In 2009, MLNX generated a net income of $12.9 million on $116.0 million in total revenues. This represents a 42.4% decrease in net income on a 7.7% increase in total revenues from 2008, when the company earned $22.4 million on $107.7 million in total revenue.
MLNX has only one reportable business segment that develops, manufactures, markets, and sells the company's inter-connect semiconductor products. Most of the company's revenue comes from Asia.
The rise of cloud computing means that demand for global network services and hardware will grow. This provides MLNX with a larger customer base. On the flip side, an increase in suppliers offering devices similar to Mellanox's means the company faces increased competition.
