ALISO VIEJO, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2015 — QLogic Corp. (Nasdaq: QLGC), a leading supplier of high performance network infrastructure solutions, today announced its first quarter financial results for the period ended June 28, 2015.
Net revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $113.4 million compared to $119.4 million in the same quarter last year. Revenue from Advanced Connectivity Platforms was $102.6 million during the first quarter of fiscal 2016 compared to $104.7 million in the same quarter last year.
Net income on a GAAP basis for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $2.6 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to $6.0 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Net income on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of fiscal 2016 was $16.5 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $18.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.
“We are disappointed with our first quarter financial performance. Our first quarter results were adversely impacted by lower than expected demand due to weakness in our traditional enterprise server and storage markets, and operational issues including an inventory build-up primarily at a major OEM customer that was not identified on a timely basis,” said Prasad Rampalli, president and chief executive officer, QLogic. “We have taken actions to address these execution areas where we fell short and also plan to take actions over the next few months to reduce our operating costs by streamlining our business and prioritizing our investments. We remain committed to our strategy and will continue to focus on our core and expansion markets to deliver long-term growth and enhance shareholder value.”
QLogic uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements based on GAAP. A summary of these non-GAAP financial measures and a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, as well as a description of the reasons that management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and the additional purposes for which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures, is presented in the accompanying financial schedules.
