GroupManagementReport Performance of key items on the income statement and cost structure The cost of sales was reduced by 22 percent to €294.6 million (2012: €378.4 million) year on year. The decrease is primarily due to the €87.4 million reduction in the cost of sales for the realigned Consulting business line and for the shrinking ETS line. The simultaneous growth in BPE product revenue led to a more favorable revenue mix and thus to a substantially improved gross profit margin, which rose to 69.7 percent (2012: 63.9 percent) with respect to Group revenue. Gross profit went up slightly to €678.1 million (2012: €668.9 million). in € millions 2013 2012 Change in % Licenses 330,1 318,9 4 Maintenance 375,6 393,3 -5 Services 266,0 333,3 -20 Other 1.0 1,8 -44 Total revenue 972,7 1,047,3 -7 Costs of sales -294,6 -378,4 -22 Gross profit 678,1 668,9 1 Research and development expenses -107,9 -101,1 7 Sales, marketing and distribution expenses -300,1 -246,9 22 General and administrative expenses -73,2 -75,8 -3 Other taxes -7,1 -8,0 -11 Operating result 189,8 237,1 -20 Other income 44,1 24,6 79 Other expenses -35,5 -21,4 66 Financial expense, net -8,4 -8,8 -5 Earnings before income taxes 190,0 231,5 -18 Income taxes -56,0 -66,8 -16 Net income 134,0 164,7 -19 Thereof attributable to shareholders of Software AG 133,8 164,5 -19 Thereof attributable to non-controlling interest 0.2 0.2 Earnings per share (€, basic) 1.60 1.90 -16 Earnings per share (€, diluted) 1.60 1.89 -15 Weighted average number of shares outstanding (basic) 83,702,176 86,784,793 – Weighted average number of shares outstanding (diluted) 83,714,983 86,990,204 – 79 Corporate Governance Report of the Supervisory Board Consolidated Financial Statements Notes Additional Information Group Management Report Business and General Conditions Economic Report Events after the Balance Sheet Date Risk and Opportunity Report Remuneration Report Forecast Takeover-Related Disclosures Statement on Corporate Governance
