''During this fiscal year we've improved every important metric with increases in revenue, software sales, earnings and cash,'' said Chip Drapeau, president and CEO, MRO Software. ''This year's results were driven by the increased adoption of MAXIMO's Web-architecture, increased sales of our IT Asset Management solution and a continuation of our high customer retention rates delivered by our support and services organizations. Based on the continuing trends in MAXIMOﾮ and MAXIMO MainControlﾮ sales, our focus on vertical industry solutions, and the Company's solid financial fundamentals, I believe we are well-positioned for the future.''
''I'm pleased with the continued improvement of the Company's financial metrics,'' said Peter Rice, executive vice president and CFO, MRO Software. ''Our focus on profitability, improved operating margins and cash generation is reflected in the strong results we reported today.''
Rice continued, ''For fiscal year 2004, the Company expects total revenues will grow by approximately 5% above fiscal 2003 results. We believe that our operating margins will continue to increase and that will result in improved earnings that are expected to be in the range of $0.30-$0.40 per share on a GAAP basis and $0.40-$0.50 per share on a pro forma basis. As consistent with our prior performance, the Company expects a majority of the anticipated revenue growth to occur in the second half of the fiscal year. Specifically, in the first quarter of fiscal 2004 we expect revenues to be in the range of $43 to $45 million, GAAP earnings to be in the range of $0.03 to $0.05 per share, and pro forma earnings to be in the range of $0.05 to $0.07 per share.''
