Michael A. Morrison, president and CEO of Datawatch, said, "The first quarter of fiscal 2013 represented a significant pivot point for Datawatch.  During the quarter, we re-introduced ourselves to the market with a clear and compelling message, more strategic positioning and a new brand.  We delivered an aggressive training and enablement program for our worldwide sales organization and our global alliance partners around this new messaging and positioning.  The early results from this important shift in messaging and positioning are promising.  As a result of our new approach, the opportunities we are pursuing are much more strategic to the enterprise.  The relative size of these opportunities is bigger and the contacts with whom we are working within these enterprises are higher level.  We have already secured several key new name customers pursuing this strategy, and this bodes well for our continued success in implementing our plans to build upon Datawatch's strengths for the long-term."

Mr. Morrison continued, "Our new messaging and positioning are also having a positive effect on our market awareness, as competitors, industry analysts, financial analysts and organizations of all sizes are beginning to recognize the value that can be achieved with Datawatch's Information Optimization solutions.  I am confident that the steps that we have taken thus far, along with our plans for the remainder of this fiscal year, make Datawatch more enterprise-ready from a sales, product and services perspective as we seek to showcase the importance of variety in Big Data and Business Intelligence applications.  Finally, our first fiscal quarter of 2013 also produced solid results as we executed on our newly launched partnership strategy, with the addition of 13 new partners to our global ecosystem.  These partners strengthen our domain expertise, increase our geographic coverage and enhance our ability to meet the complex needs of enterprise customers."

First Quarter Business Highlights

  • Datawatch released Datawatch Enterprise Server 11.5, which introduces Monarch Power Client for seamless connectivity and interaction with Datawatch Enterprise Server and which supports Japanese and simplified Chinese character sets.  With this new release, organizations throughout the world will be able to leverage existing investments in Monarch to enable self-service delivery and consumption of models, reports and analysis over the Web.

First Quarter Financial Highlights

  • Gross margin for the first fiscal quarter of 2013 was 84.6%, compared to 82.8% for the fourth fiscal quarter of 2012 and 80.2% for the first fiscal quarter of 2012. 
  • Days sales outstanding were 61 days at December 31, 2012, compared to 70 days at September 30, 2012 and 52 days at December 31, 2011.

  • The average deal size in the first fiscal quarter of 2013 was $49,000, as compared to $87,000 in the first fiscal quarter of 2012.  The average deal size in the first fiscal quarter of 2012 was positively impacted by a seven-figure license transaction in that quarter.

"We enter the second fiscal quarter of 2013 with our sales teams and partners effectively utilizing our new messaging and positioning, increased market awareness and credibility, and a strong and growing pipeline of activity for our Information Optimization solutions.  As a result, we are confident that we will see a re-acceleration of revenue growth in the next nine months of fiscal 2013 from the rate we saw in the first fiscal quarter of 2013," stated Mr. Morrison.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement our financial results presented in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain certain non-GAAP financial measures that we believe are helpful in understanding our past financial performance and future results. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures and should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. Our management regularly uses our supplemental non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand and manage our business and make operating decisions. Our non-GAAP financial measures include adjustments based on the following items, as well as the related income tax effects and adjustments to the valuation allowance:

Amortization of purchased software: We have excluded the effect of amortization of the Monarch software and related intellectual property that we acquired from Math Strategies on March 30, 2012 from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures.  Amortization of this purchased software resulted from a material transaction that is not likely to occur in the foreseeable future.  Investors should note that the use of the purchased software will contribute to future period revenues.  Amortization of the purchased software will recur in future periods.

Share-based compensation expenses: We have excluded the effect of share-based compensation expenses from our non-GAAP operating expenses and net income measures. Although share-based compensation is a key incentive offered to our employees, we continue to evaluate our business performance excluding share-based compensation expenses. Share-based compensation expenses will recur in future periods.

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured?
