RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 24, 2010--Red Hat Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended February 28, 2010.

Total revenue for the quarter was $195.9 million, an increase of 18% from the year ago quarter. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $169.2 million, up 21% year-over-year. For the full year, total revenue was $748.2 million, an increase of 15% over the prior year, and subscription revenue was $638.7 million, up 18% year-over-year.

“With double digit revenue growth and record billings, our fourth quarter capped off a year of solid performance, moving us closer to our milestone revenue goal of a billion dollars,” stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat. “As we look forward, we believe that we are well positioned at the confluence of several major technology trends in the data center, including cloud computing, virtualization and middleware. Red Hat’s products directly address these trends and deliver innovative, cost-saving solutions to our customers that we expect will continue to drive our growth.”

GAAP operating income for the fourth quarter and the full fiscal year 2010 was $28.0 million and $100.3 million respectively. GAAP operating margin was 14.3% in the fourth quarter and 13.4% for the full year. After adjusting for stock compensation expense, amortization expense and the charge for our previously announced litigation settlement, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP operating income for the quarter was $46.6 million, or a 23.8% operating margin, and full year non-GAAP operating income was $177.0 million. Full year non-GAAP operating margin was 23.7%, an increase of 100 basis points from the prior year.

GAAP net income for the quarter was $23.4 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with $16.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, for the prior quarter and $16.0 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the quarter was $36.5 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, after adjusting for stock compensation expense and amortization expense, as detailed in the tables below. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $33.5 million, or $0.17 per diluted share in the prior quarter and $28.5 million, or $0.15 per diluted share in the year ago quarter.

For the full year, GAAP net income was $87.3 million or $0.45 per diluted share, compared with $78.7 million or $0.39 per diluted share in the prior year. After adjusting for stock compensation expense, amortization expense and the charge for our previously announced litigation settlement, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP adjusted net income for the year was $138.1 million or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to $121.5 million and $0.59 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2009.

GAAP operating cash flow totaled $77.9 million for the quarter and $255.2 million for the full year, after payment of $8.8 million for our previously announced litigation settlement. At year end, the company’s total deferred revenue balance was $645.9 million, an increase of 19% on a year-over-year basis and 4% sequentially. Cash and investments at February 28, 2010 totaled $970.2 million after repurchasing approximately $90.1 million, or 3.1 million shares, of common stock in the quarter. For the full fiscal year, Red Hat repurchased $236.4 million, or 10 million shares, of common stock. The diluted share count for the full year is 193.5 million shares, down 8.4% from the prior year.

“This year has been about consistent execution in the most difficult economic conditions in our lifetime. We managed costs carefully while continuing to invest significantly. We added over 350 employees consistently throughout the year, principally in engineering and sales. We invested in sales training, systems and new equipment while holding the line on travel and other discretionary costs. As a result, we grew annual non-GAAP operating income by 19% and improved operating margin by 100 basis points for the full year,” stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat. “We have had consistently strong cash flow for some time, but the fourth quarter was exceptional with GAAP operating cash flow of $77.9 million, up 31% year-over-year, even after the one time litigation payment of $8.8 million.”

Additional information on Red Hat’s reported results, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP adjusted results, are included in the financial tables below. A live webcast of Red Hat’s results will begin at 5:00 pm ET today and can be accessed by the general public at Red Hat’s investor relations website at http://investors.redhat.com.
