We are well on our way to becoming the leading global supplier of rack-scale Total IT Solutions, powering the world’s digital transformation across diverse applications in key market segments including AI, enterprise, cloud, edge/telco and others.”

Fiscal Year 2022 Summary

Net sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022, were $5.20 billion versus $3.56 billion for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021. Net income for fiscal year 2022 was $285 million, or $5.32 per diluted share, versus $112 million, or $2.09 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2021.

Business Outlook and Management Commentary

For the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 ending September 30, 2022, the Company expects net sales of $1.52 billion to $1.62 billion, GAAP net income per diluted share of $2.01 to $2.27 and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $2.07 to $2.32. The Company’s projections for GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share assume a tax rate of approximately 19.4% and 20.3%, respectively, and a fully diluted share count of 54.8 million shares for GAAP and fully diluted share count of 56.2 million shares for non-GAAP. The outlook for Q1 of fiscal year 2023 GAAP net income per diluted share includes approximately $8.6 million in expected stock-based compensation expense and $0.5 million in other expenses, net of related tax effects that are excluded from non-GAAP net income per diluted share.

For fiscal year 2023 ending June 30, 2023, the Company expects net sales of $6.2 billion to $7.0 billion, GAAP net income per diluted share of at least $7.27 and non-GAAP net income per diluted share of at least $7.50. The Company’s projections for GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share assume a tax rate of approximately 20.3% and 21.1%, respectively, and a fully diluted share count of 55.6 million shares for GAAP and fully diluted share count of 57.0 million shares for non-GAAP. The outlook for fiscal year 2023 GAAP net income per diluted share includes approximately $35.4 million in expected stock-based compensation expense and other expenses, net of related tax effects that are excluded from non-GAAP net income per diluted share.

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 first quarter of fiscal year 2023 and full fiscal year 2023 guidance, the Company's long-term growth targets, momentum going into fiscal year 2023, the ability to become the leading global supplier of rack-scale Total IT Solutions, and the ability to execute on the Company's 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, 2021 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q filed thereafter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP gross margin discussed in this press release adds back stock-based compensation expenses and other expenses. Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share discussed in this press release adds back stock-based compensation expenses, special performance bonuses, litigation and controls remediation expenses, litigation settlement costs and other expenses, and excludes a credit from an executive SEC settlement, which are all adjusted for 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.
