“VMware delivered over $10 billion in revenue for the first time in company history in fiscal 2020, along with continued double-digit topline growth,” commented Pat Gelsinger, CEO, VMware. “Our results demonstrate the power of our broad-based portfolio and a strategy that continues to resonate with our customers.”

 

“We signed a record number of enterprise agreements above $10 million in Q4, including a significant increase in the value of subscription and SaaS offerings in the top ten agreements,” said Zane Rowe, executive vice president and CFO, VMware. “Subscription and SaaS revenue grew 52% year-over-year in the fourth quarter to $556 million and is expected to continue strong growth in fiscal 2021.”

 

Growth rates in Q4 results include the recast of prior period financial information due to the Pivotal acquisition, which was accounted for as a transaction between entities under common control in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Effective with the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, VMware is presenting a new revenue line item in its earnings reports entitled “subscription and SaaS revenue.” Accordingly, reported revenue consists of the following three components: license, subscription and SaaS, and services. Previously, subscription and SaaS revenue was referred to as “hybrid cloud subscription and SaaS revenue” and was allocated between license and services revenue. The cost of subscription and SaaS revenue was included in both cost of license revenue and cost of services revenue in prior periods and has been reclassified to conform with current period presentation.

 

To assist investors in their understanding of the impact of (1) combined Pivotal with VMware results in the recast financial statements and (2) reclassifying revenue from two to three categories, the company has posted a slide deck on its Investor Relations webpage at ir.vmware.com. The slide deck details the impact of Pivotal adjustments and the reclassification of revenues on VMware’s fourth quarter of fiscal 2020 results to enable investors to compare VMware’s performance in the quarter to the fourth quarter guidance that VMware provided on its previous quarter earnings call on November 26, 2019, which excluded Pivotal, as the acquisition had not been completed at that time, and did not separate out subscription and SaaS revenue. The slide deck also includes a similar comparison of VMware’s full year fiscal 2020 cash flows to November 26, 2019 guidance and a tabular summary of the differences in key metrics between VMware’s financial statements as previously reported and as recast for the seven fiscal quarters beginning with the first quarter of fiscal 2019 and for full year fiscal 2019.

 

Business Highlights & Strategic Announcements

  • VMware completed the acquisition of Pivotal on December 30, 2019. The combination of Pivotal’s developer-centric offerings with VMware’s upstream Kubernetes run-time infrastructure and management tools will allow VMware to deliver a comprehensive enterprise solution that enables dramatic improvements in developer productivity in the creation of modern applications.
  • At the RSA Conference, VMware advanced its Intrinsic Security Strategy for the world’s digital infrastructure by announcing “VMware Advanced Security for Cloud Foundation,” a new security suite that enables customers to replace legacy security solutions and deliver unified protection across private and public clouds. Product update announcements also included enhancements to the VMware Carbon Black Cloud and VMware Secure State.
  • VMware showcased how communications service providers (CSPs) across the world—including Millicom, Singtel, Telecom Italia, Telia Company and TIM Brasil—are adopting VMware’s Telco Cloud platform to accelerate time to revenue, automate service lifecycle and simplify operations management. VMware also unveiled new capabilities across its Telco and Edge Cloud product portfolio, including innovations to its telco cloud core, edge and RAN offerings.
  • VMware acquired Nyansa, which enables VMware to deliver an end-to-end network visibility, monitoring and remediation solution within VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud that can proactively predict client problems, optimize application and network performance and better assure the behavior of critical IoT devices.
  • In the fourth quarter, VMware received further recognition from leading industry analysts:
    • VMware was positioned as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Unified Endpoint Management, Q4 2019, which evaluated 13 unified endpoint management (UEM) vendors. VMware’s intelligence-driven digital workspace platform, VMware Workspace ONE, was top ranked in the current offering and strategy categories. The platform also received the highest possible score in the product roadmap, roadmap execution, and partner ecosystem criteria, as well as in all of the report’s market presence criteria (i.e., customer count, Windows 10 customer count, devices under management, and revenue).1
    • VMware was positioned as a leader in three recent IDC MarketScape reports related to the End-User Computing (EUC) space.2

Recast Financial Statements and Addition of Subscription and SaaS Revenue Line item

 

On December 30, 2019, VMware completed its acquisition of Pivotal. As Pivotal was an entity under common control, pursuant to GAAP, financial statements for prior periods are required to be recast as if the entities were combined for all periods presented. Recast quarterly results on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis, consolidated statements of income and key cash flow metrics for fiscal year 2019 and fiscal year 2020 are included in this earnings press release.  All comparisons of fiscal year and fourth quarter 2020 financial metrics to prior periods in this press release are comparisons to the recast financial metrics for the respective prior period.

 

To assist investors in their understanding of the impact of combining Pivotal with VMware results in the recast financial statements on prior periods and to compare current results to the financial results originally reported for prior periods, VMware is including tables attached to this press release showing the impact of Pivotal adjustments on its previously reported (1) GAAP and non-GAAP net income for each fiscal quarter for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 and for fiscal years 2019 and 2018; (2) fiscal year 2019 balance sheet; and (3) GAAP cash flows from operating activities and free cash flows for each fiscal quarter for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 and for fiscal years 2019 and 2018.

 

Additionally, effective with the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020, VMware is presenting a new revenue line item in its earnings reports entitled “subscription and SaaS revenue.”  Accordingly, reported revenue consists of the following three components: license, subscription and SaaS, and services.  Previously, subscription and SaaS revenue was referred to as “hybrid cloud subscription and SaaS revenue” and was allocated between license and services revenue. In light of VMware’s recent acquisitions, management determined that revenue recognized from subscription and SaaS offerings will be presented separately. The new subscription and SaaS revenue line item includes revenue from VMware’s VCPP cloud offerings that are billed to customers on a consumption basis, revenue from Pivotal and other offerings that are billed on a subscription basis as well as revenue from SaaS offerings such as Workspace ONE and VMware Cloud on AWS. Revenue from prior periods has been reclassified to conform to the fourth quarter fiscal year 2020 presentation and is reflected in the recast quarterly financial statements for fiscal years 2019 and 2020 included in the tables accompanying this earnings press release.

 

The company will host a conference call today at 1:30 p.m. PT/ 4:30 p.m. ET to review financial results and business outlook. A live web broadcast of the event will be available on the VMware investor relations website at http://ir.vmware.com. Slides will accompany the web broadcast. The replay of the webcast and slides will be available on the website for two months. In addition, six quarters of historical data for unearned revenue will also be made available at http://ir.vmware.com in conjunction with the conference call.
