"We are continuing to see impressive growth in our software business, including closing several significant deals this quarter with Fortune 500 customers. Our expanding product portfolio has enabled us to serve larger enterprises, where customers appreciate both the breadth of our product line and our commitment to open standards," said Guy Gecht, CEO of EFI. "Despite a challenging quarter, we are pleased that we achieved strong cash flow from operations and delivered our sixteenth consecutive quarter of gross margin improvements."
The Company currently anticipates Q1 2005 revenues to be even with Q4 2004 levels.
The Company expects pro forma earnings per share of $0.06 and a GAAP loss per share of $0.02. Both the pro forma and GAAP EPS estimates exclude the 9.1 million shares related to the company's contingently convertible debt. The inclusion of these shares and the add-back to pre-tax income of $1.3 million related to interest and amortization of bond issuance expenses would be accretive to earnings, and as such are not to be included in the EPS calculation.
The Company expects to recognize a charge of approximately $2.5 million related to a previously announced headcount reduction action taken early in the first quarter.
The Company is currently estimating its tax provision at 25% for pro forma results and 23% for GAAP results.
