SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), the leading provider of Enterprise Communications as a Service (ECaaS), today reported record financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 ended June 30, 2016.

First Quarter Fiscal 2017 Financial Highlights:

"8x8's fiscal 2017 is off to a great start with a 25% year-over-year increase in total revenue to a record $60 million, driven largely by the continued adoption of our global cloud communications and collaboration services by midmarket and enterprise customers," said 8x8 CEO Vik Verma. "The move to the cloud for enterprise communications is no longer a matter of if but when, and I'm very pleased with the progress we've made establishing 8x8 as the premiere provider of the industry's most secure, reliable and integrated pure-cloud solutions available."

Additional First Quarter and Year-to-Date Highlights:

8x8 reaffirmed its guidance for fiscal 2017 of annual revenue of $249.0 million to $253.0 million and full year non-GAAP net income in the range of $16.0 million to $20.0 million, representing non-GAAP net income as a percent of revenue of 6.5% to 8.0%.

8x8 also announced that on July 18, 2016, it awarded 29 new employees restricted stock units (RSUs) representing an aggregate of 145,940 shares of the Company's common stock, and an option to purchase 36,160 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $15.18 under the 8x8 "2013 New Employee Inducement Incentive Plan." These equity awards were approved by the 8x8 Board of Directors Compensation Committee and were granted as an inducement to the new employees entering into employment with 8x8, in accordance with Nasdaq Market Place Rule 5635(c)(4).

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. This reconciliation 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, and acquisition-related costs. Non-cash tax adjustments represent the difference 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 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.
