Fremont, Calif., January 26, 2006 -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: OPLK), a leading photonic foundry and provider of optical networking components, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 ended January 1, 2006.
For the second quarter, Oplink reported total revenues of $12.7 million, which represents an increase of 55% compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2005 and an increase of 18% compared with the first quarter of 2006. On a GAAP basis, Oplink reported a net loss of $594,000 or ($0.03) per share, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2006, versus a GAAP net loss of $2.3 million, or ($0.11) per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 and a GAAP net loss of $440,000, or ($0.02) per share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2006.
Non-GAAP net income was $1.1 million after tax, or $0.05 per share, which excludes $643,000 of stock compensation expense resulting from the implementation of the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 123 ® and $1.1 million of in-process research and development charges related to the acquisition of F3 Inc. This compares to a non-GAAP net loss of $2.3 million, or ($0.11) per share, which excludes $26,000 of stock compensation expense reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2005 and a non-GAAP net income of $154,000 after tax, or $0.01 per share, which excludes $597,000 of stock compensation expense reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2006.
"Strong revenue growth in the quarter was driven by increased sales activity across all markets," commented Joe Liu, president and CEO of Oplink. "We continued to post solid results in our OMS business and had good business with larger customers such as Nortel, Huawei and Tellabs. We continue to improve our operating model and closed the quarter with $184.3 million in cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments. We believe that telecommunications spending is strengthening and we are optimistic about our ability to gain market share over time.
"Looking ahead, we are optimistic about our business and are planning for revenue growth in the range of 8 to 10% in the third quarter and to generate earnings in the range of $0.02 to $0.03 per share on a GAAP basis and $0.04 to $0.05 per share on a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock compensation expense," concluded Liu.
