Management Commentary "Despite macro-economic conditions in Europe and timing issues of specific contracts that affected our revenues in the first half of the year, we expect annual revenues to be close to our original guidance estimates. As announced earlier this month, right after the close of the second quarter we signed a major multi-million dollar contract. This contract, together with our healthy pipeline, provide good visibility for the remainder of the year, and keep us confident in our ability to execute our growth strategy," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, ClickSoftware's Chairman and CEO. "As a whole, demand in the workforce management and enterprise mobility market remains strong, as evidenced by the significant number of prospects in our pipeline expressing interest in our mobility offering. In particular, more than half of the opportunities generated in our pipeline during the second quarter contain our mobility solution. We are optimistic about our growth in the second half of 2012 and beyond," Dr. BenBassat concluded. Outlook The Company now believes that revenues for 2012 will be in the range of $98 to $103 million, representing about 13% to 18% growth over 2011. This is slightly below the previously provided guidance for annual revenues in the range of $100 to $105 million in 2012. Cash Dividend ClickSoftware also announced today that on July 23, 2012, its Board of Directors approved the distribution of a $0.08 per share dividend to be paid on August 22, 2012 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 8, 2012. The dividend will be paid net of any required tax. The Company does not have a formal policy governing the amounts and payment of dividends, and the declaration and payment of future dividends, if any, is at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors.
