NEW YORK, May 8, 2018 - CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year 2018, which ended March 31, 2018.

Mike Gregoire, CA Technologies Chief Executive Officer, said:

"I'm pleased that CA delivered our second consecutive year of total revenue growth and achieved our guidance for the year. Our portfolio of solutions is more relevant today than ever before, as we enable customers to deliver rich, secure user experiences augmented by data and analytics.

As we continue to evolve CA to take advantage of market opportunities, we are rebalancing resources to accelerate the shift of more of our business to a subscription-based model. We will be investing more heavily and in a more focused way against this strategic priority. I am optimistic about where we are positioned today and our opportunities for FY19 and beyond."
 

ORGANIZATIONAL UPDATE

Adam Elster, our former President of Global Field Operations, is leaving CA. Interim leadership is in place pending an external search for Elster’s replacement that is underway.

Gregoire commented, “Adam has been a tremendous contributor to CA, and a great partner to me personally. Since taking on responsibility for global field operations, he has sharpened the technology know-how and customer-first focus of the team and laid the foundation of key go-to-market processes that are essential to competing and winning in today’s highly competitive environment. We wish Adam well in all his future endeavors.”

FINANCIAL OVERVIEW

REVENUE AND BOOKINGS


Fourth Quarter

  • Total revenue increased primarily due to an increase in software fees and other revenue and, to a lesser extent, an increase in subscription and maintenance revenue. Our fourth quarter fiscal 2017 acquisition of Veracode, Inc. (Veracode) contributed approximately 4 points of revenue growth for the quarter.

  • Total bookings grew due to an increase in renewal bookings and an increase in new product sales.

  • The Company executed a total of 18 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $800 million. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, the Company executed a total of 26 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $754 million.

  • The weighted average duration of subscription and maintenance bookings for the quarter was 3.67 years, compared with 3.56 years for the same period in fiscal 2017.
     

Full Year

  • Total revenue increased primarily due to an increase in software fees and other revenue and, to a lesser extent, an increase in subscription and maintenance revenue. Our acquisitions of Automic Holding GmbH (Automic) and Veracode contributed approximately 5 points of revenue growth for the year.

  • Total bookings decreased due to a decline in renewal bookings, which included a large system integrator transaction that occurred in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 with an incremental contract value in excess of $475 million.

  • The Company executed a total of 49 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $1.518 billion.

EXPENSES, MARGIN AND EARNINGS PER SHARE
 

Fourth Quarter

  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses increased primarily due to operating costs from our Veracode acquisition, which were mainly personnel-related. 

  • GAAP income tax expense included a $28 million tax benefit relating to the refinement of the provisional amount previously recorded for the impact from the US Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, enacted on December 22, 2017 (“US Tax Reform”). GAAP EPS was positively impacted by $0.07 from the US Tax Reform adjustment. Non-GAAP income tax expense excluded the aforementioned tax benefit relating to US Tax Reform.

  • GAAP EPS was positively impacted by $0.09 from an increase in GAAP operating margin. Non-GAAP EPS was positively impacted by $0.11 from an increase in non-GAAP operating margin. 



Full Year

  • GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses increased primarily due to operating costs from our Automic and Veracode acquisitions, which were mainly personnel-related.

  • GAAP operating expenses were also affected by higher amortization expenses of purchased software and other intangible assets from our Automic and Veracode acquisitions.

  • GAAP income tax expense included a $290 million tax charge relating to the US Tax Reform. This tax charge was comprised of $194 million related to the deemed US repatriation of earnings held by non-US subsidiaries, which is payable over eight years, and $96 million related to the re-measurement of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the change in income tax rates. GAAP EPS was negatively impacted by $0.70 from the US Tax Reform adjustment. Non-GAAP income tax expense excluded the aforementioned tax charge relating to US Tax Reform. Non-GAAP EPS was positively impacted by $0.10 from a decrease in the non-GAAP effective tax rate.

  • Non-GAAP EPS was positively impacted by $0.16 from an increase in non-GAAP operating margin, partially offset by a $0.12 impact from our Automic and Veracode acquisitions.

FISCAL 2019 RESTRUCTURING CHARGE

On May 2, 2018, the Company's Board of Directors approved a restructuring plan (“Fiscal 2019 Plan”) to better align its business priorities.

The Fiscal 2019 Plan comprises the termination of approximately 800 employees and facility exits and consolidations. These actions are intended to better align the Company’s cost structure with the skills and resources required to more effectively pursue opportunities in the marketplace and execute the Company’s long-term growth strategy, which includes a particular focus on shifting more of the Company’s business to a subscription-based model.

Actions under the Fiscal 2019 Plan are expected to be substantially completed by the end of fiscal 2019. Under the Fiscal 2019 Plan, the Company expects to incur a pre-tax charge between approximately $140 million and $160 million (including severance costs between approximately $90 million and $100 million and facility exit and consolidation costs between approximately $50 million and $60 million).
 

OUTLOOK FOR FISCAL 2019

The following outlook for fiscal 2019 is based upon exchange rates on the last day of the preceding quarter, which was March 31, 2018, and is under the ASC 605 Revenue Standard.  It assumes no material acquisitions, takes into account the costs and payments associated with the restructuring charge discussed above, and contains “forward-looking statements” (as defined below). As the Company implements the ASC 606 Revenue Standard for fiscal 2019, we will be reporting results under both the ASC 605 and ASC 606 Revenue Standards during fiscal 2019 but will be providing guidance that primarily messages the business to ASC 605 results for comparability purposes.

The Company expects the following:*

  • Total revenue to change in a range of flat to plus 1 percent as reported and minus 1 percent to flat in constant currency. At March 31, 2018 exchange rates, this translates to reported revenue of $4.25 billion to $4.29 billion.

  • Full-year GAAP operating margin between 24 percent and 26 percent and non-GAAP operating margin of 37 percent. The Company also expects a full-year GAAP and non-GAAP effective tax rate of approximately 22 percent.**

  • GAAP diluted earnings per share to increase in a range of 58 percent to 65 percent as reported and 50 percent to 58 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2018 exchange rates, this translates to reported GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.78 to $1.87.

  • Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to increase in a range of 6 percent to 8 percent as reported and 2 percent to 4 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2018 exchange rates, this translates to reported non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.75 to $2.81.

  • Approximately 406 million shares outstanding at fiscal 2019 year-end and weighted average diluted shares outstanding of approximately 412 million for the fiscal year.

  • Cash flow from operations to decrease in a range of 5 percent to 1 percent as reported and 7 percent to 3 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2018 exchange rates, this translates to reported cash flow from operations of $1.14 billion to $1.18 billion. This includes the cash impact related to the restructuring charge, which is estimated to be in the range of $80 million to $100 million. It also includes an estimated cash tax headwind of approximately $50 million compared to fiscal 2018 due to the convergence of ASC 606 and US Tax Reform. We estimate the impact of cash taxes in fiscal 2019 to create an approximate 4 point headwind to cash flow from operations and the impact of restructuring to create a 6 to 8 point headwind to cash flow from operations.

*In the outlook section, certain non-material differences between growth rates and translated dollar amounts may arise from impact of rounding.

**The tax rate guidance provided above assumes no further material refinements of the provisional amount previously recorded for the impact from US Tax Reform.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release, the accompanying tables and the additional content that is available on the Company's website, including a supplemental financial package, include certain financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items and therefore have not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Non-GAAP metrics for operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, net income, and diluted earnings per share exclude the following items: non-cash amortization of purchased software, internally developed software and other intangible assets; share-based compensation expense; charges relating to restructuring and rebalancing initiatives that are large enough to require approval from the Company's Board of Directors and certain other gains and losses, which include the gains and losses since inception of hedges that mature within the quarter, but exclude gains and losses of hedges that do not mature within the quarter. The effective tax rate on GAAP and non-GAAP income from operations is the Company's provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of pre-tax GAAP and non-GAAP income from operations, respectively. These tax rates are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate, with the effective tax rate for GAAP including the impact of discrete items in the period in which such items arise and the effective tax rate for non-GAAP generally allocating the impact of discrete items pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods. The non-GAAP effective tax rate is typically equal to the full year GAAP effective tax rate, therefore no adjustment is required on an annual basis. However, to minimize certain distortions that otherwise would have resulted from applying this methodology to the significant non-recurring impact on the Company’s tax expense from enactment of the US Tax Reform in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, such impact was recorded as a discrete item in fiscal 2018 only for purposes of the GAAP effective tax rate, but excluded from the non-GAAP effective tax rate, which also yields different full-year effective tax rates for the Company’s GAAP and non-GAAP results in fiscal 2018. Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share also excludes the impact of the US Tax Reform. Non-GAAP adjusted cash flow from operations excludes payments associated with the Board-approved rebalancing initiative, restructuring and other payments. Non-GAAP free cash flow excludes purchases of property and equipment. The Company presents constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how the Company's underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present this information, current and comparative prior period results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. dollars are converted into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate in effect on the last day of the Company's prior fiscal year (i.e., March 31, 2018, March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, respectively). Constant currency excludes the impacts from the Company's hedging program. The constant currency calculation for annualized subscription and maintenance bookings is calculated by dividing the subscription and maintenance bookings in constant currency by the weighted average subscription and maintenance duration in years. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. By excluding these items, non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and cash flows, to competitors' operating results and cash flows, and to estimates made by securities analysts. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate its performance and they are key variables in determining management incentive compensation. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, the Company has historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures to its investors and believes that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in its financial reporting. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this news release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are attached to this news release.

Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties occur, or should the Company’s assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from the forward-looking information described herein as believed, planned, anticipated, expected, estimated, targeted or similarly identified. We do not intend to update these forward-looking statements, except as otherwise required by law. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof.
