JDSU Announces Fiscal 2012 First Quarter Results

(November 01, 2011)

MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/11 -- JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) (TSX: JDU)

  • GAAP Revenue of $420.8 million; Non-GAAP Revenue of $421.1 million
  • GAAP Gross margin of 43.4%; Non-GAAP Gross margin of 47.3%
  • GAAP EPS of $(0.03); Non-GAAP EPS of $0.18

JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) (TSX: JDU) today reported results for its first fiscal quarter ended October 1, 2011.

On a GAAP basis, net revenue for the first fiscal quarter of 2012 was $420.8 million and net loss was $(5.8) million, or $(0.03) per share. This compares to net revenue of $471.8 million and net income of $9.3 million, or $0.04 per share for the prior quarter, and net revenue of $405.2 million and net income of $0.1 million, or breakeven earnings per share for the first fiscal quarter of 2011.

On a non-GAAP basis, net revenue for the first fiscal quarter of 2012 was $421.1 million and net income was $40.9 million or $0.18 per share. This compares to non-GAAP net revenue of $472.3 million and net income of $53.9 million, or $0.23 per share for the prior quarter, and non-GAAP net revenue of $411.3 million and net income of $44.8 million or $0.20 per share for the first fiscal quarter of 2011.


During the first quarter of fiscal 2012, the Company received an unfavorable arbitrator's decision in a legal dispute unrelated to operations in the current or future quarters. The Company accrued $7.4 million, which includes the arbitration award plus interest, in accordance with authoritative guidance on contingencies. Litigation related to the decision is ongoing and the Company will continue to litigate this matter in an effort to have the award set aside. The accrual is included as a component of "Selling, general and administrative expense" in the Company's consolidated statement of operations on a GAAP basis and has been excluded from non-GAAP results.

"I am very pleased with our operating results during this period of macroeconomic uncertainty," said Tom Waechter, JDSU's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Although revenue levels are being restricted by these global headwinds, the mix of our highly innovative and differentiated products continues to grow with a favorable impact on gross margin. This combined with strong cost controls allowed us to significantly exceed expectations for operating margins. I am also happy to announce that all JDSU, Thailand employees are safe from the flooding in southern Thailand and we have added additional employees there to help meet our customer's needs as best as possible under these difficult conditions."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains, and the discussions in our subsequent conference call will contain, forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These statements include: (i) any anticipation or guidance as to future financial performance, including future revenue, gross margin, operating expense, operating margin, cash flow and other financial metrics; and (ii) the Company's beliefs regarding the purpose, usefulness and efficacy of non-GAAP results and the measures and items the Company includes in the same, as well as any benefits to investors the Company believes its non-GAAP measures provide. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. In particular, the Company's ability to predict future financial performance continues to be difficult due to, among other things: (a) continuing general limited visibility across many of our product lines exacerbated by continued credit and financial market uncertainty, as well as the migration to vendor managed inventory programs; (b) quarter-over-quarter product mix fluctuations, which can materially impact profitability measures due to the broad gross margin range across our portfolio; (c) consolidation of our customer base, which, in the shorter term limits demand visibility, and, in the longer term, could reduce our business potential; (d) average selling prices continue to decline across our businesses; (e) our Communications Test and Measurement business experiences notable seasonality and a significant level of in-quarter book-and-ship business, further limiting our forecasting abilities; (f) we are currently engaged in various product and manufacturing transfers, site consolidations and product discontinuances, which has caused and may cause short term disruptions; and (g) the ability of our suppliers and contract manufacturers to meet production and delivery requirements to our forecasted demand.

For more information on these and other risks affecting the Company's business, please refer to the "Risk Factors" section included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended July 2, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as of the date hereof and the Company does not assume any obligation to update the reasons why actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements.

The following financial tables are presented in accordance with GAAP, unless otherwise specified.

Use of Non-GAAP (Adjusted) Financial Measures
The Company provides non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share financial measures as supplemental information regarding the Company's operational performance. The Company evaluates Company-wide segment performance using, among other things, the measures disclosed in this release for the purposes of evaluating the Company's historical and prospective financial performance, as well as its performance relative to its competitors. Specifically, management uses these items to further its own understanding of the Company's core operating performance. The Company believes its "core operating performance" represents the Company's performance in the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of its operations. Accordingly, management excludes from "core operating performance" those items, such as those relating to restructuring, investing, stock-based compensation expense and non-cash activities that management does not believe are reflective of such ordinary, ongoing and customary course activities.

The Company believes that providing this information to its investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, allows investors to see Company results "through the eyes" of management. The Company further believes that providing this information allows Company investors to both 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 performance.

The non-GAAP adjustments described in this release have historically been excluded by the Company from its non-GAAP measures. The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them, are outlined below.

Revenue from acquisition-related deferred revenue: The Company excludes the fair value adjustment to acquisition-related deferred revenue when calculating non-GAAP revenue. The Company believes that the non-GAAP revenue provides useful information for the investors as they review for underlying trends in the business and facilitates the investors' comparisons of the Company's revenue performance with prior and future periods and to the Company's peers.

Cost of sales, costs of research and development and costs of selling, general and administrative: The Company has incurred periodic expenses, included in its GAAP presentation of gross margin and operating expenses that may include (i) additional depreciation from changes in estimated useful life and the write-down of certain property and equipment that has been identified for disposal but remained in use until the date of disposal, (ii) workforce related charges such as severance, retention bonuses and employee relocation costs related to a formal restructuring plan, (iii) 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, (iv) stock-based compensation under authoritative guidance, (v) other non-recurring charges comprising mainly of one-time acquisition, integration, litigation contingency and other costs. The Company excludes these items for the purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss)and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The Company believes that the impact of these items does not reflect expected future gross profits or operating expenses nor does the Company believe that they provide a meaningful evaluation of current versus past core operational performance.

Gain or loss on sale of available for-sale investments and impairment of investments: The Company has sold investments or adjusted the value of investments from time to time based on market conditions. The Company's activities in this respect are included in the Company's GAAP presentation of net income (loss) and net income (loss) per share. The Company's core business does not include making financial investments in third parties, and such investments do not constitute a material portion of the Company's assets. Moreover, the amount and timing of gains and losses and adjustments to the value of investments are unpredictable. Consequently, the Company believes that gains or losses on these sales and adjustments to the value of investments are not related to the ongoing core business and operating performance of the Company. The Company excludes these items for the purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The Company believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of the Company's "core operating performance".

Amortization of intangibles from acquisitions: The Company records amortization expense related to intangibles. These expenses are included in its GAAP presentation of cost of sales and operating expense, related to the various acquisitions it has made. The Company excludes these items for the purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share. The Company believes that eliminating this expense from operating income is useful to investors because it believes the GAAP measure, alone, is not indicative of its "core operating performance" on cost of sales and operating expenses.

Non cash interest expense: The Company incurs non-cash interest expense accounted for under the authoritative guidance on convertible debt instruments, which requires the Company to separately account for the liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of such instruments. The Company believes that eliminating this item for the purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP net income (loss) per share, is useful to investors. The Company describes the impact of this guidance, in its fiscal 2011 annual report on Form 10-K. The Company believes this GAAP measure is not indicative of its "core operating performance".

Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP net income (loss) is net income (loss). The GAAP measure most directly comparable to non-GAAP net income (loss) per share is net income (loss) per share. The Company believes that these GAAP measures alone are not indicative of its core operating expenses and performance.

The following tables reconcile GAAP measures to non-GAAP measures:
