Cray Reports 2012 Full Year and Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Company Reports Record Revenue and Operating Income

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."

Outlook
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.

Recent Highlights

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.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
In his keynote at 18th Cloud Expo, Andrew Keys, Co-Founder of ConsenSys Enterprise, provided an overview of the evolution of the Internet and the Database and the future of their combination – the Blockchain. Andrew Keys is Co-Founder of ConsenSys Enterprise. He comes to ConsenSys Enterprise with capital markets, technology and entrepreneurial experience. Previously, he worked for UBS investment bank in equities analysis. Later, he was responsible for the creation and distribution of life sett...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
