Recent Highlights & Strategic Announcements

  • On October 9, VMware unveiled an updated cloud management portfolio, including significant enhancements to the management products in the VMware vCloud® Suite. VMware also introduced a new product to the suite, VMware vCloud Automation Center™ 5.1, to further simplify and automate governance services across multiple, heterogeneous clouds. The announcement strengthened the VMware vCloud® Suite 5.1- the first solution to deliver the software-defined datacenter.

  • On December 4, VMware announced the newly formed Pivotal Initiative, in which VMware and EMC are committing key existing technology, people and programs from both companies focused on Big Data and Cloud Application Platforms under one virtual organization. The Pivotal Initiative will enable a new generation of workloads that can exploit the advancements VMware is driving with the software-defined datacenter, the de facto infrastructure at the heart of cloud computing, and with end-user computing.

  • In December, VMware established the Network and Security Virtualization group internally to align operations, engineering and go to market efforts to drive demand for next generation networking solutions associated with the software-defined datacenter. The Company appointed Stephen Mullaney, formerly CEO of Nicira, as vice president and general manager of the new organization.

VMware plans to host a conference call today to review its fourth quarter and full year 2012 results and to discuss its financial outlook. The call is scheduled to begin at 2:00 p.m. PT/ 5:00 p.m. ET and can be accessed via the Web at http://ir.vmware.com.

(1) For the fourth quarter of 2012, no costs were capitalized for the
development of software products. Amortization expense from previously
capitalized amounts was $13.2 million.

(2) Non-GAAP financial information for the quarter is adjusted for a tax
rate equal to our annual estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income. This rate is
based on our estimated annual GAAP income tax rate forecast, adjusted to
account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating the non-GAAP
financial measures presented above. Our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP
income is determined annually and may be adjusted during the year to take
into account events or trends that we believe materially impact the
estimated annual rate including, but not limited to, significant changes
resulting from tax legislation, material changes in the geographic mix of
revenues and expenses and other significant events. Due to the differences
in the tax treatment of items excluded from non-GAAP earnings, as well as
the methodology applied to our estimated annual tax rates as described
above, our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income may differ from our GAAP
tax rate and from our actual tax liabilities.

(3) Calculated based upon 427,266 basic weighted-average shares for Class A
and Class B.

(4) Calculated based upon 433,205 diluted weighted-average shares for Class
A and Class B.

(1) For the year ended December 31, 2012, no costs were capitalized for the
development of software products. Amortization expense from previously
capitalized amounts was $70.6 million.

(2) Non-GAAP financial information for the quarter is adjusted for a tax
rate equal to our annual estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income. This rate is
based on our estimated annual GAAP income tax rate forecast, adjusted to
account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating the non-GAAP
financial measures presented above. Our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP
income is determined annually and may be adjusted during the year to take
into account events or trends that we believe materially impact the
estimated annual rate including, but not limited to, significant changes
resulting from tax legislation, material changes in the geographic mix of
revenues and expenses and other significant events. Due to the differences
in the tax treatment of items excluded from non-GAAP earnings, as well as
the methodology applied to our estimated annual tax rates as described
above, our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income may differ from our GAAP
tax rate and from our actual tax liabilities.

(3) Calculated based upon 426,658 basic weighted-average shares for Class A
and Class B.

(4) Calculated based upon 433,974 diluted weighted-average shares for Class
A and Class B.

(1) For the year ended December 31, 2011, we capitalized $86.4 million
(including $12.4 million of stock-based compensation) of costs incurred for
the development of software products. Amortization expense from capitalized
amounts was $84.7 million.

(2) VMware realized a gain of $56.0 million on the sale of its investment in
Terremark Worldwide, Inc.

(3) Non-GAAP financial information for the quarter is adjusted for a tax
rate equal to our annual estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income. This rate is
based on our estimated annual GAAP income tax rate forecast, adjusted to

income is determined annually and may be re-calculated during the year to
take into account events or trends that we believe materially impact the
estimated annual rate including, but not limited to, significant changes
resulting from tax legislation, tax audit closures, material changes in the
geographic mix of revenues and expenses and other significant events. Due to
the differences in the tax treatment of items excluded from non-GAAP
earnings, as well as the methodology applied to our estimated annual tax
rates as described above, our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income may
differ from our GAAP tax rate and from our actual tax liabilities.

To provide investors and others with additional information regarding VMware's results, we have disclosed in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP income per diluted share, non-GAAP operating margin and free cash flows. VMware has provided a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure used in this earnings release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. These non-GAAP financial measures, other than free cash flows, differ from GAAP in that they exclude stock-based compensation, employer payroll tax on employee stock transactions, amortization of intangible assets, acquisition related items, the net effect of the amortization and capitalization of software development costs, and the gain that VMware realized upon its sale of its investment in Terremark Worldwide, Inc. during the second quarter of fiscal 2011, each as discussed below. Free cash flows differ from GAAP cash flows from operating activities in its treatment of capital expenditures.

VMware's management uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and compare operating results across accounting periods, for internal budgeting and forecasting purposes, for short- and long-term operating plans, to calculate bonus payments and to evaluate VMware's financial performance, the performance of its individual functional groups and the ability of operations to generate cash. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures reflect VMware's ongoing business in a manner that allows for meaningful period-to-period comparisons and analysis of trends in VMware's business, as they exclude expenses and gains that are not reflective of ongoing operating results. Management also believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating VMware's operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. Additionally, management believes information regarding free cash flows provides investors and others with an important perspective on the cash available to make strategic acquisitions and investments, to repurchase shares, to fund ongoing operations and to fund other capital expenditures.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors and others in assessing VMware's operating performance due to the following factors:

  • Stock-based compensation. Although stock-based compensation is an important aspect of the compensation of VMware's employees and executives, determining the fair value of certain of the stock-based instruments we utilize involves a high degree of judgment and estimation and the expense recorded may bear little resemblance to the actual value realized upon the vesting or future exercise of the related stock-based awards. Furthermore, unlike cash compensation, the value of stock options, which is an element of our ongoing stock-based compensation expense, is determined using a complex formula that incorporates factors, such as market volatility, that are beyond our control. Management believes it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation in order to better understand the long-term performance of our core business and to facilitate comparison of our results to those of peer companies.
  • Employer payroll tax on employee stock transactions. The amount of employer payroll taxes on stock-based compensation is dependent on VMware's stock price and other factors that are beyond our control and do not correlate to the operation of the business.
  • Amortization of intangible assets. A portion of the purchase price of VMware's acquisitions is generally allocated to intangible assets, such as intellectual property, and is subject to amortization. However, VMware does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle. Additionally, the amount of an acquisition's purchase price allocated to intangible assets and the term of its related amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition. Therefore, VMware believes that the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures that adjust for the amortization of intangible assets provides investors and others with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods.
  • Acquisition-related items. Acquisition-related items include direct costs of acquisitions, such as transaction fees, which vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition. Additionally, VMware does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle.
  • Capitalized software development costs. Capitalized software development costs encompasses capitalization of development costs and the subsequent amortization of the capitalized costs over the useful life of the product. Amortization and capitalization of software development costs can vary significantly depending upon the timing of products reaching technological feasibility and being made generally available. We did not capitalize software development costs related to product offerings during 2012. In future periods, we expect our amortization expense from capitalized software development costs to decline as software development costs are expected to be recorded as R&D expense as incurred given our go-to-market strategy, which has changed from single product solutions to product suite solutions. We also expect amortization of previously capitalized software development costs to steadily decline as previously capitalized software development costs become fully amortized.
  • Gain on sale of Terremark investment. In the second quarter of 2011, we sold our investment in Terremark Worldwide, Inc., which was acquired by Verizon in a cash transaction, and realized a gain of $56.0 million. Our investment in Terremark was made in connection with a business and technical collaboration and was not made to seek an investment gain or to fund our business operations. To the extent that sizeable gains or losses are realized on investments like this, they do not occur on a predictable cycle. Additionally, the timing of the event that triggered our divestment and whether or not we realized a gain or loss, was not under our control.
  • Tax adjustment. Non-GAAP financial information for the quarter is adjusted for a tax rate equal to our annual estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income. This rate is based on our estimated annual GAAP income tax rate forecast, adjusted to account for items excluded from GAAP income in calculating our non-GAAP income. Our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income is determined annually and may be adjusted during the year to take into account events or trends that we believe materially impact the estimated annual rate including, but not limited to, significant changes resulting from tax legislation, material changes in the geographic mix of revenues and expenses and other significant events. Due to the differences in the tax treatment of items excluded from non-GAAP earnings, as well as the methodology applied to our estimated annual tax rates as described above, our estimated tax rate on non-GAAP income may differ from our GAAP tax rate and from our actual tax liabilities.

Additionally, we believe that the non-GAAP financial measure free cash flows is meaningful to investors because we review cash flows generated from operations after taking into consideration capital expenditures due to the fact that these expenditures are considered to be a necessary component of ongoing operations.

The use of non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations because they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect VMware's operations. Specifically, in the case of stock-based compensation, if VMware did not pay out a portion of its compensation in the form of stock-based compensation and related employer payroll taxes, the cash salary expense included in operating expenses would be higher, which would affect VMware's cash position. VMware compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for or in isolation from, measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered measures of VMware's liquidity. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. Management encourages investors and others to review VMware's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
