Brocade Posts Q4 Revenue of $589 Million, up 4% YoY

Brocade reported fourth quarter revenue of $589 million, an increase of 4% year-over-year and 7% quarter-over-quarter. Revenue for fiscal year 2015 was $2,263 million, up 2% year-over-year. The resulting GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.20 for the fourth quarter and $0.79 for fiscal year 2015, up 6% and up 48% year-over-year, respectively.

"Fiscal 2015 was a productive year in which we achieved many significant milestones," said Lloyd Carney, CEO of Brocade. "We delivered annual revenue growth in fiscal 2015, with a year-over-year revenue increase in each fiscal quarter. We grew our non-GAAP EPS by 12% for the fiscal year, delivering more than a dollar per share for the first time. We continued to expand our portfolio of software and hardware products through both technology innovation and strategic acquisitions. Looking forward, these investments create new opportunities for us to continue to grow revenue and EPS in 2016 and beyond."

SAN product revenue for Q4 was $325 million, flat year-over-year and up 5% quarter-over-quarter. The Q4 year-over-year product revenue performance reflects a 14% increase in director sales and a 1% increase in embedded switch sales, offset by a 12% decrease in switch sales. For fiscal year 2015, SAN product revenue was $1,301 million, down 2% year-over-year, primarily due to lower switch and embedded switch sales, partially offset by higher director sales.

IP Networking product revenue for Q4 was $170 million, up 12% year-over-year and 10% quarter-over-quarter. The Q4 year-over-year increase was primarily driven by a 28% increase in Ethernet switch sales and improved software sales, partially offset by a 20% decline in router revenue. For fiscal year 2015, IP Networking product revenue was $601 million, up 14% year-over-year due to stronger switch, router, and software sales.
