Business Outlook

Progress' fiscal 2016 financial guidance is based on current exchange rates. The negative currency translation impact on Progress' fiscal year 2016 business outlook compared to 2015 exchange rates is unchanged at approximately $7.0 million on non-GAAP revenue and $0.02 to $0.03 on non-GAAP earnings per share. The negative currency translation impact on Progress' fiscal Q2 2016 business outlook compared to 2015 exchange rates is approximately $1.0 million to $2.0 million on non-GAAP revenue and $0.01 to $0.02 on non-GAAP earnings per share. To the extent that there are further changes in exchange rates versus the current environment, this may have an additional impact on Progress' business outlook.

Progress Software provides the following revised guidance for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2016:

  • Non-GAAP revenue is expected to be between $414 million and $420 million (previously $427-$433 million);
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share is expected to be between $1.57 and $1.63 (previously $1.59-$1.65);
  • Non-GAAP operating margin is expected to be approximately 29% (previously 29%-30%);
  • Adjusted free cash flow is expected to be between $80 million and $85 million (previously $97-$102 million); and
  • Non-GAAP effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 33% (unchanged).

Progress Software provides the following guidance for the second fiscal quarter ending May 31, 2016:

  • Non-GAAP revenue is expected to be between $93 million and $96 million; and
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share is expected to be between $0.26 and $0.29.

Share Repurchase Program

Progress also announced today that its Board of Directors has authorized a new $100 million share repurchase program, increasing the total authorization to $203 million.

Non-GAAP revenue $ 100.9 $ 93.0 (8 )% $ 96.0 (5 )%
 

(1) Acquisition-related revenue constitutes revenue reflected as pre-acquisition deferred revenue by Telerik that would otherwise have been recognized but for the purchase accounting treatment of the acquisition of Telerik. Since GAAP accounting requires the elimination of this revenue, GAAP results alone do not fully capture all of our economic activities.
