NETGEAR® Reports Second Quarter 2021 Results

Second Quarter Revenue of $309 Million – 10.3% Growth Year over Year

Strong SMB Growth Year over Year Fueled by Reopening

Continued Market Share Gains in U.S. Retail WiFi Market

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NETGEAR, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR), a global networking company that delivers innovative networking and Internet connected products to consumers and businesses, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 27, 2021.

  • Second quarter 2021 net revenue of $308.8 million, an increase of 10.3% from the comparable prior year quarter.
  • Second quarter 2021 GAAP operating income of $21.5 million, or 7.0% of net revenue, as compared to $8.9 million, or 3.2% of net revenue, in the comparable prior year quarter.
    • Second quarter 2021 non-GAAP operating income of $26.5 million, or 8.6% of net revenue, as compared to $21.0 million, or 7.5% of net revenue, in the comparable prior year quarter.
  • Second quarter 2021 GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.57, as compared to $0.20 in the comparable prior year quarter.
    • Second quarter 2021 non-GAAP net income per diluted share of $0.66, as compared to $0.54 in the comparable prior year quarter.

The accompanying schedules provide a reconciliation of financial measures computed on a GAAP basis to financial measures computed on a non-GAAP basis.

Patrick Lo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of NETGEAR, commented, “Second quarter revenue came in at $308.8 million, representing 10.3% topline growth year over year. Worldwide supply chain constraints, however, such as component shortages, increased freight costs and transit times, and factory closures due to COVID-19, led to a perfect storm of factors that held back our revenue number and saw us fall short of our operating margin goals. As we continue to navigate through this rapidly changing environment, our long-term thesis that premium WiFi will drive the growth of the consumer networking market and our service subscriber base remains intact. With vaccination rates rising and businesses reopening, work from anywhere and hybrid work models are here to stay and we anticipate that the U.S. consumer networking market will grow 20% above pre-pandemic levels in the second half of this year. Meanwhile, demand for our SMB products rebounded strongly in the second quarter as businesses reopened post-COVID. Despite supply constraints, SMB net revenue grew approximately 58% year over year.”

Mr. Lo continued, “We continue to regain market share in the U.S. consumer WiFi market, adding three points to end the quarter at 46%. In addition, we added 33,000 subscribers in the quarter and remain confident in our ability to achieve our goal of 650,000 subscribers by the end of the year. We also launched our smart parental controls service on select Nighthawk WiFi routers in Q2, with plans to roll it out across our WiFi 6 Orbi line in the third quarter. These are important milestones as we build our recurring subscription services business. Finally, I’m delighted to welcome David Henry to the NETGEAR Board of Directors and would like to congratulate him on his promotion to President and General Manager of Connected Home Products and Services.”

Bryan Murray, Chief Financial Officer of NETGEAR, added, “During the second quarter of 2021, we repurchased approximately 654,000 shares of common stock for $25.0 million. With a meaningful portion of our targeted inventory position established, we plan to continue to opportunistically repurchase shares in future quarters.”

Business Outlook

Mr. Murray continued, “With hindsight, the first half of 2021 saw the U.S. consumer networking market grow 40% over the same period in 2019. While a very strong showing, this turned out to be 10% below our expectations. As such, we plan to proactively work with our channel partners to optimize their inventory levels in the third quarter. Looking ahead to the second half of 2021, we expect the market growth to moderate further to approximately 20% above second half 2019 levels. We also expect SMB to continue to be supply-bound, and thus expect our third quarter net revenue to be in the range of $285 million to $300 million. With reduced leverage from our topline, our GAAP operating margin for the third quarter is expected to be in the range of 2.1% to 3.1%, and non-GAAP operating margin is expected to be in the range of 5.0% to 6.0%. Our GAAP tax rate is expected to be approximately 27.5%, and our non-GAAP tax rate is expected to be 24.5% for the third quarter of 2021. While we are confident in our ability to provide guidance at this time, we do so with the caveat that, while conditions are improving, considerable uncertainty remains in the market due to the COVID-19 pandemic and, should unforeseen events occur, in particular challenges related to closure of our manufacturing partners operations or transportation delays into any of our regional distribution centers, our actual results could differ from the foregoing guidance.”

New material income and expense items such as these could have a significant effect on our guidance and future GAAP results.

Non-GAAP Financial Information:

To supplement our unaudited selected financial data presented on a basis consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”), we disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain charges, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP sales and marketing, non-GAAP general and administrative, non-GAAP other operating expenses, net, non-GAAP total operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP other income (expense), net, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share. These supplemental measures exclude adjustments for amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of contingent consideration, restructuring and other charges, litigation reserves, net, gain/loss on investments, net, and adjust for effects related to non-GAAP tax adjustments. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative for GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. We believe that these non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the most directly comparable GAAP measures. We compensate for the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures by relying upon GAAP results to gain a complete picture of our performance.

In calculating non-GAAP financial measures, we exclude certain items to facilitate a review of the comparability of our operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not, in our view, related to our ongoing operational performance. We use non-GAAP measures to evaluate the operating performance of our business, for comparison with forecasts and strategic plans, and for benchmarking performance externally against competitors. In addition, management’s incentive compensation is determined using certain non-GAAP measures. Since we find these measures to be useful, we believe that investors benefit from seeing results “through the eyes” of management in addition to seeing GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with our GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make more meaningful period-to-period comparisons of our on-going operating results;
  • the ability to better identify trends in our underlying business and perform related trend analyses;
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures our underlying business; and
  • an easier way to compare our operating results against analyst financial models and operating results of competitors that supplement their GAAP results with non-GAAP financial measures.

The following are explanations of the adjustments that we incorporate into non-GAAP measures, as well as the reasons for excluding them in the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures:

Amortization of intangibles consists primarily of non-cash charges that can be impacted by, among other things, the timing and magnitude of acquisitions. We consider our operating results without these charges when evaluating our ongoing performance and forecasting our earnings trends, and therefore exclude such charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures. We believe that the assessment of our operations excluding these costs is relevant to our assessment of internal operations and comparisons to the performance of our competitors.

Stock-based compensation expense consists of non-cash charges for the estimated fair value of stock options, restricted stock units, performance shares and shares under the employee stock purchase plan granted to employees. We believe that the exclusion of these charges provides for more accurate comparisons of our operating results to peer companies due to the varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of award types. In addition, we believe it is useful to investors to understand the specific impact stock-based compensation expense has on our operating results.

Other items consist of certain items that are the result of either unique or unplanned events, including, when applicable: change in fair value of contingent consideration, restructuring and other charges, litigation reserves, net, and gain/loss on investments, net. It is difficult to predict the occurrence or estimate the amount or timing of these items in advance. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financial statements, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods. The amounts result from events that often arise from unforeseen circumstances, which often occur outside of the ordinary course of continuing operations. Therefore, the amounts do not accurately reflect the underlying performance of our continuing business operations for the period in which they are incurred.

Non-GAAP tax adjustments consist of adjustments that we incorporate into non-GAAP measures in order to provide a more meaningful measure on non-GAAP net income. We also believe providing financial information with and without the income tax effects relating to our non-GAAP financial measures provides our management and users of the financial statements with better clarity regarding the on-going performance of our business.
