- Q2’18 license and subscription bookings were $99 million, up 4% year over year, despite one large Q2 forecasted deal that did not close until the beginning of Q3. On a year-to-date basis, bookings were $203 million, up 10% year over year, and the subscription mix was 72%.
- Q2’18 GAAP software revenue was $262 million and non-GAAP software revenue was $263 million, an increase of 12% year over year in each case, despite a 700 basis point increase in the subscription mix compared to the same period last year.
- Approximately 91% of second quarter software revenue came from recurring revenue streams, up from 88% in the same period last year.
- Annualized Recurring Revenue (ARR) was $961 million, an increase of 15% year over year and the fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth.
- Total deferred revenue – billed and unbilled - increased $382 million or 43% year-over-year and increased $94 million or 8% sequentially to $1.26 billion. Billed deferred revenue increased 1% year-over year and 15% sequentially, to $498 million. Billed deferred revenue can fluctuate quarterly based upon the contractual billings dates in our recurring revenue contracts, as well as the timing of our fiscal reporting periods. Q2’18 ended on March 31st this year, as opposed to April 1st for Q2’17. Recurring revenue billings on April 1, 2018 were approximately $79 million, so had Q2’18 ended on April 1, billed deferred revenue would have grown approximately 17% year over year.
