NIC Earns 13 Cents Per Share in Fourth Quarter 2012; Operating Income Rises 29 Percent on 27 Percent Growth in Total Revenues

NIC Inc. (NASDAQ: EGOV), the premier provider of eGovernment services, today announced net income of $8.6 million and earnings per share of 13 cents on total revenues of $57.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. Operating income was $12.4 million for the current quarter, up 29 percent from the prior year quarter. In fourth quarter 2011, the company reported net income of $5.5 million and earnings per share of 8 cents on total revenues of $45.1 million.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Performance

Fourth quarter 2012 portal revenues were $54.4 million, a 29 percent increase over fourth quarter 2011. On a same state basis, portal revenues were up 24 percent in the current quarter. Same state transaction-based revenues from non-driver record (non-DMV) services rose 43 percent over fourth quarter 2011 primarily due to strong performance from a full quarter of revenues from the Texas motor vehicle inspection service, the first service launched as part of the DPS Direct suite of services in September 2012, and from increased adoption of several business and citizen-related services in New Jersey. Same state DMV revenues increased 1 percent, while same state time & materials revenues relating to portal software development rose 18 percent.

“eGovernment is about using all of the technology channels available in order to conduct business with government securely and efficiently, whether through a mobile app, online, or an over-the-counter service,” said Harry Herington, NIC Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board. “Once again this quarter, we demonstrated that our focus on developing these services is a main driver of our Company’s growth.”

Current quarter revenues from the Maryland portal, which began generating revenues in May 2012, were $1.3 million, while revenues from the Oregon portal, which began generating revenues in June 2012, were $0.8 million. Current quarter cost of portal revenues included approximately $1.7 million in costs from these portals. Cost of portal revenues in the prior year quarter included approximately $0.5 million of portal related start-up costs for these portals.

Portal gross profits increased to $21.0 million, a 27 percent increase over the prior year quarter. NIC’s portal gross profit percentage was 39 percent in both the current and prior year quarters.

Selling & administrative expenses were $8.3 million in the current quarter, up 13 percent from the fourth quarter of 2011, driven by costs to enhance corporate-wide information technology and security infrastructure as a result of the Company’s growth. As a percentage of total revenues, selling & administrative expenses were 15 percent in the current quarter, down from 16 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Depreciation & amortization expense in the current quarter increased 70 percent from the prior year quarter to $2.1 million, due mainly to capital expenditures for the Texas motor vehicle inspection service and to enhance corporate-wide information technology and security infrastructure. As a percentage of total revenues, depreciation & amortization expense was 4 percent in the current quarter, up from 3 percent in the prior year quarter.

The Company’s effective tax rate in the current quarter decreased to 30 percent from 42 percent in the prior year quarter, due to several factors, including the effective settlement of an IRS examination and the related decrease in the liability for uncertain tax positions, along with changes in state taxes.

Fourth Quarter Operational Highlights

As previously announced, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania signed a five-year contract with NIC subsidiary, Pennsylvania Interactive, LLC, during the fourth quarter. The contract also includes an additional renewal term at the option of the state that could extend the contract through December 2022. Also during the fourth quarter, Oklahoma renewed its contract for one year, extending the contract through December 2013.

On December 18, 2012 NIC was added to the S&P SmallCap 600 Index. The index includes companies with a market capitalization of $300 million to $1.4 billion.

Full-Year 2012 Performance

Fiscal year 2012 total revenues rose 17 percent to $211.1 million, and portal revenues grew 17 percent to $199.4 million, exceeding the high end of the Company’s 2012 revenue guidance. Revenue growth in 2012 was driven by steady same state revenue growth, contributions from newer portals in Maryland, Oregon, Delaware, and Mississippi, as well as the launch of the Texas motor vehicle inspection service in September 2012, and new non-DMV services in New Jersey. On a same state basis, portal revenues were 10 percent higher than in 2011, with same state non-DMV transaction revenues growing 21 percent and same state DMV revenues down 1 percent for the year. Same state time & materials revenues relating to portal software development increased 5 percent for the year, while same state portal management revenues increased 1 percent for the year.

Software & services revenues were $11.8 million, up 11 percent from 2011, driven by a $1.5 million, or 24 percent, increase in revenues from the federal Pre-employment Screening Program. This contributed to a 17 percent increase in software & services gross profits to $7.7 million for the year.

Selling & administrative expenses as a percentage of total revenues were 16 percent in both the current year and prior year.

Depreciation & amortization expense was $6.3 million, up 38 percent from 2011, due mainly to capital expenditures for the Texas motor vehicle inspection service and to enhance corporate-wide information technology and security infrastructure. As a percentage of total revenues, depreciation & amortization expense was 3 percent in both the current year and prior year.

Operating income increased 12 percent to $43.2 million for the year, and NIC’s operating income margin was 20 percent in 2012 compared to 21 percent in 2011.

The Company’s effective tax rate for the year was 39 percent, down from 40 in the prior year, due to several factors, including the effective settlement of an IRS examination and the related decrease in the liability for uncertain tax positions, along with changes in state taxes.

NIC earned 40 cents per share in 2012, up from 35 cents in 2011, exceeding the high end of the Company’s 2012 earnings guidance.

On January 3, 2012 and December 5, 2012, NIC paid a special cash dividend to stockholders of $0.25 per share. NIC used a total of $32.5 million of its cash reserves to pay the special dividends. Of the dividends paid in 2012, 24.59 percent was return of capital and 75.41 percent was an ordinary qualified dividend. Stockholders are encouraged to consult with their tax specialists regarding the circumstances of their particular tax situations.

“This was a successful year of investment and operational execution for NIC,” said Steve Kovzan, NIC’s Chief Financial Officer. “While the Texas DPS Direct and Oregon contracts required significant start-up investment in the first three quarters of the year, we were pleased to see these new contracts, in addition to the Maryland, Delaware and Mississippi portal contracts awarded in 2011, contribute favorably to our bottom line exiting the year. We believe they should continue to serve as catalysts for growth in 2013 and beyond.”

Full-Year 2013 Outlook

For full-year 2013, NIC currently expects total revenues of $232.0 - $238.5 million, with portal revenues ranging from $220.0 - $226.0 million and software & services revenues ranging from $12.0 - $12.5 million. The Company also currently expects operating income to range from $45.2 - $49.2 million and net income of $27.0 - $29.6 million, with earnings per share ranging from 42 - 46 cents.

Portal gross profit margins for the year are currently expected to remain in the upper-30 percent range, while software & services gross profit margins are currently expected to be in the low-60 percent range.

Selling & administrative expenses are currently expected to approximate 16 percent of total revenues. Depreciation & amortization expense as a percentage of total revenues is expected to approximate at least 4 percent in 2013, with capital expenditures currently expected to range from $5.0 - $5.5 million for the year.

“Our financial guidance reflects our expectation of continued solid performance from our portal business with healthy organic revenue growth, a meaningful top and bottom line contribution from a full year of our new self-funded contract with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and continued investment in our corporate-wide information technology infrastructure as a result of our growth,” said Steve Kovzan, NIC’s Chief Financial Officer. “We also enter 2013 with a solid new state pipeline and a focus to grow our Federal presence longer term, both of which we hope will contribute favorably to our future growth.”

2013 projections include a full year of portal revenues and costs from the Pennsylvania contract, but do not include revenues or costs from any unannounced contracts.
