Third Quarter 2011 Activities

During the third quarter, SYSTRAN sales amounted to 2,782 KEUR as compared with 2,346 KEUR for the third quarter of 2010, representing an 18.6 % increase. Consolidated sales for the first nine months of the year totalled 8,051 KEUR as compared with 6,497 KEUR for the same period last year. License sales amounted to 1,703 KEUR as compared with 1,386 KEUR in 2010 and represent 61.2% of total sales. During the first nine months, sales generated from software licenses totalled 4,783 KEUR, and make up 59.4% of total sales. Sales for the Professional Services business unit increased when compared with the same period last year. During the first nine months, Professional Services sales totalled 3,268 KEUR, an increase of 49.6% as compared with the same period last year, thanks to continued demand for new orders received from the US Government.

2011 Outlook

SYSTRAN plans to develop the Software Publishing business in 2011, focusing on Server Product sales to corporate customers. SYSTRAN will continue its efforts to market the new version 7 Desktop Product line and develop online and channel sales.

SYSTRAN expects sales to grow for all of 2011 across all business segments before accounting for the impact of the Euro / US Dollar foreign exchange translation. Nevertheless, there is a high degree of uncertainty concerning this outlook because of the current economic environment.

Dispute with the European Commission

The Commission has already partially complied with the General Court's decision by paying SYSTRAN the amounts of 5,685,240 Euros on February 9, 2011 and 6,315,760 Euros on March 14, 2011. However, in spite of the repeated requests from SYSTRAN, the Commission has not paid the costs. On March 4, 2011, the European Commission brought an appeal before the Court of Justice, against the judgement of the General Court delivered on December 16, 2010. On May 13, 2011, SYSTRAN filed its response. The European Commission produced its reply on September 9, 2011. SYSTRAN submitted a rejoinder on October 28, 2011.
