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. I never thought I'd see the day when a Republican Mayor would lead the charge in attempting to raise every tax we have to pay. Now it's income taxes and property taxes that Ballard wants to increase. And to pay for a pre-K program? Many studies have shown that pre-K offer no long-term educational benefits whatsoever. And Ballard is pitching it as a way of fighting crime? Who is he kidding? It's about government provided day care. It's a shame that we elected a Republican who has turned out to be a huge big spending, big taxing, big borrowing liberal Democrat.

  2. Why do we blame the unions? They did not create the 11 different school districts that are the root of the problem.

  3. I was just watching an AOW race from cleveland in 1997...in addition to the 65K for the race, there were more people in boats watching that race from the lake than were IndyCar fans watching the 2014 IndyCar season finale in the Fontana grandstands. Just sayin...That's some resurgence modern IndyCar has going. Almost profitable, nobody in the grandstands and TV ratings dropping 61% at some tracks in the series. Business model..."CRAZY" as said by a NASCAR track general manager. Yup, this thing is purring like a cat! Sponsors...send them your cash, pronto!!! LOL, not a chance.

  4. I'm sure Indiana is paradise for the wealthy and affluent, but what about the rest of us? Over the last 40 years, conservatives and the business elite have run this country (and state)into the ground. The pendulum will swing back as more moderate voters get tired of Reaganomics and regressive social policies. Add to that the wave of minority voters coming up in the next 10 to 15 years and things will get better. unfortunately we have to suffer through 10 more years of gerrymandered districts and dispropionate representation.

  5. Funny thing....rich people telling poor people how bad the other rich people are wanting to cut benefits/school etc and that they should vote for those rich people that just did it. Just saying..............
