Q2 Fiscal 2008 Financial Results

Net sales for the second quarter ended December 31, 2007 were $136.9 million, up 20.5% from $113.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2007. Net sales from server solutions comprised 42.4% of net sales, up from 35.4% in the second quarter of fiscal year 2007. On a sequential basis, net sales increased by 16.1% from $117.9 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2008. The net sales growth was primarily due to growth in high efficiency power supply solutions and new products. No customer accounted for more than 10% of net sales during the quarter.

Net income for the second quarter of fiscal year 2008 was $7.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. Included in net income for the quarter was $0.9 million of stock-based compensation expense (pre-tax). Excluding stock-based compensation expense and the related tax effect, non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $8.6 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $5.3 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, in the same period a year ago. On a sequential basis, GAAP net income increased by $1.9 million, or $0.05 per diluted share and non-GAAP net income increased by $2.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.

Gross margin for the second quarter was 19.9%, compared to 16.7% in the same period a year ago. Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter was 20.0% compared to 16.8% in the same period a year ago. Second quarter of fiscal year 2008 gross margin was higher than the same period a year ago primarily due to higher revenue mix of server solutions and sales of new products. On a sequential basis, GAAP gross margin increased by 0.4% from 19.5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2008 and non-GAAP gross margin increased by 0.4% from 19.6% in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. The increase was primarily due to higher revenue from server solutions.

The Company ended the second quarter of fiscal year 2008 with $64.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments compared to $65.9 million at the end of fourth quarter of fiscal year 2007.

6-Month Summary

Net sales for the six months ended December 31, 2007 were $254.9 million, up 25.1% from $203.8 million for the first six months of fiscal year 2007. Net income for the first six months of fiscal year 2008 was $13.5 million or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to $9.8 million or $0.30 per diluted share in the same period a year ago. Excluding stock based-compensation expense and related tax effect, non-GAAP net income for the first six months was $15.2 million or $0.39 per diluted share, compared to $10.6 million or $0.33 per diluted share in the same period a year ago.

Business Outlook & Management Commentary

The server industry has historically experienced seasonal revenue weakness in the quarters ending September 30 and March 31, our fiscal Q1 and Q3. However, the Company has also benefited from increased revenue traction following the introduction of new products. The Company expects that both trends will continue this quarter and that new products introduced during the prior quarters should offset in part the impact of seasonal weakness. As a result, the Company expects revenues to be in the range of $137 to $142 million for the third quarter of fiscal year 2008 ending March 31, 2008.

In addition, the Company re-confirms the guidance provided on November 14, 2007 regarding fiscal year 2008 revenue and net income. The Company continues to expect that as compared to fiscal 2007, for fiscal 2008, revenues from server products will grow by approximately 50%, total net sales will increase by a minimum of 30% and net income will increase by a minimum of 35%. It is currently expected that the outlook will not be updated until the release of the Company's next quarterly earnings announcement, notwithstanding subsequent developments; however, the Company may update the outlook or any portion thereof at any time.

"Supermicro had a great quarter with record revenue and net income. The broad base of products we offer and the ability to deliver application optimized solutions in an efficient and timely manner to our customers around the world drove these outstanding results," said Charles Liang, President and Chief Executive Officer of Super Micro Computer. "We continue our global focus on optimizing our business through innovation and expansion."
