MRV Announces Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

CHATSWORTH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MRV Communications, Inc. (Pink Sheets: MRVC) (“MRV” or the “Company”), a leading provider of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and integration and managed services, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

“Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition”

Second quarter 2011 highlights include:

  • Revenue of $68.2 million, an increase of 19% over the second quarter of 2010, including positive foreign exchange impact
  • Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) improved as a percentage of revenue to 28.8% from 34.6%
  • The Network Equipment group added 60 customers in the first half of 2011, driven by an increase in the group’s data center business and continues to expand its Tier 1 carrier customer base
  • FiberDriver™ and OptiSwitch® product lines continue to receive strong demand
  • The Network Integration group increased operating profit by 55% year-over-year through increased revenue of 21%, stable gross margin of 27.8% and muted operating expense growth of 7%

Dilip Singh, chief executive officer of MRV, commented, “Our strong year-over-year revenue growth on a constant currency basis is indicative of our increased efforts to develop and market products and services that are in demand by our worldwide customers. We have also announced our 100Gbps product offerings in coordination with our customers to meet their future needs. MRV was able to grow revenue and sequentially improve gross and operating margins, continuing the momentum of an atypically strong first quarter. As we look ahead, we will continue our focus on new product development and service offerings and on global revenue growth while attempting to further streamline our cost structure.”

MRV reported second quarter 2011 revenue of $68.2 million, an increase of 19% when compared with revenue of $57.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. The year-over-year increase is attributable to growth across both reporting segments, with Network Equipment revenue increasing 15% and Network Integration increasing 21%. Also contributing to the second quarter’s strong growth was a favorable foreign exchange impact.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2011 was 43.1%, down from 45.5% in the second quarter of 2010 due to both business units in the Network Equipment group. MRV’s Optical Communications Systems division (“OCS”) had $0.6 million in one-time expenses in cost of goods sold related to the exit of a product line and Creative Electronic Systems S.A. (“CES”) lost margin due to the strengthening of the Swiss franc against the dollar and the euro. Gross margin improved sequentially from 40.5% in the first quarter.

SG&A for the second quarter of 2011 was $19.6 million, or 28.8% of sales, compared to $19.8 million, or 34.5% of sales reported in the second quarter of 2010. The decline as a percent of sales is due to a combination of better leverage of MRV’s sales and marketing expenses and higher one-time G&A costs in the prior year.

Operating Segment Results

MRV’s operating units, as outlined below, provide a wide range of optical communications network infrastructure equipment and services to a broad range of telecom concerns. OCS is also a single source provider of routing, Ethernet and optical transport equipment and services, able to provide its customers with integrated network management, cost effective equipment and network integration services expertise. CES provides complex high-performance avionics, defense and communications boards, sub-systems and complete systems to aeronautical and defense industries, globally.

Network Equipment

MRV’s Network Equipment operating segment reported revenue of $33.7 million, an increase of 15% when compared with revenue of $29.3 million in the second quarter of 2010. CES increased revenue by 36% due in part to higher sales from its largest customer than in the prior year. The OCS business unit also saw strong revenue growth with a 9% increase year-over-year attributable to gains in the FiberDriver and OptiSwitchproduct lines and in service revenues. The increase was led by 30% growth in the Americas region, partially offset by declines in the European and Asia Pacific regions. On a constant currency basis, the Network Equipment group grew 8%.

Network Equipment gross margin for the second quarter of 2011 was 56.0%, down from 59.2% in the second quarter of 2010 and up from 54.2% reported in the first quarter of 2011. Gross profit increased 9%, despite the year-over-year decline in gross margin, due to the 15% increase in revenue. OCS’s gross margin declined in comparison to the second quarter of 2010, which was unusually high. Gross margin at OCS was also unfavorably impacted by a $0.6 million one-time charge in cost of sales related to labor, warranty, and inventory write-downs associated with the exit of its of free-space optics product line. CES margins decreased 696 basis points due to the impact of substantial foreign currency fluctuations.

Product development and engineering costs increased from 15.7% to 18.3% of Network Equipment revenue due to increased product development projects, foreign currency impacts, and a one-time credit in the prior year. Network Equipment SG&A for the second quarter of 2011 was $10.0 million, an increase of $0.7 million, or 8% when compared to the second quarter of 2010. As a percentage of sales, SG&A was 29.7%, a decrease of 2.5 percentage points when compared with the second quarter of 2010 of 32.2%. When compared with the first quarter of 2011, SG&A increased by $1.6 million, or 19%.

The Network Equipment group reported operating income of $2.8 million for 2011, compared to $3.6 million for 2010. The $0.8 million decrease in operating income was due to the $2.4 million increase in operating expenses, partially offset by a $1.6 million increase in gross profit. Operating margin was 8.3% in 2011 and 12.2% in 2010.

Network Integration

MRV’s Network Integration operating segment reported revenue of $38.4 million, an increase of 21% when compared with revenue of $31.7 million in the second quarter of 2010. Revenue was favorably impacted by foreign currency exchange rates. Revenue growth on a constant currency basis was driven by a 19% increase at Alcadon AB due to strong sales of the OptiSwitch product line and significant growth with major customers, and a 19% increase at Interdata, which had several new customer wins and completed a major project. These increases were partially offset by a 6% decline at Tecnonet S.p.A. due to weakening in the Italian telecom market. On a constant currency basis, the Network Integration group grew 5%.

Network Integration gross margin for the second quarter of 2011 was 27.8%, essentially flat with gross margin of 27.5% in the second quarter of 2010 and up from 24.1% reported in the first quarter of 2011. The modest increase in gross margin was due to slightly higher margins at Alcadon and an increase in the proportion of revenues coming from Alcadon and Interdata which have higher margins than Tecnonet. Margins were adversely impacted by a small decline in margins at Interdata and Tecnonet. There was also a favorable foreign currency impact on gross profit of approximately $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2011.

Network Integration SG&A for the second quarter of 2011 was $6.2 million, a modest increase of $0.4 million, or 6%, when compared with $5.8 million reported in the second quarter of 2010. As a percentage of sales, SG&A was 16.2%, a decrease of 2.3 percentage points when compared with the second quarter of 2010, due to cost reduction efforts at all three business units. Reduced G&A expense was offset slightly by an increase in sales and marketing expense. When compared with 16.0% in the first quarter of 2011, SG&A was flat as a percentage of sales.

The Network Integration group reported operating income of $4.4 million for 2011, compared to operating income of $2.8 million for 2010. The $1.6 million increase was due to the $2.0 million increase in gross profit partially offset by a $0.4 million increase in operating expenses. The 11.5% operating margin in the second quarter of 2011 represented an improvement from 9.0% in the second quarter of 2010. Operating income would have been $0.6 million lower in 2011 had foreign currency exchange rates remained the same as they were in 2010.
