Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Reports First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results
- Q1 Revenue: $694 million
- Q1 Gross Margin: 47.1% GAAP gross margin; 62.8% non-GAAP gross margin
- Q1 Diluted income (loss) per share: $(0.17) GAAP diluted loss per share; $0.18 non-GAAP diluted income per share
- Cash and short-term investments: $668 million

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in infrastructure semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2021.

Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $694 million, which exceeded the midpoint of the Company's guidance provided on March 4, 2020. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $(113) million, or $(0.17) per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 was $118 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter was $176 million.

"In a challenging environment, solid execution by the Marvell team drove strong first quarter financial results with disciplined operating expense management, healthy operating cash flow, and revenue above the mid-point of guidance, enabled by stronger demand for our networking products from the datacenter and 5G infrastructure end markets," said Matt Murphy, Marvell's President and CEO. "While we did experience some COVID-19 supply chain impacts on our storage business in the first quarter, we expect a bounce back in the second quarter and we project our networking business to continue to grow."

Marvell's second quarter guidance takes into account the U.S. Government's export restrictions on certain Chinese customers. Given the ongoing uncertainty associated with COVID-19 and related public health measures, we also have temporarily widened the guidance range on revenue.

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2021 Financial Outlook

  • Revenue is expected to be $720 million +/- 5%.
  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 50.6%.
  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 63%.
  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $393 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $300 million.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share is expected to be $(0.10) to $(0.02) per share.
  • Non-GAAP diluted income per share is expected to be $0.17 to $0.23 per share.

Conference Call
Marvell will conduct a conference call on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the first quarter of fiscal 2021. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1-844-647-5488 or 1-615-247-0258, pass-code 8949798. The call will be webcast and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until Thursday, June 4, 2020.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of share-based compensation expense, amortization of the inventory fair value adjustment associated with the Aquantia and Avera acquisitions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition and divestiture-related costs, restructuring and other related charges, resolution of legal matters, and certain expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core business.

Marvell uses a non-GAAP tax rate to compute the non-GAAP tax provision. This non-GAAP tax rate is based on Marvell's estimated annual GAAP income tax forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating Marvell's non-GAAP income, as well as the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which vary in size and frequency. Marvell's non-GAAP tax rate is determined on an annual basis and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events that may materially affect the non-GAAP tax rate such as tax law changes; significant changes in Marvell's geographic mix of revenue and expenses; or changes to Marvell's corporate structure. For the first quarter of fiscal 2021, a non-GAAP tax rate of 5.0% has been applied to the non-GAAP financial results.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides 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, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. 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.

Externally, management believes that investors may find Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures useful in their assessment of Marvell's operating performance and the valuation of Marvell. Internally, Marvell's non-GAAP financial measures are used in the following areas:

  • Management's evaluation of Marvell's operating performance;
  • Management's establishment of internal operating budgets;
  • Management's performance comparisons with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and
  • Management's determination of the achievement and measurement of certain performance-based equity awards (adjustments may vary from award to award).

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of Marvell's business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Marvell's results as reported under GAAP. The exclusion of the above items from our GAAP financial metrics does not necessarily mean that these costs are unusual or infrequent.
