REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 22, 2015 - Informatica Corporation (Nasdaq:INFA), the world's number one independent provider of enterprise data integration software and services, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

“In the first quarter of 2015, we delivered on our growth plans with strong results across our diversified portfolio, particularly cloud and big data products,” said Sohaib Abbasi, chairman and chief executive officer, Informatica. “These encouraging early results bode well for our next phase to grow Informatica into a multi-billion dollar company in all things data.”

Financial Highlights for the First Quarter and Year Ended March 31, 2015

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2015 were $250.5 million, an increase of 3 percent from $243.1 million in the first quarter of 2014. Software revenues were $103.7 million, an increase of 1 percent from $103.0 million in the first quarter of 2014, and up 5 percent on a constant currency basis. Within software revenues, license revenues were $82.4 million, down 7 percent year-over-year, and subscription revenues were $21.3 million, up 47 percent year-over-year. Total revenues were negatively impacted by larger than expected currency fluctuations as well as greater than planned deferral of license bookings. Using currency exchange rates from the first quarter of 2014, total revenues would have been $10.6 million higher, subscription revenue would have been $0.6 million higher and software revenue would have been $4.7 million higher.

Income from operations for the first quarter of 2015, calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), was $32.2 million, down 12 percent from $36.8 million in the first quarter of 2014.

GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $21.6 million, down 13 percent from $24.9 million in the first quarter of 2014, and GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.20, down 9 percent from $0.22 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2014.

These non-GAAP results exclude charges and tax benefits related to the amortization of acquired technology and intangible assets, acquisition and other charges, acquisition integration-related tax expenses, professional service fees related to non-routine corporate governance and stockholder matters, and stock-based compensation. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP results is included below.

Deferred revenue for the first quarter of 2015 was $345.4 million, up from $312.1 million in the first quarter for 2014. Using currency exchange rates from the first quarter of 2014, deferred revenue would have been $26.8 million higher, and growth would have been 19 percent in the first quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement Informatica's condensed consolidated financial statements prepared and presented on a GAAP basis, Informatica uses non-GAAP financial measures of constant currency subscription revenues, constant currency software revenues, constant currency total revenues, and constant currency deferred revenues, income from operations, percentage of income from operations to total revenues, net income and net income per share. These measures are adjusted from subscription revenues, software revenues, total revenues, deferred revenues, income from operations, percentage of income from operations to total revenues, net income or net income per share prepared in accordance with GAAP to exclude the charges and expenses discussed below. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, subscription revenues, software revenues, total revenues, deferred revenues, income from operations, net income or net income per share prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Informatica believes the disclosure of such non-GAAP financial measures is appropriate to enhance an overall understanding of its financial performance, its financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period to period comparisons. These adjustments to the Company's GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and investors a more complete understanding of Informatica's performance, by excluding certain expenses and expenditures, such as non-cash charges and discrete charges that are infrequent in nature that may not be indicative of its underlying operating results. In addition, Informatica believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors because they allow for greater transparency into the indicators used by management as a basis for its financial and operational decision making. Informatica believes that the disclosure of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability of its recent financial results with its historical financial results, as well as to the operating results of other companies in Informatica's industry, many of which present non-GAAP financial measures to investors. In addition, Informatica believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures when planning, analyzing and forecasting future periods.

There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, do not reflect a comprehensive system of accounting, may have a material impact on our reported financial results, and exclude some recurring expenses, particularly stock-based compensation. Stock-based compensation will continue to be a significant recurring expense for the foreseeable future and such stock-based compensation is an important part of employees' compensation, which can impact their performance. Informatica's non-GAAP financial measures may differ from those of other companies in our industry due to potential differences in their financing and accounting methods, the book value of their assets, their capital structures, the method by which their assets were acquired and the manner in which they define non-GAAP measures. Furthermore, the items Informatica excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP measures. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management about which charges are excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from non-GAAP measures and evaluating non-GAAP measures together with the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
