Fiscal Third Quarter 2017 GAAP Financial Highlights

Net revenue grew 15% to $476.5 million, as compared to $414.2 million in last year’s fiscal third quarter. The largest contributors to net revenue in fiscal third quarter 2017 were Grand Theft Auto V® and Grand Theft Auto Online, WWE® 2K17, NBA® 2K17, and Sid Meier’s Civilization® VI.

Recurrent consumer spending (virtual currency, microtransactions and downloadable add-on content) accounted for 39% of digitally-delivered net revenue, or 20% of total net revenue. The largest contributors to digitally-delivered net revenue in fiscal third quarter 2017 were Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and NBA 2K17.

Net loss narrowed to $29.8 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, as compared to $42.4 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, for the year-ago period.

Management Comments

“Take-Two had a highly-successful holiday quarter,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. “Consumer demand for our new releases and catalog titles was strong throughout the period, and players continued to engage significantly with our games after purchase. As a result, we delivered better-than-expected bookings, including our best-ever quarter for recurrent consumer spending, along with double-digit growth in both net revenue and net cash provided by operating activities.

“Last week, we deployed a portion of our Company’s cash on hand to acquire Social Point, a highly-successful free-to-play mobile game developer that has a proven track record of growing revenues and delivering multiple hits. We are incredibly excited about this acquisition, which reflects our strategy to deploy our capital resources prudently and to take measured risks that provide immediately accretive opportunities for our business and the potential for long-term growth.

“Looking ahead, our Company has a robust long-term development pipeline and is better positioned for success than at any time in its history. We expect to grow both bookings and net cash provided by operating activities in fiscal 2018, driven by our release slate led by Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated launch of Red Dead Redemption 2.”

  • GAAP net income is expected to range from $108 to $117 million
  • GAAP diluted net income per share is expected to range from $1.15 to $1.25

  • Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $35 million
  • Bookings (operational metric) are expected to range from $1.72 to $1.77 billion

The Company is also providing selected data and its management reporting tax rate of 22% that are used internally by its management and Board of Directors to adjust its GAAP financial outlook in order to facilitate comparison of the Company’s operating performance between periods and to better understand its core business and future outlook:

        1)   Includes 102.0 million basic shares, 1.4 million participating shares and 13.0 million shares representing the potential dilution from convertible notes. The interest expense, net of tax, on the convertible notes, which is added back to net income to calculate diluted net income per share for management reporting purposes is $0.6 million.
2) The individual components of the financial outlook may not foot to the totals as the Company does not expect actual results for every component to be at the low end or high end of the outlook range simultaneously.
3) The Company's stock-based compensation expense for the periods above includes the cost of approximately 0.9 million restricted stock units 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.
4) For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2017, the Company’s fully diluted share count used for management reporting purposes is expected to be 115.5 million, which includes 92.0 million basic shares, 1.6 million participating shares and 21.9 million shares representing the potential dilution from convertible notes. The interest expense, net of tax, on the convertible notes, which is added back to net income to calculate diluted net income per share for management reporting purposes is $4.8 million. Take-Two’s GAAP net income per diluted share outlook is calculated using a diluted share count of 93.6 million (basic shares plus participating shares), because using the “if-converted” method and the Company’s fully diluted share count of 115.5 million would have been anti-dilutive.
 

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 new-generation systems while continuing to leverage opportunities on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC; and stable foreign exchange rates.
