ATLANTA (July 02, 2009) –

Due to ongoing challenges in the global economy, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH) today lowered its second quarter adjusted earnings per share expectations to a range of $.08 to $.12 per share and GAAP earnings expectations to a range of a loss of $.09 to a loss of $.05. The second quarter GAAP result includes a previously announced restructuring charge of about $4 million. This compares with the Company’s previous adjusted EPS guidance range of $.15 to $.30 and GAAP EPS range of a loss of $.02 to a profit of $.13. Adjusted earnings per share exclude amortization of intangibles and stock-based compensation as well as restructuring charges.

“Sales activity in the second quarter was better than in the first quarter. However, customers and prospects continue to be reluctant to commit capital in the current environment. As a result, our license revenue for the quarter will likely be around $4 million, which accounts for the reduction in earnings per share to our original guidance range,” said Peter F. Sinisgalli, Manhattan’s president and CEO. “We continue to be quite positive about our market position and are confident that when the market improves we will gain market share.”

Manhattan Associates is scheduled to release its second quarter results on July 21, 2009 at which time it will update its view of its business.
