Harmonic Announces Fourth Quarter and Year Ended 2012 Results
$75 Million Expansion of Share Repurchase Plan

SAN JOSE, Calif. - January 29, 2013 -- Harmonic Inc. (NASDAQ: HLIT), the
worldwide leader in video delivery infrastructure, announced today its
preliminary and unaudited results for the fourth quarter and year ended 2012.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $133.4 million, compared with
$136.7 million for the third quarter of 2012 and $143.6 million for the fourth
quarter of 2011.  For the full year 2012, net revenue was $530.5 million,
compared with $549.3 million for 2011.

The company reported GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 of $4.8
million, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared with a GAAP net loss for the third
quarter of 2012 of $8.2 million, or $(0.07) per share, and GAAP net income of
$4.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. For the
full year 2012, GAAP net loss was $10.9 million, or $(0.09) per share, compared
to net income of $8.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for 2011.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $10.8 million, or $0.09
per diluted share, compared with $8.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for
the third quarter of 2012, and $14.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for
the fourth quarter of 2011.  For the full year 2012, non-GAAP net income was
$29.3 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared with $47.5 million, or $0.41
per diluted share, for 2011. See "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and
"GAAP
to Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) Reconciliation" below.

Harmonic reported GAAP gross margins of 49% and GAAP operating margins of 2% for
the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 47% and 5%, respectively, for the same
period of 2011. Non-GAAP gross margins were 53% and non-GAAP operating margins
were 11% for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 51% and 13%, respectively,
for the same period of 2011.

As of December 31, 2012, the company had cash, cash equivalents and short-term
investments of $201.2 million, an increase from $192.0 million as of September
28, 2012.  In the fourth quarter, the company generated approximately $20.6
million of cash from operations, and used approximately $8.3 million to
repurchase 1.86 million shares of common stock under its previously announced
share repurchase program.

The company also announced it will expand its existing share repurchase program
by $75 million.

"During the fourth quarter we delivered our highest-ever revenue from
international markets and our highest-ever gross margins, benefiting from the
expansion of our global customer base and particularly strong demand for
software products and follow-on licenses," said Patrick Harshman, President and
Chief Executive Officer.  "This progress has been against a backdrop of slower
customer spending in US cable and European markets, and reflects Harmonic's
increasingly strong competitive position and expanding market share. During the
fiscal year we generated a record level of cash and initiated a stock buyback
program that we are now significantly expanding.
"Looking ahead, while we do not expect an immediate reversal of macro-economic
and customer investment trends, the recent CES event makes clear that new waves
of investment in video infrastructure are coming. Harmonic is in the pole
position to take advantage of these transformational market trends as they
unfold over the next 18 months, and we will press our competitive advantage and
continue to invest in new growth initiatives, including emerging market
expansion, Converged Cable Access Platform, new High Efficiency Video Codec
technology, and new UltraHD technology."

Business Outlook

Harmonic anticipates net revenue in the range of $115 million to $125 million
for the first quarter of 2013.  GAAP gross margins and operating expenses for
the first quarter of 2013 are expected to be in the range of 43% to 45% and $62
million to $63 million, respectively.  Non-GAAP gross margins and operating
expenses for the first quarter of 2013, which will exclude stock-based
compensation and the amortization of intangibles, are anticipated to be in the
range of 49% to 50% and $56 million to $57 million, respectively.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In establishing operating budgets, managing its business performance, and
setting internal measurement targets, the Company excludes a number of items
required by GAAP. Management believes that these accounting charges and credits,
most of which are non-cash or non-recurring in nature, are not useful in
managing its operations and business. Historically, the Company has also
publicly presented these supplemental non-GAAP measures in order to assist the
investment community to see the Company "through the eyes of management," and
thereby enhance understanding of its operating performance. The non-GAAP
measures presented here are gross margin, operating expenses, net income and net
income per share. The presentation of non-GAAP information is not intended to be
considered in isolation or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance
with GAAP, and is not necessarily comparable to non-GAAP results published by
other companies. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures
discussed in this press release to the most directly comparable historical GAAP
financial measures is included with the financial statements contained in this
presentation. The non-GAAP adjustments described below have historically been
excluded from our GAAP financial measures. These adjustments are excess
facilities and severance charges and non-cash items, such as stock-based
compensation expense, amortization of intangibles, and adjustments that
normalize the tax rate.  With respect to our expectations under "Business
Outlook" above, reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding
GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking
basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges
which are excluded from these non-GAAP measures.  The effects of stock-based
compensation expense specific to common stock options are directly impacted by
unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price.  We expect the variability of the
above charges to have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results.
