Verint Announces Third Quarter Results

MELVILLE, N.Y. — (BUSINESS WIRE) —

Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNT), a global leader in Actionable Intelligence® solutions and value-added services, today announced results for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2015.

“Year-to-date non-GAAP revenue increased 5% on a constant currency basis, lower than our long-term target of double digit growth. We are pleased to have received several large orders in both enterprise intelligence and security intelligence, but continue to see longer customer approval cycles and are making adjustments to our go-to-market strategy to reduce our dependency on large projects,” said Dan Bodner, CEO and President.

Bodner continued, “We are also pleased with our strong third quarter non-GAAP operating margins of 22.1% driving adjusted EBITDA of $69 million(1). Going forward, we expect margins to continue to expand with earnings growing faster than revenue.”

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release and the accompanying tables include non-GAAP financial measures. For a description of these non-GAAP financial measures, including the reasons management uses each measure, and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures presented for completed periods to the most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, please see Tables 2, 3 and 6 as well as “Supplemental Information About Non-GAAP Financial Measures” at the end of this press release.

Our non-GAAP outlook does not include the potential impact of any business acquisitions that may occur after the date hereof, and, unless otherwise specified, reflects foreign currency exchange rates approximately consistent with current rates.

We are not providing a quantitative reconciliation of our non-GAAP outlook to the corresponding GAAP information because the GAAP measures that we exclude from our non-GAAP outlook, other than those described below, are difficult to predict and are primarily dependent on future uncertainties. The more significant GAAP measures excluded from our non-GAAP outlook for which we do not prepare a reconcilable GAAP forecast include revenue adjustments related to acquisitions, stock-based compensation, and income taxes.

Our non-GAAP outlook for the year ending January 31, 2016 excludes the following known GAAP measures:

  • Amortization of intangible assets – approximately $79 million; and
  • Amortization of discount on convertible notes – approximately $10 million.

(1) Non-GAAP revenue for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2015 at constant currency is calculated by translating current-periods foreign currency revenue into U.S. dollars using average foreign currency exchange rates for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2014 rather than actual current-periods foreign currency exchange rates.

(2) Forecasted non-GAAP revenue for the year ending January 31, 2016 is calculated by converting anticipated future foreign currency revenue into U.S. dollars using foreign currency exchange rates in effect on or about December 2, 2015.

(3) Non-GAAP revenue guidance for the year ending January 31, 2016 at constant currency is calculated by converting actual and forecasted foreign currency revenue using average foreign currency exchange rates for the year ended January 31, 2015 rather than actual or current foreign currency exchange rates for the year ending January 31, 2016.

Supplemental Information About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures, consisting of non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP operating income and operating margin, non-GAAP other income (expense), net, non-GAAP provision (benefit) for income taxes, non-GAAP net income attributable to Verint Systems Inc., non-GAAP net income per common share attributable to Verint Systems Inc., adjusted EBITDA, net debt, and constant currency measures. Tables 2 and 3 include a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure for completed periods presented in this press release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures we present have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP, and these non-GAAP financial measures should only be used to evaluate our results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures do not represent discretionary cash available to us to invest in the growth of our business, and we may in the future incur expenses similar to or in addition to the adjustments made in these non-GAAP financial measures.

We believe that the non-GAAP financial measures we present provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating results primarily because they exclude certain non-cash charges or items that we do not believe are reflective of our ongoing operating results when budgeting, planning and forecasting, determining compensation, and when assessing the performance of our business with our individual operating segments or our senior management. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate the comparison by management and investors of results between periods and among our peer companies. However, those companies may calculate similar non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.

Adjustments to Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Revenue adjustments related to acquisitions. We exclude from our non-GAAP revenue the impact of fair value adjustments required under GAAP relating to acquired customer support contracts which would have otherwise been recognized on a standalone basis. We exclude these adjustments from our non-GAAP financial measures because these are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

Amortization of acquired technology and other acquired intangible assets. When we acquire an entity, we are required under GAAP to record the fair values of the intangible assets of the acquired entity and amortize those assets over their useful lives. We exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets, including acquired technology, from our non-GAAP financial measures. These expenses are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are non-cash charges. In addition, these amounts are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and size of acquisitions. Thus, we also exclude these amounts to provide better comparability of pre- and post-acquisition operating results.

Stock-based compensation expenses. We exclude stock-based compensation expenses related to stock options, restricted stock awards and units, stock bonus programs, bonus share programs and phantom stock from our non-GAAP financial measures. These expenses are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are primarily non-cash charges.

Other adjustments. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures legal fees, other professional fees, integration expenses, and certain other expenses associated with acquisitions, whether or not consummated, and certain extraordinary transactions, including reorganizations, restructurings, and asset impairment charges. Also excluded are changes in the fair value of contingent consideration liabilities associated with business combinations. These expenses are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that they are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

Unrealized gains and losses on certain derivatives, net. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures unrealized gains and losses on certain foreign currency derivatives which are not designated as hedges under accounting guidance. We exclude unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency derivatives that serve as economic hedges against variability in the cash flows of recognized assets or liabilities, or of forecasted transactions. These contracts, if designated as hedges under accounting guidance, would be considered “cash flow” hedges. These unrealized gains and losses are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because they are non-cash transactions which are highly variable from period to period and which we believe are not reflective of our ongoing operations. Upon settlement of these foreign currency derivatives, any realized gain or loss is included in our non-GAAP financial measures.

Effective in the year ending January 31, 2016, our non-GAAP financial measures include unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency derivatives that serve as economic hedges against exposures to changes in the fair values of recognized assets or liabilities. These contracts, if designated as hedges under accounting guidance, would be considered “fair value” hedges. For periods ended prior to February 1, 2015, these unrealized gains and losses were excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures. For our non-GAAP financial measures, this change better aligns the recognition of gains and losses on the re-measurement of foreign currency-denominated assets and liabilities with the recognition of offsetting gains and losses (whether realized or unrealized) on foreign currency derivatives which are executed to help mitigate re-measurement risk. Had this change been applied to our non-GAAP financial measures for the year ended January 31, 2015, non-GAAP net income would have increased by $0.4 million, consisting of increases (decreases) of $(0.7) million, $0.9 million, $1.5 million, and $(1.3) million for the three months ended April 30, 2014, July 31, 2014, October 31, 2014, and January 31, 2015, respectively.

Losses on early retirements of debt. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures losses on early retirements of debt attributable to refinancing or repaying our debt because we believe they are not reflective of our ongoing operations.

Amortization of convertible note discount. Under GAAP, certain convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash upon conversion are required to be bifurcated into separate liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components in a manner that reflects the issuer’s non-convertible debt borrowing rate. As a result, for GAAP purposes, we are required to recognize imputed interest expense in amounts significantly in excess of the coupon rate on our $400.0 million of 1.50% convertible notes. The difference between the imputed interest expense and the coupon interest expense is excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures because we believe that this non-cash expense is not reflective of ongoing operations.

Non-cash tax adjustments. We exclude from our non-GAAP financial measures non-cash tax adjustments, which represent the difference between the amount of taxes we expect to pay related to current year income, and our GAAP tax provision on an annual basis. On a quarterly basis, this adjustment reflects our expected annual effective tax rate on a cash basis.

Supplemental Information About Constant Currency

Because we operate on a global basis and transact business in many currencies, fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates can affect our consolidated U.S. dollar operating results. To facilitate the assessment of our performance excluding the effect of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations, we calculate our non-GAAP revenue, cost of revenue, and operating expenses on both an as-reported basis and a constant currency basis, allowing for comparison of results between periods as if foreign currency exchange rates had remained constant. We perform our constant currency calculations by translating current-period foreign currency revenue and expenses into U.S. dollars using prior-period average foreign currency exchange rates or hedge rates, as applicable, rather than current period exchange rates.

Unless otherwise indicated, our financial outlook for revenue, operating margin, and diluted earnings per share, which is provided on a non-GAAP basis, reflects foreign currency exchange rates approximately consistent with rates in effect when the outlook is provided. Unless otherwise indicated, percentage growth rates in revenue provided in our financial outlook are expressed on a constant currency basis, and are calculated by translating foreign currency revenue for the guidance period into U.S. dollars using prior-period average foreign currency exchange rates, and comparing the result to actual revenue reported for the prior period. We believe that constant currency growth rates, which exclude the impact of foreign currency exchange rate changes, facilitate the assessment of underlying business trends.

We also incur foreign exchange gains and losses resulting from the revaluation and settlement of monetary assets and liabilities that are denominated in currencies other than the entity’s functional currency. We periodically report our historical non-GAAP diluted net income per share both inclusive and exclusive of these net foreign exchange gains or losses. Our financial outlook for diluted earnings per share includes net foreign exchange gains or losses incurred to date but does not include potential future gains or losses.
