F5 Announces Record Second Quarter
Results

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 25, 2000--F5 Networks,
Inc. (Nasdaq:FFIV - news), the leading provider of integrated
content delivery and traffic management solutions that improve the availability and scalability of
Internet infrastructure, today announced results for the second quarter of fiscal 2000, which ended
March 31, 2000.

Second Quarter Highlights:

    Year-to-date net revenue increased 562 percent over the prior year and 23 percent sequentially
    to $23.6 million for the second quarter.
    Net income was $4.1 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $(3.0) million
    or $(0.45) per diluted share for the second quarter of 1999.
    Cash flow from operations totaled $2.8 million in the quarter, $5.8 million year-to-date
    Announced an OEM agreement with Dell Computer to sell F5's products

``Our second quarter results demonstrate that we are on track for a solid performance in 2000,'' said
Jeffrey S. Hussey, chairman, president and chief executive officer of F5 Networks. ``We continue to
execute on our strategies of investing in technology to anticipate our customers' needs and to grow our
customer base, expanding sales and marketing efforts globally, building on and enhancing our
relationships with strategic partners, leveraging the F5 brand and evaluating strategic acquisitions.''

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2000 totaled $23.6 million, up 527 percent from $3.8
million in the prior year second quarter, and up 23 percent from the first quarter. Net revenue growth

was driven by increased sales of all of the company's products, to both new and existing customers,
and by a significant increase in service revenue and sales internationally.

Net income was $4.1 million, or $.18 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2000 compared
to a loss of $(3.0) million, or $(0.45) per share, in the prior-year second quarter. For the fiscal year to
date, net revenue totaled $42.8 million, up 562 percent from the first six months of fiscal 1999. Net
income for the first six months of fiscal 2000 totaled $8.4 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared
to $(5.2) million, or $(0.82) per diluted share in the prior-year same period.

``Sales growth momentum and strong margins have enabled F5 to sustain profitability despite a
continuing ramp-up in infrastructure to support our growth,'' added Mr. Hussey. ``We expect that F5
will deliver sequential quarterly sales growth in the low to mid teens, and continue to post profits and
positive cash flow in the second half of fiscal 2000.''

On April 5, 2000, F5 announced a major OEM agreement with server manufacturer Dell Computer to
bring to market F5 Networks' suite of products, commencing with the Company's BIG-IP software, on
Dell's PowerApp appliance server. This appliance server product will be targeted for service providers,
dot-coms, brick-to-click businesses and other organizations building out their Internet infrastructure.

During the second quarter, F5 announced that Carlton G. Amdahl was named Chief Technical Officer.
Mr. Amdahl brings more than 20 years of experience as a senior executive and consultant in the
computer and networking industry and will be instrumental in driving F5's technology to the next level.

ich gebe keine her, sonder kauf eher, das gibt einen netten day trade!

somebody said und er/sie hat recht:

That's 87% for the year (23*15*15*15)

    People are expecting to much. G&A and Selling expense went up 3Mil for the quarter. (probably some bonus payments or
    one time events in there) With out the added 3mil you could add about .15c to earnings. (to about .33c for the quarter)
    They should make over a $1 a share this year. I guess I will buy more tomorrow. I will take this kind of growth, too bad the
    market looks at it in a negative light.

mal davon abgesehen, kann man p/e mit whisper daten von .41c$ (warum nicht gleich 2$) hochrechnen und kommt dann bald auf einstellige p/e schon fuer dieses jahr!

Die 0,18$ schienen sich mit den Erwartungen der Analysten zu decken. Nur wüsste ich gerne wer überhaupt diese
Flüsterschätzungen macht: Wenn´s wirklich ein Haufen vollbescheuerter Kleinaktionäre, von BWL null Ahnung, ist, der auf www.whispernumbers.com/ seinen Senf dazugibt und dann
der Durchschnitt aus 5 Teilnehmern gebildet wird ist das Ergebnis nicht zu gebrauchen. Dass sich daran dann noch andere Vollidioten orientieren hat was Schildbürgerhaftes an sich.

Diese Leute scheinen von betriebswirtschaftlichen internen Prozessen rein gar nichts zu wissen: wie schaffte ein Unternehmen  eine Umsatzwachstum von 613% im 1.Q und 527% im 2,Q , Steigerung 2. Q zum 1.Q von 24% ??
Bestimmt nicht vom Füße auf den Tisch legen und den Dingen seinen eigenen Lauf nehmen lassen, sondern auch durch Neuinvestitionen. Die dürften bei F5 in größerem Umfang getätigt worden sein, bedenkt man nur, dass das Umsatzwachstum im Produktbereich bei 489% liegt.

Dass der Gewinn dann nicht direkt proportional zum Umsatz steigt, und so haben die Flüsterer geschätz: 0,18*1,24=0,2232, sollte niemanden überraschen.

13:03 ET F5 Networks (FFIV) 41 13/16 -16 57/64: Sharp decline in stock being attributed to the company's guidance toward a higher tax rate of 36%; though Robertson Stephens revises revenue and pre-tax EPS estimates higher; after-tax EPS estimates for FY00 and FY01 are cut to $0.71 and $0.91 from $0.77 and $1.28, respectively.

Werde alle meine F5´s demnächst abstoßen und das Kapitel beenden. Was hab ich mit der Aktie gezittert und gehofft und es einfach nicht fassen können...............jetzt stürtzt sich die blutgierige Nasdaq-Meute auf den toten Kadaver ! -28%

Der Chart von f5 scheint im Bereich von 40$ ein Doppelbottom auszubilden. Ein erneutes Unterschreiten der Marke von 40 $ erscheint eher als unwahrscheinlich.
Wegen einer möglicherweise höheren Steuerquote für die anstehenden Quartale Q3 und Q4 werden die Gewinnerwartungen der Analysten etwas zurückgenommen.

F5 ist weiterhin ein Kauf.
In den vergangenen Tagen konnte f5 auf zahlreiche neue Kooperationen verweisen (insbes. Dell (vertiefte Koop) und dem Triumvirat um das neu gebündelte Best-Offer Angebot.
f5 hat stark in Marketing investiert und hat, wie oben nachzulesen ist, angekündigt auch weiterhin im mittleren zweistelligen Bereich von Quartal zu Quartal zu wachsen.
Unter der Annahme die Wachstumsrate liegt weiterhin bei 20% ergibt sich folgende Gewinnreihe für die anstehenden Quartale:

2000 Q2 0.18 $ pro Aktie
2000 Q3 0.22 $
2000 Q4 0.26 $

2001 Q1 0.31 $
2001 Q2 0.37 $
2001 Q3 0.45 $
2001 Q4 0.54 $

insgesamt Ergebnis 2001: 1.67 $ pro Aktie   bei 50 $ entspricht KGV von 30!

Das Management ist erste Sahne von F5
1. Die Internationalisierungsstrategie steht, man ist in Europa und Asien (China) präsent (hier dürfte sich ein enormes Wachstumspotential für f5 ergeben, da diese Internetmärkte noch relativ jung sind und in der Entwicklung dem Heimatmarkt USA um 2-3 Jahre hinterherhinken.
2. Das bisherige Wachstum ist rein organisch, d.h. die Firma wuchs bisher nur aus eigener Kraft (keine Firmenzukäufe)
3. Das Management setzt auf Markt- und Gewinnwachstum!
4. Liquidität: 60.000.000 $, Börsenwert der Gesellschaft: 845.000.000 $!!!!
5. Bei Gewinnwachstumsraten von 100 % p.a. ist ein KGV von ca. 30 auf Basis des zu erwartenden 2001 Ergebnisses sehr niedrig!

6. Heute wurden zum ersten Mal mehr als 5.000.000 Aktien an Nasdaq gehandelt. Sonst ca. 1.000.000 Stück Handelsvolumen!

7. Die Foschungsausgaben sind weiterhin hoch bzw. solide. Wurden um 100% gesteigert!

8. Bisher hat das Management stets überzeugt. Leider hat es die Börse und damit der Anleger nicht bzw. noch nicht honoriert.

Wer will kauft, wer nicht will, kauft nicht!

Spätestens im kommenden Jahr kann die Börse die guten Zahlen von F5 nicht länger ignorieren, weil dann könnte das KGV für 2002 bei ca. 20-15 liegen. Das sind Regionen, in die Internetwerte nicht einzuordnen sind.

F5 Networks slipped 14 37/64, or 25%, to 41 1/8 on Nasdaq. F5 Networks
                   late Tuesday reported second-quarter profits of $4.1 million, or 18 cents a
                   diluted share, in line with analysts' estimates. Bearish investors, however, may
                   have been confused by a statement in F5's press release predicting sequential
                   quarterly sales growth in the "low to mid teens," said Bear Stearns & Co.
                   associate Olivia Golden.
