[Tisková zpráva] Quarterly Revenue of $369 million. GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.04. Non-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per Share of $0.32. Board of Directors Authorizes $300 Million Increase to Share Repurchase Program.


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — April 29, 2009 — Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 ended March 31, 2009.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2009, Citrix achieved revenue of $369 million, compared to $377 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2008, representing a 2 percent decrease in revenue.

GAAP Results
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $7 million, or $0.04 per diluted share compared to $34 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2008. These GAAP results include a restructuring charge of approximately $21 million.

Non-GAAP Results
Non-GAAP net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $59 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to $66 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, in the comparable period last year. Non-GAAP net income excludes the effects of amortization of intangible assets primarily related to business combinations and stock-based compensation expenses and the tax effects related to those items. In addition, non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2009 also excludes the effect of the restructuring program that the company implemented in January 2009.

„I’m pleased with our Q1 execution in the toughest macro environment we’ve seen in years, said Mark Templeton, president and chief executive officer. "Smaller IT budgets are the new reality. We believe this makes our enterprise and SaaS products even more compelling because they lower IT costs while offering much-needed business flexibility.“

In addition to quarterly financial results, Citrix also announced that its board of directors has authorized it to repurchase up to an additional $300 million of its common stock. As of March 31, 2009, approximately $50 million remained in authority from previous approvals.
