NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today announ짯ced sel짯ec짯ted preli짯mi짯na짯ry finan짯cial results for the second quar짯ter ended July 31, 2022.

Second quar짯ter reve짯nue is expec짯ted to be appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $6.70 bil짯li짯on, down 19% sequen짯ti짯al짯ly and up 3% from the pri짯or year, pri짯ma짯ri짯ly reflec짯ting wea짯k짯er than fore짯cas짯ted Gam짯ing reve짯nue. Gam짯ing reve짯nue was $2.04 bil짯li짯on, down 44% sequen짯ti짯al짯ly and down 33% from the pri짯or year. Data Cen짯ter reve짯nue was $3.81 bil짯li짯on, up 1% sequen짯ti짯al짯ly and up 61% from the pri짯or year.

The short짯fall rela짯ti짯ve to the May reve짯nue out짯look of $8.10 bil짯li짯on was pri짯ma짯ri짯ly attri짯bu짯ta짯ble to lower sell-in of Gam짯ing pro짯ducts reflec짯ting a reduc짯tion in chan짯nel part짯ner sales likely due to macroe짯co짯no짯mic head짯winds. In addi짯ti짯on to redu짯cing sell-in, the com짯pa짯ny imple짯men짯ted pri짯cing pro짯grams with chan짯nel part짯ners to reflect chal짯len짯ging mar짯ket con짯di짯ti짯ons that are expec짯ted to per짯sist into the third quarter.

Data Cen짯ter reve짯nue, though a record, was some짯what short of the company셲 expec짯ta짯ti짯ons, as it was impac짯ted by sup짯p짯ly chain disruptions.

Second quar짯ter results are expec짯ted to include appro짯xi짯m짯ate짯ly $1.32 bil짯li짯on of char짯ges, pri짯ma짯ri짯ly for inven짯to짯ry and rela짯ted reser짯ves, based on revi짯sed expec짯ta짯ti짯ons of future demand.

Our gam짯ing pro짯duct sell-through pro짯jec짯tions decli짯ned signi짯fi짯cant짯ly as the quar짯ter pro짯gres짯sed, said Jen짯sen Huang, foun짯der and CEO of NVIDIA. 쏛s we expect the macroe짯co짯no짯mic con짯di짯ti짯ons affec짯ting sell-through to con짯ti짯nue, we took actions with our Gam짯ing part짯ners to adjust chan짯nel pri짯ces and inventory.

NVIDIA has excel짯lent pro짯ducts and posi짯ti짯on dri짯ving lar짯ge and gro짯wing mar짯kets. As we navi짯ga짯te the짯se chal짯lenges, we remain focu짯sed on the once-in-a-gene짯ra짯ti짯on oppor짯tu짯ni짯ty to reinvent com짯pu짯ting for the era of AI, he said.

The signi짯fi짯cant char짯ges incur짯red in the quar짯ter reflect pre짯vious long-term purcha짯se com짯mit짯ments we made during a time of seve짯re com짯po짯nent shorta짯ges and our cur짯rent expec짯ta짯ti짯on of ongo짯ing macroe짯co짯no짯mic uncer짯tain짯ty, said Colet짯te Kress, EVP and CFO of NVIDIA.

We belie짯ve our long-term gross mar짯gin pro짯fi짯le is int짯act. We have slo짯wed ope짯ra짯ting expen짯se growth, balan짯cing invest짯ments for long-term growth while mana짯ging near-term pro짯fi짯ta짯bi짯li짯ty. We plan to con짯ti짯nue stock buy짯backs as we fore짯see strong cash gene짯ra짯ti짯on and future growth, she said.
