"Revenues for the second quarter and first six months of 2012 demonstrate that demand for our products has remained strong in spite of the difficult global economic environment," stated T. Kendall Hunt, Chairman & CEO. "The results of the second quarter also demonstrate the leverage of our core business model as modest growth in revenue combined with a modest increase in our gross margin rate resulted in more than a 100% increase in operating profits. We also continued to make good progress in the rollout of our DIGIPASS as a Service business line. As noted at the beginning of the year, we believe that 2012 will be a year in which we fortify and enhance our strong position in our core business while we develop the market for our DIGIPASS as a Service business line."

"Intake of new orders during the first six months of 2012 has been the strongest first half in the company's history. In addition, our pipeline of potential new orders remains strong," stated Jan Valcke, VASCO's President and COO. "Revenues in the second quarter of 2012 showed growth from both the banking market and the enterprise and application security market when compared to the second quarter of 2011. We were also pleased with the number of web sites that have integrated our DIGIPASS as a Service technology. We currently have more than 35 web sites that are live on our platform where the users of those sites can elect to use strong authentication when accessing their accounts. As noted previously, we do not expect a significant contribution to revenue from DIGIPASS as a Service in 2012, but believe that it will make a meaningful contribution to revenue in 2013."
