Income Statement Items

Revenues

Revenues for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 were $477.9 million, representing an increase from the comparable prior year period of 51.5% and an increase from the prior quarter of 2.3%. On a full year basis, revenues for fiscal 2021 were $1.9 billion, representing a 47.8% increase as compared to full year fiscal 2020.

Gross Margins

Fourth quarter fiscal 2021 gross profit was $230.7 million. GAAP gross margin of 48.3% increased 0.1% versus the comparable prior-year period of 48.2% and increased 0.6% versus the prior quarter of 47.7%. On a full year basis, fiscal 2021 GAAP gross profit was $912.3 million. Fiscal 2021 GAAP gross margin of 48.1% increased 0.8% versus the comparable prior year period GAAP gross margin of 47.3%.

The increase in GAAP gross margin for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily driven by favorable changes in product mix and lower tariffs on United States imports, offset in part by higher shipping costs and higher indirect costs.

The increase in GAAP gross margin for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 as compared to the prior quarter was primarily driven by favorable changes in product mix, offset in part by higher indirect costs and shipping costs.

The increase in GAAP gross margin for full fiscal 2021 versus full fiscal 2020 was primarily driven by favorable changes in product mix, offset in part by higher shipping costs.

Research and Development

During the fourth quarter fiscal 2021, research and development (“R&D”) expenses were $31.0 million. This reflects an increase as compared to the R&D expenses of $23.4 million in the comparable prior year period and R&D expenses of $30.5 million in the prior quarter. On a full year basis, fiscal 2021 R&D expenses were $116.2 million, reflecting an increase versus fiscal 2020 R&D expense of $89.4 million.

The increase in R&D expense for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily driven by higher employee-related expenses, professional and service-related fees, depreciation and amortization expense.

The increase in R&D expense for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 as compared to the prior quarter was primarily driven by higher professional and service-related fees, offset in part by lower non-recurring engineering ("NRE") expense.

The increase in R&D expense for fiscal 2021 versus fiscal 2020 was primarily driven by higher employee-related expenses, NRE expense, professional and service-related fees, rent expense, depreciation and amortization expense.

Sales, General and Administrative

The Company’s sales, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses for the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 were $17.0 million. This reflects an increase of $6.5 million as compared to the SG&A expenses of $10.5 million in the comparable prior year period and an increase of $3.7 million as compared to the SG&A expenses of $13.3 million in the prior quarter. On a full year basis, fiscal 2021 SG&A expense was $53.5 million, reflecting an increase of $12.9 million as compared to the SG&A expense of $40.6 million for fiscal 2020.

The increase in SG&A costs as compared to the comparable prior year period was primarily driven by higher professional and service fees and marketing costs.

The increase in SG&A costs as compared to the prior quarter is primarily driven by higher professional and services fees and the absence of a business e-mail compromise ("BEC") recovery received in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.

The increase in fiscal 2021 SG&A expenses as compared to fiscal 2020 was primarily driven by increased professional and service fees and depreciation expense, offset in part by lower payroll related costs, a legal settlement received in the second quarter fiscal 2021 and a BEC recovery received in the third quarter fiscal 2021.

Other Expenses

The decrease in other expense reflects the absence of a $5.0 million impairment charge recorded in the second quarter fiscal 2020 related to an unrealized loss on a cost-based investment.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

During the fourth quarter fiscal 2021, GAAP net income was $154.3 million and non-GAAP net income was $154.9 million. This reflects an increase in GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income from the comparable prior year period by 66.6% and 66.2%, respectively, primarily driven by an increase in revenue and higher gross margin.

During the fourth quarter fiscal 2021 GAAP earnings per diluted share was $2.46 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share was $2.47. This reflects a 69.7% increase in GAAP earnings per share and a 69.2% increase in non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from the comparable prior-year period. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share benefited from higher net income and a reduction in GAAP and non-GAAP diluted shares outstanding.

Global Component Supply

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, we continued to experience a disruption in our supply chain as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the global availability of components. The current environment has impacted our suppliers' ability to manufacture or provide key components and services and as a result we have incurred, and we continue to incur, additional costs to procure components and to expedite deliveries of components and services and resulted in our inability to fulfill customer orders. Our future results are dependent on our ability to procure components and services and the effects of the global component supply shortage and the COVID-19 pandemic may not be fully reflected in the Company's financial results until future periods.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses and gains such as stock-based compensation expense, BEC fraud recovery, Litigation settlement, impairment of cost-based investment and the tax effects of these non-GAAP adjustments.

Reconciliations of the adjustments to GAAP results for the periods presented are provided above. In addition, an explanation of the ways in which management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management’s decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under the paragraphs below.

Usefulness of Non-GAAP Financial Information to Investors

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses, significant items that we believe are important to understanding our financial, and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our board of directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes that the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts or timing may vary significantly depending upon the Company’s activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of the Company’s operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share

We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of certain adjustments and the tax effect of those adjustments. Items excluded from net income are:

  • Stock-based compensation expense
  • Business e-mail compromise ("BEC") fraud recovery
  • Litigation settlement
  • Impairment of cost-based investment
  • Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments, applying the principles of ASC 740

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative to, GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results.

For more information on the non-GAAP adjustments, please see the table captioned “Reconciliation of GAAP Net Income to non-GAAP Net Income” included in this press release.
