“Fiscal 2015 was a transformational year for GigOptix. We delivered tremendous revenue growth and profitability while further enhancing all our financial metrics. These results further validate the success of the actions we have taken in the last few years to grow our Company through intensive organic development coupled with strategic investments and acquisitions. Through swift commercialization of innovative new products, we continue to solidify our strong leadership position in our served markets, with the strongest performance coming from our domination in the fast-growing 40Gbps and 100Gbps datacom portion of the High-Speed Communications market,” said Dr. Avi Katz, Founder, Chairman and CEO of GigOptix, Inc. “In fiscal 2016, we will enter new growth markets and extend our dominance in the High-Speed Communications area, to be an enabler of high-speed information streaming from end-to-end over the network, driving cloud connectivity at the enterprise and in the consumer links. Through the full integration of all past acquisitions, and the organic development of differentiating devices, we are now strongly positioned to further increase our cloud-based links market-share by delivering a complete suite of 100Gbps devices for all datacom solutions used for Ethernet, Fiber Channel, and InfiniBand Web2.0 mega-Data Center connectivity. In the first half of calendar 2016 we plan to release a complete 100Gbps chip set to provide a one stop shop solution for the short-reach (SR) and long-reach (LR) datacom links, including CDR and DML devices, alongside our industry leading 100Gbps VCSEL TIA and drivers, which have been available in production volumes for quite some time. As the largest merchant supplier of 40Gbps solutions for the datacom market, and with significant market penetration already in place, we are confident of remaining a leader when the market moves to 100Gbps speeds, as early as calendar 2017,” said Dr. Katz.

“We also maintained our strong position in sales of coherent 100Gbps telecom products, while introducing new, leading-edge products addressing all devices required for terrestrial 200Gbps and 400Gbps Metro and Long-haul limiting and linear applications. It is our expectation that the 100Gbps Metro buildouts will commence in 2016 and last for several years. We see this as a solid revenue opportunity and fully expect to be a main supplier for this next generation telecom infrastructure,” said Dr. Katz. “In the RF market, the high-speed point-to-point backhaul E-band infrastructure is moving to the advanced qualification stage with the belief that the small and micro-cell infrastructure initial installation will commence this year. In addition, we are expanding our activities to address the next generation of technologies both for outdoor and indoor connectivity. We are currently engaged with several potential customers worldwide who are evaluating our products and hope to see some traction this year. We also remain confident in the outlook for our highly profitable Industrial ASIC business, where we delivered several significant contract wins in 2015, and more importantly, accelerated the transition from our legacy products to the fast growing families of wireless and Wi-Fi CMOS low-power and ultra-wide bandwidth devices, which are key components for a variety of emerging applications such as the Internet-of-Things (IOT).

“Most importantly, I am delighted that GigOptix has delivered significant value to our shareholders. In 2015, we more than quadrupled non-GAAP earnings per diluted share to $0.19, up from $0.04 in 2014. Based on our continuous growth during the last year, and with the outlook of our customers and today’s backlog, we are confident that we will see yet another strong year of growth in 2016, which should result in another year of improving shareholder value,” said Dr. Katz.

Financial Outlook

“After producing record financial results in fiscal 2015, we are excited about our growth outlook for fiscal 2016. We currently expect revenue in the first quarter will be in-line with, to slightly up, compared with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, representing growth of approximately 23 percent from the first quarter last year, and countering the normal seasonal trends that are common in our industry,” said Dr. Katz. “For the fiscal year, while we are still in the early stages of 2016, it is our current expectation that we will again generate double digit revenue growth for the fourth consecutive year. Our initial projection is for revenue of approximately $46.0 million, representing growth of about 14 percent over fiscal 2015, while at the same time delivering another year of profitability.”
