SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2012-- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

“We are very pleased with our performance for the second quarter, which exceeded our financial projections for revenue, gross margin and profitability,” said Tim Jenks, Chairman, President and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We continued to see positive growth and demand drivers for our Speed and Agility products, which include 100G and coherent technologies, and Access products, which support fiber-to-the-home deployments around the globe.”

Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2012

  • Revenue was $63.0 million, up $8.8 million, or 16%, from the prior quarter & up $12.0 million, or 24%, from the second quarter 2011
  • Gross margin was 24.8%, up from 21.0% in the prior quarter & compares to 26.7% in the second quarter 2011
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 26.5%, up from 23.9% in the prior quarter & 26.4% in the second quarter 2011
  • Loss from continuing operations was $3.7 million, an improvement of $8.1 million, or 69%, from the prior quarter and compares to income of $13.7 million in the second quarter 2011
  • Non-GAAP loss from continuing operations was $1.7 million, an improvement of $3.7 million, or 68%, from the prior quarter and compares to income of $0.2 million in the second quarter 2011
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations was $0.13, an improvement from a loss of $0.47 in the prior quarter & compares to income of $0.54 in the second quarter 2011

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $1.8 million, up from a loss of $2.4 million in the prior quarter & compares to adjusted EBITDA of $3.1 million in the second quarter 2011.

Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was $107.1 million at the end of the second quarter 2012, up from $83.8 million in the prior quarter, primarily reflecting the sale of Common Stock in a private placement transaction, partially offset by growth in accounts receivable and scheduled repayment of notes payable and debt.

A reconciliation of GAAP financial measures to Non-GAAP financial measures is included at the end of this press release. See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information” later in this press release for a description of these Non-GAAP financial measures.

Outlook for the Quarter Ending September 30, 2012

The company’s current expectation for the third quarter 2012 is:

  • Revenue in the range of $60 million to $66 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 26% to 28%, primarily depending on volume and product mix
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations in the range of $0.12 to $0.17 & Non-GAAP diluted loss per share from continuing operations in the range of $0.02 to $0.10.

The Non-GAAP outlook excludes the expected amortization of intangibles and other assets of approximately $1.6 million and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation of approximately $2.0 million, of which $1.2 million is estimated to relate to gross margin.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The company provides Non-GAAP gross margin, Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP diluted net income per share and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental information. In computing certain of these Non-GAAP financial measures, the company excludes certain items included under GAAP, including the amortization of purchased intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related costs, restructuring charges, the fair value adjustment to contingent consideration, gain on sale of shares of an unconsolidated investee, and the related tax effects. In computing adjusted EBITDA, the company also excludes interest income and expense, provision for income taxes and depreciation expense.

Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the operating performance of the business and aid in the period-to-period comparability. Management also uses the Non-GAAP financial measures for planning and forecasting and measuring results against its forecast. Using several measures to evaluate the business allows the company and investors to assess the company’s relative performance and ultimately monitor the company’s capacity to generate returns for its stockholders. The Non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the company’s industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The company’s Non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to the financial measures derived in accordance with GAAP. The company does not consider these Non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.
