IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) announced today the results of operations for its fiscal 2011 second quarter ended September 30, 2010.
The Company reported record net revenues of $81.5 million for the fiscal 2011 second quarter, an increase of 14 percent from $71.7 million in the comparable period last year. The Company reported net income of $13.4 million, a 14 percent increase when compared with $11.8 million in net income for the same period last year. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.46 in the fiscal 2011 second quarter; up 12 percent versus the $0.41 fully diluted earnings per share for the second quarter of fiscal 2010.
“At the very end of the second quarter, in fact on September 30, 2010, the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT®) announced that our EHR solution was certified as a Complete EHR and 2011/2012 compliant. This came on the heels of the Stage 1 Meaningful Use definition criteria revealed in July 2010. With the lifting of the many uncertainties that had been looming for quite some time, we are well positioned to aid physicians and hospitals with their EHR decisions as they prepare to make incentive-based purchases,” explained Steven T. Plochocki, Quality Systems’ chief executive officer.
“Now that we have met both Meaningful Use and CCHIT® standards, we believe our robust product and service offering will bode well for those physicians and hospitals seeking to transition to EHR and help to optimize shareholder value as we enter year one of the five-year stimulus plan,” Plochocki added.
Quality Systems, Inc. also announced that the Company’s Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of Thirty Cents ($0.30) per share on the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, payable to shareholders of record as of December 17, 2010, with an anticipated distribution date of January 5, 2011, pursuant to the Company’s current policy to pay a regular quarterly dividend of Thirty Cents ($0.30) per share on the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, subject to further Board review and approval, and establishment of record and distribution dates by the Board prior to the declaration and payment of each such quarterly dividend.

SAFE HARBOR PROVISIONS FOR FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This news release may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Statements regarding future events, developments, the Company's future performance, as well as management's expectations, beliefs, intentions, plans, estimates or projections relating to the future (including, without limitation, statements concerning revenue and net income), are forward-looking statements within the meaning of these laws and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Management believes that these forward looking statements are reasonable and are based on reasonable assumptions and forecasts, however, undue reliance should not be placed on such statements that speak only as of the date hereof. Moreover, these forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, some of which are outlined below. As a result, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements. Among the important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by such forward-looking statements are: the volume and timing of systems sales and installations; length of sales cycles and the installation process; the possibility that products will not achieve or sustain market acceptance; seasonal patterns of sales and customer buying behavior; the development by competitors of new or superior technologies; the timing, cost and success or failure of new product and service introductions, development and product upgrade releases; undetected errors or bugs in software; product liability; changing economic, political or regulatory influences in the health-care industry; changes in product-pricing policies; availability of third-party products and components; competitive pressures including product offerings, pricing and promotional activities; the Company's ability or inability to attract and retain qualified personnel; possible regulation of the Company's software by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration; uncertainties concerning threatened, pending and new litigation against the Company including related professional services fees; uncertainties concerning the amount and timing of professional fees incurred by the Company generally; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; general economic conditions; and the risk factors detailed from time to time in the Company’s periodic reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of the fiscal quarter, generally with a concentration of such revenues earned in the final ten business days of that month. Due to these and other factors, the Company's revenues and operating results are very difficult to forecast. A major portion of the Company's costs and expenses, such as personnel and facilities, are of a fixed nature and, accordingly, a shortfall or decline in quarterly and/or annual revenues typically results in lower profitability or losses. As a result, comparison of the Company's period-to-period financial performance is not necessarily meaningful and should not be relied upon as an indicator of future performance. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
