QLogic Reports First Quarter Results for Fiscal Year 2015

QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced its first quarter financial results for the period ended June 29, 2014.

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $119.4 million and increased 6% from $113.1 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Advanced Connectivity Platforms was $104.7 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2015 and increased 12% from $93.2 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Legacy Connectivity Products was $14.7 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2015 compared to $19.9 million in the same quarter last year.

“Fiscal year 2015 is off to a solid start as we delivered both revenue and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share that exceeded the midpoint of our guidance ranges. Our strong revenue performance was driven by a 12% year-over-year increase in revenue from Advanced Connectivity Platforms,” said Prasad Rampalli, president and chief executive officer, QLogic. “Our team executed very well to further establish QLogic as a leader in data and storage networking connectivity products. We are making significant progress in the enterprise Ethernet market and our revenue from these products is an important contributor to our overall growth. We continue to believe that we are well positioned to experience revenue growth through expanded market opportunities.”

Net income on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased to $6.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, from a net loss of $3.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Net income on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 increased 13% to $18.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, from $16.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

QLogic uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements based on GAAP. A summary of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as a description of the reasons that management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and the additional purposes for which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, is presented in the accompanying financial schedules.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein are a supplement to the corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures presented exclude the items summarized in the above table. Management believes that adjustments for these items assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that these items are not indicative of the company’s on-going core operating performance.

The company has presented non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share, on a basis consistent with its historical presentation, to assist investors in understanding the company’s core net income and core net income per diluted share on an on-going basis. These non-GAAP financial measures may also assist investors in making comparisons of the company’s core net profitability with historical periods and comparisons of the company’s core net profitability with the corresponding results for competitors. Management believes that non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share are important measures in the evaluation of the company’s profitability. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the adjustments described in the above table, and thus provide an overall measure of the company’s on-going net profitability and related profitability on a per diluted share basis.

Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in its evaluation of the company’s core after-tax results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. In addition, the company prepares and maintains its budgets and forecasts for future periods on a basis consistent with these non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors to view the company’s financial results in the way that management views the financial results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures and why the company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, the company refers you to the Form 8-K regarding this release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A summary of the non-GAAP adjustments presented in the table above by the financial statement line impacted is as follows:

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.
