Amdocs Limited Reports Quarterly Revenue of $822 Million, Up 1.2% YoY

Delivers Record Diluted non-GAAP EPS of $2.71 for Fiscal 2012, up 16% YoY, and Diluted GAAP EPS of $2.31

ST. LOUIS, Nov. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- 

Key highlights:

  • The board of directors has authorized a share repurchase plan allowing the repurchase of up to $500 million of ordinary shares at the company's discretion; this plan has no expiration date and is in addition to the current authorization program, which, as of September 30, 2012, provided up to $203 million of remaining repurchase authority through February 2013; the board of directors also approved $0.13 per share quarterly cash dividend to be paid on January 18, 2013
  • Fourth fiscal quarter revenue of $822 million, compared to the $815-$835 million guidance range. Foreign currency movements negatively affected revenue by approximately $1 million relative to the third fiscal quarter of 2012
  • Fourth fiscal quarter non-GAAP operating income of $137 million; non-GAAP operating margin of 16.6%; GAAP operating income of $114 million
  • Fourth fiscal quarter diluted non-GAAP EPS of $0.70, compared to the $0.66-$0.72 guidance range, excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs and equity-based compensation expense, net of related tax effects
  • Diluted GAAP EPS of $0.60 for the fourth fiscal quarter, compared to the $0.54-$0.62 guidance range
  • Free cash flow of $109 million for the fourth fiscal quarter
  • Twelve-month backlog of $2.79 billion at the end of the fourth fiscal quarter, up $30 million from the end of the third fiscal quarter of 2012
  • Repurchased $106 million of ordinary shares during the fourth fiscal quarter
  • First quarter fiscal 2013 guidance: Expected revenue of approximately $810-$840 million and diluted non-GAAP EPS of $0.68-$0.74, excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition-related costs and approximately $0.06-$0.07 per share of equity-based compensation expense, net of related tax effects. Diluted GAAP EPS is expected to be approximately $0.56-$0.64
  • Fiscal 2013 guidance: Expected revenue growth of 2-5% and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share growth of roughly 5-8%, including the impact of anticipated share repurchase activity over the course of the fiscal year

Amdocs Limited (NYSE: DOX) today reported that for its fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2012, revenue was $822.1 million, up 1.6% sequentially from the third fiscal quarter of 2012 and up 1.2% as compared to last year's fourth fiscal quarter. Net income on a non-GAAP basis was $115.7 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $111.2 million, or $0.62 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. Non-GAAP net income excludes amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs and equity-based compensation expenses of $17.7 million, net of related tax effects, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 and excludes such amortization and other acquisition related costs and equity-based compensation expenses of $23.8 million, net of related tax effects, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The Company's GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $98.0 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $87.4 million, or $0.49 per diluted share, in the prior year's fourth fiscal quarter. 

"We concluded fiscal 2012 with another strong quarter, reflecting ongoing stabilization at AT&T, double-digit growth in our emerging markets and consistent operating margin execution.  Underscoring our commitment to returning excess cash, we repurchased an additional $106 million of our ordinary shares in the fourth fiscal quarter, and, as of September 30, 2012, we had acquired a total of 25% of our shares that were outstanding in April 2010. Overall, as a result of good new sales execution, a stable operating margin and our repurchase activity, we grew non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by 16% in fiscal 2012," said Eli Gelman, chief executive officer of Amdocs Management Limited.

Gelman continued, "North American demand trends improved in the fourth quarter, with the region returning to sequential growth.  We believe that announced M&A activity among operators in North America may drive long-term opportunity for Amdocs; however, it also adds some uncertainty to our 2013 outlook as consummation of such deals remains subject to contingencies.  Emerging markets continued to be a source of strength for year-over-year growth and we expect this trend to continue in 2013.  We also achieved stable activity levels in Europe in the fourth quarter to cap a strong fiscal 2012 in the region, although we remain aware of the challenging economic conditions heading in to 2013."

Gelman concluded, "In North America, we are delighted to announce today that Sprint has agreed to expand and extend its managed services relationship with Amdocs through 2021, including the addition of its Virgin Mobile-branded subscribers to the Amdocs platform.  This agreement brings us good long-term visibility with one of our largest customers and we believe represents a true 'win-win' outcome for both Sprint and Amdocs. Similarly, agreements with new and existing customers, such as Globe in the Philippines, TIM Brasil in Latin America and, just announced today, VimpelCom in Russia, should provide for further growth in the emerging markets in fiscal 2013. While the year ahead carries macroeconomic and industry specific risks, we believe we are competitively well positioned to achieve sustained growth in 2013."

Financial Discussion of Fourth Fiscal Quarter Results

Free cash flow was $109 million for the quarter, comprised of cash flow from operations of $152 million less $43 million in net capital expenditures and other.

Twelve-month backlog, which includes anticipated revenue related to contracts, estimated revenue from managed services contracts, letters of intent, maintenance and estimated on-going support activities, was $2.79 billion at the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. 

Fiscal Year 2012 Results

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, revenue increased by 2.2% to $3.2 billion. Fiscal 2012 net income on a non-GAAP basis was $460.0 million, or $2.71 per diluted share (excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs, gain on sale of investment and equity-based compensation expenses of $68.6 million, net of related tax effects), compared to non-GAAP net income of $434.6  million, or $2.33 per diluted share, in fiscal 2011 (excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs and equity-based compensation expenses of $87.9 million, net of related tax effects). The Company's GAAP net income in fiscal 2012 was $391.4 million, or $2.31 per diluted share, compared to GAAP net income of $346.7 million, or $1.86 per diluted share, in fiscal 2011.

Financial Outlook

Amdocs expects that revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 will be approximately $810-$840 million. Diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis for the first fiscal quarter are expected to be $0.68-$0.74, excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition-related costs and approximately $0.06-$0.07 per share of equity-based compensation expense, net of related tax effects. Amdocs estimates GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first fiscal quarter will be $0.56-$0.64.

Quarterly Cash Dividend Program

On November 6, 2012, the Board approved the quarterly cash dividend payment and set December 31, 2012 as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to receive the dividend, which is payable on January 18, 2013.

Conference Call Details

Amdocs will host a conference call on November 6, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time to discuss the Company's fourth fiscal quarter results. The call will be carried live on the Internet via the Amdocs website, www.amdocs.com.  

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This release includes non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and other non-GAAP financial measures, including free cash flow, non-GAAP cost of service, non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP interest and other income (expense), net, non-GAAP income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share growth. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs;
  • gain on sale of investment;
  • equity-based compensation expense; and
  • tax effects related to the above.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Amdocs believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Amdocs' results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Amdocs' results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Amdocs believes that the presentation of non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and other financial measures, including free cash flow, non-GAAP cost of service, non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP selling, general and administrative, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP income taxes, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share growth when shown in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures, provides useful information to investors and management regarding financial and business trends relating to its financial condition and results of operations, as well as the net amount of cash generated by its business operations after taking into account capital spending required to maintain or expand the business.

For its internal budgeting process and in monitoring the results of the business, Amdocs' management uses financial statements that do not include amortization of purchased intangible assets and other acquisition related costs, gain on sale of investment, equity-based compensation expense and related tax effects. Amdocs' management also uses the foregoing non-GAAP financial measures, in addition to the corresponding GAAP measures, in reviewing the financial results of Amdocs. In addition, Amdocs believes that significant groups of investors exclude these items in reviewing its results and those of its competitors, because the amounts of the items between companies can vary greatly depending on the assumptions used by an individual company in determining the amounts of the items.

Amdocs further believes that, where the adjustments used in calculating non-GAAP diluted earnings per share are based on specific, identified amounts that impact different line items in the Consolidated Statements of Income (including cost of service, research and development, selling, general and administrative, operating income, interest and other income (expense), net, income taxes and net income), it is useful to investors to understand how these specific line items in the Consolidated Statements of Income are affected by these adjustments.

All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions.
