Selectica Announces Earnings for Third Quarter Fiscal 2013

Achieves 36% Total, 35% Recurring Revenue Growth Year-Over-Year

SAN MATEO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 -- Selectica, Inc. (NASDAQ: SLTC), provider of software that accelerates sales cycles and streamlines contract processes, today announced financial results for its third quarter of fiscal 2013, ended December 31, 2012.

"We are very pleased with our top line results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013," said Jason Stern, President and CEO of Selectica. "Both total and recurring revenue continued to climb, up 36% and 35% respectively over the third quarter of fiscal 2012. We've also completed more transactions -- and generated nearly as much revenue -- in the first three quarters of this year than we did in all four quarters of last year."

Financial highlights

Selectica delivered the following financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2013:

  • Recurring revenue: Selectica grew recurring revenue from $2.3 million in Q3 FY 2012 to $3.1 million in Q3 FY2013, a year-over-year increase of 35%. Recurring revenue in Q2 FY2013 was $3.0 million.

  • Billings: Billings for Q3 FY2013 were $4.2 million, compared to $4.5 million in Q3 FY2012, a 7% decrease year-over-year. Billings were $3.8 million in Q2 FY2013. The company defines billings, a non-GAAP financial measure, as revenue recognized during the period plus the change in deferred revenue from the beginning to the end of the period. Please refer to the financial tables below for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to GAAP.

  • Deferred revenue: In Q3 FY2013, the company had deferred revenue of $5.5 million, a 22% year-over-year increase from Q3 FY2012, when deferred revenue was $4.5 million. In Q2 FY2013, deferred revenue was $5.8 million.

Business highlights

Business highlights from Q3 FY2013 include:

  • New investment in headcount and partnerships: To meet the continued growth in demand for its contract management and guided selling solutions, Selectica further expanded its team in Q3 FY2013. By the end of the quarter, its U.S. workforce had increased by over 20% compared to the previous year, and its overseas team had doubled. In Q3 FY2013, the company also cemented new partnerships with several systems integrators and other solutions providers that further increase its capacity to get customers up and running on Selectica solutions quickly and successfully.
  • Key new executive team hires: In the third quarter of fiscal 2013, Selectica announced the addition of Mike Mothersbaugh as its Executive Vice President of Worldwide Sales and David Humphrey as its Vice President of Professional Services. With their previous experience, Mothersbaugh most recently at salesforce.com and Humphrey at Accruent, these new members of the executive team bring additional expertise in sales, delivery, and customer adoption, which are critical to the company's ongoing success as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution provider.
  • Golden Bridge Award honor: Selectica Guided Selling won Silver in the "Best New Product Or Service -- SaaS or Cloud Computing" category at the 4th annual Golden Bridge Awards held in October, reflecting a continuing trend of interest in configure-price-quote (CPQ) solutions in the market. The Golden Bridge Awards are an industry and peer recognition program honoring the best companies worldwide.

Additional results

Total revenues for Q3 FY2013 were $4.5 million, compared to $3.3 million for Q3 FY2012, a year-over-year increase of 36%. Total revenues were $4.7 million in Q2 FY2013.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Until recently, many organizations required specialized departments to perform mapping and geospatial analysis, and they used Esri on-premise solutions for that work. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Dave Peters, author of the Esri Press book Building a GIS, System Architecture Design Strategies for Managers, will discuss how Esri has successfully included the cloud as a fully integrated SaaS expansion of the ArcGIS mapping platform. Organizations that have incorporated Esri cloud-based applications and content within their business models are reaping huge benefits by directly leveraging cloud-based mapping and analysis capabilities within their existing enterprise investments. The ArcGIS mapping platform includes cloud-based content management and information resources to more widely, efficiently, and affordably deliver real-time actionable information and analysis capabilities to your organization.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Hinkle, Senior Director, Open Source Solutions at Citrix Systems Inc., will provide overview of the open source software that can be used to deploy and manage a cloud computing environment. He will include information on storage, networking(e.g., OpenDaylight) and compute virtualization (Xen, KVM, LXC) and the orchestration(Apache CloudStack, OpenStack) of the three to build their own cloud services. Speaker Bio: Mark Hinkle is the Senior Director, Open Source Solutions, at Citrix Systems Inc. He joined Citrix as a result of their July 2011 acquisition of Cloud.com where he was their Vice President of Community. He is currently responsible for Citrix open source efforts around the open source cloud computing platform, Apache CloudStack and the Xen Hypervisor.

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.
The cloud is everywhere and growing, and with it SaaS has become an accepted means for software delivery. SaaS is more than just a technology, it is a thriving business model estimated to be worth around $53 billion dollars by 2015, according to IDC. The question is – how do you build and scale a profitable SaaS business model? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Jason Cumberland, Vice President, SaaS Solutions at Dimension Data, will give the audience an understanding of common mistakes businesses make when transitioning to SaaS; how to avoid them; and how to build a profitable and scalable SaaS business.

Cloud computing started a technology revolution; now DevOps is driving that revolution forward. By enabling new approaches to service delivery, cloud and DevOps together are delivering even greater speed, agility, and efficiency. No wonder leading innovators are adopting DevOps and cloud together! In his session at DevOps Summit, Andi Mann, Vice President of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies, will explore the synergies in these two approaches, with practical tips, techniques, research data, war stories, case studies, and recommendations.
Enterprises require the performance, agility and on-demand access of the public cloud, and the management, security and compatibility of the private cloud. The solution? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Simone Brunozzi, VP and Chief Technologist(global role) for VMware, will explore how to unlock the power of the hybrid cloud and the steps to get there. He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
The 15th International Cloud Expo has just expanded its conference program, to bring together Cloud Computing, APM, APIs, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps and WebRTC at one location. Cloud Expo is the single show where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud. With cloud computing driving a higher percentage of enterprise IT budgets every year, it becomes increasingly important to learn about the latest technology developments and solutions.
