Big sales, income gains

Nvidia last night posted record sales and net income for the fourth quarter of its 2006 fiscal year. During the three months to January 29, the company earned $98.1m (53 cents a share) on sales of $633.6m.

Q4 FY2006's gross margin reached 40.2 per cent, up 1.1 percentage points on the previous quarter and six percentage points on the year-ago quarter.

For the full year, Nvidia recorded revenues of $2.38bn, up 18.4 per cent from FY2005's $2.01bn. Net income totalled $302.6m ($1.65 per share), up 201.2 per cent on the $100.4m (57 cents a share) Nvidia reported for FY2005. ®
