Terrorists are Coming To Town

Terrorists are coming to town.

 

We better watch out
We all might die
Stay home don't go out
I'm telling you why

Terrorists are coming to town.

 

TSA's making a list,
Airlines aren't checking it twice;
We'll never find out Who's naughty or nice.
Terrorists are coming to town.

 

Wall Street's closed when you're sleeping
Drops 1,000 points when you're awake;
Some rule fool trades 16 billion shares
instead of 16 million.
So be good for Goldman's Sake!

 

Rule Fools are running Wall Street.
Rule Fools are running this town.

 

No more need to worry
Cause Rules are coming to town.
Cause Principles are coming to town.

 

O! We better watch out!

BP is gonna try,
To stop the 5,000 feet underwater oil spout

By giving a containment dome a try.

 

I know their Experts have
The Knowledge to fix it.
One day we'll know

Why the Blowout Preventer blew it.

 

Rule Fools are running Wall Street.
Rule Fools are running this town.

Terrorists are coming to town.

Terrorists are coming to town.

Press Release: ILOG Announces 2007 First Quarter Results

ILOG S.A. (ADR)(ILOG) PARIS and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 26

ILOG(R) today announced results for the first quarter of fiscal 2007, ended September 30, 2006. Revenues for the quarter amounted to $35.8 million and diluted earnings per share were $0.07. This compared with revenues of $30.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.11 for the prior year's first quarter.

"This quarter we returned to double-digit growth, with revenues up 16%, and we achieved solid growth in combined license and maintenance revenues for our business rule management system (BRMS) products at 20%. We also had higher revenues in each of our geographies -- including strong 22% growth in Europe," said ILOG Chairman and CEO, Pierre Haren. "Our profitability has been temporarily impacted by the timing of our research tax credit and higher taxes than last year. At $69 million, our cash position remains strong, and has allowed us recently to make two investments that will help us build for the future."

License revenue growth was led by BRMS, as the adoption of this technology into the IT mainstream continues. The mainstream appeal of BRMS is underscored by the growing diversity of markets in which these solutions are being deployed, which is reflected in ILOG's first quarter deal activity. While financial services and insurance companies continue to dominate BRMS purchases, the Company signed several sizeable deals in other market segments, including a major UK publisher of phone directories, a leading U.S. logistics and transportation company, and a large U.S. healthcare provider network...
