We have extended our sales and marketing teams in North America and Europe, and continued R&D investments to maintain our innovation leadership. At all times, we remain dedicated to maintain top line growth for bottom line profits."

Mr. Al-Dor continued, "The strategic decision to strengthen our portfolio with the acquisition of Harcase and integration of the RapidSure Policy Administration product has proven to be a successful move.

U.S. GAAP results include amortization of capitalized software developments, capitalization of software development costs, and stock-based compensation expenses.

Comment Regarding Non-GAAP

Sapiens&; management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures can enhance the understanding of the company&;s ongoing economic performance, and provides useful information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company&;s financial condition and results of operations. Sapiens therefore uses internally the non-GAAP information to evaluate and manage the Company&;s operations.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Sapiens believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Sapiens&; results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Sapiens&; results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Please refer to the Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Results at the end of this release.

This is a powerful combination of capabilities that will enable us to be an agile organization, able to respond quickly and effectively to our agent channels, business partners, and continually changing business dynamics.&;

Chad Hersh, a Principal at analyst firm Novarica, added, &;Philadelphia Insurance had an unusually aggressive deadline for a carrier of their size and a project of this breadth.

Comment Regarding Non-GAAP

Sapiens&; management believes that the presentation of non-GAAP measures can enhance the understanding of the company&;s ongoing economic performance, and provides useful information to investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the company&;s financial condition and results of operations. Sapiens therefore uses internally the non-GAAP information to evaluate and manage the Company&;s operations.

This non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. Sapiens believes that non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Sapiens&; results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP and that these measures should only be used to evaluate Sapiens&; results of operations in conjunction with the corresponding GAAP measures.

Sapiens fires 25

The company revenue totaled $29.6 million in January-September 2005, 17% less than in the corresponding period in 2004.

Shiri Habib 19 Jan 06 11:34

Roni Al-Dor became president and CEO of Sapiens International NV (Nasdaq: SPNS; TASE: SPNS) two months ago. Now he is starting to restructure the company, including 25 lay-offs, mostly in Israel, amounting to 6% of Sapien’s staff.
Al-Dor, who replaced Yitzhak Sharir, took charge of a company in trouble. Sapien’s revenue totaled $29.6 million in January-September 2005, 17% less than in the corresponding period in 2004. Sapiens’s bottom line was no comfort to investors, either; its net loss grew 90% to $5.9 million.

Trading in Sapiens’s share moved to the Nasdaq small cap index in 2005, after the company failed to meet the requirements for the main Nasdaq listing. An injection of capital from Sapiens controlling shareholders Formula Systems (Nasdaq: FORTY; TASE: FORT) (controlled by chairman Dan Goldstein) and First Israel Mezzanine Investors Fund (FIMI), in exchange for an allocation of shares, aimed at boosting the company’s equity above the minimum required for Nasdaq’s main list, failed to avert this demotion. Formula currently owns 58.4% of Sapiens. Sapiens, which is also listed on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, has a current market cap of $17.7 million.

Founded eight years ago, Sapiens began as a software company. It developed and marketed tools for developing general applications. Four years ago, however, the company decided to concentrate on solutions for the insurance sector. The current round of lay-offs is not Sapiens’s first.

Sapiens admits to another disappointing quarter
10.11.2005 | 17:03
Omri Cohen

Itzick Sharir today ends a five-year stint as president and CEO of Sapiens International (Nasdaq:SPNS), which today published third-quarter results that should put a damper on any toasts.

The North Carolina-based Israeli-American firm, which develops software for financing houses, recorded revenues of $9.9 million, up 3% from the $9.6 million posted for the previous quarter. But against the parallel quarter, revenue fell 13%.

Gross profit also slipped against the parallel quarter, by 22%, to $3.8 million or 38% of turnover.

Its operating loss quintupled to $942,000, even though marketing costs were trimmed by 14% to $3.6 million.

Sapiens stock in the last year




Roni Al-Dor will assume today the position of President and CEO, replacing Itzick Sharir who served Sapiens for the last five years. Mr. Al-Dor also joins the company's Board of Directors as a new additional member. Net loss for the third quarter contracted to $1.6 million, versus a net loss of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2005, an improvement of 6%. But in the parallel quarter of 2004 it had lost a lesser $954,000 in net terms.

On his last day Sharir chose to address the improvement against the second quarter, not dwell on the slide against the parallel. "Although still losing, we see for the first time a significant improvement of 50% over the previous quarter in new signed contracts, a small change for the better in our top-line, and a significant continued reduction of 30% over the previous quarter in our operational losses," he said, in his requiem to investors.

"I personally believe that this is the beginning of a change in trend, where hopefully the worse is behind us and the quarters to come will continue to improve," he added.

Sharir welcomed Roni Al-Dor as the new president and CEO with the hope and belief "that he will continue the mission and lead Sapiens back to success and prosperity."

From the start of 2005, Sapiens' sales have slid 17% against the same period of 2004 to $29.6 million, while its net loss soared 74% to $6 million, or 51 cents per share.

In nine months Sapiens burned up $9 million and is left, at the end of September, with $13.25 million. It owes the banks $13.6 million.

This year Sapiens stock fell 39%, dropping to $1.74 per share last night on Nasdaq, which depressed the company's market capitalization to $20.6 million.

ES,

I myself was not too sure about it, and for that
reason i asked your opinion.
BTW, not only refering to SPNS, i always proceed
with caution, especially in those hi-risk companies.
On the other hand, 100% sure companies, if there are
at all to be found, would not 'suit' us.

I will continue checking SPNS though.(as well as others)

Thanks, Regards,

i dont belive Sapiens can return to those "glory days".
the new CEO came from TTI, another loser, and that is not a promise step.

read this article :

of course the old CEO have options, so we need to take his words (60Ml market cap in 2-3 years) with caution.

Sapiens Introduces New Generation of Business-Rules Technology Through Service Oriented Architecture
Wednesday October 26, 6:43 am ET


Future Proofing the eMerge Technology Suite
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina, October 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sapiens International Corporation N.V. (NASDAQ: SPNS and TASE: SPNS), a member of the Formula Group (NASDAQ: FORTY and TASE: FORT), announced today an upgrade to its pioneering eMerge(TM) business-rules technology suite. Release V4.4 of eMerge(TM) adds support for Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), enhancing the cost-efficient delivery and management of modular and reusable enterprise software solutions.

Providing the agility required of enterprises responding to challenges posed by the ever-increasing pace of change in the global economy, eMerge(TM) V4.4 includes:

Web Services - enabling enterprises to extend value by using Web Services for existing and new business services - whether provided by Sapiens or others. Web Services are published and consumed utilizing SOAP for CICS or AXIS running in an Application Server such as IBM's WebSphere(TM), BEA WebLogic(TM), etc. Supported transports include WebSphere MQTM and HTTP.

XML Messaging - providing the ability to both instantiate and receive XML messages to and from 3rd party applications out of the box adds an important new capability to integrate disparate silo-style legacy and new business systems. Full integration with eMerge's business rules engine and development environment translates into higher productivity in handling real-world integration challenges. eMerge(TM) XML messaging supports both synchronous and asynchronous modes of processing.

J2EE and .NET Support - enabling easy integration within J2EE and .NET architectures, including eMerge Resource Adapter which implements a J2EE connector according to the SUN Java Connector Architecture specification and EJB Binding - the ability to access eMerge(TM) objects from an EJB container.

Using these new features, enterprises that have previously leveraged eMerge(TM) to define highly complex business logic and execute heavy duty transaction-intensive enterprise class work loads can now use industry standard technologies to rapidly extend the value of their eMerge(TM) business-rules technology to all corners of the enterprise.

Remarking on the release, Mr. Itzick Sharir, President and CEO of Sapiens International said: "This new generation of eMerge(TM) demonstrates our continued commitment to enhancing and 'future proofing' our technology. We protect and extend the value of our clients' investment in our eMerge(TM) technology through the development of new capabilities and adapters which allow them to leverage new industry standard technologies without the cost of re-developing their eMerge(TM) applications. To our insurance customers, this new generation of eMerge(TM) enables the deployment of new business modules while providing the flexibility and speed to market required in today's changing world."

About Sapiens eMerge(TM)

JA Ishikawa Awards Sapiens License and Maintenance for $500,000
Monday August 15, 3:13 am ET


RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina, August 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sapiens International Corporation N.V. (NASDAQ: SPNS, TASE: SPNS) today announced that JA Ishikawa Computer Center has signed a 60 million Yen (approximately $500,000) license and maintenance agreement with Sapiens Japan.
ADVERTISEMENT



JA Ishikawa has been a Fujitsu mainframe user for 25 years, but has decided to replace its system and migrate to IBM iSeries by the end of 2006, in order to rebuild its system with Sapiens eMerge(TM).

Because of mandatory retirement, many individuals leading Japan's economy will retire in 2007, or soon thereafter. This is expected to cause difficulties in passing accumulated know-how down to younger generations. Similarly, in IT departments, application developers from the mainframe era will retire with the remaining individuals lacking full understanding of the complete system. It is believed that system rebuilding by staff of all generations is crucial to prepare for the near future.

Each of the 47 prefectures in Japan has a JA, a Japan Agricultural Cooperative. Japan Agricultural Cooperatives has been promoting a nationwide revolution in utilization of its system. JA Ishikawa is the fourth JA to introduce Sapiens, after JA Kumamoto, JA Chiba and JA Nagano.

In an interview with the Japanese magazine, Computer Report, Managing Director Yoshikazu Akamaru, and Mikio Ohyama, Consultant, of JA Ishikawa Computer Center described their decision to use Sapiens eMerge(TM). "Using package software or outsourcing would not ensure flexibility to meet drastic changes in the JA business environment. From our observations of other JAs, we learned that outsourcing is very expensive both in development and operation, and that developing new systems with eMerge(TM) is more cost efficient than customizing existing software packages. Introduction of eMerge(TM) will be the best way to reduce TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by efficiently utilizing our expertise and Sapiens' developed business knowledge, to overcome the year 2007 issue."

Manabu Okada, President, Sapiens Japan's, commented, "JA Ishikawa made a decision to introduce eMerge(TM) a few months after our presentation in February. We hope their move will have an impact on other JA prefectural organizations. Sapiens Japan is committed to giving full support to rebuild JA's system that is currently running on a Fujitsu mainframe and will make this project a success."

About JA Ishikawa Computer Center

JA Ishikawa Computer Center develops and operates systems for local groups in the Ishikawa Prefecture. The JA systems cover (1) collection of agricultural and stock farm products and the offer of these to market, and payment for products, (2) provision of fertilizer and manure, pesticide, livestock feed and gasoline and kerosene.

I was wrong, admits Sapiens' CEO
14.8.2005 / 12:59
Shirley Yom Tov

If you've been keeping track of Sapiens International (Nasdaq:SPNS) manager Yitzhak Sharir, you've been hearing a lot of promises over the last two years.

Under his leadership the company aimed itself at creating billing software for the insurance industry, and Sharir, 55, disseminated optimistic forecasts from - almost - every dais. But he had little to say on the subject when discussing the company's financial statements, most of which have been disappointing. Nor did he go there, much, when the company raised $17 million through convertible bonds in September 2003, which was an occasion to dwell on sustainable growth, but he did mention successful penetration of the insurance business.

But it didn't happen and at present Sapiens is very far from the place Sharir had expected it to reach. Last week the company reported $9.6 million revenues for the second quarter of 2005 and a net loss of $1.7 million. From 2000, in fact, Sapiens has lost $72 million. Penetration of the famously conservative insurance business is slow and painful, and income from traditional areas of business has been declining.

When reality falls short of expectations, managers usually find plenty of things to blame. Not Sharir: "I was wrong," he baldly admitted to TheMarker. "I firmly believed in what I said, but today I say I was wrong and I bear that responsibility. I believed Sapiens could benefit within three years of entering the insurance business in 2001."

His message was optimism, says Sharir: "In retrospect I can say my enthusiasm should have been more modest. I bear the responsibility for the fact that the capital market and workers are disappointed, because I created the expectations. Now I have to explain to everybody why it didn't happen."

In 2000, Sapiens crashed

In the early 1990s, Sapiens was selling at a pace of $30-40 million a year, from consulting and selling development platforms. In the mid-1990s Sapiens was euphoric; the feeling was new economy, when a good story could command a billion-dollar company valuation, Sharir describes. Sapiens itself went public in 1992 and started looking for opportunities, instead of focusing on its core business.

"It did well from converting computer systems to overcome the Year 2000 Bug, achieving $70 million revenues a year and profit. That was the start of the problem, though, because the company thought the good times would roll on."

January 2000 came and went and no bug appeared, so the company started to look for other opportunities. Sapiens turned its attention from converting for the 2000 bug to converting currency systems to handle the euro, but it didn't really know how to do it. It also made the mistake of buying non-core businesses, in ill-advised short-term strategy. Sapiens even considered a merger with Ness Technologies (Nasdaq:NSTC) but it didn't come off.

"In November 2000, Sapiens crashed," he relates. "It was a company with 1,000 workers, projects in trouble and long delays. Its money was running out."

Sharir came to Sapiens at that sorry point, in November 2000, together with his partners in the investment firm Magnum. He was appointed CEO of Sapiens and held 6% of its stock, which has lost only 2.5% in value since then.

For the year 2000 Sapiens admitted to a $40 million loss, and goodwill assets worth tens of millions of dollars that it had to write off.

First off it fired hundreds of people within a few months. It managed to save some of its euro-conversion projects, increased revenues and reduced its negative cash flow from operations.

Glacial processes in insurance

"In the fourth quarter of 2001 the company was balanced," he says. Sapiens underwent a strategic analysis with an external company and decided to focus on financial services, including insurance, a giant industry that invests $70 billion a year, of which $7-10 billion are for systems of Sapiens' type.

Its systems make the myriad processes of financial companies more efficient. At the end of 2003, two years after it started breaking into the insurance business, Sharir projected that revenues from insurance would grow by 50% a year.

They did not.

Penetrating the insurance takes ages, Sharir admits today: insurance companies are glacial in their decision-making processes. In the long run he remains confident that Sapiens' income from the industry will grow and when it happens, it could be huge, but patience is the word. "We're starting to see highly significant deals," he added.

Meanwhile, the company's core development platforms continue to provide 65% its revenues. Though the income they generate is declining, Sapiens has no choice but to continue investing in their development, to remain relevant. "These deals are the company's bread and butter," says Sharir, "but insurance is our future."

He says Sapiens needs $11.5 million per quarter to break even, at the net profit level: "The company is undergoing a painful, slow business process, which is what is generating the losses," Sharir explains. "We have $20 million cash and our burn rate is $1.5 million per quarter. Cash flow from operations is negative, at a pace of $3 million to $5 million a year."

The company is making every effort to reach break-even point: he himself flies coach, Sharir says. "I hope we can achieve operating break-even point in a year, but I can't say it for sure."

In short, four years after Sapiens leaped at the insurance sector, it has nothing to report for its pains. It did rope in a few clients, including Israel's Menorah Holdings (TASE: MORA1 ) and OneBeacon of the U.S. Sharir thinks the Bachar reform of the capital market and banks, which may lead the insurance companies to buy some of the banks' provident and mutual funds, will do nothing but good for Sapiens, but meanwhile the morrow remains murky.

At least the company has backing. It is controlled by Formula Systems (TASE: FORT, NASDAQ:FORTY) and First Israel Mezzanine Investors, which cannot however boast of having done well by their investment. Sapiens stock has lost 45% of its value this year, and from the start of 2004, Sapiens stock has lost 60% of its value. Its market cap is a lowly $19 million.

The company reduced its operating loss to$1.3 million from $2.3 million in the first quarter, an improvement of 43.5%.

Sapiens president and CEO Itzick Sharir said, "Though we report a decline in our overall revenues, it relates primarily to our traditional line of business, where long term projects have been successfully implemented and, as a result, we face reduced revenue streams.

"We are also glad to report that we have increased our gross profit and gross profit margin and have significantly reduced both our operating and net losses. Most importantly, we were able to achieve positive operational cash-flow for the quarter.

Yikes!!!,

Sapiens reports more losses and sliding sales for second quarter
11.8.2005 / 12:29
Shirley Yom Tov

There's nothing new under the sun, they say, or at Sapiens International (Nasdaq:SPNS) either, apparently. The systems maker, which has spent the last two years trying to expand into systems for insurance companies, reported yet more erosion of revenue, against the parallel and previous quarters, and red ink.

Second-quarter sales were $9.6 million, down 5% from the first quarter and 19% against the parallel, Sapiens said.

It lost a net $1.7 million, less than the $2.6 million lost in the last quarter but more than the $850,000 lost in the corresponding quarter of 2004.

Sapiens is traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and Nasdaq. Its market cap has sunk to $19 million, though at the second quarter's end, it had $16 million cash. Its balance sheet shows $15 million debt to the banks and $18 million owed to bondholders, plus $3.5 million long-term debt.

Sapiens Awarded Another Extension to an Existing Outsourcing Agreement, for $1.1M
via COMTEX

July 27, 2005

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, North Carolina, July 27, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ --

Sapiens International Corporation N.V. (NASDAQ: SPNS and TASE: SPNS) today announced that one of the UK's leading general merchandise retailers has extended its Application Support Contract with Sapiens UK for its "Merchandise Bought Ledger" system, until 2007. The application was developed by Sapiens and implemented in 2001. In addition, this customer has expanded the scope of its current license agreement to include full development usage of Sapiens eMerge(TM). The current contract extension and additional license are valued at $1.1M. Performance by Sapiens under the contract extension began a few months ago.

The Merchandise Bought Ledger is a mission-critical application and is used by various sections within the Payables Department. The application allows for the processing of documents such as invoices, debit and credit notes and goods received in order to generate payment information and handle returns.

Commenting on this contract, Ms. Susan van Niekerk, Sapiens Maintenance Practice (SMP) Manager, Sapiens UK, said: "Outsourcing Sapiens application support presents a number of major benefits to the customer. By outsourcing the application support to a dedicated Sapiens support team there is no distraction from non-core business, enabling the customer to focus in-house resources on other business-critical IT projects. From our experience, which is based on feedback from our customers, we have found that the biggest benefit of our Sapiens Maintenance Practice is the fact that we almost completely eliminate the risk of any unavailability of mission-critical systems because of our ability to offer domain expertise on a 24x7 support basis."

Mr. Kali Bagary, Managing Director, Sapiens UK, added: "We are delighted to have another satisfied customer wishing to extend our Sapiens Maintenance Practice. Sapiens SMP empowers our customers to focus on their critical paths to success while improving their bottom line."

Formula injects $2m into Sapiens to retain Nasdaq listing

The minimum equity for listing on the main Nasdaq index is $10 million.

Golan Fridenfeld 29 Jun 05 11:31

Formula Systems (Nasdaq: FORTY; TASE: FORT), controlled by chairman Dan Goldstein and the First Israel Mezzanine Investors Fund (FIMI), has decided to inject $2 million into Sapiens International NV (Nasdaq: SPNS; TASE: SPNS). Formula wishes to prevent Sapien’s demotion to the Nasdaq SmallCap Market. Formula will be allocated shares for its investment, increasing its controlling stake in Sapiens to 58%.
Without Formula’s capital injection, Sapiens will be moved from the main Nasdaq list to the SmallCap list. The minimum equity for listing on the main Nasdaq index is $10 million.

”Sapiens has good parents. We decided to prevent demotion of the share to the SmallCap Market. The company has no cash flow shortage,” Goldstein said yesterday. “I believe that the second quarter will be better than the first.”

The capital injection is the second support measure for Sapiens by the Formula controlling shareholders.
