  • Provision for income taxes increased 11% in the fourth quarter compared to the same quarter in fiscal 2015, but was 27.4% of income before income taxes this quarter compared to 32.1% of income before income taxes for the same period in fiscal 2015.  The drop in effective tax rate for the quarter was due primarily to a significant difference in the book versus tax basis in Alogent stock sold in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2016.
  • Provision for income taxes increased 6% for fiscal 2016, although the effective rate decreased to 31.0% of income before income taxes from 33.3% for the twelve months ending June 30, 2015.  The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily due to the sale of subsidiary stock, as well as the retroactive extension of the Research and Experimentation Credit ("R&E Credit") to January 1, 2015 during fiscal 2016.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Review

  • At June 30, 2016, cash and cash equivalents decreased to $70.3 million from $148.3 million at June 30, 2015.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "Our capitalized software decreased significantly this quarter on a sequential basis, as we wrapped up some major projects and are in the process of starting new ones.  We will continue to invest primarily in the areas of electronic payments, mobile offerings and other new products; along with other offerings that will drive additional future revenue and provide a solid return for our investors. The sale of Alogent discussed above did drive a large gain in the quarter and added $.22 to EPS (net of related expenses) for the quarter and fiscal year, however the loss of the revenue will create a head wind for us next fiscal year. Quarterly revenue headwinds will be Q'1: $6,425, Q'2: $8,251, Q'3: $7,657 and Q'4: $6,089 for the total fiscal year impact of $28,422. We continue to have a strong cash position and balance sheet for potential acquisitions, stock buy-backs, dividends, and continued investment in the company."
