Marvell Posts Revenue of $674 Million, Down 28% YoY

Marvell Technology Group reported preliminary third quarter fiscal 2016 revenue of $674 Million, down approximately 5 percent from $711 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2016, ended August 1, 2015, and down approximately 28 percent from $930 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2015, ended November 1, 2014.

In the third quarter of fiscal 2016, storage revenue declined 16% sequentially reflecting lower demand from HDD customers but was offset slightly by better-than-expected SSD controller sales.  Networking revenue in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 declined 8% sequentially reflecting continued weak demand for enterprise networking products while mobile and wireless revenue grew 15% sequentially on stronger smartphone demand, particularly in the low-end.

Marvell is restructuring its mobile handset business only. The company anticipates mobile handset platform-related revenue to decline through fiscal year 2017 due to the restructuring actions announced on September 24, 2015.
