JDA Software Announces Expected First Quarter Results

(PresseBox) (, ) JDA Software Announces Expected First Quarter Results

Scottsdale, Ariz. - April 2, 2003 - JDA® Software Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: JDAS) today announced preliminary financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2003. Based on unaudited results, JDA anticipates total revenues of approximately $41 million, and software revenues of approximately $7.7 million, compared to total revenues of $59.1 million and software revenues of $19.5 million, in first quarter 2002. The Company expects to report a GAAP net loss per share of approximately $0.08 to $0.09 for the first quarter 2003, compared to net income of $0.16 per share last year. These anticipated results are preliminary and based on partial information and management assumptions. The Company plans to announce its final results for the quarter on April 21, 2003, and will remain in a quiet period until then.
The company stated that no large deals ($1 million or greater) were signed during the quarter due to growing uncertainty about global economic conditions and increased international tensions. Cash flow from operations remained positive during the quarter, and the company ended the quarter with approximately $105 million in cash and investments.
“Our results were heavily impacted by two factors this quarter. First, weak economic conditions, including our customers’ own poor sales, have impacted spending. Every geographic region in which we operate experienced increased delays in spending decisions as a result of an apparent lock down on budgets. Second, the Customer Value Program impacted revenues, particularly services revenues, to a greater extent than anticipated because of the heavy involvement of our services personnel in the program’s rollout, and the reorganization of our sales organization,” commented Chief Executive Officer Jim Armstrong. “Although disruptive, the investment in our customer relations at a time like this will pay off in the short run in terms of improved cash collections, and in the long run in terms of growth as confidence returns.”
