  • Public cloud ARR increased by $79 million, or 176% from the prior year period, exceeding the outlook of at least 165% year-over-year(1)

  • Cash from operations of $110 million, an increase of $100 million from the prior year period

  • Free cash flow of $105 million, an increase of $107 million from the prior year period(2)

  • First-quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.47 above the previously provided outlook range of $0.11 to $0.13

  • First-quarter non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.69 above the previously provided outlook range of $0.38 to $0.40(3)

Teradata (NYSE: TDC) today announced its first-quarter 2021 financial results.

"Teradata had a strong start to the year exceeding expectations across key metrics with significant growth in public cloud ARR, profitability, and free cash flow. Our relentless focus on profitable growth, coupled with the strength of Vantage, is driving our performance and positioning Teradata to win over the long-term," said Steve McMillan, President and CEO, Teradata. "The momentum for our connected, multi-cloud data platform for enterprise analytics continues to grow, demonstrating that our pivot to the cloud is the right strategy for Teradata."

Realignment of ARR and revenue starting at the beginning of fiscal 2021

As disclosed in Q4 2020, Teradata realigned its ARR and recurring revenue disclosures at the beginning of fiscal 2021. The realignment removes managed services and third-party software from subscription-based ARR and recurring revenue. Managed services revenue is included in "consulting services revenue" and third-party software is included in "perpetual software licenses, hardware and other revenue." This realignment does not change previously reported total revenue or total gross profit.

Tables that show the impact of this realignment to ARR, total revenue and gross profits for each quarter of 2020 and the full year are included in the Q4/FY 2020 Earnings Discussion document, which is available on the Investor Relations page of Teradata’s website at investor.teradata.com. Please also see the Q1 2021 supplemental financial schedules for a trended view of realigned revenue, which is also available on the Investor Relations page of Teradata’s website.

Annual recurring revenue (ARR) is defined as the annual value at a point in time of all recurring contracts, including subscription, cloud, software upgrade rights, and maintenance. ARR does not include managed services and third-party software.

**

Public cloud ARR is defined as the annual value at a point in time of all contracts related to public cloud implementations of Teradata Vantage and does not include ARR related to private or managed cloud implementations.

2.

As described below, the Company believes that free cash flow is a useful non-GAAP measure for investors. Teradata defines free cash flow as cash provided by / used in operating activities, less capital expenditures for property and equipment, and additions to capitalized software. Free cash flow does not have a uniform definition under GAAP and therefore, Teradata’s definition may differ from other companies’ definitions of this measure. Teradata’s management uses free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the Company and believes it is useful for investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the Company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash generated after capital expenditures for, among other things, investment in the Company’s existing businesses, strategic acquisitions, strengthening the Company’s balance sheet, repurchase of the Company’s stock and repayment of the Company’s debt obligations, if any. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since there may be other nondiscretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. This non-GAAP measure is not meant to be considered in isolation to, as a substitute for, or superior to, results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Teradata reports its results in accordance with GAAP. However, as described below, the Company believes that certain non-GAAP measures such as non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, or EPS, all of which exclude certain items (as well as free cash flow) are useful for investors. Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation to, as substitutes for, or superior to, results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Each of our non-GAAP measures do not have a uniform definition under GAAP and therefore, Teradata’s definition may differ from other companies’ definitions of these measures.

The following tables reconcile Teradata’s actual and projected results and EPS under GAAP to the Company’s actual and projected non-GAAP results and EPS for the periods presented, which exclude certain specified items. Our management internally uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross profit, operating income, net income, and EPS, excluding certain items, to understand, manage and evaluate our business and support operating decisions on a regular basis. The Company believes such non-GAAP financial measures (1) provide useful information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations, (2) are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations and results, that may be more easily compared to peer companies and allow investors a view of the Company’s operating results excluding stock-based compensation expense and special items, (3) provide useful information to management and investors regarding present and future business trends, and (4) provide consistency and comparability with past reports and projections of future results.

Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share

$0.47 - $0.49

$1.61 - $1.67

  1. The Company’s GAAP effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2020 includes $157 million of discrete tax benefit related to an intra-entity asset transfer of certain of its intellectual property to one of its Irish subsidiaries, which occurred on January 1, 2020. The one-time tax benefit for this intra-entity asset transfer of $157 million was recorded as a deferred tax asset for GAAP reporting purposes in the first quarter of 2020 but was excluded from non-GAAP results.

  2. The Company’s forecasted full-year 2020 GAAP marginal effective tax rate included $3 million of tax expense related to tax contingencies pursuant to FIN 48. For GAAP purposes, this is a component of the marginal rate and is recognized as tax benefit or expense based on the Company’s reported GAAP pre-tax income or loss for the quarter. To more accurately reflect the impact of the expense on a quarterly basis for non-GAAP purposes, the $3 million of tax expense was recognized ratably each quarter instead of being included in the marginal effective rate.

  3. Represents the income tax effect of the pre-tax adjustments to reconcile GAAP to Non-GAAP income based on the applicable jurisdictional statutory tax rate of the underlying item. Including the income tax effect assists investors in understanding the tax provision associated with those adjustments and the effective tax rate related to the underlying business and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations. As a result of these adjustments, the Company’s non-GAAP effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was 26.4% and March 31, 2020 was 25.0%.

In addition, GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliation of prior 2021 FY outlook non-GAAP diluted earnings per share is included in the Company’s Q4/FY 2020 Earnings Release dated February 4, 2021, which is available on the Investor Relations page of Teradata’s website at investor.teradata.com.
