VeriSign, Inc. and subsidiaries ("Verisign") reported revenue of $224 million for the third quarter of 2012, up 13 percent from the same quarter in 2011. Verisign reported net income of $78 million and diluted earnings per shares (EPS) of $0.47 for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $59 million and diluted EPS of $0.36 for the same quarter in 2011. The operating margin was 51.9 percent for the third quarter of 2012 compared to 45.2 percent for the same quarter in 2011.
Third Quarter Non-GAAP Financial Results
Verisign reported, on a non-GAAP basis, net income of $84 million and diluted EPS of $0.50 for the third quarter of 2012, compared to net income of $64 million and diluted EPS of $0.39 for the same quarter in 2011. The non-GAAP operating margin was 56.4 percent for the third quarter of 2012 compared to 50.1 percent for the same quarter in 2011. A table reconciling the GAAP to the non-GAAP results (that excludes items described below) is appended to this release.
"We continue to see benefits in our results from our restructuring, focus, and continued operational discipline," commented Jim Bidzos, executive chairman, president and chief executive officer.
Verisign's .com Registry Agreement renewal with Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to serve as the authoritative registry operator for the .com registry was approved by Verisign's Board of Directors on June 16, 2012, and ICANN's Board of Directors on June 23, 2012. In accordance with the Cooperative Agreement between the Department of Commerce and Verisign, Verisign submitted the .com Registry Agreement to the Commerce Department for its review on June 26, 2012. As a result of communications beginning in October 2012 with the Commerce Department, we have concluded that the Commerce Department may not complete its review and approve the renewal of the .com Registry Agreement prior to its expiration on Nov. 30, 2012, and that the Commerce Department, together with the Department of Justice, is reviewing the .com Registry Agreement's pricing terms. Pursuant to the terms of the Cooperative Agreement, if the .com Registry Agreement is not approved by the Commerce Department prior to its expiration, the Commerce Department is required to agree to the extension of the .com Registry Agreement for six months, or such other reasonable period of time as the Commerce Department and Verisign may mutually agree.
"We remain committed to providing unparalleled network and registry services performance as we work with the Commerce Department to renew the .com Registry Agreement. Additionally, an area of emphasis for us is further enhancing our infrastructure to strengthen security and stability for both our customers and our own operations, in the face of new and ever-increasing cyber threats," said Bidzos.
Verisign ended the third quarter with Cash, Cash Equivalents, Marketable Securities and Restricted Cash of $1.50 billion, an increase of $147 million from year-end 2011.
Cash flow from operations was $122 million for the third quarter compared with $108 million for the same quarter in 2011.
Deferred revenues ended the third quarter of 2012 totaling $809 million, an increase of $80 million from year-end 2011.
Capital expenditures were $14 million in the third quarter of 2012.
During the third quarter, Verisign repurchased 1.7 million shares of its common stock for a cost of $77 million. At Sept. 30, 2012, approximately $610 million remained available and authorized for share repurchases.
For purposes of calculating diluted EPS, the third quarter diluted share count included 9.2 million shares related to the convertible debentures, compared with no dilutive effect in the same quarter in 2011. These represent dilutive shares and not shares that have been issued.
Due to the stock price exceeding the convertible debentures trigger during the third quarter of 2012, holders have the option to convert the debentures into common stock during the fourth quarter of 2012. Consequently, the debt component of the convertible debentures, the related embedded derivative, and deferred tax liability were reclassified from long-term liabilities to current liabilities, while the associated unamortized debt issuance costs were reclassified from long-term assets to current assets, as of Sept. 30, 2012.
Verisign Registry Services added 1.37 million net new names and ended the third quarter with approximately 119.9 million active domain names in the zone for .com and .net, representing a 7.1 percent increase year over year.
In the third quarter, Verisign processed 7.8 million new domain name registrations for .com and .net, representing a 1.1 percent decrease year over year.
Non-GAAP financial results exclude the following items that are included under GAAP: Discontinued operations, stock-based compensation, amortization of other intangible assets, impairments of goodwill and other intangible assets, restructuring charges, contingent interest payments to holders of our Convertible Debentures, unrealized gain/loss on contingent interest derivative on Convertible Debentures, and non-cash interest expense. Non-GAAP financial information is also adjusted for a 28 percent tax rate starting from the third quarter of 2012, and 30 percent for the other periods presented herein, both of which differ from the GAAP tax rate. A table reconciling the GAAP to non-GAAP operating income and net income attributable to Verisign stockholders is appended to this release. "
