MILPITAS, Calif., Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumentum Holdings Inc. (“Lumentum” or the “Company”) today reported results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended July 2, 2016.

Net revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter 2016 was $241.7 million, with GAAP net income of 14.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. Net revenue for fiscal third quarter 2016, which was a fourteen week quarter, was $230.4 million, with GAAP net loss of $(7.6) million, or $(0.13) per diluted share. Net revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter 2015 was $208.9 million, with GAAP net loss of $(15.8) million, or $(0.27) per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal fourth quarter 2016 was $25.4 million or $0.41 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal third quarter 2016 was $19.7 million, or $0.32 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal fourth quarter 2015 was $9.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share. The Company held $157.1 million in total cash at the end of the fiscal fourth quarter 2016, which decreased by $0.1 million sequentially, and the Company remains debt-free.

“Fiscal fourth quarter results were driven by strong growth in newer products, combined with operating leverage,” said Alan Lowe, president and CEO. “We achieved record revenues that grew approximately 16% over the same period last year; our 100G Datacom revenue was up 40% sequentially and 241% year-over-year; TrueFlex® ROADM revenue was up 21% sequentially, and 226% from last year; and, Commercial Lasers was up 22% sequentially and 35% from last year. The book-to-bill ratio was greater than one, as North America metro deployments begin to ramp, hyperscale data centers ready themselves for the shift to 100G, customer demand for fiber lasers is strengthening, and demand in China remains robust.”

The tables above provide comparisons of quarterly results to prior periods, including sequential quarterly and year-over-year changes. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is contained in this release under the section titled “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

Business Outlook

For the fiscal first quarter 2017, the Company expects net revenue to be in the range of $245 million to $255 million, non-GAAP operating margin to be 11.0% to 12.5%, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be $0.40 to $0.46 per share, based on approximately 62.5 million shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis.

We have not provided reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP measures for our outlook. A large portion of non-GAAP adjustments, such as derivative liability adjustments, restructuring, stock-based compensation, litigation, and other costs and contingencies unrelated to current and future operations are by their nature highly volatile and we have low visibility as to the range that may be incurred in the future. For example, the unrealized gain or loss on the derivative liability for Series A Preferred Stock is revalued based on the fair market value of our common stock on the last day of the fiscal quarter, which is difficult to predict and subject to constant change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Lumentum provides investors with gross margin, operating margin, net income, and net income (loss) per share on a non-GAAP basis. Lumentum believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into the Company's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of the Company's on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. Specifically, the Company believes that providing this information allows investors to better understand the Company’s financial performance and, importantly, to evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by management to evaluate and measure such operating performance. However, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future.

Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income (loss), and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, and Adjusted EBITDA exclude (i) workforce related charges such as severance, retention bonuses and employee relocation costs related to formal restructuring plans, (ii) costs for facilities not required for ongoing operations, and costs related to the relocation of certain equipment from these facilities and/or contract manufacturer facilities, (iii) stock-based compensation, (iv) amortization of intangibles, and (v) other non-recurring charges comprising mainly of one-time provision for excess and obsolete inventory, acquisition, integration, litigation and other costs and contingencies unrelated to current and future operations including post-separation activities such as small site consolidations, reorganizations, insourcing or outsourcing of activities, severance related costs and transition related costs for the separation from Viavi. Beginning in the third fiscal quarter 2016, we began to exclude unrealized gain or loss on derivative liability for the Series A Preferred Stock to Adjusted EBITDA and prior periods have been adjusted. Management does not believe that these items are reflective of the Company's underlying operating performance. The presentation of these and other similar items in Lumentum's non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual.

A quantitative reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial data with respect to historical periods is included in the supplemental financial table attached to this press release. The Company has not reconciled its projections of non-GAAP earnings per share. As items that impact net loss are out of the Company's control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted, Lumentum has determined that a quantitative reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures cannot be provided without unreasonable efforts.
