Ramesh Srinivasan, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “While certain sectors within the domestic hospitality industry have seen good recovery since around March of this year, several other market segments, especially in international regions, remain challenged by the pandemic.”

“Despite the lack of recovery in multiple vertical and geographic market areas, this was our best Q1 April – June quarter with respect to sales success and revenue level, slightly higher than Q1 two years ago. We have seen a good pick up in hospitality customers finalizing technology decisions in a couple of domestic market segments. However, continuing implementation delays negatively affected revenue for the quarter, while driving the combined product, services and recurring revenue backlog to record levels.”

“We continue to make good progress with getting our recently modernized software products implemented at various customer properties. Our transformation from being known as a solid, trusted hospitality software solutions enterprise software company to one which is also driven by modern technology-based cloud applications is now underway in full flow, positioning us well for a promising future. Our upcoming increases in sales, marketing, services and support investments will further speed up that transformation process.”

Fiscal 2022 Outlook

Agilysys continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry with our primary focus being the safety of our employees and customers as we manage through these unprecedented times. We are re-iterating our previously released guidance of full year fiscal 2022 revenue of $160 to $170 million and Adjusted EBITDA of slightly better than 15% of revenue.

Dave Wood, Chief Financial Officer, commented, “We continue to be excited with the solid foundation we have built for long term sustainable growth and profitability. We have positioned the company to be a dependable growing partner for customers and a provider of mission critical, modern technology solutions to the hospitality industry. Now that the industry is starting to see recovery in certain markets, we are beginning to see the sound business fundamentals come through in our financial results. We are executing on our strategic plan and remaining committed to the profitability and success of the company while serving the needs of customers and supporting the recovery of the hospitality industry.”

Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “goal,” “seek,” “believe,” “project,” “estimate,” “expect,” “strategy,” “future,” “likely,” “may,” “should,” “will” and similar references to future periods. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, our revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance for the 2022 fiscal year, and statements we make regarding recovery from and impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, our technical transformation, and future growth and profitability.

Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not rely on any of these forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and the success of any measures we have taken or may take in the future in response thereto; and the risks described in the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company’s reports on Form 10-K and Form 10-Q.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement the unaudited consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP in this press release, certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by the SEC rules are used. These non-GAAP financial measures include EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted basic earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share and free cash flow. Management believes that such information can enhance investors’ understanding of the Company’s ongoing operations.

The Company has included the following non-GAAP financial measures in this press release: adjusted net income, adjusted basic earnings per share, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and free cash flow. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide valuable insight into the Company’s overall profitability from core operations before certain non-cash and non-recurring charges. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before amortization expense (including amortization of developed technology), share-based compensation, convertible preferred stock issuance costs, and one-time charges including severance and other charges, impairments and legal settlements, less the related income tax effect of these adjustments, as applicable, and defines adjusted earnings per share as adjusted net income divided by basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less capital expenditures.

See the accompanying tables linked above for the definitions and reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to the most closely related GAAP measures.
