**CC: Constant Currency

EXECUTIVE COMMENTARY

“While we had anticipated that several areas of our business would be down in the second quarter, our new product and capacity sales fell short of our expectations,” said Bill McCracken, chief executive officer, CA Technologies.  “Our performance was also affected by the weakening global economy, which elongated sales cycles. Despite this difficult environment, we were able to meet our expectations for margin through disciplined expense management.

"We will continue to implement our customer market segmentation model, introduce new products and solutions throughout the second half, and build out our partner network.  We also will manage carefully our expenses to drive healthy operating margins for the full year,” said McCracken.
