In the second quarter, total net revenues of $122.1 million represented an increase of 2 percent over the first quarter results. On a GAAP basis, Emulex recorded net income of $5.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to first quarter GAAP income of $0.7 million, or $0.01 per share. Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $17.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, essentially flat with the $0.19 of diluted earnings per share reported in the first quarter. Cash, cash equivalents and investments at the end of the quarter totaled $211.2 million compared to $186.4 million at the end of the first quarter. Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP results are included in the accompanying financial data.
CEO Jim McCluney commented, "I'm pleased with the solid execution we were able to deliver for the second quarter, once again meeting both our top line revenue and our earnings goals. In addition to achieving our quarterly revenue and earnings objectives, we also strengthened our balance sheet, exiting the quarter with over $211 million in available cash and investments," continued McCluney.
"Looking forward, we are well positioned in 16Gb Fibre Channel to continue the share gain momentum we have delivered over the past three quarters, and with expected completion of our Endace acquisition this quarter, we will further increase our relevance as a thought leader in connectivity and management of high performance, converged Ethernet networks," McCluney concluded.
Although actual results may vary depending on a variety of factors, many of which are outside the Company's control, including uncertainty related to the macro IT spending environment, the timing of new server launches by our customers, the timing of completion of the proposed acquisition of Endace Limited and the results and related costs of ongoing patent litigation, Emulex is providing guidance for its third fiscal quarter ending March 31, 2013. For the third quarter of fiscal 2013, Emulex is forecasting total net revenues in the range of $110-$114 million. The Company expects non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.12 - $0.14 in the third quarter. Incremental to this guidance, we expect approximately $0.06 per diluted share related to the retroactive portion of the federal R&D tax credit. GAAP estimates for the third quarter reflect approximately $0.30 per diluted share in expected charges arising primarily from amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation, costs associated with the proposed acquisition of Endace and the royalties, mitigation expenses and license fees associated with the Broadcom patent litigation, as well as the associated tax impact and U. S. valuation allowance.
Emulex is a provider of converged networking solutions.
