“Our fourth-quarter orders were very strong from both new and existing customers, with good contributions from North America, Europe and Australia,” said Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO, Dr. Donald E. Brown. “Particularly impressive was the increase in the number of our transactions of $250,000 or more, which jumped from 19 in the fourth quarter of 2009 to 31 in the fourth quarter of 2010. While order activity propelled product revenue growth, recurring revenues increased significantly as well. Services revenue growth was also notable.
“For the year we recorded a 25% increase in product orders from both new and existing customers, and a 150 percent-plus increase in our cloud-based orders,” Brown said. “We more than doubled the number of $1 million orders, from nine in 2009 to 19 in 2010, and the number of orders over $250,000, from 55 to 90. We plan to build on this momentum by continuing to focus on moving up-market,” Brown said.
For the fourth quarter of 2010, net income on a generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis was $7.1 million, with diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.37, compared to net income of $2.5 million, with EPS of $0.14 in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net income on a non-GAAP* basis for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $10.4 million, with EPS of $0.54, compared to non-GAAP net income of $5.1 million and EPS of $0.28 in the fourth quarter of 2009.
For the fourth quarter of 2010, non-GAAP net income and EPS exclude purchase accounting-related adjustments of $388,000, or EPS of $0.02, charges for stock-based compensation of $974,000, or EPS of $0.05, and non-cash income tax expense of approximately $2.0 million, or EPS of $0.10. For the fourth quarter of 2009, non-GAAP net income and EPS exclude purchase accounting-related adjustments of $58,000, charges for stock-based compensation of $775,000, or EPS of $0.04, and non-cash income tax expense of $1.8 million, or EPS of $0.10.
Net income for 2010 on a GAAP basis was $14.9 million, with EPS of $0.79, compared to net income of $8.6 million, with EPS of $0.47 in 2009. Net income on a non-GAAP basis was $26.5 million, with EPS of $1.40, compared to non-GAAP net income of $18.2 million, and EPS of $1.00 in 2009.
For the full year of 2010, non-GAAP net income and EPS exclude purchase accounting-related adjustments of $475,000, or EPS of $0.03, charges for stock-based compensation of $4.0 million, or EPS of $0.21, and non-cash income tax expense of approximately $7.2 million, or EPS of $0.38. For 2009, non-GAAP net income and EPS exclude purchase accounting-related adjustments of $232,000, or EPS of $0.01, charges for stock-based compensation of $3.3 million, or EPS of $0.18, and non-cash income tax expense of $6.0 million, or EPS of $0.34.
“Looking forward, we see a healthy pipeline of business,” Brown said. “We expect 2011 revenues to be boosted by the next major release of our flagship all-in-one IP communications software suite, which is due for general availability in the first half of the year. We anticipate growth in our cloud-based orders, with increases in both recurring and services revenues. We currently expect total revenues for 2011 to increase by at least 20%, moving past the $200 million mark.
“Our growth strategy calls for continued investment in our cloud-based infrastructure, as well as research and development, and sales and marketing, in order to further capitalize on the momentum that we have built while achieving a non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 14%,” Brown concluded.
Other 2010 financial highlights include:
- Cash flows from operations of $28.7 million, up from $15.1 million in 2009.
- Deferred revenues totaling $54.1 million as of Dec. 31, 2010, up from $48.2 million as of Dec. 31, 2009.

* 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 for stock options, the amortization of certain intangible assets related to acquisitions by the company and non-cash 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 income tax expense is primarily non-cash. 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-cash 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 related to stock options, non-cash income tax amounts and amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions for its internal budgets.
This release contains 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.
