Software AG confirms its outlook for the full fiscal year, which was released at the beginning of 2013 with the an- nual results for 2012. Following the end of the third quarter, the Company further specifies its forecast as follows: The Management Board continues to expect an increase in BPE revenue between 16 and 22 percent (at constant cur- rency) for fiscal year 2013. Revenue in the traditional ETS database business is anticipated to fall by 4 to 9 percent (at constant currency). The forecast for earnings per share was set between €1.70 and €1.80 in January 2013—without taking into account any special effects arising during the year (e.g. share buyback program, restructuring costs, ac- quisitions and associated costs). Adjusted for these effects, earnings per share should be within the indicated range. Given the increasingly difficult overall market climate and as communicated with the half-year results, Software AG points out that operating earnings could be toward the low end of the projected ranges despite the typically strong fourth quarter.
