SAP Co-CEO, Bill Mc Dermott, left, and Co-CEO, Jim Hagemann Snabe, attend a balance press conference of the company in Frankfurt, Germany, Wednesday Jan. 25, 2012. Business software maker SAP says net profit more than doubled in the fourth quarter to 1.20 billion euro (US $ 1.56 billion) and adds that it expects increased profit for the year. Revenues rose 11 percent to 4.50 billion euro from the same quarter a year earlier. The company on Wednesday reported a 16 percent increase in software sales, to 1.74 billion euro. That is a key figue for SAP because software sales mean more support service revenue down the road. (AP Photo/dapd/ Thomas Lohnes) less
