SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 9, 2014) – Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings), the industry leader in network innovation, today provided certain preliminary estimated financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014.
Revenue for the third quarter of 2014 is now expected to be in the range of $1,110 million to $1,120 million, below the Company’s previous guidance of $1,150 million to $1,200 million, primarily due to lower-than-anticipated demand from service providers, particularly in the U.S. Due in part to the Company’s continued focus on cost reduction initiatives and the benefit of reduced variable compensation for the quarter, it expects non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.34 to $0.36, compared to the Company’s previous guidance of $0.35 to $0.40 per diluted share.
The above information is preliminary and subject to completion of quarter-end financial reporting processes and review.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains statements as to expectations for non-GAAP net income per share. Because the Company has not completed its financial reporting and review processes for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, GAAP net income per share for the period ended September 30, 2014 is not currently available. Juniper Networks believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial information provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company’s financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income per share includes adjustments based on the following items: amortization of intangible assets, share based compensation expenses, divestiture related charges, restructuring charges, supplier component remediation charge, gain or loss on equity investments, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, and income tax effect of non-GAAP exclusions.
