Excluding certain items, the software company earned $37.1 million, or 17 cents a share. Revenue for the quarter ended Oct. 31 increased 22%, to $299 million from $245.5 million a year ago. Analysts expected earnings of 15 cents a share, before items, on revenue of $293 million, according to Thomson First Call. The stock was up 62 cents, or 2.4%, to $27.02 in after-hours trading.

Verint Systems (VRNT - Get Report), a unit of Comverse, said it earned $7.3 million, or 22 cents a share, up from $5.2 million, or 16 cents a share, a year ago. Excluding certain items, the company earned $8.8 million, or 26 cents a share, in line with analysts' mean estimate.

SimpleTech (STEC) lowered its fourth-quarter revenue guidance to a range of $60 million to $63 million from a previous estimate of roughly $70 million. As a result, the data-storage company expects its earnings will also miss its guidance, which called for a profit of about 4 cents a share. Analysts, on average, had forecast earnings of 4 cents a share and revenue of $70 million. SimpleTech attributed the weaker outlook to a decrease in certain business related to the server sector.
