NVIDIA Announces Financial Results for Second Quarter Fiscal 2019

  • Record revenue from all platforms – Datacenter, Gaming, Professional Visualization, Automotive
  • Revenue of $3.12 billion, up 40 percent from a year ago
  • GAAP EPS of $1.76, up 91 percent from a year ago

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today reported revenue for the second quarter ended July 29, 2018, of $3.12 billion, up 40 percent from $2.23 billion a year earlier, and down 3 percent from $3.21 billion in the previous quarter.

GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were $1.76, up 91 percent from $0.92 a year ago and down 11 percent from $1.98 in the previous quarter. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $1.94, up 92 percent from $1.01 a year earlier and down 5 percent from $2.05 in the previous quarter. 

“Growth across every platform – AI, Gaming, Professional Visualization, self-driving cars – drove another great quarter,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “Fueling our growth is the widening gap between demand for computing across every industry and the limits reached by traditional computing. Developers are jumping on the GPU-accelerated computing model that we pioneered for the boost they need.

“We announced Turing this week. Turing is the world’s first ray-tracing GPU and completes the NVIDIA RTX platform, realizing a 40-year dream of the computer graphics industry. Turing is a giant leap forward and the greatest advance for computing since we introduced CUDA over a decade ago.”

Capital Return
During the first half of fiscal 2019, NVIDIA returned $837 million to shareholders through a combination of $655 million in share repurchases and $182 million in quarterly cash dividends.

For fiscal 2019, NVIDIA intends to return $1.25 billion to shareholders through ongoing quarterly cash dividends and share repurchases.

NVIDIA will pay its next quarterly cash dividend of $0.15 per share on September 21, 2018, to all shareholders of record on August 30, 2018.

NVIDIA’s outlook for the third quarter of fiscal 2019 is as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be $3.25 billion, plus or minus two percent.
     
  • GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be 62.6 percent and 62.8 percent, respectively, plus or minus 50 basis points.
     
  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $870 million and $730 million, respectively.
     
  • GAAP and non-GAAP other income and expense are both expected to be income of approximately $20 million.

  • GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates are both expected to be 9 percent, plus or minus one percent, excluding any discrete items. GAAP discrete items include excess tax benefits or deficiencies related to stock-based compensation, which are expected to generate variability on a quarter by quarter basis.

Recent Highlights
This week, NVIDIA reinvented computer graphics with the launch of its Turing™ GPU architecture, the company’s most important innovation since the invention of the CUDA® GPU more than a decade ago. Turing is the world’s first ray-tracing GPU. It features new RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing and new Tensor Cores for AI inferencing -- which, together for the first time, make real-time ray tracing possible – as well as more powerful compute for simulation and enhanced rasterization. Turing completes the NVIDIA RTX™ platform, a new hybrid rendering graphics approach that combines rasterization, ray tracing, compute and AI to enable real-time ray tracing, the Holy Grail of computer graphics. Turing will reset the look of video games and open up the $250 billion visual effects industry to GPUs.

NVIDIA Research continues to push the possibilities of AI with deep learning inventions such as a new technique that produces high-quality slow-motion video from standard slow-motion video; a new technique that cleans up grainy or pixelated photos simply by looking at corrupted photos; and a new method to train robots to carry out actions by observing human activity. Its work received four honors at the recent Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Conference. It also received a $23 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to work with a team of university and industry researchers to develop post-Moore’s law systems.

Other highlights of each market platform since the first quarter earnings release include:

Conference Call and Webcast Information
NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2019 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2:30 p.m. Pacific time (5:30 p.m. Eastern time). To listen to the conference call, dial (877) 223-3864 in the United States or (574) 990-1377 internationally, and provide the following conference ID: 3298827. A live webcast (listen-only mode) of the conference call will be accessible at NVIDIA’s investor relations website, http://investor.nvidia.com, and at www.streetevents.com. The webcast will be recorded and available for replay until NVIDIA’s conference call to discuss its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2019.

Non-GAAP Measures
To supplement NVIDIA’s Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets presented in accordance with GAAP, the company uses non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP other income (expense), non-GAAP income tax expense, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income, or earnings, per diluted share, non-GAAP diluted shares, and free cash flow. In order for NVIDIA’s investors to be better able to compare its current results with those of previous periods, the company has shown a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations adjust the related GAAP financial measures to exclude stock-based compensation expense, legal settlement costs, acquisition-related costs, contributions, gains from non-affiliated investments, interest expense related to amortization of debt discount, debt-related costs, and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable. Weighted average shares used in the non-GAAP diluted net income per share computation includes the anti-dilution impact of our Note Hedge. Free cash flow is calculated as GAAP net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment and intangible assets. NVIDIA believes the presentation of its non-GAAP financial measures enhances the user’s overall understanding of the company’s historical financial performance. The presentation of the company’s non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the company’s financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the company’s non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
