Business Perspective

“Through Q3, Pegasystems showed a 34 percent year-to-date growth in software license revenue, which is significantly higher than industry growth forecasts for our segments,” said Alan Trefler, Founder and CEO of Pegasystems. “Our better business software is helping leading organizations build and evolve their critical business solutions. We are delighted by the enthusiastic feedback regarding the increased capability and ease of use in our Pega 7 release. Our October acquisition of Antenna Software, a recognized industry leader in mobile application development platforms, is indicative of our ongoing commitment to market leadership. Empowering our unique, unified and fully model-driven architecture to deliver and manage omni-channel customer engagement with smart process mobile apps will further differentiate Pega from its competitors.”

Rafe Brown, Pegasystems' CFO, added, “In addition to strong top-line growth, the Company delivered operating cash flow of $83.4 million year to date, up 187 percent over the same period last year. Year-to-date earnings per share jumped to $0.88 per diluted share on a Non-GAAP basis related in part to a slightly higher than expected ratio of perpetual license revenue recognized in the current quarter.”

 

Antenna Acquisition Impact

The Company expects Antenna’s fourth quarter 2013 operations will reduce the Company’s earnings by approximately $0.03 - $0.05 per share on a Non-GAAP basis.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the U.S. (“GAAP”), the Company provides Non-GAAP measures, including in this release. Pegasystems’ management utilizes a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and Non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of the business, for making operating decisions, and for forecasting and planning for future periods. The Company’s annual financial plan is prepared both on a GAAP and Non-GAAP basis, and both are approved by our board of directors. In addition and as a consequence of the importance of these measures in managing the business, the Company uses Non-GAAP measures and financial performance results in the evaluation process to establish management’s compensation.

The Non-GAAP measures exclude amortization of intangible assets, stock-based compensation, acquisition-related costs and relocation expenses associated with the move of our office headquarters. The Company believes that these Non-GAAP measures are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and our anticipated future results. These Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the Company’s GAAP to Non-GAAP measures is included in the financial schedules at the end of this release.
