FISCAL SECOND QUARTER 2014 GAAP FINANCIAL RESULTS

FISCAL SECOND QUARTER 2014 NON-GAAP FINANCIAL RESULTS
Non-GAAP net loss for the fiscal second quarter of 2014 was $6.4 million, or a net loss per diluted share of $0.06, compared to non-GAAP net income of $13.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share in the same quarter of 2013.

"I am pleased with our execution this past quarter as well as our progress in rounding out a world-class executive team with strong operational experience," said Shane Robison, Fusion-io chairman and chief executive officer. "Our second quarter results demonstrate validation of our go-to-market strategy, continued traction with our OEM and ISV partners, and we are continuing to diversify our customer base, with nearly 6,000 end-user customers worldwide now using Fusion ioMemory-based solutions to accelerate their data center applications."

Ted Hull, Fusion-io chief financial officer, added: "We delivered 10% revenue growth over the prior quarter while maintaining a healthy gross margin due to a strong mix of enterprise customers in the quarter. We added $19 million in cash during the second quarter, bringing our total of cash and cash equivalents to $244 million. We believe these results underscore a solid foundation from which we can continue to focus on capturing the opportunity flash creates for data center transformation."

Third quarter of fiscal year 2014:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin is expected to be 51 to 53%.

FUSION-IO ANALYST DAY
Fusion-io is holding an Analyst Day in Salt Lake City at 2:00 p.m. MST on Thursday, February 6, 2014. A webcast of the Analyst Day will be available at http://investor.fusionio.com.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
Fusion-io uses certain non-GAAP financial measures in this release. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company's performance, financial position, or cash flows that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP. Reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP measures can be found in the accompanying tables and on the investor relations page of our website at www.fusionio.com. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures differ from GAAP measures with the same captions, may differ from non-GAAP financial measures with the same or similar captions that are used by other companies, and do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting.

Fusion-io's management uses the non-GAAP financial measures in the accompanying schedules to gain an understanding of Fusion-io's comparative operating performance and future prospects, and utilizes these measures in its internal financial statements for purposes of its internal budgets and financial goals. Management also believes that the exclusion of the items described below provides an additional measure of the company's operating results and facilitates comparisons of Fusion-io's core operating performance against prior periods and business model objectives. Management believes that investors should have access to the same set of tools that management uses to analyze Fusion-io's results. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP. Fusion-io endeavors to compensate for the limitation of the non-GAAP measures presented by also providing the most directly comparable GAAP measures and descriptions of the reconciling items and adjustments to derive the non-GAAP measures.  

For all periods presented:

  • Non-GAAP gross margin is calculated as non-GAAP gross profit divided by GAAP revenue. Non-GAAP gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit excluding the effects of stock-based compensation expense and amortization of intangible assets.
  • Non-GAAP operating margin is calculated as non-GAAP income (loss) from operations divided by GAAP revenue. Non-GAAP income (loss) from operations consists of GAAP income (loss) from operations excluding the effects of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and acquisition related expenses.
  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) is calculated as GAAP net income (loss) excluding the effects of stock-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition related expenses, and tax provision adjustments related to stock-based awards.
  • Non-GAAP net income (loss) per diluted share is calculated as non-GAAP net income (loss) divided by GAAP weighted-average diluted shares outstanding.

The accompanying tables provide more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures described above and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. With respect to our expectations under "Business Outlook" above, reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges which are excluded from these non-GAAP measures. The effects of stock-based compensation expense specific to non-employee common stock options are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant impact on our GAAP financial results.

RECLASSIFICATION
Certain expense amounts previously reported as cost of revenue, sales and marketing, research and development, and general and administrative expenses have been reclassified within those categories to conform to fiscal year 2014 presentation. The reclassifications did not change amounts previously reported as income (loss) from operations and net income (loss).
