8 Aug 2013 Santa Clara -
NVIDIA has reported revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, ended July 28, 2013, of $977.2 million, up 2.4 percent from $954.7 million in the previous quarter. NVIDIA issued revenue of $977.2 million; GAAP net income of $96.4 million, or $0.16 per diluted share; and non-GAAP net income of $133.3 million, or $0.23 per diluted share. The record GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are 55.8 percent and 56.3 percent, respectively. GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.16, up 23.1 percent from $0.13 in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.23, up 27.8 percent from $0.18 in the previous quarter.
"The GPU business continued to grow, driving our fourth consecutive quarter of record margins", stated Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. "We also began shipping GRID virtualized graphics, which puts the power of NVIDIA GPUs into the data centre. We look forward to a strong second half, with new Tegra 4 devices coming to market, SHIELD moving beyond the U.S. and broader sampling of Project Logan, our next-generation Tegra processor, which brings Kepler, the world's most advanced GPU, to mobile."
On May 14, 2013, NVIDIA executed an accelerated share repurchase (ASR) agreement with Goldman, Sachs & Co. such that NVIDIA paid Goldman Sachs $750 million and Goldman Sachs delivered 36.9 million shares on May 16, 2013. These shares were accounted for as treasury share repurchases that reduced the outstanding common shares used to calculate EPS. Upon final settlement of the ASR, Goldman Sachs may be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to NVIDIA or NVIDIA may be required to deliver shares of its common stock, or elect to make a cash payment, to Goldman Sachs, based on the terms and conditions under the ASR. NVIDIA currently expects that, at the time of settlement, Goldman Sachs will be required to deliver additional shares of common stock to NVIDIA.
NVIDIA's outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 is as follows:
- Revenue is expected to be $1.050 billion, plus or minus two percent.
- GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be approximately flat relative to the prior quarter at 56.0 percent and 56.3 percent, respectively.
- GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $460 million. Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $418 million.
- GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for the remaining half of fiscal 2014 are expected to be 16 percent, plus or minus one percent. This estimate excludes any discrete tax events that may occur during a quarter, which, if realized, may increase or decrease our actual effective tax rates in such quarter.
NVIDIA estimates depreciation and amortization for the third quarter to be approximately $62 million to $64 million. Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $60 million to $70 million.
Diluted shares for the third quarter are expected to be approximately 589 million.
