NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 7, 2017-- Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) today reported results for its fiscal second quarter 2018, ended September 30, 2017. In addition, the Company provided its initial financial outlook for its fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2017, and updated its financial outlook for its fiscal year ending March 31, 2018.

Fiscal Second Quarter 2018 GAAP Financial Highlights

Net revenue was $443.6 million, as compared to $420.2 million in last year’s fiscal second quarter. Recurrent consumer spending (virtual currency, add-on content and microtransactions) grew 66% year-over-year and accounted for 48% of total net revenue. The largest contributors to net revenue in fiscal second quarter 2018 were NBA® 2K17, Grand Theft Auto® Online and Grand Theft Auto V, WWE® SuperCard and WWE 2K17, and XCOM® 2.

Digitally-delivered net revenue grew 31% to $302.9 million, as compared to $230.8 million in last year’s fiscal second quarter, and accounted for 68% of total net revenue. The largest contributors to digitally-delivered net revenue in fiscal second quarter 2018 were NBA 2K17, Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, XCOM 2, and WWE SuperCard.

Net loss was $2.7 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $36.4 million, or $0.39 per diluted share, for the comparable period last year.

As of September 30, 2017, the Company had cash and short-term investments of $1.263 billion.

The following data, together with a management reporting tax rate of 22%, are used internally by the Company’s management and Board of Directors to adjust the Company’s GAAP financial results in order to facilitate comparison of its operating performance between periods and to better understand its core business and future outlook:

Operational Metric – Net Bookings

As previously announced, starting with fiscal second quarter 2018, Take-Two has changed the name of its operational metric from Net Sales to Net Bookings. The Company has made this change to avoid confusion with the net sales captions used by some companies in their GAAP financial statements, and to be consistent with operational metrics provided by its peers. Net Bookings is defined as the net amount of products and services sold digitally or sold-in physically during the period, and includes licensing fees, merchandise, in-game advertising, strategy guides and publisher incentives. The Company’s definition of Net Bookings is identical to its previous definition of Net Sales.

During fiscal second quarter 2018, total Net Bookings grew 20% to $577.0 million, as compared to $479.4 million during last year’s fiscal second quarter. Net Bookings from recurrent consumer spending grew 84% year-over-year and accounted for 42% of total Net Bookings. The largest contributors to Net Bookings were NBA 2K18 and NBA 2K17, Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, Dragon City and Monster Legends, and XCOM 2.

Catalog accounted for $310.5 million of Net Bookings led by Grand Theft Auto, NBA 2K, Dragon City and Monster Legends, and XCOM 2.

Digitally-delivered Net Bookings grew 52% to $355.7 million, as compared to $234.2 million in last year’s fiscal second quarter, and accounted for 62% of total Net Bookings. The largest contributors to digitally-delivered Net Bookings in fiscal second quarter 2018 were Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, NBA 2K18 and NBA 2K17, Dragon City and Monster Legends, and XCOM 2.

Management Comments

“Our positive momentum continued in the second quarter, enabling Take-Two to deliver another period of better-than-expected operating results,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO of Take-Two. “Grand Theft Auto Online delivered its best quarter yet, Net Bookings from Grand Theft Auto V grew year-over-year, and we enjoyed the successful launch of NBA 2K18, which generated growth in both units sold and recurrent consumer spending.

“As a result of our outperformance in the second quarter and increased forecast for the remainder of the fiscal year, we are raising our fiscal 2018 outlook for Net Bookings and net cash provided by operating activities. We now expect fiscal 2018 to be another year of Net Bookings growth, as well as strong cash flow. Looking ahead, we expect fiscal 2019 to be a record year for Net Bookings and net cash provided by operating activities led by the upcoming launches of Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 and a highly anticipated new title from one of 2K’s biggest franchises. We have a robust development pipeline and are better positioned than ever for long-term growth and margin expansion.”

Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2018

As a result of its better-than-expected fiscal second quarter 2018 operating performance and increased outlook for the remainder of the fiscal year, Take-Two is raising its fiscal year 2018 outlook for Net Bookings and net cash provided by operating activities. In addition, due primarily to higher internal royalties driven by the strong performance of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online, as well as higher equity compensation expense, the Company is reducing its outlook for GAAP net income.

  • GAAP net revenue is expected to range from $1.74 to $1.84 billion
  • GAAP net income is expected to range from $63 to $91 million
  • GAAP diluted net income per share is expected to range from $0.55 to $0.80
  • Share count used to calculate GAAP diluted net income per share is expected to be 113.6 million (4)
  • Net cash provided by operating activities is expected to be approximately $300 million
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be approximately $60 million
  • Net Bookings (operational metric) are expected to range from $1.93 to $2.03 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 the Company’s GAAP financial outlook in order to facilitate comparison of its operating performance between periods and to better understand its core business and future outlook:

    1)   For the fiscal third quarter ending December 31, 2017, the Company’s fully diluted share count used for management reporting purposes is expected to be 119.8 million, which includes 113.6 million basic shares, 4.2 million shares representing the potential dilution from unvested employee stock grants, and 2.0 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 $0.1 million. Take-Two’s GAAP net income per diluted share outlook is calculated using its basic share count of 113.6 million because using the “if-converted” method and the Company’s fully diluted share count of 119.8 million would have been anti-dilutive.
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 0.6 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, 2018, the Company’s fully diluted share count used for management reporting purposes is expected to be 118.8 million, which includes 110.0 million basic shares, 3.6 million shares representing the potential dilution from unvested employee stock grants, and 5.2 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 $1.0 million. Take-Two’s GAAP net income per diluted share outlook is calculated using a diluted share count of 113.6 million (basic shares plus unvested employee stock grants ), because using the “if-converted” method and the Company’s fully diluted share count of 118.8 million would have been anti-dilutive.
5) Includes $2.4 million of stock-based compensation related to business reorganization.
 

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 also leveraging opportunities on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and mobile platforms; and stable foreign exchange rates.
