The software company's better-than-expected fiscal second-quarter earnings report last month has caused (INTA) stock to show strength by rocketing.
On Feb. 6, Intapp reported a profit, which was higher than what was forecasted. The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company earned an adjusted 3 cents a share on sales of $84.7 million in the quarter ended Dec. 31. This is compared to the analysts' poll by FactSet, which predicted a loss of 3 cents a share on sales of $80.5 million. In the year-earlier period, Intapp broke even on sales of $64.7 million.
Intapp provides cloud-based software applications that help private capital, investment banking, legal, accounting, and consulting firms meet client, investor and regulatory requirements.
"We're targeting the professional and financial services industry which is actually very large and overlooked, but underserved," said John Hall, Chief Executive. He added that Intapp's software "has been designed specifically for the unique operating and compliance needs of these firms."
