Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

Note 1: Basis of Presentation

Company Overview - We are a global software company that simplifies the development, deployment and management of business applications on-premise or in the cloud, on any platform or device, to any data source, with enhanced performance, minimal IT complexity and low total cost of ownership. Our comprehensive portfolio of products provides leading solutions for rapid application development, broad data integration and efficient data analysis. Our solutions are used across a variety of industries.

Our products are generally sold as perpetual licenses, but certain products and business activities also use term licensing models and our Progress Pacific platform offering uses a subscription based model. More than half of our worldwide license revenue is realized through relationships with indirect channel partners, principally application partners and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Application partners are independent software vendors (ISVs) that develop and market applications using our technology and resell our products in conjunction with sales of their own products that incorporate our technology. OEMs are companies that embed our products into their own software products or devices.

During fiscal years 2012 and 2013, we completed divestitures of the eleven product lines which were not considered core product lines of our business. The divestitures were part of our strategic plan announced during fiscal year 2012. After the closing of all these divestitures, we began to operate as one reportable segment. In addition, the revenues and direct expenses of the product lines divested are included in discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated statements of income, including prior period amounts which have been revised to reflect the presentation.

We operate in North America and Latin America (the Americas); Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia Pacific region, through local subsidiaries as well as independent distributors.

Basis of Presentation and Significant Accounting Policies - We prepared the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regarding interim financial reporting. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for complete financial statements and these unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2013.

We made no significant changes in the application of our significant accounting policies that were disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2013. We have prepared the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements on the same basis as the audited financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, and these financial statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results of the interim periods presented. The operating results for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full fiscal year.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements - In June 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-12, Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period (ASU 2014-12). ASU 2014-12 brings consistency to the accounting for share-based payment awards that require a specific performance target to be achieved in order for employees to become eligible to vest in the awards. This guidance is effective for all entities for reporting periods (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. In addition, all entities will have the option of applying the guidance either prospectively (i.e., only to awards granted or modified on or after the effective date of the ASU) or retrospectively. We are currently evaluating the effect that implementation of this update will have on our consolidated financial position and results of operations upon adoption.

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) (ASU 2014-09). ASU 2014-09 outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. This new guidance is effective for annual reporting periods (including interim reporting periods within those periods) beginning after December 15, 2016; early adoption is not permitted. Entities have the option of using either a full retrospective or a modified approach to adopt the guidance. This update could impact the timing and amounts of revenue recognized. We are currently evaluating the effect that implementation of this update will have on our consolidated financial position and results of operations upon adoption.

8



In July 2013, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2013-11, Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists (ASU 2013-11). ASU 2013-11 clarifies guidance and eliminates diversity in practice on the presentation of unrecognized tax benefits when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists at the reporting date. This new guidance is effective on a prospective basis for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. The adoption of ASU 2013-11 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
In March 2013, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2013-05, Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830): Parent’s Accounting for the Cumulative Translation Adjustment upon Derecognition of Certain Subsidiaries or Groups of Assets within a Foreign Entity or of an Investment in a Foreign Entity (ASU 2013-05). ASU 2013-05 provides guidance on releasing cumulative translation adjustments when a reporting entity (parent) ceases to have a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or a business within a foreign entity. ASU 2013-05 is effective on a prospective basis for fiscal years and interim reporting periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2013-05 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, we received favorable offers to purchase our auction rate securities (ARS). As a result of the favorable offers we received, we sold all of our remaining ARS for $26.2 million and received the proceeds during the quarter. The previously recorded unrealized losses associated with our ARS have been adjusted based on the sale prices and recorded as a realized loss of $2.6 million during the three months ended August 31, 2014 within interest income and other in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.

During prior periods in which we held ARS, we evaluated the risks related to the structure, collateral and liquidity of the investment and forecasted the probability of issuer default, auction failure and a successful auction at par or a redemption at par for each future auction period. The weighted average cash flow for each period was then discounted back to present value for each security. Based on this methodology, we determined that the fair value of our ARS investments was $24.8 million at November 30, 2013. The temporary impairment recorded in accumulated other comprehensive loss to reduce the value of our available-for-sale ARS investments was $4.0 million at November 30, 2013. As we determined that these investments lacked short-term liquidity as of November 30, 2013, they are classified as long-term investments on the condensed consolidated balance sheets at November 30, 2013.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2013, the exit bankruptcy plan for an issuer of one of our ARS, which was in default and on whose behalf the underlying bond insurer was making interest payments, was approved by a federal bankruptcy judge in federal court. The exit bankruptcy plan included a settlement provision with the holders of the ARS, which were given the option to receive 80% of the par value of their holdings, but renounce their claim with the bond issuer, or receive 65% of the par value of their holdings and retain their insurance rights. We accepted the 80% settlement offer and as a result we adjusted the fair value of this ARS to the amount of the settlement as of November 30, 2013. The previously recorded unrealized loss associated with this ARS has been recorded as a realized loss in fiscal year 2013 due to the settlement. As this investment no longer lacked short-term liquidity, it was classified as a short-term investment on our consolidated balance sheet at November 30, 2013. We received the settlement in December 2013.

Note 3: Derivative Instruments

We generally use forward contracts that are not designated as hedging instruments to hedge economically the impact of the variability in exchange rates on accounts receivable denominated in certain foreign currencies. We generally do not hedge the net assets of our international subsidiaries. All forward contracts are recorded at fair value in other current assets or other current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets at the end of each reporting period and expire within 90 days. In the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, realized and unrealized losses of $0.4 million and $1.5 million, respectively, from our forward contracts were recognized in foreign currency loss, net in the condensed consolidated statements of income. In the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, realized and unrealized gains of $1.3 million, and $0.8 million, respectively, from our forward contracts were recognized in foreign currency loss, net in the condensed consolidated statements of income. These losses were substantially offset by realized and unrealized gains on the offsetting positions.

When developing fair value estimates, we maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. When available, we use quoted market prices to measure fair value. The valuation technique used to measure fair value for our Level 1 and Level 2 assets is a market approach, using prices and other relevant information generated by market transactions involving identical or comparable assets. If market prices are not available, the fair value measurement is based on models that use primarily market based parameters including yield curves, volatilities, credit ratings and currency rates. In certain cases where market rate assumptions are not available, we are required to make judgments about assumptions market participants would use to estimate the fair value of a financial instrument.

The valuation technique used to measure fair value for our Level 3 assets as of November 30, 2013, which consisted of ARS, was primarily an income approach, where the expected weighted average future cash flows were discounted back to present value for each asset. The significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement of ARS were the probability of earning the maximum rate until maturity, the probability of principal return prior to maturity, the probability of default, the liquidity risk premium and the recovery rate in default. Generally, interrelationships were such that a change in the assumptions used for the probability of principal return prior to maturity was accompanied by a directionally opposite change in one or more the following assumptions: the probability of earning the maximum rate until maturity, the probability of default and the liquidity risk premium. The recovery rate in default was somewhat independent and based upon the ARS' specific underlying assets and published recovery rate studies.

We have also classified contingent consideration related to the Rollbase, Inc. (Rollbase) and Modulus LLC (Modulus) acquisitions, which occurred in the second quarter of fiscal years 2013 and 2014, respectively, within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy because the fair values are derived using significant unobservable inputs, which include discount rates and probability-weighted cash flows. We determined the fair value of our contingent consideration obligations based on a probability-weighted income approach derived from probability assessments of the attainment of certain milestones. We establish discount rates to be utilized in our valuation models based on the cost to borrow that would be required by a market participant for similar instruments. In determining the probability of attaining certain milestones, we utilize data regarding similar milestone events from our own experience. On a quarterly basis, we reassess the probability factors associated with the milestones for our contingent consideration obligations. Significant judgment is employed in determining the appropriateness of these key assumptions as of the acquisition date and for each subsequent period.

The key assumptions as of August 31, 2014 related to the contingent consideration for the acquisition of Rollbase used in the model are probabilities in excess of 95% that the milestones associated with the contingent consideration will be achieved and a discount rate of 4.8%. The key assumptions as of August 31, 2014 related to the contingent consideration for the acquisition of Modulus used in the model are probabilities in excess of 75% that the milestones associated with the contingent consideration will be achieved and a discount rate of 33.0%. A decrease in the probabilities of achievement could result in a decrease to the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liabilities. There were no changes to these assumptions during the third quarter of fiscal year 2014.

As a result of the Modulus acquisition in May 2014 (Note 7), we recorded $7.3 million of purchased technology and $0.2 million of the trade name as intangible assets during the nine months ended August 31, 2014. These intangibles have a weighted average useful life of 7 years.

In the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, amortization expense related to intangible assets was $1.0 million and $2.3 million, respectively. In the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, amortization expense related to intangible assets was $0.7 million and $1.4 million, respectively.

The addition to goodwill during fiscal year 2014 is related to the acquisition of Modulus in May 2014.

During the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, we completed our annual testing for impairment of goodwill and, based on those tests, concluded that no impairment of goodwill existed as of December 15, 2013. As of August 31, 2014, no triggering events have occurred that would indicate a potential impairment of goodwill exists.

Note 6: Divestitures

During fiscal years 2012 and 2013, we completed divestitures of the eleven product lines which were not considered core product lines of our business: Actional, Apama, Artix, DataXtend, FuseSource, ObjectStore, Orbacus, Orbix, Savvion, Shadow and Sonic. The FuseSource and Shadow product lines were divested in fiscal year 2012. The remaining product lines, excluding Apama, were divested in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The divestitures were part of our strategic plan announced during fiscal year 2012. The Apama product line was divested in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013.

Revenues and direct expenses of the divested product lines have been reclassified as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Specifically, the fiscal year 2013 income from discontinued operations now includes the revenues and direct expenses of the product lines which had not been divested prior to the start of fiscal year 2013.

Note 7: Business Combinations

Modulus Acquisition

On May 13, 2014, we acquired 100% of the membership interests in Modulus LLC (Modulus), a privately held platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provider based in Cincinnati, Ohio, for $15.0 million. The purchase consideration consisted of $12.5 million in cash paid and $2.5 million of contingent consideration, expected to be paid out over a two year period, if earned. The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated to be $1.5 million at the date of acquisition; as such, the fair value of the purchase consideration allocated to the assets acquired totaled $14.0 million. Modulus provides a PaaS for easily hosting, deploying, scaling and monitoring data-intensive, real-time applications using powerful, rapidly growing Node.js and MongoDB technologies. The purpose of the acquisition is to capitalize on the expected market growth of the core technologies that Modulus supports and drive new revenue through the Pacific platform. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination, and accordingly, the results of operations of Modulus are included in our operating results from the date of acquisition. We paid the purchase price in cash from available funds.

The purchase consideration includes contingent earn-out provisions payable by the Company based on the achievement of certain milestones. We determined the fair value of the contingent consideration obligations by calculating the probability-weighted earn-out payments based on the assessment of the likelihood that the milestones will be achieved. The probability-weighted earn-out payments were then discounted using a discount rate based on an internal rate of return analysis using the probability-weighted cash flows. During the quarter ended August 31, 2014, the change in the fair value of the contingent consideration payable was immaterial.
       
We recorded the excess of the purchase price over the identified tangible and intangible assets as goodwill. We believe that the investment value of the future enhancement of our product and solution offerings created as a result of this acquisition has principally contributed to a purchase price that resulted in the recognition of $6.4 million of goodwill. The goodwill is deductible for tax purposes; as such, our basis in the tax goodwill and other acquired intangible assets will be amortized over a 15 year period. The allocation of the purchase price was completed in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 upon the finalization of our valuation of identifiable intangible assets.

We incurred approximately $0.2 million of acquisition-related costs, which are included in acquisition-related expenses in our consolidated statement of operations for the nine months ended August 31, 2014. We have not disclosed the amount of revenues and earnings of Modulus since acquisition, nor pro forma financial information, as those amounts are not significant to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Rollbase Acquisition

On May 24, 2013, we acquired 100% of the equity interests in Rollbase, Inc. (Rollbase), a privately held software vendor based in Saratoga, California, for $9.9 million. The purchase consideration consisted of $9.5 million in cash paid and $0.4 million of contingent consideration, expected to be paid out over a two year period, if earned. The fair value of the contingent consideration was estimated to be $0.4 million at the date of acquisition. Rollbase provides application development software technology that allows the rapid design, development and deployment of on-demand business applications. The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination, and accordingly, the results of operations of Rollbase are included in our operating results from the date of acquisition. We paid the purchase price in cash from available funds.

The stock purchase agreement included contingent earn-out provisions requiring us to make payments to former Rollbase owners now employed by the Company. We concluded that the earn-out provisions for the individuals now employed by the Company, which total approximately $5.3 million, are compensation arrangements and we have been accruing the maximum payouts ratably over the two year performance period, as we believe it is probable that the criteria will be met. During the second quarter of fiscal year 2014, we paid the former Rollbase owners the contingent consideration related to milestones reached as of the one year anniversary of the acquisition closing date. We have incurred $0.3 million and $2.5 million of

expense related to the contingent earn-out provisions for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, respectively. This amount is recorded as acquisition-related expense in our consolidated statement of operations.
        
We recorded the excess of the purchase price over the identified tangible and intangible assets as goodwill. We believe that the investment value of the future enhancement of our product and solution offerings created as a result of this acquisition has principally contributed to a purchase price that resulted in the recognition of $4.8 million of goodwill, which is not deductible for tax purposes. The allocation of the purchase price was completed in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 upon the finalization of our valuation of identifiable intangible assets and acquired deferred tax liabilities.

We have not disclosed the amount of revenues and earnings of Rollbase since acquisition, nor pro forma financial information, as those amounts are not significant to our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Note 8: Line of Credit

Our credit facility provides for a revolving line of credit in the amount of $150.0 million, with a sublimit for the issuance of standby letters of credit in a face amount up to $25.0 million and swing line loans up to $20.0 million. The credit facility also permits us to increase the revolving line of credit by up to an additional $75.0 million subject to receiving further commitments from lenders and certain other conditions. As of August 31, 2014, there were no amounts outstanding under the revolving line and $0.7 million of letters of credit.

Note 9: Common Stock Repurchases

We repurchased and retired 2.3 million shares of our common stock for $52.6 million in the nine months ended August 31, 2014. The shares were repurchased as part of our Board of Directors authorized $100.0 million share repurchase program. In the nine months ended August 31, 2013, we repurchased 10.3 million shares of our common stock for $237.4 million as part of our Board of Directors previously authorized $360.0 million share repurchase program.

Note 10: Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation expense reflects the fair value of stock-based awards measured at the grant date and recognized over the relevant service period. We estimate the fair value of each stock-based award on the measurement date using the current market price of the stock or the Black-Scholes option valuation model. In addition, during the first quarter of fiscal year 2014, we granted performance-based restricted stock units that include a three-year market condition. In order to estimate the fair value of such awards, we used a Monte Carlo Simulation valuation model. The Black-Scholes and Monte Carlo Simulation valuation models incorporate assumptions as to stock price volatility, the expected life of options or awards, a risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. We recognize stock-based compensation expense related to options and restricted stock units on a straight-line basis over the service period of the award, which is generally 4 or 5 years for options and 3 years for restricted stock units. We recognize stock-based compensation expense related to performance stock units and our employee stock purchase plan using an accelerated attribution method.

Note 12: Restructuring Charges

2014 Restructuring

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2014, our management approved, committed to and initiated plans to make strategic changes to our organization to provide greater focus and agility in the delivery of next generation application development, deployment and integration solutions. Effective September 1, 2014, we began to operate as three distinct business units: OpenEdge, Application Development and Deployment, and Data Connectivity and Integration, each with dedicated sales, product management and product marketing functions. In connection with the new organizational structure, we no longer have a global head of sales, as well as certain other positions within the sales and administrative organizations. The organizational changes will not result in the closing of any of our facilities.

As part of the 2014 restructuring, for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, we incurred expenses of $1.5 million, which are related to employee costs, including severance, health benefits, and outplacement services, but excluding stock-based compensation. The expenses are recorded as restructuring expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of income. We do not expect to incur additional material costs with respect to the 2014 restructuring.

Cash disbursements for expenses incurred to date under the 2014 restructuring are expected to be made during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2014. As a result, the $1.5 million is included in other accrued liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet at August 31, 2014.

2013 Restructuring

During the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, our management approved, committed to and initiated plans to restructure and improve efficiencies in our operations as a result of the sale of the Apama product line and the divestitures completed during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012 and the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. We reduced our global workforce primarily within the administrative and sales organizations. This workforce reduction was conducted across all geographies and also resulted in the closing of certain facilities.

Restructuring expenses related to employee costs, including severance, health benefits, outplacement services and transition divestiture arrangements (but excluding stock-based compensation), and facilities costs, which include fees to terminate lease agreements and costs for unused space, net of sublease assumptions. Other costs include costs to terminate automobile leases of employees included in the workforce reduction, asset impairment charges for assets no longer deployed as part of cost reduction strategies, costs for unused software licenses as part of the workforce reduction and other costs directly associated with the restructuring actions taken.

As part of the 2013 restructuring, for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, we incurred minimal expenses. The expenses are recorded as restructuring expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of income. We do not expect to incur additional material costs with respect to the 2013 restructuring.

Cash disbursements for expenses incurred to date under the 2013 restructuring are expected to be made through fiscal year 2017. The short-term portion of the restructuring reserve of $0.2 million is included in other accrued liabilities and the long-term portion of $0.1 million is included in other noncurrent liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet at August 31, 2014.

2012 Restructuring

In the second quarter of fiscal year 2012, our management approved, committed to and initiated certain operational restructuring initiatives to reduce annual costs, including the simplification of our organizational structure and the consolidation of facilities. In addition, as part of the strategic plan announced during fiscal year 2012, we have divested the product lines not considered core to our business. Our restructuring actions include both our cost reduction efforts and qualifying costs associated with our divestitures.

As part of the 2012 restructuring, for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, we incurred minimal expenses. The expenses are recorded as restructuring expenses in the condensed consolidated statements of income. We do not expect to incur additional material costs with respect to the 2012 restructuring.

A summary of activity for the 2012 restructuring action and the accrual balance is as follows (in thousands):

Cash disbursements under the 2012 restructuring are expected to be made through fiscal year 2016. The short-term portion of the restructuring reserve of $0.3 million is included in other accrued liabilities and the long-term portion, which is minimal, is included in other noncurrent liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheet at August 31, 2014.

Note 13: Income Taxes

Our income tax provision for the nine months ended August 31, 2014 and 2013 reflects our estimates of the effective tax rates expected to be applicable for the full fiscal years, adjusted for any discrete events which are recorded in the period they occur. The estimates are reevaluated each quarter based on our estimated tax expense for the full fiscal year.

Our Federal income tax returns have been examined or are closed by statute for all years prior to fiscal year 2011, and we are no longer subject to audit for those periods. Our state income tax returns have been examined or are closed by statute for all years prior to fiscal year 2009, and we are no longer subject to audit for those periods.

Note 14: Earnings Per Share

We compute basic earnings per share using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. We compute diluted earnings per share using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the effect of outstanding dilutive stock options, restricted stock units and deferred stock units, using the treasury stock method. The following table sets forth the calculation of basic and diluted earnings per share from continuing operations on an interim basis (in thousands, except per share data):

We excluded stock awards representing approximately 351,000 shares and 383,000 shares of common stock from the calculation of diluted earnings per share in the three and nine months ended August 31, 2014, respectively, because these awards were anti-dilutive. In the three and nine months ended August 31, 2013, we excluded stock awards representing 455,000 shares and 875,000 shares of common stock, respectively, from the calculation of diluted earnings per share.

Note 15: Subsequent Events

Effective September 1, 2014, we began operating as three distinct business units: OpenEdge, Application Development and Deployment, and Data Connectivity and Integration, each with dedicated sales, product management and product marketing functions. As a result of these changes, we expect to adopt segment reporting for our three business units beginning in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014.

On October 1, 2014, we acquired 100% of the capital stock of BravePoint, Inc. (BravePoint) from Chesapeake Utilities Corporation in exchange for an aggregate sum of $12.0 million in cash. BravePoint is based in Norcross, Georgia and is a leading provider of consulting, training and application development services designed to increase customers' profitability and competitiveness through the use of technology. As a result of the timing of the close of the transaction, the initial accounting for the business combination was incomplete through the date our condensed consolidated financial statements were issued. In connection with the acquisition, we expect any resulting goodwill to be deductible for tax purposes. Results of operations for BravePoint will be included in our consolidated financial statements as part of the OpenEdge business unit from the date of acquisition.

Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 contains certain safe harbor provisions regarding forward-looking statements. This Form 10-Q, and other information provided by us or statements made by our directors, officers or employees from time to time, may contain “forward-looking” statements and information, which involve risks and uncertainties. Actual future results may differ materially. Statements indicating that we “expect,” “estimate,” “believe,” “are planning” or “plan to” are forward-looking, as are other statements concerning future financial results, product offerings or other events that have not yet occurred. There are various factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements, including but not limited to the following: market acceptance of Progress’s strategy and product development initiatives; pricing pressures and the competitive environment in the software industry and Platform-as-a-Service market; Progress's ability to successfully manage transitions to new business models and markets, including an increased emphasis on a cloud and subscription strategy; Progress's ability to make acquisitions and to realize the expected benefits and anticipated synergies from such acquisitions; the continuing uncertainty in the U.S. and international economies, which could result in fewer sales of Progress's products and may otherwise harm Progress's business; business and consumer use of the Internet and the continuing adoption of Cloud technologies; the receipt and shipment of new orders; Progress's ability to expand its relationships with channel partners and to manage the interaction of channel partners with its direct sales

force; the timely release of enhancements to Progress's products and customer acceptance of new products; the positioning of Progress's products in its existing and new markets; variations in the demand for professional services and technical support; Progress's ability to penetrate international markets and manage its international operations; changes in exchange rates; and those factors discussed in Part II, Item 1A (Risk Factors) in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, and in Part I, Item 1A (Risk Factors) in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2013. Although we have sought to identify the most significant risks to our business, we cannot predict whether, or to what extent, any of such risks may be realized. We also cannot assure you that we have identified all possible issues which we might face. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements that we make.

Use of Constant Currency

Revenue from our international operations has historically represented more than half of our total revenue. As a result, our revenue results have been impacted, and we expect will continue to be impacted, by fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. For example, if the local currencies of our foreign subsidiaries weaken, our consolidated results stated in U.S. dollars are negatively impacted.

As exchange rates are an important factor in understanding period to period comparisons, we believe the presentation of revenue growth rates on a constant currency basis enhances the understanding of our revenue results and evaluation of our performance in comparison to prior periods. The constant currency information presented is calculated by translating current period results using prior period weighted average foreign currency exchange rates. These results should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP).

Overview

We are a global software company that simplifies the development, deployment and management of business applications on-premise or in the cloud, on any platform or device, to any data source, with enhanced performance, minimal IT complexity and low total cost of ownership. In 2013, we introduced the Progress Pacific platform-as-a-service (PaaS) that is the foundation of a strategic plan (the "Plan") we announced in April 2012. In April 2012, we announced our intention to become a leading provider of next-generation application development and deployment capabilities in the cloud for the PaaS market by investing in our OpenEdge, DataDirect, and Corticon product lines and integrating components of those products into a single, cohesive offering.

During fiscal years 2012 and 2013, we completed divestitures of the eleven product lines which were not considered core product lines of our business: Actional, Apama, Artix, DataXtend, FuseSource, ObjectStore, Orbacus, Orbix, Savvion, Shadow and Sonic. The FuseSource and Shadow product lines were divested in fiscal year 2012. The remaining product lines, excluding Apama, were divested in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013. The divestitures were part of our strategic plan announced during fiscal year 2012. The aggregate purchase price for these product lines, excluding Apama, was approximately $130.0 million. The Apama product line was divested in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013 for a purchase price of $44.3 million. Our operating performance was adversely impacted by temporarily higher expense levels and restructuring costs as we transitioned away from the product lines we divested.

In furtherance of the Plan, we began to unify the product capabilities of our core product lines with the goal of refining and enhancing our next generation, feature-rich application development and deployment solution targeting the new market category of PaaS. To that end, during fiscal year 2013, we added new functionalities to our existing products. We also completed the acquisition of Rollbase, Inc. (Rollbase), a provider of application development software technology that allows the rapid design, development and deployment of on-demand business applications. In addition, in July 2013, we announced the release of Progress Pacific, which provides users with the freedom to choose the development environment tools, data sources, deployment environments and devices that best fit business and user needs. It is comprised of Rollbase and DataDirect Cloud, together with assets from our OpenEdge, DataDirect and Corticon products.

In fiscal year 2014, we have continued to invest in our existing product lines and also announced the release of Easyl, our latest product offering included in our Pacific platform, which is a data analysis tool that dramatically simplifies the process of accessing, blending, and reporting on organizational data. We also acquired Modulus LLC (Modulus), a PaaS provider offering a platform for easily hosting, deploying, scaling and monitoring data-intensive, real-time applications using powerful, rapidly growing Node.js and MongoDB technologies. We plan to capitalize on the expected market growth of the core technologies that Modulus supports and drive new revenue through the Pacific platform.

As a result of our renewed focus on our core products, the enhancements to our existing products and improvement in our cost

20


structure, we experienced improved financial performance during fiscal year 2013. However, we are still in the early stages of our transition to becoming a leading vendor in the cloud-based PaaS market. As a result, we anticipate continued reinvestment in our products will be necessary and sustainable increases in revenue may not be foreseeable in the near term. Overall, our investments to improve our product lines require time to impact performance.

In addition, our new business focus and new strategy has required us to restructure our organization and the way we go to market, how we implement product roadmaps and how we operate and report our financial results, all of which caused additional disruption and could cause further disruption in the future as we implement our new go to market plans. Our cloud strategy will require continued investment in product development and cloud operations as well as a change in the way we price and deliver our products.

Effective September 1, 2014, we will operate as three distinct business units: OpenEdge, Application Development and Deployment, and Data Connectivity and Integration, each with dedicated sales, product management and product marketing functions. These changes are designed to enable the business to better deliver against the fast paced requirements in the on-premise and cloud application development and data connectivity and integration markets. As a result of these changes, we expect to adopt segment reporting for our three business units beginning in the fourth fiscal quarter of 2014.

In January 2014, our Board of Directors authorized a new $100.0 million share repurchase program. Under this authorization, we have repurchased 2.3 million shares for $52.6 million during the first nine months of fiscal year 2014.

We derive a significant portion of our revenue from international operations, which are primarily conducted in foreign currencies. As a result, changes in the value of these foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar have significantly impacted our results of operations and may impact our future results of operations.

We have evaluated, and expect to continue to evaluate, possible acquisitions and other strategic transactions designed to expand our business and/or add complementary products and technologies to our existing product sets. As a result, our expected uses of cash could change, our cash position could be reduced and we may incur additional debt obligations to the extent we complete additional acquisitions.

We believe that existing cash balances, together with funds generated from operations and amounts available under our revolving credit line will be sufficient to finance our operations and meet our foreseeable cash requirements through at least the next twelve months.

Total revenue increased $1.7 million, or 2%, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same quarter last year. Revenue would have remained flat if exchange rates had been constant in fiscal year 2014 as compared to exchange rates in fiscal year 2013. In addition, total revenue decreased $8.4 million, or 4% on a constant currency basis and 3% using actual exchange rates, in the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same period last year. The decrease was primarily a result of a decrease in license revenue as further described below. Changes in prices from fiscal year 2013 to 2014 did not have a significant impact on our revenue.

License revenue increased $0.7 million, or 3%, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same quarter last year, and decreased $8.3 million, or 10%, in the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same period last year. The increase in license revenue in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same quarter last year was primarily in the North America and Latin America regions, mainly as a result of higher revenues related to sales of our OpenEdge products. The decrease in license revenue in the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same period last year was primarily in the North America and EMEA regions, mainly as a result of lower revenues related to our DataDirect product, primarily to direct end users. The decrease in DataDirect sales was primarily due to weakness in our pipeline from earlier in the year.

Total revenue generated in North America during the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 increased $1.1 million, or 3%, as compared to the same quarter last year, and represented 45% of total revenue in both the third quarter of fiscal years 2014 and 2013. Total revenue generated in markets outside North America increased $0.6 million, an increase of 1% using actual exchange rates, and decreased 2% on a constant currency basis, in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same quarter last year, and represented 55% of total revenue in both the third quarter of fiscal years 2014 and 2013. If exchange rates had remained constant in the third quarter of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the exchange rates in effect in the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, total revenue generated in markets outside North America would have represented 54% of total revenue.

Total revenue generated in North America during the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 decreased $4.4 million , or 4% , as compared to the same period last year, and represented 46% of total revenue in the first nine months of both fiscal years 2014 and 2013. Total revenue generated in markets outside North America decreased $4.0 million, or 4% on a constant currency basis and 3% using actual exchange rates, in the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the same period last year, and represented 54% of total revenue in both the first nine months of fiscal 2014 and 2013. If exchange rates had remained constant in the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 as compared to the exchange rates in effect in the first nine months of fiscal year 2013, total revenue generated in markets outside North America would have remained at 54% of total revenue.

In the first nine months of fiscal year 2014, Latin America and Asia Pacific were hurt by weaker local currencies.
