Resultado representa um aumento de 4% em relação ao total de US$ 523,2 milhões do mesmo período no ano anterior; o ano fiscal da F5 Networks termina em 30 de setembro
A F5, líder em soluções que garantem a segurança e a entrega de aplicações corporativas, anuncia receita de US$ 543,8 milhões de dólares no primeiro trimestre fiscal de 2019, encerrado em 31 de dezembro. Se equiparado ao mesmo período de 2018, isso significa um aumento de 4%, o que equivale a US$ 20,6 milhões a mais.
A F5 encerra seu ano fiscal no dia 30 de setembro.
De acordo com François Locoh-Donou, presidente e CEO da F5, o crescimento em comparação com o primeiro trimestre do ano fiscal de 2019 foi impulsionado por uma aceleração contínua nas soluções de software, que levou, pelo terceiro trimestre consecutivo, ao crescimento da receita de produtos em relação ao ano anterior. “A F5 continua a avançar sua posição em arquiteturas multinuvem, com a crescente demanda por soluções de software gerando um crescimento de 4% na receita total do primeiro trimestre em relação ao ano anterior”, disse o principal porta voz da F5.
Para ele, à medida em que os clientes implementam aplicações em ambientes híbridos e multinuvem complexos, a necessidade por uma segurança cada vez mais consistente e, com desempenho confiável está se tornando ainda mais evidente. “A F5 está posicionada de maneira singular para resolver esse crescente desafio para os nossos clientes, com os serviços de aplicações multinuvem exigidos pelas aplicações deles”, garante Locoh-Donou.
O executivo completou dizendo que no trimestre foi observado, ainda, um crescimento contínuo da receita de produtos e serviços, além de rendimentos não-GAAP mais expressivos do que o esperado.
De olho no futuro
Para o segundo trimestre do ano fiscal de 2019, com término em 31 de março de 2019, a Empresa estabeleceu uma meta de receita de USD 543 milhões a USD 553 milhões, com meta de rendimento não-GAAP de USD 2,53 a USD 2,56 por ação diluída.
Uma reconciliação dos lucros GAAP e não-GAAP esperados pela empresa aparece na tabela abaixo:
All forward-looking non-GAAP measures included in the outlook exclude estimates for amortization of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses, significant effects of tax legislation and judicial or administrative interpretation of tax regulations, including the impact of income tax reform, non-recurring income tax adjustments, valuation allowance on deferred tax assets, and the income tax effect of non-GAAP exclusions, and do not include the impact of any future acquisitions or divestitures, restructuring charges, facility exit costs, or other non-recurring charges that may occur in the period. F5 is unable to provide a reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding U.S. generally accepted accounting principles or GAAP measures on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the overall high variability and low visibility of most of the foregoing items that have been excluded. Material changes to any one of these items could have a significant effect on our guidance and future GAAP results. Certain exclusions, such as amortization of intangible assets and share-based compensation expenses, are generally incurred each quarter, but the amounts have historically varied and may continue to vary significantly from quarter to quarter.

GAAP to non-GAAP Reconciliation
F5’s management evaluates and makes operating decisions using various operating measures. These measures are generally based on the revenues of its products, services operations and certain costs of those operations, such as cost of revenues, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative expenses. One such measure is net income excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets, acquisition-related charges, net of taxes, and certain non-recurring tax expenses and benefits, which is a non-GAAP financial measure under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. This measure consists of GAAP net income excluding, as applicable, stock-based compensation, amortization of purchased intangible assets, litigation expense, restructuring charges, facility exit costs, gain on sale of patents, non-recurring tax expenses and benefits, and acquisition-related charges. This measure of non-GAAP net income is adjusted by the amount of additional taxes or tax benefit that the company would accrue if it used non-GAAP results instead of GAAP results to calculate the company’s tax liability. Stock-based compensation is a non-cash expense that F5 has accounted for since July 1, 2005 in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718 Compensation—Stock Compensation (“FASB ASC Topic 718”). Amortization of intangible assets is a non-cash expense. Investors should note that the use of intangible assets contribute to revenues earned during the periods presented and will contribute to revenues in future periods. Acquisition-related expenses consist of professional services fees incurred in connection with acquisitions. In addition, non-recurring costs associated with the relocation of the company’s corporate headquarters have been excluded from GAAP net income for the purpose of measuring non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share in the first quarter of fiscal year 2019.
Management believes that non-GAAP net income per share provides useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the performance of the company’s core business operations and facilitates comparisons to the company’s historical operating results. Although F5’s management finds this non-GAAP measure to be useful in evaluating the performance of the core business, management’s reliance on this measure is limited because items excluded from such measures could have a material effect on F5’s earnings and earnings per share calculated in accordance with GAAP. Therefore, F5’s management will use its non-GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, in conjunction with GAAP earnings and earnings per share measures, to address these limitations when evaluating the performance of the company’s core business. Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP.
F5 believes that presenting its non-GAAP measures of earnings and earnings per share provides investors with an additional tool for evaluating the performance of the company’s core business and is used by management in its own evaluation of the company’s performance. Investors are encouraged to look at GAAP results as the best measure of financial performance. However, while the GAAP results are more complete, the company provides investors these supplemental measures since, with reconciliation to GAAP, it may provide additional insight into the company’s operational performance and financial results.
For reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the section in our attached Consolidated Income Statements entitled “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
