WATERLOO, Ontario, Nov. 3, 2016 /CNW/ -- Open Text Corporation (OTEX) (TSX: OTC) announced today its financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2016.

"OpenText delivered nearly half a billion dollars in quarterly revenues, double digit cloud and license performance, our fastest start to a fiscal year in the company's history. We expect Fiscal 2017 to be a transformative year for OpenText as we strengthen our product offerings with innovation and acquisitions," said OpenText CEO and CTO, Mark J. Barrenechea. "Our customers are responding well to our digital transformation products and we expect this to translate into double digit revenue growth for the entire year. Within the quarter, we achieved significant milestones with the closing of multiple acquisitions and expect to complete their integrations and improve operations by the end of the fiscal year."

On September 12, 2016, OpenText entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Dell-EMC's Enterprise Content Division (ECD Business), including Documentum.

"The acquisition of Dell-EMC's ECD Business is progressing according to plan and we expect to close the transaction within an estimated 75 days. Once closed, we expect to strengthen our recurring revenues and correspondingly increase cash flow generation. We are excited about the opportunities which ECD Business brings, and I look forward to welcoming our new customers, employees, and partners to OpenText," said Barrenechea.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures: In
addition to reporting financial results
in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the
Company provides certain financial
measures that are not in accordance with
U.S. GAAP (Non-GAAP).These Non-GAAP
financial measures have certain
limitations in that they do not have a
standardized meaning and thus the
Company's definition may be different
from similar Non-GAAP financial
measures used by other companies and/or
analysts and may differ from period to
period. Thus it may be more difficult to
compare the Company's financial
performance to that of other companies.
However, the Company's management
compensates for these limitations by
providing the relevant disclosure of the
items excluded in the calculation of
these Non-GAAP financial measures both
in its reconciliation to the U.S. GAAP
financial measures and its consolidated
financial statements, all of which
should be considered when evaluating the
Company's results.
The Company uses these Non-GAAP
financial measures to supplement the
information provided in its consolidated
financial statements, which are
presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
The presentation of Non-GAAP financial
measures are not meant to be a
substitute for financial measures
presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP,
but rather should be evaluated in
conjunction with and as a supplement to
such U.S. GAAP measures. OpenText
strongly encourages investors to review
its financial information in its
entirety and not to rely on a single
financial measure. The Company therefore
believes that despite these limitations,
it is appropriate to supplement the
disclosure of the U.S. GAAP measures
with certain Non-GAAP measures defined
below.
Non-GAAP-based net income and Non-
GAAP-based EPS are calculated as net
income or earnings per share on a
diluted basis, after giving effect to
the amortization of acquired intangible
assets, other income (expense), share-
based compensation, and Special charges
(recoveries), all net of tax and any tax
benefits/expense items unrelated to
current period income, as further
described in the tables below. Non-
GAAP-based gross profit is the
arithmetical sum of GAAP-based gross
profit and the amortization of acquired
technology-based intangible assets and
share-based compensation within cost of
sales. Non-GAAP-based gross margin is
calculated as Non-GAAP-based gross
profit expressed as a percentage of
total revenue. Non-GAAP-based income
from operations is calculated as income
from operations, excluding the
amortization of acquired intangible
assets, Special charges (recoveries),
and share-based compensation expense.
Non-GAAP-based operating margin is
calculated as Non-GAAP-based income
from operations expressed as a
percentage of total revenue.
The Company's management believes that
the presentation of the above defined
Non-GAAP financial measures provides
useful information to investors because
they portray the financial results of
the Company before the impact of certain
non-operational charges. The use of the
term "non-operational charge" is
defined for this purpose as an expense
that does not impact the ongoing
operating decisions taken by the
Company's management and is based upon
the way the Company's management
evaluates the performance of the
Company's business for use in the
Company's internal reports. In the
course of such evaluation and for the
purpose of making operating decisions,
the Company's management excludes
certain items from its analysis,
including amortization of acquired
intangible assets, Special charges
(recoveries), share-based compensation,
other income (expense), and the taxation
impact of these items. These items are
excluded based upon the manner in which
management evaluates the business of the
Company and are not excluded in the
sense that they may be used under U.S.
GAAP.
The Company believes the provision of
supplemental Non-GAAP measures allow
investors to evaluate the operational
and financial performance of the
Company's core business using the same
evaluation measures that management
uses, and is therefore a useful
indication of OpenText's performance or
expected performance of future
operations and facilitates period-to-
period comparison of operating
performance (although prior performance
is not necessarily indicative of future
performance). As a result, the Company
considers it appropriate and reasonable
to provide, in addition to U.S. GAAP
measures, supplementary Non-GAAP
financial measures that exclude certain
items from the presentation of its
financial results.

reconciliations of U.S. GAAP-based
financial measures to Non-U.S. GAAP-
based financial measures for the
following periods presented:

Adjustment relates to the exclusion of
share-based compensation expense from
our Non-GAAP-based operating expenses
as this expense is excluded from our
internal analysis of operating results.
(2)
Adjustment relates to the exclusion of
amortization expense from our Non-GAAP-
based operating expenses as the timing
and frequency of amortization expense is
dependent on our acquisitions and is
hence excluded from our internal
analysis of operating results.
(3)
GAAP-based and Non-GAAP-based gross
profit stated in dollars, and gross
margin stated as a percentage of total
revenue.
(4)
Adjustment relates to the exclusion of
Special charges (recoveries) from our
Non-GAAP-based operating expenses as
Special charges (recoveries) are
generally incurred in the periods
following the relevant acquisitions and
include one-time, non-recurring
charges or recoveries that are not
indicative or related to continuing
operations, and are therefore excluded
from our internal analysis of operating
results.
(5)
GAAP-based and Non-GAAP-based income
from operations stated in dollars, and
operating margin stated as a percentage
of total revenue.
(6)
Adjustment relates to the exclusion of
Other income (expense) from our Non-
GAAP-based operating expenses as Other
income (expense) relates primarily to
the transactional impact of foreign
exchange and is generally not indicative
or related to continuing operations and
is therefore excluded from our internal
analysis of operating results. Other
income (expense) also includes our share
of income (losses) from our holdings in
non-marketable securities investments
as a limited partner. We do not actively
trade equity securities in these
privately held companies nor do we plan
our ongoing operations based around any
anticipated fundings or distributions
from these investments. We exclude gains
and losses on these investments as we do
not believe they are reflective of our
ongoing business and operating results.
(7)
Adjustment relates to differences between
the GAAP-based tax recovery rate of
approximately 1,607% and a Non-GAAP-
based tax rate of approximately 15%;
these rate differences are due to the
income tax effects of expenses that are
excluded for the purpose of calculating
Non-GAAP-based adjusted net income.
Such excluded expenses include
amortization, share-based compensation,
Special charges (recoveries) and other
income (expense), net. Also excluded are
tax benefits/expense items unrelated to
current period income such as changes in
reserves for tax uncertainties and
valuation allowance reserves, and "book
to return" adjustments for tax return
filings and tax assessments. Included is
the amount of net tax benefits arising
from the internal reorganization assumed
to be allocable to the current period
based on the forecasted utilization
period. In arriving at our Non-GAAP-
based tax rate of approximately 15%, we
analyzed the individual adjusted
expenses and took into consideration the
impact of statutory tax rates from local
jurisdictions incurring the expense.
