Management Comment

Erez Antebi, President & CEO of Allot, commented: "Our strong growth continues, and we are very much on track with our plans. In line with our strategy, we have recently successfully closed a couple of security deals in which we provide products and support and we share in the ongoing revenue with the CSP as the services gain increased traction with end users. I am confident in our direction.  As we continue to improve our execution, I am very encouraged to see a growing market acceptance supporting our belief that CSPs have a big opportunity in delivering secure connectivity to the mass market.

Continued Mr. Antebi: "Our DPI business is showing strength as we continue to win new deals and new accounts. Overall, the value of the new deals we won during the first three quarters of 2018 is approximately double of that which we won during all of 2017. These new customers are creating a strong foundation for sustainable growth."

Q3 2018 Financial Results Summary

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2018 were $24.2 million, an improvement of 16% compared to $20.9 million in the third quarter of 2017. Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, were $69.0 million compared to $58.8 million during the same period in 2017, an increase of 17%.

Gross profit on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 was $16.8 million (gross margin of 69.4%), a 29% improvement compared with $13.0 million (gross margin of 62.4%) in the third quarter of 2017.

Gross profit on a non-GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 was $17.1 million (gross margin of 70.7%), a 20% improvement compared with $14.2 million (gross margin of 68.2%) in the third quarter of 2017. The higher level of gross margin was driven by a favorable sales mix delivered in the quarter.

Net loss on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of 2018 was $2.5 million, or $0.07 per basic share, an improvement compared with a net loss of $4.6 million, or $0.14 per basic share, in the third quarter of 2017.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation:

The difference between GAAP and non-GAAP revenues is related to the acquisitions made by the Company and represents revenues adjusted for the impact of the fair value adjustment to acquired deferred revenue related to purchase accounting. Non-GAAP net income is defined as GAAP net income after including deferred revenues related to the fair value adjustment resulting from purchase accounting and excluding stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, deferred tax asset adjustment, restructuring expenses, changes in taxes related items and other acquisition-related expenses.

These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for, comparable GAAP measures. The non-GAAP results and a full reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results is provided in the accompanying Table 2. The Company provides these non-GAAP financial measures because it believes they present a better measure of the Company's core business and management uses the non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate the Company's ongoing performance. Accordingly, the Company believes they are useful to investors in enhancing an understanding of the Company's operating performance.
