Calix Reports First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

May 09, 2017

PETALUMA, Calif., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calix, Inc. (NYSE:CALX) today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended April 1, 2017. Revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was $117.5 million, an increase of 19.5% compared to $98.4 million for the first quarter of 2016.

“Revenues in the first quarter were above our expectations as activity accelerated in our turnkey network improvement projects and this led to overall revenue growth of nearly 20% year-over-year,” said Carl Russo, Calix, Inc. President and CEO. “We continued our strategic investments to drive the transformation to Software Defined Access led by our AXOS platform and Calix Cloud,” added Russo.

The GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $33.3 million, or $(0.67) per basic and fully diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $10.7 million, or $(0.22) per basic and fully diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016.

The company’s non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2017 was $28.3 million, or $(0.57) per fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $4.4 million, or $(0.09) per fully diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016. A reconciliation of our first quarter 2017 operating results from GAAP to non-GAAP is provided in this release.


Calix is providing forward-looking estimates for Q2 2017 and full year 2017 results as follows:

Q2 2017

Revenue $122.0 - $126.0 million, representing growth of 13.6% - 17.3% year-over-year
Non-GAAP Gross Margin 40.5% - 43.5%
Non-GAAP Operating Expense $59.0 - $61.0 million
Non-GAAP Net Loss Per Share ($0.19) - ($0.12)

Full year 2017

The company is reiterating its prior guidance for full year 2017 projecting revenue growth of 10% or more relative to 2016 and projecting to achieve a lower net loss on a non-GAAP basis for the full year compared to 2016.

The company estimates that GAAP EPS will be approximately $0.09 lower for Q2 2017 and approximately $0.40 lower for full year 2017 due to the inclusion of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and restructuring charges. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP outlook is provided in this release.

Recast of Revenue and Cost of Revenue by Class

In the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the company’s revenue from services represents more than 10% of its total revenue, hence, the revenue derived from services along with its associated cost of revenue are presented separately in the statements of operations. Revenue and cost of revenue for the prior year comparable period are recast to conform with the current period presentation. In addition, the company is providing supplemental information regarding the recast of historical revenue and cost of revenue for the four quarters and full year of fiscal years 2015 and 2016, as if reported or presented separately by revenue class, in the Investor Relations section of the Calix website at and in an exhibit to the Form 8-K being filed today in connection with this release.

Restructuring Plan

In March 2017, the Company adopted a restructuring plan that seeks to realign the Company’s business to increase its focus towards its investments in innovative Software Defined Access systems and software, while reducing its cost structure in the traditional systems business. The Company began to take action under this plan beginning in March 2017 and recognized approximately $0.7 million of restructuring charges for the three months ended April 1, 2017 consisting primarily of severance and other one-time termination benefits. Throughout the remainder of 2017, the Company intends to take further actions under this plan and expects to incur total pretax charges of up to $6.8 million for the full year related to this plan. These actions are anticipated to result in annualized cost savings approximately equal to the total charges incurred. The Company expects to see cost reduction benefits as a result of these charges starting in fiscal 2018.

Conference Call

In conjunction with this announcement, Calix will host a conference call at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time (4:30 p.m. Eastern Time) today to discuss its first quarter 2017 financial results.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this press release to supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are presented in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP net income (loss), non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expense, non-GAAP operating income (loss), non-GAAP loss before provision of income taxes and non-GAAP basic and diluted income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are provided to enhance the reader’s understanding of the Company’s operating performance as they primarily exclude certain non-cash charges for stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and non-recurring restructuring charges and acquisition-related costs, which the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. Management believes that the non-GAAP measures used in this press release provide investors with important perspectives into the Company’s ongoing business performance and management uses these non-GAAP measures to evaluate financial results and to establish operational goals. The presentation of these non-GAAP measures is not meant to be a substitute for results presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with those GAAP results. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the most directly comparable GAAP results is provided in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures used by the company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
