Oclaro Announces Record Results For 2017

News

Annual revenue grows 47 percent with operating income of 20 percent but Q4 results are disappointing

Oclaro, an optical communications company, has announced record financial performance for the year 2017, with year-over-year revenue growth of 47 percent, and significantly higher profits.

"Our excellent results were driven by the strength of our 100G and beyond product portfolio whose revenue doubled over fiscal year 2016. The most significant growth came from our industry leading CFP2-ACO and QSFP28 product family," said Greg Dougherty, CEO, Oclaro.

"Our fourth quarter revenue, which reflected the anticipated impact of softness in China, was in line with our expectations. While revenue declined, we once again delivered very strong gross margin and operating profits.

"As we enter fiscal year 2018, we expect to see continued high demand for our 100G and beyond products in the Data Center and Metro Markets. We also expect to be able to maintain our strong margin performance in fiscal 2018," said Dougherty.
