are calling for SeeBeyond to lose 10 cents in the quarter.

The company expects revenue to total $40 million to $42 million, significantly higher than the $15.3 million tallied in the same period of 1999. That range would translate to a 51% increase from the third quarter.

SeeBeyond, which is based in Monrovia, Calif., also raised its outlook for 2001. The company said revenue for the year should be between $200 million and $210 million, up from the previously expected range of $175 million to $180 million. The company forecast revenue for the first quarter of $44 million to $46 million.

Additionally, SeeBeyond projected that it will break even in the second quarter, reaching profitability sooner than the company previously expected. According to two analysts polled by
