N. Robert Hammer, CommVault's chairman, president and CEO stated, "Our second quarter results continued our trend of delivering consistent, double-digit revenue and non-GAAP operating income growth.  Our second quarter results were highlighted by year-over-year software revenue growth of 24% and Non-GAAP operating income growth of 63%.  Our financial and operational performance for the second quarter demonstrates the strong value we provide our customers and the sizeable market opportunity for our data and information management software platform and related services.  The momentum we carried through the first half of fiscal 2013 should provide a strong foundation for continued revenue and earnings growth as we move into the second half of the fiscal year."  

Total revenues for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 were $118.2 million, an increase of 21% over the second quarter of fiscal 2012 and an increase of 6% over the prior quarter.  Software revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $59.2 million, an increase of 24% year-over-year and an increase of 9% sequentially.  Services revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was $58.9 million, an increase of 19% year-over-year and 3% sequentially.

Income from operations (EBIT) was $22.4 million for the second quarter, a 71% increase from $13.1 million in the same period of the prior year. On a sequential basis, income from operations (EBIT) increased 36% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.   Non-GAAP income from operations (EBIT) increased 63% to $28.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $17.7 million in the second quarter of the prior year.  On a sequential basis, Non-GAAP income from operations (EBIT) increased 27% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

For the second quarter of fiscal 2013, CommVault reported net income of $13.9 million, an increase of $6.0 million compared to the same period of the prior year.  Non-GAAP net income for the quarter increased 61% to $18.3 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, from $11.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the same period of the prior year. 

Operating cash flow totaled $24.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to $11.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. Total cash and short-term investments were $353.9 million as of September 30, 2012 compared to $300.2 million as of March 31, 2012.  There were no share repurchases during the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

On October 25, 2012, the Board of Directors authorized a $50.0 million increase to the existing stock repurchase program and extended the expiration of the stock repurchase program to March 31, 2014.  As of October 29, 2012, CommVault has repurchased $117.2 million of common stock (5.74 million shares).  With the additional $50.0 million authorized by the Board of Directors, there is $102.8 million remaining in the repurchase program. 

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in Financial Statement Table IV included in this press release.  An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • On October 11, 2012, CommVault announced that its Simpana® 9 data and information management platform is fully integrated with Microsoft Corp.'s Cloud OS, including Windows Server 2012, Hyper-V and Windows Azure.
  • On September 13, 2012, CommVault announced that it is a recipient of a "Rising Star" award from the Global Technology Distribution Council (GTDC) in recognition of exceptional U.S. sales growth over the past year through distribution partners.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

CommVault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures:  non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share.  This selected financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  CommVault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  In addition, CommVault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating CommVault's ongoing operational performance.  CommVault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in CommVault's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community.   

These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP.   Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV included in this press release.

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional FICA and related payroll tax expense incurred by CommVault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards.  CommVault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare CommVault's core operating results over multiple periods.  When evaluating the performance of CommVault's operating results and developing short and long term plans, CommVault does not consider such expenses.  Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, CommVault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans.  In addition, because of the varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions such as volatility outside CommVault's control and the variety of awards that companies can issue, CommVault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between CommVault's operating results and those of other companies. 

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature.  Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in CommVault's operating results.  In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of CommVault's employees' compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance.  Lastly, the components CommVault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.  

CommVault's management generally compensates for limitations described above related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures by providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, CommVault management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS.  Non-GAAP net income excludes noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred by CommVault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards, which are discussed above, as well as applies a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 37% in fiscal 2013 and 36% in fiscal 2012. 

CommVault anticipates that in any given quarter its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations.  The GAAP tax rate for the six months ended September 30, 2012 was 39% and the GAAP tax rate for the six months ended September 30, 2011 was 36%.  On an annual basis, the GAAP tax rate over the past six fiscal years was 36% for fiscal 2012, 42% for fiscal 2011, 43% for fiscal 2010, 44% for fiscal 2009, 23% for fiscal 2008 and (241%) for fiscal 2007.  In addition, CommVault's cash tax rate has been significantly lower than its GAAP tax rate for the past three fiscal years.  The cash tax rate over the past three fiscal years is estimated to be approximately 14% for fiscal 2012, approximately 11% for fiscal 2011, and approximately 10% for fiscal 2010.  Also, the cash tax rate for fiscal 2013 is estimated to be approximately 23%.  CommVault expects that its cash tax rate will remain lower than its GAAP tax rate for the remainder of fiscal 2013 and into fiscal 2014.  CommVault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income.

CommVault believes that the use of a non-GAAP tax rate is a useful measure as it allows management and investors to compare its operating results on a more consistent basis over the multiple periods presented in its earnings release without the impact of significant variations in the tax rate as more fully described above.  It is also more reflective of the increase in the cash tax rate as it approaches the GAAP tax rate over the next one to two fiscal years.  Non-GAAP EPS is derived from non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis. 

CommVault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for CommVault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that CommVault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to CommVault's use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.
