10:31 EDTGIMOGigamon slips after missed deal prompts lower Q1 outlook
Shares of Gigamon (GIMO), which offers solutions to control and manage network traffic, are slipping after the company lowered its first quarter revenue outlook based on the fall-out of a large deal with an existing customer. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Gigamon reduced its first quarter revenue view to $31M-$31.5M from its previous outlook of $34M-$35M. Prior to the company's warning, analysts consensus revenue estimate was $34.8M. The company attributed the lowered revenue to one expected large transaction from an existing customer in EMEA that did not transpire. Other transactions that were anticipated to close late in the quarter slipped into the second quarter, Gigamon noted, adding that these factors also affected the company's first quarter gross margin outlook. Gigamon pegged its Q1 gross margins to be approximately 71%-72%, versus prior guidance of 78%-79%. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, Pacific Crest downgraded Gigamon to Sector Perform from Outperform. Analyst Josh Beck said that the company's efforts to build out its international sales force are taking longer than the firm would have expected. Beck added that it is unclear whether the margin depression is a one-time event or a trend, adding that sustained compression would alter the firm's view of the company's competitive positioning. Meanwhile, Goldman Sachs said that it feels that Gigamon's share weakness due to the shortfall of one large deal is overdone. The firm believes that Gigamon does not feel the deal was lost to a competitor and is on indefinite postponement. Goldman lowered its price target on Gigamon to $32 from $43, but maintains its Buy rating on the stock, which it noted trades at a discount to peers. PRICE ACTION: During morning trading, shares of Gigamon fell over 32% to $17.77.

16:17 EDTGIMOGigamon lowers Q1 revenue view to $31M-$31.5M from prior $34M-$35M
Q1 consensus $34.81M. Gigamon expects revenue for the first quarter to be approximately $31M-$31.5M, below the company's previously stated guidance of $ 34M-$35M. The revenue shortfall was primarily attributable to one expected large transaction from an existing customer in EMEA that did not materialize. In addition, certain other transactions that were expected to close late in the quarter slipped into the second quarter. GAAP gross margins are expected to be in the range of 70%-71%. Non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be approximately 71%-72%, compared to guidance of 78%-79%. The lower gross margins are due to an excess inventory charge of approximately $2.3M in the quarter related to the transaction in EMEA that did not materialize and other changes in our product mix. Without the charge, GAAP gross margins would have been approximately 77%-78% and non-GAAP gross margins would have been approximately 78%-79% as discount trends fell within historical norms. "While we are disappointed in these preliminary results, we remain confident in our business strategy and the market opportunity," said Paul Hooper, the company's CEO. "We did not see any material change within the competitive landscape during the first quarter and we are encouraged by our initial assessment of our second quarter pipeline."
