Herndon, VA – November 1, 2010 – Deltek (Nasdaq: PROJ),the leading global provider of enterprise applications software and solutions for project-focused businesses, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Q3 license revenue was $15.4 million, compared to $12.7 million in the third quarter of 2009, an increase of 21%. Maintenance and support revenue in the third quarter was $33.9 million, compared with $31.6 million in the prior year. Due to the GAAP purchase accounting treatment of the Maconomy acquisition, maintenance and support revenues included in Q3 are approximately $2.6 million less than Maconomy’s historical results. Consulting services revenue for Q3 was $15.6 million, compared to $19.7 million in Q3 2009. Total revenue for the third quarter of 2010 was $65.2 million, compared to $64.1 million in Q3 2009.

Q3 GAAP operating loss was $1.3 million compared to GAAP operating income of $10.2 million in the prior-year period. Our GAAP results include the impact of $3.6 million of transaction costs associated with the Maconomy and INPUT acquisitions and $1.7 million of incremental intangible amortization expense also associated with the acquisition of Maconomy.

Q3 GAAP operating margin was (2.0%), reflecting the impact of the acquisition and purchase price impacts described above. The Q3 margin percentage was reduced by 12.1 percentage points as a result of the acquisition and purchase price related impacts. This compares to a GAAP operating margin of 15.9% in Q3 2009.

Non-GAAP operating income for the third quarter was $8.2 million, compared to $15.6 million in Q3 2009. A full reconciliation of Non-GAAP operating income to GAAP operating margin is included in the exhibits to this press release.

Non-GAAP operating income margin was 12.5% for Q3 2010, compared to 24.3% in Q3 2009. The Q3 Non-GAAP operating income margin reflects a 4 percentage point negative effect due to the impact of the purchase accounting treatment of assumed maintenance and support contracts related to the Maconomy acquisition as previously described.

Q3 GAAP net loss was $4.1 million, or ($0.06) per diluted share, including the after-tax impact of the $3.6 million of acquisition-related transaction costs, the $1.7 million in incremental amortization expense and reflecting the purchase accounting treatment of the $2.6 million associated with maintenance and support contracts described above. This compares with $6.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2009. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2010 was $4.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to $9.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in Q3 2009. Non-GAAP net income for Q3 2010 does not include the after-tax effect of the $3.6 million of transaction costs previously discussed or the $1.7 million in incremental amortization, but does reflect the $2.6 million purchase accounting treatment.

“Q3 was a transformational quarter for our company,” said Kevin Parker, president and CEO of Deltek. “The successful completion of the Maconomy and INPUT acquisitions accelerated our expansion into new markets, increased our international presence, and significantly broadened our product portfolio. As we expand our licensing portfolio to include subscription and on-demand pricing in addition to perpetual licensing, contract booking value will be an important measure of our success in the marketplace. In Q3, total product-related bookings were $17 million, an increase of 26% from the prior year.

Our competitive position remains strong, and during the quarter we won a number of significant deals in the U.S. and Europe, and we saw our overall pipeline increase in key markets. The integrations of both Maconomy and INPUT are moving forward quickly. We’re very enthusiastic about our ability to drive new revenue opportunities as a result.”

Comparison of GAAP and Non-GAAP measurements:

Non-GAAP operating income and margin exclude the pre-tax impact of acquisition-related costs, stock-based compensation, expenses associated with the Company’s 2005 recapitalization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and restructuring charges. Non-GAAP net income excludes the same items on a net-of-tax basis.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the tables at the end of this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP and Other Financial Measures

This press release and the related conference call described above contain certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP operating income and margin and adjusted EBITDA. The Company defines non-GAAP net income as GAAP net income before the net-of-tax impact of stock-based compensation, expenses associated with the Company’s 2005 recapitalization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs and restructuring charges. Non-GAAP operating income and margin are defined as GAAP operating income before the pre-tax impact of stock-based compensation, expenses associated with the Company’s 2005 recapitalization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related costs and restructuring charges. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as GAAP net income before interest expenses (net of interest income), provision for income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, expenses associated with the Company’s 2005 recapitalization, acquisition-related costs and restructuring charges. Product-related bookings are defined as the aggregate contract value of licenses, products and related services contracted during the period. This consists of the aggregate contract value of product-related contracts signed during the period which are reflected as license revenue ($15.4 million) or deferred revenue (approximately $1.6 million) in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses product-related bookings as a measure of the aggregate economic value of product-related sales activity contracted during the period.

The Company believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP and other financial measures provides useful information to its investors and lenders because these measures allow for more accurate comparisons of results from period-to-period, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s performance and provide greater insight into the prospects for the Company’s ongoing business operations. Moreover, the Company also believes it is appropriate to exclude costs associated with restructuring charges because these charges are excluded from management’s assessment of the Company’s operating performance and are not related to the Company’s ongoing business operations. In addition, the Company excludes the items from EBITDA described above in its calculations to determine compliance with its debt covenants and to assess its ability to borrow additional funds to finance or expand its operations.

The Company believes that by reporting these measures, it provides insight and consistency in its financial reporting and presents a basis for comparison of its business operations between current, past and future periods. In addition, the measures provide a basis for the Company to compare its financial results to those of other comparable publicly traded companies and are used by its management team to plan and forecast its business.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance which are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of our GAAP to non-GAAP net income and adjusted EBITDA, which are set forth below.
