Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT) today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"We delivered another quarter of solid results, highlighted by double digit constant currency revenue growth," said Sanjay Mirchandani, President and CEO. "We believe customers will continue to prioritize our best in class data protection and management solutions as they embrace the cloud and hybrid IT. We are confident in our strategy."

Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 were $198.0 million, an increase of 8% year over year. On a year over year constant currency basis, total revenue growth would have been 13%. Total recurring revenue was $170.8 million, an increase of 20% year over year. On a year over year constant currency basis, total recurring revenue growth would have been 25%. Recurring revenue represented a record 86% of total revenue.

Annualized recurring revenue (ARR), which is the annualized value of all active Commvault recurring revenue streams at the end of the reporting period, was $594.5 million as of June 30, 2022, up 12% from June 30, 2021. On a year over year constant currency basis, ARR growth would have been 16%.

Software and products revenue was $92.4 million, an increase of 13% year over year.  The year over year increase in software and products revenue was driven by a 24% increase in larger deals (deals with greater than $0.1 million in software and products revenue). On a year over year constant currency basis, software and products revenue growth would have been 17%.

Larger deal revenue represented 75% of our software and products revenue in the three months ended June 30, 2022.  The number of larger deal revenue transactions was 184 deals for the three months ended June 30, 2022, compared to 185 deals for the three months ended June 30, 2021. The average dollar amount of larger deal revenue transactions was approximately $379,000, representing a 24% increase from the prior year.

Services revenue in the quarter was $105.5 million, an increase of 4% year over year.  Services revenue continues to grow primarily due to the increase in Metallic software-as-a-service revenue.

On a GAAP basis, income from operations (EBIT) was $7.4 million for the first quarter compared to $15.5 million in the prior year.  Non-GAAP EBIT was $40.6 million in the quarter compared to $41.0 million in the prior year.

Operating cash flow totaled $22.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2023 compared to $37.2 million in the prior year quarter.  Total cash was $258.7 million as of June 30, 2022 compared to $267.5 million as of March 31, 2022.

During the first quarter of fiscal 2023, Commvault repurchased approximately 310,000 shares of its common stock totaling $18.9 million at an average price of approximately $61.10 per share.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in Financial Statement Table IV included in this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Commvault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and annualized recurring revenue (ARR).  This financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Commvault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions.  In addition, Commvault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating Commvault's ongoing operational performance.  Commvault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Commvault's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community.  Commvault has also provided software and products, services and total revenues on a constant currency basis. Commvault analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

All of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV included in this press release.

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) and related payroll tax expense incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards, restructuring costs, the noncash amortization of intangible assets and certain costs related to key employees of Hedvig. These expenses are further discussed in Table IV.  Commvault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare Commvault's core operating results over multiple periods.  When evaluating the performance of Commvault's operating results and developing short- and long-term plans, Commvault does not consider such expenses.

Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, Commvault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans.  Commvault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between Commvault's operating results and those of other companies.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin.  The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature.  Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in Commvault's operating results.  In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of Commvault's employees' compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance. Lastly, the components that Commvault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.

Due to the limitations related to the use of non-GAAP measures, Commvault's management assists investors by providing a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, Commvault's management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS).  In addition to the adjustments discussed in non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS incorporates a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%.

Commvault anticipates that in any given period its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations. The GAAP tax rates in recent fiscal years were not meaningful percentages due to the dollar amount of GAAP pre-tax income.  For the same reason as the GAAP tax rates, the estimated cash tax rates in recent fiscal years are not meaningful percentages. Commvault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income. Over time, Commvault believes its GAAP and cash tax rates will align.

Commvault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for Commvault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that Commvault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to Commvault's use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.

              footnote three.




(2)


Represents additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in-the-money stock
options or vest in restricted stock awards.




(3)


In recent fiscal years, Commvault initiated restructuring plans to increase efficiency in its sales, marketing and distribution functions as
well as reduce costs across all functional areas.  These restructuring charges relate primarily to severance and related costs associated
with headcount reductions, as well as the closure of offices. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2022, Commvault initiated a restructuring
plan to combine the management of its EMEA and APJ field operations. Restructuring includes stock-based compensation related to
modifications of awards granted to former employees.  Management believes, when used as a supplement to GAAP results, that the
exclusion of these charges will help investors and financial analysts understand Commvault's operating results and
underlying operational trends as compared to prior periods.




(4)


Represents noncash amortization of intangible assets.




(5)


In connection with the acquisition of Hedvig Inc., certain Hedvig shareholders received cash payments for the 30 months following the
date of acquisition, subject to their continued employment with Commvault.  While these payments were proportionate to these
shareholders' ownership of Hedvig, under GAAP they are accounted for as compensation expense within research and development
expenses over the course of the 30 month service period.  Management believes, when used as a supplement to GAAP results, that
the exclusion of these non-routine expenses will help investors and financial analysts understand Commvault's operating results and
underlying operational trends as compared to prior periods. These payments were completed in fiscal 2022.

The provision for income taxes is adjusted to reflect Commvault's estimated non-GAAP effective tax rate of 27%.

This table includes the following financial metrics that are derived from Commvault's GAAP recognized revenue:






Subscription software and products revenue - The amounts included on this line include the software and product portion of a) non-
cancellable term-based, or subscription, licenses that expire at the end of the contractual term; and b) "pay-as-you-go" utility
arrangements based on product usage that are structured with no guaranteed minimums.  These revenues are included in software
and products revenue on Commvault's consolidated statement of operations.






Perpetual software and products revenue - The amounts included on this line are primarily associated with revenue from the sale of
perpetual software licenses.  These revenues are included in software and products revenue on Commvault's consolidated statement
of operations.






Recurring support and services revenue - The amounts included on this line consist primarily of maintenance and support revenues
associated with the sale of both subscription and perpetual software arrangements. This revenue is included in services revenue on
Commvault's consolidated statement of operations. This line also includes revenue from Metallic contracts.






Non-recurring services revenue - The amounts included on this line are primarily revenues associated with Commvault's installation
and consultation services.  These revenues are included in services revenue on Commvault's consolidated statement of operations.






Management believes that reviewing these metrics, in addition to GAAP results, helps investors and financial analysts understand the
recurring nature of certain revenue amounts and trends as compared to prior periods. 






Note that nearly all of Commvault's software and product revenue is related to solutions that are run in the customer's environment. As
a result, as required under ASC 606, substantially all of Commvault's software and product revenue is recognized at a point in time,
when it is delivered to the customer, and not ratably over the course of a contractual period. This is the case for both perpetual software
licenses and subscription software licenses. Metallic revenue is recognized over time as services revenue.

Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) is defined as the annualized recurring value of all active contracts at the end of a reporting
period.  It includes the following contract types: subscription agreements (including utility), maintenance contracts related to perpetual
licenses, other extended maintenance contracts (enterprise support), managed services, and Metallic.  It excludes any element of the
deal arrangement that is not expected to recur, primarily perpetual licenses and most professional services.  Contracts are annualized
by dividing the total contract value by the number of days in the contract term, then multiplying by 365.






ARR should be viewed independently of GAAP revenue, deferred revenue and unbilled revenue and is not intended to be combined
with or to replace those items. ARR is not a forecast of future revenue. Management believes that reviewing this metric, in addition to
GAAP results, helps investors and financial analysts understand the value of Commvault's recurring revenue streams versus prior
periods.

The change in foreign exchange rates from March 31, 2022 to June 30, 2022 reduced ARR by approximately $15 million. The foreign
exchange rate impact from June 30, 2021 to June 30, 2022 was approximately $25 million.

Beginning in fiscal 2023, Commvault combined the management of its EMEA and APJ field organizations into one International region
(Europe, Middle East, Africa, Australia, Japan, Southeast Asia, China). The Americas region includes the United States, Canada, and
Latin America.

Revenues on a constant currency basis are calculated using the average foreign exchange rates from a previous period and applying
these rates to foreign-denominated revenues in the corresponding period of fiscal 2023. The difference between revenue calculated
based on these foreign exchange rates and revenues calculated in accordance with GAAP is listed as adjustment for currency impact
in the tables above.
