Indianapolis-based Interactive Intelligence Inc. expects profit in both the fourth quarter and entire year of 2010 to exceed earnings in the previous time periods, the company announced late Monday.

The business-communications software firm, in announcing preliminary earnings, anticipates reporting fourth-quarter profit of between $4.5 million and $5.3 million, or about 23 cents to 27 cents per share.

For the final quarter of 2009, Interactive Intelligence earned $2.5 million, or 14 cents per share.

The fourth quarter is typically the company’s strongest, and that held true in 2010, Interactive Intelligence Founder and CEO Donald E. Brown said in a prepared statement.

“A number of significant product orders resulted in an outstanding performance for the quarter, including five orders over $1 million and another 25 orders over $250,000,” he said.

For the year ended Dec. 31, Interactive Intelligence expects profit of between $12.3 million and $13.1 million, with earnings per share of between 65 cents and 69 cents, compared with 2009 profit of $8.6 million, or 47 cents per share.

Fourth-quarter revenue last year should be between $49 million and $51 million, compared to revenue of $35.9 million in the same quarter of 2009.

The company forecasts revenue for the entire year to be between $164.7 million and $166.7 million, compared to $131.4 million in 2009.

The company’s outlook for 2011 includes annual revenue of at least $200 million, or 20-percent growth compared to last year’s revenue, Brown said.

Interactive Intelligence is scheduled to report fourth quarter and year-end results for 2010 at 7 a.m. Jan. 28.

Company shares hit a 52-week high of $29.62 each on Monday before closing slightly lower at $29.41.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
