The company reported that net income increased to $76.6 million from pro-forma net income of $49.1 million for the second quarter of 2000.


Revenue from license fees for the quarter was $286.8 million, compared with $245.3 million for the same period last year. Maintenance, consulting and other services generated revenue of $269.9 million, up from $152.2 million last year.
