In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Magma reported a net loss of $(13.6) million, or $(0.37) per share (basic and diluted), for the third quarter, compared to a net loss of $(8.1) million, or $(0.23) per share (basic and diluted), for the year-ago third quarter.
Magma's non-GAAP net income was $2.4 million for the third quarter, or $0.06 per share (diluted), which compares to non-GAAP net income of $3.5 million, or $0.09 per share (diluted), for the year-ago third quarter.
Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2007 excludes the effects of amortization of developed technology, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, in-process research and development, acquisition-related expenses, charges associated with losses in equity investments and the tax effects of these adjustments. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP results to GAAP results is included in this press release.
The costs of Magma's patent litigation with Synopsys in the third quarter were $2.3 million, or $0.04 per share (diluted), net of tax effect. In the third quarter Magma generated cash flow from operations of approximately $4.5 million.
"We achieved record revenue as we execute on our fiscal 2007 plan," said Rajeev Madhavan, chairman and CEO of Magma. "Our R&D teams continue to develop products that deliver superior results. We had a very good third quarter."
Magma provides non-GAAP financial information to assist investors in assessing its operations in the way that Magma's management evaluates those operations. Magma believes that this non-GAAP information provides useful information to investors by excluding the effects of some expenses that are required to be recorded under GAAP but that Magma believes are not indicative of Magma's core operating results, or that are expected to be incurred over a limited period of time.
Magma's management evaluates and makes operating decisions about its business operations primarily based on bookings, revenue and the core costs of those business operations. Management believes that the amortization of developed technology and intangible assets, stock-based compensation, in-process research and development charges, acquisition-related expenses, loss on equity investments and the tax effects of its non-GAAP adjustments (yielding a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 25 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2007) and other significant unusual items are not operating costs of its core software and service business operations. Therefore, management presents non-GAAP financial measures, along with GAAP measures, in this earnings release by excluding these items from the period expenses. The income statement line items affected are as follows: (1) cost of revenue, licenses; (2) cost of revenue, services; (3) total cost of revenue; (4) gross profit; (5) operating expenses, research and development; (6) operating expenses, in-process research and development; (7) operating expenses, sales and marketing; (8) operating expenses, general and administrative; (9) operating expenses, amortization of intangible asset; (10) total operating expenses; (11) operating income (loss); (12) other income (expense), net; (13) total interest and other income (expense), net; (14) net income (loss) before income taxes; (15) provision for income taxes; (16) net income (loss) before cumulative effect of change in accounting principle; (17) cumulative effect of change in accounting principle; (18) net income (loss); and (19) net income (loss) per share. To determine its non-GAAP provision for income taxes, Magma recalculates tax based on non-GAAP income before income taxes and adjusts accordingly.
For each such non-GAAP financial measure, the adjustment provides management with information about Magma's underlying operating performance that enables a more meaningful comparison of its financial results in different reporting periods. For example, since Magma does not undertake significant restructuring or realignments on a predictable cycle, management would have difficulty evaluating Magma's profitability as measured by gross profit, operating profit, income before taxes and net income on a period-to-period basis unless it excluded these charges. Similarly, since Magma does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management excludes acquisition-related charges, such as in-process research and development charges, to make more consistent and meaningful evaluations of Magma's operating expenses. Management also uses these measures to help it make budgeting decisions between those expenses that affect operating expenses and operating margin (such as research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expenses), and those expenses that affect cost of revenue and gross margin (such as product development expenses).
Further, the availability of non-GAAP financial information helps management track actual performance relative to financial targets. Making this non-GAAP financial information available also helps investors compare Magma's performance with the announced operating results of its principal competitors, which regularly provide similar non-GAAP financial information.
Management recognizes that the use of these non-GAAP measures has limitations, including the fact that management must exercise judgment in determining whether some types of charges should be excluded from non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes, however, that providing this non-GAAP financial information facilitates consistent comparison of Magma's financial performance over time. Magma has historically provided non-GAAP results to the investment community, not as an alternative but as a supplement to GAAP information, to enable investors to evaluate Magma's core operating performance in the way that management does.
