Revenue for Q202 amounted to US$29.9 million (SEK 290 million), a decrease of 21 percent (SEK 28 percent) from US$37.8 million (SEK 400 million) in Q201. Compared with the previous quarter and excluding exchange rate effects, revenue increased 2.7 percent, from US$27.8 million (SEK 292 million). On a consecutive basis, new license sales increased 17 percent from Q102. Compared to the same quarter 2001, sales of new licenses and maintenance agreements fell 12 percent. Telelogic has rightsized its services business during the first six months and lowered the number of consultants by 17 percent. Services revenue during the quarter decreased 22 percent compared with Q102. Following strong license sales and a continued successful reduction of overall costs by 8 percent compared with the previous quarter, the company reported a positive operating profit for the third consecutive quarter. Excluding goodwill amortization and costs for restructuring, earnings totaled US$0.9 million (SEK 9.0 million). This corresponds to an operating margin excluding restructuring costs and goodwill amortization of 3.1 percent. The cash flow for the quarter was US$-0.6 (SEK -6.3 million), resulting in a positive cash flow for the first half- year of US$5.6 million (SEK 54.6 million). Liquid funds totaled US$19.0 million (SEK 175.4 million) at quarter end. "Even in a tough global market economy, we have again delivered positive results and are continuing to reduce our cost base and improve productivity," said Anders Lidbeck, President and CEO of Telelogic. "We are sequentially growing our new license business in all regions and we are broadening our market focus beyond telecom. We are now achieving growing license revenues outside the telecom sector compared to the last quarter. This could only be achieved because of the strong commitment and dedication of our unparalleled staff." Telelogic's U.S. operations continued to improve with revenues increasing 3 percent, excluding exchange rate effects, compared with last quarter. For the third consecutive quarter U.S. operations delivered 40 percent contribution margins. The Asian operations also showed improvement with an 18 percent revenue increase over the first quarter. This is partly due to a broader customer focus towards key accounts in the consumer electronics and military/aerospace industries. In Europe demand remains weak, resulting in a slight drop in revenues in Germany and the Nordic region compared with Q102. "Despite market conditions, we remain committed without question to maintaining our technology leadership position. This was evident in the second quarter with the successful launch of Telelogic Tau®/Tester(TM) and Telelogic Synergy(TM) with ActiveCM(TM)," continued Lidbeck. "Tau/Tester is Telelogic's first automated software testing tool with the sophistication and robust functionality of the latest development tools, while Synergy is the industry's first transparent change and configuration management tool. These innovative and unique products will further strengthen our competitive position as well as open up new opportunities in other growth markets."
