F5 Posts Revenue of $365.5 Million, Down 4%

F5 Networks reported revenue of $350.2 million for its second quarter of fiscal 2013, down four percent from $365.5 million in the prior quarter and up three percent from $339.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  GAAP net income was $63.4 million ($0.80 per diluted share) compared to $69.5 million ($0.88 per diluted share) in the first quarter of 2013 and $68.6 million ($0.86 per diluted share) in the second quarter a year ago.

“As we indicated in our announcement of preliminary results on April 4, service provider revenues for the second quarter came in significantly below our expectations,” said John McAdam, F5 president and chief executive officer.  “We believe this was primarily due to project delays, which caused customers to postpone orders that we had expected to close during the quarter. The weakness in sales to service providers was especially pronounced in North America. In addition, sales to the Federal government were also below our internal forecast as a consequence of continuing uncertainty over the impact of sequestration and other efforts to reduce Federal spending.
