Non-GAAP Net Revenue was $135.4 Million

Non-GAAP Net Loss was $0.44 Per Diluted Share

Increases Financial Outlook for Fiscal Year 2015

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 29, 2014-- Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) today reported better-than-expected financial results for fiscal second quarter 2015, ended September 30, 2014. In addition, the Company increased its financial outlook for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, and provided its initial financial outlook for fiscal third quarter 2015, ending December 31, 2014.

GAAP Financial Results

For fiscal second quarter 2015, GAAP net revenue was $126.3 million, as compared to $148.8 million for fiscal second quarter 2014. GAAP net loss from continuing operations narrowed to $41.4 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $124.1 million, or $1.40 per diluted share, for the year-ago period. GAAP results for fiscal second quarter 2014 excluded net revenue and cost of goods sold related to sell-in of the Grand Theft Auto V® game during that quarter, as Grand Theft Auto Online launched during fiscal third quarter 2014.

As of September 30, 2014, the Company had cash and short-term investments of $803.8 million.

Non-GAAP Financial Results

For fiscal second quarter 2015, Non-GAAP net revenue was $135.4 million, as compared to $1.27 billion for the year-ago period, which had benefited from the record-breaking launch of Grand Theft Auto V. Non-GAAP net loss was $35.4 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, as compared to Non-GAAP net income of $325.6 million, or $2.49 per diluted share, for the year-ago period.

The largest contributors to Non-GAAP net revenue in fiscal second quarter 2015 were catalog sales, which accounted for $134.5 million of Non-GAAP net revenue, led by Grand Theft Auto V, Grand Theft Auto Online, NBA® 2K14, Borderlands® 2, and WWE 2K14.

Non-GAAP net revenue from digitally-delivered content was $89.8 million, as compared to $105.5 million for the year-ago period, which had benefited from the launch of Grand Theft Auto V. The largest contributors were offerings for the Grand Theft Auto series, the NBA 2K franchise, Borderlands 2, and Sid Meier’s Civilization V. Revenue from recurrent consumer spending (virtual currency, downloadable add-on content and online games) grew 45% year-over-year and accounted for 58% of Non-GAAP net revenue from digitally-delivered content.

Management Comments

“Our second quarter results exceeded expectations, driven by strong catalog sales and continued growth in digitally-delivered revenue from recurrent consumer spending,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. “With the successful launches of NBA 2K15, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth and WWE 2K15, our third quarter and holiday season is off to a great start, and there is tremendous anticipation for our upcoming releases, including Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, as well as Evolve - the only title in history to win Game of Show honors at both E3 and Gamescom in the same year.

“As a result of our better-than-expected results, strong current business trends and positive outlook, we are raising our revenue and earnings expectations for the full-year. Fiscal 2015 is poised to be one of our strongest years ever and we are well-positioned for continued success.”

Financial Outlook for Fiscal 2015

Take-Two is increasing its financial outlook for fiscal year 2015, which reflects its better-than-expected fiscal second quarter results, strong current business trends, and positive sales outlook for its upcoming releases. In addition, the Company is providing its initial financial outlook for its fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2014 as follows:

1)

For the fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2014 and fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, the Non-GAAP net income per diluted share outlook is calculated using the “if-converted” method as a result of the issuances of our 1.75% Convertible Notes in November 2011 and 1.00% Convertible Notes in June 2013, and Non-GAAP diluted net income for the third quarter and fiscal year is adjusted by adding-back $1.9 million and $7.4 million, respectively, related to coupon interest and debt issuance costs, net of tax. Shares used to calculate the Non-GAAP net income per diluted share outlook are as follows:

 

Weighted average basic shares

80 Million

80 Million

Add: Weighted average participating shares

8 Million

8 Million

Add: Potential Dilution from convertible notes

26 Million

26 Million

Total weighted average diluted shares

114 Million

114 Million

 
2) All GAAP to Non-GAAP reconciling items are net of tax and per share.
3) The Company's stock-based compensation expense for the periods above includes the cost of approximately 1.8 million restricted shares previously granted to ZelnickMedia that are subject to variable accounting. Actual expense to be recorded in connection with these shares is dependent upon several factors, including future changes in Take-Two's stock price.
 

Key assumptions and dependencies underlying the Company’s financial outlook include: the timely delivery of the titles included in this financial outlook; continued consumer acceptance of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4; the ability to develop and publish products that capture market share for these next-generation systems while continuing to leverage opportunities on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC; and stable foreign exchange rates.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses Non-GAAP measures of financial performance. The Company believes that these Non-GAAP financial measures, when taken into consideration with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, are important in gaining an understanding of the Company’s ongoing business. These Non-GAAP financial measures also provide for comparative results from period to period. Therefore, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude the following Non-GAAP items, net of applicable taxes, as discussed below:

  • Net effect from deferral in net revenues and related cost of goods sold - the Company defers revenue and related costs from the sale of certain titles that have undelivered elements upon the sale of the game and recognizes that revenue upon the delivery of the undelivered elements. As there is no impact to the Company’s operating cash flow, management excludes the impact of deferred net revenue and related costs from its Non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating the Company's operating performance, when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods, and when assessing the performance of its management team. In addition, we believe that these Non-GAAP financial measures provide a more timely indication of trends in our business, provide comparability with the way our business is measured by analysts, and provide consistency with industry data sources.
  • Stock-based compensation – the Company does not consider stock-based compensation charges when evaluating business performance and management does not contemplate stock-based compensation expense in its short- and long-term operating plans. As a result, the Company has excluded such expenses from its Non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Business reorganization, restructuring and related expenses – although the Company has incurred business reorganization expenses in the past, each charge relates to a discrete event based on a unique set of business objectives. Management does not believe these charges reflect the Company's primary business, ongoing operating results or future outlook. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude these expenses and related charges from its Non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Non-cash amortization of discount on convertible notes – the Company records non-cash amortization of discount on convertible notes as interest expense in addition to the interest expense already recorded for coupon payments. The Company excludes the non-cash portion of the interest expense from its Non-GAAP financial measures because these amounts are unrelated to its ongoing business operations.
  • Gain on convertible note hedge and warrants, net – the Company entered into unwind agreements with respect to its convertible note hedge and warrant transactions. As a result of the unwind agreements, these transactions were accounted for as derivatives whereby gains and losses resulting from changes in the fair value were reported as a loss on convertible note hedge and warrants, net. The Company excludes the impact of such transactions when evaluating the Company’s operating performance. Management does not believe these gains and losses reflect the Company's primary business, ongoing operating results or future outlook. As such, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude these gains and losses from its Non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Non-cash tax expense for the impact of deferred tax liabilities associated with tax deductible amortization of goodwill – due to the nature of the adjustment as well as the expectation that it will not have any cash impact in the foreseeable future, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude this expense from its Non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Gain on sale of long-term investment – from time to time, the Company makes strategic investments. The Company excludes the impact of any gains and losses on such investments from its Non-GAAP financial measures.
  • Discontinued operations – the Company does not engage in sales of subsidiaries on a regular basis and therefore believes it is appropriate to exclude such gains (losses) from its Non-GAAP financial measures. As the Company is no longer active in its discontinued operations, it believes it is appropriate to exclude income (losses) thereon from its Non-GAAP financial measures.

These Non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. These Non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly titled measures used by other companies.
