James Dennedy, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “Our fiscal 2014 third quarter and year-to-date results demonstrate Agilysys’ continued ability to grow higher-margin recurring revenue as we focus on providing innovative solutions and exceptional customer support to clients across the hospitality industry. Our current products, including several recently introduced mobile products, continue to change the way the hospitality industry engages with guests, enabling our customers to deliver higher quality customer experiences and to operate their businesses more efficiently.
“In addition, we continue to see solid commercial success from our capital investments and we have delivered several important new innovations in this fiscal year. Our ongoing investments in current products and in our next generation products will help accelerate our revenue growth, drive improvements in operating leverage, and provide higher operating and net income, resulting in enhanced shareholder value.”
Summary of Fiscal 2014 Nine Months Financial Results
- Total net revenue for the period increased $2.3 million, or 3%, to $77.1 million, compared with $74.8 million in the comparable prior-year period.

- Recurring revenues (which are comprised of support, maintenance and subscription services) for the period were $39.9 million, an increase of 8% over the first nine months of fiscal 2013.
- Gross margin of 64% compares to gross margin of 59% in the prior-year period.

Janine Seebeck, Chief Financial Officer, added, “Our performance so far in fiscal 2014 reflects our success in addressing the needs of the hospitality industry with higher-margin solutions as well as our prudent fiscal discipline. Through the first nine months of fiscal 2014 we have improved gross margin by 470 basis points and generated positive adjusted operating income in all three quarters, leading to a $4.1 million improvement in adjusted operating income from continuing operations. We have achieved these improvements even as we continue to invest above historical levels as a percentage of revenue in our current and future products. Our healthy balance sheet with nearly $100 million in cash and no debt, provides us with the financial flexibility to continue investing in long-term growth through the development of our next generation platform as well as through potential acquisitions that would help grow our addressable markets.”
