Restatement of Previously Filed Financial Statements

On May 6, 2015, the Audit Committee of its Board of Directors, after consultation with Deloitte & Touche LLP ("Deloitte"), the company's independent registered public accounting firm, concluded that the company's previously issued financial statements for the years ended June 30, 2014, 2013 and 2012, filed on Form 10-K on August 27, 2014 (the "Previously Filed Form 10-K"), and the associated report of independent registered public accounting firm and the interim period financial statements filed on Form 10-Q on November 5, 2014 (the "Previously Filed Form 10-Q") for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 should no longer be relied upon due to misstatements in recognized revenue and direct related expenses for multiple element contracts, including certain of the company's in-house Software License Maintenance and Service Agreements, primarily due to the lack of Vendor Specific Objective Evidence of fair value (VSOE) of certain elements of these multi-element contracts.  As a result of this determination, the company plans to amend its Previously Filed Form 10-K and Previously Filed Form 10-Q to restate its consolidated financial statements included therein.

The restatement described above will result in a decrease in revenue and net income cumulatively over the period with a decrease in retained earnings and deferred tax liabilities, with an increase in prepaid direct costs and current and long-term deferred revenue as of June 30, 2014, 2013 and 2012, and for the quarter ended September 30, 2014.

As a result of the restatement, the Company's management has also concluded that the Company's internal control over financial reporting and disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2014 due to a material weakness.  Accordingly, Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting and report of independent registered public accounting firm should no longer be relied upon.  Additionally, the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2014.  The Company will amend its Previously Filed Form 10-K to (i) revise management's conclusions regarding the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2014 and (ii) revise the opinion of Deloitte regarding the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2014 and will also amend its Previously Filed Form 10-Q to reflect management's revised conclusion regarding the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures.

The Company intends to amend its Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014, amend its Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2014, and file its Form 10-Q for the quarters ended December 31, 2014 and March 31, 2015, as soon as reasonably practicable.
