"We generated strong non-GAAP operating margins and record non-GAAP earnings per share in the first quarter," added Mike Berry, SolarWinds' Chief Financial Officer. "For the full year, we have increased our non-GAAP operating margin and earnings per share outlook reflecting our performance in the first quarter along with an ongoing confidence in our ability to balance investment in growth with our disciplined ROI-based approach to spending."
As of April 30, 2013, SolarWinds is providing its financial outlook for its second quarter and full year of 2013. The financial information below represents forward-looking non-GAAP financial information, including an estimate of non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of revenue, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share, for the second quarter of 2013 and for the full year 2013. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude, among other items mentioned below, stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes. SolarWinds cannot reasonably estimate the expected stock-based compensation expense and related employer-paid payroll taxes for these future periods as the amounts depend upon such factors as the future price of SolarWinds' stock for purposes of computation. In addition, costs related to non-recurring items and acquisitions are not something that SolarWinds can estimate because they are a function of what non-recurring items and acquisitions, if any, occur and the kind of costs incurred in connection with any such non-recurring items or acquisitions.
Financial Outlook for the Second Quarter of 2013
SolarWinds' management currently expects to achieve the following results for the second quarter of 2013:
•Total revenue in the range of $77.8-$78.8 million, or 21% to 23% growth over the second quarter of 2012. •Non-GAAP operating income representing approximately 52% of revenue. •Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.37-$0.38. •Weighted average outstanding diluted shares of approximately 77.3 million.
Financial Outlook for Full Year 2013
SolarWinds' management is revising its outlook, previously announced on February 4, 2013, and currently expects to achieve the following results for the full year 2013:
•Total 2013 revenue in the range of $326.5-$334.0 million, or 21% to 24% year-over-year growth. •Non-GAAP operating income for the full year representing 52%-53% of revenue. •Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $1.59-$1.65. •Weighted average outstanding diluted shares of approximately 77.5 million.
