FREMONT, Calif., Oct 30, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Oplink Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPLK), a leading provider of photonic components, intelligent modules and subsystem solutions, today reported its financial results for its fiscal 2009 first quarter, ended September 30, 2008.

Revenues for the quarter were $43.0 million, compared to $37.3 million reported for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $3.4 million, or $0.16 per share. This compares to a GAAP net loss of $791,000, or $0.04 per share, reported for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.

Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $3.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, which excludes a $4.1 million provision for excess and obsolete inventory, $1.6 million in stock-based compensation and $954,000 in amortization of intangible assets. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $2.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, reported for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, which excluded $1.4 million in stock-based compensation, $961,000 in amortization of intangible assets, $891,000 of inventory adjustments and $451,000 in transitional costs for contract manufacturing, partially offset by a $69,000 adjustment to a previously booked asset impairment charge.

Oplink generated $4.3 million in cash from operations during the first quarter and closed the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments of $146.7 million.

"We reported revenue slightly above the outlook we provided last quarter and continued to generate cash from operations," commented Tom Keegan, President of Oplink. "While we remain optimistic about long-term demand for our products, we are cautious about the near-term impact of economic conditions on telecom capital expenditures and our revenue. We have begun closely controlling expenses to ensure that our costs align with near-term revenue as we enter this challenging period. During this period, we will continue to work towards future design wins with our traditional passive customers and releasing new, more competitive transceiver designs. Despite the near-term challenges, we remain confident in the long-term prospects for our business."

Business Outlook

For the quarter ending December 31, 2008, the Company expects to report revenues of between $34 million and $38 million and GAAP net loss per share of approximately $0.03 to $0.07. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets, and other non-cash or non-recurring charges, if any, the Company expects earnings per diluted share for the quarter ending December 31, 2008 of approximately $0.03 to $0.07.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this earnings release and during the earnings conference call and webcast as described above, Oplink will discuss certain non-GAAP financial measures. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP measures can be found in the accompanying tables. Oplink believes that, while these non-GAAP measures are not a substitute for GAAP results, they provide a basis for evaluating the Company's cash requirements for ongoing operating activities. These non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to the nearest GAAP measure as required under Securities and Exchange Commission rules.
