A reconciliation of non-GAAP and GAAP results is included in the financial tables below.

Management Commentary

"In the first quarter, we saw increased interest in our BroadCloud capabilities as service providers seek to rapidly deliver new unified communications services to their end-users," said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. "We were very pleased to announce that BT Wholesale will be leveraging our new investment in BroadCloud in Europe. We also signed a new Tier-1 customer for BroadCloud for a new small-business service launch, again demonstrating the continued interest in this capability. In the quarter, our international business continued to show momentum, as indicated by our announcement with Telecom Italia on a new service targeted at mid-to-large enterprises in Italy."

"We had a solid start to 2014 with continued momentum, especially in our cloud SaaS business and internationally," said Jim Tholen, chief financial officer, BroadSoft. "We are excited about our hosted Unified Communications market opportunity and reiterate our full year revenue and earnings outlook."

Guidance

For the second quarter of 2014, BroadSoft anticipates revenue of $48 to $52 million. The Company also expects to achieve earnings on a non-GAAP basis of $0.17 to $0.31 per diluted common share. For the full year 2014, BroadSoft continues to expect revenue of $206 to $212 million and earnings on a non-GAAP basis of $1.26 to $1.46 per diluted common share.

BroadSoft has provided in this release, and will provide on this morning's teleconference, financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. BroadSoft uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating BroadSoft's ongoing operational performance. BroadSoft's management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and manage its business and believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company's performance by excluding certain non-cash expenses, and may include additional adjustments for items that are infrequent in nature. BroadSoft believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in BroadSoft's industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and to be discussed on this morning's teleconference to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is set forth below.

Non-GAAP financial measures:

Non-GAAP net income and net income per share. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP net income as net income plus stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense for acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense on the Company's convertible notes, and non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding. BroadSoft considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful metrics for management and investors because they exclude the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare BroadSoft's core business operating results over multiple periods.

Non-GAAP gross profit, license gross profit, subscription and maintenance support gross profit, and professional services and other gross profit. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP gross profit to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and its investors can compare BroadSoft's sales margins over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP gross profit between license, subscription and maintenance support and professional services and other, the Company adds back the stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense, as applicable, to the related gross profit.

Non-GAAP license cost of revenue, subscription and maintenance support cost of revenue, and professional services and other cost of revenue. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP cost of revenue as cost of revenue less stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP cost of revenue to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and its investors can compare BroadSoft's cost of revenue over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP cost of revenue between license, subscription and maintenance support and professional services and other, the Company subtracts the stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense, as applicable, to the related cost of revenue.

Non-GAAP income from operations. BroadSoft defines non-GAAP income from operations as income from operations plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. BroadSoft considers non-GAAP income from operations to be a useful metric for management and investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare BroadSoft's core business operating results over multiple periods. Where BroadSoft provides further breakdown of non-GAAP operating expenses for sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative, the Company deducts stock-based compensation expense included in the applicable expense item.

Billings. BroadSoft defines billings as revenue plus the net change in our deferred revenue balance for a particular period. BroadSoft believes that billings are a key measure of our business activity.

With respect to our expectations under "Guidance" above, and regarding certain of the projections discussed on this morning's teleconference, reconciliation of both non-GAAP earnings per share guidance, and of projections regarding non-GAAP cost of sales and non-GAAP operating expenses in the second quarter of 2014, to the closest corresponding GAAP measures is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and effects of non-cash income taxes, which are extremely difficult to project as a result of our tax status in a number of foreign jurisdictions, and stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

The presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income from operations, billings and other non-GAAP financial measures in this release and on this morning's teleconference is not meant to be a substitute for "net income," "net income per share," "gross margin," "income from operations" or other financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with such data. BroadSoft's definition of "non-GAAP net income," "non-GAAP net income per share," "non-GAAP gross margin," "non-GAAP income from operations," "billings" and other non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies and may differ from period to period. In reporting non-GAAP measures in the future, management may make other adjustments for expenses and gains it does not consider reflective of core operating performance in a particular period and may modify "non-GAAP net income," "non-GAAP net income per share," "non-GAAP gross margin," "non-GAAP income from operations," "billings" and such other non-GAAP measures by excluding these expenses and gains.

* For the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the non-GAAP net income per diluted common share calculation included the dilutive effect of stock-based awards on the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding (such stock-based awards were not reflected in the corresponding GAAP diluted share calculations, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive as a result of the net losses for these periods). Total diluted weighted average common shares outstanding used for calculating non-GAAP net income per diluted common share were 29,747 thousand and 28,639 thousand for the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
