Trend Micro Reports Second Quarter 2009 Results

Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 24,244 million Yen

Trend Micro Incorporated, a provider of Internet content security, announced earnings results for the second quarter 2009.

For the second quarter, Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 24,244 million Yen (or US $249 million, 97.22 JPY = 1USD). The company posted operating income of 7,229 million Yen (or US $74 million) and net income of 4,028 million Yen (or US $41 million) for the quarter. These figures reflect a 2 percent increase in net income compared to the same period a year ago.

The Japan region experienced flat consumer sales compared to the same period last year, and reduced enterprise sales. In North America, consumer sales increased even though appreciation of the yen against the dollar affected this region. EMEA sales revenues decreased slightly along with its local currency, in addition to the strength of the yen, total sales substantially decreased when compared to the same period last year. Though Australia demonstrated substantial growth in its local currency, the other APAC countries negatively affected the region's sales growth. In addition, due to appreciation of the yen against the dollar, the region's sales growth decreased. The Latin America region had a healthy local currency but the region's sales growth decreased by double digits compared to the same period last year due to appreciation of the yen against the dollar, which affected this region.

"Trend Micro turns innovation into real products that meet customer needs; I am proud of what we launched this quarter to deliver immediate protection, less complexity as well as strategic flexibility for our business customers," said Eva Chen, CEO. "We are excited about the recent strides we've made in cloud computing, virtualization, and data protection as well as advances in protecting more consumer platforms and devices."

Based on information currently available to the company, consolidated net sales for the third quarter ending September 30, 2009 is expected to be 25,000 million Yen (or US $263 million, based on an exchange rate of 95 JPY = 1USD). Operating income and net income are expected to be 7,400 million Yen (or US $77 million) and 4,600 million Yen (or US $48 million), respectively.

Growth rate figures are calculated from Japanese Yen results. Some discrepancy may therefore be noted in US Dollar comparisons owing to fluctuations in currency conversion rates.
