VMware Reports Record Q2 Earnings!: 3rd consecutive record quarter!

VMware Summary Q2 2011 VMware reported record total revenues, operating income, net income, and earnings per share for Q2 2011. This is the 3rd consecutive quarter all 4 measurements have reached new record highs. Financial position continues liquid with strong capital. The only negative on VMware is the historically low return on assets, although much improved in recent quarters, and is now an improved 8.28%. A $56M gain on the sale of investment in Terremark Worldwide Inc. boosted net income and earnings per share. The gain was included in other income and did not affect operating income. However, even without this gain, VMware had record operating results.

VMware Income Statement Q2 2011 VMware reported record total revenues of $921.21M, record net income of $220.16M, and record earnings per share of $0.51. From the prior quarter Q1 2011, total revenues were up +9%, net income up +75%, and earnings per share up +76%. From the prior year Q2 2010, these were up an impressive +37%, +195%, and +183%, respectively. Gross, operating, and net margins were improved at 83.45%, 20.29%, and 23.90%, respectively. Cash flow from operations of $1.08 per share was just below the prior Q1 2011 record of $1.11.

VMware Balance Sheet Q2 2011 Total assets increased a strong +7% QoQ to a record $7.54B. The capital to assets ratio (total stockholders' equity divided by total assets) slightly increased to 57.02%. The current ratio (current assets divided by total assets) decreased to 61.33% but continues liquid. VMware is liquid with strong capital. Total deferred revenue, current and noncurrent, increased +5% and +$99.7M to $2.08B.


VMware Performance by the Quarters (Charts)

VMware Earnings Per Share and Cash Flow per Share (Chart) Below  is a chart of quarterly earnings per share and cash flow from operations per share. Current Earnings per Share of $0.51 is an all-time high and have improved for 4 consecutive quarters. Current Cash Flow per Share of $1.08 decreased to just below the prior Q1 2011 all-time high of $1.11..


VMware Total Revenues, Operating Income, and Net Income (Chart) Below is a chart of quarterly total revenues, operating income, and net income. Current Total Revenues are at 7th consecutive quarterly record high of $921.21M. Current Operating Income is at a 3rd consecutive quarterly record high of $186.89M. Current Net Income is at a 3rd consecutive quarterly record high of $220.26M. VMware realized a gain on the sale of its investment in Terremark Worldwide, Inc. of $56M, which was included in Other Income and therefore inflated Net Income over and above normal operations. Operating Income was not affected. Net Income would have been $164.16M not including the sale and without taking into account income tax effect, but still would have been a quarterly record high.


VMware Gross Margin, Operating Margin, and Net Margin (Chart) Below is a chart of quarterly gross margin, operating margin, and net margin. Current Gross Margin of 83.45% is a 9-quarter high and has been stable in the 80%-84% range since the beginning of the chart, Q1 2007. Current Operating Margin of 20.29% is outstanding and an 11-quarter high. Current Net Margin of 23.90% includes the $56M gain on sale of investment in Terremark Worldwide, Inc. and is an all-time high.


VMware Return on Assets (Chart) Below is a chart of annual return on average assets per quarter. The total net income for the most recent 4 quarters is divided into average assets for the most recent 4 quarters to obtain a rolling annualized ROA, an annualized return on average assets for the 12 months (4 quarters) ended. The ROA peaked in March 2009 at 9.12%, dipped to less than half the peak, and has yet to fully recover. However, the ROA has improved for 6 consecutive quarters to the current Return on Assets of 8.28%, which is a 9-quarter high. As noted in charts above, the $56M gain on sale of investment in Terremark Worldwide, Inc. has inflated Net Income, but not Operating Income. This also inflates ROA to some extent. This is the only real negative about VMware: a low ROA for a technology sector company. For a leading-edge technology company, a minimum 10% ROA should be expected and even 20% is a reasonable expectation.


VMware Growth Rates (Chart) Below is a chart of the quarterly (QoQ, Q/Q, quarterly change) growth rates for revenues and earnings per share. Total Revenues have increased for 8 consecutive quarters, ranging from the current +0.96% to +24.19% in Q4 December 2009. Earnings per Share have increased 4 consecutive quarters and the current +3.57% to +75.86%. VMware has maintained an impressive uptrend.
