Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX), “The Information Company,” today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended December 31, 2019.

“With the addition of Carbonite, we have a strategic market-opportunity to bring Information Management (IM) to all sizes of customers, from the largest of enterprises, governments, mid-size companies, small companies, and consumers. We are excited and energized to write the next chapter for OpenText as our vision expands and advances to Information Management, helping customers to migrate into the cloud and reinvent their businesses processes”, said Mark J. Barrenechea, OpenText CEO & CTO. “We are a partner-oriented company with the talent and culture to make an SMB channel wildly successful. With Carbonite this partner opportunity gets significantly stronger and deeper as we leverage OpenText’s proven expertise and successful track record of building powerful global partner programs.”

“Our Q2 results reflect an increasing demand for OpenText products as we delivered strong top-line growth. In constant currency, total revenues grew to $781.8 million, up 6.3% year-over-year, Annual Recurring Revenues (ARR) grew to a record $570.8 million, up 7.8% year-over-year, representing 73% of total revenues, driven by Cloud Services and Subscriptions revenues of $250.2 million, which increased significantly by 14.1% year-over-year,” said Barrenechea.

“OpenText demonstrated solid operational performance during the second quarter, delivering to our Total Growth Strategy.  We put our capital to work, while maintaining a strong balance sheet with a net leverage ratio of 2.3x, and generated solid operating cash flows of $207.2 million, supported by equally strong A-EBITDA results”, said OpenText EVP, CFO, Madhu Ranganathan.  “The Carbonite transaction closed efficiently, financed by our internal cash and existing revolver. The integration has kicked off with strength and we remain on target to complete the Carbonite integration by the end of Fiscal 2021.”

Integration of Carbonite and Restructuring Plan

As OpenText integrates the acquisition, we anticipate a one-time deferred revenue adjustment that will result in a reduction in Carbonite revenue. In addition to this deferred revenue adjustment impact, we expect Carbonite revenue contribution to be down for the next few quarters due to typical integration activities, and then normalize to historical levels thereafter.

OpenText is also announcing a restructuring plan that will impact our global workforce and consolidate certain real estate facilities to further streamline our operations, inclusive of Carbonite.   The anticipated cost is expected to be approximately $26 million to $34 million. These restructuring activities are anticipated to be completed by the end of Fiscal 2021, and once completed, OpenText anticipates annualized cost savings of approximately $37 million to $41 million. We expect any savings realized during the remainder of Fiscal 2020 to be largely offset by one-time Carbonite integration costs.
