Brocade Reports Fiscal Q2 2016 Results

Board Approves Increased Third Quarter Dividend

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - Brocade® (NASDAQ: BRCD) today reported financial results for its second fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2016. Brocade reported second quarter revenue of $523 million, down 4% year-over-year and down 9% quarter-over-quarter. The Company reported GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.11, down from $0.18 in Q2 2015 and down from $0.23 in Q1 2016. Non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.22 for Q2 2016, flat year-over-year and down from $0.29 in Q1 2016.

"Despite the challenging environment for both SAN and IP networking, Brocade had a productive second fiscal quarter," said Lloyd Carney, CEO of Brocade. "We were excited to announce our intent to acquire Ruckus Wireless, a pioneer in wireless infrastructure solutions, in a transaction that we expect to close in our third fiscal quarter. In addition, we began shipping our industry-leading Gen 6 Fibre Channel switching solution, and garnered our first customer win for the New IP-based mobility platform, Brocade Virtual Core for Mobile, that we launched earlier in the quarter. Through achievements such as these, we continue to drive the strategic evolution of our business as a pure-play networking provider for the digital transformation era. Additionally, we expect our product roadmap to deliver further advancements across our portfolio that set the stage for expanded opportunities in the quarters to come."

Highlights:

  • SAN product revenue of $297 million was down 5% year-over-year. The year-over-year decline was primarily the result of softer demand across the product portfolio, with Fibre Channel directors down 6%, fixed-configuration switches down 4%, and embedded server switches down 9%. Sequentially, SAN product revenue decreased 15%, with Fibre Channel directors declining 12%, fixed-configuration switches down 14%, and embedded server switches down 25%. While the Fibre Channel SAN business normally experiences seasonal softness in our fiscal Q2, the sequential revenue decline was larger than expected due primarily to unusually weak storage demand as reported by many of our partners and peers.
  • During the quarter, Brocade announced and recorded revenue in connection with the launch of the first phase of the Gen 6 Fibre Channel switching platform, the Brocade G620 Switch. Advancing Brocade's leadership in Fibre Channel technology, this next generation of switches delivers superior performance and scalability designed to support continued data growth and the demanding workloads from mission-critical applications that are increasingly deployed on flash-based storage.
  • IP Networking product revenue of $132 million was down 9% year-over-year. The decline was primarily due to lower router sales, down 33%, partially offset by stronger Ethernet switch sales, up 9% from Q2 of 2015. The year-over-year decline was primarily the result of lower service provider and U.S. federal sales. Sequentially, IP Networking product revenue decreased 2% primarily due to lower Ethernet switch sales, which were down 3% from Q1 of 2016. The sequential revenue decline was primarily due to lower sales to enterprise customers as both service provider and U.S. federal revenue grew sequentially.
  • On April 4, 2016, Brocade announced its intention to acquire Ruckus Wireless, Inc., enhancing Brocade's position as a pure-play networking company with solutions spanning from the heart of the data center to the wireless network edge. The combined company is expected to be #1 in storage area networking, #1 in service provider Wi-Fi, #2 in data center networking, #3 in enterprise wireless LAN, and #3 in enterprise edge networking (in the U.S. and EMEA). The acquisition is expected to close in Brocade's fiscal third quarter.

Board Declares Increased Dividend:

  • The Brocade Board of Directors has declared a regular third fiscal quarter cash dividend of $0.055 per share of the Company's common stock, a 22% increase from the dividend of $0.045 per share declared and paid in each of the previous four fiscal quarters. The dividend payment will be made on July 5, 2016 to stockholders of record at the close of market on June 10, 2016.

Brocade management will host a conference call to discuss the fiscal second quarter results and the fiscal third quarter outlook today at 2:30 p.m. PT (5:30 p.m. ET).

Please see important note of explanation about the use of non-GAAP financial measures below, including a detailed reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP information in the tables included herein.

   
(1) Revenues are attributed to geographic areas based on known product delivery location. Since some OEM partners take delivery of Brocade products domestically and then ship internationally to their end users, the percentage of international revenues based on end-user location would likely be higher.
   
(2) SAN and IP Networking business revenues include hardware and software product, support, and services revenues.
   
(3) Product revenue by use category is estimated based on analysis of the information the Company collects in its sales management system. The estimated percentage of revenue by use category may fluctuate quarter to quarter due to seasonality and the timing of large customer orders.
   
(4) Each use category includes enterprise, service provider, and government revenues.
   
(5) Q2 2016, Q1 2016, and Q2 2015 total debt, net of discount and issuance costs, includes the debt discount recorded for the conversion feature that is required to be separately accounted for as equity for the $575 million convertible debt, thereby reducing the carrying value of the debt. The unamortized debt discount for the conversion feature was $62 million as of April 30, 2016, $66 million as of January 30, 2016, and $77 million as of May 2, 2015.
   
(6) $1.3 million of the $77.1 million in share repurchases in Q2 2015 were pending cash settlement as of May 2, 2015.
   

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement financial information presented on a GAAP basis, Brocade provides information presented on a non-GAAP basis. These non-GAAP financial measures are not computed in accordance with, or as an alternative to, financial information presented on a GAAP basis. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. The most directly comparable GAAP information and a reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP amounts is provided in the tables at the end of this press release.

Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release allow management to gain a better understanding of Brocade's comparative operating performance, both from period to period and relative to its competitors. These non-GAAP financial measures also help with the determination of Brocade's baseline performance before gains, losses or charges that are considered by management to be outside of ongoing operating results. Accordingly, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures for planning and forecasting of future periods and in making decisions regarding operations and the allocation of resources.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with Brocade's GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of Brocade's ongoing operating results;

  • the ability to make more meaningful comparisons of Brocade's operating performance relative to its competitors;

  • the ability to better identify trends in Brocade's underlying business and to perform related trend analyses; and

  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures Brocade's underlying business.

Management excludes certain gains or losses and benefits or costs in determining non-GAAP financial measures that are the result of infrequent events or events that arise outside the ordinary course of Brocade's continuing operations. Management believes that it is appropriate to evaluate Brocade's operating performance by excluding those items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results or limit comparability. Such items include, but are not limited to: (i) acquisition and integration costs; (ii) restructuring and other related benefits; and (iii) effects of certain intercompany transactions on the tax provision.

Management also excludes the following non-cash charges in determining non-GAAP financial measures: (i) stock-based compensation expense; (ii) amortization of purchased intangible assets; and (iii) non-cash interest expense related to the convertible debt.

Management believes that the exclusion of stock-based compensation allows for more accurate comparisons of Brocade's operating results to Brocade's peer companies because of the varying use of valuation methodologies and subjective assumptions and the variety of award types. In addition, the exclusion of the expense associated with the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets is appropriate because a significant portion of the purchase price for acquisitions may be allocated to intangible assets that have short lives, and the exclusion of amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for Brocade's newly acquired and long-held businesses. In connection with the convertible debt, under the relevant accounting guidance, a non-cash interest expense is recognized for the convertible debt as an imputed interest expense for the conversion feature. Management believes excluding the non-cash interest expense related to the convertible debt from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for investors because the expense does not represent a cash outflow in the respective reporting periods and is not indicative of ongoing operating performance.

Finally, management believes that it is appropriate to exclude the tax effects of the items noted above in order to present a more meaningful measure of non-GAAP net income.

Limitations: These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations because they do not include all items of income and expense that impact the company. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measurements reported by other companies. Management compensates for these limitations by relying primarily on its GAAP results and using non-GAAP financial measures only supplementally. Management also provides robust and detailed reconciliations of each non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP measure, and management encourages investors to review carefully those reconciliations.
