QLogic Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2014 Results

QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq:QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 30, 2014.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $115.7 million, compared to $116.9 million in the same quarter last year, and included approximately $1 million of revenue associated with the NetXtreme II Ethernet business that was acquired from Broadcom Corporation in March 2014. Revenue from Advanced Connectivity Platforms increased to $101.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 from $97.0 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Legacy Connectivity Products was $14.6 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to $19.9 million in the same quarter last year.

“I am very pleased with our execution and financial performance during the fourth quarter. We delivered net revenue above the midpoint of our guidance range. In addition, we achieved non-GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share at the high end of our guidance range,” said Prasad Rampalli, president and chief executive officer, QLogic. “The acquisition of the NetXtreme II Ethernet business from Broadcom is both strategic and financially compelling, and positions QLogic for expanded market opportunities. We expect total revenue to grow between 10% and 12% during fiscal 2015.”

Loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 was $46.8 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $29.6 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013. Loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 included $56.5 million of special charges and $14.7 million of incremental tax charges. The special charges are comprised of $15.5 million related to restructuring activities and $41.0 million for the portion of a license payment attributed by the company to the use of the related technology in a period prior to the date of the previously announced patent license agreement. The incremental tax charges consisted of valuation allowances related to deferred tax assets for state tax credits and net operating loss carryforwards. Income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 increased to $20.8 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, from $15.6 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.

Net revenue for fiscal 2014 was $460.9 million compared to $484.5 million in fiscal 2013. Loss from continuing operations on a GAAP basis for fiscal 2014 was $18.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to income from continuing operations of $73.6 million, or $0.78 per diluted share in fiscal 2013. Income from continuing operations on a non-GAAP basis for fiscal 2014 increased to $82.8 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, from $76.1 million, or $0.81 per diluted share in fiscal 2013.

QLogic uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements based on GAAP. A summary of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as a description of the reasons that management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and the additional purposes for which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, is presented in the accompanying financial schedules.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures contained herein are a supplement to the corresponding financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). The non-GAAP financial measures presented exclude the items summarized in the above table. Management believes that adjustments for these items assist investors in making comparisons of period-to-period operating results and that these items are not indicative of the company’s on-going core operating performance.

The company has presented non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share, on a basis consistent with its historical presentation, to assist investors in understanding the company’s core income from continuing operations and core income from continuing operations per diluted share on an on-going basis. These non-GAAP financial measures may also assist investors in making comparisons of the company’s core profitability with historical periods and comparisons of the company’s core profitability with the corresponding results for competitors. Management believes that non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share are important measures in the evaluation of the company’s profitability. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the adjustments described in the above table, and thus provide an overall measure of the company’s on-going profitability and related profitability on a per diluted share basis.

Management uses non-GAAP income from continuing operations and non-GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share in its evaluation of the company’s core after-tax results of operations and trends between fiscal periods and believes that these measures are important components of its internal performance measurement process. In addition, the company prepares and maintains its budgets and forecasts for future periods on a basis consistent with these non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that providing these non-GAAP financial measures allows investors to view the company’s financial results in the way that management views the financial results.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein have certain limitations in that they do not reflect all of the costs associated with the operations of the company’s business as determined in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, investors should consider non-GAAP financial measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or as superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the company may be different from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures and why the company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, the company refers you to the Form 8-K regarding this release filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

A summary of the non-GAAP adjustments presented in the table above by the financial statement line impacted is as follows:
