Ambarella, Inc. Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Results

February 28, 2022 —Santa Clara, Calif. – Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), an AI vision silicon company, today announced fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2022 financial results for the period ending January 31, 2022.

 

   

Revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $90.2 million, up 45% from $62.1 million in the same period in fiscal 2021. For the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022, revenue was $331.9 million, up 49% from $223.0 million for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

 

   

Gross margin under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was 63.5%, compared with 60.8% for the same period in fiscal 2021. For the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022, GAAP gross margin was 62.7%, compared with 60.8% for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

 

   

GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $9.2 million, or loss per diluted ordinary share of $0.25, compared with a GAAP net loss of $12.5 million, or loss per diluted ordinary share of $0.35, for the same period in fiscal 2021. GAAP net loss for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022 was $26.4 million, or loss per diluted ordinary share of $0.72. This compares with GAAP net loss of $59.8 million, or loss per diluted ordinary share of $1.72, for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

Financial results on a non-GAAP basis for the fourth quarter and full year fiscal 2022 are as follows:

 

   

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was 64.8%, compared with 61.4% for the same period in fiscal 2021. For the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022, non-GAAP gross margin was 63.4%, compared with 61.4% for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

 

   

Non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $17.9 million, or earnings per diluted ordinary share of $0.45. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $5.1 million, or earnings per diluted ordinary share of $0.14, for the same period in fiscal 2021. Non-GAAP net income for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2022 was $62.2 million, or earnings per diluted ordinary share of $1.61. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $11.9 million, or earnings per diluted ordinary share of $0.33, for the fiscal year ending January 31, 2021.

Based on information available as of today, Ambarella is offering the following guidance for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, ending April 30, 2022:

 

   

Revenue is expected to be between $88.5 million and $91.5 million

 

   

Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis is expected to be between 63.0% and 64.0%

 

   

Non-GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $41.0 million and $43.0 million


Ambarella reports gross margin, net income (loss) and earnings (losses) per share in accordance with GAAP and, additionally, on a non-GAAP basis. Non-GAAP financial information excludes the impact of stock-based compensation and acquisition-related costs adjusted for the associated tax impact, which includes the effect of any benefits or shortfalls recognized. A reconciliation of the GAAP to non-GAAP gross margin, net income (loss) and earnings (losses) per share for the periods presented, as well as a description of the items excluded from the non-GAAP calculations, is included in the financial statements portion of this press release.

Total cash on hand at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 was $171.0 million, compared with cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities of $440.7 million at the end of the same quarter a year ago. Ambarella fully liquidated its debt security investments by the end of the third quarter of fiscal 2022 to finance the acquisition of Oculii Corp.

“Fiscal 2022 was an inflection year with record revenue and numerous milestones achieved. Computer vision revenue tripled and exceeded 25% of total revenue, driving our blended average selling price higher and fueling expansion of non-GAAP operating margin from 4% in fiscal 2021 to 19% in fiscal 2022. We acquired HD radar leader Oculii, and in fiscal 2023 our first 5nm SoC, CV5, is expected to generate revenue and CV3, our second 5nm SoC targeting the automotive domain controller market, is expected to sample,” said Fermi Wang, President and CEO. “We continue to face headwinds, including geopolitical, public health, and persistent supply chain challenges. Nevertheless, we believe we are now decisively established in front of the positive AIoT secular trends and our commitment and execution are expected to drive CV to be 45% of total revenue in fiscal 2023.”

Our actual results could differ materially from those predicted or implied and reported results should not be considered as an indication of our future performance.

The risks and uncertainties referred to above include, but are not limited to, risks associated with revenue being generated from customers or design wins, neither of which is assured; the commercial success of our customers’ products; risks associated with the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the global economy or any of our operations or the operations of our customers; risks associated with the semiconductor supply chain, including the ability of our suppliers to meet our demand; our growth strategy; global economic and political conditions, including possible trade tariffs, trade restrictions and export controls that impact our products, our customers or our customers’ products; our ability to anticipate future market demands and future needs of our customers; our ability to introduce new and enhanced solutions; our ability to develop, and to generate revenue from, new advanced technologies, such as computer vision functionality; our ability to retain and expand customer relationships and to achieve design wins; the expansion of our current markets and our ability to successfully enter new markets, such as the OEM automotive and robotics markets; anticipated trends and challenges, including competition, in the markets in which we operate; our ability to effectively manage growth; our ability to retain key employees; and the potential for intellectual property disputes or other litigation.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company has provided in this release non-GAAP financial information, including non-GAAP gross margin, net income, and earnings per share, as a supplement to the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing the company’s financial results to assess operational performance and liquidity. The company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. Further, the company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics that the company uses in making operating decisions and because the company believes that investors and analysts use them to help assess the health of its business and for comparison to other companies. Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only for understanding the company’s operating results. The non-GAAP information should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

With respect to its financial results for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, the company has provided below reconciliations of its non-GAAP financial measures to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. With respect to the company’s expectations for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, a reconciliation of non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expenses guidance to the closest corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.
