Sun Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: JAVA) reported results today for its third quarter of fiscal 2009, which ended March 29, 2009.

Revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 were $2.614 billion, as compared with $3.266 billion for the third quarter of fiscal 2008, and compared with $3.220 billion for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Total gross margin as a percent of revenues was 42.7, a decrease of 2.2 percentage points as compared with the third quarter of fiscal 2008 and an increase of 0.8 percentage points as compared with the second quarter of fiscal 2009.

Net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 on a GAAP basis was $201 million, or $(0.27) per share on a diluted basis, as compared with a net loss of $34 million, or $(0.04) per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2008, and compared with a net loss of $209 million, or $(0.28) per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. GAAP net loss per share includes a restructuring charge of $46 million primarily related to the restructuring announcement of November 2008.

On a non-GAAP basis, net loss for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was $52 million, or $(0.07) per share on a diluted basis, as compared with a non-GAAP net income of $132 million, or $0.17 per share, for the third quarter of fiscal 2008, and compared with a non-GAAP net income of $114 million, or $0.15 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2009. Non-GAAP net income per share excludes purchased in-process research and development, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, stock-based compensation, restructuring and related impairment of long-lived assets, net gain or loss on equity investments and the tax effect of these non-GAAP adjustments.

Sun ended the quarter with a cash and marketable debt securities balance of $2.990 billion and generated cash flow from operations for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 of $178 million – the third consecutive quarter of positive cash flow from operations in fiscal 2009, and following upon 19 consecutive years of positive cash flow from operations.

To supplement Sun's preliminary financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, Sun provides non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share data on a diluted basis. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to Sun's GAAP results and are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. Sun's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding certain gains, losses and charges that may not be indicative of Sun's core business operating results. Sun believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing Sun's performance. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate comparisons to Sun's historical performance and its competitors' operating results. Sun includes these non-GAAP financial measures because management believes they are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. Non-GAAP measures are reconciled to comparable GAAP measures in the table entitled “Calculation of Non-GAAP Net Income (Loss)” following the text of this press release.

IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
