MILPITAS, Calif., Feb. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumentum Holdings Inc. ("Lumentum" or the "Company") today reported results for its fiscal second quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Net revenue for the fiscal second quarter of 2017 was $265.0 million, with GAAP net income of $11.8 million or $0.19 per diluted share. Net revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2017 was $258.1 million, with GAAP net loss of $(3.4) million, or $(0.06) per diluted share. Net revenue for the fiscal second quarter of 2016 was $218.3 million, with GAAP net income of $2.8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal second quarter of 2017 was $35.9 million or $0.57 per diluted share.

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 third quarter of 2017, the Company expects net revenue to be in the range of $250 million to $265 million, non-GAAP operating margin to be 12.5% to 14.0%, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be $0.46 to $0.54 per share, based on approximately 63.0 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 in our fiscal second quarter of 2017 was a gain of $4.8 million and is revalued based on the fair market value of our common stock on the last day of each fiscal quarter, which is difficult to predict and subject to change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Lumentum provides investors with gross margin, operating margin, net income, net income per share and Adjusted EBITDA on a non-GAAP basis. Lumentum also supplementally provides gross profit, income (loss) before income taxes and certain expenses (collectively “non-GAAP expenses”) 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. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements reported by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share, Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP gross profit, income (loss) before income taxes and non-GAAP expenses 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, (v) amortization of acquired developed technologies, (vi) non-cash interest expense, (vii) unrealized loss on derivative liability, and (viii) warranty charges related to our vendor quality issues with expected future recoveries and (ix) other 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 from 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.
