SANTA CLARA, Calif. & YOKNEAM, Israel, Oct 23, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Mellanox(R) Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ:MLNX)(TASE:MLNX), a leading supplier of semiconductor-based server and storage interconnect products, today announced record revenue for its third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008.

Third Quarter Highlights

-- Net revenue increased to a record $29.1 million, up 29% from the same quarter last year

-- Gross margins were 79.1%

-- Net income: $5.2 million GAAP, $9.6 million non-GAAP

-- Net income per diluted share: $0.16 GAAP, $0.28 non-GAAP

Financial Results

In accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the company reported record revenue of $29.1 million, up from $28.2 million in the second quarter of 2008 and up from the $22.7 million reported in the third quarter of 2007.

Gross margins in the third quarter were 79.1 percent, compared with 79.8 percent in the second quarter of 2008 and 74.9 percent reported in the third quarter a year ago. GAAP net income in the third quarter was $5.2 million or $0.16 per diluted share and included a tax expense of $2.4 million from the realization of deferred tax assets and $2.0 million of share-based compensation expense.

On a non-GAAP basis, the company recorded third quarter net income of $9.6 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, consistent with $9.6 million or $0.28 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2008, and up from $8.0 million or $0.24 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2007. These non-GAAP net income results exclude share-based compensation expenses and the realization of deferred tax assets.

Total cash and investments were $171 million at Sept. 30, 2008. The company generated $6.7 million in cash from operating activities during the quarter.

"We are very pleased to see the increased adoption of our InfiniBand products within mainstream data center business applications, highlighted by September's announcement of the new HP Oracle Database Machine, a mixture of Mellanox-based InfiniBand storage and rack servers," said Eyal Waldman, chairman, president, and CEO of Mellanox Technologies. "During the quarter, we increased our product deployments within the Embedded and HPC markets, tripled shipments of our 40Gb/s products, and were awarded two prominent 10 Gigabit Ethernet design-wins."

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 the 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 realization of certain deferred tax assets 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 nor reflect 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.

Safe Harbor Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:

All statements included or incorporated by reference in this release, other than statements or characterizations of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on our current expectations, estimates and projections about our industry and business, management's beliefs and certain assumptions made by us, all of which are subject to change.

Forward-looking statements can often be identified by words such as "anticipates," "expects," "intends," "plans," "predicts," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "may," "will," "should," "would," "could," "potential," "continue," "ongoing," similar expressions and variations or negatives of these words. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results and are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could cause our actual results to differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statement.

The risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements include the continued deployment of our interconnect adapters and switch silicon in tier-one OEM systems, into mainstream, volume applications, such as enterprise data centers, the continued growth in demand for HPC products, the continued, increased demand for industry standards-based technology, our ability to react to trends and challenges in our business and the markets in which we operate, our ability to anticipate market needs or develop new or enhanced products to meet those needs, the adoption rate of our products, our ability to establish and maintain successful relationships with our OEM partners, our ability to compete in our industry, fluctuations in demand, sales cycles and prices for our products and services and our ability to protect our intellectual property rights.

In addition, current uncertainty in the global economic environment poses a risk to the overall economy as businesses may defer purchases in response to tighter credit conditions and negative financial news, which could adversely affect demand for our products. Consequently, our results could differ materially from our prior results due to these general economic and market conditions, political events and other risks and uncertainties described more fully in our documents filed with or furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

More information about the risks, uncertainties and assumptions that may impact our business is set forth in our Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 5, 2008 and our Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 24, 2008, including "Risk Factors".

(1)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. Because the shares issued pursuant to our initial
public offering were issued, and all of our then outstanding
preferred shares converted into ordinary shares on February 13,
2007, those shares were adjusted for the amount of time they were
outstanding during the 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.
(2)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.
