CHICAGO, IL, August 31, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Cameleon Software
, (ISIN: FR0000074247), the global leader in multi-channel, multi-device product configurator, quotes, proposals and eCommerce software, has announced its provisional net income for the first half of 2013, approved by the Board of Directors' meeting held August 29. Note that the audit procedures are being finalized.
Jacques Soumeillan, the CEO of Cameleon Software, explains that "the group's business growth picked up in the first half of 2013 and profitability increased significantly. This profitable growth means that we can contemplate our development plan with complete confidence. This plan, based on technological innovation, the supplying of software solutions in on premises license mode or SaaS mode, and on a strong presence in Europe and the US, is aimed at strengthening the group's leadership of the CPQ (Configure Price Quote) market for large corporate clients. With revenue up by 19% and net income representing 12% of revenue, 2013 has therefore gotten off to a very encouraging start. The development of SaaS, the gradual rollout of on premises licenses to our customers and the large share of maintenance revenue boost the visibility of Cameleon Software's activity in subsequent fiscal years. The outlook therefore remains very sound for the coming quarters given the growth in the order book in recent months. Our financial structure is solid and Cameleon Software has the financial resources needed to keep pace with its growth and reinforce its unique technology differentiators so as to meet the rapidly growing global demand for CPQ software".

+19% revenue growth in H1 2013
The revenue in the first half, at EUR 6.13M, rose by +19% vs. the same period last year. This performance is all the more remarkable given that the first half of 2012 was already buoyant with 17% growth vs. the first half of 2011.
208% growth in SaaS revenue
Cameleon Software had a number of commercial successes in the first half, in line with its excellent performance in 2012. In particular, the company continued to roll out its Cameleon Cloud offer with 208% growth in SaaS revenue over the first half. The company also signed a contract with a global leader in the sale of telecommunications solutions, with the building management division (security and facilities and energy management) of a high-tech European conglomerate and with an air-conditioning equipment market leader, an international company belonging to a US group. A long-standing Group customer also switched to SaaS mode for a total amount of more than EUR 1.5M of SaaS orders over the next five years.
72% rise in the software order book over the last twelve months
The ramp up of the SaaS model led to a sharp rise in the software order book (on premises licenses and SaaS royalties excluding maintenance) to EUR 9.51M at June 30, 2013, vs. EUR 5.54M at June 30, 2012, representing growth of more than 72% over the year.
12% net margin in H1 2013 vs. 7% a year earlier
Operating profit was positive in the amount of EUR 0.67M over the period, vs. EUR 0.34M over the same period in 2012, representing 97% growth over the period. Net income was EUR 0.72M over the period, representing 12% of revenue, vs. EUR 0.38M over the same period in 2012 (7% of revenue).
Cash position at EUR 5.66M at June 30, 2013
