• Q1 Net Revenue: $1.322 billion, declined by 9% year-on-year

  • Q1 Gross Margin: 42.2% GAAP gross margin; 60.0% non-GAAP gross margin

  • Q1 Diluted income (loss) per share: $(0.20) GAAP diluted loss per share; $0.31 non-GAAP diluted income per share

SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Marvell Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a leader in data infrastructure semiconductor solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2024.

Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $1.322 billion, $22 million above the midpoint of the Company’s guidance provided on March 2, 2023. GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $(168.9) million, or $(0.20) per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2024 was $264 million, or $0.31 per diluted share. Cash flow from operations for the first quarter was $208.4 million.

“We delivered first quarter fiscal 2024 revenue of $1.322 billion, above the midpoint of guidance, and are forecasting sequential revenue growth in the second quarter. We are expecting revenue growth to accelerate in the second half of this fiscal year, accompanied by gross and operating margin expansion,” said Matt Murphy, Marvell’s President and CEO. “AI has emerged as a key growth driver for Marvell, which we are enabling with our leading network connectivity products and emerging cloud optimized silicon platform. While we are still in the early stages of our AI ramp, we are forecasting our AI revenue in fiscal 2024 to at least double from the prior year and continue to grow rapidly in the coming years.”

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2024 Financial Outlook

  • Net revenue is expected to be $1.330 billion +/- 5%.

  • GAAP gross margin is expected to be 44.3% – 46.8%.

  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be approximately 60.0% – 61.0%.

  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $694 million.

  • Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $455 million.

  • Basic weighted average shares outstanding are expected to be 861 million.

  • Diluted weighted average shares outstanding are expected to be 865 million.

  • GAAP diluted loss per share is expected to be $(0.16) +/- $0.05 per share.

  • Non-GAAP diluted income per share is expected to be $0.32 +/- $0.05 per share.

GAAP diluted EPS is calculated using basic weighted average shares outstanding when there is a GAAP net loss, and calculated using diluted weighted average shares outstanding when there is a GAAP net income. Non-GAAP diluted EPS is calculated using diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of the inventory fair value adjustment associated with acquisitions, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition and divestiture-related costs, restructuring and other related charges (including, but not limited to, asset impairment charges, employee severance costs, and facilities related charges), resolution of legal matters, and certain expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell’s core business. Although Marvell excludes the amortization of all acquired intangible assets from these non-GAAP financial measures, management believes that it is important for investors to understand that such intangible assets were recorded as part of purchase price accounting arising from acquisitions, and that such amortization of intangible assets that relate to past acquisitions will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to Marvell’s revenues earned during the periods presented and are expected to contribute to Marvell’s future period revenues as well.

Marvell uses a non-GAAP tax rate to compute the non-GAAP tax provision. This non-GAAP tax rate is based on Marvell’s estimated annual GAAP income tax forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from Marvell’s non-GAAP income, as well as the effects of significant non-recurring and period specific tax items which vary in size and frequency, and excludes tax deductions and benefits from acquired tax loss and credit carryforwards and changes in valuation allowance on acquired deferred tax assets. Marvell’s non-GAAP tax rate is determined on an annual basis and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events that may materially affect the non-GAAP tax rate such as tax law changes; acquisitions; significant changes in Marvell’s geographic mix of revenue and expenses; or changes to Marvell’s corporate structure. For the first quarter of fiscal 2024, a non-GAAP tax rate of 7.0% has been applied to the non-GAAP financial results.

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Marvell’s financial condition and results of operations. While Marvell uses non-GAAP financial measures as a tool to enhance its understanding of certain aspects of its financial performance, Marvell does not consider these measures to be a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Consistent with this approach, Marvell believes that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures to the readers of its financial statements provides such readers with useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP financial measures, allows for greater transparency in the review of its financial and operational performance.

Externally, management believes that investors may find Marvell’s non-GAAP financial measures useful in their assessment of Marvell’s operating performance and the valuation of Marvell. Internally, Marvell’s non-GAAP financial measures are used in the following areas:

  • Management’s evaluation of Marvell’s operating performance;

  • Management’s establishment of internal operating budgets;

  • Management’s performance comparisons with internal forecasts and targeted business models; and

  • Management’s determination of the achievement and measurement of certain performance-based equity awards (adjustments may vary from award to award).

Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of Marvell’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of Marvell’s results as reported under GAAP. The exclusion of the above items from our GAAP financial metrics does not necessarily mean that these costs are unusual or infrequent.

In the three months ended January 28, 2023, $18.3 million of non-recurring income tax expense is excluded and relates to the claw back of incentive benefits that resulted from the election of a preferential temporary tax provision in Israel. Additionally, during the three months ended April 30, 2022, $213.6 million of non-recurring income tax expense associated with the extension of a tax incentive in Singapore was excluded from non-GAAP income tax expense.
