  • Record Quarterly Revenue of $75.0 million
  • Sequential Revenue Growth of 34%
  • Record Revenue from 40/100G High Speed Products
  • Recent Acquisition of LAPIS Semiconductor Optical Components Unit (now called NeoPhotonics Semiconductor) Continues Growth of High Speed Portfolio

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYS: NPTN) , a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuit, or PIC, based optoelectronic modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

"NeoPhotonics continues to be a solid leader in 100G optical products for next generation networks, with our portfolio of products once again driving record quarterly revenue," said Tim Jenks, Chairman, President and CEO of NeoPhotonics. "Further, we are pleased with our integration of the acquisition of the optical component unit of LAPIS Semiconductor, which closed on March 29, 2013, and is now referred to as NeoPhotonics Semiconductor. The NeoPhotonics Semiconductor product portfolio includes several products used in 100G networks, and added approximately 20% to our 40/100G revenue in the second quarter."


Second Quarter Summary

  • Revenue was $75.0 million, up $18.9 million, or 34%, from the prior quarter and up $12.0 million, or 19%, from the second quarter 2012
  • Gross margin was 20.2%, down slightly from 20.9% in the prior quarter and down from 24.1% in the second quarter 2012, primarily due to a $2.5 million charge to cost of goods sold related to the one-time step-up in the fair value of assets acquired from LAPIS Semiconductor
  • Non-GAAP gross margin was 25.0%, up from 23.1% in the prior quarter and down from 25.8% in the second quarter 2012
  • Loss from continuing operations was $9.5 million, an improvement from a loss of $10.5 million in the prior quarter and up from a loss of $3.7 million in the second quarter 2012
  • Non-GAAP loss from continuing operations was $3.5 million, an improvement from a loss of $4.4 million in the prior quarter and up from a loss of $1.7 million in the second quarter 2012
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations was $0.31, an improvement from a loss of $0.34 in the prior quarter and up from a loss of $0.13 in the second quarter 2012
  • Non-GAAP diluted loss per share from continuing operations was $0.11, an improvement from a loss of $0.14 in the prior quarter and up from a loss of $0.06 in the second quarter 2012
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $1.2 million, an improvement from a loss of $1.7 million in the prior quarter and down from $1.8 million in the second quarter 2012

A reconciliation of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.

At June 30, 2013, total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was $74.7 million, which reflected the repayment of a portion of the company's bank debt outstanding. Accordingly, bank debt was $26.3 million at June 30, 2013, which is down from $40.0 million at March 31, 2013.

The company intends to file an amended quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 later today. This filing is to adjust a misclassification in the presentation of non-cash capital expenditures included in the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows, which resulted in cash used in operating and investing activities being overstated by $1.1 million. This filing has no impact on previously reported total cash and cash equivalents, consolidated income statements, consolidated balance sheets, or adjusted EBITDA (defined as loss from continuing operations and non-recurring expenses adjusted for certain non-cash items such as stock-based compensation, amortization and depreciation, acquisition-related costs and others), including those reported in the Company's earnings release on May 9, 2013.

Outlook for the Quarter Ending September 30, 2013

The company's expectations for the third quarter 2013 are:

  • Revenue in the range of $72 million to $78 million
  • Non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 24% to 28%
  • Diluted loss per share from continuing operations in the range of $0.21 to $0.31, and on a Non-GAAP basis in the range of a loss of $0.04 to $0.14 per share

The Non-GAAP outlook for the third quarter of 2013 excludes approximately $5.3 million of expenses related to the expected amortization of intangibles, the one-time step up in the fair value of assets acquired from LAPIS Semiconductor, and the anticipated impact of stock-based compensation. Of these expenses, $3.0 million is estimated to relate to cost of goods sold.

Conference Call

The company will discuss these financial results in a conference call at 5:30 p.m. EDT today. The public is invited to listen to a live webcast of the conference call on the Investor Relations section of the company website at http://ir.neophotonics.com. A replay of the webcast will be available on the Investor Relations section on the company's website approximately two hours after the conclusion of the call.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The company provides Non-GAAP gross margin, Non-GAAP net income (loss) from continuing operations, Non-GAAP diluted net income (loss) per share and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental information. In computing certain of these Non-GAAP financial measures, the company excludes certain items included under GAAP, including stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangible assets, amortization of acquisition-related fixed asset step-up, amortization of acquisition-related inventory step-up, acquisition-related costs, restructuring charges, and fair value adjustment to contingent consideration. In computing adjusted EBITDA, the company also excludes interest (income) expense, net, provision for (benefit from) income taxes and depreciation expense.

Management uses these Non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the operating performance of the business and aid in the period-to-period comparability. Management also uses the Non-GAAP financial measures for planning and forecasting and measuring results against its forecast. Using several measures to evaluate the business allows the company and investors to assess the company's relative performance and ultimately monitor the company's capacity to generate returns for its stockholders. The Non-GAAP financial measures provided herein may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the company's industry, as other companies may calculate such financial results differently. The company's Non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as alternatives to the financial measures derived in accordance with GAAP. The company does not consider these Non-GAAP financial measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial results. A reconciliation of the Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is provided in the financial schedules portion of this press release.
