Mike Lawrie, Chief Executive, Commented:

"Our performance over the last 12 months shows that we are ahead in executing our strategy, delivering improvements for our customers and achieving good results in demanding conditions. We have taken costs out ahead of schedule, divested non-strategic assets, realigned the business, strengthened the management team, invested in new products and services and established winning partnerships that enable us to open up new high growth markets."

"Misys has delivered ahead of schedule on our targets we outlined for the first phase of the turnaround set out in the March 2007 strategy presentation. As we move into the second phase of the turnaround and in light of the progress we have made, we think it appropriate to update the strategic goals for this new phase of the turnaround."

"While we remain vigilant to the challenges posed by the macro-economic backdrop, our geographic business mix, together with our high levels of recurring revenue, give us confidence in our ability to continue to perform. We will sharpen our focus on competing harder, winning more, and entering into new high growth markets. Achieving these goals will establish a longer term platform for growth."
