Brocade Trims Quarterly Sales Forecast

Brocade now expects revenue for its fiscal quarter ending 30-April-2016 to be in the range of $518 million to $528 million, compared with the range of $542 million to $562 million in its previous guidance. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share for the second fiscal quarter is expected to be within the range of $0.21 to $0.23, compared with the range of $0.22 to $0.24 expected previously.


"Consistent with the general softness in IT spending reported by many of our partners and peers, we expect revenue for the quarter to fall short of our original expectations," said Lloyd Carney, CEO of Brocade. "This is largely the result of weaker than anticipated SAN revenue. In addition, IP Networking headwinds, noted on our fiscal Q1 2016 earnings call in February, continue to negatively impact our sales, particularly in our service provider and U.S. federal business. We are addressing these near-term challenges by continuing our focus on sales execution in this weaker demand environment, maintaining prudent expense controls and managing our investments in line with our stated priorities. We continue to execute on our strategy to build a pure-play networking company for the digital transformation era that expands our market reach, diversifies our revenue mix, and creates exciting, incremental opportunities for growth."
