Novell, Inc. announced preliminary financial results for its first fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007. These financial results are preliminary because Novell, during the third fiscal quarter of 2006, began a self-initiated, voluntary review of the company's historical stock-based compensation practices and related potential accounting impact. The financial results reported today do not take into account any adjustments that may be required in connection with the completion of the stock-based compensation review and should be considered preliminary until Novell files its Form 10-Q report for the third fiscal quarter ended July 31, 2006, its Form 10-K report for the full fiscal year ended Oct. 31, 2006, and its Form 10-Q report for the first fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2007.

For the first fiscal quarter 2007, Novell reported net revenue of $230 million, compared to net revenue of $242 million for the first fiscal quarter 2006. The loss available to common stockholders from continuing operations in the first fiscal quarter 2007 was $20 million, or $0.06 loss per common share. This compares to income available to common stockholders from continuing operations of $4 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share, for the first fiscal quarter 2006.

On a non-GAAP basis, which includes stock-based compensation as described below, adjusted loss available to common stockholders from continuing operations for the first fiscal quarter 2007 was $3 million, or $0.01 loss per common share. This compares to non-GAAP adjusted income available to common stockholders from continuing operations of $4 million, or $0.01 per diluted common share, for the first fiscal quarter 2006.
