ATLANTA, April 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Leading Supply Chain Commerce Solutions provider Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ:MANH) today reported GAAP diluted earnings per share for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017 of $0.40 compared to $0.38 in Q1 2016, on record license revenue of $22.8 million and total revenue of $143.5 million. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.42 in both Q1 2017 and Q1 2016.
“Our first quarter results reflect the balance between strong license fee performance and retail macro challenges. Q1 represents another record license quarter with solid pipeline activity in all three regions against a strong comparable. Our Professional Services business continues to experience headwinds muting solid financial performance across all other key metrics,” said Eddie Capel, president and chief executive officer of Manhattan Associates.
“We expect that retail market headwinds will persist throughout 2017 as many retailers address strategic challenges with enterprise transformation. While those transformations bring opportunities for Manhattan, they can also slow decision making. Given the outlook, we have lowered our revenue expectations for the year while maintaining our earnings per share guidance. More importantly, we continue to be very bullish on the market opportunity ahead of us and are investing significant energy and capital into innovation and advancing the world’s leading suite of Supply Chain Commerce solutions to extend our market leadership in 2017 and beyond.”

GAAP VERSUS NON-GAAP PRESENTATION
The Company provides adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share in this press release as additional information regarding the Company’s historical and projected operating results. These measures are not in accordance with – or alternatives to – GAAP, and may be different from non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP earnings per share measures used by other companies. The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures facilitates investors’ ability to understand and compare the Company’s results and guidance, because the measures provide supplemental information in evaluating the operating results of its business, as distinct from results that include items that are not indicative of ongoing operating results, and because the Company believes its peers typically publish similar non-GAAP measures. This release should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Form 8-K earnings release filing for the three months ended March 31, 2017.
Non-GAAP adjusted operating income, adjusted income tax provision, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share exclude the impact of equity-based compensation and acquisition-related costs and the amortization thereof – all net of income tax effects. Reconciliations of the Company’s GAAP financial measures to non-GAAP adjustments are included in the supplemental information attached to this release.

This press release contains “forward-looking statements” relating to Manhattan Associates, Inc. Forward-looking statements in this press release include the information set forth under “2017 Guidance.” Prospective investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: uncertainty about the global economy, delays in product development, competitive pressures, software errors, information security breaches and the risk factors set forth in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. Manhattan Associates undertakes no obligation to update or revise forward-looking statements to reflect changed assumptions, the occurrence of unanticipated events or changes in future operating results.
(a) Adjusted results exclude all equity-based compensation, to facilitate comparison with our peers and for the other reasons explained in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on the date hereof. Equity-based compensation is included in the following GAAP operating expense lines for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016:
(b) During the first quarter of 2017, we adopted Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation: Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, to improve the accounting for employee share-based payments. Under the new guidance, all excess tax benefits and certain tax deficiencies are recognized as income tax expense or benefit in the income statements on a prospective basis, rather than recorded in additional paid-in capital. The adjustment represents the excess tax benefits of the stock awards vested during the period. Excess tax benefits occur when the amount deductible for an award of equity instruments on our tax return is more than the cumulative compensation cost recognized for financial reporting purposes. As discussed above, we excluded equity-based compensation from adjusted non-GAAP results to be consistent with other companies in the software industry. Therefore, we also excluded the related tax benefit generated upon their vesting.
(c) Adjustments represent purchased intangibles amortization from prior acquisition. Such amortization is excluded from adjusted results to facilitate comparison with our peers, to facilitate comparisons of the results of our core operations from period to period and for the other reasons explained in our Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on the date hereof.
