Income Statement Items

Revenues

Revenues for the second quarter fiscal 2020 were $308.3 million, representing a decrease from the prior quarter of 4.6% and an increase from the comparable prior year period of 0.3%. Revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2020 were $631.6 million, representing an increase of 7.0% from the first six months of fiscal 2019. The fiscal second quarter sequential decrease in revenue was primarily due to distributor ordering patterns related to our Service Provider Technology products.

Gross Margins

During the second quarter fiscal 2020, GAAP gross profit was $145.1 million. GAAP gross margin of 47.1% increased 1.5% versus the comparable prior year period GAAP gross margin of 45.6% and increased 0.3% versus the prior quarter GAAP gross margin of 46.8%. The increase in gross profit percentage for the second quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the comparable prior-year period and the prior quarter was primarily driven by favorable changes in product mix, partially offset by higher tariffs, increased inventory reserves and higher indirect costs.

Research and Development

During the second quarter fiscal 2020, research and development (“R&D”) expenses were $24.0 million. This reflects an increase as compared to the R&D expenses of $20.0 million in the comparable prior year period and an increase as compared to R&D expenses of $20.3 million in the prior quarter. Increased costs in second quarter fiscal 2020 as compared to the comparable prior year period and prior quarter is primarily driven by higher employee-related expenses and other development activities.

Sales, General and Administrative

The Company’s sales, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the second quarter fiscal 2020 were $9.0 million. This reflects a decrease as compared to the SG&A expenses of $10.6 million in the comparable prior year period and a decrease as compared to the SG&A expenses of $10.5 million in the prior quarter. The decrease in SG&A costs as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily due to lower professional fees offset, in part by higher marketing expense. The decrease in SG&A expenses as compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to a decrease in both professional fees and bad debt expense.

Other Expenses

The second quarter fiscal 2020 included a $5.0 million impairment charge related to an unrealized loss on a cost-based investment. The second quarter fiscal 2019 included an $18 million expense arising from the settlement of a lawsuit.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

During the second quarter fiscal 2020, GAAP net income was $85.8 million and non-GAAP net income was $91.4 million. GAAP earnings per diluted share was $1.32 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $1.40.

Comparing the second quarter fiscal 2020 with the second quarter fiscal 2019, the 21.1% increase in GAAP earnings per diluted share was primarily driven by the absence of the $18 million litigation settlement made in fiscal 2019 and decreased shares outstanding, partially offset by increased operating costs and interest expense, as well as an impairment charge to a cost-based investment. Comparing the second quarter fiscal 2020 with the second quarter fiscal 2019, the 5.3% increase in non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was primarily driven by an increase in gross margin and a decrease in shares outstanding, partially offset by increased operating costs and interest expense.

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.
