Revenues increased 19 percent; GAAP operating income up 65 percent
Interactive Intelligence (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of unified IP business communications solutions, has announced operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2010.
The company reported revenues of $35.0 million, an increase of 19 percent compared to revenues for the first quarter of 2009; product revenues increased by 20 percent, while services revenues were up 18 percent compared to the first quarter of 2009.
On a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, net income was $1.9 million, with diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.10, compared to $1.2 million, or EPS of $0.07, in the first quarter of 2009. Net income on a non-GAAP basis was $4.1 million, with EPS of $0.22, compared to $2.9 million, or EPS of $0.16, for the same quarter last year.
Cash and investment balances as of March 31, 2010 increased to $71.4 million with no debt.
“We had strong year-over-year order growth across all major geographies,” said Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO, Dr. Donald E. Brown. “These orders included significant new communications-as-a-service contracts. Revenues recognised from CaaS continued to build and contributed to our increase in services revenues. Our new Interaction Process Automation™ application was also a key differentiator for us in the marketplace, as it directly connects our communications platform to a customer’s operational efficiency and profitability.”
Additional first quarter operating results included:
- An increase in gross margins to 70.3 percent in 2010 from 69.4 percent in 2009.
- GAAP operating income of $4.0 million in 2010, up 65 percent from $2.4 million in 2009.
- Non-GAAP operating income of $5.0 million in 2010, compared to $3.3 million in 2009.
- Other expense of $733,000 in 2010, compared to $316,000 in 2009, reflecting foreign currency translation losses in both years. The amounts held in Euro deposit accounts were transferred to U.S. dollar deposit accounts in early February 2010, reducing future exposure to Euro currency fluctuations.
- Cash flows from operations, which were reduced by $1.3 million related to tax expense for stock-based payments, still increased to $5.3 million in 2010, compared to $4.4 million in 2009.
