MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumentum Holdings Inc. ("Lumentum" or the "Company") today reported results for its fiscal first quarter ended September 29, 2018.

Net revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $354.1 million, with GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $46.1 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. Net revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2018 was $301.1 million, with GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $25.7 million, or $0.40 per diluted share. Net revenue for the fiscal first quarter of 2018 was $243.2 million, with GAAP net income attributable to common stockholders of $2.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal first quarter of 2019 was $85.8 million, or $1.31 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal fourth quarter of 2018 was $61.6 million, or $0.95 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal first quarter of 2018 was $27.8 million, or $0.43 per diluted share.

The Company held $734.3 million in total cash and short-term investments at the end of the fiscal first quarter of 2019.

"Strong telecom and fiber laser demand, along with 3D sensing expansion across multiple customers and their products drove solid first quarter results," said Alan Lowe, President and CEO. "Revenues were up more than 45% relative to the prior year, and we saw new record revenues in ROADMs and fiber lasers.  Our strategic investments in differentiated products targeting growth markets reliant on photonics have proven successful and position us well for the years to come."

The tables above provide comparisons of quarterly results to prior periods, including sequential quarterly and year-over-year changes. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP measures is contained in this release under the section titled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

On July 1, 2018, we adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) using the modified retrospective method applied to all contracts that are not completed contracts at the date of initial adoption(i.e., July 1, 2018). Results for reporting periods after July 1, 2018 are presented under Topic 606, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with our historic accounting under Topic 605. The adoption of Topic 606 did not have a material impact on the nature and timing of our revenues, consolidated statements of operations, cash flows, and balance sheet and therefore, we do not present results for the three months ended September 29, 2018 under Topic 605.

Business Outlook

The Company expects the following for the fiscal second quarter 2019:

  • Net revenue to be in the range of $405 million to $430 million
  • Non-GAAP operating margin of 28.0% to 30.0%
  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.60 to $1.75

Note:  Earnings per share based on approximately 65.9 million shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis

Our projection of 65.9 million shares outstanding does not include the potentially dilutive effect of the convertible notes, as we have the ability and intent to settle the face value in cash; and therefore, we use the treasury stock method for calculating the dilutive impact of the 2024 Notes. The notes will have an impact on our diluted earnings per share when the average price of our common stock exceeds the conversion price of $60.62. Our guidance does not include results from Oclaro or shares issued in connection with the closing of our acquisition of Oclaro as we are unable to predict the timing of the closing.

We have not provided reconciliations from GAAP to non-GAAP measures for our outlook. A large portion of non-GAAP adjustments, such as derivative liability adjustments, restructuring charges, stock-based compensation, litigation, acquisition-related costs, non-cash income tax expense and credits, and other costs and contingencies unrelated to current and future operations are by their nature highly volatile and we have low visibility as to the range that may be incurred in the future. For example, in the fiscal second quarter of 2018, we had a credit of $207.0 million primarily related to a release of a U.S. valuation allowance, which was offset by a write-down of deferred tax assets in the amount of $83.0 million due to the lower corporate tax rate enacted under the 2017 "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" reform.

These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ from those contemplated are: (a) quarter-over-quarter product mix fluctuations which can materially impact profitability measures due to the broad gross margin ranges across our portfolio; (b) continued decline of average selling prices across our businesses; (c) effects of seasonality; (d) the ability of our suppliers and contract manufacturers to meet production and delivery requirements for our forecasted demand; (e) inherent uncertainty related to global markets, including the imposition of tariffs or other duties, and the effect of such markets on demand for our products; (f) changes in customer demand; (g) our ability to attract and retain new customers, particularly in the 3D sensing market; (h) the risk that the Oclaro transaction does not close, due to the failure of one or more conditions to closing or the failure of the businesses (including personnel) to be integrated successfully after closing; (i) the risk that synergies and non-GAAP earnings accretion will not be realized or realized to the extent anticipated; (j) uncertainty as to the market value of the Lumentum shares to be issued as consideration in the Oclaro merger; (k) the risk that required governmental approvals of the Oclaro merger (including China antitrust approvals) will not be obtained or that such approvals will be delayed beyond current expectations; (l) the risk that following the Oclaro transaction, Lumentum's financing or operating strategies will not be successful; (m) litigation in respect of Lumentum or Oclaro or the merger; and (n) disruption from the Oclaro merger making it more difficult to maintain customer, supplier, key personnel and other strategic relationships. For more information on these and other risks, please refer to the "Risk Factors" section included in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal first quarter ended September 29, 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, in the S-4, as amended, filed by Lumentum with the Securities and Exchange Commission which was declared effective May 31, 2018, in connection with the Oclaro transaction and in the documents which are incorporated by reference therein, and in the Company's other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, filed by Lumentum with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 28, 2018.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, Lumentum provides investors with gross margin, operating margin, net income, and net income (loss) per share on a non-GAAP basis. Lumentum believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into the Company's on-going performance and has therefore chosen to provide this information to investors for a more consistent basis of comparison and to help them evaluate the results of the Company's on-going operations and enable more meaningful period to period comparisons. Specifically, the Company believes that providing this information allows investors to better understand the Company's financial performance and, importantly, to evaluate the efficacy of the methodology and information used by management to evaluate and measure such operating performance. However, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, many of the adjustments to our GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measurements reported by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP income (loss) before income taxes and non-GAAP expenses exclude (i) stock-based compensation, (ii) acquisition related costs, (iii) other charges comprised mainly of set-up costs of our Thailand facility, including costs of transferring product lines to Thailand, as well as inventory write-downs due to cancelled programs and other costs and contingencies unrelated to current and future operations, (iv) amortization of acquired developed technologies, (v) workforce related charges such as severance, retention bonuses and employee relocation costs related to formal restructuring plans, (vi) non-cash interest expense, (vii) unrealized gain (loss) on derivative liability, and (viii) non-cash income tax provision impacts, for example, a release of a U.S. valuation allowance, and the write down of deferred tax assets due to the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The presentation of these and other similar items in Lumentum's non-GAAP financial results should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual.

A quantitative reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial data with respect to historical periods is included in the supplemental financial table attached to this press release.

(1)

For the three months ended September 29, 2018, other charges related to non-recurring activities primarily include set-up costs of our facility in Thailand, including costs of transferring product lines to Thailand of $12.7 million. For the three months ended September 30, 2017, other charges related to non-recurring activities primarily include set-up costs of our facility in Thailand of $3.1 million, as well as inventory write-downs due to canceled programs not allocated to the segments of $7.0 million.



(2)

For the three months ended September 29, 2018, 1.5 million shares related to the potential conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock were added to the calculation of diluted shares available on a non-GAAP basis because their inclusion results in more dilutive earnings per share.
