NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Shares of Nuance Communications (NUAN - Get Report) fell in late trades on Thursday after the maker of voice and language technology products missed Wall Street expectations for its fiscal first-quarter results on both the top and bottom lines.
The Burlington, Mass.-based company reported non-GAAP earnings of $$108.5 million, or 34 cents a share, for the three months ended Dec. 31 on revenue of $360.6 million, below the average estimate of analysts polled by Thomson Reuters for a profit of 36 cents a share in the quarter on revenue of $391.6 million.
Nuance hinted at the cause of the shortfall, saying that its relationships with mobile companies have become "more comprehensive and complex" lately, resulting in delayed revenue at times because of longer negotiation cycles and deferrals of recognition until certain deliverables are completed.
