A10 Networks (NYSE: ATEN), a leading provider of secure application solutions and services, today announced that, based on preliminary data, it expects to report revenue results for the fourth quarter of 2019 between $59 million and $60 million, above the previous guidance range of $55 million to $59 million. The Company has not yet completed the close of the fourth quarter nor commenced the audit of its 2019 financial results, and thus the foregoing numbers may be subject to adjustment.
“I am excited by the overall opportunity for A10 investors, customers and employees. We believe our strong customer engagement and exciting product roadmap positions us well for the future needs of the industry. Looking ahead, we remain focused on driving improved financial performance through top-line growth and operational excellence,” said Dhrupad Trivedi, CEO of A10 Networks.
A10 also announced today that EVP of Sales, Chris White, informed the Company on January 6, 2020 that he is voluntarily resigning from his position, effective January 17, 2020. Mr. White’s departure is not the result of any disagreement with the Company regarding its operations, policies or practice. The Company has initiated a search to replace Mr. White. CEO Dhrupad Trivedi will oversee the sales organization on an interim basis. Mr. Trivedi said, “We thank Chris White for his leadership and many contributions to A10, and wish him the best in the next chapter in his career.”
