Martinsried/Munich, Germany. July 19, 2012. ADVA Optical Networking announced Q2 2012 financial results for the quarter ended on June 30, 2012, and prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).
Q2 2012 IFRS FINANCIAL RESULTS
Revenues in Q2 2012 rose to a record high of EUR 85.9 million, up 10.3% vs. EUR 77.8 million in Q2 2011 and up 5.2% vs. EUR 81.7 million achieved in Q1 2012. This result is at the upper end of guidance of between EUR 81 million and EUR 86 million. IFRS pro forma operating income, excluding stock-based compensation and amortization & impairment of goodwill & acquisition-related intangible assets, amounted to EUR 6.8 million or 8.0% of revenues in Q2 2012, above guidance of between 3% and 7% of revenues. This compares to EUR 3.5 million or 4.5% of revenues in Q2 2011 and EUR 4.5 million or 5.5% of revenues in Q1 2012. Both the year-on-year and the quarter-on-quarter increases of pro forma operating income are largely due to higher revenues and gross margins.
The IFRS operating income rose to EUR 5.9 million in Q2 2012, after EUR 2.4 million in Q2 2011. The key driver for this improvement is the above-mentioned increase of pro forma operating income.
The IFRS net income amounted to EUR 5.1 million in Q2 2012, up from EUR 0.8 million in Q2 2011. Beyond the improvement of the operating income, net foreign currency exchange gains of EUR 1.9 million, after a loss of EUR 1.0 million in Q2 2011, drove the increase in net income. In part, this effect was offset by higher tax expenses of EUR 2.4 million in Q2 2012 after EUR 0.2 million in Q2 2011. Basic and diluted IFRS net earnings per share in Q2 2012 were EUR 0.11 and EUR 0.10 after EUR 0.02 each in Q2 2011.
In conjunction with the release of its Q2 2012 financial results on July 19, 2012, ADVA Optical Networking will host a conference call for analysts and investors at 3:00 p.m. CEST / 9:00 a.m. EDT.

Q3 2012 OUTLOOK

Further, ADVA Optical Networking anticipates Q3 2012 pro forma operating income to range between 4% and 8% of revenues. ADVA Optical Networking notes that it will continue to perform quarterly reviews of the expected business development with respect to all intangible assets, including capitalized research and development expenses. These reviews may result in non-cash impairment charges in Q3 2012 and beyond. The pro forma operating income guidance provided above excludes any such potential impairment charges.
