Oclaro Announces Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

PR Newswire

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Oclaro, Inc. (NASDAQ:OCLR), a leading provider and innovator of optical communications solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2018, which ended March 31, 2018. Oclaro will not hold an earnings call, nor provide forward guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2018, due to the previously announced proposed acquisition of Oclaro by Lumentum Holdings Inc.

"I am very pleased with the results that the Oclaro team delivered for our third fiscal quarter. Our revenue of $127 million, which was at the high end of our guidance, was driven by a record revenue quarter for our CFP2-ACO product family and laser chip business. The strong sales mix resulted in non-GAAP gross margin of 37 percent, and non-GAAP operating income of $18 million, which exceeded our guidance, and marked the eighth consecutive quarter of double digit operating income percentage," said Greg Dougherty, CEO of Oclaro.

"As a result of the U.S. Department of Commerce recently re-imposing export sanctions on ZTE, we have temporarily suspended all shipments to, and activities with, ZTE. Despite the loss of ZTE as a greater than 10 percent customer for an indefinite period, we continue to believe our solid financial model and tight expense controls, when coupled with our highly differentiated products, will allow us to continue to demonstrate strong financial performance," said Mr. Dougherty.

Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2018

There are a number of important factors that could cause our actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including (i) our dependence on a limited number of customers for a significant percentage of our revenues, (ii) the impact on our business, financial condition and results of operations of the U.S. Department of Commerce changing and reactivating its previous denial order relating to ZTE, (iii) the risk that our pending merger with Lumentum Holdings Inc. does not close, due to the failure of one or more conditions to closing, (iv) uncertainty as to the market value of the Lumentum merger consideration to be paid in the merger, (v) the risk that required governmental or Oclaro stockholder approvals of the merger (including China antitrust approval) will not be obtained or that such approvals will be delayed beyond current expectations, (vi) the risk of litigation in respect of either Oclaro or Lumentum or the merger, (vii) disruption from the merger making it more difficult to maintain our customer, supplier, key personnel and other strategic relationships, (viii) competition and pricing pressure, (ix) the absence of long-term purchase commitments from many of our long-term customers, (x) our ability to effectively manage our inventory, (xi) our ability to meet or exceed our gross margin expectations, (xii) our ability to timely develop, commercialize and ramp the production of new products to customer required volumes, (xiii) the effects of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, (xiv) our ability to respond to evolving technologies, customer requirements and demands, and product design challenges, (xv) potential operating or reporting disruptions that could result from the implementation of our new enterprise resource planning system, (xvi) our manufacturing yields, (xvii) our ability to conclude agreements with our customers on favorable terms, (xviii) the risks associated with delays, disruptions or quality control problems in manufacturing, (xix) fluctuations in our revenues, growth rates and operating results, (xx) changes in our effective tax rates or outcomes of tax audits or similar proceedings, (xxi) our ability to obtain governmental licenses and approvals for international trading activities or technology transfers, including export licenses, (xxii) our dependence on a limited number of suppliers and key contract manufacturers, (xxiii) 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, (xxiv) our ability to protect our intellectual property rights, (xxv) the risks associated with our international operations, and (xxvi) other factors described under the caption "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in the documents we periodically file 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 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. Management excludes certain items from its view of Oclaro's core operating performance, such as impairment charges, deferred income taxes, restructuring and severance programs, costs relating to specific major projects (such as acquisitions), non-cash compensation related to stock and options, impairment of fixed assets and inventory and related expenses, certain other income and expense items, and the tax effects thereof. Management does not believe these items are reflective of Oclaro's ongoing core operating performance 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.
