Third Quarter Fiscal 2015 Financial Highlights:

"8x8's results for the third quarter of fiscal 2015 were once again strong with record revenue, increasing ARPU and continued profitability driven by the successful execution of our midmarket growth strategies," stated 8x8 CEO Vik Verma. "The investments we've made in customer support, sales engineering and product development, in particular, are differentiating us from the competition further and enabling us to excel in areas such as security, reliability, breadth of services, time to value and global availability. With the recent senior executive appointments of Enzo Signore as Chief Marketing Officer and Puneet Arora as Senior Vice President of Global Sales, our management team is now fully prepared to embrace the tremendous market opportunity we see ahead for the company."

Mr. Verma added, "We are maintaining our guidance for annual revenue growth of approximately 26% in fiscal 2015, and we continue to expect non-GAAP net income as a percentage of revenue in the 8-10% range for fiscal 2015."

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company's ongoing operational performance. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating 8x8's ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing financial results with other companies in the 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 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, gain on patent sale, gain on disposal of discontinued operations and management transition and gain on escrow settlement. We have excluded gain on patent sale and gain on disposal of discontinued operations and gain on escrow settlement because we consider these to have been isolated transactions and believe these are not reflective of our ongoing operations, and this reduces comparability of periodic operating results when these are 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 and management transition expenses 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.
