ShoreTel recently released their financial results for the third quarter fiscal year 2011. They stated the total revenue for the company was $51.6 million, a 39 percent increase from the previous year. They also declared that the GAAP gross margin for the third quarter was 68 percent and that they currently had $102.6 million in cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments available.

The financial report noted operational highlights of the third quarter, including the expanded partnership between ShoreTel and Polycom.

The company predicts the overall revenue for the next quarter to be somewhere between $53 million to $56 million, with a GAAP gross margin around 66 to 67 percent. The GAAP operating expenses are expected to be between $38 and 39 million, including $2.5 million that is related to stock-based compensation and the distribution of acquisition-related intangibles.
