QAD Inc. (NASDAQ: QADA) (NASDAQ: QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, today provided preliminary financial results for the fiscal 2013 second quarter ended July 31, 2012.
Based on preliminary estimates, QAD anticipates that total revenue for the fiscal 2013 second quarter will be approximately $61 million. Previously, QAD said that it expected total revenue of approximately $65 million for the second quarter. The company attributed the revision to lower license and services revenues driven, in part, by the slowdown in the global manufacturing economy, and the effect of foreign exchange on maintenance and services revenues.
Given the current revenue estimates for the fiscal second quarter, QAD now expects to report earnings of approximately $0.08 per diluted Class A share and $0.06 per diluted Class B share. Previously the company said it expected earnings of approximately $0.18 per diluted Class A share and $0.15 per diluted Class B share.
