Financial report summary

AdtranJuniper NetworksCalixZte
  • We may not have the liquidity to support our future operations and capital requirements.
  • We have experienced significant losses and we may incur losses in the future. If we fail to generate sufficient revenue to sustain our profitability, our stock price could decline.
  • In connection with the Keymile acquisition, we assumed certain of Keymile’s liabilities, which could harm our business, operations, financial condition, and liquidity.
  • The long and variable sales cycles for our products could cause revenue and operating results to vary significantly from quarter to quarter.
  • The market we serve is highly competitive and we may not be able to compete successfully.
  • Because our products are complex and are deployed in complex environments, our products may have defects that we discover only after full deployment by our customers, which could have a material adverse effect on our business.
  • Sales to communications service providers are especially volatile, and weakness in sales orders from this industry could harm our business, operations, financial condition and liquidity.
  • We depend on a limited source of suppliers for several key components. If we are unable to obtain these components on a timely basis, we will be unable to meet our customers’ product delivery requirements, which would harm our business.
  • We rely on the availability of third-party licenses.
  • Our intellectual property rights could prove difficult to protect and enforce.
  • There are additional risks to our intellectual property as a result of our international business operations.
  • Claims that our current or future products or components contained in our products infringe the intellectual property rights of others may be costly and time consuming to defend and could adversely affect our ability to sell our products.
  • We face exposure to foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations.
  • The telecommunications networking business requires the application of complex revenue and expense recognition rules and the regulatory environment affecting generally accepted accounting principles is uncertain. Changes in financial accounting standards or practices may cause adverse, unexpected financial reporting fluctuations and harm our business.
  • Changes in government regulations related to our business could harm our operations, financial condition, and liquidity.
  • Industry consolidation may lead to increased competition and could harm our operating results.
  • DASAN Networks, Inc. (“DNI”) owns a significant amount of our outstanding common stock and has the ability to exert significant influence or control over any matters that require stockholder approval, including the election of directors and the approval of certain transactions, and DNI’s interests may conflict with our interests and the interests of other stockholders.
  • There is a limited public market of our common stock.
  • We do not expect to declare or pay dividends in the foreseeable future.
  • We may need additional capital, and we cannot be certain that additional financing will be available.
  • Our future operating results are difficult to predict and our stock price may continue to be volatile.
  • Strategic acquisitions or investments that we have made or that we could pursue or make in the future may disrupt our operations and harm our business, operations, financial condition, and liquidity.
  • If demand for our products and solutions does not develop as we anticipate, then our business operations, financial condition, and liquidity will be adversely affected.
  • We rely on contract manufacturers for a portion of our manufacturing requirements.
  • We face supply chain risk, and our failure to estimate customer demand properly could result in excess or obsolete component inventories that could adversely affect our gross margins.
  • The loss of a key customer or a significant deterioration in the financial condition of a key customer could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations.
  • Decreased effectiveness of share-based compensation could adversely affect our ability to attract and retain employees.
  • Our success largely depends on our ability to retain and recruit key personnel, and any failure to do so could harm our ability to meet key objectives.
  • Our collection, processing, storage, use, and transmission of personal data could give rise to liabilities as a result of governmental regulation, increasing legal requirements.
  • Compliance or the failure to comply with current and future environmental regulations could cause us significant expense.
  • Failure to comply with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar laws associated with our international activities could subject us to significant civil or criminal penalties.
  • Our business and future operating results are subject to global economic and market conditions.
  • Future issuances of additional equity securities could result in dilution of existing stockholders’ equity ownership.
Management Discussion
  • During 2021, the Company appointed several industry leaders to new roles within the DZS executive team. These appointments, among others, include Misty Kawecki as Chief Financial Officer and Jennifer Yohe as Chief Operations Officer. Each brings a deep history of experience in our markets.
  • In the first quarter of 2021, the Company made the strategic decision to transition DZS GmbH, formerly Keymile GmbH, a subsidiary of the Company located in Germany, to a sales and research and development center. On July 15, 2021, the Company came to an agreement with the works council and entered into a social plan that covers statutory benefits and one-time severance obligations. The Company incurred related restructuring and other charges of approximately $11.9 million in 2021, consisting primarily of termination-related benefits and impairment of long-lived assets. DZS GmbH reduced headcount by approximately 100 employees. The restructuring was essentially completed in the fourth quarter of 2021.  
  • On March 3, 2021, the Company acquired substantially all of the assets of RIFT, Inc., a network automation solutions company, including all the outstanding shares of RIFT.IO India Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of RIFT, Inc. (collectively “RIFT”). RIFT developed a carrier-grade RIFT.ware software platform that simplifies the deployment of any slice, service, or application on any cloud. The total purchase consideration was $0.5 million, including a $0.2 million holdback that was released in April of 2021 following the fulfillment of certain requirements in the purchase agreement.
