  • Adjusted operating income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other one-time items) increased $1.6 million year over year to $1.1 million from an adjusted operating loss from continuing operations of $(0.5) million in the year-ago period (see reconciliation below).

James Dennedy, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “The growth in our fiscal 2014 fourth quarter and full year financial results reflect notable business wins as we continue to advance our innovative solutions for the hospitality industry. Our strategy emphasizes strong capital discipline and prioritizes delivering solutions and service that help our customers achieve their goals of enhancing the guest service experience and maximizing customer wallet share across various guest engagement points.  We believe aligning our solutions with our customers’ business needs best positions Agilysys to continue generating above market revenue growth with peer leading gross margins.

“Looking forward, our investments in the business are focused on creating value for our customers while we simultaneously focus on further optimizing our capital and operating efficiency.  Our next generation platform recently began private beta trials with certain members of our Customer Advisory Board and we believe we remain on track to generate initial revenue from this investment late in our fiscal 2015.  With new products that deliver increased value to the markets we serve, an improving outlook for the overall hospitality industry, a streamlined business and our success in deploying capital in areas that generate attractive returns, we have a solid foundation to create new shareholder value.”

  • Total net revenue for the year increased $7.3 million, or 8%, to $101.3 million, compared with $94.0 million last year. 
  • Recurring revenues (which are comprised of support, maintenance and subscription services) for the full year were $53.2 million, an increase of 8% over fiscal 2013.  
  • Gross margin of 63% in fiscal 2014 compares to gross margin of 61% in fiscal 2013.
  • Adjusted operating income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other one-time items) for fiscal 2014 increased year over year by $5.2 million to $4.1 million, from an adjusted operating loss of $(1.1) million in fiscal 2013 (see reconciliation below).
  • Adjusted income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations grew to $4.3 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss of $(1.2) million, or $(0.06) per share, in fiscal 2013 (see reconciliation below).
  • Net income was $15.0 million, or $0.68 per diluted share, in fiscal 2014 inclusive of net income from discontinued operations of $18.4 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $(1.3) million, or $(0.06) per share, in fiscal 2013 inclusive of net income of $4.9 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, from discontinued operations.

Janine Seebeck, Chief Financial Officer, added, “The significant year-over-year improvements in revenue and adjusted operating income generated in the fiscal 2014 fourth quarter were the result of healthy growth in product sales and gains in recurring revenue, combined with our continued prudent management of operating expenses.  The continued growth in recurring revenues, which comprised 53% of total fiscal 2014 revenue, and the 11% year-over-over year increase in gross profit for the full year reflect the strength of our business and provide confidence for continued, sustainable long-term growth.  Further, with approximately $100 million in cash and no debt, we have the financial flexibility to support our growth initiatives, including investments in the development of our next generation platform, that we believe will help expand our total addressable market.

“We expect to continue to achieve above market revenue growth in fiscal 2015 and to generate break-even to modestly positive adjusted operating income for the full year, even as we accelerate our investments in new product development to achieve our strategic initiatives.”
