SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Arista Networks, Inc. (NYSE: ANET), an industry leader in software-driven cloud networking solutions for large data center and computing environments, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Revenue of $137.9 million, an increase of 65.2% compared to the second quarter of 2013, and an increase of 17.7% from the first quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP gross margin of 67.7%, compared to GAAP gross margin of 64.6% in the second quarter of 2013 and 69.4% in the first quarter of 2014.
  • GAAP net income of $21.6 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $10.3 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 20131.
  • Non-GAAP net income of $23.7 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $12.3 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013.

GAAP diluted per share amounts exclude net income attributable to preferred shareholders through the date of the initial public offering (IPO) on June 6, 2014, and exclude the impact of the full weighting of the additional common shares outstanding in connection with the IPO.

“I’m pleased with our performance in Q2 2014 as we increased to 2,700 customers this quarter,” stated Jayshree Ullal, Arista President and CEO. “We saw good balance across our top four verticals, as customers adopted our new Arista 7000 Spine and Spline products for cloud networking innovation and reduced total cost of ownership (TCO).”

Commenting on the company's financial results, Kelyn Brannon, CFO of Arista Networks, said, "Our non-GAAP net income rose by 92.5% in the second quarter, compared with the same quarter of the prior year. We also saw solid revenue growth while maintaining our gross margin and operating margin. During Q2, we also generated cash flow from operations of $46.3 million and we ended the quarter with approximately $397.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, including net proceeds of $238.7 million from our IPO in June 2014."
