SALT LAKE CITY – August 6, 2015 – inContact, Inc., the leading provider of cloud contact center software and contact center optimization tools, today reported record financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

Said Paul Jarman, inContact CEO, “In Q2, we again grew revenues at a very strong pace. Customer deployments were solid across our entire product spectrum, including core ACD/IVR, our Personal Connection™ predictive dialer and WFO software for companies of all sizes. We continue to win the majority of competitive opportunities, and we have added landmark new customers in healthcare, insurance and state and local government. During the quarter, we closed 127 total contracts including 74 new logo customers and 53 expansion deals with existing customers. Two of the expansions were with Fortune 100 companies.”

Continued Jarman, “SaaS bookings were 3% above year ago results, and at a record level for a June quarter. Recent contract activity and the addition of new partners such as RingCentral and others, give us great confidence in our sales pipeline, leading to an increase in 2015 guidance for both software and total revenues.”

Software segment revenue totaled $34.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, an increase of 41% from $24.2 million in Q2 2014. Combined Software and Software-related Network connectivity revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $51.0 million, an increase of 32% from $38.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Approximately 89% of Network connectivity segment revenues were derived from contracts with customers utilizing our contact center software.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $1.4 million versus $89,000 during the same period in 2014. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure management believes provides important insight into our operating results (see reconciliation of non-GAAP measures below).

Increased Revenue Guidance for 2015

In 2015, we anticipate consolidated revenues to be between $211 million and $214 million for the full year. We expect total software revenues to be between $135 million and $138 million for the full year. This would represent 34% to 37% growth for software revenues.

Jarman concluded, “We are continuing to lead in the cloud contact center market with our expanding partner channel, our continuing innovation in our comprehensive cloud solution, and in our specialized service model. The Q3 sales pipeline is strong with several major deals already closed, and we continue to have a lead advantage against competitors. inContact is the leading pure play cloud provider driving the most cloud revenue in the industry.”

SEGMENT REPORTING

We operate under two business segments: Software and Network connectivity (formerly “Telecom”). The Software segment includes all monthly recurring revenue related to the delivery of our software applications, plus the associated professional services and setup fees and revenue related to quarterly minimum purchase commitments through July 2014, from a related party reseller. The Network connectivity segment includes all voice and data long distance services provided to customers.

 

For segment reporting, we classify operating expenses as either “direct” or “indirect.” Direct expense refers to costs attributable solely to either selling and marketing efforts or research and development efforts. Indirect expense refers to costs that management considers to be overhead in running the business. Management evaluates expenditures for both selling and marketing and research and development efforts at the segment level without the allocation of overhead expenses, such as rent, utilities and depreciation on property and equipment.

Operating segment revenues and profitability for the three months ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 were as follows (in thousands):

RECONCILIATION of NON-GAAP MEASURES:

“Adjusted EBITDA” is Earnings Before deductions for Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization and Stock-Based Compensation. “Gross Margin Before deductions for Depreciation and Amortization and Stock-Based Compensation” is Gross Margin before deductions for Depreciation and Amortization and Stock-Based Compensation. Neither are measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). Adjusted EBITDA and Gross Margin Before deductions for Depreciation and Amortization and Stock-Based Compensation are provided for the use of the reader in understanding our operating results and are not prepared in accordance with, nor does it serve as an alternative to GAAP measures and may be materially different from similar measures used by other companies. While not a substitute for information prepared in accordance with GAAP, management believes that this information is helpful for investors to more easily understand our operating financial performance. Management also believes these measures may better enable an investor to form views of our potential financial performance in the future. These measures have limitations as analytical tools, and investors should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results prepared in accordance with GAAP.
