NVIDIA Reports Financial Results for Third Quarter Fiscal 2014
Increases Dividend; Intends to Return to Shareholders $1 Billion of Capital in Fiscal 2015

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 11/07/13 -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA)

  • Revenue of $1.054 billion.

  • GAAP net income of $118.7 million, or $0.20 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income of $153.8 million, or $0.26 per diluted share.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins of 55.4 percent and 55.7 percent, respectively.

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today reported revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2014, ended Oct. 27, 2013, of $1.054 billion, up 7.9 percent from $977.2 million in the previous quarter.

GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.20, up 25.0 percent from $0.16 in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $0.26, up 13.0 percent from $0.23 in the previous quarter.

NVIDIA also announced a 13 percent increase in the quarterly cash dividend to $0.085 per share ($0.34 per share on an annual basis) from $0.075 per share ($0.30 per share on an annual basis). NVIDIA will pay its next quarterly cash dividend of $0.085 per share on Dec. 13, 2013, to all stockholders of record on Nov. 21, 2013.

NVIDIA intends to return $1 billion in fiscal 2015 through stock repurchases and quarterly dividend payments. The company's board of directors has authorized an additional $1 billion under the company's stock repurchase program for a total of $1.286 billion available through the end of January 2016.

"Visual computing is increasingly important to more and more markets," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and chief executive officer of NVIDIA. "It's creating demand for GPUs and opening up large opportunities. The proof can be seen in the proliferation of Tegra into new verticals like automotive and set-top boxes, in our all-time high Quadro and Tesla revenues, and in the record number of customer trials for our GRID datacenter initiative. At a time when many are struggling with the decline in the mainstream PC market, our visual computing leadership has positioned us well to grow with the accelerating adoption of GPUs in the cloud and the world of connected devices."

  • Improved gaming for NVIDIA® SHIELD™ users, with the introduction of Gamepad Mapper, which expands support for thousands more Android gaming titles.
  • Launched its new flagship gaming GPU, GeForce® GTX™ 780 Ti, and the world's most powerful workstation graphics card, Quadro® K6000.
  • Introduced revolutionary G-SYNC™ technology, which eliminates onscreen tearing, stuttering and lag by synchronizing the GPU and the display.
  • Announced that VMware Horizon View, a leading virtual desktop management product, now supports NVIDIA GRID technology.

NVIDIA's outlook for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014 is as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be $1.05 billion, plus or minus two percent.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP margins are expected to be approximately 54.2 percent and 54.5 percent, respectively.

  • GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $450 million; non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $410 million.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates are expected to be 16 percent, plus or minus one percent. This estimate excludes any discrete tax events that may occur during the quarter, which, if realized, may increase or decrease our actual effective tax rates in the quarter.

Diluted shares for the fourth quarter are expected to be approximately 578.5 million.

Conference Call and Webcast Information
NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its third quarter fiscal 2014 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time). To listen to the call, please dial (212) 231-2922. A live webcast (listen-only mode) of the conference call will be accessible at the NVIDIA investor relations web site www.nvidia.com/ir and at www.streetevents.com. The webcast will be recorded and available for replay until the company's conference call to discuss its financial results for its fourth quarter fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement NVIDIA's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations and Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income tax expense, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income, or earnings, per share, and free cash flow. In order for NVIDIA's investors to be better able to compare its current results with those of previous periods, the company has shown a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations adjust the related GAAP financial measures to exclude stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, other acquisition-related costs or credits, a restructuring charge, a legal settlement, a contribution expense, and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable. Free cash flow is calculated as GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment and intangible assets. NVIDIA believes the presentation of its non-GAAP financial measures enhances the user's overall understanding of the company's historical financial performance. The presentation of the company's non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company's financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
