NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

The Company's headquarters is located in Fremont, California and its primary manufacturing facility is located in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin.

2. CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
Basis of Presentation. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the results of operations for the periods presented. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) applicable to interim financial information. The results for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results for the entire year or any future periods. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 24, 2011, which are included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on August 29, 2011.
The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP") requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses as presented in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.
Fiscal Year. The Company has a 52 or 53-week fiscal year ending on the last Friday in June. The current fiscal year 2012 will be comprised of 53 weeks and will end on June 29, 2012. Fiscal year 2011 was comprised of 52 weeks and ended on June 24, 2011. The Company's fiscal quarters generally have 13 weeks ending on the last Friday of the respective period. When a 53-week year occurs, the Company includes the additional week in the first fiscal quarter. Accordingly, the first quarter of fiscal year 2012 ended September 30, 2011 was comprised of 14 weeks.
In fiscal year 2011, the Company's fiscal quarters ended on September 24, 2010 (first quarter), December 24, 2010 (second quarter), March 25, 2011 (third quarter) and June 24, 2011 (fourth quarter).
In fiscal year 2012, the Company's fiscal quarters end on September 30, 2011 (first quarter), December 30, 2011 (second quarter), March 30, 2012 (third quarter) and June 29, 2012 (fourth quarter).
Principles of Consolidation. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
There have been no changes in the Company's significant accounting policies for the nine months ended March 30, 2012 as compared to those disclosed in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 24, 2011.
Recently Issued Accounting Standards.
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income ("ASU 2011-05"), which requires that all non-owner changes in stockholders’ equity be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In the two-statement approach,

5

SILICON GRAPHICS INTERNATIONAL CORP.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS-(Continued)
(UNAUDITED)

the first statement should present total net income and its components followed consecutively by a second statement that should present total other comprehensive income, the components of other comprehensive income, and the total of comprehensive income. This requirement under ASU 2011-05 should be applied retrospectively and is effective for the Company beginning in fiscal year 2013. The Company does not believe that the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

4. ACQUISITION
Acquisition of SGI Japan, Ltd.
On March 9, 2011 (the “Closing Date”), pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") dated March 8, 2011, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, Silicon Graphics World Trade BV ("SGI BV") acquired the remaining outstanding shares of SGI Japan, Ltd., a Japanese corporation (“SGI Japan”). Prior to the Closing Date, the Company owned approximately 10% of the outstanding shares of SGI Japan and accounted for such investment as a cost method investment. SGI Japan operates primarily as a seller and servicer of high-performance computing ("HPC"), visualization, data center, and media and archive systems in Japan.
Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the total purchase price was approximately $17.9 million in cash, $1.8 million of which was placed in escrow to secure the Company's indemnification rights under the Agreement. The escrow funds were released in full in March 2012. The acquisition was expected to serve as a strategic entry into the large technical computing market of Japan and to enable the Company to extend its global reach, accelerate growth opportunities, and strengthen the relationships with its partners and customers in Japan. Furthermore, the acquisition was expected to enable the Company to more fully participate in the Japanese HPC market and benefit from SGI Japan's extensive service business.
The Company retained independent appraisers to assist management in the determination of the fair value of the various assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The fair value of the acquired assets, net of assumed liabilities and the fair value of the Company's previous investment, equals the $17.9 million cash consideration paid by the Company. The acquisition-date fair value of the equity interest in SGI Japan held by the Company immediately before the Closing Date was $2.1 million and was equal to its carrying value of $2.1 million. No gain or loss was recorded as the fair value approximated the carrying value of the investment.

(a) The customer backlog intangible asset is amortized as all revenue recognition criteria is accomplished for a particular customer order, reflecting the use of the asset.

(b) Goodwill is not amortized but is tested for impairment at least annually. The goodwill resulted from expected synergies from combining the operations of the Company and SGI Japan and from the value of SGI Japan's workforce. None of this goodwill is deductible for tax purposes. The goodwill is not material to the Company and is recorded as other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet.
The revenue and earnings of SGI Japan from the Closing Date to March 25, 2011 included in the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations was $5.4 million and net loss of $0.5 million for the three and nine months ended March 25, 2011 (see Note 22).
The Company incurred acquisition-related costs (i.e., advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other costs) of $1.1 million during the three months ended March 25, 2011. The acquisition-related costs were expensed in the periods in which the costs were incurred and are recorded in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.
The following unaudited pro forma condensed financial information presents the combined results of operations of the Company and SGI Japan as if the acquisition had occurred at the beginning of fiscal year 2011 (in thousands except per share amounts):

The unaudited pro forma condensed financial information is not intended to represent or be indicative of the condensed results of operations of the Company that would have been reported had the acquisition been completed as of the beginning of the period presented, and should not be taken as representative of the future consolidated results of operations of the Company. The acquisition-related costs of $1.1 million during the three months ended March 25, 2011 were not presented in the pro forma condensed financial information because this would not have a continuing impact on the combined results.

5. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE
The Company uses a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).
Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value on a Recurring Basis

There were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy during the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012. The Company’s cash equivalents, consisting of U.S. treasuries as of March 30, 2012, are classified within Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy as they are valued using quoted market prices of the identical underlying securities in active markets.
As of March 25, 2011, the Company had sold all of its investments in auction rate securities ("ARS"). The Company's ARS were classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. During the three months ended March 25, 2011, the Company sold its remaining ARS and received approximately $6.5 million in cash proceeds. The fair value of the ARS was approximately $6.2 million at the time of the sale.

All Restructuring Actions
The aggregate restructuring liability for all of these restructuring actions was $0.3 million as of March 30, 2012, all of which is included in other current liabilities in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheet.

15. CREDIT FACILITY
On December 5, 2011, the Company entered into a five-year senior secured credit facility in the aggregate principal amount of $35.0 million. The availability under the credit facility is limited to a borrowing base, subject to meeting certain conditions set forth in the credit facility. The credit facility includes a feature that allows the Company to increase the revolver amount in the first 18 months of the credit facility up to $15.0 million to an aggregate principal amount of $50.0 million, subject to meeting certain conditions set forth in the credit facility. The credit facility includes a $10.0 million letter of credit subfacility. See Note 24 "Commitments and Contingencies" for more information regarding the letter of credit.
The availability of the aggregate principal amount under the credit facility will fluctuate, generally monthly, based on eligible domestic accounts receivable and inventory due to a variety of factors including the Company's overall mix of sales and resulting accounts receivable with international and domestic customers, United States governmental agencies and a few individual customer accounts which may result in high concentrations of accounts receivable as compared to the overall level of the Company's accounts receivable. The credit facility contains financial covenants including, under certain conditions, maintaining a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, as well as other non-financial covenants, including restrictions on declaring and paying dividends, and is secured by substantially all of the Company's assets. The credit facility terminates on December 5, 2016. Borrowings under the credit facility bear interest based on a rate of the Company's choice equal to either: 1) the LIBOR plus a margin of 2.50 percent per annum or 2) the base rate plus a margin of 1.75 percent per annum. The base rate is the greater of (a) the Federal Funds rate plus 0.50 percent, (b) the LIBOR rate plus 1.00 percent or (c) the prime rate of the financial institution. The LIBOR rate and the base rate are determined at the specified date preceding or at the time of the borrowing in accordance with the terms of the credit facility. In addition, unused line fees are payable on the credit facility at rates of 0.40 percent per annum.
As of March 30, 2012, the Company had $15.2 million outstanding borrowings under this credit facility, including $0.2 million of accrued interest. The amount borrowed bears interest at 2.7% based on LIBOR as of March 30, 2012. As of March 30, 2012, the remaining amount available to be borrowed under the credit facility was approximately $17.8 million and the Company was in compliance with all covenants.

16. SHARE-BASED COMPENSATION
During the three and nine month periods ended March 30, 2012 and March 25, 2011, the Company granted stock options and restricted stock units to employees and non-employee directors under its 2005 Equity Incentive Plan and issued shares of the Company's common stock to participating employees under its 2005 Employee Stock Purchase Plan.

Stock Repurchase Program
In February 2009, the Company's Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program of up to $40.0 million of the Company's common stock. Under the program, the Company is authorized to purchase shares of common stock through open market transactions until such authority is revoked by the Board of Directors. As of March 30, 2012, the Company held in treasury 748,795 shares for a total of $4.9 million. No shares of outstanding common stock were repurchased during the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012.

18. EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic and diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing unaudited consolidated net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net income per share is computed by dividing unaudited consolidated net income by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive common shares are determined by applying the treasury stock method to the assumed exercise of outstanding stock options, the assumed vesting of outstanding RSUs, and the assumed issuance of common stock under the ESPP. Potentially dilutive common shares are excluded when the effect would be to reduce a net loss per share. As the Company had a net loss in the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 and March 25, 2011, basic and diluted net loss per share are the same for these periods.
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 and March 25, 2011 (in thousands, except per share amount):

Japan Plan
In October 2011, SGI Japan, Ltd ("SGI Japan"), its employees, and the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare approved an action to change SGI Japan's retirement benefit plan effective October 1, 2011 in accordance with the Defined Benefit Corporate Pension Law and Defined Contribution Corporate Pension Law of 2001 (the "Acts"). SGI Japan shifted a portion of its defined benefit plan to a defined contribution plan and modified the terms of its defined benefit plan in accordance with the Acts. The change in the retirement benefit plan reduced SGI Japan's retirement benefit obligation and resulted in a gain from curtailment of $1.3 million and a loss from settlement of $1.0 million. In addition, SGI Japan will increase its employer contribution to the defined benefit plan and defined contribution plan to fund the underfunded portion of the retirement benefit obligation as required under the Acts.

20. INCOME TAXES
The Company recorded a tax expense of $0.5 million and a tax benefit of $0.1 million for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012, respectively. The net tax benefit was primarily comprised of tax liability computed based on the Company’s foreign projected financial results for the year ending June 29, 2012 offset by the reversals of unrecognized tax

17

(UNAUDITED)

benefits including related interest. The effective tax rate differed from the combined federal and net state statutory income tax rate for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 primarily due to tax expense incurred by the Company's foreign subsidiaries with operating income, offset by the release of the unrecognized tax benefits due to lapse of statute of limitations, benefits from reversals of previously accrued taxes in foreign jurisdictions and benefit from utilization of net operating losses not previously recognized.
The Company recorded a tax expense of $0.7 million and $2.1 million for the three and nine months ended March 25, 2011, respectively. The tax expense was computed based on the Company's projected financial results for the year ending June 24, 2011 and amounts related to unrecognized tax benefits and interest. The effective tax rate used to record the tax expense differed from the combined federal and net state statutory income tax rate for the three months and nine months ended March 25, 2011 primarily due to domestic operating losses generated from which the Company does not benefit, tax expense incurred by the Company's foreign subsidiaries with operating income, and the Company's unrecognized tax benefits and related interest recorded during the period.
As of March 30, 2012, the Company has provided a partial valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Management continues to evaluate the realizability of deferred tax assets and related valuation allowance. If management's assessment of the deferred tax assets or the corresponding valuation allowance were to change, the Company would record the related adjustment to income during the period in which management makes the determination.
The Company had approximately $20.3 million of gross unrecognized tax benefit as of March 30, 2012, of which $8.0 million will impact the effective tax rate when recognized. The Company recognizes interest expense and penalties related to the unrecognized tax benefits within income tax expense. As of March 30, 2012, the Company also had approximately $14.6 million of interest, penalties and foreign currency differences attributable to the gross unrecognized tax benefits.
The Company is going through an audit in Canada and expects that the audit will be concluded in the next twelve months.  It is reasonably possible that over the next twelve-month period the Company may experience an increase or decrease in its unrecognized tax benefits.  However, it is not possible to estimate either the magnitude or the range of any increase or decrease at this time.

21. SEGMENT INFORMATION
Commencing in the quarter ended September 30, 2011, the Company started managing its business primarily on a geographical basis. Accordingly, the Company determined its operating and reporting segments, which are generally based on the location of its sales and service employees generating revenue, to be the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific operations. The Americas segment includes both North and South America. The Europe segment ("EMEA") includes European countries, as well as the Middle East and Africa. The Asia-Pacific segment ("APJ") includes Australia, Japan, and all other Asian countries. The segment information for the three and nine months ended March 25, 2011 has been retrospectively presented to reflect the new reporting segments.
The Company's operating segments are determined based upon several criteria including: the Company's internal organizational structure; the manner in which the Company's operations are managed; the criteria used by the Company's Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”), to evaluate segment performance; and the availability of separate financial information. The accounting policies of the various segments are the same as those described in Note 3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of this Form 10-Q and in Note 2 of the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company's fiscal year 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K.
The Company's CODM evaluates the performance of its operating segments based on revenue and operating profit (loss). Revenues are generally based on the location of its sales and service employees generating revenues. Operating profit (loss) for each segment includes related cost of sales and operating expenses directly attributable to the segment. A significant portion of the segments’ expenses arise from shared services and infrastructure that the Company has historically provided to the segments in order to realize economies of scale and to efficiently use resources. These expenses, collectively called corporate charges, include costs of centralized research and development, legal, accounting, information technology services, treasury and other corporate infrastructure expenses. These corporate charges are allocated to the segments and are reassessed on an annual basis. The allocations have been determined on a basis that the Company considers to be a reasonable reflection of the utilization of services provided to or benefits received by the segments. The Company does not include intercompany transfers between segments for management reporting purposes.

The Company derives the results of the business segments directly from its internal management reporting system. The presentation of our revenue for segment information purpose differs from the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated statement of operations. The segment information is presented on the basis which the Company's CODM evaluates the performance of its operating segments. The combined product and service revenue is allocated to product and service revenue on a contractual basis for segment information purposes.
The Company's assets are located primarily in the United States and are not allocated to any specific region. The Company does not measure the performance of its geographic regions on any asset-based metrics. Therefore, geographic information is presented only for revenue and operating profit (loss).
Customer information
For the three months ended March 30, 2012, two customers from the Americas segment each accounted for approximately 13% of the Company's revenue. For the nine months ended March 30, 2012, only one customer located in the Americas segment accounted for approximately 14% of the Company's revenue. For the three months ended March 25, 2011, a customer from the Americas segment and various agencies of the United States Government (collectively, U.S. Government) accounted for approximately 12% and 10% of the Company's revenue, respectively. For the nine months ended March 25, 2011, only one customer located in the Americas segment accounted for approximately 12% of the Company's revenue. No other customers accounted for 10% or more of the Company's revenue for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 and March 25, 2011.

(UNAUDITED)

At March 30, 2012, a customer from the Americas segment accounted for approximately 21% of the Company's accounts receivable. At June 24, 2011, two customers from the Americas segment accounted for approximately 13% and 12% of the Company's accounts receivable while the U.S. Government accounted for 11% of the Company's accounts receivable. No other single customer accounted for 10% or more of the Company's trade accounts receivable at March 30, 2012 and June 24, 2011.
Geographic Information
International sales to Japan, the only single foreign country which accounted for 10% or more of revenues, were $35.7 million or 18% and $111.0 million or 19% of revenues for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012, respectively. No other individual foreign country’s revenue accounted for 10% or more of revenues in the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 and March 25, 2011.

22. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
The Company acquired approximately 90% of the outstanding stock of SGI Japan for $17.9 million on March 9, 2011. Prior to that date, the Company owned approximately 10% of the outstanding stock of SGI Japan and accounted for the investment in SGI Japan under the cost method investment. As a result, effective March 10, 2011, SGI Japan became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and consolidated in the operating results of the Company.
Prior to March 10, 2011, the Company recognized product revenue and cost of product revenue from sales to SGI Japan. The Company ceased recognizing product revenue and cost of product revenue from sales to SGI Japan effective March 10, 2011.

23. FINANCIAL GUARANTEES
The Company has issued financial guarantees to cover rent on leased facilities and equipment to government authorities for value-added tax and other taxes and to various other parties to support payments in advance of future delivery on goods and services. The majority of the Company's financial guarantees have terms of one year or more. The maximum potential obligation under financial guarantees at March 30, 2012 was $4.5 million for which the Company has $4.3 million of assets held as collateral. The full amount of the assets held as collateral are included in short-term and long-term restricted cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated balance sheets.

24. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
Leases
The Company leases certain real and personal property under non-cancelable operating leases. The Company leases its facilities and office buildings under operating leases that expire at various dates through March 2017. Certain leases also contain escalation and renewal option clauses calling for increased rents. Where a lease contains an escalation clause or a concession such as a rent holiday, rent expense is recognized using the straight-line method over the term of the lease. In addition to the minimum future lease commitments presented below, the leases generally require that the Company pay property taxes, insurance, maintenance and repair costs. Also, under certain leases, the Company is granted an option to terminate the lease early by providing an advance notice and paying an early termination fee. The Company does not intend to terminate the leases early and hence the future minimum operating lease commitments disclosed herein consist of the total lease payments through the end of the initial lease terms. Personal property under operating leases is comprised primarily of automobiles and office equipment.
Future minimum lease payments under non-cancelable operating leases are as follows (in thousands):

Purchase Commitments
In connection with supplier agreements, the Company has unconditional purchase obligations that include agreements to purchase certain units of inventory and non-inventory items through fiscal year 2014. These purchase obligations are generally enforceable and legally binding on the Company and specify all significant terms, including fixed or minimum quantities to be purchased, fixed, minimum or variable price provisions and the approximate timing of the transaction. As of March 30, 2012, the outstanding non-cancelable purchase commitments totaled $20.4 million, of which $17.2 million are due in the next twelve months.
Letter of Credit
The Company's credit facility includes a $10.0 million letter of credit subfacility. As of March 30, 2012, the Company has $2.0 million of outstanding letter of credit to back the Company's obligation to pay or perform when required to do so pursuant to the requirements of an underlying agreement or the provision of goods or services to a supplier. See Note 15 "Credit facility" for more information regarding the credit facility.
Indemnification Agreements
The Company enters into standard indemnification agreements with its customers and certain other business partners in the ordinary course of business. These agreements include provisions for indemnifying the customer against any claim brought by a third party to the extent any such claim alleges that the Company's product infringes a patent, copyright or trademark, or misappropriates a trade secret, of that third party. The agreements generally limit the scope of the available remedies in a variety of industry-standard methods, including, but not limited to, product usage and geography-based limitations, a right to control the defense or settlement of any claim, and a right to replace or modify the infringing products to make them non-infringing. The Company has not incurred significant expenses related to these indemnification agreements and no material claims for such indemnifications were outstanding as of March 30, 2012. As a result, the Company believes the estimated fair value of these indemnification agreements, if any, to be immaterial; accordingly, no liability has been recorded with respect to such indemnifications as of March 30, 2012.
Contingencies
The Company may, from time to time, be involved in lawsuits, claims, investigations and proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business. The Company records a provision for a liability when management believes that it is both probable that a liability has been incurred and it can reasonably estimate the amount of the loss. The Company believes it has adequate provisions for any such matters. The Company reviews these provisions at least quarterly and adjusts these provisions to reflect the impact of negotiations, settlements, rulings, advice of legal counsel and other information and events pertaining to a particular case.
On May 1, 2007, Silicon Graphics, Inc., the predecessor company that the Company acquired in May 2009 (“Legacy SGI") received a legal notice from counsel to Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (“BHEL”), located in India, alleging delay in and failure to deliver products and technical problems with its hardware and software in relation to the establishment of a facility in Hyderabad. The Company assumed this claim in connection with its acquisition of Legacy SGI assets, and is currently engaged in arbitration. On January 21, 2008, BHEL filed its statement of claim against Silicon Graphics Systems (India) Pvt. Ltd. for a

sum of Indian Rupee (“INR”) 78,478,200 ($1.5 million based on the conversion rate on March 30, 2012) plus interest and costs. On February 29, 2008, the Company filed its reply as well as a counter claim for a sum of INR 27,453,007 ($0.5 million based on the conversion rate on March 30, 2012) plus interest and costs. The proceeding has commenced, witness testimony is now complete and the parties have been instructed to submit final arguments by the next scheduled hearing date (to be determined by the arbitrator).  The Company cannot currently predict the outcome of this dispute nor determine the amount or a reasonable range of potential loss, if any.
Third parties in the past have asserted, and may in the future assert, intellectual property infringement claims against the Company, and such future claims, if proved, could require the Company to pay substantial damages or to redesign its existing products or pay fees to obtain cross-license agreements. Litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce or defend the Company's intellectual property rights, to protect the Company's trade secrets or to determine the validity and scope of its proprietary rights or the proprietary rights of others. Any such litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of management resources, either of which could harm the Company's business, operating results and financial condition. Further, many of the Company's current and potential competitors have the ability to dedicate substantially greater resources to enforcing and defending their intellectual property rights than the Company.
Additionally, from time to time, the Company receives inquiries from regulatory agencies informally requesting information or documentation. There can be no assurance in any given case that such informal review will not lead to further proceedings involving the Company in the future.
The Company is not aware of any pending disputes, including those disputes and settlements described above, that would be likely to have a material adverse effect on its consolidated financial condition, results of operations or liquidity. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties and costs and unfavorable outcomes could occur. An unfavorable outcome could include the payment of monetary damages, cash or other settlement, or an injunction prohibiting it from selling one or more products. If an unfavorable resolution were to occur, there exists the possibility of a material adverse impact on the Company's consolidated financial condition, results of operations or cash flows of the period in which the resolution occurs or on future periods.

25. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
Credit Facility
On May 1, 2012, the revolver amount of the Company's credit facility was increased by $5.0 million to an aggregate principal amount of $40.0 million. As of May 9, 2012, the remaining amount available to be borrowed under the credit facility was approximately $22.7 million. See Note 15 "Credit Facility" for more information regarding the credit facility.

problems;
storage solutions ranging from cloud, high performance, and high density storage solutions which include integrated storage servers and active archive systems; and
a comprehensive range of software suites optimized to increase efficiency, performance, and manageability of our compute and storage solutions or software applications.
Our current strategy involves profitably growing our business in the compute, storage and service areas of technical computing, and broadening our customer penetration by industry and geography. We believe that these multiple paths to growth will create a strong foundation for our business in the long term.
Technical computing
We remain focused on expanding our opportunities within the technical computing market. We are focused on scientific and commercial high-performance computing, or HPC, public and private clouds, persistent and real time data storage, and emerging Big Data opportunities. The barriers to enter the technical computing market are high, and the technical computing marketplace requires the ability to translate complex customer requirements into architected, ready-to-deploy solutions with an expert sales force. Customer trust and proven relationships, deep technical and scientific domain expertise, strategic industry partnerships, expertise across many vertical industry markets, global delivery capabilities, and products designed at extremes of scale and speed are all key criteria for competing in the technical computing market. We have a strong track record of driving innovation in this market.
In fiscal 2011, we introduced new product offerings, including ArcFiniti™ and ICE Cube® AIR products. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, we introduced our innovative new SGI® ICE X™ HPC platform. SGI ICE X is the fifth-generation of our SGI ICE platform, and we believe that it is the most flexible supercomputer in the industry for addressing a wide range of applications and customer needs. We also continue to sell our SGI® UV™ and other storage products.
Diversifying our business
On March 9, 2011, we acquired the remaining outstanding shares of SGI Japan, Ltd. ("SGI Japan") that we did not previously own and SGI Japan became our wholly-owned subsidiary. We acquired SGI Japan to serve as a strategic entry into the large technical computing market of Japan and to enable us to extend our global reach, accelerate growth opportunities, and strengthen the relationships with our partners and customers in Japan.
Our revenue mix by geography shows that we are expanding our international presence resulting in a 40% of total international revenue in the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to 35% of total revenue in the three months ended March 25, 2011. In addition, our customer base continues to expand in various sectors, including the public, cloud and manufacturing sectors.
Change in Segment Reporting
In the quarter ended September 30, 2011, we started managing our business primarily on a geographic basis. Our operating and reporting segments consist of the Americas, Europe, and Asia-Pacific operations. The Americas segment includes both North and South America. The Europe segment ("EMEA") includes European countries, as well as the Middle East and Africa. The Asia-Pacific segment ("APJ") includes Australia, Japan, and other Asian countries. Each operating segment provides similar hardware and software products and similar services. We do not aggregate any of the operating segments in determining our reporting segments. Prior to this change, we reported our operating segments as product and service segments.
Credit facility
In December 2011, we entered into a five-year credit facility in the aggregate principal amount of $35.0 million. The credit facility includes a feature that allows us to increase the revolver amount in the first 18 months of the credit facility up to $15.0 million to an aggregate principal amount of $50.0 million, subject to meeting certain conditions set forth in the credit facility. We intend to use the credit facility to primarily fund our working capital requirements, capital expenditures and operations to the extent that cash provided by operating activities is not sufficient to fund our cash needs. As of March 30, 2012, our total outstanding balance was $15.2 million, including $0.2 million of accrued interest. Further, the credit facility includes a $10.0 million letter of credit subfacility and we had $2.0 million outstanding letters of credit as of March 30, 2012.
On May 1, 2012, the revolver amount of our credit facility was increased by $5.0 million to an aggregate principal amount of $40.0 million. On May 9, 2012, the remaining amount available to be borrowed under the credit facility was approximately $22.7 million and we were in compliance with all covenants.
Restructuring action in Europe

24


On March 16, 2012, our Board of Directors approved a restructuring action (the "Fiscal 2012 Restructuring Action") to reduce approximately 25% of our European workforce and close certain legal entities and offices in Europe. We adopted the Fiscal 2012 Restructuring Action to streamline operations and reduce operating expenses in Europe.
In connection with the Fiscal 2012 Restructuring Action, we expect to incur pre-tax cash charges between $14.0 million and $17.0 million, which consist of pre-tax cash charges between $13.0 million and $16.0 million for employee termination benefits, and up to $1.0 million for the planned office and legal entity closures, which expenses include contract termination costs and other associated costs. We expect to recognize the majority of the expense associated with the employee termination benefits prior to the third quarter of fiscal 2013. The closure of offices and legal entities are expected to take up to 18 months and the related expenses are expected to be recognized over that period of time. Upon completion of the Fiscal 2012 Restructuring Action, we expect to realize annualized savings of approximately $7.5 million in the aggregate.


Results of Operations
Summarized below are the results of our operations for the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012 as compared to the three and nine months ended March 25, 2011.
Financial Summary
Revenue increased $55.7 million or 39% in the three months ended March 30, 2012 compared to the three months ended March 25, 2011. In addition, revenue increased $139.4 million or 32% in the nine months ended March 30, 2012 to $573.5 million from $434.1 million in the nine months ended March 25, 2011. Our higher revenue in both periods resulted primarily from the increase in our product revenue in our Americas and APJ segment and increase in the service revenue of our APJ segment.
Our overall gross margin decreased by 236 basis points from 28.2% in the three months ended March 25, 2011 to 25.8% in the three months ended March 30, 2012. Also, our overall gross margin decreased by 127 basis points from 28.5% in the nine months ended March 25, 2011 to 27.3% in the nine months ended March 30, 2012. This change in overall gross margin is due to decreased in both product and service gross margin. The decline in our product gross margin was due to product mix shift to lower margin products, as well as a result of competitive pricing pressures in our EMEA region. The decline in our service gross margins was largely as a result of lower support services revenue as our new products replace our installed base of older generation products with higher margin support contracts.
Total operating expense increased for the three months and the nine months ended March 30, 2012 as compared to the three months and nine months ended March 25, 2011, due to the acquisition of SGI Japan in March 2011. In fiscal year 2011, SGI Japan did not significantly impact our total expense as there were only 15 days in the three and nine months ended March 25, 2011 in which the two companies were combined, compared to a full quarter's expense from SGI Japan in the three and nine months ended March 30, 2012.
