Fourth quarter revenues were $29.3 million, a 23 percent increase from $23.9 million in the same quarter last year.

  • 32 percent annual revenue growth
  • 61 percent increase in operating income

“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.
 
Net income for the 2007 fiscal year was $17.5 million with EPS of $0.91, up from 2006 fiscal year net income of $10.2 million with EPS of $0.56.

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