SGI Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results

Expects Non-GAAP Profitability and Positive Cash Flow in FY2016

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 5, 2015) - SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), a global leader in high performance solutions for compute, data analytics and data management, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 26, 2015. The data in this release is presented on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis and a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables in this press release.

Total revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter was $153 million compared to $142 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014. GAAP net loss for the fiscal fourth quarter was $10 million, or $(0.28) per share compared with a net loss of $10 million, or $(0.30) per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014. Non-GAAP net loss for the fiscal fourth quarter was $4 million, or $(0.12) per share compared with a net loss of $0.5 million, or $(0.01) per share in the same quarter a year ago.

Total revenue for fiscal 2015 was $521 million compared with $530 million in fiscal 2014. GAAP net loss for fiscal 2015 was $39 million, or $(1.13) per share, compared with a net loss of $53 million, or $(1.54) per share, in fiscal 2014. Non-GAAP net loss was $13 million, or $(0.36) per share for fiscal 2015, compared with a net loss of $13 million, or $(0.39) per share, for fiscal 2014.

"We began fiscal 2016 with significantly higher bookings and backlog than last year. The building blocks of our growth strategy are in place as we continue to win large strategic deals in HPC and penetrate the enterprise market for data analytics with our single node in-memory solutions. With our focus on profitable revenue growth and cost management, we are committed to achieving non-GAAP profitability and positive cash generation in fiscal 2016," said Jorge Titinger, President and CEO of SGI.

Outlook

The company currently expects revenue for fiscal year 2016 to be in the range of $600 to $625 million, representing year-over-year growth of 15% - 20%. While ranges could vary, the company currently anticipates first half revenue to be 45% to 50% of the full year. Non-GAAP gross margin for fiscal 2016 is expected to be between 26% and 27%. Total non-GAAP operating expenses for the year are expected to be flat to down 5% compared to fiscal 2015.

Based on this outlook, and after excluding approximately $17 million of adjustments, the company expects to be profitable on a non-GAAP basis in the range of $0.25 to $0.35 per share for fiscal 2016. On a GAAP basis, net loss is expected to be in the range of $(0.11) to $(0.21) per share for fiscal 2016. Earnings per share calculations for the fiscal year 2016 assume 36 million weighted average shares outstanding.

Forward Looking Statements

The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results, including SGI's growth strategy, outlook regarding future profitability and positive cash generation, as well as certain statements made in the earnings conference call, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933. Actual results could differ materially from those described by these statements due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to the following: sales to U.S. government entities, which are subject to the government's budgetary constraints; customer concentration risks; fluctuations in the buying patterns and sizes of customer orders from one quarter to the next; increased competition causing SGI to sell products or services at lower margins than expected; lengthy acceptance cycles of SGI's products by certain customers and their effects on SGI's revenue and liquidity; development or product delivery delays, delays in obtaining necessary components from suppliers or delays in customer acceptance once products are delivered; the addition of new customers or loss of existing customers; unexpected changes in the price for, and the availability of, components from SGI's suppliers; SGI's ability to enhance its products with new and better designs and functionality; actions taken by competitors, such as new product announcements or introductions or changes in pricing; market acceptance of newer products; and risks related to SGI's term loan. Some of these risks and uncertainties are described in more detail in SGI's most recent Form 10-Q, Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and are available at the SEC's web site at http://www.sec.gov. Forward-looking statements are made based on information available to the company on the date of this press release. The company assumes no obligation to update the information in this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the related earnings conference call include financial measures that are not determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and management exercises judgment in determining which items should be excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. While we believe that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe that non-GAAP measures are valuable in evaluating the company's operating performance and analyzing our business operations. Management may exclude the following items from one or more of non-GAAP measures: (1) share-based compensation; (2) amortization and impairment of intangible assets; (3) restructuring and severance charges; (4) excess and obsolete inventory write-offs; (5) gains or losses on investments; and (6) other non-recurring costs. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, a detailed reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in this press release. The adjustments made should not be construed as an inference that all such adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in this release and SGI's SEC filings.

For a full reconciliation of historical non-GAAP measures referenced in this press release or today's presentation to the comparable measures under GAAP, please refer to the company's press releases on its website at www.sgi.com.

NOTE: This presentation includes certain financial measures not in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (non-GAAP measures). Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures, and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
(1) Adjustments to exclude certain non-cash expenses such as share-based compensation and amortization and impairment of intangible assets.
(2) Adjustments to exclude the items discussed below because such items are either operating expenses which would not otherwise have been incurred by the company in the normal course of the company's business operations or are not reflective of the company's core results over time. These items may include recurring as well as non-recurring items.
     
  (a) Restructuring charges and severance - Restructuring charges consist primarily of severance expense, facility closure and relocation costs.
  (b) Other non-recurring items include settlements, headquarters relocation costs, asset impairments, acquisition- related costs, and costs associated with contract manufacturing transition / termination.
  (c) Excess and obsolete charges related to our strategic withdrawal from legacy cloud infrastructure and other products that are at the end of the product life cycle.
