The restructuring announced today further strengthens our financial position and aligns our resources with the significant growth opportunity of our business."

Recent Business Highlights:

  • On July 25, 2013 we strengthened the board of directors through the addition of a new independent director, Heidi Melin, currently the chief marketing officer of Plex Systems, Inc., a cloud Enterprise Resource Planning ("ERP") technology company that delivers plant floor-focused ERP to manufacturers. Ms. Melin brings to Accelrys more than 20 years of experience in marketing in the high technology industry.

Specific business highlights from the quarter ended June 30, 2013 include the release of new products such as:

  • The Experiment Knowledge Base, the first informatics system for R&D that gives scientists the ability to search and mine experimentation data from almost any source
  • The enhanced Accelrys Process Management and Compliance Suite with Discoverant 4.3, providing new enterprise manufacturing process intelligence capabilities
  • The Accelrys Enterprise Platform 9.0, which has expansive capabilities for managing Big Data and the challenges associated with externalization
  • A cloud-based Externalized Collaboration Suite, which addresses the needs of life sciences organizations engaged in collaborative network research

In addition, Accelrys continued to enhance its relationships with partners, by:

  • Expanding our relationship with BT through the release of our industry-leading research and collaboration workspace, HEOS, on the BT Life Sciences R&D Cloud; and
  • Further strengthening our partnership with BT through the development of innovative data mining strategies using Accelrys Enterprise Platform to handle large sets of structured and unstructured data, such as BT's collations of public health data, which have previously proven difficult, if not impossible, to manage with other technologies

Realignment of Company Operations:

Separately today the Company announced the restructuring of approximately 80 employees, or about 12% of its total workforce, and the abandonment of a portion of one of its facilities in San Ramon, California. These actions are intended to reduce costs and to realign the Company's operations to focus on growth opportunities within the Company's market segments. Approximately 40 positions will be filled in different capacities or locations to rebalance the skillset as part of this realignment.

Calendar Year 2013 Outlook

For the year ending December 31, 2013, the Company expects non-GAAP revenue to be between $176 and $179 million, and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be between $0.32 and $0.34 per diluted share on fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 57 million and using an effective tax rate of 40 percent.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release describes financial measures for non-GAAP revenue, operating income, net income, net income per diluted share and free cash flow that exclude deferred revenue fair value adjustments, acquisition-related cost of revenue, business consolidation, transaction and headquarter-relocation costs, stock-based compensation expense, purchased intangible asset amortization, royalty income fair value adjustments, amortization of note receivable discount, gain on sale of real estate, gain on sale of intellectual property, write-off of lease related assets and other non-operating expense. Additionally, our non-GAAP net income reflects an effective pro-forma tax rate of 40 percent. These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles.

Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide a useful measure of the Company's operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company's ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors utilize these measures, in addition to GAAP measures, when evaluating and comparing the Company's operating performance against internal financial forecasts and budgets. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

For additional information on the items excluded by the Company from its non-GAAP financial measures please refer to the Form 8-K regarding this release that was furnished today to the Securities and Exchange Commission.
