SGI Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter of Fiscal 2015


Highest Bookings in Over 3 Years

MILPITAS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/15 -- SGI (NASDAQ: SGI), a global leader in high performance solutions for compute, data analytics, and data management, today reported financial results for its fiscal third quarter 2015 ended March 27, 2015.

Total revenue for the fiscal third quarter was $119 million, a decrease of 14% from $138 million in the previous quarter and a decrease of 5% from $124 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2014.

GAAP net loss for the fiscal third quarter was $9 million, or $(0.25) per share, compared with a GAAP net loss of $10 million, or $(0.30) per share, in the prior quarter, and a GAAP net loss of $22 million, or $(0.64) per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was $3.4 million, or $(0.10) per share, compared with a non-GAAP net income of $0.1 million, or breakeven per diluted share, in the prior quarter and a non-GAAP net loss of $7 million, or $(0.22) per share, in the year-ago period.

"Demand for our HPC solutions remained robust this quarter as bookings increased significantly, driven by multiple large program wins across the company, including our Federal business and international operations," said Jorge Titinger, President and CEO of SGI. "In addition, we received certification for our UV solution for SAP HANA for up to 16-sockets, which represents a significant milestone as we position to capture share in the In-Memory market."

"Looking at the fiscal year, it now appears likely that revenue for one of our large DoD projects will be delayed one quarter, adding to what we believe will be a strong first half of fiscal 2016. Overall, we remain encouraged by our progress in diversifying our HPC business, entering the In-Memory market with our UV products and continuing our focus on operational excellence," continued Titinger.

Forward Looking Statements

The statements made in this press release regarding projected financial results, including SGI's guidance and outlook, and certain statements made in the earnings conference call, are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933. Actual results could differ materially from those described by these statements due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to the following: substantial sales to U.S. government entities, which are subject to the government's budgetary constraints; customer concentration risks; fluctuations in the buying patterns and sizes of customer orders from one quarter to the next; increased competition causing SGI to sell products or services at lower margins than expected; lengthy acceptance cycles of SGI's products by certain customers and their effects on SGI's revenue and liquidity; development or product delivery delays, delays in obtaining necessary components from suppliers or delays in customer acceptance once products are delivered; the addition of new customers or loss of existing customers; unexpected changes in the price for, and the availability of, components from SGI's suppliers; SGI's ability to enhance its products with new and better designs and functionality; actions taken by competitors, such as new product announcements or introductions or changes in pricing; market acceptance of newer products; and risks related to SGI's term loan. Some of these risks and uncertainties are described in more detail in SGI's most recent Form 10-Q, Form 10-K and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") and are available at the SEC's web site at http://www.sec.gov. Forward-looking statements are made based on information available to the company on the date of this press release. The company assumes no obligation to update the information in this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the related earnings conference call include financial measures that are not determined in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share. These non-GAAP measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and management exercises judgment in determining which items should be excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP measures. In addition, these non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. While we believe that non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, we believe that non-GAAP measures are valuable in evaluating the company's operating performance and analyzing our business operations. Management may exclude the following items from one or more of non-GAAP measures: (1) share-based compensation; (2) amortization and impairment of intangible assets; (3) restructuring and severance charges; (4) excess and obsolete inventory write-offs; (5) gains or losses on investments; and (6) other non-recurring costs. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, a detailed reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in this press release. The adjustments made should not be construed as an inference that all such adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in this release and SGI's SEC filings.

For a full reconciliation of historical non-GAAP measures referenced in this press release or today's presentation to the comparable measures under GAAP, please refer to the company's press releases on its website at www.sgi.com.

NOTE: This presentation includes certain financial measures not in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States (non-GAAP measures).
