Raleigh, NC - December 20,2012 -- Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2013 third quarter ended November 30, 2012.
Total revenue for the quarter was $343.6 million, an increase of 18% in U.S. dollars from the year ago quarter, or 21% measured in constant currency, as detailed in the tables below. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $294.2 million, up 19% in U.S. dollars year-over-year, or 22% measured in constant currency, as detailed in the tables below.
"Strong execution, industry leading solutions and our ability to deliver a compelling ROI to our customers, all contributed to continued momentum and strong third quarter revenue growth in the face of a challenging global economic environment. Red Hat is benefiting from our position as a trusted vendor for IT," stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. "Since October of last year we have completed three acquisitions, and are announcing a fourth today to expand our portfolio of open source solutions and enlarge our addressable market. As our enterprise customers move to open, hybrid cloud architectures, we are addressing their needs with a clear roadmap based on industry-leading open source technologies."
GAAP operating income for the third quarter was $49.9 million, down 7% year-over-year, due largely to acquisition-related costs, including stock compensation and amortization. GAAP operating margin was 14.5%. After adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter was $82.5 million, up 5% year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 24.0%.
Net income for the quarter was $34.8 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with $38.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. After adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $56.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, as compared to $55.7 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter.
Operating cash flow was $100.2 million for the third quarter, as compared to $96.6 million in the year ago quarter. At quarter end, the company's total deferred revenue balance was $987.7 million, an increase of 21% on a year-over-year basis. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of November 30, 2012 were $1.35 billion.
"While we continue to increase investments in new technologies and growth initiatives, our solid performance is driving steady profitability and strong operating cash flow. In Q3, we used our strong balance sheet and cash flow to repurchase approximately $52 million of common stock, in addition to closing the FuseSource acquisition which enhances our offering in the fast-growing Application Integration software space." stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat. "We have continued this focused investment in key growth opportunities with the announcement of an agreement to acquire ManageIQ, Inc. ManageIQ positions us deeper in the cloud management market which analysts estimate will be a $3 billion market by 2016."
