Serena Software Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2006 Results
GAAP EPS of $0.17; Non-GAAP EPS of $0.32 up 52% year over year
San Mateo, CA May 19, 2005 Serena Software (NASDAQ: SRNA), the largest company solely focused on managing change in the IT environment, announced today results for the first quarter ending April 30, 2005. Total revenue computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") of $61.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2006 represented an 82% increase over the first quarter of fiscal 2005. Total revenue on a non-GAAP basis for the first quarter was $62.8 million. Non-GAAP revenue differs from GAAP revenue because it includes a $1.5 million addback of maintenance revenue written down in the Merant acquisition purchase accounting. Software license revenue was $22.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2006, up 40% over the same quarter a year ago. On a GAAP basis, maintenance revenue increased to $33.0 million for the first quarter, up 123% year over year and service revenues were $6.1 million. License revenue for the first quarter from software change management was 88% of total license revenue, with 68% of total license revenue coming from distributed systems platforms.
Net income and net income per diluted share computed in accordance with GAAP for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 increased to $8.1 million and $0.17 from a net loss of $(4.3) million and $(0.11) in the same quarter a year ago.
Non-GAAP net income and net income per diluted share for the first quarter of fiscal 2006 increased 63% and 52%, respectively, to $17.0 million and $0.32 from $10.4 million and $0.21 in the first quarter of fiscal 2005.
Diluted earnings per share was calculated taking into consideration the issuance of EITF 04-08, "Effect of Contingently Convertible Debt on Diluted Earnings per Share." Net income was increased for the tax effected debt related costs on an as converted basis by $0.7 million for the quarter ended April 30, 2005. Fully diluted shares were 52.8 million shares for the first quarter of fiscal 2006. In the first quarter this change reduced GAAP and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by $0.02 and $0.06, respectively. Previously reported net income and diluted earnings per share have not been restated based on the effect of EITF 04-08 because its effect would have been anti-dilutive.
Non-GAAP net income and net income per share exclude amortization of intangible assets and charges relating to the purchase accounting adjustments for the acquisition of Merant, including stock-based compensation, the revenue impact of the deferred maintenance write-down to fair value, amortization of acquired technology and other intangible assets, restructuring, acquisition Serena Software Reports First Quarter Results and other charges, and acquired in-process research and development. A reconciliation of non- GAAP to GAAP financial results is included in this press release.
Total cash and equivalents, restricted cash and investments as of April 30, 2005 was $173 million and cash flow from operations for the first quarter was approximately $17 million. Current deferred revenue increased 11% sequentially to $70.3 million and total deferred revenue increased 10% sequentially to $83.6 million. Days sales outstanding on a GAAP basis were 69 days and 68 days on a non-GAAP basis. The Company repurchased 1.5 million shares of its common stock in the open market during the first quarter of fiscal 2006 for an aggregate price of $34.4 million. Additionally, the Companys board of directors authorized the future repurchase of up to 1.5 million shares.
We continue to execute well in what was a more challenging IT spending environment in the first quarter than we anticipated", said Mark Woodward, President and CEO. I am pleased that we are able to exceed earnings expectations by expanding targeted operating margins through improved productivity. I believe we remain well positioned as a market leader and will continue to focus on both revenue growth and margin expansion going forward.
The Company also announced its financial outlook for the second quarter of fiscal 2006. Second quarter total revenues on a GAAP basis are expected to be in the range of $64 million to $66 million and non-GAAP net income per fully diluted share is expected to be between $0.32 and $0.33. GAAP net income per fully diluted share is expected to be between $0.19 and $0.20. Diluted earnings per share was calculated taking into consideration the issuance of EITF 04-08, "Effect of Contingently Convertible Debt on Diluted Earnings per Share."

GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation
Serena management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its product, maintenance and services operations and certain costs of these operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. Such measures include non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share. Collectively, we refer to these non-GAAP financial measures as "non-GAAP measures." We have outlined below the type and scope of the amounts excluded in calculating these non-GAAP measures and the limitations on the use of these non-GAAP measures as a result of these exclusions. These non-GAAP measures are not an alternative to revenue or net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors in our securities should not rely on the use of these non-GAAP measures as a substitute for any GAAP financial measure. In addition, our calculation of these non-GAAP measures may or may not be consistent with that of other companies. We strongly urge investors and potential investors to review the reconciliations to the comparable GAAP financial measures that are included below and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
Serena views non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share as operating performance measures, and as such it believes that the GAAP financial measures most directly comparable to them are revenue, net income and net income per share, respectively. Non-GAAP net income and net income per share differ from comparable GAAP measures in that they exclude the amortization of intangible assets and charges relating to the purchase accounting adjustments for the acquisition of Merant, including the revenue impact of the deferred maintenance write-down to fair value, amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets, stock based compensation, restructuring, acquisition and other charges. Non-GAAP revenue differs from GAAP revenue in that it adds back maintenance revenue written down in the Merant acquisition pursuant to purchase accounting.
Management believes it is useful in measuring Serena's operations to exclude amortization of intangible assets and charges relating to the purchase accounting adjustments for the acquisition of Merant because these costs are primarily fixed at the time of the acquisition and generally cannot be changed by management in the short term, or represent significant costs not related to current operations. Non-GAAP revenue and non-GAAP net income are helpful in more clearly reflecting the sales of Serena's products and services, as well as highlighting trends in its core business that may not otherwise be apparent when relying solely on GAAP financial measures, because these non-GAAP measures eliminate from revenue and net income financial items that have less bearing on Serena's operating performance. The Merant acquisition was a particularly large acquisition in Serena's history, and management believes the impact of charges relating to the acquisition can make it more difficult to evaluate the trends of Serena's underlying business, including the performance of its products, maintenance and services operations. Serena believes it is useful to investors to see how management separates initial transaction costs from its view of Serena's current and future continuing operations. Management also believes that these non GAAP measures facilitate comparison of the current operating performance of the combined Serena and Merant operations to the past performance of Serena and Merant as separate companies, as it permits the comparison of operating results of the separate companies, viewed together, to Serena's current operating Serena Software Reports First Quarter Results results without the impact of charges relating to the acquisition process rather than the underlying operations of the two companies.
Serena's management uses these non-GAAP measures as supplemental financial measures to evaluate the performance of Serena's business that, viewed with Serena's GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations, it believes provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting its business than GAAP results alone. Serena uses these measures to make forecasting, budgeting and operating decisions such as establishment of operating targets, budgets and bonus compensation.
Serena communicates these non-GAAP measures to the public through its earnings releases because we understand that they are financial measures commonly used by analysts that cover our industry and our investor base to evaluate our performance. For example, based on communications with analysts and investors, Serena understands that some analysts and investors may value companies based on a measure of discounted future cash flows and that Serena's non-GAAP financial measures can be useful to such analysts in performing such valuations. Management believes that presenting these non-GAAP measures provides investors and analysts with an additional base line for assessing the future earnings potential of Serena. Serena prefers to allow investors to have these supplemental measures since, with reconciliation to GAAP, they may provide additional insight into its financial results.
Non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to look at GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance. For example, amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets are important to consider because they may represent initial expenditures that under GAAP are reported across future fiscal periods. Stock based compensation and restructuring and acquisition related charges are important because they may represent obligations of Serena that should be considered. All of these metrics are important to financial performance generally. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures contained within this press release with their most directly comparable GAAP financial results.
Though Serena management finds its non-GAAP measures useful in evaluating the performance of its business, its reliance on these measures is limited because items excluded from such measures often have a material effect on its revenue, net income and net income per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Management compensates for the abovedescribed limitations of using a non-GAAP measure by using these non-GAAP measures to supplement Serena's GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business.
A conference call to discuss the preliminary results is scheduled for 2:00 PM Pacific time today and may be accessed live via the Internet at www.companyboardroom.com or www.serena.com/Q106results. A replay of the call will be available through June 2, 2005 by dialing 800-340-2806 or 303-745-7501.
