Financial Results
In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the company reported record revenue of $28.2 million, up from $25.2 million in the first quarter of 2008 and up 43 percent from the $19.8 million reported in the second quarter of 2007.

Gross margins in the second quarter were 79.8 percent, compared with 76.4 percent in the first quarter of 2008 and 75.1 percent reported in the second quarter a year ago. GAAP net income in the second quarter was $4.6 million or $0.14 per diluted share and included a tax expense of $3.0 million from the realization of deferred tax assets and $2.0 million of share-based compensation expense.

GAAP to Non-GAAP Reconciliation

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Mellanox uses non-GAAP measures of net income which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude share-based compensation expenses and realization of certain deferred tax assets. The company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors, as these non-GAAP results exclude expenses that are not indicative of our core operating results. Management believes it is useful to exclude share-based compensation expenses and the reversal of the valuation allowance because it enhances investors' ability to review our business from the same perspective as management, which believes that such items are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the company's business operations. Further, management believes certain non-cash charges such as share-based compensation and the realization of certain deferred tax assets do not reflect the cash operating results of the business. These measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results. These non-GAAP measures may be different than the non-GAAP measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP condensed consolidated statements of operations is also presented in the financial statements portion of this release and is posted under the “Investors” section at our web site.

*Under GAAP, shares used in computing income per share attributable to ordinary shareholders are adjusted for the amount of time they are outstanding during the period.  All shares issued during the period were adjusted for the amount of time they were outstanding during that period as part of the GAAP SHARES – BASIC calculation.  The GAAP SHARES – BASIC have been adjusted to a non-GAAP measure as if those ordinary shares were outstanding during the entire period to provide a comparable share number in future quarters.

**This adjustment adds back the GAAP effect of additional ordinary shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares from stock options had been issued under the Treasury method.
