NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Salesforce.com's (CRM - Get Report) third-quarter earnings beat Wall Street analysts' expectations, pushing up the shares in after-hours trading.

The San Francisco-based cloud-computing company earned 33 cents per share on a non-GAAP basis, generating $788 million in revenue. That's a 35% boost in revenue from a year earlier, with both subscription/support revenue and professional services posting exceptional growth.

Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters were expecting Salesforce.com to earn 32 cents per share on $776.12 million in revenue.

"Salesforce.com is the first enterprise cloud computing company to exceed a $3 billion annual revenue run rate," CEO Marc Benioff said.

Salesforce ended the quarter with $1.4 billion in cash and cash-equivalents.

For the fourth quarter, Salesforce expects earnings per share of 38 cents to 40 cents on a non-GAAP basis, and revenue of $825 million to $830 million. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expect 40 cents per share on $829.88 million in revenue.

For fiscal 2014, Salesforce expects revenue of $3.8 billion to $3.85 billion.
