The company missed the analysts' consensus of earnings per share of $0.16 on $29.8 million revenue.
Full-year revenue rose to $107.1 million from $77.8 million in 2011.

Upon paying the settlement during the first quarter of 2013, Allot will have no future royalty obligations on product sales.

With the completion of two acquisitions during the year, we now offer a comprehensive video solution to empower our customers to optimize and monetize on Over the Top (OTT) delivery of video based content and applications.
