Fiscal Year 2012 Outlook:


Our initial outlook for our full fiscal year ending June 30, 2012 is as follows:




           Full Fiscal Year


-----------------------------------

Revenues

$822 million -- $832 million

Net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc.

$116 million -- $121 million

Adjusted EBITDA

$360 million -- $365 million

Adjusted Net Income

$204 million -- $208 million

Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share

$2.85 -- $2.90



The Fiscal Year 2012 outlook above assumes constant currency exchange rates from those currently prevailing, no acquisitions of businesses, and an assumed 28% income tax rate to calculate Adjusted Net Income.

Exchange rates between most of the major foreign currencies we use to transact our business and the U.S. dollar have fluctuated significantly over the last few years, and we expect that they will continue to fluctuate. The majority of our revenues and costs are denominated in Euros, Pound Sterling, Swiss francs, Canadian dollars and other foreign currencies.  The following table provides the average quarterly exchange rates for the Euro and Pound Sterling since the beginning of fiscal year 2010:

During fiscal year 2011, as compared to fiscal year 2010, the movement of the U.S. dollar against most major foreign currencies in which we transact our business was mixed. Relative to the Euro, the average U.S. dollar strengthened by 2.0%, which decreased our revenues and expenses for fiscal year 2011 relating to the Euro markets in which we transact business. In contrast, the average U.S. dollar weakened versus the Pound Sterling by 0.6%, which increased our revenues and expenses for fiscal year 2011 relating to the United Kingdom. A hypothetical 5% increase or decrease in the U.S. dollar versus other currencies in which we transact our business would have resulted in increases or decreases, as the case may be, to our revenues of $7.1 million and $26.9 million during the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.

All percentage amounts and ratios were calculated using the underlying data in whole dollars. We measure constant currency, or the effects on our results that are attributed to FX Changes, by measuring the incremental difference between translating the prior period and the current results at the monthly average rates for the same period from the prior year.

GAAP Income Tax Provision:

In fiscal year 2011, we recognized an income tax benefit of $14.4 million, as compared to the $32.2 million income tax provision recognized in fiscal year 2010, reflecting the release of $55.2 million of the valuation allowance on our U.S. net deferred tax assets. The release of the valuation allowance resulted from our recent sustained history of operating profitability in the U.S. and Canada, and the determination by management that the future realization of the net deferred tax assets was more-likely-than-not.  Additional details regarding the release of the valuation allowance on our U.S. net deferred tax assets and the effect on the GAAP income tax provision will be provided during our August 24, 2011 conference call and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended June 30, 2011 to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by August 29, 2011.  

Quarterly Dividend:

As we announced on August 15, 2011, our Board of Directors has approved the payment of a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share of outstanding common stock and per outstanding restricted stock unit.  Our Board of Directors has also approved a quarterly stock dividend equivalent of $0.10 per outstanding restricted stock unit granted to certain of our executive officers during fiscal years 2011 and 2012 in lieu of a cash dividend, which dividend equivalent will be paid to the restricted stock unit holders as the restricted stock unit vests.  The dividends are payable on September 20, 2011 to stockholders and restricted stock unit holders of record at the close of business on September 8, 2011.

Earnings Conference Call:

We will host our fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 earnings call today at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) -- August 24, 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use a number of non-GAAP financial measures that are not intended to be used in lieu of GAAP presentations, but are provided because management believes that they provide additional information with respect to the performance of our fundamental business activities and are also frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties to facilitate the evaluation of our business on a comparable basis to other companies. The three primary non-GAAP financial measures that we use are Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share are useful to investors in providing information regarding our operating results. We rely on Adjusted EBITDA as a primary measure to review and assess the operating performance of our company and our management team in connection with our executive compensation and bonus plans. Adjusted EBITDA also allows us to compare our current operating results with corresponding prior periods as well as to the operating results of other companies in our industry. We present Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share because we believe both of these measures provide useful information regarding our operating results in addition to our GAAP measures. We believe that Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share provide investors with valuable insight into our profitability exclusive of unusual adjustments, and provide further insight into the cash impact resulting from the different treatments of goodwill for financial reporting and tax purposes.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share have limitations as analytical tools, and you should not consider them in isolation or as a substitute for net income, net income per share and other consolidated income statement data prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share should not be considered as a replacement for net income. We compensate for these limitations by relying primarily on our GAAP results and using Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share as supplemental information.

  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc., excluding (i) interest expense, (ii) provision for income taxes, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation expense, (v) restructuring charges, asset impairments, and other costs associated with exit and disposal activities, (vi) other (income) expense, net and (vii) acquisition and related costs. Acquisition and related costs include legal and professional fees and other transaction costs associated with completed and contemplated business combinations and asset acquisitions, costs associated with integrating acquired businesses, including costs incurred to eliminate workforce redundancies and for product rebranding, and other charges incurred as a direct result of our acquisition efforts. These other charges include changes to the fair value of contingent purchase consideration, acquired assets and assumed liabilities subsequent to the completion of the purchase price allocation, purchase price that is deemed to be compensatory in nature, incentive compensation arrangements with continuing employees of acquired companies and gains and losses resulting from the settlement of a pre-existing contractual relationship with an acquiree. A reconciliation of our Adjusted EBITDA to GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc., the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided in the attached table.

  • Adjusted Net Income is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc., excluding (i) provision for income taxes, (ii) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (iii) stock-based compensation expense, (iv) restructuring charges, asset impairments, and other costs associated with exit and disposal activities, (v) other (income) expense, excluding interest income and (vi) acquisition and related costs. From this amount, we subtract an assumed provision for income taxes to arrive at Adjusted Net Income. We assume a 28% income tax rate as an approximation of our long-term effective corporate income tax rate, which includes certain benefits from net operating loss carryforwards, tax credits, tax deductible goodwill and amortization, and certain holding companies in low tax-rate jurisdictions. A reconciliation of our Adjusted Net Income to GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc., the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided in the attached table.
  • Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents Adjusted Net Income (as defined above) divided by the number of diluted shares outstanding for the period used in the calculation of GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc. per diluted common share. A reconciliation of our Adjusted Net Income per diluted common share to GAAP net income attributable to Solera Holdings, Inc. per diluted common share, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is provided in the attached table.
