JDA Software Announces First Quarter 2003 Results
Scottsdale, Ariz. - April 21, 2003 - JDA® Software Group, Inc. today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2003. JDA reported first quarter 2003 revenues of $41.3 million and software revenues of $7.7 million, compared to total revenues of $59.1 million and software revenues of $19.5 million in first quarter 2002. The Company also reported a GAAP net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.08 per share in first quarter 2003, as compared to net income of $4.5 million, or $0.16 per share in first quarter 2002. These results are consistent with the preliminary first quarter 2003 results announced on April 2, 2003.
The adjusted non-GAAP loss for first quarter 2003 was $0.02 per share, excluding amortization of intangibles ($1.8 million) and relocation costs to consolidate development and support activities ($682,000), compared with adjusted non-GAAP income of $0.20 per share in first quarter 2002, excluding amortization of intangibles ($1.8 million). Cash flow from operations on a per share basis increased by 12% to $0.18 per share in first quarter 2003 from $0.16 per share in first quarter 2002.
“Our retail customers and their suppliers are being directly impacted by uncertain macro economic conditions. As a result, our software licenses declined compared to first quarter 2002,” commented Jim Armstrong, CEO. “This decrease in revenues was offset in part by the cost savings we realized from the reorganization of the Company in fourth quarter 2002 to re-align our cost structure and implement the Customer Value Program.”
“Because JDA remains financially strong, we can continue our significant investments in our customer relations program, our associates’ professional growth and our product development, which will position our Company for returned growth when the market improves,” added Armstrong.
First Quarter 2003 Highlights
· Customer Value Program Advancements: JDA made a substantial investment in its educational center, the Business Management Institute, during the first quarter by expanding professional growth opportunities for its associates. More than 480 associates attended a two and one-half day Portfolio Framework class, offered in 13 offices around the world, to gain a business level understanding of JDA’s comprehensive products and integrated processes that will facilitate improved utilization. Plus 32 customer-facing teams established their charters detailing goals and metrics related to increasing customer value. Over 68% of our direct global sales associates also participated in an intensive two and one-half day sales training course.
· Release of Portfolio 2003.5: The Company launched JDA Portfolio 2003.5, the second major synchronized release of its comprehensive collection of products, in first quarter. Portfolio 2003.5 delivered expanded integration with JDA’s acquired and internally developed applications as well as with third party software including PkMS®, Manhattan Associates’ (Nasdaq: MANH) leading supply chain execution solution. JDA also made significant progress with its .Net migration.
JDA ended the first quarter 2003 with $105.7 million in cash and marketable securities versus $101.9 million at December 31, 2002. The Company generated $5.1 million in cash flow from operations in first quarter 2003 compared to $4.7 million in first quarter 2002. DSOs were 81 days at March 31, 2003 compared to 96 days at March 31, 2002.

We do not believe this press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Nevertheless, some statements, such as Mr. Armstrong's statement that because JDA remains financially strong, the Company can continue its significant investments in customer relations programs, associates’ professional growth and product development, which will position the Company for returned growth when the market improves, could be seen to have forward-looking implications. The occurrence of future events may involve a number of risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to: the risk to our operating results of ongoing uncertain economic conditions and the inherent unpredictability on a quarterly basis of retailers' demands for our products and services; the risk that the CVP initiative will not result in expected benefits, and could result in disruptions to our development, implementation and sales activities due to our reduction in force; and other risks detailed from time to time in the "Risk Factors" section of our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
