"I am pleased to announce another outstanding quarter marked by solid revenue and profit growth alongside increased gross margins which we expect will continue to improve as a result of the operational efficiencies of our cloud-based, monthly recurring revenue business model," said 8x8 Chairman & CEO Bryan Martin.

Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Operating Metrics and Other Business Highlights:

  • Average monthly revenue per business customer was $256, compared with $207 in the same period last year and $250 in the prior quarter.

  • Ended the quarter with 30,498 business customers, up from 29,913 business customers in the prior quarter; net company additions for the quarter were affected by the departure of approximately 400 'one-number access' customers representing approximately $9,000 per month in recurring revenue that were previously acquired in 2008 from Avtex Solutions.

"Our operating metrics for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 demonstrate the continued adoption of a greater number of 8x8 services by both small and mid-market customers, many of whom have multiple geographic locations and mobile workforces that are no longer served or supported by legacy premise-based or hybrid approaches," Martin continued. "According to recent Frost & Sullivan data, 84% of companies have remote workers who spend at least 25% of their time away from their desks. To support this growing trend, we have significantly enhanced our core Virtual Office hosted PBX offering with upgraded smartphone and tablet apps that extend the communications capabilities and productivity advantages of our services onto the most popular telephony, video and mobile devices used in today's business environments. We look forward to delivering these and other new applications as the business communications market continues to evolve."

Non-GAAP Measures

We have provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). We use these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believe they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating our ongoing operational performance. We believe that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating our ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing our financial results with other companies in our industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures below. A reconciliation of our non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included below in this press release.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share

We have defined non-GAAP net income as net income for GAAP plus loss on investment, non-cash tax adjustments, stock-based compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs, facility exit costs and gain on patent sale. We have excluded loss on a strategic investment in another company and gain on patent sale because we consider these to be isolated transactions and believe these are not reflective of our ongoing operations. Non-cash tax adjustments represent the differences between the amount of taxes we expect to pay and our GAAP tax provision each period. We have excluded stock-based compensation expense because it relies on valuations based on future events, such as the market price of our common stock, that are difficult to predict and are affected by market factors that are largely not within the control of management. Amortization of acquired intangible assets is excluded because it is a non-cash expense that we do not consider part of ongoing operations when assessing our financial performance, as it relates to accounting for certain purchased assets. We have excluded acquisition-related expenses, including expenses to exit facilities, because these expenses are difficult to predict and are often one-time. We define non-GAAP net income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted-average diluted shares outstanding. We define non-GAAP net income percentage of revenue as non-GAAP net income divided by revenue. The GAAP and non-GAAP weighted average number of diluted shares to calculate GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share are the same. We believe that such exclusions facilitate comparisons to our historical operating results and to the results of other companies in the same industry, and provides investors with information that we use in evaluating management's performance on a quarterly and annual basis.

Management will host a conference call to discuss these results and other matters related to the Company's business today, October 24, 2012, at 4:30 p.m. EDT. The call is accessible via the following numbers and webcast links:
