ADTRAN, Inc. Announces Revised First Quarter Revenue and Earnings Estimate
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. --(Business Wire)--
ADTRAN (News - Alert), Inc. (NASDAQ: ADTN) announced revised revenue and earnings
estimates for the first quarter ending March 31, 2014. Based upon
information currently available, revenue for the quarter is expected to
range from $146.0 million to $147.0 million. GAAP earnings per share for
the quarter, assuming dilution, are expected to range from $0.16 to
$0.17. Non-GAAP earnings per share for the quarter are expected to range
from $0.20 to $0.21. Non-GAAP earnings per share exclude the effect of
acquisition related expenses, amortizations and adjustments, and stock
ADTRAN Chief Executive Officer Tom Stanton stated, "Although revenue for
the quarter came in lower than expected, operating income increased
approximately 74% over the same period last year driven by significant
improvements in gross margin. Our domestic revenues were negatively
impacted by a slower start to spending with our tier 2 and tier 3
service provider customers. International revenues were strong for the
quarter, increasing approximately 56% over the same period last year. We
saw a notable acceleration in bookings later in the quarter, but the
timing precluded us from meeting our prior revenue expectations. The
significant acceleration we saw in bookings exiting the quarter leads us
to anticipate revenue in the second quarter of 2014 to be in the range
of $172 million to $180 million."
