SEATTLE, Feb. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global supercomputer leader Cray Inc. (Nasdaq:CRAY) today announced financial results for the year and fourth quarter ended December 31, 2017.

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.

For 2017, Cray reported total revenue of $392.5 million, which compares with $629.8 million in 2016. Net loss for 2017 was $133.8 million, or $3.33 per diluted share, compared to net income of $10.6 million, or $0.26 per diluted share in 2016.  Non-GAAP net loss, which adjusts for selected unusual and non-cash items, was $40.5 million, or $1.01 per diluted share for 2017, compared to non-GAAP net income of $19.9 million, or $0.49 per diluted share in 2016.

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $166.6 million, compared to $346.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2016.  Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $97.5 million, or $2.42 per diluted share, compared to net income of $51.8 million, or $1.27 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2016.  Non-GAAP net income was $9.2 million, or $0.22 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2017, compared to non-GAAP net income of $56.3 million, or $1.38 per diluted share for the same period in 2016.

The Company’s GAAP Net Loss for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2017 was significantly impacted by both the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and by its decision to record a valuation allowance against all of its U.S. deferred tax assets.  The combined GAAP impact totaled $103 million.  These items have been excluded for non-GAAP purposes.

For 2017, overall gross profit margin on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis was 33% and 34%, respectively, compared to 35% on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis for 2016.

Operating expenses for 2017 were $196.4 million, compared to $211.1 million in 2016.  Non-GAAP operating expenses for 2017 were $176.5 million, compared to $199.7 million in 2016.  GAAP operating expenses in 2017 included $8.6 million in restructuring charges associated with our recent workforce reduction.

As of December 31, 2017, cash, investments and restricted cash totaled $147 million.  Working capital at the end of the fourth quarter was $354 million, compared to $373 million at December 31, 2016.

“Despite difficult conditions in our core market we finished 2017 strong, highlighted by several large acceptances at multiple sites around the world, including completing the installation of what is now the largest supercomputing complex in India at the Ministry of Earth Sciences,” said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray.  “As we shift to 2018, we’re seeing signs of a rebound at the high-end of supercomputing as well as considerable growth opportunities in the coming years.  Supercomputing continues to expand in importance to both government and commercial customers, driving growth and competitiveness across many different disciplines and industries.  As the leader at the high-end of the market, we’re poised to play a key role in this growth and I’m excited about where we’re headed.”

Outlook
For 2018, while a wide range of results remains possible, Cray continues to expect revenue to grow in the range of 10-15% over 2017.  Revenue is expected to be about $50 million for the first quarter of 2018.  For 2018, GAAP and non-GAAP gross margins are expected to be in the low- to mid-30% range.  Non-GAAP operating expenses for 2018 are expected to be in the range of $190 million.  For 2018, non-GAAP adjustments are expected to total about $14 million, driven primarily by share-based compensation.  For the year, GAAP operating expenses are anticipated to be about $12 million higher than non-GAAP operating expenses, and GAAP gross profit is expected to be about $2 million lower than non-GAAP gross profit.

Based on this outlook, Cray’s effective GAAP and non-GAAP tax rates for 2018 are both expected to be in the low-single digit range, on a percentage basis.

Actual results for any future periods are subject to large fluctuations given the nature of Cray’s business.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains “non-GAAP financial measures” under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  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 share-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.

(9) Cray recorded a GAAP net loss for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and non-GAAP net income for the same period. As such, the diluted weighted average shares number on the Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Net Income (Loss) differs from the amount on Cray’s Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations by the weighted average number of potential common shares outstanding, including the additional dilution related to conversion of stock options, unvested restricted stock and unvested restricted stock units as computed under the treasury stock method
