Reaffirms Fiscal Year 2012 Guidance
SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Magma® Design Automation Inc. (Nasdaq:LAVA), a provider of chip design software, today reported revenue of $35.3 million for its fiscal 2012 first quarter, ended July 31, 2011, up 8 percent from the $32.6 million reported in the year-ago first quarter.
"In the first quarter, we continued to provide the most integrated and differentiated products that enable our customers to cost effectively design the most complex SoCs," said Rajeev Madhavan, Magma chairman and chief executive officer. "While revenue came in just below the bottom end of our guidance range, we achieved our operating margin and EPS guidance for the quarter. The positive reaction we experienced at June's Design Automation Conference to our Silicon One initiative indicates we are on the right track in providing leading edge semiconductor design solutions to our customers. Additionally, we continue to see strong design activity in the customer base which is a solid indicator of the health of the EDA market."
In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), Magma reported a net loss of $(0.1) million, or $(0.00) per share (basic and diluted), for the first quarter, compared to a net loss of $(3.3) million, or $(0.06) per share (basic and diluted), for the year-ago first quarter.
Magma's non-GAAP net income was $5.1 million for the quarter, or $0.07 per share (basic and diluted), which compares to non-GAAP net income of $2.9 million, or $0.06 per share (basic) and $0.05 per share (diluted), for the year-ago first quarter.
Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 excludes the effects of amortization of developed technology, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt premium accretion, charges associated with equity and other investments, restructuring charges, other legal and accounting costs related to a special investigation, and the related provision for income taxes. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 excludes the effects of amortization of developed technology, amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt discount/premium accretion, loss on extinguishment of debt, charges associated with equity and other investments, restructuring charges and the related provision for income taxes. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP results to GAAP results is included in this press release.
In the first quarter, Magma generated cash flow from operations of approximately $4.0 million.
For Magma's fiscal 2012 second quarter, ending Oct. 30, 2011, the company expects total revenue in the range of $37.5 million to $38.0 million. GAAP net loss per share is expected to be in the range of $(0.01) to $0.00 and non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) are expected to be in the range of $0.08 to $0.09.
For Magma's fiscal 2012, ending April 29, 2012, the company expects total revenue in the range of $158.0 million to $160.0 million. GAAP net income per share is expected to be in the range of $0.04 to $0.06 and non-GAAP earnings per share (EPS) are expected to be in the range of $0.38 to $0.40.
A schedule showing a reconciliation of the projected GAAP to non-GAAP EPS results is included in this release. A Financial Data Supplement containing additional second quarter and full fiscal year 2012 guidance, as well as detailed financial information intended to provide guidance and further insight into our business is available on-line in the Investor Relations section of the Magma website.
Presentation and Disclosure of Revenue
For the first quarter of fiscal 2012, revenue and cost of revenue is reported in Magma's Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations in two categories: Licenses and Services. Previously, revenue and cost of revenue was reported in three categories: Licenses, Bundled licenses and services, and Services. Magma management has concluded that the results of the Bundled Licenses and Services category of revenue do not indicate a material trend in the historical or future performance of its operations. Bundled licenses and services revenue and cost of revenue are divided into their component parts and included with either Licenses or Services. Presentation of prior period revenue and cost of revenue has been adjusted to conform with the current period.
Magma provides non-GAAP financial information to assist investors in assessing its current and future operations in the way that Magma's management evaluates those operations. Magma believes that this non-GAAP information is useful to investors by excluding the effect 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, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt discount/premium accretion, fees for the conversion or extinguishment of debt, charges associated with equity and other investments, acquisition-related expenses, restructuring charges and the related provision for income taxes, 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) operating expenses, research and development; (4) operating expenses, sales and marketing; (5) operating expenses, general and administrative; (6) operating expenses, amortization of intangible assets; (7) operating expenses, restructuring charge; (8) other income (expense), net; (9) provision for income taxes and (10) net income (loss) per share.
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 acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management excludes acquisition-related charges, such as amortization of intangible assets, to make more consistent and meaningful evaluations of Magma's operating expenses. Similarly, 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. 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, including both internal targets and publicly announced 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, such as stock-based compensation relating to stock grants and acquisition-related 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.
