CommVault reports mixed financials for 2014

06 May 15

CommVault has released its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, and says while the results were mixed, the company has strong objectives moving forward.

N. Robert Hammer, Commvault chairman, president and CEO, says Commvault achieved record full year revenue and operating cash flows in fiscal 2015 despite significant foreign exchange headwinds. 

“For the full fiscal year, total revenues were up 6% on a constant currency basis, and operating cash flows were $123.8 million. 

“We continued to make significant progress on our key transformation initiatives. 

“The market response to our stand-alone solutions remains encouraging and our product strategy is being driven by our business unit structure which is providing much more comprehensive leadership to our product initiatives,” he says.

For the quarter, however, the financial results were mixed.

“On the positive side, we had strong sequential software revenue growth in the Americas demonstrating building momentum related to our Americas turnaround plan. 

“These positive sequential results in the Americas were offset by lower than forecasted results in both our EMEA and APAC regions, which were impacted by foreign currency headwinds," Hammer says.

"Looking forward, our objective is to deliver substantially improved software revenue growth rates in the second half of fiscal 2016. 

“We continue to make significant progress in our product, pricing and productivity related initiatives for us to achieve both this objective and also execute against our long-term strategy," he says.
