Telelogic takes measures to meet declining market demand

Telelogic takes measures to meet declining market demand MALMÖ, July 5, 2001 - Telelogic (Stockholm Stock Exchange:TLOG), the world-leading provider of solutions for advanced software development, today announced that the company expects to report revenues for the quarter ending June 30 of between $36 - $37 million (395 - 405 MSEK). That corresponds to a growth of 181 - 188% compared to the same period last year. The quarterly earnings will be negative, as communicated in the previous interim report. Telelogic expects operating income, goodwill amortization excluded, of ($6.4) - ($8.2) million ((70) - (90) MSEK). Market conditions and action program Business factors have continued to deteriorate, above all in the US, but also in Europe and Asia. Telelogic has decided to take measures to meet the declining market demand and the increased uncertainty. Telelogic has previously restructured the business as an effect of the two major acquisitions made during the second half of 2000. The process is now accelerating. With the ambition to create an integrated product suite, one global product division will be created with focus on Telelogic's core products. Support will be organized globally with support centres on fewer locations in the US and Europe. The revenue from the US during the first half-year has been lower than planned. To meet the declining demand, the US organization will be decreased with 20%. Also in the European sales organization adjustments will be made to concentrate the business towards markets generating the highest contribution. Asia has still a positive growth trend with only Australia as an exception. In Australia, reductions will be far- reaching. In all, Telelogic will reduce its employees with approximately 280 persons. Forecast for 2001 and beyond The negative market conditions have resulted in a decision to expand Telelogic's business with more caution during the rest of the year compared with the first half year 2001. The ambition for the full year 2001 is to grow the revenue with 80% - 100% compared to the full year 2000, instead of more than 100% as previously forecasted. The EBITA earnings are predicted to be zero profit excluding restructure cost. The profit for the third quarters is predicted to be negative as the year before, while the fourth quarter is expected to be positive. A lower growth rate combined with a higher cost during the first half year has affected Telelogic cash flow in a negative way. Telelogic has decided to investigate the prospect for a share issue during the third quarter. More information about a prospective share issue will be published in the interim report, July 17 2001. With the actions planned, Telelogic is estimated to move into 2002 with a positive cash flow and a cost level that make positive earnings possible even with a low growth rate. With an integrated product division and a strong market organization, Telelogic is well positioned for continued growth and generation of profit.
