What: Shares of Jive Software (Nasdaq: JIVE  ) have jumped today by as much as 21% after the company reported earnings yesterday.

So what: Revenue in the third quarter rose 39% to $28.9 million, with product revenue driving that gain by increasing 48%. That all resulted in a non-GAAP net loss of $5.6 million, or $0.09 per share. That was better than the $0.11 per share loss that analysts were expecting.

Now what: Jive also announced the acquisitions of Meetings.io and Producteev, the total sum for both was just $7.6 million.
