Second quarter revenues rose 12.7% to $41.9 million in fiscal 2011 compared with $37.2 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010.  Net income rose 19.1% to $6.2 million, and net income per diluted share increased 20.6% to $0.41 compared with the prior year's second quarter.

"CSI's record results benefited from organic growth across our major business segments and the contribution of the MSI acquisition completed as of October 1, 2009," stated President and Chief Executive Officer Steven A. Powless.  "This was our 26th consecutive quarter of revenue growth and highlights the resilience of our recurring fee-based revenue model and the largely non-discretionary nature of our products and services in this tough economy.  

"Our sales growth rate has accelerated since last year due to the MSI acquisition.  We remain positive about the continued opportunities to cross-sell MSI's print and mail services, and its online document delivery solution.  The MSI platform also improves our diversification of revenues while providing new customer markets for the potential to cross-sell other CSI services," continued Mr. Powless.  

Second Quarter Results

Second quarter consolidated revenues rose 12.7% to $41.9 million compared with $37.2 million in the second quarter ended August 31, 2009.  Processing revenues increased 8.2% to $29.1 million and accounted for approximately 69.5% of total revenues compared with $26.9 million, or 72.3% of total revenues, in the second quarter of last year.  The growth in processing revenues benefitted from a 3.0% internal growth rate with the remaining growth attributable to the MSI acquisition. The internal revenue growth was primarily driven by 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 24.3% to $12.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared with $10.3 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010.  Other revenue increased in the second quarter primarily due to the MSI acquisition.

Second quarter operating income rose 20% to $10.3 million compared with $8.6 million in the second quarter of the prior year.  Operating margin for the second quarter increased to 24.6% compared with 23.1% in the second quarter of fiscal 2010.  The growth in CSI's operating margin was due to higher sales, improved product mix and lower operating expenses.  Total operating expenses declined as a percentage of revenue to 75.4% in the second quarter of fiscal 2011 compared with 76.9% in the same period of fiscal 2010.

Net income rose 19.1% to $6.2 million compared with $5.2 million in the prior-year period.  Net income per fully diluted share was up 20.6% to $0.41 compared with $0.34 in the same quarter last year.  Weighted average shares outstanding were down 1.3% to 14.9 million since last year primarily due to CSI shares repurchased under the Company's stock repurchase program.  CSI repurchased approximately 92,000 shares during the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

"We are pleased with our revenue growth and the increase we achieved in our earnings by closely managing our costs," reported Mr. Powless.  "We continue to use our strong balance sheet and cash flow to invest in our business and provide a return to our shareholders.  During the first half of fiscal 2011, we invested over $10 million in capital projects, including a mainframe processor replacement at our Valparaiso, Indiana location, and repurchased over $2.5 million in CSI stock.  We also increased our quarterly cash dividend by 15.8% to $0.11 per share effective with the September 2010 dividend payment.  At the end of the quarter, our cash position increased to $4.7 million, up $1.4 million in the first six months of fiscal 2011, while we reduced our debt by $3.1 million," concluded Mr. Powless.

Six Month Results

Consolidated revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2011 rose 10.3% to a record $81.7 million compared with $74.0 million for the same period in fiscal 2010.  CSI's growth in revenues benefited from the MSI acquisition, higher processing revenues and higher other revenues.

Operating income rose 14.2% to $19.2 million for the first six months of fiscal 2011 compared with $16.8 million for the same period last year.  Operating margin rose to 23.5% in the first six months of fiscal 2011 compared with 22.7% in the same period of fiscal 2010 due to higher sales, improved product mix and lower operating expenses.  

Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2011 rose 13.3% to $11.5 million compared with $10.2 million in the first six months of fiscal 2010.  Net income per diluted share increased 14.9% to $0.77 for the latest six month period compared with $0.67 for the same period last year.
