For the quarter ending 31 October, BEA posted net profits of £28m on sales up 11% at £192m, when compared to the same quarter last year.

Although license fees dropped by 1%, the enterprise infrastructure software firm said service fees jumped 18% in a year. Operating margins also increased from 10.8% a year ago to 16.7% this time.
