Technology and service acquisitions and significant growth in networking products highlight quarter
Tokyo, Japan – August 03, 2005 – Trend Micro, Inc. (TSE: 4704, NASDAQ: TMIC), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced earnings results for the second quarter 2005.
Trend Micro posted consolidated net sales of 17.19 billion Yen (or US $159.57 million, 107.72 JPY = 1USD), operating income of 5.47 billion Yen (or US $50.78 million) and net income of 3.93 billion Yen (or US $36.52 million) for the second quarter 2005. These figures reflect gains of nearly 16% in net sales compared with the same period in the previous year. Operating income was down 13% from the same quarter in the previous year, largely due to additional support costs incurred in Japan in April.

Both the United States and the Asia-Pacific regions experienced a 29 percent year-over-year increase in revenue, and sales in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) increased 19 percent over the same period. Much of the company's growth was buoyed by strong sales in networking security products.
