Rovi Corporation Reports Full Year and Fourth Quarter Financial Performance

Company Release - 2/16/2012 4:05 PM ET

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rovi Corporation (Nasdaq:ROVI) announced today that it had full year 2011 revenues of $690.8 million, compared to $541.5 million for 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 revenues were $177.2 million, compared to $140.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. Revenues and results from continuing operations exclude the results of the Roxio software business which was sold on February 1, 2012, and have been reclassified to discontinued operations. 2011 GAAP net loss per common share was $0.36, compared to net income per common share of $1.94 for 2010. Fourth quarter 2011 GAAP net loss per common share was $0.46, compared to net income per common share of $0.59 for the fourth quarter of 2010. The Company's GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter and the full year 2011 included a $40.6 million impairment charge related to reducing the carrying value of the Roxio software asset group to fair value less costs to sell. The Company's GAAP earnings for the fourth quarter and the full year 2010 included a $40.7 million and a $139.2 million income tax benefit, respectively.

On a non-GAAP Adjusted Pro Forma basis, 2011 revenue was $715.7 million compared with $638.8 million in 2010. Revenues for 2011 were near the high end of the 2011 estimates provided on January 12, 2012, after taking into account the reclassification of the Roxio software business to discontinued operations. Fourth quarter 2011 Adjusted Pro Forma revenues were $177.2 million, compared with $166.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2010. Adjusted Pro Forma Income per common share was $2.40 for 2011 (at the high end of 2011 estimates provided on January 12, 2012, after taking into account the reclassification of the Roxio software business to discontinued operations), compared to $1.84 for 2010. Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $0.60, compared to $0.48 for the fourth quarter of 2010. Adjusted Pro Forma Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share are defined below, in the section entitled Non-GAAP or Adjusted Pro Forma Information. Reconciliations between GAAP pro forma and Adjusted Pro Forma results from operations are provided in the tables below.

"We grew our Adjusted Pro Forma revenue by 12% in 2011 and our Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share by over 30% in 2011," said Tom Carson, President and CEO of Rovi. "I am pleased with the many successes achieved across our business in 2011."

"Consistent with the growth areas that we identified at our investor day in early January, and after taking into account the divestiture of the Roxio business, we expect our Adjusted Pro Forma Revenue for the full calendar year 2012 to range between $755 million and $785 million and we expect our full year Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share to range between $2.35 and $2.65," added James Budge, Chief Financial Officer of Rovi.

Non-GAAP or Adjusted Pro Forma Information

Rovi Corporation provides non-GAAP Adjusted Pro Forma information. References to Adjusted Pro Forma information are references to non-GAAP pro forma measures. The Company provides Adjusted Pro Forma information to assist investors in assessing its current and future operations in the way that its management evaluates those operations. Adjusted Pro Forma Revenue, Adjusted Pro Forma Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share are supplemental measures of the Company's performance that are not required by, and are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted Pro Forma information is not a substitute for any performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, including, but not limited to, GAAP pro forma information prepared in accordance with ASC 805, Business Combinations

Adjusted Pro Forma and GAAP pro forma measures assume the Sonic Solutions business combination and the Roxio software business disposition both occurred on January 1, 2010. Adjusted Pro Forma Income is defined as GAAP pro forma income (loss) from continuing operations, net of tax, adding back non-cash items such as equity-based compensation, amortization of intangibles, amortization or write-off of note issuance costs, non-cash interest expense recorded on convertible debt under Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 470-20 (formerly known as FSP APB 14-1), mark-to-market fair value adjustments for interest rate swaps and caps, the reversals of discrete tax items including reserves and the release of a portion of a payroll tax liability which Sonic Solutions established in prior years in connection with a stock option review; as well as items which impact comparability that are required to be recorded under GAAP, but that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results such as transaction, transition and integration costs, restructuring and asset impairment charges, payments to note holders and for expenses in connection with the early redemption of debt, gains on sale of strategic investments, the loss on exiting the Guideworks Joint Venture, and expenses related to certain Gemstar pre-acquisition indemnification and other matters in excess of reserves established in purchase accounting. While depreciation expense is a non-cash item, it is included in Adjusted Pro Forma Income as a reasonable proxy for capital expenditures.

Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share is calculated using Adjusted Pro Forma Income and taking into account the benefit of the convertible debt call option when it allows the Company to purchase shares of its own stock at a price below what those shares could be purchased for in the open market. 

The Company's management has evaluated and made operating decisions about its business operations primarily based upon Adjusted Pro Forma Revenue, Adjusted Pro Forma Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share. Management uses Adjusted Pro Forma Income and Adjusted Pro Forma Income Per Common Share as measures as they exclude items management does not consider to be "core costs" or "core proceeds" when making business decisions. Therefore, management presents these Adjusted Pro Forma financial measures along with GAAP measures. For each such Adjusted Pro Forma financial measure, the adjustment provides management with information about the Company's underlying operating performance that enables a more meaningful comparison of its financial results in different reporting periods. For example, since Rovi Corporation does not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, management excludes amortization of intangibles from acquisitions, transaction costs and transition and integration costs in order to make more consistent and meaningful evaluations of the Company's operating expenses. Management also excludes the effect of restructuring and asset impairment charges, losses on debt redemption, the loss on exiting the Guideworks Joint Venture, expenses related to certain Gemstar pre-acquisition indemnification and other matters in excess of reserves established in purchase accounting, gains on sale of strategic investments and the release of a portion of a payroll tax liability which Sonic Solutions established in prior years in connection with a stock option review for the same reason. Management excludes the impact of equity-based compensation to help it compare current period operating expenses against the operating expenses for prior periods and to eliminate the effects of this non-cash item, which, because it is based upon estimates on the grant dates, may bear little resemblance to the actual values realized upon the future exercise, expiration, termination or forfeiture of the equity-based compensation, and which, as it relates to stock options and stock purchase plan shares, is required for GAAP purposes to be estimated under valuation models, including the Black-Scholes model used by Rovi Corporation. Management excludes non-cash interest expense recorded on convertible debt under ASC 470-20, mark-to-market fair value adjustments for interest rate swaps and caps, and the reversals of discrete tax items including reserves as they are non-cash items and not considered "core costs" or meaningful when management evaluates the Company's operating expenses. Management reclassifies the current period benefit or cost of the interest rate swaps from gain or loss on interest rate swaps and caps, net to interest expense in order for interest expense to reflect the swap rates, as these instruments were entered into to control the interest rate the Company effectively pays on its convertible debt. Management includes the benefit of the convertible debt call option, which allows the Company to purchase shares of its own stock at approximately $28.28, and is excluded from GAAP EPS calculation as it is anti-dilutive, because the pragmatic reality is management would exercise this option rather than allow this dilution to occur. This convertible debt call option was exercised in August 2011.

Management is using these Adjusted Pro Forma measures to help it make budgeting decisions, including decisions that affect operating expenses and operating margin. Further, Adjusted Pro Forma financial information helps management track actual performance relative to financial targets. Making Adjusted Pro Forma financial information available to investors, in addition to GAAP financial information, may also help investors compare the Company's performance with the performance of other companies in our industry, which may use similar financial measures to supplement their GAAP financial information.

Management recognizes that the use of Adjusted Pro Forma measures has limitations, including the fact that management must exercise judgment in determining which types of charges should be excluded from the Adjusted Pro Forma financial information. Because other companies, including companies similar to Rovi Corporation, may calculate their non-GAAP financial measures differently than the Company calculates its Adjusted Pro Forma measures, these Non-GAAP measures may have limited usefulness in comparing companies. Management believes, however, that providing Adjusted Pro Forma financial information, in addition to GAAP financial information, facilitates consistent comparison of the Company's financial performance over time. The Company provides Adjusted Pro Forma financial information to the investment community, not as an alternative, but as an important supplement to GAAP financial information; to enable investors to evaluate the Company's core operating performance in the same way that management does. Reconciliations between historical pro forma and Adjusted Pro Forma results of operations are provided in the tables below.

(5) While depreciation is a non-cash item, it is included in Adjusted Pro Forma Income From Continuing Operations as management considers it a proxy for capital expenditures.
(6) Adjustments eliminate non-cash interest expense such as amortization of note issuance costs and the convertible note discount recorded under ASC 470-20 (formerly known as FSP APB 14-1) and reclass to include the impact of interest rate swaps on interest expense.
(7) Adjustment eliminates non-cash mark-to-market gain or loss related to interest rate swaps and caps and reclassifies the current period benefit from the interest rate swap to interest expense.
(8) Adjusts tax expense to the adjusted pro forma cash tax rate. 
(9) For the 2011 period, since the preceding adjustments to pro forma loss from continuing operations resulted in Adjusted Pro Forma Net Income, shares used in computing diluted net earnings per share were adjusted to include dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding. For the 2010 period, adjustment recognizes the benefit of convertible debt call option, which allows the Company to purchase shares of its own stock at approximately $28.28, and which is excluded from GAAP EPS calculation as it is anti-dilutive.

(7) Adjustment eliminates the $1.0 million loss related to exiting the Guideworks Joint Venture.
