Dell Technologies Reports Fiscal Year 2019 Second Quarter
Financial Results



ROUND ROCK, Texas - Sept. 6, 2018

News summary

GAAP revenue up 18 percent to $22.9 billion
Double-digit growth across all reportable segments—Infrastructure Solutions Group, Client Solutions Group and VMware
Strong operating cash flow and continued debt pay down
Full-year guidance increased based on strong first half results

Full story
Dell Technologies (NYSE: DVMT) announces its fiscal 2019 second quarter results. For the second quarter, revenue was $22.9 billion, up 18 percent, and non-GAAP revenue was $23.1 billion, up 16 percent from the prior period. During the quarter, the company generated a GAAP operating loss of $13 million1, with a non-GAAP operating income of $2.1 billion, up 13 percent. Cash flow from operations was $2.6 billion, and excluding the impact of financing receivables, cash flow from operations would have been $3.1 billion2.

“We are in the early stages of a global, technology-led investment cycle in which every company is becoming a technology company,” said Michael Dell, chairman and CEO, Dell Technologies. “As our results indicate, Dell Technologies is perfectly positioned to grow, gain share, drive innovation and be our customers’ best, most trusted partner on the journey to their digital future.”

“Dell Technologies delivered another strong quarter, with double-digit revenue growth across all three of our reportable segments and strong cash flow generation for the first half of the year,” said Tom Sweet, chief financial officer, Dell Technologies. “Looking toward the second half of fiscal 2019, we’ll balance this growth by executing across strategic areas of the business, including driving additional share gains, continuing to generate strong cash flow and addressing our customers’ needs with our full range of capabilities.

“Given our momentum in the first half of the fiscal year, we increased the revenue, operating income and net income guidance ranges we provided on July 2, in conjunction with the Class V exchange transaction announcement.”

The company ended the second quarter with a cash and investments balance of $21.5 billion. In the quarter, Dell Technologies paid down approximately $2.6 billion of core debt3, and subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company prepaid $600 million of additional debt. Over the past two years, Dell Technologies has paid down approximately $13.7 billion in gross debt, excluding Dell Financial Services related and subsidiary debt.

Information about Dell Technologies’ use of non-GAAP financial information is provided under “Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below. All comparisons in this press release are year over year unless otherwise noted.

“The second quarter completes a strong first half of fiscal 2019, where we continued to demonstrate our commitment to innovation across our entire portfolio—including new solutions that give our customers the ability to drive better business outcomes through the power of their data,” said Jeff Clarke, vice chairman, Products & Operations. “We are able to provide our customers with a differentiated experience, given Dell Technologies’ unique family of businesses. We continue to collaborate on new solutions and enhanced integrations to provide a unified, seamless experience across PC and mobile devices, software-defined data centers, hyper-converged infrastructures and multi-cloud platforms.”

Operating segments summary

Infrastructure Solutions Group revenue for the second quarter was a record $9.2 billion, a 24 percent increase. This was driven by revenue of $4.2 billion in storage, a 13 percent increase, and revenue of $5.1 billion in servers and networking, a 34 percent increase. Operating income for the second quarter was $1.0 billion, or 11 percent of revenue and a 230 basis-point increase from the previous year, driven primarily by improved storage performance and operating expense leverage.

Key second quarter highlights:
Worldwide leader for x86 servers in calendar second quarter, both in units and revenue4 
Triple-digit growth for VxRail and VxRack, including $1 billion of cumulative revenue for VxRail since launching
Enhancements to the Storage and Data Protection portfolio, including the new Integrated Data Protection Appliance DP4400 for the cloud
Storage share gain for the second consecutive quarter expected when IDC reports results later today

“IDC has forecasted second quarter server and external storage systems spending will grow 19.6 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively, and we fully expect Dell Technologies’ Infrastructure Solutions Group will gain share in both segments when IDC releases second quarter share data,” said Matt Eastwood, senior vice president of IDC’s enterprise, datacenter, cloud infrastructure and developer research groups.






Client Solutions Group revenue for the second quarter was $11.1 billion, up 13 percent, with double-digit growth across both Commercial and Consumer. Commercial revenue grew 13 percent to $8.1 billion and Consumer revenue was up 14 percent to $3.0 billion. Operating income for the second quarter was $425 million, a 20 percent decrease and 3.8 percent of revenue.

Key second quarter highlights:
Shipped a record number of client units in the second fiscal quarter, while also expanding average selling prices
Outperformed the PC industry and hit highest share position to date for total worldwide units and for commercial units at 18.2 percent and 22.8 percent, respectively5 
No. 1 share position worldwide for displays, gaining unit share year-over-year for the 20th consecutive quarter6 
Maintained position as No. 1 provider of workstations worldwide7; launched world’s most powerful 1-unit rack workstation

VMware revenue for the second quarter was $2.2 billion, up 11 percent, with operating income of $736 million and 33.5 percent of revenue. The company continues to see revenue synergies through the collaboration across the Dell Technologies family of businesses. The second quarter showed continued strong demand for Dell Technologies’ market-leading VxRail and VxRack hyperconverged offerings, and the company completed one of the largest VxRail hyperconverged infrastructure deals in its history. Additionally, VMworld last week showcased several announcements illustrating leveraged innovation across Dell Technologies. These new solutions and enhanced integrations provide customers with a unified, seamless experience across PC and mobile devices, software-defined data centers, hyper-converged infrastructures and multi-cloud platforms.

Second quarter revenue from other businesses, including Pivotal, Secureworks, RSA Security, Virtustream and Boomi was $574 million, up 6 percent.

Company outlook

For fiscal 2019, the company is adjusting upward the guidance ranges provided on July 2, given the momentum it has seen year-to-date. The company now expects non-GAAP revenue to be between $90.5 billion and $92.0 billion for the full fiscal year, non-GAAP operating income to be between $8.4 billion and $8.8 billion, and non-GAAP net income to be between $4.9 billion and $5.3 billion.

Due to the EMC transaction, significant non-cash bridging items will remain between GAAP and non-GAAP results for the next few years.
2
Dell Technologies initially funds DFS financing receivables with cash on hand, thereby impacting its cash flow from operations; however, the impact is offset in cash flow from financing when subsequently funded through third-party financing.

Core debt represents the total principal amount of the company’s debt, less unrestricted subsidiary debt, DFS related debt, and other debt. See slide presentation on the FY19Q2 Earnings Event page for full reconciliation of the core debt amount.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:
This press release presents information about Dell Technologies’ non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a supplement to the results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). A reconciliation of each historical non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable historical GAAP financial measure is provided in the attached tables for each of the fiscal periods indicated.

No reconciliation of Dell Technologies’ non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income or non-GAAP net income guidance for fiscal year 2019 to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the attached tables. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude the impact of purchase accounting and in some instances amortization of intangibles, transaction-related expenses, other corporate expenses and adjustments for income taxes. Dell Technologies is not able, without unreasonable efforts, to accurately forecast the excluded items at the level of precision that would be required to be included in the reconciliations.

In some cases, you can identify these statements by such forward-looking words as “anticipate,” “believe,” “confidence,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “guidance,” “intend,” “may,” “objective,” “outlook,” “plan,” “project,” “possible,” “potential,” “should,” “will” and “would,” or similar words or expressions that refer to future events or outcomes.





Dell Technologies’ results or events in future periods could differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements because of risks, uncertainties, and other factors that include risks relating to the proposed exchange of shares of Dell Technologies Class V common stock for shares of Class C common stock or, at the holder’s election, cash (the “Class V transaction”), including the failure to consummate or delay in consummating the Class V transaction, including the failure to obtain the requisite stockholder approval or the failure of VMware, Inc. (“VMware”) to pay the special dividend or any inability of Dell Technologies to pay the cash consideration to Class V holders; the risk as to the trading price of Class C common stock to be issued by Dell Technologies in the Class V transaction relative to the trading price of shares of Class V common stock and VMware Class A common stock; the interests of directors and executive officers of Dell Technologies in the Class V transaction that may be different from, or in addition to, the interests of stockholders generally; and other risks discussed in the “Risk Factors” section of the proxy statement/prospectus filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 6, 2018, forming part of Dell Technologies’ Registration Statement on Form S-4. Other risks, uncertainties and factors include competitive pressures; Dell Technologies’ reliance on third-party suppliers for products and components including reliance on single-source or limited-source suppliers; Dell Technologies’ ability to achieve favorable pricing from its vendors; adverse global economic conditions and instability in financial markets; Dell Technologies’ execution of its growth, business and acquisition strategies; the success of Dell Technologies’ cost efficiency measures; Dell Technologies’ ability to manage solutions and products and services transitions in an effective manner; Dell Technologies’ ability to deliver high-quality products and services; Dell Technologies’ foreign operations and ability to generate substantial non-U.S. net revenue; Dell Technologies’ product, customer, and geographic sales mix, and seasonal sales trends; the performance of Dell Technologies’ sales channel partners; access to the capital markets by Dell Technologies or its customers; weak economic conditions and additional regulation; counterparty default risks; the loss by Dell Technologies of any services contracts with its customers, including government contracts, and its ability to perform such contracts at its estimated costs; Dell Technologies’ ability to develop and protect its proprietary intellectual property or obtain licenses to intellectual property developed by others on commercially reasonable and competitive terms; infrastructure disruptions, cyberattacks, or other data security breaches; Dell Technologies’ ability to hedge effectively its exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; expiration of tax holidays or favorable tax rate structures, or unfavorable outcomes in tax audits and other tax compliance matters; impairment of portfolio investments; unfavorable results of legal proceedings; increased costs and additional regulations and requirements as a result of Dell Technologies operation as a public company; Dell Technologies’ ability to develop and maintain effective internal control over financial reporting; compliance requirements of changing environmental and safety laws; the effect of armed hostilities, terrorism, natural disasters, and public health issues; Dell Technologies’ substantial level of indebtedness; the impact of the financial performance of VMware; and the market volatility of Dell Technologies’ pension plan assets.

This list of risks, uncertainties, and other factors is not complete. Dell Technologies discusses some of these matters more fully, as well as certain risk factors that could affect Dell Technologies’ business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects, in its reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Dell Technologies’ Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended February 2, 2018, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, and current reports on Form 8-K. These filings are available for review through the Securities and Exchange Commission’s website at www.sec.gov.

SUPPLEMENTAL SELECTED NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

These tables present information about the Company’s non-GAAP net revenue, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, EBITDA, and adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures provided as a supplement to the results provided in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”). A detailed discussion of Dell Technologies’ reasons for including these non-GAAP financial measures, the limitations associated with these measures, the items excluded from these measures, and our reason for excluding those items are presented in “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in our periodic reports filed with the SEC. Dell Technologies encourages investors to review the non-GAAP discussion in conjunction with the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures.
