Accordingly, the Company expects an increase in BPE revenue between 16 and 22 percent (at constant currency) for fiscal year 2013. Revenue in the ­traditional ETS database business will likely fall by 4 to 9 per- cent (at constant currency). Taking into account the add­ itional investments for the expansion of sales and marketing, earnings per share should be between €1.70 and €1.80 in 2013. Given the increasingly difficult market environment influencing the entire software industry and possible post- ponement of large-volume license agreements, as seen in the second quarter, Software AG points out that the results at the end of the year could be at the low end of the given ranges. Total revenue is expected to be slightly down year- on-year.
