I've done some lips syncing by using Face Robot and need to import it into Lightwave without using Point Oven.. Any suggestions? Isn't there any format available in Face Robot (softimage 2012) which can allow me to export Face Robot files to Lightwave with its controllers?

LW 10 (not sure about 9.6) reads Autodesk Geo Cache files (PC2 i believe), so no need for Point Oven.

Why do you want to do this without Point Oven? Its freely available within XSI as part of the standard toolset and you don't need Point Oven in Lightwave to import the resulting Mdd.
So, the only reasons I can think of is that either you dont want to Point Cache.. In which case nothing else will get a face robot animated mesh into LW, or you thought that Point Oven would cost you money?
