NVIDIA Revises Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2009 Revenue Guidance

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NVIDIA Corporation, the world leader in visual computing technologies, today revised its revenue guidance for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 ending January 25, 2009. Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 is expected to be lower than guidance provided during its third quarter fiscal 2009 financial conference call held November 6, 2008. Total revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 is now expected to decline 40 percent to 50 percent sequentially as a result of further weakness in end-user demand and inventory reductions by NVIDIA's channel partners in the global PC supply chain.
