SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/14/13 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced financial results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012. For 2012, Cray reported total revenue of $421.1 million, which compares with $236.0 million for 2011. Net income for 2012 was $161.2 million, or $4.27 per share, compared to $14.3 million, or $0.40 per share, for 2011. Income from operations for 2012 was $168.1 million compared to $1.2 million for 2011.
All figures in this release are based on U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables in this press release.
Non-GAAP net income, which adjusts for selected unusual and non-cash items (including the $139.1 million pre-tax gain from the Intel transaction), was $33.3 million, or $0.88 per share, for 2012, compared to non-GAAP net income of $4.7 million, or $0.13 per share, for 2011.
For the fourth quarter of 2012, revenue was $188.8 million compared to $91.6 million in the prior year period. The Company reported net income for the fourth quarter of $14.0 million, or $0.36 per share, compared to $31.0 million, or $0.85 per share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income was $17.2 million, or $0.44 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to non-GAAP net income of $17.1 million, or $0.47 per share for the same period last year.
Overall gross profit margin for 2012 was 36 percent compared to 40 percent in 2011. Product margin for 2012 was 35 percent, consistent with 2011 results; service margin for 2012 was 43 percent compared to 49 percent for 2011.
Operating expenses for 2012 were $122.2 million compared to $93.2 million in 2011. Compared to 2011, 2012 operating expenses were impacted by higher incentive based compensation, increased investments in our storage and big data initiatives, fewer R&D co-funding credits and additional expenses which resulted from our acquisition of Appro International.
As of December 31, 2012, cash and investments totaled $323 million.
"We had a great year across the board in 2012, highlighted by the completion of the largest supercomputer and storage system in our company's history," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "We grew substantially in 2012, posting record revenue and operating profit for the year, and have put ourselves on a path to continue to grow faster than our overall market. With our new cluster solutions and XC30 supercomputer, we've expanded our offerings in the supercomputing market, while our storage and Big Data products continue to gain momentum with new customers. I'm excited about our prospects for 2013 and what we're building for the future."
While a wide range of results remains possible for 2013, we expect revenue to be approximately $500 million for the year. Revenue is expected to ramp quarterly during 2013 with roughly $70 million in the first quarter and about 45% of the annual revenue expected in the fourth quarter. For 2013, overall gross margins are anticipated to be in the mid-30% range. Total operating expenses for 2013 are expected to be in the range of $160 million, which includes approximately $8 million in stock-based compensation and amortization of purchased intangibles. Based on this outlook, we expect to be profitable for 2013.
The Company's 2013 effective income tax rate is currently projected to be about 40% but is dependent on a number of variables. Based on this outlook, due to the Company's substantial net operating loss carryforwards, annual income tax provision is expected to be largely non-cash and our effective cash-tax rate is expected to be 8-10%.
Actual results for any future period are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray's business.
- In January, Cray announced a $23 million contract to provide two Cray XC30 supercomputers and Sonexion 1600 storage systems to Germany's National Meteorological Service -- the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD), one of the world's premier numerical weather prediction centers.
- In December, Cray announced it was awarded a $39 million contract from the North-German Supercomputing Alliance (HLRN) to deliver a distributed Cray XC30 supercomputing system, which will be operated at sites in Berlin and Hannover, Germany.
- In the first quarter of 2013, the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center (PSC) launched its uRiKA graph-analytics appliance from YarcData for efficiently discovering unknown relationships in extremely large and complex bodies of information. Funded through the Strategic Technologies for Cyberinfrastructure program of the National Science Foundation, "Sherlock" features innovative hardware and software, as well as PSC-specific enhancements, designed to extend the range of applicability to scales not otherwise feasible.
- In November, Cray completed the acquisition of Appro International, Inc.
- In November, Cray expanded its Sonexion storage product line with the launch of the Cray Sonexion 1600 system. This next generation of Cray's integrated storage appliance offers substantial improvements in performance, density, installation time and ease of use.
- In November, Cray announced the completion of the final milestone of its Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) contract related to the development of its next generation "Cascade" supercomputer. Cray began shipping this system as the Cray XC30 supercomputer late in 2012.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains "non-GAAP financial measures" under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results is included in the financial tables included in this press release. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating Cray's financial and operational performance in the same way that the management evaluates the company's financial performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, as they exclude the financial impact of transactions necessary or advisable for the conduct of Cray's business, such as the granting of equity compensation awards, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Hence, to compensate for these limitations, management does not review these non-GAAP financial metrics in isolation from its GAAP results, nor should investors.
Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This non-GAAP information supplements, and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with, or disclosures, required by generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP numbers at the end of this release, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this non-GAAP information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in Cray's SEC filings.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.

You know, where everyday objects have software, chips, and sensors to capture data and report back. Household items like refrigerators, toilets and thermostats along with clothing, cars and soon, the entire home will be connected. Many of these devices provide actionable data - or just fun entertainment - so people can make decisions about whatever is being monitored. It can also help save lives.
