Additional results and notes

For the full year 2017, Finisar reported revenue of $1,449.3 million, versus $1,263.2 million a year earlier, with net income of $249.35 million, compared with net income of $35.19 million in fiscal year 2016.

Finisar noted that in the fourth quarter, sales of datacom products increased by $2.8 million (1.1%) compared to the third quarter, with sales of 100 Gbit/s QSFP28 transceivers for datacom applications up approximately 30% sequentially, but offset by lower demand for other datacom products, mainly 10 Gbit/s and below shortwave transceivers.

Sales of telecom products in the fourth quarter decreased by $20.2 million (18.2%) compared to the third quarter, primarily due to lower revenue from Chinese OEM customers and 3 months of annual telecom price erosion.

Outlook

For the first quarter of fiscal 2018, Finisar currently expects revenue in the range $330 to $350 million, representing a sequential decline of 4.9% at the midpoint.
