Second quarter revenue was $55.0 million, an increase of 23% over revenue of $44.5 million in the second quarter last year. The increase in revenue reflects a combination of contributions from acquisitions, the positive impact of foreign exchange and organic growth.

Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter was $13.9 million or $0.52 per diluted share compared to $10.7 million or $0.40 per diluted share in last year's second quarter. Results from operating activities for the quarter were $12.5 million compared to $9.7 million in the prior year's second quarter, an increase of 29% over the prior year. Net income for the quarter was $6.6 million or $0.24 per diluted share compared to the prior year's second quarter net income of $4.9 million or $0.19 per share.

On a year to date basis, revenue was $102.4 million for the year compared to $86.5 million last year, an increase of 18%, while net income was $12.7 million or $0.47 per diluted share compared to $8.3 million or $0.32 per diluted share, an increase of 53%. Adjusted EBITDA was $26.0 million or $0.97 per diluted share compared to $20.3 million or $0.77 per diluted share last year.

Operating expenses increased to $26.3 million from $22.3 million in the prior year's second quarter and include incremental operating costs related to acquisitions, foreign exchange and special charges of $0.8 million related to restructuring of acquired operations.

Enghouse closed the quarter with $101.0 million in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $90.3 million at October 31, 2013.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures to assess its operating performance. Securities regulations require that companies caution readers that earnings and other measures adjusted to a basis other than GAAP do not have standardized meanings and are unlikely to be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Accordingly, they should not be considered in isolation. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of operating performance. Therefore, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as income before income taxes adjusted for depreciation of property, plant and equipment, amortization of acquired software and customer relationships, finance income, finance expenses, other income, and special charges for acquisition related restructuring costs. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate operating performance as it excludes amortization of software and intangibles (which is an accounting allocation of the cost of software and intangible assets arising on acquisition), any impact of finance and tax related activities, asset depreciation, other income and restructuring costs primarily related to acquisitions.

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
Deploying applications in hybrid cloud environments is hard work. Your team spends most of the time maintaining your infrastructure, configuring dev/test and production environments, and deploying applications across environments – which can be both time consuming and error prone. But what if you could automate provisioning and deployment to deliver error free environments faster? What could you do with your free time?

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.
It’s 2016: buildings are smart, connected and the IoT is fundamentally altering how control and operating systems work and speak to each other.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
