NeoPhotonics Reports First Quarter Financial Results and Updated Outlook for Second Quarter 2014

NeoPhotonics Corporation (NYSE: NPTN), a leading designer and manufacturer of photonic integrated circuits, or PIC, based optoelectronic modules and subsystems for bandwidth-intensive, high speed communications networks, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

“We are pleased to announce the highest first quarter revenue in the Company’s history, and with the anticipated filing of our Form 10-Q later this month, we will be returning to compliance with SEC filing requirements,” said Tim Jenks, NeoPhotonics Chairman and CEO. “While the first quarter was a challenging one as we added 100G capacity and announced several new PIC based 100G products, we are increasingly confident that NeoPhotonics is well positioned to benefit from the rapid growth in deployment of 100G systems worldwide.”

Outlook for the Second Quarter of 2014 Ending June 30, 2014

The Company’s updated outlook for the second quarter of 2014 is:

  • Revenue in the range of $73 million to $78 million;
  • Non-GAAP gross margin in the range of 20% to 25%; and
  • Diluted net loss per share in the range of $0.13 to $0.23, and on a Non-GAAP basis in the range of a net loss of $0.16 to $0.26 per diluted share
