  • License revenue was $1.7 million, down from $2.4 million in the same quarter a year ago, as the company continued its transition to a SaaS based business
  • Gross margin increased to 66%, compared to 61% in the year ago quarter
  • GAAP net loss improved to $2.4 million, or $0.09 per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to a GAAP net loss of $3.2 million, or a loss of $0.12 per share on a basic and diluted basis, for the year ago quarter

  • Cash flow generated from operations in the first quarter improved to $2.4 million, compared to cash flow used in operations of $5.6 million in the year ago quarter
  • New subscription ACV (non-GAAP), which is the annualized value of new cloud and term license contractual obligations signed in the quarter, was $1.9 million, up 63% year over year (82% on a constant currency basis)
  • New subscription and support ACV (non-GAAP), which is the annualized value of new cloud, support and term license contractual obligations signed in the quarter, was $2.1 million, up 15% year over year (30% on a constant currency basis)

Ashu Roy, eGain CEO, commented, "We are pleased with the continued acceleration in our shift to a SaaS based business model. As a result, during the quarter we saw a decrease in license revenue, reflecting our business mix shift to a SaaS model."

Eric Smit, eGain CFO, added, "As we successfully transition to a SaaS based business, we drove significant year-over-year improvement in gross margin and net loss in the first quarter. Despite the reduction in quarterly revenue, we achieved breakeven on an adjusted EBITDA basis and generated significant improvement in our cash flow from operations in the first quarter compared to the prior year."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
These reported results include Annual Contract Value (ACV), Constant Currency and Adjusted EBITDA as supplemental information relating to our operating results. Adjusted EBITDA is 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 (benefit), amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses and severance and related charges. We define ACV as being the annualized value of new cloud and term license contractual obligations signed in the quarter. Constant currency growth rates presented are derived from converting the current period results for entities reporting in currencies other than U.S. Dollars into U.S. Dollars at the exchange rates in effect during the prior period presented rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. 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.
