Datastream Systems, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

Datastream Systems, Inc. Announces Second Quarter Results

GREENVILLE, S.C., July 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Datastream Systems, Inc.
(Nasdaq: DSTM) today announced its results for the second quarter of 2000.
The results are consistent with the Company's announcement on July 5, 2000 of
its preliminary results for the quarter.
Total revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2000 decreased 24.6%
to $23.0 million, as compared to $30.5 million in the second quarter of 1999.
The Company generated a pro forma net loss of $5.5 million, or a pro forma
loss of $.27 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2000, versus
$4.5 million pro forma net income, or pro forma net income of $.23 per diluted
share, for the second quarter of 1999. Pro forma net loss excludes the effect
of amortization of goodwill, capitalized software costs, and one-time effects
of acquisition and restructuring-related charges.
"While iProcure showed impressive growth, the maintenance software
business remained in transition as we moved to an e-business model," stated
Larry Blackwell, Datastream's chief executive officer. "Going forward we
believe that iProcure's current success in the marketplace can be a
significant catalyst for long-term growth on both sides of the business."

The total dollar value of e-commerce transactions through Datastream's
iProcure network grew in the second quarter to approximately $2.4 million,
approximately a 2000% increase over the second quarter of 1999 and doubling
results over the first quarter 2000. During the quarter, Datastream gained
six corporate hub accounts which, in combination with its four prior hubs,
represent more than $1 billion of annual MRO (maintenance, repair and
operations) spend, all of which have committed to a transaction fee model.
Total expenses relating to iProcure for the second quarter increased to
approximately $4.8 million, compared to approximately $3.4 million in the
first quarter 2000. The iProcure business generated a net loss of $0.15 per
diluted share in the second quarter 2000 versus a net loss of $0.10 per
diluted share in the first quarter of 2000.

Asset Maintenance
For the second quarter of 2000, software sales decreased 47.4% annually to
$5.6 million, professional services sales decreased 18.2% to $11.6 million,

represented 35% of total revenue in second quarter 2000, a slight decrease
from 36% in the second quarter 1999.

second quarter of 1999. Days Sales Outstanding (DSOs) were 92 days, an
