Net Income for third quarter 2005 was ?3.8 million, an increase of ?1.1 million or 39.9 percent, versus ?2.7 million reported for the third quarter of 2004. Earnings per diluted share for the third quarter were ?0.13 (based on a weighted average of 29,247,100 shares outstanding), compared to ?0.14 per diluted share (20,000,000 shares outstanding), in the third quarter of 2004.

Pro forma earnings per diluted share for the third quarter 2005 were ?0.18, versus ?0.19 for the third quarter of 2004.

 

Revenues for the first nine months of 2005 were ?271.4 million, an increase of ?72.2 million or 36.2 percent, versus ?199.2 million reported for the first nine months of 2004.

 

Net income for the first nine months of 2005 was ?8.9 million, an increase of ?2.6 million or 40.8 percent, versus ?6.4 million reported for the first nine months of 2004. Earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2005 were ?0.31, compared to ?0.32 per diluted share in the same period of 2004. Pro forma net income for the first nine months of 2005 was ?11.9 million, an increase of 21.0 percent, versus ?9.8 million for the first nine months of 2004. Pro forma earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2005 were ?0.41, versus ?0.49 for the same period of 2004.

 

Pro forma net income excludes the amortization of intangible assets from the acquisitions´ purchase price allocations, stock compensation plan expenses and mark to market hedging, that Telvent believes are not indicative of its core performance or results. A reconciliation between GAAP and pro forma net income is provided in this release in a table immediately following the condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

"I am very pleased with our overall growth this quarter. Organic growth was strong, specifically in the core businesses and regions that are central to our strategy. As an example, we achieved record growth in China, driven by the solid execution and strong performance of our projects," said Manuel S?nchez Ortega, Telvent Chairman and Chief Executive Officer.

 

"We maintain a stable revenue base, with more than 92 percent of our business coming from repeat customers. The positive momentum from our existing base is also complemented by growing contributions from recent acquisitions as they are successfully integrated."

 

"I am pleased with how this year is progressing and look forward to further progress in 2006," concluded Manuel S?nchez Ortega.

 

Gross margin was 21.1 percent in the third quarter of 2005 compared to 22.4 percent in the third quarter of 2004. Gross margin for the first nine months of 2005 was 21.7 percent, compared to 22.4 percent in the same period last year.

 

Operating expenses for the third quarter, as a percentage of revenues, decreased 0.6 percentage points. However, operating expenses grew in absolute figures, mainly due to higher general and administrative costs from additional legal and accounting expenses that were incurred during this period as a result of being a publicly-traded company in the United States, and higher sales and marketing costs, primarily due to the result of the contribution of Telvent´s newly acquired businesses and the increased business activity across sectors and geographies, especially in connection with our efforts to develop the Company"s Traffic sector business in North America. Operating expenses, as a percentage of revenues, for the first nine months of 2005 were 16.4 percent, compared to 17.0 percent in the same period last year.

 

Income from operations, as a percentage of revenues, was 6.4 percent in the third quarter of 2005 compared to 7.0 percent in the third quarter of 2004. For the first nine months of 2005, income from operations, as a percentage of revenues, was 5.3 percent compared to 5.4 percent in the same period last year.

 

For the first nine months of 2005, cash used in operating activities was ?34.3 million. For the same period in 2004, cash used was ?7.0 million.

 

As of September 30, 2005, cash and cash equivalents were ?75.5 million and total debt (including net ?14.1 million credit line due from related parties) was ?54.1 million, resulting in a net cash position of ?21.4 million. As of December 31, 2004, net cash position was ?64.5 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

 

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we use certain non-GAAP measures, including pro forma net income and pro forma EPS. Pro forma net income and pro forma EPS are adjusted from GAAP-based results to exclude certain costs and expenses that we believe are not indicative of our core operating results. Pro forma results are one of the primary indicators management uses for evaluating historical results and for planning and forecasting future periods. We believe pro forma results provide consistency in our financial reporting, which enhances our investor"s understanding of our current financial performance as well as our future prospects. Pro forma results should be viewed in addition to, and not in lieu of, GAAP results.
