Symantec Delivers Solid Fiscal Third Quarter Operating Results

Symantec Corp. reported the results of its third quarter of fiscal year 2009, ended Jan. 2, 2009. GAAP revenue for the quarter was $1.51 billion and non-GAAP revenue was $1.54 billion. Symantec delivered stronger than expected results on all of its key financial metrics in the fiscal third quarter.

Quarterly Results
GAAP Results: GAAP net loss for the third quarter was $6.81 billion compared with net income of $132 million for the same quarter last year. GAAP diluted loss per share was $8.23 compared with diluted earnings per share of $0.15 for the same quarter last year.

The GAAP net loss for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009 includes a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $7 billion. Based on a combination of factors, including the current economic environment and a decline in our market capitalization, we concluded that there were sufficient indicators to require us to perform an interim goodwill impairment analysis. We have not completed the goodwill impairment analysis and expect to finalize it during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. We may make an adjustment to this charge when the goodwill impairment analysis is completed.
