Agilysys, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Revenue Growth of 30% and Adjusted Earnings of $0.08 Per Diluted Share and GAAP Earnings of $0.02 Per Diluted Share

Agilysys, Inc. (Nasdaq: AGYS), a leading developer and marketer of proprietary enterprise software, services and solutions to the hospitality and retail industries, today reported operating results for its fiscal 2013 third quarter ended December 31, 2012, and raised its revenue and adjusted operating income forecast for the full year.

Summary of Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Financial Results

  • Total net revenue increased $15.6 million, or 30%, to $67.2 million from $51.6 million in the prior-year period. Revenues for the Company’s Hospitality segment increased $6.5 million, or 30%, year over year, while revenues for the Company’s Retail segment rose $9.1 million, or 31%, from the prior-year period.
  • Recurring revenues (which are comprised of support, maintenance and subscription services) for the quarter were $19.4 million, an increase of 6% over the same period in fiscal 2012.
  • Gross margin was 35% in the fiscal 2013 third quarter compared to gross margin of 39% in the prior-year period. The decrease in the margin reflects a change in the mix of the products sold in the period.
  • Adjusted operating income (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other one-time items) increased $3.3 million year over year to $2.1 million from an adjusted operating loss of $1.2 million in the year-ago period (see reconciliation below).
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations grew to $1.7 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with an adjusted net loss of $1.4 million, or ($0.06) per share, last year (see reconciliation below).
  • Net income for the period was $0.5 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the fiscal 2013 third quarter compared to a net loss of $6.5 million, or ($0.29), in the prior-year period, inclusive of a loss of ($0.03) from discontinued operations in the prior-year period.

James Dennedy, President and CEO of Agilysys, commented, “Our operating results for the third quarter and first nine months of fiscal 2013 reflect our expectations from the strategic initiatives implemented in the middle of fiscal 2012. Our personnel have eagerly embraced our strategy and as a result, we are delivering increased quality to our customers and value to our shareholders. Our success to date with the Company’s refocused business strategy is reflected in the growth of our Hospitality business, which continues to outpace growth in the overall industry, and in our ability to optimize the strong cash flow generated by our Retail business.

“Notwithstanding the progress made to date, we are still in the early stages of executing the refocused business strategy. We believe our emphasis on pursuing higher quality, recurring revenue opportunities and serving markets that place a premium on using technology to deliver a higher quality customer experience will produce above-market returns for our shareholders. Our approach to implementing this strategy will provide a more innovative place for our people to develop their careers and add more value to the solutions our customers receive from Agilysys. In future periods, we believe our operating leverage will continue to improve; recurring revenue, as a percentage of our overall business, will increase; product development investments will provide new innovation enabling our customers to grow their business; and our team will further improve upon the industry-leading customer service for which Agilysys is known.”

Summary of Fiscal 2013 First Nine Months Financial Results

  • Total net revenue for the period increased $16.2 million, or 10%, to $173.1 million, compared with $156.9 million in the comparable prior-year period. The Hospitality segment grew 18%, or $11.3 million, and the Retail segment revenue increased 5%, or approximately $5.0 million.
  • Recurring revenues (which are comprised of support, maintenance and subscription services) for the period were $57.3 million, an increase of 7% over the first nine months of fiscal 2012.
  • Gross margin of 38% was relatively flat compared to the prior-year period.
  • Adjusted operating income (excluding stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and other one-time items) for the first nine months of fiscal 2013 increased year over year by $8.7 million to $4.3 million from an adjusted operating loss of $4.4 million in the comparable year-ago period (see reconciliation below).
  • Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) from continuing operations grew to $3.8 million or $0.17 per diluted share, compared with the adjusted net loss of $5.8 million, or ($0.26) per share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2012 (see reconciliation below).
  • GAAP net loss was $1.6 million, or ($0.07) per share, in the first nine months of fiscal 2013 compared with a GAAP net loss of $5.8 million, or ($0.26) per share, in the year-ago period. GAAP net loss for the first nine months of fiscal 2012 includes net income of $10.4 million, or $0.46 per share, related to discontinued operations.

Robb Ellis, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, added, “We are pleased with the solid results we have generated and believe we have attractive opportunities to continue improving the business over the long term. Our results continue to reflect a good balance of current quarter performance and the prudent long-term investments we are making in the business. With nearly $80 million in cash and no debt, Agilysys has a solid balance sheet and the financial flexibility to support our goal of generating consistent profitable revenue growth while investing in our business to address new growth opportunities. Based on the success of the quarter and visibility into the year, we are increasing our fiscal 2013 guidance which reflects strong revenue growth and a return to profitable operations relative to fiscal 2012.”
