Highlight of Business Operations:

In the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, we generated $77.6 million and $151.6 million in total revenue, respectively, with a revenue mix of: license revenues 20%; services 71%; and hardware and other revenue 9% for both periods.

Our license revenues in the first half of 2009 totaled $9.0 million, down 76% over the first half of 2008 as we closed no license deals with revenue recognized greater than $1.0 million. In contrast, we generated $25.6 million in total license revenue in the second half of 2009 recognizing five license deals greater than $1.0 million. In the first half of 2010, we recognized six license deals greater than $1.0 million and view this as a sign the economy is continuing to stabilize and customers and prospects are beginning to invest more in improving their supply chains. While our results over the past several quarters seem to be a clear signal of improving demand, we and our customers still remain cautious regarding the global economic recovery as noted by IMFs World Economic outlook.

Hardware and other revenue. Our hardware and other revenues totaled $7.4 million representing 9% of total revenue with gross margins of 15.9% and $13.7 million representing 9% of total revenue with gross margins of 17.4% in the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively. In conjunction with the licensing of our software, and as a convenience for our customers, we resell a variety of hardware products developed and manufactured by third parties. These products include computer hardware, radio frequency terminal networks, RFID chip readers, bar code printers and scanners, and other peripherals. We resell all third-party hardware products pursuant to agreements with manufacturers or through distributor-authorized reseller agreements pursuant to which we are entitled to purchase hardware products at discount prices and to receive technical support in connection with product installations and any subsequent product malfunctions. We generally purchase hardware from our vendors only after receiving an order from a customer. As a result, we do not maintain significant hardware inventory.

We continue to invest significantly in research and development (R&D), which historically has averaged about $0.14 of every revenue dollar, to provide market leading solutions that help global manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers and logistics providers successfully manage accelerating and fluctuating demands as well as the increasing complexity and volatility of their local and global supply chains. Our research and development expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 were $10.3 million and $20.8 million, respectively. At June 30, 2010, our R&D organization totaled approximately 625 employees, located in the U.S. and India, representing about 35% of our total employees worldwide.

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, we generated cash flow from operating activities of $23.9 million. Our cash, cash equivalents and investments at June 30, 2010 totaled $120.2 million, with no debt on our balance sheet. We currently have no credit facilities. During the past three years, our primary uses of cash have been funding of R&D investment, operations to drive earnings growth and repurchases of common stock.

At June 30, 2010, we completed the $25.0 million stock repurchase program approved by our Board in April 2010. In July 2010, our Board of Directors approved the repurchase of up to an additional $25.0 million of Manhattan Associates outstanding common stock. In 2010, we anticipate that our priorities for the use of cash will be similar to prior years, with our first priority being continued investment in product development and profitably growing our business to extend our market leadership. We will continue to evaluate acquisition opportunities that are complementary to our product footprint and technology direction. We will also continue to weigh our share repurchase options against cash for acquisitions and investing in the business. We do not anticipate any borrowing requirements in 2010 for general corporate purposes.
