356% Increase in SaaS Revenues for Second Quarter and 220% Increase in SaaS Revenues Year-to-Date


Horsham, PA, August 12, 2016
— Astea International Inc. (OTCQB: ATEA), a global provider of service management and mobile workforce solutions, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2016.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2016, Astea reported revenues of $5.7 million compared to revenues of $6.5 million for the same period in 2015.  Net loss available to common stockholders for the second quarter was $1.2 million or ($0.33) per share compared to a net loss of $0.4 million or ($0.11) per share for the same period in 2015.  Software license revenues were $0.3 million, compared to $2.2 million for the same period in 2015.  Subscription revenues were $1.1 million compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2015.  Service and maintenance revenues were $4.4 million compared to revenues of $4.1 million for the same period in 2015.  

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016 decreased 11% to $11.0 million compared to $12.4 million in the same six-month period in 2015.  Software license revenues decreased 67% to $1.1 million compared to $3.3 million for the same period in 2015.  Subscription revenues increased 220% to $1.6 million compared to $0.5 million in the same six-month period in 2015.  Service and maintenance revenues were $8.4 million, a 3% decrease compared to revenues of $8.6 million for the same six-month period in 2015.  Net loss available to common stockholders was $2.0 million or ($0.56) per share compared to a net loss of $1.3 million or ($0.37) per share for the same six-month period last year. 

Adjusted EBITDA was ($0.7) million for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 compared to $1.4 million for the same period in 2015. This measure eliminates the variation in operating results that occur from accounting rules related to the deferral of hosting and implementation fees on hosted customers as well as the rules related to the capitalization and amortization of development costs. The details of Adjusted EBITDA are reported in the financial tables below. 

Unfortunately, some of the deals that we originally projected to close in the second quarter, slipped into the third quarter. Due to the extended and complex sales cycles with these large enterprise opportunities it is challenging to accurately predict the timing of these deals. But I am happy to report that we have already concluded some of those deals that slipped,” stated Zack Bergreen, CEO of Astea International. “We continue to see a strong upward trend in the number of companies preferring a cloud deployment model, and all of the new customers that we added this quarter selected our cloud solution to serve as their end-to-end service platform to optimize and grow their business. We remain very encouraged by the adoption rate of our cloud offering and expect strong growth moving forward.

Mr. Bergreen further stated, “The initiatives we’ve taken to expand our partner ecosystem have thus far been successful and our sales pipeline continues to grow as a result of these new strategic relationships. During the second quarter, we successfully entered into a partnership with another value-added reseller. This partnership will enable us to expand our geographic presence in the Middle East, and has already generated a new customer for our cloud solution. Additionally, we are in the final stages of executing partnership agreements, with both complementary technology and implementation partners to further enhance our solution suite as well as expanding our presence in the market.”

Outlook

Mr. Bergreen concluded, “Our professional services group remains very busy, in all of our operating regions, and we have had many new customers successfully go live with their deployments. We are very enthusiastic about our next major product release which we will be introducing to the market. This release contains a substantial number of innovative, market-driven features that will help companies achieve considerable productivity and financial-related improvements for their service operations.”
