Part I
 
ITEM 1. BUSINESS.
 
(a)  General Development of Business
Overview
CA, Inc. is the leading independent enterprise information technology (IT) software and service company with expertise across IT environments — from mainframe and physical to virtual and cloud. We develop and deliver software and services that help organizations manage and secure their IT infrastructures and deliver more flexible IT services. This allows companies to more effectively and efficiently respond to business needs.
 
We address most of the components of the computing environment, including people, information, processes, systems, networks, applications and databases, regardless of the hardware or software customers are using. We have a broad portfolio of software products that address our customers’ needs, with a specific focus on: service management and assurance; project and portfolio management; and security (identity and access management). We deliver our products on-premise or, for certain products, via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
 
Fiscal 2010 Business Developments and Highlights
The following are some significant developments and highlights relating to our business since the beginning of fiscal 2010:
 
    In March 2010, we acquired Nimsoft AS, a leading provider of IT performance and availability monitoring solutions for emerging enterprises and managed service providers, both of which are playing leading roles in the growth of cloud computing. The acquisition is expected to extend our leadership across the service management and assurance market, while expanding our reach to a new set of customers beyond our existing base, which historically has been composed of large enterprises.
 
    In March 2010, we acquired 3Tera, Inc., a pioneer in cloud deployment, to expand our portfolio of solutions to simplify and automate the provisioning of applications into the cloud environment.
 
    In January 2010, we acquired Oblicore, Inc., a leading provider of Service Level Management software for enterprises and service providers. The acquisition of Oblicore extends our capabilities in cloud vendor management and assurance of cloud service quality.
 
    In November 2009, we acquired NetQoS, Inc., a leading provider of network performance management and service delivery solutions.

    In November 2009, we adopted a new Stockholder Protection Rights Plan to replace our existing Rights Plan, which expired on November 30, 2009.
 
    In October 2009, we released 12 new and updated products to help enterprises and service providers realize greater cost savings, efficiency and flexibility from virtualized computing environments with IT management, governance, automation and security capabilities. Included in this release was our first solution to provide real-time visibility into application performance across mainframe and distributed environments.
 
    In July 2009, we introduced a unified solution to improve the management of next-generation virtualized data centers and private clouds that helps customers more easily manage physical and virtual server and network environments as well as databases, voice and unified communications systems and other networked applications to expedite problem identification and resolution.
 
    In June 2009, we acquired the data center automation and policy-based optimization assets of Cassatt Corporation, a provider of innovative cloud computing software that makes data centers more efficient.
 
    In May 2009, we released substantial upgrades to 143 mainframe management solutions as part of our Mainframe 2.0 effort to help customers take full advantage of the benefits of mainframe computing.
 
    In April 2009, we released 13 new and enhanced solutions designed to help Chief Information Officers (CIOs) reduce waste, increase productivity and improve the customer experience in physical and virtual environments. Our solutions cover a range of IT management areas including security, infrastructure, service, recovery, project and portfolio management and application performance management.
 
    During fiscal 2010, we reduced our debt outstanding and increased our weighted average maturity, enhancing our capital structure and financial flexibility. We issued $750 million in 10-year 5.375% Senior Notes in November 2009 and utilized the proceeds to pay down $500 million of the $750 million then drawn on our $1 billion credit facility. Total debt decreased from $1,908 million as of March 31, 2009 to $1,545 million as of March 31, 2010, and the weighted average maturity of our debt increased from 3.2 years as of March 31, 2009 to 6.9 years as of March 31, 2010.
 
    During fiscal 2010, we repurchased 10.0 million shares of our common stock. In April 2010, we repurchased an additional 0.8 million shares, which completed the share repurchase authorization of $250 million announced in October 2008. In May 2010, our Board of Directors approved a new repurchase program that authorizes us to acquire up to $500 million of our common stock.
 
We made the following changes to management and our Board of Directors:
 
    In May 2010, our Board of Directors elected Arthur F. Weinbach as non-executive Chairman of the Board. Mr. Weinbach, who has served on the Company’s Board of Directors since 2008, is currently Executive Chairman of Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. and previously was Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP).
 
    In January 2010, our Board of Directors elected William E. McCracken as Chief Executive Officer, succeeding John A. Swainson, who retired as CEO in December 2009. Mr. McCracken has been a director of the Company since 2005. He was non-executive Chairman of the Board from June 2007 to September 2009 and interim Executive Chairman of the Board from September 2009 to January 2010, and he served as executive Chairman of the Board from January 2010 to May 2010.
 
    In November 2009, Richard Sulpizio was elected to our Board of Directors and named to both the Board’s Compensation and Human Resources Committee and the Corporate Governance Committee. Mr. Sulpizio is president and CEO of Qualcomm Enterprise Services, a division of Qualcomm, Inc.
 
(b)  Financial Information About Segments
Our global business consists of a single operating segment — the design, development, marketing, licensing and support of IT management software products that operate on a wide range of hardware platforms and operating systems. Refer to Note 5 “Segment and Geographic Information,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for financial data pertaining to our segment and geographic operations.
 
(c)  Narrative Description of the Business
As the leading independent enterprise IT management software and service company, we develop and deliver software and services that help organizations manage and secure their IT infrastructures and adopt new technologies and more flexible IT

services. Our products are designed to work in a wide range of IT environments — from mainframe and physical to virtual and cloud. This allows companies to more effectively and efficiently respond to business.
 
During fiscal 2010, we supported our customers’ needs to manage and securely access technology so that high-quality IT services were delivered to our customers at a competitive cost. Increasingly, organizations need their IT to be more responsive and flexible. Organizations need better utilization of their physical environments, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of new technologies like virtualization and cloud computing to significantly increase productivity, flexibility and business responsiveness. As companies add new technologies, their IT environments become more complex and difficult to manage and secure. We believe this trend offers opportunities for us to sell new technologies and services to existing customers and acquire new customers beyond our core large enterprise customers and in new geographies.
 
Our IT management and security software and services are designed to enable organizations to effectively manage complex IT environments, regardless of their infrastructure. Our management and security solutions allow customers to manage their environments through cutting-edge monitoring technology, intelligent automation capabilities, integral security features and easy-to-use tools and dashboards. Our products help IT organizations:
 
    Increase the productivity of their physical infrastructure through faster response times and better performance. We automate processes, drive efficiencies and create intuitive end-user experiences.
 
    Adopt, deliver and manage virtual services through heightened operational efficiency and seamless integration with their current infrastructure. Intelligent automation frees up resources, and robust identity and access management provides security.
 
    Design and build internal or “private” clouds, and use external clouds and source IT resources in new ways.
 
Business Strategy
Our strategy is to continue to build on our portfolio of IT management and security software and services to meet current needs and next-generation opportunities by investing in areas where we have a leadership position or which we believe represent the fastest growing markets. We expect these investments to allow us to pursue new markets and geographies. We are investing in the following strategic areas to help customers manage and secure their existing IT infrastructure and adopt new technologies and more flexible IT services:
 
Manage
    Service Management and Assurance, where we are a leader in application performance management and network performance management. We enable customers to manage their infrastructures to identify and minimize problems before they affect users. Our products include CA NSM, CA eHealth ® , CA Wily Introscope ® and CA Spectrum ® Infrastructure Manager.
 
    Mainframe, where we are the leading independent software vendor. We continue to innovate on this platform that runs many of our largest customers’ most important applications. Our Mainframe 2.0 strategy helps customers and partners simplify mainframe management, gain more value from existing technology and extend mainframe capabilities. Our products include CA DB2 Tools, CA IDMS tm , CA Easytrieve ® and CA Endevor ® .
 
    Project and Portfolio Management, where we are a leader with our CA Clarity tm Project & Portfolio Management product, which helps customers quickly improve IT investment decisions, enhance productivity and execute projects at a higher value and lower cost.
 
Secure
    Security, where we are a leader in identity and access management. We enable customers to understand and control what users have done, who can access particular systems and what users can do. Our security portfolio includes CA Access Control, CA SiteMinder ® , CA Identity Manager and CA Single Sign-On.
 
Enable the Adoption of New Technologies
    Virtualization and Automation, where we enable customers to manage multiple virtual and underlying physical platforms to increase efficiency and reliability at a reduced cost. We centrally manage virtualization through real-time visibility and control, helping to improve quality, efficiency and agility and reduce risk with products including CA IT Client Manager, CA AutoSys ® Workload Automation, CA Service Desk Manager and CA 7 ® Workload Automation.

    Cloud Computing, which we define as a model for convenient, on-demand access to a shared pool of computing resources that customers can configure and use as needed. Cloud computing is delivered as Software-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service both within a customer’s data center and over the Internet. As a leading provider of management and security software, we enable customers to more efficiently and effectively adopt cloud computing. Our acquisitions of Nimsoft, 3Tera, NetQoS, Oblicore and Cassatt assets extend our cloud computing capabilities.
 
Because of the easy-to-use and on-demand nature of SaaS, we expect increased demand from existing and prospective customers for products delivered in this manner. As a result, we intend to offer an increasing number of our products as SaaS solutions. We have been delivering CA Clarity PPM On Demand as a SaaS offering since November 2008.
 
In addition, we believe SaaS offerings will appeal to managed service providers, who are adept at delivering IT management services through SaaS way and who extend our reach by offering these capabilities to their own customers. We expect SaaS offerings will also appeal to emerging enterprises, which we believe will be early adopters of cloud services due to their desire for easy-to-install software and limited up-front investments. This is a new and important market for us, and one to which we believe we can gain access through our Nimsoft acquisition. There are an estimated 14,000 emerging enterprises, which we define as companies with annual revenue between $300 million and $2 billion. We also are pursuing emerging geographic markets where we believe cloud computing and hosted or managed services are key to business development.
 
Sales and Marketing
We offer our solutions through our direct sales force, and indirectly through global systems integrators, managed service providers, technology partners, value-added resellers, exclusive representatives, and distributors and volume partners. We have a disciplined, structured and systematic selling process through which we concentrate on our focus areas for IT environments from mainframe and physical to virtual and cloud. Our sales and marketing process includes carefully managing the customer lifecycle by continually improving the customer experience from purchase to deployment and beyond.
 
Our growth strategy is intended to allow us to reach a broader range of customers and deepen existing relationships while opening the door for us to cross-sell and up-sell additional solutions. We rely on our marketing organization to help us identify new market opportunities, provide fact-based insight on industry and customer trends, and build awareness of our products globally to help drive sales.
 
Our sales organization operates globally. We operate through branches, subsidiaries and partners around the world. Approximately 45% of our revenue in fiscal 2010 was from operations outside of the United States. As of March 31, 2010 and March 31, 2009, we had approximately 3,400 and 3,200 sales and sales support personnel, respectively. In certain geographic locations, including in the Asia Pacific and Japan region, we use our distribution and resale partners as our primary selling vehicle. In other geographic locations, primarily in the Middle East and Africa, we have started to use exclusive representatives as our primary selling vehicle.
 
CA Customer Lifecycle Management
We have a coordinated process to guide customers through installing, deploying and leveraging IT management software. Our goal is to stay proactive and attuned to customers’ needs, ensuring customers gain business value at every stage.
 
We strive to provide a continuous and seamless customer experience by bringing a range of resources together in one place: support, education, services, networking opportunities and expert guidance from us and our partners. We support this process through an approach that makes it easy for customers to find and take advantage of our resources through one online portal. This coordinated and focused attention on driving customer value is designed to increase product adoption, improve our renewal value, increase customer partnerships and create opportunities for new sales.
 
Partners
Strategic partners are an important component of how we do business. We leverage partners to accelerate sales through new routes to market, complement our technology and services, provide more comprehensive offerings, and help build brand awareness. We continue to build strategic alliances to broaden our coverage of new market segments and increase our competitive advantage.

We work with several types of partners:
 
    Global Systems Integrators (GSIs) offer our products and solutions in their business practices and leverage their process design, planning, and vertical expertise to ensure that holistic solutions and services are enabled to benefit our customers. These relationships provide a strong route to market for our products and solutions.
 
    Managed Service Providers use our software products and solutions to deliver IT services to organizations that prefer to outsource their IT operations or enable specific services provided by these partners. As customers look toward outsourcing IT services, this is an important market for us going forward. Our acquisition of Nimsoft greatly broadens our ability to reach into this market.
 
    Technology Partners enable strong product integration and technical collaboration by helping us ensure that our products and our partners’ products deliver comprehensive solutions to our customers’ IT environments. In addition to ensuring our software remains compatible with complementary hardware and software, these valued partners help us adapt and respond to the emergence of new technologies and trends, such as virtualization and cloud computing, to ensure that the release of new IT solutions is coupled with management tools that support those installations.
 
    Value-Added Resellers combine our software products with specialized consulting services and provide enhanced, user-specific solutions to a particular market or sector. Their expertise in best practices, training and other services add value to our offerings as they target the needs of specialized customers.
 
    Distributors and Volume Partners enable us to broaden our reach to the small and medium business market segment. These partners provide efficient and personalized local delivery, service and support to our customers in this market.
 
    Exclusive Representatives represent our interests in a growth or emerging territory on an exclusive basis. These partners have been chosen for their deep understanding of the applicable territory and have an established business within the region. We believe the combination of these factors will help us accelerate our penetration of these markets.
 
Customers
We have a large and broad base of customers, including the majority of the Forbes Global 2000. Most of our revenue is generated from enterprise customers who have the ability to make substantial commitments to software and hardware implementations. Our growth strategy is aimed at expanding our reach into the mid-market and emerging markets, and with emerging enterprises and managed service providers. Our software products are used in a broad range of industries, businesses and applications. We currently service companies across most major industries worldwide, including banks, insurance companies, other financial services providers, governmental agencies, manufacturers, technology companies, retailers, educational institutions and health care institutions.
 
When customers enter into software license agreements with us, they often pay for the right to use our software for a specified period of time. When the terms of these agreements expire, the customers may either renew the license agreements or pay usage and maintenance fees, if applicable, for the right to continue to use our software, receive support, and/or receive future upgrades. Our customers’ satisfaction is important to us and we believe that our flexible business model allows us to maintain our customer base while allowing us to cross-sell new software products and services to them.
 
No individual customer accounted for a material portion of our revenue during any of the past three fiscal years.
 
Research and Development
We invest in product development and enhancements to bring innovative solutions to market and to ensure that our products are compatible with hardware and operating system changes and our customers’ evolving needs. We focus our development efforts for new and updated products by investing in areas where we have a leadership position or we believe represent the fastest growing segments of our markets: service management and assurance; mainframe; project and portfolio management; security; virtualization and automation; cloud computing; and Software-as-a-Service.
 
Our research and development activities also include a number of efforts to support our technical community in its pursuit of leading solutions for customers. CA Labs strengthens our relationships with research communities by enabling us to work with academia, professional associations, industry standards bodies, customers and partners to explore novel products and emerging technologies. Our CA Council for Technical Excellence leads innovative projects designed to promote communication, collaboration and synergy throughout our global technical community. We also formed the CA Architecture Board to ensure a

5


Table of Contents

strong central architecture that supports our growth strategy and the Distinguished Engineer Board to encourage and recognize excellence in engineering.
 
To keep us on top of major technological advances and to ensure our products continue to work well with those of other vendors, we are active in most major industry standards organizations and take the lead on many issues. Our professionals are certified across key standards, including ITIL ® , PMI and CISPP, and possess knowledge and expertise in key vertical markets, such as financial services, government, telecommunications, insurance, health care, manufacturing and retail. Further, we were the first major software company to earn the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) 9001:2000 Global Certification. In addition, our Global IT Operation has attained ISO/IEC 20000-1:2005 and ISO/IEC 27001:2005 certifications. These certifications demonstrate our leadership in IT service management and information security.
 
We have approximately 5,900 engineers globally who design and support our software. We have charged to operations $476 million, $486 million and $526 million in fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively, for product development and enhancements. In fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, we capitalized costs of $188 million, $129 million and $112 million, respectively, for internally developed software.
 
Our development organization is dedicated to engineering market-leading solutions that meet the needs of customers around the world. We drive innovation throughout our organization by enabling developers in Canada, China, the Czech Republic, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States to collaborate in both physical and virtual labs.
 
In the United States, product development is primarily performed at our facilities in Redwood City and San Francisco, California; Lisle, Illinois; Framingham, Massachusetts; Ewing, New Jersey; Islandia, New York; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Plano, Texas; and Herndon, Virginia.
 
Patents and Trademarks
Certain aspects of our products and technology are proprietary. We rely on U.S. and foreign intellectual property laws, including patent, copyright, trademark and trade secret laws to protect our proprietary rights. However, the extent and duration of protection given to different types of intellectual property rights vary under different countries’ legal systems. In some countries, full-scale intellectual property protection for our products and technology may be unavailable, or the laws of other jurisdictions may not protect our proprietary technology rights to the same extent as the laws of the United States. We also maintain contractual restrictions in our agreements with customers, employees and others to protect our intellectual property rights. In addition, we occasionally license software and technology from third parties, including some competitors, and incorporate them into our own software products.
 
We expect to maintain a portfolio of U.S. and foreign patents that generally expire at various times over the next 20 years. Although the durations and geographic coverage for our patents may vary, we believe our patent portfolio adequately protects our interests. We expect to maintain a patent portfolio that includes more than 400 issued patents and 700 pending applications in the United States and the European Union.
 
The source code for our products are protected both as trade secrets and as copyrighted works. Some of our customers are beneficiaries of a source code escrow arrangement that enables them to obtain a contingent, limited right to access our source code.
 
We are not aware of any of our products or technologies infringing on the proprietary rights of third parties. Third parties, however, have asserted and may assert infringement claims against us with respect to our products, and any such assertion may require us to enter into royalty arrangements or result in costly and time-consuming litigation. Although we have a number of U.S. and foreign patents and pending applications that may have value to various aspects of our products and technology, we are not aware of any single patent that is essential to us or to any of our principal business product areas.
 
Product Licensing
Our licensing model offers customers a wide range of purchasing and payment options. Under our flexible licensing terms, customers can license our software products under multi-year licenses or on a month-to-month basis, with most customers choosing terms of one to three years, although longer terms are sometimes negotiated in order to obtain greater cost certainty. We also help customers reduce uncertainty by providing a standard pricing schedule based on simple usage tiers. Additionally, we offer our customers the ability to establish pricing models for our products based on their key business metrics. Although this practice is not widely used by our customers, we believe this metric-based approach can provide us with a competitive advantage in certain circumstances.

Table of Contents

With respect to licenses sold for our mainframe products, we offer our customers the right to receive unspecified future software products for no additional fee, and we include maintenance during the term of the license. With respect to licenses sold for most of our distributed products, we do not offer our customers unspecified future software products and do not always include maintenance with the license sale. For a description of our revenue recognition policies, refer to Note 1, “Significant Accounting Policies,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
Competition
The enterprise information technology business is highly competitive and is marked by rapid technological change, the steady emergence of new companies and products, evolving industry standards and changing customer needs. We compete with many established companies in the markets we serve. Some of these companies have substantially greater financial, marketing, and technological resources, broader distribution capabilities, earlier access to customers, and a greater opportunity to address customers’ various information technology requirements than we do. These factors may at times provide some of our competitors with an advantage in penetrating markets with their products.
 
We also compete with many smaller, less established companies that may be able to focus more effectively on specific product areas or markets. Because of the breadth of our product portfolio, we have competitors who may only compete with us in one product area and other competitors who compete across most or all of our product portfolios. Competitive differentiators include, but are not limited to: industry vision, performance, quality, breadth of product offerings, expertise, integration of products, brand name recognition, price, functionality, customer support, frequency of upgrades and updates, manageability of products and reputation. Some of our key competitors are IBM, HP, Oracle, BMC and Symantec.
 
We believe that we are well positioned and have a unique competitive advantage in the marketplace for a number of reasons:
 
    The breadth and quality of our products, and their ability to integrate with existing customer technology investments. Our products manage IT in most environments — from mainframe and physical to virtual and cloud. As new technologies are introduced, we continue to pursue integration to help customers see how the different elements of IT — hardware, software and staff — work together to deliver a service to the business.
 
    The depth of our technical expertise, and our commitment to open standards and innovation.
 
    Our independence, which means we do not have a preferred hardware, software or operating system platform agenda.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.
 
Current and potential stockholders should consider carefully the risk factors described below. Any of these factors, many of which are beyond our control, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results, cash flow and stock price.
 
Failure to achieve success in our growth strategy could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Our current strategy emphasizes accelerating our growth. This strategy is designed to build on our portfolio of software and services to meet next-generation market opportunities. This strategy is focused on seven key areas: service management and assurance; mainframe; project and portfolio management; security; virtualization and automation; cloud computing; and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). The success of this growth strategy could be affected by many of the risk factors discussed in this Form 10-K and also by our ability to:
 
    Increase sales in new and emerging enterprises and markets where we currently may not have a strong presence and where we may have a dependence on unfamiliar distribution partners and routes;
 
    Enable our sales force to sell new products and SaaS offerings, including instances where the SaaS offerings are of a type not previously provided by us; and
 
    Improve the CA brand in the marketplace, including as it relates to our ability to sell new products and penetrate new or emerging markets.
 
Failure to achieve success with this strategy could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Given the global nature of our business, economic factors or political events beyond our control and other business risks associated with non-U.S. operations can affect our business in unpredictable ways.
International revenue has historically represented a significant percentage of our total worldwide revenue. Success in selling and developing our products outside the United States will depend on a variety of factors in various non-U.S. locations, including:
 
    Foreign exchange currency rates;
 
    Local economic conditions;
 
    Political stability and acts of terrorism;
 
    Workforce reorganizations in various locations, including global reorganizations of sales, research and development, technical services, finance, human resources and facilities functions;
 
    Effectively staffing key managerial and technical positions;
 
    Successfully localizing software products for a significant number of international markets;
 
    More restrictive employment regulation;
 
    Trade restrictions such as tariffs, duties, taxes or other controls;
 
    International intellectual property laws, which may be more restrictive or may offer lower levels of protection than U.S. law;
 
    Complying with differing and changing local laws and regulations in multiple international locations as well as complying with U.S. laws and regulations where applicable in these international locations; and
 
    Developing and executing an effective go-to-market strategy in various locations.
 
Any of the foregoing factors could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.

General economic conditions, including concerns regarding a global recession and credit constraints, or unfavorable economic conditions in a particular region, business or industry sector, may lead our customers to delay or forgo technology investments and could have other impacts, any of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Our products are designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of our customers’ information processing resources. However, a general slowdown or recession in the global economy, or in a particular region, or business or industry sector (such as the financial services sector), or tightening of credit markets, could cause customers to: have difficulty accessing credit sources; delay contractual payments; or delay or forgo decisions to (i) license new products (particularly with respect to discretionary spending for software), (ii) upgrade their existing environments or (iii) purchase services. Any such impacts could adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Such a general slowdown or recession in the global economy may also materially affect the global banking system, including individual institutions as well as a particular business or industry sector, which could cause further consolidations or failures in such a sector. Approximately one third of our revenue is derived 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 our financial institution customers. 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.
 
These adverse financial events could also result in further government intervention in the U.S. and world markets. Any of these results could affect the manner in which we are able to conduct business, including within a particular industry sector or market and could adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Failure to expand our channel partner programs related to the sale of CA solutions may result in lost sales opportunities, increases in expenses and a weakening in our competitive position.
We sell CA solutions through global systems integrators, managed service providers and value-added resellers in channel partner programs that require training and expertise to sell these solutions, and global penetration to grow these aspects of our business. The failure to expand these channel partner programs and penetrate these markets could materially adversely affect our success with channel partners, resulting in lost sales opportunities and an increase in expenses, as well as weaken our competitive position.
 
If we do not adequately manage and evolve our financial reporting and managerial systems and processes, including the successful implementation of our enterprise resource planning software, our ability to manage and grow our business may be harmed.
Our ability to successfully implement our business plan and comply with regulations requires effective planning and management systems and processes. We need to continue to improve and implement existing and new operational and financial systems, procedures and controls to manage our business effectively in the future. As a result, we have licensed enterprise resource planning software, consolidated certain finance functions into regional locations, and are in the process of expanding and upgrading our operational and financial systems. Any delay in the implementation of, or disruption in the transition to, our new or enhanced systems, procedures or internal controls, could adversely affect our ability to accurately forecast sales demand, manage our supply chain, achieve accuracy in the conversion of electronic data and records, and report financial and management information, including the filing of our quarterly or annual reports with the SEC, on a timely and accurate basis. Failure to properly or adequately address these issues could result in the diversion of management’s attention and resources, adversely affect our ability to manage our business and materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flow. Refer to Item 9A, “Controls and Procedures,” for additional information.

We may encounter difficulties in successfully integrating companies and products that we have acquired or may acquire into our existing business, and any failed integration could materially adversely affect our infrastructure, market presence, business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
In the past we have acquired, and in the future we expect to acquire, complementary companies, products, services and technologies (including through mergers, asset acquisitions, joint ventures, partnerships, strategic alliances, and equity investments). Additionally, we expect to acquire technology and software that are consistent with our growth strategy. The risks we may encounter include:
 
    We may find that the acquired company or assets do not further improve our financial and strategic position as planned;
 
    We may have difficulty integrating the operations, facilities, personnel and commission plans of the acquired business;
 
    We may have difficulty forecasting or reporting results subsequent to acquisitions;
 
    We may have difficulty retaining the skills needed to further market, sell or provide services on the acquired products in a manner that will be accepted by the market;
 
    We may have difficulty incorporating the acquired technologies or products into our existing product lines;
 
    We may have product liability, customer liability or intellectual property liability associated with the sale of the acquired company’s products;
 
    Our ongoing business may be disrupted by transition or integration issues and our management’s attention may be diverted from other business initiatives;
 
    We may be unable to obtain timely approvals from governmental authorities under applicable competition and antitrust laws;
 
    We may have difficulty maintaining uniform standards, controls, procedures and policies;
 
    Our relationships with current and new employees, customers and distributors could be impaired;
 
    An acquisition may result in increased litigation risk, including litigation from terminated employees or third parties; and
 
    Our due diligence process may fail to identify significant issues with the acquired company’s product quality, financial disclosures, accounting practices, internal control deficiencies, including material weaknesses, product architecture, legal contingencies and other matters.
 
These factors could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, financial condition and cash flow, particularly in the case of a large acquisition or number of acquisitions. To the extent we issue shares of stock or other rights to purchase stock, including options, to pay for acquisitions or to retain employees, existing stockholders’ interests may be diluted and net income per share may decrease.
 
We are subject to intense competition in product and service offerings and pricing, and we expect to face increased competition in the future, which could either diminish demand for or inhibit growth of our products and, therefore, reduce our sales, revenue and market presence.
The markets for our products are intensely competitive, and we expect product and service offerings and pricing competition to increase. Some of our competitors have longer operating histories, greater name recognition, a larger installed base of customers in any particular market niche, larger technical staffs, established relationships with hardware vendors, or greater financial, technical and marketing resources. Furthermore, our growth strategy is predicated upon our ability to develop and acquire products and services that address customer needs and are accepted by the market better than those of our competitors.
 
We also face competition from numerous smaller companies that specialize in specific aspects of the highly fragmented software industry, and from shareware authors that may develop competing products. In addition, new companies enter the market on a frequent and regular basis, offering products that compete with those offered by us. Moreover, certain customers historically have developed their own products that compete with those offered by us. The competition may affect our ability to attract and retain the technical skills needed to provide services to our customers, forcing us to become more reliant on delivery of services through third parties. This, in turn, could increase operating costs and decrease our revenue, profitability

and cash flow. Additionally, competition from any of these sources could result in price reductions or displacement of our products, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Our competitors include large vendors of hardware and operating system software and service providers. The widespread inclusion of products that perform the same or similar functions as our products bundled within computer hardware or other companies’ software products, or services similar to those provided by us, could reduce the perceived need for our products and services, or render our products obsolete and unmarketable. Furthermore, even if these incorporated products are inferior or more limited than our products, customers may elect to accept the incorporated products rather than purchase our products. In addition, the software industry is currently undergoing consolidation as software companies seek to offer more extensive suites and broader arrays of software products and services, as well as integrated software and hardware solutions. This consolidation may adversely affect our competitive position, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow. Refer to Item 1, “Business — (c) Narrative Description of the Business — Competition,” for additional information.
 
Our business may suffer if we are not able to retain and attract adequate qualified personnel, including key managerial, technical, marketing and sales personnel.
We operate in a business where there is intense competition for experienced personnel in all of our global markets. We depend on our ability to identify, recruit, hire, train, develop and retain qualified and effective personnel and to attract and retain talent needed to execute our growth strategy. Our ability to do so depends on numerous factors, including factors that we cannot control, such as competition and conditions in the local employment markets in which we operate. Our future success depends in large part on the continued contribution of our senior management and other key employees. A loss of a significant number of skilled managerial or other personnel could have a negative effect on the quality of our products. A loss of a significant number of experienced and effective sales personnel could result in fewer sales of our products. Our failure to retain qualified employees in these categories could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Failure to adapt to technological changes and introduce new software products and services in a timely manner could materially adversely affect our business.
If we fail to keep pace with, or in certain cases lead, technological change in our industry, that failure could have a material adverse effect on our business. We operate in a highly competitive industry characterized by rapid technological change, evolving industry standards, and changes in customer requirements and delivery methods. During the past several years, many new technological advancements and competing products entered the marketplace. The distributed systems and application management markets in which we operate are far more crowded and competitive than our traditional mainframe systems management markets.
 
Our ability to compete effectively and our growth prospects for all of our products, including those associated with our growth strategy, depend upon many factors, including the success of our existing distributed systems products, the timely introduction and success of future software products and related delivery methods, and the ability of our products to perform well with existing and future leading databases and other platforms supported by our products that address customer needs and are accepted by the market. We have experienced long development cycles and product delays in the past, particularly with some of our distributed systems products, and may experience delays in the future. In addition, we have incurred, and expect to continue to incur, significant research and development costs, as we introduce new products. If there are delays in new product introductions or there is less-than-anticipated market acceptance of these new products, we will have invested substantial resources without realizing adequate revenues in return, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
If our products do not remain compatible with ever-changing operating environments we could lose customers and the demand for our products and services could decrease, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
The largest suppliers of systems and computing software are, in most cases, the manufacturers of the computer hardware systems used by most of our customers. Historically, these companies have from time to time modified or introduced new operating systems, systems software and computer hardware. In the future, such new products from these companies could incorporate features that perform functions currently performed by our products, or could require substantial modification of

12


Table of Contents

our products to maintain compatibility with these companies’ hardware or software. Although we have to date been able to adapt our products and our business to changes introduced by hardware manufacturers and system software developers, there can be no assurance that we will be able to do so in the future. Failure to adapt our products in a timely manner to such changes or customer decisions to forgo the use of our products in favor of those with comparable functionality contained either in their hardware or operating system could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Certain software that we use in our products is licensed from third parties and thus may not be available to us in the future, which has the potential to delay product development and production and, therefore, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Some of our solutions contain software licensed from third parties. Some of these licenses may not be available to us in the future on terms that are acceptable to us or allow our products to remain competitive. The loss of these licenses or the inability to maintain any of them on commercially acceptable terms could delay development of future products or the enhancement of existing products. We may also choose to pay a premium price for such a license in certain circumstances where continuity of the licensed product would outweigh the premium cost of the license. The unavailability of these licenses or the necessity of agreeing to commercially unreasonable terms for such licenses could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Certain software we use is from open source code sources, which, under certain circumstances, may lead to unintended consequences and, therefore, could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
Some of our products contain software from open source code sources. The use of such open source code may subject us to certain conditions, including the obligation to offer our products that use open source code for no cost. We monitor our use of such open source code to avoid subjecting our products to conditions we do not intend. However, the use of such open source code may ultimately subject some of our products to unintended conditions, which could require us to take remedial action that may divert resources away from our development efforts and therefore could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Discovery of errors in our software could materially adversely affect our revenue and earnings and subject us to costly and time consuming product liability claims.
The software products we offer are inherently complex. Despite testing and quality control, we cannot be certain that errors will not be found in current versions, new versions or enhancements of our products after commencement of commercial shipments. If new or existing customers have difficulty deploying our products or require significant amounts of customer support, our operating margins could be adversely affected. Moreover, we could face possible claims and higher development costs if our software contains errors that we have not detected or if our software otherwise fails to meet our customers’ expectations. Significant technical challenges also arise with our products because our customers license and deploy our products across a variety of computer platforms and integrate them with a number of third-party software applications and databases. These combinations increase our risk further because, in the event of a system-wide failure, it may be difficult to determine which product is at fault. As a result, we may be harmed by the failure of another supplier’s products. As a result of the foregoing, we could experience:
 
    Loss of or delay in revenue and loss of market share;
 
    Loss of customers, including the inability to obtain repeat business with existing key customers;
 
    Damage to our reputation;
 
    Failure to achieve market acceptance;
 
    Diversion of development resources;
 
    Increased service and warranty costs;
 
    Legal actions by customers against us that could, whether or not successful, be costly, distracting and time-consuming;
 
    Increased insurance costs; and
 
    Failure to successfully complete service engagements for product installations and implementations.

Consequently, the discovery of errors in our products after delivery could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
We have a significant amount of debt. Changes in market conditions or our ratings could increase our interest costs and adversely affect the cost of refinancing our debt and our ability to refinance our debt, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
As of March 31, 2010, we had $1,545 million of debt outstanding, consisting mostly of unsecured fixed-rate senior note obligations and credit facility borrowings. Refer to Note 8, “Debt,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for the payment schedule of our long-term debt obligations. Our senior unsecured notes are rated by Moody’s Investors Service, Fitch Ratings, and Standard and Poor’s. These agencies or any other credit rating agency could downgrade or take other negative action with respect to our credit ratings in the future. If our credit ratings were downgraded or other negative action is taken, we would be required to, among other things, pay additional interest on outstanding borrowings under our principal revolving credit agreement. Any downgrades could affect our ability to obtain additional financing in the future and may affect the terms of any such financing.
 
We expect that existing cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, cash provided from operations and our bank credit facilities will be sufficient to meet ongoing cash requirements. However, our failure to generate sufficient cash as our debt becomes due or to renew credit lines prior to their expiration could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Failure to protect our intellectual property rights and source code would weaken our competitive position.
Our future success is highly dependent upon our proprietary technology, including our software and our source code for that software. Failure to protect such technology could lead to the loss of valuable assets and our competitive advantage. We protect our proprietary information through the use of patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secret laws, confidentiality procedures and contractual provisions. Notwithstanding our efforts to protect our proprietary rights, policing unauthorized use or copying of our proprietary information is difficult. Unauthorized use or copying occurs from time to time and litigation to enforce intellectual property rights could result in significant costs and diversion of resources. Moreover, the laws of some foreign jurisdictions do not afford the same degree of protection to our proprietary rights as do the laws of the United States. For example, for some of our products, we rely on “shrink-wrap” or “click-on” licenses, which may be unenforceable in whole or in part in some jurisdictions in which we operate. In addition, patents we have obtained may be circumvented, challenged, invalidated or designed around by other companies. If we do not adequately protect our intellectual property for these or other reasons, our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow could be materially adversely affected. Refer to “Item 1, Business — (c) Narrative Description of the Business — Patents and Trademarks,” for additional information.
 
The number, terms and duration of our license agreements as well as the timing of orders from our customers and channel partners, may cause fluctuations in some of our key financial metrics, which may affect our quarterly financial results.
Historically, a substantial portion of our license agreements are executed in the last month of a quarter and the number of contracts executed during a given quarter can vary substantially. In addition, we experience a historically long sales cycle, which is driven in part by the varying terms and conditions of our software contracts. These factors can make it difficult for us to predict bookings and cash flow on a quarterly basis. Any failure or delay in executing new or renewed license agreements in a given quarter could cause declines in some of our key financial metrics ( e.g. , bookings or cash flow), and, accordingly, increases the risk of unanticipated variations in our quarterly results and financial condition.
 
We may become dependent upon large transactions, and the failure to close such transactions on a satisfactory basis could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
In the past, we have been dependent upon large-dollar enterprise transactions with individual customers. There can be no assurances that we will not be reliant on large-dollar enterprise transactions in the future, and the failure to close those transactions on terms that are commercially attractive to us could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.

Table of Contents

Our sales to government clients subject us to risks, including early termination, audits, investigations, sanctions and penalties.
Approximately 9% of our total revenue backlog as of March 31, 2010 is associated with multi-year contracts signed with the U.S. federal government and other U.S. state and local governmental agencies. These contracts are generally subject to annual fiscal funding approval, may be terminated at the convenience of the government, or both. Termination of a contract or funding for a contract could adversely affect our sales, revenue and reputation. Additionally, government contracts are generally subject to audits and investigations, which could result in various civil and criminal penalties and administrative sanctions, including termination of contracts, refund of a portion of fees received, forfeiture of profits, suspension of payments, fines and suspensions or debarment from doing business with the government, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Our customers’ data centers and IT environments may be subject to hacking or other breaches, harming the market perception of the effectiveness of our products.
If an actual or perceived breach of our customers’ network security occurs, allowing access to our customers’ data centers or other parts of their IT environments, regardless of whether the breach is attributable to our products, the market perception of the effectiveness of our products could be harmed. Because the techniques used by computer hackers to access or sabotage networks change frequently and may not be recognized until launched against a target, we may be unable to anticipate these techniques.
 
Alleviating any of these problems could require significant expenditures of our capital and diversion of our resources from development efforts. Additionally, these efforts could cause interruptions, delays or cessation of our product licensing, or modification of our software, which could cause us to lose existing or potential customers, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Our software products, data centers and IT environments may be subject to hacking or other breaches, harming the market perception of the effectiveness of our products.
We expect to be an ongoing target of attacks specifically designed to impede the performance of our products. Similarly, experienced computer programmers, or hackers, may attempt to penetrate our network security or the security of our data centers and IT environments and misappropriate proprietary information or cause interruptions of our services. Although we believe we have sufficient controls in place to prevent significant external disruptions, if these intentionally disruptive efforts are successful, our activities could be adversely affected, our reputation and future sales could be harmed and our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow could be materially adversely affected.
 
We may lose access to third-party code and specifications for the development of code, which could materially adversely affect our ability to develop software compatible with third-party software products in the future.
In the past, we have either directly licensed from third parties, or used within the scope of our customer’s license, code and information for third-party software and hardware that enables us to develop compatible products and interfaces. Such code and information includes: “source code,” which is human-readable and makes the software understandable to programmers; “object code,” which is machine-readable and can be directly executed by a computer; beta and evaluation software; microcode and firmware that implement machine instructions on hardware; and technical documentation. Since the availability of this code and information facilitated the development of systems and applications software that interfaces with the third-party software and hardware, independent software vendors, such as us, were able to develop and market compatible software. Some software providers and hardware manufacturers, including some of the largest vendors, have a policy of restricting the use or availability of their code or technical documentation for some of their operating systems, applications, or hardware. To date, this policy has not had a material effect on us. Some companies, however, may adopt more restrictive policies in the future or impose unfavorable terms and conditions for such access. These restrictions may, in the future, result in higher research and development costs for us in connection with the enhancement and modification of our existing products and the development of new products. There can be no assurance that such restrictions will not have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.

Third parties could claim that our products infringe their intellectual property rights or that we owe royalty payments, which could result in significant litigation expense or settlement with unfavorable terms, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
From time to time, third parties have claimed and may claim that our products infringe various forms of their intellectual property or that we owe royalty payments to them. Investigation of these claims can be expensive and could affect development, marketing or shipment of our products. As the number of software patents issued increases, it is likely that additional claims will be asserted. Defending against such claims is time-consuming and could result in significant litigation expense or settlement on unfavorable terms, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Fluctuations in foreign currencies could result in translation losses.
Our consolidated financial results are reported in U.S. dollars. Most of the revenue and expenses of our foreign subsidiaries are denominated in local currencies. Given that cash is typically received over an extended period of time for many of our license agreements and given that a substantial portion of our revenue is generated outside of the U.S., foreign currency fluctuations could result in substantial changes in reported revenues and operating results due to the foreign currency impact upon translation of these transactions into U.S. dollars.
 
In the normal course of business, we employ various strategies to manage these risks, including the use of derivative instruments. To the extent that these strategies do not manage all of the risks inherent in our foreign exchange exposures cause our earnings and expenses to fluctuate more than they would have had these strategies not been employed, fluctuations of the exchange rates of foreign currencies against the U.S. dollar could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
Failure by us to execute our restructuring plans successfully could result in total costs that are greater than expected or revenues that are less than anticipated.
We have announced restructuring plans, which include workforce reductions as well as global facility consolidations and other cost reduction initiatives. We may have further workforce reductions or restructuring actions in the future. Risks associated with these actions and other workforce management issues include delays in implementation of anticipated workforce reductions, changes in restructuring plans that increase or decrease the number of employees affected, adverse effects on employee morale and the failure to meet operational targets due to the loss of employees, any of which may impair our ability to achieve anticipated cost reductions or may otherwise harm our business, which could materially adversely affect our financial condition, operating results and cash flow.
 
We have outsourced various functions to third parties and these arrangements may not be successful, thereby resulting in increased costs, or may adversely affect service levels and our public reporting.
We have outsourced various functions to third parties including certain development and other administrative functions and may outsource additional functions to third-party providers in the future. We rely on those third parties to provide services on a timely and effective basis. Although we periodically monitor the performance of these third parties and maintain contingency plans in case the third parties are unable to perform as agreed, we do not ultimately control the performance of our outsourcing partners. The failure of third-party outsourcing partners to perform as expected or as required by contract could result in significant disruptions and costs to our operations, which could materially adversely affect our business, financial condition, operating results and cash flow and our ability to file our financial statements with the Securities and Exchange Commission timely or accurately.
 
Potential tax liabilities may materially adversely affect our results.
We are subject to income taxes in the United States and in numerous foreign jurisdictions. Significant judgment is required in determining our worldwide provision for income taxes. In the ordinary course of our business, we engage in many transactions and calculations where the ultimate tax determination is uncertain. We are regularly under audit by tax authorities. Although we believe our tax estimates are reasonable, the final determination of tax audits and any related litigation could be materially different from that which is reflected in our income tax provisions and accruals. Additional tax assessments resulting from audit, litigation, or changes in tax laws may result in increased tax provisions or payments which could materially adversely affect our financial condition, operating results and cash flow in the period or periods in which that determination is made.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Introduction
This “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” (MD&A) is intended to provide an understanding of our financial condition, change in financial condition, cash flow, liquidity and results of operations. This MD&A should be read in conjunction with our Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements appearing elsewhere in this Report and the Risk Factors included in Part I, Item 1A of this Report as well as other cautionary statements and risks described elsewhere in this Report. References in this MD&A to fiscal 2010, fiscal 2009, fiscal 2008 and fiscal 2007 are to our fiscal years ended on March 31, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007, respectively.
 
Business Overview
We are the leading independent enterprise IT management software and service company with deep expertise across IT environments — from mainframe and physical to virtual and cloud. We develop and deliver software and services that help organizations manage and secure their IT infrastructures and deliver more flexible IT services. This allows companies to more effectively and efficiently respond to business needs. We address virtually all of the components of the computing environment, including people, information, processes, systems, networks, applications and databases, regardless of the hardware or software customers are using. We have a broad portfolio of software products that address our customers’ needs with a specific focus on service management and assurance; mainframe; project and portfolio management; security (identity and access management); virtualization and automation; and cloud computing. We deliver our products on-premise or, for certain products, via Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).
 
We license our products worldwide. We service companies across most major industries worldwide, including banks, insurance companies, other financial services providers, governmental agencies, manufacturers, technology companies, retailers, educational institutions and health care institutions. These customers typically maintain IT infrastructures that are both complex and central to their objectives for operational excellence.
 
We offer our software products and solutions directly to our customers through our direct sales force and indirectly through global systems integrators, managed service providers, technology partners, value-added resellers, exclusive representatives and distributors and volume partners.
 
CA’s Business Model
We generate revenue from the following sources: license fees — licensing our products on a right-to-use basis; maintenance fees — providing customer technical support and product enhancements; and service fees — providing professional services such as product implementation, consulting and education. The timing and amount of fees recognized as revenue during a reporting period are determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (GAAP). Revenue is reported net of applicable sales taxes.
 
Under our business model, we offer customers a wide range of licensing options, including the flexibility to license software under month-to-month licenses or to fix their costs by committing to longer-term agreements. Licenses sold for most of our software products permit customers to change their software product mix as their business and technology needs change and include the right to receive software products in the future within defined product lines for no additional fee, commonly referred to as unspecified future software products, as well as maintenance included during the term of each license. In some instances, we sell certain products without the right to receive unspecified future software products.
 
Performance Indicators
Management uses several quantitative and qualitative performance indicators to assess our financial results and condition. Each provides a measurement of the performance of our business and how well we are executing our plan.

Our predominantly subscription-based business model is less common among our competitors in the software industry and it may be difficult to compare the results for many of our performance indicators with those of our competitors. The following is a summary of the principal performance indicators that management uses to review performance:

Total Revenue  — Total revenue is the amount of revenue recognized during the reporting period from subscription and maintenance agreements, professional services arrangements and software fees and other revenue recognized during the reporting period.
 
Subscription and Maintenance Revenue  — Subscription and maintenance revenue is the amount of revenue recognized ratably during the reporting period from: (i) subscription license agreements that were in effect during the period, generally including maintenance that is bundled with and not separately identifiable from software usage fees or product sales, (ii) maintenance agreements associated with providing customer technical support and access to software fixes and upgrades that are separately identifiable from software usage fees or product sales, and (iii) license agreements bundled with additional products, maintenance or professional services for which Vendor Specific Objective Evidence (VSOE) has not been established. These amounts include the sale of products directly by us, as well as by distributors and volume partners, value-added resellers and exclusive representatives to end-users, where the contracts incorporate the right for end-users to receive unspecified future software products, and other contracts entered into in close proximity or contemplation of such agreements.
 
Total Bookings  — Total bookings includes the incremental value of all subscription, maintenance and professional service contracts and software fees and other contracts entered into during the reporting period.
 
Subscription and Maintenance Bookings  — Subscription and maintenance bookings is the aggregate incremental amount we expect to collect from our customers over the terms of the underlying subscription and maintenance agreements entered into during a reporting period. These amounts include the sale of products directly by us and may include additional products, services or other fees for which we have not established VSOE. Subscription and maintenance bookings also includes indirect sales by distributors and volume partners, value added resellers and exclusive representatives to end-users, where the contracts incorporate the right for end-users to receive unspecified future software products, and other contracts without these rights entered into in close proximity or contemplation of such agreements. These amounts are expected to be recognized ratably as subscription and maintenance revenue over the applicable term of the agreements. Subscription and maintenance bookings excludes the value associated with certain perpetual licenses, license-only indirect sales, and professional services arrangements.

Table of Contents

The license and maintenance agreements that contribute to subscription and maintenance bookings represent binding payment commitments by customers over periods that range generally from three to five years on a weighted average basis, although individual customer commitments can be for longer or shorter periods. These current period bookings are often renewals of prior contracts that also had various durations, usually from three to five years. The amount of new subscription and maintenance bookings recorded in a period is affected by the volume, duration and value of contracts renewed during that period. Our subscription and maintenance bookings typically increase in each consecutive quarter during a fiscal year, with the first quarter having the least amount of bookings and the fourth quarter having the highest bookings. However, subscription and maintenance bookings may not always follow the pattern of increasing in consecutive quarters during a fiscal year, and the quarter-to-quarter differences in subscription and maintenance bookings may vary. Given the varying durations of the contracts being renewed, year-over-year comparisons on bookings are not always indicative of the overall bookings trend. We believe our revenue backlog is our best indicator of future revenue due to the high percentage of our revenue that is recognized from license agreements that are already committed and being recognized ratably.
 
Additionally, period-to-period changes in subscription and maintenance bookings do not necessarily correlate to changes in cash receipts. The contribution to current period revenue from subscription and maintenance bookings from any single license or maintenance agreement is relatively small, since revenue is recognized ratably over the applicable term for these agreements.
 
Weighted Average Subscription and Maintenance License Agreement Duration in Years  — The weighted average subscription and maintenance license agreement duration in years reflects the duration of all subscription and maintenance agreements executed during a period, weighted by the total contract value of each individual agreement.
 
Annualized Subscription and Maintenance Bookings — Annualized subscription and maintenance bookings is an indicator that normalizes the bookings recorded in the current period to account for contract length. It is calculated by dividing the total value of all new subscription and maintenance license agreements entered into during a period by the weighted average subscription and license agreement duration in years for all such subscription and maintenance license agreements recorded during the same period.
 
Total Revenue Backlog — Total revenue backlog represents the aggregate amount we expect to recognize as revenue in the future as either subscription and maintenance revenue, professional services revenue or software fees and other revenue associated with contractually committed amounts billed or to be billed as of the balance sheet date. Total revenue backlog is composed of amounts recognized as liabilities in our Consolidated Balance Sheets as deferred revenue (billed or collected) as well as unearned amounts yet to be billed under subscription and maintenance and software fees and other agreements. Amounts are classified as current or non-current depending on when they are expected to be earned and therefore recognized as revenue. The portion of the total revenue backlog that relates to subscription and maintenance agreements is recognized as revenue evenly on a monthly basis over the duration of the underlying agreements and is reported as subscription and maintenance revenue in our Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
“Deferred revenue (billed or collected)” is composed of: (i) amounts received from customers in advance of revenue recognition, (ii) amounts billed but not collected for which revenue has not yet been earned, and (iii) amounts received in advance of revenue recognition from financial institutions where we have transferred our interest in committed installments.

Revenue
The $82 million increase in total revenue for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to a higher annualized value of customer contracts contributing to revenue during fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009, partially offset by an unfavorable foreign exchange effect of $32 million and a decrease in professional services revenue.
 
Total revenue for fiscal 2009 decreased $6 million compared with fiscal 2008. Fiscal 2009 revenue was unfavorably affected by foreign exchange of $35 million compared with fiscal 2008, partially offset by a higher value of customer subscription and maintenance contracts.
 
Subscription and Maintenance Revenue
The increase in subscription and maintenance revenue for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to a higher annualized value of customer contracts contributing to revenue during fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009, partially offset by a $32 million negative effect from foreign exchange.
 
Subscription and maintenance revenue increased slightly for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 primarily due to an increase in the value of existing customer contracts, partially offset by a $32 million negative effect from foreign exchange.
 
Subscription and Maintenance Bookings
For fiscal 2010 and 2009, our subscription and maintenance bookings were $4,435 million and $4,783 million, respectively. The decrease in subscription and maintenance bookings for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to several large contract extensions with terms of approximately five years entered into during the second quarter of fiscal 2009, two of which had a combined contract value of approximately $550 million. During fiscal 2010, we renewed a total of 68 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of

Table of Contents

$2,146 million. During fiscal 2009, we renewed a total of 68 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $2,471 million. The decrease in the dollar value of the agreements in excess of $10 million was primarily attributable to the large contract renewals that were signed in the second quarter of fiscal 2009. For fiscal 2010, annualized subscription and maintenance bookings decreased $72 million from the prior year period to $1,253 million. The weighted average subscription and maintenance license agreement duration in years decreased slightly from fiscal 2009 to 2010, from 3.61 to 3.54. Although each contract is subject to terms negotiated by the respective parties, management does not currently expect the weighted average duration of contracts to change materially from current levels for end-user contracts.
 
For fiscal 2009 and 2008, our subscription and maintenance bookings were $4,783 million and $4,110 million, respectively. Subscription and maintenance bookings for fiscal 2009 were favorably affected by an increase in U.S. renewal bookings compared with the prior year period primarily due to the size and duration of the contracts that were renewed in fiscal 2009, partially offset by an unfavorable variance due to foreign exchange. During fiscal 2009, we renewed a total of 68 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $2,471 million. During fiscal 2008, we renewed a total of 61 license agreements with incremental contract values in excess of $10 million each, for an aggregate contract value of $1,396 million. The increase in the dollar value of the agreements in excess of $10 million was primarily attributable to the execution of several large contract extensions with terms of approximately five years in the second quarter of fiscal 2009, two of which had a combined contract value of approximately $550 million. For fiscal 2009, annualized subscription and maintenance bookings decreased $54 million from the prior year period to $1,325 million. The weighted average subscription and maintenance license agreement duration in years increased to 3.61 for fiscal 2009 compared with 2.98 for fiscal 2008 due to an increase in the number and dollar values of contracts executed with contract terms longer than historical averages.
 
Professional Services
Professional services revenue primarily includes product implementation, customer training and customer education. The revenue decrease for fiscal 2010 compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily a result of our customers’ reduced discretionary spending due to the difficult economic environment.
 
The revenue decrease for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to our concerted efforts to reduce the number of low margin service contracts in all regions, revenue decreases from customer delays in signing professional service contracts due to the difficult economic environment and revenue decreases in the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) region, which was due to our decision to stop providing professional services in certain markets in conjunction with our change in that region from a direct to an indirect sales model.
 
Software Fees and Other
Software fees and other revenue primarily consists of revenue that is recognized on an up-front basis. This includes revenue generated through transactions with distributors and volume partners, value-added resellers and exclusive representatives (sometimes referred to as our “indirect” or “channel” revenue) and certain revenue associated with products sold on an up-front basis. In fiscal 2009 we recorded $5 million under the license agreement we entered into in connection with a litigation settlement entered into with Rocket Software, Inc. (Rocket) that expires in fiscal 2014. In fiscal 2010 we recorded $6 million from a renegotiated payment schedule under this agreement.
 
Software fees and other revenue increased for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 primarily due to a $39 million increase in revenue associated with acquired new products and existing application management products sold on an up-front basis. Approximately $18 million of these revenues were from products of NetQoS, which was acquired during the third quarter of fiscal 2010.
 
For fiscal 2009, software fees and other revenue increased from fiscal 2008 primarily due to an $11 million increase in our indirect business revenue and $5 million from the aforementioned settlement agreement we entered into with Rocket partially offset by lower financing fees and other revenue.

Revenue in the U.S. increased by 5% for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 primarily due to a higher annual value of customer subscription and maintenance contracts. For fiscal 2010, international revenue decreased by approximately 2% as compared with the prior period primarily due to the unfavorable effect from foreign exchange of $32 million.
 
U.S. revenue increased in fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 primarily due to growth from higher subscription revenue resulting from subscription agreements executed in prior periods. International revenue decreased in fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 partially due to the unfavorable effect from foreign exchange of $35 million as well as a $37 million revenue decrease in the APJ region, which was mostly due to our decision to stop providing professional services in certain markets in conjunction with our change in that region from a direct to indirect sales model.
 
Price changes do not have a material effect on revenue in a given period as a result of our ratable subscription model.
 
Expenses
The overall decrease in operating expenses for fiscal 2010 compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to lower restructuring costs partially offset by increased selling and marketing, general and administrative and other costs.
 
The overall decrease in operating expenses for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to improved cost management and increased operating efficiencies, including personnel and other savings realized from the fiscal 2007 cost reduction and restructuring plan (fiscal 2007 restructuring plan). In addition, there was a favorable effect from foreign exchange of $35 million for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008.
 
Costs of Licensing and Maintenance
Costs of licensing and maintenance include technical support, royalties, and other manufacturing and distribution costs. Costs of licensing and maintenance for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 decreased $8 million due to lower royalty fees offset by increases in product support expenses and other costs.
 
The increase in costs of licensing and maintenance for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to the strategic partnership agreement that we signed with an outside third party relating to our Internet Security business during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008, under which fees are paid based on sales volumes. Prior to this strategic partnership, the development costs relating to this business were included in product development and enhancements. These increases in costs of licensing and maintenance were partially offset by decreases in product support expenses.
 
Cost of Professional Services
Cost of professional services consists primarily of our personnel-related costs associated with providing professional services and training to customers. For fiscal 2010, cost of professional services decreased as compared with fiscal 2009 primarily due to a $36 million decrease in consulting and personnel costs, mostly related to lower sales volumes, and a $4 million favorable foreign exchange variance. Professional services gross margin for fiscal 2010 was 11% as compared with 14% for fiscal 2009 mostly due to lower utilization rates resulting from the decrease in sales.
 
The decrease in cost of professional services for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to a reduced use of external consultants, reduced personnel costs and our effort to reduce the number of low margin service contracts which resulted in cost reductions due to lower sales volume and margin improvements. As a result of the decreased cost of professional services, the margins on professional services revenue improved to 14% for fiscal 2009 compared with 4% for fiscal 2008.

Amortization of Capitalized Software Costs
Amortization of capitalized software costs consists of the amortization of both purchased software and internally generated capitalized software development costs. Internally generated capitalized software development costs relate to new products and significant enhancements to existing software products that have reached the technological feasibility stage.
 
The increases in amortization of capitalized software costs for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 and in fiscal 2009 as compared with fiscal 2008 were principally due to the capitalizable value of projects that have reached technological feasibility in recent periods.
 
Selling and Marketing
Selling and marketing expenses include costs relating to our sales force, channel partners, corporate and business marketing and customer training programs. The increase in selling and marketing expenses for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to increased personnel costs of $20 million partially from acquired companies and higher commission costs of $30 million resulting from new product sales partially offset by reduced promotion expenses of $21 million, principally attributable to the timing of CA World in fiscal 2009. CA World is our largest periodic promotional and marketing event that takes place approximately every 18 months, which did not occur during fiscal 2010.
 
Including a $15 million decrease due to foreign exchange, the decline in selling and marketing expenses for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to decreases in personnel costs of $48 million, promotion expenses of $26 million, office and IT costs of $14 million and external consulting costs of $11 million in connection with our cost reduction efforts.
 
General and Administrative
General and administrative expenses include the costs of corporate and support functions, including our executive leadership and administration groups, finance, legal, human resources and corporate communications and other costs, such as provisions for doubtful accounts. For fiscal 2010, general and administrative costs increased $15 million as compared with fiscal 2009 primarily due to $17 million in costs related to the departure of our Chief Executive Officer and the transition to his successor. We also incurred a $12 million increase in costs attributable to acquisitions and other strategic initiatives partially offset by a $7 million reduction in bad debt expenses and other cost reductions.
 
Including a $4 million decrease due to foreign exchange, general and administrative expenses decreased in fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 primarily due to lower office and IT costs of $28 million, lower personnel-related expenses of $16 million, lower external consulting costs of $18 million and a reduction in bad debt expenses of $9 million. These decreases were partially offset by a $12 million reduction in general and administrative expenses we recorded in fiscal 2008 due to obligations from prior period acquisitions that were settled for amounts less than originally estimated (refer to Note 2, “Acquisitions,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information).
 
Product Development and Enhancements
Product development and enhancements expenses for fiscal 2010 decreased from fiscal 2009 primarily due to an increase in resources dedicated to internally developed software for strategic investments in our security, mainframe and infrastructure management products, which are capitalized and reflected in the Capitalized development costs and other intangible assets, net line on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Mostly offsetting this decrease in expenses were increased personnel costs, an increase in our investment in product development and enhancements for emerging technologies, and a broadening of our enterprise product offerings to build on our portfolio of software and services to meet next-generation market opportunities.
 
Expenses declined during fiscal 2009 as compared with fiscal 2008 primarily due to the strategic partnership agreement relating to the development of products associated with our Internet Security business and increased capitalization of internally developed software, partially offset by higher personnel costs.
 
For fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, product development and enhancements expenses represented approximately 11%, 11% and 12% of total revenue, respectively.
 
Depreciation and Amortization of Other Intangible Assets
The increase in depreciation and amortization of other intangible assets for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to the increased value of fixed assets placed into service during fiscal 2010.

28


Table of Contents

The decrease in depreciation and amortization of other intangible assets for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to decreased amortization costs of intangible assets relating to prior period acquisitions.

In fiscal 2010, we recorded net foreign exchange losses of $10 million. The foreign exchange amounts recorded in fiscal 2010 included net losses of $20 million associated with derivative contracts, which we use to mitigate our operating risks and exposure to foreign currency exchange rates. These losses were offset by foreign currency transaction gains due to the weakening of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of other countries in which we conduct our operations.
 
In fiscal 2009, we recorded net foreign exchange gains of $11 million. The foreign exchange amounts recorded in fiscal 2009 included net gains of $77 million associated with derivative foreign exchange contracts, which we use to mitigate our operating risks and exposure to foreign currency exchange rates. These gains were mostly offset by foreign exchange losses from other operating activities due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of other countries in which we conduct our operations. During the third quarter of fiscal 2009, we recognized a gain of $5 million associated with our repurchase of $148 million principal amount of our 4.750% Senior Notes.
 
Restructuring and Other
The Fiscal 2010 Restructuring Plan (Fiscal 2010 Plan) was approved in March 2010. The Fiscal 2007 Restructuring Plan (Fiscal 2007 Plan) was approved in August 2006. For fiscal 2010 and 2009, we incurred expenses of $46 million and $96 million, respectively, primarily related to severance and lease abandonment and termination costs under the Fiscal 2010 and Fiscal 2007 Plans, of which $116 million remained unpaid as of March 31, 2010. The severance portion of the remaining liability balance is included in the “Accrued salaries, wages and commissions” line item on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The facilities abandonment portion of the remaining liability balance is included in the “Accrued expenses and other current liabilities” and “Other noncurrent liabilities” line items on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. Final payment of these amounts is dependent upon settlement with the works councils in certain international locations and our ability to negotiate lease terminations. (Refer to Note 3, “Restructuring and Other,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information).
 
During fiscal 2010 and fiscal 2009, we recorded impairment charges of $3 million and $5 million, respectively, for software that was capitalized for internal use but was determined to be impaired. During fiscal 2010, we incurred $3 million in legal fees in connection with matters under review by the Special Litigation Committee (refer to Note 9, “Commitments and Contingencies,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information).
 
In the first quarter of fiscal 2008, we incurred a $4 million expense related to a loss on the sale of an investment in marketable securities associated with the closure of an international location. During fiscal 2008, we incurred $12 million in legal fees in connection with matters under review by the Special Litigation Committee.
 
Interest Expense, net
The increase in interest expense, net for fiscal 2010 as compared with fiscal 2009 was primarily due to a decline in short-term interest rates which reduced interest income earned on cash balances.
 
The decrease in interest expense, net for fiscal 2009 compared with fiscal 2008 was primarily due to decreased interest expenses as a result of the repayment of our $350 million 6.500% Senior Notes due April 2008 (the fiscal 1999 Senior Notes) and partial repurchase of our 4.750% Senior Notes due December 2009.

Income Taxes
Our effective tax rate was approximately 34%, 37% and 38%, for fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
The reduction in the effective tax rate for fiscal 2010, as compared with fiscal 2009, resulted primarily from the net charge incurred in fiscal 2009 that did not reoccur in fiscal 2010, which when taken together with fiscal 2010 reconciliations of tax returns to tax provisions, resolutions of uncertain tax positions relating to non-U.S. jurisdictions and refinements of estimates ascribed to tax positions taken in prior periods relating to our international tax profile, resulted in a net benefit of $10 million for fiscal 2010 and, in our view, continues our efforts to improve our long term tax profile.
 
The income tax provision recorded for fiscal 2009 includes a net charge of $22 million, which is primarily attributable to adjustments to uncertain tax positions (including certain refinements of amounts ascribed to tax positions taken in prior periods), partially offset by the reinstatement of the U.S. Research and Development Tax Credit and the settlement of a U.S. federal income tax audit for the fiscal years 2001 through 2004. As a result of this settlement, during the first quarter of fiscal year 2009, we recognized a tax benefit of $11 million and a reduction of goodwill by $10 million.
 
The income tax provision recorded for fiscal 2008 included charges of $26 million associated with certain corporate income tax rate reductions enacted in various non-U.S. tax jurisdictions (with corresponding impacts on our net deferred tax assets). As enacted income tax rates decline, the future value of the deferred tax assets declines, giving rise to a charge through the corporate income tax provision in the current period. Accordingly, deferred tax assets were adjusted to reflect the enacted rates in effect when the temporary items are expected to reverse.
 
No provision has been made for U.S. federal income taxes on $1,067 million and $958 million as of March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively, of unremitted earnings of our foreign subsidiaries since we plan to permanently reinvest all such earnings outside the U.S. It is not practicable to determine the amount of tax associated with such unremitted earnings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our cash balances, including cash equivalents, are held by numerous subsidiaries throughout the world, with 46% residing outside the United States at March 31, 2010. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $2,583 million as of March 31, 2010, representing a decrease of $129 million from the March 31, 2009 balance of $2,712 million.
 
We expect that existing cash and cash equivalents, the availability of borrowings under existing and renewable credit lines, and cash expected to be provided from operations will be sufficient to meet ongoing cash requirements.
 
We expect to use existing cash balances and future cash generated from operations to fund capital spending, financing activities such as the repayment of our debt balances as they mature, the payment of dividends, and the potential repurchase of shares of common stock in accordance with any plans approved by our Board of Directors, as well as our continued investment in our enterprise resource planning implementation and future acquisitions.
 
Sources and Uses of Cash
Cash generated by operating activities, which represents our primary source of liquidity, increased $148 million in fiscal 2010 to $1,360 million from $1,212 million in fiscal 2009. For fiscal 2010, accounts receivable decreased by $9 million, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, compared with a decline in the comparable prior year period of $199 million. For fiscal 2010, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other liabilities decreased $21 million, excluding the effect of foreign exchange, compared with a decrease in the comparable prior year period of $75 million.
 
Under our subscription and maintenance agreements, customers generally make installment payments over the term of the agreement, often with one payment due at contract execution, for the right to use our software products and receive product support, software fixes and new products when available. The timing and actual amounts of cash received from committed customer installment payments under any specific agreement can be affected by several factors, including the time value of money and the customer’s credit rating. Often, the amount received is the result of direct negotiations with the customer when establishing pricing and payment terms. In certain instances, the customer negotiates a price for a single installment payment and seeks its own internal or external financing sources. In other instances, we may assist the customer by arranging financing on the customer’s behalf through a third party financial institution. Alternatively, we may decide to transfer our rights to the future committed installment payments due under the license agreement to a third party financial institution in exchange for a cash payment. Once transferred, the future committed installments are payable by the customer to the third party financial institution. Whether the future committed installments have been financed directly by the customer with our assistance or by the transfer of our rights to future committed installments to a third party, such financing agreements may contain limited recourse provisions with respect to our continued performance under the license agreements. Based on our historical experience, we believe that any liability that we may incur as a result of these limited recourse provisions will be immaterial.
 
Amounts billed or collected as a result of a single installment for the entire contract value, or a substantial portion of the contract value, rather than being invoiced and collected over the life of the license agreement are reflected in the liability section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets as “Deferred revenue (billed or collected).” Amounts received from either the customer or a third-party financial institution in the current period that are attributable to later years of a license agreement have a positive effect on billings and cash provided by operating activities. Accordingly, to the extent such collections are attributable to the later years of a license agreement, billings and cash provided by operating activities during the license’s later years will be lower than if the payments were received over the license term. We are unable to predict with certainty the amount of cash to be collected from single installments for the entire contract value, or a substantial portion of the contract value, under new or renewed license agreements to be executed in future periods.
 
For fiscal 2010, gross receipts related to single installments for the entire contract value, or a substantial portion of the contract value, were $484 million, compared with $526 million in fiscal 2009.
 
Cash provided by operating activities typically increases in each consecutive quarter throughout the fiscal year in accordance with our bookings cycle, with the fourth quarter being the highest and the first quarter being the lowest. The timing of net cash provided by operating activities during the fiscal year is also affected by many other factors, including the timing of any customer financing or transfer of our interest in contractual installments and the level and timing of expenditures.
 
In any quarter, we may receive payments in advance of the contractually committed date on which the payments were otherwise due. In limited circumstances, we may offer discounts to customers to ensure payment in the current period of

invoices that have been billed, but might not otherwise be paid until a subsequent period because of payment terms or other factors. Historically, any such discounts have not been material.
 
Our estimate of the fair value of net installment accounts receivable recorded for license agreements signed prior to October 2000 (the prior business model) approximates carrying value. See “Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates” for additional information regarding the prior business model.
 
Amounts due from customers under our subscription license model are offset by deferred revenue related to these license agreements, leaving no or minimal net carrying value for such amounts. The fair value of such amounts may exceed, equal, or be less than this carrying value but cannot be practically assessed since there is no existing market for a pool of customer receivables with contractual commitments similar to those owned by us. The actual fair value may not be known until these amounts are sold, securitized or collected. Although these customer license agreements commit the customer to payments under a fixed schedule, to the extent amounts are not yet due and payable by the customer, the agreements are considered executory in nature due to our ongoing commitment to provide maintenance and unspecified future software products as part of the agreement terms. For further information on our installment accounts receivable, refer to Note 6, “Trade and Installment Accounts Receivable” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
We can estimate the total amounts to be billed from committed contracts, referred to as our billings backlog, and the total amount to be recognized as revenue from committed contracts, referred to as our revenue backlog.

Excluding the effect of foreign exchange, revenue to be recognized in the next 12 months increased by 4% at March 31, 2010 as compared with March 31, 2009.

Fiscal Year 2010 versus Fiscal Year 2009
Operating Activities:
Cash generated by operating activities for fiscal 2010 was $1,360 million, representing an increase of $148 million compared with fiscal 2009. The increase was driven primarily by lower vendor disbursements and payroll of $116 million which was mostly due to decreased operating costs.
 
Investing Activities:
Cash used in investing activities for fiscal 2010 was $888 million compared with $284 million for fiscal 2009. The increase in cash used in investing activities was primarily due to the increase in acquisition related costs of $541 million and an increase in capitalized software development costs of $59 million from the reallocation of resources previously spent on maintenance to new development projects and incremental development expenditures on acquired products and other strategic investments.
 
Financing Activities:
Cash used in financing activities for fiscal 2010 was $705 million compared with $759 million in fiscal 2009. The primary changes in cash used in financing activities were an increase in debt repayments of $525 million and an increase in repurchases of our common stock of $223 million, offset by $744 million of debt borrowings, net of debt issuance costs of $6 million and proceeds of $61 million received from the exercise of a call spread option associated with our 1.625% Convertible Senior Notes due December 2009.
 
During fiscal 2009, we repaid the remaining $350 million principal amount of our 6.500% Senior Notes that was due and we also repurchased $148 million principal amount of our 4.750% Senior Notes due 2009 at a price of $143 million in cash. Refer to the “Debt Arrangements” table below for additional information about our debt balances at March 31, 2010.
 
Fiscal Year 2009 versus Fiscal Year 2008
Operating Activities:
Cash generated by operating activities for fiscal 2009 was $1,212 million, representing an increase of $109 million compared with fiscal 2008. The increase was primarily due to a reduction of $212 million in vendor disbursements and payroll due to increased operating efficiencies and $78 million received from settlements of derivative contracts primarily resulting from the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the euro. The amounts received from the settlements of derivative contracts were mostly offset by the reduced value in dollars of net cash received due to foreign exchange movements. These increases were partially offset by a $225 million decrease in cash collections from billings, mostly due to a $115 million decrease in single installment payments.

33


Table of Contents

Investing Activities:
Cash used in investing activities for fiscal 2009 was $284 million compared with $219 million for fiscal 2008. Increases in cash paid for acquisitions, net of cash acquired, and capitalized software development costs of $49 million and $17 million, respectively, and a $27 million reduction due to proceeds from a sale-leaseback transaction that were realized in fiscal 2008 that did not recur in fiscal 2009. These increases were partially offset by reduced purchases of property and equipment of $34 million.
 
Financing Activities:
Cash used in financing activities for fiscal 2009 was $759 million compared with $572 million in fiscal 2008. The increase in cash used in financing activities was primarily due to the partial repayment of $324 million principal amount of our 4.750% Senior Notes due 2009 during the second half of fiscal 2009. In addition, during the first quarter of fiscal 2009, we repaid the remaining $350 million principal amount of our 6.500% Senior Notes that was due and payable at that time. Refer to the “Debt Arrangements” table below for additional information concerning our outstanding debt balances at March 31, 2009. Partially offsetting the debt repayments in fiscal 2009 was a decrease in common stock repurchases. During fiscal 2009, we repurchased $4 million of our own common stock, compared with $500 million in fiscal 2008.
 
As of March 31, 2010 and 2009, our debt arrangements consisted of the following:

During fiscal 2010, we repaid $500 million of borrowing under our 2008 Revolving Credit Facility, which expires in August 2012, $176 million of our 4.750% Senior Notes due December 2009, and $520 million of our 1.625% Convertible Senior Notes (1.625% Notes), of which approximately $460 million was for the outstanding principal of the debt and approximately $60 million was for the in-the-money conversion feature. The $60 million was recorded in “Additional paid-in capital” in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. These repayments are included in “Net cash used in financing activities” in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for fiscal 2010.
 
Concurrent with the original issuance of the 1.625% Notes in 2002, we entered into call spread repurchase option transactions (1.625% Notes Call Spread) to partially mitigate potential dilution from the conversion of the 1.625% Notes. We exercised the 1.625% Notes Call Spread in December 2009, resulting in option proceeds of approximately $61 million, which was recorded in “Additional paid-in capital” in the Consolidated Balance Sheet at March 31, 2010 and is included in “Net cash used in financing activities” in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows for fiscal 2010.
 
During fiscal 2010, we issued approximately $750 million principal amount of 5.375% Senior Notes due 2019 (the 5.375% Senior Notes). The net proceeds of the offering were approximately $738 million, after being issued at a discount of $6 million and deducting expenses, underwriting discounts and commissions of $6 million, all of which will be amortized over the term of the 5.375% Senior Notes. As of March 31, 2010, the principal amount of the 5.375% Senior Notes of $744 million, net of unamortized debt discount of $6 million, is included in the “Long-term debt, net of current portion” line item in the Consolidated Balance Sheet.
 
During fiscal 2010, we entered into three $100 million notional amount interest rate swap transactions to swap a portion of our fixed interest rate payments from our 6.125% Senior Notes due December 2014 into floating interest rate payments

34


Table of Contents

through December 1, 2014. Under the terms of the swaps, we will pay quarterly interest at rates of 2.915%, 2.779% and 2.999% on the first, second and third swap, respectively, plus the three-month LIBOR rate, and will receive interest payments at 5.625%, which is consistent with the original stated coupon at issuance. The LIBOR based rate is set quarterly three months prior to the date of the interest payment. The change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps from inception to March 31, 2010 was approximately $1 million and is reflected in “Other current assets” in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The carrying value of the debt was adjusted by an equal and offsetting amount.
 
As of March 31, 2010, the Company’s senior unsecured notes were rated Baa3, BBB, and BBB by Moody’s Investors Service (Moody’s), Standard and Poor’s (S&P) and Fitch Ratings (Fitch), respectively.
 
As of March 31, 2010 the outlook on these unsecured notes is rated stable by all three rating agencies.
 
For further information on our debt balances, refer to Note 8, “Debt,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
Stock Repurchases
During fiscal 2010, we entered into brokerage arrangements with third-party financial institutions to purchase our common stock in the open market on our behalf. We acquired approximately 10.0 million shares of our common stock for approximately $227 million under these arrangements during fiscal 2010. As of March 31, 2010, we were authorized to purchase an aggregate amount of up to approximately $19 million of additional shares of common stock under our current stock repurchase program. The remaining authorized amount of approximately $19 million was repurchased during April 2010, which completed the stock repurchase program authorized by our Board of Directors on October 29, 2008.
 
On May 12, 2010, our Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program that authorized us to acquire up to $500 million of our common stock. We will fund the program with available cash on hand and repurchase shares on the open market from time to time based on market conditions and other factors.
 
Dividends
We have paid cash dividends each year since July 1990. For fiscal 2010, 2009 and 2008, we paid annual cash dividends of $0.16 per share, which have been paid out in quarterly installments of $0.04 per share as and when declared by our Board of Directors. Total cash dividends paid was $83 million, $83 million and $82 million for fiscal 2010, fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2008, respectively.
 
Effect of Exchange Rate Changes
There was a $104 million favorable effect to our cash balances in fiscal 2010 predominantly due to the weakening of the U.S. dollar against the Australian dollar, Brazilian real and Canadian dollar of 32%, 29% and 24%, respectively. There was a $252 million unfavorable effect to our cash balances in fiscal 2009 predominantly due to the strengthening of the U.S. dollar against the euro, British pound, Australian dollar, Brazilian real and Canadian dollar of 16%, 28%, 24%, 24% and 19%, respectively.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
Prior to fiscal 2001, we sold individual accounts receivable to a third party subject to certain recourse provisions. The outstanding principal balance subject to recourse of these receivables approximated $21 million and $38 million as of March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
Other than the commitments and recourse provisions described above, we do not have any other off-balance sheet arrangements with unconsolidated entities or related parties and, accordingly, off-balance sheet risks to our liquidity and capital resources from unconsolidated entities are limited.
 
Contractual Obligations and Commitments
We have commitments under certain contractual arrangements to make future payments for goods and services. These contractual arrangements secure the rights to various assets and services to be used in the future in the normal course of business. For example, we are contractually committed to make certain minimum lease payments for the use of property under operating lease agreements. In accordance with current accounting rules, the future rights and related obligations pertaining to such contractual arrangements are not reported as assets or liabilities on our Consolidated Balance Sheets. We expect to fund these contractual arrangements with cash generated from operations in the normal course of business.

(2) Includes $3 million of estimated liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits under the “less than 1 year” column for amounts that are estimated to be settled within one year of the balance sheet date. In addition, $398 million of estimated liabilities for unrecognized tax benefits are excluded from the contractual obligations table because a reasonable estimate of when such amounts will become payable could not be made.
 
As of March 31, 2010, we have no material capital lease obligations, either individually or in the aggregate.
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
We review our financial reporting and disclosure practices and accounting policies quarterly to help ensure that they provide accurate and transparent information relative to the current economic and business environment. Note 1, “Significant Accounting Policies” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contains a summary of the significant accounting policies that we use. Many of these accounting policies involve complex situations and require a high degree of judgment, either in the application and interpretation of existing accounting literature or in the development of estimates that effect our financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments based on historical experience as well as other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. These estimates may change in the future if underlying assumptions or factors change.
 
We consider the following significant accounting policies to be critical because of their complexity and the high degree of judgment involved in implementing them.
 
Revenue Recognition
We generate revenue from the following primary sources: (1) licensing software products; (2) providing customer technical support (referred to as maintenance); and (3) providing professional services, such as product implementation, consulting and education. Revenue is recorded net of applicable sales taxes.
 
Under our subscription model, implemented in October 2000, software license agreements typically combine the right to use specified software products, the right to maintenance, and the right to receive and use unspecified future software products for no additional fee during the term of the agreement. For these subscription licenses we are required under GAAP to recognize revenue ratably over the term of the license agreement once all four of the following revenue recognition criteria are met: (1) we have evidence of an arrangement with a customer; (2) we deliver the specified products; (3) license agreement terms are fixed or determinable and free of contingencies or uncertainties that may alter the agreement such that it may not be complete and final; and (4) collection is probable.
 
Our subscription customers generally make installment payments for the right to use our software products over the term of the associated software license agreement. While the timing of revenue recognition is affected by the offering of unspecified future software products, it generally has not changed the timing of how we bill and collect cash from customers and as a result, our cash generated from operations has generally not been affected by the offering of unspecified future software products. For license agreements signed under the prior business model, once all four of the above noted revenue recognition criteria were met, software license fees were recognized as revenue generally when the software was delivered to the customer, or “up-front” (as the contracts did not include a right to unspecified future software products), and the maintenance fees were deferred and subsequently recognized as revenue over the term of the license.

Table of Contents

Revenue from professional service arrangements is generally recognized as the services are performed. Revenue and costs from committed professional services that are sold as part of a software license agreement are deferred and recognized on a ratable basis over the life of the related software transaction. Vendor-specific objective evidence (VSOE) of the fair value of professional services is established based on daily rates when sold on a stand-alone basis. If it is not probable that a project will be completed or the payment will be received, revenue is deferred until the uncertainty is removed.
 
Software fees and other revenue primarily consist of revenue from the sale of perpetual software licenses that do not include the right to unspecified software products on a stand-alone basis or in a bundled arrangement where VSOE exists for any undelivered elements. This includes revenue generated through transactions with distributors and volume partners, value added resellers and exclusive representatives (sometimes referred to as the Company’s “indirect” or “channel” revenue) and certain revenue associated with new or acquired products sold on an up-front basis. For bundle arrangements that include either maintenance or both maintenance and professional services, we use the residual method to determine the amount of license revenue to be recognized. Under the residual method, consideration is allocated to undelivered elements based upon VSOE of the fair value of those elements, with the residual of the arrangement fee allocated to and recognized as license revenue. We have established VSOE of the fair value of maintenance from either contractually stated renewal rates or using the bell-shaped curve method.
 
In the event that agreements with our customers are executed in close proximity of the other license agreements with the same customer, we evaluate whether the separate arrangements are linked, and, if so, are considered a single multi-element arrangement for which revenue is recognized ratably as “Subscription and maintenance revenue” in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
Some of our revenue from software licenses, including some newly developed and recently acquired products, is recognized on an up-front basis, subject to meeting the same revenue recognition criteria as described above. Software fees from such licenses are recognized up-front and are reported in the “Software fees and other” line item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. Maintenance fees from such licenses are recognized ratably over the term of the license and are reported in the “Subscription and maintenance revenue” line item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. License agreements under which software fees are recognized up-front do not include the right to receive unspecified future software products.
 
Our historical practice with respect to newly acquired products with established VSOE of fair value has been to record revenue initially on the acquired company’s systems, generally under an up-front model; and, starting within the first fiscal year after the acquisition, to enter new licenses for such products under our subscription model, following which revenue is recognized ratably and recorded as “Subscription and maintenance revenue.” More recently, we have been selling some of our products without the right to receive unspecified future software products in certain instances. The software license fees from these contracts are recorded on an up-front basis as “Software fees and other” as described above. Selling such licenses under an up-front model will result in higher total revenue in a reporting period than if such licenses were based on our subscription model and the associated revenue recognized ratably.
 
We are unable to establish VSOE of fair value for all undelivered elements in license agreements that include software products for which maintenance pricing is based on both discounted and undiscounted license list prices and arrangements that contain rights to unspecified future software products. If VSOE of fair value of one or more undelivered elements does not exist, license revenue is deferred and recognized upon delivery of those elements or when VSOE of fair value can be established. When the license includes the right to receive unspecified future software products, license revenue is recognized ratably over the term of the arrangement as VSOE does not exist for the future unspecified software products.
 
Revenue from sales to distributors and volume partners, value added resellers and exclusive representatives commences when all four of the revenue recognition criteria noted above are met and when these entities sell the software product to their customers. This is commonly referred to as the sell-through method.
 
We have an established business practice of offering installment payment options to customers and a history of successfully collecting substantially all amounts due under such agreements. We assess collectability based on a number of factors, including past transaction history with the customer and the creditworthiness of the customer. If, in our judgment, collection of a fee is not probable, we will not recognize revenue until the uncertainty is removed through the receipt of cash payment.
 
Our standard licensing agreements include a product warranty provision for all products. The likelihood that we will be required to make refunds to customers under such provisions is considered remote.

Under the terms of substantially all of our license agreements, we have agreed to indemnify customers for costs and damages arising from claims against such customers based on, among other things, allegations that our software products infringe the intellectual property rights of a third-party. In most cases and where legally enforceable, the indemnification is limited to the amount paid by the customer. In most cases, in the event of an infringement claim, we retain the right to (i) procure for the customer the right to continue using the software product; (ii) replace or modify the software product to eliminate the infringement while providing substantially equivalent functionality; or (iii) if neither (i) nor (ii) can be reasonably achieved, we may terminate the license agreement and refund to the customer a pro-rata portion of the fees paid. We consider the likelihood that we will be required to make refunds to customers under such provisions to be remote.
 
Accounts Receivable
The allowance for doubtful accounts is a valuation account used to reserve for the potential impairment of accounts receivable on the Consolidated Balance Sheets. In developing the estimate for the allowance for doubtful accounts, we rely on several factors, including:
 
    Historical information, such as general collection history of multi-year software agreements;
 
    Current customer information and events, such as extended delinquency, requests for restructuring, and filings for bankruptcy;
 
    Results of analyzing historical and current data; and
 
    The overall macroeconomic environment.
 
The allowance includes two components: (a) specifically identified receivables that are reviewed for impairment when, based on current information, we do not expect to collect the full amount due from the customer; and (b) an allowance for losses inherent in the remaining receivable portfolio based on historical activity.
 
Income Taxes
We account for income taxes under the asset and liability method. We recognize deferred tax assets and liabilities for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, along with net operating losses and tax credit carryforwards. We measure deferred tax assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. We recognize the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates in income in the period that includes the enactment date.
 
We recognize the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. We utilize a “more likely than not” threshold for the recognition and derecognition of tax positions and measure positions accordingly. We reflect changes in recognition or measurement in a period in which the change in judgment occurs. We record interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense.
 
Goodwill, Capitalized Software Products, and Other Intangible Assets
GAAP requires an impairment-only approach to accounting for goodwill and other intangibles with an indefinite life. Absent any prior indicators of impairment, we perform an annual impairment analysis during the fourth quarter of our fiscal year. We evaluate goodwill impairment based on a single reporting unit.
 
The goodwill impairment model is a two-step process. The first step is used to identify potential impairment by comparing the fair value of a reporting unit with its net book value (or carrying amount), including goodwill. If the fair value exceeds the carrying amount, goodwill of the reporting unit is not considered to be impaired and the second step of the impairment test is unnecessary. If the carrying amount of a reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the second step of the goodwill impairment test is performed to measure the amount of impairment loss, if any. The second step of the goodwill impairment test compares the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit’s goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. The implied fair value of goodwill is determined in the same manner as the amount of goodwill recognized in a business combination; that is, the fair value of the reporting unit is allocated to all of the assets and liabilities of that unit (including any unrecognized intangible assets) as if the reporting unit had been acquired in a business combination and the fair value of the reporting unit was the purchase price paid to acquire the reporting unit.

Table of Contents

The fair value of a reporting unit under the first step of the goodwill impairment test is measured using the quoted market price method. Determining the fair value of individual assets and liabilities of a reporting unit (including unrecognized intangible assets) under the second step of the goodwill impairment test is judgmental in nature and often involves the use of significant estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions could have a significant effect on whether an impairment charge is recognized and the magnitude of any such charge. These estimates are subject to review and approval by senior management. This approach uses significant assumptions, including projected future cash flow, the discount rate reflecting the risk inherent in future cash flow, and a terminal growth rate. We performed our annual assessment of goodwill during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010 and concluded that no impairment charge was required.
 
The carrying values of capitalized software products, for purchased software, internally developed software and other intangible assets are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that any excess of the carrying value over the net realizable value is written off. The facts and circumstances considered include an assessment of the net realizable value for capitalized software products and the future recoverability of the cost of other intangible assets as of the balance sheet date. It is not possible for us to predict the likelihood of any possible future impairments or, if such an impairment were to occur, the magnitude thereof.
 
Intangible assets with finite useful lives are subject to amortization over the expected period of economic benefit to us. We evaluate the remaining useful lives of intangible assets to determine whether events or circumstances have occurred that warrant a revision to the remaining amortization period. In cases where a revision to the remaining amortization period is deemed appropriate, the remaining carrying amounts of the intangible assets are amortized over the revised remaining useful life.
 
Accounting for Business Combinations
The allocation of the purchase price for acquisitions requires extensive use of accounting estimates and judgments to allocate the purchase price to the identifiable tangible and intangible assets acquired, including in-process research and development, and liabilities assumed based on their respective fair values.
 
Product Development and Enhancements
GAAP specifies that costs incurred internally in researching and developing a computer software product should be charged to expense until technological feasibility has been established for the product. Once technological feasibility is established, all software costs are capitalized until the product is available for general release to customers. Judgment is required in determining when technological feasibility of a product is established and assumptions are used that reflect our best estimates. If other assumptions had been used in the current period to estimate technological feasibility, the reported product development and enhancement expense could have been affected. Annual amortization of capitalized software costs is the greater of the amount computed using the ratio that current gross revenues for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues for that product or the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the software product, generally estimated to be five years from the date the product became available for general release to customers. We amortize capitalized software costs using the straight-line method.
 
Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation
We currently maintain several stock-based compensation plans. We use the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to compute the estimated fair value of certain stock-based awards. The Black-Scholes model includes assumptions regarding dividend yields, expected volatility, expected lives, and risk-free interest rates. These assumptions reflect our best estimates, but these items involve uncertainties based on market and other conditions outside of our control. As a result, if other assumptions had been used, stock-based compensation expense could have been materially affected. Furthermore, if different assumptions are used in future periods, stock-based compensation expense could be materially affected in future years.
 
As described in Note 11, “Stock Plans,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements, performance share units (PSUs) are awards under the long-term incentive programs for senior executives where the number of shares or restricted shares, as applicable, ultimately received by the employee depends on Company performance measured against specified targets and will be determined after a three-year or one-year period, as applicable. The fair value of each award is estimated on the date that the performance targets are established based on the fair value of our stock and our estimate of the level of achievement of our performance targets. We are required to recalculate the fair value of issued PSUs each reporting period

until the underlying shares are granted. The adjustment is based on the quoted market price of our stock on the reporting period date. Each quarter, we compare the actual performance we expect to achieve with the performance targets.
 
Legal Contingencies
We are currently involved in various legal proceedings and claims. Periodically, we review the status of each significant matter and assess our potential financial exposure. If the potential loss from any legal proceeding or claim is considered probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated, we accrue a liability for the estimated loss. Significant judgment is required in both the determination of the probability of a loss and the determination as to whether the amount of loss is reasonably estimable. Due to the uncertainties related to these matters, the decision to record an accrual and the amount of accruals recorded are based only on the best information available at the time. As additional information becomes available, we reassess the potential liability related to our pending litigation and claims, and may revise our estimates. Such revisions could have a material effect on our results of operations. Refer to Note 9, “Commitments and Contingencies,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for a description of our material legal proceedings.
 
New Accounting Pronouncements
In September 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) ratified Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2009-13 (previously Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) Issue No. 08-1, Revenue Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables) . ASU 2009-13 superseded EITF No. 00-21, “Revenue Arrangements with Multiple Deliverables,” and addresses criteria for separating the consideration in certain multiple-element arrangements. ASU 2009-13 will require companies to allocate the overall consideration to each deliverable by using a best estimate of the selling price of individual deliverables in the arrangement in the absence of VSOE or other third-party evidence of the selling price. ASU 2009-13 will be effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010 and early adoption will be permitted. The adoption of ASU 2009-13 will not have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations or financial condition.
 
In September 2009, the FASB ratified ASC ASU 2009-14 (previously EITF No. 09-3, Certain Revenue Arrangements That Include Software Elements) . ASU 2009-14 modifies the scope of software revenue recognition to exclude (a) non-software components of tangible products and (b) software components of tangible products that are sold, licensed, or leased with tangible products when the software components and non-software components of the tangible product function together to deliver the tangible product’s essential functionality. ASU 2009-14 has an effective date that is consistent with ASU 2009-13. The adoption of ASU 2009-14 will not have a material effect on our consolidated results of operations or financial condition.
 
ITEM 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
 
Interest Rate Risk
Our exposure to market rate risk for changes in interest rates relates primarily to our investment portfolio, debt, and installment accounts receivable. We have a prescribed methodology whereby we invest our excess cash in liquid investments that are composed of money market funds and debt instruments of government agencies and high-quality corporate issuers (S&P single “A” rating and higher). To mitigate risk, all of the securities have a maturity date within one year, and holdings of any one issuer do not exceed 10% of the portfolio.
 
As of March 31, 2010, our outstanding debt was $1,545 million, all of which was in fixed rate obligations except for our 2008 Revolving Credit Facility which had a $250 million balance as of March 31, 2010 (Refer to Note 8, “Debt,” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information).
 
During fiscal year 2009, we entered into interest rate swaps with a total notional value of $250 million to hedge the variable interest rate payments relating to the 2008 Revolving Credit Facility. These derivatives are designated as cash flow hedges. Under the terms of the interest rate swaps, we will pay interest at an annualized rate of 2.70% and 2.95% and receive interest payment at the one month LIBOR rate.
 
During fiscal 2010, we entered into three interest rate swap transactions to swap a total of $300 million of our 6.125% Senior Notes (the 6.125% Notes) due December 2014 into floating interest rate debt through December 1, 2014. Under the terms of the swaps, we will pay quarterly interest at a rate of 2.915%, 2.779% and 2.999% on the first, second and third swap, respectively, plus the three month LIBOR rate, and will receive payment at 5.625%. The LIBOR base rate is set quarterly three months prior to date of the interest payment. The change in the fair value of the interest rate swaps from

inception to March 31, 2010 was approximately $1 million and is reflected in “Other current assets” in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. The carrying value of the debt was adjusted by an equal and offsetting amount. Each 25 basis point increase or decrease in interest rates would have a corresponding effect on the annual interest expense related to our interest rates swaps that relate to the 6.125% Notes of less than $1 million as of March 31, 2010.
 
Foreign Currency Exchange Risk
We conduct business on a worldwide basis through subsidiaries in 46 countries and, as such, a portion of our revenues, earnings and net investments in foreign affiliates is exposed to changes in foreign exchange rates. We seek to manage our foreign exchange risk in part through operational means, including managing expected local currency revenues in relation to local currency costs and local currency assets in relation to local currency liabilities. In October 2005, our Board of Directors adopted our Risk Management Policy and Procedures, which authorize us to manage, based on management’s assessment, our risks and exposures to foreign currency exchange rates through the use of derivative financial instruments (e.g., forward contracts, options and swaps) or other means. We only use derivative financial instruments in the context of hedging and do not use them for speculative purposes.
 
During fiscal 2010 and 2009, we did not designate our foreign exchange derivatives as hedges. Accordingly, all foreign exchange derivatives are recognized on the Consolidated Balance Sheets at fair value and unrealized or realized changes in fair value from these contracts are recorded as “Other expenses (gains), net” in our Consolidated Statements of Operations. Refer to Note 4, “Derivatives and Fair Value Measurement,” for additional information regarding our derivative activities.
 
If foreign currency exchange rates affecting our business weakened by 10% on an overall basis in comparison to the U.S. dollar, the amount of cash and cash equivalents we would report in U.S. dollars would decrease by approximately $119 million.
 
ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA.
 
Our Consolidated Financial Statements are included in Part IV, Item 15 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and are incorporated herein by reference.
 
The Supplementary Data specified by Item 302 of Regulation S-K as it relates to selected quarterly data is included in the “Selected Quarterly Information” section of Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” Information on the effects of changing prices is not required.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
Under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the Company has evaluated the effectiveness of its disclosure controls and procedures as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures are effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
 
(b) Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
 
The Company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets

41


Table of Contents

of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
Management conducted its evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2010 based on the framework in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Management’s evaluation included the design of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting and the operating effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Based on that evaluation, the Company’s management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
 
The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, KPMG LLP, have audited the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as stated in their report which appears on page 52 of this Form 10-K.
 
(c) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
Except as disclosed in the following paragraph, there were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act, that occurred during the most recently completed fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
 
In the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, the Company began the migration of certain financial and sales processing systems to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in its Europe, Middle East and Africa region. The changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting associated with this ERP implementation continued during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2010.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
The Board of Directors and Stockholders
CA, Inc.:
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of CA, Inc. and subsidiaries as of March 31, 2010 and 2009, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for each of the fiscal years in the three-year period ended March 31, 2010. In connection with our audits of the consolidated financial statements, we also have audited the consolidated financial statement schedule listed in Item 15(c). We also have audited CA, Inc.’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2010, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). CA, Inc.’s management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements and the consolidated financial statement schedule, for maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting, and for its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting, included in the accompanying Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting under Item 9A(b). Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements and the consolidated financial statement schedule, and an opinion on the Company’s internal control over financial reporting based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement and whether effective internal control over financial reporting was maintained in all material respects. Our audits of the consolidated financial statements included examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. Our audit of internal control over financial reporting included obtaining an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, assessing the risk that a material weakness exists, and testing and evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of internal control based on the assessed risk. Our audits also included performing such other procedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinions.
 
A company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of CA, Inc. and subsidiaries as of March 31, 2010 and 2009, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the fiscal years in the three-year period ended March 31, 2010, in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. Also, in our opinion, the related consolidated financial statement schedule, when considered in relation to the basic consolidated financial statements taken as a whole, presents fairly, in all material respects, the information set forth therein.
 
Also, in our opinion, CA, Inc. maintained, in all material respects, effective internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2010, based on criteria established in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by COSO.
 
Effective April 1, 2007, the Company adopted the provisions of Accounting Standard Codification 740, Income Taxes , clarifying the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements.

Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements
 
Note 1 — Significant Accounting Policies
(a) Description of Business: CA, Inc. and subsidiaries (the Company) develops, markets, delivers and licenses software products and services.
 
(b) Presentation of Financial Statements: The accompanying audited consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), as defined in the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 205. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Although these estimates are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions it may undertake in the future, these estimates may ultimately differ from actual results. Significant items subject to such estimates and assumptions include the useful lives of long-lived assets; allowances for doubtful accounts; the valuation of derivatives, deferred tax assets, fixed assets; share-based compensation; reserves for employee benefit obligations; sales commissions; income tax uncertainties; and other contingencies. The current economic environment has increased the degree of uncertainty inherent in those estimates and assumptions.
 
Certain prior year balances have been reclassified to conform to the current period’s presentation.
 
(c) Principles of Consolidation: The Consolidated Financial Statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority-owned and controlled subsidiaries. Investments in affiliates owned 50% or less are accounted for by the equity method. Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Companies acquired during each reporting period are reflected in the results of the Company effective from their respective dates of acquisition through the end of the reporting period (for further information, refer to Note 2, “Acquisitions”).
 
(d) Adoption of new accounting principles: Effective September 15, 2009, the Company adopted the requirements of FASB ASC Topic 105 (previously Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 168, “FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” ). FASB ASC Topic 105 is effective for financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009 and establishes the ASC as the source of authoritative GAAP, except for rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), which are sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The adoption of the ASC was not intended to change or alter existing GAAP and therefore did not have any effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. References to the relevant ASC section and the corresponding previously existing GAAP standard have been provided for accounting standards adopted in fiscal year 2010 but prior to the effective date of the ASC.
 
Effective April 1, 2009, the Company adopted the fair value measurement and disclosure requirements of FASB ASC Topic 820 (previously SFAS No. 157, “ Fair Value Measurements” ) for all nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually), for which the requirements were adopted on April 1, 2008. The April 1, 2009 adoption did not have an effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
(e) Translation of Foreign Currencies: Assets and liabilities of the Company’s international subsidiaries are translated using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Results of operations are translated using average exchange rates. Adjustments arising from the translation of the foreign currency financial statements of the Company’s subsidiaries into U.S. dollars are reported as currency translation adjustment in the “Retained earnings” line item in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
 
Gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are included in the “Other expenses (gains), net” line item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations in the period in which they occur. Foreign currency transaction gains (losses) and the effect of foreign currency related derivatives, net of taxes, were approximately $(6) million, $7 million and $17 million in the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
(f) Revenue Recognition: The Company begins to recognize revenue from software licensing and maintenance when all of the following criteria are met: (1) the Company has evidence of an arrangement with a customer; (2) the Company delivers the specified products; (3) license agreement terms are fixed or determinable and free of contingencies or uncertainties that may

57

alter the agreement such that it may not be complete and final; and (4) collection is probable. Revenue is recorded net of applicable sales taxes.
 
The Company’s software licenses generally do not include acceptance provisions. An acceptance provision allows a customer to test the software for a defined period of time before committing to license the software. If a license agreement includes an acceptance provision, the Company does not recognize revenue until the earlier of the receipt of a written customer acceptance or, if not notified by the customer to cancel the license agreement, the expiration of the acceptance period. The Company’s standard licensing agreements include a product warranty provision for all products. The likelihood that the Company will be required to make refunds to customers under such provisions is considered remote.
 
Subscription and Maintenance Revenue: Software licenses that include the right to receive unspecified future software products are considered subscription arrangements under GAAP and are recognized ratably over the term of the license agreement. Subscription and maintenance revenue is the amount of revenue recognized ratably during the reporting period from either: (i) subscription license agreements that were in effect during the period, which generally include maintenance that is bundled with and not separately identifiable from software usage fees or product sales; (ii) maintenance agreements associated with providing customer technical support and access to software fixes and upgrades which are separately identifiable from software usage fees or product sales; or (iii) software license agreements bundled with maintenance for which vendor specific objective evidence of fair value (VSOE) has not been established for maintenance. Revenue for these arrangements is recognized ratably over the term of the subscription or maintenance term.
 
Professional Services: Revenue from professional service arrangements is generally recognized as the services are performed. Revenue and costs from committed professional services that are sold as part of a subscription license agreement are deferred and recognized on a ratable basis over the term of the related software license. VSOE of the fair value of professional services is established based on daily rates when sold on a stand-alone basis. If it is not probable that a project will be completed or the payment will be received, revenue recognition is deferred until the uncertainty is removed.
 
Software Fees and Other: Software fees and other revenue primarily consists of revenue from the sale of perpetual software licenses on a stand-alone basis that do not include the right to unspecified software products or in a bundled arrangement where VSOE exists for any undelivered elements. For bundle arrangements that include either maintenance or both maintenance and professional services, the Company uses the residual method to determine the amount of license revenue to be recognized. Under the residual method, consideration is allocated to undelivered elements based upon VSOE of the fair value of those elements, with the residual of the arrangement fee allocated to and recognized as license revenue. The Company determines VSOE of the fair value of maintenance from either contractually stated renewal rates or using the bell-shaped curve method depending on the product.
 
In the event that agreements with the Company’s customers are executed in close proximity of the other license agreements with the same customer, the Company evaluates whether the separate arrangements are linked, and, if so, the agreements together are considered a single multi-element arrangement for which revenue is recognized ratably as subscription and maintenance revenue or, in the case of a linked professional services arrangement, as professional services revenue, in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
(g) Sales Commissions: Sales commissions are recognized in the period the commissions are earned by employees, which is typically upon signing of the contract. Under the Company’s current sales compensation model, during periods of high growth and sales of new products relative to revenue in that period, the amount of sales commission expense attributable to the license agreements signed in the period would be recognized fully whereas the revenue may be recognized ratably.
 
(h) Accounting for Share-Based Compensation: Share-based awards exchanged for employee services are accounted for under the fair value method. Accordingly, share-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the fair value of the award. The expense for awards expected to vest is recognized over the employee’s requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the award). Awards expected to vest are estimated based upon a combination of historical experience and future expectations.
 
The Company has elected to treat awards with only service conditions and with graded vesting as one award. Consequently, the total compensation expense is recognized straight-line over the entire vesting period, so long as the compensation cost recognized at any date at least equals the portion of the grant date fair value of the award that is vested at that date.

58


Table of Contents

 
The Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to compute the estimated fair value of certain stock-based awards. The Black-Scholes model includes assumptions regarding dividend yields, expected volatility, expected lives, and risk-free interest rates.
 
In addition to stock options and restricted share awards with time-based vesting, the Company issues performance share units (PSUs). Compensation costs for the PSUs are amortized over the requisite service periods based on the expected level of achievement of the performance targets. At the conclusion of the performance periods, the applicable number of shares of restricted share awards (RSAs) or restricted stock units (RSUs) or unrestricted shares granted may vary based upon the level of achievement of the performance targets and the approval of the Company’s Compensation and Human Resources Committee (which has discretion to reduce any award for any reason). The value of the PSU awards is remeasured each reporting period until the Committee approves attainment of the specified performance targets, at which time a grant date is deemed to have been achieved for accounting purposes, the value of the award is fixed and any remaining unrecognized compensation expense is recognized over the remaining vesting period.
 
(i) Net Income per Share: Under the two-class method, net income is reduced by the amount of dividends declared in the period for each class of common stock and participating securities. The remaining undistributed income is then allocated to common stock and participating securities as if all of the net income for the period had been distributed. Basic income per common share excludes dilution and is calculated by dividing net income allocable to common shares by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted income per common share is calculated by dividing net income allocable to common shares by the weighted-average number of common shares as of the balance sheet date, as adjusted for the potential dilutive effect of non-participating share-based awards and convertible notes.
 
The following table reconciles income per common share for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Diluted income per share
  $ 1.47     $ 1.29     $ 0.92  
                         
 
(1) If the common share equivalents for the 1.625% Notes (23 million shares) had been dilutive in the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, interest expense, net of tax, related to the 1.625% Notes would have been added back to net income to calculate diluted earnings per share. The related interest expense, net of tax, for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008 was approximately $24 million.
 
For the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008, approximately 6 million, 14 million and 13 million restricted stock units and options to purchase common stock, respectively, were excluded from the calculation, as their effect on net income per share was anti-dilutive during the respective periods. Weighted average restricted stock awards of 5 million, 5 million and 4 million for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009, and 2008, respectively, were considered participating securities in the calculation of net income available to common shareholders.

(j) Comprehensive Income: Comprehensive income includes net income, foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains (losses), net of taxes, on the Company’s derivatives accounted for as cash flow hedges. As of March 31, 2010 and 2009, accumulated other comprehensive loss included foreign currency translation losses of approximately $127 million and $178 million, respectively. As of March 31, 2010 and 2009, accumulated other comprehensive loss also includes unrealized losses on derivatives, net of tax, of $3 million and $5 million, respectively. The components of comprehensive income, net of tax, for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008 are included within the Consolidated Statements of Stockholders’ Equity. For further information on the Company’s derivatives, refer to Note 4, “Derivatives and Fair Value Measurement.”
 
(k) Concentration of Credit Risk: Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist primarily of cash equivalents, derivatives and accounts receivable. The Company historically has not experienced any losses in its cash and cash equivalent portfolios.
 
Amounts included in accounts receivable expected to be collected from customers, as disclosed in Note 6, “Trade and Installment Accounts Receivable,” have limited exposure to concentration of credit risk due to the diverse customer base and geographic areas covered by operations.
 
(l) Cash and Cash Equivalents: All financial instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less are considered cash equivalents. The Company’s cash and cash equivalents are held by numerous subsidiaries throughout the world, with approximately 46% residing outside the United States at March 31, 2010.
 
Total interest income, which primarily relates to the Company’s cash and cash equivalent balances, for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2010, 2009 and 2008 was approximately $26 million, $70 million and $92 million, respectively, and is included in the “Interest expense, net” line item in the Consolidated Statements of Operations.
 
(m) Long Lived Assets:
 
Impairment of Property and Equipment and Purchased Intangible Assets: Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment, and purchased intangible assets subject to amortization, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. If circumstances require a long-lived asset or asset group be tested for possible impairment, the Company first compares undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by that asset or asset group to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, an impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques including discounted cash flow models, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary.
 
Property and Equipment: Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation and amortization are provided over the estimated useful lives of the assets by the straight-line method. Building and improvements are estimated to have 5- to 40-year lives, and the remaining property and equipment are estimated to have 3- to 7-year lives.
 
Capitalized Development Costs: Capitalized development costs in the accompanying Consolidated Balance Sheets include costs associated with the development of computer software to be sold, leased or otherwise marketed. Software development costs associated with new products and significant enhancements to existing software products are expensed as incurred until technological feasibility has been established. Annual amortization of capitalized software costs is the greater of the amount computed using the ratio that current gross revenues for a product bear to the total of current and anticipated future gross revenues for that product or the straight-line method over the remaining estimated economic life of the software product, generally estimated to be five years from the date the product became available for general release to customers. The Company amortizes capitalized software costs using the straight-line method.
 
Purchased Software Products: Purchased software products includes the cost of software technology acquired in purchase business combinations. In allocating the purchase price to the assets acquired in a purchase business combination, the Company allocates a portion of the purchase price equal to the fair value of the acquired software technology at the acquisition date. The Company amortizes all purchased software costs over their remaining economic lives, estimated to be between two and ten years from the date of acquisition.
 
Other Identified Intangible Assets: Other identified intangible assets include both customer relationships and trademarks/trade names.

60


Table of Contents

 
Certain identified intangible assets with indefinite lives are not subject to amortization. The Company reviews its long lived assets and identifiable intangible assets with indefinite lives for impairment annually or whenever events or changes in business circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable or that the useful lives of these assets are no longer appropriate. During fiscal years 2010 and 2009, the Company did not record impairment charges relating to identifiable intangible assets that were acquired in conjunction with prior year acquisitions and not subject to amortization. The Company amortizes all other identified intangible assets over their remaining economic lives, estimated to be between three and twelve years from the date of acquisition.
 
Goodwill: Goodwill represents the excess of the aggregate purchase price over the fair value of the net tangible and identifiable intangible assets and in-process research and development acquired by the Company in a purchase business combination. Goodwill is not amortized into results of operations but instead is reviewed for impairment.
 
For further information on the Company’s long-lived assets, refer to Note 7, “Long-Lived Assets.”
 
(n) Restricted Cash: The Company’s insurance subsidiary requires a minimum restricted cash balance of $50 million. In addition, the Company has other restricted cash balances, including cash collateral for letters of credit. The total amount of restricted cash as of March 31, 2010 and 2009 was approximately $55 million and $56 million, respectively, and is included in the “Other noncurrent assets, net” line item in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
 
(o) Income Taxes: Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities from a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.
 
Beginning with the adoption of FASB Interpretation No. 48 , Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes, (“FIN 48”) included in FASB ASC Subtopic 740-10 — Income Taxes — Overall, the Company recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Among other things FIN 48 prescribes a “more-likely-than-not” threshold for the recognition and derecognition of tax positions and measures positions accordingly. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs. The Company records interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions in income tax expense.
 
(p) Deferred Revenue (Billed or Collected): The Company accounts for unearned revenue on billed amounts due from customers on a “gross method” of presentation. Under the gross method, unearned revenue on billed installments (collected or uncollected) is reported as deferred revenue in the liability section of the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
 
Deferred revenue (billed or collected) is comprised of: (i) amounts received in advance of revenue recognition from the customer; (ii) amounts billed but not collected for which revenue has not yet been earned; and (iii) amounts received in advance of revenue recognition from financial institutions where the Company has transferred its interest in committed installments. Each of the categories is further differentiated by current or non-current classification depending on when the revenue is anticipated to be earned ( i.e. , within the next 12 months or subsequent to the next 12 months).
