Infinera sees Q3 EPS (7c)-(3c), consensus (2c)

Sees Q3 revenue $200M-$220M, consensus $209.8M. The company said: "We expect several new customer footprint deployments in the third quarter of 2018. We expect these new deployments will drive multi-year revenue growth and strong margins moving forward. However, as is typical with new deployments of network infrastructure, these will have lower margins initially."

Infinera upgraded to Outperform at Northland on added Coriant opportunity
As reported earlier, Northland analyst Tim Savageaux upgraded Infinera to Outperform from Market Perform with a $12 price target, saying the calculus of his March downgrade changes with the acquisition of Coriant, giving the company a double-digit market share in 100G+ optical systems. The analyst also sees the deal price as "attractive" at 0.6-times revenue and the model as "viable" even with conservative synergy assumptions and Infinera's prior acquisition integration challenges.

Positives of Infinera deal 'meaningfully' outweigh risks, says William Blair
William Blair analyst Dmitry Netis believes the positives of Infinera's (INFN) acquisition of Coriant "meaningfully" outweigh the risks. If nothing else, the deal takes out a "nonsensical price disrupter from the market," Netis tells investors in a research note. The deal could be also very accretive, if management can execute, which is "no slam dunk," the analyst adds. His first cut pro forma model yields pro forma earnings per share of 78c by 2020 and $1.25 by 2021. Using a 15 times multiple on $1.25 in EPS in 2021, discounted back three years at 15%, yields a fair value of Infinera shares in the low- to mid-teens, Netis writes. He keeps an Outperform rating on Infinera. He also believes Ciena (CIEN) will trade up on the news while Acacia Communications (ACIA) may be pressured given customer consolidation, potential for greater discounting through longer-term price contracts, and risks of vertical integration by Infinera.
