RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 ended May 31, 2019.

“We continue to unlock the potential of developers and enterprises, enabling our customers to succeed in building next generation IT infrastructure and applications,” stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. “Customer interest in Red Hat technologies is robust, evidenced by a record attendance of nearly 9,000 attendees at Red Hat Summit, our marquee user event. At the event, we announced the general availability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 and OpenShift 4, building on our track record of delivering innovation that creates business value for our customers. Customer excitement was evident at the event and further reflected in the quarter, where we added more than 90 new OpenShift customers.”

“The first quarter was a strong start to FY20, with double digit growth across a number of our financial metrics, including 15% total revenue growth year-over-year in U.S. dollars, or 18% measured in constant currency; and 24% in U. S. dollars, or 29% in constant currency, growth year-over-year in our Application Development-related and other emerging technology revenue,” said Eric Shander, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. “Our large deal momentum remained strong, as we doubled the number of deals over $5 million and saw 15% growth in the number of deals over $1 million from the year-ago quarter. Many of these deals contained emerging technologies, including an OpenStack deal for over $5 million and our largest ever storage and hyperconverged deal for over $15 million. The breadth of our success demonstrates that customers can realize significant value across our product portfolio.”

Revenue: Total revenue for the quarter was $934 million, up 15% year-over-year, or 18% measured in constant currency. Constant currency references in this release are detailed in the tables below. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $815 million, up 15% year-over-year, or 18% measured in constant currency. Subscription revenue in the quarter was 87% of total revenue. Services revenue for the quarter was $119 million, up 17% year-over-year, or 22% measured in constant currency.

Subscription Revenue Breakout: Subscription revenue from Infrastructure-related offerings for the quarter was $580 million, an increase of 11% year-over-year, or 14% measured in constant currency. Subscription revenue from Application Development-related and other emerging technology offerings for the quarter was $235 million, an increase of 24% year-over-year, or 29% measured in constant currency.

Operating Income: GAAP operating income for the quarter was $132 million, up 18% year-over-year. After adjusting for non-cash share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and transaction costs related to business combinations, non-GAAP adjusted operating income for the first quarter was $202 million, up 20% year-over-year. For the first quarter, GAAP operating margin was 14.1% and non-GAAP adjusted operating margin was 21.7%. Non-GAAP references in this release are detailed in the tables below.

Net Income: GAAP net income for the quarter was $141 million, or $0.76 diluted earnings per share (“EPS”), compared with GAAP net income of $113 million, or $0.59 diluted earnings per share, in the year-ago quarter. Included in net income for the quarter is a net tax benefit of $13.2 million primarily related to an intra-entity transfer of assets.

After adjusting for non-cash share-based compensation expense, amortization of intangible assets, transaction costs related to business combinations and non-cash interest expense related to the debt discount, non-GAAP adjusted net income for the quarter was $186 million, or $1.00 diluted EPS, as compared to $133 million, or $0.72 diluted EPS, in the year-ago quarter. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted weighted average shares outstanding excludes dilution that is expected to be offset by our convertible note hedge transactions.

Cash: GAAP operating cash flow was $460 million for the first quarter, up 33% on a year-over-year basis. Non-GAAP operating cash flow adjusts for the impact of our adoption of ASU 2016-15: Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, which requires the portion of repayments of convertible notes during the first quarter that is attributable to debt discount to be classified as operating cash flow. Non-GAAP operating cash flow, which excludes this impact of approximately $14 million, was $474 million, up 37% on a year-over-year basis compared to non-GAAP operating cash flow. Total convertible note repayments were $615 million as of May 31, 2019, with a remaining principal value of $190 million. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of May 31, 2019 was $2.7 billion.

Deferred revenue: At the end of the first quarter, the Company’s total deferred revenue balance was $2.8 billion, an increase of 14% year-over-year. The negative impact to total deferred revenue from changes in foreign exchange rates was $57 million year-over-year. On a constant currency basis, total deferred revenue would have increased 17% year-over-year.

Due to the pending transaction with International Business Machines Corporation, Red Hat will not be hosting a conference call for its first quarter of fiscal 2020 business results and will not be providing an outlook for its fiscal year 2020.

Additional information on Red Hat’s reported results, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted results, are included in the financial tables below.
