PADUCAH, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) today reported growth in revenues and net income for the first quarter ended May 31, 2017.
CSI’s revenues rose 15.2% to $64.7 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with $56.1 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. First quarter net income rose 47.0% to $9.9 million compared with $6.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Net income per share rose 47.9% to $0.71 compared with $0.48 for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The results for the first quarter of 2018 benefited from approximately $5.3 million in early contract termination fees compared with $85,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding the effect of early contract termination fees, net revenues increased approximately 6% and net income rose approximately 5% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The early contract termination fees are generated when a customer terminates its contract prior to the end of the contracted term, a circumstance that typically arises when an existing CSI customer is acquired by another financial institution that is not a CSI customer. These fees can vary significantly from period to period based on the number and size of customers that are acquired and how early in the contract term a customer is acquired.
“CSI reported solid growth in revenues across our business lines in the first quarter due to new business and cross-sales to existing customers,” stated Steven A. Powless, CEO of CSI. “We continue to benefit from a high recurring revenue base with long-term contracts and high renewal rates on customer contracts.
Our core business remains solid and we expect our revenues and net income to be up for fiscal 2018 compared with fiscal 2017 based on the stability of existing contracts, new business projections and increased demand from existing customers.”
First Quarter Results
Consolidated revenues increased 15.2% to $64.7 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with $56.1 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. The growth in revenues benefited from higher sales of core processing, digital banking, regulatory compliance services and managed services. Revenues included approximately $5.3 million in early contract termination fees in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with $85,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Excluding the effect of the early contract termination fees, first quarter fiscal 2018 processing revenues increased approximately 6% compared with the first quarter of last fiscal year.
“We expect total revenues for fiscal 2018 to be higher than the prior fiscal year, notwithstanding the early contract termination fees. Revenue and earnings growth may be lower in the second half of this fiscal year due to higher early contract termination fees in the third and fourth quarters of last fiscal year compared with possible lower early contract termination fees in the second half of this year,” continued Powless.
Operating income rose 48.3% to $16.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with $10.9 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Operating margin was 25.1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with 19.5% for the first quarter of fiscal 2016. The increase in operating income and margin were due to growth in sales and the effect of higher early contract termination fees received in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 was up 47.0% to $9.9 million compared with $6.8 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Net income per share increased 47.9% to $0.71 for the first quarter of fiscal 2018 on 14.0 million weighted average shares outstanding compared with $0.48 for the first quarter of fiscal 2017 on 14.0 million weighted average shares outstanding. The early contract termination fees benefited per share earnings by approximately $0.22 in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with a negligible per share benefit in the first quarter of fiscal 2017.
CSI’s cash flow from operations rose 19.2% to $21.8 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2018 compared with $18.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2017. Cash and cash equivalents increased 74.7% to $48.4 million as of May 31, 2017, from $27.7 million as of May 31, 2016.
“CSI’s financial position remained strong with growth in cash flow from operations, higher cash and cash equivalents and no long-term debt,” Powless continued. “During the first quarter we returned approximately $4.1 million to shareholders in cash dividends and repurchases of common stock and invested another $3.6 million in hardware and software. We continue to be in a very good position to reinvest in our business in areas of new product development, market expansion and overall growth in our customer base.”
