BlackBerry Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Fiscal Year 2021 Results – Yahoo Finance


Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2021:

  • Total company non-GAAP revenue of $215 million; total company GAAP revenue of $210 million.

  • During the quarter BlackBerry entered into an exclusive negotiation with a North American entity for the potential sale of part of the patent portfolio relating primarily to mobile devices, messaging and wireless networking. The Company has limited its patent monetization activities due to the ongoing negotiations. If the Company had not been in negotiations during the quarter, we believe that Licensing revenue would have been higher.

  • Non-GAAP earnings per basic and diluted share of $0.03; GAAP loss per basic and diluted share of $0.56.

  • GAAP loss per share was largely driven by a non-cash accounting adjustment on the convertible debentures, resulting from market conditions. This adjustment equates to approximately $0.46 of GAAP loss per share.

  • Net cash generated from operating activities of $51 million.

Fiscal Year 2021:

  • Total company non-GAAP revenue of $919 million; total company GAAP revenue of $893 million.

  • Non-GAAP earnings per basic and diluted share of $0.18; GAAP loss per basic and diluted share of $1.97.

  • Net cash generated from operating activities of $82 million.

Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Measures with the Nearest Comparable U.S. GAAP Measures

In the Company’s internal reports, management evaluates the performance of the Company’s business on a non-GAAP basis by excluding the impact of certain items below from the Company’s U.S. GAAP financial results. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide readers of the Company’s financial statements with a consistent basis for comparison across accounting periods and is useful in helping readers understand the Company’s operating results and underlying operational trends.

Readers are cautioned that adjusted revenue, adjusted Software and Services revenue, adjusted gross margin, adjusted gross margin percentage, adjusted operating expense, adjusted operating income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income margin percentage, adjusted EBITDA margin percentage, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted income (loss) per share, adjusted research and development expense, adjusted selling, marketing and administrative expense and adjusted amortization expense and similar measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by U.S. GAAP and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in the context of the U.S. GAAP results.
