Income Statement Items

Revenues

Revenues for the third quarter fiscal 2020 were $337.4 million, representing an increase from the prior quarter of 9.5% and an increase from the comparable prior year period of 18.4%. Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2020 were $969.0 million, representing an increase of 10.7% from the first nine months of fiscal 2019. The fiscal quarter sequential increase in revenue was primarily due to distributor ordering patters in both Enterprise and Service Provider Technologies.

Gross Margins

During the third quarter fiscal 2020, gross profit was $159.6 million. GAAP gross margin of 47.3% increased 0.7% versus the comparable prior year period GAAP gross margin of 46.6% and increased 0.2% versus the prior quarter GAAP gross margin of 47.1%. The increase in gross profit percentage for the third quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the comparable prior-year period was primarily driven by favorable changes in product mix and decreased inventory reserves, partially offset by higher tariffs and higher indirect costs. The increase in gross profit percentage for the third quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the prior quarter was driven by decreased inventory write offs and lower warranty reserves partially offset by higher tariffs.

Research and Development

During the third quarter fiscal 2020, research and development ("R&D") expenses were $21.7 million. This reflects an increase as compared to the R&D expenses of $21.3 million in the comparable prior year period and a decrease as compared to R&D expenses of $24.0 million in the prior quarter. The increase in third quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the prior year period was primarily driven by higher expenses related to development activities, partially offset by lower employee related expenses. The decrease in third quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the prior quarter was primarily driven by lower employee related expenses and development activities.

Sales, General and Administrative

The Company’s sales, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the third quarter fiscal 2020 were $10.6 million. This reflects an increase as compared to the SG&A expenses of $9.4 million in the comparable prior year period and an increase as compared to the SG&A expenses of $9.0 million in the prior quarter. The increase in SG&A costs as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily due to higher marketing expense offset, in part by lower professional fees. The increase in SG&A costs as compared to the prior quarter is primarily driven by increased professional fees, marketing expenses and employee related expenses.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

During the third quarter fiscal 2020, GAAP net income was $103.7 million and non-GAAP net income was $104.3 million. This reflects an increase in GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income from the comparable prior year period by 17.5% and 17.3% respectively, primarily driven by increase in revenues and a higher gross margin. Third quarter fiscal 2020 GAAP earnings per diluted share was $1.60 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $1.61. This reflects an increase in GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share from the comparable prior year period by 28.0% and 27.8% respectively, primarily driven by higher GAAP and non-GAAP net income and a reduction in GAAP and non-GAAP diluted shares outstanding.

Impact of COVID-19

We do not believe that the COVID-19 pandemic had any material impact on the Company's results for the third quarter fiscal 2020. However, we have experienced a major disruption in our supply chain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic due to related restrictions that have significantly impacted our suppliers' ability to manufacture or provide key components or services. Accordingly, the effects, if any, of the COVID-19 pandemic may not be fully reflected in the Company's financial results until future periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses and gains such as stock-based compensation expense, Tax Regulation changes, Litigation settlement, impairment of cost-based investment and the tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments.

Reconciliations of the adjustments to GAAP results for the periods presented are provided above. In addition, an explanation of the ways in which management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management's decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under the paragraphs below.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses, significant items that we believe are important to understanding our financial, and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company's activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company's operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share

We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of certain adjustments and the tax effect of those adjustments. Items excluded from net income are:

  • Stock-based compensation expense
  • Tax Regulation changes
  • Litigation Settlement
  • Impairment of cost-based investment
  • Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments, applying the principles of ASC 740

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results.

For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the table captioned “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income” included in this press release.
