MAI Systems Reports Third Quarter

PRNewswire-FirstCall LAKE FOREST, Calif. Nov. 7 :
MAI Systems Corporation (BULLETIN BOARD: MAIY) announced today that its
three-month and nine-month ended September 30, 2003 revenue, net income
(loss), and income (loss) per share from operations were $4.8 million,
$0.1 million, $0.01 and $14.8 million, $0.3 million and $0.02,
respectively. This compares to $5.7 million, $(0.2) million, $(0.01) and
$16.9 million, $0.5 million, $0.04 for the three-month and nine-month
period ended September 30, 2002, respectively.

MAI Chief Executive Officer W. Brian Kretzmer commented, “Our third
quarter revenue, although less than a year ago, produced positive earnings
as we have been very prudent in managing our expenses. There have been
hopeful signs in the lodging industry suggesting that a continued
improvement in the occupancy rate and average room rate will drive
increased capital spending on technology. We remain cautiously optimistic
that this will create greater demand for our products and services from an
industry that has curtailed spending since the tragedy of September 11th.”
