BroadSoft tanks on Q3 miss, light guidance

  • BroadSoft (BSFT) shares tank 18.1% AH after the company missed expectations in Q3 and issued disappointing guidance.
  • Gross margin fell by 5% to 75% in Q3, while opex grew 36% Y/Y to $35M, considerably outpacing revenue growth of 7%.
  • Management expects revenue in Q4 of $47M-$53M (vs. consensus of $54.9M) and EPS of $0.34-$0.49 ($0.51).
  • The situation may have been foreshadowed by what happened to peers AudioCodes and Sonus, which slumped last week on lighter-than-expected earnings/guidance after significant run-ups.
  • PR, Conference call (webcast)
