SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in storage, networking, and connectivity semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2017, ended October 29, 2016.  Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 were $654 million which exceeded the Company's guidance provided on September 6, 2016.

GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $73 million, or $0.14 per share (diluted). Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2017 was $105 million, or $0.20 per share (diluted). Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $121 million.

"Marvell delivered strong financial performance in Q3," said Matt Murphy, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our core businesses performed very well, with data storage and network infrastructure growing double digits year-over-year. I'm very pleased with the performance of our team." 

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2017 Financial Outlook
On November 2, 2016, Marvell announced restructuring actions to drive growth and improve profitability.  These actions are expected to be fully implemented by the end of October 2017 and are expected to lower annual operating expenses from a current annualized run rate of $1.08 billion to the $820-840 million range.  As a result of these actions, the Company expects to incur charges of $90 million to $110 million over the next four quarters, including cash charges of $35 million to $50 million. Restructuring and restructuring-related charges include an estimate of severance, asset impairment, lease termination fees, and other costs.  We expect to incur a portion of these charges in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

Marvell's fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 financial outlook also excludes the estimated results of certain non-strategic businesses that have a first half of fiscal 2017 annualized run rate of approximately $100 million in revenue and $60 million in operating expenses.  These businesses will be classified as discontinued operations beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. In addition, Marvell's financial outlook does not include the potential impact of certain items such as share repurchases, acquisitions or divestitures, or further restructuring activities that may be completed after November 16, 2016.

  • Revenue is expected to be $565 million plus or minus 2%, excluding discontinued operations and reflecting normal seasonality.
  • GAAP and Non-GAAP Gross Margins are expected to be in the range of 57% to 58%.
  • GAAP Operating Expenses are expected to be $322 million to $332 million, which includes part of the restructuring charges announced on November 2, 2016.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Expenses are expected to be $225 million to $235 million.
  • GAAP Diluted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of ($0.01) to $0.03.
  • Non-GAAP Diluted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $0.17 to $0.21.

Conference Call
Marvell will conduct a conference call on Thursday, November 17, 2016 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the third quarter of fiscal 2017. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1-844-647-5488 or 1-615-247-0258, pass-code 11983150.  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 17, 2016.    

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of share-based compensation expense, amortization and write-off of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other  related charges, litigation settlement, 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 operating performance. Non-GAAP diluted 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 diluted net income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of share-based compensation expected to be incurred in future periods but not yet recognized in the financial statements. The expected compensation costs are treated as additional proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method. 

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. Marvell expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the Non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from Marvell's Non-GAAP net income should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
