Interactive Intelligence expects quarterly loss

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. on Tuesday said it expects to report a net loss in the range of $500,000 to $1.5 million when it releases second quarter results July 31.

That’s a per-share loss of between 2 cents and 7 cents.

The Indianapolis-based maker of call-center software earned $6.3 million, or 32 cents per share, in last year's second quarter.

Interactive Intelligence, however, said a greater-than-expected level of product orders in the quarter bodes well for future earnings periods. The company is selling a lower percentage of its software in a box and more through cloud-based delivery, in which customers access the software over the Internet.

Cloud-based orders are up 88 percent year-over-year.

The company also said revenue in the quarter was held back by extended payment terms on a large order, deferral of other orders and a higher percentage of prepaid, multiyear product-maintenance revenue that is recognized over the support period.

As a result, second quarter revenue will be between $54 million and $55 million, which is below previous guidance of $58 million to $61 million. Revenue in last year's second quarter was $52 million.

CEO Donald Brown said total product orders rose 26 percent during the second quarter. He said Interactive should hit its 20-percent order growth rate for the full year, as expected.

  1. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
