NVIDIA posts Q4 2013 earnings $11 billion in revenue, $174 million in profit

Earnings may be down slightly sequentially for the graphics and mobile CPU powerhouse, but things are still looking good compared to the same period last year. For the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013 NVIDIA is reporting $1.1 billion in revenue, a small dip from last quarter's record $1.2 billion, but up from 2012's $950 million. That's an increase of 16.1 percent year-over-year and, perhaps most importantly, net income was up 50 percent to $174 million. That does, however, mark a significant drop from Q3's $209 million in profits. Still, while it didn't offer specific numbers in its press release (those may come during the company's earnings call later today), NVIDIA declared that its Tegra business was continuing to grow. And its GPU division continued to put up impressive numbers, raking in $3.2 billion for the year, despite a sagging PC market. If you'd like to dig into all the financial particulars check out the PR after the break.

Update: In its earnings call, NVIDIA said Tegra products for smartphones and tablets, which include recent Windows RT models, have risen 50 percent year-over-year to around $540 million. NVIDIA is also currently sampling 4G LTE modems with its Tegra 4 processor, which was announced at CES this year. CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that "LTE modems will allow Tegra to enter into new markets where LTE is necessary." Later in the call, Huang gave praise to the much-hyped Project Shield, stating that the portable console will be a great companion device for GeForce, thus enhancing their case for the GPU. "We have more than just Android application processors," he said. "We have Android, we have Windows RT, we have Shield. Tegra is not just for smartphones."

Our outlook for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 is as follows:


-- Revenue is expected to be $940 million, plus or minus two percent.


-- GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be flat relative to
the prior quarter, at 52.9 percent and 53.2 percent, respectively.


-- GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $430 million;
non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be approximately $395
million.


-- GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for the first quarter and annual fiscal
2014 are both expected to be 16 percent, plus or minus one percentage
point. This estimate excludes any discrete tax events that may occur
during a quarter which, if realized, may increase or decrease our
actual effective tax rates in such quarter.

We estimate depreciation and amortization for the first quarter to be approximately $59 million to $61 million. Capital expenditures are expected to be in the range of $55 million to $65 million.

Diluted shares for the first quarter are expected to be approximately 619 million.

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2013 Highlights:


-- NVIDIA's customers brought three Windows RT devices to market -- Asus
VivoTab RT, IdeaPad Yoga 11 from Lenovo, and Microsoft Surface RT

Conference Call and webcast Information NVIDIA will conduct a conference call with analysts and investors to discuss its fourth quarter fiscal 2013 financial results and current financial prospects today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (5:00 p.m. Eastern Time). To listen to the call, please dial (706) 679 2572. A live webcast (listen-only mode) of the conference call will be accessible at the NVIDIA investor relations web site www.nvidia.com/ir 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 first quarter fiscal 2014.

Non-GAAP Measures To supplement NVIDIA's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations 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 tax expense, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income, or earnings, per share, 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, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, other acquisition-related costs, a contribution expense, a legal settlement charge, and the associated tax impact of these items, where applicable. 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 our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
