Cray reports Q3 EPS (47c), consensus (38c)
Reports Q3 revenue $92.8M, consensus $90.58M. "We had a solid quarter, highlighted by several large system installations, as well as continued strong bookings and market activity," said Peter Ungaro, president and CEO of Cray. "Today we launched our next generation supercomputing platform, code-named Shasta, which we plan to begin shipping late next year. This system's revolutionary design, including a new Cray designed system interconnect, builds on our long history of leadership at the high-end of the market to deliver game-changing innovations in hardware and software. NERSC, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, selected Shasta and a future-generation Cray storage solution for its NERSC-9 program. At $146 million, this is one of the largest awards in our company's history and a major endorsement of our technology roadmap. Without a doubt, Shasta represents a major step in setting ourselves up for strong future growth."
