Financial Results

Net revenues for the Company's second quarter of fiscal 2010 were $18.4 million, compared with $31.7 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Gross margins, computed on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, were 44% for the second quarter of fiscal 2010, compared with 42% for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Non-GAAP gross margins for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 were 50%, compared with 44% for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

The Company’s GAAP loss from continuing operations, net of taxes, for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $(4.1) million, or $(0.03) per share, compared with GAAP income from continuing operations, net of taxes, of $3.3 million, or $0.02 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $(3.8) million, or $(0.03) per share, compared with GAAP net income of $3.3 million, or $0.02 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

Non-GAAP loss from continuing operations, net of taxes, for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $(1.8) million, or $(0.01) per share, compared with non-GAAP income from continuing operations, net of taxes, of $4.0 million, or $0.03 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Non-GAAP net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $(1.8) million, or $(0.01) per share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $4.0 million, or $0.03 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

“Although customer engagements with our new products continue to grow, our new product revenue is not enough to offset the decline in revenues from our legacy products,” said S. “Sundi” Sundaresh, President and Chief Executive Officer of Adaptec. “Our recent product introductions, such as our MaxIQ Cache Performance Solution that was successfully launched in September as part of our Data Conditioning Platform, allow us to deliver new server, storage and application optimization technologies with the ability to reduce financial costs and address green initiatives for the next generation enterprise and cloud data centers. We continue to focus on attracting new customers for our new products while maintaining tight controls on our operating expense levels.”

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of fiscal 2010, net revenues are projected to be between $15 million and $17 million. GAAP net loss per share is projected to be in the range of $(0.06) and $(0.04). Non-GAAP net loss per share is projected to be in a range of $(0.04) and $(0.02). Actual results may vary depending on a number of factors including challenging economic conditions in IT spending for servers and timing of the Company’s revenue transitions.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

The non-GAAP results for all periods presented differ from results measured under GAAP as they exclude stock-based compensation expense, expense associated with the management liquidation pool established in connection with the Aristos Logic Corporation transaction, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, restructuring costs, gain on extinguishment of debt, tax differences due to GAAP versus non-GAAP measurements and certain items related to discontinued operations.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company’s earnings release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain expenses, gains and losses. The Company believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance and its prospects for the future. Specifically, the Company believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring the Company’s performance, and the Company believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes. The Company also believes, based on feedback provided to the Company during its earnings calls’ Q&A sessions and discussions with the investment community, that the non-GAAP financial measures it provides enhance the ability of the investment community to review the Company’s results and projections.

The non-GAAP financial information is presented using consistent methodology from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year. 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. The non-GAAP financial measures presented by the Company may be different than the non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures.

The Company excludes the following expenses, gains and losses from its non-GAAP financial measures, when applicable:

Stock-based compensation expense: Stock-based compensation expense is associated with stock awards, such as stock options, restricted stock awards and restricted stock units that are granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans. The Company excludes stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP financial measures because it is a non-cash measurement that does not reflect the Company’s ongoing business; the Company believes that the provision of non-GAAP information that excludes stock-based compensation improves the ability of investors to compare its period-over-period operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense.

Management liquidation pool: The management liquidation pool of $5.6 million was included as part of the total consideration to acquire Aristos Logic Corporation. Under the merger agreement, the Company paid $3.2 million upon closing the merger transaction. The remaining $2.4 million was paid within twelve months from the acquisition date, to certain employees of the acquired company, contingent upon their continued employment with the Company. The Company excluded expenses associated with the management liquidation pool as these payments were instituted as a component of the acquisition process and did not reflect the Company's ongoing business.

Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets: Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets primarily relate to core and existing technologies, customer relationships and backlog that were acquired from Aristos Logic Corporation. The Company excludes the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because it does not reflect the Company’s ongoing business. In addition, in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally recognizes expenses for internally-developed intangible assets as they are incurred, notwithstanding the potential future benefit such assets may provide. Unlike internally-developed intangible assets, however, and also in accordance with GAAP, the Company generally capitalizes the cost of acquired intangible assets and recognizes that cost as an expense over the useful lives of the assets acquired (other than goodwill, which is not amortized, as required under GAAP). As a result of their GAAP treatment, there is an inherent lack of comparability between the financial performance of internally-developed intangible assets and acquired intangible assets. Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful to provide, as a supplement to its GAAP operating results, a non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the amortization of acquired intangible assets in order to enhance the period-over-period comparison of its operating results, as there is significant variability and unpredictability across companies with respect to this expense. The amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets for core and existing technologies and backlog are being reflected as cost of revenues, while the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets for customer relationships is being reflected as part of operating expenses.

Restructuring charges (credits): Restructuring charges (credits) primarily relate to activities engaged in by the Company’s management to implement extensive company-wide expense-control programs. Restructuring charges (credits) are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because they are not considered to be part of core operating activities and the occurrence of such costs is infrequent. Although the Company has engaged in various restructuring activities over the past several years, each has been a discrete, individual event based on a unique set of business objectives. The Company does not engage in restructuring activities in the ordinary course of business. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude restructuring charges (credits) from its non-GAAP financial measures, as it enhances the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results.

Gain on extinguishment of debt: The gain on extinguishment of debt relates to repurchases of the Company’s 3/4% convertible notes in the open market. The gain on extinguishment of debt is excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because the occurrence of such costs is infrequent, which would affect the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results, and because the Company does not believe that these activities are reflective of gains customarily incurred in the management of its cash resources.

Income taxes: Income taxes relates to incremental income taxes associated with certain non-GAAP items and tax provisions and refunds from certain discrete tax events.

Discontinued operations: Discontinued operations relates to the sale of the Snap Server NAS business. Certain items from discontinued operations are excluded from non-GAAP financial measures, which include the gain on disposal of discontinued operations, net of taxes, and certain expenses discussed above related to stock-based compensation and income taxes. The gain on disposal of discontinued operations is excluded from non-GAAP financial measures because the occurrence of such costs is infrequent, which would affect the ability of investors to compare the Company’s period-over-period operating results, and because the Company does not believe that this activity is reflective of gains and losses customarily incurred in the management of its cash resources.
