ATLANTA, Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC) reported revenue of $581 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, an increase of 24 percent from $470 million in 2010. The second quarter revenue comparison included 6 percentage points of benefit from currency translation.(1)
A number of special items were included in Teradata's results reported under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for the second quarter of 2011, including $28 million of gains from equity investments, which offset $6 million of acquisition-related purchase accounting adjustments; $9 million of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; $10 million of transaction, integration and reorganization costs; and $8 million of stock-based compensation expense. Included in the prior year quarter's results was $6 million of stock-based compensation expense.
Gross margin in the second quarter was 54.4 percent compared to 57.0 percent in the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the special items mentioned above, gross margin was 55.9 percent in the second quarter of 2011, compared to 57.0 percent in the second quarter of 2010.(2) The decrease in non-GAAP gross margin from the strong prior-year period resulted from a significant increase in consulting services revenue which generates lower gross margin than product revenue.
Net income reported for the second quarter of 2011 was $103 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, which compared to net income of $74 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the special items, non-GAAP EPS was $0.60 in the second quarter of 2011, versus $0.46 in the second quarter of 2010.(2)
"Teradata has been executing well on our growth strategies, which led to 21 percent revenue growth in the first half of 2011, as well as the highest number of new customer additions in the last ten years," said Mike Koehler, president and chief executive officer of Teradata Corporation. "Today's market dynamics favor Teradata, as companies strive to work with increasing volumes and complexities of data to gain new insights for competitive advantage. The Teradata team remains relentlessly focused on serving our customers, accelerating growth, and extending our leadership positions in data warehousing and integrated marketing."
Regional Operating Segment Results
Teradata reports its results in three regional operating segments.
Teradata generated $339 million of revenue in its Americas region in the second quarter of 2011, up 21 percent from $281 million in the second quarter of 2010. Currency translation benefited revenue growth in the Americas by 1 percentage point in the second quarter. (1)
Gross margin in the Americas region in the second quarter of 2011 was 57.2 percent, versus 60.9 percent achieved in the second quarter of 2010. The decrease in reported gross margin from the strong prior-year period resulted from a significant increase in consulting services revenue which generates lower gross margin than product revenue, as well as lower product gross margin due to deal mix and increased amortization of capitalized software development cost and acquired technology.
Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA)
Revenue in Teradata's EMEA region in the second quarter of 2011 was $145 million, up 34 percent from $108 million generated in the second quarter of 2010. Currency translation benefited the revenue comparison in the EMEA region by 14 percentage points. (1)
Gross margin in the EMEA region in the second quarter of 2011 was 52.4 percent, versus 52.8 percent reported in the second quarter of 2010, primarily due to the greater proportion of consulting revenue as compared to the prior-year period.
Asia Pacific / Japan (APJ)
Teradata generated $97 million of revenue in its APJ region in the second quarter of 2011, a 20 percent increase from $81 million in the second quarter of 2010. The revenue comparison in the APJ region benefited by 12 percentage points from currency translation.(1)
Gross margin in the APJ region in the second quarter of 2011 was 47.4 percent, compared to 49.4 percent in the second quarter of 2010, as lower services margins were offset in part by a greater proportion of product revenue as compared to the second quarter of 2010.
Second-quarter operating income of $110 million improved from $106 million reported in the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the items previously mentioned, non-GAAP operating income increased 28 percent to $143 million.(2) In the quarter, higher revenue more than offset increased selling, general and administrative expense and research and development expense, as well as the inclusion of Aprimo and Aster Data ongoing operating expenses.
Other Income of a net $27 million in the quarter included the benefit of $28 million of gains from equity investments.
The effective income tax rate in the second quarter of 2011 was 25 percent, which compared to a 30 percent tax rate in the prior-year period. The lower tax rate in the second quarter of 2011 resulted from a non-taxable equity gain related to Aster Data and a lower mix of U.S.-based earnings, compared to the percentage of income generated internationally.
During the second quarter of 2011, Teradata generated $179 million of cash from operating activities, compared to $62 million in the prior-year period. The increase in cash from operating activities was primarily benefited from collections of receivables. Capital expenditures in the second quarter totaled $33 million compared to $23 million in the second quarter of 2010. Teradata generated $146 million of free cash flow (cash from operations less capital expenditures for property and equipment and additions to capitalized software) (3) in the second quarter of 2011, versus $39 million in the same period in 2010.
During the first six months of 2011, Teradata generated $285 million of cash from operating activities, compared to $200 million in the prior-year period. Capital expenditures in the first half of 2011 were $60 million, compared to $44 million in the same period in 2010. During the first six months of 2011, Teradata generated $225 million of free cash flow, versus $156 million in the same period in 2010.
Teradata ended the second quarter of 2011 with $682 million in cash and short-term investments, a $96 million decrease from March 31, 2011, primarily due to acquisition and share repurchase activity. During the quarter Teradata used $38 million to repurchase approximately 720,000 shares.
As of June 30, 2011, Teradata had total debt of $300 million outstanding under a new 5-year term loan. Additionally, Teradata has $300 million of funds available through a pre-arranged credit facility, however had no borrowings related to the credit facility as of June 30, 2011.
Teradata is increasing its expectation for full-year 2011 revenue growth to 18-20 percent. Teradata anticipates that currency fluctuations will benefit the year-over-year revenue comparison by approximately 4 percentage points, based on currency rates on July 29, 2011.
Teradata is increasing its expectation for full-year GAAP earnings per share in 2011 to the $1.91 to $1.99 range and full-year non-GAAP EPS guidance to the 2.20 to $2.28 range.(2) Teradata excludes gains from equity investments, estimated purchase accounting adjustments, amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, as well as transaction, integration and reorganization costs to arrive at non-GAAP earnings per share.

1. The impact of currency is determined by calculating the prior-period results using the current-year monthly average currency rates. See the foreign currency schedule on the Investor Relations page of the company's web site www.teradata.com/investor.
2. Teradata reports its results in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States, or GAAP. However, as described below, the company believes that certain non-GAAP measures (such as non-GAAP EPS, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP gross margin which exclude certain items as well as free cash flow) are useful for investors. Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as substitutes for or superior to results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
The following tables reconcile Teradata's actual and projected results and earnings per diluted share, or EPS, under GAAP to the company's actual and projected non-GAAP results and EPS for the periods presented, which exclude certain items. Our management regularly uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, such as EPS, gross margin and operating income, excluding certain items internally, to understand, manage and evaluate our business and support operating decisions. The company believes such non-GAAP financial measures (1) provide useful information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of the company's ongoing operations, (2) are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations and results, that may be more easily compared to peer companies and allows investors a view to the company's operating results during the integration period of the acquisitions of Aprimo and Aster Data, (3) provide useful information to management and investors regarding present and future business trends, and (4) provide consistency and comparability with past reports and projections of future results.
(a) Earnings Per Share Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(b) Gross Margin Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
(c) Operating Income Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Measures
3. As described above, the company believes that free cash flow is a useful non-GAAP measure for investors. Teradata defines free cash flow as cash provided/used by operating activities less capital expenditures for property and equipment, and additions to capitalized software. Free cash flow does not have a uniform definition under GAAP and therefore, Teradata's definition may differ from other companies' definitions of this measure. Teradata's management uses free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the company and believes it is useful for investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash generated after capital expenditures for, among other things, investment in the company's existing businesses, strategic acquisitions, strengthening the company's balance sheet, repurchase of company stock and repayment of the company's debt obligations, if any. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since there may be other nondiscretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. This non-GAAP measure is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for or superior to results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.
