eGain Announces Fiscal 2016 First Quarter Financial Results

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2015) -  eGain (NASDAQ: EGAN), the leading provider of cloud customer engagement solutions, today announced financial results for its fiscal 2016 first quarter ended September 30, 2015.

Ashu Roy, eGain's CEO, commented, "Our new cloud bookings this quarter were up more than 300% from a year ago and opportunities in the pipeline reflect our ongoing transition to the cloud. As expected, our top line was impacted by this transition, with a 64% decrease in on-premise license revenue in the quarter that drove a 20% decline in total revenue."

"We are pleased to promote Joe Brown to Head of Worldwide Sales, following the retirement of AJ Berkeley at the end of October. We want to thank AJ for his leadership and wish him well in retirement. Since joining eGain as the Head of North American sales in June, Joe has energized the team, attracted new talent and reorganized the salesforce to drive a land-and-expand sales strategy that we believe will drive tangible results in the coming quarters."

"We are thrilled with the response to our launch of cloud-based omnichannel analytics and knowledge personalization, two hot areas in customer engagement innovation, at our Digital Summit in Chicago in October. In addition to learning from thought leaders like Forrester and company experts on how to operationalize digital transformation in customer engagement, attendees in record numbers enjoyed hearing real success stories from our Fortune 500 clients like HCSC and Andersen Windows," Mr. Roy concluded.

Total GAAP revenue for the fiscal 2016 first quarter was $16.5 million, compared to $20.7 million in the prior year quarter.

Gross profit for the fiscal first quarter was $10.0 million, compared to $13.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2015. Gross margin for the fiscal first quarter was 61%, compared to 66% in the first quarter last year, attributable to the business mix. The subscription and support revenue gross margin for the fiscal first quarter was 72%, same as the prior fiscal first quarter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal first quarter was a net loss of $769,000, or a loss of $0.03 per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to adjusted EBITDA net income of $871,000, or $0.03 per share on a basic and diluted basis, for the first quarter of fiscal 2015.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The reported results include adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, defined as net income (loss), adjusted for the impact of purchase accounting adjustments to deferred revenue related to acquisitions, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, net, income tax provision, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses and severance and related charges. 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.
