Accelrys Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2008 Financial ResultsSan Diego, CA | Posted on November 1st, 2007
Accelrys, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACCL) today reported financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended September 30, 2007.
“This quarter included several financial and operational achievements for Accelrys,” said Mark Emkjer, Accelrys President and Chief Executive Officer. “We had another successful financial quarter, again showing increased profitability on a year over year basis. We also continued to leverage our scientific operating platform to develop scientific business intelligence solutions aimed at serving our markets. In addition, we completed the modernization of our life science modeling and simulations product line with the launch of Discovery Studio 2.0, which has been very well received and expands our scientific leadership role in the marketplace. Finally, we entered into a strategic relationship with Agilent Technologies, significantly expanding our distribution network to several new markets. We believe these achievements will provide growth opportunities in the coming quarters.”
Revenue for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 was $19.7 million, compared to revenue of $20.2 million for the same quarter of the previous year. Revenue in the current quarter was impacted by reduced revenues from de-emphasized products, partially offset by continued growth in the solutions and services surrounding the Company’s scientific operating platform product line.
Non-GAAP operating income was $2.6 million for the current quarter, which was slightly higher than non-GAAP operating income for the same quarter of the previous year. On a GAAP basis, operating income for the current quarter was $1.3 million, a 49% increase over GAAP operating income of $0.8 million for the same quarter of the previous year. Operating income on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis was favorably impacted in the current quarter by savings realized in connection with cost control measures implemented in previous periods, partially offset by increased personnel related costs associated with our expanded sales organization.
Non-GAAP net income was $3.0 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the current quarter, a 13% increase from non-GAAP net income of $2.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the same quarter of the previous year. On a GAAP basis, the Company reported net income of $1.6 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the current quarter, a 75% increase from GAAP net income of $0.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same quarter of the previous year. Net income on both a GAAP and non-GAAP basis was favorably impacted in the current quarter by both the savings realized in operating income noted above and increased interest income due to higher interest rates and cash balances in this quarter versus the second quarter of the prior year.
At September 30, 2007, the Company had total cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities of $64.9 million, an increase of $3.7 million from the same quarter of the previous year.
