magicJack Expects to Post Over $39 Million in GAAP Revenue and Over $0.70 per Share in Operating Income in Q4 2012 with GAAP Q4 and Whole Year 2012 Income to be Well Above Previous Estimates

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. and NETANYA, Israel, Dec 28, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- magicJack VocalTec, Ltd. (Nasdaq:CALL) (the "Company"), the Voice Experts and cloud communications leader that invented voice over IP (VoIP) and sold over ten million magicJacks, announces higher estimates for Q4 and full year 2012. For Q4, the Company expects to have over $0.70 per share of operating income. These estimates increased based on lower telecom expenses, higher receipts and a reduction in legal, advertising, media and other expenses. The Company had 19.3 million shares outstanding at end of Q3 2012, and cash and investments of $34.3 million. The Company has reduced share count by approximately 500,000 shares and increased cash and investments by $6 million since last quarter (Q3 2012). The Company expects to end this year with approximately 18.8 million shares outstanding and approximately $40 million in cash and investments, and continues to drastically reduce its telecom costs while increasing access charge collections.


Although the Company typically focuses on GAAP numbers, it wants its investors to clearly understand that the deferred revenue liabilities reported in Q3 2012 of $127.3 million will end up having a fraction of that amount of real cash outlay. In other words, under GAAP, deferred revenue liabilities are not cash liabilities. The Company's liquidity and cash generation has been so large because deferred revenue liabilities required only a small cash outlay, and we expect the same pro rata outlays and possibly better in the future. In the past, the Company has not broken out many non-GAAP details, but intends to include more non-GAAP details in future earnings releases. The Company will continue to inform investors of any developments that may be deemed important during its buyback program. Operating income does not include one-time charges including charitable donations and other income.

magicJack CEO Dan Borislow stated, "Our results for 2012 will exceed expectations. We leave the year with little litigation and having added important new assets. Our future goals have been established with precise plans for achieving them for 2013. I want to thank our employees for a job well done and a special shout out to Greg Wood, Peter Russo, Kirill, Dr. Y.W. Sing, Jonathan, Bin, Mary, Greg, Shelby and the Boys." The company will host a conference call today for investors at 10:00 a.m. ET.

Featured Whitepapers

Is Your Network Ready for the Internet of Everything?

The telephone industry is undergoing a dramatic transformation that began with the introduction of IP-based data networks in the early 1990s and then with Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) in the late 1990s, and it now includes all forms ofvoice, video, and messaging communications.

Building a Secure and Scalable Multimedia IP Exchange

As fixed and mobile operators increasingly move to IP-based networks, the complexity required to interconnect these networks grows dramatically. Faced with increasing competition from all corners and constant challenge to grow revenues, operators are struggling with the variety and disparities in partner and customer networks.

How Carriers Can Optimize for LTE Roaming

Connectivity between mobile network operators (MNO) in 4G LTE is much more complex than it was in legacy networks.This complexity is primarily due to the change in focus. LTE is not a voice-focused roaming environment, but rather a datacentric environment.
