Or Yehuda, Israel, March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Magic Software Enterprises Ltd. (NASDAQ and TASE: MGIC), a global provider of end-to-end integration and application development platform solutions and IT consulting services, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020.

Financial Highlights for the Fourth Quarter Ended December 31, 2020

  • Revenues for the fourth quarter increased 15% to a record-breaking $104.6 million compared to $90.9 million in the same period last year.

  • Non-GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter increased 33% to $15.3 million compared to $11.4 million in the same period last year.

Earnings per share for the fourth quarter of 2020 and 2019 were negatively impacted by accretion charges of $1.3 million and $6.4 million, respectively, with respect to change in the value of outstanding put options of redeemable non-controlling interests.

The Company classifies redeemable non-controlling interests as mezzanine equity, separate from permanent equity on the consolidated balance sheets and measures it at each reporting period at the higher of its redemption amount or the non-controlling interest book value. The changes in the redemption value measured on each reporting period is reported as part of the retained earnings and allocated to earnings for the purpose of calculating the company’s net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders per share.

Excluding the negative impact of the amount charged with respect to the value of outstanding put options of redeemable non-controlling interests, earnings per share for the fourth quarter was $0.13 per fully diluted share compared to $0.10 per fully diluted share in the same period last year.

  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders for the fourth quarter increased 63% to $10.3 million, or $0.21 per fully diluted share, compared to $6.3 million, or $0.13 per fully diluted share, in the same period last year.

Financial Highlights for The Year Ended December 31, 2020

  • Revenues for the year increased 14% to $371.2 million compared to $325.6 million last year.

  • Operating income for the year increased 21% to $40.6 million compared to $33.7 million last year.

  • Non-GAAP operating income for the year increased 20% to $52.6 million compared to $43.9 million in the same period last year.

  • Net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders for the year increased 24% to $25.2 million, or $0.49 per fully diluted share, compared to $20.3 million, or $0.26 per fully diluted share in the same period last year. Earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, were negatively impacted by accretion charges of $1.3 million and $7.4 million, respectively, with respect to the value of outstanding put options of redeemable non-controlling interests.

Excluding the negative impact of the amount charged with respect to the value of outstanding put options of redeemable non-controlling interests, earnings per share for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $0.51 per fully diluted share compared to $0.41 per fully diluted share in the same period last year.

  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders for the year increased 32% to $37.2 million, or $0.76 per fully diluted share, compared to $28.2 million, or $0.58 per fully diluted share, in the same period last year.

  • In accordance with its dividend distribution policy, the Company’s board of directors declared a semi-annual cash dividend for the second half of 2020 in the amount of $0.21 per share and in the aggregate amount of approximately $10.2 million, which together with the dividend distributed for the first half of 2020, reflects 75% of the Company’s net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders for the year.

  • The dividend is payable on April 7, 2021 to all of the Company’s shareholders of record at the close of the NASDAQ Global Select Market on March 25, 2021.

  • In accordance with Israeli tax law, the dividend is subject to withholding tax at source at the rate of 30% (if the recipient of the dividend is at the time of distribution or was at any time during the preceding twelve-month period the holder of 10% or more of the Company’s share capital) or 25% (for all other dividend recipients) of the dividend amount payable to each shareholder of record, subject to applicable exemptions.

  • The dividend will be paid in US dollars on the ordinary shares of Magic Software Enterprises that are traded both on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ Global Select Market.

Guy Bernstein, Chief Executive Officer of Magic Software Enterprises, said:

“I am pleased to report that Magic delivered a strong finish to the year, with record breaking revenues of $104.6 million for the fourth quarter, reflecting 15% increase from the same period last year and exceeding the 100 million-dollar-mark for the first time. The company’s results of operations for the year demonstrate our ability to manage our business during uncertain times introduced by the COVID-19 global pandemic while emerging from it much stronger. As we well managed to execute on our strategy while ensuring our employees’ safety and productivity, controlling our expenses, and improving our financial position.”

“For the full year of 2020, Magic’s revenues increased 14% year over year to $371 million and non-GAAP operating income increased 20% year over year to $53 million. Focusing on growth strategy, offering diversity and an even stronger balance sheet, Magic continues to be well positioned for future success and growth.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: Non-GAAP gross profit, Non-GAAP operating income, Non-GAAP net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders and Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share.

Magic believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Magic’s financial condition and results of operations. Magic’s management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation and for budgeting and planning purposes. These measures are used in financial reports prepared for management and in quarterly financial reports presented to the Company’s board of directors. The Company 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 the Company’s financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. Magic urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

Non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included in the financial tables of this release. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets and other related costs;

  • In-process research and development capitalization and amortization;

  • Equity-based compensation expenses;

  • The related tax, non-controlling interests and redeemable non-controlling interest effects of the above items;

  • Change in valuation of contingent consideration related to acquisitions; and

  • Acquisition-related costs;

Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included in the financial tables of this release.
