BOISE, Idaho, March 30, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micron Technology, Inc., (NASDAQ:MU) today announced results of operations for its second quarter of fiscal 2016, which ended March 3, 2016. Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $2.93 billion and were 12 percent lower compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2016 and 30 percent lower compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2015. Cash flows from operations were $763 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2016.
GAAP Income and Per Share Data – On a GAAP(1) basis, net loss attributable to Micron shareholders for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $97 million, or ($0.09) per diluted share, compared to net income of $206 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016.
Non-GAAP Income and Per Share Data – On a non-GAAP(2) basis, net loss attributable to Micron shareholders for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was $48 million, or ($0.05) per diluted share, compared to net income of $249 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2016.

"Although we continue to navigate challenging market conditions, we are on track with deploying our advanced DRAM and NAND technologies and improving our cost structure," said Micron CEO Mark Durcan. "As a result, we expect to significantly improve our competitive position as we move through the second half of 2016 and beyond."
Revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were lower compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2016 primarily due to approximate 10 percent declines in both DRAM average selling prices and sales volume. Non-Volatile trade revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 declined 6 percent compared to the first quarter primarily as a result of an approximate 15 percent decline in average selling prices partially offset by an increase in sales volume. The company's overall consolidated gross margin of 20 percent for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 was 5 percent lower compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2016 primarily due to lower average selling prices partially offset by manufacturing cost reductions for Non-Volatile products.
Investments in capital expenditures for the second quarter of fiscal 2016 were $1.23 billion. The company ended the second quarter of fiscal 2016 with cash and marketable investments of $5.14 billion.
