® Incorporated (NASDAQ: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software, today announced financial results for the three-month period ended December 31, 2008 (the fourth quarter of its 2008 fiscal year).

Fourth quarter 2008 revenues were $95.0 million versus $95.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2007.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $57.6 million versus $53.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2007, an 8% increase.
