Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Reports Third Fiscal Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Revenue: $781 Million, a 4 percent sequential decrease

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a global leader in integrated silicon solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended October 27, 2012.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100719/SF36559LOGO-b)

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $781 million, a 4 percent sequential decrease from $816 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, ended July 28, 2012, and a decrease of 18 percent from $950 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2012, ended October 29, 2011.  

GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $69 million, or $0.12 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $93 million, or $0.16 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of fiscal 2013, and $195 million, or $0.32 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.   

Non-GAAP net income was $113 million, or $0.20 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2013, compared with non-GAAP net income of $142 million, or $0.24 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and $244 million, or $0.40 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

"Our results in the third quarter were affected primarily by the slowdown in PC demand. Despite the near-term softness in PCs, we are focused on growing our overall storage business through share gains in HDDs and growth in SSDs," said Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Marvell's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We remain confident in our investments and multiple long-term growth opportunities. We also remain committed to returning cash to our shareholders through our share repurchase and dividend programs."

Marvell reports net income, basic and diluted net income per share, in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis as outlined below. Reconciliations of GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income for the three months ended October 27, 2012, July 28, 2012 and October 29, 2011 appear in the financial statements below. Non-GAAP net income, where applicable, excludes the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits. 

GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was 52 percent, compared to 53.2 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 56.6 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2012. 

Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was 52.3 percent, compared to 53.6 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 56.8 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Shares used to compute GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were 559 million shares, compared with 570 million shares in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 613 million shares in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Shares used to compute non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 were 578 million shares, compared with 587 million shares for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and 615 million shares for the third quarter of fiscal 2012.

Cash flow from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $137 million, compared to the $189 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and the $262 million reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Free cash flow for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 was $113 million, compared to the $174 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and the $239 million reported in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Free cash flow as presented above is defined as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures and purchases of IP licenses.  

Under the share repurchase program, Marvell repurchased approximately 23 million shares for a total of $203 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Over the past nine quarters, Marvell has repurchased and retired approximately 150 million shares, or about 22 percent, of its outstanding shares.

Marvell also paid a quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on October 4, 2012 to all shareholders of record as of September 13, 2012. Marvell intends to pay its next quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on December 21, 2012 to all shareholders of record as of December 13, 2012.

Marvell intends to pay a regular quarterly cash dividend on its common shares subject to, among other things, the best interests of its shareholders, its results of operations, cash balances and future cash requirements, financial condition, statutory requirements of Bermuda law, and other factors that the board of directors may deem relevant.

Conference Call
Marvell will be conducting a conference call on November 15, 2012 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1- 866-578-5771 or 1-617-213-8055, pass-code 32388248. The call will be webcast by Thomson Reuters and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until December 14, 2012. 

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core operating performance. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of stock-based compensation expected to be incurred in future periods but not yet recognized in the financial statements. The expected compensation costs are treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method and also include the dilutive/anti-dilutive effects of common stock options and restricted stock units. 

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Marvell's financial condition and results of operations. While Marvell uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance its understanding of certain aspects of its financial performance, Marvell does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial measures. Consistent with this approach, Marvell believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of its financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, allows for greater transparency in the review of its financial and operational performance. For further information regarding why Marvell believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to Marvell's Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the SEC. The Form 8-K is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov as well as on the Marvell website in the Investor Relations section at www.marvell.com.
