CSI Reports Record Second Quarter Revenues And Net Income

October 4, 2013

Revenues Increase for 37th Consecutive Quarter

PADUCAH, Ky., Oct. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) today reported record revenues and net income for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended August 31, 2013.

Second quarter revenues rose 11.1% to $54.0 million in fiscal 2014 compared with $48.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Second quarter net income increased 6.8% to $6.5 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared with $6.1 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013.

“CSI’s record results for the second quarter benefited from higher processing revenues generated from our core processing customers and record transaction volume from our regulatory compliance services,” stated Chief Executive Officer Steven A. Powless. “This quarter marked our 37(th) consecutive quarter of revenue growth, and our outlook for the second half of fiscal 2014 remains positive based on our pipeline of new business, high contract renewal rates and solid growth in transaction volume.”

“Our focus remains on driving revenue growth through our expanded sales and marketing programs,” Powless continued. “We increased our sales force as part of our Strategic Growth Initiative (SGI), and it has been successful in expanding our geographic reach to a national presence as well as increasing cross-sales of products and services to existing customers.”

During the second quarter, CSI’s Board of Directors approved a 14.3% increase in the quarterly cash dividend to $0.16 per share and authorized a $5.0 million increase in the Company’s share repurchase program. The increased dividend marked the 25(th) consecutive year of increasing CSI’s cash dividend. The dividend was paid on September 25, 2013, to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 3, 2013. The increase in the share repurchase program brought the total authorized for share repurchase to $70 million since CSI’s share repurchase program was initially announced in March 2004.

Second Quarter Results

Second quarter consolidated revenues rose 11.1% to $54.0 million compared with $48.6 million for the second quarter ended August 31, 2012. Processing revenues increased 10.5% to $34.0 million compared with $30.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The growth in processing revenues reflects sales to new customers, cross-sales to existing customers and increases in transaction volumes from existing customers, partially offset by lost business. Second quarter fiscal 2014 processing revenue included $1.2 million in early contract termination fees compared with $51,000 in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The early termination fees were due primarily to former customers being acquired by other non-customer financial institutions.

Other revenues rose 12.1% to $20.0 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 and accounted for 37.1% of total revenues compared with $17.9 million, or 36.7% of total revenues, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Other revenue growth benefited from higher sales of Internet and mobile banking services, growth in homeland security and fraud prevention services, higher eBusiness group revenues, and higher forms and envelope revenue within our Document Services Division.

Second quarter operating income rose 9.0% to $10.7 million compared with $9.8 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Operating margin for the second quarter was 19.8% compared with 20.2% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013. The decrease in operating margin was due primarily to the ramp up of expenses related to the SGI launched in fiscal 2012, most of which have been incurred. In addition, expenses increased for equipment and travel related to the build out of our national sales team, increased fees related to growth in our ATM and debit card business, and higher network communications compared with the second quarter of last year.

Net income increased 6.8% to $6.5 million in the second quarter compared with $6.1 million in fiscal 2013. Net income per fully diluted share rose 9.8% to $0.45 in the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared with $0.41 in fiscal 2013. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding were down 1.6% to 14.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2014 compared to the same period of fiscal 2013 due primarily to CSI shares repurchased under the Company’s share repurchase program. CSI repurchased 213,676 shares during the first half of fiscal 2014, including 129,606 in the second quarter. CSI had approximately $2.7 million available under existing stock purchase authorizations outstanding as of August 31, 2013.

“CSI’s balance sheet remained strong with $3.3 million in cash and no long-term debt at August 31, 2013,” Powless said. “We used our strong cash flow to reduce debt, increase CSI’s cash dividend, repurchase CSI shares and invest in new hardware and software to support our continued growth. During the second quarter, we invested about $2.2 million in new equipment and software, and we returned $6.0 million to shareholders in cash dividends and stock repurchases.”

Six Month Results

Consolidated revenues for the first six months of fiscal 2014 rose 9.5% to a record $105.8 million compared with $96.6 million for the same period in fiscal 2013. CSI’s growth in revenues benefited from growth in processing and other revenues.

Operating income rose 7.1% to $20.7 million for the first six months of fiscal 2014 compared with $19.3 million for the same period in fiscal 2013. Operating margin was 19.6% in the first six months of fiscal 2014 compared with 20.0% in the same period of fiscal 2013.

Net income for the first six months of fiscal 2014 rose 4.9% to $12.5 million compared with $11.9 million in the first six months of fiscal 2013. Net income per diluted share increased 6.2% to $0.86 for the first six months of fiscal 2014 compared with $0.81 for the same period of fiscal 2013.
