Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Reports Third Quarter of Fiscal 2011 Results

Revenue: $959 Million, Up 7 Percent Sequentially

Santa Clara, California (November 18, 2010) – Marvell (Nasdaq: MRVL), a global leader in integrated silicon solutions, today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, ended October 30, 2010.

Net revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $959 million, a 20 percent increase from $803 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, ended October 31, 2009, and an 7 percent sequential increase from $896 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, ended July 31, 2010.  

GAAP net income was $256 million, or $0.38 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with a GAAP net income of $202 million, or $0.31 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2010. GAAP net income in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $220 million, or $0.33 per share (diluted).  

Non-GAAP net income was $307 million, or $0.45 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2011, as compared with non-GAAP net income of $232 million, or $0.35 per share (diluted), for the third quarter of fiscal 2010.  Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 was $273 million, or $0.40 per share (diluted).  

"We delivered excellent results, which were at the high-end of our original guidance for the third quarter," said Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Marvell's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.  "We delivered significant long term growth in all of our target end-markets.  We continue to make excellent progress within our mobile and wireless end market, which increased over 20 percent sequentially, and we experienced improved demand within our storage end-market as revenue increased 3 percent sequentially.  Furthermore, we continue to deliver robust margins and significant free cash flow, which highlights the long term leverage our business model can deliver."

Marvell reports net income, basic and diluted net income per share in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis as outlined below.  Reconciliations of GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income for the three months ended October 30, 2010, July 31, 2010 and October 31, 2009 appear in the financial statements below.  Non-GAAP net income, where applicable, excludes the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization and write-offs of acquired intangible assets, restructuring costs and certain other expenses or benefits.  

GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was 59.3 percent, compared to 57.5 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and 59.1 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  

Non-GAAP gross margin for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was 59.5 percent, compared to 57.8 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and 59.3 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  

Shares used to compute GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were 675 million shares, compared with 660 million shares in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and 675 million shares in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  Shares used to compute non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 were 677 million shares, compared with 664 million shares for the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and 678 million shares for the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  

Cash flow from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $368 million, up from the $204 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2010 and up from the $319 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  Free cash flow for the third quarter of fiscal 2011 was $338 million, up from the $196 million reported in third quarter of fiscal 2010, and up from the $292 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  Free cash flow as presented above is defined as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures and purchases of technology licenses.  

Conference Call

Marvell will be conducting a conference call on November 18, 2010 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the third quarter of fiscal 2011.  Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1-866-510-0707, pass-code 19248119.  The call will be webcast by Thomson Reuters and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until December 18, 2010.  

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation expense as well as charges related to acquisitions, restructuring, gains and other charges that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core operating performance.  Non-GAAP income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted).  For purposes of calculating non-GAAP income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of compensation costs expected to be incurred in future periods, but not yet recognized in the financial statements.  The expected compensation costs are treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method and also include the dilutive/antidilutive effects of common stock options and restricted stock.  

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Marvell's financial condition and results of operations.  While Marvell uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance its understanding of certain aspects of its financial performance, Marvell does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, the information provided by GAAP financial measures.  Consistent with this approach, Marvell believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of its financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, allows for greater transparency in the review of its financial and operational performance.  For further information regarding why Marvell believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to Marvell's Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the SEC.  The Form 8-K is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov as well as on the Marvell website in the Investor Relations section at www.marvell.com.
