  • Our international sales and operations subject us to additional risks and challenges that can adversely affect our business operations and financial results.

  • We could be subject to additional tax liabilities.
  • Our financial results may be adversely affected by changes in accounting principles applicable to us.
  • Servicing our debt requires a significant amount of cash, and we may not have sufficient cash flow from our business to pay our substantial debt.

  • The requirements of being a public company and a growing and increasingly complex organization may strain our resources, divert management’s attention and affect our ability to attract and retain executive management and qualified board members.
  • Anti-takeover provisions in our charter documents and under Delaware law could make an acquisition of our company more difficult, limit attempts by our stockholders to replace or remove our current management and limit the market price of our common stock.

  • Total revenues increased $555.9 million, or 30.8%, primarily due to the following:
  • Total cost of revenues increased $85.1 million or 24.7%. License cost of revenues increased $1.6 million, or 7.1%, due to an increase in amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets. Maintenance and services cost of revenues increased $83.5 million, or 25.9%, primarily due to the following:
