Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2017 Financial Outlook
On November 2, 2016, Marvell announced restructuring actions to drive growth and improve profitability. These actions are expected to be fully implemented by the end of October 2017 and are expected to lower annual operating expenses from a current annualized run rate of $1.08 billion to the $820-840 million range. As a result of these actions, the company expects to incur charges of $90 million to $110 million over the next four quarters, including cash charges of $35 million to $50 million. Restructuring and restructuring-related charges include an estimate of severance, asset impairment, lease termination fees, and other costs. The firm expects to incur a portion of these charges in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017.

Marvell's fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 financial outlook also excludes the estimated results of certain non-strategic businesses that have a first half of fiscal 2017 annualized run rate of approximately $100 million in revenue and $60 million in operating expenses. These businesses will be classified as discontinued operations beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. In addition, Marvell's financial outlook does not include the potential impact of certain items such as share repurchases, acquisitions or divestitures, or further restructuring activities that may be completed after November 16, 2016.

    •    Revenue is expected to be $565 million plus or minus 2%, excluding discontinued operations and reflecting normal seasonality.
    •    GAAP and non-GAAP Gross Margins are expected to be in the range of 57% to 58%.
    •    GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $322 million to $332 million, which includes part of the restructuring charges announced on November 2, 2016.
    •    Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be $225 million to $235 million.
    •    GAAP Diluted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of ($0.01) to $0.03.
    •    Non-GAAP diluted EPS from continuing operations are expected to be in the range of $0.17 to $0.21.

Our Comments

Storage revenue (HDD, SSD, enterprise storage solutions) grew 19% Q/Q and 27% Y/Y, representing 50% of total sales, as HDD grew on improved demand,

SSD had a record quarter and grew significantly on strong SATA and PCIe demand.

The company began first production shipment of preamp.

Storage customers are Micron, Seagate, Toshiba and WD.

Abstracts of the earnings call transcript:

Matt Murphy, president and CEO:
"Our revenue came in above the high end of our guidance, growing 4% sequentially to $654 million."
Jean Hu, CFO:
"Our Q3 revenue included a $60 million of a storage shipment deferred from Q2. Normalizing that the $60 million deferred revenue between Q3 and Q2, our storage revenue in Q3 would represent an 8% sequential increase and a 21% increased year-over-year driven by higher HDD and SSD demand.
"Excluding the impact of the $60 million deferred revenue in storage, we expect our storage revenue to be down slightly in Q4 compared to Q3, but will grow year-over-year."
