Rosh Ha’ain, Israel, May 01, 2023  - Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the global innovator and leading solutions provider of 5G wireless transport, today reported its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023.

  • Operating income of $4.7 million on a GAAP basis, or $5.9 million on a non-GAAP basis
  • EPS of $0.02 per diluted share on a GAAP basis, or $0.04 per diluted share on a non-GAAP basis


Q1 2023 Business Highlights:

  • Book-to-bill above 1 on a quarterly and trailing 12-month basis
  • Strong bookings in Q1, particularly in North America and India
  • North America:
    • Strongest region for Q1 revenue
    • Q1 2023 bookings increased sequentially and year-over-year, reflecting less friction in the supply chain and strong demand
  • India:
    • Strongest region in terms of Q1 bookings, second-strongest region in terms of Q1 revenue

Doron Arazi, CEO, commented: “Ceragon delivered double-digit revenue growth, margin expansion, and solid profitability in the first quarter of 2023. Our solutions are benefiting from strong demand and the supply chain is normalizing both in terms of product availability and costs. The result is concrete evidence that our improved execution is delivering the intended improvements in our financial results. Importantly, we have not seen signs of a slowdown in spending, softness or pressures that others across the broader industry have reported.”

“While we are cognizant of the macro environment, the trends we are seeing across our business are encouraging,” continued Mr. Arazi. “During the first quarter we recorded bookings that exceeded our revenue, giving us greater confidence that we are in position to achieve our full-year guidance. As we move through the year and gain greater visibility into customer buying patterns, we may consider upgrading our outlook.”
