Software license revenues increased 101% to $3.3 million compared to $1.7 million for the same period in 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA was $1.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 compared to $0.2 million for the same period in 2014.

The details are reported in the financial tables below.
“I am pleased to announce a solid increase in license revenues, for the quarter, generated from both new and existing customers. These results reflect our ongoing success and commitment in meeting the needs of leading worldwide organizations for our highly sophisticated and proven service lifecycle management solution,” stated Zack Bergreen, CEO of Astea International. “The new business we generated this quarter add to the existing healthy backlog of professional services work.

We are also very excited about the new product release that we will be announcing shortly.
