In our second quarter, we recorded a charge of $579,000, net of related tax effects, to recognize compensation expense related to share-based awards as required under Financial Accounting Standards No. 123(R). In addition, we undertook a targeted restructuring of our business to reduce costs and streamline operations which resulted in a charge of $1.3 million, net of related tax effects, primarily related to severance costs. Excluding the impact of these charges and their related tax effects, net income for the second quarter of fiscal 2006 was $1.8 million, or $0.15 per diluted share. Net loss for the second quarter, as reported under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), was $109,000, or ($0.01) per share.
In discussing the second quarter of fiscal 2006, Roland Thomas, Moldflow Corporation's president and CEO said, "I am pleased to report on the results for our second fiscal quarter of 2006 which were within our stated guidance range for both revenue and earnings. Our revenue, at the lower end of our expected range, was affected by unfavorable currency movements during the quarter, specifically in relation to the Yen and Euro. Strong revenue growth in our high gross margin Design Analysis Solutions business and an increase in the gross margin of our Manufacturing Solutions business, however, allowed us to achieve a non-GAAP earnings result in the mid-range of our guidance.
Thomas continued, "During the second quarter, we saw our European region produce results that were very positive when compared to recent trends. Sales in Europe were driven largely by investments in our Moldflow Plastics Insight suite of products as well as our traditional shop floor, or real time performance management, products by manufacturers in the automotive and medical markets. In our Asia Pacific region, specifically Korea, we saw robust sales of our Design Analysis Solutions products into many companies working in the electronics industry. Finally, in the Americas region, we experienced some softness across both product lines. We were pleased to see sales to many world leading manufacturers in every region we serve, with significant investments in Moldflow products being made by Foxconn, TRW, Boston Scientific, Millipore, Peugeot Citroen Automobiles and Smiths Plastics Pty. Ltd. in South Africa."
"On the product development front, I am pleased to note that we launched version 6.0 of our Moldflow Plastics Insight product. This major release features an entirely new technology base for this suite of products which will not only secure our position as the technology leader for customers who are working in 3D applications, but will also set the standard in the market for speed and accuracy in CAE simulations for injection molded parts." Thomas concluded.
Second Quarter Financial Highlights:
- Total revenue of $16.9 million increased 4% over the same period in the prior year and 11% sequentially.
- Total product revenue of $10.1 million increased 5% over the same period of the prior year and 15% sequentially.
- Services revenue, primarily comprised of revenue from annual maintenance and support contracts, was $6.8 million, an increase of 2% over the same period of the prior year and 4% sequentially.
- Revenue from the Design Analysis Solutions segment represented 75% of total revenue and was $12.7 million, a 4% increase when compared to the same period last year and a 12% sequential increase.
- Revenue from the Manufacturing Solutions segment totaled $4.2 million, contributing 25% of total revenue, and represented a 3% increase when compared to the same period last year and a 6% sequential increase.
- Regionally, revenue in Europe represented 39% of total revenue, while revenue in the Asia/Pacific and Americas regions represented 31% and 30% of total revenue, respectively.
The current business outlook is based on information as of February 2, 2006 and is current as of that day only.
We have recently achieved some important milestones in the development of the business, however, based on the results achieved in the first half of fiscal 2006 and the continued unfavorable currency movements, we are taking further steps to conservatively forecast our revenue plan. Therefore, our guidance for the third fiscal quarter and the remainder of fiscal year 2006 reflects this more cautious approach. We expect revenue for the third fiscal quarter of 2006 to grow between 12% and 21% when compared to the same quarter last year and non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be between $0.16 and $0.23. This non-GAAP net income number excludes an expected net charge for share-based compensation in the third quarter of approximately $450,000. We expect our full fiscal 2006 year revenue to grow between 8% and 12% when compared to fiscal 2005, with non-GAAP net income per diluted share to be in the range of $0.60 and $0.73. This non-GAAP net income number excludes an expected charge for share-based compensation expense in the full fiscal year of approximately $2.0 million, net of related tax effects, and the effect of the restructuring charge of $1.3 million, net of related tax effects, taken in the second fiscal quarter. On a GAAP basis, we expect net income per diluted share in the third quarter to be between $0.11 and $0.18 and for the fiscal year to be between $0.32 and $0.47.
Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Net income per diluted share, excluding share-based compensation expense, as well as net income per diluted share excluding share-based compensation expense and restructuring charges are supplemental non-GAAP financial measures. Moldflow is presenting these measures because management uses this information in evaluating the results of the Company's operations and believes that this information provides additional insight into our operating results, as well as enables comparison of these results to prior periods. These measures should not be considered an alternative to measurements required by GAAP, such as net income (loss) and net income (loss) per diluted share, and should not be considered measures of our liquidity. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. With respect to non-GAAP financial measures for the second quarter of fiscal year 2006 and the forecast of such measures for the third quarter and full fiscal year, the GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure used or discussed in this press release and a reconciliation of the differences between each non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure are included in this press release and can be found on the Investors page of the Moldflow corporate Web site at http://www.moldflow.com/stp/english/investors/index.htm.
