"CA Technologies recorded a good second quarter," said Chief Executive Officer Bill McCracken. "We delivered solid financial performance by growing revenue, earnings per share and cash flow. We also continued to take more steps in support of our corporate strategy by building out our virtualization management, security management and cloud offerings through a number of key acquisitions and the announcement of new industry-leading solutions.

"I see our second quarter results as a strong indication that our strategy to manage and secure physical, virtual and cloud environments is the right strategy," McCracken continued. "The changes we made to our organization and our focus on rigorous execution are beginning to pay off. These results, along with our view of the back half of the year, give us the confidence to reaffirm our full-year outlook."


Total revenue growth in the second quarter can be attributed primarily to a significant increase in sales of the Company's service assurance, project and portfolio management, and identity and access management products. In addition, the services and education business showed healthy growth.

- Revenue was $1.110 billion, up 5 percent in constant currency and 4 percent as reported.
- Total revenue backlog was $7.832 billion, up 2 percent in both constant currency and as reported. The current portion of revenue backlog was $3.463 billion, up 3 percent in both constant currency and as reported.

- North America revenue was $675 million, up 8 percent in both constant currency and as reported.
- International revenue was $435 million, up 2 percent in constant currency and down 2 percent as reported.
- Total bookings in the second quarter were $1.018 billion, up 10 percent in constant currency and up 9 percent as reported primarily driven by new distributed product sales, partially offset by lower mainframe capacity sales compared with the previous year.
- The Company signed 14 license agreements with aggregate values greater than $10 million for a total of $361 million, compared to 18 agreements for a total of $366 million in the second quarter of fiscal year 2010.
- The weighted average duration of subscription and maintenance bookings for the quarter was 3.47 years, compared to 3.26 years in the prior year period.

- Operating income, before interest and income taxes, was $307 million, down 2 percent in constant currency and down 9 percent as reported.
- Operating margin was 28 percent, down 4 percentage points from the prior year period.
- Expenses, operating income, and operating margin for the second quarter were affected by increased costs associated with acquisitions. This was offset in part by a $10 million benefit from a one-time sale of an equity interest, which translated to a $0.01 benefit to GAAP and non-GAAP EPS.
- Year-over-year non-GAAP results, which excludes purchased software and intangibles amortization, pre-fiscal year 2010 restructuring costs and other costs, share-based compensation expense, and includes gains and losses on hedges that mature within the quarter, but excludes gains and losses on hedges that do not mature within the quarter:
- Operating expenses, before interest and income taxes, were $721 million, up 8 percent in constant currency and up 7 percent as reported.
- Operating income, before interest and income taxes, was $389 million, flat in constant currency and down 1 percent as reported.

Beginning in the first quarter of fiscal year 2011 the Company is excluding share-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP financial measures. The following guidance, which represents "forward-looking statements" (as defined below), takes into account the exclusion of share-based compensation expense from future non-GAAP results. To enable fiscal year 2011 guidance for non-GAAP earnings per share to be compared to fiscal year 2010 full year results, the Company provides full fiscal year 2010 results for non-GAAP earnings per share excluding stock-based compensation expense below.

The Company reaffirmed its revised outlook issued on July 21, 2010 for revenue and cash flow, and GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share. The Company also updated projected as reported numbers based on Sept. 30, 2010 exchange rates:

- Total revenue growth in a range of 3 percent to 5 percent in constant currency. At Sept. 30, 2010 exchange rates, this translates to reported revenue of $4.45 billion to $4.55 billion;
- GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations growth in constant currency in a range of 5 percent to 13 percent. At Sept. 30, 2010 exchange rates, this translates to reported diluted earnings per share of $1.54 to $1.66;
- Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations growth in constant currency in a range of 7 percent to 14 percent. At Sept. 30, 2010 exchange rates, this translates to reported non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.85 to $1.97. Fiscal year 2010 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share was $1.74 excluding share-based compensation expense; and
- Cash flow from operations growth in a range of 2 percent to 7 percent in constant currency. At Sept. 30, 2010 exchange rates, this translates to reported cash flow from operations of $1.400 billion to $1.475 billion.

Both GAAP and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share dollar ranges provided have increased to reflect currency fluctuations, year-to-date performance and reduced share count. Both GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share on the low and high end of the range have increased by $0.03.

This outlook also assumes no material acquisitions and a partial currency hedge of operating income. The Company also expects a full-year GAAP and non-GAAP tax rate in a range of 33 percent to 34 percent.

The Company anticipates approximately 506 million shares outstanding at fiscal year 2011 year-end and a weighted average diluted shares outstanding of approximately 508 million for the fiscal year. Guidance does not include the impact from any future stock repurchases.

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, includes 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, income from operations and diluted earnings per share exclude the following items: non-cash amortization of purchased software and other intangibles, share-based compensation, pre-fiscal year 2010 restructuring and other charges and 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. Non-GAAP income also excludes the interest on convertible bonds. 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. Such tax rates are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate, with the effective tax rate for GAAP generally including the impact of discrete items in the period such items arise and the effective tax rate for non-GAAP income generally allocating the impact of discrete items pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods. Non-GAAP adjusted cash flow excludes restructuring and other payments. Free cash flow excludes capital expenditures. We present constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our 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 US dollars are converted into US dollars at the exchange rate in effect on March 31, 2010, which was the last day of our prior fiscal year. 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.
