Management Commentary

"Activity in our first quarter reflected demand from our customers for both our existing and next generation platforms," said Tom Fallon, president and chief executive officer. "Our new 500G PIC-based DTN-X platform, with super-channels and integrated OTN switching, is generating strong interest among potential and existing customers who now have a choice between our DTN and DTN-X. As planned, we are on track to ship the new platform by the end of the June quarter and to begin revenue recognition in the second half of this calendar year.

"We are pleased to have announced our first DTN-X win, with Cable&Wireless Worldwide, a new Tier 1 UK-based customer. In total, we have received DTN-X purchase orders from four customers, including Cable&Wireless and three existing customers. We are very pleased with the early traction with this new product as we believe this is the first step toward our ushering in a new era in network optical infrastructure."

The company reported these first quarter highlights and developments:

  • The addition of four new DTN customers;
  • An internet content provider as its one greater than 10% customer;
  • Three wholesale carriers and one cable company rounding out its top five customers;
  • Telstra International as the company's first announced DTN 40G customer; and
  • Commencement of the Telcordia OSMINE certification process to satisfy a North American Tier 1 carrier request.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP measures that exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and non-recurring restructuring and other related costs. We believe these adjustments are appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of our underlying financial performance and also our prospects for the future and are considered by management for the purpose of making operational decisions. In addition, these results are the primary indicators management uses as a basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income (loss), basic and diluted net income (loss) per share, or gross margin prepared in accordance with GAAP.

For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section titled, "GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliations." We anticipate disclosing forward-looking non-GAAP information in our conference call to discuss our first quarter results, including an estimate of non-GAAP earnings for the second quarter of 2012 that excludes non-cash stock-based compensation expenses.
