Summary Fiscal 2013 First-Quarter Unaudited Financial Results From Continuing Operations
Total net revenue declined 2% to $51.6 million, compared with $52.6 million in the same prior-year period. The Hospitality segment was up 15% year over year, while the Retail segment was down 11%, due to significant hardware revenue sales that occurred in fiscal 2012, which did not repeat in the current fiscal year.
Although revenues were slightly down year over year, gross profit grew significantly as the movement to higher quality revenue continued. Gross profit increased by $2.3 million, or 13%, resulting in a gross margin of 39.5%, compared with 34.4% in the same prior-year period.
Adjusted operating income (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of acquisition-related intangibles and other one-time items) increased $3.5 million to $1.0 million, reversing prior-year adjusted operating loss of $2.5 million. (See reconciliation below.)
Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations grew to $0.7 million, or $0.03 per share, compared with adjusted net loss of $2.9 million, or ($0.12) per share, last year. (See reconciliation below.)
GAAP net loss narrowed to $1.6 million, or ($0.07) per share, from the loss of $6.9 million, or ($0.30) per share, for the same period in the prior fiscal year.
Operating results from former Technology Solutions Group (TSG), including gain on sale, as well as its assets and liabilities, reported as components of discontinued operations during fiscal 2012.
“Entering fiscal 2013, we continued to make significant progress transitioning our business model to higher-quality and recurring revenue streams to produce more consistent and sustainable growth,” commented President and CEO James Dennedy. “Revenues from Support, Maintenance and Subscription Services, combined with Professional Services, grew 12%, nearly offsetting the 14% decline in Products revenue during the quarter. We remain keenly focused on high-quality revenue opportunities in the high-end segments of the markets we serve. Over time, our focus on high-quality products, services, markets and revenue will result in a growing, profitable business that will outperform the market.”
Chief Financial Officer Robb Ellis added, “Our business returned to profitability during the quarter—before non-cash charges such as stock-based compensation and amortization of acquired intangibles, and excluding one-time charges such as restructuring. In addition, we are pleased by the significant margin expansion generated during the first quarter, despite it traditionally being a seasonally weak period. This improvement reflects and reinforces our strategy of emphasizing marketing efforts on higher margin implementations, subscription and support services, which are less commoditized and offer a greater value proposition for our customers. As a result, our confidence in the projected results for the year continues to improve and we are reaffirming our previously stated guidance.”
The Company is reaffirming previous guidance for fiscal 2013 as follows:
Full-year consolidated revenue is expected to be between $208 million and $211 million. Adjusted operating income is anticipated 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 net income per share is anticipated to improve from the $0.39 loss reported for fiscal 2012 to positive adjusted net income per diluted share of between $0.16 and $0.21 in the current year.
