What: Shares of NetScout Systems
So what: Revenue totaled $76.5 million, leading to earnings per share of $0.19. Both figures slide past analyst estimates, which were calling for just $74.7 million in sales and $0.18 per share in profit. The top and bottom lines were also on the high end of management's guidance.
Now what: The company also announced the acquisition of Accanto Systems, which is expected to have minimal impact on the current year's non-GAAP results. CEO Anil Singhal said the acquisition will bolster NetScout's packet flow strategy and add important voice service monitoring capabilities. Full-year guidance is forecast between $340 million and $355 million, with adjusted earnings per share in the range of $1.21-$1.30.
