April 29, 2010.

ADVA Optical Networking announced Q1 2010 financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Q1 2010 IFRS FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenues in Q1 2010 at EUR 63.2 million were above guidance of between EUR 57 million and EUR 62 million, up a significant 10.9% vs. Q1 2009 at EUR 56.9 million and up 6.0% vs. EUR 59.6 million reported in Q4 2009. IFRS pro forma operating income, excluding stock-based compensation and amortization & impairment of goodwill & acquisition-related intangible assets, amounted to EUR 2.7 million or 4.3% of revenues in Q1 2010, slightly higher than guidance of between 0% and 4% of revenues. This compares to EUR -0.1 million or -0.1% of revenues in Q1 2009 and EUR 3.1 million or 5.2% of revenues in Q4 2009. Year-on-year, the pro forma operating income improvement is largely due to higher revenues and a stable development of pro forma operating expenses.

The IFRS operating income in Q1 2010 was EUR 1.9 million, after an operating loss of EUR 1.0 million in Q1 2009. The key driver for this improvement is the above-mentioned increase of pro forma operating income.

The IFRS net income amounted to EUR 2.4 million in Q1 2010, after a net loss of EUR 0.5 million in Q1 2009. This significant improvement was largely driven by the development of the operating result described above, as well as net foreign currency exchange gains of EUR 1.1 million in Q1 2010 after EUR 0.5 million in Q1 2009. Basic and diluted IFRS net earnings per share were EUR 0.05 each in Q1 2010 after EUR -0.01 each in Q1 2009.

Q2 2010 OUTLOOK

While ADVA Optical Networking has the potential to continue to grow revenues and aggressively drive cost efficiencies in its product platforms, the current global recovery seems to be in a phase unlike any other previously, enveloped in much uncertainty. In light of stronger market fundamentals, the Company expects Q2 2010 revenues of between EUR 63 million and EUR 68 million. Further, ADVA Optical Networking anticipates Q2 2010 pro forma operating income to range between 1% and 5% of revenues. ADVA Optical Networking notes that it will continue to perform detailed quarterly reviews of the expected business development with respect to all intangible assets, including capitalized research and development expenses. These reviews may result in non-cash impairment charges in Q2 2010 and beyond. The pro forma operating income guidance provided above excludes any such potential impairment charges. ADVA Optical Networking will host its annual shareholders’ meeting on June 9, 2010, in Meiningen, Germany, and will publish its Q2 2010 financial results on July 22, 2010.
