Guy Bernstein, Chief Executive Officer of Magic Software Enterprises, said: “Magic’s first-quarter performance reflects our continued focus on supporting our existing customers and closing of new deals. With COVID-19 global pandemic hitting the world by surprise since early March 2020, we took all the necessary steps to insure our employees are kept safe and productive, while controlling our expenses to properly address the new financial and market challenges.

In addition, as part of our continued efforts to improve our financial position and as a testimony of our confidence in our existing operations, during the first quarter we increased our equity interest in Roshtov Software Industries Ltd., by 20.05%, from 60% to 80.05%, and in Comblack IT Ltd., by 10.2%, from 70% to 80.2%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains the following non-GAAP financial measures: Non-GAAP gross profit, Non-GAAP operating income, Non-GAAP net income attributable to Magic’s shareholders and Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share.

Magic believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to Magic’s financial condition and results of operations. Magic’s management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, for purposes of determining executive and senior management incentive compensation and for budgeting and planning purposes. These measures are used in financial reports prepared for management and in quarterly financial reports presented to the Company’s board of directors. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Management of the Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgment by management about which expenses and income are excluded or included in determining these non-GAAP financial measures. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents non-GAAP financial measures in connection with GAAP results. Magic urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results, including this press release, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

Non-GAAP measures used in this press release are included in the financial tables of this release. These non-GAAP measures exclude the following items:

  • Amortization of purchased intangible assets and other related costs;
  • In-process research and development capitalization and amortization;
  • Equity-based compensation expenses;
  • Costs relates to acquisition of new businesses
  • The related tax, non-controlling interests and redeemable non-controlling interests effects of the above items;
  • Change in valuation of contingent consideration related to acquisitions;
  • Change in value of put options of redeemable non-controlling interests;
  • Change in deferred tax assets on carry forward tax losses;

Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included in the financial tables of this release.
