CA Reports Q1 FY2006 Financial Results

Provides Outlook for Q2 FY2006 and Increases FY2006 Operating EPS Guidance

Announces Restructuring Plan to Yield $75 Million in Annualized Savings

ISLANDIA, N.Y., July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Computer Associates International, Inc. (NYSE: CA), one of the world's largest management software companies, today reported financial results for its first quarter fiscal year 2006, ended June 30, 2005.

Financial Overview

(in millions, except share data) Q1FY06 Q1FY05* Change

Revenue $920 $850 8% Operating EPS** $0.22 $0.19 16% GAAP EPS*** $0.15 $0.07 114% Net Income $94 $40 135%

* Q1FY05 results have been restated to reflect the modified retrospective adoption of FAS123®, which changes the method under which the company expenses stock-based compensation, and to reflect other adjustments as disclosed in the company's most recent filing on Form 10-K.

** Operating EPS is a non-GAAP financial measure, as noted in the discussion of non-GAAP results below. A reconciliation of GAAP results to non-GAAP operating income is included in the tables following this press release.

*** Q1FY06 GAAP results include approximately $36 million, or $0.06 per share, of tax credits resulting from the estimated tax associated with the repatriation of cash under the American Jobs Creation Act. Combined with the $55 million tax charge taken in Q4FY05, the net tax impact for the repatriation is expected to be approximately $19 million.

"We've made progress laying the foundation for growth and are now focusing on accelerating the execution of our business strategy," said CA President and Chief Executive Officer John Swainson. "There have been, and will continue to be a number of significant, but necessary transitions at CA. And while the first quarter met our revenue and earnings goals, we need to do additional work to ensure that the changes yield the results intended and help effectively position CA for the long term.

"Enterprise security continues to be a big focus for the market and our European business is showing signs of improvement, both positive indicators for CA. CIOs are interested in working with CA, and our solutions and vision for helping them simplify and achieve the highest ROI from their IT infrastructure investments."

Total bookings for the first quarter decreased 30 percent over the prior year period to $415 million, including $69 million from the Company's indirect business.

Billings for the quarter were $672 million, down 2 percent over the prior year period. Billings for the trailing twelve months, which normalizes quarterly fluctuations and other factors, were $4.3 billion, an increase of 2 percent over the prior trailing twelve months.

"For fiscal year 2006, we modified our sales force compensation plan to drive sales of new products with the end goal of driving billings growth," said CA Chief Operating Officer Jeff Clarke. "At the start of the first quarter, billings were predictably slow due to the sales compensation changes, but they accelerated over the course of the period."

Clarke said that based on this momentum and a review of the Company's second quarter pipeline, the Company is confident it will meet its earlier projections of mid-to-high single digit billings growth for the year. In addition, he said the Company expects to reach 10 percent adjusted, non-GAAP cash flow growth* for the year.

CA reported approximately $93 million in cash flow from operations in the first quarter, compared to the $272 million reported in the similar period last year. On a comparable basis, adjusting for a one-time tax benefit in 2005 of approximately $110 million, cash flow from operations declined by $70 million. The decline is primarily due to fluctuations in working capital, along with timing of interest payments. As previously stated, CA expects GAAP cash flow from operations to decline between 15 percent and 20 percent in fiscal year 2006, primarily due to the aforementioned one-time tax benefit.

Expenses for the quarter totaled $834 million compared with $785 million in the prior year comparable period. The increase in expenses primarily was associated with additional control documentation and testing efforts associated with the Company's compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and legal expenses.

The balance of cash and marketable securities at June 30, 2005, was approximately $1.95 billion, down from $3.13 billion at March 31, 2005. With approximately $1.9 billion in total debt outstanding, the Company has a net cash position of approximately $55 million. During the quarter, the Company repaid $825 million in debt, closed on its acquisition of Concord for approximately $350 million, and executed the repurchase of approximately 3.6 million CA shares.

As part of its continuing effort to improve its overall efficiency and productivity and more closely align the Company's investments with its strategic growth opportunities, CA also announced today a restructuring plan that is expected to yield approximately $75 million in annualized savings. The Company expects to take a charge of between $50 million to $75 million in the second quarter. A separate press release with additional details is available at http://ca.com/press.

Quarterly Progress

During Q1, CA:

- Enhanced the breadth and skill level of its senior leadership team, naming former BEA executive Andrew Dutton to serve as head of its Europe, Middle East and Africa business and former HP executive Claude Pumilia as senior vice president of worldwide sales finance;

- Continued its strategy of acquiring key core technologies in its focus areas of systems and security management for the enterprise, announcing plans to acquire Niku Corporation, a leading provider of IT management and governance solutions, which is expected to close shortly; and closing on its acquisitions of Concord Communications and Tiny Software;

- Focused on delivering value back to shareholders, authorizing the doubling of its dividend to $0.16 per year, and extending its share buyback program to up to $400 million in fiscal year 2006. During the first quarter, CA executed the repurchase of approximately 3.6 million CA shares;

- Advanced its leadership position in enterprise security management, with eTrust Security Command Center being listed in the "Leader" quadrant in Gartner, Inc.'s Security Information and Event Management Magic Quadrant for the second half of 2005;** launching eTrust Anti- Spam; and having eTrust Antivirus incorporated into Check Point's new integrated security gateway;

- Was named the worldwide market leader based on new license revenue in IT Asset Management in 2004 with a 27 percent share, according to a Gartner, Inc. report entitled "Market Share: Enterprise Management, Worldwide, 2004";*** and

- Extended its commitment to the mainframe, announcing plans to open a Mainframe Center of Excellence in Prague and extending measured workload pricing across the mainframe management portfolio to small and medium enterprises.

"Based on this, we are increasing our operating earnings per share guidance range for the full fiscal year 2006 from $0.90 to $0.95, to $0.93 to $0.98."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release includes a financial measure for per share earnings and cash flows that excludes certain items and therefore has not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Non- GAAP "operating" earnings per share excludes the following items: non-cash amortization of acquired technology and other intangibles, in process research and development charges, the government investigation and class settlement charges, restructuring charges, the tax resulting from the planned repatriation of approximately $500 million of foreign cash, and interest on dilutive convertible bonds (the convertible shares rather than the interest, are more dilutive, thus the interest is added back and the shares increased to calculate non-GAAP operating earnings). Non-GAAP taxes are provided based on the estimated effective annual Non-GAAP tax rate. Non-GAAP adjusted cash flows exclude the FY05 benefit from the IRS revenue procedure ruling issued in that year, payments to the restitution fund and restructuring payments. These non- GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. By excluding certain items, non-GAAP financial measures facilitate management's internal comparisons to the Company's historical operating results and cash flows, to competitors' operating results and cash flows, and to estimates made by securities analysts. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate its performance and they are variables in determining management incentive compensation. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency of supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. In addition, the Company has historically reported similar non-GAAP financial measures to its investors and believes that the inclusion of comparative numbers provides consistency in its financial reporting. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, which is attached to this press release.
