Juniper Networks Reports Preliminary Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2017 Financial Results

January 30, 2018

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 30, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR), an industry leader in automated, scalable and secure networks, today reported preliminary financial results for the three months and twelve months ended December 31, 2017 and provided its outlook for the three months ending March 31, 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Performance

Net revenues were $1,239.5 million, a decrease of 11% year-over-year and 1% sequentially.

GAAP operating margin was 16.4%, a decrease from 20.7% in the fourth quarter of 2016, and a decrease from 18.4% in the third quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP operating margin was 22.7%, a decrease from 26.5% in the fourth quarter of 2016, and a decrease from 23.5% in the third quarter of 2017.

GAAP net loss was $148.1 million, a decrease of 178% year-over-year and 189% sequentially, resulting in diluted loss per share of $0.40. GAAP net loss was primarily due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which resulted in an estimated $289.5 million of tax expense.

Non-GAAP net income was $199.4 million, a decrease of 22% year-over-year and 6% sequentially, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.53.

Full Year 2017 Financial Performance

Net revenues were $5,027.2 million, an increase of 1% year-over-year.

GAAP operating margin was 16.9%, a decrease from 17.8% in fiscal year 2016.

Non-GAAP operating margin was 22.8%, a decrease from 23.4% in fiscal year 2016.

GAAP net income was $306.2 million, a decrease of 48% year-over-year, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $0.80, a decrease of 48% year-over-year. The change in GAAP net income was primarily due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which resulted in an estimated $289.5 million of tax expense.

Non-GAAP net income was $809.0 million, flat year-over-year, resulting in diluted earnings per share of $2.11, an increase of 1% year-over-year.

The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP results of operations is provided in a table immediately following the Preliminary Net Revenues by Geographic Region table below.

“We continue to lead the way in helping our customers build more automated, cost efficient, scalable networks," said Rami Rahim, chief executive officer, Juniper Networks. "We believe strongly that we have the right product portfolio in place to win in this dynamic market.”

Balance Sheet and Other Financial Results

Total cash, cash equivalents, and investments as of December 31, 2017 were $4,021.0 million, compared to $3,657.3 million as of December 31, 2016, and $4,199.3 million as of September 30, 2017.

Net cash flows provided by operations for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $214.2 million, compared to $335.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, and $201.9 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Days sales outstanding in accounts receivable, or “DSO,” was 62 days in the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to 68 days in the fourth quarter of 2016, and 52 days in the third quarter of 2017.

Capital expenditures were $53.6 million and depreciation and amortization expense was $55.0 million during the fourth quarter of 2017.

The Company today announced an expansion of its capital return plan. Juniper's Board of Directors has approved a new $2 billion buyback authorization, and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.18 per share to be paid on March 22, 2018 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 1, 2018. Additional details can be found in the press release issued today at http://investor.juniper.net/investor-relations/default.aspx.

Outlook

These metrics are provided on a non-GAAP basis, except for revenue and share count. Earnings per share is on a fully diluted basis. The outlook assumes that the exchange rate of the U.S. dollar to other currencies will remain relatively stable at current levels.

The first quarter revenue outlook reflects ongoing deployment delays as Juniper expects its large cloud customers to continue their architectural transition, which is expected to result in below normal seasonality. The Company remains confident in its competitive position and strong relationship with these strategic customers.

Beyond the first quarter, Juniper expects revenue to grow on a sequential basis and return to year-on-year growth by the end of the year.

The Company expects gross margins for the quarter to remain under pressure, due to lower volume and product mix, resulting from the architectural shifts discussed above. The Company expects full year margins to improve directionally from Q1'18 levels.

Juniper expects to manage operating expenses prudently and to increase operational efficiencies, both in the first quarter and throughout the year.

As a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the Company plans to repatriate approximately $3 billion. Juniper expects the new territorial tax system to provide lower cost access to nearly all global free cash flow on an ongoing basis. The Company intends to use the repatriated cash to invest in its business, support value-enhancing M&A, and fund its return of capital to shareholders.

Juniper's guidance for the quarter ending March 31, 2018 is as follows:

  • Revenues will be approximately $1,050 million, plus or minus $30 million.

  • Non-GAAP gross margin will be approximately 58.0%, plus or minus 1.0%.

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses will be approximately $485 million, plus or minus $5 million.

  • Non-GAAP operating margin will be approximately 12.0% at the midpoint of revenue guidance.

  • Non-GAAP tax rate will be approximately 21.0%.

  • Non-GAAP net income per share will be approximately $0.25, plus or minus $0.03. This assumes a share count of approximately 360 million.

The guidance above is provided under ASC 605. Juniper will adopt ASC 606 for Q1'18 and intends to provide a ASC 606 to 605 reconciliation when it reports Q1 results.

All forward-looking non-GAAP measures exclude estimates for amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses, acquisition-related charges, restructuring charges, impairment charges, litigation settlement and resolution charges, supplier component remediation charges and recoveries, gain or loss on equity investments, retroactive impact of certain tax settlements, significant effects of tax legislation and judicial or administrative interpretation of tax regulations, including the impact of income tax reform, non-recurring income tax adjustments, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP exclusions, and do not include the impact of any future acquisitions, divestitures, or joint ventures that may occur in the period. Juniper is unable to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the overall high variability and low visibility of most of the foregoing items that have been excluded. For example, share-based compensation expense is impacted by the Company’s future hiring needs, the type and volume of equity awards necessary for such future hiring, and the price at which the Company’s stock will trade in those future periods. Amortization of intangible assets is significantly impacted by the timing and size of any future acquisitions. The items that are being excluded are difficult to predict and a reconciliation could result in disclosure that would be imprecise or potentially misleading. Material changes to any one of these items could have a significant effect on our guidance and future GAAP results. Certain exclusions, such as amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expenses, are generally incurred each quarter, but the amounts have historically and may continue to vary significantly from quarter to quarter.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release, including the tables above, includes the following non-GAAP financial measures derived from our Preliminary Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations: operating income; operating margin; net income; and diluted net income per share. These measures are not presented in accordance with, nor are they a substitute for GAAP. In addition, these measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, limiting their usefulness for comparison purposes. The non-GAAP financial measures used in the table above should not be considered in isolation from measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. In particular, certain of the adjustments to our GAAP financial measures reflect the exclusion of items that are recurring and will be reflected in our financial results for the foreseeable future.

We utilize a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions, forecasting and planning for future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs. We consider the use of the non-GAAP measures presented above to be helpful in assessing the performance of the continuing operation of our business. By continuing operation, we mean the ongoing revenue and expenses of the business, excluding certain items that render comparisons with prior periods or analysis of on-going operating trends more difficult, such as expenses not directly related to the actual cash costs of development, sale, delivery or support of our products and services, or expenses that are reflected in periods unrelated to when the actual amounts were incurred or paid. Consistent with this approach, we believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of our financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, allows for greater transparency in the review of our financial and operational performance. In addition, we have historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community and believe that continuing to provide non-GAAP measures provides investors with a tool for comparing results over time. In assessing the overall health of our business for the periods covered by the table above and, in particular, in evaluating the financial line items presented in the table above, we have excluded items in the following three general categories, each of which are described below: Acquisition-Related Charges, Other Items, and Share-Based Compensation Related Items. We also provide additional detail below regarding the shares used to calculate our non-GAAP net income per share. Notes identified for line items in the table above correspond to the appropriate note description below. With respect to the items excluded from our forward-looking non-GAAP measures and reconciliation of such measures, please see the “Outlook” section above.

Note A: Acquisition-Related Charges. We exclude certain expense items resulting from acquisitions including amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions. The amortization of purchased intangible assets associated with our acquisitions results in our recording expenses in our GAAP financial statements that were already expensed by the acquired company before the acquisition and for which we have not expended cash. Moreover, had we internally developed the products acquired, the amortization of intangible assets, and the expenses of uncompleted research and development would have been expensed in prior periods. Accordingly, we analyze the performance of our operations in each period without regard to such expenses. In addition, acquisitions result in non-continuing operating expenses, which would not otherwise have been incurred by us in the normal course of our business operations. We believe that providing non-GAAP information for acquisition-related expense items in addition to the corresponding GAAP information allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our continuing operations, and also facilitates comparisons to less acquisitive peer companies.

Note B: Other Items. We exclude certain other items that are the result of either unique or unplanned events, including the following, when applicable: (i) restructuring charges; (ii) litigation settlement charges; (iii) supplier component remediation recovery or charges; (iv) gain or loss on equity investments; (v) significant effects of tax legislation and judicial or administrative interpretation of tax regulations, including the impact of income tax reform; (vi) the income tax effect on our financial statements of excluding items related to our non-GAAP financial measures. It is difficult to estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financial statements, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. Restructuring charges result from events that arise from unforeseen circumstances, which often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations. These expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing business operations for the period in which they are incurred. In the case of legal settlements, these gains or losses are recorded in the period in which the matter is concluded or resolved even though the subject matter of the underlying dispute may relate to multiple or different periods. As such, we believe that these expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing operations for the period in which they are incurred. Additionally, supplier component remediation recovery and charges are directly related to an event that is distinct and does not reflect normal business operations. Whether we realize gains or losses on equity investments is based primarily on the performance and market value of those independent companies. Accordingly, we believe that these gains and losses do not reflect the underlying performance of our continuing operations. Additionally, the impact of certain income tax reform, including the revaluation of our deferred tax assets and liabilities and the deemed repatriation of accumulated foreign earnings, are unique events that occur in periods that are generally unrelated to the level of business activity to which such tax reform or legislation applies. We believe this limits comparability with prior periods and that these expenses do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing business operations for the period in which they are incurred. We also believe providing financial information with and without the income tax effect of excluding items related to our non-GAAP financial measures provide our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the on-going performance and future liquidity of our business. Because of these factors, we assess our operating performance with these amounts both included and excluded, and by providing this information, we believe the users of our financial statements are better able to understand the financial results of what we consider our continuing operations.

Note C: Share-Based Compensation Related Items. We provide non-GAAP information relative to our expense for share-based compensation and related payroll tax. Due to the varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types, which affect the calculations of share-based compensation, we believe that the exclusion of share-based compensation and related payroll tax allows for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to our peer companies and is useful to investors to understand the impact of share-based compensation to our results of operations. Further, expense associated with granting share-based awards does not reflect any cash expenditures by the company as no cash is expended.

Note D: Non-GAAP Net Income Per Share Items. We provide diluted non-GAAP net income per share. The diluted non-GAAP net income per share includes additional dilution from potential issuance of common stock, except when such issuances would be anti-dilutive.

________________________________

(*) During the first quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company adopted the new accounting pronouncement on Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, requiring excess tax benefits to be presented as an operating activity in the consolidated statements of cash flows. The Company applied this provision on a retrospective basis. For the year ended  December 31, 2016, the Company reclassified $6.7 million of excess tax benefits from share-based compensation to operating activities from financing activities. In addition, certain other amounts for the year ended  December 31, 2016 have been reclassified to conform to the current-period presentation.
