Netgear Reports Q2 Revenue of $204.5 million, up 24% YoY

NETGEAR posted Q2 net revenue of $204.5 million, a 24% increase as compared to $164.3 million for the second quarter ended July 1, 2007, and a 3% increase as compared to $198.2 million in the first quarter ended March 30, 2008. Q2 net income (GAAP) was $11.1 million, or $0.31 per diluted share. This compared to net income of $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2007 and to net income of $11.2 million in the first quarter of 2008. Diluted earnings per share, computed in accordance with GAAP, was $0.17 for the second quarter of 2007 and $0.31 for the first quarter of 2008.


During Q2, NETGEAR's service provider net revenue was approximately $55 million, about 27% of total net revenue, as compared to 24% in the year ago quarter, and 28% in the first quarter of 2008. In Q2, the company added TV Cabo in Portugal and Cablemas in Mexico to its service provider customer list.


"Despite a challenging market and economic environment in the U.S. and U.K., we enjoyed very healthy year on year revenue growth due to a strong performance in Asia Pacific and the successful launch of NETGEAR products in Wal-Mart stores in the U.S. However, we continue to foresee market weakness in both the U.S. and U.K. in the coming quarters. Our operating margin improved in Q2 due to successful product and operating cost reductions, strong sales of ReadyNAS and Smart Switches and the reduction in air freight costs with an increase in our on hand inventory. Looking forward, we believe continuous emphasis in R&D resulting in differentiated new products and efficient supply chain management will enable us to win in competitive and challenging market conditions," stated Patrick Lo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NETGEAR.http://www.netgear.com
