FREMONT, Calif., April 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced its results for the first quarter of 2015.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported record first quarter revenue of $194.6 million, up 3% compared to first quarter 2014 revenue of $188.7 million. Non-GAAP operating income was $28.3 million compared to $25.3 million for the same period in 2014. Non-GAAP net income was $21.4 million or $0.45 per diluted share, which included an unfavorable non-operational currency impact of $0.02 per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $20.4 million or $0.42 per diluted share for the same period in 2014. GAAP operating income was $11.1 million compared to $10.8 million for the same period in 2014. GAAP net income was $5.2 million or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $10.1 million or $0.21 per diluted share for the same period in 2014.

"Our Company's balanced portfolio and execution allowed us to report record first quarter revenue and solid profitability despite the continued significant impact of foreign currency," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. "The EFI team's ability to consistently develop new, innovative technologies for the EFI ecosystem continues to expand our addressable market while enabling our customers around the globe to be more profitable."

Chief Financial Officer Announcement

Separately, the Company announced that the Board of Directors has named Marc Olin Chief Financial Officer.

"I am excited to have Marc as our new CFO, especially after the terrific job he did managing EFI's financial operations both times he served in an interim role," said Gecht. "In the past few months it was very evident to the Board and myself that Marc's business acumen, drive and utmost respect inside and outside of EFI make him the perfect candidate for such a key role in driving M&A and organic growth to the billion dollar mark and beyond."

Marc joined EFI in 2003 when the Company acquired Nasdaq-listed PrintCafe, where he was CEO. Since joining EFI, Marc has served as SVP and General Manager of the Productivity Software business, and most recently as COO and Interim CFO.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared under generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses and gains. A reconciliation of the adjustments to GAAP results for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 is provided below. In addition, an explanation of how management uses non-GAAP financial information to evaluate its business, the substance behind management's decision to use this non-GAAP financial information, the material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial information, the manner in which management compensates for those limitations, and the substantive reasons management believes that this non-GAAP financial information provides useful information to investors is included under "About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments" after the tables below.

These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or an alternative to GAAP and may be materially different from other non-GAAP measures, including similarly titled non-GAAP measures, used by other companies. The presentation of this additional information should not be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, net income or earnings per diluted share prepared in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect certain items that may have a material impact upon our reported financial results. We expect to continue to incur expenses of a nature similar to the non-GAAP adjustments described above, and exclusion of these items from our non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual, infrequent, or non-recurring.

About our Non-GAAP Net Income and Adjustments

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial results prepared in accordance with GAAP, we use non-GAAP measures of net income and earnings per diluted share that are GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share adjusted to exclude certain costs, expenses, and gains.

We believe that the presentation of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share provides important supplemental information regarding non-cash expenses and significant items that we believe are important to understanding financial and business trends relating to our financial condition and results of operations. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share are among the primary indicators used by management as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods and by management and our Board of Directors to determine whether our operating performance has met specified targets and thresholds. Management uses non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share when evaluating operating performance because it believes the exclusion of the items described below, for which the amounts and/or timing may vary significantly depending on our activities and other factors, facilitates comparability of our operating performance from period to period. We have chosen to provide this information to investors so they can analyze our operating results in the same way that management does and use this information in their assessment of our business and the valuation of our Company.

Use and Economic Substance of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We compute non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share by adjusting GAAP net income and GAAP earnings per diluted share to remove the impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, restructuring and other expenses, acquisition-related transaction expenses, costs to integrate such acquisitions into our business, changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, litigation settlement charges, and non-cash interest expense related to our 0.75% convertible senior notes ("Notes"). We use a constant non-GAAP tax rate of 19%, which we believe reflects the long term average tax rate based on our international structure and geographic distribution of revenue and profit.

These excluded items are described below:

  • Intangible assets acquired to date are being amortized on a straight-line basis.
  • Stock-based compensation expense of $10.2 million consists of $8.8 million of stock-based compensation expense recognized in accordance with ASC 718, Stock Compensation and the non-cash settlement of $1.4 million of vacation liabilities settled through the issuance of RSUs, which is not included in the GAAP presentation of our stock-based compensation expense.
  • Restructuring and other expenses consists of:
    • Restructuring charges incurred as we consolidate the number and size of our facilities and, as a result, reduce the size of our workforce.
    • Expenses incurred to integrate businesses acquired during the periods reported.
  • Acquisition-related transaction costs associated with businesses acquired during the periods reported and anticipated transactions.
  • Changes in fair value of contingent consideration. Our management determined that we should analyze the total return provided by the investment when evaluating operating results of an acquired entity. The total return consists of operating profit generated from the acquired entity compared to the purchase price paid, including the final amounts paid for contingent consideration without considering any post-acquisition adjustments related to changes in the fair value of the contingent consideration. Because our management believes the final purchase price paid for the acquisition reflects the accounting value assigned to both contingent consideration and to the intangible assets, we exclude the GAAP impact of any adjustments to the fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration from the operating results of an acquisition in subsequent periods. We believe this approach is useful in understanding the long-term return provided by our acquisitions and that investors benefit from a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure that excludes the impact of this adjustment.
  • Non-cash interest expense on our Notes. Our Notes may be settled in cash on conversion. We are required to separately account for the liability (debt) and equity (conversion option) components of the Notes in a manner that reflects our non-convertible debt borrowing rate. Accordingly, for GAAP purposes, we are required to amortize a debt discount equal to the fair value of the conversion option as interest expense on our $345 million of 0.75% convertible senior notes that were issued in a private placement in September 2014 over the term of the Notes.
  • Litigation settlements. We settled, or accrued reserves related to, several litigation claims of $0.6 and $0.1 million during the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
  • Tax effect of non-GAAP adjustments are as follows:
    • We use a constant non-GAAP tax rate of 19%, which we believe reflects the long term average tax rate based on our international structure and geographic distribution of revenue and profit. The long-term average tax rate is calculated in accordance with the principles of ASC 740, Income Taxes, after excluding the tax effect of the non-GAAP items described above, to estimate the non-GAAP income tax provision in each jurisdiction in which we operate.
    • The long-term average tax rate assumes that the U.S. federal research and development tax credit will be retroactively re-enacted as of January 1, 2015.
