Management Commentary

“I’m pleased to report another strong financial quarter as we achieved 22% year-over-year revenue and significant earnings per share growth,” said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft.  “It was also a great quarter from a customer traction perspective. We saw several major product launches by our customers, including a VoLTE-based mobile offering by a major carrier. We believe that these launches, and our customers’ continued success in the market, highlight the strategic value of our solutions.


For the fourth quarter of 2016, BroadSoft anticipates revenue of $94 to $102 million. BroadSoft also expects to achieve earnings on a non-GAAP basis of $0.65 to $0.83 per diluted common share.  For the full year 2016, BroadSoft expects revenue in the range of $333 million to $341 million and non-GAAP EPS in the range of $2.04 to $2.22.

A reconciliation of non-GAAP earnings per share guidance, as well as projected non-GAAP cost of sales and operating expenses to be discussed on this morning’s teleconference, to the closest corresponding GAAP measures, is not available without unreasonable efforts on a forward-looking basis due to the high variability, complexity and low visibility with respect to the charges excluded from these non-GAAP measures, in particular, the measures and effects of non-cash income taxes and stock-based compensation expense. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.
