SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Finisar Corporation ( NASDAQ : FNSR ), a global technology leader for subsystems and components for fiber optic communications, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended January 27, 2013.
"I am pleased to report fiscal third quarter revenues of $238.4 million, which is $6.3 million, or 2.7%, greater than the prior quarter. Our growth in revenues came primarily from sales of 10G and 100G transceivers and transponders for datacom applications," said Jerry Rawls, Finisar's executive Chairman of the Board.
"During the quarter, we continued to invest significantly in technology and product development and made substantial progress on a number of new products for our datacom and telecom products lines. We are planning several compelling product announcements at the OFC show during the week of March 18th in Anaheim, California," said Eitan Gertel, Finisar's Chief Executive Officer.
Operating Statement Highlights for the third quarter of fiscal 2013:
Revenues increased to $238.4 million, an increase of $6.3 million, or 2.7%, from $232.0 million in the preceding quarter, primarily driven by growth in revenues from 10G and 100G transceivers and transponders for datacom applications.
Compared to the preceding quarter, the sale of products for datacom applications increased by $7.8 million, or 5.6%, and the sale of products for telecom applications decreased by $1.5 million, or (1.6)%, as the result of the impact of approximately one month of the annual telecom price reductions that typically go into effect on approximately January 1st, partially offset in the increase in unit sales including tunable XFP transceivers.
Gross margin increased to 28.5% on a GAAP basis and 30.7% on a non-GAAP basis, from 27.5% and 30.5%, respectively, in the preceding quarter, primarily as a result of higher revenue levels, partially offset by the impact of one month of the annual telecom price reductions that typically go into effect on approximately January 1st.
GAAP operating loss increased $0.8 million to $0.8 million, or (0.3) % of revenues, compared to an operating gain of $0.05 million, or 0.0% of revenues, in the preceding quarter.
Non-GAAP operating income increased $1.5 million to $17.4 million, or 7.3% of revenues, compared to $15.8 million, or 6.8% of revenues, in the preceding quarter as the Company was able to hold non-GAAP operating expenses relatively flat while revenues grew.
Non-GAAP EBITDA increased $2.4 million to $31.1 million, or 13.1% of revenues, compared to $28.7 million, or 12.4% of revenues, in the preceding quarter.
