NeoPhotonics Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results
  • Revenue of $99.1 million for the quarter, up 16% year over year
  • Raises full year outlook to 22-25% growth year on year
  • Achieves high end of profitability outlook; GAAP net income up 49% year on year

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 8, 2016-- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of advanced hybrid photonic integrated optoelectronic modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high-speed communications networks, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

“Globally, we continue to see the overall environment for 100G and beyond products very robust across both telecom and datacenter applications. In spite of PON market softness, we delivered solid financial results in the second quarter including strong profitability at 15 cents per share and cash generation of approximately $10 million. We are accelerating our high speed product growth and we have announced the end of life of our declining and lower margin PON products,” stated Tim Jenks, Chairman and CEO of NeoPhotonics. “We are experiencing an unprecedented level of demand for our 100G products, which we’re seeing as a major and sustaining mid-term trend in China as well as in the west. Given these industry trends and our strong market position, we are raising and narrowing our expected revenue growth for 2016 to a range of 22-25%,” concluded Mr. Jenks.

Second Quarter Summary

  • Revenue was $99.1 million, up $13.8 million, or 16.1%, from the second quarter of 2015, and flat from the prior quarter

  • Non-GAAP Gross margin was 29.3%, down from 32.3% in the second quarter of 2015, and down from 32.8% in the prior quarter
  • GAAP Net income was $2.7 million, up from $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2015, and up from $2.3 million in the prior quarter
  • Non-GAAP Net income was $6.9 million, up from $5.3 million in the second quarter of 2015, down slightly from $7.0 million in the prior quarter
  • GAAP Diluted earnings per share was $0.06, up from $0.05 per share in the second quarter of 2015 and up from the $0.05 per share in the prior quarter
  • Non-GAAP Diluted earnings per share was $0.15, up from $0.14 per share in the second quarter of 2015, and flat with $0.15 in the prior quarter
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $12.0 million, up from $11.4 million in the second quarter of 2015, and down slightly from $12.3 million in the prior quarter

Non-GAAP results exclude $1.3 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and $2.2 million of stock based compensation expenses and $0.8 million of transaction costs.

At June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments and restricted cash, together totaled $113.5 million, up $9.7 million from $103.8 million at March 31, 2016. Restricted cash at June 30, 2016 was $2.6 million, down $0.1 million from March 31, 2016.

Outlook for the Quarter Ending September 30, 2016

    GAAP   Non-GAAP
Revenue   $100 to $106 million
Gross Margin   28% to 30%   29% to 31%
Operating Expenses   $26 to $28 million   $23 to $25 million
Earnings per share   $0.01 to $0.09   $0.09 to $0.17
   

The Non-GAAP outlook for the third quarter of 2016 excludes the impact of expected amortization of intangibles of approximately $1.2 million and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation of approximately $2.3 million, of which $0.7 million is estimated for cost of goods sold.

The Company announced that it will end of life the sales of PON products within a year. Revenue for PON products for the last four quarters was $43.9 million and had gross margins in the range of 15-20%. For the second half of 2016, the company expects PON products revenue to be less than $10 million with gross margins in the range of 10-15%, down from revenues of $19.8 million in the first half of 2016.

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.
