IONA gibt vorläufige Quartalsergebnisse bekannt

(PresseBox) ( Dublin, Ireland & Waltham, Mass, )
IONA® (NASDAQ: IONA), a world leader in high performance integration solutions for mission-critical IT environments, today announced preliminary results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2004.

IONA expects to report second quarter 2004 revenue in the range of $15.0 to $15.5 million. On a U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis, IONA expects to report a net loss for the second quarter in the range of ($0.04) to ($0.06) per share.

“IONA is a strong company in the midst of a new product cycle with Artix,” said Christopher Horn, chief executive officer of IONA. “Customers continue to gain unique business value with their use of Artix, however, market adoption of new technologies has been slower than expected. We are confident that Artix will be successful in the marketplace over the long term and have strengthened our partner network, launched an integrated developer program, and hired experienced management to key positions in the company. We have built a strong foundation and are confident that IONA can build enduring value for our customers, partners and shareholders.”

“We are focused on managing through our new product cycle while maintaining our CORBA leadership,” said Dan Demmer, chief financial officer of IONA. “With approximately $53 million in cash and marketable securities on our balance sheet, and a stable cost base, we are well positioned to achieve sustainable performance over the long term.”
