Software vendor Borland has recorded its seventh consecutive quarter of profit, increasing revenues by 16 per cent on the same quarter last year.
Much of this growth was due to international markets, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, which recorded all-time highs for its share of the company's revenue.
Speaking at Borland's annual BorCon conference in Melbourne, chief strategy officer Ted Shelton said the software vendor had deliberately set out to become less US-centric, with 60 per cent of its revenues now coming from international markets.
Shelton also said that with new products released in mid-November, more profits can be expected from the vendor. "You have our commitment to run this company in a fiscally responsible manner," he said.
Andrew Munro, Borland's managing director for Australia and New Zealand, attributed much of the boost in the Asia-Pacific region to the availability of new versions of Delphi and Java products in Japanese. He also said much of the vendor's growth was due to renewed partnerships with channel partners such as embedded software partners and resellers.
