Marvell's Quarterly Revenue Falls to $513 Million, a 35% Sequential Drop

Marvell Technology Group reported net revenue for its fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 (ended January 31, 2009.) of $513 million, a 39 percent decrease from $845 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, ended February 2, 2008, and a 35 percent sequential decrease from $791 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2009, ended November 1, 2008.


Net revenue for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2009 was $2.95 billion, an increase of approximately 2 percent over net revenue of $2.89 billion for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2008.


GAAP net loss was $65 million, or $0.11 per share (diluted), for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, compared with GAAP net income of $1 million, or essentially break-even per share, for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. GAAP net income was $71 million, or $0.11 per share (diluted) in the third quarter of fiscal 2009.


"The results for our fourth quarter reflect the challenging business environment our company, and the world, currently faces," said Dr. Sehat Sutardja, Marvell Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Notwithstanding the challenges we encountered during our fourth quarter, we were able to sustain gross margins, act quickly to lower our operating expenses and generate a healthy free cash flow. However, we believe the current economic climate will not substantially improve over the short term. Consequently, we are taking actions to re-align our business to reflect the realities of the current economic environment."


Marvell plans to reduce its global workforce by approximately 15 percent, or approximately 850 employees. Marvell estimates that the restructuring charges associated with the reduction in force and consolidation of facilities taken to date will be approximately $20 million, including approximately $14 million related to severance and other employee benefit payments and approximately $6 million related to facility consolidation. http://www.marvell.com
