Earnings Highlights and Summary

For the quarter ended March 31, 2018, Teradata reported revenues of $506 million, up 3% compared to $491 million in Q1 2017. The Company's reported quarter revenue comparison benefited from approximately 4% of foreign currency translation. Teradata's revenue numbers beat analysts' estimates of $496 million.

During Q1 2018, Teradata's recurring revenues were up 11% to $302 million on a y-o-y basis. The Company's Subscription booking mix was 62% in the reported quarter, significantly higher than the anticipated range of 40% - 50%.

For Q1 2018, Teradata's GAAP gross margin was 44.1% versus 45.8% in Q1 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expenses and special items, the Company's gross margin was 48.4% in the reported quarter compared to 51.1% in the prior year's same period.

Teradata's operating loss reported under GAAP was $4 million in Q1 2018 compared to breakeven in Q1 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, the Company's operating income was $35 million in the reported quarter versus $59 million in the prior year's comparable quarter. Teradata's non-GAAP operating income was lower due to the shift to subscription and strategic transformation investments.

Teradata's GAAP tax rate was 12.5% in Q1 2018 compared to 0% in Q1 2017. Excluding special items, the Company's non-GAAP tax rate was 25.8% in the reported quarter versus 35.1% in the prior year's corresponding quarter. The drop in the non-GAAP effective tax rate was largely due to the decrease in the US statutory rate, effective in 2018, as a result of the US tax reform enacted in December 2017.

Teradata reported a US GAAP net loss of $7 million, or $0.06 loss per share, in Q1 2018 compared to a net loss of $2 million, or $0.02 loss per share, in Q1 2017. The Company's non-GAAP net income, excluding stock-based compensation expenses and special items, was $23 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the reported quarter compared to $37 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in the year earlier same quarter. Teradata's earnings surpassed Wall Street's estimates of $0.17 per share.

Cash Matters

Teradata generated cash from operating activities of $184 million in Q1 2018 compared to $248 million in Q1 2017. For the reported quarter, the Company generated free cash flow of $156 million versus $230 million in the prior year's comparable quarter. The decline in cash from operating activities and free cash flow was due to the Company's ongoing transition to subscription-based purchasing options, which resulted in Teradata collecting less cash in the current period as customers pay over time; the higher expense run rate from strategic transformation investments made in the prior year; and timing of cash collections.

Teradata ended Q1 2018 with $939 million in cash. As of March 31, 2018, the Company had a total debt of $525 million, all of which was outstanding under a term loan. Teradata had no borrowings under its $400 million revolving credit facility as of March 31, 2018.

During Q1 2018, Teradata repurchased $76 million of its common stock, or approximately 2.1 million shares.
