"In 2007, our CORBA business remained predictable and profitable," said Peter Zotto, CEO, Iona Technologies. "Our two acquisitions, C24 and LogicBlaze, have performed well while adding two new lines of business and diversifying our revenue base. We expect the new products will provide growth in two attractive market segments and will complement our existing Artix product line."
Zotto added that, "intense reviews of bigger deals toward the end of the year resulted in delays with specific customers at quarter-end, impacting our overall results and Artix, in particular."
"We are going into 2008 with a very solid financial base," said Christopher Mirabile, CFO, Iona Technologies. "Iona generated $11.7 million of cash from operations in 2007. Our two acquisitions are on track to be accretive in 2008. To protect our profitability and achieve our target operating margin, we have taken action to reduce our projected annualized expenses by approximately $8 million."
