i2 Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2004 Results
i2 Technologies, Inc. (OTC: ITWO), a leading provider of demand-driven supply chain solutions designed to enable business agility, today announced results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2004.
i2’s license revenue in the fourth quarter was $17 million. This compares to $17 million of license revenue in the third quarter of 2004 and $15 million in the fourth quarter of 2003. Development services revenue was $7 million in the fourth quarter. This compares to $8 million in the prior quarter and $7 million in the fourth quarter of 2003.
“We made positive progress during 2004, strengthening our balance sheet through equity investments, increasing net deferred revenue excluding contract revenue, and reducing our expense run-rate during the course of the year,” said Sanjiv Sidhu, i2 chairman and CEO. “We launched the i2 Supply Chain Leaders program and saw our customer satisfaction ratings continue to improve. While operational efficiency has improved, there is still much work to do.”
Total fourth quarter 2004 revenue was $84 million, as compared to $111 million in the third quarter of 2004 and $98 million in the fourth quarter of 2003. The majority of the decrease in total revenue from that reported in the third quarter is due to a decrease in the amount of deferred contract revenue recognized in the quarter. Contract revenue is the result of recognition of certain revenue carried on i2’s balance sheet as a portion of deferred revenue as a result of the company’s restatement. The timing of the recognition of deferred contract revenue is difficult to predict and is not typically associated with current business or cash collections.
Total costs and operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2004 were $85 million. This compares to $90 million in total costs and operating expenses in the third quarter of 2004 and $142 million in the fourth quarter of 2003. The company also announced plans to review expenses in the first quarter of 2005 to further reduce expenses and strengthen its balance sheet.
The company reported a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($2 million) or ($0.00) loss per diluted share for the fourth quarter. This compares to net income applicable to common shareholders of $17 million, or $0.04 earnings per diluted share in the third quarter of 2004 and net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($49 million), or ($0.11) loss per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2003.
Fiscal Year 2004 Results
License revenue for the fiscal year 2004 was $59 million, down from $65 million in the prior year. Development services revenue for 2004 totaled $31 million as compared to $27 million for 2003.
Total revenue for 2004 was $389 million, as compared to $495 million for 2003. This includes approximately $73 million of contract revenue in fiscal year 2004 as compared to $126 million in fiscal year 2003.
For the full year 2004, the company reported a net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($3 million), or ($0.01) loss per diluted share, as compared to net income applicable to common shareholders of $0.5 million, or $0.00 earnings per diluted share in 2003.
On December 31, 2004, i2’s cash and investments totaled $286 million, which represents a net increase of $4 million from the balance at September 30, 2004 due to strong cash collections. During the fourth quarter, the company made a semi-annual interest payment of $8 million, as well as its annual Directors and Officers insurance premium payment of approximately $4 million.

More than 150 companies went live with i2 solutions during the course of the year.
The company also announced today that its Board of Directors has approved the implementation of a reverse stock split of the company's outstanding common stock at a 1-for-25 ratio. At the annual meeting of stockholders held December 16, 2004, the company's stockholders granted the i2 Board of Directors discretionary authority to implement a reverse split of the common stock, in the range of 1-for-10 to 1-for-30, anytime before December 16, 2005. The Board is approving the implementation of the reverse split in order to return the company's share price to a level that will satisfy the minimum bid price requirements for re-listing the common stock on the NASDAQ National Market. Once the reverse split is implemented, the company plans to begin the application process for re-listing on the NASDAQ National Market.
The record date for the stock split is Wednesday, Feb. 16 and the split will be effective at 6:01 p.m., EDT, on the same day. On a pre-split basis, i2 has 465,191,033 shares of common stock outstanding. The reverse split will reduce the number of shares outstanding to approximately 18,607,641. In addition, the number of shares of common stock that may be issued upon the exercise of outstanding options and the conversion of outstanding preferred stock will be reduced proportionately. Instead of issuing any fractional shares as a result of the reverse split, stockholders will receive cash payments for such fractions after i2's transfer agent sells all of the aggregated fractional shares of common stock. Except for any changes as a result of the treatment of fractional shares, each holder of i2 common stock will hold the same percentage of common stock outstanding immediately after the reverse stock split as such stockholder held immediately prior to the split.
For more information regarding the reverse stock split, stockholders may review i2's Proxy Statement dated November 16, 2004. As a result of the reverse split, the company's common stock is expected to trade under a new symbol on the over-the-counter Pink Sheets beginning on February 17.
