nvidia (nasdaq: nvda) today announced select preliminary financial results for the second quarter ended July 31, 2022.
Second-quarter revenue is expected to be approximately $6.7 billion, down 19% sequentially and up 3% from the prior year, primarily reflecting weaker-than-expected gaming revenue. gaming revenue was $2.04 billion, down 44% sequentially and down 33% from the prior year. Data center revenue was $3.81 billion, up 1% sequentially and up 61% from the prior year.
The shortfall relative to the May revenue forecast of $8.1 billion was primarily attributed to lower gaming product sales reflecting reduced channel partner sales likely due to macroeconomic headwinds. In addition to reducing sales, the company implemented pricing programs with channel partners to reflect challenging market conditions that are expected to persist into the third quarter.
Data center revenue, while a record, was somewhat below company expectations as it was affected by supply chain disruptions.
Second quarter results are expected to include approximately $1.32 billion in charges, primarily for inventory and related reserves, based on revised expectations of future demand.
“Our projections for direct sales of gaming products decreased significantly as the quarter progressed,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “As we expect macroeconomic conditions affecting direct sales to continue, we have taken steps with our gaming partners to adjust channel pricing and inventory. “nvidia has great products and a position to drive large and growing markets. As we meet these challenges, we remain focused on the once-in-a-generation opportunity to reinvent computing for the age of AI,” he said.
“The significant charges incurred in the quarter reflect prior long-term purchase commitments we made during a time of severe component shortages and our current expectation of ongoing macroeconomic uncertainty,” said Colette Kress, EVP and CFO of NVIDIA. .
“We believe our long-term gross margin profile is intact. we have slowed operating expense growth, balancing investments for long-term growth while managing short-term profitability. we plan to continue share buybacks as we anticipate strong cash generation and future growth,” he said.
