SYSTRAN :Annual results for the year 2012

(Thomson Reuters ONE via COMTEX) -- Annual Results for the year 2012 February 15, 2013 - SYSTRAN, the leading provider of language translation technologies, today announced its consolidated financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Consolidated and Audited Accounts (*) 2012 2011 Annual Change (in KEUR ) (IFRS) (IFRS) 2012 / 2011 Sales 10,180 10,587 - 3.8 % Current Operating Income (Loss) 82 1,069 NA % 0,8% 10.1% Net Income (Loss) - Group's Share 745 698 + 6.7% % 7.3 % 6.6 % (*) On February 12, 2013 the Board of Directors approved the Financial Statements for the year 2012.

SYSTRAN's consolidated sales amounted to 10.18 million Euros in 2012, a decrease of 3.8% as compared with 2011. This decrease is for the most part due to the slowdown of the activity of SYSTRAN Software Inc., which is partially offset by the favorable impact of the Euro-US Dollar foreign exchange rate.

In 2012, salaries and wages increased by 3.3% mainly due to the expansion of the sales team in France. Consolidated other expenses increased by 6.7% and can be attributed to our US subsidiary and the negative impact of Euro-US Dollar foreign exchange rate. During this period a tax credit for research activities accounted for 774 thousand Euros versus 1,011 thousand Euros in 2012.

Considering the above, current operating profit amounted to 82 thousand Euros as compared with 1,069 thousand Euros in 2011.

The operating income amounted to 14 thousand Euros as compared with 841 thousand Euros in 2011. The Company recorded positive financial income from gains and interest earned on investments totaling 567 thousand Euros. Consolidated net income amounted to 745 thousand Euros versus 698 thousand Euros in 2011.

Total shareholders' equity amounted to 14.8 million Euros as compared with 15.2 million Euros as of December 31, 2011. The Company has no significant debts and the Company's net cash position amounted to 22.9 million Euros at December 31, 2012, as compared with 22.3 million Euros on December 31, 2011. Group debt amounts to 0.4 million Euros as compared with 0.2 million Euros as of December 31, 2011.

Year 2012 Activities Consolidated Accounts 2012 In % 2011 In % Annual Change (in KEUR ) of total of total 2012/2011 Software Publishing 5,051 49.6% 6,138 58.0% -17.7% Professional Services 5,129 50.4% 4,449 42.0% +15.3% Consolidated Sales 10,180 100.0% 10,587 100.0% -3.8% SYSTRAN's consolidated sales amounted to 10.2 million Euros in 2012, a decrease of 3.8% as compared with 2011, divided between 5.1 million Euros for Software Publishing and 5.1 million Euros for Professional Services.

During the year, license sales totaled 5.1 million Euros and represent 50% of total sales. This is a decrease of 18% as compared with 2011, attributable to the decline in sales of Desktop and Server Products to corporate customers and the US Government.

Professional Services sales totaled 5.1 million Euros and represent 50% of total sales. This is an increase of 15.3% as compared with 2011, largely due to the increase of the co-funded research and development activity in France. Professional Services sales to corporate customers and the US Government are increasing despite the slowdown in the US.

More than half of all sales are generated in North America. Sales are distributed as follows: By geographical area of asset location Year 2012 Year 2011 (in thousands of Euros) Europe 4,474 4,103 North America 5,706 6,484 Total Sales 10,180 10,587 Outlook In 2013 SYSTRAN plans to expand the sales team to develop revenue in all business segments. SYSTRAN will also launch new cloud services to complement its line of products and services for corporate customers.

As of December 31, 2012 unearned revenue from license sales amounted to 1.5 million Euros as compared with 0.9 million Euros at December 31, 2011.

As of December 31, 2012 total work orders for Professional Services amounted to 1.8 million Euros as compared with 2.0 million Euros at December 31, 2011. SYSTRAN also expects a decrease of Professional Services from the US Government and co-funded projects in France.

Dispute with the European Commission On March 4, 2011, the European Commission brought an appeal before the Court of Justice against the judgment of the General Court which was delivered on December 16, 2010 (case T-19/07). On November 8, 2011, the Court informed the parties that the written procedure was closed and a hearing took place on April 19, 2012.

On November 15, 2012, the Advocate General proposed that the Court of Justice should set aside the judgment of the General Court by which that court ordered the Commission to pay SYSTRAN a lump-sum amount of 12 million Euros as compensation for the material damage sustained by it. The Advocate General proposes that the Court of Justice should, primarily, set aside the judgment of the General Court and itself give judgment in the case, declaring that the action based on non-contractual liability brought by SYSTRAN and its subsidiary is inadmissible. In the alternative, he proposes that the Court of Justice should set aside the judgment of the General Court and refer the case back to it. As of today, the Court has not provided any further information on the judgment date.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
