Teradata Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Second-quarter results exceeded Company expectations on key revenue, profit and cash flow metrics
Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) increased 8% reported and 9% in constant currency(1) from the same period of the prior year
Second-quarter recurring revenue of $358 million exceeded Company’s guidance range
In the second quarter, operating cash flow improved to $130 million and free cash flow totaled $115 million(2)

SAN DIEGO August 6, 2020 -- Teradata Corp. (NYSE: TDC) today announced its second-quarter 2020 financial results. The Company successfully navigated through an uncertain macro environment to exceed its targets, despite business trends impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. ARR increased 8% reported and 9% in constant currency(1), from the prior-year period. Recurring revenue increased 6%, 8% in constant currency(1), from the second quarter of 2019. In the quarter, both perpetual and consulting revenues declined, as expected compared to the second quarter of 2019, as the company shifted to a recurring revenue model and focused its consulting resources on higher-margin engagements that drive increased software consumption within its targeted customer base. Additionally, consulting revenue was impacted by incremental COVID-19-related headwinds in the quarter. Total second-quarter revenue was $457 million, a decrease as expected compared to 2019 second-quarter total revenue of $478 million. Currency translation had a one percentage point negative impact on the second-quarter total revenue comparison(1).

Teradata reported 2020 second-quarter net loss of $(43) million under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), or $(0.40) per share, which compared to a net loss of $(1) million, or $(0.01) per share, in the second quarter of 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, which excludes stock-based compensation expense and other special items, 2020 second-quarter net income was $26 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, as compared to $34 million, or $0.29 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2019(3).

“Teradata executed well in the quarter, exceeding expectations for our key metrics and delivering robust ARR growth, strong recurring revenue growth, significant free cash flow, and solid earnings per share, despite the uncertainties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Teradata team demonstrated great resiliency and pivoted quickly and smoothly to support our customers and advance our business, regardless of physical constraints,” said Steve McMillan, President and CEO, Teradata. “Our strong relationships with our stable customer base, combined with our deeply rooted dedication to delivering outstanding business value, are serving us well during these unprecedented times. As we accelerate our cloud efforts, we are listening to the market and our customers, responding with speed and agility, and ensuring we are providing value for our customers, supporting our people and delivering on our expectations.”

Gross Margin

2020 second-quarter gross margin reported under GAAP was 56.0% versus 49.4% for the second quarter of 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, 2020 second-quarter gross margin was 58.9%, versus 52.7% in the prior-year period(3). The gross margin rate was higher year-over-year due to the continued mix shift towards higher-margin recurring revenues, as well as improved perpetual and consulting margins.

Operating Income
2020 second-quarter operating income reported under GAAP was $8 million compared to $10 million in the second quarter of 2019. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, 2020 second-quarter operating income was $64 million versus $51 million in the second quarter of 2019(3). The increase in non-GAAP operating income was due to the improved gross margins referenced above, as well as expense management measures instituted in response to the uncertainty of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Income Taxes
Teradata’s 2020 second-quarter tax rate under GAAP was (1,333.3%) compared to 120.0% in the second quarter of 2019. Excluding special items, Teradata’s non-GAAP 2020 second-quarter tax rate was 50.9% versus 26.1% in the second quarter of 2019(3). The increase in the tax rate period-over-period was driven by the impact of discrete tax items recognized in the quarter and the timing of earnings throughout the year.

Cash Flow
During the second quarter of 2020, Teradata generated $130 million of cash from operating activities compared to $55 million in the same period of 2019. The Company’s transition to a subscription-based model changes the timing of billings and cash collections, therefore year-over-year comparisons may be less meaningful than in prior years. During the quarter, Teradata used $15 million for capital expenditures and additions to capitalized software development costs, versus using $13 million in the second quarter of 2019. Teradata’s 2020 second-quarter free cash flow was $115 million, compared to $42 million in the second quarter of 2019(2). Strong cash collections, some of which slipped out of the 2020 first quarter due to late March shelter-in-place orders, contributed to a very strong cash flow quarter.

Balance Sheet
Teradata ended the second quarter of 2020 with $494 million in cash. During the second quarter of 2020, Teradata did not repurchase any shares of its common stock as the Company suspended its buyback program to conserve cash amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Year-to-date, the Company repurchased 3.7 million shares for approximately $75 million. At the end of the second quarter, Teradata had approximately 108.9 million shares outstanding.

As of June 30, 2020, the Company had total debt of $613 million, including $144 million of outstanding finance lease obligations. There were no funds drawn on the company’s $400 million revolving credit facility as of June 30, 2020.

For the third quarter of 2020, Teradata expects recurring revenue between $359 million and $361 million.

GAAP loss / earnings per share in the third quarter of 2020 is expected to be in the range of $(0.03) and $0.00. Non-GAAP earnings per share, excluding stock-based compensation expense and other special items, in the third quarter is expected to be in the $0.28 to $0.31 range.

Earnings Conference Call
A conference call is scheduled today at 2:00 p.m. PT to discuss the Company’s 2020 second-quarter results and provide a business and financial update. Access to the conference call, as well as a replay of the conference call, is available on Teradata’s website at

2.As described below, the Company believes that free cash flow is a useful non-GAAP measure for investors. Teradata defines free cash flow as cash provided by / used in operating activities, less capital expenditures for property and equipment, and additions to capitalized software. Free cash flow does not have a uniform definition under GAAP and therefore, Teradata’s definition may differ from other companies’ definitions of this measure. Teradata’s management uses free cash flow to assess the financial performance of the Company and believes it is useful for investors because it relates the operating cash flow of the Company to the capital that is spent to continue and improve business operations. In particular, free cash flow indicates the amount of cash generated after capital expenditures for, among other things, investment in the Company’s existing businesses, strategic acquisitions, strengthening the Company’s balance sheet, repurchase of the Company’s stock and repayment of the Company’s debt obligations, if any. Free cash flow does not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures since there may be other nondiscretionary expenditures that are not deducted from the measure. This non-GAAP measure is not meant to be considered in isolation to, as a substitute for, or superior to, results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

3.Teradata reports its results in accordance with GAAP. However, as described below, the Company believes that certain non-GAAP measures such as non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share, or EPS, all of which exclude certain items (as well as free cash flow) are useful for investors. Our non-GAAP measures are not meant to be considered in isolation to, as substitutes for, or superior to, results determined in accordance with GAAP, and should be read only in conjunction with our condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The following tables reconcile Teradata’s actual and projected results and EPS under GAAP to the Company’s actual and projected non-GAAP results and EPS for the periods presented, which exclude certain specified items. Our management internally uses supplemental non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross profit, operating income, net income and EPS, excluding certain items, to understand, manage and evaluate our business and support operating decisions on a regular basis. The Company believes such non-GAAP financial measures (1) provide useful information to investors regarding the underlying business trends and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations, (2) are useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations and results, that may be more easily compared to peer companies and allow investors a view of the Company’s operating results excluding stock-based compensation expense and special items, (3) provide useful information to management and investors regarding present and future business trends, and (4) provide consistency and comparability with past reports and projections of future results.

1.The Company’s GAAP effective tax rate for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 includes $156 million of discrete tax benefit related to an intra-entity asset transfer of certain of its intellectual property to one of its Irish subsidiaries, which occurred on January 1, 2020. The one-time tax benefit for this intra-entity asset transfer of $157 million was recorded as a deferred tax asset for GAAP reporting purposes in the first quarter of 2020 but was excluded from non-GAAP results. This was offset by $1 million of tax expense related to withholding taxes associated with the same intra-entity transfer recorded in the second quarter of 2020.

2.The Company’s forecasted full-year 2020 GAAP marginal effective tax rate includes $3 million of tax expense related to tax contingencies pursuant to FIN 48. For GAAP purposes, this is a component of the marginal rate and is recognized as tax benefit or expense based on the Company’s reported GAAP pre-tax income or loss for the quarter. To more accurately reflect the impact of the expense on a quarterly basis for non-GAAP purposes, the $3 million of tax expense is being recognized ratably each quarter instead of being included in the marginal effective rate.

3.Represents the income tax effect of the pre-tax adjustments to reconcile GAAP to Non-GAAP income based on the applicable jurisdictional statutory tax rate of the underlying item. Including the income tax effect assists investors in understanding the tax provision associated with those adjustments and the effective tax rate related to the underlying business and performance of the Company’s ongoing operations. As a result of these adjustments, the Company’s non-GAAP effective tax rate for the three months ended June 30 was 50.9% for 2020 and 26.1% for 2019. For the six months ended June 30, the Company’s non-GAAP effective tax rate was 27.3% for 2020 and 26.8% for 2019.

4.Represents the impact to earnings per share as a result of moving from basic to diluted shares.
