Tellabs Q4 Revenue Rises 3% to $469 Million

Tellabs reported Q4 2007 revenue of $469 million, up 3% from $455 million in the fourth quarter of 2006. For the year 2007, Tellabs revenue totaled $1.9 billion, down 6% from $2.0 billion in 2006. Tellabs earned $6 million or 1 cent per share in the fourth quarter of 2007 on a GAAP basis, down 78% from $29 million or 7 cents per share in the fourth quarter of 2006.


Tellabs also announced a plan to reduce operating expenses. Under this plan, together with the restructuring announced in September 2007, Tellabs expects to achieve $100 million in savings by the end of 2008. Reductions include $75 million from annual operating expenses and $25 million from overhead costs of products and services.


Included in the $100 million plan are future workforce reductions of approximately 225 employees, in addition to 125 employees who were affected by the September restructuring. Under this plan, Tellabs will take charges of $12 million to $14 million during 2008, including approximately $8 million in the first quarter of 2008.


"Last year, nearly half of Tellabs revenue came from new products added since 2003," said Krish A. Prabhu, Tellabs president and chief executive officer. "Gross profit margins are trending up, and Tellabs' plan will reduce annual costs and operating expenses by $100 million. Unfortunately, implementation of the plan will impact Tellabs' workforce."
