CHATSWORTH, California, May 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- MRV Communications (NASDAQ: MRVC), a provider of innovative network solutions for service providers, data center operators and enterprises, reported financial results for the three-months ended March 31, 2017.

"MRV's investments in new product development over the past few years has enabled us to deepen our relationships with our major customers while broadening our market opportunities and customer base," said Mark Bonney, MRV's president and CEO, "We increased our revenue 12%, a second consecutive quarter of double digit year-over-year growth. Packet and optical revenue grew 17% year-over-year, with OptiDriver® and OptiSwitch® platforms increasing both quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year. In the quarter, we added 15 new OptiDriver customers.  In addition, 13 customers have now purchased our new OptiSwitch V Series of enhanced packet switches.  With the lower cost structure resulting from the initiatives we announced last quarter coupled with our increased momentum with both existing and new customers, we have built a strong foundation for sustainable, profitable growth."

Financial Reporting

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.

First Quarter 2017 Results as compared to First Quarter 2016

  • Revenue was $21.2 million, compared to $18.9 million, up 12.1%, driven by strong growth of packet and optical products.
  • GAAP gross margin remained robust at 50.6%, compared to 51.9%.  Non-GAAP gross margin was 50.6%, compared to 52.1%. The decrease was primarily due to product and geographic mix.
  • GAAP operating expenses were $11.5 million, down from $13.4 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses were $10.9 million, down from $13.0 million, reflecting the impact of the cost reduction actions implemented in the fourth quarter of 2016.
  • GAAP operating loss improved to $0.8 million, from $3.6 million.  Non-GAAP operating loss improved to $0.2 million, from $3.1 million, reflecting increases in revenues and reduction in expenses.
  • GAAP net loss improved to $1.0 million, or $0.15 per share from $3.9 million, or $0.56 per share.
  • Non-GAAP net loss improved to $0.5 million, or $0.08 per share, from $3.5 million, or $0.50 per share.

Balance Sheet Highlights at March 31, 2017 Compared to December 31, 2016

  • At March 31, 2017, the company remained debt free, and cash and investments amounted to
    $21.7 million, compared to $25.4 million. The cash decrease was primarily due to changes in two working capital accounts, specifically an increase in accounts receivable of $2.3 million related to growth and the timing of shipments within the quarter and reduced accounts payable of $0.9 million driven by the timing of payments primarily for inventory of optical components.
  • Working capital totaled $27.8 million, compared to $27.6 million.
