NVIDIA Announces Financial Results for First Quarter Fiscal 2023

NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today reported record revenue for the first quarter ended May 1, 2022, of $8.29 billion, up 46% from a year ago and up 8% from the previous quarter, with record revenue in Data Center and Gaming. GAAP earnings per diluted share for the quarter were $0.64, down 16% from a year ago and down 46% from the previous quarter, and include an after-tax impact of $0.52 related to the $1.35 billion Arm acquisition termination charge. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share were $1.36, up 49% from a year ago and up 3% from the previous quarter.

"We delivered record results in Data Center and Gaming against the backdrop of a challenging macro environment," said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "The effectiveness of deep learning to automate intelligence is driving companies across industries to adopt NVIDIA for AI computing. Data Center has become our largest platform, even as Gaming achieved a record quarter.
"We are gearing up for the largest wave of new products in our history with new GPU, CPU, DPU and robotics processors ramping in the second half. Our new chips and systems will greatly advance AI, graphics, Omniverse, self-driving cars and robotics, as well as the many industries these technologies impact," he said.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, NVIDIA returned to shareholders $2.10 billion in share repurchases and cash dividends.

On May 23, 2022, the board of directors increased and extended the company's share repurchase program to repurchase additional common stock up to a total of $15 billion through December 2023.

NVIDIA will pay its next quarterly cash dividend of $0.04 per share on July 1, 2022, to all shareholders of record on June 9, 2022.

It'll be a big slam on their own faces, so why bother? Worst case is they'll be fined like this time but it doesn't hurt at all.

46% profit increase which (partially) caused %50 inflation in the world , due to high demand on oil, which is the main fuel that is used in crypto currency mining process, high demand on chips, (same as previous) and also the highly inflated money that earned from this and increased demand on everything therefore increased the price of everything, (real estate, rents, vehicle, transportation and everything)
Still some miners here will defend mining because they think they earn (100-200$), and they are still not aware that not only them, but aost everybody in the world has been paying a lot lot more than that amount .
