NeoPhotonics Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results
  • Product Revenue for 400G and above applications grew 100% year-over-year
  • 400ZR modules are in General Availability

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 3, 2021-- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading developer of silicon photonics and advanced hybrid photonic integrated circuit-based lasers, modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced financial results for its second quarter of 2021.

“Building on our strong performance in the second quarter, we see accelerating growth in the back half of the year, driven by the initial ramp of 400ZR and related products adding to our 400G+ suite,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are ramping our modules and component level products, including our Nano Tunable Laser, putting us in a good position to return to profitability,” concluded Mr. Jenks.

Second Quarter 2021 Summary

  • Revenue was $65.0 million, up 7% quarter-over-quarter and down 37% year-over-year
  • Gross margin was 15.2%, down from 21.9% in the prior quarter
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 21.7%, down from 22.4% in the prior quarter
  • Net loss per share was $0.34, compared to net loss of $0.21 per share in the prior quarter
  • Non-GAAP net loss per share was $0.22, compared to Non-GAAP net loss of $0.15 per share in the prior quarter
  • Adjusted EBITDA was negative $5.4 million, down from a negative $0.7 million in the prior quarter

Non-GAAP results in the second quarter of 2021 exclude a $3.3 million end-of-life related inventory write-down, $2.3 million of stock-based compensation and $0.4 million of accelerated depreciation, amortization and other charges. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial schedules portion at the end of this press release.

As of June 30, 2021, cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash totaled $95 million.

Non-GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA Measures vs. GAAP Financial Measures

The Company’s non-GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA measures exclude certain GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial schedules portion at the end of this press release. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP measures with the same captions and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies. As such, these non-GAAP measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures to analyze its operating performance and future prospects, develop internal budgets and financial goals, and to facilitate period-to-period comparisons. NeoPhotonics believes that these non-GAAP financial measures reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of its operations that, when viewed with its GAAP results, provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business.
