Good day, and welcome to the eGain Fiscal 2019 First Quarter Financial Results Conference Call. Today's conference is being recorded.

At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Jim Byers with MKR group. Please go ahead, sir.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you, Jim. Good afternoon, everyone. We are executing well under our new SaaS model, good momentum in the first quarter. Let me share some financial highlights. Note that I will use our 605 revenue numbers for consistent year-over-year comparison.

For the SaaS revenue growth for the quarter, on a year-over-year basis, it was 46%. Subscription revenue growth year-over-year was 19%, 1-9. Gross margin in the quarter was at 68%, which was up from 64% last quarter same -- last year same quarter. And we generated $3.3 million operating cash in dollars in the quarter. And a nice kind of artifact of this quarter was also that we were GAAP profitable for this quarter, not a bad start. So that's kind of good.

And let's move to the quarter in terms of actual wins and some of the notable wins that we had. So one of the ones that I want to mention is a large U.S. financial services provider that we won and new logo, that specialize in consumer loan portfolio management. That's a good win for us. Another one was a fast-growing digital brand retailer. They decided to switch from, as it turns out, Zendesk to eGain for a richer, more comprehensive and scalable alternative.

What we saw there was that they ran out of gas on Zendesk as their business grew, and in less than 30 days from contract signature since then, we have now helped them go live on our platform and away from the competitive option. Another win worth mentioning, which is more of an expansion, is a large U.S. banking client who are migrating to the eGain Cloud from an on-premise model that they used to be in. And in the process, they are also significantly expanding the use of eGain.

One last one I want to bring out, even though that was not in the Q1 quarter, per se, but was in the first part of Q2, but it highlights some of the exciting opportunities we are seeing, is a win with a household brand name in the U.S. It's another financial services provider. This one highlights the interest we're seeing in our virtual assistant offering, the AI powered VA. And this client, we're going to be implementing a virtual assistant for them for their customers. And it will deliver a connected smart automated experience with seamless escalation to human expertise and that associated assurance through messaging and chat and co-browse, all in one platform. That connected automation and AI-powered virtual assistance is something that we're seeing increasing interest in, and we're very excited about it.

So let's talk a little bit about our partners. We continue to focus on building these complementary partnerships to reach more markets. To begin with, obviously, Cisco, for us, a strategic partner, continue to deepen that partnership. The thing we're doing there is we're clearly identifying and clarifying the 2 lines of engagement and partnership that we have with Cisco. One is the OEM partnership that we have with them, where our chat and e-mail product -- our technology is embedded inside the Cisco enterprise contact center solution. And on the resale partnership side, where Cisco and their partners are reselling eGain-branded products, we are focusing on knowledge in AI and analytics. So that clearly differentiates the 2 broad set of capabilities that we deliver into the Cisco ecosystem. And that is starting to help us create more clarity around when Cisco's customers should be going with the Cisco-branded omnichannel platform for contact centers, which includes our OEM technology, and when they should snap on the eGain-branded knowledge AI and analytics in the cloud into that contact center omnichannel platform.

So that's going in the right direction for us. The next one I want to mention is Altitude Software, and this is a new partner we signed up. Good one, I believe, because it kind of shows the templates that we want to replicate more and more. They are a midsized European provider of contact center technologies. They will integrate our AI and knowledge solution into their suite to offer agents or their clients the right kind of guidance and personalized answers on their platform, all from the eGain Cloud. And that's critical in all these partnerships now, everything that eGain offers which is eGain branded is all being served from the eGain Cloud.

Then I want to kind of bring out the continued work we're doing with 2 other partners that we have mentioned before, Avaya and Amazon Connect. We are now executing go-to-market campaigns with them to build demand. And we continue to believe that these partnerships will become business relevant in terms of scale in the latter half of this fiscal year for us. So that's good.

Also, we're seeing more partner-leveraged marketing opportunities that we are executing. For instance, last month, even though that was not in Q1, but in last month, we executed a very successful partner -- joint partner marketing event in Central Europe, in Hungary and Budapest. And over 75 large enterprise clients were in attendance for a full day of eGain partnered with a consulting digital transformation outfit called Pattern Digital. And those sorts of opportunities create that leverage that we are trying to drive more and more.

Overall, I believe now that we are in a good rhythm of SaaS model execution, something that we've been talking about for some time, saying that we'd like to get there. I believe that we are in a good place and I'll kind of point out what I see as working better than before. First of all, our focus on what opportunities we go after and where, that's really sharp now. So the target market is very clear; it's the enterprise B2C companies. The regions are clear; it's U.S. and Western Europe. And so by creating that intense focus on the intersection of these 2 geography focus and the type of companies that we're going after, we are working on fewer non-sweet spot opportunities than ever before, which is really important for us. The second thing that we're seeing is just growing demand in the market for what I call our rich, scalable and secure solutions for customer engagement automation. You need to have all 3.

We are seeing a lot of interest, just like everyone else is, in AI and virtual assistance. But increasingly, we see that it's not just for the technology, not just for the point solution, clients want connected proven solutions. They want solutions that can be easily configured, deployed and scaled. They don't want to connect all the dots themselves. That's one of the big changes we're seeing in the market and something that we feel we're in a very good position to take advantage of. Because, if we look at the market, there are literally 100s of providers, literally, in this market all the way from CRM through to contact centers to pure plays to you name it, and everyone seems to claim everything, including eGain. So the prospects, it's a dizzying challenge trying to find the right partner. And in this environment, we feel that our newly sort of rebranded Try+ Buy, which we're calling AI Value in 30 Days, because it can -- shows the real proposition much better, now we've rebranded it and we're pushing that program, which is an AI Value in 30 Days. So same promise of no cost, no risk, no commitment and 30 days of production pilot with best practice in the eGain Cloud. That's getting good traction. So that's something we want to push harder.

And then, what we're seeing in the pipeline is, thanks to our proven product superiority, also better customer engagement, a more programmatic approach to delivering the actual implementation and value to the customer, and finally, much stronger attention to quality in our sales execution, much stronger than before. Those 3 things put together, our win rate is moving up. So that is giving us more confidence.

And the last piece of the environment we have now is, we seem to be able to tap into more demand pools through these partner marketing events and go-to-market campaigns that I mentioned.

Operator [5]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your patience in holding. We now have our speakers back in conference. Mr. Smit, you may continue.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [6]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, thank you very much. This is actually Roy. I'm sorry for the technical glitch. Not sure what happened, but I -- if you give me just 5 more seconds, let me see where I -- where we disconnected and I'll continue from there. So just give me 5 seconds please. Okay, I'm back here again. I apologize. But I just wanted to make sure I don't repeat too much of myself.

So let me just try to summarize the go-forward plans, and I feel like we are now in a good rhythm of our SaaS model execution with our focus on the enterprise B2C market and the regional or geographic focus on the U.S. and Western Europe. With the demand for our solutions where we see good interest, not just in our point solution or technology, but also moreover -- more than that, interest in a connected platform capability that has the richness of applications as well as the end-to-end customer experience automation.

So if we are starting with the virtual assistant, we see people looking for something that connects seamlessly on the same platform into escalation into the knowledge base or into process guidance with AI and eventually into human escalation if needed into chat and messaging and co-browse.

So with our rebranded Try+ Buy offer, which we call the AI Value in 30 Days, it's something that we are very comfortable that we are increasingly differentiating our proposition because of that capability to show results with our AI technology without any customer commitment on the other side. And then based on that, hopefully, turn that into a real business engagement.

So with all that in place, I feel like we are ready to ramp up our sales and marketing investment, and we're doing that this quarter under Todd and Anand's leadership, respectively, on sales and marketing. Of course, we'll continue to be very diligent even as we aggressively scale in proportion to our pipeline strength.

So it's an exciting time for us, an inflection point in our business, something that we have been working toward for 6 quarters now since we announced our migration to completion to SaaS.

And so before I hand over the call to Eric, I want to mention one more thing, which is our upcoming U.S. event for customers, DX18, and that's taking place next week in Chicago on November 13 and 14. We'll be showcasing a lot of cool innovation on our platform at scale. We'll have many customer success stories, 3 to be precise, our customers including British Telecom and Assurant and Paylocity.

And then, we'll also have Rick Parrish, who is a principal customer experience analyst for Forrester, and Nadine LeBlanc, who is the Research Director for CRM and customer experience in Gartner. Both of them will share their perspectives with attendees and mostly our clients who are driving digital transformation in their organization. So it'll be an exciting and informative event. And I hope to see many of you there. If you've not already signed up, please do and go to our website and sign up, it's free. With that, I'll hand over the mic to Eric Smit, our Chief Financial Officer. Eric?

Eric N. Smit, eGain Corporation - CFO [7]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks, Ashu, and thanks, everybody. Before I review our quarterly results, I'd like to note that eGain adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard known as ASC 606 effective July 1, 2018, the start of our fiscal first quarter. We have adopted ASC 606 using the modified retrospect method, under which we are not required to restate our prior period financial statements.

The Q1 results I will discuss today are presented in compliance with the new ASC 606 revenue recognition standard. For purposes of comparison to prior year results, in some cases, I will also share Q1 results that are presented in conformity with the amounts previously disclosed under the prior recognition standard, ASC 605. In conjunction with the adoption of this accounting standard, I'd also like to note the change in the way we are classifying our revenue going forward. Through June 30, 2018, eGain revenue was classified in 3 categories on our income statement: recurring, legacy license and professional services. With our SaaS transition complete, we're changing how we classify revenue to better align with our go-forward business. We now classify our revenue in 2 categories: subscription and professional services, with a further breakdown of subscription revenue into SaaS revenue and legacy support revenue, SaaS revenue being the key metric we're using internally to measure our growth.

As our legacy license revenue is no longer material and accounted for less than 1% of revenue in fiscal year 2018, we are no longer breaking it out and instead include it with our subscription number.

Now turning to our financials, as Ashu noted, our execution continues to improve under our new SaaS revenue model. And we are seeing continued positive momentum in the business. Looking at the financial highlights for the quarter, SaaS revenue was up 40% year-over-year, up 46% year-over-year under ASC 605. Subscription revenue was up 16% year-over-year, up 19% year-over-year under ASC 605. And non-GAAP operating income was $1.4 million, up from non-GAAP operating income of $569,000 a year ago.

And non-GAAP net income was $1.2 million or $0.04 per share, up from non-GAAP operating -- or non-GAAP net income of $255,000 or $0.01 per share a year ago. And we generated $3.3 million in cash from operations during the quarter at cash flow margin of 21%.

Now looking at our quarterly results in more detail. Total revenue was $15.7 million, up 8% year-over-year. Under ASC 605, total revenue was $15.9 million, up 9% year-over-year. Subscription revenue was $13.7 million, up 16% year-over-year. And under ASC 605, subscription revenue was $14.1 million, up 19% year-over-year.

Subscription revenue accounts for 87% of total revenue in Q1, and under ASC 605, subscription revenue accounted for 89% of total revenue, up from 81% in the year-ago quarter.

Breaking out the revenue components in Q1, SaaS revenue was $9.7 million, up 40% from the year ago quarter. Under ASC 605, SaaS revenue was $10.1 million, up 46% from the year ago quarter.

Legacy support was $4 million, down 18% from the year ago quarter. This reduction, again, was primarily driven by on-premise customers migrating to our cloud. Professional services revenue was $2 million or 13% of total revenue compared to $2.7 million or 19% of total revenue in the year ago quarter. Under ASC 605, PS revenue was $1.8 million or 11% of total revenue, and that is down 35% from the year ago quarter.

As we've stated in previous calls, this reduction in PS is in line with our plan and getting us closer to what we believe is industry standard for SaaS business, which is PS revenue that ranges from the low teens to the high single digits as a percentage of total revenue.

Now looking at our non-GAAP gross profits and gross margins. Gross profits for the first quarter was $10.6 million or a gross margin of 68%. This compares to a gross profit of $9.3 million or a gross margin of 64% a year ago. The year-over-year increase in the overall gross margin reflects the benefits we are starting to see on the scale and efficiencies around our cloud operations.

If you look at the breakout of gross margin by revenue type in Q1, our subscription revenue gross margin was 76%, up from 75% in the year ago quarter. And professional services gross margin was 11% compared to 15% a year ago.

Now turning to operations, non-GAAP operating costs for the first quarter came in at $9.3 million compared to $8.7 million in the year ago quarter. Non-GAAP operating income in the first quarter was $1.4 million compared to non-GAAP operating income of $569,000 in the year ago quarter. Again, looking at net income, non-GAAP net income for the first quarter was $1.2 million or $0.04 per share on a basic and diluted basis, compared to non-GAAP net income of $255,000 or $0.01 per share on a basic and diluted basis in the year ago quarter. GAAP net income for the first quarter was $604,000 or $0.02 per share, compared to GAAP net loss of $568,000 or a loss of $0.02 per share in the year ago quarter.

Now turning to our balance sheet and cash flows. Total cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2018 was $11.5 million, compared to $11.5 million as of June 30, 2018.

Cash provided by operations was $3.3 million in the quarter, compared to cash provided by operations of $5.9 million in the same quarter a year ago. Total net accounts receivable was $16.9 million at September 30, 2018 compared to $6.5 million at September 30, 2017. And GAAP deferred revenue was $36.9 million at September 30, 2018 compared to $27 million at September 30, 2017.

Part of the reason for the increase in both AR and deferred revenue on the balance sheet is, under ASC 605, the bills that uncollected receivables were netted down in both the AR and deferred revenue. Under ASC 606, any transaction that has been invoiced, even if we haven't received the cash, will show up on our short-term deferred revenue as well as in the AR.

Now looking at total deferred revenue, which includes the unbilled deferred revenue that remains off balance sheet, that was $71.4 million as of September 30, 2018, up 15% from $62.1 million as of September 30, 2017. As we adopted ASC 606 on a modified retrospective basis, any revenue recognition adjustments attributable to prior periods was recorded as an adjustment to deferred revenue and retained earnings at the beginning of the fiscal year. This adjustment resulted in the acceleration of revenue to prior periods of approximately $3 million and a corresponding decrease in our deferred revenue balance.

So under ASC 605, total revenue -- total deferred revenue was approximately $74.2 million as of September 30, 2018, up from 19% from September 30, 2017. Of the total deferred revenue balance, we expect approximately 60% to be recognized as revenue in the next 12 months.

Total debt as of September 30, 2018 was $6.1 million, down 38% from $9.9 million as of September 30, 2017. And our resulting net cash position improved to $5.5 million as of September 30, 2018, from $900,000 as of September 30, 2017.

Now before turning to our guidance, I want to highlight that for comparative purposes, the guidance we are providing today uses historical accounting standard ASC 605 in order to provide better transparency and comparability to the fiscal year 2018 financial data, which was reported under ASC 605.

Now turning to that guidance, we are reiterating our previously provided expectations for fiscal 2019. We continue to expect to report SaaS revenue growth for the year to be between 25% and 30%, and recurring revenue growth for the year to be between 10% and 15%. While we plan to make increased investments to grow the business, we do continue to expect to be cash flow positive from operations for the full fiscal year.

Finally, on the Investor Relations front, eGain will be participating at 2 upcoming investor conferences. Next week we will be in New York, meeting with investors at the ROTH Technology Corporate Access Day on November 14. And then presenting at the Craig-Hallum Alpha Select Conference taking place the next day, November 15, also in New York. We hope to see some of you at these conferences.

In addition, we will be hosting an Analyst Day event in conjunction with our customer event, DX18, in Chicago on November 13. This is a great event for current or prospective analysts or investors to attend, as we'll have presentations from senior management and industry leaders and researchers, as Ashu mentioned. We look forward to seeing some of you at these events.

This concludes our prepared remarks. We look forward to updating you on our continued progress when we report results for our second quarter fiscal 2019. Operator, we will now open the call for questions. Operator?

================================================================================

Questions and Answers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operator [1]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(Operator Instructions) We'll take our first question from Richard Baldry with Roth Capital.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richard Kenneth Baldry, Roth Capital Partners, LLC, Research Division - MD & Senior Research Analyst [2]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Could you talk about your expectation for sort of a typical time to productivity for new sales hires? We're trying to gauge, as you accelerate your spending there, when we would expect to see that sort of inflect on the bookings, maybe and/or the revenue side of the table.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [3]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sure. So we think that, Rich, right now, we see about 6 months ramp. So that's our current thinking, that for the first 6 months, I think, it's a ramp-up and after that, we expect the reps to be productive.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richard Kenneth Baldry, Roth Capital Partners, LLC, Research Division - MD & Senior Research Analyst [4]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And then can you talk at all the thoughts around the magnitude of increase you're sort of looking there, either on a dollar basis, a headcount basis, percent versus headcount you have in place today?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [5]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The headcount might be a little harder, but my guess -- we're going to be incremental in our increase here. But I do think that over the next -- through the end of fiscal '19, we would like to grow our capacity by 50% more than where it is now on the sales front.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richard Kenneth Baldry, Roth Capital Partners, LLC, Research Division - MD & Senior Research Analyst [6]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And then in terms of the legacy maintenance that's left, can you talk about any trends you sort of see in terms of the dollars you get when they move over to the SaaS platform versus sort of the maintenance levels of spending they've seen prior and then contrast that to your retention rate on that? So do you think that's a good field to farm for increased revenues? Or you sort of see that static as you kind of move from one side to the other?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [7]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I'll give you the qualitative and maybe a little bit of quantitative. So for the customers who move to the cloud, what we're seeing now is roughly, roughly a 75% and up to a 100% uplift on the annuity stream that they would have had on the on-premise support side. That's kind of -- that's -- I think the 75% is probably a good number to think about as an uplift. Eric, you want to add to that?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eric N. Smit, eGain Corporation - CFO [8]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No, I think that's consistent. But then, I think, Ashu, as you were saying, in talking about the opportunity that it presents for the expansion is an interesting one.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [9]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, which is layered on top.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richard Kenneth Baldry, Roth Capital Partners, LLC, Research Division - MD & Senior Research Analyst [10]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. And I got cut off in the beginning, so not sure if you already addressed this, but could you talk a little bit about your successes and trending with the partner sales model?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [11]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So that -- the model that Todd has put in place is working well. It's an overlay model where the partner team -- the partner sales team is working hand-in-hand with the enterprise sales team, and both of them get credit for any sales generated through the partner. So that part is, I'd say, on the margin maybe a little more expensive for us, but certainly more collaborative and more effective from a booking standpoint. So we are going to stay with that and continue to have that overlay. And likely, as we scale the enterprise -- the sales team, we're going to make sure that the partner overlays also are accordingly resourced and enhanced.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operator [12]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We'll take our next question from Ryan MacDonald with Needham & Company.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alex Narum, Needham & Company, LLC, Research Division - Associate [13]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is Alex Narum. I'm on for Ryan. Last quarter you spoke about increasing your focus on the mid-market. Can you provide some color on the progress that you're making there? And what have you learned thus far? I know you are starting to see mid-market contributions to the pipeline.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [14]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sure. Yes. So the mid-market continues to be an area of investment for us. On the margin, it's still a small percentage of our total investment in sales and marketing. But that's an area where we are adding more sales capacity incrementally, and making sure that we can scale that in a replicable way. So, so far we are seeing that as a good place for us to drive more growth.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operator [15]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We'll take our next question from Jeff Van Rhee with Craig-Hallum Capital.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rudy Kessinger, Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC, Research Division - Research Analyst [16]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is Rudy on for Jeff. Just a couple of quick questions. Building off of, sorry, the analyst with Roth Capital, in regards to the migration from the legacy over to the cloud, you said you're getting about 75% uplift on that? So say, roughly, $1 up to $1.75 translation?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [17]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes. That is correct.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rudy Kessinger, Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC, Research Division - Research Analyst [18]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay. Then roughly what percent total have you migrated over at this point?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eric N. Smit, eGain Corporation - CFO [19]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So I think for us, we've -- the total count is not a number that we focus on just because the path we've taken is target the higher ARR customers. And so we've done, I think, a good job working on a number of these larger accounts. And that continues to be our focus. I think we are -- we've now got a good handle on, I would say, most of the accounts that are paying us north of $50,000 annually. And certainly, in some instances, these accounts have got factors at play that have resulted in them thinking in almost all cases, saying that there is a level of interest, but then they have internal drivers that are delaying the transition process. So from our perspective, this is an ongoing activity. We've obviously seen this number come down quite a bit over the years. But I think we've got a good handle, at least, on the larger accounts that we're working through.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rudy Kessinger, Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC, Research Division - Research Analyst [20]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, got it. Then another question, in regards to bookings that you guys had this quarter, if you could give some color on what percent of those came from new customers? And what percent of new bookings came from migrations?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [21]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think -- okay, so say that number -- there are not just 2 categories. There is actually -- broadly, at a high level, I think the way to think about is about 50% of the business came from new logos. And the rest, half of it, came from existing customers. Some of those existing customer new bookings were from migration and some were just expansion in those accounts that were cloud customers to begin with.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rudy Kessinger, Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC, Research Division - Research Analyst [22]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, you couldn't give any quantitative as to, of that 50%, what percentage of those were from the migration, or no?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ashutosh Roy, eGain Corporation - Co-Founder, Executive Chairman, CEO & President [23]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We're not really -- I don't think we have that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Eric N. Smit, eGain Corporation - CFO [24]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then just lastly real quick. In regards to the new bookings you guys are driving right now, just which modules and capabilities -- I know you touched a lot on the virtual assistant, the AI and everything -- any other modules or capabilities that are really driving the new bookings right now?

So we are seeing 2 things. One is the whole VA, virtual assistant front-end digital engagement. That's an area where we're seeing very good demand. And the other is knowledge and AI in the contact centers, just broadly across all of the contact centers. Those are 2 big areas we see in terms of demand drivers.
