This represents the company's fourth consecutive quarter of growth. License revenue increased 82 percent to $4.4 million, with its partner channel driving more than 60 percent of that, which the company says demonstrates the success of its new partner program. Roughly 27 percent of revenue was driven by Onyx's new process management solutions, which were formerly launched in April. "Onyx has delivered another quarter of solid results and we are now positioning Onyx for longer-term growth," CEO Janice Anderson said in a written statement. "With our expanded product portfolio and distribution partnerships, we believe that many more customers who have been or will be stranded by the industry consolidation will be able to leverage Onyx in their customer operations going forward."

"Our results demonstrate solid process in our next-generation businesses...and recent announcements show early momentum from execution of our Asia strategy with our joint venture with LG," Bill Owens, vice president and CEO, said in a written statement. "As I come to the close of my tenure as CEO, I am pleased that Nortel can now move from this phase of stabilization with the foundation we've built over the last 19 months. I am confident that Nortel, with the leadership of [incoming CEO] Mike Zafirovski, is strong and ready to move forward, and will continue to play to win."
