John DiBella, vice president for marketing and sales of Simulations Plus, said: “This was a productive quarter for us, as we experienced solid sales growth in both software and consulting services. It is important to note that revenue from software renewals was a bit below our historical average due to unexpected employee turnover at several companies. We believe these were isolated events and expect some of this revenue to be recovered in future quarters. Fortunately, we were able to offset this with strong new software license revenue and an increase in consulting work, demonstrating our increasingly diversified business model. With new product releases expected to be available soon, coupled with an aggressive training workshop and conference schedule over the next few months, we hope to educate more scientists and expect our longstanding positive momentum in revenue growth to continue.”
