15 04 SOFTWARE AG’S SHARE 09 Interim Management Report 22 interim Financial Statements 30 Notes to the Interim Financial Statements 44 Service Based on the expectation that development of the trad­ itional mainframe business will continue to decline, Soft- ware AG reduced costs in this division. The cost of sales in the quarter under review dropped by 21 percent to €3.1 million (2012: €3.9 million). Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 7 percent and research and develop­ment expenses by 2 percent. The positive performance of license sales combined with a stringent cost control policy led to segment earnings on par with the previous year at €52.8 million (2012: €53.0 million). The segment’s profit margin improved to 70 percent (2012: 68 percent) in the quarter under review. Enterprise Transaction Systems (ETS) Segment report Q2 2013 / YTD 2013 (6 months) The traditional Enterprise Transaction Systems (ETS) data- base business generated €75.8 million (2012: €77.9 million) in revenue for licenses, maintenance and services associated with the Adabas-Natural product families. This is a 2-percent increase at constant currency, which exceeded expectations. This performance resulted mainly from new orders that were placed early in the year leading to higher license revenue. ETS licenses rose to €32.6 million (2012: €30.1 million) in the second quarter. Maintenance revenue was within the projected range at €43.1 million (2012: €47.6 million). The positive performance of ETS license revenue emphasizes the fact that Software AG’s long-standing database solutions represent a key technology to a broad community of customers. in € millions Q2 2013 Q2 2012 ∆% ∆% acc YTD 2013 YTD 2012 ∆% ∆% acc Licenses 32.6 30.1 8 % 16 % 53.6 58.8 − 9 % − 4 % Maintenance 43.1 47.6 − 9 % − 7 % 86.3 95.2 − 9 % − 6 % Product revenue 75.7 77.7 − 3 % 2 % 139.9 154.0 − 9 % − 6 % Other 0.1 0.2 −  −  0.4 0.5 −  −  Total revenue 75.8 77.9 − 3 % 2 % 140.3 154.5 − 9 % − 6 % Cost of sales − 3.1 − 3.9 − 21 % − 6.9 − 7.5 − 8 % Gross profit 72.7 74.0 − 2 % 133.4 147.0 − 9 % Sales & marketing − 13.5 − 14.5 − 7 % − 27.3 − 29.7 − 8 % Research & development − 6.4 − 6.5 − 2 % − 12.9 − 13.2 − 2 % Segment earnings 52.8 53.0 0 % 93.2 104.1 − 10 % SIGNIFICANT EVENTS DURING THE REPoRTING PERIOD 09 FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE 12 FINANCIAL POSITION 19 EMPLOYEES 20 OPPORTUNITIES AND RISKS 20 EVENTS AFTER THE BALANCE SHEET DATE 21 OUTLOOK 21
