Guidewire Software Announces Fourth Quarter And Fiscal 2012 Financial Results

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of core system software to property and casualty insurers, today announced its financial results for the quarter and fiscal year ended July 31, 2012.

“Our fourth quarter exceeded our expectations for both revenue and profitability, capping a year with total revenue growth of 35%, recurring revenue growth of 28%, and increasing market traction,” said Marcus Ryu, Chief Executive Officer of Guidewire Software. “Our strategy to focus on winning PolicyCenter and complete InsuranceSuite sales in fiscal 2012 — including at very large insurers — has been successful, and is validated by our results. These results included a 29% increase in the number of customers licensing at least one of our core system solutions, for a total of 130 insurers.”

Ryu added, “We believe the $1.2 trillion insurance industry is still in the early days of the inevitable replacement of its legacy core systems with flexible, upgradeable next-generation software. We also believe that Guidewire is well positioned to capture a disproportionate share of this major opportunity over time, and our investments across technology, sales, and services during 2013 are focused on extending our market leadership position and driving further market share gains.”
