Apr 21 15
Super Micro Computer, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported net sales of $471,225,000 compared to $373,755,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $31,448,000 compared to $21,472,000 a year ago. Income before income tax provision was $31,192,000 compared to $21,326,000 a year ago. Net income was $23,056,000 or $0.44 per diluted share compared to $16,574,000 or $0.35 per diluted share a year ago. Non-GAAP income from operations was $35,014,000 compared to $24,278,000 a year ago. Non-GAAP net income was $24,925,000 compared to $17,761,000 a year ago. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share was $0.47 compared to $0.37 a year ago. The sequential decrease in revenue was primarily due to the seasonal weak quarter, compounded by the effects of the West Coast port strikes. In the third quarter, free cash flow was a positive $4.1 million, primarily due to net income of $23.1 million, a decrease in accounts receivable, offset in part by an increase in inventory, as well as building investments of $8.5 million to support the continued growth of business.
For the nine months, the company reported net sales of $1,417,561,000 compared to $1,039,133,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $105,959,000 compared to $53,719,000 a year ago. Income before income tax provision was $105,395,000 compared to $53,257,000 a year ago. Net income was $75,161,000 or $1.47 per diluted share compared to $37,608,000 or $0.82 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $9,064,000 compared to $12,474,000 a year ago. Purchases of property, plant and equipment were $24,637,000 compared to $36,779,000 a year ago. Non-GAAP income from operations was $115,686,000 compared to $61,902,000 a year ago. Non-GAAP net income was $81,614,000 compared to $43,519,000 a year ago. Non-GAAP diluted net income per share was $1.58 compared to $0.94 a year ago. Negative free cash flow for the nine months ended March 31, 2015 was $15.6 million, primarily due to the development and construction of improvements on the company's property, which is still in progress, offset in part by an increase in the company's cash provided by operating activities.
The Company expects net sales of $510 million to $560 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2015 ending June 30, 2015. The company expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of approximately $0.53 to $0.62 for the fourth quarter. The company expects the tax rate on a non-GAAP basis to be approximately 32% for the June quarter.
At the midpoint, this will represent a growth of 25% and 45% in revenue and EPS respectively from the prior year. This would make fiscal year 2015 revenues of about $2 billion and about $2.16 EPS, which would represent growth from the prior year of approximately 33% and 61% respectively.
