Keysight Technologies Reports Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2016 Results

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today reported financial results for the fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2016.

"The fourth quarter was a strong close to the year with revenue coming in at the high-end of our guidance as customers increased investments in next-generation technologies," said Ron Nersesian, Keysight president and CEO.

"We are pleased with our performance throughout the fiscal year as we navigated a challenging market environment and continued to execute our strategy to transform Keysight for long-term growth. We increased our investments in research and development, while at the same time generating solid profitability and cash flow. We believe we are delivering above-market results and the strategic actions we have taken are strengthening our market position," Nersesian added.

Fourth Quarter Financial Summary
  • Revenue was $751 million, compared with $750 million on a GAAP basis and $756 million on a non-GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP core revenue, which excludes the impact of currency and revenue from acquisitions completed within the last twelve months, declined 2 percent year-over-year.
  • GAAP operating margin was 14 percent, compared with 15 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP operating margin was 19 percent, compared with 21 percent in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • GAAP net income was $92 million, or $0.53 per share, compared with $277 million, or $1.61 per share in the fourth quarter of 2015, which included the recognition of a $201 million tax benefit. Non-GAAP net income was $110 million, or $0.64 per share, compared with $122 million, or $0.71 per share in the fourth quarter of 2015.
  • As of Oct. 31, 2016, cash and cash equivalents totaled $783 million.

Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Summary
  • Revenue grew 2 percent over last year and totaled $2.9 billion.
  • GAAP operating margin was 14 percent, compared with 15 percent in fiscal 2015. Non-GAAP operating margin was 19 percent, compared with 20 percent in fiscal 2015.
  • GAAP net income was $335 million, or $1.95 per share, compared with $513 million, or $3.00 per share in fiscal 2015, which included the recognition of a $213 million tax benefit. Non-GAAP net income was $419 million, or $2.43 per share, compared with $432 million, or $2.52 per share in fiscal 2015.

Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP information are contained in the attached tables and discussed in the section titled "Non-GAAP Measures."

Reporting Segments

  • Communications Solutions Group (CSG)
    • CSG revenue was $442 million in the fourth quarter, a 2 percent decline when compared with $453 million in prior year fourth quarter. Growth in our commercial communications end market was offset by a decline in aerospace, defense and government sales in Russia and China.
    • For fiscal 2016, CSG generated $1.8 billion in revenue, compared with revenue of $1.7 billion in fiscal 2015.
  • Electronic Industrial Solutions Group (EISG)
    • EISG revenue grew 1 percent in the fourth quarter to $201 million when compared with $200 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, driven by strong growth for leading-edge semiconductor process technologies and automotive applications, partially offset by ongoing weakness for general electronics solutions, particularly in Europe.
    • For fiscal 2016, EISG generated $776 million in revenue, compared with revenue of $758 million in fiscal 2015.
  • Services Solutions Group (SSG)
    • SSG revenue in the fourth quarter grew 5 percent year-over-year to reach a new record of $108 million which compares with $103 million in the fourth quarter of 2015. SSG revenue growth was driven by an increase in remarketed solution sales.
    • For fiscal 2016, SSG generated $402 million in revenue, compared with revenue of $401 million in fiscal 2015.

First Fiscal Quarter Outlook

Keysight provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations.

Keysight's first quarter 2017 revenue is expected to be in the range of $706 million to $746 million. First quarter non-GAAP earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $0.49 to $0.63. Non-GAAP earnings per share as projected for the first quarter of fiscal year 2017 exclude items that pertain to future events and are not currently estimable with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Therefore, no reconciliation to GAAP amounts has been provided. Further information is discussed in the section titled "Non-GAAP Measures" below.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains forward-looking statements as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and is subject to the safe harbors created therein. The forward-looking statements contained herein include, but are not limited to, information regarding Keysight's future revenues, earnings and profitability; the future demand for the company's products and services; and customer expectations. These forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that could cause Keysight's results to differ materially from management's current expectations.

Forward-looking statements are based on the beliefs and assumptions of Keysight's management and on currently available information. Keysight undertakes no responsibility to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement.

Non-GAAP Measures

Keysight uses a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The definitions of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others, and such non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Keysight generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management's comparisons to historic operating results, to competitors' operating results and to guidance provided to investors. In addition, Keysight believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Non-GAAP revenue for Q4 FY16 and FY16 excludes the impact of fair value adjustment to acquisition-related deferred revenue balances. Non-GAAP core revenue is defined as non-GAAP revenue excluding the impact of currency and revenue from acquisitions until the first anniversary of the acquisition closing date. Reconciliations between GAAP revenue, non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP core revenue for Q4 FY16 and FY16 are provided on page 5 of the attached tables.

Segment data reflect the results of our reportable segments under its management reporting system, which are not necessarily in conformity with GAAP financial measures. Segment revenue and income from operations are consistent with the non-GAAP measure as described below. Segment data are provided on page 8 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of this data.

Non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share for Q4 FY16, FY16 and as projected for Q1 FY17 exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Keysight also excludes any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Earnings per share is based on diluted shares. The reconciliation between non-GAAP operating margin and GAAP operating margin for Q4 FY16 and FY16 is set forth on page 6, and the reconciliation between non-GAAP net income and GAAP net income is set forth on page 7 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of these non-GAAP measures.

Keysight utilizes a fixed long-term projected non-GAAP tax rate. When projecting this long-term rate, Keysight excludes any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Additionally, Keysight evaluates its current long-term projections, current tax structure and other factors such as existing tax positions in various jurisdictions and key tax holidays in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates. This tax rate could change in the future for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to significant changes in geographic earnings mix including acquisition activity, or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates. The above reasons also limit our ability to reasonably estimate the future GAAP tax rate and provide a reconciliation of the expected Non-GAAP earnings per share for first quarter 2017 to GAAP amounts.

Non-GAAP core revenue is defined as Non- GAAP revenue excluding the impact of currency and acquisitions completed within the last twelve months.
 
Management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting an additional way of viewing aspects of Keysight's operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures, help our investors to better identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitate easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We excluded the effect of recent acquisitions because the nature, size and number of these can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers, which we believe may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult.
 
 
The preliminary reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP core revenue is based on our current information.

We provide non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP operating margin in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Some of the exclusions, such as impairments, may be beyond the control of management. Further, some may be less predictable than revenue derived from our core businesses (the day to day business of selling our products and services). These reasons provide the basis for management's belief that the measures are useful.
 
Our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses, to estimate future core performance and to compensate employees. Since management finds this measure to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing our results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates management's internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

(a) The adjustment for taxes excludes tax benefits that management believes are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability, including a tax benefit of $197M resulted from a tax ruling obtained from Singapore that allows Keysight to amortize the value of the intellectual property acquired from Agilent in the separation for the quarter and year ended October 31, 2015. For the year ended October 31, 2016 and 2015, management uses a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 17%, which we believe to be indicative of on-going operations.
   
Historical amounts are reclassified to conform with current presentation.
 
We provide non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share amounts in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude, primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Some of the exclusions, such as impairments, may be beyond the control of management. Further, some may be less predictable than revenue derived from our core businesses (the day to day business of selling our products and services). These reasons provide the basis for management's belief that the measures are useful.
 

Intangible amortization includes non-cash intangible amortization recognized in connection with acquisitions.
 
Share-based compensation includes expense for all share-based payment awards made to our employees and directors including employee stock option awards, restricted stock units, employee stock purchases made under our employee stock purchase plan ("ESPP") and performance share awards granted to selected members of our senior management under the long-term performance plan ("LTPP") based on estimated fair values.
 
Acquisition and Integration costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect a business combination that have been expensed during the period. Such acquisition costs may include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. Such integration costs may include expenses directly related to integration of business and facility operations, information technology systems and infrastructure and other employee-related costs.
 
Acquisition-related fair value adjustments includes business combination accounting effects from the acquisition including reduction in revenue and increase in cost of sales due to the respective estimated fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and inventory.
 
Separation and related costs include all incremental expenses incurred in order to effect the separation of Keysight from Agilent, including the cost of new hires specifically required to operate two separate companies. The intent is to only include in non-GAAP expenses what would not have been incurred if we had no plan to spin-off. These costs include, among other things, branding, legal, accounting and other advisory fees and other costs to separate and transition from Agilent.
 
Restructuring and related costs include incremental expenses incurred in the period associated with publicly announced major restructuring programs, usually aimed at material changes in business and/or cost structure. Such costs may include one-time termination benefits, asset impairments, facility-related costs and contract termination fees. and other one time reorganization costs.
 
Management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses, to estimate future core performance and to compensate employees. Since management finds this measure to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing our results "through the eyes" of management in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates management's internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
 
Management recognizes that items such as amortization of intangibles, restructuring charges etc. can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of special items, investors should understand that the excluded items are actual expenses that may impact the cash available to us for other uses. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the company's profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) rely upon the GAAP income statement. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the company's performance.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
 
The preliminary reconciliation from GAAP to Non-GAAP net income is estimated based on our current information.
