Management Comments:

"Another good quarter, fueled by accelerated organic growth, helped second quarter and first half 2008 revenue exceed expectations and set a new CIBER high. More importantly, we continued to invest in our project solutions transition and achieved earnings growth over 2007's similar period," said Mac Slingerlend, CIBER's President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are encouraged that the U.S. Commercial Division is showing revenue vitality, that Europe continues to perform robustly, and that our Federal Division was able to sequentially improve its results for the first time in several quarters. These positives overcame a mixed quarter from our US ERP group, where some projects have been concluding successfully, while others have had some struggles and new starts have been delayed. That said, with challenged industry growth, our operational leadership and technical talent are matching up very well and taking share from our domestic and international competitors. We have upgraded our expectations for all of 2008 in the Outlook section below."

2Q08 Operational Highlights US Commercial and IT Outsourcing (ITO) Divisions -- Organic revenue growth in this Division of 11% was its highest growth rate since 1999. -- Year-over-year results were fueled by stable headcounts, higher productivity and bill rates. European Division -- Revenue grew a robust 53% (30% of which was organic growth) to $116.0 million for 2Q08, the first time its revenue exceeded $100 million in a quarter in our history. -- Improved results in most every country helped European operations achieve an 8.6% EBITA margin and its highest ever quarterly result. -- An acquisition of a smaller, high-end SAP consultancy in Norway further enhances CIBER's Nordic SAP competency. -- Contract wins remained strong and geographically broad-based. State & Local Government Division -- Gross profit margins, a targeted area for progress, improved sequentially 120 basis points to 24.9% for 2Q08 and are positioned to improve further as the year proceeds. -- The pipeline of opportunities for this division continues to be very solid. Federal Government Division -- Improved operating results were driven by higher productivity and contract renewals. -- We are continuing to prepare and submit bids as a prime contractor, while adding to our capture leadership this quarter also. We are hopeful the second half of 2008 will begin to bear fruit in this regard, and we continue to believe 2009-2011 will be a meaningful growth period. CIBER Enterprise Solutions Division (CES) (US ERP) -- Improved results in our Oracle Practice activity led CES this quarter. -- The SAP Practice experienced reduced contributions, but was buoyed by prospects of its enhanced sales and delivery teams and its pipeline of opportunities. Eastern Asia-Pacific Operations -- Australia and New Zealand continued to post solid operating results. -- China will be assisting the UK in an international SAP retail sector client new rollout.
