Net income for the third quarter of 2011 decreased 16 percent to $887,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, reported for the third quarter of 2010.

“I am happy to report another strong quarter with consistent revenue growth and improvement of our operating and net margins that led to higher profitability,” Ron Ela, Commtouch CFO stated in the press release. “This steady financial growth remains a solid basis from which to implement our future plans.”
