EGHT – 8×8 Inc. (Nasdaq) – (Closing Price on Friday 2/1/08 – $1.22) 

8×8 Inc. reported their Q3 2008 financial results on January 30 and reported record revenues and a small profit.

8×8 reported revenue of 15.8 million which was a 7% increase sequentially and a 19% increase year over year. 8×8 reported net income of 1.39 million and EPS of 0.02 per diluted share. During the quarter, 8×8 sold two of its non-core patents for 1.2 million and accounted for the sale as other income. Without the one time gain related to the patent sale and a gain related to the change in the value of warrant liability 8×8 would have reported a small loss. However, this loss is smaller than the previous quarter and the same quarter last year and the company is still on the right track towards sustained profitability. Overall 8×8 reported a nice quarter.

In the conference call the CEO mentioned a few positive catalysts to look for in the coming year. The CEO stated that the company is seeking to further monetize its intellectual property and to expect the introduction of new services in the coming year. He also said the goal is for consistent profitability going forward.

8×8 is continuing to show improvement in its financial results and I would hold or accumulate more shares.
