Marvell Technology Group Ltd. shares fell in the extended session Thursday after part of the chip maker’s outlook range fell below the Wall Street consensus amid a global chip shortage.

Marvell  /zigman2/quotes/200053236/composite MRVL +0.11%  shares fell 4% after hours, following a 0.1% rise in the regular session to close at $63.24.

Marvell forecast adjusted third-quarter earnings of 35 cents to 41 cents a share on revenue of $1.11 billion to $1.18 billion. Analysts expect 37 cents a share on revenue of $1.13 billion.

Meanwhile, the company reported a fiscal second-quarter loss of $276.4 million, or 34 cents a share, compared with a loss of $88.2 million, or 13 cents a share, in the year-ago period.

Adjusted earnings, which exclude stock-based compensation expenses and other items, were 34 cents a share, compared with 21 cents a share in the year-ago quarter.

Revenue rose to $1.08 billion from $727.3 million in the year-ago quarter. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast earnings of 31 cents a share on revenue of $1.07 billion.

“I am pleased that stand-alone Marvell and the acquired Inphi businesses both contributed to our strong year-over-year revenue growth,” said Matt Murphy, Marvell’s chief executive, in a statement. “We expect year-over-year revenue growth will accelerate in the third quarter, led by substantial contributions from the cloud data-center market. In addition, we expect our 5G business to continue to grow with strong sequential revenue growth in the third quarter, and a significant step-up projected in the fourth quarter.”

Marvell announced its intention to  acquire Inphi Corp. last October , and closed the deal in April.
