Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq: CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2014.
Non-GAAP net income for the year was $111.0 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $87.8 million, or $0.40 per diluted share in fiscal 2013. GAAP net income for the year was $71.6 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to ($17.3) million, or ($0.08) per share in the year-ago period.
Non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $22.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $18.2 million, or $0.08 per diluted share in the year-ago period. GAAP net income for the fourth quarter was $20.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to ($63.7) million, or ($0.30) per share in the year-ago period.
(Included in the financial tables is a reconciliation between non-GAAP and GAAP results.)
“The key takeaways from our fiscal 2014 results are that our core APM and Mainframe businesses have strengthened and are getting stronger. Also, we have made tremendous progress on our cost rationalization initiative, exceeding our expense-reduction goal by 25 percent for the year,” said Compuware CEO Bob Paul. “We are now focused on building on this momentum in fiscal 2015 by continuing to drive growth and profitability in APM while further stabilizing Mainframe; completing our comprehensive business optimization work; and delivering even greater return to shareholders through additional capital return opportunities.
“I am extremely pleased with the substantial progress we continue to make in our strategic restructuring,” continued Paul. “We are now in the final stage of our transformational journey and, as a logical and final step in the process, we are exploring the feasibility of separating our APM and Mainframe operations, which we believe would allow these very distinct businesses competing in diverse market categories to build on their leadership positions and thrive as independent entities. We believe the rationale for such a separation is very compelling for everyone involved—including shareholders, customers and employees—in terms of return, value and opportunity. We will have more to report on this possibility in future periods as our due diligence progresses.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the Company's results as determined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company has also disclosed in this press release and the accompanying tables the following non-GAAP information: (a) non-GAAP net income and (b) non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. Each of these financial measures excludes the impact of certain items and, therefore, has not been calculated in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude share-based compensation expense; the amortization of intangible assets; a goodwill impairment charge; restructuring charges; advisory fees associated with certain shareholder actions; the related tax impacts of these items; and the gain on divestiture, net of tax. Each of the non-GAAP adjustments is described in more detail below. This press release also contains a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP measures to its most comparable GAAP financial measure.
We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating results because they exclude amounts that management and the board of directors do not consider part of core operating results when assessing the performance of the organization. We believe that inclusion of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with past reports of financial results and provides consistency in calculations by outside analysts reviewing our results. Accordingly, we believe these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency of supplemental information used by management.
While we believe that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information, there are limitations associated with the use of these non-GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting and may not be completely comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to potential differences in the exact method of calculation between companies. Items such as share-based compensation expense; the amortization of intangible assets; a goodwill impairment charge; restructuring charges; advisory fees associated with certain shareholder actions; the related tax impacts of these items; and the gain on divestiture, net of tax that are excluded from our non-GAAP financial measures can have a material impact on net earnings. As a result, these non-GAAP financial measures have limitations and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net earnings, cash flow from operations or other measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. We compensate for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures that are included elsewhere in this press release.
The following discusses the reconciling items from our non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures:
Share-based compensation expense. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the compensation expenses required to be recorded by GAAP for equity awards to employees and directors. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding expenses related to share-based compensation, because these costs are generally fixed at the time an award is granted, are then expensed over several years and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management once granted.
Amortization of intangible assets. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude costs associated with the amortization of intangible assets. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding amortization of intangible assets, because these costs are fixed at the time of an acquisition, are then amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition.
Goodwill impairment charge. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude an impairment charge associated with a decline in the estimated fair value of our professional services business unit. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding goodwill impairment to provide comparability and consistency with historical operating results.
Restructuring charges. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude restructuring charges, and any subsequent changes in estimates, as they relate to our corporate restructuring and exit activities, including asset impairments resulting from a fourth quarter fiscal 2013 operational review. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding restructuring charges, in order to provide comparability and consistency with historical operating results.
Advisory fees associated with certain shareholder actions. During the third quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company received an unsolicited, nonbinding offer to purchase the outstanding shares of the Company from a shareholder. The Company has incurred costs of approximately $3 million for unplanned consultant fees to review the offer, analyze the business and review additional requests for information from other interested parties. Management and the board of directors believe it is useful in evaluating corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, excluding such costs, in order to provide comparability and consistency with historical operating results.
Provision for income taxes on above pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the tax impact of the above pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments. This amount is calculated using the tax rates of each country to which these pre-tax non-GAAP adjustments relate. Management excludes the non-GAAP adjustments on a net-of-tax basis in evaluating our performance. Therefore, we exclude the tax impact of these charges when presenting non-GAAP financial measures.
Gain on divestiture of business segments, net of tax. Our non-GAAP financial measures exclude the gain from the divestiture of our Changepoint, Professional Services and Uniface business segments, net of tax. This gain is included in “Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax” in the statements of operations. This gain is not comparable to activity in the other periods presented. We believe it is useful in evaluation corporate performance during a particular time period to review the supplemental non-GAAP financial measures excluding the effect of this gain in order to provide comparability and consistency with historical results.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
