PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - July 07, 2015) - VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, plans to announce second quarter 2015 financial results after market close on Tuesday, July 21, 2015.

A live web broadcast of the event will be available on the VMware Investor Relations website at  http://ir.vmware.com. The replay of the webcast will be available for two months.

VMware expects to report non-GAAP total revenue for Q2 2015 that excludes the recently announced settlement with the Department of Justice (DOJ) and General Services Administration (GSA) for $75.5 million, which was paid in cash in Q2 2015.This payment will be recorded as a reduction of total revenues and GAAP EPS in VMware's Q2 2015 financial statements. The settlement will have no effect on non-GAAP revenue or non-GAAP EPS, but was not reflected in VMware's previously provided cash flow guidance for 2015. VMware expects its Q2 2015 non-GAAP total revenue to be in-line with its previously issued total revenue guidance of between $1.58 billion and $1.60 billion and expects its Q2 2015 non-GAAP EPS to be in-line with its previously issued guidance of between $0.90-0.92.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains forward-looking statements including, among other things, statements regarding expected non-GAAP total revenue and non-GAAP EPS for Q2 2015. These forward-looking statements are subject to the safe harbor provisions created by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Actual results could differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of certain risk factors. VMware's expectations about its quarterly results are based on preliminary information about Q2 2015 and are subject to revision. Although the quarter is now completed, VMware is still in the early stages of its standard financial reporting closing procedures. Accordingly, as VMware completes its normal quarter-end closing and review processes, actual results could differ materially from its preliminary estimates. Factors that could cause VMware's actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements include: inaccurate data or assumptions; unforeseen expenses; changes in estimates or judgments related to tax liabilities; potential goodwill impairments; potential litigation, bad debts or other contingencies; and facts or circumstances affecting the application of VMware's critical accounting policies, including revenue recognition. These forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and are subject to uncertainties and changes in condition, significance, value and effect as well as other risks detailed in documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including VMware's most recent reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K that we may file from time to time, which could cause actual results to vary from expectations. VMware assumes no obligation to, and does not currently intend to, update any such forward-looking statements after the date of this release.
