Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2008 Financial Results

Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO) today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and fiscal year ended October 31, 2008.

Net revenue for the fourth quarter was $323.4 million, compared to $292.6 million for the same period of fiscal 2007. Fourth quarter sales were led by Midnight Club: Los Angeles, NBA 2K9, Grand Theft Auto IV and Carnival Games titles. Distribution revenue rose year over year, as current generation hardware sales were fueled by the strength of new frontline titles, along with robust demand for Wii software.

Net loss for the fourth quarter was $15.0 million or $0.20 per share, compared to a net loss of $7.1 million or $0.10 per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007.

The fourth quarter 2008 results include $9.3 million in stock-based compensation expense ($0.12 per share); $5.6 million in professional fees and expenses related to unusual legal matters ($0.07 per share); and $1.6 million in business reorganization costs ($0.02 per share). Results for the fourth quarter of 2007 included $4.8 million in stock-based compensation expense ($0.06 per share); $4.5 million in business reorganization costs ($0.06 per share); and $1.5 million in professional fees and expenses related to unusual legal matters ($0.02 per share).

Non-GAAP net income was $1.6 million or $0.02 per share in the fourth quarter of 2008, compared to $3.4 million or $0.05 per share in the fourth quarter of 2007. (Please refer to Non-GAAP Financial Measures and reconciliation tables included later in this release for additional information and details on Non-GAAP items.)

Fiscal Year 2008 Results

Net revenues were a record $1,537.5 million for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2008, compared to $981.8 million in fiscal 2007. Net income for fiscal 2008 was a record $97.1 million or $1.28 per share, compared to a net loss of $138.4 million or $1.93 per share in fiscal 2007.

Fiscal 2008 results include $40.4 million in stock-based compensation expense ($0.53 per share); $16.2 million in professional fees and expenses related to unusual legal matters ($0.21 per share); and $4.5 million in business reorganization costs ($0.06 per share). Results for fiscal 2007 included $17.3 million in stock-based compensation expense ($0.24 per share); $23.6 million in business reorganization costs ($0.32 per share); and $16.7 million in professional fees and expenses related to unusual legal matters ($0.23 per share).

Non-GAAP net income was a record $158.2 million or $2.08 per share in fiscal 2008, versus a net loss of $81.0 million or $1.13 per share in the comparable period of 2007. (Please refer to Non-GAAP Financial Measures and reconciliation tables included later in this release for additional information and details on Non-GAAP items.)

Business Highlights

Among the significant recent business developments, Take-Two noted the following:

  • The Company entered into new long-term agreements with Rockstar Games’ senior creative talent which extend to January 31, 2012.
  • Grand Theft Auto IV won Game of the Year and Best Action Adventure Game at the 2008 Spike TV Video Game Awards on December 14.
  • 2K Play’s wholly owned Carnival Games™ franchise, including Carnival Games for Nintendo’s Wii™ and DS™, and Carnival Games MiniGolf for Wii, has shipped over three million units worldwide.
  • The Company entered into an outsourcing agreement with Ditan Distribution for the pick, pack, ship and warehousing functions for Take-Two's U.S. publishing and distribution businesses previously handled by Take-Two's Jack of All Games subsidiary.

“Take-Two’s record results for the 2008 fiscal year reflect the fundamental strength of our business model,” said Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two. “Our performance has benefited from the strategies we’ve implemented during the past 18 months to unlock the potential of our creative talent, sharpen our focus on the core business, and take costs out of our operations. We’ve also signed new agreements with the senior members of the Rockstar Games label, a team that has produced some of the industry’s most extraordinary hits. These actions were taken in the interest of creating long-term shareholder value, and we believe they have also better positioned the Company to weather an increasingly challenging economic climate.”

Ben Feder, Chief Executive Officer of Take-Two, commented, “While our initial guidance provided today is a prudent response to the difficult current and possible future business conditions, we continue to maintain our strategy of developing a select portfolio of AAA titles. We believe one of the keys to long-term success in our industry is to offer truly outstanding products and a great entertainment experience. We’re excited about our 2009 pipeline, which will include the introduction of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars on the Nintendo DS, episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV on the Xbox 360 and downloadable content for Midnight Club: Los Angeles, as well as new offerings from such powerful franchises as BioShock, Mafia and the 2K Sports roster. We’ll also continue to invest in initiatives to achieve scale and create new revenue opportunities, while running a disciplined and cost-effective operation.”

Financial Guidance

The Company is providing initial guidance for the first quarter ending January 31, 2009, and for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2009 as follows:

Revenue*Non-GAAP EPS (a)(b)
First quarter ending

1/31/2009

$175 to $225 $(0.70) to $(0.85)
Fiscal year ending

10/31/2009

$1,100 to $1,250 $0.00 to $0.20

* Dollars in millions

(a) The Company’s non-GAAP EPS estimates for the first quarter ending January 31, 2009 and fiscal year ending October 31, 2009 exclude approximately $0.14 and $0.52 per share, respectively, of stock-based compensation expense; and approximately $0.01 and $0.05 per share, respectively, of expenses related to unusual legal matters. The Company's stock-based compensation expense for the first quarter and fiscal 2009 reflects the cost of approximately 2 million stock options and 1.5 million shares issued to ZelnickMedia that are subject to variable accounting. Actual expense to be recorded in connection with these options and shares is dependent upon several factors, including future changes in Take-Two's stock price.
(b) Q1 and fiscal year 2009 EPS estimates reflect tax expense primarily due to international operations.

Key assumptions and dependencies underlying the Company’s guidance include continued consumer acceptance of the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo; the ability to develop and publish products that capture market share for these current generation systems while continuing to leverage opportunities on certain prior generation platforms; as well as the timely delivery of titles.

Conference Call

Take-Two will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time to review these results and discuss other topics. The call can be accessed by dialing (877) 407-0984 or (201) 689-8577. A live listen-only webcast of the call will be available by visiting http://ir.take2games.com and a replay will be available following the call at the same location.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company uses non-GAAP measures of financial performance that exclude certain non-recurring or non-cash items. Non-GAAP gross profit, income (loss) from operations, net income (loss) and earnings (loss) per share are measures that exclude certain non-recurring or non-cash items and should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP. They are not intended to be considered in isolation from, as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. These non-GAAP financial measures may be different from similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The non-GAAP measures exclude the following items from the Company’s statements of operations:

  • Business reorganization, restructuring and related expenses
  • Stock-based compensation
  • Professional fees and expenses associated with unusual legal and other matters, including the Company’s recently completed strategic review process
  • Income tax effects of the items listed above

In addition, the Company may consider whether other significant non-recurring items that arise in the future should also be excluded from the non-GAAP financial measures it uses.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken into consideration with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, are important in gaining an understanding of the Company’s ongoing business. These non-GAAP financial measures also provide for comparative results from period to period. Therefore, the Company believes it is appropriate to exclude certain items as follows:

Business reorganization, restructuring and related expenses

In March 2007, the Company’s stockholders elected a new slate of members to Take-Two’s Board of Directors, who immediately removed the Company’s former President and Chief Executive Officer. Subsequently, the Company’s former Chief Financial Officer resigned. As a result of these actions and the implementation of a business reorganization plan, the Company incurred significant costs in the fiscal years ended October 31, 2007 and October 31, 2008 to reduce headcount, relocate employees and consolidate sales and operational functions. These costs were related to severance, asset write-offs and associated professional fees. As of October 31, 2008, the Company had substantially concluded the reorganization plan.

The Company does not engage in reorganization activities on a regular basis and therefore believes it is appropriate to exclude business reorganization expenses from its non-GAAP financial measures.

Stock-based compensation

The Company does not consider stock-based compensation charges when evaluating business performance and management does not contemplate stock-based compensation expense in its short and long-term operating plans. The Company places greater emphasis on stockholder dilution than accounting charges when assessing the impact of stock-based equity awards.

Professional fees and expenses associated with unusual legal and other matters, including the Company’s recently concluded strategic review process

The Company incurred significant legal, consulting and investment banking expenses in the fiscal year ended October 31, 2008 related to the tender offer by Electronic Arts Inc. to acquire all of the Company’s outstanding shares, which was launched in March 2008 and expired in August 2008, and the Company’s related strategic review process which was completed in October 2008. Additionally, the Company has realized significant legal and other professional fees associated with both the investigation of its historical stock option granting process and the Company’s responses to related governmental inquiries and civil lawsuits. One of management’s primary objectives is to bring conclusion to its outstanding legal matters. The Company continues to incur expenses for professional fees and has accrued for legal settlements that are outside its ordinary course of business. As a result, the Company has excluded such expenses from its non-GAAP financial measures.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA

Earnings (loss) before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”) is a financial measure not calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Management uses EBITDA adjusted for business reorganization and related expenses (“Adjusted EBITDA”), among other measures, in evaluating the performance of the Company’s business units. Adjusted EBITDA is also a significant component of the Company’s incentive compensation plans. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, net income/(loss) prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to current year presentation.
