Is that some maybe slippage out of this year or maybe some of the longer deal cycle, though, this year closing in next year? I think, in general, though, if you look at what we’ve been talking about, we made a lot of changes last year as we brought Robbie on board. I mean, when you look at the kind of macroeconomic environment right now with coronavirus and all that, we said we haven’t actually taken into account any changes based on that. And we said, I think a lot of the changes in the execution, you’ll see it in the numbers coming in the back half of the year. And so it makes sense really that the leverage and the business momentum that we’ll see from these initiatives is really more in the back half of the year. We give guidance based on our best picture of the business today.
The best online e-commerce website has a simple and easy-to-navigate design. We build great websites for authors since that is what we do best. That’s great. So you did you’re just the angel round, or did you do series A or what was that considered? There are some great studies on the brain. I want to thank the team for another great quarter, for hitting the Rule of 40 for the fourth consecutive quarter, and for delivering our second quarter of 30% plus growth. 0.09. Lower revenue and the lack of a tax benefit enjoyed during the second quarter of 2015 drove the decline in earnings. Oh, and LivePerson operates as a highly scalable software business with 70%-plus gross margins, so not only will revenues roar higher over the next few years, but big revenue growth will power big profit growth, too. It’ll show up in revenue numbers, right, given the subscription-based business model in the middle of next year. In addition, vast majorities of consumers now report they’d be more likely to do business with – and spend more with – brands that allow them to message rather than call.
And so we highlight the SNCF example as a company we started working with two years ago, had an amazing launch that was a huge success, and now they’re shifting the entire business over to us. These companies, Zoom and Foresight are two that we referenced. So, we feel go about where we are with them, but they are opening up different opportunities and they’re not-ones we are traditionally are going after, which is really good. There’s international expansion. When you look at Southeast Asia and Asia as a whole, South America, like we’re just starting to get these regions going. But there’s cameras, but then I haven’t had the opportunity to actually like just sit and talk to them. And, like academic libraries everywhere, the few questions NCSU picks up from virtual reference does very little to help make up for the 62,000 (down 51 percent) reference questions per year lost from the peak reference statistics of 1996. Not far down the street from UCLA is the Santa Monica Public Library. But as far as how you approach your guidance setting methodology between Tyler leaving and all the uncertainty out there, do you consider potentially maybe widening out the ranges for your guidance beyond typical in order to account for the uncertainty?
We have a fairly good methodology. It shows that we continue to have a strong technology lead in the sales cycle. Yeah. I would say we’ve looked at that pretty deeply across the entire parts of the Company in terms of making sure that we can continue to serve our customers, right, whether that’s on the technology operation side, certainly, on the sales side or the engineering side. But at the top level, your question is, we don’t think that working at home is going to slow us down in terms of our ability to deliver for our customers. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Okay. And just similarly, on the implementation side of the business, from a services side of the business, considering that you guys do have a fairly heavy lift from an implementation standpoint, how are you guys thinking about getting customers up and running with some of the travel restrictions around getting people on-site to do the work? The hardest parts are behind us.
