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 entered into a master reseller agreement with Koncerndata in Sweden to represent Datawatch's Information Optimization solutions throughout the Nordic region.  Koncerndata, which will operate as Datawatch Nordics, has a long track record of success selling business analytic software solutions into the Nordic market, including as Hyperion Nordics, representing Hyperion Solutions (which was acquired by Oracle) and as Outlooksoft Nordics, representing Outlooksoft Corporation (which was acquired by SAP).
  • Datawatch entered into business alliances with 13 new partners, including Panorama Software, a global leader in Business Intelligence 3.0 solutions; Xerox in Canada; Reddot in Russia; Comesio in Austria; 2Quadrant in Czech, Slovakia and Hungary; Sky Solutions in North America; and Tricor in Japan.
  • The Methodist Hospital System in Houston, Texas bought Datawatch's denial management analytics solution for dashboard views of 835 EDI healthcare remittance data to assist in the revenue cycle management process.   Datawatch's denial management analytics solution provides out-of-the-box dashboards to analyze denied claims, denied claims by reason code, inpatient vs. outpatient claims history and more.
  • 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

  • Cash and short-term investments were $8.94 million at December 31, 2012, up 2% from $8.72 million at September 30, 2012 and down 7% from $9.65 million at December 31, 2011.  In March 2012, the company used $3.04 million in cash to partially fund the purchase of the Monarch intellectual property, and since that time used another $600,000 to partially pay down its $1.5 million working capital loan with Silicon Valley Bank.
  • 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.
  • There were 5 six-figure deals in the first fiscal quarter of 2013, the same number as in the first fiscal quarter of 2012.
  • 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.
