Supermicro® Schedules Conference Call and Webcast for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2017 Financial Results


Company to Report Preliminary Financial Results

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Super Micro Computer, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in high-performance, high-efficiency server, storage technology and green computing, today provided preliminary information regarding its financial results for the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2017.

The Company also announced it will release fourth quarter and fiscal 2017 financial results on Thursday, August 3, 2017, immediately after the close of regular trading, followed by a teleconference beginning at 2:00 p.m. (Pacific Time).

The Company now anticipates it will report revenue for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 in the range of $712 million to $717 million. This compares to the Company's previous guidance range of $655 million to $715 million. Revenue exceeded expectations primarily due to stronger sales in Asia and at storage customers with strong shipments that accelerated late in the quarter.

The Company also anticipates its non-GAAP earnings per diluted share will be in a range of $0.35 to $0.37. This includes an estimated negative impact of $0.09 related to three major items: expiring customer agreements with unfavorable DRAM and SSD pricing; urgent new projects with unanticipated R & D expense from major partners with NRE to be recovered in later quarters; and tax impact due to our global corporate tax structure. This compares to the Company's previous guidance of $0.40 to $0.50.

"While Supermicro exceeded revenue expectations with record high revenues due to growth in our Asia business as well as new storage customers, earnings were lower than forecast. We were negatively impacted by DRAM and SSD price increases under a number of expiring fixed priced long-term customer agreements. Operating expenses were also higher due to urgent new project R & D expense with major partners for development of programs such as AI and autonomous driving. We will provide more detail on the fourth quarter at the time of our earnings call," said Charles Liang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Notwithstanding these transitory operational impacts, Supermicro continues to expand its customer base and grow market share. With over 100 SKU's launched for Skylake and NVMe Storage solutions, Supermicro is prepared for strong growth in the upcoming technology cycle. At this time, with the Company's strong pipeline of business exiting the fourth quarter, we expect that the September quarter will exceed the seasonally adjusted revenue that we typically expect."
