Communications service providers continue to face major challenges. Moreover, some of them are experiencing additional negative impact on revenues from reduction in tourism, associated with COVID-19. They are expected to develop new services and offer multi-play discounted bundles and at the same time they attempt to reduce their costs. While there is demand for our products and services, most processes are constantly delayed, and competition is fierce. As previously stated, during our over twenty years of operation, we have experienced challenging market conditions and we executed successfully in shifting our focus towards new opportunities.”Impact of COVID-19 We experience the effect of the pandemic in all areas of our business, mainly due to the delays in the pace of ongoing implementation rollouts in all our lines of business, due to lockdowns and other COVID-19 related measures. Also, due to the general economic uncertainty, the majority of our customers, both enterprises and carriers, are restricting their budgets.Revenue Distribution for Q3 2020 The Americas represented 43%, Europe represented 51% (including the Message Mobile and GTX revenues in Germany that represented 38%) and the rest of the world represented 6% of total revenues.Customer care and billing software totaled $3.05 million, or 52% of total revenues, enterprise messaging and payment solutions were $2.25 million, or 38% of total revenues, and enterprise call accounting software totaled $ 0.6 million, or 10% of our total revenues.Licenses totaled $0.3 million, or 6% of total revenues, while maintenance and additional services were $5.6 million, or 94% of total revenues.Revenue Distribution for Nine Months 2020 The Americas represented 45%, Europe represented 50% (including the Message Mobile and GTX revenues in Germany that represented 37%) and the rest of the world represented 5% of total revenues.Customer care and billing software totaled $9.1 million, or 52% of total revenues, enterprise messaging and payment solutions were $6.5 million, or 37% of total revenues, and enterprise call accounting software totaled $2 million, or 11% of our total revenues.Licenses totaled $1.1 million, or 6% of total revenues, while maintenance and additional services were $16.5 million, or 94% of total revenuesNew Win The new win is with an African alternative carrier that provides data services to corporates across all industries.

Consequently, only our share in the processed transactions is recognized as revenues.As a result of the above, our consolidated revenues for Q2 2019 were $5.7 million instead of $6.0 million (Message Mobile being $1.6 million instead of $1.9 million) and the consolidated cost of revenues were $2.9 million instead of $3.2 million (Message Mobile being $1.3 million instead of $1.6 million).Our consolidated revenues for Q3 2019 were $5.8 million instead of $6.1 million (Message Mobile being $1.7 million instead of $2.0 million) and the consolidated cost of revenues were $2.7 million instead of $3.0 million (Message Mobile being $1.3 million instead of $1.6 million).All the other metrics, including gross profit, operating income and cash, are unchanged from the preliminary amounts announced in 2019.About MIND MIND CTI Ltd. is a leading provider of convergent end-to-end billing and customer care product-based solutions for service providers, unified communications analytics and call accounting solutions for enterprises as well as enterprise messaging solutions.
