BMC Software Announces Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

19:55 EDT Monday, May 06, 2013

HOUSTON (Business Wire) -- BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC), the recognized global leader in enterprise IT management, today announced results for the fourth quarter of its fiscal 2013.

GAAP net earnings for the full fiscal year were $331 million, or $2.13 per diluted share, versus $401 million, or $2.32 per diluted share in fiscal 2012. Non-GAAP net earnings for the year were $524 million, or $3.37 per diluted share, compared to $562 million, or $3.25 per diluted share in fiscal 2012.

GAAP net earnings for the fourth quarter were $73 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, versus $71 million, or $0.43 per diluted share in the year-ago period. Non-GAAP net earnings for the quarter were $127 million, or $0.87 per diluted share, compared to $123 million, or $0.74 per diluted share in the year-ago period.

Included in the financial tables is a reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP results.

The Company posted the following key results for fiscal 2013:

  • BMC's SaaS business increased its customer base by over 80 percent during fiscal 2013 and now has more than 600 active SaaS customers.
  • Fiscal 2013 Cloud-related license bookings totaled more than $100 million, increasing 35 percent year-over-year.
  • Balance sheet remains solid with $1.6 billion of cash and investments, $251 million in net cash and investments and $2.0 billion in deferred revenue as of March 31, 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company's results as determined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company has also disclosed in this press release and the accompanying tables the following non-GAAP information: (a) non-GAAP operating expenses, (b) non-GAAP operating income, (c) non-GAAP operating margin, (d) non-GAAP net earnings and (e) non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expense; the amortization of intangible assets; severance, exit costs and other restructuring charges; proxy contest costs; as well as the related tax impacts of these items; and certain discrete tax items. Each of the non-GAAP adjustments is described in more detail below. This press release also contains a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.

We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating results because they exclude amounts that BMC management and the board of directors do not consider part of core operating results when assessing the performance of the organization. In addition, we have historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures and we believe that inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with past reports of financial results. Accordingly, we believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency of supplemental information used by management.

While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Items such as share-based compensation expense; the amortization of intangible assets; severance, exit costs and other restructuring charges; proxy contest costs; as well as the related tax impacts of these items; and certain discrete tax items that are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on net earnings. As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net earnings, cash flow from operations or other measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures that are included elsewhere in this press release.

The following discusses the reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures:

Share-based compensation expense. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the compensation expenses required to be recorded by GAAP for equity awards to employees and directors. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding expenses related to share-based compensation, because these costs are generally fixed at the time an award is granted, are then expensed over several years and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management once granted.

Amortization of intangible assets. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs associated with the amortization of intangible assets. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding amortization of intangible assets, because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition.

Severance, exit costs and other restructuring charges. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude severance, exit costs and other restructuring charges, and any subsequent changes in estimates, as they relate to our corporate restructuring and exit activities, including asset impairments resulting from a fourth quarter fiscal 2013 operational review. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding severance, exit costs and other restructuring charges, in order to provide comparability and consistency with historical operating results.

Proxy contest costs. During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company became engaged in a proxy contest initiated by a shareholder of the Company. The Company recorded a charge of approximately $5 million for unplanned proxy contest expenses during fiscal 2013, consisting primarily of outside financial advisory, legal, solicitation and consulting fees. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding such costs, in order to provide comparability and consistency with historical operating results.

Provision for income taxes on above pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the tax impact of the above pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is calculated using the tax rates of each country to which these pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments relate. Management excludes the non-GAAP adjustments on a net-of-tax basis in evaluating our performance. Therefore, we exclude the tax impact of these charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.

Certain discrete tax items. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude net tax benefits of $6 million for fiscal 2012 associated with tax authority settlements related to prior years' tax matters. Management excludes the impact of these items in evaluating our performance. Therefore, we exclude these items when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.

In this press release, we refer to certain bookings information. Bookings represent the transactional value of new contracts closed and recorded in our financial statements, including amounts recorded to both revenue and deferred revenue. We also refer to growth rates for revenue and bookings at constant currency or adjusting for currency so that the business results can be viewed without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates, thereby facilitating period-to-period comparisons of the Company's business performance. Generally, when the U.S. dollar either strengthens or weakens against other currencies, the growth at constant currency rates or adjusting for currency will be higher or lower than growth reported at actual exchange rates.
