Management Commentary

"The fourth quarter was a solid finish to a very good year for Infinera, driven by continued acceptance of the DTN-X," said Tom Fallon, chief executive officer. "We received purchase commitments from three additional customers in the quarter, including one new to Infinera, and we set another quarterly record for 100G port shipments.

"Our financial results for 2013 demonstrate the strong potential of the DTN-X. Revenues grew 24%, at least double the long haul DWDM market growth estimated by industry analysts; gross margins expanded significantly; we achieved $4 million Non-GAAP net income compared with $43.5 million Non-GAAP net loss in 2012; and we generated $12 million in net free cash flow for the year. Since its introduction in mid 2012, we have received purchase commitments for the DTN-X from a total of 42 customers, representing a cross section of industries including Tier 1 carriers, cable operators, Internet content providers and bandwidth wholesalers. Of these, 15 are new customers to Infinera. These achievements met or exceeded the targets that we provided at our Analyst Day in December of 2012.

"As we look ahead, we believe the opportunity for the DTN-X remains wide open with the 100G cycle still in its early stages. Infinera's Intelligent Transport Network and the DTN-X offers important differentiated features, including its super-channel scale, converged OTN switching and GMPLS network automation. For 2014, we plan to continue our focus on winning new deployments and gaining market share, while driving enhanced profitability, and we remain optimistic about our outlook over the short, intermediate and long-term."

(2) Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash on conversion are required to be separately accounted for as liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the instrument in a manner that reflects the issuer's non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes, we are required to amortize as a debt discount an amount equal to the fair value of the conversion option that was recorded in equity as interest expense on our $150 million 1.75% convertible debt issuance in May 2013 over the term of the notes. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at our non-GAAP results because management believes that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of our underlying business performance.
