QLogic Reports Third Quarter Results for Fiscal Year 2012

QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced its third quarter financial results for the period ended January 1, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net revenue: $152.7 million
  • GAAP net income: $30.0 million or $0.30 per diluted share
  • Non-GAAP net income: $36.3 million or $0.36 per diluted share
  • Operating margin: 21.9% GAAP, 27.9% non-GAAP
  • Cash generated from operations: $52.3 million

Financial Results

Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $152.7 million compared to $155.8 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Host Products was $112.7 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $113.5 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Network Products was $24.4 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 compared to $28.9 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Silicon Products increased to $12.4 million during the third quarter of fiscal 2012 from $10.6 million in the same quarter last year.

Net income on a GAAP basis for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $30.0 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, compared to $50.3 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. Net income on a non-GAAP basis for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 was $36.3 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared to $57.2 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2011. The GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share amounts for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 include the benefits associated with the retroactive reinstatement of the federal research tax credit and other third-quarter specific income tax items, which contributed $0.13 to net income per diluted share.

“We are very pleased with our strong financial performance and execution during the third quarter. Our revenue of $152.7 million was at the upper end of our guidance range and I am particularly pleased with our revenue from Host Products, which grew 7 percent sequentially due to strength in Fibre Channel and converged adapters,” said Simon Biddiscombe, president and chief executive officer, QLogic. “As announced earlier this week, we entered into a definitive agreement to sell substantially all of the assets associated with our InfiniBand business. We believe this transaction will allow us to sharpen our focus on our core business and the growth opportunities in the data center with converged networking, enterprise Ethernet and storage area networking products.”

QLogic uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements based on GAAP. A summary of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as a description of the reasons that management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and the additional purposes for which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, is presented in the accompanying financial schedules.

QLogic’s fiscal 2012 third quarter conference call is scheduled for today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time). Simon Biddiscombe, president and chief executive officer, and Jean Hu, senior vice president and chief financial officer, will host the conference call.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein are a supplement to the corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures presented exclude the items summarized in the above table. Management believes that adjustments for these items assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that these items are not indicative of the company’s on-going core operating performance.

The company has presented non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share, on a basis consistent with its historical presentation, to assist investors in understanding the company’s core net income and core net income per diluted share on an on-going basis. These non-GAAP financial measures may also assist investors in making comparisons of the company’s core net profitability with historical periods and comparisons of the company’s core net profitability with the corresponding results for competitors. Management believes that non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share are important measures in the evaluation of the company’s profitability. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the adjustments described in the above table, and thus provide an overall measure of the company’s on-going net profitability and related profitability on a per diluted share basis.

Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in its evaluation of the company’s core after-tax results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. In addition, the company prepares and maintains its budgets and forecasts for future periods on a basis consistent with these non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors to view the company’s financial results in the way that management views the financial results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures and why the company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, the company refers you to the Form 8-K regarding this release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A summary of the non-GAAP adjustments presented in the table above by the financial statement line impacted is as follows:
