Analysts expected Marvell to post revenues of $601 million and EPS of $0.28 for the quarter (ended July 2017). Its free cash flow rose 134% YoY to $89 million in 2Q17, up from $38 million in 2Q16.

Marvell’s core business revenue rose 6% in 2Q17

Marvell’s Storage Controller revenues rose 13% YoY and drove the company’s core business revenue 6% higher in 2Q17. Similar to storage firms like Western Digital (WDC) and Seagate (STX), Marvell has also been impacted by a slowdown in the traditional HDD (hard-disk drive) market. The decline in HDD revenues has been offset by growth in SSD (solid-state drive). Marvell’s SSD revenue now accounts for ~25% of the firm’s total storage revenues.

Notably, Marvell is looking to improve its revenue growth by focusing on increasing sales of its SSD product segment.
