Selectica Reports Fourth-Quarter and Year-End Financial Results for Fiscal 2012
Company transitions its financial reporting to align with its new cloud-based business model

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 3, 2012 — Selectica, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTC), provider of software that accelerates sales cycles and streamlines contract processes, today announced financial results for its fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012 ended March 31, 2012.

“We’re entering year two of our three-year plan to transform Selectica into a software-as-a-service (SaaS) business, and I’m pleased to say that we’re on track,” said Jason Stern, Chief Executive Officer of Selectica. “Beginning with the release of our fiscal fourth quarter earnings, we have transitioned our external reporting to more clearly represent our shift to a cloud-based business model. Although this transition has resulted in what we expect to be a short-term decrease in revenue and margins, we are now seeing strong momentum in some of the key performance indicators of cloud-based businesses, including recurring revenue, deferred revenue, and billings.”

Continued Stern, “After successfully stabilizing the business and controlling cash flow in the prior fiscal year, this year we began focusing on customer and revenue growth and began increasing investment in targeted areas to meet the growing demand for our products. These investments began to yield results in fiscal 2012, as evidenced by a 13% year-over-year increase in recurring revenue, a 13% increase in year-over-year billings, and a 56% increase in year-over-year total deferred revenue.”

Financial highlights
Beginning with its fourth-quarter and year-end results for FY2012, Selectica has made changes to its financial reporting structure that are more clearly aligned to its previously announced transition from a provider of perpetual software licenses to a provider of subscription-based (or cloud-based) software services. Instead of reporting revenues and cost of revenues from licenses and services, the company will now report recurring revenues and non-recurring revenues, as well as cost of recurring revenues and cost of non-recurring revenues. Recurring revenues include subscription license sales, maintenance revenues from previously sold perpetual licenses, and hosting revenues. Non-recurring revenues include any perpetual license sales and revenues from professional services for system implementations, enhancements, and training.

Selectica delivered the following fourth-quarter and year-end financial results for FY2012:

Recurring revenue: Selectica grew recurring revenue by 3% quarter-over-quarter, from $2.2 million in Q3 FY2012 to $2.3 million in Q4 FY2012. Recurring revenue for all of FY2012 rose from $7.9 million to $8.9 million, a year-over-year increase of 13%. Sources of recurring revenue included subscriptions, maintenance, and hosting.

Billings: Billings for Q4 FY2012 were $5.4 million, a 21% increase over Q3 FY2012. Annual billings grew from $14.3 million in fiscal 2011 to $16.2 million in fiscal 2012, representing a 13% year-over-year increase. The company defines billings, a non-GAAP financial measure, as revenue recognized during the period plus the change in deferred revenue from the beginning to the end of the period.  Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to GAAP.

Deferred revenue: In Q4 FY2012, the company increased deferred revenue from $4.6 million to $6.7 million, a quarter-over-quarter increase of 46%. In addition, for fiscal 2012 the company increased deferred revenue from $4.3 million to $6.7 million, a year-over-year increase of 56%.

Business highlights
Selectica achieved great product momentum in fiscal 2012, with its increased R&D investment bearing fruit in the form of new and differentiated product offerings. Among the other steps the company took in its ongoing shift to a cloud-based business model was the strengthening of its management team. Business highlights from FY2012 include:

Introduction of Selectica Guided Selling: In the fourth quarter of FY2012, the company introduced Selectica Guided Selling, software that makes the company’s patented sales configuration and rule modeling technology available as a cloud-based service. Selectica Guided Selling enables the salespeople and channel partners of growing, mid-tier companies to configure and price deals that move more efficiently through the pipeline and close more quickly.

Release of Selectica CLM 5: In FY2012, the company introduced a major new release of its flagship contract management product, Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management 5. It then rolled out three follow-on releases, amplifying functionality in areas such as mobile, authoring, reporting, and e-signature.
Global settlement with Versata Enterprises: In FY2012, Selectica entered into a comprehensive settlement agreement with Versata Enterprises to close out all prior claims between the two companies. The agreement included a mutual cross license of patents, a mutual release of claims against the other, and a mutual covenant not to sue, restricting future claims.

Recognition by Forrester Research as leader in sell-side contract management: Also in FY2012, Forrester Research recognized Selectica as “a perfect fit for those companies focused on the sell-side, seeking a subscription model, and/or running salesforce.com” in its product evaluation report, The Forrester Wave™: Contract Life-Cycle Management, Q2 2011.

Growth of leadership team: As part of its ongoing transition to being a cloud-based solutions provider, Selectica strengthened its leadership team in FY2012, adding professionals who have demonstrated success in developing, delivering, marketing, and selling cloud software to growing, mid-tier organizations and who have the experience and skills to help the company achieve its growth objectives.

Additional results
Total revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were $3.2 million compared to $3.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and $3.7 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. For the full year fiscal 2012, Selectica reported revenue of $13.8 million, compared to $14.5 million for the full year fiscal 2011.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was $2.2 million, or $(0.78) per share, compared to a net loss of $1.4 million, or $(0.52) per share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2012 and net loss of $353,000, or $(0.12) per share, in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. Net loss for the full year fiscal 2012 was $6.3 million, or $(2.25) per share, compared to a net loss of $1.5 million, or $(0.53) per share for the full year fiscal 2011.
