Sedona Corporation, a provider of Web-based, vertical customer relationship management (CRM) technology for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced its operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, with revenues doubling over the same period last year.

Revenues reported for the second quarter were $407,000, versus $197,000 in the same quarter a year ago, an increase of more than 100 percent.
The company attributed the quarter’s increase in revenues to the $300,000 of income from related party service revenues for ACEncrypt Solutions and royalty and services fees from indirect distribution channel partners.
Gross Profits Up 29 Percent

For the second quarter of 2004, operating expenses increased to $843,000, compared to $744,000 in the same three month period of 2003. The cost increase, the company said, was due to the completion of the new multivertical version of the company’s CRM application software, Intarsia.
