Shares of call center software provider Five9 (NASDAQ: FIVN) jumped 7.98% in the after-market session after the company reported an impressive 'beat and raise' first-quarter results that beat analysts' estimates for revenue, free cash flow, and earnings per share (EPS). Revenue and EPS guidance for the full year was raised and exceeded expectations. Guidance for the next quarter also beat. Management was also upbeat about the outcome of investments in international expansion as LTM international revenue grew 48% year-over-year. Overall, the Q1 results paint a positive picture of a healthy quarter for the company. After the initial pop the shares cooled down to $56.09, down 0.56% from previous close.
