“Our results serve as evidence that healthy demand for e-commerce solutions continued, despite a tough economy,” says president and CEO Bob Burke. “In fact, many aspects of this economy are forcing companies to invest in e-commerce in order to drive revenue at a lower cost.”
Adds senior vice president and chief financial officer Julie Bradley: “Revenue, license bookings and net income were at the high end or exceeded our previously stated guidance ranges. Based on our pipeline, healthy trends in our business and continued focus on cost containment, we remain optimistic about our ability to post revenue and earnings growth in the second half of 2009.”
