- Third quarter revenue of $526 million, unchanged from prior-year period, up 2 percent in constant currency(1)
- Recurring revenue up 7 percent, up 9 percent in constant currency, from prior-year period(1)
- Subscription-based transactions contributed 82 percent of bookings mix in the quarter, higher than expected
- Third quarter cash from operations and free cash flow as expected(2)
- Repurchased 1.2 million shares during the third quarter for approximately $49 million, $206 million YTD

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC) reported revenue of $526 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, the same as reported in the third quarter of 2017 (up 2 percent in constant currency(1)). Recurring revenue of $312 million was up 7 percent (up 9 percent in constant currency(1)) from the third quarter of 2017. Subscription-based transactions contributed 82 percent of the company's bookings mix in the quarter, higher than anticipated and better than Teradata's recently increased full-year expectation of 65-70 percent. Currency movement during the third quarter resulted in 1.5 points of sequential headwind from the second quarter of 2018.

Teradata reported net income of $18 million under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the third quarter of 2018, or $0.15 per diluted share, which compared to net income of $13 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2018, which excludes stock-based compensation expense and special items, was $43 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, as compared to $36 million, or $0.29 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2017(3)

"We are seeing the bookings mix shift to our subscription-based options faster than we estimated 90 days ago; this indicates our new strategy and business approach is resonating with customers," said Vic Lund, President and Chief Executive Officer, Teradata. "At our previously estimated bookings mix for subscription-based options, we would have exceeded our Q3 revenue guidance, however the accelerating adoption of subscriptions is better for customers, Teradata's future and our shareholders. I would like to thank everyone at Teradata for rising above the challenge to successfully execute our strategy."

Gross Margin
For the third quarter of 2018, gross margin reported under GAAP was 50.2 percent versus 47.5 percent for the third quarter of 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and special items, gross margin for the third quarter of 2018 was 52.9 percent, versus 51.3 percent in the prior-year period(3). Growth in recurring revenue and consulting gross margin improvement drove the increase over the prior year.

Operating Income
Operating income reported under GAAP in the third quarter of 2018 was $14 million compared to $9 million in the third quarter of 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and special items, operating income was $56 million in the third quarter of 2018, versus $52 million in the third quarter of 2017(3).

Income Taxes
Teradata's tax rate under GAAP was (80.0) percent for the third quarter of 2018 compared to (116.7) percent in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding special items, Teradata's non-GAAP tax rate was 17.3 percent in the third quarter of 2018 versus 26.5 percent in the third quarter of 2017(3). The decrease in the non-GAAP effective tax rate was largely due to the decrease in the U.S. statutory rate effective in 2018 as a result of U.S. tax reform enacted in late 2017.

Cash Flow
Teradata used $33 million of cash in operating activities in the third quarter of 2018, compared to using $8 million in the same period in 2017. During the quarter, Teradata used $35 million, versus using $32 million in the third quarter of 2017, for capital expenditures. In the third quarter of 2018, Teradata's free cash flow was negative $68 million, compared to negative $40 million in the third quarter of 2017(2).

Year to date, Teradata generated $257 million of cash from operating activities versus $301 million in 2017. Free cash flow for the first nine months of 2018 was $160 million, compared to $235 million for the same period in 2017(2).

Balance Sheet
Teradata ended the third quarter of 2018 with $768 million in cash. As of September 30, 2018, Teradata had repatriated $800 million of cash previously held internationally, completing the total repatriation planned for 2018. Teradata anticipates using a portion of these repatriated funds for share repurchases and expects to retain the remainder for general corporate purposes. 

During the third quarter of 2018, Teradata repurchased 1.2 million shares of the Company's common stock for approximately $49 million. Year to date, the Company has repurchased 5.4 million shares for approximately $206 million. Teradata currently has approximately $338 million of Board authorization remaining for share repurchases.

The Company had total debt of $500 million as of September 30, 2018. In addition, the Company had $22 million in outstanding capital lease obligations. There were no funds drawn on the company's $400 million revolving credit facility as of September 30, 2018.

Guidance
As a result of the faster than expected shift to subscription-based transactions, Teradata now expects its 2018 full year subscription-based bookings mix to be at the higher end of its previous expected range of 65 percent to 70 percent. However, Teradata continues to expect 2018 full-year revenue to be in the $2.130 billion to $2.150 billion range. Correspondingly, Teradata expects revenue in the fourth quarter of 2018 to be in the $555 million to $575 million range.

For the full year, recurring revenue is expected to increase approximately 9 percent reported as well as in constant currency.

As a result, Teradata expects full-year 2018 GAAP earnings per share to be $0.27 to $0.31. On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes stock-based compensation expense and special items, earnings per share expected to be in the $1.22 to $1.26 range(3). GAAP earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2018 is expected to be in the $0.14 to $0.18 range. Non-GAAP earnings per share in the fourth quarter is expected to be in the $0.41 to $0.45 range(3).

Earnings Conference Call
A conference call is scheduled today at 2:00 p.m. PT to discuss the Company's third quarter 2018 results. Access to the conference call, as well as a replay of the call, is available on Teradata's website at investor.teradata.com.

2. 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/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 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.

3. 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.

Teradata's reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results included in this release.
