"We had a strong quarter, marked by record revenue, new global tier-1 network transformation project wins and our introduction of several industry-first unified communications capabilities," said Michael Tessler, president and chief executive officer, BroadSoft. "We recently hosted our largest and most successful annual users conference, BroadSoft Connections, where we introduced our new corporate messaging that puts the end-user at the center of everything we do. We believe that our focus on further enhancing business employee productivity through product innovation is resonating with our customers and positions us to continue to succeed in the marketplace."

"We are delighted with our third quarter results. Primarily driven by our UC-One hosted unified communications businesses, we saw strength in a number of our key metrics including revenue, billings, earnings, and cash flow," said Jim Tholen, chief financial officer, BroadSoft. "We continue to win, and invest in, strategic network transformation and enterprise VoLTE projects with major service providers worldwide. We believe that these wins can be positively impactful next year."

BroadSoft has provided in this release, and will provide on this morning''s teleconference, financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. BroadSoft uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes they are useful to investors, as a supplement to GAAP measures, in evaluating BroadSoft''s ongoing operational performance. BroadSoft''s management regularly uses these non-GAAP financial measures to understand and manage its business and believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding the Company''s performance by excluding certain non-cash expenses, and may include additional adjustments for items that are infrequent in nature. BroadSoft believes the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing its financial results with other companies in BroadSoft''s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures included in this release and to be discussed on this morning''s teleconference to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is set forth below.

Non-GAAP cost of revenue, license software cost of revenue, subscription and maintenance cost of revenue and professional services and other cost of revenue. We define non-GAAP cost of revenue as a cost of revenue less stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. We consider non-GAAP cost of revenue to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare our cost of revenue over multiple periods.

Non-GAAP gross profit, license software gross profit, subscription and maintenance support gross profit and professional services and other gross profit. We define non-GAAP gross profit as gross profit plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. We consider non-GAAP gross profit to be a useful metric for management and our investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare our sales margins over multiple periods.

Non-GAAP income from operations. We define non-GAAP operating income as income from operations plus stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense for acquired intangible assets. We consider non-GAAP operating income to be a useful metric for management and investors because it excludes the effect of certain non-cash expenses so management and investors can compare our core business operating results over multiple periods.

Non-GAAP operating expenses, sales and marketing expense, research and development expense and general and administrative expense. We define non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expense plus stock-based compensation expense allocated to sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative expenses. Similarly, we define non-GAAP sales and marketing, research and development and general and administrative expenses as the relevant GAAP measure plus stock-based compensation expense allocated to the particular expense item.

Non-GAAP net income and net income per share. We define non-GAAP net income as net income plus stock-based compensation expense, amortization expense for acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense on our Notes, foreign currency transaction gains and losses and non-cash tax expense included in the GAAP tax provision. We define non-GAAP income per share as non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding.

Billings. BroadSoft defines billings as revenue plus the net change in our deferred revenue balance for a particular period. BroadSoft believes that billings are a key measure of our business activity.

With respect to our expectations under "Guidance" above, and regarding certain of the projections discussed on this morning''s teleconference, reconciliation of both non-GAAP earnings per share guidance, and of projections regarding non-GAAP cost of sales and non-GAAP operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2014, 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, which are extremely difficult to project as a result of our tax status in a number of foreign jurisdictions, and stock-based compensation expense specific to equity compensation awards that are directly impacted by unpredictable fluctuations in our stock price. We expect the variability of the above charges to have a significant, and potentially unpredictable, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

The presentation of non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net income per share, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income from operations, billings and other non-GAAP financial measures in this release and on this morning''s teleconference is not meant to be a substitute for "net income," "net income per share," "gross margin," "income from operations" or other financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but rather should be evaluated in conjunction with such data. BroadSoft''s definition of "non-GAAP net income," "non-GAAP net income per share," "non-GAAP gross margin," "non-GAAP income from operations," "billings" and other non-GAAP financial measures may differ from similarly titled non-GAAP measures used by other companies and may differ from period to period. In reporting non-GAAP measures in the future, management may make other adjustments for expenses and gains it does not consider reflective of core operating performance in a particular period and may modify "non-GAAP net income," "non-GAAP net income per share," "non-GAAP gross margin," "non-GAAP income from operations," "billings" and such other non-GAAP measures by excluding these expenses and gains.

* For the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 and the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, the non-GAAP net income per diluted common share calculation included the dilutive effect of stock-based awards on the weighted average diluted common shares outstanding (such stock-based awards were not reflected in the corresponding GAAP diluted share calculations, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive as a result of the net losses for these periods). Total diluted weighted average common shares outstanding used for calculating non-GAAP net income per diluted common share were 29,852 thousand and 29,242 thousand for the three months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013 and 29,865 thousand and 28,905 thousand for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
