Pharsight Achieves $7.3 Million in Quarterly Revenue

Net Income to Common Stockholders Grows 71% During the Second Fiscal


Company Reiterates Fiscal 2008 Guidance

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pharsight Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: PHST), a leading provider of software and strategic services designed to optimize clinical drug development, today announced financial results for its second quarter of fiscal 2008, ended September 30, 2007. Revenue for the second quarter was $7.3 million, a 17% increase compared with revenue of $6.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2007.

"During the second fiscal quarter of 2008 we achieved the highest quarterly revenue in the Company's history and we believe this illustrates the successful execution of our growth strategy," said Shawn O'Connor, chairman and chief executive officer. "In our software business unit, we grew revenue by more than 16% year-over-year and added our 20th PKS(TM) customer. Additionally, we added our second WinNonLin(R) Autopilot(TM) client and continued to see existing enterprise software clients purchase new licenses for previously deployed products. To date, 35% of our existing installed base of PKS clients have now purchased additional licenses. Within our consulting services businesses, which include Strategic Consulting Services (SCS) and Reporting and Analysis Services (RAS) we added eight new clients, including one that is utilizing both SCS and RAS services. We have continued to reduce our reliance on our top two SCS customers while still achieving 7% year-over-year SCS revenue growth during the fiscal second quarter.

During the first 6 months of fiscal 2008, we achieved revenue growth of 14% and non-GAAP net income that was 8% of revenue," continued Mr. O'Connor. "Based upon our year-to-date performance, we believe we are on track to achieve our full-year financial guidance."

Fiscal 2008 Guidance

The Company is reiterating the following guidance for fiscal 2008:

-- Annual revenue growth of approximately 10% to 15% compared with fiscal

2007, or approximately $27.5 million to $29 million.

-- Gross margin of approximately 64% to 68% of revenue, depending on the

revenue mix between software, software services, strategic consulting

services and reporting and analysis services.

-- Non-GAAP net income, excluding stock-based compensation expense, of

approximately 8% to 12% of revenue.

-- Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of approximately $0.07 to $0.11,

excluding the effects of the following non-cash items: approximately

$0.23 related to the change in the fair value of the conversion feature

of the company's redeemable preferred stock and approximately $0.04

related to stock-based compensation expense.

-- Positive annual cash flow.

"With the continued execution of our growth strategy we remain on track to achieve our full year financial guidance," said Will Frederick, senior vice president and chief financial officer of Pharsight. "Following our preferred stockholders' share conversion to common stock during the first quarter, we subsequently paid off all of our debt this quarter in order to further strengthen and streamline our balance sheet. We believe we have a reasonable plan that should allow us to gain listing status on the Nasdaq Capital Market, which we expect to provide us with an expanded investor audience. This listing status coupled with continued top- and bottom-line growth should put us in a position to capitalize on strategic growth opportunities in the future."

While Pharsight expects that over the long-term revenues and gross margin will increase in response to customer demand, revenue and gross margin in individual quarters may fluctuate in the future for its software business based upon timing of completion of large software installations. In addition, quarterly revenue and gross margin may also be impacted by the Company's consulting businesses based upon timing of completion of milestones for fixed fee contracts and related revenue recognition for these activities.
