GAAP net revenue for fiscal 2016 was $906.3 million, with net loss of $(50.4) million, or $(0.22) per share which again included a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $91.4 million related to our Service Enablement segment.

- Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA customers represented 49.1%, 16.6% and 34.3%, respectively, of total net revenue for the quarter. Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA customers represented 51.1%, 18.3% and 30.6%, respectively, of total net revenue for the year ended July 2, 2016.
- As of July 2, 2016, the Company held $979.8 million in total cash and investments, which also includes marketable equity investments. During the fiscal quarter and year ended July 2, 2016, the Company sold 2.0 million shares and 4.5 million shares, respectively, of the 11.7 million shares of Lumentum common stock retained as part of the spin-off of Lumentum. The Company generated net proceeds from these sales of $48.5 million and $109.7 million, respectively.
- During the fiscal quarter and year ended July 2, 2016, the Company generated $17.9 million and $52.9 million of cash from operations, respectively.
- The Company adjusted its current and historical Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and reportable segment information to reflect the spin-off of the Lumentum business (formerly the Company’s communications and commercial optical products business segment and WaveReady product line) on August 1, 2015. The Lumentum business’ adjusted results are reflected as discontinued operations for the periods reported in the Company’s GAAP Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet and reportable segment information.
Business Outlook for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2017
For the first quarter of fiscal 2017 ending October 1, 2016, the Company expects non-GAAP net revenue to be $201 million to $217 million and non-GAAP earnings per share to be $0.06 to $0.08. With respect to our expectations above, the Company has not reconciled non-GAAP net income per share to GAAP net income (loss) per share in this press release because it is unable to provide a meaningful or accurate estimate of certain reconciling items described in the “Use of Non-GAAP (Adjusted) Financial Measures” section below and the information is not available without unreasonable effort as a result of the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing and/or amounts of certain items, including restructuring and related charges and gain on sale of investments. In addition, the Company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision that would be confusing or misleading to investors.
Recently Announced Restatement
The Company reported today on SEC Form 8-K that it will restate its previously issued financial statements for each of the quarters ended October 3, 2015, January 2, 2016 and April 2, 2016 (the “Restatement”). During the preparation of the Company’s fiscal 2016 Annual Report on Form 10-K, management determined that an error had occurred in the Company’s calculation of income taxes which resulted in: (a) an understatement of GAAP income tax expense of $2.1 million for the three months ended October 3, 2015, (b) an understatement of GAAP income tax expense of $2.3 million for the three months ended January 2, 2016, (c) an understatement of GAAP income tax expense of $4.4 million for the six months ended January 2, 2016, (d) an overstatement of GAAP income tax expense of $1.4 million for the three months ended April 2, 2016, and (e) an understatement of GAAP income tax expense of $3.0 million for the nine months ended April 2, 2016. The correction of these errors will result in a reduction of GAAP income tax expense as reported in this press release for the three months ended July 2, 2016 of $3.0 million and does not impact the full year fiscal 2016 results.
The error did not impact previously reported cash from operating activities or non-GAAP results. The Audit Committee concluded that the cumulative effect of the error in the six month period ended January 2, 2016 exceeded the threshold of materiality and warranted the Restatement.
The Company will amend its Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended October 3, 2015, January 2, 2016 and April 2, 2016 as soon as reasonably practicable. The amounts of the error described above are preliminary and subject to change prior to filing the amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. Any references to the prior periods reflect the Company’s financials as previously filed and have not been adjusted to correct the error described above.
The Company will discuss these results and other related matters at 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time on August 11, 2016 in a live webcast, which will also be archived for replay on the Company’s website at www.viavisolutions.com/investors. The Company will post supplementary slides outlining the Company’s latest financial results on www.viavisolutions.com/investors under the “Quarterly Results” section concurrently with this earnings press release. This press release is being furnished as a Current Report on Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and will be available at www.sec.gov.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These statements include any anticipation or guidance as to future financial performance, including future revenue, gross margin, operating expense, operating margin, profitability, cash flow and other financial metrics, as well as the impact and duration of certain trends and market conditions. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. In particular, the Company’s ability to predict future financial performance continues to be difficult due to, among other things: (a) continuing general limited visibility across many of our product lines; (b) quarter-over-quarter product mix fluctuations, which can materially impact profitability measures due to the broad gross margin ranges across our portfolio; (c) consolidations in our customer base; (d) customer purchasing delays as they assess or transition to new technologies and/or new architectures, which limit near-term demand visibility, and could negatively impact potential revenue; (e) continued decline of average selling prices across our businesses; (f) notable seasonality and a significant level of in-quarter book-and-ship business; (g) various product and manufacturing transfers, site consolidations and product discontinuances that have caused and may cause short-term disruptions; (h) the ability of our suppliers and contract manufacturers to meet production and delivery requirements to our forecasted demand; and (i) inherent uncertainty related to global markets and the effect of such markets on demand for our products. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected.
