  • Diluted net income/loss per share in the range of a loss of 6 cents to earnings of 2 cents, and

The Non-GAAP outlook for the third quarter of 2015 excludes the expected amortization of intangibles and other assets of approximately $1.4 million and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation of approximately $1.9 million, of which $0.4 million is estimated for cost of goods sold.

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

The Company’s Non-GAAP and Adjusted EBITDA measures exclude certain GAAP financial measures, and 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.
