“ Although we could not be more pleased with Voxware ‘ s performance in Fiscal 2008, we must also point out that Fiscal 2009 will be challenging, particularly in the first fiscal quarter, ” said Scott Yetter, Voxware CEO. “ As economic conditions have deteriorated worldwide, certain vertical markets important to the Company such as retail and food distribution have been hit particularly hard, with existing customers delaying implementations and prospective customers delaying purchases. ”
“ We expect that these conditions, combined with a traditionally slow period in the later summer months, will lead Voxware to report lower revenues in the first quarter of Fiscal 2009 than we reported in the same period of Fiscal 2008. The Company has already taken some steps toward mitigating the impact of lower revenue in the first quarter of Fiscal 2009, and will take further steps if necessary. ”
Net profit on a non-GAAP basis was $372,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 and $1.483 million for the year ended June 30, 2008. The difference between the GAAP and non-GAAP net profit is attributable to non-cash stock-based compensation, which was $306,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2008 and $898,000 for the year ended June 30, 2008.
