“As a result, we continue to invest in the EBS business unit with particular focus on deepening our field capabilities to meet the growing demand for our products and solutions. Additionally, our OpenEdge product within our Application Development Platforms (ADP) business unit was within our expectations and continues to provide the company a firm financial footing."
