Nimble Storage Reports Financial Results for Fiscal Second Quarter 2015

- Revenue Up 89% year-over-year

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company, today reported financial results for the fiscal second quarter 2015.  The Company has released a discussion of these results by posting the current Shareholder Letter on its website.  Please visit the Nimble Storage investor relations website at http://investors.nimblestorage.com to view the Shareholder Letter.

"During Q2, our Adaptive Flash platform launch underscored the breadth and comprehensive nature of our approach to leveraging flash, particularly when contrasted against more narrowly focused tiered hybrid storage offerings or flash-only offerings," said Suresh Vasudevan, chief executive officer, Nimble Storage.   "We added a record 663 new end customers during the quarter, ending with a total of 3,756 end customers, an increase of 115% from Q2 of last year.  During the last four quarters, we added a total of over 2,000 new end customers as we continued to increase our share of market.  We also closed a record number of deals with a value over $100K during Q2, including the largest deal in our history."

"Q2 was a great quarter for us.  We reported record revenue of $53.8 million, ahead of our guidance of $49 to $51 million. Our gross margin was also a record high at 67.4%, and remains best of breed in the storage industry.  We remain very pleased with the progress we are making towards achieving our long-term financial goals," said Anup Singh, chief financial officer, Nimble Storage. 

Fiscal Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results:

  • Revenue:  Total revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 was $53.8 million, compared to $28.5 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014, representing growth of 89% year-over-year.
  • Non-GAAP Gross Margin:  Second quarter non-GAAP gross margin of 67.4%, compared to 64.3% in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Non-GAAP Operating Margin:  Second quarter non-GAAP operating margin was negative 20%, compared to negative 30% in the second quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • GAAP Net Loss: Second quarter net loss was $0.37 per basic and diluted share, compared with a net loss of $0.51 per basic and diluted share in the fiscal second quarter of 2014.
  • Non-GAAP Net Loss: Second quarter non-GAAP net loss was $0.15 per basic and diluted share, compared with a non-GAAP net loss of $0.15 per basic and diluted share in the fiscal second quarter of 2014.

Forward Outlook:

Nimble Storage provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations. For the fiscal third quarter of 2015, we expect: 

  • Revenue in the range of $56 to $58 million; the midpoint of this range reflects 71% growth compared to the prior year period
  • Non-GAAP operating loss of $11 to $12 million; the midpoint of this range represents negative 20% operating margin compared to negative 24% in the prior year period
  • Non-GAAP net loss of $0.16 to $0.17 per share
  • Weighted average basic shares outstanding of approximately 73 million

Our financial objectives remain (1) driving strong revenue growth and increasing our market share (2) maintaining industry leading gross margins and (3) steadily progressing towards our long-term target financial model of 16%-20% operating margin by delivering sequential improvement in operating margin every year.  We remain on track to achieve break-even on a non-GAAP basis by the end of our next fiscal year (FY16).

Recent Business Highlights:

  • Nimble Storage Redefines Storage Market With Adaptive Flash Platform - Delivers Enterprise Scale Performance with New CS700 Series Arrays and All-Flash Shelf.  Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform provides the performance of flash-only arrays and the capacity of hybrid arrays with the introduction of the CS700 Series arrays and All-Flash Shelf delivering up to 500,000 IOPS, 64 terabytes (TBs) of flash, and a petabyte of capacity. By minimizing performance and capacity tradeoffs, Nimble's Adaptive Flash platform enables the consolidation of all workloads and eliminates storage silos.  The CS700 Series array and All-Flash Shelf are now generally available.
  • Nimble Storage Extends Industry-Leading Performance Efficiency with New Adaptive Flash Arrays.  Nimble Storage announced upgrades to its CS-Series arrays with the introduction of two new families: CS300 and CS500. The new families, like Nimble's high-end CS700 array, leverage the company's unique Adaptive Flash CPU-driven architecture and the newest version of Intel's high-performance CPU architecture. The new arrays deliver 50 percent more performance than the CS200 and CS400 families that they are replacing.  Like the recently announced CS700, the CS300 and CS500 arrays can be combined with Nimble's All-Flash Shelf to support tens of terabytes of flash in a scale-out cluster. Nimble's Adaptive Flash platform eliminates performance and capacity tradeoffs, providing the performance of flash-only arrays and the capacity of hybrid arrays.  The Nimble Storage CS300 and CS500 are now generally available.
  • Nimble Storage was Recognized by CRN as a 2014 Emerging Vendor.  The annual Emerging Vendors list identifies up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. Nimble's channel-centric model continues to be a key driver of the company's growth and has successfully launched within several new regions, including Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and throughout EMEA. Nimble launched a two-tier distribution model in North America, successfully transitioning 100 percent of all resellers to purchase through distribution.
  • Nimble Storage Named 'Top Workplace' By the Bay Area News Group for the Second Consecutive Year.  For the second consecutive year, Nimble Storage has ranked in the top 10, placing seventh this year and up two spots from the previous listing. In addition, chief executive officer, Suresh Vasudevan, was selected as the winner of the Special Recognition Award for Leadership for mid-size companies in the Bay Area.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To provide investors with additional information regarding our financial results, Nimble Storage has disclosed in this release and the accompanying tables non-GAAP financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP. The Company provides non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss per share and adjusted EBITDA. In computing these non-GAAP financial measures, the Company excludes the effects of stock-based compensation, which is a recurring expense for the Company.  The Company has provided a reconciliation below of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

The Company discloses these non-GAAP financial measures because they are key measures used by the Company's management and board of directors to understand and evaluate  operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve the annual budget and to develop short-term and long-term operational and compensation plans. In particular, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating non-GAAP financial measures can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company's business. Accordingly, the Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results in the same manner as the Company's management and board of directors.

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and, as such, should not be considered in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of the Company's results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are:

  • Non-GAAP financial measures do not consider the potentially dilutive impact of equity-based compensation, which is an ongoing expense for the Company; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently, which reduces their usefulness as comparative measures.
