Teradata Reports First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Teradata continued to make progress on key Cloud, Vantage, and Go-to-market efforts in the first quarter
  • The Company’s technology is critical in supporting customers during COVID-19 and Teradata used this opportunity to further support customers and deepen relationships
  • Teradata’s first-quarter results were negatively impacted by COVID-19
  • The Company is withdrawing its full-year 2020 guidance due to uncertainties relating to COVID-19

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC) today announced its first-quarter 2020 financial results. Business trends through the first two-thirds of the quarter were normal, however the second half of March saw a significant number of deals postponed which negatively impacted first-quarter results. Recurring revenue increased 4 percent, 6 percent in constant currency(1), from the first quarter of 2019. Annual recurring revenue (ARR) increased 6 percent, 8 percent in constant currency(1), from the first quarter of 2019. Total first-quarter revenue was $434 million, compared to 2019 first-quarter total revenue of $468 million. As the company continues to shift to a recurring revenue model and focuses its consulting business on higher-margin engagements, both perpetual and consulting revenues declined versus prior year as expected. In addition, currency translation had a 1 percentage point negative impact on the first-quarter total revenue comparison.

Teradata is focused on supporting our customers and employees through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our history of fostering strong customer relationships and our long-standing position delivering business essential analytics are foundational to our customers in these challenging times,” said Vic Lund, Interim CEO, Teradata. “Our resilience has been proven as we advance our key strategic initiatives including accelerating our transition to the Cloud, driving broader adoption of Vantage, and expanding our go-to-market opportunities. Our extensive enterprise customer base, mission critical technology, and strong financial condition position us well to emerge stronger from the pandemic.”

Teradata reported 2020 first-quarter net income of $168 million under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), or $1.51 per diluted share, which compared to a net loss of $(10) million, or $(0.09) per share, in the first quarter of 2019. As previously disclosed, the company restructured certain of its intellectual property (IP) and recognized a discrete tax benefit in the quarter which contributed $1.41 per diluted share to EPS on a GAAP basis. Non-GAAP 2020 first-quarter net income, which excludes the IP restructuring tax benefit, stock-based compensation expense and other special items, was $30 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, as compared to $26 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2019(2).

Gross Margin

2020 first-quarter gross margin reported under GAAP was 51.8 percent versus 47.9 percent for the first quarter of 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, 2020 first-quarter gross margin was 54.1 percent, versus 51.5 percent in the prior-year period(2). Gross margin was higher year-over-year due primarily to continued mix shift, away from perpetual hardware and consulting to higher margin recurring revenue.

Operating Loss / Income

2020 first-quarter operating loss reported under GAAP was $(6) million which compares to $(5) million in the first quarter of 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, 2020 first-quarter operating income was $32 million versus $41 million in the first quarter of 2019(2). The decrease in non-GAAP operating income was primarily driven by revenue-related headwinds due to the impact of COVID-19, as well as ongoing investments related to our go-to-market and Cloud initiatives.

Income Taxes

Teradata’s 2020 first-quarter tax rate under GAAP was 1,300.0 percent compared to 0.0 percent in the first quarter of 2019, primarily driven by the recognition of a $157 million tax benefit related to the IP restructuring previously disclosed. Excluding special items, Teradata’s non-GAAP 2020 first-quarter tax rate was negative 25.0 percent versus 27.8 percent in the first quarter of 2019(2).

Cash Flow

During the first quarter of 2020, Teradata generated $10 million of cash from operating activities compared to $49 million in the same period of 2019. During the quarter, Teradata used $12 million for capital expenditures and additions to capitalized software development costs, versus using $16 million in the first quarter of 2019. Teradata’s 2020 first-quarter free cash flow was $(2) million, compared to $33 million in the first quarter of 2019(3). The decline in free cash flow year-over-year was primarily driven by over $30 million of delayed cash collections related to COVID-19, the majority of which were collected in April.

Balance Sheet

Teradata ended the first quarter 2020 with $394 million in cash. During the first quarter of 2020, Teradata repurchased 3.7 million shares of the Company’s common stock for approximately $75 million. At the end of the first quarter, Teradata had approximately $432 million of board authorization remaining for share repurchases and 108.3 million shares outstanding. However, as a precautionary measure, the Company has suspended its share buyback program due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic to help ensure it has appropriate cash levels to support its customers and employees.

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had total debt of $610 million, including $135 million of outstanding finance lease obligations. There were no funds drawn on the company’s $400 million revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2020.

Teradata’s Response to COVID-19

First and foremost, our thoughts are with those who has been impacted by COVID-19, directly or indirectly. The health of our employees, our customers and our communities is paramount in these unprecedented times. As COVID-19 spread rapidly around the world during the first quarter, Teradata took a number of measures to support our customers and protect our employees, including, among other things:

  1. To help limit the spread of the virus, our associates are working from home, we are limiting company travel and have transitioned our marketing events to be entirely virtual;
  2. Our focus is on helping our customers through this pandemic by continuing to deliver the highest levels of performance, availability and peace of mind;
  3. In support of the broader global community, we will also be making some of our technology available for our customers, partners, and communities – particularly in healthcare, government and other verticals where collectively, we can positively impact efforts in combating COVID-19; and
  4. Finally, because the situation is dynamic, we instituted a Pandemic Response Team which will continue to monitor the guidance from leading global health organizations and take the appropriate steps to keep all of our stakeholders safe and healthy.

Guidance

Due to the evolving nature and uncertain impact of COVID-19 on Teradata’s operating and financial results, the Company is withdrawing its guidance for the full-year 2020, which was provided on February 6, 2020.

For the second quarter of 2020, Teradata expects recurring revenue in the range between $348 million and $352 million.

GAAP loss per share in the second quarter of 2020 is expected to be in the $(0.09) to $(0.06) range. Non-GAAP earnings per share, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, in the second quarter is expected to be in the $0.19 to $0.22 range(2).

Earnings Conference Call

A conference call is scheduled today at 2:00 p.m. PT to discuss the Company’s 2020 first-quarter results and provide a business and financial update. Access to the conference call, as well as a replay of the conference call, is available on Teradata’s website at investor.teradata.com.

Teradata reports its results in accordance with GAAP. However, as described below, the Company believes that certain non-GAAP measures, such as non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, or EPS, all of 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 EPS under GAAP to the Company’s actual and projected non-GAAP results and EPS for the periods presented, which exclude certain specified items. Our management internally uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross profit, operating income, net income and EPS, excluding certain items, to understand, manage and evaluate our business and support operating decisions on a regular basis. 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 allow investors a view of the Company’s operating results excluding stock-based compensation expense and special items, (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.

(1)

The Company’s forecasted full-year 2020 GAAP effective tax rates include $157 million of discrete tax benefit related to an intra-entity asset transfer of certain of its intellectual property to one of its Irish subsidiaries, which occurred on January 1, 2020. The one-time tax benefit for this intra-entity asset transfer was recorded as a deferred tax asset for GAAP reporting purposes in the first quarter of 2020 but was excluded from Non-GAAP results.

 

 

(2)

The Company’s forecasted full-year 2020 GAAP marginal effective tax rate includes $3 million of tax expense related to tax contingencies pursuant to FIN 48. For GAAP purposes, this is a component of the marginal rate and is recognized as tax benefit or expense based on the Company’s reported GAAP pre-tax income or loss for the quarter. To more accurately reflect the impact of the expense on a quarterly basis for Non-GAAP purposes, the $3 million of tax expense is being recognized ratably each quarter instead of being included in the marginal effective rate.

 

 

(3)

Represents the income tax effect of the pre-tax adjustments to reconcile GAAP to Non-GAAP income based on the applicable jurisdictional statutory tax rate of the underlying item. Including the income tax effect assists investors in understanding the tax provision associated with those adjustments and the effective tax rate related to the underlying business and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations.

 

 

 

As a result of these adjustments, the Company’s non-GAAP effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2020 was (25.0%) and 27.8% in the first quarter of 2019.

 

 

(4)

Represents the impact to earnings per share as a result of moving from basic to diluted shares.

 

3.

As described below, the Company believes that free cash flow is a useful non-GAAP measure for investors. Teradata defines free cash flow as cash provided by /used in 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 the Company’s 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, 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.
