Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Thank you, Harry. Well, good afternoon to everyone, and thank you for joining today's call. There are a variety of key topics I'd like to discuss today. Our strategy including the momentum of our cloud business and how the intelligent edge is going to play a larger role for OpenText. Second, Carbonite and our road map ahead. I'd like to discuss today our strong Q2 results. Our go-to-market opportunity and partner strategy, the general M&A environment as we see it, and we introduced a guiding principle durable in September 2019. I plan to spend some time on that today in the OpenText's operating model. And lastly, our financial outlook both short and longer term.

Let me jump right in and speak to the strategy, the cloud, and what I call the intelligent edge. We have successfully transformed into a modern cloud company. Servicing the information need to the world's largest enterprises and governments, and with Carbonite, we will bring the cloud and information management to customers of all sizes. From zero cloud revenue in 2012 to today, our cloud business has grown at a 30% CAGR. And the OpenText Cloud is on track to be the largest business segment in fiscal '21, approaching three extra license business and larger than our maintenance business.

We've built the cloud business and delivered incredible growth, while expanding license, expanding maintenance, expanding adjusted EBITDA and expanding cash flows. Our guide was to find new revenue dollars, not substitute an existing dollar or another one. This highlights our culture, the OpenText way and the OpenText business system. We now have three primary cloud businesses of scale and significant total growth opportunities within each: business network, content services and cyber resilience.

The business network. We have one of the world's largest and most advanced business networks. The business is benefiting from the structural changes in global trade, increased in changing tariffs, privacy, compliance and ethical trade. Secular trends are not likely to change anytime soon.

Content services. We're in a data economy. You can't create an information advantage unless you have all the right data, in the right place, at the right time, in the same business context and always keep it up to date. Our content services business is benefiting from the move to digitize, standardize and centralize information from all sources, human and machine structured and unstructured, to create a sustainable information advantage. We are the market and innovation leader in content services both in the cloud and off-cloud.

Cyber resilience. We're also in the distributed nomadic data economy with data generated from billions of humans and endpoints, inside and outside the organizations including suppliers, partners, customers and contractors. This environment creates significant challenges for corporate security officers to protect their environments.

Carbonite security. Now the Carbonite security cloud enables us to offer holistic security solutions to enterprise customers and all of the endpoints that touch their network, including small, medium businesses and professional consumers. We continue to drive rapid innovation across all of our cloud platforms. The upcoming release of cloud addition is an important weight point on that journey. With 20.2 we have more of a Saas, we have more SaaS services and customers will never have to upgrade again. Our cloud business has never been stronger and partners and customers alike are recognizing our leadership position. We connect with thousands of customers and prospects in our recent 24-city cloud tour. The shift in the cloud has profound long-term business impacts that enable us to simplify our go-to-market, improve sales productivity, drive speed to market and increase responsiveness to real-time changing customer needs. The net effect is higher customer renewal rates and satisfaction and increasing annual renewal rates or ARR, annual recurring revenues ARR and increasing the predictability of the business.

To reinforce this shift, check out our new home page on You will see four simple titles now on our homepage. Log on to the OpenText cloud. I encourage you to click on it and see the 15 SaaS services. We have live of Second tile, get support; third tile, the developer; and fourth, contact us. So it's not just about the cloud. It is also about the edge, the intelligent edge. Some estimates speak to 1 trillion endpoints over the next 10 years by 2030, including all vehicles, machinery, engines, brake systems, medical devices, wearables, smart cellphones, laptops, tablets, robots and more. The edges define the shape of the cloud. It defines where human innovate, work and play. It defines the expanding role machines will have in our society. With Carbonite, OpenText can uniquely offer cloud and edge solutions for intelligent, connected and secure information management.

Let me give you a big number, 100 million. OpenText software is now running on 100 million endpoints by our estimates. This is opportunity in its purest form. And I would like to say -- as I like to say it's your edge, own it. We'll also see the benefits of this scale, and we have a clear path to drive our cloud business. We expect cloud margins to expand from the high 50s into the mid-60s, supporting our fiscal year '22 aspirations. Finally, I think it's important to recognize that we have given our customers choice on how they want to do business with us in the cloud and off-cloud. We have successfully grown our cloud business without sacrificing our license revenues or margins.

Let me turn to Carbonite. I'm pleased to announce that we completed the acquisition of Carbonite on December 24. I welcome our new employees, customers and partners to OpenText. Carbonite is a leading provider of cloud-based subscription backup, disaster recovery, endpoint security and threat intelligence. Combining Carbonite's data protection, backup and document retention, endpoint protection and threat intelligence solutions and our gold standard EnCase products will provide a comprehensive cyber resilience solution for customers that we believe is unmatched in the industry. That's why we use the term, cyber resilience.

The acquisition is our most significant since the purchase of Dell EMC of its Enterprise Content division, including Documentum and significantly enhances OpenText business mix and predictability. It's strategic on multiple vectors, and I'd like to walk through them today. First, Carbonite brings us leadership in the third pillar, the large in growing cyber resilience market, complementing our leadership positions in content services and business network. Second, it is expected to increase the annualized run rate of our cloud subscription businesses significantly and improve the future of productivity -- predictability rather, of our revenue stream. Third, Carbonite brings 16,000 new channel partners to OpenText and a new route to market that complements our strong enterprise sales capabilities. With Carbonite we can now deliver world-class Information Management solution to customers of all shapes and sizes. Fourth, we evolved from EIM to IM, from Enterprise Information Management to Information Management, expanding our vision of products again all size customers from the largest enterprises, governments, mid-sized companies, small companies and professional consumers. And to round out our strategic rationale, the cloud opportunity is of course massive and I've called it a once in a 20 year opportunity, but equally important busy edge of the cloud. We work and innovate on endpoints on the edge of the cloud. The edge is mobile, expanding, smart and very personal. The OpenText opportunity just got larger by embracing the edge.

Let me also spend a few moments on the top four long-term growth opportunities for Carbonite. First it is pretty straightforward, expand the MSP and RMM channels and increase our reach. Second unlock, the OEM opportunity with BrightCloud. If you're not familiar with this service, please check out or simply go to and click on the log on the cloud button to look at BrightCloud. It is a great solution that authenticates every URL that it processes. Third, expand the Carbonite opportunity within the OpenText enterprise via what I call file integrity. Carbonite can provide endpoint data protection as well as ensure the authenticity and integrity of every file which flows through content services in our business network. And fourth, bring Carbonite into Europe via OpenText scale. We will be focusing on these top four value plays, among others to pursue long-term growth opportunities.

Let me turn to our Q2 results. This is our 20th consecutive quarter of year-over-year total revenue growth. It is also our 20th consecutive quarter of year-over-year cloud revenue growth. Our talent and leadership are world-class. They delivered exceptional Q2 results in a volatile selling environment. Let me walk through our results and all my remarks are in constant currency and with year-over-year comparison. We had record total revenue of $782 million, up 6.3%, record ARR of $571 million, up 7.8%, the 73% of total revenue cloud up 14%, license up 6%, CS up 3%, NPS down slightly at 3%. We had positive organic growth within the quarter; adjusted EBITDA dollars of $323 million, up 5%; and an adjusted EBITDA margin of 41.4%. License margin of 98%, cloud margin of 58%, CS margin of 91%, NPS margin of 24%. Adjusted EPS of $0.86, up 7.5%. Operating cash flows of $207 million, up 9.6%, ending cash flow of $675 million. The net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 2.3 times. Off-cloud renewal rates were strong in the low 90s. Cloud renewal rates were in the mid to high 90s. We had 45 new managed service customers, including HSBC, Archer Daniels Midland and Wells Fargo.

Let me touch on some customer wins within the quarter. The first, the Netherlands Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy is the ministry that oversees national policies including commercial, international and industrial trade, investment policy as well as all energy, renewable strategy, climate change and environmental policies. The ministry selected OpenText Information management solutions to digitize and automate government processes across multiple departments through a single platform in the cloud, enabling them to accelerate renewable energy and policies to support a stronger climate.

I'd also like to highlight a second win, the German Ministry of Justice in Rhineland-Palatinate together with three other state judicial administration selecting OpenText intelligent capture to digitize up to 100 million pages of incoming documents in 1,000 workplaces as part of the introduction of electronic court records to accelerate the delivery of fair and just decisions. These are just a couple of highlights. Full customer wins can be seen in our investor deck.

I've talked a little bit about go-to-market. Our go-to-market and partners. Partners are a force multiplier. We are a partner-oriented company with a long history of success with best-in-class companies such as SAP, Salesforce, Microsoft, Global System Implementers and many more. Some of these relationships are a decade strong. In early 2019, we announced a partnership with Google. We expanded that relationship over the summer, and have begun to see meaningful traction in the marketplace. We have the talent culture to make partners successful, and we'll continue this track record of successful Carbonite.

Let me spend a moment on this. Craig Stillwell has joined OpenText's leadership team as Executive Vice President of SMB and Consumer from Carbonite, where he was the Chief Revenue Officer, and Craig will report to me directly. Craig brings decades of experience in partner and commercial sales, most notably from Citrix. One of the keys to Carbonite success is the ability to deliver a high value product at low incremental cost through their cloud platform to 300,000 SMB customers. We see significant opportunities to enhance the breadth and depth of their products to improve profitability and expand geographically beyond the company's predominantly US market. I talked about this as one of the value plays we'll pursue.

Ted Harrison, of course, will continue to lead our enterprise sales business, reporting to me, targeting the Global 10,000, which includes a 10,000 largest organizations, governments and companies in the world. We remain committed to doubling our G10K covered from 40% to 80% in the next three years through both direct sales and partnerships.

Let me emphasize from our Investor Day, any margin gains above 40% will be reinvested to drive sales growth across enterprise and SMB. We recently added a new global account management organization, for example, within the enterprise, provide laser focused on our top enterprise customers. One enterprise team can focus on the enterprise, customers -- the Carbonite SMB and consumer channel and focus on SMB in the consumer as we leverage these new routes to market. We now have complete go-to-market coverage. The more we can connect a customer to an OpenText product, the more we win.

Let me transition a little bit to the M&A environment. Before we touch on the wider M&A environment, I'd like to point you to the strong liquidity and balance sheet slide and the Q2 fiscal year 20 Financial and Business Results presentation on our website. Our strong cash flows enabled us to rapidly pay down debt incurred by the Documentum acquisition, and we expect to repeat this will Carbonite to reduce our net leverage ratio from 3. -- excuse me, from 2.3 times today to less than 2 times within the next four to five quarters.

Now for the M&A environment. Now we see an extended market period of modest global growth, low cost of capital and a volatile macro environment, due to geopolitical and trade disruption. And times such as these companies tend to shed assets. This creates an opportunity for patient and strategic acquirers like OpenText. Carbonite represents our ninth cloud acquisition including EasyLink, GXS, Reccomind, ANX, Covisint, Hightail, Catalyst and Liaison. We have a proven track record of success. We're being committed to acquiring value-based assets and unlocking value using the OpenText business system. It is this discipline that has enabled us to acquire nine cloud companies at value prices and deliver high teens ROIC. Our primary focus is on the successful accretive integration of Carbonite and getting it on our target model by the end of fiscal '21 or sooner. At the same time, we still have an active pipeline of opportunities we are evaluating. We'll continue to be an opportunistic, strategic acquirer while we build out our information management platform.

I'd like to turn to and emphasize the word durable from our Investor Day in September. The durability of the OpenText operating model and our financial outlook for short and long term. As I spoke earlier about 20 consecutive quarters of year-over-year total growth, 20 consecutive quarters of year-over-year cloud revenue growth, our annual recurring revenues now represent 96% of total revenue, up from 65% from a few years ago and expanding. Our customer support renewals are in excess of 90%, and our renewal rates are in the mid to high 90s. Our trailing 12-month operating cash flow is $860 million and Carbonite will further the predictability of our business. This is the definition of durable.

Let me get on to the macro in our quarterly factors. We are expecting, again, for our quarterly factors, we are expecting low double-digit revenue growth in Q3 fiscal '20 on a year-over-year basis. This includes Carbonite and FX. Non-GAAP total operating expenses to be approximately 30% higher in Q3 fiscal '20 on a sequential basis and Q2 fiscal '20 of $286.1 million and Q3 fiscal '20 adjusted EBITDA dollars to be flat to slightly up on a year-over-year basis. You will see all these items presented in the quarterly factors section of our investor materials.

We view our business annually. For the full fiscal year '20, inclusive of carbonate and FX, let me update you on our business targets. Expect a $195 million to $200 million of new Carbonite revenues for the second half of fiscal '20. And this is after PPA or purchase price adjustments in any typical disruption factor as we integrate the business. Year-over-year license growth in the low mid single-digit. Year-over-year cloud growth in the low to mid 20%. Customer support constant to low single-digit growth. Professional services constant dollars year-over-year and margin expansion, positive organic growth, positive OCF growth, year-over-year increase in adjusted EBITDA dollars, year-over-year increase in adjusted EPS and Carbonite will be accretive to adjusted EPS this fiscal year. And I'm pleased to confirm that we're on track to meet our fiscal '22 aspirations of adjusted EBITDA and OCF, that's 38% to 40% adjusted EBITDA and $1 billion to $1.1 billion of operating cash flow. As a reminder, as previously you had highlighted, we plan to discuss any fiscal '21 target once we complete fiscal '20 and conjunctive with that we'll communicate our annual dividend approach now aligned to our fiscal year.

Turning to the changing global macro environment in our quarterly factors. We have highlighted a few areas in our investor presentation that have the potential to impact customer spending environment. Global recession concerns, trade and tariff floors, Europe, US -- and US manufacturing slowed down, the Coronavirus as well as the Gulf nations and the pending Brexit. While we have not seen any material impacts to our business due to macro related factors, and our business in China is de minimis we all read the same newspapers remain mindful of global events. Despite the macro environment we remain confident and ready for any economic environment with our durable business model. We're poised to capitalize on a structural shift in global trade. US dollars remains -- the US dollar remain strong compared to other currencies and this has caused a short-term FX revenue headwind.

In Q2 fiscal '20 the FX revenue impact was a negative $10.2 million and we continue to expect a total FX revenue impact of negative $35 million to our revenues in fiscal '20. As a reminder, over 50% of our revenue and profits are in the US. And Carbonite's revenues are US centric and in the investor materials, you'll see 58% of total revenues are from the America. On the earnings front OpenText continues to utilize balanced and natural hedging in our cost structure that reduces that volatility earnings.

Let me summarize. In summary, I want to reinforce that the company is focused and ready for all scenarios. The continued adoption of hybrid cloud by our enterprise customers are gaining share with our upcoming cloud additions, winning the cyber resilience and the SMB consumer markets, widening our aperture to include the intelligent edge. We're well positioned to capture our existing Information Management share both in the United States and globally, and we are the market leader in content services and business networks and a rising leader in cyber security. We are patient and disciplined strategic acquirer. OpenText is part of a new generation cloud companies inventing the future of business, and we have a once in a 20 year opportunity to help our customers migrate to the cloud, reinvent their business processes and provide secure and resilient platforms from endpoints through to identity.

I'll end my prepared remarks here and with that's my pleasure to turn the call over to Madhu Ranganathan, OpenText's Chief Financial Officer. Madhu?

Madhu Ranganathan -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Mark, and thank you all for joining us today. First of all, a huge welcome to all members of Carbonite. The OpenText and Carbonite teams work diligently together to close the second quarter and our integration has commenced with strength. We closed Carbonite on December 24 and during the eight days into Q2, Carbonite contributed $9.5 million in revenues and a net loss of $3.7 million on a GAAP basis primarily on account of intangible amortization and one-time fees of special charges. Carbonite was accretive on a non-GAAP basis.

As we turn to the details of our quarterly results. All financials discussed are inclusive of Carbonite's eight days of contribution. Please note that our updated fiscal '20 target model is included in our Q2 investor presentation posted on our IR website and will be addressed in my comments. Our long-term fiscal '22 aspirations remain unchanged. Similar to prior quarters, my references will be in millions of USD and compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year.

Let me start with revenues and earnings. Total revenues were $771.6 million, up 4.9% or up 6.3% on a constant currency basis. Foreign exchange continues to be meaningful. There was a $10 million FX negative impact to revenue in the quarter. Year-to-date total revenues were $1.5 billion, up 4.7% or up 6.1% on a constant currency basis. Earnings per share. For the quarter, GAAP earnings per share diluted was $0.40 up from $0.39. And in the quarter non-GAAP earnings per share diluted was $0.84, up from $0.80 or up $0.06 on a constant currency basis. On a year-to-date basis GAAP earnings per share diluted was $0.67, up from $0.52 and primarily due to increase in revenues. Year-to-date non-GAAP earnings per share diluted was $1.48, up $0.08 or up $0.11 per share on a constant currency basis.

The geographical split of revenues of total revenues in the quarter was Americas 58%, EMEA 33%, and APJ 9%. Annual recurring revenues were $563.8 million, up 6.5% or up 7.8% on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date annual recurring revenue was $1.1 billion, up 6.1% or up 7.4% on a constant currency basis. Annual recurring revenues as a percent of total revenues was 73% for the quarter, up from 72% in the prior year and 76% year-to-date, up from 75% in the prior year. Our cloud revenues were particularly strong at $248.3 million, up 13.3% or up 14.1% on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date cloud revenues of $485.6 million, up 13.6% or up 14.5% on a constant currency basis. Our customer support revenues were $315.5 million, up 1.7% or 3.3% up on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date, customer support revenues were $627.8 million, up 0.9% or up 2.6% on a constant currency basis. Our customer support renewal rate was up slightly to approximately 93% from 92% last quarter. Our license revenues were $138.1 million up 4% or up 5.6% on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date, our license revenues were $216 million, up 3% or up 4.6% on a constant currency basis. Our professional services revenues were $69.6 million, down 4.5% or down 2.9% on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date, professional services revenues were $139 million, down 3.1% or down 1.4% on a constant currency basis.

Turning to margins. GAAP gross margin was 69.9%, up 90 basis points. Year-to-date, GAAP gross margin was 68.6%, up 100 basis points. Our adjusted gross margin was 75.5%, down 20 basis points. Year-to-date, adjusted gross margin was 74.4% also down 20 basis points. During both periods adjusted gross margin is well within the range of our fiscal '20 target model. Also on an adjusted basis cloud margin was 58.4%, a 130 basis point improvement from Q1 fiscal '20, but down from 59.7% last year. Year-to-date cloud margin was 57.8% down from 58.9%. Our customer support, margin was 90.7%, up from 90%. Year to date, customer support margin was 90.7% up from 90.2%. Our license margin was 97.8%, up from 97.2%. Year-to-date, license margin was 97.5%, up from 96.4%. Our professional services margin was 23.5% and consistent with last year. Year-to-date, professional services margin was 22.8%, up from 22%. Adjusted EBITDA was $317 million, up 2.8% or up 4.9% on a constant currency basis. Margin wise, this represents 41.1% down slightly compared to 41.9% last year. Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA was $571.2 million, up 3%, or up 4.9% on a constant currency basis. Margin wise, this represents 38.9%, down slightly by 60 basis points.

Our adjusted net income was $227 million, up 5.2% or up 8.1% on a constant currency basis. Year-to-date, adjusted net income was $400.5 million, up 6.1% or up 8.8% on a constant currency basis. GAAP net income was $107.5 million, up 2.9%. Year to date, GAAP net income was $181.9 million, up 29.2% and primarily due to increase in revenues.

Turning to operating cash flows. It was $207.2 million, an increase of 9.6%. Year-to-date, operating cash flows was $347 million, down by 4.4%. Our collection efficiencies remained strong with our current quarter DSO at 57 days lower by 2 days compared to Q2 fiscal '19, improving all aspects of working capital efficiencies for OpenText and carbonite will be a key focus for us.

Balance sheet. From a balance sheet perspective, we ended the quarter with approximately $675 million in cash, compared to approximately $999 million in Q1 fiscal '20, down in a large measure due to cash used to complete the Carbonite acquisition. And looking back, our efforts to build balance sheet strength over the past several fiscal years have paid off. Our consolidated net leverage ratio was 2.3 times. We also remain confident in our ability to bring on net leverage ratio down below 2 times in the next four to five quarters.

The acquisition of Carbonite as mentioned on December 24, 2019 we required Carbonite for $1.4 billion financed by cash on hand and our existing revolver. We have recorded a $75 million reduction in Carbonite's deferred revenue as purchase price allocation adjustment. I will refer you to the slide called Carbonite Update and Revenue Impact in our Q2 Investor Relations presentation posted on our website and in our 10-Q for further details. For the second half of fiscal '20, we expect Carbonite revenue to be between $195 million to $200 million after PPA and typical business disruption of up to 10% due to integration activities. As a reminder, we expect Carbonite to be in our operating model by the end of fiscal '21.

Carbonite integration and restructuring plan. We are committed to a thoughtful and fast integration of Carbonite to OpenText. Carbonite will be accretive during fiscal '20. We expect the integration to be completed by the end of fiscal '21 or sooner. Today we are announcing a restructuring plan that integrates Carbonite into OpenText and also into streamlining operations at OpenText. The anticipated cost is expected to be approximately $26 million to $34 million. These restructuring activities are anticipated to be completed by the end of fiscal '21 and once completed OpenText anticipates annualized cost savings of approximately $37 million to $41 million. We expect any savings realized during the remainder of fiscal '20 to be largely offset by one-time Carbonite integration cost with the majority of the financial benefit to be realized in fiscal '21.

Our fiscal '20 target operating model and long-term aspirations. We are executing well to our business plan. The impact of restructuring has been considered in the fiscal '20 target model framework that we are sharing with you today. We highlight the following changes. With the acquisition of Carbonite, we have increased the contribution of cloud revenues from 31% to 35% to 34% to 38%. We expect a 100 basis points increase in our annual recurring revenue range of 75% to 77%. We're also increasing the fiscal '20 target model ranges for non-GAAP cloud gross margins to 58% to 60%. We expect Carbonite to be accretive and increase the adjusted EBITDA dollars. This is reflected in the adjusted EBITDA margin range of 36% to 37% in our fiscal target model. Please refer to our IR deck for further details of other aspects of our target model.

Our fiscal '22 aspirations. We remain on track to meet our fiscal '22 long-term aspirations. Our current fiscal '22 aspirations include 38% to 40% adjusted EBITDA with margins above this range reinvested for future growth, including product, sales capacity, partners and marketing. $1 billion to $1.1 billion operating cash flow during fiscal '22. With the inclusion of Carbonite, we see upside opportunities to our operating cash flows, which we will update during our annual fiscal '20 earnings call.

Our quarterly factor, and let me summarize here and reiterate the quarterly factors that we anticipate for our upcoming Q3. I would emphasize a few items. As we look at where FX rates are today as well as the geographical components of our business, we note that the FX headwind for the first half of fiscal '20 were $20 million to revenues. We continue to expect approximately $35 million annual FX headwind for fiscal '20 inclusive of Carbonite. And furthermore inclusive of Carbonite we expect low double-digit revenue growth in Q3 on a year-over-year basis. Expect non-GAAP total operating expenses in Q3 to be up approximately 30% compared to Q2 fiscal '20 of $286.1 million, as we include a full quarter of Carbonite's operations and seasonal increases relating to our annual performance cycle. Our adjusted EBITDA dollars to be flat to slightly up on a year-over-year basis.

Our tax update with respect to the IRS matter. We remain in the appeal space. The standard IRS process continues and our results remains strong as we vigorously defend our position. Dividend. Turning to our dividend program. Today we announced a quarterly dividend of $0.1746 per share payable on March 20, 2020. Our rate is based in distributing approximately 20% of our trailing 12-month operating cash flows. And to reiterate our annual dividend approach will be communicated following our fiscal year end.

In summary, we are pleased with our Q2 results. We have kicked off with integration of Carbonate with strength and remained focused on our fiscal '20 and long-term targets. And finally, I'd like to thank you, our shareholders whose trust and confidence we greatly value, and the OpenText team for their deeply committed efforts.

And now I would like to turn the call over to the operator for questions. Operator?

Questions and Answers:


Thank you. We will now begin the question-and-answer session. [Operator Insutctions] Our first question comes from Raimo Lenschow of Barclays.

Raimo Lenschow -- Barclays -- Analyst

Hey, thanks for taking my question. I had a couple of quick ones. First, Mark, can you -- so we owned Carbonite for like a bit over a month now. Can you just see what your strategy around cyber resilience. What was the initial customer feedback that you've seen so far?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. Thanks for the question. The feedback has been amazingly positive. It's a very natural extension to want -- to provide in our information management strategy, the protection and resiliency of information, not just the kind of the management of it in content services or the exchange in connectivity of it through business network. But now to be able to provide data protection and security and threat intelligence around it. So I'd say extremely positive and it's a very talented workforce. We love the channel that they have built. The cultures are coming together, very, very nicely and we have opportunities both ways. We have product to be able to provide the SMB channel from OpenText and the ability to take data protection in BrightCloud into the enterprise. So things are natural they tend to come together.

Raimo Lenschow -- Barclays -- Analyst

Okay. Perfect. Thank you. And then the quick other question because you're kind of obviously one of the very larger -- of the larger leading software vendors and you have like a bigger global footprint than other people. What are you seeing in terms of end demand out there, because a couple of quarters that was something that you highlighted. If I look at the results, it looks like everything is kind of going well out there?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. As I said in my remarks, in sort of our quarterly factors. We're expecting positive organic growth this year on an annual basis. The M&A environment continues to be healthy for us in building pipeline. But the hot spots around the world sort of continue to include manufacturing, you got to be -- continue to watch trade and tariffs. It's a bit unpredictable and though our business is a little is de minimis in China, obviously, we're all watching the Choronavirus very carefully and how that might affect travel, transportation and a few other sectors.

But if we look at our results of total revenues, up near 5% in reported and 7% in constant currency, we're seeing a stronger demand for digitalization in our solutions.

Raimo Lenschow -- Barclays -- Analyst

Okay. Perfect. And then one last question. And Madhu cash flow was very -- operating cash flow was very strong this quarter. Were there any particular drivers you wanted to point out to?

Madhu Ranganathan -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

I mean, as I've said in my comments, we continue to improve sort of the working capital framework. Our DSOs are 2 days lower than prior year. And you should sort of expected to see that gradual progress as we get into fiscal '20 and '21 as well.

Raimo Lenschow -- Barclays -- Analyst

Perfect. Okay. Thank you. Congratulations.

Madhu Ranganathan -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Thank you.

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Thank you.


Our next question comes from Daniel Jester of Citi Bank.

Daniel Jester -- Citi Bank -- Analyst

Yes. Thank you for taking my question. Good afternoon everyone. So Mark, you mentioned in your prepared remarks about the 24-city cloud tour that you hosted this fall. I'm just wondering if you could just share with us some of the feedback you've got from that. And specifically, I'm wondering if you learned anything that revises kind of your expectations for the Cloud Edition launch later this year?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. Thanks for the question. We're -- just reflecting back over seven years of growing from zero cloud revenues to the incredible scale we have today. Looking back, it's a 30% CAGAR over near seven years, the quarter up 14%, and we kind of revised upwards our '20-our fiscal '20 view to where we're going to see about 20% plus growth in the cloud. The cloud tour was about a part of our cloud, which is our managed services, and that's primarily what's the cloud tour was about. About the enterprise and about managed services. And it just reinforces that in the enterprise, we differentiate on being able to allow customers to get their competitive advantage by really tailoring software to their needs, both in the business network and in content services. We have those things that are more standard via SaaS, like core and our new e-signature offering and there are things even more standard, right that we're -- that's going to be at more volume through SMB.

But specifically to the question, the cloud tour was really about managed services. Having customers migrate from off-cloud to the OpenText Cloud. And we have thousands of customers today that run off-cloud and what we learned is continue to stay on your hybrid strategy and managed services has a big role in the OpenText future.

Daniel Jester -- Citi Bank -- Analyst

Great. Thank you. And then just a follow-up. One of the points you stressed a lot in your text today was about the durability of the business model and how the acquisition of Carbonite has made you more durable. Does that change how you view your balance sheet. You also sound pretty positive about the M&A environment. So given the increased durability of the business, would you look to deploy your balance sheet differently in the future. Thank you.

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. Thanks for the question. Our -- we were all about annual recurring revenues, whether it comes from the cloud or it comes from maintenance, right. And really, they both have similar durability, high longevity, high renewal rates, great margin. So it's cloud or very recurring maintenance. And that's what we like in the durability. Now it becomes as cloud grows and ARRs grows, the predictability of our business gets a little better every quarter. It gets more better if that's proper English every year, year-over-year. And you can see that percent increasing, just a few years ago we were in the mid to low 60s, we are in the mid 70s this year. We will creep up into the mid to high 70s next year. So we really like that predictability.

We're also a patient deployer of capital. We're sitting at about 2.3 times ratio. We will be back under 2 times in four to five quarters, but we're going to remain strategic. We're going to remain patient and right now over the next quarter to two the most value we can unlock is via the Carbonite integration. Getting Carbonite, Webroot integrated, getting them integrated into OpenText, initiating and completing our restructuring plan, growing their SMB channel, getting Europe up and running and getting a couple of wins in the OpenText enterprise and that's really where the most value we can unlock right now over the next one to two quarters.

Daniel Jester -- Citi Bank -- Analyst

Thank you very much.


Our next question comes from Richard Tse of National Bank Financial.

Richard Tse -- National Bank Financial -- Analyst

Yes. Thank you. I was wondering if we need to do anything with the prior portfolio to sell into the SMB channel. Obviously, it seems like Carbonite's bringing a pretty extent channel there and kind of curious to see whether you need to rejig the products in any way?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Richard, hey, it's Mark. Thanks for the question and thanks for joining the call. At present, working on the focus is to look at a handful of solutions that's currently in our portfolio and get greater distribution through the Carbonite channel. Take a couple of examples, a few examples. First is EnCase. We bring digital forensics to the enterprise. But the product is built for law enforcement organizations which look a lot like SMB organization. So in the first half of calendar '20 here, we got Carbonite focused on Carbonite. They'll then pickup EnCase and bring that into the SMB market. We also have EasyLink solutions, that have historically been as a portion of which is SMB oriented. So EnCase product ready to go. EasyLink ready to go. Hightail, I think will benefit as well from that channel. So, Phase 1 is the most value we can unlock is getting the Carbonite integration complete and getting that kind of well-established. Second, is to bring existing products that we have to the channel. And I think products as core and e-signature grow and mature, I think it'll be very natural fit for the high end of SMB and for the enterprise as well which would be a little more like Phase 3. Rich, I hope that's helpful.

Richard Tse -- National Bank Financial -- Analyst

That makes lot of sense. Thanks. So I guess maybe in a related question with respect to one initiatives you talked about your Investor Day in the fall in regards to targeting the Global 10,000. Can you may be give us a progress update in terms of where you are there?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. We don't have a specific count today, except to say that we expect to have our coverage doubled and I think near two-thirds of the G10K covered over the next 10 years. One piece of update I did provide today is, we put a new global account management team in place recently. And that team is fully in place, operational. We brought a couple of existing -- we recast, if you will some of our great internal talent, we went outside and brought some new talent in. We have a great leader Benoit out of Paris leading this group for us. And we're targeting our top 100 accounts and just giving those top 100 accounts a laser focus. One sort of account executive to manage all the opportunity across the General Motors for example or across British Petroleum as examples. So we're marching toward near 65% to 70% coverage over the next 2.5 years or so when we stated that goal. And one big step was putting that global account management team in place, which is now established.

Richard Tse -- National Bank Financial -- Analyst

Okay, great. And just one last quick one from me. There is no doubt you've got the capacity financially to do more acquisitions here. You have the capacity to do it from a management personnel perspective and maybe sort of what's your willingness to sort of do more acquisitions over the next 12 months considering that you just closed Carbonite?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. It's -- while the financial capacity is certainly there. We set up the integration of Carbonite and we take this as an opportunity to talk a bit about the integration of our new SMB consumer group and a little language, if you will. We think Carbonite's that was the public company, of course. We think of two strong -- three strong product lines here. Carbonite, Webroot and BrightCloud. Those are three product lines underneath the Carbonite banner. The enterprise team is unaffected by this integration. Craig's reporting to me directly, [Indecipherable], great engineer reporting into Muhi, and all the back offices are direct line integrated, HR to HR, finance to finance, legal to legal, IT to IT. So the enterprise team is unaffected by this, except that they're going to be more product to sell. So there is bandwidth on the enterprise side.

But right now over the next couple of months in quarter or 1.5 quarter, the greatest value we can do is to unlock those value plays inside of Carbonite, but well noted, we get the balance sheet. We continue to work top of pipeline. Companies tend to shed assets in environments like this. And I'll note that the enterprise team is really unaffected by Carbonite -- structurally unaffected by the acquisition and integration.

Richard Tse -- National Bank Financial -- Analyst

That's great. Thank you.


Our next question comes from Thanos Moschopoulos of BMO Capital Markets.

Thanos Moschopoulos -- BMO Capital Markets -- Analyst

Hi, good afternoon. Mark, with respect to the restructuring, you mentioned that part of it will be for streamlining the business outside of Carbonite. I thought you were already running quite a tight ship, so could you expand on what you'll be doing there?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yeah. It's -- I -- I've always appreciated the Snapple logo, which is the best things on earth, keep getting better. So we do run a tight ship as you well know, but we also need to challenge ourselves to keep getting better. And so the restructuring is sort of two parts. The first part is, completing the acquisition -- completing the integration of Carbonite, Webroot and integrating that into OpenText. Well studies, very thoughtful, we believe in quick integration and quick cost out and here we are in January, really 30 days, 35 days after the acquisition and we got our plans, defined and announced.

The other part of this is in looking at how we would integrate Carbonite into OpenText. We have some opportunities to leverage better our centers of excellence. Carbonite had outsourced parts of engineering in India, it outsourced support through a third party, and through that aperture we're able to scale up a little more India, Philippines, Canada through our centers of excellence, but took this as an opportunity to look across OpenText and complete some of those opportunities.

Thanos Moschopoulos -- BMO Capital Markets -- Analyst

Great. And then in terms of -- on the M&A front you established the portfolio group recently. I saw that you did a small tuck-in this quarter. Can you update us in terms of the pipeline, the smaller deals you're seeing and the cadence that we might see there?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. We're remiss to not mention our prepared remarks the Fax guys that we acquired. And that was a reseller of Fax business primarily in the US. Great style acquisition for us. A known entity, a good -- a small but solid add of new revenues. It will -- actually it's small, but it will exceed the corporate ROIC. It will have a high return on invested capital. And those are the type deals we're looking to do through OPG, other portfolio group. So they're building a very robust pipeline and we'll get OPG deals done here in calendar '20. So just watch the space, we'll get deals done here in OPG in fiscal '20 -- calendar '20.

Thanos Moschopoulos -- BMO Capital Markets -- Analyst

Thanks, Mark. I'll pass the line.


Our next question comes from Paul Treiber of RBC Capital Markets.

Paul Treiber -- RBC Capital Markets -- Analyst

Thanks again very much. Good afternoon. I was hoping you could follow up on your last comment, just on the integration plan for Carbonite. At a high level, how does the plan -- your game plan differ from prior acquisitions, particularly in light of the SMB and consumer channel that they have? And what do you see as the biggest opportunities and then potentially also the potential challenges that you may need to address with it?

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

Yes. Paul, thanks for the question. So three parts in there. The first is, perhaps how does this differ than previous integrations. So on the kind of supporting operations, finance, HR, IT, traditional back-office, it doesn't differ at all. It's straight line integration, functional integration. What's different is we are really keeping a go-to-market group together under Craig. And having him report to me directly. Our integration philosophy is really to integrate at the business unit level and to gain that go-to-market strength. So Craig's organization is a complete organization. They own their demand generation. They own their pre-sales. They own sales. They are going to own support as well, because support is deeply integrated into the process. So Craig's organization has a slightly wider scope and really owns that SMB and consumer go-to-market.

So coming out of the gate here we're going to keep the -- keep this more as a general management group business unit going-to-market. [Indecipherable] who is going to lead engineering is going to report directly into Muhi. And look we're serious about cyber resilience and we're serious about the edge and we're serious about SMB, and just like we did in content services we're over 25 years we've -- we completed near 60 acquisitions in the business network. We've completed near 15 acquisitions, and you can expect us to deploy capital and innovate in this group as well. So the plan is just slightly different. We're having a wider scope of responsibility with Craig as we set up the SMB Group.

Opportunity, there is opportunity to expand their OEM group in BrightCloud I'm very excited about and what that can bring. They're are just getting started in MSPs and RMMs. Roughly 16,000 out of a total market opportunity of 60,000 international expansion. And then a very select but high power value plays to bring into the enterprise, like data protection, file integrity and the OEM opportunity. Challenges. It's minimizing disruption and talent. We got a -- it's still a war on talent and we got to keep fighting for the best people and high retention rates.


This concludes time allocated for questions on today's conference call. I will now hand the call back over to Mr. Barrenechea for closing remarks.

Mark J. Barrenechea -- Vice Chair, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer

All right. Well, our prepared remarks were a longer than usual tonight, but we had a lot we wanted to communicate. So, Madhu and I thank you for joining our call this evening and hope you have a great evening. So thank you very much.

Madhu Ranganathan -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Yes. Thank you all.
