8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a provider of cloud-based unified communications, contact center and collaboration solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 ended June 30, 2014.
First Quarter Fiscal 2015 Financial Results:
- Total revenue for the quarter increased 30% year-over-year to a record $37.9 million.

- Average monthly service revenue per business customer was $293, up 11% compared with $263 in the same period last year.
“8x8 delivered a very strong quarter with profitable 30% revenue growth driven largely by the continued adoption of our services by mid-market and distributed enterprise customers,” said 8x8 CEO Vik Verma. “With a 94% year-over-year increase in new mid-market and channel sales and 41% of our service revenues coming from the mid-market, 8x8 is clearly expanding its leadership position in this valuable market segment.”

Additional First Quarter Results:
- GAAP net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2015 was $8,000, or $0.00 per diluted share, compared with GAAP net income of $2.1 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.

On July 22, 2014, 8x8's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to an aggregate of $15.0 million of our Common Stock. The repurchases may be made from time to time on the open market at prevailing market prices or in negotiated transactions off the market. The repurchase program is expected to continue until July 22, 2015, unless extended or shortened by the Board of Directors.
8x8 also reported, in accordance with NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(c)(4), that employment inducement awards were granted to 26 new employees in connection with their recent hiring. The employees received restrictive stock units for 136,769 shares of the Company's Common Stock, subject to their continued employment and other conditions. In addition, stock option grants for 96,684 shares were awarded.
The Company has provided in this release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing our financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company’s ongoing operational performance. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating 8x8’s ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing financial results with other companies in the 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 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 non-cash tax adjustments, stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangible assets. 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 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.
