ACTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SeaChange International, Inc. (NAS: SEAC) , a leading global multi-screen video software innovator, today reported revenue of $39.2 million and non-GAAP operating income of $2.9 million or $0.09 per share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013.

The Company's U.S. GAAP third quarter fiscal 2013 results include non-recurring charges which consisted primarily of severance and restructuring charges while the third quarter fiscal 2012 results had non-recurring charges related to professional fees associated with strategic alternatives and earn-out costs from acquisitions.

"I'm very pleased with our third quarter results, which came in at the high end of our revenue guidance and significantly exceeded our non-GAAP operating income guidance," said Raghu Rau, Chief Executive Officer, SeaChange. "The outperformance was driven by increased revenue from new products and continued execution on our cost reduction efforts."

Commenting on outlook, Rau stated, "Based on the momentum we are seeing in our business, we are increasing our full year fiscal 2013 revenue and earnings guidance. We anticipate that our full year fiscal 2013 revenue will be in the range of $155 million to $159 million and our non-GAAP operating income will be in the range of $0.38 to $0.41 per share."

The Company ended the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $100.0 million compared to $93.8 million at the end of January 31, 2012.
