Aug 15, 2013 (12:08 PM EDT)
HORSHAM, Pa., Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Astea International Inc. (NASDAQ: ATEA), a global provider of service lifecycle management and mobility solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, Astea reported revenues of $5.3 million compared to revenues of $8.1 million for the same period in 2012. Net loss for the second quarter was $1.0 million or ($0.29) per share, compared to net income of $1.0 million or $0.25 per share for the same period in 2012. Software license revenues were $0.9 million compared to $2.4 million for the same period in 2012. Service and maintenance revenues were $4.4 million when compared to revenues of $5.7 million for the same period in 2012.
"While we successfully signed some notable deals this quarter, we did not meet our goals on revenues and profitability. However, we optimized our business both strategically and operationally, to better adapt to the increasing customer adoption of the SaaS business model and as a result, these actions are already improving our business and we are now well positioned for growth and increased revenues. We are seeing an increase in the number of sizable companies, around the world, that are interested in our robust end-to-end service management solution. In addition to this positive trend, our professional services backlog is growing. Accordingly, we are confident that we will return to profitability by the end of the year," stated Zack Bergreen, CEO of Astea International. "We have been aggressively pursuing the expansion of our partner ecosystem, and I am happy to announce that we recently finalized another strategic partnering agreement with a large, global technology and consulting company to jointly market, sell and implement our premier service management solution. Additionally, we have been actively and successfully expanding our existing partnerships to pursue even greater geographical coverage."
Mr. Bergreen further stated, "Multiple organizations throughout the world selected Astea's service management solution during the second quarter including 1) a leading barcode printing company, 2) two premier gaming and leisure companies, 3) a provider of voice, data, video, sound and security networks, 4) an HVAC service provider, and, 5) a leading specialty electrical construction and technology company. These new deals were comprised of both on-premise as well as cloud delivery models. We also had multiple customers successfully go live this quarter with a combination of both new implementations as well as upgrades to existing deployments."
