Micron delivered 2FQ24 revenue ($5.8 billion), gross margin and earnings per share well above the high end of guidance - $4.2 billion to $4.6 billion for sales. It has returned to profitability and delivered positive operating margin a quarter ahead of expectation.

It drove robust price increases as the supply-demand balance tightened. This improvement in market conditions was due to a confluence of factors, including strong AI server demand, a healthier demand environment in most end markets, and supply reductions across the industry.

Technology update
Micron is at the forefront of ramping most advanced technology nodes in both DRAM and NAND. Reinforcing its leadership position, over 3 quarters of its DRAM bits are now on leadingedge 1-alpha and 1fl (1-beta) nodes, and over 90% of it NAND bits are on 176-layer and 232-layer nodes. The firm expects FY24 front-end cost reductions, excluding the impact of HBM, to track in line with its long-term expectations of mid to high single digits in DRAM and low teens in NAND, supported by the continued volume ramp of 1fl DRAM and 232-layer NAND.

It continues to mature its production capability with extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUV), and have achieved equivalent yield and quality on its 1-alpha as well as 1fl nodes between EUV and non-EUV flows. It began 1y (1-gamma) DRAM pilot production using EUV and are on track for volume production in calendar 2025.

The development of firm's next-gen NAND node is on track, with volume production planned for calendar 2025. The company expects to maintain its technology leadership in NAND AI server demand is driving rapid growth in HBM (high-bandwidth memory), DDR5 (D5) and data center SSDs, which is tightening leading-edge supply availability for DRAM and NAND. This is resulting in a positive ripple effect on pricing across all memory and storage end markets. The company expects DRAM and NAND pricing levels to increase further throughout calendar year 2024 and expect record revenue and much improved profitability now in FY25.

It expects calendar 2024 industry supply to be below demand for both DRAM and NAND. Manufacturer's bit supply growth in F24 remains below its demand growth for both DRAM and NAND, and the company expects to decrease its days of inventory in FY24.
