Daegis, the Roseville-based "electronic discovery" company, reported net income of $157,000 for its first quarter ended July 31.
That compares with a loss of $1.8 million, or 12 cents per share, in the same quarter last year. No earnings per share accompanied the first-quarter profit.
First-quarter revenue was $9.6 million, compared with $11.5 million in the year-ago period.
The company, long known as Unify Corp., renamed itself Daegis in July 2011, one year after it spent $38 million to buy San Francisco software maker Daegis.
"Electronic discovery" generally refers to discovery in civil litigation in connection with exchanging information in an electronic format.
