Cray Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results and Updates 2016 Outlook

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Aug 2, 2016) - Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

All figures in this release are based on U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables in this press release.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2016 was $100.2 million, which compares with $186.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. Net loss for the second quarter of 2016 was $13.1 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net loss was $11.4 million, or $0.29 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2016, compared to non-GAAP net income of $12.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share for the same period of 2015.

Overall gross profit margin on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for the second quarter of 2016 was 36%, compared to 27% for the second quarter of 2015.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $51.8 million, compared to $40.0 million for the second quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 were $49.0 million, compared to $37.3 million for the second quarter of 2015. GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses for the second quarter of 2016 included approximately $2.3 million associated with the Company's exercising of an early lease termination option.

As of June 30, 2016, cash, investments and restricted cash totaled $224 million. Working capital decreased at the end of the second quarter of 2016 to $381 million compared to $418 million at the end of the first quarter.

Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray, said, "While we had a number of exciting product launches in the second quarter, the drop in our revenue expectations for the second half of the year due to recent developments is extremely disappointing. However, I do not believe that our leadership position in the market has changed. We remain confident in our strategy, competitive position and our ability to drive growth into the future."

Outlook
For 2016, while a wide range of results remains possible, the Company now expects revenue to be in the range of $650 million. The change in the Company's revenue outlook was driven by the level and timing of new orders and the delays of key third-party components, the risks of which were outlined last quarter, as well as a very recent electrical smoke event caused by a failed manufacturing facility power component that will delay the Company's ability to deliver on some customer contracts in 2016, including an impact on anticipated third quarter revenue. Revenue for the third quarter is anticipated to be in the range of $80 million. GAAP and Non-GAAP gross margin for the year is expected to be in the range of 34%. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the year are anticipated to be about $200 million. For 2016, GAAP operating expenses are anticipated to be about $12 million higher than non-GAAP operating expenses, and GAAP gross profit is expected to about $1 million lower than non-GAAP gross profit. Based on this outlook, the Company expects to be profitable on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for 2016.

Given the Company's updated outlook for 2016, the effective GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for the year are now expected to be about 6% and 30%, respectively, but are subject to significant variability.

Actual results for any future periods are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray's business.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains "non-GAAP financial measures" under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A reconciliation of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to non-GAAP results is included in the financial tables included in this press release. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures that we have set forth provide additional insight for analysts and investors and facilitate an evaluation of Cray's financial and operational performance that is consistent with the manner in which management evaluates Cray's financial performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, as they exclude the financial impact of transactions necessary or advisable for the conduct of Cray's business, such as the granting of equity compensation awards, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Hence, to compensate for these limitations, management does not review these non-GAAP financial metrics in isolation from its GAAP results, nor should investors. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This non-GAAP information supplements, and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with, or disclosures required by GAAP. These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP numbers at the end of this release, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this non-GAAP information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in Cray's SEC filings.

Additionally, we have not quantitatively reconciled the non-GAAP guidance measures disclosed under "Outlook" to their corresponding GAAP measures because we do not provide specific guidance for the various reconciling items such as stock-based compensation, adjustments to the provision for income taxes, amortization of intangibles, costs related to acquisitions, purchase accounting adjustments, and gain on significant asset sales, as certain items that impact these measures have not occurred, are out of our control or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, reconciliations to the non-GAAP guidance measures are not available without unreasonable effort. Please note that the unavailable reconciling items could significantly impact our financial results.

Notes                        
(1) Adjustments to exclude non-cash expenses related to share-based compensation            
(2) Adjustments to exclude amortization of acquired intangible and other intangible assets and other acquisition-related charges            
(3) Adjustments associated with the tax impact on reconciling items, benefits related to Cray's net operating loss carryforwards and changes in Cray's valuation allowance held against deferred tax assets            
(4) Cray recorded a GAAP net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2015 and non-GAAP net income for the same period. As such, the diluted weighted average shares number on the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) differs from the amount on Cray's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations by the weighted average number of potential common shares outstanding, including the additional dilution related to conversion of stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested restricted stock units as computed under the treasury stock method
