FREMONT, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In conjunction with its planned presentation today at the 15th Annual Needham Growth Conference in New York, SGI (Nasdaq:SGI) today reported preliminary results for its fiscal second quarter ended Dec. 28, 2012. The company also announced that its board of directors has authorized a $15 million stock repurchase plan.
The following results are preliminary and are subject to change pending the expected full release of fiscal second quarter results on Jan. 30, 2013.
"We are pleased to have achieved non-GAAP profitability and another strong cash performance in the second quarter, which is a reflection of our continuing improvements in deal quality, costs, and working capital management," said Jorge Titinger, president and chief executive officer. "We are making good progress on our longer-term strategic vision to leverage SGI's strong technology in the areas of Big Data, Storage, and Scale-Up Computing. At the same time, we are mindful of the challenging near-term environment for IT spending among both government and commercial customers, particularly outside the U.S. We are therefore staying focused on previously discussed operational initiatives around cost reduction and supply chain management to help maintain our positive momentum."
Stock Repurchase Plan
SGI's board of directors has approved a plan to repurchase SGI common stock with a market value of up to $15 million. The company believes that repurchases of its shares represent an effective use of available cash and future cash flows. Common stock may be repurchased in the open market or through negotiated transactions, including Rule 10b5-1 trading plans that would enable the company to repurchase its shares during periods outside of its normal trading windows. The timing of purchases and the exact number of shares to be purchased will depend on market conditions. The repurchase program expires December 31, 2014. Purchases will cease if the authorized funds are spent or the program is discontinued. Under the plan SGI is not obligated to acquire any particular amount of stock, and the program may be suspended or terminated at any time at the company's discretion.
Management's presentation at the Needham Growth Conference at 2:10 PM Eastern Time today is being webcast and will be available on the Investor Relations section of the company's website at www.sgi.com.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The non-GAAP financial measures discussed in the text of this press release and accompanying non-GAAP supplemental information are financial measures used by SGI's management to evaluate the company's operating performance and to conduct its business operations. In evaluating SGI's performance, management uses one or more of the following measures that are not determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"): non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, and non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP basic and diluted net income (loss) per share. These measures are adjusted as described in the reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP numbers at the end of this release, but these adjustments should not be construed as an inference that all of these adjustments or costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.
In addition, management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate its review of the comparability of SGI's core operating performance on a period to period basis as well as to better understand the fundamental economics of a specific period's operational and financial performance. Management uses this view of SGI's operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocations of resources.
Management also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating SGI's financial and operational performance in the same way that management evaluates the company's financial performance. However, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool, as they exclude the financial impact of transactions necessary or advisable for the conduct of SGI's business, such as the granting of equity compensation awards and are not intended to be an alternative to financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. Hence, to compensate for these limitations, management does not review these non-GAAP financial metrics in isolation from its GAAP results, nor should investors. Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, a detailed reconciliation between SGI's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided at the end of this press release. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information as well as the GAAP financial results that are disclosed in SGI's SEC filings.
