On February 1, 2012, the Company and Software International entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (as amended, the “SPA”) with Archipelago Holdings (the “Buyer”), an affiliate of Vista Equity Holdings, for the sale of the Company’s indirect share holdings in CDC Software. The purchase price under the SPA for the Company’s share holdings of CDC Software is $10.50 per share, in cash, or approximately $249,788,301.

Investor Alert

ATLANTA--()--CDC Software Corporation (CDCSY), a global enterprise software provider of on-premise and cloud deployments, today announced that it is considering potential steps it may take in the event its American Depositary Shares representing class A ordinary shares (“ADSs”) are delisted by NASDAQ, and what alternatives it may have to maximize liquidity for a continued market for its ADSs in the Pink OTC Market.

The Company has also been considering several ways in which it might reduce the burdens associated with its public reporting status in light of its previously-reported Form 20-F filing delinquency, resignation of its external auditors in November 2011 and the bankruptcy proceedings involving its parent, CDC Corporation.

Upon any delisting, CDC Software would be eligible to voluntarily deregister under Section 12(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) and to suspend its reporting obligations under Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act. The Company has therefore been considering whether following any NASDAQ delisting, it should deregister its ADSs under the Exchange Act and become a non-reporting company.

As of the date hereof, CDC Software has made no decision to voluntarily delist or deregister under the Exchange Act; however, the Company’s Board of Directors has been discussing several considerations relating to its status as an Exchange Act reporting company, including, without limitation, the potential impact of delisting and deregistration on minority shareholders, potential cost savings and others.

The Company intends to continue to consider its alternatives with respect to the foregoing in conjunction with the January 19, 2012 hearing in front of Nadsaq with respect to the reinstatement of the trading of its ADSs and will make a further filing or announcement following the date any decision is made

Third quarter 2011 Results

For the third quarter of 2011, Non-GAAP revenue(a) was $53.4 million and Non-GAAP net income(a) was $4.6 million, or $0.17 per share, compared to Non-GAAP revenue of $54.2 million and Non-GAAP net income of $6.9 million, or $0.24 per share in the third quarter of 2010.

Overall, earnings for CDC Software in the third quarter of 2011 have continued to be impacted by increased investments in sales and marketing, R&D as well as increased expenses for certain legal and governance matters related primarily to the litigation and settlement of Ross Systems’ Sunshine Mills lawsuit and the investigation undertaken by the special committee of the board of directors.

Share Buyback: 

Between August 2009 and Sept. 30, 2011, CDC Software, management, Peter Yip and family members and certain affiliates of the company, have purchased an aggregate of approximately 1.7 million shares at an average price of $7.56 per share. The company’s 10b5-1 repurchase plan is no longer in effect and company repurchases of its shares have ceased as of October 2011.

Comments:

“CDC Software is an independent public company that has a fiscally-sound foundation with virtually no debt,” Wong noted. “However, confusion continues to exist in the market between CDC Corporation and CDC Software, and this important distinction is often overlooked. While CDC Corporation’s bankruptcy filing does not significantly affect the day-to-day operations and assets of CDC Software, we anticipate that CDC Corporation’s Chapter 11 filing will have a significant adverse impact on CDC Software’s revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011. We have taken, and are continuing to take, affirmative, proactive steps to help address this situation, but we believe that this effect will continue, to some extent, until CDC Corporation emerges from the Chapter 11 process.”

Mr. Wong added, “It is also worth emphasizing that contrary to some of the inaccurate and confusing messages communicated by competitors to our current customers and prospects, CDC Software has not filed for bankruptcy and our positive operating results is testament to the financial health and viability of our organization.

“Despite the several, significant challenges we have faced, we believe we achieved a solid performance during Q3 2011,” Wong said. “Although we continue to face additional issues, as disclosed in our recent public filings, we continue to remain committed to delivering world-class solutions to our customers by continuing to invest in our products and providing outstanding customer service.”

Second Quarter 2011 Results

Total Non-GAAP recurring revenue, which CDC Software defines as Non-GAAP maintenance plus SaaS revenue, increased to $30.7 million in the second quarter of 2011, from $27.8 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Non-GAAP net income(a) was $2.2 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to Non-GAAP net .$0.28 per share in the second quarter of 2010.

“We are pleased with our Q2 2011 results,income of $80 million, or  including an improvement in revenue on a sequential quarterly basis as well as the growth in our pipeline,” said Bruce Cameron, president of CDC Software. “While our cloud business has been seeing good progress from a revenue growth perspective, we are evaluating the synergies of each of our completed cloud acquisitions with respect to the company’s cross-sell strategy, as well as how each of these businesses impacts the company’s overall profitability both in the short and longer term. Indeed, our profitability in Q2 2011 was impacted primarily by continued increases in spending for sales and marketing, product engineering and litigation, however, we believe that we have also continued to position ourselves for higher organic growth in our business. With higher spending in sales and marketing, we have already seen increases in our sales pipeline.”

Cameron added, “Notable sales wins included a seven digit renewal and add-on SaaS deal of CDC TradeBeam for a leading clothing retailer, and key new logo customers for CDC Factory that included a leading cosmetic and beauty company, as well as a chemical manufacturer, both new markets for this business.”

“We are pleased with our solid top line results and the progression of our cloud business in the second quarter of 2011,” said John Clough, interim CEO of CDC Software. ”While our profitability has been impacted by a variety of factors mentioned earlier, we plan to continue evaluating our investment programs relative to our expansion plans, including further investment in the cloud, as well as growth in regions like Brazil, Russia, India, and China. While there are currently negative drivers in the global economy which are beyond our control, we plan to focus on cash preservation and growth as we execute on our corporate strategy.”

First Quarter Results:

ATLANTA & SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CDC Software Corporation (NASDAQ: CDCS), a hybrid enterprise software provider of on-premise and cloud deployments, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. For the first quarter of 2011, Non-GAAP revenue was $52.6 million and Non-GAAP net income was $3.1 million, or $0.11 in Non-GAAP earnings per share, compared to Non-GAAP revenue of $51.7 million and Non-GAAP net income of $8.0 million, or $0.28 in Non-GAAP earnings per share in the first quarter of 2010.

"During the first quarter of 2011, we saw solid growth in our Cloud business despite the first quarter typically being lower than other quarters," said Bruce Cameron, president of CDC Software. "While our profitability was impacted primarily by the upfront costs associated with our Cloud investments, which we expect to continue in the foreseeable future, we are positioning ourselves for higher organic growth in that business. Our increased marketing investments also included a totally re-designed website and several scheduled user conferences, trade shows and marketing programs. We believe that we are starting to see returns on these investments. Our recurring revenue as a percentage of total revenue in the first quarter of 2011 was at 57 percent, compared to 48 percent in the first quarter of 2009, and we believe that will continue to grow. As we have previously stated, our strategy is to develop recurring revenue streams reaching closer to 70 percent of total revenue over the next few years, after completion of our planned SaaS acquisitions and our strategic investments in SaaS companies.

Comments & Business Outlook
“So far, we have completed three cloud acquisitions and are on track to complete more by the end of the year, as well as execute a number of strategic investments and partner relationships like we recently did with Marketbright and eBizNET. In fact, earlier this week, we announced our signing of a term sheet with our largest potential SaaS acquisition to date. As a result, our goal is to reach a $50 million cloud revenue run rate on an annualized basis and an annualized total recurring revenue of $150 million in the first quarter of 2011. With this momentum, we feel confident that our recurring revenue can reach more than 60 percent of our total revenue by the first quarter of 2011 which is more than half way to our goal of 70 percent. Another exciting trend we have seen is that our second quarter to date sales pipeline has increased by approximately 60 percent compared to the same period in the second quarter in 2009.”
