News Release

Indianapolis, Ind. — Interactive Intelligence Group Inc. (Nasdaq: ININ), a global provider of software and services designed to improve the customer experience, has reported preliminary results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Total revenues in the quarter are expected to be between $78 and $80 million, compared to the company's prior guidance of $86 to $88 million for the quarter, due to lower than anticipated product revenues. These expected revenues compare to total revenues of $76.2 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Total orders in the 2014 second quarter, excluding the largest cloud-based order in the company’s history that was received in the same quarter last year, increased by 12 percent year-over-year, with cloud-based orders up 68 percent and representing 52 percent of total orders. With this large cloud-based order included, total orders decreased 38 percent.

“Certain large on-premises deals that we had expected to be signed during the quarter were delayed and we continued to defer revenues from two sizable contracts signed in prior periods that we had expected to recognize during the second quarter,” said Interactive Intelligence founder and CEO Dr. Donald Brown. “While we continue to examine all aspects of our performance in the quarter, our company's global salesforce is working with the largest pipeline we've ever had, and we continue to see growth in our cloud business. We remain confident in our ability to gain market share and further strengthen our competitive position with the release of our new multi-tenant PureCloud services in the fall.”

The company expects to report a non-GAAP* operating loss for the quarter of between $6 and $7 million, compared to its guidance anticipating near break-even operations. The company expects to report a GAAP operating loss of between $11 and $12 million. Preliminary second-quarter 2014 non-GAAP operating loss excludes stock-based compensation expense of $3.7 million and certain acquisition-related expenses and the amortization of intangible assets of $1.2 million.

The company has not completed its normal review process for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. As a result, these preliminary results may be subject to adjustments and could materially change.
