Management Commentary:

“Our first quarter performance was exceptionally strong in what is typically a soft quarter for our industry. We are benefitting from the continued investment cycle in 100G and network convergence. The favorable economics of our PIC-based architectures and the operational benefits of super-channels positions us as the industry recognized leader in the optical market,” said Tom Fallon, Chief Executive Officer. “I remain optimistic about our short-, intermediate- and long-term opportunity. Our focus this year remains on winning footprint, gaining market share, and servicing customers. We believe the continued growth of our business in long-haul, combined with product investments in adjacent markets, is the best way for us to provide long-term shareholder value.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP measures that exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and amortization of debt discount on Infinera’s convertible senior notes. Infinera believes these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of its underlying financial performance and also its prospects for the future and are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions.

(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, Infinera is 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 its $150 million 1.75% convertible debt issuance in May 2013 over the term of the notes. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that this non-cash expense is not indicative of ongoing operating performance and provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
