- First Quarter Adjusted Operating Income Rises $1.9 Million Year over Year to $1.5 Million -

ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Agilysys, Inc. , a leading developer and provider of innovative information technology, services and solutions for the hospitality industry, today reported operating results for its fiscal 2014 first quarter.

All financial results presented below reflect the classification of the Company's former Retail Solutions Group ("RSG") as a discontinued operation following the sale of this business on July 1, 2013. Agilysys' business is now focused exclusively on providing innovative software enabled solutions to the hospitality industry.

Summary of Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Financial Results

  • Total net revenue increased $2.1 million, or 9%, to $24.5 million, from $22.4 million in the prior-year period.
  • Recurring revenues (comprised of support, maintenance and subscription services) for the quarter were $13.2 million, an increase of 8% over the prior-year period.
  • Gross margin was 66% in the quarter compared to 62% in the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted operating income (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other one-time items) from continuing operations increased $1.9 million year over year to $1.5 million from an adjusted operating loss from continuing operations of $0.4 million in the year-ago period (see reconciliation below).
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations grew to $1.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $0.9 million, or ($0.04) per share, last year (see reconciliation below).
  • Income from continuing operations for the period was $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $2.7 million, or ($0.12) per share, in the prior-year period. Inclusive of discontinued operations, net income for the quarter was $1.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $1.8 million, or ($0.08) per share, in the prior-year period.

James Dennedy, president and CEO of Agilysys, commented, "Our first quarter financial results reflect the success of the business strategies we have implemented, primarily our emphasis on the pursuit of the highest margin markets we can address with the highest value solutions in the industry. This strategy continues to deliver year-over-year growth in total revenue, recurring revenue and gross margin. Further, our revenue growth continues to outpace the overall market rate of growth―another key proof point of our strategy. Equally importantly we have generated these improvements with a lower overall expense structure in the business. Capital efficiency is the key metric we rely on to assess the quality of the business and financial objectives we have accomplished. In this regard, our business and our personnel have performed at an exceptional level."

"Looking ahead, we expect further improvements in our team members' performance and the business," Dennedy added. Our strong balance sheet enables Agilysys to invest in growing our people, expanding the markets we serve, adding more value to the solutions we deliver and accelerating our growth in these areas through select M&A opportunities. We believe our focus on capital efficiency will deliver above market revenue growth and create greater value for our team, customers and investors."

Robb Ellis, chief operating officer and chief financial officer, added, "Agilysys' successful first quarter provides strong support that our business model is primed to deliver positive operating results. During the quarter, we generated above market revenue growth which we believe will be sustainable throughout fiscal 2014. This growth and the margin expansion that we experienced resulted in adjusted operating income of $1.5 million."

"In addition, we have a strong balance sheet with over $100 million of cash including the net proceeds received from the sale of our Retail business unit on July 1st," continued Ellis. "With this solid financial foundation and our operational discipline, we anticipate investing the operating income generated throughout fiscal 2014 and a portion of our cash back into the business. These investments will include addressing growth opportunities; such as the largely untapped international market and upsell opportunities into our existing customer base, as well as pursuing strategic acquisitions that complement our product capabilities and help grow our customer base. These investments will help drive consistent organic growth that will exceed the hospitality industry's rate of growth."

Ellis concluded, "We believe that our focus on achieving high returns on capital deployed will result in the growth of our installed base and improve and expand our product offerings so that we can achieve consistent profitable revenue growth."
