Super Micro Computer, Inc. Announces 1st Quarter 2014 Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ:SMCI), a leader in application optimized, high performance server solutions, today announced first quarter fiscal 2014 financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Fiscal 1st Quarter Highlights

Net sales for the first quarter ended September 30, 2013 totaled $309.0 million, down 4.1% from $322.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013. No customer accounted for more than 10% of net sales during the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal year 2014 was $7.7 million or $0.17 per diluted share, an increase of 756.4% from the net income of $0.9 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the same period a year ago. Included in net income for the quarter is $2.6 million of stock-based compensation expense (pre-tax). Excluding this item and the related tax effect, non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $9.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $3.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, in the same quarter of the prior year. On a sequential basis, non-GAAP net income decreased from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 by $1.4 million or $0.04 per diluted share.

GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 15.1% compared to 12.9% in the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter was 15.2% compared to 13.0% in the same period a year ago. GAAP gross margin and Non-GAAP gross margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 were 14.3% and 14.4%, respectively.

The Company's cash and cash equivalents and short and long term investments at September 30, 2013 were $114.2 million compared to $95.7 million at June 30, 2013. Free cash flow for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $16.4 million, primarily due to a decrease in accounts receivable.

Business Outlook & Management Commentary

The Company expects net sales of $320 million to $350 million for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 ending December 31, 2013. The Company expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.25 to $0.31 for the second quarter.

"Our first quarter results continued our growth momentum for the start of this new fiscal year by growing revenue 14.2% year over year. Our FatTwin and MicroCloud solutions for data centers were in strong demand and our GPU, Xeon Phi and storage solutions continue to outperform the industry. We are pleased with our performance given the transition period ahead of new technology. We are also pleased that we are making good progress toward reaching our margin goals," said Charles Liang, Chairman and CEO. "Looking ahead, we are again first to market with the broadest array of new Ivy Bridge solutions in the industry and we will use this position together with our global foundation to take full advantage of the market share opportunities."

It is currently expected that the outlook will not be updated until the Company's next quarterly earnings announcement, notwithstanding subsequent developments. However, the Company may update the outlook or any portion thereof at any time. Such updates will take place only by way of a news release or other broadly disseminated disclosure available to all interested parties in accordance with Regulation FD.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP gross margin discussed in this press release excludes stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income and net income per share discussed in this press release exclude stock-based compensation expense and the related tax effect of the applicable items.

Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the Company's financial and operational performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, detailed reconciliations between the Company's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided at the end of this press release.
