IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quality Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:QSII) announced today results for its fiscal 2014 second quarter ended September 30, 2013.
The Company reported revenues of $111.1 million for the second quarter ended September 30, 2013, a decrease of four percent versus $116.1 million reported in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Net income for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $10.1 million, a decrease of 36 percent compared with net income of $15.7 million for the fiscal 2013 second quarter. On a GAAP basis, fully diluted earnings per share for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $0.17, a decline of 35 percent from $0.26 reported in the comparable quarter a year ago. On a non-GAAP basis, fully diluted earnings per share for the fiscal 2014 second quarter was $0.22, a decline of 29 percent from $0.31 for the comparable quarter a year ago (non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share is reconciled to its corresponding GAAP measure at the end of this release).
The Company commenced reporting non-GAAP earnings per share this quarter, as a supplement to the reported GAAP earnings per share, as management of the Company believes that the non-GAAP measurement provides readers of the financial statements with enhanced disclosure of the Company’s operating performance exclusive of select non-cash items and other exceptional costs.
During the quarter, the Company completed the acquisition of Mirth Corporation, a global leader in health information technology that aids in achieving interoperability and fosters connectivity. The acquisition enhances the Company’s current enterprise interoperability initiatives while broadening its accountable and collaborative care, population health, disease management and clinical data exchange offerings.
“The second quarter results are indicative that the reorganization plan we put in place during fiscal 2013 is beginning to gain traction. During this time, we employed a range of new techniques to foster leads, and over the past two quarters, these initiatives started to reap results. In the first half of this fiscal year, we saw our leads grow and pipeline increase. This quarter, revenue, bookings and systems sales all increased versus the 2014 first quarter. For the first time in five quarters, we are pleased to see sequential improvement across all these categories,” noted Steven T. Plochocki, Quality Systems’ President and Chief Executive Officer.
“Additionally, the acquisition of Mirth was well received by our clients and the marketplace. Mirth is bringing state-of-the-art interoperability technology to our clients and the marketplace, which not only strengthens our competitive position, but also brings new potential products and opens the doors for expansion across other market segments in the future. We are quickly integrating Mirth’s expertise and believe it will be a strong contributor in fiscal year 2015,” Plochocki added.
Quality Systems also announced that its Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of Seventeen and One-Half Cents ($0.175) per share on the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, payable to shareholders of record as of December 13, 2013 with an anticipated distribution date of January 3, 2014. The $0.175 per share cash dividend is pursuant to the Company’s current policy to pay a regular quarterly dividend on the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock, subject to 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, including but not limited to, 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, net income, earnings per share and the anticipated benefits of the acquisition of Mirth Corporation). Risks and uncertainties exist that may cause the results to differ materially from those set forth in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause the anticipated results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements include failure to successfully integrate the operations, technology, infrastructure or employees of Mirth Corporation into the Company; and additional risks and uncertainties are set forth in Part I, Item A of our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013, including but not limited to: 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; impact of incentive payments under The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on sales and the ability of the Company to meet continued certification requirements; 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; changes of accounting estimates and assumptions used to prepare the prior periods' financial statements; and general economic conditions. A significant portion of the Company's quarterly sales of software product licenses and computer hardware is concluded in the last month of a 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.
USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
This news release contains certain non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measures which are provided only as supplemental information. Investors should consider these non-GAAP financial measures only in conjunction with the comparable GAAP financial measures. These non-GAAP measures are not in accordance with or a substitute for, U.S. GAAP. Pursuant to the requirements of Regulation G, the Company has provided a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measure in the accompanying financial tables. Other companies may calculate non-GAAP measures differently than Quality Systems, which limits comparability between companies.
The Company believes that its presentation of non-GAAP measures, such as non-GAAP diluted earnings per share and Days Sales Outstanding (“DSO”), provide useful supplemental information to investors and management regarding the Company's financial condition and results. The Company calculates non-GAAP diluted earnings per share by excluding acquisition costs, amortization of acquired intangible assets, proxy contest expense, and share-based compensation from GAAP income before provision for income taxes. The Company calculates DSO by annualizing (multiplying by four) net revenue for the quarter and then dividing by 365 days to yield an average daily sales amount. The balance of accounts receivable, net of any reserves for bad debts, is then divided by that average daily sales amount resulting in the DSO.
