Cavium Announces Financial Results for Q4 2012

SAN JOSE, Calif., January 31, 2013 – Cavium, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of highly integrated semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications, and the digital home, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012 ended December 31, 2012.

Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $66.4 million, an 8.7% sequential increase from the $61.1 million reported in the third quarter of 2012.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012, on GAAP basis was $78.8 million, or $(1.56) per diluted share compared to $8.1 million, or $(0.16) per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 included a non-cash charge of $43.5 million to provide for a valuation allowance for US net deferred tax assets, and a $33.3 million non-cash charge related to goodwill and other intangible asset impairment. Gross margins were 62.3% in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 59.4% in the third quarter of 2012. Total cash and cash equivalents were $76.8 million at December 31, 2012.

Cavium established a full valuation allowance against its US net deferred tax assets, which resulted in a one-time, non-cash charge of $43.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. Had Cavium not established the valuation allowance, it would have recognized a tax benefit of $2.1 million.  This tax benefit along with the $43.5 million valuation allowance, produced a net tax expense of $41.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The decision to establish the valuation allowance was based on an assessment made at year-end that considered factors such as 2012 actual results as well as projected US income, and does not preclude Cavium from using its loss carry-forwards or other deferred tax assets in the future.

Cavium recently restructured its Software and Services group. As a result of performing an annual goodwill impairment test in the fourth quarter of 2012, and the impact of the Software and Services group restructuring, Cavium determined that Software and Services goodwill and certain intangible assets were impaired and recorded a $33.3 million, non-cash, goodwill and intangible asset charge in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP Results

Cavium believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to Cavium’s financial condition and results of operations. These measures should only be used to evaluate Cavium’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Non-GAAP financial measures in the fourth quarter of 2012 exclude expenses totaling $89.5 million related to: valuation allowance on deferred tax assets of $43.5 million; goodwill and intangible impairment of $33.3 million; $8.6 million related to stock-based compensation and related payroll taxes; and $4.1 million related to amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition and other expenses as detailed in the reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results provided in the financial statements portion of this release.

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $10.6 million or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $7.8 million or $0.15 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2012.  Gross margins, on a non-GAAP basis, were 64.5% and operating margins (non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of revenue), on a non-GAAP basis, were 13.8% in the fourth quarter of 2012.
