The implementation of these new and revised requirements have not impacted the reported figures. For all other parts, the accounting principles and methods are the same as they were in the 2013 financial statements. This report is unaudited. QPR Software’s business operations consist of software and consulting services sales. The Company reports income for products and services as follows: software license sales, software maintenance services, software rentals, and consulting services. Starting from the beginning of 2014, the Company also reports fixed-price extended software maintenance services as part of software maintenance. Earlier, these services were reported as part of consulting revenues. Comparative figures for 2013 have not been restated. In January-June 2014, the change increased net sales from software maintenance by EUR 63 thousand and, accordingly, decreased net sales from consulting services with the same amount. The Company reports the following operating segments: Direct and OEM business (software license and rental sales, maintenance and consulting services sales to direct customers and OEM customers) and Resellers (software license and rental sales, maintenance and consulting services sales through resellers and the Russian subsidiary). REVIEW BY THE CEO In the first half of 2014, the Company’s software net sales grew approximately 10 percent, despite the continued challenging market situation and the negative impact from exchange rate changes to net sales. Net sales from both software licenses (+26%) and software rentals (+16%) grew significantly from the previous year. This shows that the Company’s software for operational development is in great demand even at economically challenging times. In tightening competitive environment, there is an increasing demand for tools to drive profitability and operational improvement initiatives. The Company’s consulting net sales were at the previous year’s level, and a twofold development trend was visible. Operational development consulting based on enterprise architecture continued to grow rapidly, while net sales from technical consulting declined in a tight market situation. In consulting business, the order backlog strengthened significantly in the second quarter. Due to this development, we expect consulting net sales to grow in the second half of 2014 compared to previous year. Our most important target is to further speed up net sales growth. Thanks to our new software products, we are in excellent position to reach this target. The biggest opportunities for software sales growth lie outside the borders of our home market Finland, and thus we are strengthening our outlays for growth in international sales channel. Our specific focus is to expand the distribution for our process analysis, enterprise architecture and process modeling software. Profitability was strong in the second quarter; operating margin rose to 14% of net sales (Q2 2013: 9.5%). Due to fairly fixed cost structure, net sales growth has a strong impact on the Company´s profitability. Jari Jaakkola CEO NET SALES Net sales in the second quarter were EUR 2,465 thousand (2,335) and increased 6% from the corresponding period of the previous year. In January-June, net sales were EUR 4,689 thousand (4,416) and increased 6% from the corresponding period of the previous year. Both for the second quarter and for January-June, the increase was especially due to growth in net sales from software licenses and software rentals, as compared to the corresponding periods in the previous year. Net sales by product group -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EUR in thousands Apr-Jun Apr-Jun Change Jan-Jun Jan-Jun Change Jan-Dec 2014 2013 , % 2014 2013 , % 2013 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Software 379 341 11 680 539 26 1 034 licenses Software 791 760 4 1 554 1 531 2 3 021 maintenance services Software rentals 477 405 18 920 795 16 1 656 Consulting 818 829 -1 1 535 1 551 -1 2 977 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Total 2 466 2 335 6 4 689 4 416 6 8 688 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Demand for software licenses in the developing markets was on a higher level than in the previous year, both in the second quarter and in January-June. In the developed markets, however, more and more customers favor software rentals instead of purchasing software licenses, which has a negative impact on software license net sales and, on the other hand, a positive impact on software rental net sales. Software maintenance services relate to contract-based customer support and software updates for earlier sold software licenses. Strengthening of the euro against main export currencies had a negative impact on maintenance service net sales in the second quarter and in January-June. Approximately 60% of maintenance service net sales come from international and 40% from Finnish customers. Rental net sales of the Company’s software have grown strongly already for several years. This development continued in the current year. Of all new software sales, the share of rental sales is especially large in the Company’s home market Finland. The vast majority of software rentals is based on continuing agreements signed with the customers. Net sales from software rentals grew 18% in the second quarter and 16% in January-June. Total recurring revenues (net sales from software maintenance services and software rentals) grew 9% in the second quarter and 6% in January-June. The growth in recurring revenues was slowed down by exchange rate changes in maintenance service revenues. The share of recurring revenues in the second quarter was 51% (50) of total net sales. Consulting net sales were at the previous year’s level both in the second quarter and in January-June. Especially the consulting for enterprise architecture based operational development grew strongly, while net sales from technical consulting declined due to continued difficult market situation.

The growth was especially strong in net sales from software and consulting for enterprise architecture based operational development. Net sales from technical consulting decreased. Net sales in the Resellers business increased 5% from the previous year both in the second quarter and in January-June, mainly due to growth in software license net sales. The growth was slowed down by negative exchange rate changes in maintenance service revenues, and by unfavorable business development in Russia. FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE Operating profit In the second quarter, the Group’s operating profit increased 55% and was EUR 344 thousand (222), or 14.0% of net sales (9.5). In January-June, operating profit increased 136% and was EUR 451 thousand (191), or 9.6% of net sales (4.3).

Operating profit in the Resellers business increased from the previous year, mainly due to higher net sales from software licenses, both in the second quarter and in January-June. Operating profit for the Resellers business includes credit losses of EUR 16 thousand (0) in the second quarter and EUR 19 thousand (21) in January-June. Other items in the comprehensive income statement Net financial expenses were EUR 12 thousand (0) in the second quarter and EUR 16 thousand (11) in January-June.

QPR Software puts significant efforts in developing its software and service products, and expects to be able to utilize an additional tax deduction on research and development activities, valid for years 2013-2014 in Finland.

FINANCE AND INVESTMENTS Cash flow from operating activities in the second quarter improved from the previous year and was EUR 311 thousand (-71). In January-June, cash flow from operating activities was EUR 828 thousand (1,198) and declined from the previous year mainly due to an exceptional timing of invoicing in 2013. Investments totaled EUR 201 thousand (206) in the second quarter and EUR 437 thousand (424) in January-June. More than half of the investments were made in the development of software and consulting service products. At the beginning of the second quarter, dividends of EUR 480 thousand (486) were paid.

SHORT-TERM RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES Internal control and risk management in QPR Software aims to ensure that the Company operates efficiently and effectively, distributes reliable information, complies with regulations and operational principles, reaches its strategic goals, reacts to changes in the market and operational environment, and ensures the continuity of its business. QPR Software has identified the following four groups of risks related to its operations: risks related to business operations (country, customer, service delivery, personnel, legal and financial risks as well as risks related to the Company’s resellers), risks related to information and products (QPR products, IPR, data security), risks related to financing (foreign currency, bad debt), and risks related to new businesses (growth of new business, product development investments in new business). The Company has an insurance policy for property, operational and liability risks. The Company monitors country, customer, personnel and finance risks also in the Russian subsidiary OOO QPR Software. Financial risks include reasonable credit risk concerning individual business partners, which is characteristic to any international business. QPR Software seeks to limit this credit risk by continuous monitoring of standard payment terms, receivables and credit limits. In January-June, EUR 19 thousand (21) of credit losses were recorded. The amount of trade receivables over 60 days past due was 14% (7) of total trade receivables at the end of the quarter. Approximately 70% of Group’s trade receivables were in euro at the end of the quarter. At the end of the quarter, the Company had not hedged its non-euro trade receivables. No significant changes have taken place in the Company’s short-term risks and uncertainties during the quarter. Risks and risk management related to the Company’s business are further described in the Annual Report 2013, pages 13-15 (http://www.qpr.com/investors/key-figures-and-reports.htm).

The implementation of these new and revised requirements have not impacted the reported figures. For all other parts, the accounting principles and methods are the same as they were in the 2013 financial statements. When preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions regarding the future and to consider the appropriate application of accounting principles, which means that actual results may differ from those estimated. All amounts presented in this report are consolidated figures, unless otherwise noted. The amounts presented in the report are rounded, so the sum of individual figures may differ from the sum reported. This report is unaudited. During the review period, the Group did not have any financial instruments measured at fair value.
