Second Quarter Fiscal 2017 Highlights

During the second quarter, NVIDIA achieved progress in each of its four major platforms:

Gaming:

Introduced the first four members of its Pascal™ family of gaming GPUs: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080 and 1070, which have set records for speed and power efficiency; GTX 1060, which delivers immersive VR at strong value; and TITAN X, the most powerful consumer GPU ever built.

Released its first game, NVIDIA VR Funhouse, which uses enhanced graphics, interactive audio and simulated physics to bring a new level of immersion to VR.

Released NVIDIA Ansel, an in-game 360° capture tool, which enables gamers to take and share screenshots of their favorite in-game moments.

Professional Visualization:

Unveiled Quadro® P6000 to power the most advanced workstations, enabling designers to manipulate complex designs up to twice as fast as before.

Introduced in partnership with SMI an innovative rendering technique that uses eye tracking to enable developers to create more immersive VR environments.

Refreshed NVIDIA DesignWorks™ and NVIDIA VRWorks™ with new SDKs and updates that bring developers enhanced capabilities for interactive ray tracing, 360° video stitching and streaming and physically based materials.

Datacenter:

Opened the path to virtualizing all enterprise applications with Tesla® M10, providing the industry’s highest user density.

Introduced Tesla P100 GPU accelerator for PCI Express-based servers, delivering substantial performance and value compared with CPU-based systems.

Unveiled its Inception Program which provides access to NVIDIA technology and expertise to support the growth of startups driving breakthroughs in deep learning and data science.

Automotive:

Initiated collaborative research in advanced self-driving technology with New York University’s pioneering deep learning team.

Conference Call and Webcast Information NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its second quarter fiscal 2017 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2 p.m. Pacific time (5 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: 47401500. 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 the company’s conference call to discuss its financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2017.

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 operating income, non-GAAP other income (expense), net, 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, legal settlement costs, product warranty charge, acquisition-related costs, contributions, restructuring and other charges, gains from non-affiliated investments, interest expense related to amortization of debt discount, 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 the company’s 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 its non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
