Calix Reports First Quarter 2016 Financial Results

May 3, 2016
PETALUMA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/03/16 -- Calix, Inc.(NYSE: CALX) today announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 26, 2016. Revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $98.4 million, an increase of 8.1% compared to $91.0 million for the first quarter of 2015.

"During the first quarter, we experienced solid demand across our customers, products and regions," said Carl Russo, Calix, Inc. President and CEO. "As communications service providers worldwide increasingly seek to improve the subscriber experience, we believe our AXOS platform, along with our Unified Access portfolio of broadband access software, systems, and services led by Compass and next generation copper and fiber technologies, positions Calix customers to deliver an unmatched broadband experience to their subscribers," added Russo.

The company's non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2016 was $4.4 million, or $(0.09) per basic and fully diluted share, compared to a non-GAAP net loss of $3.4 million, or $(0.07) per basic and fully diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015. A reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results is included as part of this release.

"During the quarter, we repurchased a total of $12.8 million of stock, thereby completing our $40 million stock repurchase program, previously authorized by our Board in April 2015. Under the program, we repurchased a total of 5.3 million shares of common stock in 2015 and 2016," said William Atkins, Calix, Inc. Executive Vice President and CFO.

The GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2016 was $10.7 million, or $(0.22) per basic and fully diluted share, compared to a GAAP net loss of $11.9 million, or $(0.23) per basic and fully diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015. A reconciliation of our first quarter 2016 operating results from non-GAAP to GAAP is provided on the next page.

As described in more detail in our Form 8-K filed April 18, 2016 with the SEC, Calix has entered into a memorandum of understanding of a settlement in principle of the litigation related to its 2011 acquisition of Occam Networks, Inc. Under the terms of the settlement, Calix would not be responsible for contributing any portion of the settlement consideration. In addition, as part of the settlement, Calix will receive payment of $4.5 million in partial recovery of certain out-of-pocket expenses.

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) 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 and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, and non-recurring acquisition-related costs, which the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. Acquisition-related costs include legal fees and associated expenses incurred under a pre-existing contract between Occam and its retained advisor in connection with the Occam acquisition. 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.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements made in this press release and the earnings call referencing the press release that are not statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are subject to the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements relate to, but are not limited to, the execution of a stock repurchase program. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from expectations, including but not limited to the risks described in our 2015 Form 10-K and our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, each as filed with the SEC and available at, particularly in the sections titled "Risk Factors." Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date the statements are made and are based on information available to us at the time those statements are made and/or management's good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events. We assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect actual performance or results, changes in assumptions or changes in other factors affecting forward-looking information, except to the extent required by applicable securities laws. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements.
