Commvault /zigman2/quotes/205571392/composite CVLT +0.65% today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2022. 

"We are pleased to have delivered another record quarter to cap off the best year in our history," said Sanjay Mirchandani, President and CEO. "Demand is strong for our differentiated portfolio, our team is executing, and we are taking market share. We are excited about our growth prospects in the new fiscal year."         

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 were $205.9 million, an increase of 8% year over year.  Total recurring revenue was $173.2 million, an increase of 19% year over year.  For the full fiscal year, total revenues were $769.6 million, an increase of 6% from fiscal year 2021.

Annualized recurring revenue (ARR), which is the annualized value of all active Commvault recurring revenue streams at the end of the reporting period, was $583.3 million as of March 31, 2022, up 13% from March 31, 2021. Software and products revenue in the fourth quarter was $100.5 million, an increase of 12% year over year.  The year over year increase in software and products revenue was driven by a 19% increase in revenue from larger deals (deals greater than $0.1 million in software and products revenue). Larger deal revenue represented 73% of our software and products revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2022.  The number of larger deal revenue transactions increased 14% year over year to 226 deals for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The average dollar amount of larger deal revenue transactions was approximately $327,000, representing a 4% increase from the prior year quarter.

Software and products revenue for the full fiscal year was $356.5 million, an increase of 9% from fiscal 2021. The year-over-year increase in software and products revenue was driven by a 13% increase in revenue from larger deals.

Larger deal revenue represented 72% of our software and products revenue in fiscal year 2022. The number of larger deal revenue transactions increased 19% from fiscal year 2021 to 799 deals. The average dollar amount of larger deal revenue transactions was approximately $320,000, representing a 4% decrease from the prior year.

Services revenue in the quarter was $105.5 million, up 3% year over year. For the full fiscal year, services revenue was $413.1 million, up 4% from fiscal 2021. Services revenue growth was driven by Commvault's software-as-a-service offerings. 

On a GAAP basis, income from operations (EBIT) was $11.4 million for the fourth quarter compared to $10.3 million in the same period of the prior year. Non-GAAP EBIT was $46.6 million in the quarter compared to $38.8 million in the prior year.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations (EBIT) for the full fiscal year was $41.6 million compared to loss of $22.3 million in fiscal year 2021. Non-GAAP income from operations (EBIT) was $161.7 million in fiscal 2022 compared to $137.5 million in the prior fiscal year quarter.

For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, Commvault reported net income of $8.0 million. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $34.6 million, or $0.75 per diluted share.

For the full fiscal year, Commvault reported a net income of $33.6 million. Non-GAAP net income for the full fiscal year was $118.7 million, or $2.51 per diluted share.

Operating cash flow totaled $87.1 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $64.7 million in the prior year quarter.  For the full fiscal year, operating cash flow was $177.2 million, compared to $124.0 million for fiscal year 2021. Total cash and short-term investments were $267.5 million as of March 31, 2022 compared to $397.2 million as of March 31, 2021. There were no borrowings against the revolving line of credit.

During the fiscal fourth quarter, Commvault repurchased approximately 600,000 shares of its common stock totaling $39.8 million at an average price of approximately $66.29 per share. During the full fiscal year, Commvault repurchased approximately 4.3 million shares of its common stock totaling $305.2 million at an average price of approximately $70.87 per share.

On April 21, 2022, the Board of Directors approved a new share repurchase program of up to $250.0 million. The Board's authorization permits Commvault to make purchases of its common stock from time to time in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions, subject to market and other conditions. The Board's authorization has no expiration date.

"We continue to believe that the strength of our balance sheet, coupled with the current and long-term outlook for our business, provides an opportunity to create value for our long-term shareholders," said Mr. Mirchandani.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in Financial Statement Table IV included in this press release.  An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Commvault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and annualized recurring revenue (ARR).  This financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Commvault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  In addition, Commvault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating Commvault's ongoing operational performance.  Commvault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Commvault's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community.  Commvault has also provided software and products, services and total revenues on a constant currency basis. Commvault analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

All of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV included in this press release.

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.   These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) and related payroll tax expense incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards. Commvault has also excluded restructuring costs, certain costs related to key employees of Hedvig, the noncash amortization of intangible assets, acquisition costs related to TrapX, the gain on the sale of its equity method investment in Laitek, Inc. and, for fiscal year 2021, the noncash impairment of intangible assets from its non-GAAP results. These expenses are further discussed in Table IV.  Commvault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare Commvault's core operating results over multiple periods.  When evaluating the performance of Commvault's operating results and developing short- and long-term plans, Commvault does not consider such expenses. 

Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, Commvault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans.  Commvault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between Commvault's operating results and those of other companies.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature.  Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in Commvault's operating results.  In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of Commvault's employees' compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance.  Lastly, the components that Commvault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.  

Due to the limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures, Commvault's management assists investors by providing a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, Commvault's management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS).   In addition to the adjustments discussed in non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS incorporates a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%. 

Commvault anticipates that in any given period its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations. Commvault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income. Over time, Commvault believes its GAAP and cash tax rates will align.

Commvault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for Commvault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that Commvault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to Commvault's use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.

Footnotes - Adjustments
(1) Represents noncash stock-based compensation charges associated with restricted stock units granted and our Employee Stock Purchase Plan.  Those amounts are represented as follows:

The table above excludes stock-based compensation expense related to the Company's restructuring activities described below in footnote three.


(2) Represents additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards.
(3) In recent fiscal years, Commvault initiated restructuring plans to increase efficiency in its sales, marketing and distribution functions as well as reduce costs across all functional areas.  These restructuring charges relate primarily to severance and related costs associated with headcount reductions, as well as the closure of offices. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, Commvault initiated a restructuring plan to combine the management of its EMEA and APJ field operations. Restructuring includes stock-based compensation related to modifications of awards granted to former employees.  Management believes, when used as a supplement to GAAP results, that the exclusion of these charges will help investors and financial analysts understand Commvault's operating results and underlying operational trends as compared to prior periods.
(4) In connection with the acquisition of Hedvig Inc., certain Hedvig shareholders will receive cash payments for the 30 months following the date of acquisition, subject to their continued employment with Commvault.  While these payments are proportionate to these shareholders' ownership of Hedvig, under GAAP they are accounted for as compensation expense within Research and development expenses over the course of the 30 month service period.  Management believes, when used as a supplement to GAAP results, that the exclusion of these non-routine expenses will help investors and financial analysts understand Commvault's operating results and underlying operational trends as compared to prior periods.
(5) Represents noncash amortization of intangible assets.
(6) In the second quarter of fiscal 2021, Commvault recorded an impairment of its acquired intangible assets. These noncash charges are not representative of ongoing costs to the business and are not expected to recur. As a result, these charges are being excluded to provide investors with a more comparable measure of costs associated with ongoing operations.
(7) During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, Commvault incurred costs related to the acquisition of TrapX. Management believes, when used as a supplement to GAAP results, that the exclusion of these costs will help investors and financial analysts understand Commvault's operating results and underlying operational trends as compared to other periods.
(8) Represents the gain on the sale of Commvault's equity investment in Laitek, Inc.
(9) The provision for income taxes is adjusted to reflect Commvault's estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%.
(10) This table includes the following financial metrics that are derived from Commvault's GAAP recognized revenue:

Subscription software and products revenue - The amounts included on this line include the software and product portion of a) non-cancellable term-based, or subscription, licenses that expire at the end of the contractual term; and b) "pay-as-you-go" utility arrangements based on product usage.  These revenues are included in Software and Products Revenue on Commvault's Consolidated Statement of Operations.



Perpetual software and products revenue - The amounts included on this line are primarily associated with revenue from the sale of perpetual software licenses.  These revenues are included in Software and Products Revenue on Commvault's Consolidated Statement of Operations.



Recurring support and services revenue - The amounts included on this line consist primarily of maintenance and support revenues associated with the sale of both subscription and perpetual software arrangements.  This revenue is included in Services Revenue on Commvault's Consolidated Statement of Operations. This line also includes revenue from software-as-a-service arrangements.



Non-recurring services revenue - The amounts included on this line are primarily revenues associated with Commvault's installation and consultation services.  These revenues are included in Services Revenue on Commvault's Consolidated Statement of Operations.



Management believes that reviewing these metrics, in addition to GAAP results, helps investors and financial analysts understand the recurring nature of certain revenue amounts and trends as compared to prior periods. 



Note that nearly all of Commvault's software and product revenue is related to solutions that are run in the customer's environment.  As a result, as required under ASC 606, substantially all of Commvault's software and product revenue is recognized at a point in time, when it is delivered to the customer, and not ratably over the course of a contractual period.  This is the case for both perpetual software licenses and subscription software licenses. Metallic, Commvault's software-as-a-service offering is recognized over time as services revenue.


(11) Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) is defined as the annualized recurring value of all active contracts at the end of a reporting period.  It includes the following contract types: subscription agreements (including utility), maintenance contracts related to perpetual licenses, other extended maintenance contracts (enterprise support), managed services, and Metallic.  It excludes any element of the deal arrangement that is not expected to recur, primarily perpetual licenses and most professional services.  Contracts are annualized by dividing the total contract value by the number of days in the contract term, then multiplying by 365.



ARR should be viewed independently of GAAP revenue, deferred revenue and unbilled revenue and is not intended to be combined with or to replace those items. ARR is not a forecast of future revenue. Management believes that reviewing this metric, in addition to GAAP results, helps investors and financial analysts understand the value of Commvault's recurring revenue streams versus prior periods. 


(12) Revenues on a constant currency basis are calculated using the average foreign exchange rates from a previous period and applying these rates to foreign-denominated revenues in the corresponding period of fiscal 2022. The difference between revenue calculated based on these foreign exchange rates and revenues calculated in accordance with GAAP is listed as Adjustment for currency impact in the table above.
