Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) Results
Net loss for the second quarter of 2012, on a GAAP basis, was $11.8 million, or $(0.24) per diluted share, compared to $13.8 million, or $(0.28) per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP Results
Cavium believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company's financial condition and results of operations.  These measures should only be used to evaluate the Company’s results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.  Non-GAAP financial measures in the second quarter of 2012 exclude expenses totaling $15.3 million related to: stock-based compensation and related payroll taxes; amortization of acquired intangible assets; and acquisition and restructuring related expenses. The reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in the financial statements portion of this release.

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $3.5 million or $0.07 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $0.9 million or $0.02 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012.  Gross margins, on a non-GAAP basis, were 60.6% and operating margins (non-GAAP income from operations as a percentage of revenue), on a non-GAAP basis, were 2.2% in the second quarter of 2012.
