Oct 22, 2013 (11:10 PM EDT)
BURLINGTON, Mass., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ClickSoftware Technologies Ltd. (NasdaqGS: CKSW), the leading provider of automated mobile workforce management and optimization solutions for the service industry, today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.
For the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, total revenues were $23.3 million, down 15% from $27.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. Net loss for the third quarter of 2013 was $3.6 million, or $(0.11) per fully diluted share, compared to net income of $2.8 million, or $0.09 per fully diluted share, for the same period last year. Non-GAAP net loss for the quarter was $3.3 million, or $(0.10) per fully diluted share, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $3.7 million, or $0.11 per fully diluted share, for the same period last year.
Software license revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $4.7 million, down 58% compared with software license revenues of $11.0 million for the same period last year. Services revenues were $18.6 million, up 14% compared with services revenues of $16.3 million in the same period last year.
Gross profit in the third quarter of 2013 was $12.2 million, or 52% of revenues, compared to $17.5 million, or 64% of revenues, in the same period last year.
Following a $1.6 million cash dividend payment, cash, cash equivalents and short and long-term investments at the end of the third quarter of 2013 were $55.7 million, an increase of $1.3 million compared to the end of the second quarter of 2013. Net cash provided by operating activities was $3.3 million during the third quarter of 2013.
"During the third quarter we continued to experience a number of positive trends that will increase recurring revenues and improve the visibility and predictability of our business. With eight new cloud customers signed in the third quarter, the number of new cloud-based customers signed in the first nine months of 2013 has doubled year-over-year. Our pipeline for the next twelve months includes more than 100 large and mid-market prospects considering our cloud-based solutions," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, ClickSoftware's Founder and CEO. "Along with strong demand for cloud-based solutions, we also continue to see healthy demand for our on-premise offerings, and in the first nine months of 2013 we closed a higher number of on-premise deals compared to the same period last year. Furthermore, our services revenues, which consist of recurring support revenues and consulting revenues, both increased during the quarter compared to the same period last year."
"Our ability to offer both cloud and on-premise solutions, while offering the industry's most dynamic and scalable solution, provide a solution that is highly differentiated from that of any of our competitors. Specifically, we see increasing traction for our mobility products driven by general high demand for business mobility solutions. We remain an industry leader for field service optimization software as recently recognized by Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management report, for the third consecutive year," concluded Dr. BenBassat.
The Company expects revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 to be between $26 million to $28 million, which will bring 2013 annual revenues to be between $98.5 million to $100.5 million. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings (loss) per share for the fourth quarter of 2013 is expected to be in the range of $(0.04) loss to $0.01 earnings, which excludes share-based compensation, deferred taxes expense (net of tax payment for previous years retained earnings) and amortization of intangible assets costs of approximately $0.02, $0.00 and $0.00 per fully diluted share, respectively. GAAP fully diluted loss per share is expected to be in the range of $(0.06) to $(0.01).
In light of the short-term challenges associated with our transition to the cloud, ClickSoftware's Board of Directors has decided to suspend its payment of dividends for the time being. The Company does not have a formal policy governing dividend payments, and the declaration and payment of future dividends, if any, is at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors.
