Calix Inc. Sets Earnings Announcement Date for the Third Quarter of 2011 and Announces Preliminary Estimates

PETALUMA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Calix Inc.(NYSE: CALX) today announced that it plans to release third quarter 2011 financial results after the market closes on Thursday, October 20, 2011. The company also announced that preliminary estimates for revenue and non-GAAP earnings per share would be below previous guidance for the third quarter of 2011.

Preliminary estimates for the third quarter are for revenue to be in the range of $83 to $85 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of 7 to 9 cents per share. On July 21, 2011, the company provided guidance for the third quarter ending September 24, 2011 for revenue of $104 million and non-GAAP earnings per share of 20 cents per share. The revised estimates for the third quarter reflect a slow-down in business related to changes in macro-economic conditions, fiber shortages in certain portions of the market, and continued delays in Broadband Stimulus awards under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 becoming shippable orders.

Calix will provide further commentary on these issues and their potential impact on the company's fourth quarter results during its third quarter financial results conference call which is scheduled for 1:30pm PDT (4:30pm EDT) on October 20, 2011. Investors can listen to a live webcast of the conference call by visiting the Calix Investor Relations website at http://investor-relations.calix.com. A replay of the webcast will also be available on the same website following the completion of the call.
