Cavium Networks Announces Financial Results for Q4 2010
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., January 31, 2011 – Cavium Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2010 ended December 31, 2010.
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $59.8 million, an 8% sequential increase from the $55.2 million reported for the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 86% from the $32.1 million reported for the fourth quarter of last year. Revenue for fiscal year 2010 was $206.5 million, a 104% increase from the $101.2 million reported for fiscal year 2009.
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010, on a GAAP basis, was $34.6 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2010, and a net loss of $4.5 million, or $0.11 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of last year. Fourth quarter net income includes a net tax benefit of $27.8 million, due to a $28.9 million one-time release of the valuation allowance primarily from federal deferred tax assets as a result of our recent history of profitability and expectation of future profitability. This amount was partially offset by an adjustment to unrecognized tax benefits of $0.7 million. Gross margins were 62.7% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to 62.3% in the third quarter of 2010 and 51.5% in the fourth quarter of 2009. Total cash and cash equivalents were $90.7 million at December 31, 2010.
Cavium Networks believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company's financial condition and results of operations. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Non-GAAP financial measures in the fourth quarter of 2010 exclude a one-time net tax benefit of $28.2 million. In addition, Non-GAAP financial measures in the fourth quarter of 2010 exclude expenses totaling $8.5 million related to stock-based compensation and related payroll expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets and acquisition related expenses. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010, on a non-GAAP basis, was $14.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $12.5 million, or $0.25 per share in the third quarter of 2010. Gross margins, on a non-GAAP basis, were 65.2% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to 65.1% in the third quarter of 2010. Operating margins (non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of revenue), on a non-GAAP basis, were 25.7% in the fourth quarter of 2010 compared to 23.9% in the third quarter of 2010.
“This quarter was our seventh quarter of strong sequential sales growth. In addition, design win traction continues to be very strong across our entire family of products, including numerous design wins for Octeon II, Purevu, Econa, and Nitrox III. We generated strong cash flow during the quarter. In addition, non-GAAP gross margins and non-GAAP operating income expanded sequentially by 10 and 180 basis points, respectively. This led to record quarterly GAAP and non-GAAP earnings for the company” said Syed Ali, president and CEO of Cavium Networks.
