“We are pleased with our performance in both 2012 and against the three-year plan we developed for our business following our 2010 merger with Symyx. We achieved both market momentum and acknowledgment of our position as the leading provider of scientific innovation lifecycle management software,” said Max Carnecchia, President and CEO. “Performance in the fourth quarter of 2012 was strong as our revenues grew 16% over the prior year. In addition, we completed and are integrating three acquisitions key to our strategy of optimizing the lab-to-market value chain. We remain enthusiastic about the market opportunity in front of us and in our ability to continue to grow orders, revenue and profits both organically and inorganically in 2013.”

Recent Business Highlights:

  • Completed three acquisitions that add important domain expertise and technology capabilities that further our strategy to optimize the innovation lifecycle from research through commercialization.
    • HEOS, a secure Cloud-based information management workspace for scientific collaboration, accelerates and streamlines collaborative drug-discovery.
    • Aegis Analytical Corporation (Aegis), the leading provider of process management informatics software, further expands the footprint in downstream operation with solutions that help aggregate, contextualize and analyze manufacturing, quality and product development data.
    • Vialis AG, a leading systems integrator with deep experience implementing and supporting paperless laboratory solutions, further strengthening Accelrys' position in the laboratory informatics software market.
  • Delivered new product releases in the core product lines and significantly progressed the integration roadmap for the solutions acquired into the portfolio, including:
    • New Accelrys Enterprise Platform (AEP), the industry's first scientifically aware, service-oriented architecture (SOA) that enables integration and deployment of broad scientific solutions (Platform)
    • New biology capabilities from screening through pre-clinical development in the Accelrys Electronic Laboratory Notebook (Enterprise Lab Management)
    • New Process Management and Compliance suite, a unified approach to product development and process management which combines the capabilities of the Accelrys ELN, Accelrys Lab Execution System (LES), Accelrys Electronic Batch Records (EBR) and the Accelrys Enterprise Platform (Enterprise Lab Management)
    • New integration between Accelrys Materials Studio and AEP, enabling computational scientists to collaborate across the enterprise; deepened biotherapeutics capabilities in Accelrys Discovery Studio (Modeling and Simulation)

Non-GAAP results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 exclude the impact of business combination activities associated with the acquisitions of Aegis on October 23, 2012 and Contur Industry Holding AB and Contur Software AB (collectively, “Contur”) and VelQuest Corporation (“VelQuest”), both in 2011, and the merger with Symyx Technologies, Inc. (“Symyx”) in 2010, and other nonrecurring items.

Non-GAAP revenue, non-GAAP operating income, and non-GAAP net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 include fair value adjustments to deferred revenue ($3.3 million and $11.8 million, respectively). Non-GAAP operating income for such three and twelve-month periods also excludes stock-based compensation expense ($2.5 million and $8.1 million, respectively), business consolidation, transaction and restructuring costs ($6.6 million and $7.8 million, respectively) and purchased intangible asset amortization ($5.2 million and $17.8 million, respectively), offset by an adjustment to include acquisition-related cost of revenue related to VelQuest non-GAAP revenue recognized during such periods ($0.8 million and $1.9 million, respectively). Non-GAAP net income for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2012 also excludes additional purchased intangible asset amortization ($0.4 million and $1.7 million, respectively) offset by removing the impact of the amortization of note receivable discount related to our promissory note receivable from Intermolecular, Inc. (“Intermolecular”) ($0.3 million and $0.9 million, respectively). In addition to the aforementioned items, non-GAAP net income for the year ended December 31, 2012 includes fair value adjustments to deferred royalty income of $0.6 million and excludes $2.1 million in other non-operating income resulting from our real estate related activities.

Calendar Year 2013 Outlook

For the year ending December 31, 2013, the Company expects non-GAAP revenue to be between $185 and $190 million, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be between $0.36 and $0.39 per diluted share on fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 56.6 million and using an effective tax rate of 40%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release describes financial measures for revenue, operating income, net income, net income per diluted share and free cash flow that exclude deferred revenue fair value adjustments, acquisition-related cost of revenue, business consolidation, transaction and restructuring costs, stock-based compensation expense, purchased intangible asset amortization, royalty income fair value adjustments, amortization of note receivable discount, gain on sale of real estate, gain on sale of equity investments, sale of intangible assets, other non-operating expense and income tax adjustments. These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company's operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company's ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors utilize these measures, in addition to GAAP measures, when evaluating and comparing the Company's operating performance against internal financial forecasts and budgets. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded by the Company from its non-GAAP financial measures please refer to the Form 8-K regarding this release that was furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
