Datawatch Reports Fiscal Fourth Quarter 2012 Results, Announces New Brand And Positioning To Support Growth In Fiscal 2013

Full Year Revenue Up 45% and License Revenue Rises 70% as Company Closes Out a Successful Fiscal Year 2012

CHELMSFORD, Mass., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of information optimization solutions, today announced that total revenue for its fourth quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $6.02 million, an increase of 24% from revenue of $4.84 million in the fourth quarter a year ago.  License revenue for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $3.62 million, a 29% increase over the $2.80 million recorded in the comparable quarter a year ago.  Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $277,000, or ($0.04) per diluted share, compared to net income of $201,000, or $0.03 per diluted share, for the year ago period.  Datawatch continues to engage in larger enterprise opportunities and in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 closed another seven-figure license transaction with a worldwide information technology company.  Due to the structure of the transaction, the license revenue associated with this deal was not recognized in the fourth quarter of 2012, but instead will be recognized ratably over the 12 months of fiscal year 2013.  The increase in deferred revenue on Datawatch's balance sheet as of September 30, 2012 is largely related to this significant transaction.

Total revenue for fiscal year 2012 was $26.01 million, a 45% increase from revenue of $17.89 million in fiscal year 2011.  License revenue for 2012 was $16.80 million, a 70% increase compared to $9.86 million in 2011.  Net income for 2012 was $1,034,000 or $0.15 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $132,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, for 2011.  Excluding the effects of the non-cash amortization associated with the acquisition of the intellectual property underlying the Monarch software in March 2012, as well as non-cash stock compensation costs and severance expenses, the Company's non–GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $526,000, or $0.08 per diluted share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $319,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011.  The Company's non-GAAP net income for fiscal year 2012 was $3,019,000, or $0.45 per diluted share, as compared to non-GAAP net income of $1,037,000, or $0.17 per diluted share, for fiscal year 2011.

"Datawatch closed a very productive fiscal 2012 and is entering fiscal 2013 with strong momentum.  With increased sales capacity, key additions to the executive management team and a new and powerful cloud-based complement to our award-winning technology portfolio, we are better positioned than ever to capture the growing demand among companies of all sizes for information optimization solutions," said Michael A. Morrison, president and CEO of Datawatch.  "Datawatch is setting new standards for reporting and analytics, especially in the area of Big Data applications where harnessing a greater variety of data is as important as the volume and velocity of data in understanding the complete 360 degree view of the business.  We continue to benefit from these Big Data market dynamics that increasingly recognize the analytic value of all types of information - structured, semi-structured and unstructured – and that this information often comes from both inside and outside an organization.  Our newly revitalized messaging and branding are already enhancing our market awareness and providing us with access to new opportunities arising from these market dynamics.  We expect that our focus on expanding global alliances, selling domain-specific applications of our information optimization solutions and increased efforts to promote brand awareness with industry analysts and financial analysts will all serve to build our momentum and drive accelerated performance for Datawatch in fiscal 2013."

Fourth Quarter Business Highlights

  • Datawatch entered into an agreement with Unisys Belgium to extend Datawatch's information optimization solutions in support of an outsourcing arrangement between Unisys Belgium and one of Belgium's largest banking and insurance companies.  The Datawatch solution is being used to archive, manage, share and retrieve hundreds of millions of documents and Big Data artifacts for use by employees throughout the organization.    
  • Datawatch entered into new business partnerships in Japan, Korea, Thailand and the Philippines with several premier resellers and implementation partners, including Xlsoft, Synetcom, Brainchild, WorkCentric and Tricor that greatly expand Datawatch's channels in the Asia Pacific region.  Datawatch also added automotive leader Audi Japan as a customer to deliver a key performance indicator dashboard application to senior management and stakeholders throughout Japan.
  • Datawatch announced the appointment of three new executives to drive company growth and enhance market visibility:  Ben Plummer, Chief Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President of Strategic Alliances; Jon Pilkington, Vice President of Products; and Mike Carroll, Vice President of Worldwide Sales Support.
  • Datawatch launched its new Information Optimization messaging focused on the company's ability to provide data variety to Big Data, business intelligence and business process improvement applications and introduced new branding to support this messaging through the launch of a newly designed website, updated sales materials, improved product positioning and redesigned collateral.

Fourth Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Cash and short-term investments were $8.72 million at September 30, 2012, up 11% from $7.84 million at June 30, 2012 and up 4% from $8.38 million a year ago.  In Q2 of FY12, the company used $3.04 million in cash to partially fund the purchase of the Monarch intellectual property.
  • Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 82.8%, compared to 83.6% for the third quarter of 2012. 
  • Days sales outstanding were 70 days at September 30, 2012, compared to 65 days at June 30, 2012 and 59 days at September 30, 2011.
  • Deferred revenue was $6.30 million as of September 30, 2012, a 65% increase over deferred revenue of $3.82 million as of September 30, 2011, with the increase in large part reflecting the seven-figure license transaction signed in the fourth quarter of 2012 that will be recognized ratably over the course of fiscal year 2013.

"During our fiscal fourth quarter, we generated approximately $1.5 million in cash, and we used a portion of that cash to pay down $600,000 of our $1.5 million working capital loan with Silicon Valley Bank.  We continue to invest in the growth of our business in a disciplined manner, and this has positioned us to enter fiscal 2013 with a strong foundation upon which to further build out our product platform and sales organization in order to achieve our 2013 objectives," stated Mr. Morrison.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and make operating decisions. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effects and adjustments to the valuation allowance:

Amortization of purchased software: We have excluded the effect of amortization of the Monarch software and related intellectual property that we acquired from Math Strategies on March 30, 2012 from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures.  Amortization of this purchased software resulted from a material transaction that is not likely to occur in the foreseeable future.  Investors should note that the use of the purchased software will contribute to future period revenues.  Amortization of the purchased software will recur in future periods.

Share-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of share-based compensation expenses from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Although share-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding share-based compensation expenses. Share-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

Restructuring: We incurred significant expenses with the restructuring of our sales and marketing operations in fiscal 2011 and other restructuring actions taken in fiscal 2012, principally related to selected headcount reductions. We believe it is useful for investors to understand the effects of these items on our total operating expenses and net income.
