Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted and harmed, and may continue to disrupt and harm, our business, financial condition and operating results. We are unable to predict the extent to which the pandemic and related impacts will continue to adversely impact our business, financial condition and operating results and the achievement of our strategic objectives.
  • We depend on cable, satellite and telco, and broadcast and media industry spending for our revenue and any material decrease or delay in spending in any of these industries would negatively impact our operating results, financial condition and cash flows.
  • The loss of one or more of our key customers, a failure to continue diversifying our customer base, or a decrease in the number of larger transactions could harm our business and our operating results.
  • We need to develop and introduce new and enhanced products and solutions in a timely manner to meet the needs of our customers and to remain competitive.
  • The markets in which we operate are intensely competitive.
  • Our future growth depends on a number of video and broadband industry trends.
  • Our operating results are likely to fluctuate significantly and, as a result, may fail to meet or exceed the expectations of securities analysts or investors, causing our stock price to decline.
  • We purchase several key components, subassemblies and modules used in the manufacture or integration of our products from sole or limited sources, and we rely on contract manufacturers and other subcontractors.
  • We rely on resellers, value-added resellers and systems integrators for a significant portion of our revenue, and disruptions to, or our failure to develop and manage our relationships with these customers or the processes and procedures that support them could adversely affect our business.
  • We may not be able to effectively manage our operations.
  • We face risks associated with having outsourced engineering resources located in Ukraine.
  • We face risks associated with having facilities and employees located in Israel.
  • In order to manage our growth, we must be successful in addressing management succession issues and attracting and retaining qualified personnel.
  • Our products include third-party technology and intellectual property, and our inability to acquire new technologies or use third-party technology in the future could harm our business.
  • Cybersecurity incidents, including data security breaches or computer viruses, could harm our business by disrupting our business operations, compromising our products and services, damaging our reputation or exposing us to liability.
  • Our operating results could be adversely affected by natural disasters affecting us or impacting our third-party manufacturers, suppliers, resellers or customers.
  • We may need additional capital in the future and may not be able to secure adequate funds at all or on terms acceptable to us.
  • Servicing our debt requires a significant amount of cash, and we may not have sufficient cash flow from our business to pay our substantial debt.
  • Despite our current debt levels, we may still incur substantially more debt or take other actions which would intensify the risks discussed above.
  • The conditional conversion feature of the Notes, if triggered, may adversely affect our financial condition and operating results.
  • The accounting method for convertible debt securities that may be settled in cash, such as the Notes, could have a material effect on our reported financial results.
  • We have made, and may continue to make, acquisitions, and any acquisition could disrupt our operations, cause dilution to our stockholders and materially and adversely affect our business, operating results, cash flows and financial condition.
  • We may sell one or more of our product lines, from time to time, as a result of our evaluation of our products and markets, and any such divestiture could adversely affect our continuing business and our expenses, revenues, results of operation, cash flows and financial position.
  • The nature of our business requires the application of complex revenue and expense recognition rules and the current legislative and regulatory environment affecting generally accepted accounting principles is uncertain. Significant changes in current principles could affect our financial statements going forward and changes in financial accounting standards or practices may cause adverse, unexpected financial reporting fluctuations and harm our operating results.
  • Fluctuations in our future effective tax rates could affect our future operating results, financial condition and cash flows.
  • We or our customers may face intellectual property infringement claims from third parties.
  • We may be the subject of litigation which, if adversely determined, could harm our business and operating results.
  • Our failure to adequately protect our proprietary rights and data may adversely affect us.
  • Our use of open source software in some of our products may expose us to certain risks.
  • We are subject to import and export control and trade and economic sanction laws and regulations that could subject us to liability or impair our ability to compete in international markets.
  • Our business and industry are subject to various laws and regulations that could adversely affect our business, operating results, cash flows and financial condition.
  • We depend significantly on our international revenue and are subject to the risks associated with international operations, including those of our resellers, contract manufacturers and outsourcing partners, which may negatively affect our operating results.
  • Some anti-takeover provisions contained in our certificate of incorporation and bylaws, as well as provisions of Delaware law, could impair a takeover attempt.
  • Our common stock price may be extremely volatile, and the value of an investment in our stock may decline.
