Alan Trefler, chairman and CEO, Pegasystems commented, "We made strong progress on a number of fronts in the second quarter.  The majority of our license signings in the quarter came from existing customers, consistent with our target account strategy.   New customers include an international insurer with operations in 50 countries; a financial services company serving three million customers in the western U.S.; and an east coast health insurer serving over three million members.  
Mr. Trefler continued, “Eighteen of our customers’ BPM project implementations were completed and went live.  We released a new version of our Customer Process Manager (CPM) solution framework used in call centers and multi-channel customer experience management.  Analysts continue to laud our product capabilities.  CPM is recognized by analysts as a leading offering in process-centric customer service, and the industry analyst firm Forrester Research once again highlighted Pegasystems as a leader in Human-Centric Business Process Management.”
Craig Dynes, CFO, commented, “Our current financial statements show steady improvement from 2006.  License revenue, services revenue and gross profit all show growth for the first six months of the year when compared to the first half of last year.  Our cash position continues to set new records and we have been profitable for each of the first and second quarters.  However, there is still much work to be done to accomplish our annual objectives.”
