F5 Posts Revenue of $472.1 million, up 10% YoY

F5 Networks announced revenue of $483.6 million, up 2 percent from $472.1 million in the prior quarter and 10 percent from $440.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2014. GAAP net income was $93.2 million ($1.29 per diluted share), compared to $85.7 million ($1.18 per diluted share) in the prior quarter and $79.5 million ($1.05 per diluted share) in the third quarter a year ago.

“Solid sequential and year-over-year revenue growth during the quarter was driven primarily by continuing growth in software sales,” said Manny Rivelo, F5 President and Chief Executive Officer. “Within the past three years, quarterly revenue from the sale of software modules and virtual editions has more than doubled, accounting for more than a third of product revenue in Q3. As more of our customers deploy hybrid solutions and adoption of our software modules increases, we believe this trend will continue, augmented by a steady ramp in sales of our cloud-based Silverline subscription offerings. From a vertical market perspective, Enterprise and US Federal were significant contributors to the quarter’s revenue gains. Within our geographical regions, the US, the UK and northern Europe all delivered solid year-over-year growth."
