"Our first quarter results reflect our continued focus on driving revenue growth and expanding operating margins," said Juniper Networks CFO Robyn Denholm. "As expected, we saw continued strong broad based demand from US service providers and early indications of improving demand from EMEA service providers. I am pleased with the team's efforts and commitment to gaining efficiencies throughout the company and executing our strategy."
Other Financial Highlights
Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of March 31, 2013 were $3,672 million, compared to $3,837 million as of December 31, 2012 and $4,216 million as of March 31, 2012.
Juniper's net cash outflow from operations for the first quarter of 2013 was ($9) million, compared to net cash provided by operations of $155 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, and $102 million in the first quarter of 2012. The cash outflow in the quarter was primarily due to a sequential increase in accounts receivable, annual payments for incentive compensation, the timing of payments to our supply chain and lower net income. In Q2, the Company expects to return to its historical pattern of strong positive cash flows.
Days sales outstanding in accounts receivable ("DSO") was 45 days in the first quarter of 2013, compared to 35 days in the prior quarter and 39 days in the first quarter of 2012.
For the first quarter, Juniper repurchased 6.2 million shares at an average share price of $20.99 per share for a total of $130 million.
Capital expenditures, as well as depreciation and amortization of intangible assets expense during the first quarter of 2013 were $72 million and $52 million, respectively.
Juniper's outlook for the June quarter reflects its expectation that it will see continued weakness in the enterprise customer spending environment. In the service provider market, the Company expects to see a continuation of US service provider capital spending as well as moderately improved demand trends in EMEA. Juniper's new products continue to build momentum, especially in routing, and the Company remains focused on disciplined operational execution while driving revenue growth.
