Successfully completes critical integration milestones
LINTHICUM, Md. — 06/08/2011
For the fiscal second quarter 2011, Ciena reported revenue of $417.9 million.
On the basis of generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Ciena’s net loss for the fiscal second quarter 2011 was $(62.7) million, or $(0.66) per common share, which compares to a GAAP net loss of $(90.0) million, or $(0.97) per common share, for the fiscal second quarter 2010.
Ciena’s adjusted (non-GAAP) net loss for the fiscal second quarter 2011 was $(22.4) million, or $(0.24) per common share, which compares to an adjusted (non-GAAP) net loss of $(11.7) million, or $(0.13) per common share for the fiscal second quarter 2010. Reconciliations between the GAAP and adjusted (non-GAAP) measures contained in this release are provided in the tables in Appendix A.
“Momentum continues to be strong across our business, as evidenced by high levels of customer engagement, additional design wins around the world and strong order flows,” said Gary Smith, president and CEO of Ciena.

The adjusted (non-GAAP) measures above and their reconciliation to Ciena’s GAAP results for the periods presented reflect adjustments relating to the following items:
• Share-based compensation costs – a non-cash expense incurred in accordance with share-based compensation accounting guidance.
• Amortization of intangible assets – a non-cash expense arising from acquisition of intangible assets, principally developed technologies and customer-related intangibles that Ciena is required to amortize over its expected useful life.
• Fair value adjustment of acquired inventory – an infrequent charge required by acquisition accounting rules resulting from the required revaluation of inventory acquired from the MEN Business to estimated fair value. This revaluation resulted in a net increase in inventory carrying value and an increase in cost of goods sold for the periods indicated.
• Product rationalization charges – infrequent costs relating to excess and obsolete inventory charges and purchase commitment losses associated with product rationalization decisions made by Ciena as to the combined portfolio of products to be offered following the completion of the MEN Business acquisition.
• Acquisition and integration-related costs – reflects transaction expense, and consulting and third party service fees associated with the acquisition of the MEN Business and the integration of this business into Ciena’s operations. Ciena does not believe that these costs are reflective of its ongoing operating expense following its completion of these integration activities.
• Restructuring costs – infrequent costs incurred as a result of restructuring activities (or in the case of recoveries, previous restructuring activities) taken to align resources with perceived market opportunities that Ciena believes are not reflective of its ongoing operating costs.
• Change in fair value of embedded redemption feature – a non-cash unrealized gain or loss reflective of a mark to market fair value adjustment of an embedded derivative related to the redemption feature of Ciena’s outstanding 4.0% senior convertible notes.

Non-GAAP Presentation of Quarterly Results. This release includes non-GAAP measures of Ciena’s gross profit, operating expenses, income from operations, net income and net income per share. In evaluating the operating performance of Ciena’s business, management excludes certain charges and credits that are required by GAAP. These items, share one or more of the following characteristics: they are unusual and Ciena does not expect them to recur in the ordinary course of its business; they do not involve the expenditure of cash; they are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course; or their magnitude and timing is largely outside of Ciena’s control.
