Mike Gregoire, CA Technologies Chief Executive Officer, made the following comments:

“We concluded a year of significant transformation and strategic progress on our journey to build CA for growth and market leadership. We have successfully executed our rebalancing program, consolidated development resources in key hubs, shifted innovation investment to new growth markets, and renewed our focus on building and delivering excellent, differentiated solutions to our customers.

"Against this backdrop of activity, our continued focus on financial and operational execution resulted in a margin increase to 37 percent* and the attainment of all financial guidance measures for fiscal year 2014.

"As we look toward fiscal year 2015, we will remain laser-focused on driving execution, innovation and speed across the organization. Revenue is still not where we would like it to be, and we will not be satisfied until we are driving meaningful growth for our company and our shareholders. All 12,700 people across the Company are focused on the work ahead to position CA to win.”

The decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to a decrease in fiscal 2014 and prior period Enterprise Solutions new product sales.
 

The increase in the Company's full year bookings was primarily due to a year-over-year increase in renewals within subscription and maintenance bookings. This was partially offset by a decrease in total new product and Mainframe Solutions capacity sales.
 

The Company executed a total of 54 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $1.973 billion. During fiscal 2013, the Company executed a total of 52 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $1.514 billion.
 
The weighted average duration of subscription and maintenance bookings for fiscal 2014 was 3.35 years, compared with 3.27 years for fiscal 2013.

Year-over-year non-GAAP results exclude purchased software and other intangibles amortization, share-based compensation, capitalization (an add-back) and amortization of internal software costs, Board approved rebalancing initiatives, and certain other gains and losses. The results also include gains and losses on hedges that mature within the quarter, but exclude gains and losses on hedges that do not mature within the quarter.

GAAP operating income was negatively affected by $38 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, as a result of a decrease in the amount of capitalized software development costs. In addition, GAAP operating income was negatively affected by $37 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, as a result of costs associated with the Company's fiscal 2014 rebalancing plan (the Fiscal 2014 Plan).
 

This negative effect was partially offset by an impairment of $55 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, related to purchased software products recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.
 

The decline in non-GAAP operating income was driven by an increase in external consulting and promotional expenses, and was partially offset by lower personnel costs.
 

GAAP EPS was negatively affected by $0.13 due to a higher effective tax rate. Non-GAAP EPS was positively affected by $0.03 due to a lower effective tax rate.

In addition, GAAP operating income was negatively affected by $128 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, as a result of a decrease in the amount of capitalized software development costs.
 

Fiscal 2013 GAAP earnings included an impairment of $55 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, related to purchased software products recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2013.
 
GAAP and non-GAAP operating expenses were positively affected by lower personnel costs, primarily within selling and marketing.
 

GAAP and non-GAAP EPS were positively affected by $0.31 and $0.48, respectively, due to a lower effective tax rate. The Company recognized a net benefit of approximately $168 million in fiscal 2014, primarily from the resolution of uncertain tax positions relating to U.S. and non-U.S. jurisdictions.
 

SEGMENT INFORMATION

Starting in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the measure of segment expenses and segment profit was revised to treat all costs of internal software development as segment expense in the period the costs are incurred. As a result, the Company will add back capitalized internal software costs and exclude amortization of internally developed software costs previously capitalized from segment expenses. Segment expenses also exclude the effects of the Fiscal 2014 Plan. Prior period segment expenses and profit information have been revised to present segment profit and expenses on a consistent basis.

  Enterprise Solutions revenue decreased compared with the year-ago period primarily due to a decrease in new product sales in both the current and prior fiscal year.

CASH FLOW FROM OPERATIONS

  Cash flow from continuing operations in the fourth quarter was $483 million, compared with $565 million in the prior year. The decrease year-over-year was due to a decrease in cash collections from single installment payments of $90 million, payments related to the Fiscal 2014 Plan and a reduction in capitalized software development costs.
 
For the full year, cash flow from continuing operations was $997 million, compared with $1.390 billion in the prior year. The decrease year-over-year was due to a decrease in cash collections and a number of expected factors including higher cash taxes, payments related to the Fiscal 2014 Plan and a reduction in capitalized software development costs. The decrease in cash collections was primarily due to a decrease in cash collections from single installment payments of $170 million.
 

CAPITAL STRUCTURE

  Cash, cash equivalents and investments at March 31, 2014 were $3.252 billion.
 
With $1.766 billion in total debt outstanding and $139 million in notional pooling, the Company’s net cash, cash equivalents and investments position was $1.347 billion.
 
In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company repurchased more than 5 million shares of stock for $167 million. For fiscal 2014, the Company repurchased 16 million shares of stock for $505 million.
 
At March 31, 2014, the Company has completed the purchases of its common stock under its stock repurchase program that was authorized in January 2012.
 
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company distributed $112 million in dividends to shareholders. For fiscal 2014, the Company distributed $453 million in dividends to shareholders.
 
The Company’s outstanding share count at March 31, 2014 was 439 million.
 

NEW AUTHORIZED SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

On May 14, 2014, the Company's Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program that authorized the Company to acquire up to $1 billion of CA common stock. The Company expects to complete the program in approximately three years. The Company expects to fund the program with available cash on hand and repurchase shares on the open market, through solicited or unsolicited privately negotiated transactions or otherwise, from time to time, based on market conditions and other factors.

OUTLOOK FOR FISCAL 2015

The following outlook for fiscal 2015 contains "forward-looking statements" (as defined below).

The Company expects the following:

  Total revenue to decrease in a range of minus 2 percent to minus 1 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2014 exchange rates, this translates to reported revenue of $4.43 billion to $4.49 billion.
 

GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to decrease in a range of minus 12 percent to minus 8 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2014 exchange rates, this translates to reported GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.79 to $1.86.
 
Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations to decrease in a range of minus 21 percent to minus 19 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2014 exchange rates, this translates to reported non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $2.45 to $2.52.
 
Cash flow from continuing operations to increase in a range of 5 percent to 12 percent in constant currency. At March 31, 2014 exchange rates, this translates to reported cash flow from continuing operations of $1.06 billion to $1.13 billion.
 

This outlook assumes no material acquisitions and a partial currency hedge of operating income. The Company expects a full-year GAAP operating margin of 28 percent and non-GAAP operating margin of 37 percent. The Company also expects to return to a normalized full-year GAAP and non-GAAP effective tax rate of about 30 percent, which results in a negative impact to GAAP and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of approximately $0.42 and $0.58, respectively.

The Company anticipates approximately 436 million shares outstanding at fiscal 2015 year-end and weighted average diluted shares outstanding of approximately 442 million for the fiscal year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release, the accompanying tables and the additional content that is available on the Company's website, including a supplemental financial package, include certain financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items and therefore have not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Non-GAAP metrics for operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, income from continuing operations and diluted earnings per share exclude the following items: non-cash amortization of purchased software and other intangibles, share-based compensation, fiscal 2007 restructuring costs, recoveries and certain costs associated with derivative litigation matters and certain other gains and losses, which include the gains and losses since inception of hedges that mature within the quarter, but exclude gains and losses of hedges that do not mature within the quarter. The Company will expense costs for internally developed software where development efforts commenced in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 and afterwards. As a result, product development and enhancement expenses are expected to increase in future periods as the amount capitalized for internally developed software costs decreases. Due to this change, the Company will also add back capitalized internal software costs and exclude the amortization of internal software costs from these non-GAAP metrics. Also beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company will exclude charges relating to rebalancing initiatives that are large enough to require approval from the Company's Board of Directors. The effective tax rate on GAAP and non-GAAP income from operations is the Company's provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of pre-tax GAAP and non-GAAP income from continuing operations, respectively. These tax rates are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate, with the effective tax rate for GAAP generally including the impact of discrete items in the period in which such items arise and the effective tax rate for non-GAAP generally allocating the impact of discrete items pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods. Adjusted cash flow from operations excludes payments associated with the fiscal 2014 Board-approved rebalancing initiative as described above, capitalized software development costs as described above, and restructuring and other payments. Free cash flow excludes purchases of property and equipment and capitalized software development costs. The Company presents constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how the Company's underlying businesses performed excluding the effect of foreign currency rate fluctuations. To present this information, current and comparative prior period results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. dollars are converted into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate in effect on the last day of the Company's prior fiscal year (i.e., March 31, 2014, March 31, 2013, March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, respectively). Constant currency excludes the impacts from the Company's hedging program. The constant currency calculation for annualized subscription and maintenance bookings is calculated by dividing the subscription and maintenance bookings in constant currency by the weighted average subscription and maintenance duration in years. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. By excluding these items, non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and cash flows, to competitors' operating results and cash flows, and to estimates made by securities analysts. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate its performance and they are key variables in determining management incentive compensation. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, the Company has historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures to its investors and believes that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in its financial reporting. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this news release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are attached to this news release.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The declaration and payment of future dividends is subject to the determination of the Company's Board of Directors, in its sole discretion, after considering various factors, including the Company's financial condition, historical and forecast operating results, and available cash flow, as well as any applicable laws and contractual covenants and any other relevant factors. The Company's practice regarding payment of dividends may be modified at any time and from time to time.

Repurchases under the Company's stock repurchase program are expected to be made with cash on hand and may be made from time to time, subject to market conditions and other factors, in the open market, through solicited or unsolicited privately negotiated transactions or otherwise. The program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and it may be modified or suspended at any time at the Company's discretion.

Certain statements in this communication (such as statements containing the words "believes," "plans," "anticipates," "expects," "estimates," "targets" and similar expressions relating to the future) constitute "forward-looking statements" that are based upon the beliefs of, and assumptions made by, the Company's management, as well as information currently available to management. These forward-looking statements reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and assumptions.

(1) The Company’s Mainframe Solutions and Enterprise Solutions segments comprise its software business organized by the nature of the Company’s software offerings and the platform on which the products operate. The Services segment comprises product implementation, consulting, customer education and customer training, including those directly related to the Mainframe Solutions and Enterprise Solutions software that the Company sells to its customers.
 
(2) The Company regularly enters into a single arrangement with a customer that includes mainframe solutions, enterprise solutions and services. The amount of contract revenue assigned to operating segments is generally based on the manner in which the proposal is made to the customer. The software product revenue is assigned to the Mainframe Solutions and Enterprise Solutions segments based on either: (1) a list price allocation method (which allocates a discount in the total contract price to the individual products in proportion to the list price of the product); (2) allocations included within internal contract approval documents; or (3) the value for individual software products as stated in the customer contract. The price for the implementation, consulting, education and training services is separately stated in the contract and these amounts of contract revenue are assigned to the Services segment. The contract value assigned to each operating segment is then recognized in a manner consistent with the revenue recognition policies the Company applies to the customer contract for purposes of preparing the Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
(3) Segment expenses include costs that are controllable by segment managers (i.e., direct costs) and, in the case of the Mainframe Solutions and Enterprise Solutions segments, an allocation of shared and indirect costs (i.e., allocated costs). Segment-specific direct costs include a portion of selling and marketing costs, licensing and maintenance costs, product development costs and general and administrative costs. Allocated segment costs primarily include indirect and non-segment specific direct selling and marketing costs and general and administrative costs that are not directly attributable to a specific segment. The basis for allocating shared and indirect costs between the Mainframe Solutions and Enterprise Solutions segments is dependent on the nature of the cost being allocated and is either in proportion to segment revenues or in proportion to the related direct cost category. Expenses for the Services segment consist of cost of professional services and other direct costs included within selling and marketing and general and administrative expenses. There are no allocated or indirect costs for the Services segment.
 
(4) Other (gains) expenses, net includes charges relating to the FY2014 Board approved re-balancing initiative (the Fiscal 2014 Plan), certain foreign exchange derivative hedging gains and losses, and other miscellaneous costs.
 
(5) Purchased software amortization includes an impairment of $55 million relating to purchased software products, for the three and twelve month periods ending March 31, 2013.
 
Prior year results have been adjusted to reflect the discontinued operations associated with the sale of the CA ERwin Data Modeling business and for internally developed software.

(1)   GAAP operating margin is calculated by dividing GAAP income from continuing operations before interest and income taxes by total revenue (refer to Table 1 for total revenue).
 
(2) Non-GAAP adjustment consists of share-based compensation.
 
(3) For the three month periods ending March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP adjustment consists of $29 million and $83 million of purchased software amortization and $40 million and $38 million of internally developed software products amortization, respectively. For the twelve month periods ending March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP adjustment consists of $117 million and $163 million of purchased software amortization and $165 million and $154 million of internally developed software products amortization, respectively. Purchased software amortization includes an impairment of $55 million relating to purchased software products, for the three and twelve month periods ending March 31, 2013.
 
(4) For the three month periods ending March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP adjustment consists of $4 million and $5 million of share-based compensation and ($1) million and ($39) million of software development costs capitalized, respectively. For the twelve month periods ending March 31, 2014 and 2013, non-GAAP adjustment consists of $19 million and $17 million of share-based compensation and ($33) million and ($161) million of software development costs capitalized, respectively.
 
(5) Non-GAAP adjustment consists of other intangibles amortization.
 
(6) Non-GAAP adjustment consists of charges relating to the FY2014 Board approved re-balancing initiative (the Fiscal 2014 Plan) and certain other gains and losses, including gains and losses since inception of hedges that mature within the quarter, but excludes gains and losses of hedges that do not mature within the quarter.
 
(7) Non-GAAP operating margin is calculated by dividing non-GAAP income from continuing operations before interest and income taxes by total revenue (refer to Table 1 for total revenue).
 
(8) The full year non-GAAP income tax expense is different from GAAP income tax expense because of the difference in non-GAAP income from continuing operations before income taxes. On an interim basis, this difference would also include a difference in the impact of discrete and permanent items where for GAAP purposes the effect is recorded in the period such items arise, but for non-GAAP such items are recorded pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods.

(2) The effective tax rate for GAAP generally includes the impact of discrete and permanent items in the period such items arise, whereas the effective tax rate for non-GAAP generally allocates the impact of such items pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods.
 
(3) The effective tax rate on GAAP and non-GAAP income from continuing operations is the Company's provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of GAAP and non-GAAP income from continuing operations before income taxes, respectively. The non-GAAP effective tax rate is equal to the full year GAAP effective tax rate. On an interim basis, the effective tax rates are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate after the adjustments for the impacts of certain discrete items (such as changes in tax rates, reconciliations of tax returns to tax provisions and resolutions of tax contingencies).

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profes...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts...
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...
