“We are successfully managing our business through this tough economic environment,” said Karl Lopker chief executive officer of QAD. “Continued prudent expense management contributed to an increased cash balance year-to-date, as well as meaningful profitability in the recent quarter. While many global economic indicators are still mixed, some of our customers are starting to show increased confidence. As signs of a global recovery begin to emerge, we believe we are well positioned to take advantage of improvements in the manufacturing sector, and look forward to continuing to work closely with our customers as their businesses grow.”

For the first nine months of fiscal 2010, revenue totaled $162.5 million, versus $204.1 million for the first nine months of fiscal 2009. Net income for the fiscal 2010 year-to-date period was $0.7 million, or $0.02 per fully diluted share, including stock compensation expense of $0.08 per fully diluted share net of tax.

Note to Investors: This press release contains certain forward-looking statements made under the “safe harbor” provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. A number of risks and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. These risks include, but are not limited to, evolving demand for the company’s software products and products that operate with the company’s products; the company’s ability to sustain license and service demand; the company’s ability to leverage changes in technology; the company’s ability to sustain customer renewal rates at current levels; the publication of opinions by industry and financial analysts about the company, its products and technology; the reliability of estimates of transaction and integration costs and benefits; the entry of new competitors or new offerings by existing competitors and the associated announcement of new products and technological advances by them; delays in localizing the company’s products for new or existing markets; the ability to recruit and retain key personnel; delays in sales as a result of lengthy sales cycles; changes in operating expenses, pricing, timing of new product releases, the method of product distribution or product mix; timely and effective integration of newly acquired businesses; general economic conditions; exchange rate fluctuations; and, the global political environment. In addition, revenue and earnings in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software industry are subject to fluctuations. Software license revenue, in particular, is subject to variability with a significant proportion of revenue earned in the last month of each quarter. Given the high margins associated with license revenue, modest fluctuations can have a substantial impact on net income. Investors should not use any one quarter’s results as a benchmark for future performance. For a more detailed description of the risk factors associated with the company and the industries in which it operates, please refer to the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2009 ended January 31, 2009.
