NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Accelrys yesterday reported a 1 percent decline in revenues for its first fiscal quarter as its net income improved over the year-ago period.

Accelrys said that revenues for the three months ended June 30 decreased to $20.1 million from $20.3 million in the prior-year period. The company attributed the decrease to a drop in maintenance revenue of around $400,000, which was partially offset by an increase in software revenue of around $300,000.

Net income increased to $744,000 from $86,000 in the comparable period of 2008.
