Repurchases will be made in compliance with all SEC rules and other legal requirements and will be made in part under a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which permits stock repurchases when the Company might otherwise be precluded from doing so.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Actuate management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various performance measures. In addition to our GAAP results, we also consider adjusted net income, which we refer to as non-GAAP net income. We further consider various components of non-GAAP net income such as non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense. Non-GAAP net income is generally based on the revenues of our product, maintenance and services business operations and the costs of those operations, such as cost of revenue, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses, that management considers in evaluating our ongoing core operating performance. Non-GAAP net income consists of net income excluding amortization of intangible assets, equity plan-related compensation expenses, acquisition related expenses, restructuring charges, asset impairment costs, one-time termination costs, one-time professional services fees, facilities adjustments, foreign currency exchange gains and losses related to the revaluation of monetary assets and liabilities and other one-time charges and gains which management does not consider reflective of our core operating business. Non-GAAP net income also includes an adjustment to add back revenue that could not be recognized due to the impact of purchase accounting on the acquired Quiterian revenue contracts. Intangible assets consist primarily of purchased technology, in-process research and development, trade names, customer relationships, employment agreements and other intangible assets issued in connection with acquisitions. Restructuring charges consist of one-time compensation and benefits, excess facilities and asset-related charges resulting from strategic reallocations or reductions of personnel resources. Equity plan-related compensation expenses represent the fair value of all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options recognized during the period. For purposes of comparability across other periods and against other companies in our industry, non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the Company would accrue using a normalized effective tax rate applied to the non-GAAP results. Our non-GAAP earnings per share calculation also includes an adjustment to total outstanding shares to reflect what the share amount would have been if it were calculated using non-GAAP results.

Non-GAAP net income is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, nor presented in accordance with, GAAP. Moreover, it should not be considered as an alternative to net income, operating income, or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities or as a measure of our liquidity. We present non-GAAP net income because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our performance.

Management excludes from non-GAAP net income certain recurring items to facilitate its review of the comparability of the Company's core operating performance on a period-to-period basis because such items are not related to the Company's ongoing core operating performance as viewed by management. Management uses this view of its operating performance for purposes of comparison with its business plan and individual operating budgets and allocations of resources. Additionally, when evaluating potential acquisitions, management excludes the items described above from its consideration of target performance and valuation.

The Company believes that, in general, these items possess one or more of the following characteristics: their magnitude and timing is largely outside of the Company's control; they are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course; they are unusual and the Company does not expect them to occur in the ordinary course of business; they are non-operational, or they are related to non-cash expenses involving stock option grants.

The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is warranted for several reasons:

1) Such non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional analytical tool for understanding the Company's financial performance by excluding the impact of items that may obscure trends in the core operating performance of the business;

2) Since the Company has historically reported non-GAAP results to the investment community, the Company believes the inclusion of non-GAAP numbers provides consistency and enhances investors' ability to compare the Company's performance across financial reporting periods;

3) These non-GAAP financial measures are employed by the Company's management in its own evaluation of performance and are utilized in financial and operational decision making processes, such as budget planning and forecasting;

4) These non-GAAP financial measures facilitate comparisons to the operating results of other companies in our industry, which use similar financial measures to supplement their GAAP results, thus enhancing the perspective of investors who wish to utilize such comparisons in their analysis of the Company's performance.

Set forth below are additional reasons why specific items are adjusted in the Company's non-GAAP financial measures:

a) Amortization charges for purchased technology and other intangible assets are excluded because they are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are significantly impacted by the timing and magnitude of the Company's acquisition transactions. We analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. Generally, the impact of these charges to the Company's net income tends to diminish over time following an acquisition.

b) While stock-based compensation constitutes an ongoing and recurring expense of the Company, it is not an expense that typically requires or will require cash settlement by the Company. We therefore exclude these charges for purposes of evaluating our core performance as well as with respect to evaluating any potential acquisition.

c) Restructuring charges are primarily related to one-time compensation benefits and/or the disposition of excess facilities driven by modifications of business strategy. These costs are excluded because they are inherently variable in size, and are not specifically included in the Company's annual operating plan and related budget due to the rapidly changing facts and circumstances typically associated with such modifications of business strategy.

d) The Company incurred professional services fees related to considerations regarding strategic alternatives. These costs are excluded because the charges are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course. Because these costs are unrelated to the Company’s core operations, they are not included in the Company’s annual operating plan. We analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance;

e) The deferred revenue adjustment relates to our acquisition of Quiterian, which was concluded in October 2012. In accordance with the fair value provisions of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 805, Business Combinations, acquired deferred revenue which was lower than the historical carrying value was recorded on the opening balance sheet. This purchase accounting requirement adversely impacts the Company's reported GAAP revenue primarily for the first twelve months post-acquisition. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the purchase accounting adjustment. The Company believes that this non-GAAP financial adjustment is useful to investors because it allows investors to (a) evaluate the effectiveness of the methodology and information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (b) compare past and future reports of financial results of the Company as the revenue reduction related to acquired deferred revenue will not recur when related terms are renewed in future periods.

f) The facilities adjustment relates to the Company’s new and old headquarters facilities and their related leases. In the second quarter of fiscal 2012 the Company initiated a lease for its new headquarters in the BayCenter facility, which the Company occupied in July 2012. As a result of this new lease, the Company incurred duplicate rent during a portion of the second quarter of fiscal 2012 as it was paying rent on both the old Bridgepointe campus and the new BayCenter facility. The facilities adjustment compensates for this duplicate rent. In addition, as part of the old lease, Actuate was required to restore the facility back to its original condition upon expiration of the lease period. The facilities adjustment serves to add restoration costs on the old headquarters facility back to income.

The facilities adjustment is made for non-GAAP purposes because the underlying costs are non-recurring in nature, are unrelated to the Company's core operations in the ordinary course, and are not included in our annual operating plan and related budget. They are directly impacted by the timing of the Company's lease transactions and we analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. Actuate believes that investors benefit from a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these items because it allows more meaningful comparability of results between periods and enables investors to compare Actuate’s core operating results in different periods without this variability.

g) Foreign currency exchange gains and losses represent the net gain or loss that Actuate has recorded for the impact of currency exchange rate movements on monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies related to the revaluation of these assets and liabilities. Actuate presents non-GAAP financial information excluding foreign exchange gains and losses for several reasons. These foreign currency gains and losses are generally unpredictable and can cause Actuate’s reported results to vary significantly. The magnitude and timing of these gains and losses are largely outside of Actuate’s control because Actuate has not engaged in hedging or taken other actions to reduce the likelihood of incurring a sizeable net gain or loss in future periods. Management believes that these gains and losses are unrelated to the ongoing operation of its business in the ordinary course and are non-operational. Management therefore excludes these items for the purposes of evaluating core performance and they are not specifically included in the Company’s annual operating plans, budgets or management compensation structure. Actuate believes that investors benefit from a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these items because it allows more meaningful comparability of results between periods and enables investors to compare Actuate’s core operating results in different periods without this variability.

h) Other one-time charges are comprised of two distinct components. It includes a one-time write off of approximately $188,000 for expensing of the remaining unamortized costs related to our credit facility with Wells Fargo Foothill ("WFF"). During the second quarter of 2013 we terminated our line of credit with WFF and negotiated a more favorable agreement with U.S. Bank. Also during the second quarter of 2013, as a result of a restructuring, we wrote-off leasehold improvements totaling approximately $155,000 associated with our Toronto, Canada idle facility. These one-time charges are excluded because we analyze and measure our operational results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. Furthermore, such charges are non-recurring in nature, are inherently variable in size and are not included in the Company’s annual operating plan and related budget. These charges are unrelated to the ongoing operations of the business in the ordinary course and unrelated to the Company’s core operations.

i) Asset impairment costs are excluded because they inherently vary in size and are not specifically included in the Company's annual operating plan. Furthermore, asset impairment charges do not typically require any cash outlay and the timing of such impairments is largely outside of the Company's control.

j) Income tax expense is adjusted by the amount of additional expense or benefit that we would accrue if we used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results in the calculation of our tax liability, taking into consideration the Company's long-term tax structure. The Company is using a normalized effective tax rate of 30%. This adjustment is made because the rate remains subject to change based on several factors, including variations over time in the geographic business mix and statutory tax rates. This non-GAAP estimated tax rate is reviewed annually.

k) Acquisition-related costs are costs incurred in concluding our acquisition transactions. These costs are excluded because they are inconsistent in amount and frequency and are directly impacted by the timing and magnitude of the Company’s acquisition transactions. We analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. These acquisition-related costs are unrelated to the Company’s core operations in the ordinary course and are not included in our annual operating plan and budget.

l) One-time termination costs consist of severance payments related to reductions in force. As a consequence of reductions in force, the Company was required to pay out certain severance benefits. In accordance with the applicable FASB Codification, these payments were required to be classified as compensation expense in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations, rather than as a restructuring expense. The Company is excluding these costs in the Non-GAAP financial measures because the charges are not included in the Company’s annual operating plan and related budget. These charges are inherently variable in size and are directly impacted by the timing and magnitude of the Company’s acquisition transactions. We analyze and measure our operational results without these charges when evaluating our core performance. Actuate believes that investors benefit from a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes these items because it allows more meaningful comparability of results between periods and enables investors to compare Actuate’s core operating results in different periods without this variability.

In the future, the Company expects to continue reporting non-GAAP financial measures excluding items described above and the Company expects to continue to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above. Accordingly, exclusion of these and other similar items in our non-GAAP presentation should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring.

As stated above, the Company presents non-GAAP financial measures because it considers them to be important supplemental measures of performance. However, non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the Company's GAAP results. In the future, the Company expects to incur expenses similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above and expects to continue reporting non-GAAP financial measures excluding such items. Some of the limitations in relying on non-GAAP financial measures are:

  • Amortization of intangibles, though not directly affecting our current cash position, represent the loss in value as the technology in our industry evolves, is advanced or is replaced over time. The expense associated with this loss in value is not included in the non-GAAP net income presentation and therefore does not reflect the full economic effect of the ongoing cost of maintaining our current technological position in our competitive industry, which is addressed through our research and development program.
  • The Company may engage in acquisition transactions in the future. Merger and acquisition related charges may therefore continue to be incurred and should not be viewed as non-recurring.
  • The Company's employee equity incentive and employee stock purchase plans are important components of our incentive compensation arrangements and will be reflected as expenses in our GAAP results for the foreseeable future.
  • The Company's income tax expense will be ultimately based on its GAAP taxable income and actual tax rates in effect, which may differ significantly from the rate assumed in our non-GAAP presentation.
  • Other companies, including other companies in our industry, may calculate non-GAAP financial measures differently than we do, limiting their usefulness as a comparative measure.

Pursuant to the requirements of SEC Regulation G, a detailed reconciliation between the Company's GAAP and non-GAAP financial results is provided in this press release and is available in the investor relations section of the Company's web site for a limited time at http://www.actuate.com/investor. Investors are advised to carefully review and consider this information strictly as a supplement to the GAAP results that are contained in this press release and in the Company's SEC filings.

(a) This table contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Such measures are intended to serve as a supplement to the GAAP results presented elsewhere in this press release, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for such GAAP results. See the section entitled Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures in this press release for additional information regarding: the manner in which management uses these non-GAAP financial measures; the economic substance behind management's decision to use such measures; the material limitations associated with use of these non-GAAP financial measures as compared to the use of the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures; the manner in which management compensates for these limitations when using these non-GAAP financial measures; and the substantive reasons why management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors.

 
(b) Amortization of purchased technology acquired in prior acquisitions . Purchased technology is amortized over the estimated life of the underlying asset.
 
(c) Amortization of other intangibles includes identifiable intangible assets including trade names, employment agreements and customer relationships acquired through various acquisition transactions. Other identified intangibles are amortized over the estimated remaining life of the underlying intangibles.
 
(d) Actuate accounts for stock-based compensation expense under the fair value method in accordance with the authoritative guidance issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") related to the measurement and disclosure of stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense is measured at the grant date based on the fair value of the award and is recognized as expense over the requisite service period. For the three months ended December 31, 2013, stock-based expense included approximately (in thousands): $68, $333, $127, and $1,004, related to cost of services revenues, sales and marketing expense, research and development expense and general and administrative expense, respectively.
 
(e) The restructuring expense consists of one-time benefit payments to terminated employees and idle facilities charges driven by modifications in business strategy.
 
(f) Costs associated with our acquisition transactions.
 
(g) The deferred revenue adjustment relates to our prior year acquisition of Quiterian, which was concluded in October of 2012. In accordance with the fair value provisions of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 805, Business Combination, acquired deferred revenues that were recorded on the opening balance sheet, which were lower than the historical carrying value. This purchase accounting requirement adversely impacts the Company's reported GAAP revenue primarily for the first twelve months post-acquisition. In order to provide investors with financial information that facilitates comparison of both historical and future results, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial measures which exclude the impact of the purchase accounting adjustment.
 
(h) Represents severance and benefits associated with one-time termination of Actuate employees.
 
(i) Represents a one-time write off totaling approximately $188,000 for the remaining unamortized costs related to our credit facility as we terminated our Line of Credit agreement with Wells Fargo Foothill ("WFF") and re-negotiated a more favorable agreement with U.S. Bank in the second quarter of 2013. Also during the second quarter of 2013, we wrote-off leasehold improvements totaling approximately $155,000 associated with our Toronto, Canada idle facility.
 
(j) During the second quarter of 2013, the Company incurred professional services fees related to considerations regarding strategic alternatives. These costs are excluded because the charges are unrelated to the ongoing operation of the business in the ordinary course. Because these costs are unrelated to the Company's core operations, they are not included in the Company's annual operating plan. We analyze and measure our operating results without these charges when evaluating our core performance.
 
(k) The lease on our new headquarters located at 951 Mariners Island Boulevard commenced on June 1, 2012. However, we relocated to this new facility on July 23, 2012. During the second quarter and as a result of our contractual commitments, we incurred rent expenses on both the Bridgepointe and the Mariners Island facilities. The rent adjustment above prorates and adjusts the rent expenses during the quarter to only include rent for the occupied Bridgepointe facility . We also incurred a one-time lease restoration charge associated with the Bridgepointe facility during the second quarter of 2012.
 
(l) The amount represents the impairment of fixed assets.
 
(m) Foreign currency exchange gains and losses represent the net gain or loss that Actuate has recorded for the impact of currency exchange rate movements on monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies related to the revaluation of these assets and liabilities.
 
(n) Income tax expense is adjusted by the amount of additional expense or benefit that we would accrue if we used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results in the calculation of our tax liability, taking into consideration the company's long-term tax structure. The Company uses a normalized effective tax rate of 30%.
 
(o) Shares used in calculating diluted earnings per share have been adjusted to reflect what the share amounts would have been if they were calculated using non-GAAP results.
