Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.
What: Sonus Networks
So what: Revenue of $67.3 million increased 8% from the year-ago quarter, with 53% of revenue coming from Bahamas Telecom. Management said that reselling a substantial amount of third-party equipment to Bahamas Telecom pressured gross margins but would not continue.
Now what: The company is restructuring, changing its go-to-market model and refreshing its senior management team. The outsized influence of a single customer on first-quarter results adds to the high level of risk in Sonus' business. While change is clearly necessary to improve financial results, it is far too soon to tell if this turnaround will really turn.
