OPNET Announces Financial Results for Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2012
BETHESDA, Md., May 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OPNET Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OPNT), the leading provider of solutions for application and network performance management today announced that revenue for the fourth fiscal quarter, ended March 31, 2012, was $44.6 million, compared to $41.1 million for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. Diluted earnings per share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were $0.18, compared to $0.17 for the same quarter in the prior fiscal year. The Company also announced today a quarterly dividend of $0.15 per share payable on June 28, 2012 to stockholders of record as of the close of business on June 14, 2012. The $0.15 dividend represents one quarter of the Company's fiscal 2013 annual dividend target of $0.60 per share. During fiscal 2012, the Company paid aggregate quarterly dividends of $0.48 per share and a one-time special dividend of $0.85 per share.
Marc A. Cohen, OPNET's Chairman and CEO, stated, "While we are disappointed that we did not achieve our revenue guidance for the quarter, we are pleased to report that $2.2 million of the $2.4 million in delayed March deals discussed during our last conference call have been closed. Our application performance management (APM) products continue to drive our business. APM product bookings accounted for 78% of our total product bookings during the March quarter, and grew 37% from the same quarter last fiscal year. The growth in demand for our APM products, together with strong maintenance renewal bookings, allowed us to end the quarter with record deferred revenue of $54.9 million."
Mr. Cohen continued, "Fiscal 2012 was a significant year of growth. APM product sales accounted for 76% of our total product bookings during the year, and increased 32% over fiscal 2011. Strong demand for our APM products during fiscal 2012 enabled us to grow product revenue year-over-year by 18.5%, and increase operating income year-over-year by 48.4%. We believe that demand for our APM products is being driven both by superior analytics and by our end-to-end solutions that span applications, systems, and networks within a broad range of deployment scenarios, including public and private clouds. We believe that these competitive advantages will generate sustained growth in product revenue and profitability over the long term. We believe in the strength of our business and the opportunities in front of us, which is also reflected by the increase in our quarterly dividend."
The Company's fourth quarter fiscal 2012 financial results are presented below. The non-GAAP results exclude the income statement effects of stock-based compensation and acquisition-related amortization of intangible assets. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results has been provided in the financial statement table following the text of the press release. For further information, please refer to the section of the press release titled "Use of Non-GAAP Measures."

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Outlook
OPNET currently expects fiscal 2013 first quarter GAAP revenue to be between $42.5 million and $45.0 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share to be between $0.13 and $0.19, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be between $0.16 and $0.23. The non-GAAP diluted earnings per share expectation excludes approximately $795,000 of expense for the quarter associated with stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and the related impact of these adjustments on the provision for income taxes. These estimates represent management's current expectations about the Company's future financial performance, based on information available at this time.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures
OPNET uses a variety of financial measures that are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, as supplemental measures to GAAP to evaluate its operational performance. These financial measures, which include non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted net income per common share, exclude the impact of certain items and, therefore, have not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. A detailed explanation of each of the adjustments to such financial measures is described below. A reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure is also included below. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit expressed as a percentage of GAAP total revenue. Non-GAAP operating margin is non-GAAP operating income expressed as a percentage of GAAP total revenue.
Management uses non-GAAP financial measures (a) to evaluate OPNET's historical and prospective financial performance as well as its performance relative to its competitors, and (b) to measure operational profitability and the accuracy of forecasting. In addition, many financial analysts who follow OPNET focus on and publish both historical results and future projections based on non-GAAP financial measures. OPNET believes that it is in the best interest of its investors to provide this information to analysts so that they accurately report the non-GAAP financial information. Moreover, investors have historically requested these non-GAAP financial measures as a means of providing consistent and comparable information with past reports of financial results.
While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, are not reported by all of OPNET's competitors and may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures of OPNET's competitors due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation. OPNET compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures only as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by providing the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures.
The adjustments we use to derive these non-GAAP financial measures, and the basis for such adjustments, are outlined below:
Amortization of intangibles and its related tax impact. OPNET incurs amortization of intangibles related to various acquisitions it has made in recent years. This amortization is included in the following line items of its GAAP statement of operations presentation:
- cost of revenue -- amortization of acquired technology and customer relationships
- operating expenses -- research and development
Management excludes these expenses and their related tax impact for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted net income per common share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of OPNET because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of three to five years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, management does not consider these expenses for purposes of evaluating the performance of OPNET during the applicable time period after a given acquisition.
Stock-based compensation expense and its related tax impact. OPNET incurs expense related to stock-based compensation, which is included in the following line items of its GAAP statement of operations presentation:
- cost of revenue -- product updates, technical support and services
- cost of revenue -- professional services
- operating expenses -- research and development
- operating expenses -- sales and marketing
- operating expenses -- general and administrative
Although stock-based compensation is an expense of OPNET and is viewed as a form of compensation, management excludes these expenses for the purpose of calculating non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted net income per common share when it evaluates the continuing operational performance of OPNET. Specifically, OPNET excludes stock-based compensation during its quarterly and annual assessments of OPNET's and management's performance. In evaluating the performance of senior management, stock-based compensation is excluded from expenditure and profitability results.
Diluted weighted average common shares outstanding. Non-GAAP diluted net income per common share reflects the elimination of amortization of intangibles, stock-based compensation expense and the related tax impacts, all as discussed above. In addition, in cases in which the non-GAAP net income changes from negative to positive when compared to the GAAP net income, or vice versa, the non-GAAP per-share calculation also gives effect to an adjustment to the number of diluted weighted average common shares outstanding reflecting the application of the treasury method and the fact that shares previously considered anti-dilutive would now be considered dilutive, or vice versa.
