(**) SaaS is a model of delivering technology where a software solution is hosted (cloud computing) as a service for its customers.

Clients do not buy the technology but pay a subscription fee to use it.

Q2 2014 total revenue was EUR 6.9 million, stable in comparison to Q1 2014. The recurring SaaS component of revenue was EUR 5.6 million, down from the same quarter of 2013 as a consequence of the end of customer contracts as part of the technology transition that the company has been experiencing over the last seven quarters.

The level of order intake of the first half, however, showed upward trending, and the company envisages to progressively offset these revenue losses in the next coming quarters. This is visible from the positive evolution of Services in Q2 in comparison to Q1 2014.

Advanced indicators show that, in spite of the revenue decline, the company will maintain over the first semester satisfactory levels of profitability, on Gross Margin, EBITDA (***) and EBIT. The full set of accounts for the first semester will be issued on August 28th 2014.
