Nov 11, 2015, 04:53 ET from Magic Software Enterprises Ltd.

OR YEHUDA, Israel, Nov. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of mobile and cloud-enabled application and business integration platforms, announced today its financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2015.

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter Ended September 30, 2015

  • Revenues for the third quarter increased 13% year over year to a record-breaking $45.3 million, compared to $40.2 million in the same period last year. Revenues were negatively impacted by the devaluation of the New Israeli Shekel, Euro and Japanese Yen against the U.S Dollar by 9%, 16% and 15%, respectively. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates, revenues for the third quarter would have reflected an increase of 19% year over year to a record-breaking result of $47.8 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter increased 3% to $6.6 million, compared to $6.4 million in the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates (mainly resulting from the devaluation of the Euro and Japanese Yen versus the U.S Dollar), non-GAAP operating income would have reflected an increase of 10% year over year to $7.1 million. Operating income decreased 5% to $5.3 million, compared to $5.6 million in the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter increased 14% to $5.7 million, or $0.13 per fully diluted share, compared to $5.0 million, or $0.11 per fully diluted share in the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates (including the devaluation of cash balances denominated mainly in New Israeli Shekels, Euros, and Japanese Yen against the US Dollar), non-GAAP net income would have reflected an increase of 23% year over year to $6.2 million, or $0.14 per fully diluted share. Net income for the third quarter amounted to $4.2 million (or $0.09 per fully diluted share), compared to $4.2 million (or $0.10 per fully diluted share) in the same period last year.

Financial Highlights for the Nine-Month Period Ended September 30, 2015

  • Revenues for the first nine months of 2015 increased 5% to a record of $128.2 million compared to $121.8 million in the same period last year. Revenues were negatively impacted by the devaluation of the New Israeli Shekel, Euro and Japanese Yen against the U.S Dollar by 10%, 18% and 15%, respectively. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates, revenues for the first nine months would have reflected an increase of 12% year over year to a record of $135.9 million.
  • Non-GAAP operating income for the first nine months of 2015 increased 5% to $19.8 million compared to $18.9 million in the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates (mainly resulting from the devaluation of the Euro and Japanese Yen versus the U.S Dollar), non-GAAP operating income would have reflected an increase of 13% year over year to $21.4 million. Operating income for the first nine months of 2015 decreased 1% to $16.5 million compared to $16.7 million in the same period last year.
  • Non-GAAP net income for the first nine months of 2015 increased 9% to $16.1 million (or $0.36 per fully diluted share) compared to $14.7 million (or $0.34 per fully diluted share) in the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, excluding the negative impact from the erosion of foreign exchange rates (including the devaluation of cash balances denominated mainly in New Israeli Shekels, Euros, and Japanese Yen against the US Dollar amounting to $0.9 million), non-GAAP net income would have reflected an increase of 26% year over year to $18.6 million (or $0.42 per fully diluted share). Net income for the first nine months of 2015 decreased 1% to $12.5 million (or $0.28 per fully diluted share), compared to $12.6 million (or $0.29 per fully diluted share) in the same period last year.
  • Total cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments as of September 30, 2015, amounted to $80.9 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes non-GAAP operating income, net income, basic and diluted earnings per share and other non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets;
  • In-process research and development capitalization and amortization;
  • Equity-based compensation expense;
  • Change in valuation of contingent consideration; and
  • The related tax effects of the above items.

Magic Software's management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations as well as the net amount of cash generated by its business operations after taking into account capital spending required to maintain or expand the business.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Magic Software believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Magic Software's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Magic Software's results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.
