GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $99 million, or $0.19 per share (diluted), compared with GAAP net income of $97 million, or $0.19 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, and $53 million, or $0.11 per share (diluted), for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

"We delivered solid first quarter results, driven by better than expected demand for our LTE solutions," said Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Marvell's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Looking forward, we continue to focus on increasing our share across all our end markets and are investing appropriately in advanced technologies that will drive our success."

Marvell reports net income, basic and diluted net income per share, in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and on a non-GAAP basis as outlined below. Reconciliations of GAAP net income to non-GAAP net income for the three months ended May 3, 2014, February 1, 2014 and May 4, 2013 appear in the financial statements below. Non-GAAP net income, where applicable, excludes the effect of share-based compensation, amortization and write-off of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other exit related costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits. 

GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was 48.4 percent, compared to 48.8 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and 54.3 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.  

Non-GAAP gross margin for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was 48.8 percent, compared to 50.1 percent for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and 54.6 percent for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Shares used to compute GAAP net income per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were 521 million shares, compared with 510 million shares in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and 505 million shares in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Shares used to compute non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 were 530 million shares, compared with 523 million shares for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and 522 million shares for the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $235 million, compared to the $100 million reported in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and the $84 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Free cash flow for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $211 million, compared to the $82 million reported in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 and the $53 million reported in the first quarter of fiscal 2014. Free cash flow as presented above is defined as cash flow from operations, less capital expenditures and purchases of technology licenses reported under investing and financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows.  

Marvell paid a quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on March 27, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of March 13, 2014. Marvell intends to pay its next quarterly dividend of $0.06 per share on July 2, 2014 to all shareholders of record as of June 12, 2014.

The payment of future quarterly cash dividends on Marvell's common shares is subject to, among other things, the best interests of its shareholders, its results of operations, cash balances and future cash requirements, financial condition, developments in ongoing litigation, statutory requirements of Bermuda law, and other factors that the board of directors may deem relevant.

Conference Call

Marvell will be conducting a conference call on Thursday, May 22, 2014 at 1:45 p.m. Pacific Time to discuss results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015. Interested parties may join the conference call by dialing 1- 877-415-3184 or 1-857-244-7327, pass-code 48465186.  The call will be webcast by Thomson Reuters and can be accessed at the Marvell Investor Relations website at http://investor.marvell.com/ with a replay available following the call until June 21, 2014.    

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP financial measures exclude the effect of share-based compensation expense, amortization and write-off of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, restructuring and other exit-related costs, and certain one-time expenses and benefits that are driven primarily by discrete events that management does not consider to be directly related to Marvell's core operating performance. Non-GAAP net income per share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by non-GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted). For purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income per share, the GAAP weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) is adjusted to exclude the potential benefits of share-based compensation expected to be incurred in future periods but not yet recognized in the financial statements. The expected compensation costs are treated as proceeds assumed to be used to repurchase shares under the GAAP treasury stock method and also include the dilutive/anti-dilutive effects of common stock options and restricted stock units. 

Marvell believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provide 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, the information provided by GAAP financial measures. 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. For further information regarding why Marvell believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to Marvell's Current Report on Form 8-K filed today with the SEC. The Form 8-K is available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov as well as on the Marvell website in the Investor Relations section at www.marvell.com.
