GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $62 million, or $0.12 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $53 million, or $0.11 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and $93 million, or $0.16 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP net income was $118 million, or $0.23 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, compared with non-GAAP net income of $98 million, or $0.19 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and $142 million, or $0.24 per share (diluted), for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

“Our results in the second quarter were at the high-end of our guidance mainly due to better demand and share gains in our storage end market and strong double digit growth in our mobile and wireless end markets,” said Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Marvell’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Many of our customers are introducing new devices using our innovative solutions, which should drive continued success across all of our end markets. We expect growth to be driven by increased traction in areas such as mobile handsets, tablets, connectivity, smart home devices and SSDs.”

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 August 3, 2013, May 4, 2013 and July 28, 2012 appear in the financial statements below. Non-GAAP net income, where applicable, excludes the effect of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits.

GAAP gross margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was 52.2 percent, compared to 54.3 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and 53.2 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was 53.0 percent, compared to 54.6 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and 53.6 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

Shares used to compute GAAP net income per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were 501 million shares, compared with 505 million shares in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and 570 million shares in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Shares used to compute non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 were 516 million shares, compared with 522 million shares for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and 587 million shares for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in shares used to compute both Marvell’s GAAP and non-GAAP net income per diluted share was primarily due to Marvell’s share repurchase program.

Cash flow from operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $86 million, compared to the $84 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and the $189 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Free cash flow for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 was $65 million, compared to the $53 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and the $174 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Free cash flow as presented above is defined as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures and purchases of technology licenses reported under investing and financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

Under the share repurchase program, Marvell repurchased approximately 7.2 million shares for a total of $83 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014. Over the past 12 quarters, Marvell has repurchased and retired approximately 211 million shares, or about 30 percent of its outstanding shares.

Marvell also paid a quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on July 3, 2013 to all shareholders of record as of June 13, 2013. Marvell intends to pay its next quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on October 3, 2013 to all shareholders of record as of September 12, 2013.

The payment of future quarterly cash dividends on Marvell’s common shares is subject to, among other things, the best interests of its shareholders, its results of operations, cash balances and future cash requirements, financial condition, statutory requirements of Bermuda law, and other factors that the board of directors may deem relevant.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell’s core operating performance. Non-GAAP net 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 net income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of stock-based compensation 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/anti-dilutive effects of common stock options and restricted stock units.

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.
