UNIT4 Business Software’s parent company UNIT4, the world’s leading provider of business software for Businesses Living IN Change (BLINC™), today announced its financial results for Q3 2011, reporting an increase in both revenues and EBITDA and significant growth in SaaS/subscription revenues.

Total EBITDA in Q3 rose by two percent to $28.4M USD (€ 20.5 million) (Q3 2010: $27.8M USD (€ 20.1 million)).

In particular, license revenues in Scandinavia, North America and Asia grew strongly (>20 percent). The German business also performed well closing three important license deals in the private sector and one major subscription based deal in the public sector. UNIT4 companies in the Benelux, Poland and the UK performed in line with expectations. FinancialForce.com, the cloud applications company, in which UNIT4 is a majority investor, performed ahead of plan and showed a growth in monthly run rate (September 2011 versus September 2010) of about 500 percent.
