Kofax plc (LSE: KFX), a leading provider of Capture Enabled BPM™ (business process management) solutions, today reported its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

First Quarter Financial Highlights:

  • Total revenues for the quarter grew 2.8% to $60.1 million (Prior Year: $58.5 million) but declined 0.8% in OCC
  • Software license revenues for the quarter decreased 8.8% to $22.1 million (Prior Year: $24.3 million) or -10.0% in organic constant currency (OCC)
  • Adjusted income from operations1 (Adjusted EBITDA) for the quarter was approximately equal to the Prior Year at $6.2 million, or a 10.3% margin (Prior Year: 10.7%)
  • Adjusted diluted EPS2 for the quarter was approximately equal to the Prior Year at $0.04
  • Adjusted cash generated from operations for the quarter increased to $11.3 million (Prior Year: -$0.4 million)
  • Quarter end cash was $90.3 million (Prior Year: $92.5 million)

First Quarter Operating Highlights:

  • Announced the availability of a free Kofax Mobile Capture app through the iTunes App Store and Google Play for demonstration and use with business cards, receipts and other documents
  • The Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM) published a report entitled “Distributed and Mobile Capture – Moving the Process Closer to the Customer,” which contained the results of a survey revealing that mobile capture is considered a "Game Changer" for customer focused initiatives
  • Kofax Web Capture™ was named to KMWorld Magazine’s prestigious listing of “Trend Setting Products of 2012”
  • Chief executive officer Reynolds C. Bish was honored at the 2012 British American Business Awards for leadership in the Southern California business community
  • Kofax was added to the FTSE4Good Index Series, a family of share indexes for companies meeting globally recognized corporate responsibility standards

A summary of Kofax’s revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter compared to the prior year period is as follows:

        First Quarter
Unaudited       Y/Y     In
$M Change OCC
Software Licenses 22.1 -8.8% -10.0%
Maintenance Services 29.9 8.2% 8.7%
Professional Services 8.1 22.2% -6.5%
Total Revenues 60.1 2.8% -0.8%

Adjusted EBITDA1

6.2 -0.6%

Margin

10.3% -3.3%
 
Adjusted Diluted EPS2 0.04 0.0%  
 

Commenting on these results, Reynolds C. Bish, Chief Executive Officer, said: “Our first quarter produced seasonally weak software license and professional service revenues and continuing growth in maintenance service revenues due to increasing renewal rates with total revenues being consistent with historical trends. This was accomplished during a quarter in which we changed our head of global sales and services in order to strengthen leadership in those areas and began implementing initiatives to gradually improve sales execution and productivity. We’re therefore pleased to report essentially the same EBITDA as that realized in the prior year period and strong cash generated from operations.”

Bish continued: ”We remain aware of the unpredictable global macroeconomic conditions and recessionary environments in many Western European countries, but these continue to be in line with our previous expectations. As a result, we are reaffirming our guidance for all of fiscal year 2013, which is for mid to high single digit total revenue growth on a constant currency basis and an adjusted EBITDA margin of at least that reported in fiscal year 2012.”

Conference Call

Reynolds C. Bish and Chief Financial Officer Jamie Arnold will review the results and conduct a question and answer session via teleconference on November 6 at 8:00 am UK time. A telephonic replay of the teleconference will be available by 1:00 pm UK time on November 6. These can be accessed as follows:

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, showed how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants received the download information, scripts, and complete end-t...
For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, discussed how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the dat...
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
