Income Statement Items

Revenues

Revenues for the first quarter fiscal 2022 were $458.9 million, representing a decrease from the prior quarter and the comparable prior year period of 4.0% and 3.1% respectively. The decline in revenue over both periods was primarily driven by our Service Provider segment. Overall, revenues for the prior quarter and the comparable prior year period were negatively impacted by inability to fulfill demand due to the global component supply shortage and increasing logistics delays and costs.

Gross Margins

During the first quarter fiscal 2022, gross profit was $209.5 million. GAAP gross margin of 45.6% decreased 2.5% versus the comparable prior year period GAAP gross margin of 48.2% and decreased 2.6% versus the prior quarter GAAP gross margin of 48.3%. The decline in gross profit margin for both periods was primarily driven by higher shipping costs and, to a lesser extent, changes in product mix. General transportation costs have increased materially, and we continue to incur additional costs on top of these general costs to expedite shipments.

Research and Development

During the first quarter fiscal 2022, research and development (“R&D”) expenses were $32.1 million. This reflects an increase as compared to R&D expenses of $25.8 million in the comparable prior year period and an increase as compared to R&D expenses of $31.0 million in the prior quarter. The increase in R&D expenses as compared to prior quarter and the comparable prior year period was primarily driven by higher employee related expenses, higher depreciation and amortization expense and higher professional and service-related fees.

Sales, General and Administrative

The Company’s sales, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the first quarter fiscal 2022 were $15.7 million. This reflects an increase as compared to the SG&A expenses of $12.4 million in the comparable prior year period and a decrease as compared to the SG&A expenses of $17.0 million in the prior quarter. The increase in SG&A costs as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily due to webstore-related service fees and increased marketing expenses. The decrease in SG&A costs compared to the prior quarter was primarily due to lower professional fees, partially offset by webstore-related service fees and higher marketing expenses.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

During the first quarter fiscal 2022, GAAP net income was $132.2 million and non-GAAP net income was $132.8 million. This reflects a decrease in GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income from the comparable prior year period of 15%, primarily driven by a decrease in revenues and lower gross margin. First quarter fiscal 2022 GAAP earnings per diluted share was $2.11 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $2.12. This reflects a decrease in GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share from the comparable prior year period of 13.4%.

Global Component Supply

During the three months ended September 30, 2021, we continued to experience a disruption in our supply chain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global shortage of available components. The current environment has resulted in our inability to fulfill customer orders and has increased our cost base as we have incurred, and we continue to incur, additional costs to expedite deliveries of components and services. Our future results are dependent on our ability to procure components and services and we expect the Company’s results to be negatively impacted until the ongoing supply chain and logistics issues caused by the global component supply shortage and the COVID-19 pandemic are resolved.

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, litigation settlement, BEC fraud recovery, 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 for the periods presented, are:

  • Stock-based compensation expense
  • 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.
