CA Technologies Reports Q’ 3, FY 2016 Results

4th February 2016 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

CA Technologies-logoMumbai, February 4, 2016 – CA Technologies (NASDAQ:CA) today reported financial results for its third quarter fiscal 2016, which ended December 31, 2015.

CA Technologies Chief Executive Officer Mike Gregoire said, “I am pleased to report that total new sales, revenue, earnings and cash flow from operations outperformed our expectations. Third quarter results benefited from the combination of strong performance from recent acquisitions, a higher level of renewal bookings growth, and better sales execution, relative to our expectations. It shows that our strategy is beginning to gather momentum. I am really happy to see that our acquisitions are beginning to deliver on their potential.”

“We feel that we are near an inflection point in the business. We stand by our fiscal 2016 and medium-term guidance. As we said in November, we expect our upcoming fiscal 2017 to be the year CA crosses into sustained, albeit initially modest, revenue growth. That said, we know there is still work to be done to grow at a rate that is representative of CA’s true potential,” he added.

“As the pendulum swings towards the desire to reduce complexity and consolidate around full suite solutions providers who can operate globally at scale, customers are finding CA and its broad portfolio to be more attractive than point product vendors. We are investing in innovation that matters to ensure that CA solutions are meaningful, compelling and can drive growth for years to come, while maintaining rigorous fiscal and execution discipline.”

The company reported decline in Total revenue primarily as a result of an unfavorable foreign exchange effect of $51 million. Its fiscal 2016 acquisitions of Rally Software Development Corp. and Xceedium, Inc., contributed approximately 3 points of revenue growth for the quarter.
Total bookings grew primarily due to an increase in Mainframe Solutions renewals and bookings related to our acquisitions of Rally and Xceedium. The Company executed a total of 18 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $593 million. During the third quarter of fiscal 2015, the Company executed a total of 18 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $394 million.
The weighted average duration of subscription and maintenance bookings for the quarter was 3.76 years, compared with 3.29 years for the same period in fiscal 2015.
GAAP and Non-GAAP third quarter operating expenses decreased primarily as a result of a favorable foreign exchange effect and a decrease in non-acquisition personnel-related costs, partially offset by costs from our acquisitions of Rally and Xceedium.
GAAP EPS in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was positively impacted by $0.05 from a decrease in the GAAP effective tax rate and by $0.02 from the accelerated share repurchase that was completed in November 2015. These items were partially offset by a negative $0.05 impact from unfavorable foreign exchange.
Non-GAAP EPS in the third quarter of fiscal 2016 was negatively affected by $0.06 from unfavorable foreign exchange and by $0.03 due to an increase in the Non-GAAP effective tax rate. These items were partially offset by a $0.02 increase from the accelerated share repurchase.
