Rally Software Announces First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

- Subscription and support revenue increased 40%

BOULDER, Colo., June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rally Software (NYSE: RALY), a leading global provider of cloud-based solutions for managing Agile software development, today announced financial results for its first quarter of fiscal 2014 ended April 30, 2013.

For the first quarter, subscription and support revenue increased 40% over the same period one year ago to $13.4 million. Rally reported total revenue of $16.0 million, an increase of 24% over the same period one year ago.

GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 78% as compared to 79% from the same period one year ago. Excluding stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-GAAP gross margin for the quarter was 79%, unchanged from the same period one year ago.

The company sold more than 15,000 seats in the quarter, bringing total paid seat count to more than 184,000.

Rally generated $1.4 million in cash flow from operating activities, and raised $89.8 million in proceeds from its initial public offering, net of underwriting discounts and commissions, during the quarter. Cash and cash equivalents at April 30, 2013 were $103.6 million. Deferred revenue increased 44% from $27.7 million in the same period one year ago to $40.0 million.

"We are delighted to report record results for our first quarter as a public company," commented Tim Miller, Chairman and CEO of Rally. "As our financials demonstrate, we experienced good momentum across the business and had notable new customer wins in many key industries and geographies. These new customers include a major healthcare provider in the U.S., banks in North America and Europe, and a large retailer in the UK and Europe. In addition, we were successful at expanding engagements with existing customers, including a major Internet search provider that increased its seat count by 200% in the quarter. The number of new companies developing their businesses based on Agile and Rally from inception is not only driving our revenue in the near term, but makes us highly optimistic about our continued success well into the future."

GAAP net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $(5.8) million, or $(0.98) per basic and diluted share, based on 5.9 million weighted average shares of common stock outstanding. This compares to a net loss of $(1.7) million, or $(0.86) per basic and diluted share, based on 2.0 million weighted average shares of common stock outstanding in the same period one year ago. The increase in GAAP net loss and net loss per share was primarily related to the company's continued investment to drive future growth of the business.

The company reported a non-GAAP net loss of $(5.1) million, or $(0.86) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $(1.5) million, or $(0.75) per basic and diluted share, in the prior year's first quarter, excluding $0.7 million in stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets in the first quarter of fiscal 2014, and $0.2 million in stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets in the first quarter of fiscal 2013. A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures can be found in the accompanying table to this press release.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Rally's condensed consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), the company has provided certain measures that have not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures include non-GAAP results for gross profit and gross margin, net loss and basic and diluted net loss per share, which are in addition to, and, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Rally's non-GAAP financial measures exclude stock-based compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. Management believes the presentation of operating results excluding stock-based compensation expense and the amortization of acquired intangible assets provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of Rally's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods and is therefore useful to investors in analyzing and assessing the company's past and future operating performance.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to such GAAP measures can be found in the accompanying table to this press release.
