Feb. 3, 2011 (Business Wire) -- Datawatch Corporation (NASDAQ-CM: DWCH), the leader in report activation, today announced results for its first quarter ended December 31, 2010.
Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $4,180,000, as compared to $4,234,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $229,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to net loss of $(199,000), or $(0.03) per diluted share, for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.
As of December 31, 2010, the Company had $7,481,000 in net cash and cash equivalents, an increase of $428,000, or 6 percent, compared to September 30, 2010.
Commenting on the first quarter results, President and CEO Ken Bero said, "Our Monarch desktop business has remained relatively stable over the past few quarters. We had very good results from both our European and Australian operations. And although the enterprise sales revenue numbers did not fully reflect it, Q1 showed some positive trends. We are beginning to see the results of a repositioning of our flagship solution, Monarch Enterprise Server, to better address the "report activation" challenges businesses encounter in unlocking the static information contained within existing reports for better decision making. We closed a significant opportunity in Australia by giving our customer the capability to systematically integrate and join weekly report information from multiple disparate systems, analyze the data and display key performance indicators in a management dashboard. Under the previous processes, weekly and monthly closing reconciliations required for business analysis purposes took 3 to 7 days to manually compile. With our solution, the system has been automated and reconciled information is now available immediately after closing. In addition to the license sale, this opportunity generated substantial services and consulting revenues".
"We were pleased with our operating and net income results for the quarter which were solidly in the black," added Bero. "We have continued to manage expenses, grow our cash position and we have no debt."
