eGain Announces Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- eGain Communications (NASDAQ: EGAN)

  • Quarterly cloud software revenue up 14% sequentially and 42% year-over-year
  • Deferred revenue of $11.2 million up 59% year-over-year
  • Unbilled deferred revenue of $21.8 million up 148% year-over-year
  • Quarterly new business mix of 94% cloud contracts and 6% license contracts
  • eGain reiterates guidance for fiscal year 2013 cloud revenue growth of 40%
  • eGain reiterates guidance for fiscal year 2013 revenue growth of between 20% and 25%

eGain Communications (NASDAQ: EGAN), a leading provider of multichannel customer engagement solutions, today announced results for its fiscal 2013 first quarter ended September 30, 2012.

"We are pleased with the business momentum we achieved in the first quarter," said Ashu Roy, eGain's CEO. "We saw strong demand for our cloud solutions, which comprised 94% of new contracts during the quarter."

"Our cloud revenue for the quarter is up 42% year-over-year. Based upon first quarter bookings and our current pipeline, we now expect our business mix for fiscal 2013 to be 70% new cloud contracts and 30% new license contracts versus our prior outlook of 60% new cloud contracts and 40% new license contracts. Even with this secular mix shift in our new bookings from on-premise to cloud, which would typically delay revenue recognition, we are reiterating our annual guidance of 20% to 25% total revenue growth. We are especially pleased with performance for the quarter in light of it historically being a seasonally slow period for new sales."

Fiscal 2013 First Quarter Results:

Revenue: Total revenue for the fiscal first quarter was $10.7 million, compared to $10.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. License revenue for the fiscal first quarter was $713,000, compared to $2.9 million for the first quarter last year. Recurring revenue for the fiscal first quarter was $7.2 million, an increase of 24% on a year-over-year basis. Cloud software revenue was $3.7 million, an increase of 42% on a year-over-year basis. Professional services revenue for the fiscal first quarter was $2.8 million, an increase of 65% on a year-over-year basis. The significant increase in professional services was driven by a number of large customer deployments.

Gross Profit: Gross profit for the fiscal first quarter was $6.3 million, compared to $7.6 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2012. Gross margin for the fiscal first quarter was 59%, compared to 73% in the first quarter last year. The recurring revenue gross margin for the fiscal first quarter increased to 81%, compared to 78% in the first quarter last year.

Earnings per Share: Net loss for the fiscal first quarter was $2.9 million, or a loss of $0.12 per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to net income of $516,000, or $0.02 per share on a basic and diluted basis, for the first quarter of last year. Effective this quarter, we made a voluntary change to our accounting policy for sales commissions related to non-cancellable cloud contracts, which resulted in a net decrease in commission expense of approximately $544,000 and a net increase of approximately $58,000 in the first quarter last year. Net loss for the fiscal first quarter included stock-based compensation expense of $304,000 and interest and tax expense of $214,000, compared to stock-based compensation expense of $130,000 and interest and tax expense of $206,000 in the first quarter last year.

Cash: Total cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash increased to $11.3 million at September 30, 2012, up from $10.9 million at June 30, 2012. Cash provided by operations was $824,000 for the fiscal first quarter, compared to cash provided by operations of $4.3 million for the first quarter of last year.

Deferred Revenue:
Deferred revenue increased 59% to $11.2 million at September 30, 2012, compared to $7.0 million at September 30, 2011. Unbilled deferred revenue, representing business that is contracted but not yet invoiced or collected and off balance sheet, was approximately $21.8 million, at September 30, 2012 up 148% from approximately $8.8 million at September 30, 2011.

Fiscal 2013 Guidance: Based upon first quarter bookings and the current pipeline eGain now expects the business mix for fiscal 2013 to be 70% new cloud contracts and 30% new license contracts. eGain reiterates it fiscal 2013 guidance of total revenue growth of between 20% and 25% and annual cloud revenue growth of 40%.
