Public Sector

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, total revenue in the public sector segment increased 47%, or $25 million, to $78 million, compared to $53 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. For the six months ended June 30, 2009, total revenue increased by 51% or $51 million, to $152 million, compared to $101 million for the comparable period in 2008. The increases for both the three and six month periods were significant across all revenue types. Revenue growth from acquired businesses was significant for both the three and six month periods as we completed 14 acquisitions since the beginning of 2008 in our public sector segment. It is estimated that acquisitions completed since the beginning of 2008 contributed approximately $23 million to our Q2 2009 revenues and $50 million to our revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2009. In calculating our organic growth, we assume that the companies we've acquired continue, during the 12 months following their acquisition, to achieve revenues at a level consistent with the revenues they achieved during the 12 months preceding their acquisition by Constellation. Actual revenues achieved by each company acquired could be higher or lower than the amounts estimated, however Constellation believes that this method of calculating organic growth provides a reasonable estimate of actual organic growth achieved. Revenues increased organically by $2 million in Q2 2009 and $1 million in the six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same periods in 2008. Organic revenue changes were negligible across all operating groups.

Private Sector

For the quarter ended June 30, 2009, total revenue in the private sector segment decreased 5%, or $1 million, to $24 million, compared to $25 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. For the six months ended June 30, 2009 total revenue decreased by 7% or $4 million, to $47 million, compared to $50 million for the comparable period in 2008. Revenue growth from acquired businesses was significant for both the three and six month periods as we completed nine acquisitions since the beginning of 2008 in our private sector segment. It is estimated that acquisitions completed since the beginning of 2008 contributed approximately $2 million to our Q2 2009 revenues and $3 million to our revenues in the six months ended June 30, 2009. Revenues decreased organically by $4 million in Q2 2009 and $7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2009 compared to the same periods in 2008. The organic revenue decline was primarily driven by the following:

- Homebuilder and Friedman operating groups (decrease of approximately $2.5 million for Q2 and $6 million for the first 6 months). These operating groups continued to feel the effects of the housing slowdown in the U.S. The decline was apparent across all revenue streams as many of our existing and prospective clients have delayed purchasing decisions. Our Homebuilding and Friedman operating groups are significantly affected by decreasing demand for new housing and building products. These groups continue to see decreased demand for their products and services and we believe that demand may decrease further given the weakness in the underlying industries that they serve.

During the quarter, Constellation completed one acquisition for total net cash consideration of approximately $2.7 million, and paid holdbacks related to prior acquisitions of $0.6 million. At June 30, 2009, Constellation's cash position (net of borrowings on our line of credit) increased to negative $25 million, from negative $30 million at December 31, 2008.

Also during the quarter, a new policy in respect of voting for the Company's directors was approved by the Board of Directors. Under the policy, the Company's shareholders will be able to cast separate votes for, or withhold their support from, each candidate for election to the Board of Directors in an uncontested election, rather than voting for an entire slate of directors. If for any one candidate, more votes are withheld than are voted in favour of that candidate, that director would then be required to resign from the Board. A copy of the policy is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

Conference Call and Webcast

Management will host a conference call at 8:30 a.m. (ET) on Thursday, August 6, 2009 to answer questions regarding the results. The teleconference numbers are 416-340-2218 or 866-226-1793. The call will also be webcast live and archived on Constellation's web site at www.csisoftware.com.

Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements herein may be "forward looking" statements that involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Constellation or the industry to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Forward looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, should not be read as guarantees of future performance or results, and will not necessarily be accurate indications of whether or not such results will be achieved. A number of factors could cause actual results to vary significantly from the results discussed in the forward looking statements. These forward looking statements reflect current assumptions and expectations regarding future events and operating performance and are made as of the date hereof and Constellation assumes no obligation, except as required by law, to update any forward looking statements to reflect new events or circumstances.

Non-GAAP Measures

The term "Adjusted EBITDA" refers to net income before deducting interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, loss on held for trading investments related to mark to market adjustments, and other expenses, and before including gain (loss) on sale of short-term investments, marketable securities, other assets, and foreign exchange. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration asset depreciation and the other items listed above. "Adjusted EBITDA margin" refers to the percentage that Adjusted EBITDA for any period represents as a portion of total revenue for that period.

"Adjusted Net Income" means net income plus amortization of intangible assets and future income taxes. The Company believes that Adjusted Net Income is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration amortization of intangibles and future income taxes as these are non-cash expenses that do not necessarily reflect the decrease in economic value of acquisitions. The majority of future income taxes relate to the amortization of intangible assets, and thus are being added back to more closely match the non-cash future tax recovery with the amortization of intangibles. "Adjusted Net Income margin" refers to the percentage that Adjusted Net Income for any period represents as a portion of total revenue for that period.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income are not recognized measures under GAAP and, accordingly, shareholders are cautioned that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income should not be construed as alternatives to net income determined in accordance with GAAP as an indicator of the financial performance of the Company or as a measure of the Company's liquidity and cash flows. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.
