Supermicro Announces Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results

May 7, 2020 at 4:08 PM EDT

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 2020-- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal year 2020 ended March 31, 2020.

Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Highlights

  • Net sales of $772 million versus $871 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and $744 million in the same quarter of last year.
  • Gross margin of 17.3% versus 15.9% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and 15.1% in the same quarter of last year.
  • Net income of $16 million versus $24 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and $11 million in the same quarter of last year.
  • Diluted net income per common share of $0.29 versus $0.46 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and $0.21 in the same quarter of last year.
  • Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share of $0.84 versus $0.57 in the second quarter of fiscal year 2020 and $0.49 in the same quarter of last year.
  • Cash flow used in operations of $21 million and capital expenditures of $11 million.

Income from operations in the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 benefited by a $10.1 million settlement fee related to a joint product development agreement. After the related tax effect, GAAP and non-GAAP net income per common share on a diluted basis benefited by $0.14.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was 17.7%, which adds back stock-based compensation expenses of $0.4 million and one-time employee performance bonuses of $2.9 million. Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share for the third quarter of fiscal year 2020 was $0.84, which adds back stock-based compensation expenses of $4.8 million, one-time employee performance bonuses of $10.3 million, legal settlement costs of $17.5 million, and other non-recurring expenses of $1.4 million less the related tax effects.

As of March 31, 2020, total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash was $319 million and bank debt was $33 million.

“We were pleased to deliver Q3 revenue that grew 4% year-over-year despite the disruptions to our operations from the impact of COVID-19," said Charles Liang, Chairman and CEO. "Our highest priority remains the health and security of our employees, customers and partners, and I want to personally thank them all for their perseverance during this challenging time. While the business environment remains dynamic, we remain focused on our longer-term priorities and helping our customers capitalize on rapidly growing applications such as Artificial Intelligence, 5G / Edge, and Cloud, the adoption of all which is accelerating as a result of the global pandemic. Our pipeline of innovation is more vibrant than ever with new server products leveraging the latest generation of Xeon processors from Intel and EPYC processors from AMD, Outdoor Edge systems for 5G, and high-volume, cost-effective systems for large Data Center operators. Supermicro remains ready and eager to help its customers meet their evolving strategic priorities, whatever challenges may come."

Fourth Quarter Fiscal Year 2020 Guidance

Given the uncertainties related to COVID-19, Supermicro will not provide guidance for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements

Statements contained in this press release that are not historical fact may be forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Such forward-looking statements may relate to, among other things, the ability to execute on the company strategy during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Such forward-looking statements do not constitute guarantees of future performance and are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those anticipated, including: (i) the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to present significant uncertainties for all parts of our business including our supply chain, our production operations and customer demand, (ii) our quarterly operating results may fluctuate, which could cause rapid declines in our stock price, (iii) as we increasingly target larger customers and larger sales opportunities, our customer base may become more concentrated, our cost of sales may increase, our margins may be lower and our sales may be less predictable, (iv) if we fail to meet publicly announced financial guidance or other expectations about our business, our stock could decline in value, (v) the average sales prices for our server solutions could decline if customers do not continue to purchase our latest generation products or additional components, and (vi) adverse economic conditions may harm our business. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected or suggested in any forward-looking statements are contained in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including those factors discussed under the caption "Risk Factors" in such filings, particularly in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended June 30, 2019 and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for our quarterly period ended December 31, 2019.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP gross margin discussed in this press release adds back stock-based compensation expenses and one-time employee performance bonuses. Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share discussed in this press release adds back stock-based compensation expenses, one-time employee performance bonuses, legal settlement costs, other non-recurring expenses, and the related tax effects of the applicable items. Management presents non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. Management uses the non-GAAP financial measures for planning purposes, including analysis of the Company's performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and to determine appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. 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. A reconciliation of gross margin to non-GAAP gross margin and from diluted net income per common share to non-GAAP diluted net income per common share is included in the tables below.
