Cavium Networks Announces Financial Results for Q4 2009

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. January 28, 2010
– Cavium Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAVM), a leading provider of semiconductor products that enable intelligent processing for networking, communications and the connected home, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter of 2009 ended December 31, 2009.
Revenue in the fourth quarter of 2009 was $32.1 million, a 24% sequential increase from the $25.9 million reported for the third quarter of 2009 and an increase of 45% from the $22.2 million reported for the fourth quarter of last year. Our results for the fourth quarter were slightly favorable to the positive pre-announcement we made on December 17, 2009 regarding expectations for the quarter.

Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2009, on a GAAP basis, was $4.5 million, or $0.11 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.2 million, or $0.10 per share in the third quarter of 2009, and net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of last year. Gross margins were 51.5% in the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to 51.5% in the third quarter of 2009 and 49.8% in the fourth quarter of 2008. Total cash and cash equivalents were $58.9 million at December 31, 2009.

Non-GAAP Results
Cavium Networks believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company's financial condition and results of operations. These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. Non-GAAP financial measures in the fourth quarter of 2009 exclude expenses totaling $8.3 million related to stock-based compensation and related payroll expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets and acquisition related compensation expense and other acquisition related expenses. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2009, on a non-GAAP basis, was $3.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.8 million, or $0.02 per share in the third quarter of 2009 and net income of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of last year. Gross margins, on a non-GAAP basis, were 58.9% in the fourth quarter of 2009 compared to 55.7% in the third quarter of 2009.

“We had record sales this quarter due to growth across multiple markets, especially in the enterprise and data center markets. We had record bookings and design wins during the quarter. New product ramps are in early stages at a number of tier-1 customers and this is driving higher revenue and growth rates for us. Non-GAAP gross margins have continued to expand continuing the trend of last few quarters, and increased 320 basis points sequentially due to improved product mix, reduced product costs as well as improved manufacturing overhead absorption. The increased sales along with expanding gross margins significantly improved sequential operating performance. Non-GAAP operating margins increased from 4% in the third quarter to 12% this quarter, showing the leverage in our operating model.” said Syed Ali, president and CEO of Cavium Networks. “We have recently introduced a number of new products, including our Next Generation OCTEON™ II family of multi-core processors (from 1 to 32 cores), our NITROX DPI Family of Layer 7 Content Processors, as well as our new ECONA ARM-based processors network for the connected home and office applications and the PureVu family of products for highly interactive video applications and display. We demonstrated the ECONA and PureVu products at the CES show in January and customer response has been extremely positive”.
