INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (NAS: ININ) , a global provider of unified IP business communications software and services, has announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013.

"During the first quarter of 2013, we had solid order growth in all our geographies and booked twice as many orders greater than $250,000 as we did in the first quarter last year," said Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO, Dr. Donald Brown. "Our year-over-year revenue growth further highlights our ongoing traction with some of the world's largest global companies as they adopt our technology with on-premises deployments or by joining the move to the cloud. The rapid growth of our cloud-based orders and revenues continued to enhance the scale of our overall recurring revenues. We will continue to make those investments that drive growth in market share, particularly with our cloud-based offering, which remains the highest growth segment of our market."


Brown added: "We remain committed to innovation and extending our product capabilities, as evidenced by the recent launch of our cloud-based product for small contact centers. Looking forward, we are confident in our long-term strategy to expand our cloud business, thereby increasing our recurring revenues and consistently gaining market share. Based on our strong global pipeline, we are maintaining our 2013 total order growth forecast of 20 percent, with cloud-based orders expected to represent approximately half of total orders."

Non-GAAP Measures

The non-GAAP measures shown in this release include revenue which was not recognized on a GAAP basis due to purchase accounting adjustments and exclude non-cash stock-based compensation expense, the amortization of certain intangible assets related to acquisitions by the company and non-GAAP income tax expense. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with the financial information included in this press release. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Stock-based compensation expense and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions are non-cash and non-GAAP income tax expense is pro forma based on non-GAAP earnings. Management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP results, when shown in conjunction with corresponding GAAP measures, provides useful information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends related to the company's results of operations. Further, management believes that these non-GAAP measures improve management's and investors' ability to compare the company's financial performance with other companies in the technology industry. Because stock-based compensation expense, non-GAAP income tax expense amounts and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions can vary significantly between companies, it is useful to compare results excluding these amounts. Management also uses financial statements that exclude stock-based compensation expense, non-GAAP income tax amounts and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions for its internal budgets.

Forward Looking Statements

This release may contain certain forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially are the following: rapid technological changes in the industry; the company's ability to maintain profitability; to manage successfully its growth; to manage successfully its increasingly complex third-party relationships resulting from the software and hardware components being licensed or sold with its solutions; to maintain successful relationships with certain suppliers which may be impacted by the competition in the technology industry; to maintain successful relationships with its current and any new partners; to maintain and improve its current products; to develop new products; to protect its proprietary rights adequately; to successfully integrate acquired businesses; and other factors described in the company's SEC filings, including the company's latest annual report on Form 10-K.
