FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA—NOVEMBER 6, 2008—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA) today reported financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 ended October 26, 2008.
For the third quarter of fiscal 2009, revenue was $897.7 million compared to $1.12 billion for the third quarter of fiscal 2008, a decrease of 20 percent. For the nine months ended October 26, 2008, revenue increased to $2.94 billion compared to $2.90 billion for the nine months ended October 28, 2007, an increase of 2 percent.
During the third quarter of fiscal 2009, NVIDIA recorded an $8.3 million charge against operating expenses related to restructuring costs in connection with its workforce reduction. These pre-tax charges are comprised of severance and related expenses.
NVIDIA's results for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), included net income of $61.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009, which excludes stock-based compensation charges, a non-recurring charge against cost of revenue related to a royalty dispute, a restructuring charge against operating expenses, and the associated tax impact, was $111.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share.
GAAP net income for the nine months ended October 26, 2008 was $117.6 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared to $540.7 million, or $0.89 per diluted share, for the nine months ended October 28, 2007. Non-GAAP net income for the nine months ended October 26, 2008, which excludes stock-based compensation charges, a non-recurring charge against cost of revenue related to a royalty dispute, a non-recurring warranty charge against cost of revenue, a restructuring charge against operating expenses, and the associated tax impact was $397.7 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, compared to $626.7 million, or $1.06 per diluted share, for the nine months ended October 28, 2007.
"We made good progress on multiple fronts during the quarter," said Jen-Hsun Huang, president and CEO of NVIDIA. "Improving gross margin while managing operating expenses enabled us to significantly improve our operating fundamentals. We transitioned our performance segment GPUs to 55 nanometers and are now poised to recapture lost share. We entered the fastest growing segment of the PC market with our first notebook chipset for Intel processors, and delivered on several exciting new growth initiatives – 3-way SLI for the Intel Core i7 processor platform, Quadro CX for Adobe CS4 creative professionals and the Tesla supercomputing processor."

To supplement the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income presented in accordance with GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of certain components of financial performance. These non-GAAP measures include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted net income per share. In order for our investors to be better able to compare our current results with those of previous periods, we have shown a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures. These reconciliations adjust the related GAAP financial measures to exclude stock-based compensation, a non-recurring charge against cost of revenue related to a royalty dispute, a non-recurring warranty charge against cost of revenue, a restructuring charge against operating expenses, and the associated tax impact, where applicable. We believe the presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures enhances the user's overall understanding of our historical financial performance. The presentation of our non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, and our non-GAAP measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.
