Brocade Posts Q3 Revenue of $552 Million

Brocade reported Q3 revenue of $552 million, up 1% year over year and up 1% sequentially. The company reported GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.21, up from $0.20 in Q3 2014 and up from $0.18 in Q2 2015. Non-GAAP diluted EPS was $0.27 for Q3 2015, up from $0.23 in Q3 2014 and up from $0.22 in Q2 2015.


"I am pleased with our Q3 2015 financial results as we delivered improved profitability and higher revenue year over year," said Lloyd Carney, CEO of Brocade. "Our IP Networking revenue growth of 16% continues to outpace the market with strong performance from both service provider and U.S. federal customers. As the storage market evolves, our SAN business continues to demonstrate the vital role of Fibre Channel as customers connect both traditional disk storage and next-generation flash arrays. Brocade is well positioned with our customers, partners, and products heading into the final quarter of our fiscal year."

Some highlights:

  • SAN product revenue was $309 million, down 5% year over year. The decline was primarily the result of softer demand for embedded and fixed-configuration Fibre Channel switches, partially offset by growth in director revenue. The sequential revenue decline of 1% was consistent with normal fiscal Q3 seasonality.
  • IP Networking product revenue was $154 million, up 16% year over year. The growth was across each product category with router sales up 35%, switch sales up 6%, and higher software networking revenue. The increased revenue year over year was primarily from service providers, up 43%, and U.S. federal, up 32%, partially offset by a decline in enterprise revenue of 3%. Sequentially, IP Networking revenue increased 6% due to higher switch revenue, which was up 26%, as well as higher software networking revenue, partially offset by lower routing revenue, which was down 23% primarily due to the timing of large service provider orders. Q3 2015 included a full quarter of revenue from the virtual application delivery software acquired in Q2 2015.
