|MRV Reports Fourth-Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Results|
13% Year-over-Year Quarterly Revenue Growth and Implementation of Cost Savings Initiatives
CHATSWORTH, California, March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MRV Communications (NASDAQ: MRVC), provider of innovative solutions to service providers and data center operators, reported financial results for the three- and twelve-months ended December 31, 2016.
"In the fourth quarter, we grew revenue 13% year-over year delivering revenue of $20.9 million, despite continued temporary softness in orders from two of our largest customers," stated Mark Bonney, President and CEO. "In the quarter, we accomplished several important product development milestones and completed the transition of all packet and optical manufacturing to a single world-class manufacturing partner. Also, we implemented a cost reduction program that reduces our future operating costs by approximately $5 million per year while preserving our capability to execute on our product roadmap, support all of our customers and grow the business."
2016 Key Accomplishments
Adam Scheer, COO, stated, "With most of the heavy lifting associated with our product refresh behind us, the timing was right to streamline our cost structure. The team is now in a stronger position to drive profitable growth. In 2017, we are executing on a number of strategic development activities that include the release of new 100G and 200G products for optical transport, the launch of variants of the OS V-Series for a specific customer, and continued enhancements of our Pro-Vision® service orchestration platform. With these growth initiatives, and with a lower cost structure, we are well positioned for profitable growth going forward."
The Company uses certain non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP measures is provided in the attached table.
