After closing out the second quarter with flat revenues of $393 million and earnings of $43 million, or 23 cents a share – 39 cents non-GAAP and so a penny better than expected – Citrix Systems took the auspices and figures revenues are gonna be flat again in both Q3 and the full year with little improvement in its margins.

As a result, Wall Street took its stock down around 2%.

CEO Mark Templeton said the economic is still tough, especially in EMEA, but claimed “our customers are embracing IT as an on-demand service, confirming our strategy around desktop virtualization, the next-generation data center and SaaS.”

Indicative of his point, Q2 revenue, up 3% in the Americas, dropped 12% in EMEA and 4% in the Pacific.

Broadly speaking the company’s Q2 product license revenue dropped 15%; revenue from license updates was up 9%; online services revenue was up 18%; and technical services revenue, a mix of consulting, education and technical support, grew 3%.

Deferred revenue totaled $538 million, compared to $476 million year-over-year. v The company’s GAAP operating margin was 10%, its non-GAAP operating margin was 22%; and cash flow from operations was $86 million.
