Note to Investors: This press release contains certain forward-looking
statements made under the "safe harbor" provisions of the Private Securities
Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Words such as “expects”, “believes”,
“anticipates”, “could”, “will likely result”, “estimates”, “intends”, “may”,
“projects”, “should”, and variations of these words and similar expressions
are intended to identify these forward looking statements. Forward-looking
statements are based on the company’s current expectations and assumptions
regarding its business, the economy and future conditions. A number of risks
and uncertainties could cause actual results to differ materially from those
in the forward-looking statements. These risks include, but are not limited
to, evolving demand for the company's software products and products that
operate with the company's products; the company's ability to sustain license
and service demand; the company's ability to leverage changes in technology;
the company's ability to sustain customer renewal rates at current levels; the
publication of opinions by industry and financial analysts about the company,
its products and technology; the reliability of estimates of transaction and
integration costs and benefits; the entry of new competitors or new offerings
by existing competitors and the associated announcement of new products and
technological advances by them; delays in localizing the company's products
for new or existing markets; the ability to recruit and retain key personnel;
delays in sales as a result of lengthy sales cycles; changes in operating
expenses, pricing, timing of new product releases, the method of product
distribution or product mix; timely and effective integration of newly
acquired businesses; general economic conditions; exchange rate fluctuations;
and, the global political environment. In addition, revenue and earnings in
the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software industry are subject to
fluctuations. Software license revenue, in particular, is subject to
variability with a significant proportion of revenue earned in the last month
of each quarter. Given the high margins associated with license revenue,
modest fluctuations can have a substantial impact on net income. Investors
should not use any one quarter's results as a benchmark for future
performance. For a more detailed description of the risk factors associated
with the company and the industries in which it operates, please refer to the
company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2012 ended January 31, 2012,
