Red Hat Reports First Quarter Results

Total revenue for the quarter was $174.4 million, an increase of 11% from the year ago quarter

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2010 first quarter ended May 31, 2009.

Total revenue for the quarter was $174.4 million, an increase of 11% from the year ago quarter. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $148.8 million, up 14% year-over-year.

“We are pleased to report better than expected revenue and EPS results in Q1,” stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. “Red Hat’s growth is driven in part by our ability to help enterprise customers save money in a challenging IT spending environment. Our open source solutions drive new capabilities, efficiencies and functionality into the mission critical infrastructure of our customers.”

GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $25.1 million, or a 14.4% operating margin. After adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $40.7 million, up 19% year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 23.4%, up 160 basis points from the year ago quarter.

Net income for the quarter was $18.5 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared with $17.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $28.7 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, after adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses as detailed in the tables below, as compared to $26.0 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter.

Operating cash flow totaled $61.2 million, as compared to $63.4 million in the year ago quarter. At quarter end, the company’s total deferred revenue balance was $567.3 million, an increase of 15% on a year-over-year basis. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of May 31, 2009 were $884.5 million.

“While we remain focused on managing discretionary costs and improving efficiencies, we also continue to invest in growth opportunities in middleware, virtualization and cloud computing,” stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat. “These efforts combined with solid top line growth contributed to non-GAAP operating income growth of 19% year-over-year and healthy cash flow. In the quarter, we repurchased $47 million of common stock while strengthening our balance sheet with a 5% sequential increase in cash and investments. On a year-over-year basis, we have reduced our diluted shares outstanding by approximately 11%.”

Other highlights include the following:

  • We announced our JBoss Open Choice strategy, which is intended to address the evolving needs of application developers and the changing market by embracing a variety of programming models, frameworks and languages. Executing on this strategy, Red Hat now has application platform solutions for common Java application workloads; from simple web applications, to light and rich Java applications, to Java Enterprise Edition (EE) based applications. Our new JBoss platforms support a variety of popular programming models including Spring Framework, Seam and Google Web Toolkit.
  • Delivering on Red Hat’s virtualization strategy and roadmap, the company announced the beta releases of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization portfolio of products, all of which are integrated with our KVM hypervisor. Included in the beta release is a new management product for the management of server virtualization. The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization portfolio will leverage Red Hat’s broad certified ecosystem and will offer flexibility, operational choice and efficiency to customers.

Additional information on Red Hat's reported results, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted results, are included in the financial tables below. A live webcast of Red Hat's results will begin at 5:00 pm ET today and can be accessed by the general public at Red Hat's investor relations website at http://investors.redhat.com.
