CA, Inc. (NASDAQ:CA), the world's leading independent IT management software company, today announced results for its second quarter fiscal year 2009, ended September 30, 2008.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has authorized the buyback of up to $250 million of its common shares. The Company will fund the program with available cash on hand and may repurchase shares on the open market from time to time based on market conditions and other factors.

"CA recorded another solid quarter, meeting its objectives in a challenging economic environment," said John Swainson, CA's chief executive officer. "Over the past few years we have taken steps to increase efficiency, improve our cost structure, foster stronger and deeper relationships with our customers, and deliver the industry's most innovative products. These efforts are driving our results. We believe our products remain critical to the success of our customers and that we are well positioned to navigate the current environment.

"Based on our first half performance and our outlook for the remainder of the fiscal year, we are increasing our annual guidance for GAAP and non-GAAP earnings, bookings and cash flow from operations," Swainson said. "We are updating our revenue outlook to indicate that we anticipate full year total revenue growth to be at the lower end of our guidance.

"The authorization of a share repurchase program," Swainson said, "is an indication of our strong cash position, confidence in CA's long-term prospects and our dedication to building shareholder value."

Total revenue for the second quarter was $1.107 billion, up 4 percent from the $1.067 billion reported in the similar period last fiscal year.

Weighted average life of subscription and maintenance bookings* in the second quarter increased to 4.14 years, compared with 2.97 years in the prior fiscal year period, due in part to several large contract renewals with durations of five years including the above mentioned contract renewal.

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2009

The Company updated its fiscal year 2009 annual outlook based on current expectations. The following represents "forward-looking statements" (as defined below).

The Company increased its outlook in the following areas:

-- Total bookings growth from 10 to 15 percent, up from the previous mid-to-high single digits guidance;

-- GAAP earnings per common diluted share to $1.31 to $1.38 from $1.28 to $1.35, an increase over the prior fiscal year of 41 percent to 48 percent. The outlook continues to include about $30 million in charges related to previously disclosed restructuring plans;

-- Non-GAAP earnings per share to $1.48 to $1.55 from $1.45 to $1.52 per diluted common share, an increase over the prior fiscal year of 24 percent to 30 percent; and,

-- Full-year cash flow from operations of $1.15 billion to $1.20 billion, from $1.15 billion to $1.18 billion, an increase over the prior fiscal year of 4 percent to 9 percent. The outlook continues to include about $120 million in payments related to previously disclosed restructuring plans and relatively flat cash taxes year-over-year.

The Company also said it anticipates that its full year total revenue growth will be at the lower end of its guidance in constant currency at 2 percent. At current currency exchange rates, this translates to reported revenue of about $4.3 billion.

Except as otherwise noted, guidance reflects current foreign currency exchange rates, assumes no material acquisitions and a partial currency hedge of operating income. Guidance does not include any impact from the stock repurchase program announced today.

The Company anticipates approximately 517 million shares outstanding at fiscal 2009 year-end and a weighted average diluted share count of approximately 541 million for the fiscal year. The Company also expects a full-year tax rate on non-GAAP income of approximately 37 percent.

A reconciliation of each non-GAAP measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the tables provided as part of this press release.

This news release and the accompanying tables should be read in conjunction with additional content that is available on the Company's website, including a supplemental financial package as well as a webcast that the Company will host at 4:15 p.m. ET today to discuss its second quarter fiscal year 2009 results.

* As previously disclosed, beginning with the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, the Company has modified the way in which it reports bookings and weighted average life duration in an effort to align these metrics with amounts it expects to recognize as revenue.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release, the accompanying tables and the additional content that is available on the Company's website, including a supplemental financial package, includes certain financial measures that exclude the impact of certain items and therefore have not been calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Non-GAAP metrics for operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, income from operations and diluted earnings per share exclude the following items: non-cash amortization of purchased software and other intangibles, charges for in-process research and development costs, restructuring and other charges and the gains and losses on hedges of operating income relating to future periods.Non-GAAP income also excludes the interest on convertible bonds. The effective tax rate on GAAP and non-GAAP income from operations is the Company's provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of pre-tax GAAP and non-GAAP income from operations, respectively. Such tax rates are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate, with the effective tax rate for GAAP generally including the impact of discrete items in the quarter such items arise and the effective tax rate for non-GAAP income generally allocating the impact of such items pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining reporting periods. Non-GAAP adjusted cash flow excludes restructuring and other payments. Free cash flow excludes capital expenditures. 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 these 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 key 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 news release to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are attached to this news release.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

We have assessed and will continue to assess the impact on our business of the general economic downturn and the related impact on the financial services sector in particular. Approximately one third of our revenue comes from arrangements with financial institutions (i.e., banking, brokerage and insurance companies). The majority of these arrangements are for the renewal of mainframe capacity and maintenance associated with transactions processed by such financial institutions. While we cannot predict what impact there may be on our business from further consolidation of the financial industry sector, or the impact from the economy in general on our business, to date the impact has not been material to our balance sheet, results of operations or cash flows. The vast majority of our subscription and maintenance revenue in any particular reporting period comes from contracts signed in prior periods, generally pursuant to contracts ranging in duration from three to five years.

Certain statements in this communication (such as statements containing the words "believes," "plans," "anticipates," "expects," "estimates" and similar expressions) constitute "forward-looking statements" that are based upon the beliefs of, and assumptions made by, the Company's management, as well as information currently available to management. These forward-looking statements reflect the Company's current views with respect to future events and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and assumptions. A number of important factors could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements, including: the timing of orders from customers and channel partners may cause fluctuations in some of the Company's key financial metrics; given the global nature of the Company's business, economic factors or political events beyond the Company's control can affect its business in unpredictable ways; changes to the compensation of the Company's sales organization and changes to the Company's sales coverage model and organization could adversely affect the Company's business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow; if the Company does not adequately manage and evolve its financial reporting and managerial systems and processes, including the successful implementation of its enterprise resource planning software, its ability to manage and grow its business may be harmed; the Company may encounter difficulty in successfully integrating acquired companies and products into its existing businesses; the Company is subject to intense competition in product and service offerings and pricing and increased competition is expected in the future; the Company's business may suffer if it is not able to retain and attract qualified personnel, including key managerial, technical, marketing and sales personnel; failure to adapt to technological change in a timely manner could materially adversely affect the Company's revenue and earnings; if the Company's products do not remain compatible with ever-changing operating environments, it could lose customers and the demand for its products and services could decrease; the Company may lose access to third party operating systems or certain third party software that the Company uses in daily operations, either of which could delay product development and production; certain software the Company uses is from open source code sources, which, under certain circumstances, may lead to unintended consequences; discovery of errors in the Company's software could materially adversely affect the Company's revenue and earnings and subject the Company to product liability claims, which may be costly and time consuming; the Company's credit ratings have been downgraded in the past and could be downgraded further which would require the Company to pay additional interest under its credit agreement and could adversely affect its ability to borrow; the Company has a significant amount of debt; the failure to protect the Company's intellectual property rights and source code would weaken its competitive position; the Company may become dependent upon large transactions with customers; the Company's sales to government customers subject it to risks, including early termination, audits, investigations, sanctions and penalties; the Company's software products and the Company's and customers' data centers and IT environments may be subject to hacking or other breaches, harming the market perception of the effectiveness of the Company's products; general economic conditions, including concerns regarding a potential global recession and credit constraints, or unfavorable economic conditions in a particular region, business or industry sector, may lead the Company's customers to delay or forgo technology investments and could have other impacts; the market for some or all of the Company's key product areas may not grow; the use of third party microcode could negatively affect the Company's product development; the Company may lose access to third party operating systems, which could negatively affect the Company's product development; third parties could claim that the Company's products infringe their intellectual property rights or that the Company owes royalty payments; fluctuations in foreign currencies could result in translation losses; the Company has outsourced various functions to third parties and these arrangements may not be successful; potential tax liabilities may materially adversely affect the Company's results; and these factors and the other factors described more fully in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

       future periods.
(3)    Excluding stock based compensation of $23 and $28, non-GAAP
       operating margin would have been 33% and 30% for the three months
       ended September 30, 2008 and 2007, respectively. On a year to date
       basis, excluding stock based compensation of $48 and $49, non-GAAP
       operating margin would have been 34% and 28% for the six months
       ended September 30, 2008 and 2007, respectively.
(4)    The effective tax rate on non-GAAP income is the Company's
       provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of non-GAAP
       income before income taxes. Such tax rate is determined based on an
       estimated effective full year tax rate and the impacts of certain
       discrete items (such as decreases in non-US tax rates,
       reconciliations of tax returns to tax provisions and resolutions of
       tax contingencies).
(5)    Non-GAAP income and the number of shares used in the computation of
       non-GAAP diluted EPS for all periods presented have been adjusted to
       reflect the dilutive impact of the Company's
       1.625 % Convertible Senior Notes and stock awards outstanding.

       future periods.
(2)    The effective tax rate on non-GAAP income is the Company's
       provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of non-GAAP
       income from operations before income taxes. Such tax rate is
       determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate and
       the impacts of certain discrete items (such as decreases in non-US
       tax rates, reconciliations of tax returns to tax provisions and
       resolutions of tax contingencies).

       income taxes on a GAAP basis to income before income taxes on a
       non-GAAP basis.
(2)    The effective tax rate for GAAP generally includes the impact of
       discrete items in the period such items arise, whereas the effective
       tax rate for non-GAAP generally allocates the impact of such items
       pro rata to the fiscal year's remaining
       reporting periods.
(3)    The effective tax rate on GAAP and non-GAAP income is the Company's
       provision for income taxes expressed as a percentage of GAAP and
       non-GAAP income before income taxes, respectively. Such tax rates
       are determined based on an estimated effective full year tax rate
       and the impacts of certain discrete items (such as decreases in
       non-US tax rates, reconciliations of tax returns to tax provisions
       and resolutions of tax contingencies).
