Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2013 Results

16:30 EDT Thursday, July 25, 2013

MOBILE, Ala. (Business Wire) -- Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI):

Highlights:

  • Revenues of $53.3 million;
  • 12-month backlog of $158.4 million;
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.77;
  • Cash provided by operations of $1.3 million; and
  • Quarterly dividend of $0.51 per share.

Computer Programs and Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPSI), a leading provider of healthcare information solutions, today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a regular quarterly cash dividend of $0.51 (fifty-one cents) per share, payable on August 23, 2013, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 8, 2013.

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, were $53.3 million, compared with total revenues of $45.7 million for the prior-year second quarter. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, increased 2.7% to $8.5 million, or $0.77 per diluted share, compared with $8.3 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter of 2013 was $1.3 million, compared with $3.0 million for the prior-year second quarter. Cash collections for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, were $46.1 million, compared with cash collections of $44.2 million for the prior-year second quarter.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013, were $102.8 million, compared with total revenues of $90.2 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2013, increased 10.9% to $15.4 million, or $1.39 per diluted share, compared with $13.9 million, or $1.26 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Cash provided by operations for the first half of 2013 was $6.8 million, compared with $11.5 million for the prior-year period. Cash collections for the first half of 2013 were $89.2 million, compared with cash collections of $88.1 million for the prior-year period.

During 2012, the Company installed systems under contracts for which a portion of the consideration was to be received and revenue recognized in subsequent periods upon hospitals successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation. Although the related system installations were substantially completed during 2012, the total remaining accumulated unrecognized revenue related to such contracts as of June 30, 2013, was approximately $3.8 million.

For the first half of 2013, current financing receivables increased $23.3 million as a result of extended payment terms for new system installations during the first six months of 2013. Under the extended payment terms, payment consideration is being deferred until the earlier of successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation or over a 12-month period beginning two years from the date of installation. Based on its experience with similar installations, the Company anticipates the average payment term of these receivables will be nine months from the date of installation. Revenue for these installations is recognized when the installation is complete.

CPSI's 12-month backlog as of June 30, 2013, was $158.4 million, consisting of $43.4 million in non-recurring system purchases and $115.0 million in recurring payments for support, Business Management Services and SAAS contracts. The backlog amounts exclude amounts to be recognized in subsequent periods upon hospitals successfully achieving Meaningful Use designation.

A listen-only simulcast and replay of CPSI's second quarter 2013 conference call will be available on-line at the Company's website, www.cpsinet.com, on July 26, 2013, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Cash Flow Information
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 1,254 $ 2,991 $ 6,776 $ 11,542
Net cash used in investing activities (783 ) (1,158 ) (2,781 ) (2,744 )
Net cash used in financing activities (5,692 ) (5,172 ) (11,324 ) (10,243 )
 
Free Cash Flow
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 1,254 $ 2,991 $ 6,776 $ 11,542
Less: Purchases of capital assets   (759 )   (1,123 )   (2,747 )   (1,672 )
Free cash flow $ 495   $ 1,868   $ 4,029   $ 9,870  
 

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure which CPSI defines as net cash provided by operating activities less purchases of capital assets. The most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is net cash provided by operating activities. The Company believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and uses this measure as an indication of the financial resources of the Company and its ability to generate cash.
