"Although we anticipate a difficult operating environment to continue throughout 2009, we have made considerable progress in the last two quarters implementing changes necessary to deliver on our commitments. Solid trending of recurring revenue and excellent progress on many cost management initiatives give us confidence that our 2009 goals are achievable, without compromising our long term potential for growth," Garrett concluded.
