Jack Henry & Associates Second Quarter Fiscal 2013 Ends With 5% Increase In Net Income

MONETT, Mo., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY), a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry, today announced second quarter fiscal 2013 results with a 9% increase in revenue, an increase of 14% in gross profit and a 5% increase in net income over the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  For the first six months of fiscal 2013, revenue increased 9%, with an increase of 12% in gross profit, and an increase of 11% in net income compared to last year.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, the company generated total revenue of $278.7 million compared to $255.9 million in the same quarter a year ago.  Gross profit increased to $122.2 million from $107.4 million in the second quarter of last fiscal year.  Net income in the current quarter was $40.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $38.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the same quarter a year ago.

For the first half of fiscal 2013, total revenue of $549.7 million was generated compared to $504.2 million in the first half of fiscal 2012. Gross profit increased to $238.2 million compared to $211.8 million during the same period last fiscal year. Net income for the first half of fiscal 2013 totaled $83.0 million, or $0.96 per diluted share, compared to $75.0 million, or $0.86 per diluted share for the same six months in fiscal 2012.

Included within operating expenses are $13.7 million of expenses related to the impact of widespread flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy on our Lyndhurst, New Jersey item processing center.  The impact of this is shown below.

According to Jack Prim, CEO, "Our performance was very strong on multiple fronts in the quarter including gross margin improvement, backlog growth, electronic payments and OutLink revenue growth, as well as overall organic revenue growth.  These results however were somewhat masked by the unusual events in the quarter, but should be clearer with the additional disclosure included in this press release."

Operating Results

"We continue to have a very good fiscal 2013 with both the quarter and first six months providing record revenue and gross profit compared to any respective periods in our history.  We also would have had record operating income for the quarter if not for the expenses related to Lyndhurst discussed in this release," stated Tony Wormington, President.  "Support and Services revenue was once again the primary driver of our total revenue growth with 11% growth within that revenue line for the quarter compared to last year.  We continue to see strong growth in every component within this line with the primary driver again being our electronic payments."

License revenue for the second quarter decreased to $13.2 million, or 5% of second quarter total revenue, from $13.6 million, or 5% of second quarter total revenue a year ago.  Support and service revenue increased 11% to $250.3 million, or 90% of total revenue in second quarter of fiscal 2013 from $225.6 million, or 88% of total revenue for the same period a year ago.  Within support and service revenue, electronic payment services (which include ATM/debit/credit card transaction processing, bill payment, remote deposit capture and ACH transaction processing services) had the largest growth of $15.2 million or 18% in the second quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago.  Hardware sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 decreased 9% to $15.2 million (5% of total revenue), from $16.7 million (7% of total revenue) in the second quarter of last fiscal year.

For the first half of fiscal 2013, license revenue increased 1% to $26.1 million from $25.8 million a year ago. License revenue was 5% of total revenue in both periods.  There was growth in all components of support and service revenue in the first half of fiscal 2013 resulting in an 11% increase in support and service revenue, which expanded to $494.9 million in the first half of fiscal 2013 from $445.9 million for the same period a year ago. Support and service as a percentage of total revenue increased slightly to 90% of fiscal 2013 first half revenue from 88% last year. Hardware sales in the first six months of fiscal 2013 decreased 12% to $28.7 million, or 5% of total revenue, from $32.5 million, or 6% of total revenue, in the same period last year.

Cost of sales for the second quarter increased 5% to $156.5 million from $148.4 million for the second quarter in fiscal 2012.  Gross profit increased 14% to $122.2 million for the second quarter this fiscal year from $107.4 million last year.  Gross margin was 44% for the second quarter, compared to 42% in the same period last year.

Gross margin on license revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2013 was 91% compared to 92% in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  For the six months ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 gross margin on license was 91%.  The change in license gross margin for the quarter is a result of fluctuations in the sales mix of products delivered.  Support and service gross margin was 42% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, up from 40% in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.  The support and service gross margin was 42% for the six month periods ending December 31, 2012 compared to 40% in the same period last year.

Hardware gross margins were 31% for the second quarter of this fiscal year and the same quarter last year.  Hardware gross margins decreased to 27% for the six month period this fiscal year, from 29% in the six month period last fiscal year.

Operating expenses increased 35% in the second quarter of fiscal 2013 compared to the same quarter a year ago primarily due to expenses related to the flooding at our Lyndhurst, New Jersey item processing center which are included within general and administrative costs. The impact of this on our financial results is noted in the table below.  Selling and marketing expenses increased 10% in the current year second quarter to $19.9 million from $18.2 million, and was 7% of total revenue in both periods.  Research and development expenses increased 4% to $15.7 million, or 6% of total revenue, from $15.1 million (also 6% of total revenue) in the second quarter in fiscal 2012.  General and administrative costs increased 103% in the current year second quarter, or just 1%* excluding the Lyndhurst, New Jersey expenses in the quarter mentioned above, to $27.2 million, or 10% of total revenue, from $13.4 million, or 5% of total revenue, in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

According to Kevin Williams, CFO, "the results for our second fiscal quarter were ahead of our internal budget and consensus estimates without the impact of the two different events that occurred during the quarter.  Normal operations produced diluted earnings per share of $0.54, which was increased by $0.03 from the release of tax benefits mentioned below to the $0.57 reflected in the table above, but then decreased by $0.10 for the impact of the natural disaster during the quarter to result in the reported $0.47 for the quarter."

For the first half of fiscal 2013, operating expenses increased 19% to $111.2 million, compared to $93.3 million for the same period a year ago, primarily due to the Lyndhurst, New Jersey expenses noted above. Selling and marketing expenses increased 9% in the six months ended December 31, 2012 to $40.1 million from $36.9 million in the prior year, and remained at 7% of revenue for both fiscal years.

Operating income decreased 2% to $59.4 million, or 21% of second quarter revenue, compared to $60.8 million, or 24% of revenue in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.    Provision for income taxes decreased 15% in the current second quarter compared to the same quarter in fiscal 2012 and is 30.6% of income before income taxes this quarter compared to 35.2% of income before income taxes for the same period in fiscal 2012.  The decrease was due primarily to the release of $2.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, of previously unrecognized tax benefits during the current quarter subsequent to the close of Internal Revenue Service audits.  Second quarter net income totaled $40.5 million, or $0.47 per diluted share, compared to $38.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share in the second quarter of fiscal 2012.

Operating income increased 7% to $126.9 million for the first six months of fiscal 2013 compared to $118.6 million for the same period a year ago.
