Michael Jamieson, MAM's President and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Despite the impact from currency fluctuations, on a constant currency basis, revenue grew by 3%, while simultaneously we continue to invest in product development and sales and marketing to transition to a cloud-based business model. In the U.S., an important growth market for us, we grew by 6% over the first quarter of last year. Recurring revenue increased to 78% of total revenue supported by continued positive, upwards trends in our SaaS and DaaS offerings. Our SaaS revenue grew 42% year-over-year and 9% sequentially. Taking everything into account, we are pleased with the progress made during the quarter and the overall direction in which we are headed."

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Revenues were $8.0 million versus $8.2 million for the same period last year. On a constant currency basis, revenues were up 3% over the same period last year.
  • Recurring revenues were 78% of total revenues compared to 73% of total revenues for the same period last year.
  • Total Software as a Service (SaaS) revenue increased 42% year-over-year and 9% sequentially.
  • Operating income improved to $1.0 million, or 12.8% of revenues, versus $812,000, or 9.9% of revenues, for the same period last year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA* improved to $1.22 million, or 15.9% of revenues, versus $1.19 million, or 14.5% of revenues, for the same period last year.
  • Net income increased 36% as compared to the same period last year.

First Quarter Financial Results:

Revenue was $8.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 versus $8.2 million for the same period last year, a decrease of $212,000 or 3%.

  • On a constant currency basis, revenue was up 3% over the same period last year.
  • Recurring revenue for the quarter was $6.3 million, or 78% of total revenue, an increase of $296,000 or 5%, over $6.0 million, or 73% of total revenue for the first quarter last year. Sequentially, recurring revenue increased $260,000, or 4%, compared to $6.0 million in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2015. The increase was due to the transition to Software as a Service (SaaS) model.
    • Total Software as a Service (SaaS) revenue for the quarter was $1.5 million, an increase of $457,000, or 42%, year-over-year and an increase of $123,000, or 9%, sequentially when compared to the fiscal fourth quarter of 2015. The increase in the SAAS revenue was primarily attributable to a 27% increase in Autowork Online (SaaS) revenue for the quarter to $985,000, and a 79% increase in Autopart Online (SaaS) revenue for the quarter to $552,000.
    • Total Data as a Service (DaaS) revenue for the quarter was $2.5 million, an increase of $34,000, or 1%, year over year and $121,000, or 5%, sequentially when compared to the fiscal fourth quarter of 2015.

Gross profit for the quarter was $4.3 million, or 54% of total revenues, a decrease of $557,000 compared to $4.9 million, or 60% of total revenues, for the same period last year. The decrease in gross profit margins was primarily the result of an increase in lower margin equipment sales in the first quarter of 2016 and higher margin special project revenue in the first quarter of last year.

Operating expenses for the quarter decreased by $769,000 to $3.3 million, a decrease of 19% as compared to the $4.1 million for the same period last year. The decrease was primarily the result of an increase in the capitalization of payroll costs of engineering personnel, adjustments to the management incentive plan, realignment of the U.S. management structure in 2015, and strategic goal incentives in the first quarter of last year. 

Operating income for the quarter of 2016 increased by $212,000, or 26%, to $1.0 million, as compared to $812,000, for the same period last year.

Net income for the quarter increased by $221,000, or 36%, to $830,000, or $0.06 per share for basic and diluted earnings per share, compared to net income of $609,000, or $0.04 per share for basic and diluted earnings per share,  for the same period last year.

Balance Sheet and Other Financial Highlights:

  • The Company finished the quarter with $5.8 million in cash after capital expenditures and capitalized software development costs of $647,000.
  • The Company had no debt outstanding at September 30, 2015.
  • Stockholders' equity increased $157,000 for the quarter, or 1%, to $18.6 million, as the Company repurchased approximately 30,000 of treasury shares.
  • The nonrecurring backlog, including perpetual, professional services and hardware, was $2.1 million, with more than half of this business expected to be fulfilled during the next six months.

As previously disclosed, the Company discontinued its stock buyback program on October 30, 2015. As of September 30, 2015, MAM had 14.3 million shares of common stock outstanding.

"Affecting the leveraged recapitalization of our balance sheet subsequent to quarter end through the recently announced tender offer underscores our commitment to returning value to our shareholders while also affirming our optimism for the future of our business," added Brian H. Callahan, MAM's Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "The current interest rate environment and our stock's recent market valuation combined with our strong business model and the successful execution of our strategic plans enable ongoing investment in our business and the delivery of meaningful returns to our shareholders. Our efforts to maintain revenue growth and a consistent level of profitability place us in a position to repurchase our shares and maintain the financial resources necessary to further grow our business." 

"Going forward, our growth strategies remain unchanged," added Callahan. "We will continue to balance our investments in the business with opportunities to return value to our shareholders. Our expectations for adjusted EBITDA in the range of $5.8 million to $6.0 million for fiscal 2016 also remain unchanged."
