 F5 Networks Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal 2017 Results
   Wednesday, October 25, 2017 4:05:05 PM ET

F5 Networks, Inc. (FFIV ) today announced revenue of $538.0 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, up 2.4% from $525.3 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Growth compared with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016 was driven by Services and software based solutions. For fiscal year 2017, revenue was $2.1 billion, up 4.8% from $2.0 billion last year.

GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $135.7 million, or $2.14 per diluted share, compared to $108.9 million, or $1.64 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016. Excluding the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets, restructuring charges, litigation expense, and a non-recurring tax benefit, non-GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 was $154.9 million, or $2.44 per diluted share, compared to $139.9 million, or $2.11 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.

GAAP net income for fiscal year 2017 was $420.8 million, or $6.50 per diluted share, compared to $365.9 million, or $5.38 per diluted share in fiscal year 2016. Non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2017 was $542.9 million, or $8.38 per diluted share, compared to $496.2 million, or $7.30 per diluted share in fiscal year 2016.

A reconciliation of net income, earnings per share, and other measures on a GAAP to non-GAAP basis is included on the attached Consolidated Income Statements.

"We finished fiscal 2017 on a solid note, delivering record fourth quarter and annual revenue and earnings," said Francois Locoh-Donou, F5 President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are excited by the meaningful role we are playing in helping customers solve the complexity of deploying applications across on-premise and multi-cloud environments.

"We continued to see strong customer interest in our virtual edition and application security offerings during the fourth quarter, particularly in public cloud deployments. We expect the growing traction of our software based advanced application services will be a key driver of product revenue in fiscal 2018 and beyond."

For the first quarter of fiscal 2018, ending December 31, 2017, the company has set a revenue goal of $515 million to $525 million with a GAAP earnings target of $1.47 to $1.50 per diluted share and a non-GAAP earnings target of $2.02 to $2.05 per diluted share.

A reconciliation of the company’s expected GAAP and non-GAAP earnings is provided in the following table:

Share Repurchase Program

The company also announced today that its board of directors had authorized an additional $1 billion for the company’s common stock share repurchase program. This new authorization is incremental to the $173.7 million currently unused in the existing program which was initially authorized in October 2010.

Acquisitions for the share repurchase program will be made from time to time in private transactions or open market purchases as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements. The timing and amounts of any purchases will be based on market conditions and other factors including but not limited to price, regulatory requirements and capital availability. The program does not require the purchase of any minimum number of shares and the program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.

GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation

F5’s management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its products, services operations and certain costs of those operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. One such measure is net income excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets and acquisition-related charges, net of taxes, which is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. This measure consists of GAAP net income excluding, as applicable, stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets and acquisition-related charges. This measure of non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company’s tax liability. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that F5 has accounted for since July 1, 2005 in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 718 Compensation--Stock Compensation ("FASB ASC Topic 718"). Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contribute to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to revenues in future periods. Acquisition-related expenses consist of professional services fees incurred in connection with acquisitions. In addition, restructuring charges and a non-recurring foreign tax credit benefit have been excluded from GAAP net income for the purpose of measuring non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share in fiscal 2017, and litigation expenses primarily related to a jury verdict and other associated costs of that patent litigation have been excluded in fiscal 2016 and 2017.

Management believes that non-GAAP net income per share provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the company’s core business operations and facilitates comparisons to the company’s historical operating results. Although F5’s management finds this non-GAAP measure to be useful in evaluating the performance of the core business, management’s reliance on this measure is limited because items excluded from such measures could have a material effect on F5’s earnings and earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, F5’s management will use its non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, in conjunction with GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, to address these limitations when evaluating the performance of the company’s core business. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP.

F5 believes that presenting its non-GAAP measure of earnings and earnings per share provides investors with an additional tool for evaluating the performance of the company’s core business and which management uses in its own evaluation of the company’s performance. Investors are encouraged to look at GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance. However, while the GAAP results are more complete, the company provides investors this supplemental measure since, with reconciliation to GAAP, it may provide additional insight into the company’s operational performance and financial results.

For reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the section in our Consolidated Income Statements entitled "Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
