Revenue Grows for the Fourth Consecutive Quarter; Up 52 Percent from Q4 FY15

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (Nasdaq: OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced the financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016, which ended July 2, 2016.

"The results we achieved in the fourth quarter represent an all-time Oclaro record for gross margin and operating income. Our excellent performance was driven by the strength of our 100G product line revenues, which grew 36 percent sequentially, including a significant contribution from our CFP2-ACO product line," said Greg Dougherty, Chief Executive Officer, Oclaro. "I am very pleased with our performance and annual results for the past year, which reflect the progress that we have made. Our annual revenue grew by 20 percent when compared with fiscal year 2015, and we achieved an annual operating profit. Entering fiscal 2017, we are well positioned for ongoing revenue growth as our product mix continues to shift towards 100G for both our client- and line-side businesses. I am proud of what the Oclaro team has accomplished and look forward to another successful year in fiscal 2017."

Safe Harbor Statement

This press release, in association with Oclaro's fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 financial results conference call, contains statements about management's future expectations, plans or prospects of Oclaro and its business, and together with the assumptions underlying these statements, constitute forward-looking statements for the purposes of the safe harbor provisions of The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements include statements concerning (i) financial guidance for the fiscal quarter ending October 1, 2016 regarding revenues, non-GAAP gross margin, and non-GAAP operating income, (ii) the growth of Oclaro's 100G product revenues, and (iii) Oclaro's future financial performance and operating prospects. Such statements can be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts and may contain words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "will," "should," "outlook," "could," "target," "model," "objective," and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operations or financial performance. There are a number of important factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including (i) our ability to timely develop, commercialize and ramp the production of new products to customer required volumes, (ii) our ability to respond to evolving technologies, customer requirements and demands, and product design challenges, (iii) our dependence on a limited number of customers for a significant percentage of our revenues, (iv) our manufacturing yields, (v) our ability to effectively manage our inventory, (vi) the risks associated with delays, disruptions or quality control problems in manufacturing, (vii) our ability to obtain governmental licenses and approvals for international trading activities or technology transfers, including export licenses, (viii) competition and pricing pressure, (ix) our ability to meet or exceed our gross margin expectations, (x) our ability to continue increasing the percentage of sales associated with our new products, (xi) the absence of long-term purchase commitments from the majority of our long-term customers, (xii) the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, (xiii) our dependence on a limited number of suppliers and key contract manufacturers, (xiv) our ability to have our manufacturing lines qualified by our customers, (xv) our ability to attract and retain key personnel, (xvi) our ability to conclude agreements with our customers on favorable terms, (xvii) the impact of financial market and general economic conditions in the industries in which we operate and any resulting reduction in demand for our products, (xviii) our ability to maintain or increase our cash reserves and obtain debt or equity-based financing on acceptable terms or at all, (xix) our ability to effectively compete with companies that have greater name recognition, broader customer relationships and substantially greater financial, technical and marketing resources, (xx) our ability to service and repay our outstanding indebtedness pursuant to the terms of the applicable agreements, (xxi) our ability to further reduce costs and operating expenses, (xxii) the risks associated with our international operations, (xxiii) the outcome of tax audits or similar proceedings, (xxiv) the outcome of pending litigation against us, and (xxv) other factors described in Oclaro's most recent annual report on Form 10-K, quarterly report on Form 10-Q and other documents it periodically files with the SEC.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Oclaro provides certain supplemental non-GAAP financial measures to its investors as a complement to the most comparable GAAP measures. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP gross margin rate is gross margin rate. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP operating income/loss is operating income/loss. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to Adjusted EBITDA is GAAP net income/loss. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP net income/loss is net income/loss. An explanation and reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP information is set forth below.

Oclaro believes that providing these non-GAAP measures to its investors, in addition to corresponding income statement measures, provides investors the benefit of viewing Oclaro's performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and evaluating how Oclaro's "core operating performance" and its results of operations may look in the future. Oclaro defines "core operating performance" as its ongoing performance in the ordinary course of its operations. Items that are non-recurring or do not involve cash expenditures, such as impairment charges, income taxes, restructuring and severance programs, costs relating to specific major projects (such as acquisitions), non-cash compensation related to stock and options and certain income, purchase accounting adjustments related to the fair market value of acquired inventories, costs to outsource our back-end manufacturing activities, impairment of fixed assets and inventory and related expenses, are not included in Oclaro's view of "core operating performance." Management does not believe these items are reflective of Oclaro's ongoing core operations and accordingly excludes those items from non-GAAP gross margin rate, non-GAAP operating income/loss, non-GAAP net income/loss and Adjusted EBITDA. Additionally, each non-GAAP measure has historically been presented by Oclaro as a complement to its most comparable GAAP measure, and Oclaro believes that the continuation of this practice increases the consistency and comparability of Oclaro's earnings releases.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as net income/loss excluding the impact of income taxes, net interest income/expense, depreciation and amortization, net gains/losses on foreign currency transactions, as well as restructuring, acquisition and related costs, non-cash compensation related to stock and options, and other unusual one-time charges, specifically identified in the non-GAAP reconciliation schedules set forth below. Oclaro uses Adjusted EBITDA in evaluating Oclaro's historical and prospective cash usage, as well as its cash usage relative to its competitors. Specifically, management uses this non-GAAP measure to further understand and analyze the cash used in/generated from Oclaro's core operations. Oclaro believes that by excluding these non-cash and non-recurring charges, more accurate expectations of its future cash needs can be assessed in addition to providing a better understanding of the actual cash used in or generated from core operations for the periods presented. Oclaro further believes that providing this information allows Oclaro's investors greater transparency and a better understanding of Oclaro's core cash position.
