The company reported non-GAAP EPS of 6 cents for the quarter, a penny more than projected.
The company’s closely-watched “bookings” – a measure of users commitments to spend—was a record $329 million, up 15 percent from the year ago quarter, and higher than expected. Revenue also came in higher than projected and 32 percent higher than last year.
