Keysight Technologies Reports First Quarter 2016 Results

February 18, 2016

Board of Directors Authorizes $200 Million Share Repurchase Program

Highlights:

  • GAAP net income of $64 million, or $0.37 per share
  • Non-GAAP net income of $95 million, or $0.55 per share(1)
  • GAAP revenue of $721 million, up 3 percent year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP revenue of $726 million, up 4 percent year-over-year(2)

SANTA ROSA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today reported GAAP revenue of $721 million and non-GAAP revenue of $726 million for the first fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2016, with non-GAAP revenue up 4 percent, or down 1 percent on a core basis, which excludes the impact of currency and acquisitions, compared with one year ago.(2)

“Keysight delivered strong first quarter results with both revenue and earnings above the midpoint of our guidance. Our results this quarter were driven by our operational discipline and continued execution on our key initiatives to transform our business and create value for our customers, partners and shareholders,” said Ron Nersesian, Keysight president and CEO.

“While macroeconomic headwinds continue to impact our near-term market outlook, we are building momentum with our new leading-edge technologies and solutions and remain committed to investing in our business and delivering solid profitability in-line with our operating model. The share repurchase program we are announcing today reflects our confidence in our long-term market opportunities and strong cash flow generation, and demonstrates our commitment to create value for shareholders,” added Nersesian.

Compared with the first quarter of last year, communications market revenue grew 8 percent, driven by our acquisition of Anite and increased 5G sales, which was partially offset by cautious capital spending sentiment. Aerospace & defense market revenue declined 1 percent as a strong increase in sales to prime contractor customers in North America was offset by continued slower demand in parts of Europe and Asia. Industrial, computer and semiconductor market revenue grew 3 percent driven by strength in computer and semiconductor markets. From a geographic perspective, total revenue grew year-over-year in the Americas, Europe and most notably in Japan, where revenue increased 13 percent.

First quarter GAAP gross margin of 54.0 percent decreased 0.6 percentage points year-over-year. Non-GAAP gross margin of 56.6 percent increased 1.0 percentage points as the mix of R&D and software revenue improved.(1)

First quarter GAAP operating income was $98 million, or 13.6 percent of revenue and non-GAAP operating income was $129 million, or 17.8 percent of revenue.(1)

First-quarter GAAP net income was $64 million, or $0.37 per share.(1) First-quarter non-GAAP net income was $95 million, or $0.55 per share,(1) which excludes other net adjustments of $31 million.

Second Fiscal Quarter Outlook

Keysight provides guidance based on current market conditions and expectations.

Keysight’s second-quarter 2016 non-GAAP revenue is expected to be in the range of $695 million to $735 million.(2) Second-quarter non-GAAP earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $0.48 to $0.62.(3)

Share Repurchase Authorization

Keysight’s Board of Directors authorized a new share repurchase program for up to $200 million of its common stock.

Non-GAAP Measures

Keysight uses a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The definition of these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled measures used by others, and such non-GAAP measures should be considered supplemental to and not a substitute for financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Keysight generally uses non-GAAP financial measures to facilitate management’s comparisons to historic operating results, to competitors’ operating results and to guidance provided to investors. In addition, Keysight believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides greater transparency to investors of information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making.

(1) Non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per share exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Keysight also excludes any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Earnings per share is based on diluted shares. Reconciliation between non-GAAP net income and GAAP net income, is set forth on page 4 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of this non-GAAP measure.

(2) Non-GAAP revenue excludes the impact of fair value adjustment to acquisition-related deferred revenue balances for the Anite acquisition. Non-GAAP revenue as projected for Q2 FY16 also excludes the impact of fair value adjustment to acquisition-related deferred revenue balances. Core revenue is defined as Non-GAAP revenue excluding the impact of currency and revenue from acquisitions until the first anniversary of the acquisition closing date. A reconciliation between historical GAAP revenue, non-GAAP revenue and core revenue is provided on page 6 of the attached tables, along with additional information regarding the use of these non-GAAP measures.

(3) Non-GAAP earnings per share as projected for Q2 FY16 exclude primarily the impacts of share-based compensation, restructuring and related costs, separation and related costs, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition-related fair value adjustments, asset impairments and non-cash intangible amortization. Most of these excluded amounts pertain to events that have not yet occurred and are not currently possible to estimate with a reasonable degree of accuracy. Therefore, no reconciliation to GAAP amounts has been provided. Keysight is utilizing a fixed long-term projected non-GAAP tax rate. When projecting this long-term rate, Keysight excludes any tax benefits or expenses that are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. Additionally, Keysight evaluates its current long-term projections, current tax structure and other factors such as existing tax positions in various jurisdictions and key tax holidays in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates. This long-term non-GAAP tax rate eliminates the effects of non-recurring and period specific items. This tax rate could be subject to change in the future for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to significant changes in geographic earnings mix including acquisition activity, or fundamental tax law changes in major jurisdictions where Keysight operates.

(a) The adjustment for taxes excludes tax benefits that management believes are not directly related to ongoing operations and which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any regularity or predictability. For the three months ended January 31, 2016, management uses a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 17%, that we believe to be indicative of on-going operations.
 
Historical amounts are reclassified to conform with current presentation.
 
We provide non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share amounts in order to provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operational performance and our prospects for the future. These supplemental measures exclude, among other things, charges related to the amortization of intangibles, the impact of restructuring and related costs, asset impairments, acquisition and integration costs, share based compensation, separation and related costs and acquisition related fair value adjustments. Some of the exclusions, such as impairments, may be beyond the control of management. Further, some may be less predictable than revenue derived from our core businesses (the day to day business of selling our products and services). These reasons provide the basis for management's belief that the measures are useful.
Intangible amortization include non-cash intangible amortization recognized in connection with acquisitions.
Share-based compensation includes expense for all share-based payment awards made to our employees and directors including employee stock option awards, restricted stock units, employee stock purchases made under our employee stock purchase plan (“ESPP”) and performance share awards granted to selected members of our senior management under the long-term performance plan (“LTPP”) based on estimated fair values.
Acquisition and Integration costs include all incremental expenses incurred to effect a business combination which have been expensed during the period. Such acquisition costs may include advisory, legal, accounting, valuation, and other professional or consulting fees. Such integration costs may include expenses directly related to integration of business and facility operations, information technology systems and infrastructure and other employee-related costs.
Acquisition related fair value adjustments includes business combination accounting effects from the acquisition including reduction in revenue and increase in cost of sales due to the respective estimated fair value adjustments to deferred revenue and inventory.
Separation and related costs include all incremental expenses incurred in order to effect the separation of Keysight from Agilent, including the cost of new hires specifically required to operate two separate companies. The intent is to only include in non-GAAP expenses what would not have been incurred if we had no plan to spin-off. These costs include, among other things, branding, legal, accounting and other advisory fees and other costs to separate and transition from Agilent
Other includes gain on sale of land, miscellaneous items like litigation settlements, and assets that have been written down to their fair value. It also includes one time restructuring costs associated with publicly announced major restructuring programs, usually aimed at material changes in business and/or cost structure.
 
Our management uses non-GAAP measures to evaluate the performance of our core businesses, to estimate future core performance and to compensate employees. Since management finds this measure to be useful, we believe that our investors benefit from seeing our results “through the eyes” of management in addition to seeing our GAAP results. This information facilitates our management’s internal comparisons to our historical operating results as well as to the operating results of our competitors.
 
Our management recognizes items such as amortization of intangibles, restructuring charges etc. that can have a material impact on our cash flows and/or our net income. Our GAAP financial statements including our statement of cash flows portray those effects. Although we believe it is useful for investors to see core performance free of special items, investors should understand that the excluded items are actual expenses that may impact the cash available to us for other uses. To gain a complete picture of all effects on the company’s profit and loss from any and all events, management does (and investors should) rely upon the GAAP income statement. The non-GAAP numbers focus instead upon the core business of the company, which is only a subset, albeit a critical one, of the company’s performance.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
 
 
The preliminary reconciliation from GAAP to Non-GAAP net income is estimated based on our current information.

Management believes that these measures provide useful information to investors by reflecting an additional way of viewing aspects of Keysight's operations that, when reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures, help our investors to better identify underlying growth trends in our business and facilitate easier comparisons of our revenue performance with prior and future periods and to our peers. We excluded the effect of recent acquisitions and divestitures because the nature, size and number of these can vary dramatically from period to period and between us and our peers, which we believe may obscure underlying business trends and make comparisons of long-term performance difficult.

Income from operations reflect the results of our reportable segments under Keysight's management reporting system which are not necessarily in conformity with GAAP financial measures. Income from operations of our reporting segments exclude, among other things, charges related to the amortization of intangibles, share based compensation, restructuring and related costs, asset impairment, acquisition and integration costs, acquisition related fair value adjustments and separation and related costs.
 
Readers are reminded that non-GAAP numbers are merely a supplement to, and not a replacement for, GAAP financial measures. They should be read in conjunction with the GAAP financial measures. It should be noted as well that our non-GAAP information may be different from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.
 
The preliminary segment information is estimated based on our current information.
