SAG QB3 2013, englisch

12 SOFTWARE AG | INTERIM REPORT 3/2013 The trend of positive segment contributions in the first two quarters of the year continued in the third as well. The cost of sales underwent an extreme reduction to €56.1 million (2012: €74.9 million). Sales and marketing costs were slight- ly down year on year at €8.1 million (2012: €8.6 million). This resulted in an increased segment contribution of €1.0 million (€– 0.5 million), which is a further confirmation of the operational turnaround. And it illustrates that the Company’s focus on high-margin consulting services in the core DACH market is also having an overall positive impact on the Consulting business. Consulting Segment report Q3 2013 / YTD 2013 (9 months) The Consulting business line, which has comprised services for the BPE, ETS and IDS Scheer Consulting lines since the beginning of the year, recorded €65.2  million (2012: €83.0 million) in revenue in the third quarter of 2013. This is a 19-percent decline at constant currency. The consulting business was influenced by a high number of leave days due to vacation season in the quarter under ­review. In addition, the drop in revenue was a direct conse- quence of the realignment of the Company’s SAP consulting business and the related withdrawal from unprofitable ­markets. Software AG sold its North American SAP service operations at the beginning of the year. The sale of these operations in the Czech Republic, Hungary and ­Slovakia fol- lowed in the third quarter. This was a consistent step in the Company’s focus on process consulting in German-speaking regions. in € millions Q3 2013 Q3 2012 ∆% ∆% acc YTD 2013 YTD 2012 ∆% ∆% acc Licenses 0.3 0.3 −  −  1.3 1.5 − 13 − 7 Maintenance 1.6 3.7 − 57 − 57 5.1 11.2 − 54 − 55 Product revenue 1.9 4.0 − 53 − 52 6.4 12.7 − 50 − 49 Services & other 63.3 79.0 − 20 − 18 199.3 254.6 − 22 − 20 Total revenue 65.2 83.0 − 21 − 19 205.7 267.3 − 23 − 22 Cost of sales − 56.1 − 74.9 − 25 − 24 − 175.4 − 245.2 − 28 − 27 Gross profit 9.1 8.1 12 19 30.3 22.1 37 41 Sales & marketing − 8.1 − 8.6 − 6 1 − 26.3 − 26.7 − 1 3 Segment result 1.0 − 0.5 −  −  4.0 − 4.6 −  −
