Statements in this press release other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, statements concerning expected future financial results, the potential success of anticipated product offerings, and the potential market opportunities for business performance management software. Such statements constitute anticipated outcomes and do not assure results. Actual results may differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements due to a variety of factors, including, but not limited to the company's failure to continue successful integration of the Brio business, failure to successfully drive increases in software license revenue (by both increasing sales of newer products, and limiting falloff of older product revenue), significant product quality problems, failure to successfully drive partner revenue, significant strengthening of the dollar against key European currencies, the impact of competitive products and pricing, a decline in customer demand, and technological shifts. For a more detailed discussion of factors that could affect the company's performance and cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated in the forward-looking statements, interested parties should review the company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Report on Form 10-K filed on August 13, 2003 and the Report on Form 10-Q filed on May 10, 2004.
