Compuware Announces Fiscal Year 2013 Q3 Results

Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq: CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended December 31, 2012 that reflect improving margins and strong revenue momentum from its growth businesses, particularly its APM unit.

During the third quarter, total revenues were $257.9 million, compared to $253.1 million in the third quarter last year. Net income was $25.3 million, compared to $21.6 million in the third quarter last year. Earnings per share were twelve cents compared to ten cents last year, based upon 217 million and 222 million shares outstanding, respectively.

“Our results reflect the progress we are making in our business transformation, as our two growth businesses experienced year-over-year revenue growth and margin improvement,” said Compuware CEO Bob Paul. “We have stabilized the Mainframe business and continue to generate significant revenue and cash flow to fund investments and innovation in our growth businesses. Mainframe revenue grew 17 percent quarter-over-quarter, and we expect our new Compuware APM for Mainframe offering to meaningfully contribute to our Mainframe earnings going forward. At the same time, we continued to extend our competitive advantages beyond Mainframe into higher-growth, market-leading capabilities. Today, more than 40% of our revenues come from these higher-growth businesses, which is a dramatic improvement over prior years. Our APM business delivered 27 percent growth over last quarter, driven by the strength of the enterprise licensing business, which was up 89 percent from the second quarter.

“We are moving quickly to anticipate industry trends and drive the business forward with differentiated value solutions that optimize the user experience,” Paul added. “We remain focused on optimizing each of our business units through prudent capital allocation and improved efficiencies and are also pursuing specific shareholder value creation strategies such as the IPO of Covisint, for which we filed a registration statement with the SEC during the quarter. While we have additional work ahead of us, we are confident that our strategic approach to business transformation and shareholder value is delivering results.”
