Finisar Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2013 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/13 -- Finisar Corporation (NASDAQ: FNSR), a global technology leader for subsystems and components for fiber optic communications, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended April 28, 2013.

COMMENTARY

"I am pleased to report fiscal fourth quarter revenues of $243.4 million, which is $5.1 million, or 2.1%, greater than the prior quarter. Our growth in revenues came primarily from sales of 10G and 100G Ethernet transceivers and transponders for datacom applications. Our favorable product mix in the quarter enabled us to achieve gross margin and earnings per diluted share that exceeded our guidance range," said Jerry Rawls, Finisar's executive Chairman of the Board.

"During the quarter, we continued to invest significantly in technology and product development and made substantial progress on a number of new products for our datacom and telecom products lines, including our next generation 100G CFP2 transceiver, 12x25G optical engine and new generation dual wavelength selective switch product family," said Eitan Gertel, Finisar's Chief Executive Officer.

(a) In evaluating the operating performance of Finisar's business, Finisar management utilizes financial measures that exclude certain charges and credits required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, that are considered by management to be outside Finisar's core operating results. A reconciliation of Finisar's non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures, as well as additional related information, can be found under the heading "Finisar Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

Financial Statement Highlights for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013:

  • Revenues increased to $243.4 million, up $5.1 million, or 2.1%, from $238.4 million in the preceding quarter as continued strength in sales of datacom products was partially offset by lower telecom product revenue primarily as the result of sluggish carrier capital expenditure levels and a full three month impact of annual price reductions for telecom products most of which, as in prior years, went into effect in January.

  • Compared to the preceding quarter, the sale of products for datacom applications increased by $16.3 million, or 11.0%, and the sale of products for telecom applications decreased by $11.2 million, or (12.3)%.

  • Gross margin decreased to 27.7% on a GAAP basis from 28.5% in the preceding quarter, primarily as the result of a charge for impairment of certain purchased intangibles related to acquired developed technology and other long-lived assets.

  • Non-GAAP gross margin increased to 32.2% from 30.7% in the preceding quarter, primarily as the result of favorable product mix.

  • GAAP operating income increased $1.2 million to $0.4 million, or 0.2% of revenues, compared to $(0.8) million, or (0.3)% of revenues in the preceding quarter, primarily as the result of a gain on the fair value remeasurement of contingent consideration liability.

  • Non-GAAP operating income increased $2.7 million to $20.0 million, or 8.2% of revenues, compared to $17.4 million, or 7.3% of revenues, in the preceding quarter, primarily as the result of higher non-GAAP gross margins.

  • Cash and cash equivalents totaled $289.1 million at the end of the fourth quarter, compared to $265.5 million at the end of the preceding quarter.

Financial Statement Highlights for fiscal year 2013:

  • Revenues decreased to $934.3 million, down $18.2 million, or (1.9)%, from $952.6 million in the preceding year.

  • Compared to the preceding year, the sale of products for datacom applications increased by $53.6 million, or 10.0%, primarily from sales of 10G and 100G transceivers and transponders and the sale of products for telecom applications decreased by $71.8 million, or (17.3)%, primarily as the result of sluggish carrier capital expenditure levels.

  • Gross margin decreased to 27.5% on a GAAP basis and 30.9% on a non-GAAP basis from 28.7% and 31.9%, respectively, in the preceding year, primarily as the result of a decline in average selling prices.

  • Non-GAAP operating income decreased $24.1 million to $65.2 million, or 7.0% of revenues, from $89.3 million, or 9.4% of revenues, primarily as the result of lower gross margin and an increase in operating expenses, due to increases in employee related expenses, costs of materials associated with new product development, and the consolidation of financial results of Red-C Optical Networks, which was acquired in fiscal 2013.

  • GAAP operating income (loss) decreased $49.7 million to $(5.6) million, or (0.6)% of revenues, from $44.2 million or 4.6% of revenues primarily as the result of the factors affecting Non-GAAP operating income and in addition the impairment of acquired developed technology and other long-lived assets.

OUTLOOK

The Company indicated that it currently expects revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 to be in the range of $245 to $260 million; GAAP operating margin to in the range of approximately 5.0% to 6.5%; non-GAAP operating margin to be in the range of approximately 9.0% to 10.5% and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to be in the range of approximately $0.22 to $0.26. The Company also noted that during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2013 and during the first week of the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company completed the divestment of two non-strategic subsidiaries of Ignis AS, which was acquired by Finisar in May 2012. These divested businesses accounted for approximately $5 million in revenues during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

FINISAR NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, Finisar provides supplemental information regarding the Company's operating performance on a non-GAAP basis that excludes certain gains, losses and charges of a non-cash nature or which occur relatively infrequently and which management considers to be outside our core operating results. Some of these non-GAAP measures also exclude the ongoing impact of historical business decisions made in different business and economic environments. Management believes that tracking non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share provides management and the investment community with valuable insight into our current operations, our ability to generate cash and the underlying business trends which are affecting our performance. These non-GAAP measures are used by both management and our Board of Directors, along with the comparable GAAP information, in evaluating our current performance and planning our future business activities. In particular, management finds it useful to exclude non-cash charges in order to better correlate our operating activities with our ability to generate cash from operations and to exclude certain cash charges as a means of more accurately predicting our liquidity requirements. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when used in conjunction with our GAAP financial information, also allow investors to better evaluate our financial performance in comparison to other periods and to other companies in our industry.

In calculating non-GAAP gross profit in this release, we have excluded the following items from cost of revenues in applicable periods:

  • Changes in excess and obsolete inventory reserve (predominantly non-cash charges or non-cash benefits);
  • Amortization of acquired technology (non-cash charges related to technology obtained in acquisitions);
  • Stock-based compensation expense (non-cash charges);
  • Impairment of acquired developed technology and other long-lived assets (non-cash charges);
  • Acquisition method accounting adjustment for sale of acquired inventory (non-cash charges);
  • Flood related expense (non-recurring cash charge);
  • Reduction in force costs (non-recurring cash charges); and
  • Acquisition related retention payments (non-recurring charges).

In calculating non-GAAP operating income in this release, we have excluded the same items to the extent they are classified as operating expenses, and have also excluded the following items in applicable periods:

  • Gain or loss on litigation settlements and resolutions and related costs (non-recurring cash charges or benefits);
  • Shareholder class action and derivative litigation costs (non-recurring cash expenses associated with the derivative litigation related to our historical stock option granting practices and related to the class action and derivative litigation related to our March 8, 2011 earnings announcement);
  • Gain on fair value re-measurement of contingent consideration (non-cash benefit);
  • Acquisition related costs (non-recurring cash charges);
  • Amortization of purchased intangibles (non-cash charges);
  • Restructuring costs and recoveries (non-recurring charges and benefits); and
  • Impairment of purchased intangibles and other long-lived assets.

In calculating non-GAAP income and non-GAAP income per share in this release, we have also excluded the following items in applicable periods:

  • Interest income from legal settlements (non-recurring benefit);
  • Imputed interest related to restructuring (non-cash charges);
  • Gains and losses on sales of assets (non-recurring or non-cash losses and cash gains related to the periodic disposal of assets no longer required for current activities);
  • Loss related to minority and equity method investments (non-cash charges);
  • Other miscellaneous expenses (income) (non-recurring charges or benefits);
  • Dollar denominated foreign exchange transaction losses (gains) (non-cash charges or benefits);
  • Debt extinguishment loss (non-recurring charges);
  • Fair value re-measurement of equity investment (non-cash gain from re-measurement of value of prior investment in an investee); and
  • Differences between cash payable for income taxes and the provision for income taxes in accordance with GAAP, less discrete items.

In calculating non-GAAP income per share in this release, we have included the shares issuable upon conversion of our outstanding convertible notes and excluded the interest expenses associated with such notes in such periods where such treatment is dilutive to non-GAAP income (loss) per share.

A reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial information to the corresponding GAAP information is set forth below:
