Fourth quarter revenues were $29.3 million, a 23 percent increase from $23.9 million in the same quarter last year.
 
“Our growth was largely driven by the significant value proposition offered by our unique all-in-one communications software suite for contact centers and enterprises,” said Interactive Intelligence CEO, Dr. Donald E. Brown.

  • 32 percent annual revenue growth

“We believe migration to VoIP continues to fuel our company’s strong and steady growth,” Brown said.
 
According to the announcement, net income for the 2007 fourth quarter was $10.3 million, with diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.53. These results include $840,000 of expense related to employee stock options, as well as a tax benefit of $8.1 million recorded to reduce the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2006 was $1.6 million with EPS of $0.08, including stock option expense of $539,000.

The non-GAAP differences were due to exclusion of the non-cash income tax benefit recorded in the fourth quarter of 2007 and stock-based compensation expense recorded in both years.

The non-GAAP differences were due to exclusion of the non-cash income tax benefit and stock-based compensation expense recorded in both years.
