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.

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, litigation settlement, 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 provides 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.

Forward-Looking Statements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws that involve risks and uncertainties, including: Marvell's expectations and statements regarding its financial outlook for the second quarter of fiscal 2016; its dividend program including the declaration of, timing of, funding of, payment of and quarterly amount of dividends; and its use of non-GAAP financial measures as important supplemental information. Words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "can," "will" and similar expressions identify such forward-looking statements.  These statements are not guarantees of results and should not be considered as an indication of future activity or future performance. Actual events or results may differ materially from those described in this press release due to a number of risks and uncertainties, including, among others: Marvell's ability to compete in products and prices in an intensely competitive industry; Marvell's reliance on the hard disk drive and mobile and wireless markets, which are highly cyclical and intensely competitive; costs and liabilities relating to current and future litigation; Marvell's reliance on a few customers for a significant portion of its revenue; Marvell's ability to develop and introduce new and enhanced products in a timely and cost effective manner and the adoption of those products in the market; seasonality in sales of consumer devices in which Marvell's products are incorporated; uncertainty in the worldwide economic conditions; risks associated with manufacturing and selling a majority of Marvell's products and Marvell's customers' products outside of the United States; and other risks detailed in Marvell's SEC filings from time to time. When Marvell files its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the first quarter of fiscal 2016, the financial statements may differ from the results disclosed in this press release because judgments and estimates that management used in preparing the financial results reported in this press release may need to be updated to the date of the filing. For other factors that could cause Marvell's results to vary from expectations, please see the risk factors identified in the Marvell's latest Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended January 31, 2015 as filed with the SEC, and other factors detailed from time to time in Marvell's filings with the SEC.
