Santa Clara, Calif. (August 25, 2022) - Marvell Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in infrastructure semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2023.

Net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $1.517 billion, consistent with the midpoint of the Company’s guidance provided on May 26, 2022. GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2023 was $486 million, or $0.57 per diluted share. Cash flow from operations for the second quarter was $331.5 million.

“In the second quarter of fiscal 2023, we delivered record revenue of $1.52 billion, which grew 41 percent year over year and 5 percent sequentially. This was the 9th straight quarter of sequential revenue growth, and we are guiding for growth to continue in the third quarter, as we expand our leadership in data infrastructure,” said Matt Murphy, Marvell’s President and CEO. “Looking ahead, we expect sequential revenue growth to accelerate in the fourth quarter as supply constraints begin to ease. We believe we are well positioned to continue to benefit from our favorable end market exposure tied to strong secular growth trends and significant expected upcoming revenue contributions from a number of Marvell-specific product ramps.”

Third Quarter of Fiscal 2023 Financial Outlook

  • Net revenue is expected to be $1.560 billion +/- 3%.

  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be 51.1% +/- 1.1%.

  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be 65.0% +/- 0.25%.

  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $667 million to $677 million.

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $435 million to $440 million.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of the inventory fair value adjustment associated with acquisitions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition and divestiture-related costs, restructuring and other related charges (including, but not limited to, asset impairment charges, employee severance costs, and facilities related charges), resolution of legal matters, and certain expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell’s core business.

Marvell uses a non-GAAP tax rate to compute the non-GAAP tax provision. This non-GAAP tax rate is based on Marvell’s estimated annual GAAP income tax forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from Marvell’s non- GAAP income, as well as the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which vary in size and frequency, and excludes tax deductions and benefits from acquired tax loss and credit carryforwards and changes in valuation allowance on acquired deferred tax assets. Marvell’s non-GAAP tax rate is determined on an annual basis and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events that may materially affect the non- GAAP tax rate such as tax law changes; acquisitions; significant changes in Marvell’s geographic mix of revenue and expenses; or changes to Marvell’s corporate structure. For the second quarter of fiscal 2023, a non-GAAP tax rate of 6.0% has been applied to the non-GAAP financial results.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides 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, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. 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.

Externally, management believes that investors may find Marvell’s non-GAAP financial measures useful in their assessment of Marvell’s operating performance and the valuation of Marvell. Internally, Marvell’s non-GAAP financial measures are used in the following areas:

  • Management’s evaluation of Marvell’s operating performance;

  • Management’s establishment of internal operating budgets;

  • Management’s performance comparisons with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and

  • Management’s determination of the achievement and measurement of certain performance-based equity awards (adjustments may vary from award to award).

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of Marvell’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Marvell’s results as reported under GAAP. The exclusion of the above items from our GAAP financial metrics does not necessarily mean that these costs are unusual or infrequent.
