Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal year 2013 second quarter ended August 31, 2012.

Total revenue for the quarter was $322.6 million, an increase of 15% in U.S. dollars from the year ago quarter, or 20% measured in constant currency, as detailed in the tables below. Subscription revenue for the quarter was $278.8 million, up 17% in U.S. dollars year-over-year, or 22% measured in constant currency, as detailed in the tables below.

“Our double-digit growth was driven by demand for Red Hat’s open source technologies that are key to creating innovation, scale and flexibility in our customers’ data centers and their businesses,” stated Jim Whitehurst, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Hat.

“At Red Hat, we firmly believe in the strength of community-powered innovation. In early September, we were pleased to be recognized by Forbes, Inc. on its list of the world’s Most Innovative Companies. We are also proud that our customers who have built mission-critical systems on Red Hat technologies are also reflected on the Forbes list of innovative companies.”

GAAP operating income for the second quarter was $50.0 million, down 5% year-over-year. GAAP operating margin was 15.5%. After adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP operating income for the second quarter was $79.2 million, up 4% year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating margin was 24.6%.

Net income for the quarter was $35.0 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared with $40.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. After adjusting for stock compensation and amortization expenses, as detailed in the tables below, non-GAAP net income for the quarter was $54.9 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, as compared to $56.5 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, in the year ago quarter. The year ago quarter would have been $0.28 per diluted share excluding a discrete tax benefit of $2.1 million, or approximately $0.01 per share.

Operating cash flow was $103.9 million for the second quarter, as compared to $77.1 million in the year ago quarter. At quarter end, the company’s total deferred revenue balance was $944.4 million, an increase of 16% on a year-over-year basis. Total cash, cash equivalents and investments as of August 31, 2012 was $1.36 billion.

“On a constant currency basis, subscription revenue grew 22% year-over-year while total revenue grew 20%. Our business model and offerings continue to appeal to customers despite the global economic malaise,” stated Charlie Peters, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Red Hat.

“This quarter marked a significant ramp-up in investments in our nascent storage business, with the launch in late June of Red Hat Storage Server 2.0. Furthermore, we announced two small technology acquisitions in the middleware space to further round out our offerings, which decreased the quarter’s EPS by approximately $0.01 per share due to one-time closing costs.”
