MCLEAN, Va., July 27 -- MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software, today announced financial results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2006 (the second quarter of its 2006 fiscal year).
Second quarter 2006 revenue was $74.1 million versus $65.4 million for the second quarter of 2005, a 13% increase. This marked the fourteenth consecutive quarter of year-over-year revenue growth. Product support and other services revenue for the second quarter of 2006 was $51.0 million versus $41.2 million for the second quarter of 2005, a 24% increase. Product licenses revenue for the second quarter of 2006 was $23.1 million versus $24.3 million for the second quarter of 2005, a 5% decrease.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2006 were $39.8 million versus $33.4 million for the second quarter of 2005, a 19% increase which resulted primarily from an increase in worldwide employee headcount and includes approximately $417,000 in stock option compensation expense in connection with the implementation of the Financial Accounting Standards Board's Statement of Financial Accounting Standards Number 123(R) as of January 1st, 2006. The increase in second quarter operating expenses reflects continued expansion of our worldwide sales and services organization and administrative and IT support functions. Second quarter 2006 income from operations increased by 3% to $23.7 million, or 32% of revenue, versus $23.0 million, or 35% of revenue, for the second quarter of 2005. Net income for the second quarter of 2006 was $16.6 million, or $1.21 per share on a diluted basis.
During the second quarter of 2006, MicroStrategy repurchased 528,300 shares of its class A common stock for $54.0 million at an average price per share of $102.24, including broker commissions.
