Cray zeigt ein recht schönes, gelungenes Quartalsergebnis. Gut gemacht
Cray Inc. Reports First Quarter 2016 Financial Results
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/03/16 -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (NASDAQ: CRAY) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.
All figures in this release are based on U.S. GAAP unless otherwise noted. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP measures is included in the financial tables in this press release.
Revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $105.5 million, which compares with $79.6 million in the first quarter of 2015. Net loss for the first quarter of 2016 was $5.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $9.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP net loss was $5.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2016, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $10.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share for the same period of 2015.
Overall gross profit margin for the first quarter of 2016 was 38%, compared to 30% for the first quarter of 2015. Total non-GAAP gross profit margin percentage for the first quarter of 2016 was consistent with the GAAP result for the same period.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $49.2 million, compared to $40.9 million for the first quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $46.3 million, compared to $37.8 million for the first quarter of 2015.
As of March 31, 2016, cash, investments and restricted cash totaled $320 million. Working capital increased to $418 million compared to $415 million at the end of 2015.
"We are off to a good start to our year," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "We completed several large installations during the first quarter including at the Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center. Our momentum in the global weather forecasting market also continued as we completed acceptances at Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, and the U.K.'s Met Office; and Germany's National Meteorological Service recently chose to substantially upgrade its Cray systems. With major refreshes in each of our product lines expected in 2016 and more contracts yet to secure in the coming quarters, we have a lot of work left to do in order to achieve our outlook for the year. That being said, I'm pleased with the progress we have made to date as we drive to continue to grow our business."
OutlookFor 2016, a wide range of results remains possible for each remaining quarter and the year.
While the Company continues to expect revenue to be in the range of $825 million for the year, there is an increased level of risk to achieving this target. This increased risk is driven by the Company's reliance on key third-party components, some of which have already been delayed, and the level and timing of new orders. Revenue is expected to be in the range of $100 million for the second quarter and the fourth quarter is anticipated to be about 60% of total revenue for the year. Non-GAAP gross margin for the year is expected to be in the range of 33%. Non-GAAP operating expenses for the year are anticipated to be about $205 million. Based on this outlook, the Company expects to improve its GAAP and non-GAAP operating profit margins for 2016 as compared to 2015.
Cray's 2016 effective non-GAAP tax rate is expected to be about 10%.
Actual results for any future periods are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray's business.
Conference Call InformationCray will host a conference call today, Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. PDT (4:30 p.m. EDT) to discuss its first quarter ended March 31, 2016 financial results. To access the call, please dial into the conference at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the call at (855) 894-4205.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial MeasuresThis press release contains "non-GAAP financial measures" under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. A reconciliation of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, to non-GAAP results is included in the financial tables included in this press release. Management believes that the non-GAAP financial measures that we have set forth provide additional insight for analysts and investors and facilitate an evaluation of Cray's financial and operational performance that is consistent with the manner in which management evaluates Cray's financial performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, as they exclude the financial impact of transactions necessary or advisable for the conduct of Cray's business, such as the granting of equity compensation awards, and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Hence, to compensate for these limitations, management does not review these non-GAAP financial metrics in isolation from its GAAP results, nor should investors. Non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. This non-GAAP information supplements, and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with, or disclosures required by GAAP. These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP numbers at the end of this release, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this non-GAAP information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in Cray's SEC filings.
Additionally, we have not quantitatively reconciled the non-GAAP guidance measures disclosed under "Outlook" to their corresponding GAAP measures because we do not provide specific guidance for the various reconciling items such as stock-based compensation, adjustments to the provision for income taxes, amortization of intangibles, costs related to acquisitions, purchase accounting adjustments, and gain on significant asset sales, as certain items that impact these measures have not occurred, are out of our control or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, reconciliations to the non-GAAP guidance measures are not available without unreasonable effort. Please note that the unavailable reconciling items could significantly impact our financial results.

Echt fürchterlich, der Kursabsturz. Bin für diesmal froh, dies ausgelassen zu haben. Aber an einer Aufsammlung bei Gelegenheit wäre ich schon interessiert. Pressiert aber nicht so. hat man hier etwa das Q1-2016 verglichen mit dem Q4-2015?
Ja, genau, das tun sie. Sowas hat mir ein eifriger Maikäfer vergangene Woche vorgesummt. Trotzdem, war das Ergebnis absolut gut im Vergleich zum Q1/2015. Mit dem vorangangenen vierten Quartal sollte man hier nie vergleichen, denn dieses ist üblicherweise crayspezifisch jeweils das stärkste im Jahr. Zudem ist das Börsenumfeld sehr nervös, um es anständig auszudrücken.

Cray Announces Selected Preliminary 2016 Financial ResultsMon January 9, 2017 5:00 PM|GlobeNewswire|About: CRAYGlobeNewswire
SEATTLE, Jan. 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (Nasdaq:CRAY) today announced selected preliminary 2016 financial results. The 2016 anticipated results presented in this release are based on preliminary financial data and are subject to change until the year-end financial reporting process is complete.
Based on preliminary results, total revenue for 2016 is expected to be about $630 million, in the range of the previously provided guidance, and the Company expects to be profitable on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for 2016.
As of December 31, 2016, cash and investments are expected to total about $225 million.
For 2017, while a wide range of results remains possible, the Company currently believes it will be difficult to grow over 2016.
“While 2016 was challenging, we finished the year on a high-note, delivering the largest revenue quarter in our history,” said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. “We achieved all of the large system acceptances and most of the smaller ones we were working toward in the quarter, installing high-end supercomputers and analytics solutions at numerous sites around the world. We are not yet able to provide detailed 2017 guidance as we continue to lack visibility for the year, but we remain confident in our competitive position and our ability to drive long-term growth.”
Weiss noch nicht, vielleicht finden wir noch einen Outlook für 2017?
Kommt gut rüber, Aktie springt an:
Story Stocks®Last Update: 09-Feb-17 10:44 ETCray Spikes 14.7% After Beating Estimates (CRAY)
Cray (CRAY 20.53, +2.63) has spiked 14.7% in the early going, as better than expected earnings overshadow cautious guidance for the first quarter.
The manufacturer of supercomputers reported above-consensus earnings of $1.38 per share on a 29.6% year-over-year increase in revenue to $346.6 million, which was roughly in line with expectations.
Fourth quarter gross margin declined to 34.8% from 37.0% one year ago. However, for the full year, gross margin increased to 35.0% from 32.0% in 2015.
Cray noted that it generated record revenue during the fourth quarter even though 2016 on the whole turned out to be weaker than the company had expected.
Cray did not make any comments about its competition, but with the rise of quantum computing, investors should be aware that customers now have another option when seeking cutting edge technology. Alphabet's Google and Lockheed Martin are among companies that own quantum computers built by D-Wave. However, since the new technology is rooted in quantum physics, considerable expertise in the field is needed.
Looking ahead, Cray expects that first quarter revenue will be about $55 million, which is well below current market expectations. The company blamed limited visibility into 2017 for its cautious outlook, saying it will be difficult to grow revenue compared to 2016. Gross margin is expected between 30.0% and 35.0%.
Thanks to today's spike, shares of Cray are back to levels from the start of 2017.
Und noch dies:
Ich sehe, dass hier heute, nachbörslich noch Q1-Zahlen gezeigt werden. Mal sehen, wie das kommt.
