Siebel Systems Reports Preliminary Revenue and Earnings for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2003

Friday April 4, 4:05 pm ET


SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 4, 2003--Siebel Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:SEBL - News), a leading provider of eBusiness applications software, today announced preliminary results for the quarter ended March 31, 2003.

The Company expects total revenues for the first quarter of 2003 to be in the range of $330 million to $335 million and license revenues to be approximately $112 million.

Net income after taxes is expected to be in the range of $3 million to $5 million for the first quarter. The Company's estimated cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were approximately $2.22 billion as of March 31, 2003, an increase of approximately $60 million in the quarter.

Like many information technology companies, Siebel Systems operated in an environment of continued global economic deterioration as the quarter progressed. This deterioration resulted in a number of customers unexpectedly postponing purchase decisions beyond the end of the quarter. While the Company believed the sales pipeline remained sufficient to meet its sales projections for Q1, a few transactions were postponed late in the quarter. Had these transactions not been postponed, the Company would have been within its license revenue and earnings guidance for the quarter.

"We continue to be optimistic about the medium- and long-term potential for Siebel Systems," said Thomas M. Siebel, CEO of Siebel Systems. "We are financially rock solid with over $2.2 billion in cash. We continue to demonstrate clear product, customer and CRM market leadership. We are well positioned to differentially benefit as the economy recovers."

Siebel Systems will host a conference call today at 4:30 p.m. EST (1:30 p.m. PST) to discuss its preliminary results. The call can be accessed live over the Internet at www.siebel.com/investor or by dialing (888) 353-7307 in the U.S. or (415) 537-1912 outside the U.S. A replay of the call will be available through April 11, 2003 over the Internet through the same Web site, or by calling (800) 633-8284 in the U.S. or (402) 977-9140 outside the U.S., with reservation number 21139524.

Final first quarter financial results will be reviewed during the Company's regularly scheduled conference call on April 23, 2003 at 5:00 p.m. EDT (2:00 p.m. PDT).
