NVIDIA Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter Fiscal Year 2013

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA)

  • Revenue of $1.04 billion.
  • GAAP net income was $119.0 million, or $0.19 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income was $170.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share.
  • GAAP gross margin was 51.8 percent. Non-GAAP gross margin was 52.0 percent.

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today reported revenue of $1.04 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 ended July 29, 2012.

"Our investments in mobile computing and visual computing are both paying off," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. "Tegra has achieved record sales as tablets come into their own. Our GPU business made strong gains in a weak market, boosted by our breakthrough Kepler architecture.

Outlook

Our outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2013 is as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be between $1.15 billion and $1.25 billion.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be flat relative to the prior quarter, at 51.8 percent and 52.0 percent, respectively.

  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $390 million; non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $350 million.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates are expected to be approximately 20 percent, plus or minus one percentage point, excluding any discrete tax events that may occur during the quarter, which, if realized, may increase or decrease our third quarter GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates. If the U.S. research tax credit is reinstated into tax law, we estimate our annual effective tax rate for the fiscal year 2013 to be approximately 16 percent.

We estimate depreciation and amortization for the third quarter to be approximately $57 million to $59 million. Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $30 million to $40 million.

Diluted shares for the third quarter are expected to be approximately 630 million.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 and Recent Highlights:

  • Google announced that Tegra 3 powers its Nexus 7 tablet -- a fully-fledged tablet priced at just $199 -- which is the first device to run Jelly Bean, the latest version of Android.

  • Microsoft announced that Tegra® is the processor powering the company's Surface for Windows RT tablet.

  • Kepler drove market share gains in the notebook market as OEMs announced Kepler-based notebooks. Among the products announced were new notebooks from Apple, Samsung, Dell, HP, Asus, Acer, Lenovo, and Sony.

  • At its third annual GPU Technology Conference, NVIDIA launched cloud computing technologies for consumers and enterprise customers, which represent new business opportunities for the company. These leverage original software and new Kepler™ features to deliver virtualized GPUs.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement NVIDIA's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income tax expense, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income, or earnings, per share. In order for NVIDIA's investors to be better able to compare its current results with those of previous periods, the company has shown a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations adjust the related GAAP financial measures to exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, other acquisition-related costs, a non-recurring contribution expense, and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable. NVIDIA believes the presentation of its non-GAAP financial measures enhances the user's overall understanding of the company's historical financial performance. The presentation of the company's non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
