Cavium Announces Financial Results for Q3 2011

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 31, 2011) - Cavium, 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 third quarter of 2011 ended September 30, 2011.

Revenue in the third quarter of 2011 was $67.7 million, a 5.4% sequential decrease from the $71.6 million reported for the second quarter of 2011 and an increase of 22.7% from the $55.2 million reported for the third quarter of last year.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

Net income for the third quarter of 2011, on a GAAP basis, was $6.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011, and a net income of $5.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share in the third quarter of last year. Gross margins were 59.9% in the third quarter of 2011 compared to 59.9% in the second quarter of 2011 and 62.3% in the third quarter of last year. Total cash and cash equivalents were $74.6 million at September 30, 2011.

Non-GAAP Results

Cavium 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 third quarter of 2011 exclude expenses totaling $8.3 million related to stock-based compensation and related payroll expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition related expenses and change in earn-out liability. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.

Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $14.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $18.4 million, or $0.34 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2011. Gross margins, on a non-GAAP basis, was 65.0% and operating margins (non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of revenue), on a non-GAAP basis, was 20.3% in the third quarter of 2011.

"Though revenues this quarter were in line with the updated financial outlook we provided in September, they were weaker than originally expected, in the enterprise market as well as recognized software services revenue. Sales into the enterprise market were affected by a larger than expected impact of a hub transition at one of our major customers as well as lower demand from other enterprise customers as they adjust their supply chain inventory due to the softer demand environment," said Syed Ali, President and CEO of Cavium. "However, we continued to experience high levels of design win activity across multiple product families and are confident that we are well positioned for the future."
