CHELMSFORD, Mass., Jan. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leading global provider of visual data discovery solutions, today announced that total revenue for its first fiscal quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $8.81 million, an increase of 29% from revenue of $6.82 million in the first quarter a year ago.  License revenue for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $5.43 million, an increase of 25% from the $4.33 million recorded in the comparable quarter a year ago.

Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was ($5.61) million, or ($0.66) per diluted share, compared to a net loss of ($222,000), or ($0.03) per diluted share, for the year ago period.  Excluding the effects of the non-cash amortization associated with the purchase of certain intellectual property and other intangible assets, as well as non-cash stock compensation costs, the Company's non–GAAP net loss for its first fiscal quarter of 2014 was ($1.98) million, or ($0.23) per diluted share, compared to net income of $786,000, or $0.11 per diluted share in the first fiscal quarter of 2013.

"In our first full quarter since closing the acquisition of Panopticon in late August 2013, we delivered solid revenue growth while simultaneously completing the full integration of Panopticon into Datawatch in the key areas of product, marketing and sales," said Michael A. Morrison, president and chief executive officer of Datawatch.  "We continued to advance our growth agenda with strategic partners as reflected by the reselling agreement we announced with IBM in our first quarter as well as the expansion of our relationships with Tibco, NASDAQ and Thomson Reuters during the quarter.  This meaningful progress with our partners will not only accelerate revenue opportunities for Datawatch but will also provide us with invaluable visibility in the visual data discovery market."

Mr. Morrison continued, "Our view of the long-term market opportunity in real-time visual data discovery and Big Data analytics remains as robust as ever.  Our rapidly growing pipelines, which are more than double where they were at the beginning of our first fiscal quarter in October 2013, give us the confidence that our operating plans and business strategy are sound and aligned to the market opportunity, and that we are, in the quarters ahead, poised to capture a growing share of this market, which has been estimated at more than $14 billion by industry analysts."

First Quarter Business Highlights

  • Datawatch and IBM entered into a global agreement for IBM to promote and resell Datawatch Report Mining Server with IBM Content Manager OnDemand.  Pursuant to this agreement, Datawatch Report Mining Server is now included on IBM's price list and available for sale by both IBM direct sales and its global channel partners on a worldwide basis.

Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along...

We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business a...
Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected.
