Consolidated Revenue










SaaS (**)




















(H1 2013 Figures
non audited)

(*) Percentages calculated on exact numbers, not the rounded numbers shown
(**) 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 2013 revenue grows 6% compared to Q1 2013, with the SaaS (**) component up 2% and the Services strongly up (+29%).

The SaaS (**) performance is a result of strong upsell to the existing customer base, reflecting the value derived by customers and the increased stickiness and usage of Hubwoo intellectual property.

The strong improvement in the services component of revenue is the result of net new projects, both in the existing customer base and with new customers. The potential growth that Hubwoo can derive from recently signed channel partnerships is not yet reflected in these figures.

The comparison to last year's figures still shows a decline as a result of the market impact that M&A activity in our industry had on our business last year. For the past few quarters the company has discussed the transition period we are in to build new pipeline and move our business forward. Advance indicators of profitability also show a dramatic improvement. Audited profitability figures will be communicated at the end of August 2013.
