators can benefit from a high performance solution, that is simple to install, maintain and operate, helping to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. This advanced outdoor CPE offers a wide frequency range from 3.3 GHz up to 3.8 GHz. The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 saves time and money with innovative installation breakthroughs, such as LED and Tone connectivity indicators, outdoor voice and data on one unit, and a single cable for both voice and data.

By incorporating customer feedback and years of hands-on field experience, the BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is released with a full software feature set (IPCS-NAT, IPCS-BM, ETH-CS, improved ND&S, class 5 voice services) minimizing compatibility issues and allowing customers to quickly connect more subscribers by just adding the CPE to the existing network.

“The technological foresight in this new CPE delivers our vision of multi-technology platforms to our customers,” states Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “By combining product interoperability, we have created a paradigm shift in the way our customers are able to build and provide network coverage with the assured quality offered by Alvarion and our technically-proven track record.”

The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is interoperable with the newly introduced BreezeCOMPACT base station, delivering a simple to operate, cost-effective, high capacity network solution. This solution utilizes the high antenna gain and transmit power of the BreezeMAX PRO 6000, together with the small tower footprint and high capacity of the BreezeCOMPACT to reduce the density of base stations required in a network layout. The result is a feasible deployment in rural areas that previously required a large Macro installation.

“We approached Alvarion with a need to expand quickly, reduce cost and improve flexibility of our 4G deployment,” said David Miles, Chief Network Officer at Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada's leading rural broadband provider. “By combining the BreezeCOMPACT base station with the outdoor CPE solution we will be able to provide a superior broadband solution for our customers.”

Alvarion® Delivers Connectivity for Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ Film Production

Video, voice and data services delivered to over 200 visual effects, accounting and production staff members

Tel Aviv, Israel, July 12, 2012 – Alvarion® Ltd.

In 2011, production of ‘The Avengers’ moved to Cleveland, Ohio. To ensure high quality, throughput and availability, NetX used Alvarion equipment to deliver the connectivity necessary to run production, filming, editing, visual effects, and accounting. A 100 x 100 Mbps connection was provided in less than 48 hours and the overall broadband deployment covered approximately 200 production employees, over 180 IP phones, and nearly 90 computers and servers outfitted for film operations.

“Any loss of connectivity during a large film production like ‘The Avengers’ would be crippling and could cost millions to reshoot,” Ron Deus, owner and CEO, NetX Internet. “We knew the only company we could trust to deliver the most reliable equipment for our connectivity solution was our long-term partner Alvarion.”

The Alvarion solution used for the converged data access, voice, video, and multimedia services implementation included BreezeMAX®, a carrier-class WiMAX platform. The Alvarion solution provided backhaul capabilities for the entire network used to run film crew, production, back-office and accounting applications. Alvarion’s robust carrier-grade equipment provided enough capacity to back up the video editing and visual effects connection used to transfer high-definition film between editing offices in New Mexico and New York.

“We are thrilled to have played a behind-the-scenes part in bringing the blockbuster ‘The Avengers’ film to the big screen,” said Hezi Lapid, President and CEO at Alvarion. “By working closely with NetX on the diverse needs of the film’s staff, we were able to provide a unique network solution that flawlessly met production’s high-capacity, efficiency and performance demands.”

Alvarion® and G-Net to Provide Carrier-grade Wi-Fi Connectivity to Urban and Rural areas in Georgia, Caucus

First significant win for Wi-Fi with WISP operator in this territory

Tel Aviv, Israel, July 9, 2012 – Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced that their collaboration with G-Net, a WISP Operator in Republic of Georgia, has enabled Wi-Fi connectivity in both urban and rural Georgia. Over 600 Wi-Fi base stations enabling carrier-grade Wi-Fi access are being deployed in heavily congested areas in Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi and rural villages situated nationwide. The network provides access in the 2.4 GHz band.

According to a recent research report, in 2011 mobile penetration in Georgia had reached 100% having increased sevenfold since 2003. G-Net required a network that could be quickly installed and instantly supply connectivity to all their users. Focusing on Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi, the base stations will be deployed in hot zones to cover highly congested areas such as public places, stadiums and malls. Additionally, base stations deployed in rural villages will provide high speed internet connection and services.

Alvarion partnered with BPK in order to provide carrier-grade Wi-Fi access for both a busy metropolitan area and to residents in rural Georgia. The first phase of the project is currently underway and has already enabled more than 5000 customers to be connected and have access to services that were previously unavailable. The second phase is being planned towards the end of the year.

“Alvarion is pleased to provide a new territory with the technology they need to connect both rural and urban areas,” stated Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “Our partnership with BPK has allowed us to seamlessly implement this solution for G-Net and their customers.”

“With the exponential growth of customers and data requirements, we needed a solution that could cost-effectively provide services for all connectivity needs for crowded and sparsely populated areas,” stated Paata Kikodze, General Manager, G-Net. “Alvarion’s Wi-Fi solution allowed us to give hotspot connectivity in many villages in Rural area while providing customers in outlying areas with high quality service internet and surfing capabilities.”
