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.
  • After an extensive multi-year evaluation of the leading visual data discovery vendors, Datawatch was selected by Fujitsu Limited and the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) to be the real time visualization solution for Arrowhead, the TSE's next generation trading system developed in collaboration with Fujitsu.  The first phase of deployment of the Datawatch visualization solution will be for trade surveillance and will enable regulatory organizations to identify irregularities in trading activities, in real time, and act on these irregularities to mitigate risk and improve compliance.
  • Datawatch was selected as the "2013 Best Big Data Technology Provider to the Buy Side" by Waters Technology in its annual awards competition. The awards recognize the leading technologies and vendors in their areas of expertise underpinned by the input and experience of seven judges - five buy-side-focused technology consultants and two Buy-Side Technology editors.  Datawatch customers on the buy-side include Blackrock, the world's largest asset manager, Citadel, one of the largest hedge funds in the world, and J.P. Morgan. They use Datawatch visualization solutions to analyze real-time market activity and perform in depth analysis of historical trading and risk data.
  • Datawatch and Splunk entered into a Technology Partner Agreement to collaborate in the development of API-level integration between Datawatch's real-time visualization solution and Splunk's enterprise platform. 
  • Datawatch formally launched its "land and expand" strategy to accelerate market awareness and increase sales for Datawatch's real-time visual data discovery solution.  Initial results from the program include a 200%+ quarter over quarter increase in trial downloads and dozens of new name visualization customers in the first fiscal quarter, including Cern in Switzerland, Commerz Finanz in Germany, Standard Charter Bank in Hong Kong, HSBC in Australia, Deutsch Bank in Thailand and in the U.S., M&T Bank, Virginia Credit Union, Phelps County Medical Center, Kirby Medical Center and Memorial Healthcare.
  • Datawatch released phase two of the product integration between the heritage Datawatch platform and the Panopticon visualization product, resulting in a new, comprehensive desktop and server based solution for customers that offers real-time functionality in an easy to use and easy to implement manner.
