Workday, Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended July 31, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Third Quarter of 2015 and Capex Guidance for the Year 2016

Workday, Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended July 31, 2015. Total revenues for the second quarter were $283 million, an increase of 51% from a year ago. The vast majority of revenues are in U.S. dollars, so there is minimal impact from exchange rates. Operating loss was $67,640,000 against $61,769,000 a year ago. The impact of the strong dollar had a $5.2 million or 180 basis point favorable impact on operating loss for the quarter as compared to last year. Loss before provision for income taxes was $71,419,000 against $68,722,000 a year ago. Net loss was $69,421,000 against $69,215,000 a year ago. Net loss per share, basic and diluted was $0.37 against $0.38 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $15,511,000 against net cash used in operating activities of $9,011,000 a year ago. This was better than expected, driven largely by higher cash collections. Purchases of property and equipment were $25,792,000 against $28,409,000 a year ago. Free cash flow was negative $10,281,000 against $37,420,000 a year ago. For the six months, total revenues were $533,653,000 against $346,517,000 a year ago. Loss before provision for income taxes was $132,059,000 against $127,804,000 a year ago. Net loss was $130,979,000 against $128,604,000 a year ago. Net loss per share, basic and diluted was $0.70 against $0.70 a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $109,570,000 against $12,686,000 a year ago. Purchases of property and equipment were $55,972,000 against $38,282,000 a year ago. Free cash flows were $53,598,000 against free cash flow negative of $25,596,000 a year ago. Total revenues for the third quarter are expected to be within a range of $300 million to $303 million or growth of 39% to 41% as compared to last year. From a GAAP perspective, the third quarter interest expense, including $6.4 million of noncash amortizations reflecting the discount and issuance cost of the notes, is approximately $8 million. The interest payments on the notes are made during fiscal second and fourth quarters. The company's capex was relatively light in the first half of the year, but the company continues to expect spending of $150 million during fiscal 2016. Given the significant CapEx ramp in the second half, the company anticipates negative free cash flows for the period.
