Exceeds Revenue Guidance Advances Sales Transformation Drives Operational Integration Progress CARY, N.C., Nov. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SciQuest, Inc. (Nasdaq:SQI), a leading provider of cloud-based business automation solutions for spend management, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013. Stephen Wiehe, President and Chief Executive Officer of SciQuest, said, "The third quarter was characterized by good execution, strong results and advancement against our strategic priorities. We drove the sales transformation forward while attracting new customers, generating healthy cross-selling and rebuilding sales momentum. These efforts contributed to non-GAAP revenue that exceeded the top end of the guidance range and increased 33 percent from a year ago. They also helped drive non-GAAP EPS to the high end of expectations. Meanwhile, operational integration of CombineNet, which we acquired on August 30 th, is on track, and we are pleased with the initial levels of customer interest in the rest of our software suite. As a result, we are well positioned for success in the fourth quarter and beyond, including progress towards our long-term revenue growth and profitability targets."
