The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.

Reports Strong Non-GAAP Revenue, Non-GAAP EPS, and Cash Flow

- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN) today announced financial results for its first quarter fiscal 2016, ended December 31, 2015.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2016, Nuance reported GAAP revenue of $486.1 million, up from $474.0 million a year ago. Nuance reported non‑GAAP revenue of $494.9 million, which includes $8.8 million of revenue lost to accounting treatment in conjunction with acquisitions, compared to $489.0 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. First quarter 2016 reve nue was negatively affected by currency fluctuations as well. If first quarter 2015 currency rates were applied to first quarter 2016 non-GAAP revenue, Nuance would have achieved approximately 2% organic non-GAAP revenue growth for the quarter. In the first quarter of 2016, total non-GAAP recurring revenue was $332.5 million and represented 67% of total non-GAAP revenue, compared to $321.7 million and 66% a year ago. In the first quarter of fiscal 2016, Nuance reported net new bookings of $308.7 million, up 2% from $303.8 million a year ago. If first quarter 2015 currency rates were applied to first quarter 2016 net new bookings, net new bookings would have been up approximately 7% from a year ago.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2016, Nuance recognized GAAP net loss of $(12.1) million, or $(0.04) per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $(50.5) million, or $(0.16) per share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Nuance reported non-GAAP net income of $113.0 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, up from non-GAAP net income of $82.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Nuance’s first quarter fiscal 2016 non‑GAAP operating margin was 28.6%, up from 22.0% in the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Nuance reported cash flow from operations of $141.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2016, up 48% from $95.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

“In our first quarter, Nuance delivered strong revenue, non-GAAP EPS, and cash flow from operations,” said Dan Tempesta, Nuance’s CFO. “We continued to make substantial progress and achieve meaningful results from our formal transformation program. The entire organization is committed to ongoing performance enhancements that will lead us to improve growth, margins and shareholder value.”

Definitions of Bookings and Net New Bookings

Bookings represent the estimated gross revenue value of transactions at the time of contract execution, except for maintenance and support offerings. For fixed price contracts, the bookings value represents the gross total contract value. For contracts where revenue is based on transaction volume, the bookings value represents the contract price multiplied by the estimated future transaction volume during the contract term, whether or not such transaction volumes are guaranteed under a minimum commitment clause. Actual results could be different than our initial estimates. The maintenance and support bookings value represents the amounts billed in the period the customer is invoiced. Because of the inherent estimates required to determine bookings and the fact that the actual resultant revenue may differ from our initial bookings estimates, we consider bookings one indicator of potential future revenue and not as an arithmetic measure of backlog.

Net new bookings represents the estimated revenue value at the time of contract execution from new contractual arrangements or the estimated revenue value incremental to the portion of value that will be renewed under pre-existing arrangements. Constant currency for net new bookings is calculated using current period net new bookings denominated in currencies other than United States dollars, converted into United States dollars using the average exchange rate for those currencies from the prior year period rather than the actual exchange rate in effect during the current period.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Organic Revenue Growth

Organic revenue growth is calculated by comparing current period non-GAAP revenue to non-GAAP revenue from the corresponding prior-year period. For purposes of this calculation, prior period non-GAAP revenue is adjusted to include revenue from companies acquired by Nuance as if we had owned the acquired businesses in all periods presented. Non-GAAP organic revenue growth on a constant currency basis is calculated using current period non-GAAP revenue for entities reporting in currencies other than United States dollars, excluding United States dollar denominated transactions recorded in those entities, converted into United States dollars using the average exchange rates from the prior year period rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period.
