RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Red Hat, Inc. (RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2015 first quarter ended May 31, 2014.

Total revenue for the quarter was $424 million, an increase of 17% in U.S. dollars from the year ago quarter, and 17% measured in constant currency. Constant currency references in this release are as detailed in the tables below. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $372 million, up 18% in U.S. dollars year-over-year, or 17% measured in constant currency.

“Our strong start to FY15 is a direct result of our ability to consistently deliver meaningful value to enterprise customers,” stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. “We now count 94% of the Fortune 500 and 90% of the Fortune Global 500 as customers. These are some of the most sophisticated IT organizations in the world, and many continue to increase their purchases from Red Hat to modernize their IT infrastructure with cloud enabling technologies. As evidence of this demand and Red Hat’s strong market position, we closed a record number of first quarter deals of a million dollars or more.”

GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $51 million, down 10% year-over-year. After adjusting for stock compensation, amortization expenses and transaction costs related to business combinations, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter was $88 million, up 2% year-over-year. For the first quarter, GAAP operating margin was 12.0% and non-GAAP operating margin was 20.8%.

GAAP net income for the quarter was $38 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, compared with $40 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. After adjusting for stock compensation, amortization expenses and transaction costs related to business combinations, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $64 million, or $0.34 per diluted share, as compared to $62 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter.

Operating cash flow was $165 million for the first quarter, as compared to $142 million in the year ago quarter. At quarter end, the company’s total deferred revenue balance was $1.27 billion, an increase of 20% on a year-over-year basis. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of May 31, 2014 was $1.40 billion after repurchasing approximately $80 million, or approximately 1.6 million shares, of common stock in the first quarter.

“Our global sales organization continued to execute at a high level during Q1, leading to double digit growth in every region. This execution, combined with the cross-selling of our expanded portfolio of innovative technologies, contributed to organic subscription revenue growth of 18% and operating cash flow growth of 16%, all of which were above the high-end of our guidance,” stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat.
