MARTINSRIED, GERMANY and MUNICH, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- ADVA Optical Networking announced Q4 and audited full-year 2012 financial results for the period ended December 31, 2012, and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
Q4 2012 IFRS FINANCIAL RESULTS
Revenues totaled EUR 80.3 million in Q4 2012 and were in the upper half of guidance of between EUR 77 million and EUR 82 million. Revenues are down 3.8% vs. Q4 2011 at EUR 83.4 million and down 2.4% vs. Q3 2012 at EUR 82.3 million. IFRS pro forma operating income, excluding stock-based compensation and amortization & impairment of goodwill & acquisition-related intangible assets, amounted to EUR 4.8 million in Q4 2012 or 6.0% of revenues, at the upper end of guidance of between 2% and 6% of revenues. This compares to Q4 2011 IFRS pro forma operating income of EUR 7.4 million or 8.9% of revenues, and to Q3 2012 IFRS pro forma operating income of EUR 5.6 million or 6.8% of revenues. These developments are largely due to lower revenues and increased selling and marketing expenses.
The IFRS operating income in Q4 2012 was EUR 4.3 million, down from EUR 6.7 million in Q4 2011. This is due to the above-mentioned reasons for lower pro forma operating income.
The IFRS net income in Q4 2012 amounted to EUR 4.1 million after EUR 8.7 million in Q4 2011. Beyond the reduced operating income, net foreign currency exchange losses of EUR 0.1 million in Q4 2012 after gains of EUR 1.9 million in Q4 2011 contributed to this decrease. Basic and diluted IFRS net earnings per share were EUR 0.09 and EUR 0.08, respectively, down from EUR 0.18 each in Q4 2011.
FULL-YEAR 2012 IFRS FINANCIAL RESULTS
Driven by increased Ethernet access business, revenues rose to a record high of EUR 330.1 million in 2012, 6.2% above the EUR 310.9 million reported in 2011. IFRS pro forma operating income increased from EUR 17.3 million or 5.6% of revenues in 2011 to EUR 21.8 million or 6.6% of revenues in 2012. This improvement is largely due to revenue and gross margin growth.
2012 IFRS operating income at EUR 18.8 million also increased significantly from EUR 13.2 million in 2011. The main reason for this positive development is the above-mentioned increase in pro forma operating income and a reduction in amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions from EUR 2.5 million in 2011 to EUR 1.6 million in 2012.
Finally, IFRS net income amounted to EUR 16.7 million in 2012, slightly down vs. EUR 16.9 million in 2011. The positive operating income development was mostly compensated by income tax expenses of EUR 1.8 million after income tax benefits of EUR 2.9 million in 2011. Furthermore, net foreign currency exchange gains of EUR 0.8 million in 2012 were lower than the EUR 2.3 million recorded in 2011. Basic and diluted IFRS net earnings per share were EUR 0.35 and EUR 0.34 in 2012, slightly down from EUR 0.36 and EUR 0.35, respectively, in 2011.
"We are very pleased with our Q4 2012 results which were achieved in a very volatile macro-economic environment. At EUR 80.3 million, our Q4 2012 revenues are in the upper half of guidance. Our pro forma gross margin strengthened from 39.3% in Q3 2012 and 40.0% in Q4 2011, to 41.8% in Q4 2012. Prior to amortization of capitalized development expenses, pro forma gross margin increased from 44.5% in Q3 2012 and 43.9% in Q4 2011, to 46.7% in Q4 2012. We achieved pro forma operating income of 6.0% of revenues in Q4 2012, at the upper end of guidance, demonstrating our focus on managing operational costs. In addition, cash and cash equivalents were at another record high of EUR 70.6 million at the end of Q4 2012, slightly up from EUR 70.3 million at the end of the previous quarter. Throughout the year, ADVA Optical Networking maintained financial strength, with an equity ratio in excess of 50% and record high net liquidity at the end of every quarter. At year-end 2012, net liquidity was at an all-time high of EUR 41.6 million, up from EUR 41.3 million at the end of Q3 2012. For the full year 2012, through a combination of revenue growth, increased gross margins, and enhanced operational excellence, we were able to further grow profitability. Pro forma operating income grew by 26%, from EUR 17.3 million or 5.6% of revenues in 2011 to EUR 21.8 million or 6.6% of revenues in 2012," commented Jaswir Singh, chief financial officer & chief operating officer of ADVA Optical Networking.
In conjunction with the release of its full-year 2012 audited IFRS financial results on February 28, 2013, ADVA Optical Networking will host a conference call for analysts and investors at 3:00 p.m. CET / 9:00 a.m. EST. Participating in the call will be ADVA Optical Networking's chief executive officer, Brian Protiva, and chief financial officer & chief operating officer, Jaswir Singh. Interested parties may dial in at +49 69 201744 210 or +1 877 423 0830, pin code 997 939#, and download the corresponding presentation from ADVA Optical Networking's website, www.advaoptical.com, located in the "About Us / Investor Relations" section on the "Financial Results" page under "Conference Calls".
Q1 2013 OUTLOOK
In Q1 2013, ADVA Optical Networking expects revenues to range between EUR 72 million and EUR 77 million, and anticipates pro forma operating income of between -2% and +2% of revenues. As a matter of caution, ADVA Optical Networking notes that it will continue to perform quarterly reviews of the expected business development with respect to all intangible assets, including capitalized development expenses. In case of highly adverse business prospects, these reviews may result in non-cash impairment charges in Q1 2013 and beyond. The pro forma operating income guidance provided above excludes any such potential impairment charges. ADVA Optical Networking will publish its Q1 2013 financial results on April 25, 2013.
"Despite the difficult macro-economic environment, we achieved our goal to grow profitably. ADVA Optical Networking successfully recognizes and targets rapidly changing technology trends and growth markets. We continue to be the multi-year global market leader in Ethernet Access Devices with a market share of more than 20%, and remain a strong competitor in EMEA for metro optical transport solutions. Although long-term growth perspectives continue to be strong, for 2013 we are likely to face significant volatility in our market. Current carrier investment plans draw a mixed picture. However, an increasing share of the carriers' spending will flow into the migration to LTE projects which should translate into incremental business for ADVA Optical Networking. Beyond potential full-year revenue growth, our focus on innovation and strategic technology partnerships will result in an expanding share of higher- margin, software-heavy applications as well as expanded service offerings, supporting our long-term profitability commitment," stated Brian Protiva, chief executive officer of ADVA Optical Networking.
