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

16:30 EDT Thursday, October 31, 2013

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

Highlights:

  • Revenues of $46.8 million;
  • 12-month backlog of $163.4 million;
  • Earnings per diluted share of $0.66;
  • Cash provided by operations of $7.5 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 third quarter and nine months ended September 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 November 22, 2013, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 8, 2013.

Total revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, increased 4% to $46.8 million, compared with total revenues of $45.2 million for the prior-year third quarter. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, increased 5% to $7.3 million, or $0.66 per diluted share, compared with $6.9 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Cash provided by operations for the third quarter of 2013 was $7.5 million, compared with $6.4 million for the prior-year third quarter. Cash collections for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013, were $44.2 million, compared with cash collections of $42.7 million for the prior-year third quarter.

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, increased 10% to $149.6 million, compared with total revenues of $135.4 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, increased 9% to $22.7 million, or $2.05 per diluted share, compared with $20.8 million, or $1.88 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Cash provided by operations for the first nine months of 2013 was $14.3 million, compared with $18.0 million for the prior-year period. Cash collections for the first nine months of 2013 were $133.3 million, compared with cash collections of $130.8 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 September 30, 2013, was approximately $3.7 million.

For the first nine months of 2013, current financing receivables increased $24.3 million as a result of extended payment terms for new system installations during that period. Under the extended payment terms, payment consideration is deferred until the earlier of the customer 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 September 30, 2013, was $163.4 million, consisting of $48.1 million in non-recurring system purchases and $115.3 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 third quarter 2013 conference call will be available on-line at the Company's website, www.cpsi.com, on November 1, 2013, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time.

Cash Flow Information
Net cash provided by operating activities $ 7,546 $ 6,413 $ 14,322 $ 17,955
Net cash used in investing activities (578 ) (726 ) (3,360 ) (3,470 )

Less: Purchases of capital assets   (568 )   (652 )   (3,316 )   (2,324 )
Free cash flow $ 6,978   $ 5,761   $ 11,006   $ 15,631  
 

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.
