Agilysys Reports Unaudited Fiscal 2012 Fourth-Quarter Results and Guidance for Fiscal Year 2013

Momentum in the business yields 11% revenue increase in the quarter and

guidance indicating earnings improvement for fiscal 2013

 

ATLANTA—June 7, 2012—Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading developer and marketer of proprietary enterprise software, services and solutions to the hospitality and retail industries, today announced unaudited financial results for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and full year ended March 31, 2012.  

 

To align with the company’s strategic restructuring, revenue and cost of goods sold are now being reported in three categories: Products; Support, Maintenance and Subscription Services; and Professional Services. In addition, operating expenses are now differentiated in the following subcategories: product development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative. Finally, operating results from the company’s former Technology Solutions Group (TSG), including the gain on its sale, as well as its assets and liabilities, are reported as components of discontinued operations.

 

Summary Fiscal 2012 Fourth-Quarter Unaudited Financial Results From Continuing Operations

 

  • Total net revenue grew 11% to $52.0 million, compared with $47.0 million in the same prior-year period. 
  • Restructuring and related charges were $5.3 million. Asset impairments and related charges reflecting the accelerated amortization of developed technology and related customer liabilities totaled $9.7 million. 
  • Loss from continuing operations was $18.0 million, or ($0.83) per share, versus the loss of $7.5 million, or ($0.33) per share for the same period in fiscal 2011. 
  • Net loss narrowed to $17.0 million, or ($0.78) per share, from the loss of $45.0 million, or ($1.98) per share, for the same period in fiscal 2011.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) from continuing operations for the period, which excludes interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, the impact from revisions to prior-period financial statements and non-recurring charges, was a loss of $2.4 million, compared with a loss of $1.8 million a year ago. (See reconciliation below.)
  • Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) from continuing operations for the period, which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-recurring charges, was $3.7 million, or ($0.17) per share, compared with the adjusted net loss of $2.5 million, or ($0.11) per share, last year. (See reconciliation below.) 

Summary Fiscal 2012 Full-Year Unaudited Financial Results From Continuing Operations

 

  • Total net revenue for fiscal 2012 increased 3% to $208.9 million from $202.7 million in fiscal 2011. Reported revenue and gross profit in fiscal 2012 include a negative adjustment of $0.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, related to periods prior to fiscal 2012. 
  • Loss from continuing operations was $34.2 million, or ($1.53) per share, compared with the loss of $23.0 million or ($1.01 per share) for fiscal 2011. 
  • Net loss narrowed to $22.8 million, or ($1.02) per share, from the loss of $55.5 million, or ($2.44) per share, last year. 
  • Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) from continuing operations for the period, which excludes interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, the impact from revisions to prior-period financial statements and non-recurring charges, was a loss of $4.6 million, compared with the loss of $10.2 million last year. (See reconciliation below.) 
  • Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) from continuing operations for the period, which excludes amortization of intangibles, stock compensation and non-recurring charges, was $7.2 million, or ($0.32) per share, versus the previous year’s adjusted net loss of $14.2 million, or ($0.63) per share.  (See reconciliation below.) 

“During fiscal 2012, we successfully repositioned the company by divesting the lower-margin TSG business and focusing on our core competencies in the hospitality and retail industries,” stated President and CEO James Dennedy. “We have essentially completed the restructuring and have better aligned cost structure with continuing operations, implemented procedures to increase accountability and enhanced the corporate services team. At the same time, we returned capital to shareholders with the repurchase of 1.6 million shares during the year. Entering the new fiscal year, Agilysys is a leaner company with a flatter organizational structure and two solid growth platforms on which to build.”

 

Chief Financial Officer Robb Ellis commented, “Cash from continuing operations was very strong for the quarter and full year. Adjusted for non-recurring cash expenses related to restructuring and BEP/SERP payments, cash generated from continuing operations for fiscal 2012 increased to $16.2 million, compared with $4.6 million in cash used for continuing operations in the prior year.

 

“Despite using significant amounts of cash for share repurchases, restructuring charges and divesture expenses, the company’s financial condition and liquidity remain robust. We are debt free and held $97.6 million in cash and equivalents at year end, providing sufficient financial strength to execute our refined strategy.”

 

Outlook

“As a result of the shift away from lower-margin hardware revenue,” Ellis added, “we anticipate less seasonality and overall volatility in future financial results. Moreover, with improved processes and procedures, our visibility into the business has been enhanced, allowing us to provide better and more detailed guidance.”

 

The company indicated that in fiscal 2013 it expects revenue to be between $208 million and $211 million. Adjusted operating income is expected to be in a range of $3.5 million to $4.5 million, reversing the $7.9 million adjusted operating loss in fiscal 2012. Full-year adjusted earnings per share are anticipated to improve from the $0.32 loss reported for fiscal 2012 to positive earnings per diluted share of between $0.16 and $0.21 in the current year.
