OpenText Reports Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results

Barrenechea further added, "As for our quarterly financial results, we did not meet our full financial objectives. As for revenue, we were affected by foreign exchange and customers transitioning to our cloud; as for profit, we were affected by foreign exchange and unique items in the quarter, such as acquisitions, litigation costs and others, the benefits of which should be seen in future quarters. With that said, I am pleased that our recurring revenues grew by 4%, up 10% in constant currency, and we had record operating cash flows of $143.1 million in the quarter."

"Foreign currency volatility continued to have a significant impact on our results in the quarter and on a year-to-date basis," said John Doolittle, OpenText CFO. "Although we are fighting currency headwinds, we are pleased with our growth in recurring revenues and our operating cash flow performance, attributed to our strong working capital management this quarter. Based on the operating cash performance, our strong liquidity position and our focus on delivering value to shareholders, we have increased our quarterly dividend to $0.20."

*Constant currency for this purpose is defined as the current period reported revenues/expenses/earnings represented at the prior comparative period's foreign exchange rate.
