Manugistics Closes Out A Tough Year

The No. 2 supply-chain vendor reports lower annual revenue and increased quarterly and full-year losses.

Like so many high-tech vendors that are getting hammered by the downtrodden economy, Manugistics Group Inc. had a tough year.

The second-largest supply-chain management software vendor on Thursday reported a net loss of $212.2 million on revenue of $272.4 million for the fiscal year ended Feb. 28. That compares with a net loss of $115.2 million on revenue of $319.9 million for the previous fiscal year.

Manugistics' fourth-quarter net loss was $111.4 million, more than four times the $25.1 million net loss in the year-ago quarter and $26.0 million in the previous quarter. Its fourth-quarter loss includes a one-time charge of $96.3 million.

Despite the losses, Manugistics chairman and CEO Greg Owens says the company continues to boost its market presence. The company pointed to 11 new customers, including AT&T, Federated Systems Group, and Hershey Foods.

Still, Manugistics says it will continue to consolidate its U.S. operations, which will likely include a further reduction in the number of employees. The company had cut its workforce by 7.4% since November to 1,133 by the end of the fourth quarter.
