Pervasive Software Reports Results for Its Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2013

Pervasive Software® Inc. (NASDAQ: PVSW), a global leader in cloud-based and on-premises data innovation, today announced financial results for the second quarter ending December 31, 2012.

For the second quarter ended December 31, 2012:

  • Revenue was $12.5 million, consistent with the company's $11.8 million to $12.8 million expectations communicated on October 23, 2012, and compared to $11.9 million for the second quarter of last fiscal year. Domestic revenue totaled $8.4 million or 67%, while international revenue totaled $4.1 million or 33%.
  • Net income was $0.4 million, or $0.03 diluted earnings per share, net of a $0.02 negative impact from unsolicited proposal costs, at the high end of expectations in the range of $0.01 to $0.04 excluding unsolicited proposal costs as communicated on October 23, 2012, and compared to net income of $0.5 million, or $0.03 diluted earnings per share, for the second quarter of last fiscal year.
  • On a non-GAAP basis, as described below, Pervasive realized net income of $1.1 million, or $0.06 diluted earnings per share, at the high end of expectations in the range of $0.03 to $0.06 excluding unsolicited proposal costs as communicated on October 23, 2012, and compared to net income of $0.8 million, or $0.05 diluted earnings per share, in the second quarter of last fiscal year. Non-GAAP results exclude amortization of purchased intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and costs associated with the unsolicited Actian Proposal and Related Solicitation of Potential Bids ("unsolicited proposal costs"), and assume a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 34%.

Pervasive continued to maintain a solid cash position in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, ending the quarter with approximately $45.7 million in cash and marketable securities. Database and integration products represented approximately 59% and 36%, respectively, of total revenue while Pervasive Business Xchange™ and Big Data & Analytics products made up the remainder. The Company had 263 employees at December 31, 2012.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The company provides non-GAAP measures for net income and net income per share data as supplemental information regarding the company's core business operational performance. The company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they exclude certain non-operating or non-recurring charges. The company's management excludes these non-operating or non-recurring charges when it internally evaluates the performance of the company's business and makes operating decisions, including internal budgeting, performance measurement and the calculation of bonuses and discretionary compensation. In addition, these non-GAAP measures more closely reflect the essential revenue generation activities of the company and the direct operating expenses (resulting in or from cash expenditures) needed to perform these revenue generating activities. Accordingly, management excludes the amortization of purchased intangible assets related to acquisitions, stock-based compensation related to employee stock options and unsolicited proposal costs.

The company believes that providing the non-GAAP measures that management uses is useful to investors for two primary reasons. First, it provides a consistent basis for investors to understand the company's financial performance on a trended basis across many historical periods. And second, it allows investors to evaluate the company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the company's management.

Non-GAAP measures are subject to material limitations as these measures are not in accordance with, or a substitute for, US GAAP, and therefore the company's definition or interpretation may be different from similar non-GAAP measures used by other companies and independent financial analysts. However, the company's management compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant and detailed disclosure of the items excluded in the calculation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, which should be supplementally considered when evaluating the company's results. In addition, items such as amortization of purchased intangibles, stock compensation charges and significant and non-recurring items that are excluded from non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share can have a significant impact on earnings. Management compensates for these limitations by evaluating the non-GAAP measure together with the most directly comparable GAAP measure. The company has historically provided non-GAAP measures to the investment community as a supplement to its GAAP results, to enable investors to evaluate the company's core operating performance the way management does. The non-GAAP adjustments, and the basis for excluding them, are outlined below:

Amortization of Purchased Intangibles

The company has recorded amortization of acquired intellectual property intangibles, included in its GAAP financial statements, related to the acquisition of assets of ChanneLinx, Inc. Management excludes these items for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The company believes that eliminating this expense in determining its non-GAAP measures is useful to investors because doing so provides a consistent basis for investors to understand the company's financial performance on a trended basis across many historical periods, it allows investors to evaluate the company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the company's management, and it allows a comparison with other peer companies in the software industry, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Finally, the company believes that non-GAAP measures of profitability that exclude amortization of acquired intellectual property intangibles are widely used by analysts and investors in the software industry.

Stock-based Compensation Expense

The company has incurred stock-based compensation expense as determined under ASC 718 (formerly SFAS 123R) for the quarters ending on or after September 30, 2005, and under APB 25 for earlier comparable periods in its GAAP financial results. Since stock-based compensation is a non-cash charge, the company excludes this item for the purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. In addition, the exclusion of stock-based compensation from the non-GAAP measures is done to allow a consistent basis for investors to understand the company's financial performance on a trended basis across many historical periods, allow investors to evaluate the company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the company's management, and allow a comparison with other peer companies in the software industry, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. The very nature of the stock-based compensation expense also makes it very difficult to estimate prospectively, since the expense will vary with changes in the stock price and market conditions at the time of new grants, varying valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and different award types, making the comparison of current results with forward-looking guidance potentially difficult for investors to interpret. The tax effects of stock-based compensation expenses may also vary significantly from period to period, without any change in underlying operational performance, thereby obscuring the underlying profitability of core revenue-generating operations relative to prior periods (including prior periods following the adoption of ASC 718, formerly SFAS 123R). Finally, the company believes that non-GAAP measures of profitability that exclude stock-based compensation are widely used by analysts and investors in the software industry.

Unsolicited Proposal Costs

The company has incurred expenses related to an unsolicited, non-binding proposal received from Actian Corporation on August 13, 2012. Management excludes these costs for purposes of calculating non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The costs associated with this unsolicited proposal include legal fees, financial consultation fees, M&A advisory fees and other costs related to these services. The exclusion of unsolicited proposal costs from the non-GAAP measures is done to allow a consistent basis for investors to understand the company's financial performance on a trended basis across many historical periods, allow investors to evaluate the company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the company's management, and allow a comparison with other peer companies in the software industry, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Finally, the company believes that non-GAAP measures of profitability that exclude such significant and non-recurring items are widely used by analysts and investors in the software industry.

Income Tax Adjustment

Income taxes represent a complex element of any company's income statement, and effective tax rates can vary widely from year to year and from company to company, especially in periods in which adjustments are made to a company's valuation reserve for deferred tax assets. The company uses a statutory tax rate of 34% to reflect income tax adjustments in presentation of its non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Utilization of a statutory tax rate for presentation of the non-GAAP measures is done to allow a consistent basis for investors to understand the company's financial performance on a trended basis across many historical periods, allow investors to evaluate the company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the company's management, and allow a comparison with other peer companies in the software industry, many of whom use similar non-GAAP financial measures to supplement their GAAP results. Finally, the company believes that non-GAAP measures of profitability that are based on more standardized statutory tax rates are widely used by analysts and investors in the software industry.
