Interactive Intelligence Group Inc, a global provider of software and services designed to improve the customer experience, has announced financial results for the three and nine months ended Sept. 30, 2014.

interactive.intelligence.donald.brown.image.2014“This quarter showed further evidence of our success in generating more revenue from our cloud-based services,” said Dr. Donald E. Brown, Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO.

“Orders for our cloud solutions not only doubled from the same quarter last year, but moved from less than half to over two-thirds of our total orders received. This growth and shift to the cloud occurred across all of our major geographic markets, and was more prominent among sales to new customers compared to existing follow-on sales.

“We continue to deploy our cloud solutions for new customers, which will contribute to increasing cloud revenues. We expect that the first release of our new multi-tenant PureCloud solution this quarter will further accelerate this trend,” Brown concluded.

Nine Months Ended 2014 Financial Highlights:

Orders: Excluding the largest cloud-based order in the company’s history received during the second quarter of 2013, total orders increased by 34 percent and cloud-based orders were up 102 percent over the first nine months of 2013. Including this large cloud-based order, total orders increased 6 percent and cloud-based orders were up 24 percent. Cloud-based orders represented 61 percent of total orders during the first nine months of 2014. In this same period, 129 orders were signed over $250,000, including 31 orders over $1 million.

Revenues: Total revenues were $248.8 million, an increase of 9 percent over the first nine months of 2013. Recurring revenues increased 28 percent to $136.1 million and accounted for 55 percent of total revenues. Cloud-based revenues increased 76 percent to $41.6 million. Product revenues were $72.2 million, down 13 percent, and services revenues were $40.5 million, up 6 percent compared to the first nine months of 2013.

Operating Income (Loss): GAAP operating loss was $(19.8) million for the first nine months of 2014, compared to GAAP operating income of $7.9 million over the same period last year. Non-GAAP operating loss was $(7.1) million for the first nine months of 2014, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $16.7 millionduring the same period last year.

The year-over-year decline was primarily due to lower than anticipated product revenues, combined with increased sales and marketing expenses to capture cloud market share, and increased research and development expenses to accelerate time-to-market of PureCloud.

Net Income (Loss): GAAP net loss for the first nine months of 2014 was $(11.5) million, or $(0.55) per diluted share based on 20.9 million weighted average shares outstanding, compared to GAAP net income for the same period in 2013 of $6.0 million, or $0.29 per diluted share based on 21.0 million weighted average diluted shares outstanding. GAAP net income for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2013 included an income tax benefit primarily driven by a change in transfer pricing implemented during the second quarter of 2013.

Non-GAAP net loss for the first nine months of 2014 was $(3.8) million, or $(0.18) per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $11.1 million, or $0.53 per diluted share during the same period in 2013.
