ATLANTA/FRANKFURT--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 22, 2000--






Net earnings (excluding charges) increase by 59%






LHS Group Inc. (NASDAQ:LHSG)(Neuer Markt: LHI) today announced results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 1999. Net earnings grew by 59% for the year, increasing 1999 earnings per share to $.72 (excluding merger charges). Revenue grew by 35.3%, for total revenues of $262.6 million for the year.






In the fourth quarter 1999, earnings before interest and taxes increased to $17.0 million, compared to $12.7 million in the same period of the prior year. The EBIT margin further increased to 24.4% from 21.7%. Net earnings rose to $12.3 million from $9.0 million the previous year.






This represents diluted earnings for the fourth quarter of $.21 per share compared to $.15 per share the year before. The company also made strong progress in its initiative to reduce the DSO (Daily Sales Outstanding), decreasing the number to 98 days at the end of the fourth quarter from 109 days at the end of the previous quarter.






Consolidated revenue for the quarter ending December 31, 1999 increased to $69.7 million from $58.6 million for the same period last year. As expected, services revenue growth in the quarter was slower due to Y2K related spending decreases. As a result, the license to services mix in the fourth quarter 1999 was 44% to 56%, compared to 39% to 61% for the same period last year.






The geographic distribution of quarterly revenue was Europe, Middle East, Africa 51%, North America 20%, Latin America 21%, and Asia 8%.

Die Analysten von Independent Research stufen die Aktie des Telekommunikationssoftware-Spezialisten LHS Group (WKN 906877) auf „Übergewichten“ ein.

Vor Bekanntgabe der endgültigen Geschäftszahlen am 22.02.2000 rechnen die Experten mit einem Umsatz von 262,5 Mio. US-$ und einem Ebit von 54,2 Mio. US-$. Der Gewinn je Aktie solle nach Angaben der Branchenanalysten 0,47 Euro betragen.

Fazit: Umsatz leicht über Erwartungen, Gewinn  statt vorrausgesagten 0,47 0,72!!!!!!!!!!!

Ich bleibe dabei und schaue zu was die Analysten nun zu sagen haben.
