8x8, Inc. Announces Financial Results for First Quarter Fiscal 2014

Jul 24, 2013

Record Quarterly Revenue of $30 million; Non-GAAP Earnings Per Diluted Share of $0.06; Revenue from Business Customers Increases 22%

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ: EGHT), provider of innovative cloud communications and computing solutions, today announced operating results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 ended June 30, 2013.

The company posted total record revenue of $30 million for its first fiscal quarter ending June 30, 2013. GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the quarter increased 27% year over year to $4.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share.

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

"First and foremost, I am pleased to report that the 22% growth in business revenue we saw in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 has led to the achievement of another revenue milestone with the posting of $30 million in revenue for the quarter," said 8x8 Chairman & CEO Bryan Martin. "In addition, our average monthly service revenue per business customer increased sequentially by $5 to a new high of $268, and business customers now generate 98% of total revenue."

Martin continued, "On top of this strong revenue growth, 8x8 recorded its lowest customer churn in history this quarter of 1.4%. All of the churn reduction initiatives we've put in place have started to produce the results we've been expecting and our customer satisfaction surveys are reflecting this trend."

Additional First Quarter Business Metrics:

Non-GAAP Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share

We have defined non-GAAP net income as net income for GAAP plus non-cash tax adjustments, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, facility exit costs and gain on patent sale. We have excluded gain on patent sale because we consider it to have been an isolated transaction and believe it is not reflective of our ongoing operations, and this reduces the comparability of periodic operating results when it is included. Non-cash tax adjustments represent the differences between the amount of taxes we expect to pay and our GAAP tax provision each period. We have excluded stock-based compensation expense because it relies on valuations based on future events, such as the market price of our common stock, that are difficult to predict and are affected by market factors that are largely not within the control of management. Amortization of acquired intangible assets is excluded because it is a non-cash expense that we do not consider part of ongoing operations when assessing our financial performance, as it relates to accounting for certain purchased assets. We have excluded acquisition-related expenses, including expenses to exit facilities, because these expenses are difficult to predict and are often one-time. We define non-GAAP net income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. We define non-GAAP net income percentage of revenue as non-GAAP net income divided by revenue. The GAAP and non-GAAP weighted average number of diluted shares to calculate GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share are the same. We believe that such exclusions facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results and to the results of other companies in the same industry, and provides investors with information that we use in evaluating management's performance on a quarterly and annual basis.
