SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Infinera Corporation (NASDAQ: INFN), provider of Intelligent Transport Networks, today released financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 28, 2013. GAAP revenues for the quarter were $139.1 million compared to $142.0 million in the third quarter of 2013 and $128.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

GAAP gross margins for the quarter were 40% compared to 48% in the third quarter of 2013 and 34% in the fourth quarter of 2012. GAAP net loss for the quarter was $(10.2) million, or $(0.08) per share, compared to net income of $3.3 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2013 and a net loss of $(16.1) million, or $(0.14) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP gross margins for the quarter were 41% compared to 49% in the third quarter of 2013 and 36% in the fourth quarter of 2012. Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was $(0.2) million, or breakeven on an earnings per share basis, compared to net income of $12.8 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013 and net loss of $(6.0) million, or $(0.05) per share, in the fourth quarter of 2012. These Non-GAAP measures exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expenses and the amortization of debt discount on our convertible senior notes.

GAAP gross margins for the year were 40% compared to 36% in 2012. GAAP net loss for the year was $(32.1) million, or $(0.27) per share compared to $(85.3) million, or $(0.77) per share in 2012.

A further explanation of the use of non-GAAP financial information and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the GAAP equivalents can be found at the end of this release.

"The fourth quarter was a solid finish to a very good year for Infinera, driven by continued acceptance of the DTN-X," said Tom Fallon, chief executive officer. "We received purchase commitments from three additional customers in the quarter, including one new to Infinera, and we set another quarterly record for 100G port shipments.

"Our financial results for 2013 demonstrate the strong potential of the DTN-X. Revenues grew 24%, at least double the long haul DWDM market growth estimated by industry analysts; gross margins expanded significantly; we achieved $4 million Non-GAAP net income compared with $43.5 million Non-GAAP net loss in 2012; and we generated $12 million in net free cash flow for the year. Since its introduction in mid 2012, we have received purchase commitments for the DTN-X from a total of 42 customers, representing a cross section of industries including Tier 1 carriers, cable operators, Internet content providers and bandwidth wholesalers. Of these, 15 are new customers to Infinera. These achievements met or exceeded the targets that we provided at our Analyst Day in December of 2012.
