Oplink Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

FREMONT, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPLK), a leading provider of design, integration and optical manufacturing solutions (OMS) for optical networking components, modules and subsystems, today reported its financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2013, ended September 30, 2012.

Revenues for the quarter were $44.9 million and GAAP net income was $3.4 million, or $0.17 per diluted share. This compares to revenues of $44.2 million and a GAAP net loss of $5.2 million, or $(0.27) per share, reported in the prior quarter, and revenues of $43.4 million and GAAP net income of $1.2 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, reported in the same period of the prior year.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $5.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, as compared to $3.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, reported in the prior quarter, and $3.1 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, reported in the same period of the prior year.

Expenses incurred by the Company's new Mobile Interactive business division totaled $1.1 million for the quarter. Excluding such expenses, net of tax, Oplink's non-GAAP net income would have been $5.8 million, or $0.30 per diluted share.

Oplink generated $7.8 million in cash from operations, used $3.6 million for stock repurchases, and closed the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short-term and long-term investments of $180.2 million.

"We are pleased with our financial results for the quarter," commented Joe Liu, Chairman and CEO of Oplink. "Oplink is well positioned to benefit from our broad portfolio of advanced technologies and long established manufacturing advantages. We are especially excited about the upcoming product launch from our new Mobile Interactive venture. The first product offering from this venture is a Smartphone-centric remote interactive security and monitoring system for home and business. We are ready to launch, and our products and services will be available for sale via www.oplinksecurity.com and other web stores."

Business Outlook for the Quarter Ending December 30, 2012

For the quarter ending December 30, 2012, the Company expects to report revenues between $43 million and $46 million and GAAP net income per diluted share of approximately $0.12 to $0.18. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock compensation, amortization of intangible assets and any other non-cash or non-recurring charges, the Company expects earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.19 to $0.25. GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the quarter ending December 30, 2012 assume an effective tax rate of 21%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this earnings release and during the earnings conference call and webcast as described above, Oplink will discuss certain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP measures can be found in the accompanying tables.

Oplink believes that providing these non-GAAP measures to its investors provides investors the benefit of viewing Oplink's performance using the same financial metrics that the management team uses in making many key decisions and evaluating how Oplink's "core operating performance" and its results of operations may look in the future. Oplink defines "core operating performance" as its on-going performance in the ordinary course of its operations. Items that are non-recurring or do not involve cash expenditures, such as one-time tax benefits or charges, impairment charges, restructuring charges, amortization of intangible assets and non-cash compensation related to stock and options, are not included in Oplink's view of "core operating performance."
