Infoblox Announces Preliminary Fiscal Second Quarter 2014 Results

Infoblox (NYSE:BLOX), the automated network control company, today announced preliminary results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2014 ended January 31, 2014.

Infoblox expects net revenue for the second quarter to be approximately $60 million to $61 million, below the company’s prior expectations of $65 million to $66 million. On a GAAP basis, the company expects net loss per diluted share for the second quarter to be in the range of $0.08 to $0.10. Non-GAAP net income per diluted share for the second quarter is expected to be in the range of $0.10 to $0.12, compared with the company’s prior expectations of $0.09 to $0.11 per diluted share. All non-GAAP measures exclude estimates for stock-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets and acquisition related expenses. For the second quarter, non-GAAP net income per diluted share differs from GAAP net loss per diluted share because it excludes stock-based compensation expense of approximately $11 million and intangible asset amortization expense of approximately $1 million.

These preliminary net revenue and earnings (loss) per share estimates are based on management’s initial review of operations for the quarter ended January 31, 2014 and are subject to the completion of the company's customary quarterly closing and review procedures.

“The revenue shortfall in the second quarter was primarily attributable to three factors,” said Robert Thomas, president and chief executive officer. “First, while sales through the first two months of the quarter met our internal expectations, we experienced a much weaker January than expected. Second, we had fewer $1 million-plus transactions in the quarter than we typically do. Finally, our Federal business came in below our expectations. While we are disappointed that we fell short of our financial expectations for the quarter, we remain confident in our strategy, the large market opportunity, our competitive differentiation and the compelling value proposition our products deliver to customers.”

Updated Outlook

Infoblox is also updating its outlook for the fiscal year ending July 31, 2014. The company now expects net revenue for the year to be approximately $250 million to $254 million, versus the company’s prior expectations of $270 million to $276 million. The company expects non-GAAP net income to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.34 diluted earnings per share, compared with the company’s prior expectations of $0.44 to $0.54 diluted earnings per share. This outlook is based on a number of assumptions that the company believes are reasonable at the time of this press release. Information regarding potential risks that could cause the actual results to differ from these forward-looking statements is set forth below and in Infoblox’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP EPS. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and forecast future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items:

Stock-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of stock-based compensation from our non-GAAP operating results. Although stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding stock-based compensation expenses. Stock-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

Amortization of intangible assets: We have excluded the effect of amortization of intangible assets from our non-GAAP operating results. Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense, and it is not part of our core operations. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contributed to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to future period revenues as well.

Acquisition related expenses: Acquisition related expenses may include transaction costs, costs for transitional employees, other acquired employee related retention costs, integration related professional services, adjustments to the fair value of the acquisition related contingent consideration, and the write-down of certain acquired in-progress research and development intangibles. We believe that to the extent we incur significant expenses in connection with our acquisitions, it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our total operating expenses.

Our non-GAAP Financial Measures are described as follows:

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS. Non-GAAP net income is net income (loss) as reported on our consolidated statements of operations, excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, intangible asset amortization expense and acquisition related expenses. Non-GAAP EPS is non-GAAP net income divided by non-GAAP diluted weighted average shares outstanding.
