SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 10, 2012) - eGain Communications (NASDAQ: EGAN), a leading provider of cloud and on-site customer interaction software, today announced preliminary financial results for its fiscal 2013 first quarter ended September 30, 2012.
Fiscal First Quarter Selected Preliminary Financial Results:
- The company currently expects to report total revenue between $10.0 million and $10.5 million for the first quarter ending September 30, 2012
- The company currently expects to report new business mix of 94% new cloud (hosting) contracts and 6% new license and support contracts for the first quarter
- The company currently expects cloud revenues for the first quarter to increase 40% over the first quarter of fiscal 2012
Ashu Roy, eGain's CEO, commented, "We are pleased to report solid preliminary financial results for the fiscal first quarter. We saw continued significant demand for our cloud solutions, compared to our on-site solution -- a trend that was ahead of our expectations. During the quarter, we received a large cloud order from an existing on-site customer who is migrating its eGain products to our cloud solution. This order had a significant impact on our new business mix. While this shift to more cloud business has had a short term impact on our revenues, we are excited about the growing acceptance of our cloud offering, as it delivers a significant increase in revenue visibility for the remainder of this fiscal year and beyond. We plan to update our guidance on expected business mix for fiscal 2013 in our upcoming quarterly results conference call."
These results are based on preliminary information and are subject to change. The company plans to announce final first quarter fiscal 2013 results on November 6, 2012.
