New product growth added significantly to the bottom line as new customers for Horizon™ for SAP® grew by more than 100% and its sales were up by over 150% from the prior quarter.

"With the introduction of our new product, Horizon™ for SAP®, and the addition of a record number of new customers, fiscal 2005 has been an exciting and rewarding year.
