Factors to Note

Marvell’s third-quarter performance is likely to have benefited from solid demand for its networking products, primarily across the data-center and 5G infrastructure end markets.

During its second-quarter conference call, Marvell stated that it anticipates strong sequential revenue growth driven by the substantial contribution from cloud data-center end market, accelerated 5G adoptions in the United States and other regions, and broad growth across multiple products.

Marvell expects sequential revenue growth from the carrier end market to be driven by strong growth from wireless, partially offset by a decline from wired. It projects 20% year-over-year growth from this end market.

Additionally, 5G and Cloud product ramp-ups, and revenue contributions from the recently-acquired Inphi Corporation business might have favored Marvell’s networking segment performance during the quarter under review. The consensus mark for networking revenues is pegged at $759 million, suggesting a jump of approximately 71% year over year.

Record bookings and ramp-up of multiple Ethernet design wins in upcoming vehicles are anticipated to have driven revenue growth significantly in the fiscal third quarter. The automotive and industrial businesses are likely to have put up an impressive show in the quarter under review.

Marvell estimates its non-GAAP gross margin to be 64-65% in the fiscal third quarter. Its non-GAAP operating expenses are estimated between $365 and $370.

The company’s Storage business is expected to display year-over-year growth in the mid-teen range for the fiscal third quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for storage business revenues is pegged at $373 million, indicating an improvement from the year-ago quarter’s $276 million.

During its last quarterly conference call, Marvell noted that beginning from the third quarter it will discontinue reporting revenues on product group basis. Instead, the company will categorize revenues on an end-market basis enabling better transparency of key business growth drivers.

However, certain ongoing supply-chain challenges are anticipated to have acted as headwinds, which in turn might have curbed Marvell’s ability to fully meet the increase in demand for some of its networking offerings.
