CSI Reports Record Results for Second Quarter Fiscal 2012 Marks 29th Consecutive Quarter of Revenue Growth
PADUCAH, Ky., Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) today reported record revenues and record net income for the second quarter and six months ended August 31, 2011.
Second quarter revenues rose 3.8% to $43.5 million in fiscal 2012 compared with $41.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. Net income rose 3.4% to $6.4 million, and net income per diluted share increased 4.9% to $0.43 compared with the prior year's second quarter.
"This quarter marked CSI's 29th consecutive quarter of revenue growth," stated Chief Executive Officer Steven A. Powless. "We believe our results highlight our recurring revenue model and the largely non-discretionary nature of our products and services.
"After the close of the quarter, we acquired HEIT Consulting, Inc. ("HEIT") of Ft. Collins, Colorado in a stock purchase transaction. We expect HEIT to add to our revenue growth in the second half of this fiscal year and be accretive to our earnings in fiscal 2013," continued Mr. Powless. "HEIT is a provider of cloud-based managed compliance, security and IT services with approximately 400 customers. We believe the acquisition will become an integral part of our strategy to expand services to our core bank customers and expand the compliance and security services we offer through ATTUS Technologies."
Second Quarter Results
Second quarter consolidated revenues rose 3.8% to $43.5 million compared with $41.9 million in the second quarter ended August 31, 2010. Processing revenues increased 4.3% to $30.4 million and accounted for 69.9% of total revenues compared with $29.1 million, or 69.5% of total revenues, in the second quarter of last year. The growth in processing revenues benefitted from sales to new customers, cross-sales to existing customers and increases in transaction volumes from existing customers, partially offset by the effect of customers lost primarily due to mergers and government actions, and customers migrating to in-bank check imaging systems. Other revenues rose 2.5% to $13.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with $12.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.
Second quarter operating income rose 2.5% to $10.6 million compared with $10.3 million in the second quarter of the prior year. Operating margin for the second quarter was 24.3% compared with 24.6% in the second quarter of fiscal 2011. The slight decline in CSI's operating margin in the latest quarter was primarily due to increased personnel costs associated with planned staffing additions as part of CSI's Strategic Growth Initiative.
Net income rose 3.4% to $6.4 million in the second quarter compared with $6.2 million in the prior-year period. Net income per fully diluted share was up 4.9% to $0.43 compared with $0.41 in the same quarter last year. Weighted average shares outstanding were down 1.0% to 14.8 million since last year primarily due to CSI shares repurchased under the Company's stock repurchase program. CSI has repurchased approximately 195,000 shares during the past year, including 11,591 in the second quarter of fiscal 2012. CSI had approximately $2.9 million available under existing stock purchase authorizations outstanding as of August 31, 2011.
CSI's cash and cash equivalents rose to $16.4 million as of August 31, 2011, up from $10.1 million at May 31, 2011. The growth in cash was largely attributable to cash flow from operations that totaled $12.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.
"We continued to strengthen CSI's balance sheet with our increased cash position and reduction of debt," continued Mr. Powless. "Our cash position grew by $12.9 million in the first half of fiscal 2012 and we paid off all but $202,000 of debt. After the close of the quarter, we used a portion of our cash position and untapped lines of credit to fund the HEIT acquisition.
"We plan to continue using our strong cash flow from operations to fund future growth, including investments in new software and hardware platforms, and potential acquisitions. Our Board of Directors is also committed to funding our stock repurchase program as market conditions permit while distributing a portion of our earnings to shareholders in the form of cash dividends. Last quarter, the Board approved a 13.6% increase in our cash dividend to $0.125 per share, representing the 23rd consecutive annual increase in CSI's cash dividend. We remain committed to building long-term shareholder value by investing in our company and distributing a portion of our earnings to shareholders through our stock buyback and dividend programs."
Six Month Results
Consolidated revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2012 rose 2.8% to a record $83.9 million compared with $81.7 million for the same period in fiscal 2011. CSI's growth in revenues benefited from growth in processing and other revenues.
Operating income rose 3.6% to $19.9 million for the first six months of fiscal 2012 compared with $19.2 million for the same period last year. Operating margin rose to 23.6% in the first six months of fiscal 2012 compared with 23.5% in the same period of fiscal 2011 due to higher sales and improved product mix.
Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2012 rose 4.5% to $12.0 million compared with $11.5 million in the first six months of fiscal 2011. Net income per diluted share increased 6.5% to $0.82 for the latest six month period compared with $0.77 for the same period last year.
