Commenting on the results, Compuware Chief Executive Officer Bob Paul said, "While our fourth quarter results were a disappointment, as a large number of deals we had anticipated closing were pushed into the new fiscal year, we made great strides executing on our strategic initiatives to transform the company while positioning Compuware for improved profitability in 2014 and 2015." He added, "After further analysis, we now believe 60 percent of the deals that did not close in the fourth quarter will close in the first quarter of 2014 and the remaining will close by the end of the year. This reflects the strong demand we are seeing in the market for our APM and Mainframe for APM solutions."
