Marvell Technology Group Ltd. Reports Preliminary Second Quarter of Fiscal 2016 Financial Results

Sep 11, 2015, 08:30 ET from Marvell Technology Group Ltd.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Marvell Technology Group Ltd. (NASDAQ: MRVL), a global leader in integrated silicon solutions, today reported preliminary financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2016, ended August 1, 2015.

Preliminary Second Quarter of Fiscal 2016 Financial Highlights (GAAP)

  • Revenue: Q2 FY 2016, $711 Million
  • GAAP Net Loss: Q2 FY 2016, $382 Million
  • GAAP Diluted Loss Per Share: Q2 FY 2016, $0.74

The Company also announced that the Audit Committee of the Company's Board of Directors is conducting an independent investigation of certain accounting and internal control matters in the second quarter of fiscal 2016.  Senior management has cooperated fully with the Audit Committee's investigation, and is fully committed to supporting the Audit Committee in this process.

The investigation consists of a review of certain revenue recognition issues in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 and any associated issues with whether senior management's operating style during the period resulted in an open flow of information and communication to set an appropriate tone for an effective control environment. More specifically, the investigation has focused on the approximately 7 to 8 percent of revenue recognized in the second quarter of fiscal 2016 that, based upon the original customer request date, would have been received and earned in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 and is now no longer available for receipt in that quarter.  Such percentage represents an increase over the prior four quarters and is indicative of softening demand for certain of the Company's products. This was particularly the case in the storage end market where, as a result of a weaker global economy and a slow-down in the PC market, the Company saw weaker than expected demand for HDD products as the overall total available market declined. The Audit Committee's investigation to date has revealed no material issues regarding the Company's 2016 second quarter financial results, and the Company believes the investigation will have no material impact on its previously issued financial statements.

The Audit Committee is also reviewing certain aspects of the Company's internal control over financial reporting, including controls for the establishment of reserves for litigation and whether senior management's operating style resulted in an open flow of information and communication to set an appropriate tone for an effective control environment.  The Company's review of such internal controls is ongoing and may ultimately affect management's conclusion of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of the end of the second quarter of fiscal 2016. For these reasons the Company has experienced a delay in the completion of its financial statements, Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and other related components of the Quarterly Report.

The Audit Committee and Company management are also discussing potential enhancements to the Company's internal controls and remedial actions to address the items discussed above and the adequacy of financial reporting resources. As a result, the Company is not providing any guidance as to the expected results for the third quarter of fiscal 2016 at this time.

At the conclusion of the Audit Committee's investigation, Marvell will announce the scheduling of a conference call to discuss full financial results for the second fiscal quarter of 2016.
