BroadSoft, Inc. (?BSFT) is set to release its Q1 2014 earnings report at 8:30 am, Eastern Standard Time on Monday, May 5, 2014, before the market opens. The earnings report will be simultaneously released via a live conference call and a live audio webcast on the company’s website.

Corporate Guidance

For the 4th quarter ending Dec. 31, 2013, BroadSoft’s stock price closed at $27.21. Since then, the stock price dropped 19% and is currently trading in the $24.50 - $25.50 range. Company guidance predicts Q1 2014 revenue between $42 million and $47 million with an EPS of $0.10. These figures are considerably less than what BroadSoft posted in Q4 2013 but are on par with Q3 2013 amounts.
