Progress Software Reports 2012 Fiscal Fourth Quarter And Year End Results

Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), a global software company that simplifies and enables the development, deployment and management of business applications, announced today results for its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended November 30, 2012.

As of the fiscal fourth quarter of 2012, the results of all non-Core product lines are reported in discontinued operations because those product lines have been divested or are under agreement to be divested, and have also met the accounting criteria for such classification. Continuing operations include the results of the Core product lines and principally general and administrative costs related to the non-Core product lines, which do not qualify for discontinued operations. References to the Core product lines or Core segment include Progress® OpenEdge® platform, DataDirect® Connect products and the Decision Analytics portfolio (comprising Progress Apama®, Progress Corticon® BRMS and the Progress Control Tower®). References to the non-Core product lines include Actional, Artix, DataXtend, FuseSource, ObjectStore, Orbacus, Orbix, Savvion, Shadow and Sonic.

Revenue from continued and discontinued operations was $121.7 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $136.3 million in the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP EPS was $0.42 in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2012, compared to $0.34 in the same quarter last year.

Consolidated results in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2012 were:

  • Revenue was $91.3 million, essentially flat on a constant currency basis year over year, or down 2% using actual exchange rates, and excludes $30.5 million and $42.8 million of revenue from discontinued operations in the current quarter and same quarter last year, respectively;
  • Income from operations was $16.9 million compared to $28.4 million in the same quarter last year;
