Infinera Corporation Reports Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2015) - Infinera Corporation (INFN), provider ofIntelligent Transport Networks, today released financial results for the third quarter of 2015 ended September 26, 2015. Infinera's financial results for the third quarter of 2015 include the operating results of Transmode from the date the acquisition closed on August 20, 2015.

GAAP financial results for the quarter were impacted by certain purchase accounting adjustments and one-time acquisition-related costs related to the Transmode acquisition. Additionally, GAAP results include non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and the amortization of debt discount on Infinera's convertible senior notes. The foregoing items have been excluded from Infinera's non-GAAP results.

GAAP revenue for the quarter was $232.5 million compared to $207.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $173.6 million in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 44.2% compared to 46.7% in the second quarter of 2015 and 43.4% in the third quarter of 2014. GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 6.1% compared to 8.0% in the second quarter of 2015 and 4.3% in the third quarter of 2014.

GAAP net income for the quarter was $8.5 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to $17.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015, and $4.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP revenue for the quarter was $233.2 million compared to $207.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 and $173.6 million in the third quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 47.5% compared to 47.4% in the second quarter of 2015 and 44.2% in the third quarter of 2014. Non-GAAP operating margin for the quarter was 14.4% compared to 13.0% in the second quarter of 2015 and 8.6% in the third quarter of 2014.

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $32.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $25.7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2015, and $14.2 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2014.

(1) Business combination accounting principles require Infinera to write down to fair value its maintenance support contracts assumed in the Transmode acquisition. The revenue for these support contracts is deferred and typically recognized over a one year period, so Infinera's GAAP revenue for the one year period after the acquisition will not reflect the full amount of revenue that would have been reported if the acquired deferred revenue was not written down to fair value. The non-GAAP adjustment eliminates the effect of the deferred revenue write-down. Management believes these adjustments to the revenue from these support contracts are useful to investors as an additional means to reflect revenue trends of Infinera's business.
(2) Stock-based compensation expense is calculated in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation effective January 1, 2006. The following table summarizes the effects of stock-based compensation related to employees and non-employees (in thousands):

* Stock-based compensation expense deferred to inventory and deferred inventory costs in prior periods and recognized in the current period.
(3) Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets consists of amortization of developed technology, trade names, and customer relationships acquired in connection with the Transmode acquisition. U.S. GAAP accounting requires that acquired intangible assets are recorded at fair value and amortized over their useful lives. As this amortization is non-cash, Infinera has excluded the effect in calculating its non-GAAP operating expenses, gross margin and net income measures. Management believes the amortization of acquired intangible assets are not indicative of ongoing operating performance and their exclusion provide a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
(4) Business combination accounting principles require Infinera to measure acquired inventory at fair value. The fair value of inventory reflects the acquired company's cost of manufacturing plus a portion of the expected profit margin. The non-GAAP adjustment to Infinera's cost of sales excludes the amortization of the step-up in carrying value for units sold in the quarter. Management believes the adjustment is useful to investors as an additional means to reflect cost of sales and gross margin trends of Infinera's business.
(5) Acquisition-related costs related to Transmode acquisition, which closed during the third quarter of 2015, include legal, financial and other professional fees incurred in connection with the transaction. These amounts have been adjusted in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because management believes that these expenses are non-recurring, not indicative of ongoing operating performance and their exclusion provides a better indication of Infinera's underlying business performance.
(6) In April 2015, Infinera entered into a foreign currency forward contract and in July 2015, Infinera entered into a series of foreign currency exchange option contracts to hedge currency exposures associated with the cash portion of the offer to acquire Transmode. The forward contract and option contracts were subsequently closed during the third quarter of 2015. The net change in the fair value of the forward contract and option contracts impacted Infinera's financial statements for the current interim reporting period. Management has excluded the impact of these gains and losses in arriving at Infinera's non-GAAP results because they are non-recurring and management believes that these gains are not indicative of ongoing operating performance.
(7) 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. Interest expense has 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.
(8) The difference between the GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates were due to the net tax effects of the purchase accounting adjustments related to the Transmode acquisition, which closed during the third quarter of 2015.
