SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2015) - eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN)

  • Fourth quarter non-GAAP revenue of $17.1 million, compared to $18.9 million in the year ago quarter
  • Fiscal 2015 full year non-GAAP revenue of $76.3 million, up 9% from fiscal 2014
  • Fourth quarter new cloud bookings 57% of total new bookings, up from 25% in the preceding quarter

eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN), the leading provider of cloud customer engagement solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2015 fourth quarter and full year ended June 30, 2015.

Ashu Roy, eGain's CEO, commented, "Fiscal 2015 was a transformative year for eGain. We launched a new simplified cloud-ready product suite and organized our services team to rapidly deliver cloud solutions with best-practice guidance. Building on this foundation, our recently announced eGain Try+Buy program is being received enthusiastically by enterprise clients looking for guidance to quick value in their digital customer engagement initiatives. In fiscal 2016, we intend to only sell cloud solutions to new clients through our direct sales team, a move that puts us firmly on the path to becoming a cloud business.

"As we previously announced, our fourth quarter and full year revenue fell below our guidance, due to lower than expected license revenue. However, our recurring revenue was within our guidance range and overall bookings grew a solid 26% over the prior year. Looking ahead to fiscal 2016, we expect a significant shift to new cloud bookings as enterprise clients increasingly opt for digital innovation at speed in the eGain Cloud."

Non-GAAP results are presented for supplemental informational purposes only and should not be considered a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. eGain's management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the company's performance to that of prior periods for trend analyses, and for budgeting and planning purposes. eGain believes that 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 the company's financial measures with other software companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors, and that it allows for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. Reconciliation tables of the most comparable GAAP financial measures to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are included with the financial tables at the end of this release. eGain urges investors to review the reconciliation and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the company's business.
