  • Professional Services revenues were $37,5 million in the second quarter compared to $38,7 million in the prior year quarter, or a decrease of 3 %, primarily due to a decline associated with industry consulting, fraud, and collections and recovery implementation services, offset by an increase in revenues derived from customer management implementation services.

Bookings Highlights
The bookings for the second quarter were $58,9 million versus $106 million in the same period last year. The company defines a "new booking" as estimated future contractual revenues, including agreements with perpetual, multi-year and annual terms. Management regards the volume of new bookings achieved as one indicator of future revenues, but they are not comparable to, nor should they be substituted for, an analysis of the company's revenues.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights
Cash and cash equivalents, and marketable security investments were $303,9 million at March 31, 2007, as compared to $267,8 million at September 30, 2006. Significant changes in cash and cash equivalents from September 30, 2006 include cash provided by operations of $88,4 million, borrowings under the revolving credit facility of $70 million, $61,8 million received from the exercise of stock options and stock issued under an employee stock purchase plan, and $13,9 million received on the sale of the mortgage product line. Cash used during fiscal 2007 includes $11,7 million related to purchases of property and equipment and $196,4 million to repurchase common stock.

Outlook
The company expects revenues for third quarter fiscal 2007 to be approximately $195 to $200 million and earnings per diluted share to be approximately $0,33 to $0.38. The company expects revenues for fiscal 2007 to be approximately $795 to $805 million and earnings per diluted share to be approximately $1,55 to $1.65.
