Management expects to meet or exceed its original guidance of $130 million of free cash flow in 2011. Management also added if the pending transaction by GGC Software Holdings, Inc., an affiliate of Golden Gate Capital and Infor, closes before the company completes the audit, certain deal-related fees may be recorded for the period ending May 31, 2011.

Shares of Lawson were down 0.09% in after-hours trading to close at $11.17.
