Compuware Corporation Reports Second Quarter, Fiscal Year 2014 Results

Stock quotes in this article: CPWR

Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq: CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced financial results for its second quarter, fiscal year 2014 ended September 30, 2013.

Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $28.4 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, compared to $18.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the year-ago period. GAAP net income for the second quarter was $16.3 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $10.6 million, or $0.05 per diluted share in the year-ago period.

(Included in the financial tables is a reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP results.)

“Q2 was a solid quarter for Compuware, providing us with a lot of positive momentum going into the second half of the fiscal year,” said Compuware President and CEO Bob Paul. “The quarter was highlighted by strength in Covisint’s first public quarter, strong growth in APM, and significant progress toward stabilization of the mainframe business. On top of posting double-digit total revenue and license growth, the APM business unit also dramatically improved its contribution margin by 195 percent. And all of this was accomplished in a challenging macro-economic environment. APM’s results this quarter clearly indicate that our strategy to drive profitable growth is working. The second quarter was also successful in the furthering of our shareholder value creation initiatives, underscored by the tremendous progress we continue to make in terms of business optimization and cost rationalization. Our efforts in this regard resulted in substantial EPS growth for the quarter, as emphasized in the non-GAAP EPS. Though we know we still have more work to do, we are pleased with the progress we have made so far and with the plan we have in place to drive additional value to our shareholders.”

During the company’s second quarter:

  • Total revenues were approximately $228.1M, up 3.4 percent year-over-year

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company's results as determined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company has also disclosed in this press release and the accompanying tables non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expense; the amortization of acquired software and intangible assets; restructuring charges; advisory fees associated with certain shareholder actions and business transformation; and the related tax impacts of these items. Each of the non-GAAP adjustments is described in more detail below. This press release also contains a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.
