AUSTIN, Texas - April 30, 2019 - National Instruments (Nasdaq: NATI) today announced Q1 2019 revenue of $311 million, flat year over year. Timing and mix of orders resulted in a $10 million increase in backlog during the quarter.

In Q1 2019, the value of the company’s orders over $20,000 was up 6 percent year over year as the company saw continued growth in system level business; orders under $20,000 were down 6 percent year over year in line with the weakening global PMI; and total orders were up 1 percent year over year. Foreign exchange rate changes reduced revenue by $6 million year over year.

GAAP net income for Q1 was $23 million, with fully diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.17, and non-GAAP net income was $40 million, with non-GAAP fully diluted EPS of $0.30 which was at the midpoint of the company’s guidance. EBITDA, or Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization, was $42 million for Q1.

In Q1, GAAP gross margin was 76 percent and non-GAAP gross margin was 78 percent. Total Q1 GAAP operating expenses were $212 million, up 1 percent year over year. Total Q1 non-GAAP operating expenses were down 3 percent year over year at $200 million. GAAP operating margin was 8 percent in Q1, with GAAP operating income of $23 million. Non-GAAP operating margin was 14 percent in Q1, with non-GAAP operating income of $44 million.

“I am proud of the team’s execution in the first quarter, despite the weakened industrial economy, especially in Europe. We delivered record Non-GAAP net income for a first quarter, up 21 percent year-over-year,” said Alex Davern, NI CEO. “We remain focused on our long-term strategy and we believe we are well positioned to deliver record non-GAAP net income in 2019.”

Karen Rapp, NI CFO, said, “I am pleased with our earnings performance in Q1. With NI’s culture of operational efficiency, we were able to deliver a 21 percent year over year increase in non-GAAP net income on flat revenue. We believe our strong gross margins remain a testament to the value of our brand and the benefits our platform provides to our customers. In Q1, we returned almost $80 million to our shareholders through dividends and stock repurchases. We remain focused on key industries where we believe our platform is best suited to take advantage of major technology disruptions.”

Geographic revenue in U.S. dollar terms for Q1 2019 compared with Q1 2018 was up 2 percent in the Americas, up 3 percent in APAC and down 6 percent in EMEIA. Excluding the impact of foreign currency exchange, revenue was up 3 percent in the Americas, up 6 percent in APAC and down 3 percent in EMEIA. Historical revenue from these three regions can be found on NI’s investor website at ni.com/nati.

As of March 31, 2019, NI had $480 million in cash and short-term investments. During Q1, NI paid $33 million in dividends. The NI Board of Directors approved a dividend of $0.25 per share payable on June 3, 2019, to stockholders of record on May 13, 2019. During Q1 2019, NI used $46 million to repurchase 1.035 million shares of the company’s outstanding common stock.

The company’s non-GAAP results exclude, as applicable, the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, acquisition-related transaction costs, taxes levied on the transfer of acquired intellectual property, foreign exchange loss on acquisitions, restructuring charges, tax reform charges, and capitalization and amortization of internally developed software costs. Reconciliations of the company’s GAAP and non-GAAP results are included as part of this news release.

Guidance
NI currently expects Q2 revenue to be in the range of $326 million to $356 million. The company currently expects that GAAP fully diluted EPS will be in the range of $0.16 to $0.30 for Q2, with non-GAAP fully diluted EPS expected to be in the range of $0.28 to $0.42. For 2019, NI estimates its non-GAAP effective tax rate to be approximately 17 to 18 percent.

Non-GAAP Presentation
In addition to disclosing results determined in accordance with GAAP, NI discloses certain non-GAAP operating results and non-GAAP information that exclude certain charges. In this news release, the company has presented its gross profit, gross margin, operating expenses, operating income, operating margin, income before income taxes, provision for income taxes, net income and basic and fully diluted EPS for the three-month periods ending March 31, 2019 and 2018, on a GAAP and non-GAAP basis. NI is also providing guidance on its non-GAAP fully diluted EPS and expected effective tax rate. The company is not able to provide guidance on its GAAP tax rate or a related reconciliation without unreasonable efforts since its future GAAP tax rate depends on its future stock price and related information that is not currently available.

In the quarter ended June 30, 2018, NI began moving toward more frequent releases for many of its software products. Specifically, for many of its software development projects, NI started applying agile development methodologies, which are characterized by a more dynamic development process with more frequent and iterative revisions to a product release’s features and functions as the software is being developed. Due to the shorter development cycle and focus on rapid production associated with agile development, NI expects that for a significant majority of its software development projects the costs incurred subsequent to the achievement of technological feasibility will be immaterial in future periods and it expects to record significantly less capitalized software development costs than recorded under its historical software development approaches. NI also expects amortization of previously capitalized software development costs to steadily decline as previously capitalized software development costs become fully amortized over the next four years. As a result, beginning with its non-GAAP metrics for the three months ended June 30, 2018, NI has been excluding the net effects of capitalization and amortization of software development costs from its non-GAAP operating results, along with its previously excluded non-GAAP items, and providing a reconciliation of such non-GAAP results to its GAAP results. NI believes these changes are useful to investors as they provide greater comparability between its R&D spend in future periods. NI also makes available on its website its historical non-GAAP results, excluding the effects of software capitalization and amortization together with other applicable non-GAAP adjustments, for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2005 through Dec. 31, 2018.

When presenting non-GAAP information, the company includes a reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to the GAAP results. Management believes that including the non-GAAP results assists investors in assessing the company’s operational performance and its performance relative to its competitors. The company presents these non-GAAP results as a complement to results provided in accordance with GAAP, and these results should not be regarded as a substitute for GAAP. Management uses these non-GAAP measures to manage and assess the profitability and performance of its business and does not consider stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, acquisition-related transaction costs, taxes levied on the transfer of acquired intellectual property, foreign exchange loss on acquisitions, restructuring charges, tax reform charges, and capitalization and amortization of internally developed software costs in managing its operations. Specifically, management uses non-GAAP measures to plan and forecast future periods; to establish operational goals; to compare with its business plan and individual operating budgets; to measure management performance for the purposes of executive compensation, including payments to be made under bonus plans; to assist the public in measuring the company’s performance relative to the company’s long-term public performance goals; to allocate resources; and, relative to the company’s historical financial performance, to enable comparability between periods. Management also considers such non-GAAP results to be an important supplemental measure of its performance.

This news release discloses the company’s EBITDA for the three-month periods ending March 31, 2019 and 2018. The company believes that including the EBITDA results assists investors in assessing the company’s operational performance relative to its competitors. A reconciliation of EBITDA to GAAP net income is included with this news release. This news release also discloses the company's free cash flow (which the company defines as cash flow from operating activities minus capital expenditures) for the twelve-month periods ended March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018. The company believes that including its free cash flow assists investors in assessing the company's operational performance. A reconciliation of free cash flow to cash flow from operating activities is included with this news release.
