Stocks in this article: GWRE

Guidewire Software, Inc. (NYSE: GWRE), a provider of software products for Property/Casualty (P/C) insurers, today announced its financial results for the fiscal quarter ended October 31, 2013.

“Our first quarter results reflected our customary seasonality, but exceeded expectations for both revenue and profitability,” said Marcus Ryu, Chief Executive Officer of Guidewire Software. “We see good validation for the investments we are making in our existing products and in new initiatives that expand our market opportunity. We also announced new capabilities in InsuranceSuite8, which were positively received by customers at our Connections user conference in October. We also added three paying Guidewire Live customers and have since closed the first sale of our new data management capabilities.”

Ryu added, “Based on our pipeline and long-term view of global P/C industry demand for legacy core system replacement, we are investing to expand on our leadership position and pursue opportunities that we expect to lead to sustained revenue growth and profitability in the years ahead.”
