MapInfo Announces Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Financial Results

Company Signs Contract with Large Network Infrastructure Provider to Deliver Wireless LBS Solutions to Global Wireless Operators

TROY, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 1, 2001-- MapInfo Corporation (Nasdaq: MAPS - news) today announced financial results for the three months and fiscal year ended September 30, 2001.

Revenues for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001 were $26.4 million, a 2% decrease over revenues of $27.0 million for the same quarter last year. Net loss for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2001 was $2.1 million, or $0.14 per share, compared to net income of $2.8 million, or $0.19 per share for the fourth quarter of 2000. Fourth quarter 2001 results include a $1.3 million pre-tax provision for the write down of equity investments, amounting to $0.06 per share after-tax. The Company ended the quarter with $29.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, having generated $1.9 million in cash flow from operations in the fourth fiscal quarter.

For fiscal year 2001, revenues were $110.0 million, a 14% increase over the $96.2 million reported for fiscal 2000. Net income was $2.9 million, or $0.19 per share compared to $8.1 million, or $0.54 per share, for fiscal 2000.

"The modest fourth quarter revenue growth we realized in our overseas markets was offset by a decline in the Americas, where IT spending, amid a weakening economic environment and tightening budgets, nearly ground to a halt, especially toward the end of the quarter," said Mark Cattini, president and chief executive officer of MapInfo.

Cattini continued, "Nonetheless, there were a number of positives during the quarter; the most significant being that in September we signed a contract with a large network infrastructure provider to deliver miAware(TM), MapInfo's mobile location platform, integrated within its location-enabling server to global wireless operators. We also made definitive progress with our CRM partners to location-enhance customer relationship management applications."

In response to the continued weakening of the world economy, the Company announced it has completed a program to reduce its annual operating costs by approximately $8 million, or 8%, to achieve breakeven financial performance at approximately $26.5 million of total revenues per quarter. The program included a reduction in the number of employees and in other operating costs. The Company anticipates recording a one-time charge associated with these cost reduction actions of approximately $600,000 in the quarter ending December 31, 2001.

Concluded Cattini, "As we enter fiscal 2002, we are aware that the world has changed, and we are prepared for the challenges of operating in a weak global economic environment while staying focused on with our growth initiatives. We anticipate increased activity from the public sector, and we are expanding into the broader analytical CRM market, where we provide location-based insight to help organizations maximize customer relationships. Finally, we intend to capitalize on the beachhead we have established in the wireless location-based services market."
