Calix Announces Stock Repurchase Program

April 28, 2015

PETALUMA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/15 -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) today announced that its board of directors has approved a program to repurchase up to $40 million of its common stock from time to time.

The buyback authorization would equate to approximately 4.8 million shares in the aggregate, or approximately 9% of our common stock issued and outstanding as of February 25, 2015, assuming that Calix repurchases the entire authorized amount at a price per share of $8.42, the closing trading price per share of its common stock on April 27, 2015.

"Calix's management team is confident of the company's continued opportunities for growth in a world of increasing demand for broadband access. We see our stock as being a good investment in this environment," said Carl Russo, Calix president and CEO. "Our strong balance sheet and consistent cash generation give us the resources to be able to adopt this program while pursuing our goal of continuing to invest in our business and to position the company to win new customers and to target new customer segments."

Stock may be purchased under this program in open market or private transactions, through block trades, and/or pursuant to any trading plan that may be adopted in accordance with Rule 10b5-1 of the Exchange Act. Any open market purchases will be made in accordance with the limitations set out in Rule 10b-18 of the Exchange Act. The decision to consummate any repurchases (including any decision to adopt a 10b5-1 plan for this purpose) will be made at management's discretion at prices management considers to be attractive and in the best interests of the company and its stockholders.

The repurchase program may be suspended, terminated or modified at any time. The program does not oblige the company to purchase any particular number of shares.
