Named as a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Content Services Platforms

Open Text Corporation (OTEX, TSX: OTEX), "The Information Company," today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2017.

"OpenText delivered strong first quarter results growing total revenue to $641 million, representing 30% year-over-year growth while delivering $220 million of Adjusted EBITDA, representing 32% year-over-year growth." said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText Vice Chairman, CEO & CTO. "Our Annual Recurring Revenues grew to $489 million, representing 29% year-over-year growth. We are off to a very strong start to the new fiscal year."

"During the quarter, we completed the acquisition of Covisint Corporation and Guidance Software Inc, transitioned to the new SAP HANA S4 ERP platform, delivered Release 16 EP2 and Magellan, and named a leader in Content Services Platforms. M&A remains our leading growth contributor, complemented by organic growth," said Barrenechea.

Barrenechea concluded, "We start with a customer's business needs, and work backwards on a strategy to meet those needs. OpenText has evolved into "The Information Company" enabling customers to manage and unlock the value of their information. Customers are responding well to our expanded Enterprise Information Management (EIM) offerings which now include advance capabilities for Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet-of-Things (IoT), and Information Forensics and Security.

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, attributable to
OpenText, are calculated as GAAP-based
net income or earnings per share,
attributable to OpenText, 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.
Adjusted earnings (loss) before interest,
taxes, depreciation and amortization
(Adjusted EBITDA) is calculated as GAAP-
based net income, attributable to
OpenText, excluding interest income
(expense), provision for income taxes,
depreciation and amortization of
acquired intangible assets, other income
(expense), share-based compensation and
Special charges (recoveries).
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.
The following charts provide (unaudited)
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

Non-GAAP-based operating expenses as
Special charges (recoveries) are
generally incurred in the periods
relevant to an acquisition 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.

(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 provision rate of
approximately 43% 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.
